THE HISTORY OF THE

LEAGUE OF CHAMPIONS

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

SEPTEMBER 17th, 2005 - NOVEMBER 5th, 2005

 

League of Champions was founded in September of 2005 by Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat (Scott Smith). Thought it only survived for a couple of months, it was the most prominent company of its time and was the site of one of the most historically significant events in the history of the business. It was in a League of Champions ring that Jeff Jarrett (Josh Smith) unified the League of Champions, New Era Wrestling, and Solid Gold Wrestling World Heavyweight Championships, merging them into one singular entity for the first and only time in history.

We include this world title history complete and uncut out of respect for the championship, the promotion, and the competitors who worked to make it what it was.
