HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES

Retiring into our Hall of Fame this cycle is a long-time veteran of the game, LOD: Red Eagle Indian! He made his IWA debut in June of 1994, in the SGL against IWA journeyman Eric Darkstrom, whom he wrestled to a time limit draw. His career then saw many ups and downs before finally hitting a hot streak that landed him an offer from the legendary LOD stable (Legion of Domination). Together with Eric Lindsay's Sting and Fabulous Felix Rodriguez, he was part of the greatest six-man team in SGL history. They won numerous titles before the closure of the league forced them all to go their separate ways. Since then he has added to his already impressive resume by winning the IWA World Six-man title, two IWA-wide regionals, as well as being a part of the 2006 Stablecade champions. He has also held every title that can be won in-league -- from the league title all the way down to the battle royal -- at least once. His legendary career has taken him to the SGL, TTL, NSL, LOL, LNL, MML, BTL and UWL. Managed by Andre Sabucco of Texas, his final record stands at 1,056-219-34, with 21 stars and $2,565,600 in earnings. He now retires knowing he has achieved more than he ever could have dreamed of. He leaves behind a trail of broken bodies as a symbol of his greatness.

Also entering the annals of imaginary wrestling is TBZ/IIEII: Silver Fox from the ECL. Under the leadership of Canada's Brick D. Hinkley, he amassed a record of 1,248-755-70 *24, with $4,431,500 in the bank. This 4-time TV champion held a total of 21 regional titles in the OWL, HML, DCL, BRL, UWL, and ECL!

Our third retiree this cycle is ACE: Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels (SPL). John M. Kruse of Indiana led him to stats of 1,128-343-62, with $3,521,300 in imaginary money and 26 stars. John will receive an engraved plaque as a permanent reminder of a job well done!

"The Fallen Messiah" Big Stevie Cool is officially announcing his retirement. Beginning his IWA career as the first FSL League Champion, he went on to hold every title in the league multiple times. A member of some of the biggest stables in the IWA, he has decided to end his career the same way he began it: on his own. He has been called a "mid-card legend" by some in the business, but he played by his own rules, and kept the action in the leagues he wrestled for. He finally settled on the TPL, having competed there for the last couple of years, and -- having done everything he's wanted to do -- has finally decided to hang up the boots for good.

Also announcing his retirement is S.M. Punk, who is also managed by Steve Schrimpshire of Mississippi. He began his career in the TPL, and was a major player from day one. His multiple title reigns were a staple of his career, as he held everything from the league title to regionals to tag and six-man belts to Commissioner titles. He has done it all in a league that has come from the bottom to being one of the most competitive in the game. A protege of Big Stevie Cool, he sees BSC's retirement as an opportunity to join him in outside ventures.

 

WORLD CHAMPION

ACE: Bad Boy Tony (PML), managed by Tony Robinson of Florida, won his third World Championship last cycle! (He also won it in May and December of 2004.) He wins 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches, thanks to his 501-pointer!
