The LWL World Heavyweight Championship is a professional wrestling world heavyweight championship created and promoted by War Hawks Entertainment Inc. on the LWL brand. It is one of three world titles for WHEI's brands alongside the WHEI Universal Championship on the Raw brand and the WHEI WWE Championship on the SmackDown brand. The current champion is AJ Styles in his first reign.

The title was created in the very first season of the War Hawks Unvierse Mode and has served as the world title for the brand in all 3 seasons. Sherania wanted to make her brand unique and give fans an alternative to the two primary brands. Thus this championship looked different from the other two world championships and has done so since the beginning.

Origin Edit

Originally created when the War Hawks first decided to start doing universe mode on twitch, the championship has never changed brands in the 3 seasons it has been an active championship. In season 2 despite the other two world titles looking almost exactly alike, Shernia opted to keep hers looking different in order to maintain her unique feel for her brand. This was tweeked slightly in season 3 when she added customizable side plates to the title.

Championship Belt design Edit

Season 1 Edit

The title has had a bit of a strange history with its design. Originally the championship had a centerplate that resembled a castle tower. With LWL in black with a light blue background, as well as a globe in the center below it, and World Champion below that. For the side plates she went with the side plates that matched the WWE Championship without the customizable side plates, a globe replacing it instead. The strap was also white with snakeskin material. This was done because at the time they did not have an "official" logo for the brand and thus could not use it on the titles.

Season 2 Edit

In season 2 they got an official logo for LWL and began using it in everything to do with the brand. The design of the title was largely unchanged in season 2 save for the inclusion of the new logo.

Season 3 Edit

For season 3, for the first time ever, the championship's design was altered. This time with the strap being black, with lightning across it. The center plate was changed to resemble the Intercontinental Championship, with a gold trident in the middle. In the spot where the WWE logo would normally be on a black background the title had the default LWL logo on a green background. Under that were the words Leathal Wrestling Legends World Heavyweight Champion over a large globe.

Coming in line with the designs of the other two world titles for the first time the sideplates are now removable, with the default plates bearing the LWL logo over a green background rather than the WWE logo over a red globe. The sideplates, like the other two world championships, can be replaced with the champion's logo in lieu of a nameplate.
