Birth of the Internet ChampionshipEdit
The Internet championship was debuted on the first ever episode of Aftershock on 18/01/12, intended as an "Aftershock only" title used to boost some of the lower card wrestlers and prime them for Shockwave. The title however soon gained steam, and began to appear on Shockwave and Pay Per View events.
RedesignEditAs of the Redemption pay per view (released 17/12/12) all the XWF championship belts were given a redesign. The internet Championships new look was very similar to the original, but featured a silver design on a light blue belt strap.
10 Defend Rule Edit
Starting Season 2, The Owner brought in a new rule for the Internet Championship, called the "10 Defend Rule" The rule states that if the holder of the belt successfully retains the title 10 times, he may "cash" the title in (Give up the belt) for a title shot at the World Heavyweight Champion. Tobius Upson was the first wrestler to have the title during this rule, and defended the title 9 times, before dropping it to Jacob Drake at the Meltdown PPV.
