The championship was created in 2003 through a working relationship between XPW and the FWA. This was to be the flagship of the working relationship as the title would be defended throughout Europe and would appear on both promotions respective television programmes, however the title's primary home was to be the FWA. Though it was defended in the FWA, the belt itself was never actually seen, due to XPW folding shortly after the tournament final that determined the first champion.[1] Jonny Storm, the winner of the tournament continued to defend the belt which was supposedly in the briefcase he carried with him around the world until January 2005 when Storm officially vacated the title.
