ECW Trivia Question
What were the first two title changes (of any championship) between wrestlers in the two eras of “ECW” (both Eastern and Extreme)?
For the Eastern era, the first title change was on April 26, 1992 when Johnny Hot Body defeated Jimmy Snuka for the Eastern Heavyweight title (Snuka had become the first ECW heavyweight champion the night before in a battle royal).
For the Extreme era, Eastern Championship Wrestling ceased to go by that name after Shane Douglas won the NWA world heavyweight championship tournament on August 27, 1994. Extreme Championship Wrestling starts the next day (August 28, 1994). The first title change of any belt was on November 4, 1994 when 2 Cold Scorpio defeated Jason Knight for the ECW Television Championship in Hamburg, PA (aired on ECW television roughly two weeks later). Dean Malenko then defeated 2 Cold Scorpio that same night for the title. The next night at the ECW Arena (November 5, 1994) The Public Enemy defeated Cactus Jack and Mikey Whipwreck for the ECW World Tag Team Championship. This last match is mentioned due to many believing that the tag team title change was the first in “Extreme” history, but the night before had the two title changes for Television Championship.
