Let's see:

ECW, broke away from the NWA, now dead.
WCW, broke away from the NWA, now dead.
TNA, broke away from the NWA, is now TNA.

NWA, still alive, not TNA. NWA wins.

I seem to recall Corgan being a lot happier in interviews pre-Mellon Collie, before the band added 'The' to their title. Maybe he was happier being indie.

He's only agreed to purchase it "in principle". There's still 3-6 months of court proceedings and mindless mudslinging if Billy Pumpkins track record is any indication.

It hasn't had the best looking world title since the 90s. This is the current NWA title:

For the last 24 or so years it's basically a name that other promotions have used to get some credibility for during an angle and that's about it.
