  32. In 1991, Ric Flair was fired/quit WCW. He showed up in the WWF soon thereafter holding the WCW title and claimed to be the “Real World’s champion.” The reason he was able to leave the company with the title is because he owned that title. WCW later bought it back from Flair for reportedly $75,000.
