United States Championship - Dustin Rhodes

January 11, 1993 - May 01, 1993

"The Natural" Dustin Rhodes was scheduled to face Ricky Steamboat in January 1993 to decide which wrestler would be considered the No. 1 Contender to Rick Rude's United States Championship. However, when Rick Rude failed to defend the championship within the allotted time period, WCW stripped the champ of the title. The Rhodes-Steamboat match then became a championship match to fill the vacancy. Rhodes won and held the title until May 1993 when he was stripped of the championship after a controversial double pin occurred during a match between he and Rick Rude.
