We were getting into the whole Ultimo Dragon/J*Crown discussion, and a few other wrestlers came to mind who've also held belts in more than one promotion simultaneously. But going back to Ultimo Dragon for just a second though, during his two WCW TV Title reigns in '97 he still held the NWA World Middleweight Title that he'd held for almost three years.
--Rey Mysterio Jr. won the WWA (World Wrestling Association) World Lightweight Title on 6/15/96 from Juventud Guerrera. He then went on to win the WCW World Cruiserweight Title from Dean Malenko (7/8/96) and the WWA World Welterweight Title from Juvi (7/20/96). He held all three belts simultaneously.
--When Rey regained the WCW World Cruiserweight Title on 10/26/97 (defeating Eddie Guerrero), he still held the WWA World Lightweight Title. To my knowledge, neither WWA belt was ever shown on WCW television.
--Booker T has also accomplished the “triple title” trick, although two of those belts were WCW titles. He defeated Rick Steiner for the WCW U.S. Heavyweight Title on 3/18/01, and Scott Steiner for the WCW World Heavyweight Title on 3/26. But it's not very well-known that he won the Las Vegas Pro Wrestling UWF Heavyweight Title in an impromptu match against Don Diamond on 6/29/01 (promptly handing the belt back to Diamond). By this time, he had made his debut in the WWF, but had not yet given the U.S. Title to Kanyon.
--The Steiner Brothers defeated The Fabulous Freebirds on 2/18/91 to win the WCW World Tag Team Championship. They then defeated Hiroshi Hase and Kensuke Sasaki to win the IWGP World Tag Team Championship, and held both tag-team titles simultaneously. The Steiner Brothers repeated the feat the following year, winning the WCW belts from Arn Anderson and Bobby Eaton (5/3/92) and the IWGP belts from Bam Bam Bigelow and Big Van Vader (6/26/92). By the way, did they call the team of Bigelow and Vader “The Two Fatasses”? Those two guys seem made for each other.
--Dirty Dick Slater and Bunkhouse Buck won the WCW World Tag Team Championship from Harlem Heat on 6/21/95. During his reign as a WCW tag-team champion, Dick Slater also held the IWA (International Wrestling Association) World Heavyweight Title, as he was that promotion's first champion.
Can anyone think of another non-Invasion example in recent history?(edited by ekedolphin on 16.8.02 1002)

|There was that whole debacle with the "Unified" World Title involving the AWA and World Class Heavyweight titles. Of course that was co-promotion. And ended disastrously.|

Jerry Lawler defeated Kerry Von Erich to capture the World Class Championship belt in a title for title match. At the time, Lawler was the AWA World Champion.
