WWE World Heavyweight Championship - Hulk Hogan

March 24, 1991 - November 27, 1991

Hulk Hogan met Sgt. Slaughter for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania VII, but the match was for more than just the title. The match was for national pride. Hogan was out to defend his country against the American turncoat Slaughter. Hogan also had to contend with the devious General Adnan, who kept trying to distract the challenger, on the outside of the ring. Slaughter wore down Hogan with a Camel Clutch, but Hogan powered out of it, ripped up the Iraqi flag and hit the big boot and Leg Drop for the championship. Hogan became the first three-time WWE Champion.
