The USWA Unified World Heavyweight Championship is a professional wrestling championship formed in 1988 when Jerry Lawler defeated Curt Hennig on May 9, 1988 for the American Wrestling Association World Heavyweight title and defeated Kerry Von Erich on December 13, 1988 for the World Class Championship Wrestling World Heavyweight Title and unified the titles together.

The title was primarily recognized by and defended in the United States Wrestling Association until 1997, when the company ceased operations.

This was the first Unified World Heavyweight championship but the American Wrestling Association, however, stopped recognizing Lawler as their champion not long after the unification, meaning that the title could not be considered a unified title.
