1 Buddy Rogers 1 01963-04-25 April 25 1963 &&&&&&&&&&&&&022.&&&&&022 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil N/A He won an fictional tournament in Rio de Janeiro after the WWWF left the National Wrestling Alliance, where he was the 7th champion defeating Pat O'Connor on 30 June 1961.

(November 21, 1961): Killer Kowalski defeated Rogers in Montreal when Rogers broke his ankle in the first fall but he was only recognized as champion in some states. Unlike following contenders, Kowalski did not choose to refuse the title, and considered himself to be the champion because of Rogers forfeiting the remaining falls. The NWA considers the match void because of the 3 falls not happening.

(August 2, 1962): Bruno Sammartino defeated Rogers in a title match in Toronto. (August 18, 1962): Bobo Brazil also did. Both men did not choose to accept the title because of Rogers' injuries, but (September 6, 1962): the NWA officials forced Brazil to take the title because of doctor's claims that Rogers had faked his injury. In spite of this, neither of the reigns are recognized by the NWA. (October 30, 1962): Rogers won it back from Brazil.

(January 21, 1963): Rogers defeated Kowalski in New York, but Kowalski said that the match wasn't for the title. Three days later on January 24, 1963, Lou Thesz pinned Rogers once, but (similar to the 1961 incident with Kowalski) promoters who questioned it was supposed to be a best-of-three falls did not recognize a title exchange, that Thesz was not given the opportunity to compete for the following 2 falls (while NWA argued that he avoided them) and 3 months after this, the WWWF departure from the NWA happened.
