The British Heavyweight title was the only UK title to suffer from any serious disputes, by and large titles have remained undisputed since the aftermath of the Mountevans Committee in 1947.
In 1958, Joint Promotions, sick of Bert Assirati's tendency to refuse to obey orders, shoot on and destroy opponents and generally act as a nucleus of lockeroom discontent, stripped him of the title and sacked him as champion.
Assirati continued to claim the title ...

Wrestling Title Histories only lists few titles for France, recognized by FCLA, FCLP, and FFLP. I don't even know what these abbr. stand for.
I remember reading an article on "Wrestling Revue" magazine back in mid-80s with mentions of the current champs in France, but I lost the magazine. :(
Anyone have more info on France?

Recently The Wrestling Alliance, FWA, All Star, WAW, and Premiere Promotions held a tournament to crown a Universal British Champ - won by "The Anarchist" Doug Willaims...all the info is at <a href='http://www.thewrestlingalliance.co.uk' target='_blank'>www.thewrestlingalliance.co.uk</a> or at the FWA site or on <a href='http://www.prowrestlingnews.net' target='_blank'>www.prowrestlingnews.net</a>
This would be a good time to carry on with British Heavyweight title lineage as all the promotions were involved, and thus cant be disputed.

I know that Hammerlock Wrestling (NWA UK) held a Trans-Atlantic Challenge, and I was wondering what was the history of the Trans-Atlantic Cup (which latter became NWA UK TV Cup)? I know Sinn (Chris CHampion) was the 1st champion followed by Gary Steele. Any help would be awesome!

Checking in Liverpool sources, it appears clear that Cannon and McInerney did not match on 22 August 1894 (Connors matched in that date).
Moreover, Hack vs. Cannon held on 13 and not 5 September 1902. In both cases, no European title was on stake. Unique doubt covers possible awarding of Roeber (albeit unprobable).
