Re: The Territory Era

WCW was essentially composed of:

1) NWA: Mid-Atlantic (JCP), Central States, St. Louis, Championship Wrestling from Georgia (Ole Anderson group's shares of GCW), Championship Wrestling from Florida. All merged into "NWA World Championship Wrestling".

2) UWF: Bill Watts - (apparently not the tape library though). Merged with NWA WCW though UWF was independent and not a member of NWA.

3) The name "World Championship Wrestling" and the Turner Broadcasting (TBS) Time slot which were purchased from Vince McMahon who had purchased them from Jack & Jerry Briscoe's shares of Georgia Championship Wrestling.

Ted Turner eventually purchased all of this, and left the NWA in the early 1990s so the company was just known as "WCW" up until purchased by Vince McMahon where it became a subsidiary of WWE.
