Hamma Fist Title

The Hamma Fist Championship, having been recognized under many names in its short existence, was a symbol of the Florida wrestling fans, and that its champion was someone with whom the fans held in the highest regard as their champion. Despite being held by a veritable who’s who of Florida wrestling talent, the belt was officially retired in late 2012, and the late Justin “Ryze” Honeycutt the final champion was posthumously declared the final Hamma Fist Champion. From its retirement saw the birth of the Vintage Florida People’s Championship, which carries on the concepts and honor of representing the Florida wrestling fan community.

The Hamma Fist Championship was formerly one half of I Believe In Wrestling’s Unified Florida Heavyweight Championship, and QT Marshall’s International Grand Slam Championship. It has also been known as the THF Championship, the THF Florida People’s Championship, and the Florida People’s Championship (sans THF branding).
