HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES
Records, of course, are only made to be broken. But when you are the first to do something, that accomplishment can never be taken away. Thus, it is with a certain sense of history that the IWA welcomes its first undefeated wrestler into the Hall of Fame. N. Vince Hubble (1,001-0, $1,095,300 *3) has retired from the LOL, citing "the boredom of constant success" as his reason. When asked what actual title victories qualified him to be a Hall inductee, Mr. Hubble produced a long roll of paper. "For starters, my partner and I were honored in the Fall 2009 IWA Report for our maximum point tag strategy by being ranked #8 in the IWA. Then..." At this point, Mr. Hubble received a cell phone call and he had to leave. Attempts to contact him later were unsuccessful. (An engraved plaque will be sent to his manager, W.P. Mills of Wisconsin.)
Our next inductee this cycle is "Wrestling Demon" Sex (AFL). His record was 1,007-214-43, with $1,633,600 in imaginary earnings and 25 stars. Although managed for most of his career by Mike Cook of Kentucky, his contract was won by Tim Zaegel of Virginia at the beginning of 2010 in an OSL contest, so that's who will be receiving the plaque!
UKA/BOC: Tony Hurricane is leaving the CWL (and the IWA) for good. With 1,016 wins, 22 stars, and 45 draws under his belt, yet only 204 losses, he is sure to be missed. He will spend his retirement spending, since he saved up $2,228,700 in imaginary money over the course of his career. Congratulations are in order for his manager, Cameron Hinkley of Maine!
Long-time IWA manager Scott K. Olson of Nevada is putting five of his superstars out to pasture this cycle! The BRL was home to both (: Babyface Brad Monroe (1,122-403-87, $4,437,700 *39) and (: Gorgeous Johnny Mack (1,054-429-100, $3,852,800 *33), while the LBL housed PSY: Young Gun Clint Rhodes (1,005-287-59, $2,891,100 *26). PSY: Jim the Butcher Mulholland (1,072-303-69, $2,727,400 *38) maimed friend and foe alike in the MIL, and PSY: Ragh Bagah Ali (1,105-210-73, $2,599,900 *24) wowed fans at SGL events. These wrestlers have left some very large boots to fill, indeed.
Ending a phenomenal career with 1,010 wins, 366 losses, 114 draws, and 28 stars, SDI's chairwoman, Nairobi James-Stone, will now bring her in-ring career to a beautiful end. Nairobi has graced such leagues as the HTL, BTL, BBL, KSL, APL (where she became the first female TV champion), ABL, and ASL, garnering 4 TV titles and 26 regional titles in her travels, but she has now decided to focus on other aspects of Brass Ventures International -- SDI's parent company. Although she will no longer compete in the squared circle, Nairobi will continue to manage the wrestling career of SDI's owner, Jason P. Brass VII.
Nairobi issued the following statement regarding her recent Hall of Fame induction: "I have toiled profusely to acquire the recognition that I have now gleaned, and, alas, my most vivid fantasy has come to fruition. I have finally entered immortality with my accomplishments now being held in the IWA Hall of Fame. Not too shabby for a little black girl from Newark, New Jersey with dreams of someday becoming a household name. I think I've done that. The leap from the 'hood of Newark to the boardroom of SDI was a hellish one, but my first step towards that leap was when I got involved in bodybuilding to earn cash from prizes. I was, however, beauty and body with a brain, which earned me a full-ride scholarship to Princeton, as well as a Master's in Psychology. Why do you think that Scandalous Domination, Inc. has the BEST ring psychology in the business? There's a master behind them! I never gave up on bodybuilding, and JPB7 discovered me at a competition in Trenton. The rest, to quote a hackneyed saying, is history. I have been the face and the chairwoman of SDI for five years now, and I HAVE NEVER MISSED A CYCLE! I have taken it to you men in the IWA better than most of my male counterparts for half a decade, and I can retire knowing that Chairwoman Nairobi was the most dangerous woman to ever step in a wrestling ring! Though we had to hide our marriage because we knew our foes would use it against us, Grayson Stone and I can finally flaunt our love to the world. I will never leave SDI fully, for I owe Mr. Brass a debt of gratitude, so I will continue to manage him for as long as he decides to stay in the ring. Also, I will be spearheading the new women's fitness division of BVI. It's been a fantastic voyage, and I'm proud that you all have taken this ride with me... SDI or DIE!"
(An engraved plaque will soon be on its way to manager Sirree A. Raysor of North Carolina.)

Taking home both the Ladies' World title and the Queen of the Ring crown last cycle was, fittingly, Æ: Queen of the Revolution (FFL)!

He also picked up the Ladies' U.S. tag straps, using Æ: Duchess Dryken and Lethal Vixen (FFL)!
