Current Champion

Volador Jr., 7th/63st champion

Volador Jr. won the championship back on August 1st, 2014 from La Sombra in Arena Mexico. This was a rematch from June, where Sombra had won the title from Volador.

History of Championship

On August 12, 2010, CMLL announced a change with the NWA group of championships. The current physical title belts were all retired, replaced by newly belts with a different design. The old belts are now part of CMLL's mobile museum, though copies of them have turned up elsewhere.

CMLL referred to the new championships as the CMLL Historic Championships and said the former NWA champions would be the first champions of the new belts. Outside not getting the physical belt back, that appeared to satisfy the NWA's complaints about using their trademarks. However, within weeks of that press conference, CMLL had changed course. The championships were referred to as NWA World Historic Championships. It's even been casually referred to by it's old name by the promotion, but is now considered a separate championship with NWA Mexico reviving the original named championship.

Mephisto made a few defenses of his championship over his 20 month reign. He feud with Hijo del Fantasma during the late stages, retaining his championship via an illicit brass knuckles punch. The two were expected to rematch down the line. Meanwhile, Mephisto, Averno and Ephesto challenged Generacion Dorada for their CMLL World Trios Championship in early March of 2011. The champions retained, Mephisto taking the final fall to previous champion Sombra. Sombra immediately challenged for a singles title match, and Mephisto agreed the following week. The two had a reported thirty minute match, with Sombra regaining the championship.
