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 ...

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' ...

There have been many polls on "best champs" recently. Those polls usually have not much to do with championship lineages but rather about the wrestlers. Besides, most of those polls don't even include the significant champs from the pre-Hulkamania era. I moved those polls to "Everything else" for now, but please also remember that polls are not allowed in "Everything else".
This means that there wouldn't be many polls that would fit this "Pro-Wrestling Title ...

This debate has popped up from time to time, so I figured I'll just see what everyone here thinks. When it comes to maybe two World titles being unified, then yes, I
say either carry both belts out or create a new belt representing the
Unified championship. However, when it comes to the unification of
secondary titles, I agree with the current practice in North American

I have a question that has been burning inside my head a while...
After Brian Pillman's untimely death, a writer for TV guide attacked the WWF. To respond to that, the WWF used the world's biggest loudspeaker, Jim Cornette, to respond. In his beautifully mastered tirade Cornette started tracing back the title history of wrestling and made a startling link to Abraham Lincoln. Can anyone verify this or point me in a direction to verify ...
