Over the decades, WWE has given us some amazing feuds. We’ve seen the greatest stars in wrestling go at it hard in fantastic battles over the years. HHH, Shawn Michaels, the Rock, John Cena, the Undertaker, they have given fans some terrific battles and feuds that are still talked about today to elevate the business. A great feud sells tickets, picks up ratings and keeps fans talking to enjoy wrestling in all its ways.
But we’re not talking about those here.
No, these are for some of the worst feuds WWE has provided. Some are just horrible due to those involved while others had promise but just faltered. Some just make you shake your heads watching, others you can’t look away from like a train wreck. They dragged on too long, demanded far more attention than they deserved and quite often hurt guys badly as they went. Here are the 15 worst “rivalries” in WWE history and how bad wrestling can be.
15 DX vs the McMahons
14 Kane vs Anyone
13 Doink vs Bam Bam Bigelow
12 Brie Bella vs Nikki Bella
11 Tatanka vs Ludwig Borga
10 Diesel vs Mabel
9 Hulk Hogan vs Zeus
8 Big Show vs the Big Bossman
7 The Ultimate Warrior vs Papa Shango
6 John Cena vs John Laurinaitis
5 HHH vs Scott Steiner
4 The Undertaker vs Giant Gonzalez
3 Chavo Guerrero vs Hornswoggle
2 Jerry Lawler vs Michael Cole
1 WWE vs The Alliance
It was supposed to be the big battle, the clash fans had dreamed of for years. When WCW went under, Vince bought it and there seemed the promise of the company continuing as a “side promotion.” This led to the “Invasion” as WCW joined with ECW to take the WWF down. However, the big problem was that so many of the bigger WCW names (Hogan, Nash, Hall, Goldberg, Sting) weren’t coming along, happy to sit back and let their old contracts run out. Thus, as the “Monday Night War” series put it, you had WCW “invaded by Thunder.”
It wasn’t helped by how Vince decided to mess things up by having Shane and Stephanie become the “Owners” of the Alliance and Stone Cold Steve Austin joining them as well. WCW was immediately made to look weak and it bore out as WWF would dominate totally in all the battles, WCW’s victories few and far between and more WWF guys “joining” them. For six months, it dragged on, just a terrible waste of potential and all ending with, of course, WWF victorious. Ironically, the follow-up of Ric Flair becoming the new co-owner of WWF was far better than all that came before it and the Invasion ranks as one of the worst blow-outs ever in wrestling history and amazing to see how badly it all ended up.
