WORLD CHAMPION

Thanks to his 500-point strategy, "Triumphant" Troy Simon (LSL) was able to win the Steel Federation title, then parlay that into a World Championship for manager Stacey McBride of Missouri! Troy was awarded $300,000 in imaginary earnings, while Stacey gets to choose either 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches. Congratulations!

 

U.S. CHAMPION

HATE: Frozen Fire (THL) won an engraved plaque or 25 free matches for Shaun McPeck of Illinois when he edged out fellow TV champions WWW: "Loathsome Legend" Lance Thorn (IIL), ACE/EAGLES: Hardcore Dawkins (LSL), LPPF: Harley the Hammer Flanagan (BWL), ACE: Always Right Sean Hannity (PML), and VU: Duce Davis (RYL). Impressive!

 

KING OF THE RING

Tony Ibrahim of Kansas earned an engraved plaque or 25 free matches by coaching DX: Triple H (NAL) to this title! Adding up the values of hold positions 1, 2, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, and 14 in the strategy of each league battle royal winner proved that his 272 total was worthy of the crown. Hold positions 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 15 decided the order of elimination for our regular battle royals.

 

ASIATIC CHAMPION

Picking up this $25,000 purse was EDGE: The Gigolo Jim Ross (CFL), who had a 499-point strategy! His manager, Neel LaBar of Virginia, receives a well-deserved 10 free matches.

 

HARDCORE CHAMPION

ACE: Stone Cold Steve Austin (HWL) displayed his Pure Greatness by defeating our other Hardcore league champions and keeping this title in the hands of Bob Dippy from Pennsylvania! Steve had to use point flow against VU: Jason Riehle (RYL), who also had 499 points.

 

FEDERATION PLAY-OFFS

Reigning Hardcore Champion ACE: Stone Cold Steve Austin (HWL) continued to display his Pure Greatness by adding the Iron Federation to his winnings! Bob Dippy of Pennsylvania supplied his 499 total. Trading in the imaginary $40,000 and non-imaginary 25 free matches he received for taking home the Steel Federation, and ending up with the IWA World prize instead, was Stacey McBride's "Triumphant" Troy Simon! Jeff Annable of Canada led EDGE: Moon Warrior (BRL) to the Gold Federation honors. He had 499 points. Michael Eaves of Mississippi picked up his 12th Diamond Federation belt (a new record!) with the help of ACE: Celtic Tiger (LBL), bringing Michael's career federation title wins to 33 (also a new record!). In the Bronze Federation, LPPF: "D-Bola" Frank Fina (BWL) edged Asiatic Champion EDGE: The Gigolo Jim Ross (CFL) to take the prize for Anthony Dudick of New York. Both wrestlers had a 499 total. The Jade Federation champion was LPPF: Nick Kearns (TPL). His manager is Gregg Boyle of Maryland.

LADIES' TITLES

The Smooth One Jeff Manning of Ohio coached EDGE: Aunt Flo (VVL) all the way to the Ladies' World Championship! He wins an engraved plaque or 15 free matches for providing the 499-pointer. Jeff also took the Ladies' U.S. title, using EDGE: Brenda "Bring Da" Payne (VVL)! LPPF: Awkward Curves Dizzy Denise Hamhock (VVL) brought the Ladies' National honors home to Keith A. Maple of Ohio. Her strategy was worth 499 points. WWW: Powerpuff Girl Chelsea (FFL) won the Queen of the Ring title for Darrell Brewer of Alabama after edging out fellow Powerpuff Girl Alisha (LLL).
