Days ago at the World of Wrestling’s special presentation entitled Starrcade, the entire world learned of Benny Mouse’s deteriorating health. Benny’s head of security, Rob Amick, revealed to Benny’s daughter Megan that Benny’s health has declined since COVID-19 took its grip on the country.
Amick revealed that he had issued the press release in April promoting the EWA’s return, hoping to incite Benny Mouse to push aside his fears relating to the virus and get back to work. At Starrcade, Benny refused to speak with anyone other than Megan, and when we did see a portion of their conversation, Benny repeatedly asked Megan if she had been vaccinated and if she “would help him.”
Just before the main event, in which Grand Daddy Duxen successfully defended his EWA World Heavyweight Championship, Megan Mouse came to the ring. Megan announced that per Benny’s request, she has decided to put aside her personal goals of conquering the squared circle in order to run her father’s company! With Megan Mouse now in a position of power, the fans were then informed that Duxen’s free pass as champion was over, and that his match against Orton was in fact, the first of a 32 man tournament for the EWA title! Duxen will be forced to defend his championship in every round, and if the title is to change hands along the way, the new champion will also be forced to defend the title!
Additionally, Megan announced that the Elite Wrestling Alliance will return on Monday, July 26th for a brand new season!
Also at Starrcade, The Young Bucks made their debut, attacking Heavy Metal, Metal Head, Splinter and Splidder following the Brothers Metal’s successful defense of the tag titles! Sasha Banks made her EWA debut, interrupting Athena Star’s attempt to retire, challenging her to a match on the season premiere of Revolution! A new Knockouts Champion was crowned as Ronda Rousey defeated Ember Moon… the new champion was then confronted by the EWA’s second draft pick, Asuka!
This afternoon, Megan Mouse revealed to EWA.com’s Chris Hyatt that the tournament bracket — including Rhyno’s first round buy — will be announced in full ahead of the premiere!
Additionally, Megan Mouse revealed the following changes to the EWA roster:
The Elite Wrestling Alliance has granted releases to Ryback, Batista, Ken Shamrock, The Usos, Maryse, Summer Rae, and Eva Marie. These individuals were signed over a year ago, and were never utilized.
Bane, Jake Hagar, Kenny Omega, and Knockouts stars Chyna, Tamina Snuka, and Brandi Rhodes have all signed contract extensions with a clause that states if they do not debut by September, they too will be released from their contractual obligations with the EWA and will be open to seek employment elsewhere.
Additionally, Megan Mouse announced the signings of ‘Hangman’ Adam Page and Sammy Guevara!
