The Knowledge Championship is contested over at each Max Wrestling special event in trivia battles, currently held by Mike Larkin in his record-tying third reign. Multiple rounds of trivia determine the Championship, usually between the Champion and 2-3 challengers, except for PromoMania and an Iron Bank cash-in where the Title is defended head-to-head against a number one contender with ten questions each. The defence can vary at Podcast Promo Rumble and PromoSlam between one or two challengers, but with classic trivia rounds.
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
Current Champion Mike Larkin cashed in the 2020 Iron Bank Contract at PromoMania VI to defeat The Phoenix, who had already defeated Daniel Crimmins. In doing so, Larkin tied with Phoenix for the most reigns as Champion.
