Throughout the history of professional wrestling, the business has awarded championship belts in many divisions. While some have been forgotten over the years, some titles have stood the test of time.
The WWE has seen almost 30 titles defended, but today only six remain.
TNA Wrestling began with three titles—the NWA World and Tag Team Championships as well its own X-Division title, but today it owns its own belts and fans see six titles defended between its ropes.
Ring of Honor Wrestling began with just two, but has since added another title to its ranks.
While Shimmer has only been around for a few years, the most well-known all-women’s wrestling promotion currently holds two titles.
Wrestling Gold will concentrate on the active titles of the companies listed, as well as the NWA World and Tag Team Championships, and any other active title the readers would like to see!
Sorry for being gone for so long, but what’s important is that Wrestling Gold is back and will remain here until it is finished! For this return edition of the series, I present the history of the ROH World Television Championship!
The title was established in January 2010 with an eight-man tournament set to take place the following month. With a new TV show in place, ROH and HDNet wanted a title that could be defended regularly on television.
Due to a bad storm in Philadelphia, where the tournament was being taped, the second half of the tournament didn’t take place until March. Since then, the Television Championship has become a prominent part of Ring of Honor.
It was briefly inactive from March to June 2011 when ROH lost their television deal, but thanks to Sinclair Broadcasting Group, the belt began to get defended again and a new TV show was established.
In its short three-year history, the ROH World Television Championship has seen seven champions, all of whom are some of the best Ring of Honor has to offer!
