Question about WWA World Light Heavyweight Title

Anybody know why the UWA World Welterweight Title is being promoted in Japan as the WWA World Light Heavyweight Title?

Both are seperate titles. Any title lineages I've seen have the title currently held by Tatsuhito Takaiwa tracing back to the title first held by Villano III in 1975 (the UWA World Welterweight Title) Are the title histories wrong, or are the Japanese (I think it's Zero-One who are promoting it) wrong?

(UWF &)WWF Intercontinental Tag Team Titles

alright, all i've been able to find out about these is that they were awarded to Gran Hamada & Perro Aguayo in July of '91. Did they beat a different team, or was there a tournament, or why did they get the titles? Also, when did the WWF-UWF split happen, and did these titles just vanish or were they carried out under a different name?

thanks in advance.

Update on the NWA-UK Hammerlock Heavyweight Title

Jonny Moss regained the title for the third time, defeating Paul Tracey on 18th Oct in Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland.

Also, on the NWA Ireland Title page, it's listed that Paddy Morrow won the UK title in Nashville on 8th October. That match was at the NWA convention, and ended in a DQ, so neither title changed hands.

All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling (1965 - 2005)

Ok, All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling had its final card back in April this year, and I'm sure many of you have already read this on other websites, but I'll post it anyway since this probably indicated the "real" end of the promotion.
