Title History


ICWS Championship


The ICWS Championship is the holy grail for everyone who competes in the ICWS. They all dream of one day being the holder of the title, but in reality very few people will be good enough to realise that dream. The ICWS Championship has had a proud history from the days in the UWF to today, with a variety of wrestlers holding the coveted title belt.

ICWS Hardcore Championship


The ICWS Hardcore Championship made its debut at Uprising and since then it has been firmly established as the secondary title of the ICWS. The title must always be defended under hardcore rules, meaning there are no disqualifications, falls count anywhere and the match will continue until a winner is determined. At one point, the title was also defended under the 24/7 rule, which meant the title could change hands at any time with a referee present, but this rule has since been phased out. There have been some memorable matches for the ICWS Hardcore Championship and it certainly has a unique history.

The new title was introduced at Twisted Metal VI and recognises the best tag team combination in the ICWS. As the ICWS roster continues to grow and more tag teams make their mark, this new championship is set to become another prestigious prize in the ICWS.
