Re: WIWA: World International Wrestling Alliance
We came to Miami, Florida for the 1st ever WIWA PPV and 19364 people jammed the DC American Airlines Arena for what was to be a sensational opening PPV.
First off Paul Heyman entered right after the fireworks to announce the matches for tonights show. He didnt dissapoint the fans either as they errupted when he announced that Hulk Hogan,Sting,Ultimate Warrior,Diesel,Edge,Eddie Guerrero,Chris Benoit,HBK,Randy Savage and Randy Orton would compete in a 10 Man Gauntlet match to crown the 1st ever WIWA Heavyweight champion. Also Razor Ramon would face Y2J,RVD and Christian in a Fatal 4 Way for the International Championship. The tag team titles would be on the line when DX2000's Road Dogg & Syxx Pac meet the Dudley Boyz and the Hardy Boyz in a 3 Way Ladder Match. A Hardcore Title Invatational would also happen where anyone willing to compete in it will enter. And last but not least the WIWA Lightweight title would be on the line when Chavo Guerrero,Paul London,CM Punk,Blitzkrieg,La Parka,Psicosis,Amazing Red and Rey Mysterio go at it in an 8 Man Top rope battle royal!
Then we were taken backstage to Road Dogg,Syxx Pac,Billy Gunn and Konnans locker room as Billy and Konnan revved their boys up for the tag team ladder match. Billy then said he would represent DX2000 in the hardcore title invatational
1st Match: Lightweight Championship Battle Royal
Participants: Chavo Guerrero,Paul London,CM Punk,Bitzkrieg,La Parka,Psicosis,Amazing Red and Rey Mysterio.
All 8 men recieved pops when they entered but the crowd was clearly behind CM Punk and Rey Mysterio. The bell rang and Blitzkrieg charged at Chavo but Chavo dodged and sent Blitzkrieg over the top rope!
Everyone paired off while Chavo stood there taunting Blitzkrieg. CM Punk chants from all over the building. Psicosis went for a high flying manouver but was attacked from behind by Chavo and pushed to the floor to eliminate Psicosis from the Battle.
Blitzkrieg was now back up on the apron and shouting abuse at Chavo.
Chavo came over and socked Blitzkrieg when from behind La Parka lifted Chavo over the top rope and eliminated him!
This sparked a brawl between Chavo and Blitzkrieg with the fans clearly behind Chavo. They poured out into the back before being seperated from each other by security.
Back in the ring Mysterio nailed the bronco buster on La Parka as CM Punk and Paul London were trying to get rid of Amazing Red who kept ahold of the ropes and eventually London and Punk turned on each other. La Parka whipped Mysterio to the ropes and went for a wheelbarrow suplex which was countered into an unbelievable bulldog. Mysterio went for Punk but Punk knocked him down with a superkick. Paul London dropkicked Punk and Punk stumbled over the top rope but managed to hold on. London turned around and Amazing Red nailed a hurricanrana on him. Everyone but Red was down and Red dragged La Parka to the corner were he then signaled for the Infa-Red!
Red nailed it and then London picked up an unconscious La Parka to eliminate him from the match.
There were now 4 left, London,Red,Punk and Mysterio. They all stared each other down before pairing off. While Punk hammered Mysterio in the corner London gave Red a DDT then mounted the top rope looking to hit the 450 splash but Red rolled out of the way and London crashed THROUGH the ring!
This counted as an elimination and had the whole crowd chanting HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!. As the medic team came out to stretcher London to the back, Mysterio and Red nailed a double dropkick on CM Punk and then took each other down with clotheslines. Punk was first to his feet and picked up Red and went to throw him out when Mysterio came from behind and lifted Punk over the ropes to eliminate both Punk and Red and be crowned the FIRST WIWA Lightweight champion. The crowd were on their feet cheering and clapping as Punk and Red returned to the ring and shook hands with Mysterio as all three got amazing reactions from the fans.
Match Time: 16m 34s
Order of Elimination: Blitzkrieg,Psicosis,Chavo Guerrero,La Parka,Paul London,Amazing Red,CM Punk
WINNER: Rey Mysterio
The maintenance crew come down and repair the whole in the ring before the next match starts.
We were then taken backstage were Razor and Diesel were talking about their matches tonight when Christian walked up and told them that they were old, used and past their prime stars while Christian will rise to the top soon and see the Kliq fall to the bottom. Razor had enough and socked Christian with a right hand. Diesel and Razor walked off leaving Christian with a foul taste in his mouth.
2nd Match: 3 Way Tag Team Championship Ladder Match
Participants: Road Dogg & Syxx Pac vs Dudley Boyz vs Hardy Boyz
The crowd went nuts for the reunion of the Hardy Boyz who are the masters of the ladder. They also went nuts when Road Dogg and Syxx came down to DX music and did the 4 crotch chop SuckIt! with the X pyro. The Dudley Boyz came down to no reaction but throughout the match there were constant WE WANT TABLES chants.
