HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES

After over four years of steady competition, Mike Blitzkrieg (PKL) is announcing his retirement into the IWA Hall of Fame. Blitzkrieg joins his old MML partner High Octane. Also retiring is their manager, Philosophy Jones, who was proud to lead these two wrestlers to IWA immortality.

Ending her career at 1,007-173-55, with 25 stars and $2,255,800, is Eric Lindsay of Pennsylvania's Anna "Brown Sugar" Amore'. She began her career in the IML and went on to greatness in the GDL, LLL, and FFL. Anna founded the group Ebony XXX-Press, which spread across the ladies' division. She was very successful in all her leagues, winning numerous titles such as league, television, regional, and tag. Anna has won the United States six-woman titles, and also is a two-time United States tag-team champion. She is proud to have won both World Tag-team and World Six-woman belts in her career. She put nearly a thousand female wrestlers to sleep with her "Brown Suga" sleeper hold. In addition to XXX-Press, Brown Sugar has spent time in great groups like NVUS, LOD, UKA, and IE. One of her favorite quotes was, "We're about to run the XXX-Press train on you." She wishes all of her former opponents the best, saying, "It was fun!"

Johnny Gonzalez of Arizona wanted to pass along the following: "First of all, I would like to thank John Gabriel, Charles Ballard, and the rest of the WWL managers for making the league fun while Eddie was there from day one. Thank you! Now, I'm not going to say a lot, because we all know who Eddie Guerrero was, but I will say this: no one can deny his ability to entertain the fans and, of course, he is and always will be one of my favorites.

"When the World Wrestling League was created, I joined in cycle #2. I saw that no one had Eddie yet, so I chose him quickly and activated him in cycle #3 (February 2005). He won several titles, and in the Summer cycle of that same year, he made his first appearance in the IWA Report by winning the IWA-wide Prairie title (and, yes, I was proud to have won it).

"On November 13, 2005, the world of wrestling was in shock when Eddie Guerrero passed away. I cried -- yes, I did cry. In the WWL, I stopped writing trash talk for him because I didn't feel comfortable writing comments for a wrestler who was no longer with us. My main goal now was to enter him in the Hall of Fame as soon as possible.

"In February '06 he won the IWA King of the Ring, and then the Unknown Wrestler League returned. This was my chance to get double the wins from the WWL and UWL at the same time so I could enter him in the HoF on the one-year anniversary of his death. I even asked the IWA to print his picture with 'Entering him before '06' in several bulletins to hype it up, but his chance to do so flew out the window when he was still not eliminated by that time. This was great because I thought he may be able to win the UWL title. He ended up being the 4th runner-up and one of the last surviving wrestlers in the league, and I'm proud of that. He now had more than 1,000 wins, but I was 3 months away from his second-year anniversary, so I waited.

"Now, the wait is over and I proudly enter one of the WWE's greatest wrestlers of all time, 'Latino Heat' Eddie Guerrero, into the IWA Hall of Fame! I know I speak on behalf of wrestling fans in the IWA and around the world when I say, 'We miss you, Eddie! R.I.P. Viva La Raza!'"

Ruthless Ray is standing in the ring wearing a suit. He looks like he hasn't slept in days and needs a shave.

"What I have to say will not be easy for me." Ray pauses, looking down at the canvas, trying to collect his thoughts. He sighs deeply, then continues.

"My sometimes friend, sometimes tag partner, sometimes opponent The Red Baron has been killed in an airshow accident. He was flying his Fokker Dr.1 to benefit German orphans when something went wrong with his triplane. Some observers thought they saw the upper wing begin to collapse; however, nothing has been proven at this point. Red brought the plane in for a landing, but the muddy field caused the plane to ground loop. The triplane cartwheeled a few times, and by the time rescuers reached the plane, Red was dead from head and neck injuries.

"After sleepless nights and much soul searching, I have decided to retire. The Red Baron and myself have had some excellent battles over the past months, and while there are some great, great wrestlers in the Texas Death League, nobody could push me like Red used to. Thank you for all of your support."

Ruthless Ray leaves the ring to thunderous applause and fans chanting, "Please don't go."

Ray waves to the fans one last time before stepping through the curtain.

ACE: Jack Tors (NYL) and UZI: Acid Techno (HSL) also had a 500 total, but lost by point flow. ACE: Bad Boy Tony (JIL) used his 499-pointer to win the Jade Federation honors, which means he has now won every Federation title in the IWA!
