Controversy/ Unrecognized Title Changes

1.  Pure Violence Champion Geza Kalman defeated Steve Corino on July 9th, 2007 to win the Pure Wrestling Championship and remain Pure Violence Champion.  Geza was then made aware that Eddie Osbourne has interfered and cost Corino the Championship.  Geza took the win, but then returned the Title to Corino.

2.  Ruffy Silverstein defeated Reggie Marley to win the Pure Wrestling Championship in a title vs title match in the PWA/GLCW war. Commissioner Juan Ortiz over turned the decision later that evening as he saw a tape with Reggie’s foot under the bottom rope.

3.  March 28th, 2008 Elian Habanero defeated Eddie Osbourne to become the Pure Wrestling Champion. 11 Days later Elian was deported back to Cuba and stripped of the Pure Wrestling Championship

4.  Juan Ortiz defeated Reggie Marley to win the Pure Wrestling Championship on April 17th, 2009. Reggie then won the Golden Ticket Rumble and cashed his ticket in and defeated Juan Ortiz as Ebony Ryder to win the Pure Wrestling Championship. Juan is the only man whose reign lasted less than a day as Champion.  Ebony Ryder revealed right away that he was indeed Reggie Marley.

5. Samoa Joe defeated Eddie Osbourne on January 7th, 2011.  Title was returned to Eddie as apparently Paul Wright had made a clause stating Joe could not use the Muscle Buster in the match or the title would not change hands.
