The AWA Superstars United States Championship was a secondary championship in the AWA Superstars of Wrestling promotion, now Wrestling Superstars Live.
The AWA Superstars United States Championship was split from the Zero1-Max United States Openweight Championship after Pro Wrestling Zero1 left AWA Superstars of Wrestling in December 2007. AWA Superstars of Wrestling pulled current champion Ricky Landell from Zero1 and awarded him the championship.
On March 29, 2008, reigning Ricky Landell defeated Keith Walker for the WSL Fighting World Championship, at which point the AWA Superstars of Wrestling United States title was abandoned.

Famous quotes containing the words states, united and/or wrestling:
“We cannot feel strongly toward the totally unlike because it is unimaginable, unrealizable; nor yet toward the wholly like because it is staleidentity must always be dull company. The power of other natures over us lies in a stimulating difference which causes excitement and opens communication, in ideas similar to our own but not identical, in states of mind attainable but not actual.”
—Charles Horton Cooley (18641929)
“Emblem: the carapace of the great crowned snail is painted with all the flags of the United Nations.”
—Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
“There are people who think that wrestling is an ignoble sport. Wrestling is not sport, it is a spectacle, and it is no more ignoble to attend a wrestled performance of suffering than a performance of the sorrows of Arnolphe or Andromaque.”
—Roland Barthes (19151980)
