BREAKING: Beyond Wrestling’s Uncharted Territory picked up for third season!

Beyond Wrestling’s critically acclaimed series, “Uncharted Territory,” returns to IWTV this October. 

The third season of the weekly series will stream live on IWTV every Thursday night at 8pm ET, beginning on October 7th. 

Season three will consist of 13 episodes and conclude on December 30th.

At the time of its debut in April of 2019, “Uncharted Territory” was the only wrestling show broadcasting live every week that was not produced by WWE.  

“There is no substitute for LIVE,” says Beyond’s Drew Cordeiro.

“We have spent the last 18 months putting together a roster of the best young, unsigned athletes in pro wrestling. The first two seasons of ‘Uncharted Territory’ launched many careers into the national spotlight. Season three promises to be the most competitive yet. Our crowd in Worcester has the most important job in pro wrestling since they decide who will carry the industry into the future.”

More details on the return of Uncharted Territory will be made available in the coming weeks.

You can watch the first two seasons of Uncharted Territory any time with your IWTV subscription.

PWI Recognizes IWTV & PAWD Titles As World Championships

*The Following Press Release Was Issued By IWTV*


PWI RECOGNIZES IWTV & PAWD TITLES AS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) has officially conferred World Championship status on The IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship and Pan-Afrikan World Diaspora Wrestling Championship.

The announcement came just hours before IWTV 100, where IWTV Independent Wrestling World Champion Wheeler Yuta made the 100th defense of the title against current number one contender Daniel Garcia. The Pan-Afrikan World Diaspora Champion, Trish Adora, was also in action as she teamed with Lee Moriarty against AEW’s Orange Cassidy and Kris Statlander.

The tradition of PWI assigning World Championship status to major titles goes back decades, tracing its origins to the early years of wrestling and boxing magazines, who used the designation as a way to signal to readers which championships were most significant. PWI has been highly selective over the years in applying the World Championship distinction, in effect serving as a neutral sanctioning body for wrestlers, wrestling promotions and fans.

Reached for comment, PWI Editor-in Chief Kevin McElvaney explained the publication’s decision.

“Both the IWTV and PAWD belts are traveling symbols of wrestling achievement and greatness. Like the original NWA World heavyweight championship, they cross territorial and promotional lines, inviting the very best wrestlers to earn the right to hold them. For that reason, these prizes are spoken of with reverence by competitors the world over.”
