GVWA - Galindo Video Wrestling Association
HISTORY: The GVWA started in 1998 when it's founder, Reverend Steve Galindo, changed all the wrestlers in a mediocre WCW wrestling video game to people he knew. This eventually led to more characters, as Galindo added actors, deities, and historical figures. This became an obsession for Galindo and his close-knit circle of friends, who could now see what might happen in a hardcore three way dance between themselves, Hitler, and Abe Vigoda. Each week, the GVWA would have its own television show, GVWA DEVIANCE, and Steve would write out the results which would be passed around Phoenix and Tempe, Arizona with much delight.
The once a month pay-per-views, with such purposefully cheesy sounding titles as THANKSGIVING SLAMFEST, GROUND ZERO, and IMMACULATE DESTRUCTION, features such legendary (to about four people) matches as a four way LAST MAN STANDING championship match between God, Satan, Charles Manson, and The Choir Boy (renegade altar boy gone BAD from an episode of Night Court) and Yoko Ono versus Neil Diamond in a hardcore match. What started out as a simple time waster became a massive creation with rivalries and plot lines and title changes.
Steve was heavyweight champion three times and God was champion four. Ed Wood, being a transvestite, was the women's champion for four days. The Mexican Championship was a title that only Mexicans could hold. Similarly, only the deceased, religious figures, or originally created characters (such as Dirty Sanchez the luchador and Ass Kicker the masked avenger) could fight for the Savior Championship. Andy Kaufman was the savior for eight days before being beaten by Steve's now deceased dog Dude.
For reasons unknown, the GVWA stopped at the beginning of 2000. It has since remained dormant until a few weeks ago. While unpacking into his new home, Steve found his old, dusty N64 and decided to start it all over again with new wrestlers, returning wrestlers, and all the results posted RIGHT HERE!
So get ready for the TRIUMPHANT RETURN of the GVWA! It's the way that wrestling SHOULD be ... fun, pointless, offensive, violent, and incredibly stupid!
