In WWE, there are six major titles. Not many know that the company has had a total of at least 19 different titles, 13 of which have been abandoned for one reason or another. Each slide will feature the champion, who they defeated, where and when they won it, the length of their title reign, any special circumstances that happened during their reign and a bit of commentary. Belts with a lengthy history will get their own articles and may be broken up into two depending on the length. When Crash Holly won the title for the first time February he said that he would defend the title 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When the roster was split into two brands, the Hardcore Championship ended up on Monday Night Raw, which is where it stayed until it was abandoned.

The title was only contestable in matches under hardcore regulations, and could be won only by individual wrestlers. McMahon awarded Mankind the title. The title was reactivated on two occasions afterwards, although they are not considered official reigns by WWE according to their official title history. On the June 23, episode of Raw , Mick Foley who was the first champion as "Mankind" was awarded the Hardcore Championship belt by the Raw brand authority figure Stone Cold Steve Austin for his contributions in hardcore wrestling. Overall, there were reigns shared among 52 wrestlers, all of whom won in Canada, England, Germany, Scotland, and the United States.
The WWE Hardcore Championship was a hardcore wrestling championship in WWE formerly the World Wrestling Federation and was contested under "hardcore" rules no disqualifications, no countouts, and pinfalls count anywhere. After Mankind lost the title to The Big Boss Man, he never attempted to recapture it, mainly because of the main event push he received shortly afterward. At the time of conception, the idea was for the belt to be used in comedy segments to play on Mankind's reputation as a hardcore wrestler.
