I posted this on WrestlingClassics.com in reply to a question about the title, so I decided to post here for your info as well:
I don't know when McGuirk actually retired, but his promotion closed in '82. He controlled the title throughout the 50s-70s at least until '80 (could be '82 when his promotion closed).
Nelson Royal was awarded the title on 79/07/28 when the champion Al Madril was too ill for the match. However, ...
I found this in the October 1984 Issue of Pro Wrestling Illustrated. It shows his title defense schedule while Kerry was champion. I thought whomever was doing the Complete Listing of NWA Title defense webpage would be interested. It doesn't list the outcomes of the matches though.
May 7 - Terry Gordy - Fort Worth, Texas
May 8 - Ric Flair - Muskogee, Oklahoma (Non-Title)
May 9 - Ric Flair - Corpus Cristi, Texas

After Brian Pillman's untimely death, a writer for TV guide attacked the WWF. To respond to that, the WWF used the world's biggest loudspeaker, Jim Cornette, to respond. In his beautifully mastered tirade Cornette started tracing back the title history of wrestling and made a startling link to Abraham Lincoln. Can anyone verify this or point me in a direction to verify ...

I was wondering if anyone could help me (direct me to a good website maybe). I am trying to track down the times of match where the title changed. I know this will be verey hard to do for older title changes, but it seems that people don't even bother to list the times of matches on modern PPVs anymore.
I know the time of the match still means something in Japan and I figured ...
Former National Wrestling Association World Heavyweight champion Bobby Managoff passed away on April 3rd. He was the world champ during the WWII when many wrestlers were not available.
Lou Thesz's famous 936 consecutive win record started on the day after he lost to Managoff in Buffalo on 1948/06/11.
Managoff was indeed the living history of pro-wrestling.

For being such an integral part of wrestling history, wrestling's championship belts often do not get "much play" (except for a couple of cool places on the 'net, like Yahoo! Groups, NWA Midwest, and here). Just wondering, what's everyone's favorite belt design(s) (past or present)?
My all-time absolute favorite is the WWF Intercontinental Title from 1985-1998 (the version Reggie Parks created, with the globe in the middle and the the "layered off" effect on the ...
I have a question for anybody about the NWA independant heavyweight title. I have read on two or three differant websites that there was such a title and that Sabu was the champion. In talking to the webmaster of another website he told me that there was a title but it was NOT recognized by the NWA. can anybody tell me who if anyone recognized this title and what the history was .
