After Van Dam relinquished the belt, Super Crazy would capture it 8 days later, after beating Rhyno in a tournament final at Living Dangerously 2000
The ECW television championship is best recognized as being held by Rob Van Dam for 2 years, however, many legends have held the belt. This title never made it to the WWE revival in 2006, but its legacy is forever remembered.
