Current Champion: THE CAPTAIN
The Max Wrestling World Championship was introduced on the 300th episode of the Max Wrestling Podcast as a surprise from Mike Larkin, Travis Anderson, Moses Marquez and Emir Costello - whom presented it to "The Captain" Dazzy Dangerously. The current champion is The Phoenix in his second reign - making him the first two-time World Champion.
Meant as the top tier title in Max Wrestling, the title was similar to the Promo Championship, except it was decided by the World Title Committee.
The World Championship can be defended in trivia competition or in a pre-determined promo exhibition, where the champion and challenger decide the outcome. This method was originally used at PromoMania VI in a cinematic match.
One exception was the King Of The Mic 2021 final, where Anderson challenged The Phoenix to also defend his World Title in the match. As the match was already a tournament final, it remained a decision by public vote.
Since promo competition was discontinued on Max Wrestling in October 2021, the World Championship is the only championship that can be defended in promo form, but with no vote.
There have been 4 different champions over 6 reigns.
The current World Champion, The Captain defeated The Phoenix in a Cinematic Sequel, pinning him after a flamethrower attack and a superkick, tying Phoenix as a two-time champion.
