The Lock Wrestling Federation (LWF) Imperial Championship is a tertiary championship in the Lock Wrestling Federation. It was retired in January 2005 when it was unified with the LWF Cross Hemisphere Championship.
Creation of the Championship
On September 22, 2003, on an episode of Warzone, Lock unveiled the UWF Imperial Title, which had previously been slated to be unified with the LWF People's Championship at Meltdown, however the match never took place and the title had instead been vacanted. Lock used his power as owner of the federation to declare Emperor the first LWF Imperial Champion.
Supplanting the People's Title
Commissioner Arelas was appalled at the decision to add another championship belt to what he felt was a lineup of too many titles as it was. He decided to fix the situation personally, and at Day of Reckoning Arelas faced both champions in a handicap match with both titles on the line, and defeated both Imperial Champion Emperor and People's Champion Red Fusion.
The following night on Warzone, Arelas declared that the newly unified title was the People's Title, and he carried a brand new title belt. Arelas defended that title against Emperor, and a distraction by Lock enabled Emperor to win the match. After the match, Lock declared that the era of the people had passed and that Emperor's new title was in fact the surviving Imperial Championship.
Unification with Cross-Hemisphere Title
On January 13, 2005, on Lockdown, current Imperial Champion McCammon defeated Cross-Hemisphere Champion Red Fusion in a match to unify the two titles. McCammon remains to this day the final Imperial Champion.
