Apparently some entity or formation of entity has bought the rights to the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA™) name. It was announced via the CEO Vice President & COO of International Wrestling Corp. via his personal facebook with shared public image of the current NWA™ logo.

Interesting that their "headquarters" is their CFO's Houston residence.

I smell a tax dodge!

(On the other hand, hey, now you can just go knock on the door of the NWA CFO. Real good thinking on his part to leave all that info publicly available)

Interesting that this list mostly ignores the time that the NWA belt was in TNA. It includes Jarrett and Killings, yes, but no Rhino, Raven, Styles, or Christian.

If I remember correctly, Rhino held the belt for one week or so, and Raven only for a few weeks longer.

Raven held the title for three months right before TNA started up with Spike TV.

http://www.hollywoodtoday.net/?p=1129 So apparently Vince has until this ceremony sometime next year to return from the grave... I guess the Hollywood Walk of Fame folks didn't get the memo and slap a parenthetical (posthumous) before his name.
