Back in the 1970’s and 1980’s, kayfabe magazines such as Pro Wrestling World and Pro Wrestling Illustrated would often have a listing at the back of the magazines that listed every major promotion’s major champions. It was a real treat for those who couldn’t always keep up with every promotion to keep an eye on who was holding the gold elsewhere. Once a month, Last Word on Pro Wrestling looks to continue this tradition, including many of the world’s top major independents as well. Here’s the roll call as we head into September of 2017.

Special thanks to all the wrestling fans around the world who have requested additional promotions to be added – we started with about 35 promotions and we’re now covering over 60 promotions worldwide! If you want to see a promotion not listed added to future reports, leave us the promotion’s name in the comments section at the end of the article. We added over 10 more this month alone!

NOTE: To avoid spoilers, champions are listed per television appearance – any title changes that occurred during tapings for future episodes are not revealed.
