All Japan Pro Wrestling Triple Crown Championship 三冠ヘビー級王者

PhotobucketThe Triple Crown consists of the NWA International Heavyweight, NWA UN (United National) Heavyweight Championship, and the PWF (Pacific Wrestling Federation) Heavyweight Championships.
The first idea of the title to be joined came from a bout between Genichiro Tenryu, who was the UN & PWF Champion at the time, and Bruiser Brody, who was holding the International belt, on April 15, 1988. The match though ended in a double ring out, but this would lead us to the unification a year later. Just a few days later, Brody would lose the belt to Jumbo Tsuruta on April 18, 1988. On July 27, 1988 Stan Hansen would get the win over Tenryu and in the process come to hold both titles.
On October 17, 1988, with new champions this time around, another unification match was set with Hansen vs. Jumbo. Though again the match was held to a draw between both competitors. It seemed at this point the belts were meant to with their respected champion.
This would lead us to April 18, 1989, when yet another title unification match was set between Hansen and Jumbo Tsuruta. After 17 minutes into the match Jumbo withstood the attack by Hansen and managed to pick up the crowning victory. Then such the Triple Crown Championship has been the main Heavyweight Championship used for All Japan for over the last 20 years.
