Here’s an interesting trivia fact that you can use to impress your friends: the WWE World Heavyweight Title (and the unified World titles that make it up) has been vacated more times than it has been won by John Cena, who is the the active leader with 15 World title reigns (Ric Flair is the clubhouse leader with 16 recognized reigns, with Cena expected to pass him any day now). Even over the belt’s long history, that’s an astonishing number of breaks in the lineage. In fact, if you count the total number of days that the WWE’s World titles have been vacant, it would actually exceed the total title length of the title reigns of many former Champions. Sometimes, it’s been due to major injuries forcing their hand, but several times, WWE actually scripted the vacancy as part of their story lines. We’ll leave it up to you to decide if that was always a good plan or not, but here’s a list of the most interesting situations where WWE found themselves, for one reason or another, without a World Champion.
11. Two Reigns For The Price Of One (2004)
So, Triple H was deep in the middle of his reign of terror over Raw, which lasted roughly two years and irritated a whole lot of wrestling fans. At this point, we were finishing up the entire “Randy Orton fails horribly as a face” portion of the story, but WWE was still keeping up appearances that he was a credible challenger for Triple H’s World title, while subtly building Batista to take his spot by being stronger, cooler, and smarter than his Evolution team-mates. At any rate, Orton’s team had defeated Triple H’s team at Survivor Series, with the stipulation that each member of the winning team got to run Raw for a week as GM. Orton’s plan for his week in charge was, of course, to book himself in a title match, and if Triple H refused to face him, he would be forced to face the entire Raw roster in a battle royal for the title instead. Somehow, that got modified in the days leading up to the show, and in the end, Triple H refused to face Orton and was instead put into a World title match against the winner of a battle royal, or in this case, winners, as Edge and Chris Benoit eliminated each other at the end and turned the title match into a Triple Threat. And that match also had an inconclusive finish, as Edge tapped out to the Crossface while Benoit’s shoulders were counted down. The title was declared vacant, and was put up for grabs at the New Year’s Revolution Pay Per View inside the Elimination Chamber, where after a hard-fought match Triple H won his title back and everything went back to how it was before, except now Triple H had an additional reign to his name. Why, yes, he was pretty obviously trying to beat Ric Flair’s record at that point, how did you know?http://wwehdwallpaperfree.blogspot.com.tr/2014/11/triple-h-hd-free-wallpapers.html Source: wwehdwallpaperfree.blogspot.com
