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 changed course. The championships were referred to as NWA World Historic Championships.

The name further changed to only "World Historic Middleweight Championship" in early 2022; company officials just stopped using the NWA name with no explanation. The championship lineage itself did not change. (We're leaving the name of the page as is for the time being.)

Averno made the first Historic defense of any of the three renamed belts, keeping his title over Charly Manson. It was Manson's only title chance in his short CMLL stay. Averno also turned back Mascara Dorada in the culmination of their early 2011 feud.
