The 10 Titles of Ultimo Dragon
 


British Commonwealth Junior Heavyweight
IWGP Junior Heavyweight
UWA World Junior Heavyweight
WAR International Junior Heavyweight
WWA World Junior Light Heavyweight
WWF Light Heavyweight
NWA World Junior Heavyweight
NWA World Welterweight
NWA World Middleweight
WCW World Cruiserweight

This has got to be the most singles titles on one guy in wrestling history. I'm not 100% certain on that though. Lou Thesz unified 4 or 5, and Dano O'Mahoney did similar in the 1930s, but I can't find any info on any wrestler holding as many or more than Ultimo Dragon.

Not sure if this counts, but independent tag team Da Hit Squad (Monsta Mack and Dan Maff) once held 6 separate tag team titles.

I remember seeing that as a kid, I was in awe of all those titles. I couldn't believe that shit. I became an Ultimo Dragon fan later on...he was probably my 3rd fav cruiserweight after Rey-Rey & The Juice.

Does anyone know how long he held on to those 10 titles?

Shame that a guy with that many title's at once isn't treated as a bigger deal in the business, at least here in the states.

He held the 10 titles for just a few days. The WCW Cruiserweight was the last of the 10 that he won, and it was 12-29-1996 from Dean Malenko at Starrcade.

He lost the 8 titles of the J Crown (won 10-11-1996) on 1-4-1997 to Jushin Liger, and then lost the WCW Cruiserweight back to Dean Malenko on 1-27-1997.

The only title he didn't lose was the NWA World Middleweight which he held until 1998 when he was forced to vacate due to the WCW surgeon that screwed up the nerves in his arm.

So six days was the length of the 10 title unification.

10 championships at 1 time...man what a beast.
I think he was the only cruiserweight (other than jericho & malenko) with a submission finisher too, which is also very cool.

They should have played on this fact during his WWE run. I was quite excited when I heard he was coming to WWE but they really didn't put any effort into him at all. As Raw and Smackdown were still separate brands at the time, perhaps they should have had him capturing the United States Championship and the Cruiserwight Championship on Smackdown and then had him win the Intercontinental Championship on Raw. It wouldn't have been as impressive as holding ten at once but it would have been quite cool (and would have encouraged people who didn't know him very well to investigate his history). I'm quite stoned at the moment so, while this seems like a great idea at the moment, I may soon doubt myself.

As much as a great of an idea it could seem to Dragon marks, and I do like him, he just doesn't seem like the WWE type guy to get that sort of push and hold all of the mid card WWE titles. It would make all the other guys in that division look like utter crap compared to him, guys like Benjamin, Rey, Orton, Christian, Jericho, Benoit, Eddie, Edge, Rhyno, Cena, Tajiri and a couple of others I am forgetting that were inthe mid card division on either brand at the time.

I do agree he could have brought some credability to the CW division and maybe a long lengthy title run with the CW title and make it worth something, however, for him to hold that plus IC and US is a bit much, the whole idea of the brand extension was to push new younger talent and give new guys more air time after they aquired many guys from WCW going out of business and the like, not for it all to go to one person.

That's just how I feel.
