What is this page?

On March 26, 2001, World Championship Wrestling was purchased by the World Wrestling Federation. Vince McMahon bragged about owning his competition, WCW, but Shane McMahon stepped in and revealed to the world that he had bought WCW right out from under his father's nose. Vince was planning on running WCW into the ground, but with Shane McMahon behind the wheel, WCW has a bright future ahead of them. On this page, you will find the title histories and championship pictures for the new, Shane McMahon ran WCW. -- And you gotta like replica WWF Title History style.   ;)

On November 18, 2001, WCW/ECW (The Alliance) Tag-Team title was unified with the WWF Tag-Team title by then current WCW Tag Champions - The Dudley Boyz. Also, the WCW US title was merged with the WWF Intercontinental title, as then current US Champion Edge won and unified the belt. As of that day the WCW Tag titles and US titles both basically disappeared. They have not resumed since. Also, the WCW Cruiserweight title held by Tajiri has also disappeared and does not look like it will return again.

On November 19, 2001, Vince McMahon seized control of the WCW World Heavyheight title due to his Survivor Series winner take all war the day before. He then renamed the belt The World Championship.

On December 9, 2001, Chris Jericho, the current WORLD Champion defeats the WWF Heavyweight Champion Steve Austin, to unify the belts and become the undisputed World Champion. This is basically the end of the legacy of WCW and the last time the largest Gold belt in sports-entertainment will ever air on TV.

April 4, 2002. Kidman wins the Cruiserweight title after the merge, the wwf win and the raw/smackdown split. The Light-Heavyweight belt is disbanded and the cruiser title is the #1 belt. So, Kidman is the WWF Cruiserweight champ, but the final WCW champ was Tajiri. The WWF Cruiserweight lineage will still kept up to date here.
