I was combing the Lou Thesz Forum over on the Wrestling Classics site, when I came across a thread containing some interesting info pertaining to the history of the National Wrestling Alliance.
Various articles and results taken from the Des Moines, IA Register list Orville Brown as defending the NWA heavyweight title as early as January 1947. It was even said at one point that he had held the title for seven consecutive years before ...
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 ...
Bob Geigel - President
Jim Crockett - 1st Vice President
Fred Ward - 2nd Vice President

Does anyone know if the WWF Hardcore title was the first ever "24/7 title"? When they first introduced that rule I thought it was a brillantly inventive idea, but was it actually original or did they just nick it from somewhere else...?

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' ...
You have still not added the Women's Title Change from Unforgiven, I just wondered whether you knew about it?
Trish pinned Molly on 22/09/2002 in Los Angeles, CA for the title.
