Last week Alberto Del Rio and Paige were involved in an altercation at the Orlando International Airport, and it was later reported that GFW Champion Alberto Del Rio had been suspended indefinitely from the company due to the incident.
Now another wrestling company has taken action against Alberto Del Rio, as WAW has announced that Alberto has been stripped of the WAW Undisputed World Heavyweight Championship and the title is now vacant.
Last week Paige’s brother came forward on social media and accused Alberto of being a control freak that beats Paige. WAW is owned by Paige’s family, and it’s interesting to note that Alberto’s name is not mentioned in the statement about the title being vacant. WAW issued the following:
“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. The WAWCC’s decision was announced by Zak Knight but no information was revealed regarding the crowning of a new champion. Since the announcement several individuals have announced their desire to compete for the title. Both European Heavyweight Champion Robin Lekime and British Heavyweight Champion Aaron Sharp have already revealed their desire to add more gold to their repertoire, as well as former World Heavyweight Champion Brad Slayer and former European Heavyweight Champion King Kendo. With four of WAW’s top competitors already eyeing up the most prestigious title will anyone else step forward in the hope of gaining public support?”
“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.”
