Banned4Life was the first pay-per-view event produced by New Frontier Wrestling. It aired on June 6, 2001 from the Paul E. Tsongas Arena in Lowell Massachusettes. The event is not only noteworthy for being NFW's first pay-per view, but also because the title originated because NFW was actually banned for life from the state of Maryland after state fire marshalls inspecting their business practices witnessed a wrestler getting lit on fire and thrown inside a trashcan.
