Daniel Bryan and other 24-hour title reigns

Mankind — WWE Championship — Aug. 22 to 23, 1999

Mankind won his third and final WWE Championship in a grueling Triple Threat Match against “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Triple H at SummerSlam 1999. With Jesse Ventura acting as special guest referee and Chyna and Shane McMahon getting involved, the fast-paced, physical match is perhaps best remembered as one of the highlights of Hall of Famer Mick Foley’s incredible in-ring career.

Since Mrs. Foley’s Baby Boy is a Superstar who only held the WWE Championship for a combined 47 days throughout his lengthy career, after all, it is not a great surprise that the next night on Raw, Triple H defeated The Hardcore Legend. Delivering two devastating Pedigrees — the second of which was gruesomely onto a bed of thumbtacks — The Game ended Mankind’s time with the WWE Title after just one day.
