How can one fed 'revive' another's title?

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. How exactly can they do this? Do they need the physical belt to do it? Do they ask permission of the previous company's operators? I'm just asking to see how these promotions are able to 'revive' titles. Any response will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Stu Hart (1915 - 2003)

Stu Hart passed away this afternoon due to complications from pneumonia at the
age of 88.

Stu was not only a father of two of the greatest wrestlers of this era, Bret and Owen, but also one of the greatest promoters from Canada.

Rest in peace, Stu.

Phantom title switches

Benny,

'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, ...

Womens Title

Not quite sure where to post this, being that the title was apparently first NWA, then WWF, but this seems as good of a place as any...

I notice on the title histories here quite a handful of title changes from the time Moolah first won to when Wendy Richter won it...yet the PWI almanac lists Moolah as having a 27-year uninterrupted run, and I'm also pretty sure I've heard comments on WWE TV to ...

NWA, WCW, and RAW World Heavyweight Titles

Just trying to organize something.

Since there are multiple threads for the relationship between NWA, WCW, and RAW world heavyweight titles, let's just discuss about it on this thread rather than posting on more than one threads.

These are the related threads. Some of them will be closed, and the replies should be posted on this thread.

RAW's championship, a new championship!

World Title thoughts (Bloody long!)

Many posters have made good points in relation to the below previous discussion on World Title status, but I just thought I'd through in my 2 cents about what is out there that may be called a World Heavyweight Title. For this I'll examine the WWE, WCW, NWA, ECW, AWA, IWGP, and the Triple Crown.

First, the defunct ones

AWA - I'll admit my knowledge of how the AWA title claimed world championship status is ...

World Title Lineage

After Eric Bichoff intorduced Raw's "World Heavyweight Title", I took up the task of attempting to trace the lineage of the title, actual and fictional. I looked through the title histories on this site and others to see if I can come up with something that resembles a true lineage of the title since the 18th century, through to modern times. I came up with an extensive written article, and a rough diagram, (<a href='http://idmt13.mailru.com/diagram.gif' ...
