The last time WWE had one single heavyweight champion was at SummerSlam 2002 when Brock Lesnar defeated The Rock to win the Undisputed WWE title. Soon after that, the ‘big gold’ World Heavyweight title was brought into the picture and awarded to Triple H as the RAW title.
Tonight, WWE guarantees to make history with two champions facing each other, title for title, and only one champion will be standing at the end of the TLC pay-per-view.
This will be the second time that WWE will unify the titles. Chris Jericho defeated both The Rock and Steve Austin in the same night to become the first ever Undisputed WWE champion in over 50 years at Vengeance 2001.
