I'm told that in Korea, there's a fed that 'revived' the WWA (Los Angeles) World Heavyweight Championship in 2000. More recently, NJPW 'revived' the old NWF World Heavyweight Title.

Rest in peace, Stu.

'Phantom' title switches (matches that never really happened) have been around for as long as there has been 'worked' matches. A classic example comes immediately to mind: May 1987 - Rick Rude & Manny Fernandez hold the NWA tag belts, when Rude jumps unannounced to the WWF. Scrambling, the NWA digs up up an old tape of the Rock & Roll Express defeating Rude & Fernandez in a non-title bout MONTHS earlier in SC, ...
