HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES

DX: Evil Wonder Woman of the IIL is retiring! Her career stats end at 1,278-187-41, with $1,928,900 in earnings and 16 stars. She was a two-time Rough House Champion in 2001, a Ladies' National and U.S. Champion in 2007, and she even held the Ladies' World belt in 2004! Her manager, Tony Ibrahim of Kansas, has decided it is time for her to hang it up. He will receive an engraved plaque for the occasion.

Joachim Storz of Germany is entering EDGE: Malcolm Reynolds (JIL) into our Hall of Fame this cycle. His record was 1,236-198-62, and he also boasted $2,570,300 in imaginary money and 34 stars. Joachim will receive a plaque for a job well done!

Oliver Storz of Germany is placing six wrestlers from the EDGE stable into our Hall! From the JIL are former World Champion Snake Badlands (1,551-366-73, $8,390,745, *31), former Iron Federation winner and 1999 Lights Out Specialty Champion Jonathan Winger (1,507-257-67, $3,968,300, *32), and their six-man partner Patrick Bateman (1,066-162-35, $1,968,300, *11). The JRL was home to Deacon Frost (1,375-291-82, $7,400,800, *35), Martin DeVries (1,286-221-69, $3,584,826, *28), and Marcus van Sciver (1,120-148-39, $2,606,800, *20). We will send Oliver an engraved plaque for each of them!

 

WORLD CHAMPION

Tony Robinson of Florida didn't want this belt leaving his stable's headquarters, so he armed ACE: The Great Bad Boy Tony (OTL) with an unstoppable 499-pointer! He wins 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches.

 

U.S. CHAMPION

Zach Gargus of Parts Unknown earned the choice between an engraved plaque and 25 free matches by leading E$T: Humongous Kong (JRL) to point flow victory over LPPF: Bishop Hell of the OTL -- the new league in which Zach is the commissioner!

 

KING OF THE RING

Taking the strategy from each battle royal winner and totalling the values of hold positions 4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, and 14 proved that COT: Reign (HSL) was destined to rule the squared circle! Mick Garig of Louisiana won an engraved plaque or 25 free matches for providing the 272-point KOTR total. The outcomes of the league battle royals were determined using hold positions 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 12, and 15.

 

ASIATIC CHAMPION

ROME: Sgt. Billy Club (MEL), managed by Joshua Haight of Wisconsin, won this $25,000 purse by defeating our other Asiatic league champions. Joshua received 10 free matches!

FEDERATION PLAY-OFFS

Scott Bernes of Ohio picked up the Iron Federation title with CTI: Justin Sane (SML). Steve "The Sandman" Sands (KKL) earned $40,000 for outlasting all other Steel Federation league champions.

EDGE: Trailer Park Boy Cory (LOL), owned by Jeff Annable of Canada, took the Diamond Federation over Hardcore Champion HS: Young Gun Sean Masters (XWL) and FOE: Jo Schmo (FJL). The Great Bad Boy Tony claimed the Bronze honors before moving up to the World prize. In the Jade Federation, LPPF: Dynamite Dave Chapelle (JRL) won big for manager Jason P. Miller of Kansas.

 

NATIONAL CHAMPION, IWA-WIDE REGIONALS

Eric Jones of Maryland took home the Ladies' U.S. strap, thanks to AA: Tatiana-Leyte (LLL). Winning the Ladies' National Championship was COT: Caitlyn Reinhard (FFL), managed by Wade Reinhard of Pennsylvania. Keith A. Maple of Ohio took another stab at the Ladies' Tag-team honors and won them with LPPF: Knockout Specialist Rebecca Streets and Bloody Assault Jessica Lee Richards (VVL)! He also claimed the U.S. Six-woman belts by teaming his LPPF: Gothic Angels #2 and #3 with Nikki Blair (LLL), who belongs to Rob Bream of Pennsylvania.
