This is the fictional history of the ECW Title as it relates to the holodeck program of Worf, Wesley, Will Riker, and Tasha Yar. Some reigns are not counted due to the belt being hotshotted the same night. This title history only includes the history of the original ECW and not WWECW (the ECW brand that used to air on sci fi every Tues night) tho it does include the days of when the company was known as Eastern Championship Wrestling from 92-94. Unless otherwise specified all title matches were contested under ECW Rules (no DQ). Triple Threat matches are elimination style. Sandman holds the record for most reigns with six. Bubba Ray (aka Bully Ray) holds the record for longest individual reign while Shane Douglas has the record for most cumulative days as champ.
