Introduced in the spring of 2014, this championship was the crown jewel of "The Wrestling Kennection", awarded to those who are tops in making PPV predictions!
As you can imagine, this championship was hotly contested among the WK Krew, almost always changing hands from PPV to PPV.
Unlike other wrestling championships, this title wasn't won by one's blood, sweat and tears, but rather through cunning, logic, and how well you knew about how the WWE and its inner workings (or lack thereof).
The title was unified with the Big 4 PPV Title in early 2019, becoming the World Wrestling Kennection title, and won by Dan Kaufman, who would not only rebuff an impromptu challenge from Ken, but send him packing from the show altogether in the process!
The last titleholder, however, was none other than Zack Martinkus, who briefly returned in mid-2019 to avenge his former co-host Ken's narrow loss by not only winning the championship from Dan Kaufman, but absconding with it from the show altogether!

WK Big 4 PPV Championship
Named after the WWE's "Big 4" PPVs (Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Survivor Series), this secondary title was introduced and awarded to Zack in January 2016.
The Big 4 PPV title was won by the WK Krew member who places second at a "Big 4" WWE Pay-Per-View.
While it was initially created to honor Zack for his several close calls at clinching the King of PPV title, the Big 4 PPV championship was later fleshed out by Ken and company to provide its holder an opportunity in the duration between any two "Big 4" PPVs to cash in for a chance to double up on points for a PPV match pick, even a "Lock of the Night", meaning a possible whopping 4 points would be theirs, almost ensuring a King of PPV championship victory!
Buyer beware, though! If the holder got the pick wrong, they LOST a point! Risk or reward at its finest!
The title was unified with the King of PPV Title in early 2019 and thus discontinued.

Zack Martinkus was the first WK Krew member to win both championships...as well as the first to win the King of PPV title despite losing out on his Big 4 cash-in.
The concepts of the Big 4 PPV Championship were borrowed from WWE's "Money in the Bank" and Impact Wrestling's "Option C" for its X Division Championship, both of which could be cashed in for a shot at their respective promotion's top championship!
Nick Giglio was the first WK Krew member to successfully cash in their Big 4 PPV title and win the WK King of PPV championship!
