WWE's comedy characters topped the company's worst feuds of 2013.
Bullfighters took on wannabe rockers; a ballroom dancer battled a goofy giant. Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels, this was not.
At its best, WWE is a strange blend of Shakespearean drama, circus-like acrobatics and a bar fight. At its worst, its humor sputters and the action in the ring draws out yawns. The year's least appealing offerings showed fans numerous examples of WWE's most unfavorable qualities.
Part of the disinterest created with these stories can be blamed on the performers, just as blame must also belong to WWE's writers who gave these Superstars little to work with.
The most inferior rivalries of 2013 are ranked here based on the lack of quality matches, the tepidness of the chemistry between the wrestlers as well as the ineffectiveness of the story and the stakes involved.
Each of those categories is graded out of five. Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat-level chemistry is a five while Fandango and The Great Khali's work together earns a one, for example.
The lowest total "wins."
