The ZERO-ONE United States Heavyweight Championship is a professional wrestling title in Japanese promotion Pro Wrestling ZERO1. It was created on January 6 2003, with Steve Corino defeating Masato Tanaka. In addition to Japan, it has recently been frequently defended in various independent companies in the United States.

The title was created at a time when the company was known as Pro Wrestling ZERO-ONE, originally naming it the ZERO-ONE United States Heavyweight Championship; on July 4 2004, following ZERO-ONE joining the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), the title was renamed the NWA/ZERO-ONE United States Heavyweight Championship. On October 26 2004, ZERO-ONE left the NWA, removing its initials from the title and renaming it the ZERO-ONE United States Openweight Championship. When the promotion's name was changed to ZERO1-MAX in 2005, the championship title followed. On March 25 2007, the title again switched its name, this time to the ZERO1-MAX International Championship; however, on June 13 2007, the International title was apparently stricken from the record, and was reverted back to the US title.cite web |url=http://zerooneusa.com/title_us.shtml |title=ZERO-ONE United States Heavyweight Championship official title history |accessdate=2008-04-20 |publisher=ZEROONEUSA.com ] On April 12 2008, it was renamed back to its original title by Steve Corino, in honor of ZERO1-MAX's late founder Shinya Hashimoto. There have been a total of 11 recognized champions who have had a combined 16 official reigns.

The championship has been known as:
*ZERO-ONE United States Heavyweight Championship
(January 6 2003 – July 9 2004; April 12 2008 – Present)
*NWA/ZERO-ONE United States Heavyweight Championship
(July 9 2004 – October 31 2004)
*ZERO-ONE United States Openweight Championship
(October 31 2004 – 2005)
*ZERO1-MAX United States Openweight Championship
(2005 – April 12 2008)
