The extinct NWA territory system in North America

Formed in 1948, the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) was the largest governing body in professional wrestling. Under the control of the NWA Board of Directors (consisting of various prominent, regional promoters), the organization oversaw the NWA's national territory system which recognized one world champion, participated in talent exchanges, and collectively protected the territorial integrity of member promotions. Unlike independent promotions, territories collaborate and recognize other member promotions. In 1993,[1] the territories were reorganized following the withdrawal of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW). As other territories left the organization, the NWA would discontinue its memberships in August 2012.[2][3][4][5]

In October 2023, the NWA reintroduced the territory system under the ownership of Billy Corgan's Lightning One, Inc. The first NWA-affiliated promotion introduced under the new system was NWA Exodus Pro Midwest, owned by then NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion EC3.[6]

The following is a list of all past NWA-affiliated promotions and/or territories.
