WORLD CHAMPION

FOI: "The Franchise" Triple B (NDL) conquered the Gold Federation, then took on the other federation winners in a fierce battle for World supremacy. His 501-pointer proved to have the best flow, so Will Booker of Florida wins a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches or 100 free matches!

 

U.S. CHAMPION

VBB: "The Working Man" Alex Lifeson (YCL) had to use point flow to defeat the Almighty Grammar Man (PML) for this title. Both wrestlers had 501 points. Now manager Billy Donald of Kentucky gets to choose either a large, engraved plaque or 25 free matches!

 

KING OF THE RING

Just like last cycle, a Floridian armed his grappler with a perfect 501, then won both the World title and the King of the Ring crown! FOI: "The Franchise" Triple B (NDL) won this large, engraved plaque or 25 free matches for Will Booker. The eight hold positions used were 2, 3, 6, 9, 10, 12, 14, and 15. The total from those eight positions in his strategy was 274 points, which is only 6 away from the highest score possible!

 

AMERICAN CHAMPION

James E. Corvette led his bodyguard, Mighty Hoss Ponderosa, from the MRL commissioner's office straight to the American title. The 499 total he provided has earned him an engraved plaque or 15 free matches!

 

HARDCORE CHAMPION

Chris Spellman of Illinois' DC: Redemption (JWL) gave a flawless performance in our Hardcore leagues last cycle. His 501-pointer was responsible for the engraved plaque or 15 free matches that his manager will receive!

 

URBAN LEGEND CHAMPION

Anthony Dudick of New York won a second straight engraved plaque or 15 free matches, using DC: Gigolo Jimmy Diamond (LVL) and his 500-point strategy to win this title for the Spring cycle. Nice going!

 

FEDERATION PLAY-OFFS

Manager Billy Donald of Kentucky scored another perfect 501 in the YCL last cycle, and gave it to DI: Billy Kendall so he could win the Iron Federation's 25 free matches. WWW: Junky James (SSL) claimed the Steel Federation championship, edging out both BEST: Mike Ceno (RLL) and CTI: Maniac Minion #1 (PML). All three had 501-pointers, but James Steen of Florida chose the best point flow. "The Franchise" Triple B had to edge out Dimitrios the Traveler (BRL) for the Gold Federation title before he could become World Champion. Both had 501 points. Also with a perfect strategy was Hardcore Champion DC: Redemption (JWL), managed by Chris Spellman of Illinois, who won the Diamond title. In the Bronze Federation, Anthony Rodriguez had EDGE: Mr. Hardcore (GRL) show the competition how they take care of business in Alabama. His strategy total was 499. Winning the Jade Federation honors was WWW: "Kingslayer" Jaime Lannister (THL), who looks to Kevin Araujo of Massachusetts for guidance.

 

NATIONAL CHAMPION, IWA-WIDE REGIONALS

After beating WWW: The Great White Funk (SSL), EB: Doomsayer (DIL), UKA: AntiTrust (PML), Pinky (YCL), and the Pro (LOL) by point flow to win the Atlantic title, GQ: Rev. Johnny Righteous (LNL) had to turn back the numerous regional champions with perfect 501-pointers to win the National prize. The choice between a large, engraved plaque and 25 free matches goes to his deserving manager, John Martin of Michigan! The remaining regions were claimed by...

LADIES' TITLES

HI: Amy "Bad Mac" McClure (FFL) won the Ladies' World Championship last cycle, temporarily ending CTI's reign of terror. Wil Howlett of Pennsylvania supplied her 500-point strategy, so he wins an engraved plaque or 15 free matches! Also under contract to Wil is the current Ladies' National Champion, HI: Mayra Veronica (FFL). She was declared the winner after UKA: Latonya (VVL), CTI: Dracula's Bride Marishka (VVL), MWC: Brandy Dirt (FFL), KKK-X: Missy the Vampire (VVL), CTI: Crazy Crystal (FFL), and UKA: Shaquita (VVL) were eliminated by point flow. They each had a 499! Taking the Queen of the Ring title was LB: Mercedes DeVille (VVL), managed by Frank Snow. He also won the World Six-woman belts, using LB: Kimona, Dragon Lady, and Lotus the Ninja Girl (LLL). Lotus got some help from David C. Welker's WCW: Baddest American Playboy Biker 13th and together they won the Ladies' tag titles for their North Carolina managers. NME: Prison Decorator Martha Stewart and Scandalous Heidi Fleiss of the WUL (who nearly won the belts for a third consecutive cycle), plus the rather disturbing team of NME: Howard Dean "In a Skirt" and John Kerry "In a Dress" (FFL) lost by point flow. KKK-X: "Amazingly Hot" Angela Sweetheart (VVL) claimed the Ladies' U.S. championship for "The Ladies' Man" Nick Dendekker of Canada. She had a perfect 501 total! The Ladies' U.S. tag winners were CTI: Crazy Crystal and Devious Donna (FFL), managed by Andre Sabucco of Texas.
