The TANW Male Open Class Championship is one of two championships in Technical Aberrations Network Wrestling to contested under the Open Class Rulings. It was crowned at TANW 1 on April 8, 2017 in a hardcore match between Big Boy Gladwin and Mark Anderson, with the latter winning. As with all championships in TANW, it is not a physical item but rather an actual title. Thus, when one is in possession of this championship, they are legally the TANW Open Class Champion. As with its female equivalent, it is defended on every TANW show. Due to all matches for this championship being contested 1v1, its ELO is always contested at K = 96.

The Open Class Rulings

The Open Class Rulings are a set of rules that apply to any challenges for either of the TANW Open Class Championships, in addition to any other "open challenge" style matches that take place in TANW. They are as follows:

  • Matches must be 1v1.
  • Match type is determined by the challenger.
    • In situations where the championship is vacant, there is a coinflip to determine who picks the stipulation.
  • Challengers may choose to remain anonymous going into the match, in which case they will enter after the champion.
    • In situations where the championship is vacant and botch challengers are anonymous, entry order will be determined by the coinflip (heads enters first, tails second).
  • There is no champion's advantage; if the champion is disqualified, the title will change hands.
    • If either competitor is disqualified via a run-in, the title will be temporarily stripped for a rematch between the two on the next show.
      • In this scenario, the individual running in will be suspended for two months and removed from the Open Class queue, if they are in it.
  • If an Open Class Champion becomes #1 on the ELO rankings, they will be made to relinquish the title and challenge for the Master Class Championship on its next defense.
