WCW world heavyweight champions, in order (only first reign noted)
WCW as WCW only existed from 1991 to 2001, about 10 years and two months. 19 men held the top prize in the company. Two of them were David Arquette and Vince Russo.
Of all 17 actual wrestlers represented here, a grand total of one has never worked a day for Vince McMahon, and that is Sting. Seven of these men (Flair, Hogan, Savage, Giant/Big Show, Nash, Hart, and Sid) also held the WWWF/WWF/WWE championship. Three others (Benoit, Goldberg, and Booker T) held WWE’s “world heavyweight championship.”
