The TNA Global Championship is a professional wrestling championship owned by the United Statesmarker–based Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) promotion. It was introduced on the October 23, 2008 episode of TNA's primary television program TNA Impact! as the TNA Legends Championship.

Being a professional wrestling championship, it is not won legitimately; it is instead won via a scripted ending to a match or awarded to a wrestler because of a storyline. All title changes have occurred at TNA–promoted events thus far. There have been a total of 6 reigns among 5 wrestlers. The first champion was Booker T. The current champion is Eric Young, who is in his first overall reign.

History

The title was introduced during a storyline that pitted young talent with-in the company (the TNA Frontline) against veterans of professional wrestling (the Main Event Mafia). In the weeks leading up to the unveiling of the physical belt, Booker T carried around a steel briefcase. On the October 23, 2008 episode of TNA Impact!, Booker T introduced the belt by removing it from the steel briefcase and announcing its name as the "TNA Legends Championship". He followed by declaring himself as the first official champion. He went on to state that the championship was his and that he would defend it when he saw fit; this meant that the championship was unsanctioned by TNA in the storyline. On March 15, 2009 at TNA's Destination X pay-per-view (PPV) event, A.J. Styles defeated Booker T to win the championship. Afterwards on the March 19, 2009 episode of TNA Impact!, Styles was credited as becoming the first-ever TNA Grand Slam Champion, by winning the World Heavyweight (NWA or TNA), the World Tag Team (NWA or TNA), and the TNA X Division Championship along with the Legends Championship. TNA's then-primary authority figure, Jim Cornette, then announced that the TNA Legends Championship had become an official TNA sanctioned championship thanks to Styles defeating Booker T for it legally via the contract the two had signed to make the match official (in storyline terms). On the October 29, 2009 episode of Impact!, then-champion Eric Young renamed the championship the "TNA Global Championship". He went on to decree that he was not going to defend it against any American wrestlers nor on American soil. Soon after, TNA began to recognize the name change on their website.

Belt designs

During the championship's history, it has had one design. It begins with a red leather strap that is covered with two small gold plates that are encrusted with silver. In the center of each plate stands a figure resembling a wrestler holding up a championship belt (depending on which side the plate is on, the belt may be in a different hand). On the outer edge of the plate are red and blue gems, which circle the entire plate. The center golden plate of the belt has TNA's official logo engraved in the very center with the word "Legends" above it and the word "Championship" below it. At the very top of the center plate is a king's crown. This plate also has gems circling the outer edge.
