The WWE Grand Slam




According to a Wikipedia entry:

"In the World Wrestling Federation (now known as "World Wrestling Entertainment") the term "Grand Slam Champion" was originally used by Shawn Michaels to describe himself upon winning the WWF Championship, the WWF Intercontinental Championship, the WWF European Championship and the WWF World Tag Team Championship. As of 2006, only six wrestlers have held all four of those titles. As the European Championship was discontinued on July 22, 2002, the number of future potential Grand Slam Champions is limited to wrestlers who have already held the European Championship".

The six wrestlers to have accomplished this feat:

Shawn Michaels
Triple H
Chris Jericho
Kurt Angle
Eddie Guerrero
Rob Van Dam

Since the European championship is no longer in the WWE, the only wrestlers left who can still achieve the grand slam:

Val Venis, William Regal, Jeff Hardy, Test, Jeff Jarrett, and Christian Cage require to win either the WWE Championship or the World Heavyweight Championship to complete the Grand Slam.

I think of all the ones left, Jeff Hardy has the best shot, at least I hope so. Not sure if he can beat John Cena but it would be a good match. If you have been to my page then you know that I have been a HUGE DX fan forever!! Thanks for letting me comment and I think this is a cool page. Hugs and kisses, Toni

Hey thanks for the comment. I'd agree with you but not sure Hardy can win that elusive WWE Heavyweight title..would be interesting for sure! Good luck to DX, they might just be tag team champs next RAW!

I am pretty sure that JBL won the European Championship. All he needs to win is the Intercontinental championship to be a Grand Slam champion.
