HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES
Considered by many to be one of the most mysterious and dark wrestlers to ever step foot into a wrestling ring, Morbid Terror paved a wave of destruction through league after league until finally arriving in the competitive ECL. Somewhat controversial, his mystique, along with the ability to make "things" happen due to his connection with evil forces, made him a wrestler not many looked forward to facing -- that, and the fact he stood close to 7' tall and was just over 300 pounds. Terror's true intentions were unknown, but he served the Circle of Tyrants for many years, unopposed.
Soon after arriving in the ECL, someone would challenge Terror's level of brutality... the wrestler known as Euronymous. The two giants had a bloody, brutal feud that lasted for quite some time, even when they became stablemates. However, the mutual respect they had for one another finally ended the bloodbath, and they formed the destructive tag-team known as "The Titans of Terror." The two monsters looked as though they could not be stopped until a well known tag-team, "The Twin Brothers of Destruction" Fire and Ice, openly challenged them. It was considered by many fans to be a dream match which did not disappoint. After it was clear that there were no true winners in this battle of giants, the four of them would form one of the most powerful forces known to the wrestling world: The Unholy Alliance. The group would last for some time before disbanding.
A six-time ECL League Champion, along with being a former ECL Universal Champion and Universal Tag-team Champion, Morbid Terror's success was evident, and he was considered by many wrestling critics to be one of the most dominant wrestlers in the long history of the ECL. His appearances in 2009 were few and far between, finally leading to his retirement in 2010. Congratulations are in order for his manager, David Mitchell of Canada, who led Terror to stats of 1,348-534-179, with $4,341,700 in imaginary earnings and 46 stars.
A Scandalous Domination, Inc. Event: The retirement of SDI: President Platinum Chanel. With a record of 1,008 wins, 443 losses, 76 draws, and 25 stars, it is now time for the IWA's best technical wrestler to finally hang up his boots. President Platinum began his wrestling career in 2005 in the HTL, but has since ventured into the ASL, BBL, APL, ABL, and returned to the ASL, where he wrestled his final match. In his breathtaking career, Mr. Chanel has held 5 league championships, 3 TV titles, and 21 regional straps. This success came from backbreaking work on his part, as this man had never missed a cycle!
On his entry into the IWA Hall of Fame, Platinum had the following to say: "This is an honor that I have worked my entire career to achieve, as finally my dedication to perfecting my craft has paid off. Platinum Chanel is a Hall-of-Famer now! It has been my pleasure to antagonize the fans as one of the most hated heels in the world for years, as I always made sure that you got your money's worth. In your heart of hearts, you all know you loved me... and I loved you all, too. When my manager/boss/friend Jason P. Brass VII discovered me, I was an international supermodel, and we crafted the persona of Platinum Chanel to near flawlessness -- the looks, the body, the skill, the women... none of it happened by accident. Now it's time for me to take the business acumen I gleaned from JPB7, and the $10 million retirement bonus he gave me, to start the Platinum-Banks Modeling Agency with my longtime friend, Tyra Banks. But, wrestling will always be in my heart. I've had some heated rivalries in my career with some awesome athletes like the Latino Loverboy, the Bullet Butch Starr, Midir, and even with my co-worker, Justin Drysdale, but whether I won or lost, no one ever had an easy time in the ring with 'The All-American Sex Symbol.' Now it's time to break out of the Platinum Chanel cocoon and allow Brayce Chandler to spread his wings, but I will still remain scandalous! SDI or DIE!"
Platinum's manager, Sirree A. Raysor of North Carolina, will receive an engraved plaque to commemorate the occasion.
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION
Thanks to his perfect 501-point strategy, SW/IT: Satan Smith (TCL) was able to overpower our other federation champions and claim the game's top prize. That means his manager, Matt Yunick of New York, gets to choose either 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches! Nice job, Matt.
