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?

Yeah, just like they didn't recognize Hall and Nash. Or DDP. Or Steiner. Or HBK. Or Flair. Or Booker T. Or Buff Bagwell. Man, when those guys appeared, the fans sat on their hands in absolute dead silence.
