The National Wrestling Association was an off-shoot of the National Boxing Association, formed to sanction professional wrestling. This NWA is not the same organization as the National Wrestling Alliance, which was formed in 1948.

The National Wrestling Association recognized a World Heavyweight Champion from 1929 until 1949, at which time then-champion Lou Thesz was chosen as the National Wrestling Alliance's World Heavyweight Champion (this title had been vacated when champion Orville Brown had sustained career-ending injuries in an automobile accident).
