Was looking through Vance Nevada's listings from Vancouver in 1979, and came across a possible update to the title history. It has Sal Martino winning the title on 3/29/79, but he was in a tag match that night in Victoria, BC. On 3/30/79, in Vernon, BC, Sal Martino is scheduled to wrestle Gene Kiniski. This may be where the switch occurs, but no results are given.
Benjamin Straughn has posted a lot of Southeastern Championship Wrestling shows on youtube recently, and finally caught one of the shows. During the 9/15/84 show, it was announced that Porkchop Cash won the Alabama Title from Boris Zhukov in Pensacola, FL. I haven't watched the 9/8/84 show yet, but if Zhukov was still champ then, my assumption, if Pensacola was still run on Sunday's, then 9/9/84 may be the date of the title change.
I compiled this for an SNS group but also decided to archive it here just in case.

I've been watching the Memphis Wrestling episodes from 1981 on youtube that were put up by Wesley Corman. It appears that it's from a Louisville, KY station, so, it may be a week behind the original air date in Memphis? Anyhow, the TV Title looks to have changed hands on the 2/28/81 episode (probably 2/21/81 if it's a week behind). On that episode, Dutch Mantel defeated Koko Ware for the championship. I think on this ...
Just finished watching some Texas All-Star Wrestling on Daily Motion, and the finals of the Texas Six-Man Tag Team Championship (that's what Steve Stack referred to it as) took place on January 12, 1986 in San Antonio, TX. It was said to be a 7 team tournament, with the finals having Elijah Akeem, Kareem Muhammed and Kamala defeating Big Bubba, One Man Gang and Mark Youngblood.
During the segregation era, there were many negro/colored titles in the US. Here are some of those which are not listed on Wrestling-Titles.com:

Was wondering if someone has the title lineage for the USA Jr Title, that was held by Ric McCord, Dale Veasey, and Al Gavigan, during the summer of 85 into 1986.
I no longer have my wrestling title history book, and can't remember the dates of the title changes.
I never knew there was a lineage prior to the match where George Becker defeated Steve Passas in 1939/01/20 in Bridgeport. In fact, Passas was a multiple-time champion throughout the 1930s.
Looks like this title was recognized by the New England promoters who were not associated with Pau Bowser.

ROH and New Japan Pro-Wrestling are holding joint cards in Toronto on 2014/05/09 & 05/10 and at the Manhattan Center on 05/17. NJPW is planning to send about 10 wrestlers from Japan.
