From Jim Ross Website..........

Quote Hi J.R., I recall a few years ago when a WWE superstar becoming Grand Slam Champion was quite a distinction and widely recognized. It still is a helluva accomplishment, which JBL became the 8th man to achieve this past Monday night, but nobody seems to talk about it much anymore. With the European Championship retired it's virtually impossible for any more superstars to achieve, so I wondered if you think some new kind of "Grand Slam" should be recognized by WWE? Perhaps holding the WWE & World championships, IC & US titles, and the WWE & World tag team titles; a Double Triple Crown. To my knowledge only one man has achieved this, and that would be EDGE! One would assume that Michael Cole will point out JBL's accomplishments this Monday on Raw. Good point.

* I like the idea of a 'Double Triple Crown' and reckon it would be a cool way to market someone during a push.

* It should at least make the tag team titles seem a little more important if this new Grand Slam got started.

* Definately something Edge could say to talk himself up. But someone else must have held all six belts before surely......

Depends on how you view the newer, WWE tag team belt.

Oddly, the World Tag team belt, currently held by Miz and Morrisson is the one that was in the WWE since forever.

the WWE tag belt is the new one, 'created' in 2002. If its the old WCW tag belts (which i dont think it is) add Bret to the list

otherwise it is indeed, just Edge, as the WWE tag belt has been held by a bunch of mid carders, with the exception of Benoit, Kurt, Rey and Eddie as far as i recall

I like this idea. It's pretty prestigious, and only one person has done it so far. That's actually pretty cool.

* Would you like to see the ECW title added to this so it's even more harder to achieve?
 
* Who would you like to become the second person to win all those titles?
 
* Do you see it as something that creative would make a big deal of?

ECW? Hell no! To me, that's not even a real title! It's scrap metal! I'd like Undertaker to become the second one to win he honor next. Not really seeing creative making a big deal out of it; it's such a mouthful to say(unless they come up with something else).

* Yeah but isn't the ECW title more credible than the tag team belts?
 
* Isn't putting a tag team title on Undertaker so he can be the second 'double triple crown' winner, a waste of The Undertaker?
 
* It's a mouthful but promoting someone as having held so many titles during their career is definately marketable and worth pushing someone with.

I don't think the ECW title is more credible than the tag team titles. The tag team titles are historic...the only complaint with them I have is there should only be one set, not two, of tag team titles. They should be unified since there's only like five tag teams in the WWE. It wouldn't be a waste of the Undertaker at all if done properly. If he won them with Kane, how would that be a waste? It would only promote his greatness and push the tag team titles to being important again.
