Shane Douglas held a dozen championships between ECW, WCW and the WWF and is a five-time world champion: a four-time ECW World Heavyweight Champion and a one-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion. He is also a one-time WWF Intercontinental Champion, a two-time ECW World Television Champion, a one-time WCW United States Heavyweight Champion and a two-time WCW World Tag Team Champion.
He achieved the biggest success of his career in ECW, where he debuted in 1993 and captured the ECW Heavyweight Championship twice in his rookie year. He had his career-defining moment when he won a tournament for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship, where he publicly rejected the NWA title belt and helped ECW into evolving from an NWA territory to a nationwide phenomenon. He helped ECW into becoming the pioneer of hardcore wrestling and brought “extremism” to the company. Within ECW, he adopted nickname “The Franchise” in reference to his status as the franchise player of the promotion. WWE, who purchased that organization, asserted: “Without Shane Douglas, there would have been no ECW.” He headlined many events for the ECW including three editions of the company’s premier pay-per-view event November to Remember in 1996, 1997 and 1998.
