WCCW Texas Heavyweight Championship
The NWA Texas Heavyweight Championship is a professional wrestling title that has existed since the 1930s. Though its exact date of creation isn't known, it is among the oldest championships used in professional wrestling today. The title has used a variety of different names over the years, which consists of initial changes to represent the various companies that have controlled the title at different times. Originally, it was simply known as the Texas Heavyweight Championship until its name was changed after the formation of the National Wrestling Alliance in 1948. For most of the title's existence, at least until the early 1990s, it was defended almost exclusively within the Dallas, Ft. Worth, Houston and San Antonio areas of Texas. From the 30s to the mid-1960s, these cities and the surrounding towns were within the territory operated by Ed McLemore, which was known simply as Southwest Sports, Inc. at the time. After McLemore's death, the territory came under the control of Fritz Von Erich and was renamed simply Big Time Wrestling. However, the promotion would be renamed World Class Championship Wrestling in the early 1980s, which is the name the territory is best remembered under today. The championship remained an NWA affiliated title until February 1986.
In 1986, WCCW withdrew from the NWA and changed their name to "World Class Wrestling Association", while still promoting under the WCCW banner. The title became the WCWA Texas Heavyweight Championship at this time. In 1991, the title became the USWA Texas Heavyweight Championship in the United States Wrestling Association when WCCW merged into the USWA.
It renamed the WCWA Texas Heavyweight Championship in 1993 (after USWA and WCWA split) and became the GWF Texas Heavyweight Championship in the Global Wrestling Federation in 1994. It reverted to the WCCW Texas Title in 1997 and was briefly the CWA Texas Heavyweight Championship in 1997. It then reverted to its original name when awarded to NWA Southwest, where it is still used today.
