The ECW World Television Championship is a professional wrestling television championship in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) and later in WWE for Extreme (WWEFE, or just WWE). It was introduced in National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) affiliate and ECW precursor, Eastern Championship Wrestling in 1992 but was established under ECW in 1994. It served as the second highest ranked title in ECW.
The ECW World Television Championship was introduced in August 12, 1992 under Eastern Championship Wrestling, the precursor to ECW as the Eastern Championship Wrestling Television Championship. This was during the time Eastern Championship Wrestling was a subsidiary of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), a promotion that is comprised of numerous subsidiaries. In September 1994, Eastern Championship Wrestling seceded from the National Wrestling Alliance, and became Extreme Championship Wrestling. The title then became known as the Extreme Championship Wrestling World Television Championship. The title continued to be defended within the promotion until April 2001, when ECW closed down. ECW's assets were subsequently purchased by World Wrestling Entertainment. In 2006, WWE relaunched the ECW franchise as a WWE brand, choosing to revive the ECW World Heavyweight Championship, ECW Tag Team Championship and the Hardcore Championship alongside the Television Championship.
