WCPW Lightweight (up to 210 lb.)...

The Lightweight title is another "weight-division" title.  These came about because, long before it was fashionable, we recognized that the size of an athlete's heart is in no way measured by his or her physical stature.  The first champion was:

WCPW Bare Knuckles...

The Bare Knuckles title was introduced at Battle of the Belts 11 to address the fans' desire to see WCPW have its own "hardcore" style title.  The first champion was:

Turbo, crowned May 22, 1999, Morton College, Cicero, IL

Turbo was stripped of the belt when he did not show up for a title defense.  A tournament ensued, with a new champion to be decided at "War at the World" � a two-day event at the New World Music Theatre in Tinley Park, IL.
