Wins a 60-man, 3-ring battle royal, eliminating
One Man Gang; Hulk Hogan was not thrown over the top rope, but referee
Randy Anderson, believing Hogan was in fact eliminated, awarded
the match to Savage after Gang was eliminated.
Declared vacant on 98/01/08 in Daytona Beach,
FL by J.J. Dillon, the chairman of WCW Executive Committee, because
of the controversial endings at the 97/12/28 card in Washington,
DC and the 97/12/29 card in Baltimore, MD.
On 00/07/09 in Daytona Beach, FL, Jarrett intentionally
lays down in the ring while Hulk Hogan covered him for the pin;
matchmaker Vince Russo comes back out and explains to the crowd
that he has been dealing with Hogan's politics all day and gives
Hogan "his" WCW World title belt as the Hulk Hogan Memorial Belt
because it doesn't mean squat anymore; Russo claims Jarrett is still
the WCW Champion but with a new belt and will defend his title against
Booker T, a man who has been "held back by Hogan for 14 years".
