The Knowledge Championship is contested over at each Max Wrestling special event in trivia battles, currently held by The Phoenix in his record-breaking fourth reign.
The Knowledge Championship is determined by wrestling trivia. The default match type is a 30-second quickfire, but other stipulations include multiple rounds of various types of trivia.
In 2017, Promo Series began the annual Winner Stays On gauntlet where the Title is defended head-to-head against a series of challengers where the winner stays on and defends against the next challenger.
The Champion's Chase match was introduced at Trivia Takeover 5.0 in 2020, where the Knowledge Champion faces a team of up to four challengers, looking to eliminate them individually to reduce their chances in the final. If the Champion is able to eliminate all four challengers, they retain. However if the Champion is unable to eliminate the entire team, the survivors face off to determine the new Champion.
The Knowledge Championship is Max Wrestling's longest-running accolade, introduced in 2016. There have been 7 different champions over 16 reigns.
