HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES

The Russian wrecking ball known as WWW: The Notorious KGBeast has decided to hang up his wrestling boots and step away from the squared circle for the last time. Establishing a record of 1,016-273-49 with 17 stars, KGBeast dominated the ring and the leagues that he wrestled in during his 5-year career in the IWA. His most memorable accomplishment was winning the IWA Hardcore Championship on two occasions, as well as just being edged out for the IWA Gold Federation Championship. He also held countless league, TV, regional, tag, and six-man titles. In an interview following his retirement announcement, KGBeast thanked the Wild West Warriors for giving him the opportunity to be a part of a legendary stable, and wished all his stablemates luck in their careers. He also thanked his manager, Cameron Hinkley of Maine, for believing in him and keeping him on the path to the Hall of Fame.

(Those winners were determined using hold positions 1, 2, 5, 7, 8, 10, 13, and 15.) His manager, John Lala of California, gets to decide between an engraved plaque and 25 free matches!
