It's an interesting time to be a WWE fan.

Had you predicted earlier this year that Jinder Mahal would be challenging Randy Orton for the WWE title, you probably would've been considered clinically insane. The WWE, however, is pushing Mahal hard in order to capitalize on the huge professional wrestling fanbase in India.

For the casual WWE fan, however, a Mahal title reigns wouldn't be the most exciting angle to sit back and watch. The feud between him and Orton as of late hasn't been the most entertaining either.

If Mahal were to win the WWE Title it would most likely be the beginning of one of the worst reigns of all time.

With that being said, there have been some pretty terrible WWE title reigns throughout the years, and in the midst of another one possibly being on the way, let's take a look back at the top five worst WWE title reigns of all time.

5. The Miz

In November of 2010, The Miz cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase on Randy Orton and became the WWE Champion. While not many people expected that he'd hold the title through Wrestlemania, his reign actually lasted a whopping 160 days.

He even successfully defended his title against John Cena in the main event of Wrestlemania 27, which was probably one of the worst Wrestlemania main events of all time. All that being said, The Miz's WWE Title reigns was just bad.

4. Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns is one of the most hated WWE Superstars of all time, and when 'The Big Dog' reigned as the WWE's top champ fans were not pleased, to say the least. Reigns defeated his former Shield member, Dean Ambrose, in the finals of a championship tournament at Survivor Series in 2015 to win his first career world title.

When the crowd is booing you out of the building everytime you hit the ring, however, it must makes the title reign a little cringing to watch.

3. Jack Swagger

Jack Swagger had all the promise in the world to be the WWE's next Kurt Angle. The 6'5 former wrestler won the Money In The Bank briefcase at Wrestlemania 26 and cashed in just two days later on Chris Jericho at SmackDown to win the World Heavyweight Title.

Swagger's reigns as camp suffered due to poor booking as he amassed a record of 5-12 during his championship tenure. That is just pathetic.

2. The Great Khali

One of the worst title reigns of all time definitely belongs to The Great Khali. He won the title during a battle royal after Edge was forced to vacate it due to injury. He held the strap for only two months before dropping it to Batista.

Khali's ring work was terrible as he couldn't perform for very long and put on a decent match. Down the road, he was used as nothing more than a comedic prop with 'Khali kiss cams' and more nonsense. Quite the Shakespearian fall.

1. Vince McMahon

The worst WWE World Title reign of all time goes to none other than 'The Chairman Of The Board' Vince McMahon. McMahon defeated Triple H for the WWF Title on a 1999 episode of SmackDown after interference from Stone Cold Steve Austin.

McMahon decided to vacate the title a week later due to a contract stipulation from a previous angle. For a promotion to put the title on its own owner is just a crummy move, and the fact it only lasted a week made it even more of a joke.
