First Look: The NEW IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship pays tribute to Promotions that host Defenses
*The Following Press Release Was Issued By IWTV*
In a relatively brief amount of time, the IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship has emerged as a unifying force on the indie wrestling scene. Though the championship has only been around for a year and a half, in that time it has been defended 37 times in 15 promotions, in 13 different states, against dozens of different opponents.
Three wrestlers have held the IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship:
- Jonathan Gresham: 126 Days, 7 Defenses
- Tracy Williams: 309 Days, 17 Defenses
- Orange Cassidy: Current Champion, 13 Defenses
All of them have been excellent representatives of independent wrestling and their combined efforts have served to make the IWTV Championship what it is today.
Recently IWTV debuted a new title design for the Independent Wrestling Championship. This new design honors and reflects the history of the championship, as promotions that have hosted championship defenses are featured on plates affixed to the title. New plates will continue to be added as defenses are made in new places, making the championship an evolving monument to its own history.
