WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION

Our final World Champion for 2008 was WWW: Kamden Ryker (CWL), managed by Cameron Hinkley of Maine! He had to fight his way out of the Gold Federation and then overcome the other federation champions to finally claim the 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches for his manager. His strategy was worth a perfect 501 points!

 

U.S. CHAMPION

Taking home this prize of an engraved plaque or 25 free matches was Anthony Dudick of New York! He managed LPPF: Clenched Fist (NAL) to point flow victory over fellow TV champions ACE: "The Bad Guy" Brian Agony (HSL), ACE: The Red (RCL), ACE: VP of Talent Virgil Riley (MPL), WWW: Street Hawk (CWL), LPPF: James "The Neckbreaker" Forlanini (NSL), ILL: Librarian Willie B.

KING OF THE RING

ILL: The Legend (ICL) picked up this engraved plaque or 25 free matches for Jason P. Miller of Kansas! When we added the values of hold positions 1, 3, 4, 7, 9, 11, 12, and 14 in the strategy of each battle royal winner, his 275-point total (499 overall) was unstoppable. The regular league battle royals used hold positions 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 13, and 15.

 

AMERICAN CHAMPION

This $25,000 title went to ACE: "Disturbed" Demento Destiny (OSL). His manager, Michael Giuliano of Connecticut, earned 10 free matches for providing his 500-point strategy!

FEDERATION PLAY-OFFS

Jason P. Miller of Kansas won the Iron Federation honors with ILL: Hell Personified (UFL), who had a 499. He also held onto the Bronze strap, this time using ILL: Orion Supreme (HSL)! Losing by point flow was ILL: Over Confident Jerk (WCL), whom Jason also manages! Both had 501 points. EDGE/LAD: Demented David Lin (PPL) brought the Steel Federation glory home to Jeff Annable, who resides in Canada.

After edging ILL: Self-Righteous Schmuck (TDL) and ACE: "Wild One" Willie Agony (CLL), both with a 501, Kamden Ryker decided to trade in the Gold Federation's prize of $40,000 and 25 free matches for the IWA World Heavyweight Championship! Conquering the Diamond Federation was ACE: Send the Pain Below (RCL), managed by Howie Sandberg of New York. He had a perfect 501-point total. The Jade Federation strap went to LPPF: Deathmatch Celebrity Johnny Gomez (PKL)! Keith A. Maple of Ohio led him to victory over ILL members Precious Moments Bunny (THL) and the Legend (ICL), who also had 499 points.

 

NATIONAL CHAMPION, IWA-WIDE REGIONALS

Cameron Hinkley was the "Maine man" last cycle, winning in not only the World Heavyweight division, but also the National division!

LADIES' TITLES

Losing the Ladies' World Championship by point flow last time only made ILL: Anita "Lotta" Payne (VVL) more determined, and this time she won it! Her manager, "The Smooth One" Jeff Manning of Ohio, gets his choice of an engraved plaque or 15 free matches, since he formulated her 500-point strategy. Jeff also managed to hold onto the Ladies' U.S. title, this time doing it with ILL: "Misery" Sharon Payne (VVL)! She had 499 points, as did reigning Queen of the Ring LPPF: Knockout Specialist Rebecca Streets (LLL), who is managed by Keith A. Maple of Ohio. ILL: The TSuenami Sue Norris (VVL) and S4C: Lula Rae Klumpett (FFL) had the same 8-hold total, but lower overall strategy totals. Keith paired Rebecca with stablemate Bloody Assault Jessica Lee Richards and watched them pick up the Ladies' tag straps! They edged out ILL: Powerpuff Girls Ashley and Kasey (MDL). CB: "Perfect Ten" Jen Carfagno and Christi "Got It All" Paul (FFL) also lost by point flow, but they reunited with Rudi "Baby Got" Bakhtiar and reclaimed their World Six-woman titles! Congratulations to W.P. Mills of Wisconsin, who gave them their 521 total. The Ladies' National belt had to be shared by LPPF: Talia Adams (LLL), managed by "StableKing" Eric Sickler of Virginia, and LPPF: "Droppin' Jaws" Magdalen Ginter (LLL), managed by Anthony Dudick of New York. ILL: Powerpuff Girl Kasey (MDL) and LPPF: Natasha Adams (LLL) also had 499 points, but lost by point flow. Eric teamed his LPPF: Veronica Adams with Anthony's Magdalen and soon both managers were also sharing the Ladies' U.S. Tag-team straps! Then they added Natasha Adams and tried for the U.S. Six-woman titles, but ended up losing to COT: Bregg Goyle, Strawberry Shortcake, and Love Me Some Lil' Debbie (MDL), who are managed by Mick Garig of Louisiana.

 

WORLD TAG-TEAM CHAMPIONS

Due to an in-league error, ACE/TBOD: Fire and Ice (ECL) were entered in the running for these titles, and they ended up winning them for Michael Giuliano of Connecticut. He can choose either an engraved plaque or 15 free matches as his prize. Had it not been for this situation, the champions would have been LPPF: "The Big Mo" Anthony and "NY's Hardest" Eric Dudick (NSL), who are managed by Anthony Dudick of New York, and the number 10 team in the standings would have been New England Patriots #1 Fan and the Portuguese Godfather (LBL).
