HNWF originated from MCWA (Mercer-Chaffinch Wrestling Association), which was developed in 1989 by Greg Mercer and Benson Chaffinch. Stars of the early days include "Amazing" Arnold Pearson, the Sorensen wrestling family - even the two founders wrestled at times! Then, in 1997, Mercer and Chaffinch started having different opinions on how the company should run. Chaffinch was bored with the company's current state and wanted to make the company more extreme, based on the popularity of ECW at the time. They decided to settle their dispute in a match. Whoever won the match would fire the other. Eventually, all hell broke loose when the entire roster started picking favorites and assisted them. What ended up happening was Chaffinch and all of his supporters quit the company and formed a new one called 5CW. Eventually, MCWA went under the following year due to financial woes. However, Mercer formed a new company, Action Pro Wrestling, in 1999 to battle with 5CW. The conflict lasted 8 years until 2005, when Action Pro finally won out and bought the company. Chaffinch had his revenge though, when hired thugs ran him out of the country due to money woes with a gang leader. This put Chaffinch in charge of the company, and he renamed the company HNWF. Then, Chaffinch got bored with wrestling and left the company, leaving the ownership to his subordinates.


HNWF shut down in 2019 due to many of their superstars tragically dying and being unable to pay off the lawsuits made by the families of the wrestlers. At one show, Mason McLaren smashed Kidd Clutch's teeth out with a chair and went on a lengthy unscripted rant about the company. He was fired from HNWF the next day, and Mason was arrested with charges of assault that day as well.
