We have reached the end of this little journey and with it comes the biggest prize in the WWE, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. This is a prestigious title that has gone back decades of history, being held by some of the greatest wrestlers in the business. Some of them, had memorable, and historic reigns… Then there are others, like today’s list that did not accomplish such a feat. It has been a long time coming, but before we finish this off with the best champions, let’s count down the Top Ten Worst WWE Champions of All Time! Continue reading “Top Ten Worst WWE Champions”
The special continues with a title belt with an interesting history; The ECW World Championship. What started out as the top belt in Extreme Championship Wrestling (formerly Eastern Championship Wrestling) was resurrected when Vince McMahon and the WWE attempted to cash in on the ECW Brand at their disposal by having their own ECW event. What started out as an honest effort to resurrect the brand quickly failed to capture the hype of the original and after the December to Dismember fiasco, was soon turned into the precursor to WWE’s NXT. The premise being several young up and comers competing with a handful of seasoned veterans until they were ready to be shuffled on to Raw or SmackDown. Out of the ECW’s titles, the World title was the only one to be revived by the ECW branding.
While considered on par with titles such as the World Heavyweight and WWE Championship, the ECW World Championship did not have the emphasis that it once did and only a small handful of the WWE’s ECW champions held the title when it was still ECW only property. But that does not mean that the title didn’t have its fair share of stars and duds to hold the strap, which is what we are looking at today.
KEEP IN MIND (DISCLAIMER) This ECW Championship list is to commemorate WWE ONLY ECW champions. So you will not be seeing Shane Douglas, Sabu, Sandman, and so forth on this list. That is a list for another day. Plus, as always if you disagree with this list which is my own personal opinion, then please leave a comment and we can discuss.
