Skilliosis, drawn by Cody SchibiKevin Burr of Virginia earned 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches by coaching NME: Skilliosis (BOL) to victory first in the Gold Federation, then in the World Heavyweight contest! His winning strategy was worth 500 points.

 

U.S. CHAMPION

This $60,000 belt ended up around the waist of 4REICH: Necro (NBL), who is managed by Anthony Dudick of New York! Anthony gets his choice of an engraved plaque or 25 free matches for helping his ring warrior overcome stablemate Buffwell (FSL), CTI: "Prime Time" Ari Gold (BHL), ACE: Nemesis (XWL), and the Beast (LBL). Each wrestler had a 499-pointer.

 

KING OF THE RING

ACE: Eddie E. Spivey (XWL) won an engraved plaque or 25 free matches for Anthony Rodriguez of Alabama by having an unbeatable 274 points when we added up the values of hold positions 2, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, and 15 in the strategy of every league battle royal winner! (Those winners were found using hold positions 1, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13, and 14.)

METROPOLITAN CHAMPION

wWw: Diabolical Jerry Savage used his superior 499-pointer to edge out CTI/LEGIT: The Scottish Terrier (NBL), and won this prestigious title for Mark Duchaine of Vermont. Since this is the third time this year that the NAL was home to this champion, Mark wins twenty free matches instead of ten!
