The Vendetta Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Championship was the primary professional wrestling championship contested for in the independent professional wrestling promotion Vendetta Pro Wrestling. The championship is generally contested in professional wrestling matches, in which participants execute scripted finishes rather than contend in direct competition. The other professional wrestling championships in Vendetta Pro are the Vendetta Pro Wrestling Tri-Force Championship which is a secondary title, the Vendetta Pro Wrestling Underground Championship which—with the exception of the tournament final to crown the first Champion—is only defended at Vendetta Pro Underground events, and the Vendetta Pro Wrestling Tag-Team Championship.


The title was created shortly before Vendetta Pro's first event, which was held on July 11, 2009 in Santa Maria, California. The first champion, "Sexy" Sean Casey, won a Battle Royal that night to become Champion.

Since the title's inception, it's been held by former WWE superstars Chavo Guerrero, Jr. and Chris Masters. In 2012, Chavo Guerrero, Jr. held the Vendetta Pro Heavyweight title while simultaneously holding the TNA World Tag Team Championship. The title became vacant after El Hijo de Rey Misterio was unable to return to the United States to defend his title. Chavo defeated Joey Ryan for the vacant title. The two would later go on to meet in TNA for the TNA Tag titles. As Misterio still had the original Premier title belt in Mexico, Vendetta Pro used a substitute belt crafted by Top Rope Belts until a new Premier belt could be delivered. Guerrero would hold that belt for his full reign as Champion until losing it to Chris Masters at Terror Rising 2012. Masters would then be awarded the new belt which was identical to Vendetta Pro's original belt. Masters would defend the title in promotions across the United States, as well as in Canada, Mexico and parts of Europe. This being the case, although meeting a number of qualifications for it (not to mention, the belt reading "World Wrestling Champion"), Vendetta Pro doesn't promote the title as being a "World" class Championship.
