MEWF Heavyweight Championship

The Mid-Eastern Wrestling Federation (MEWF) Heavyweight Championship is the highest ranking singles title in the Mid-Eastern Wrestling Federation, one of three in the promotion.

The title was created when Ricky Blues defeated Agent Orange at an event held in Odenton, Maryland on January 18, 1992.[1] In 2003, the title was merged with the MCW Heavyweight Championship when Maryland Championship Wrestling held its final show as an interpromtional event with the Mid-Eastern Wrestling Federation creating the Mid-Eastern Wrestling Federation Unified Heavyweight Championship on July 16, 2003.[2][3]

The championship has been known as:

  • MEWF Heavyweight Championship (1991–2003)
  • MEWF Unified Heavyweight Championship (2003–2004)

The heavyweight title was later revived after Maryland Championship Wrestling began promoting events in the Maryland-area in 2007.

There have been a total of 30 recognized champions who have had a combined 45 official reigns.
