This will be the first time that the title has been vacant since Low Ki became champion. To determine who the new champion will be, a tournament has been set up, the first of its kind since Road To The Title/Crowing A Champion in 2002.

The event will start on July 27th in Providence and will continue on August 3rd in Toronto, August 27th in NYC and finish at Death Before Dishonor XI weekend in Philadelphia on September 20th and 21st.

Michael Elgin has been the first man entered in the tournament, as stated in the video above. More wrestlers are expected to be announced in the weeks to come.
