PromotionWorld Wrestling Association (WWA)
Date establishedMay 16, 1991
Current champion(s)Bestia 666 and Damián 666
Date wonDecember 5, 2014

As it was a professional wrestling championship, the championship was not won not by actual competition, but by a scripted ending to a match determined by the bookers and match makers.[a] On occasion the promotion declares a championship vacant, which means there is no champion at that point in time. This can either be due to a storyline,[b] or real life issues such as a champion suffering an injury being unable to defend the championship,[c] or leaving the company.[d]

It was first won by Silver King and El Texano in a championship tournament held in May 1991. The current champions are Bestia 666 and Damián 666.
