Recently on our We Talk Wrestling podcast I compared TNA Impact of 2012 to the early days of WCW Monday Nitro. I did this to point out that, while there were no breakout angles, Nitro felt like a fresh alternative show to the stagnant Monday Night RAW. Fast forward 17 years later and Impact is now the fresh show while RAW is once again suffering from a lack of exciting angles and programming. That got me to thinking: What was worse, WWF in 1995 or WWE today? With that question bouncing around my brain, I decided to look at a variety of factors in coming to my conclusion.
For the purposes of this I am going to look at just the WWF champions from 1995 and both the WWE and World Heavyweight Champions of 2012. Back in 1995 the WWF was running on Diesel Power and the engine was seizing. Until JBL came along in 2004, Big Daddy Cool had the distinction of being the worst drawing Champion on company history. While his matches with Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels were good, his clashes with Sid, Mabel, and Davey Boy Smith left something to be desired. Nash would lose the WWF title to Bret Hart at the Survivor Series in November and Bret would have an excellent title defense against the British Bulldog in December to close out the year.
