DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Show: History of the NWA title, pt. 2

In part two of my look at the history of the NWA World heavyweight title, I start with the decision in 1948 to form the National Wrestling Alliance, why Orville Brown was the first NWA World champion, why he was set to face Lou Thesz who also held an NWA World title, and everything you need to know about the car wreck (pictured above) that nearly killed Brown and derailed that big unification match.

Enjoy this look at the the early days of the NWA title and be sure to listen to part one in case you missed it.
