The XPW World Heavyweight Championship was the top professional wrestling title in the Xtreme Pro Wrestling promotion.

XPW's first World Champion was crowned in a Battle Royal match that saw Damien Steele and John Kronus be the last two remaining wrestlers compete in a single fall match for the title. Steele would win this match to become champion.
