Jerry Lawler, AWA World Heavyweight Champion

Last night, I was watching an episode of Monday Night RAW. Jerry Lawler was brought into the ring by Vince McMahon and was awarded this very cheap-looking belt (not even a metal with leather but more like a big piece of soft plastic or cloth) with WWE's version of AWA logo on it. Vince started saying, "We do now own the trademarks of AWA, and QUITE FRANKLY, the King had never lost the...."

That's when ...

Question About Verne Gagne's Number of Title Reigns

I have a question that has bugged me for a few years...why is it that most AWA World Title histories list Verne Gagne as having won the AWA belt 10 times, when AWA programming, PWI and other mags, and Verne Gagne himself always referred to him being a nine-time champion?

Tim Woods, former AWA champ?

Here's a new find by Tim Hornbaker, author of the great "National Wrestling Alliance: The Untold Story of the Monopoly that Strangled Pro Wrestling" book:

In 1966, Tim Woods momentarily wins the AWA World Heavyweight Title at Omaha - 10/13/07

This is another longstanding fable in wrestling, and one that has been misreported dozens of times. The tale went that Mr. Wrestling...aka...Tim Woods dethroned "Mad Dog" Maurice Vachon and annexed the AWA Title, but was ...

AWA JUNIOR Heavyweight Title?

I have a listing with Danny Hodge as "Junior champion" from a 12/12/1964 card in St. Paul.

Seems odd because I've never heard of this title, and Hodge was not NWA World Junior Heavyweight champion at the time, having lost that particular title about a month before the 12/12/1964 card.

Any ideas? :?:

Nebraska Titles Question & World Tag Team Title Question

The Crusher lost a loser-leaves-town match to AWA champion Verne Gagne on 09/05/1964, in St. Paul. The Crusher & Dick the Bruiser were the World Tag Team champions at the time. Were they stripped of the titles, as I don't see how a guy who had to "leave town" could be allowed to still hold the championship?

Also, were the Nebraska title and Nebraska Tag Team titles officially recognized by the AWA?
