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.”

Beyond Wrestling’s Uncharted Territory, Episode 15 Streams Live Tonight At 8 PM EDT On IWTV.LIVE

*The Following Press Release Was Issued By IWTV*

UNCHARTED TERRITORY FEATURES BIG DEBUTS, RETURNS AND THOMAS SANTELL AND NICK GAGE TEAMING FOR THE FIRST TIME

Episode Fifteen of Beyond Wrestling‘s weekly series Uncharted Territory streams live on IWTV.LIVE TONIGHT (7/10) at 8pm EDT. This week’s show includes multiple former Discovery Gauntlet entrants returning, as well as several major debuts. In addition to the in ring action, Beyond has announced that another Americanrana 19 match will be announced live on the broadcast. Let’s take a look at what we know so far.

  • Two weeks ago Thomas Santell saved Nick Gage from an attack at the hands of Richard Holliday and Kenn Doane. Last week Gage returned the favor, coming to Santell’s aid and thwarting the assault of Cam Zagami, Richard Holliday and Christian Casanova. This week Santell and Gage team up for the first time ever!
  • Impact Wrestling star and Freelance Wrestling World Champion “All Ego” Ethan Page makes his Uncharted Territory debut against one of Beyond Wrestling’s top talents Josh Briggs.
  • Kris Statlander has struggled to get back to her winning ways since losing the IWTV Championship back to Orange Cassidy in June. TONIGHT she addresses her future in Beyond Wrestling.
  • Since coming back to Beyond Wrestling Chuck O’Neil has spent the bulk of his time blindsiding and bullying people with impunity. But in recent weeks Wheeler YUTA has put a stop to this and has been the one man who seems to be able to block O’Neil’s technically precise and dangerous armbar. This week both of them will be in singles action taking on former Discovery Gauntlet entrants as O’Neil battles fan favorite “Big Bacon” Brad Hollister, while YUTA takes on the impressive DL Hurst.
  • Speaking of The Discovery Gauntlet, Christian Casanova is back for the fourth straight week. Will he be able to make it five, or will a new competitor enter the fray, pick up the win and move on?
  • Bear Country have been on a rampage since making their Beyond debuts back at Uncharted Territory, Episode Five. TONIGHT they face off against the debuting tandem of Jimmy Lloyd and KTB in a match that is sure to be a fight.

Uncharted Territory streams live every Wednesday at 8PM EDT / 5PM PDT from Worcester, Massachusetts! Watch it live on IWTV as part of your monthly subscription!
