The history of the wwe championship
Transcript of The history of the wwe championship
However, on the same night Cena accomplished this incredible feat, The Second City Savior's surprise return with his own WWE Championship ignited a controversy over who was the rightful owner of the WWE Title. Per The Game, both Superstars were simultaneously the legitimate WWE Champion, and would battle at SummerSlam to determine the undisputed holder of the coveted prize. John Cena won his 10th WWE Championship and 12th overall World Title at Night of Champions, making Alberto Del Rio tap out to the STF. Cena’s record-setting night began by playing mind games with The Mexican Aristocrat, stealing the champion’s luxury automobile and using it for his own entrance. Utilizing his strength to show Del Rio the meaning of hustle, loyalty and respect — and fending off Ricardo Rodriguez — Cena walked out of Buffalo’s First Niagara Center with the WWE Title once again in his possession. John cena wins the wwe championship the first time. The history of the wwe championship is Stone Cold" Steve Austin in March 29, 1998 - June 28, 1998 The "Attitude Era" was officially ushered in on March 29, 1998 when "Stone Cold" Steve Austin defeated Shawn Michaels for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania XIV. To add to the match's intrigue, the special ring enforcer was none other than "Iron" Mike Tyson.
Michaels came into this match with a severely injured back. But he was able to suck it up and put on one of his usual classic displays. Leading up to WrestleMania, it also looked like Tyson was in HBK's corner, as Tyson even sported a D-Generation X T-shirt to the ring. Toward the end of the match, the referee got knocked out, so Tyson had to take over as the lead official. Michaels went for the Sweet Chin Music, "Stone Cold" reversed it into the Stunner, HBK then reversed it back to the Sweet Chin Music, but Austin reversed it once again and finally hit the "Stone Cold" Stunner. Then Tyson shocked the world and counted to three, revealing that he wasn't on Michaels' side all along.
At the time, this match was thought to have been Michaels' final performance, but he would come back in 2002, much to the delight of WWE fans everywhere. Just one night after losing the WWE Championship to Kane in a First Blood Match at King of the Ring, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin challenged the new champ to a rematch and won. He held on to the championship for three months before being forced to vacate it in controversial fashion — "Stone Cold" defended his WWE Championship against The Undertaker and Kane in a Triple Threat match at Breakdown. Undertaker and Kane delivered a double Chokeslam to Austin and both brothers covered for the pin. Since a true winner could not be determined, Mr. McMahon rushed off with the WWE Championship and declared it vacant. One year after defeating Shawn Michaels for his first reign as WWE Champion, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin used WrestleMania again as his platform to gain the title gold. This time, his opponent was The Rock. With Mankind serving as one of the match's many referees, "Stone Cold" Stunned The Rock to the ground and pinned him for the count of three. One month after losing the WWE Championship to The Undertaker live on pay-per-view, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin got his revenge on the June 28, 1999, edition of Monday Night Raw. This marked Austin's fourth reign as WWE Champion. Perennial fan favorite "Stone Cold" Steve Austin shocked the sports-entertainment world at WrestleMania X-Seven when he accepted the help of longtime rival Mr. McMahon. The Chairman's interference aided in "Stone" Cold defeating The Rock for the WWE Championship inside a packed Houston Astrodome. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's sixth and final reign as WWE Champion came after he defeated Kurt Angle on the Oct. 8, 2001, edition of Monday Night Raw. The victory, however, was not without controversy, as William Regal interfered on behalf of The Texas Rattlesnake, enabling him to get the win. "Stone Cold" held the championship for two months before losing it to Chris Jericho. The history of the Wwe championship of The rock in January 24, 1999 - January 31, 1999 The Rock's second reign as WWE Champion came at the hands of Mankind — the man who ended his first reign just weeks earlier. At the Royal Rumble, The Rock engaged in one of the ugliest assaults ever witnessed on WWE television when he took a steel chair to Mankind a countless number of times. The carnage enabled The Rock to win the "I Quit" Match and the WWE Championship. The Rock's WWE Championship victory over Mankind on Feb. 15, 1999, was the last time these two Superstars traded the title during their classic rivalry. The Rock's victory also came one night after he was unsuccessful in beating Mankind at the St. Valentine's Day Massacre pay-per-view in a Last Man Standing Match. The Rock held the WWE Championship for just more than one month before he lost it to "Stone Cold" Steve Austin at WrestleMania XV. Undoubtedly, The Rock has enjoyed one of the most brilliant careers in the history of sports-entertainment. He took his biggest step toward immortality when he won the Deadly Game Tournament — a 14-man tournament to crown the WWE Champion at Survivor Series.
In the finals of the tournament, The Rock defeated Mankind. It was later learned that The Rock had sided with the Shane and Mr. McMahon prior to the event. The two McMahons then ensured that their guy walked out of the pay-per-view with the WWE Championship. Triple H was able to walk out of WrestleMania earlier in the month with his WWE Championship. He couldn't do the same at Backlash. The Rock pinned The Game in the nation's capital to grab his fourth WWE Championship. He later lost the championship back to Triple H, just three weeks after winning it. The Rock captured his fifth WWE Championship without ever pinning the champion, Triple H. Pre-match stipulations for this King of the Ring tag team main event match stated that the champion did not have to be pinned to lose the title. The Rock, who was teaming with Kane and Undertaker, wound up pinning Mr. McMahon, Triple H's teammate along with Shane McMahon. The Rock's reign lasted just shy of four months. The Rock captured his sixth WWE Championship at No Way Out 2001 in Las Vegas when he defeated then-champion Kurt Angle. This match also featured interference by the Big Show. The big man took to the ring and annihilated everybody, including the referee.
