Titles Not In the Title History Section

Two that immediately come to mind are state championships from ECW, which I believe were the Pennsylvania championship and Maryland championship, if my memory serves me correctly.

How many more can you guys list and can you come up with any title histories and/or title defense histories? Thanks.
