Question Concerning Heart Of America Name Change

Many title histories mention that the NWA Central States territory (and its Championship) was originally known as the "Heart Of America" territory (and Championship). I have been wondering for quite some time exactly when the name change took place. No list is clear.

Thank you.

Origins of the Southern Junior Heavyweight Title - 11/1/07

The beginning of this championship has long been in question. If you look at a title history of this particular belt, you will see that it was active in one shape or form for decades - and even today there is ...

NWA world heavyweight title tournament

The brackets have been announced:

http://www.nwawrestling.com/champ/

To be honest, I don't know many of these wrestlers, but I think the video production is well done (doesn't look too cheap). Sure, NWA isn't what it used to be, but these guys are trying to making the events look very important thru this video clip, and I think they are doing good job at it.
