History of Championship

Like many UWA championships, this championship has floated around the world since the promotion's demise. It was a Puerto Rico based championship for some years. On January 30, 2014, it was announced that Japanese promotion Tenryu Project acquired the rights of the belt. The championship transferred to Pro Wrestling Heat Up after Tenryu Project closed, and is most recently seen in FREEDOMS.
