The IPWA Heavyweight Championship is the only professional wrestling championship in the Israeli Pro Wrestling Association promotion. At the end of 2002, Israeli professional wrestler Gery Roif announced a match between himself and Joey "The Moalm" Tylec to determine the first IPWA Heavyweight Champion.
From the IPWA Heavyweight Championship's inception in 2003, until it closed in 2014, there were twelve different title holders, combining for sixteen championship reigns. The title was retired in February 2008 when the promotion closed but in May 2009 the title became active once again with the promotion relaunching.
