The title has been vacated five times, three times due to injury (including the current vacancy) and twice due to wrestlers leaving the company. Only once has the vacancy been filled by a tournament, and it was an unusual tournament in that it was based on match victories rather than eliminations. Only Sheik El Zacqwi and Slikk Steev won both of their matches to contest the final that the Sheik won.
Four wrestlers who won this title went on to win the NAW Heavyweight Championship - Zacqwi, Ryan O'Hare, Jarek Craven and Jake Lindo. Two wrestlers won this title after having won the heavyweight title - Iron Horse Morrison and Josh Shooter. No wrestler has ever won this title more than once.
