*Updated* Is 2022 the year of the first modern WrestleZone Triple Crown winner?

*Updated 19/5/22*

Back in 2018, I drafted a list of seven wrestlers that were on the cusp of becoming the first WrestleZone Triple Crown winner.

The modern triple crown has yet to be achieved in WrestleZone, winning all active titles in a company puts any wrestler in the upper echelon in that promotions history.

Many wrestlers have held two out of three active championships in WrestleZone.


What is the Modern Triple Crown?

Modern Triple Crown Qualifications:

  • Undisputed WrestleZone Championship
  • WrestleZone Tri-Counties Championship
  • WrestleZone Tag Team Championship

Original Triple Crown

Two wrestlers have completed a triple crown in WrestleZone, from 2008-2011 there were three active championships in the promotion. The Heavyweight and No Limits Championships were merged on 26th February 2011 when then-Heavyweight Champion Damien defeated then-No Limits Champion Scotty Swift.

Scotty Swift25th February 200927th March 201010th August 2013
with Jay Lethal

From 2011-2017 there were only two active championships in WrestleZone until the Tri-Counties Championship was introduced with Aspen Faith becoming the inaugural champion at Aberdeen Anarchy 2017. This reactivated the Triple Crown being a possible achievement in the North East.

Since I made that list in 2018, the potential first modern Triple Crown winners has increased from seven to twelve which means 2022 has an even higher chance of this accolade occurring.

Along with the potential of twelve triple crown winners in the near future, six wrestlers could achieve a Grand Slam when we include a Regal Rumble win.

When you look down the list, you can make arguments for any of these men to capture the last title required which makes this even more interesting, at least in my mind.

2022 is (hopefully) the first full year of WrestleZone since 2019 with more shows, more opportunities will follow. It’s an exciting time for us mega-geeks to overthink things. For all we know, someone from left field could win all the belts in 2022.

Who do you think will be the first modern WrestleZone Triple Crown winner?
