This is the second part of my series on The State of African-American Champions.
The first part was on the history and the different numbers of champions that are African-American.
The second part of my series will focus on who were the greatest champions and it's not going by the one title one but the different titles one.
It will be ranked on titles, how many one different titles, and there place in history of winning those titles.
You may be wondering why I have Junkyard Dog on here well I respect all that he did for the business and was once of the first to get a push in wrestling and even though he never one any major titles he was one of the best if not the best that came out of Mid-South.
Honorable Mention: Jazz, Bobby Lashely, Kofi Kingston, MVP, and R-Truth
The first African-American Women to win the Women's Championship on September 21st, 1998 and it was an historic night for her being the first African women to win a presige's title like that she lost the title November 15th, 1998 about a little over a two month reign.
She would win the title again against Hervina on Feburary 3rd, 2000 but would lose it to Stephaine McMahon on March 30th, 2000 only about a month and a half regin as champion.
She was the first and only African-American women to win a mens title as she won the Cruiserweight Championship against Chavo Guerrero on May 6th, 2004 but lost it ten days later against Chavo.
She has held two different titles at a total of three different times.
She is someone that will be remebered for doing some of the first and it will be left in history forever and that's why she breaks the top ten.
Ahmed only won one title but it was a big one as he was the first African-American to win the Intercontinental Championship as he beat Goldust on June 23rd, 1996 his regin was nearly two months as he lost it on August 12th, 1996.
D-Lo Brown was the first African-American to hold two titles at one time as he beat Jeff Jarrett on July 26, 1999 in a Title vs. Title match as he also won the European Championship as he held both titles but he would lose both on August 22nd, 1999.
He has been a good champion at a struggling time for the IC and European Championship.
He held two different titles five different times but two titles at one time.
He made eight on my list because he was very good and should have one more than one IC title.
Bobo Brazil if you don't know who he is you must not know wrestling the first African-American to the United States Championship and the first to win a singles title as a African-American.
Brazil was one of the best at his time in the wrestling business.
He held the one and only United States Championship I think he earned his way into the top ten.
The Golden Standard has not been short of that; he has been golden. He has held both the IC and US Championship and is the only African-American to do so.
He has held the WWE Tag Team Championships twice.
He has held three different Championships six different times.
He if the push will ever come should be in the World or WWE Championship picture hopefully in the near future because he is the best athlete in the WWE.
Thw two men that made history on November 15th, 1983 as the beat The Somoans in a match that will never be forgotten as the first African-Americans to win any gold in wrestling as history was made but would lose the titles on April 17th, 1984.
The both held that one major title but it will never be forgotten for the history they made in the in wrestling.
The first African-American World Champion is the one and only Ron Simmons who made wrestling history August 2nd, 1992 as there was a change in the guard as he beat Vadar for the Championship even though he lost the Championship to Vadar on December 30th, 1992.
He has also won Tag Team Championship gold twice as he held three different Chamionships and is one of the best and when he looks back at the career that he had years from now all he can say is......................................
The man that held ever major Tag Team Championships is a very deserving 3rd place on this list as he has held WWE, World, ECW, WCW, TNA, ECW, and IWGP Tag Team Championships.
His is one of they of not they best Tag Team compiteter in wrestling history.
He has held twenty-three Tag Team Championships and is a record that will never be broken by anyone much less a African-American.
One of the best at what he does and will never be another D-Von Dudley.
The People's Champion, The Brahma Bull, The Corporate Champion,The Great One, The Most Electrifying Man In Sports Entertainment, or Rocky he is still one of the most decorated Champions in wrestling history as he was the first to win a WWE Championship and did it plenty of times.
You may onder hey is not number one well to me it's not because he is half but it has a little to do with it but there is someone more decorated African-American Champion and you will see who is number one.
The Rock has held four different titles sixteen different times.
He was the Sixth Triple Crown Champion.
The Rock is one of the best that was in the business and he left his mark in wreslting history but he is second on the list to the next man that is number one.
The Five Time WCW Champion, World Heavyweight Champion, United States Champion, Tag Team Champion, and so many more titles.
Booker T is the greatest African-American Champion in wrestling history; he is the most decorated Champion in wrestling history he has held twelve different titles thirty-four different times.
He is a King of the Ring in 2006, Sixteen Triple Crown Champion, and Eight Grand Slam Champion.
Booker T is one of the greatest and is a sure Hall of Famer as soon as he ill retire.
Booker T is number one on my list and will always be.
Part three of this series will be African-American Wrestlers who will be the next in line to become Champion I will send you the link as soon as it comes up thanks for reading.
