I recenly obtained a copy of the May 1953 issue of "N.W.A. Official Wrestling" magzine. The magazine includes the editorial by president Sam Muchnick. Toots Mondt is listed as the president & treasurer of the magazine while (probably) all the NWA members are listed as the professional consultnants.
The cover has these wrestlers as the holder of the respective world title:
- Lou Thesz, heavyweight
- Danny McShain, junior heavyweight
- Gypsy Joe, light heavyweight ...

I was told recently, that the NWA BOD started to reconise the NWA World Light Heavyweight Title when Gypsy Joe won it in 1952. Can anyone confirm this?
Also, the same source told me that the BOD dropped reconition after 1958 when EMLL would not listen to them. Does anyone know if this is true?

I found this interpretation of NWA Title history to be very interesting. This site counts the WCW International Title as the real NWA Title. This idea, while in opposition to official NWA records, makes sense in my opinion because
a) the belt still had the heritage of the NWA Title and
B) because there was no other NWA Champion during that time period.
In fact, this site's version of events leaves the ...

Someone please give me some help, is the number of NWA champions start at George Hackenschmidt? If that is the case then the NWA should be coming up on 100 real soon, since if I counted correctly Jarrett is 97. Maybe the NWA should do something special but thats just me.
