To hold Championship gold is the aim of every Superstar who enters WWE.

Not just a huge feel-good moment, winning a championship means your name is etched in history, and that no matter how many champions may come after you, your legacy has been immortalized.

In the WWE, there are plenty of titles to go around, with the company recently introducing the Women's Tag Team Championships, which will be awarded at the Elimination Chamber.

But whilst the rush of holding a Championship must be an indescribable feeling, so often has it come and gone without pomp and ceremony.

Some Superstars have even been so unlucky, that they have held titles, and for one reason or another, have had their reigns disqualified from the company's history books.

Here are five shocking title changes in WWE that technically never took place, according to WWE.

#5 Jericho wins the big one, in 2000

Jericho upset The Game in 2000, to briefly hold the WWF Championship.

From the moment Chris Jericho burst into WWE in the summer of 1999, he was a star.

Interrupting The Rock on his very first night, Jericho would gather a legion of fans, who loved his in-ring ability and no-nonsense style on the mic.

It was this gift of gab that convinced Triple H to put his WWF Championship on the line in 2000 on RAW, in what would be a grave error for The Game.

Upsetting the McMahon-Helmsley regime, Jericho would become WWF Champion, thanks in part to a fast count by Earl Hebner, who had suffered at the hands of Triple H.

After consultations with other referees, Jericho would be forced to relinquish his WWF Title, and would have to wait until December 2001 to hold the gold again.
