It never did. NWA never changed it's name, WCW just broke away from the NWA organization.































Before changing it's name to WCW it's name was Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling and Georgia Championship Wrestling. Even though they had two names both were owned by Jim Crockett Promotions and pretty much were the same thing.































In late 1988 Crockett was in desperate need of money to stay alive so instead of folding the company Jim Crockett sold it to WTBS. Soon after the sale WTBS started moving the company away from the NWA by changing it's titles and television shows from NWA to WCW. By early 1991 the NWA name was completely dropped.















































BQ: The WWF have been in a court battle with the World Wildlife Fund since 1994 over the rights to the WWF initials. Both parties came to an agreement in which the World Wrestling Federation would use the WWF intials for limited use only. However, with the WWF becoming insanely popular in the late '90s the limited use agreement became a hard thing to obey which caused the World Wildlife Fund to take the WWF to court yet again.































As they years went by it appeared as if the World Wrestling Federation would overcome the court battle and not have to deal with the matter anymore. The court battle became very intense in late 2001 which many thought the World Wildlife Fund would win but only get writes to the wwf.com domain name.































Then in early May of 2002, the judge ruled in favor of the World Wildlife Fund for the rights to the WWF initials. Many believe the reason the judge ruled in favor of the World Wildlife Fund was due to the fact that the organization had been founded in 1961 while the World Wrestling Federation changed to the WWF initials in 1979. The WWF then changed their name to the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) as a result of losing the case.































The official website for the WWE can now be found at WWE.com instead of WWF.com.
