There are 21 Triple Crown Champions in the history of the WWE. And there are 10 people who are just one or two title short of becoming the newest member of the club.

A club that includes such greats as The Rock, Stone Cold, Bret Hart, Eddie Guerrero, Ric Flair, as well as superstars of the present such as Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Randy Orton and many more.

I'll give you #'s 10 to 5 and give reasons for my top 4. Here we go...

#10-William Regal


#8-Shelton Benjamin

#7-John Morrison

#6-Kofi Kingston

#5-Big Show

#4-Christian: Christian only needs a World Heavyweight or WWE title reign to gain access into this club, but he is on ECW right now. He is the current ECW Champion and he is doing lots of matches with Tommy Dreamer. I think the only way he would win a World Title would be if he won the Money in the Bank Ladder Match and cashed it in at the right time. Otherwise, this club is full for Christian.

#3-Batista: Batista needs an IC Championship run to become a Triple Crown Champion, but there are two problems. One is he is on Raw and the IC Champ, Rey Mysterio, is currently on Smackdown. The second problem is, currently, Batista is on the shelf. Come to think of it, he has been on the shelf for a while now, with the injury before and this injury now. So when he gets better, the IC title better come to Raw or Batista better go to Smackdown. Otherwise, Batista is out of luck.

#2-The Undertaker-: I put Undertaker at #2 because all 'Taker needs is an IC Championship run like Batista and my #1 pick. Just like Batista, there is a problem. Undertaker is currently listed as inactive. Nobody knows when he'll come back, but when he does, maybe he'll get in the right situation and get a title shot. Otherwise, Undertaker can't get past the security guard at this club.

#1-John Cena: I picked John Cena because he has no problems and is at the prime of his career. Since Big Show can compete on Smackdown too, maybe he can win the IC Title, which is what John Cena needs to join the club, then Cena can beat the Big Show or, to make it simpler for Cena, he can just go over and beat Rey for the title. He'll have to do something, otherwise, Cena doesn't get to join the club and doesn't get a jacket. To join the club...Like the expression "Join the club. We've got jackets"...Oh well.
