Footnotes:
[1]: This title reign was an extension of Flair’s final NWA title reign. In July 1991, Flair left WCW for WWE and took the Big Gold Belt with him. This left WCW in a bind and they had to make a new title belt and crown a new champion.
[2]: Luger and Windham faced off in a cage match to determine a new WCW world champion.
[3]: In a pre-match clause, Hogan could lose the title on a DQ. When Jimmy Hart interfered and cost Hogan the title, Giant became the WCW world champion. Due to the controversial finish, Giant was stripped of the belt on the 11/6/1995 Nitro.
[4]: Randy Savage won a 60-man battle royal to win the vacant WCW world title.
[5]: This was a fatal four-way match which also included Sting and Hollywood Hogan.
[6]: This was a fatal four-way match which also included Goldberg and Kevin Nash.
[7]: The WCW world title was being decided in a tag match with WCW world champion Kevin Nash & Sting taking on Randy Savage & Sid Vicious. Savage earned the pinfall and won the title.
[8]: After Sting lost a non-sanctioned match with Goldberg at Halloween Havoc, he was stripped of the title on the 10/26/1999 Nitro after beating up referee Charles Robinson at the PPV.
[9]: This was a tournament final. Hart would be forced to vacate the title at Souled Out.
[10]: Once Benoit won the title, he decided to leave WCW for WWE.
[11]: As Commissioner of WCW, Kevin Nash wrestled Sid Vicious for the vacant title and lost. All the titles would become vacant anyway on the 4/10/2000 Nitro when Bischoff and Russo took over WCW and decided it was time to reboot the company.
[12]: This was a tournament final.
[13]: The WCW world title was being decided in a tag match with WCW world champion Diamond Dallas Page & David Arquette taking on Jeff Jarrett & Eric Bischoff. Arquette pinned Bischoff and won the title.
[14]: This was a Triple Cage match which also included the WCW world champion David Arquette.
[15]: Vince Russo stripped Flair of the belt and awarded it back to Jarrett.
[16]: Nash won a triple-threat match which also included Scott Steiner.
[17]: Kevin Nash awarded the belt back to Ric Flair.
[18]: After Russo wins the title, he decides he’s not a wrestler and vacates the title.
[19]: In a crazy tag match, Jarrett and Booker defeated Sting and Scott Steiner to wrestle in a one-on-one title match to crown a new champion.
[20]: Chris Jericho defeated The Rock to win the title and as WWE world champion, the WCW and WWE titles become unified for the first time ever.
