Top 15 Stars You Forgot Were Champions in WWE

Winning a championship in the WWE should be the highlight of any wrestlers's career, so what does it say about the person when their title reign is completely forgotten? Whether it's a case of a superstar who simply didn't deserve the honor of being champion in the first place or a wrestler being completely overshadowed by what else they had accomplished, these 15 guys wish people could focus more on their days near the top of the WWE. Assuming we all know the World Champions that have come and gone we're going to focus on the lower level titles from Intercontinental to Tag Team and everything in between.

The list of champions that have come and gone throughout the WWE is seemingly endless, so it should be no surprise that there are people on this list that you have completely forgotten about but they only make up a part of this list. While it is interesting to search your memory banks for names that you didn't remember ever existed, it's even better when there was a legend that held gold in the Fed but had a title reign that was so unremarkable that most fans can't be bothered to remember it.

When you first think of The Rock, do you imagine him doing his signature turnbuckle pose while throwing the belt over his shoulder? Can you even picture old school HHH coming to the ring without the big gold belt around his waist? How about when you hear "Real American" and see Hulk Hogan coming down to the ring, does he have the Winged Eagle strapped around his abdomen? Everyone that makes up this list is the complete opposite of those guys in that you may remember the name, but no one remembers that they had championships.

1 1. Kerry Von Erich

As a member of one of the most legendary families in all of wrestling history, it seemed as if Kerry's future was set in stone from an early age. The Von Erich's absolutely ruled the state of Texas from 1966 when patriarch Fritz Von Erich first opened WCCW to the company's closing in 1990. Having a shadow the size of Texas following you throughout your career would be impossible for anyone to shake, with Kerry being no exception. His family's reputation followed him to the WWE where Kerry was re-dubbed "The Texas Tornado" even managing to defeat Mr. Perfect for the Intercontinental Title roughly a month after his debut. Unfortunately, due to the tragedies that haunt the Von Erich's to this day, along with the personal demons Kerry was facing and the fact he was from wrestling's first family, his run as IC Champ is the last thing on people's minds when they hear the Von Erich name.
