Footnotes:
[1]: No title tournament that I’m aware of, just two top contenders facing off for the title. Hotbody legitimately injured his ankle and on September 12, 1992, he was forced by ECW to relinquish the title.
[2]: Osbourne and Sandman were the final two men who competed in a battle royal and wrestled later in the night to crown a new champion. In February 1993, Osbourne was stripped of the title for unknown reasons.
[3]: This was a tournament final.
[4]: The TV title was defended in a tag match which included the TV champ Terry Funk & King Kong Bundy against Sabu & Road Warrior Hawk. Sabu pinned Funk and because of the match stipulations, Sabu became the new TV champion.
[5]: This was a four-way dance which also included Pitbull #2 and Too Cold Scorpio.
[6]: On March 4, 2000, Rob Van Dam was injured and forced to vacate the title.
[7]: This was a tournament final.
[8]: This was a three-way match which also included Little Guido.
[9]: On April 11, 2001, ECW shut down and the WWF buys their assets, which leaves Rhino as the final REAL ECW World Television Champion.
