The Mid-Atlantic Gateway is building a list of all known NWA
world title matches to take place in the Mid-Atlantic territory,
beginning with the 1970s, and will then move to the 1960s and 1980s.

receiving title shots. Results are not offered. (See below for

provide a record of when the NWA champion was in the area and to
document which wrestlers were receiving title shots. A frequently
asked question is: why no results? If I had reliable results, and
for all matches and not selected matches, I'd post them. If you are
familiar with newspaper clippings from the period, especially when
you move into the 1970s, you know how unreliable and sporadic they
were. No attempt was made to gather meaningful results from the
clippings which were used to compile these lists. Suffice it to say,
the champion retained his title.
Special thanks to Mark Eastridge, whose
tireless research on wrestling clippings made this list possible.
