I have read in the past that at one point the AWA title was split and there was the Omaha office recognizing someone different than the Minneapolis (?) office.

What was the deal with that ?

Omaha had its own World Title from 1957 to 1963. In 1963, they unified it with the AWA Title. What Omaha promoter Joe Dusek would do after the unification is have one week champions. This was done to draw a big crowd for the next card. The rest of the AWA cities were not aware of these AWA Title Changes in Omaha unless fans read about them in newsletters or magazines. The other AWA cities did not mention the AWA Title Changes in Omaha on TV, in arena programs or in local newspapers.
