WWE: These superstars are the youngest champions of all-time
WWE has created a name for itself in the world of pro-wrestling. Moreover, it is the superstars, who play a massive role, both as a performer as well as a champion, to make the promotion look even more wonderful. While champions play a crucial role, some script history by winning at a young age. And here, we look at the youngest champions of all-time.
While everyone might not remember him, but David Flair, son of WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, did become a champion in WWE by mere doing nothing. Although he lacked proper in-ring skills, he was awarded the vacant US Championship by "Slick Ric", the then WCW president. Nonetheless, what people do remember him for is his romantic relationship with Stacy Keibler.
Another champion at the age of 20, and three months younger than David, Kenny Dykstra won the World Tag-Team Championship. A member of The Spirit Squad, along with his partner, they pulled off a huge upset when they beat Big Show and Kane for the championship. Interestingly, this win came just 18 days after his 20th birthday.
Although Tyler Bate was promising, not many would have thought that he would go on to become the inaugural UK Champion. Nonetheless, he defied all odds, overcame the challenges of Tucker, Jordan Devlin, Wolfgang, and even Pete Dunne, as he won the title just a couple of months short of his 20th birthday. This makes him the third-youngest champion in WWE history.
We have already said above that Kenny was the third-youngest Tag-Team Champion of all. However, he has been beaten by Rene Dupree, who along with his La Resistance partner Sylvain Grenier, won the titles a young age of 19. A year later, he became a two-time Tag-Team champion, alongside Kenzo Suzuki. I guess teenagers are ought to be jealous of his success.
Wait, what! A champion at the age of just 10? The answer to the above question is 'yes'. It all happened at WrestleMania 34 when Braun Strowman picked Nicholas from the crowd as his mystery partner, who went on to defeat The Bar (Sheamus and Cesaro) for the Tag-Team title. Unfortunately, Nicholas relinquished the title the following night on Raw. Can it get better?
