The New Jersey version of the NWA World Light Heavyweight Championship was a short-lived National Wrestling Alliance title recognized in the U.S. state of New Jersey in 1997 and 1998.

This version of the title is in no way related to the original version of the championship, defended in the Mexican professional wrestling promotion, Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), in use since the early 1950s.[1]
