When did wwf join wcw?


What ever happened to wcw?

WWF and WCW had a match, and who ever the loser was agreed to shut down there show (WCW/WWF) and so WWF won so WCW was shut down

In the early 90's Ric Flair left WCW for the WWF while holding the WCW title. How did WCW explain this to fans?

During that time it was announced that Ric Flair and WCW had a contract dispute and Flair was stripped of the title. WCW took the two top contenders and put them in a cage match; barry windham and lex luger. A new title belt was brought in as the WCW World title. Not much was really said about this, but the NWA and WCW separated at the time as well. When Flair entered the WWF with the title there really wasn't any explanation on WCW tv, nor WWF tv except he was the "REAL" World Champion. Flair did leave WCW as world champion, so it was a legit claim. He went to the WWF with the NWA World Title belt. As stated above, WCW had split from the NWA. In early 1991, Ric Flair was actually the WCW and NWA champion after he defeated Sting to win the title back. When he left WCW to go to the WWF, he took the belt because his deposit of $25000 was not returned. After the deposit plus interest was paid, the belt was returned to the NWA where a title tournament was held. Soon after, Flair was wearing another title belt on WWF TV but it was censored. If you looked closely, you could tell that it was not the same belt because it had a blue spot in the middle. The big gold belt was one solid color.

How did wcw become WWE?

WCW didn't become WWE, WWF became WWE. Back in the late 1990's-early 2000s, both wrestling promotions WWF and WCW were feuding with each other in the ratings, until WWF bought WCW out and now no longer exists. The reason WWF became WWE is because the World Wildlife Foundation (Also known as WWF) was established 1961, which was before WWWF shortened their name to WWF in 1979. So even though "the company WWE" existed before the World Wildlife Foundation, it changed its name to the World Wildlife Foundation's initials "WWF". So in 2002, the World Wildlife Foundation decided to sue WWF, for the initials which forced the WWF to change its name and it was decided to be from there called World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Basicly it went from WWWF to WWF to WWE. No WCW was involved in the process except the fact that WWF bought WCW out.
