It is finally done. What was supposed to be a few weeks turned into the better part of a year. But we have reached the final 10, the creme-della-creme. The best that ever was in professional wrestling. Believe me this list was not taken lightly. Each of the top ten have switched spots more than once. But at the end of the day this is the final lock. These are the ten wrestlers who honestly represent the best and the brightest. To see the rest of the list, please follow the links below.
Before we go forward, I should preface this list with the fact that I am not going to be covering ALL the belts that were featured in WCW and ECW. As a matter of fact, I will only be looking at the championships as well as a few other choice belts that I feel need to be covered. I also will not be covering the secondary titles in WCW and ECW because I feel that secondary titles are meant to enhance talent to the next stage which is of course the Championship and since both belts are now defunked, the secondary titles prestige and lineage are somewhat moot.
After saying that, I would like to cover the championship belt from WCW that was every bit as prestigious and important as the WCW Championship was back in the day. No joke when I was watching wrestling as a kid, I typically saw the person holding the Cruiserweight championship as the true champion of WCW instead of the slow plodding old guys that dominated the World title scene. I would take 1 Ultimo Dragon and Chris Jericho over 10000 geriatric Hulk Hogans and slow and awkward Kevin Nashs. The Cruiserweight division was just more fun and it had athletes who were small, quick, and excellent wrestlers. I am very much happy that it is people who found their home in this division that are now seen as the true World Champions instead of slow fat guys smacking each other. So of course when I talk about former WCW Championships, this one is easily the first that comes to mind. So here is the Top 5 Best and Worst WCW Cruiserweight Champions.
Keep in mind as always that this is my personal opinion based on the title reign’s impact on the championship and the wrestler. If you have a different opinion please add a comment and we will debate. With that said, we start with the worst. Continue reading
