If you were watching this when it was going down...WCW died after Rocky beat Austin at Survivor Series. The next night they changed it to "The World title" and Jericho won the whole charade at Vengeance 01 in San Diego...everyone thought that Cripple H was gonna return and knock out the last two guys who survived the first match and it would end in a smoz. But now history has been changed again and Jericho didn't win the WWF/World titles...he won the WWF/WCW title in December 2001, after WCW was killed off the month before.
Just in case you're confused...Blandy won the WWE title, which has all the WWF and WCW history in it, and the World title that was given to Cripple H in Sept 2002 from Eric Bischoff out of suitcase when Lesnar took the real belt to Smackdown shortly after Summerslam.
"Nobody is supposed to remember that though" LOL.
nikka, the WWE BEEN refering to Jericho's title wins by the WCW/WWE Championship for way longer than that. According to the "revised" WWE history, the WCW Championship was rebranded the World Heavyweight Championship the minute Triple H was awarded the title. This is not a new phenomenon breh... the WWE likes to pretend the Rock carrying the World Championship never happened, and the title he lost to Jericho at Unforgiven 2001 was the WCW title.
Idk it actually makes sense though.
Chris Jericho combined WWE and WCW's title around the Invasion era.
Orton unified the WWE and ''brand Extension'' era World title
if anything that'd be a better title to hold then the current name you'd think
but bytches gonna bytch about anything they can
I've never heard that mentioned until yesterday. They've been calling the titles Jericho won the World and WWF titles for over 12 years.
if it was a different title then they should have listed a different lineage..unless Harley Race came back and won the WHC in the past decade
