About the Mid-Atlantic Heritage Championship

The Mid-Atlantic Heritage Championship pays tribute to the old Mid-Atlantic territory of the 1970s-1980s, the men who fought for that regional title, and the fans who help keep the memories of those days alive. 

The championship, established in 2005, is represented by a custom made replica of the 3rd version of Mid-Atlantic title belt worn by title holders from 1977-1985. The belt was crafted by Dave Millican, who along with Reggie Parks makes many of the belts worn by most major wrestling and fighting organizations today. 

The Heritage Championship was created by the Mid-Atlantic Gateway, the number one internet resource on Mid-Atlantic Wrestling history, and represents the largest gathering of Mid-Atlantic Wrestling fans in the world.
