5 Most Unusual Title Vacancies In Pro Wrestling History
There's more than one way to lose a belt...
4. Shawn Michaels' Parade-O-Vacancies
Some of these involve "injuries" in perhaps the academic sense, but it's worth examining just how many times Shawn Michaels has lost a title without losing a match. Between 1993 and 1997, six of Michaels' title reigns ended outside of a standard wrestling bout.
There's the "lost smile" WWF title vacancy, one IC title gone via a drug test failure, another forfeited after the "Syracuse" incident, a Tag Title dropped because he and Diesel split, another Tag run ended when he "quit" WWF legitimately, and a European title loss where he just laid down for Triple H. That's some resume.
