United States Championship

One of the original three CSWA singles titles, the US Championship has undergone a convoluted history of its own. It became synonymous with Mark Windham in the CSWA's early years; so much so that when he originally retired in 1991, the title went with him and replaced by the National Championship.

In 1993, after being stripped of the National Title, Mark Windham brought back the US belt, leading to both titles being defended in the league. In 1994, the titles were combined to created the USN Championship, which lasted until the CSWA closure in Summer 1997.

When the CSWA returned in Spring 1998, the title was reverted to the original name, the United States Championship.

Footnotes on Title Histories

1.  Title histories are listed in reverse order.  For active titles, the current champion will be listed first. 

2.  Numbers in parentheses ( ) denote the number of times a wrestler has held that title.  Please note that the count restarts if the title changes name.  Example:  if Mark Windham has held both the United States and National Championships and then wins the US Title again, his entry would be noted as United States Championship (2); the National Championship is counted as distinct, even though they may be similar or eventually merged.  The same is true in the case of the UNIFIED World and CSWA World Titles.

3.  Every effort has been made to keep these as accurate as possible.  Please notify us if you come across any discrepancies.  Due to the volume of records and incidents like the July 2001 server crash, some entries may be incomplete.  In these cases, out-of-roleplay notes may accompany the entry.
