UNIFIED World Heavyweight Championship

The UNIFIED World Championship is an amalgam of over 40 titles, starting with the CSWA World Championship. The CSWA World Title served as the company's first "big gold belt" from 1988 until it was merged as part of the EN Superleague Title in 1992.

With the industry move to superleagues/interfeds, the question of "who's the best" became even larger. The CSWA Unified Title pulled together various superleague and individual World Titles. The question was finally settled in 1993 when the CSWA Unified Title was merged with still more league titles as companies from around the world sent their top champions to compete in the IRONMAN of CHAMPIONS. The UNIFIED World Championship became the true benchmark in the sport, not only representing the CSWA, but traveling a circuit and facing all comers.

Months after the CSWA closed in mid-1997 (in-roleplay due to Merritt's jail time; out-of-of-roleplay due to CS working to start, the UNIFIED Title became defunct and was retired. When the CSWA returned in the spring of 1998, it was with the CSWA World Title once again at the forefront.

The UNIFIED World Championship was revived in 2005 when a tournament was held inviting preeminent champions from around the world to compete.

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.
