20 Years Ago Today, The WWE Introduced The Hardcore Championship

On this day, November 2, in 1998, the WWE introduced a new championship.

Given to Mankind as a gift from Vince McMahon, this new Hardcore Championship showcased the no-holds-barred style of Mick Foley, and those who won it after.

When captured by Crash Holly, the Houdini of Hardcore introduced the 24/7 rule, with the champion having to defend the title at all times, against all opponents. 

With a combined 172 days across 6 reigns, Steve Blackman spent the most time as Hardcore champion, with Shawn Stasiak seen as the least successful, holding the title 15 times, but never lasting past a single day as champion.

Four women have been Hardcore Champion, and after 240 title reigns across 52 Superstars, the title was retired in August 2002 on Monday Night RAW.
