The CMLL World Heavyweight Championship (Campeonato Mundial de Peso Completo del CMLL in Spanish) is a professional wrestling world heavyweight championship promoted by Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre and has been in existence since June 9, 1991. Unlike other world titles in other promotions, this championship is not the main title in CMLL due to the greater number of competitors in lower weight divisions.

Championship rules

As the Championship is designated as a heavyweight title, the Championship can only officially be competed for by wrestlers weighing at least 105 kg (231 lb). The rule is not strictly adhered to as several champions have been under the weight limit, including former champion Héctor Garza. While the Heavyweight title is traditionally considered the most prestigious weight division in professional wrestling, CMLL places more emphasis on the lower weight divisions. As such, the CMLL World Heavyweight Title is not considered the top CMLL Championship.

Current Champion

Marco Corleone is the champion. He defeated El Terrible on June 6, 2017 in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara in a Torneo Cibernetico to decide the new champion with the final 2 competitors facing off in a one fall match. Other participants in the Torneo Cibernetico were Rush, Mr. Niebla, Euforia, Gran Guerrero, Kraneo, Comandante Pierroth, Dragon Rojo, Jr., Rey Bucanero. Title was vacant after the previous champion Maximo was fired from CMLL on May 22, 2017.
