United States Championship - Jim Duggan

September 18, 1994 - December 27, 1994

Once his long-time friend Hollywood Hogan jumped from WWE to WCW, Jim Duggan was not too far behind. The move proved to be a wise one for Duggan, as he quickly captured the United States Championship. On Sept. 18, 1994, Steve Austin was awarded the U.S. Championship by WCW commissioner Nick Bockwinkle. Austin, however, had to defend the championship that night. His opponent was Duggan. "Hacksaw" picked up the win 27 seconds into the contest.
