Lightweight Championship

The World Wrestling Federation (WWF) Light Heavyweight Championship was a professional wrestling championship. The title was challenged by light heavyweights at a maximum weight of 215 lbs (before deactivation the weight limit was changed to 220Ibs). The title was introduced in 1997, with the first champion being Taka Michinoku after winning a tournament.

In 2001, the Light Heavyweight Championship was retired in favor of the WWF Cruiserweight Championship (later WWE Cruiserweight Championship), where it would be defended until September 2007.
