The GBYWN Gulf Coast Heavyweight Championship is a backyard wrestling regional championship assigned as one of various other championships in backyard wrestling alliance, Global Backyard Wrestling Nation (GBYWN). The championship is assigned for contention within the "Gulf Coast Territory" assembled by GBYWN, the U.S states known as Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas and, Florida




The title was introduced the week before TKO's Doomsday 2010. Jeff James, who was in the midst of a heated rivalry with former partner Matt Craven (formerly known as The Reaper), realized that the Gulf Coast territory was uncontested, and instantly sought to claim the title. After numerous backstage discussions, the title was sanctioned, but needed to be contested in a match. Jeff James unofficially crowned himself the champion and with utter confidence put it on the line. After a grueling match, Jeff defeated the Reaper and became the first official GBYWN Gulf Coast Heavyweight Champion
