“Real” World Titles, Pt. 3 – THE FINALE

On the eve of tonight’s EPIC world title unification match at T̶N̶A̶ I̶m̶p̶a̶c̶t̶ ̶W̶r̶e̶s̶t̶l̶i̶n̶g̶ GFW Slammiversary, here’s the third and final round of this game: which of these do you consider "real" world titles?

– The NXT Championship (The top title in the brand, has been defended worldwide, but then again, it’s also been held by Bo Dallas.)

I think it qualifies. Held by World title-level guys and defended worldwide = World title.

– The AWA Championship

Duh, of course it was a World title.

– The WCCW/WCWA/USWA championship (ANY variation of the three.)

Nah. In fact, the running joke in the Observer about the World Class/ USWA title was that it was only ever defended in Texas.

– The ECW FTW championship (I’m admittedly reaching now.)

Yeah, it’s a reach.

– The GFW Global–bahahaha, sorry, couldn’t say that one with a straight face. But I guess it’s about to become the de facto #3 or belt in America, after the Universal and WWE titles.

I’d say it qualifies, because the TNA World title did.

– One final question: what do you consider the most prestigious secondary belt in history? (Example: IC title during the 80s, the US title at a particular time, etc.)

​If you consider the World heavyweight title as secondary to the WWE championship (up until they were unified by Randy Orton) then I’d say that one. ​

Thanks for playing.
