NWA rulebook

I remember finding a web site where there was a scan of the NWA rulebook (concerning match rules). Do any of you have anything related to that? (The rulebook itself, link to the site I'm talking about, or anything regarding the NWA rules.)

Thanks for any info.

Southwest Championship Wrestling - NWA Member?

I recently watched a tape of Kerry & David Von Erich vs Karl Krupp & Gene Yates. The show was Southwest Championship Wrestling, but Bronco Lubich was the referee and had an NWA patch on his shirt.

Does anyone know if San Antonio was an NWA member at one time? I'm guessing this match is from the late 70's as both Von Erichs were very young. Also, if anyone else has seen this match, where ...

Why was the NWA not in Europe?

Why was the NWA not in Europe? Until recently, and Hammerlock UK joined, there does not seem to be a promoter in Europe that was a member of the NWA. Why was that?

US Title

I'm confused about the NWA US title.......the history here reads that Harley Race is the first champion, yet gives it an asterisk, which would indicate that it was fictitious. Anyone have the exact story on that one?

Kansas NWA in 42? Splinter Title?

OK. I know about the NWAssociation and NWAlliance World Titles. I'm beginning to learn about the NWA that existed in Iowa with Orville Brown as champ and Pinky George running the show before the NWAlliance was formed as we know it today. However, as I was doing wrestling research at the Topeka library for 1942, I found another NWA Title mentioned!

It sounds like Roy Dunn was champion and lost to Edward Virag in Wichita, ...
