National Wrestling Federation

The original National Wrestling Federation was a wrestling promotion based in Buffalo, New York and owned by promoter Pedro Martínez. It ran from 1970 to 1974; the promotion was revived in 1986 by Robert Raskin. The revived promotion closed in 1994. Pedro Martínez owned the original National Wrestling Federation, which operated from 1970 to 1974; the NWF Heavyweight Championship and NWF North American Heavyweight Championship were used by New Japan Pro Wrestling as its main titles until 1981. During the original version of the NWF, popular performers included Johnny Powers, Ernie Ladd, Waldo Von Erich, Chief White Owl, Hans Schmidt, the Mighty Igor, Luis Martinez, Ron Sanders, Dusty Rhodes, Tony Parisi, Tony Marino, the Stomper, Ben Justice, the Love Brothers, Dick the Bruiser, Black Jack Lanza, Dr. Moto, Mitsu Arakawa, Bulldog Brower. Championship Wrestling aired on Channel 43 in Cleveland on Saturday nights. A second show, All-Star Wrestling, aired on Sunday Mornings; that show was filmed in the studios of WUAB-TV in Ohio.

The television hosts were Johnny Powers, Jack Reynolds, Ron Martinez. The film from each show was erased and reused to save money, hence few of the shows are available now on video or YouTube. In 1986, Robert Raskin purchased the Allentown, Pennsylvania-based Continental Wrestling Alliance from DC Drake and renamed it the National Wrestling Federation; the organization created an NWF Women's Championship. Under the direction of Raskin, the National Wrestling Federation grew rapidly. Using wrestlers who were under contract with the World Wrestling Federation and the National Wrestling Alliance, Raskin spared no expense in making the product a watchable alternative to the wrestling shows which were on television. Drake, the champion headed up the booking and television production ends of the business. Raskin felt that the NWF should move the television tapings from the Easton, PA VFW Hall to various locations around the east coast. Matches were taped at arenas in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, other locations.

Raskin hired a young Paul Heyman to handle color commentary on the TV show. Drake and Raskin decided to put more emphasis on the NWF Women's Division; as the women's division became established, Wendi Richter was defeated in a questionable fashion in Madison Square Garden by The Fabulous Moolah and left the organization. She entered the NWF and captured the title from Heidi Lee Morgan; the revived NWF placed a major emphasis on hardcore wrestling, including many specialty matches such as Indian strap matches, dog collar matches, steel cage matches. Raskin, seeing the organization expand, merged with Creative Entertainment, a sports and entertainment promotional organization from Philadelphia; this move proved to be a smart one as Creative Entertainment was able to book matches for the NWF across the country. The television show expanded to Sports Channels and broadcast stations across the country and appeared in foreign markets in Europe and Central America and Asia; as the company grew, creative differences began to split the organization and several in the front office left to pursue other ventures.

As the capital investment stopped, the television product was halted. The promotion closed in 1994. 1970-1974: NWF Heavyweight Championship NWF North American Heavyweight Championship NWF World Tag Team Championship NWF Canadian Tag Team Championship – First and only champions were Fidel Castillo and Roul Castillo, who won the championship in 1972.

He lost the championship to Bruiser Brody in October 1987. NWF Women's Championship – First and only champion was Wendi Richter, defeating Heidi Lee Morgan on June 20, 1987 in Bricktown, New Jersey.
