USWA Unified World Title

Note: The USWA was not created until August 1989 and that was just a name change for the Dallas end of the promotion. On the December 30, 1989 Memphis TV show it was announced that the Memphis based CWA had merged with the USWA. Up to that point, the title was just referred to as the Unified World Title.
