United States Championship - Scott Steiner

April 16, 2000 - July 09, 2000

On April 10, 2000, WCW heads Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo stripped every champion in WCW of their titles. A tournament for the United States Championship was then held. In the finals, Scott Steiner defeated former U.S. Champion Sting. Steiner held the title for close to three months before Commissioner Ernest "The Cat" Miller stripped him of the U.S. Championship for using the Steiner Recliner (which had been banned) on Mike Awesome.
