1 Triple H WWE RAW Milwaukee, WI 02/Sep/02 Before Sept. 2, 2002, WWE recognized only one World Champion, and that champion represented both the RAW and SmackDown! brands. Just after SummerSlam, champion Brock Lesnar inked a deal to become exclusive to SmackDown!, leaving RAW without a World champion. RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff then declared that since Lesnar had left Raw that RAW needed its own champion. So with that, he opened a case and pulled out the old WCW Championship and awarded it to Triple H, naming him the first World Heavyweight Champion.
