WWE.com recently posted a new article entitled “The Strange Cases of 7 Missing Titles.” In the article, they discuss the seven missing titles that we haven’t seen in a while. Of course, the awesome CruiserWeight Title was listed with two photos of Rey Mysterio that I uploaded to the gallery. The article said:
During WCW’s heyday, there were no competitors in sports-entertainment more exciting than the Cruiserweights. Luchadores such as Juventud Guerrera, Rey Mysterio and Psicosis joined Japanese wrestlers like Jushin “Thunder” Liger and future World Champions, namely Chris Jericho, in the hunt for the prestigious Cruiserweight Championship. (WATCH) When WWE acquired WCW in 2001, the championship made its way to WWE, eventually replacing the WWE Light Heavyweight Championship. The title would be exclusive to SmackDown until 2007.
At The Great American Bash that year, Hornswoggle defeated six-time Cruiserweight Champion Chavo Guerrero for the title. But a few months later, SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero stripped ‘Swoggle of the title out of concern for his safety.
The historic and prestigious Cruiserweight Championship has not been seen since. Considering former WWE Champions Chris Jericho, Eddie Guerrero, Rey Mysterio and legends such as Dean Malenko and Lance Storm all held the title, it’s one of WWE’s greatest unsolved championship mysteries. Does Vickie Guerrero still have it? Did it suffer the same mysterious fate as the WCW Television Title?
