DATELINE – OCT. 19TH, 2001 – PERTH, AUSTRALIA


Road Dogg Jesse James defeats Jeff Jarrett to become the first World Wrestling All-Stars World Heavyweight Champion. 

WWA would last only a year-and-a-half, ceasing operations with a large part of their roster joining Jarrett’s newly-formed TNA. Most notably arising from the WWA experiment was the signing of future star AJ Styles.
