WWE's annual SummerSlam pay-per-view has been home to some of the most memorable title changes in company history.

Who will ever forget The Ultimate Warrior ending Honky Tonk Man's historic Intercontinental Championship reign in less than a minute at the 1988 show, or Bret Hart beginning his Hall of Fame singles career with a victory over Mr. Perfect for the same title?

There was British Bulldog's triumphant victory over Hart in front of 80,000 fans inside Wembley Stadium for the intercontinental title and Brock Lesnar's defeat of The Rock for the WWE Championship 10 years later in 2002.

For every one of the historic, emotionally charged title changes, however, several left fans scratching their heads and asking, "What just happened?"

On August 17, WWE will present the 2014 edition of SummerSlam. With John Cena booked to defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Divas champion AJ defending her title and intercontinental champion The Miz taking on Dolph Ziggler, there are plenty of opportunities for switches that fall on either side of the aisle.

In preparation for the upcoming spectacular, and in hopes that none of the potential title changes that occur at the show make it onto a revised edition of this list one day, here are seven of the worst title changes in SummerSlam history.
