Since June 30th, 2012 the story has remained the same. Month after month, the title defenses come and go. Year after year, the chances of a title change become slim to none. It's the end of 2016, and while some pretty crazy changes have happened in ACW this year, one thing remains the same: Diaz is still the ACW Light Heavyweight Champion.
On December 16th, the latest of many challengers steps up for a chance to do what no one has been able to do for over 4 years in Travis Banks. Banks, a relative newcomer to ACW became #1 contender in October in Denton, MD. This impressive newcomer has made a name for himself in other area promotions such as 302 Pro Wrestling in Delaware before making his ACW debut and becoming the #1 contender in just a little over 3 matches in the company. Not much is known about this competitor other than the fact the he has a tall task ahead of himself when he competes in his very first ACW title opportunity on December 16th.
The champion Diaz is coming off of a successful summer and fall after winning a long standing rivalry with Pat Anthony as well as defeating Vic Ramon, AC Wolf, Ty Awesome, Joe Kerr as well as former ACW Champion Sicend. His long-standing Light Heavyweight Championship reign has shown no signs of slowing down. However, most of Diaz challengers over the last year are competitors he has had long standing histories with. (Sicend, Anthony, Illuminati, etc) Banks does not fall in to that category. The unknown can produce the unexpected. This unfamiliarity could give the challenger a bit of an advantage come December 16th.
Can Travis Banks pull off what no other competitor has been able to do for 48 straight months? The only way to find out is to be there when ACW returns to Denton, MD on Friday December 16.
