Why Can Taz Use The FTW Title In AEW?

With Brian Cage the newly-elected FTW Champion, it has been confirmed how Taz has been able to resurrect a title belt from two decades ago.

At the second night of Fyter Fest, Brian Cage’s AEW Championship match at Fight For The Fallen was not the sole point of Taz’s appearance.

He also bestowed the FTW Championship, a title Taz created and held in ECW, on Cage.

It has since been confirmed that Taz still owns the copyright to the title, including the design of the belt, from when he created it back in 1998.

Taz originally brought in the Championship when he was unable to get an ECW Championship shot against an injured Shane Douglas, similar to how Cage’s shot at Jon Moxley has been delayed due to him quarantining with Rene Young after her positive COVID-19 test.

Cage will make his first defence of the FTW Championship this Tuesday on AEW Dark against Brian Pillman Jr.
