This would obviously never have happened in RL due to his willingness to walk out on any promoter if he thought he was getting a raw deal but indulge me, if you will, in a timeline where the NWA sees so much money in Bruiser Brody that they decide to make him the touring World Champion anyway despite his maverick ways.
I’m not sure in which timeframe this would be most likely to happen albeit it would likely have to be before Jim Crockett became the ipso facto sole promoter of the title.
The reason the idea appeals to me is because it inverts the traditional NWA formula. To wit, traditionally, the Champion had to be a shooter to protect himself in the ring in case one of his opponents tried to go into business for himself and steal the title. In this case, I imagine it wouldn’t take very long before the various territory promoters would be trying to find their own shooters as challengers in hopes of taking the title away from Brody and putting it on someone they would be more likely to trust and/or control.
What say you? How do you think this would all play out?
