  • does not recognize Dean Malenko's win of title at Slamboree '98 since he did not win title shot as self (per WCW history he was stripped and belt was returned to Jericho so I am counting it as if Jericho never lost the belt)
  • for the purpose of this list the WCW Cruiserweight Title ceased to exist 3/26/01 making Shane Helms' first reign only 8 days
  • on 5/15/2000 Crowbar and Daffney became co-champions then on 5/22/2000 Daffney became the solo champion this history accounts for her holding that whole reign solo