The match started and no-one made any sudden oves. The three teams just caustiously observed their foes. It was the Hardyz that made the first move when they went for the Dudleyz and started pummeling them in the corners as Dogg and Syxx just stood there waiting till the Hardyz sent the Dudleyz out of the ring. Dogg knocked down Jeff then teamed up with Syxx to nail a double suplex. Then DX went for the ladder only to creamed with chair shots from the Dudleyz. Bubba then went for the ladder but Matt cut him off and sent Bubba into the steps before D-Von hit him in the back with the chair. D-Von realised a chance to grab the belts so he set up the ladder only to have Jeff climb up the other side and pummel him with right hands. D-Von then blocked a right hand and superplexed Jeff from the top of the ladder to the mat below. That got some more HOLY SHIT! chants going around. As D-Von went back up for the belt Syxx nudged the ladder and D-Von landed stradling the top rope, gasping for air as he may have damaged his testicular area. Syxx then dropkicked D-Von off the ropes to the floor.
Dogg then cut Bubba off with a pumphandle slam and then DX did a mockery of the GET THE TABLES! thingy the Dudleyz do. They set up two tables next to each other on the outside but the Matt came around and took Dogg away into the barricade. Syxx turned around and Jeff Came running around the barricade and splashed into Syxx.
Back in the ring Bubba brought another table in and positioned it in the corner only to have Matt attack him from behind and knock him out of the ring. D-Von then got up on the apron and gave Matt a stunner like manouver on the ropes which had Matt gasping for air. D-Von got halfway up the ladder when Dogg came back in and powerbombed D-Von off the ladder! Jeff took Dogg down and dropped a leg into his balls. Syxx then hit the X-Factor on Jeff. Bubba was dazed on the outside as Syxx looked to the crowd to see if they wanted him to jump. Of course they said yes and when Syxx went for a top rope flip, Bubba moved and Syxx crashed through the Spanish announcers table!
Bubba got back in the ring but Dogg knocked him down with a Shake Rattle and Roll combo. D-Von then gave Dogg the Saving Grace and started to climb the ladder with Jeff on the other side. But Matt, not realising Jeff was on the ladder, got up and pushed the ladder over, sending D-Von and Jeff crashing through the two tables set up by DX earlier!
Lots of HOLY SHIT and ECW chants going around
Dogg brought a second ladder into the ring and set it up. Dogg,Bubba and Matt where the only men left moving. They all started to climb when from his pants Dogg produced a miniature hammer and cracked Bubba over the head with it. Bubba wobbled and eventually fell backwards crashing through the table in the corner. Matt and Dogg then exchanged right hands. Then from no-where Maven and Christian ran down and pushed the two ladders over, sending Dogg all the way to the outside and Matt crashing into the turnbuckle.
Maven and Christian then climbed the ladders and took the belts!!!
The whole arena was confused as Maven and Christian walked back up the ramp. But before they could get away Razor Ramon and Rhyno knocked them down and left the belts in the ring.
Paul Heyman came down and said he had a plan on Friday Night Explosion with what to do with the vacant titles.
As the teams went back to the dressing room they recieved huge ovations from the fans, acknowledging all the pain and suffering they went through in that match.
Match time: 19m 21s
WINNERS: None (vacated by Paul Heyman for future plans)
Then ring anouncer Roger Walker informed us of a dark match coming up between Val Venis and Ron "H20" Waterman.
Match 3: Singles Dark Matchup
Val Venis vs Ron "H20" Waterman
Pretty basic stuff here.Venis won with the Money Shot
Match time: 4min 48s
WINNER: Val Venis
We now are in the presence of Paul Heymans office and he is talking on the phone. As soon as he hangs up, DX, the Hardyz and the Dudleyz barge into his office demanding to know what is going on with the tag team titles. Heyman calmed all three teams down and said that on Friday Night Explosion it would be DX vs Dudley Boyz vs Hardy Boyz vs Maven & Christian in a four corners match for the tag titles. None of the teams were pleased but as Heyman said "Thats the way it is".

Notes: Everyone started after Bundy from the bell, but Bundys large size managed to knock everyone away. Immediatley the brawl spilled out all over the arena; the ring,the crowd,backstage,up the ramp,at ringside. Billy Gunn went right for Maven and pummeled him for a while before he was sandwiched by Bundys into the guard railing. Bundy went for a pin but it was broken up by Rhyno. Bundy got to his feet but was GORED into the ring steps!
HOLY SHIT chants ringing around the DC arena. Rhyno should have gone for the pin but instead turned around and was creamed by Maven with a chair.
Buff Bagwell was dominating Holly in the corner but Holly nailed Bagwell with the Alabamaslam to become the Hardcore champ for about 5 seconds.
Instantly 8-Ball smashed a letterbox over Hollys head from the top rope and 8-Ball became Hardcore champ.

It was a fairly average matchup. There were HUGE RAZOR chants going around which put off RVD and Y2J who were also used to crowd support. So many near falls but after RVD had been given the Unprettier and Y2J was tied up in between the ropes Razor seemed poised to get the 3 after a Razors Edge to Christian but Tatanka came in and hit Razor with the chair. Y2J untangled himself from the ropes and crawled over Razor and covered him for the 3. After the match Tatanka stood on the ramp smirking at Razor who was bleeding pretty badly.
