There were quite a few PPV matches that featured a champion but for some reason the match was non-title. Examples include:
- Roddy Piper VS Greg Valentine(c) Dog Collar Match at Starrcade 1983: Not for the US Championship.
- Ricky Steamboat VS Rick Rude(c) 30 Minute Iron Man Match at Beach Blast 1992: Not for the US Championship.
- Roddy Piper VS Hollywood Hogan(c) Steel Cage Match at Halloween Havoc 1997: Not for the World Heavyweight Championship.
- Hart Foundation VS Brain Busters(c): Not for the Tag Team Championship.
