The Global Championship is a midcard championship within the WTX Universe series. It was introduced on August 17th 2015, replacing the former Raw midcard championship, the Cruiserweight Championship. In 2016, the championship was moved to SmackDown.

Upon Kane winning the championship, the championship was merged with the ECW Championship, retiring the championship.

At SummerSlam 2016, the championship was reinstated in place of ECW once again.


The Global Championship debuted as the new midcard championship of the Raw brand on August 17th 2015. The championship was introduced in place of the Cruiserweight Championship that had just been won by Carlito the night before at SummerSlam. Carlito introduced the championship to remove the weight restriction that the old championship had.
