|In March 2001, WWE buys out WCW and the title is retired because the WWF already had a hardcore title at the time.
: This was a tournament final match to determine the first ever WCW Hardcore champion.
: All three members of 3 Count (Shannon Moore, Shane Helms and Evan Karagias) pinned Knobbs simultaneously to win the title.
: Once the Russo/Bischoff era started on 4/10/2000, all the titles were made vacant as they reset the company.
: Due to the Hardcore title being vacant, Terry Funk and Norman Smiley were chosen to compete and the winner would capture the title.
: This was a handicap match with Funk and Smiley taking on Shane Douglas. Terry Funk scored the pinfall and therefore regained the title.
: Bischoff awarded the WCW Hardcore title to both Johnny the Bull and Big Vito of the Mamalukes tag team and deemed them as co-champions.
: Vito pinned Johnny the Bull to become the undisputed WCW Hardcore champion.
: When Lance Storm won the title, he changed the name of the belt to the Saskatchewan Hardcore International title. Turn it into an acronym, and you’ll see the joke.
: Storm awarded the belt to fellow Canadian Carl Oulette to make him the new champion.
: Acting WCW Commissioner Mike Sanders vacated the title and started up a tournament.
: This was a tournament final. Sgt. AWOL actually won the match, but acting WCW Commissioner Mike Sanders overturned the decision and gave the belt to Reno.
: The belt became vacant once Meng left for the WWF to appear at the Royal Rumble. With Meng’s departure from the company, WCW basically abandoned the belt.
