International Wrestling Association (2008-2010)

On June 28, 2008, Bravo returned to the International Wrestling Association. Here he was involved in an angle were Savio Vega's stable, the Auntenticos, "kidnapped" him, which led to a save attempt by the face wrestlers. Upon being "rescued" Bravo turned on the wrestlers, revealing an alliance with Vega. On July 5, 2008, Vega announced that Bravo would face Chicano in a first contender's match, with the winner receiving an opportunity for the IWA World Heavyweight Championship. He would win this match, after receiving help from the Auntenticos. On July 19, 2008, Bravo defeated Blitz to win the heavyweight championship at an event titled Summer Attitude 2008.

On February 22, 2009, Bravo participated in a show of the Dominican Wrestling Entertainment, based in the Dominican Republic. In this event, he was part of a Royal Rumble to crown the first DWE Dominican National Champion, which he won. On April 18, 2009, Bravo challenged Chicano, the incumbent IWA World Heavyweight Champion, to an unificatory contest. Bravo won, becoming a dual champion. The title was subsequently stripped and remained vacant for a week, before Bravo regained it by defeating Cotto and Ring of Honor's World Heavyweight Champion Jerry Lynn. On May 29, 2009, Bravo defended the titles in a Revolution X-Treme Wrestling card held in Panama, defeating El Cuervo. At a tournament named "Copa Alcalde Hon. Jose Rosario", Bravo dropped the IWA World Heavyweight Championship to Miguel Pérez, Jr.. On October 3, 2009, he won the IWA Intercontinental Championship. Two weeks later, Bravo was booked to defeat Pérez in an unification match, becoming a tri-champion. On November 1, 2009, Bravo and the incumbent WWC Universal Heavyweight Champion, Shane Sewell, performed in a DWE event, with the DWE Dominican National Championship being held up after the creative team booked a no contest. This marked the first instance that the two major champions worked together while holding full recognitions by both promotions.
