I'll say VKM but it is important to note that Nash didn't draw at all when he was the champ, Garden attendances were pretty low

To me, The Miz as champ was a joke.

The real question is Khali Vs. Arquette Vs. Russo

Which one was the worst "Big Gold Belt" Champion?

Has to be Arquette. That was just ****ing stupid.

Worst WWE champ was Andre The Giant, I don't even know why anyone hasn't mentioned this yet. The original screw job.

Andre is one of the biggest names in wrestling history.

How is Andre the worst champion? That screw job was hilarious and at that point, Andre was the one of the biggest reasons why the business was able to go national. Vinnie Mac winning the title was the worst because it just didn't make any sense since he was 'banned from WWF TV' at the time.

And never won the title legitimately. And when he did "win" the title, it was immediately vacated. That's pretty crazy. I'm pretty sure he was champion for less days than Vince.

Andre is one of the most famous wrestlers of all time, come on now.

Khali has no place in wrestling, let alone winning a belt.

Just saying they gave him the worst WWF/WWE title reign.

This might need split up into two categories. Worst CHAMPION and Worst TITLE REIGN.

he was also so old and broken down by the time he joined the WWF he was pretty much reduced to being a side show...

I saw the early part of Andre's career as well as his WWF tenure as I'm a middle aged guy who watched young. Although he wasn't the technician others might be, he had a wealth of experience in the business and in the ring to draw from. I'm halfway through Bret Hart's bestseller "Hitman" and have gained a new respect for the Giant. According to Bret, Andre was the ring general and called most matches he was involved in. In a match against the Hitman, apparently Bret was concerned about how he would work with someone so big. Andre called everything in the ring and made it a tremendous match.

didnt Kane had like a one night reign in the attitude era?
when the feud was more of a Austin vs McMachon with Undertaker... and kane.

could be wrong, going by memory since you guys posted the most obvious.

and remember the undisputed title when HHH won at WM18...
next month lost to Hogan, who next month lost to Taker... very weird and useless runs, burying Jericho who was the champ before them.

yes. Kane had a first blood match against Austin at KOTR '98 and Undertaker inadvertently busted open Austin. Austin challenged Kane the next night on RAW and won the title back

My vote will go to the Ultimate Warrior. For all I've read in books, news articles, blogs and such, not a bigger POS has been WWE/WWF champion than he.

Non-existent wrestling ability, huge ego built by Vince due to his love of chiseled bodybuilders, and horrendous attitude thinking he was above everyone. The story of the Make-A-Wish kid tops it off.
There must be a special place in hell for people like that.

I've read from more than one source that a Make A Wish kid propped up on a stretcher, bald from chemo treatments, looking sickly and breathing from a ventilator was waiting with his mom and dad outside the dressing room during a show in Omaha. Wearing Warriors facepaint and a Warrior t-shirt with colored tassels around his arms, his last wish was to meet the guy. By the third match of the night a WWF pr rep came into the dressing room and asked him if he was ready to meet him. His repy? "In a f'ing minute." He made them wait all night long. But Hogan, Andre, Savage, and many others with far more talent and compassion took the time to spend a couple minutes with him. The end of the story never really revealed if he got his wish.

I'll look for a link for it and edit my post if I find it.

It was, I'm sure I've read it elsewhere but I couldn't find it except on other forums and sources like that.

Just watched the "Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior" documentary last night and I have to say that it's hard to disagree with you. I know it's WWE produced and edited, but there's so many respectable figures like Heenan, Slaughter and Dibiase who just absolutely ripped into him as a performer and a person (it sounds like Heenan, in particular, really did not get or like Warrior).

My favorite part was when he threatened to no show his match at SummerSlam 91 (he and Hogan vs. Slaughter, Shiek, General Adnan) unless Vince paid him a huge fee upfront. Slaughter pretty much said that he and Hogan offered to Vince that they take Warrior into the locker room for 5 minutes and "fix it" or let Shiek break his leg in the match.

Slaughter was great! From what I've read he seems like a genuinely nice guy. Bret Hart wrote a couple paragraphs about him in his autobiography; honest and willing to offer advice and opinion to younger guys. It was good to see him on this past RAW. It brought back good memories of him during his AWA days when I watched him. I guess Vince had a problem with him in the past when GI Joe came out with a Slaughter action figure - the WWF had their own line of toys and apparently Vince thought Sarge belonged to him.

Vince is my choice.

Although Miz's reign sucked. Did they give him a clean win over anyone other than Lawler?

My least favourite? Anyone who can't wrestle.

While I agree that Miz's reign sucked, I'm not sure you can call it among the worst when he beat the face of the company in the main event at Wrestlemania.

This is true, but the focus of the entire build was Rock/Cena with Miz in a supporting role. It's almost like that match was just a set up for the Rock/Cena match at WM28.
