United States Championship - Curt Hennig

September 15, 1997 - December 28, 1997

Competing as Mr. Perfect, Curt Hennig was considered one of the greatest Intercontinental Champions of all time. Then injury appeared to cut his amazing career short. Luckily for Hennig, however, doctors gave him a second chance at an in-ring career. It was in WCW that he shined in his second chance. Hennig shined brightest in September 1997 when he defeated Steve McMichael for the United States Championship on Monday Nitro.
