Florida Championship Wrestling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (258 words)
Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) was an National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) promotion that started in Florida in 1949.
It has been called Championship Wrestling Florida, NWA Championship Wrestling from Florida, Pro Wrestling Florida and simply FCW throughout its existence.
On March 2, 2006, it was announced that the Florida Championship Wrestling library was purchased by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) for the upcoming DVD on Dusty Rhodes.
National Wrestling Alliance - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography (2203 words)
In order to join the NWA, a promoter must have been operating for at least one year in a territory uncontested by any other NWA member, and their application must be approved by a majority vote of the Board of Directors, although there are numerous exceptions to this bylaw currently within the organization.
The presidency of the NWA was dissolved and the duties of the office assumed by the Board of Directors following the resignation of Ernie Todd, the promoter of NWA: Canadian Wrestling Federation, in August 2005.
The most visible NWA member promotion in the United States in recent times was undoubtedly NWA Wildside, which aired 300 consecutive weeks of syndicated television before closing in April 2005, when the promoter, Bill Behrens, signed a deal to work as a television syndicator for WWE.
