Top 15 Worst WCW World Television Champions

The World Championship Wrestling Television Championship was one of the more interesting titles that the now defunct company had in place for years. What was supposed to be a championship that was routinely defended on television programs such as Monday Nitro was, according to storylines, sometimes on the line overseas when only those inside of arenas were watching. A champion would sometimes be stripped of the title for one reason or another, only to then appear in a tournament and win back the title that was, if this was a legitimate sport, rightfully his in the first place.

What one must remember when examining the best and worst World Television Champions in the history of WCW is that the company does not technically go all the way back to the National Wrestling Alliance. It was not until 1988 when the name that was originally associated with a television show became linked with a promotion that, after early struggles, eventually became a legitimate threat to the WWE. Just think that it only took four years for WCW to go from being the top wrestling organization on the planet to one that was no longer in business. Crazy.

It should come as no surprise to anybody who was following the company at the time that the two worst WCW World Television Champions come from the dying days of the organization. One of them, per the story that was told by the company, found the World Television Championship to be such an anchor and a meaningless title that he decided to literally throw the belt away. The man who retrieved the championship was technically the last man to carry the title, as it was ultimately forgotten about during the reboot that was hoped to be a savior of WCW, one that did barely kept the company afloat through March of 2001.

“Hacksaw” Jim Duggan was a fine worker who could put on entertaining matches even at the point when he was past his prime in WCW. It is the way that he “won” the championship and not anything to do with his talent that makes him the worst WCW World Television Champion in history. Duggan located the belt that has been tossed into the garbage by the previously mentioned Scott Hall, and thus he was the new champion. Seriously. That is how WCW viewed belts in the year 2000. It is almost impossible to imagine that the company would be dead roughly one year after Duggan's discovery.
