JOHNNY B SAYS

The future is now! The IWA and Extensia Premier Wrestling proudly present the Intense Impact League, the ultimate global league that showcases the stars of tomorrow. Lightweights, heavyweights, female wrestlers, little people... all under one roof, competing for the Universal Heavyweight Championship! You have only one cycle to transfer into this Steel Federation league with your existing record for $2; after that, only new wrestlers may enter ($1 each). Rookies, display your skills in the IIL!

The BWL closed, so we have made the Lethal Weapon League in the Iron Federation our newest hardcore league. This change means that transfers into the LWL are no longer allowed.

On a related note, Kimberly has received several emails recently regarding the fate of champions in leagues which have closed. For the record, if your league closes and you hold a title in the final bulletin, you DO get to compete for major titles that cycle. We hope this clears up any confusion.

Last cycle, we mentioned that Chris Spellman of Illinois had two 516 and 521-point team strategies. Since we became aware of this at the last minute, we weren't able to gather all the information needed to officially award his wrestlers any titles. Further investigation led to the pertinent WWL documents, so we now award Chris' team of Marty Jannetty and Shawn Michaels the IWA World Tag-team championships; the Rockers and the Hurricane the World Six-man titles; Randy Orton and Shelton Benjamin the U.S. Tag-team belts; plus Randy, Shelton, and Matt Hardy the U.S. Six-man championships. Along with those titles we also award Chris the accompanying free matches. Congratulations and once again we apologize, Chris!

 

WORLD CHAMPION

Tony Robinson of Florida conquered the Iron Federation with a perfect 501-point strategy, but decided that BEST: Dean (BWL) should sit on top of the World instead. Tony will receive a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches or 100 free matches!

 

U.S. CHAMPION

Earning the choice between a large, engraved plaque and 25 free matches was Alexander O'Campo of California! He provided Tomb Boy (LBL) with a 500-point strategy, then let the TV champion do what he does best: win.

 

KING OF THE RING

BEST: Dean (BWL) continued to prove he was the best performer last cycle, as he claimed this large, engraved plaque or 25 free matches for Tony Robinson of Florida. Dean cleverly squeezed a lot of mileage out of his perfect 501 total!

 

AMERICAN CHAMPION

NVUS: Mick Foley (ECL) won this prize of an engraved plaque or 15 free matches for his manager, Darrell Johnson of Vermont. The other American league champions didn't stand much of a chance against his 500-point strategy.

 

HARDCORE CHAMPION

In addition to winning the Iron Federation and World titles, BEST: Dean (BWL) was also victorious in last cycle's hardcore battle! His 501 total allowed him to grab this engraved plaque or 15 free matches for Tony Robinson of Florida.

 

URBAN LEGEND CHAMPION

Anthony Dudick of New York picked up an engraved plaque or 15 free matches by leading DC: Highstick Brett Simpson (TBL) to victory over our other Urban Legend league champions.

 

FEDERATION PLAY-OFFS

The Iron Federation champion was Dean, who ended up holding the World prize. James Allen II of North Carolina took the Steel Federation title with NME: Stellar Stan Foxx (SSL). The 25 free matches for the Gold honors went to Mike Dorsett of New York for a second straight cycle. His GOTH: Tosswreck the Terrible (LNL) edged both DC: Unloco (ESL) and TD: Horacio Hernandez (TDL). In the Diamond Federation, CTI: Satanic Servant (NSL) used point flow to turn back NVUS: Mick Foley (ECL) and UKA: Jammin' James (LBL). Manager Andre Sabucco of Texas gave him a strategy worth 500 points. Taking the Bronze Federation was DHM: Ramon Dark (MML), who claimed the free matches and bragging rights for Ronnie Copeland of Indiana. nWo: Big Daddy Cool Anil (TPL) went home with the Jade Federation title, showing everyone what manager Anil Mohabir of New York knew all along.

 

NATIONAL CHAMPION, IWA-WIDE REGIONALS

Our National champion emerged from the Central region with a 500-pointer again. This cycle it was THE OUTLAW: Brady Allen (LNL) who claimed the large, engraved plaque or 25 free matches. His manager is Roger Wano of Oklahoma, who led Brady to a regional point flow victory over last cycle's winner, UKA: Blaspheme (LBL), plus DC: Dizdane (BWL). Taking the other titles were...

Atlantic: DI: Cpl. Punishment (LBL)
edged SC: Blackheart (ECL), both with 500
Dixie: DHM: Hector (HTL)
edged out NBBA: Minneapolis Bad Boy (LBL), both with 500
Eastern: SC: King Butcher (DZL)
beat both CTI: D.O.C. Federal Inmate #02044196-NY (NLL) and CTI: Toxic Flesh (BWL) by point flow
Mountain: Angeldust (LBL)
500 total
Northern: UKA: Chaim Witz (LBL)
held onto the belt with a 500-point strategy, winning 10 free matches for James Nichols of Florida (who also manages last cycle's National champion)
Pacific: Z-Man (MRL)
edged CTI: The Mental Mouse (NLL), both with 499
Prairie: Death Warrant (LOL)
edged out NVUS: Billy Kidman (ECL), both with 500
Southern: Kid Incredible (LBL)
500 points
Western: NME: Funky Flashman (FWL)

 

LADIES' TITLES

Andre Sabucco of Texas won the Ladies' World Championship again, keeping the title in his stable's possession for the third straight cycle! CTI: Devious Donna (FFL) earned him the engraved plaque or 15 free matches with her 500-pointer. IIEII: Big Sexy Kelley Nash (WUL) won the Queen of the Ring title for veteran manager Francis Guy of Massachusetts. He paired her with the Bad Girl Stacey Hall and they won the Ladies' U.S. Tag-team straps! The Ladies' National Champion was NME: Ice Queen Tonya Harding (WUL), managed by Steven J. Deane of Nebraska. She edged her stablemate, Vicious Lorena Bobbit (WUL), and CTI: Strawberry (WUL) for the win. NME: Scandalous Heidi Fleiss (WUL), also managed by Steven, took the Ladies' U.S. title with a 499. She teamed with Prison Decorator Martha Stewart and they won the Ladies' tag belts, just like last cycle. Also like last cycle, they edged out a team belonging to Steven Henkel of Maryland. Even more like last cycle, Henkel's NVUS: Persephone and Artemis (GDL) added Aphrodite to the mix and kept his name on the World Six-woman straps. Probably the most like last cycle, Henkel claimed the U.S. Six-woman championships. We hope NVUS: Dana Lynn Henkel, Dana the Desirable, and Dana the Delicious (GDL) know what's going on, because we certainly don't!

 

WORLD TAG-TEAM CHAMPIONS

The engraved plaque or 15 free matches for these belts went to Jen "Warlock" Bialecki of Wisconsin! Her team of COT: Marky De Sade and Sirius Darkstar (HML) had the best point flow out of the top three teams in the standings, all of which had a 516. Worthy of note is that DC: Dizdane and Anguish (BWL) stayed on the list from the previous cycle.
