NWA North American Heavyweight Title

Could somebody tell me whether the Stampede title in particular was definitely a version of the NWA title or was it a completely separate title?

EDIT: Actually, are all the different regional titles listed versions of the NWA title? In other words, did they all have NWA recognition?

NWA-Stampede

The old N.W.A. Board only recognized the world heavyweight, junior heavyweight and light heavyweight titles. However, the World Junior Heavyweight Title was controlled by Leroy McGuirk of the Tri-State area while Light Heavyweight Title has been controlled by the Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre. Other member organizations were allowed to recognize their own N.W.A. titles except the World Heavyweight Title.

So the Stampede version would have been a NWA title while Stampede was a NWA member, but so were other versions! Once Stampede left the NWA it became an IWA title.
