NWA Ohio Valley Light Heavyweight Championship

The Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) Light Heavyweight Championship, was a title contested in Ohio Valley Wrestling; the title was created in February 9, 1999 and was retired in March 1, 2001 due to the company withdrawing its membership from the NWA in 2000 and becoming one of the first developmental territory's for World Wrestling Federation (now WWE). The title was declared retired, meaning that the OVW Light Heavyweight Championship is now being represented by a trash can; the final champion was Chris Micheals, who defeated the former champion Sean Casey at the OVW TV Tapings to win the title.
