Question About Verne Gagne's Number of Title Reigns

Postby Jordan Richards » 2009/12/20 Sun 6:51 pm

I have a question that has bugged me for a few years...why is it that most AWA World Title histories list Verne Gagne as having won the AWA belt 10 times, when AWA programming, PWI and other mags, and Verne Gagne himself always referred to him being a nine-time champion?

Probably because the title switches between Gagne and Mad Dog Vachon in May 1964 were acknowledged only in Omaha and were never "officially" recognized by AWA.
