Capcom Wrestling Association (CWA), also known as the Capcom Professional Wrestling Association (CPWA), is a coalition wrestling federation formed in the 1980s. CWA first appeared in the Slam Masters series, which is also part of the Street Fighter series alongside the Final Fight series.
Slam Masters seriesEdit
During the boom of professional wrestling popularity in the 1980s, several wrestling organizations were created all over the world, many of them being fierce rivals. To solve their conflict, eight organizations combined to form the CWA, led by Victor Ortega, their first champion.
One day, Ortega suddenly vanished. He was considered to be the axis of the sport and his unexpected disappearance caused the CWA to enter an age of confusion and disorder. The BWA (Blood Wrestling Association), a dark underground wrestling organization, chose to take advantage of this opportunity and began moving. With "Muscle Bomber = Destiny of the Strongest" as the theme, CWA decided to hold a world tour called the "Crash Carnival" to decide the new leader of the CWA in a tournament.
After the tournament, Victor Ortega shows up and challenges the winner, leading to another tournament to decide the leader of CWA. It is unknown who won the tournaments.
- Alexander the Grater (シープ・ザ・ロイヤル? Sheep the Royal) - A former rugby and American football player turned wrestler from Melbourne, Australia.
- Biff Slamkovich (アレクセイ・ザラゾフ? Aleksey Zalazof) - One-half of the "Hyper Cannons" tag team from Kiev, Ukraine. A former student of Haggar, he and Gunloc served as Hugo's opponents SFIII: 2nd Impact if his tag team partner was Ryu, Necro, or Gill. He also seems to know Zangief (name dropping him in his losing quote) and appeared at Eliza Masters's birthday party in Street Fighter Alpha 2. He is also mentioned in Street Fighter V Volcanic Edition: A Visionary Book as a part of its character chart.
- Black Widow (ブラック・ウィドー?) - A masked wrestler from Hanover, Germany who revealed herself to be female. One-half of the "Slam Masters" tag team with Haggar that challenges Hugo if Elena is his partner in SFIII: 2nd Impact. According to Yoko Harmageddon's Japanese SFV profile, it is revealed that Yoko was forced to retire from pro wrestling years ago due to hurting her neck and waist in a match against her.
- El Stingray (エル・スティンガー? El Stinger) - A quick and dynamic luchador from Acapulco, Mexico. According to El Fuerte's Japanese SFV profile, both luchadors were trained under the same teacher, Meteorito Jr.

- Gunloc (ラッキー・コルト? Lucky Colt) - One-half of the "Hyper Cannons" tag team from Miami, Florida who trained alongside Biff at Haggar's gym. The relationship was tarnished after he got into two separate fights with both Cody and Haggar after hitting on Jessica, Cody's then girlfriend and Haggar's daughter. Like Biff, they wrestled Hugo and his male tag team partner in SFIII: 2nd Impact. In Blade's ending in the arcade version of Street Fighter: The Movie, the Shadaloo Trooper was revealed to be Gunloc. The ending is considered non-canon, but in Blade's SFV profile, it is heavily hinted that the two characters are one in the same. Due to English specific changes to his profile by Capcom USA, he is also rumored to be Guile's brother, something Blade's SF:TM ending outright stated. Gunloc is also mentioned in Street Fighter V Volcanic Edition: A Visionary Book as a part of its character chart.
