20 first championship victories in WWE

Edge (July 24, 1999)

The Rated-R Superstar’s first championship in WWE did not come without controversy. In front of friends and family inside Toronto’s SkyDome (now called the Rogers Centre), Edge defeated Jeff Jarrett for the Intercontinental Championship … or so he thought. There was some confusion among officials about whether the impromptu bout was in fact a title match, and the prestigious prize was taken away from Edge.

However, the decision was made at ringside that it was indeed a title match and The Ultimate Opportunist was rightfully awarded the title. "It was one of the first moments where I got goose bumps inside of the ring," Edge said regarding the first title in his WWE Hall of Fame career.
