- This promotion was run by Malcolm Monroe.
- The first couple of years, it promoted traditional independent wrestling under the name Mid-West Championship Wrestling.
- In 1996, the company began running mostly hardcore style shows using the name Insane Championship Wrestling. However, the MWCW name would continue to be used on occasion for shows featuring the traditional style.
- In late 2000, the ICW name was dropped and a new promotion, X-treme Intense Championship Wrestling was started by Monroe's son, DBA.
