Is there a difference between the Jr. Heavyweight titles of the NWA and WWF in Japan and Mexico? They have separate entries. Are they two different belts (the Japanese and the Mexican?) regardless of the NWA/WWF designation?
I really can't say for sure. However, consider that at one time, 3 large, significant (for their time) wrestling promotions in the United States (Charlotte, Detroit and San Francisco) simultaneously recognized an NWA United States Heavyweight Champion and the NWA World Tag Team Championship. This occurred during an era when wrestling was only "connected" in Japan (specifically in terms of their mainstream media and network television exposure). Since promoters were free to take liberties elsewhere, particularly with more obscure titles (at least in the United States) such as lighter-weight titles, it's likely that any distinction or need thereof would be strictly for pedants. Another theory, which seems to stir enough shit every time I mention it, is that editors are merely parroting what their preferred sources state in one article after another, without any real discernment of what the information is or means. Usually it has the effect of mirroring the WWE historical revisionist version of pro wrestling.
Also, how much of this article is written in "kayfabe"? Some of it seems to be fanciful. Jackbox1971 (talk) 02:41, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
Albeit currently devoid of any real content, methinks Wikipedia:Fan analysis sums up the problem perfectly. I've noticed numerous wrestler biographies lately which have been written in the same fashion, almost to the point where they really need to be checked for copyright violation, especially with any web pages cited in the articles themselves.RadioKAOS (talk) 03:36, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
