Shawn Tryant 1 October 8, 2003 Considered by many as the greatest HiWF Champion ever, Shawn Tryant's first and only reign is the longest in HiWF history. It lasted an unprecedented 37 events.
Wolverine 1 January 25, 2004 DiWF legend Wolverine ended the streak of Tryant and captured his only HiWF World title at the Gauntlet PPV. His reign would only last for one match though.
Michael Harliquin 1 January 25, 2004 Harliquin's fist and only reign was the finals of the HiWF Gauntlet tournament. Considered to be the next great thing of the HiWF, he dethroned legendary Wolverine to walk away with the World title.
Unforgiven Soul 1 February 15, 2004 Soul's first reign as World champion was also his 100th match, the first to reach that mark. He was considered an upset victor in this battle at the first and only St. Valentine's Day Massacre PPV. This is also the third longest reign in HiWF history, 22 events.
Rayne 1 April 26, 2004 The only female wrestler to ever capture the gold. She defeated Soul at the Excessive Force Pay-Per-View, but would eventually depart from the company due to personal issues, therefore making the title once again Vacant.

It was the second time the title changed hands at the "Granddaddy of the All". The title was shortly after declared Vacant once again when Himmler destroyed the original version of the title.
Kevin Powers 1 October 24, 2004 More of a falsified title reign. Never actually defeating anyone for the title, Powers' reign is considered a mockery of being an actual champion. Seen as a failure as champion, his only reign was short lived.

Cherokee Warrior 2 July 24, 2005 Warrior ended the longest reign in HiWF history with a shocking upset. The victory was at the Michael Williams Memorial Show.

Josef Himmler 2 July 2, 2006 Himmler became a two time champion at the Jealousy PPV after defeating Unforgiven Soul. His second reign would actually last this time, as he desired the title rather than wanting to destroy it.
Legacy 2 September 24, 2006 In the Main Event of WrestleFest V the long awaited match that had been building for almost an entire year, Legacy took on Josef Himmler in the Main Event.
Tj Jones 1 October 12, 2006 Tj Jones' only reign, the longest awaited as far as match count goes, was seen as a break through event. He took home the World gold on an episode of Turmoil.
