[2]: Paul Jones had won the NWA US title on November 27, 1975, and gave up the TV title.

[3]: This was a tournament final to fill the vacancy.

[4]: Steamboat vacated the title in December 1978 when he won the US title. This was a tournament final to fill the vacancy.

[11]: This was a tournament final. The title was declared vacant when Dusty Rhodes was unable to defend the belt due to an injury.
