HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES

The IWA is saddened to announce the death of one of its most unorthodox, yet beloved, stars. Manager Jen "Warlock" Bialecki of Wisconsin informed us that the kickboxing kangaroo known as COT: Jay Jay Thunders passed away of old age last month. Despite harsh criticism from wrestling purists and Indiana mall cops, the "Downunda Wunda" left a legacy as a top star in the BBL for nearly 10 years, going undefeated in 4 series challenges, as well as narrowly being edged for the IWA World title (an amazing achievement for an animal)! With a final record of 1,001-270-43 *23, he has been honored with a posthumous induction into the Hall of Fame. His manager will receive a plaque (suitable for displaying), as well as our condolences.

After more than 15 years, 4 stints in the IWA, and several near-retirements, UKA: Mr. Magnificent J. Montgomery is hanging it up to write his memoir entitled "It's the Way You Lace Your Boots: The Magnificent Montgomery and the Lost Art of Wrestling." He started his IWA career in the original Sterling Silver League in 1987. Montgomery's accolades include feuds with Rick Challenger, Sexy Steven Paradise, Hannibal, and other Hall of Famers including Roy Hammerhead, who point flowed him out of the Millennium Champion contest in 1999. Mr. Magnificent will be best remembered for winning 4 QML World titles under Commissioner Jeff Rice. An engraved plaque will be sent to Jamie Davis of Kentucky for managing him to a career worth writing about.

 

WORLD CHAMPION

Blue Tiger made sure that the IWA's highest honor stayed in Texas for the third cycle in a row by giving TNT/FD: King of Diamonds (MWL) a strategy worth a perfect 501 points! He wins his choice of 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches. Way to go!

 

U.S. CHAMPION

The top TV champion last cycle was PRO: Cosmic Invader (NYL), managed by Tony Robinson of Florida! He had to use point flow against PRO: H.V. Ludwig (MWL), UMI: Iceman (QPL), ACE: Hitman's Fury (HML), and UZI: Kenny Snow (NDL), since they all had 501 points. Tony can now decide between an engraved plaque and 25 free matches!

 

KING OF THE RING

TV: Minnesota Wrecking Crew I (IGL) made Steven M. Shotliff's home state proud by picking up this title. Totalling the values of hold positions 1, 3, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, and 15 in each battle royal winner's strategy led us straight to his 274-pointer. Steven wins an engraved plaque or 25 free matches! The hold positions used for the league battle royals were 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, and 14.

 

FEDERATION PLAY-OFFS

Gregg Boyle of Maryland won the Iron Federation championship with UZI: Kahli Crash (MOL), who edged out UZI: C.H. Austin "Endless" Summers (IML), COT: Socially Distorted Mike Ness (QPL), and EDGE: Chris Coldstone (DZL). Each had 501 points. Gregg also took home the Bronze title, thanks to UZI: Tyrone Spencer (WAL)! He narrowly beat last cycle's champion, PRO: Darkness (NYL), who scored another 501-pointer. Tony Robinson of Florida picked up the 25 free matches for the Steel Federation with PRO: Diamond Dallas (CCL), and 25 more for the Jade strap with PRO: CM Punk (WWL)! Both men had perfect 501-pointers. The Gold title went to King of Diamonds, who later moved up to the World Championship. He had to edge out Steel (NDL), the Fallen Angel (NML), Buff (CWL), and UZI: Goes Bang I (OGL), since they all had a 501 total. MWC: The Super-Duper Star (ALL) won by point flow over WWW: Triple S (ECL) in the Diamond Federation for Steven M. Shotliff of Minnesota. They each had 500 points.

 

NATIONAL CHAMPION, IWA-WIDE REGIONALS

Howie Sandberg of New York unleashed ACE: Hitman's Wrath (HML) upon our regional champions, and ended up with the National title's engraved plaque or 25 free matches! First he had to defeat FOE: "Super Handsome" Handsome Johnson (IDL) and UZI: The Patriot (CSLS) by point flow to take the Atlantic region, since they each had a 501 total. Also gaining $20,000 for winning a region were...

LADIES' TITLES

The Smooth One Jeff Manning of Ohio grabbed the Ladies' World title with UZI: Crabby Patty from the Nati (GDL)! Her 501-pointer earned him an engraved plaque or 15 free matches. Jeff then teamed his Spiffy Tiffany from Queen City with Luke Fletcher of Georgia's UZI: Sunny and Missy Blaze (GDL), and they won the World Six-woman belts with a 521! Sunny also took the $20,000 Ladies' U.S. title, and her sister Sable edged Missy for the Ladies' National Championship. (All three sisters had a 499 total.) Luke had one more trick up his sleeve; he sent Sunny and Missy after the Ladies' tag straps. They won them by edging out last cycle's U.S. tag champions, PRO: The Brunette Bombshell Kimberly and the Blonde Bombshell Becky (GAL), who also had 516 points. Awesome job! The Ladies' U.S. tag straps went to Randy Angel of Kentucky. The teams of SE: Linsey Dawn McKenzie and "Young and Natural" Ines Cudna (FFL), plus UZI: Charismatic Olivia Tyson and the TSuenami Sue Norris (LLL) lost to his UZI: Miss New Booty and Miss Bossy (GDL). He added Miss Laffy Taffy and she helped the pair win the U.S. Six-woman titles! Last, but certainly not least, was the Queen of the Ring championship. Beloved (VVL) proved to be unbeatable for a second straight cycle, and thus won 10 free matches for a very proud Nelson Gomez of New York! We congratulate him on this achievement.
