The AWA African Cruiserweight Championship is a professional wrestling cruiserweight championship owned by the Africa Wrestling Alliance (AWA) promotion. The title was created and debuted on December 11, 2004 at a two-hour live television special, AWF on E Slam Series Final, when Johnny Palazzio won it in a battle royal.

Title reigns are determined either by professional wrestling matches between wrestlers involved in pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines, or by scripted circumstances. Wrestlers are portrayed as either villains or heroes as they follow a series of tension-building events, which culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches for the championship. Title changes happen at live events, which are usually released on DVD.
