The CWA Southwestern Heavyweight Championship was a short-lived professional wrestling title defended in the United States Wrestling Association (USWA, formerly the Championship Wrestling Association, hence the CWA name) and the World Class Wrestling Association (WCWA) during their joint promotion in 1989 and 1990. The title was abandoned when the two companies split.

The CWA Southwestern Heavyweight Championship is often mistakenly listed as being part of the USWA Southern Heavyweight Championship history.
