The common thought process is that in order to be the top player in the WWE, you have to have the ability to talk on the microphone.
It's believed that if you don't have the ability to keep up with the WWE's top talkers throughout history, whether it's CM Punk or The Rock, that you won't have a chance to make it to the top of the hill. And because of this belief, some feel that guys like John Morrison or Daniel Bryan will never be a heavyweight champion in the WWE.
Well, this article will show that mic skills aren't always a necessity to be a World Champion, as we highlight the worst the talkers on the mic who eventually ended up holding the WWF/E or World Heavyweight Championship during their careers.
*Note, only those who held the World title in the WWF/E will be on this list, as opposed to those who held it in WCW/NWA. Also, wrestlers who speak a certain way because of their gimmick are also not listed, such as The Undertaker (Deadman Version), The Ultimate Warrior, Psycho Sid Vicious and Bill Goldberg.
