The EAW Answers World Championship is a professional wrestling world championship in Elite Answers Wrestling (EAW). It is currently part of the Showdown brand and is one of the three major championships, complimenting the EAW World Championship on Voltage and the EAW World Heavyweight Championship on Dynasty. It was first established in January 2011 when Extreme Answers Wrestling expanded to three brands.


The Answers World Championship was established as the World Championship of the then-newly introduced brand, Voltage, to act as an equivalent to Dynasty's EAW Championship and Showdown's EAW World Heavyweight Championship. The Answers World Champions debuted as the premier world championship for the Voltage roster. The first Pain for Pride match that the Answers World Championship was in was at Pain 4 Pride when Lethal Consequences won the championship against Y2Impact and Ashten Cross in a Triple Threat match. After the EAW Champion and Answers World Champion were drafted to one another's brand, the title became the top championship on the Dynasty brand. During this time, the title was brought back to the stage of Pain for Pride once again with Prince of Phenomenal winning the title from Alexander Da Vinci, and Liam Catterson being the first to retain the belt as he defended against Johnny Ventura. Drastik would nearly bring the end to the championship by departing from EAW with it and the Interwire Championship after winning the vacated title at House of Glass. The title would soon be resurrected as it would be competed for in a battle royal where the first champion, Y2Impact, would claim his record-setting third reign.


The inaugural champion was Y2Impact when he was able to defeat George Copeland at Reasonable Doubt. There have been thirty-one different official champions, with Y2Impact & Mr. DEDEDE having the most reigns with three individual reigns. The longest reigning Answers World Champion is Theron Nikolas, who held the championship for approximately eight months exactly (between Operation: Doomsday and EAW Pain for Pride XII). The shortest reigning Answers World Champion was Drastik who held the championship for less than a day as he left with the titles and the titles were retired that night. The current champion is Jack Ripley in his first reign. He won Showdown's Extreme Elimination Chamber at Road to Redemption.
