Indie Wrestling Promotion strips Alberto Del Rio of their World Championship

Alberto El Patron

While there is still uncertainty about Alberto Del Rio’s status as the undisputed GFW Champion following his suspension, an indie promotion has announced that they are stripping him of their World Championship.

World Association of Wrestling, an indie wrestling promotion owned by Paige’s family revealed via press release that they are stripping Del Rio of the WAW World Heavyweight Championship.

Though interestingly enough, the promotion did not even mention Alberto in any manner in their press release and they only announced that the championship is now vacant and a tournament will be held to determine a new champion. Below is an excerpt of their statement:

“The WAW Undisputed World Heavyweight Championship has been declared vacant at last night’s Academy Show in Costessey, following a unanimous decision by the WAW Championship Committee

A 32 man tournament has been announced to determine a new Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion over the course of the rest of 2017 with the final taking place at Epic Studios, Norwich in December. The entrants into this tournament will be deliberated by the WAWCC over the coming weeks before brackets are announced.”

It’s worth mentioning here that despite all the reports of fights and break up, Alberto Del Rio and Paige were seen together once again yesterday in San Antonio.

    I am not sure whether Paige is 100% innocent in this domestic violence thing, but she does come across as the typical victim of mental/physical abuse. Starts convincing herself she is to blame and makes excuses for her abuser.
    I mean, she first said it was some random woman that threw the drink at Del Rio. Then she said it was her herself who did it. But for me, the reports indicate it is Del Rio being investigated, not Paige and I am sure that GFW would not have suspended him if it was in fact Paige that was the one being investigated for assault. Unless Paige or someone else made an allegation against him, I do not see why he would be the one being investigated.

    Its a very worrying situation regardless, and those two may both be crazy as hell, but they are bad for each other no doubt.
