* The Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance World TagTeam Titles go back to 1950. The problem is that until 1992, no less that twelve different territories made irreconcilable claims as to just who those World Tag Team Title Holder were. Prior to the Miracle Violence Connection's 1992 title victory, the official record simply lists "vacant".

* The members of the NWA refused to acknowledge the Fabulous Moolah's first reign as the World Woman's Champion. In defiance of this, the World Wrestling Federation decided Moolah's first title reign had not ended, not for twenty eight years anyway. The reigns of Penny Banner, whom Moolah beat for the belt and Betty Boucher, who then beat Moolah, are ignored by both the NWA and WWF/E. During these twelve years, June Byers was the only champion on the NWA record and she doesn't exist in the WWF's.

* Wrestling/BoboBrazil never beat Wrestling/BuddyRogers for the NWA World Heavyweight Title, so says the NWA.[[note]]Brazil initially refused the title because Rogers claimed to have only lost due to a groin injury. Even though Bobo was happy to be champion after a Doctor later clarified Buddy was not injured, the NWA decided to disregard Bobo's reign anyway.[[/note]] Carib wrestlers Jack Veneno[[note]]decided to drop the belt rather than endure the champion's touring schedule, his reign ended up completely ignored[[/note]] and Carlos Colon[[note]]unification with another world title to proclaim a "champion of the universe" ignored[[/note]] never held the belt either! This would actually become a plot point in Wrestling/{{TNA}}, back when it hosted NWA title defenses. Wrestling/RonKillings correctly pointing out the NWA refused to acknowledge any black men as World Heavyweight Champion.

Added DiffLines:

* [[Wrestling/MadisonRayne Lexi Lane]] first wrestled Jessicka Havok in Newark Ohio during June of 2006, won, and afterwards was hounded by Havok to the end of the year and into the next [[SoreLoser because of it]]. Despite this, Battle Angels hyped its ''[=CyberStorm=] 2007'' i pay per view with a "first time ever" match between the two.


Added DiffLines:

* For WWE's burying of wrestlers like Wrestling/BryanDanielson and Wrestling/LowKi on commentary to make any sense, the fact that they did wrestle before joining the company on various independent circuits has to be acknowledged but their matches for national promotions like [[Wrestling/ProWrestlingNOAH NOAH]], New Japan and [[Wrestling/{{AAA}} Triple A]] have to be completely be ignored, even though the crowds on the shows make it plainly obvious they know better. To a lesser extent, Brock Lesnar's dismissal of Wrestling/CMPunk for having gained his reputation in high school gyms requires one to overlook that when Lesnar became a pro wrestler he initially wrestled in front of crowds too small to fill up any high school's gym.

* The failed TV pilot ''Film/BatesMotel1987'' ignored ''Film/PsychoII'' and ''Film/PsychoIII'', and set itself up as an alternate sequel to the original 1960 ''Film/Psycho''. Which also had the side-effect of making it quite easy for the subsequent ''Film/PsychoIVTheBeginning'' to ignore ''Bates Motel'' after it didn't get picked up for the series (short of some alterations to the motel buildings made in ''Bates Motel'' still being present in ''Psycho IV'', as that film didn't have the budget to restore the motel to its original configuration).

* According to the "official" WWE title history, Wrestling/BobBacklund defeated Wrestling/SuperstarBillyGraham for the WWWF Title in February 1978, and lost it to Wrestling/TheIronSheik in December 1983. However, in November 1979, at a cross-promotional show in Japan, Wrestling/AntonioInoki defeated Backlund cleanly for the title, and was announced and promoted at NWF (National Wrestling Federation, a subsidiary of the NWA) shows as being the WWWF Champion. Since the WWWF never authorized this title change, they never acknowledged Inoki as being their first (and, discounting the Pacific-Islander Wrestling/{{Yokozuna}} only) Asian world champion.

* ''ComicBook/ShazamTheNewBeginning'' by Roy Thomas was DC Comics' first official ComicBook/PostCrisis reboot of the origin of [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] until years later when it was replaced by ''The Power of Shazam!'' by Jerry Ordway. Notably, while this carefully left Marvel's other post-Crisis appearances untouched, it removed Black Adam's significant role in the ''War of the Gods'' CrisisCrossover, establishing that Adam didn't have his powers between Billy's origin story and his return in the ''[=PoS=]'' ongoing.

** ''Crisis Compendium'' places (or maybe dumps) this story on "Earth-85", along with other early post-Crisis stories that got contradicted by later events, such as ''Comicbook/{{Catwoman}}: The Hot Roof Club'' (which has Selina wearing her pre-Crisis purple-and-green costume, and features the death of Holly Robinson) and everyone's favourite ContinuitySnarl, ''Comicbook/{{Hawkman}}''.

* ''ComicBook/SonicX'' is a curious case. As is the norm with comic tie-ins to cartoons in general, it was utterly ignored by the show it was based on, and the comic even had glaring continuity issues with the anime since issue #1. However, the editorial behind the Sonic X comic was also the publisher of the regular Sonic comics, and they had the two titles cross over, establishing the Sonic X comic exists in the Archie Sonic universe as an alternate dimension. In other words, the tie-in comic ''is non-canon to the Anime it's based on, but is perfectly canon to the completely unrelated Archie Sonic continuity.''
