Championship History

Final Champions

UWA Light Heavyweight Championship

The UWA Light Heavyweight Championship is the secondary title in UWA Hardcore Wrestling.

Grand Prix Tournament

The Grand Prix Tournament is an eight-man tournament. The winner receives the Grand Prix championship belt for that year and is dubbed 20__ Grand Prix Champion.

The 2006 Grand Prix Tournament was a Double Header, held on October 27 and 28th and won by Sonjay Dutt. The 2008 GP also took place over the course of two nights, and featured matches which had all of UWA's singles championships on the line. As a result of this, Lionel Knight became UWA's first Triple Crown Champion. Because of UWA's hiatus during the second half of 2007, a GP tournament was never held.
