Sunday January 6th the United Wrestling Network debuted a new look for their Television Championship. The title is another collaboration of David Marquez and (Belts By Dan). The title was presented to reigning Television Champion Royce Isaccs at this weekends Championship Wrestling from Hollywood Television Taping.
Originally named the NWA International Television Title was created as a secondary title for the CWFH Program and was determined in tournament title “Be The Star.” The finals took place in Los Angeles, where Scorpio Sky defeated SoCal Crazy on July 10th 2011. The championship had gone through different names to reflect changes with the Hollywood promotion. After the split with the National Wrestling Alliance, the title would be renamed the CWFH International TV Championship. When Hollywood gained MavTV as a broadcasting partner, the title’s name and look was changed to reflect MavTV and its parent company Lucas Oil. Lastly when the United Wrestling Network was launched, the Television Title became the first singles championship recognized by the Network.
The title took a brief hiatus when the CWFH reintroduced the Hollywood Heritage Title, but later was reintroduced by Joey Ryan who would bring the title back to Hollywood. There have been 13 Champions to wear title.
Although most of the championship defenses were for the TV audience, a few champions defended the title outside of CWFH or the United Wrestling Network. Scorpio Sky defended the title twice in Covina, California for the Empire Wrestling Federation. Willie Mack defended in Bell Gardens, California as part of the Santino Brothers Wrestling Showcase. Bateman defended the championship in Twenty Nine Palms for Alpha Omega Wrestling. Sky would defend the title in Voorhees New Jersey at CZW’s Decisions. Rocky Romero wore the title at the New Japan events in Anaheim California, although he never actually defended the title.
Royce Isaacs captured the championship on September 29th when he defeated Ray Rosas and Oliver Grimsly in a Triple Threat Match at the Oceanview Pavilion. Isaacs has since captured the CWFH Heritage Championship and has remained dual champion. Isaacs is scheduled to defend the new championship at Rocky Mountain Pro’s January 31st event for a live episode of CHARGED!
