JOHNNY B SAYS

DC: "LV's Grimiest" Keith Rosenthal was the High Roller of last cycle. He won $80 in cold, hard cash for Anthony Dudick of New York because of the activity level in the HRL! That's one of our special leagues which will appear on an upcoming webpage listing which leagues compete for the Hardcore and American titles, which do not allow wrestlers to transfer in, etc.

Another online feature to look for very soon is the publishing of our hold values! (Obviously, a federation's values will only be listed after all of its leagues have been processed.) If your bulletin takes several days to arrive by mail, this new system should allow you more time with which to choose strategies.

With these and other surprises on the horizon (both on- and off-line), 2005 is looking to be an exciting year to compete in the IWA!

 

WORLD CHAMPION

NBT: Don Baldwin (MOL), who manages his own career out of Michigan, edged VBB: Manloaf (YCL) for the Iron Federation before using his perfect 501 to claim the World Championship! Don takes home a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches or 100 free matches.

 

U.S. CHAMPION

Eric Dudick of New York won his choice of a large, engraved plaque or 25 free matches when DC: Death Threat (SFL) scared off the competition with his 500-point strategy. Nice work!
