Since it first became a point of study for me fifteen years ago, wrestling history has always fascinated me. The answer to one question in particular has always eluded me, and this seems like the perfect place to get it sorted out.
Regarding the relationship between William Muldoon and John L Sullivan...does anyone here happen to have info to share regarding their alleged mixed match of 1887? Did such a match occur at all outside ...
Shouldn't the WCW Cruiserweight Championship have a separate page to the WWE Cruiserweight Championship? I noticed when WCW was defeated at the 2001 Survivor Series and became no more, the WCW Cruiserweight Title became a WWE Title, but you just kept the title history on the same page.
I am just learning about pro wrestling history which took place before where my personal recollections kick in (the Attitude era of WWF and the Monday Night Wars).

He had been battling cancer for years and was hospitalized due to heart failure earlier this year.
How come the Million Dollar Championship is not mentioned here? If Ted Dibiase just wore the belt and claimed to be the Million Dollar CHampion and never defended it what-so-ever, I would understand no mention, but the fact that he had defended it on a few occasions, and lost it to Virgil, then regained it again suggests that not only did the Championship exist, it has a history.
