The FTW Championship, last seen in ECW, was reintroduced at Fyter Fest tonight.
Prior to tonight’s show, Taz had promised a major announcement on social media. When he came to the ring with Brian Cage, he was carrying something in a black bag. He eventually revealed the FTW Championship, a championship he introduced in ECW in 1998 that was eventually unified with the ECW World Championship.
Taz emphasized that no promotion has never recognized the title, but people know that whoever holds the title is the baddest son of a bitch on the planet. He said that Cage was no longer an uncrowned champion, he is the FTW champion.
The move comes as Cage is set to face Jon Moxley for the AEW World title at Fight for the Fallen next week. Originally scheduled for tonight, it was moved to next week after Moxley’s wife, Renee Young, tested positive for COVID-19.
