* A humorous case happened in the 2000s to early 2010s when the NWA launched a spiritual successor to CWF Florida called Championship Wrestling from Hollywood(in Hollywood California, the older one operated in Hollywood FL) and The WWE launched a {{revival}} of Florida Championship Wrestling. [[DontExplainTheJoke For those who don't get it]], they both ran revivals\successors of the same company at once. CWF had been erroneously called FCW for years and was forced to temporarily change its name to FCW for a time in the nineties.

The NWA would require these CWF rights in 2003, so WWE once again fell back on the FCW designation.

* After the Wrestling/AmericanWrestlingAssociation stopped operating, former employees got together and started licensing the AWA name to other wrestling promotions as far away as the UK and Australia. While WWE bought the rights to the AWA and put a stop to this. After National Wrestling Superstars closed, Carolina Wrestling Federation Mid-Atlantic is the closest thing to a direct AWA successor the folks up north didn't manage to kill. Pro Wrestling International can kind of be seen as a successor to the post AWA "alliance", given CWF Mid-Atlantic's membership.
