The NWA Texas Heavyweight Championship was a title that was first created in the 1930s and has had several different names. It was the NWA Texas Heavyweight Championship from the 1930s until 1966. It was then billed as the WCCW Texas Heavyweight Championship from 1966 until 1986. During that same time period, the title was still called the NWA Texas Title on occasions because World Class Championship Wrestling was a member of the NWA.
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 reverted to the WCCW Texas Heavyweight Championship in 1993 (after USWA and WCCW 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. In 1998 it then reverted to its original name when awarded to NWA Southwest.
