After Rogers' one fall loss to Lou Thesz for the title on January 24, 1963, which Northeast promoters (led by Vince McMahon Sr. and Toots Mondt) did not recognize, they withdrew their membership from the NWA to form the World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF). The WWWF billed Rogers as their world champion since January 25, but did not recognize him as the first ever WWWF World Heavyweight Champion until April 11, 1963. However, WWE.com lists Rogers' reign and the establishment of the title beginning on April 25, 1963.|
