                      Pretty sure Rey Mysterio hated his first run with the title. They kept on booking him against much bigger opponents and had him lose pretty much every non title fight just in order to make him be the underdog at the next PPV. On PPV he than won his title match with a surprise roll up or something. ... Great way to book your champion.

                          Fun fact: Eddie Guerrero was supposed to beat Batista and Mr Kennedy in a triple threat match and win the world heavyweight title on the smackdown the week he died.

                            Triple H didn't even think if Kevin Owens actually hated his reign as Universal Champion

                                        I would imagine Rollins down the road not liking his last Universal run. It was marred by Baron Corbin, Baron Corbin and Baron Corbin with a heavy touch of Becky Lynch.

                                        Probably the worst title run for the belt since it’s inception.

                                          trouble is current champs one feels like champs having to carry around a plastic toy.. they need to make the belts look important, make them gold again. The Mystery of Darkness was indeed one of wwe's best storylines...i wanted them to win all the belts.

                                            @Buttercup III they don't need two tag belts, two womans belts (unless one became a womans IC belt) and they don't need two wwe belts. t

                                            They have too many main roster belts. They need to either consolidate them or re-establish a hard brand split/remove the wild card

He had the belt for like a month before they even let him cut a promo on TV, whereas HHH and Vince seemed like they were in every other segment building their Armageddon match. Show was the first champion I can remember at least to be booked like a complete afterthought, and to me kinda started the trend of those wrestlers who get the belt but aren’t really treated like the guy. When really, if you aren’t prepared to treat them like a big deal, why are you even giving them the title in the first place?

                                                                                  He deserved to make the list!!!

                                                                                  Im not convinced all the people who claim to have loved him now gave much of a damn back then either...but his death gave people rose tinted specs.
                                                                                  Similarly..Senna. unbelievably skilled driver..at the time as a British f1 fan, senna was pretty much a heel everyone loved to hate. His ruthlessness (or even cheating) helped this image...then he tragically died...and everyone remembers adoring him...which just aint true!
