HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES

David Hodnett of Virginia is entering three of his DAL wrestlers into our Hall of Fame this cycle! Wyldsoul (1,177-177-34, $1,615,600), Omen (1,112-131-35, $1,377,400), and Malakai (1,092-132-38, $1,392,600) must all bid a final farewell to friend and foe alike. Omen would particularly like to give a shout out to Arsenal, whom he will remember as his most fun opponent, and tell him that he enjoyed every match and every drop of blood that was spilled.

RWS/DFP: Duke Ken is also retiring this cycle. He built up a record of 2,191-414-54, and collected a total of $3,334,200 in imaginary earnings. His manager, Cody Behrend of Texas, will receive an engraved plaque for the occasion!

 

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION

The CS Kid, drawn by Cody SchibiACE: The CS Kid (UFL) had an unstoppable 501-pointer last cycle, which he rode all the way to the game's top prize! The conquest gives manager Howie Sandberg of New York his fourth World Heavyweight title this year, and he makes IWA history in the process, as it is an unprecedented achievement. The victory also marks Howie's eighth World singles title overall. Incredible!

 

U.S. CHAMPION

"The Smoking Pope" Garett Guzman of Kansas armed TV champion (: Salvador Dali Lama (ABL) with a perfect 501-point strategy, and he used it to win this $60,000 title! Garett now gets his choice of an engraved plaque or 25 free matches.

 

KING OF THE RING

Adding up the values of hold positions 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 13, and 15 in the strategy of each battle royal winner led us straight to EDGE/NME: IWA's Number 1 Talent (MWL) and his 278 total (he had 501 points when counting all 15 holds). His manager, Steven J. Deane of Nebraska, wins the choice between an engraved plaque and 25 free matches! The league battle royals used hold positions 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 12, and 14.

 

AMERICAN CHAMPION

EDGE/NME: Rogue Warrior: Talon (ASL) relied on his 500-pointer to keep this championship belt around his waist, but had to resort to using point flow to turn back CTI: Faithful Misery (AAL). Talon's manager, Steven J. Deane of Nebraska, adds 10 free matches to his winnings!

 

ASIATIC CHAMPION

This $25,000 purse was awarded to 4REICH: Chico Violencia (JDL), who had a perfect strategy total of 501 points! His manager, Anthony Dudick of New York, will receive 10 free matches for the win.

 

HARDCORE CHAMPION

Anthony Dudick of New York picked up another 10 free matches by winning this title with 4REICH: Nazi Low Rider #1 (HWL), who had a 500-pointer! CTI: Vendetta (TDL) lost by point flow.

 

METROPOLITAN CHAMPION

Steven J. Deane of Nebraska helped EDGE/NME: Rogue Warrior: Talon (ASL) retain possession of this coveted title by providing a 500-point strategy! Since this is the fourth time in 2009 that this champion has hailed from the ASL, Steven wins twenty-five free matches. Simply outstanding!

 

CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPION

Reckless Rob Vicious (UEL) used his "Reckless Dive" to fend off Jason Litton of Louisiana's CFH: Allister Fiend (WEL), and earned himself $25,000 in imaginary money! He also won 10 free matches for his manager, Alan Pate of Illinois. Both wrestlers had 499-point strategies.

 

FEDERATION PLAY-OFFS

Although SYNDICATE: B.K. Brawler (RSL) also had a 501 total, the CS Kid was able to keep the Iron Federation title within the confines of Howie Sandberg's New York war room. However, he gladly traded it in once a World Heavyweight opportunity presented itself. Howie also claimed the Bronze Federation honors, thanks to ACE: "Killer Shark" Kyle Havok (BWL) and his 500-pointer. In the Steel Federation, Rob Bream of Pennsylvania gave ILL: Luscious Larry Lawrence (PML) an unbeatable 500-point strategy of his own. EDGE/NME: IWA's Number 1 Talent (MWL) took the Gold Federation belt home to Steven J. Deane of Nebraska, who formulated his 501 total. Dennis Mooney of New Jersey pocketed 25 free matches by coaching SITH: Darth Avatar (NSL) to a stellar 501 points in the Diamond Federation. The Jade accolade went to 4REICH: Chico Violencia (JDL), who received a 501-pointer from New Yorker Anthony Dudick.
