|Willie Gilzenberg and Bruno Sammartino|
Dory Dixon held onto the WWWA championship until losing it to Karl Von Hess, on May 2. On May 17, Sammartino won the WWWF title from Rogers, in New York and Atkins took a break from promoting in Cleveland. By the time he started back up in the Cleveland Arena, there was some confusion about the two entities. Bruno, at times, was billed as being either the WWWA or WWWF champion, until later in the year when his official association/title became WWWF Champion.
~Thanks to Tim Hornbaker and his work, especially his new Capitol Revolution book. I would highly recommend reading it.
