At that time, Ryan Stevens carried a reign that eventually lasted 16 episodic events as the longest unrivalled reign. During season 4 in the return of Spardis after failing to achieve the XBW Title in a match against Stevens in his trip to XBW in season 3, he officially won it at episode 19 Hotter Than Hell from Stevens, marking the first time an outsider was crowned champion as he attempted to take it back to TWFX located in Minnesota. However, he was stopped by Reaper, who cashed in his Nemesis Memorial Cup Battle Royal opportunity achieved at In Memory Of that opportuned him to gun after any title of his choosings anywhere and at any time. In season 5, Deathwarrent won the championship at Total Chaos to possess the most reigns.
