A Grand Slam is an accomplishment in professional wrestling. This distinction is given to a wrestler who has won four specific championships within a promotion throughout the course of their career. The WWE has its own peramiters for a Grand Slam. While in WHEI each brand has its own version of a Grand Slam while also recognizing WWE's own overall version. The four titles typically include three singles championships plus a tag team championship. The singles championships include a primary (world), secondary (midcard), and tertiary (lower midcard) championship.

Overall Edit

WWE Edit

In WWE (formerly WWF) the term "Grand Slam was originally used by Shawn Michaels to describe himself upon winning the European Championship on September 20, 1997. Michaels had previously held the WWF, Intercontinental, and the Tag Team Championship with Diesel.

In May 2001 WWF.com indicated that the Hardcore Championship was an acceptable substitute for the European Championship in the Grand Slam. Kane, who had defeated Triple H to win the Intercontinental Championship on May 20, 2001, was acknowledged as a Grand Slam winner under these perameters.

In April 2006, WWE indicated that the World Heavyweight Championship was an acceptable substitute for the WWE Championship in the Grand Slam, and the WWE Tag Team Championship was an acceptable substitute for the World Tag Team Championship. As Kurt Angle was recognized as a Grand Slam winner under these conditions.

Following WrestleMania 31, WWE introduced a new vesion of their Grand Slam, consisting of the four active men's championships in WWE: the WWE, Intercontinental, United States, WWE Tag Team Championships. Twelve wrestlers were recognized as Grand Slam winners under these conditions, including five who had been under the previous perameters.

When the brand extension was re-established in 2016, WWE indicated its two new championships, the Universal and SmackDown Tag Team Championships, count as acceptable substitutes for their counterparts.

As of August 28, 2018, there have been 19 individual Grand Slam Champions. Fourteen wrestlers who achieved it once, seven under the original format, and seven under the modern format. While five wrestlers have achieved the Grand Slam under both formats, three of whom automatically become modern Grand Slam Champions with the introduction of the modern format. As well as two who became Grand Slam Champions in the modern format after the fact.
