The semi-finals saw Rob Van Dam defeat JBL and R-Truth defeat The Miz, in the finals R-Truth defeated The Miz to become the first ever WTX Champion.

The championship was created to allow superstars who were above the Cruiserweight Championship weight limit to have a tertiary championship they could compete for on Main Event, in hopes of becoming not only WTX Champion, but a Grand Slam Champion. The championship was also created for lesser featured superstars of the main three brands to have a championship to compete for, with the championship primarily being defended on Main Event.
