The Pacific Wrestling Federation (PWF) United States Heavyweight Championship is a former secundary championship defended in All Japan Pro Wrestling.


The title was established in 1970 when The Destroyer, who held the Hawaii version of the NWA North American Heavyweight Championship, had the belt which would become the PWF United States Championship made to replace the original North American title belt, which had fallen into disrepair. The Destroyer then embarked on a world tour, on which he was billed as United States Champion. The title ended up becoming an official PWF title later on, and was retired in 1979 when Destroyer decided to return to the United States.
