In 25 defenses, the WWE Championship has only changed hands six times at SummerSlam. Bret Hart won the Title by defeating The Undertaker in 1997 with Shawn Michaels as Special Referee, two years before Jesse Ventura presided over Mankind's third WWE Title victory. Brock Lesnar conquered The Rock in 2002 to win the Championship in his rookie year, a feat Alberto Del Rio also accomplished against CM Punk by using Money in the Bank in 2011. Daniel Bryan vanquished John Cena for his first WWE Title in 2013, only to be betrayed by Special Referee HHH, whom counted three for Randy Orton's own cash-in moments later.

On this day: Stone Cold opts to face Owen Hart & British Bulldog alone for the Tag Team Title that Austin’s partner Shawn Michaels vacated his half of a month prior, only to be met with Mick Foley’s latest alter ego Dude Love, whom pins Bulldog after a Stunner by Austin to give the unlikely duo the WWF Tag Team Championship. (7/14/97)

On this day: DX’s war with the Nation of Domination spills into the New Age Outlaws’ Title defense against Kane & Mankind, which ends with Nation member D’Lo Brown landing a Frog Spalsh onto Road Dogg that allows Kane to nail the Tombstone Piledriver, winning he & Mankind their first WWF Tag Team Title.

On this day: 20 days after losing the WWF Title to Mankind, The Rock stops at nothing to regain it in an I Quit match, leveling a handcuffed Foley with 11 chairshots to the head before an audio recording of Mankind submitting earlier in the night is mysteriously played, giving Rock the win and his second WWF Championship. (1/24/99)

No Way Out 2000: Triple H defeats Cactus Jack after a grueling Hell in a Cell match that saw the Hardcore Legend fall through the top of the Cell and almost through the ring before “The Game” put him away with a Pedigree to retain his WWF Championship.

Royal Rumble Rewind - 2000: With a nasty gash on his calf and blood pouring form his skull, Triple H survives Cactus Jack’s hardcore onslaught to deliver a Pedigree into a pile of thumbtacks, and in the process, retaining his WWF Championship in Madison Square Garden.
