Another random thought I had...

We all know that the WWE Triple Crown is the pinnacle of the sport. That is, winning the World Heavyweight, Intercontinental and Tag Team Titles. But, what about the other titles? Hardcore, European and Cruiserweight? I did a little research and the people closest to completing the full WWE Grand Slam are:

Christian and Jeff Hardy! Both are just a World's Heavyweight Title from completing the Grand Slam!

Go figure!

Chris Jericho has held the Hardcore, European, Intercontinental, Tag-Team, and World Titles. And, if the WWE Cruiserweight Title is the former WCW Cruiserweight Title, he's held that too.

can the european really be included as it is now a defunct titile? that should put HBK in a higher status as now that title is unwinnable...

winning the Undisputed, IC and Tag titles are a feat in itself...

Personally, I count the CW title.

They kept the WCW weight class for one. Plus, X-Pac had the lightheavyweight title before he went down to an injury, while Tajiri had the WCW Cruiserweight title. Eventually, that was the only title the cruiser/lightheavyweights were fighting for. meanwhile, the LW title simply faded away due to X-pac's prolonged abasense.

Yup, Christian and Jeff Hardy only need win the World Title to have won every WWF/E belt there is to win.

You have to give Jeff a further honorable mention, though: he also held the WCW Tag Team Title during the Invasion.

Anyway.

When you consider that Chris Jericho, in addition to being a former WCW Cruiserweight Champion, is also a former WCW and ECW Television Champion, you have to consider all the belts he's won to be an outstanding accomplishment.

Other things I feel I should mention here: I believe Chris Benoit is the only person ever to legitimately hold the WWF, WCW and ECW Tag Team Titles as a member of all three federations. They'd have you believe that The Dudley Boyz deserve the credit of holding all three, but of course they were never in WCW.

And about the European Title. When you consider the fact that it was previously abandoned once in its history prior to the unification with the Intercontinental Title, you can never really say for sure that it's gone forever. Of course, last time, the belt wasn't unified with another belt. But WWE can bring back whatever belt they feel like and concoct a storyline (contrived or not) to explain it.

The Light Heavyweight/Cruiserweight title is not really viewed as a part og the Grand Slam, as is the King of the Ring.
I know that Shawn was the first grand slam champion, with the Worl, Intercontinental, Tag, and European, and ih he would have won the European again, he would have won the grandslam twice.
Hunter has won the slam and the King of Ring, which maybe puts him above shawn, but like you say Jericho has won the World, IC, Tag, European and hardcore belts, and since the Light Heavyweight became the Cruiserweight, yes I also bleive he has won that also.
Looking at the list it appears Jericho is the highest achiever. What I would like to know is who came close to the grandslam, but never made it, Owen and Davey are the first to come to mind.
Before the Slam became recognised, the triple crown was the ultimate peak, apart from Pedro Morales, Bret Hart, Diesel and Shawn, can anyone think of anyone else to hold the triple crown?, bearing inthought that they had to win it before Shawn won the grandslam.



Jesse Ventura:"He just hit him with the belt, thats a disqualifaction!, where the hell is the referee?."
Tony Schiavone:"But that's on the outside of the ring Jesse".
Jesse Ventura:"So what?, what are you going to tell me Schiavone, you can shoot somebody outside of the ring, as long as it's outside the ring?, you are even dumber than Monsoon, I thought Gorilla was the stupidest man alive!."

Edit, worth a mention

WWF Light Heavyweight as the Pegasus Kid over Villano III on 3 Mar 1991 (my 14th b-day!!!)

he lost as the Wild Pegasus to Shinjiro Ohtani to crown the WCW cruiserweight title on 20 Mar 1996
Shinjiro Ohtani also won the WWF lightheavyweight title on 10 Aug 1997 over El Samuri and was the last title holder before the WWF decided to have the Light heavyweight champ on TV and held the tourny where TAKA won the title.

Here's a disturbing one:

Test has been IC, Tag (both WWF and WCW), European and Hardcore champs. Should they ever decide to put the World title on him...

Kurt Angle has been in the wwe for a little over 2(close to 3 years)

He has held the

Euro(1) (from val)
IC(1) (from jericho)
Hardcore(1) (from rvd for about 30 seconds thanks to steve austin)
World (2) (the rock, steve austin)

King of the Ring: (1)

He has Main Evented 12 PPV's
(13 if you count fully loaded 2000's Triple main event[vs undertaker])
(14 if you count vengence 2001's undisputed title tournement[vs steve austin])


Not bad for someone who has been in the "sport" for 2 and a half years.

All he needs is a tag title, and he will have held all the titles he can possibly hold.(He cant win the CW title.)

Mick Foley has held all three tag titles as well. And the Road Warriors are the only tag team ever to hold the AWA, WWF and NWA Tag Titles.

He absolutely can. If he dropped only a little bit of weight, and the weight limit was raised to 230 or so, he could easily be billed at that weight (even if 10 pounds or so heavier).

If the WWE wanted Angle in that belt, then BY GOD they'd find a way to put him in that belt.

If we've had men as Women's champions, we can have Kurt Angle, the Cruiserweight. Hell, they wouldn't surprise me if they came up with a way to make Kane a cruiserweight.

There could be a little boat that can be gimmicked. If the wrestler can sit in the boat and not sink, he or she is a cruiserweight!

You know Cactus would be up for it!

The GWF did a gimmick like that with... Eddie Gilbert, I think? Anyway, his partner brought in a scale that would only measure a weight of 2 pounds under the limit, and switched it with the doctor's scale. That's about the LEAST contrived way of doing it. Of course, an Angle-Credgely chicken suit style skit is the best way to go about this, and would make for good TV to boot. To boot, I say!

Actually, this is all horrible. Any change in rules surrounding a title only devalues it. As funny as it would be for the Big Chow to wear a little guy's title, the belt would reach Hardcore title levels of credibility. The WCW Hardcore title.

How do you like that?! Big Chow! Hiyo!

I'm shocked Angle hasn't held the tag titles yet. If they don't really know what to do with him, he'd be a perfect guy to tag with someone on par with Jericho or Benoit. He seems like a much more obvious choice, but I wonder why he's always just been a singles guy. Maybe with Brock around, there'll be a team waiting to happen.

Riki,

I can see how the Triple Crown and Grand Slam winners could be named off the top of my head, but you're not about to tell me you came up with the dates off the top of your head, are you?

If so, then forgive me but you're worse than I am. LOL!

World Class Championship Wrestling. What eventually merged with the remnants of CWA and became USWA. He was the champ around 1988 or so...
