Top 10 WWE Championship Changes

The most prestigious title in sports entertainment history, I love title changes and matches. Either the hype, the competitors, or even the event, I ADORED changes. I am now here to tell you my favorite WWE championship changes in HISTORY, YES, 50 YEARS, 10 OF MY FAVORITES, HERE.

The Top Ten

1 Shawn Michaels - WrestleMania XII

This was the status that elevated Shawn as, in my opinion, the greatest of all time. Shawn is my favorite legend in the WWE. - Super64

2 CM Punk - Money in the Bank 2011

As the second annual Money in the Bank pay-per-view event, it's without a doubt the best one, mostly because of this title change. This proved that Punk truly is the best in the world. Yes, this is my favorite change in the modern era. - Super64

3 Daniel Bryan - SummerSlam 2013

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, even a reign that is the shortest one of a superstar that's alive can prove more than the length. Daniel bested probably the best the company has to offer for the title that has been around for 50 years. That, my friend, deserves a big bold YES... - Super64

4 Ultimate Warrior - WrestleMania VI

The power of the Warrior prevailed. A grueling match between the Ultimate Challenge and the Ultimate Star for the Ultimate Prizes. The fact that the Warrior actually moved out of the way of the Leg Drop impressed me, due to the fact that practically EVERYONE wasn't smart enough to think of it first. - Super64

5 Mankind - Raw 1998

EVERYONE jumped out of their seats for this, but nobody knew that THIS was going to lead to the downfall of WCW. After defying the odds, avoiding the authority's attempts, and a little help from Stone Cold, Mick realized his dream. I know that Mr. And Mrs. Foley were proud. - Super64

6 Eddie Guerrero - No Way Out 2004

Latino Heat beat the Next Best Thing for the most prestigious title in sports entertainment history. I just hope Eddie will remember this as the best thing in WWE history.R.I.P. eddie Guerrero - Super64

7 Steve Austin - WrestleMania XIV

After a little help from Mike Tyson, Stone Cold won his first WWE Title. Shawn Michaels was bested and betrayed and fell, hard, to a knockout punch, he tasted the dust of the future of the company. - Super64

8 John Cena - WrestleMania 21

John Cena elevated his status as one of the best on this very night. He ended the longest reign in SmackDown history, JBL deserved to lose that night, after having that championship he didn't really need. - Super64

9 Randy Savage - WrestleMania IV

Again, after a little help from Hulk Hogan, The Macho Man won his first WWE Title. You know, this is getting really repetitive, Someone helping another man to win his first WWE Title reign, Mankind & Stone Cold already done, but this was the start.R.I.P. "Macho Man" Randy Savage - Super64

10 Ric Flair - Royal Rumble 1992

The Royal Rumble determined the WWE Title this time around. AGAIN, after a little help from Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair won his first WWE Title in this. - Super64

The Contenders

11 Batista - WrestleMania 21
12 AJ Lee - Raw June 21
