Jack Perry Says He Will Retire The FTW Championship On Next Week's AEW Dynamite

During tonight's special episode of "AEW Dynamite: Fight for the Fallen," Jack Perry declared that he will "retire" the FTW Championship on next week's episode.

Perry has held the title since he dethroned HOOK on the July 19 episode of "Dynamite." He won by hitting HOOK with the title while the referee's back was turned. It marked two things: Perry's first single title win in AEW and the first loss of HOOK's career. Perry successfully defended it against Rob Van Dam on last week's episode of "Dynamite."

Taz introduced the FTW Championship back in the late 1990s while he was in Extreme Championship Wrestling. Another cornerstone of ECW, Sabu, also held the title during that era.

After a more than 20-year hiatus, Taz revived the title in AEW in July 2020 and presented it to Brian Cage. Ricky Starks later defeated Cage for the title. Starks lost it to HOOK in July 2022.
