The year is 1991. The AWA is on the verge of shutting down operations. When a millionaire steps in and buys the AWA with promises of reviving the declining promotion. Verne Gagne has been kept to run the promotion. With the backing of the millionaire and Gagnes vast knowledge of wrestling, they believe they can rival other big promotions. The millionaire has signed a contract with ESPN to continue to air wrestling on the sports network. All titles have been vacated. Welcome to the all new AWA!
(This promotion will not go on forever. I will use the black and white online releases in order they were released. I'll skip Legends 6 and actually have it be the final entry. I'll also use Swarms Legends of Wrestlemania set after Legends 11 but before Legends 6. Once complete I will end the promotion and then get into Legends color)
*Edit: I completely forgot I had the "bootlegs" from the Low group in Yahoo. I'll be using these as well.
