HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES

Ronnie Wagoner of North Carolina is retiring "Too Sexy" Brian Christopher Lawler (1,000-207-76, $1,911,300 *16) this cycle. Lawler was a house of fire several years ago in the MRL. He is a former MRL United States Champion, as well as a former dominant MRL World Heavyweight Champion. Unfortunately, Lawler's career has been cut short due to an injury he suffered in a motorcycle accident after an MRL house show. He will always be remembered as a brash, confident, cocky yet extremely successful, young, talented performer.

Also entering our Hall of Fame this time are four superstars from the ACE stable who wrestled under the leadership of Tony Robinson from Florida. John Basedow (DDL) amassed a record of 1,430-100-10, with $1,796,400 in earnings and 4 stars. The LLL was home to Daniele Donato (1,084-120-10, $1,426,500 *2), who won both the Ladies' World Tag and World Six-woman titles this year. Leaving the NGL for good is Evil Dr. Will Kirby (1,069-156-29, $1,491,900 *5). Last, but certainly not least, former World Champion (from last year's Summer cycle) ACE: The Great Bad Boy Tony is bidding a fond farewell to OTL friends and foes alike. His final stats were 1,430-226-46, with an imaginary $3,347,400 in the bank and 27 stars. Tony will receive four engraved plaques as a reward for his excellent managerial skills!
