TNA has officially retired the King of the Mountain Championship at last night’s 8/13 Impact Wrestling TV tapings from Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios.
The company taped a segment featuring new President Billy Corgan introducing the TNA Grand Championship. The title will be the focus of a new division featuring matches in rounds with judges. A tournament has been announced to crown a first ever champion.
Lashley will go down as the final TNA King of the Mountain Champion after the title was introduced last year as part of the reintroduction of Jeff Jarrett for last year’s Slammiversary PPV. The title, which was first introduced in 2008 as the TNA Legends title, had been touted under a variety of names including the TNA Global title and the TNA Television title.
