Hisa;what happened to the Canadian Hvywt Title History for A

....Wrestling NWA promotion out of British Columbia? I was doing some research for a friend of mine from Vancouver,and I noticed Tomko's ASW version of the NWA Canadian Hvywt Title is no longer listed. Was it removed for some reason or is this an error?

Thanks! :D

This is an intersting story I have to tell; Back in February,I attented the Cauliflower Alley Club Banquet and Reunion in Las Vegas(if you are into the history or respect of the sport,this is a MUST for you to attend at least once in your life).

It was made by Joe Marshall and was on his J-Mar belt we...

Here is my extremely nerdy belt mark response...

Repeat the title goes; I'm an "NWA mark" But I really like the WWF Hvywt belt fron '86/'87 when Hogan defended the belt at WM2 & WM3.The nice LARGE OVAL GLOBE on the belt just says "most imortant" or"number one title". I also like the NWA Tag Team Belts when the Steiners,Freebirds,& DOO...
