Year Brands Notes
2006 Retribution
After acquiring American Wrestling Alliance (AWA) and Global Wrestling Alliance (GWA), the UWF split its roster into two distinctive wrestling brands, Retribution and Salvation. CCW Board of Directors announced that CCW co-owners Maximillion Pegasus and Jerry Seltzer would draft superstars to Retribution and Salvation respectively.
2007 Retribution
To remain active with the Armageddon tagline of "Where it all begins again", UWF Chairman Jerry Seltzer announced a draft lottery, as he stated it was time for a "new UWF" and "it's time to shake things up again". Each general manager received eleven picks and nine trades.
2008 Retribution
Unlike previous draft lotteries which occurred on one night, this draft lottery took place over two days in June. Each general manager will select all available wrestlers, including General Managers, to have on their brand. On the second draft day, the General Managers have eight supplamental draft picks. In this draft, the World Championship, X-Division Champion, and the Tag Team Champions were drafted to Retribution while the TNA titles stayed the same.
2009 Betryal
Acquiring all assets from Invasion, the United Wrestling Federation will merge from American Wrestling Alliance, Christian Championship Wrestling, Global Wrestling Alliance, National Wrestling Alliance, Total Nonstop Action, World Championship Wrestling, World Wrestling All-Stars, and World Wrestling Entertainment to form Betrayal, Deception, and Legacy.
