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). I have been studying the history of the WWE Championship, and I see that Buddy Rogers was awarded the first WWWF Heavyweight belt due to some sort of dispute over (to my understanding) Rogers dropping the NWA World Heavyweight belt to Lou Thesz on Jan. 24, 1963. ...
A nice article.

I found this info that Libnan Ayoub, a historian in Australia, sent to another great historian Steve Yohe:
Katsuji Adachi, who is probably most known for his run in Calgary as Mr. Hito, passed away on 2010/04/21 at the age of 67 at a hospital in Osaka. He had been suffering diabetes for several years.
Former NWA & AWA world champion Gene Kiniski passed away this morning at the age of 81.
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.
Your lineage for SmackDown's Tag Team Championship ends at the unification, where in truth it has never stopped.
Former world heavyweight champion Jack Brisco passed away on 2010/02/01 at the age of 68.
In Japan, he is most rememberd as the world champion whom Giant Baba defeated to become the first Asian to hold the prestigeous title.
Found out that John Swenski defeated Bob Kenaston on 39/03/27 in Tulsa, OK for the NWA (Association) World Junior Heavyweight Title.
The 39/04/02 issue of The Oklahoman says that Swenski defeated Kenaston "in Tulsa last Monday."
