The National Wrestling Association was an offshoot of the National Boxing Association, formed to sanction professional wrestling. This NWA is not the same organization as the National Wrestling Alliance, which was formed in 1948.

The National Wrestling Association recognized a World Heavyweight Champion from 1929 to 1949, when champion Lou Thesz unified its version of the World Heavyweight Championship with the National Wrestling Alliance's World Heavyweight Championship.
