    Why do the stormcloaks think he has the right to be High King? What's his right to the throne?

    Well, he challenged the High King to one-on-one combat, and he accepted - and was defeated by the Thu'um. According to the old Nordic ways that qualifies him for the position more than some Imperial dog.

    And he has the Thu'um. Other than that, he just seems like some random punk to me.

    I forget what his name was (which is odd, considering I've done that starting quest about 20 times now.) But yeah he's just some stormcloak guy.

    if you actually talk to ulfric about the subject, he will inform you that he did NOT shout the king to death as everybody says, but instead used his thu'um to subdue the guards, then chop up the current high king with a simple axe

    We assume he's being honest about that, though. It might be in his best interests to lie about using the Thu'um to kill the king, if it humanises him in the eyes of his subjects.
