The EAW Grand Slam Championship is an accomplishment in e-fed wrestling, specifically as a part of Extreme Answers Wrestling. It is a distinction made to a professional e-fed wrestler who has won championships in four separate categories, or tiers. The tiers typically feature the world championships, the mid-card championships, the lower-card championships, and the tag team championships.
Rules and RegulationsEdit
The Grand Slam Championship is divided into four separate tiers: First(1st) Tier, Second(2nd) Tier, Third(3rd) Tier, and Fourth(4th) Tier. To accomplish the 1st Tier, a professional wrestler would need to win a world championship of any of the three brands. Specifically, these titles include the EAW World Championship, the Answers World Championship, and the EAW World Heavyweight Championship. Only one world championship is required to have finished the First Tier. To accomplish the Second Tier, a professional wrestler would need to win a mid-card championship of any of the three brands. These championships include the EAW National Extreme Championship, EAW Interwire Championship, EAW Hardcore Championship, and EAW New Breed Championship. Only one of these three championships is required to have finished the Second Tier. To accomplish the 3rd Tier, a professional wrestler must win a lower-card championship. These championships include the EAW New Breed(when it was Alternative X) Championship, the Age of Extreme Championship, and the EAW Elite Championship. Only one of these championships has to be won to successfully have completed the Third Tier. To accomplish the Fourth Tier, a professional wrestler must capture the tag team championships. These championships include the EAW Unified Tag Team Championships or either of the two sets of tag team championships that were unified to create the EAW Unified Tag Team Championships (EAW World Tag Team Championships and EAW Tag Team Championships). It should be noted that previous championships such as the ACW World Championship and the ACW Ultimate X Championship that were used in EAW in 2010 are not recognized as championship official championship reigns in Extreme Answers Wrestling.
HistoryEditOriginally, the Grand Slam Championship was not genuinely recognized as a legitimate accomplishment like that of the Triple Crown Championship. However, the Grand Slam Championship gained support when Mister K, who had already accomplished what are now known as first, second, and fourth tier championships, was scheduled for an upcoming EAW Alternative X Championship match at Pain For Pride III. Since the EAW Alternative X Championship was widely recognized as being a lower-card championship, Mister K's match became historical when it was announced by Extreme Answers Wrestling that Mister K was, indeed, fighting to become the first Grand Slam Champion in Extreme Answers Wrestling's near-three-year history. Mister K was successful in obtaining the EAW Alternative X Championship after defeating Alexander Da Vinci at the pinnacle of e-federations, Pain For Pride. Mister K has since then become the first and only Grand Slam Champion in EAW history.
Although the feat is rarely accomplished, several EAW extremists are poised to become viable candidates of becoming Grand Slam Champions. Many extremists listed on the Triple Crown Champions' list could, in theory, become Grand Slam Champions in the future.
