THE HISTORY OF THE

XTREME WRESTLING FEDERATION

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

NOVEMBER 21st, 2001 - AUGUST 31st, 2006

 

X-Treme Wrestling Federation was founded in November of 2001 by Vince McMahon (Gary Shaw). It operated until September of 2006. Unfortunately, the title history was not maintained fully and many handler names and exact dates have been lost to time. This is the most accurate account of the events in XWF history located anywhere today.

We include this world title history as complete and uncut as possible out of respect for the championship, the promotion, and the competitors who worked to make it what it was.

Harry Smith immediately declared that the XWF World Heavyweight Championship was even below his standards and immediately vacated the championship

Interim owner of Solid Gold Wrestling, Jim Cornette immediately came out and dusted off the XWF World Heavyweight Championship, declaring that it would be a shame for a good title lineage to go to waste.
