#AndNEW: Darius Carter Secures 4th Title, Wins Pro Wrestling Magic Championship

Darius Carter Wins PWM Championship

He’s a master manipulator who always does what’s best for business. After all, he’s the leader of the Best Business Bureau, one of indie wrestling’s most cunning factions. And on Saturday night at Pro Wrestling Magic‘s People Mover, Darius Carter added his fourth singles title by defeating Erica Leigh to become the new Pro Wrestling Magic Champion. To add more salt to the wounds, Carter wasn’t even supposed to be in the title match, which was originally between Erica Leigh and Billy Dixon (another of Carter’s longtime rivals the past year). But Carter cashed in his Key to the Kingdom, won at the end of 2021, taking out Dixon and then scoring the quick pinfall over Erica Leigh.

With the win, Darius Carter now holds four singles titles in the U.S. indies, adding his PWM Championship to a collection that also currently contains the BriiCombination Championship (BCW) Heavyweight title (at 1,171 days) from New York City, Catalyst Wrestling (formerly Capitol Wrestling) Championship in New Jersey (79 days), and NYC’s Warriors of Wrestling (WOW) Championship (on his third reign at 50 days). It also returns him to the top of the pecking order in PWM, after holding the PWM Dark Arts Championship for 239-days until recently losing it last September. But now he holds the top belt in PWM, defeating his longtime rival Erica Leigh and ending her reign at 273-days. Leigh actually defeated Carter for the title last April at PWM Red Letter Day in the finals of the Chad Adams Classic Tournament to crown a new champion after it had been vacated by the “Meadowlands Monster” Bruno.

A near 13-year veteran of the squared circle, Darius Carter has been one of the Northeast’s most underrated talents of the past decade, where “The All-Father” made a name for himself in Beyond Wrestling for nearly a decade before becoming the Crown Prince of the Metropolitan area collecting titles, while also competing for the likes of Battle Club Pro, Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), American Championship Entertainment (ACE), Hardcore Hustle Organization (H2O), Pro Wrestling VIBE, and PolyAm Cult events.

Now that he’s finally the PWM Champion, expect Darius Carter to rule the Kingdom with an iron fist, undoubtedly planning on expanding his territory beyond the Northeast and beyond. And don’t expect either Erica Leigh – or Billy Dixon – to forget this night.