CTI: Enforcer Shane Douglas (MEL) defeated all other league TV champions last cycle, and thus won either an engraved plaque or 25 free matches for manager Joshua Haight of Wisconsin! Shane's strategy was worth 501 points.
KING OF THE RING
It's true -- CTI: Kurt Angle (WWL) is our reigning King of the Ring! We found the sum of the values of hold positions 2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 12, 13, and 15 in each battle royal winner's strategy, and Kurt's 273-point total came out on top. His manager, John Gabriel of Pennsylvania, gets his choice of an engraved plaque or 25 free matches. Hold positions 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11, and 14 were used to determine the outcomes of the regular league battle royals.
World Heavyweight Champion SW/IT: Satan Smith (TCL) decided to take full advantage of his perfect 501-pointer, and used it to gain this $25,000 payday. That means his manager, Matt Yunick of New York, wins an additional 10 free matches!
Garett Guzman of Kansas earned these 10 free matches by guiding PSY: Sickboy (MEL) to point flow victory over DDT: "Pretty Boy" Paul Pratt (CFL)! Each wrestler had a 501-point total.
Winning this $25,000 title was CTI: Phil A. Delphia (GRL)! Mike Carver of Pennsylvania came up with his strategy, which was worth 500 points.
CTI: Phil A. Delphia (GRL) won another 10 free matches for Mike Carver of Pennsylvania by picking up this belt with his 500-pointer. Good going, Mike!
Missing out on this $25,000 title by point flow last time only made California Executioner (BGL) that much more determined to win it, and manager Robert Coplin of California came through for him with a winning strategy! Robert won 10 free matches for his efforts. Losing by point flow this time were Shane Van Zane (UEL) and IT: "The Enforcer" Gabriel King of the BTL... Will they follow in California Executioner's footsteps?
Matt Yunick of New York picked up the Iron Federation's 25 free matches with SW/IT: Zagan (HWL). He also led Satan Smith to the Bronze Federation championship, which turned out to be just a stop on his way to the World Heavyweight honors! PSY: Sickboy (MEL), CTI: 2 Cigars (HSL), CTI: "The Monster" Tom Welling (MSL), DDT: "Pretty Boy" Paul Pratt (CFL), and CTI: Excellence (IGL) also had 501 points, but lost to Smith by point flow. Æ: Misster Money Shot (ZPL) used his 499-pointer to pocket the $40,000 Steel Federation purse. He's managed by Anthony Rodriguez of Alabama, who also took home the Gold Federation accolade when Æ: Travis T. Spivey (FSL) edged out DDT: "Two Finger" Jeff (DAL), NME: Tony "Two Times" Fioli (MPL), PSY: Protovangelian (BRL), Æ: Anthony S. Spivey (TDL), and CAST: Death Spike (NDL).

NATIONAL CHAMPION, IWA-WIDE REGIONALS
Steven M. Shotliff of Minnesota won the choice between an engraved plaque and 25 free matches by leading CAST: Ned the Nerd (GRL) to the Pacific regional title, and then the National Championship! Ned was sporting a 501-pointer. Taking the remaining regional titles were...
NME: Tipsy Tammy Stevens (VVL) claimed the Ladies' World title, and won an engraved plaque or 15 free matches for Chad LaBombard of Michigan. Then she re-teamed with Carol the Bar Maid and Drunk Debbie Stevens, and the three were able to retain their World Six-woman straps! PSY: Tupelo Honey, Ruby Soho, and Strawberry Fields (MDL) also had a perfect 521-point team score, so Jonathan Akers of Texas got to share in the celebration. Tupelo and Strawberry then set their sights on the Ladies' tag belts, and won them by point flow over CAST: Katy Perry and Heavenly Body Heather Nova (LLL)! The Queen of the Ring crown went to NGAA: Rydia Stormer (MDL), who is managed by S. Daniel Stunes of Arkansas.

TOP 10 LEAGUES
Based on the number of matches in each, the most active leagues for the January cycle are shown below.
