• Backstage News On How AEW Is Allowed To Use The FTW Title

As seen during Night 2 of AEW Fyter Fest this past Wednesday, ECW Legend Taz brought back the FTW World Championship and awarded it to Brian Cage.

AEW is now billing Cage as the FTW World Champion heading into next week’s AEW World Championship match at Fight For The Fallen.

According PWInsider, Taz owns the copyright for the FTW Title, ECW didn’t own it and that’s why WWE didn’t get the rights to this belt, so AEW can use it without any legal issues:

“Taz actually holds the copyright on the actual design of the belt, which allows him to do whatever he wishes with the design and the FTW intellectual property within professional wrestling.

If he ever wanted to merchandise the belt, such a replicas, t-shirts, etc. Taz would be well within his rights to do so.”

Brian Cage will defend the FTW World Championship against Brian Pillman Jr. next week on AEW Dark.
