WORLD CHAMPION

EDGE: Snake Badlands (QPL) used his perfect 501-point strategy to conquer the Iron Federation, then edged past stablemate and Gold Federation winner Melo (NML) to win 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches for his manager, Oliver Storz of Germany! Nice job.

 

U.S. CHAMPION

Zach Gargus of Parts Unknown picked up an engraved plaque or 25 free matches by leading E$T/HARDCORE: Necro Butcher to an unbeatable 500-pointer in the ASL. This is Zach's fifth IWA U.S. title, which puts him one win away from Jason Miller's record of six!

 

KING OF THE RING

Totalling the values of hold positions 1, 2, 4, 7, 10, 11, 12, and 15 in every battle royal winner's strategy showed that DX: "Mr. Chyna" Tony Laurer (IIL), managed by Tony Ibrahim of Kansas, was the rightful wearer of this crown! He had a high of 276 points, so Tony can choose either an engraved plaque or 25 free matches. The hold positions used to determine the league battle royal outcomes were 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 13, and 14.

 

ASIATIC CHAMPION

HARDCORE CHAMPION
