Cruiserweight Championship - Dean Malenko

May 17, 1998 - June 11, 1998

At Slamboree 1998, Dean Malenko outlasted 15 other men to win a Cruiserweight Battle Royal, entitling him to a shot at the Cruiserweight Championship (held by Chris Jericho) later in the evening.

In the Cruiserweight Championship match that same night, Malenko defeated Jericho for the championship. But there was one catch - Malenko won the battle royal while competing under a mask. After losing his title, Jericho complained that he never signed on to fight Malenko. As a result of a technicality, Malenko was forced to relinquish the title.
