The Television Championship was a much sought after belt in the NWA and WCW.
It has been held by some of the all-time greats and has produced many great matches in its history.
It was used as a stepping stone at times to bigger and better things while other times it would prove to be a wrestlers only success.
Towards the end of its existence, the title’s importance dwindled.
It went from a title that many wanted to a title that nobody wanted. When Scott Hall literally threw it in the trash, I knew that was it for the belt.
I was hoping that with the company’s “reboot” that the belt would see resurgence but it was just scrapped.
While TNA Wrestling has their own TV Championship, its status as a mid-card title is as low as WCW’s was before it was thrown in the garbage.
The Television Championship was typically defended every week on television in matches with a 10-minute time limit. As time went by, it became every other week, then just on pay-per-view before it stopped appearing all together.
Now the WCW World Television Championship is gone and forgotten.
Thanks for reading!
There are only three titles left in the series, but I’m not sure which one I’m going to do next.
Come back on Sunday, though, for the next edition of Abandoned!
