WWE and WCW: The 5 Most Overrated Heavyweight Champions of All Time
This list excludes guys who won it once. So that means it excludes people like David Arquette, JBL, Ron Simmons, etc.
This list is specifically for wrestlers who were champion multiple times.
I understand that the champion should be multiple people, but some of these wrestlers didn’t deserve to be multiple time champions from a talent stand-point.
Being great on the microphone or being fan favorites shouldn’t equal champion. The champion should be talented in the ring, especially if they win multiple times.
The Undertaker is a superstar who should have more titles to his name. He has been in some of the most memorable matches in WWE history, yet he doesn't have five heavyweight title reigns. That is a joke!
I like everybody on this list except for number four. All of these wrestlers were great in their own specific ways. They were just extremely overrated.
So enjoy and let the debate begin!
No 5: Diamond Dallas Page
I loved Diamond Dallas Page and I loved the Diamond Cutter.
The dude was overrated, though. He won the WCW Title three times. Three times? Really?
DDP didn't have very many moves at all. I can only remember the diamond cutter.
No 4: Jeff Jarrett
Jeff Jarrett won the WCW Title multiple times. He was overrated in WCW. Don't even ask me what he is doing in TNA because I have no idea, I don't watch it.
I heard he was champion multiple times which only helps my case. He isn't athletic, has few "great" moves and doesn't "wow" me with his ability to perform.
Maybe in TNA he did or is doing something, but don't even bother telling me what he has done there.
His best move was a guitar smash.....end of story.
No 3: John Cena
John Cena hasn't been in the WWE for a long time, yet he has won seven times? The attitude adjustment is okay, but the five knuckle shuffle? COME ON. It is worse than the people's elbow.
He is a great entertainer, an OK on stage performer (who isn't funny) and has been in some pretty good matches. He doesn't even compare to somebody like Shawn Michaels, though. He doesn't have that main event resume that tells me otherwise.
When I watch wrestling, the boos and cheers divide the fans in half. He is loved by the kids and I understand that. I like what he has done for the WWE in all facets, but he is severely overrated.
No 2: Hulk Hogan
I must admit before I finish this slide that Hulk Hogan was my favorite wrestler growing up. I was a Hulkamaniac.
He won multiple titles in WWE and WCW with little athletic ability. If somebody told me that Hogan won a match, I knew the ending.
It ended like this:
Hogan is in a sleeper hold. The referee picks up his arm and it drops twice. He is just one more away from losing. Suddenly, he regains life, gets to his feet, "hulks up", punches him three times, throws him off the ropes, big boots him and then the patented leg drop to finish him off.
What moves did this guy do? The body slam was the most extravagant thing he ever did. Congrats.
No 1: Ric Flair
Ric Flair was entertaining, I'll give him that. From a wrestling stand-point though, he was average. Yay, you can chop somebody in the chest and yell, "WOOOOOOOO!" I love it just as much as everybody else does.
He won the title way too many times, though. He was the "dirtiest player in the game." He was an entertainer. He was a great watch. He was also the most overrated superstar in wrestling history.
