A Japanese developer was working on a wrestling game called UWC that never got released for reasons that aren't clear. What makes this interesting is that this game featured NWA/WCW stars. Sting, Ric Flair, the Road Warriors and Bobby ing Eaton were some of the characters planned to be in the game. I think the best guess is the WCW NES game that we ended up with is the reason this never came out. Strangely enough the two games look similar.
The guy who now owns the game is going to put the rom out. It isn't 100% done but it looks pretty playable.

With as good of records as he kept about everything, I'd be surprised if Cornette doesn't remember the dealings of this, with Stan Lane and Bobby Eaton being featured. Unless of course, it wasn't licensed. This is more than likely mentioned in the dense Midnight Express scrapbook, if there was any sort of royalties paid for likeness.
I'm guessing this wasn't released because it's "UWC" rather than NWA/WCW. Though it is an unfinished prototype. I can't imagine it would've got this far into completion though without bothering to acquire licensing.
Stubbornness is perseverance refined. So you have to watch what you say around stubborn people
