This is the fifth edition of my "best of" series.
Growing up during the Attitude Era, this was hands down my favorite championship. It was because of the people that necessarily held it, it was because of the unpredictably and humor that came along with the title and its matches.
At first, the title was awarded to Mankind but he quickly dropped it due to him impending push towards the end of 1998.
Once Crash Holly had won the title, however, did it start to become "must-see TV." Crash introduced the "24/7 Rule," which meant the title would be defended anytime and any place, and it sure was!
During it's four-year existence, the Hardcore Championship was held 229.times by 52 different wrestlers, with Raven having the most reigns (26).
