A lot has been said recently about the lack of pushes toward certain wrestlers and the number of great wrestler who were never world champion. Both are great lists (found here and here) in that they bring up the age old arguments of who the WWE pushes, why they push some in respect to others, and why some just never seem to get their due. I highly recommend browsing through both of them.
Championship belts anymore are often compared in the IWC to worthless ornaments used to further storylines or push mid-card talent, not as wrestling's top prize meant for the best and only to be held and sought by the best. In this age of quick belt changes and champions with no staying power, it seems everybody who achieves a relative amount of success in the mid-card is guaranteed a belt. Eugene is one of many examples of wrestlers who have held belts when other more worthy superstars floundered. Let's look at some of the best wrestlers out there who, regardless of ability and popularity, never held a single belt in the WWE.
