WWWF USA Heavyweight Championship

[box type=”info” align=”alignleft” ]The WWWF USA Heavyweight Championship (often just referred to as the WWWF United States Championship) was a singles title used sporadically in the World Wide Wrestling Federation between 1963 and 1977. During the variable periods in which it was used, the title served as the promotion’s secondary singles championship to the WWWF World Heavyweight Championship.
After the title was retired for good, it was replaced with the WWF North American Heavyweight Championship as the promotion’s secondary title. This title has no connection to the current WWE United States Championship, the lineage of which dates back to the NWA/WCW United States Heavyweight Championship originally created in 1975 in Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling.
