HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES
After nearly a decade in the JIL, Night Hawk has decided to retire from the IWA. Billed as "the only true Creature of Darkness" in the league, the masked wrestler from China used his control over the shadows to fight his enemies. He used the darkness to prey upon the hunters -- the evil that would run rampaged through the league. In his time there, he fought alongside many of the league's heroes using his patented finishing moves known as the Nightmare and the Darkside Massacre. Founder of the stable the COD (Children of Darkness), Night Hawk would eventually join forces with another long time JIL "face," The Rebel, to form the SD (Silent Darkness) stable and the Brothers of Darkness team. Together, they formed a group that would show that actions do speak louder than words. Though he won his fair share of titles, Night Hawk's main goal was always to protect what he considered innocent, over everything else. Once again alone, towards the end of Night Hawk's career, it was shown that he did have a past, and it was soon to start catching up with him -- one that would be forcing him out of the ring, and back to a life he had all but forgotten. Though Night Hawk refuses to divulge his past, he assures that it makes him stronger in a battle he knows is to come. And though he has no plans to ever return to the wrestling ring, he warns all that prey on the weak: he will be watching. And as long as Night Hawk is around... there will be a Nightmare... waiting... for yooouuu...! (Night Hawk's career was handled by Kenneth Irwin II of Mississippi.)
Known affectionately to fans as the Three Amigos, Russell Overstreet (1,156-314-83, $2,273,800 *9), Frank Coleman (1,217-319-113, $2,437,500 *8), and Darrell Rucker (1,138-366-96, $2,371,600 *7) are retiring from the ASL. Their manager, Paul C. Low of Maryland, will receive one engraved plaque for each of his former grapplers!
LNR/HMW: Dark Angel (WSL) is also entering our Hall of Fame this cycle. Under the watchful eye of his manager, Sir Strong, he amassed a record of 2,116-471-76, with $3,649,900 in imaginary earnings and 15 stars.
Our final retiree this time is AM: Primetime Punk (CLL). With stats of 1,029-163-22, $1,719,300 in the bank, and 21 stars, he's done manager Nathan Fann of Tennessee proud! His most recent claim to fame was winning the IWA-wide Prairie title during the May cycle.
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION
KRUPT/A*: KuKu the Psychotic Neurotic (BGL) instantly moved up from the Cruiserweight to the Heavyweight division with a little help from his perfect 501-point strategy! His manager, "Kannibis Kid" Derek Blom of Canada, wins his choice of 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches.
John Durrani of Connecticut earned an engraved plaque or 25 free matches for providing EDGE: Judas Travellar (NDL) with an unstoppable 501-pointer!
KING OF THE RING
This prestigious title ended up in the hands of CAST: Maddog Dick Jackson (ICL), who had a 277-point total when we added up the values of the holds at positions 1, 2, 5, 8, 9, 11, 13, and 14 in each battle royal winner's strategy. His manager, Frank Snow of North Carolina, can now choose either an engraved plaque or 25 free matches as his reward! Hold positions 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 12, and 15 were used for the league battle royals.
wWw: Mike White Lightning Moore (BRL) of North Carolina won this title's $25,000 purse, along with 10 free matches! His strategy was worth 501 points.
John Durrani of Connecticut was awarded these 10 free matches after coaching EDGE: Mad Deltoid (NDL) to a perfect total of 501 points!
CAST: Pit Boss (ALL) had to edge out CTI: Shadow Assassin (DDL) in the battle for this $25,000 title. Since manager Steven M. Shotliff of Minnesota provided the winning 500-pointer, he wins 10 free matches!
The MRL was again home to this champion, just like last cycle, so Ronnie Wagoner of North Carolina will receive fifteen free matches instead of ten! He armed MDWC: "Wild Eyed Southern Boy" Casey Smothers with a perfect 501-point strategy.
KRUPT/A*: KuKu the Psychotic Neurotic (BGL) took full advantage of the BGL's final cycle as a rookie league. He used his Neurotic Neckwhip and KuKu Klutch (not to mention his perfect 501 total) to win this title's $25,000 in imaginary money, plus 10 free matches for "Kannibis Kid" Derek Blom of Canada!
After missing out on the Iron Federation title by point flow last cycle, CTI: Viper (YLL) revised his strategy, and this time it was his turn to do the out-flowing! Joshua Haight of Wisconsin helped him edge Æ: The Unholy Terror (IML), CAST: Extreme Street Hustle Tim A. Maple (XPL), CAST: The Entrepreneur Benjamin C. Washington (MBL), and Æ: Donnie Allen (NGL). KuKu the Psychotic Neurotic took the Steel Federation belt over Metro champ MDWC: "Wild Eyed Southern Boy" Casey Smothers (MRL) and CAST: Hellbent Peter Houston (CCL), then went on to win the game's top prize! All three wrestlers had 501 points, as did Gold Federation champion EDGE: Mad Deltoid (NDL), who is owned by John Durrani of Connecticut. The Asiatic Champion had to defeat American Champion wWw: Mike White Lightning Moore (BRL) by point flow. Nick Jones of Ohio picked up fifty free matches by winning the Diamond Federation with ZOMBI: DJ Skee (LOL) and the Jade strap with ZOMBI: Cyssero (KSL)! Both had 501 points, and so did our new Bronze Federation champion, ZOMBI: Pauly Ramo (BWL). He's managed by Chad LaBombard of Michigan.
NATIONAL CHAMPION, IWA-WIDE REGIONALS
CAST: The Stroke Billy Oakes (GRL) managed to hold onto his Mountain regional title, so Randall Reedy won 10 free matches. Then Billy secured the National title with a 501 total and earned Randall his choice of an engraved plaque or an additional 25 free matches! Randall also took ownership of the Eastern title when CAST: Razor Ace (AFL) edged out wWw: Bloodaxe (NAL). Each had 500 points. CAST: Katy Perry (GRL) claimed the Northern region for Randall with a 501-pointer. His wrestler CAST: Heavenly Body Heather Nova (GRL) also had a perfect score, and used it to edge EDGE: "Have Mercy" Jesse Katsopolis (NDL) for the Pacific region. What a showing by the Michigan-based manager! The remaining regions went to...
The $40,000 Ladies' World Championship went home with CAST: "The Black Widow" Brianna Trueblood (VVL), who had a strategy worth 500 points! Her manager, Anthony Dudick of New York, gets his choice of an engraved plaque or 15 free matches. Michael D. Pepple of Massachusetts led COVEN: Vicious Vicki Valon (LLL) to the Queen of the Ring crown, then guided COVEN: Knockout Kelly Bundy (LLL) to the Ladies' U.S. championship! She had to edge out Star Laur, who also had 499 points. The Ladies' National title went to EDGE: Ruby Soho (MDL). Jonathan Akers of Texas coached her to point flow victory over both COVEN: Dynamic Dian Parkenson (LLL) and Æ: Alice Michaels (FFL). Each had a 499 total. Michael Drake of New York kept the Ladies' tag straps in his trophy case with another 516 team total! This time his winning wrestlers were Æ: Brain Busters Betty and Brittney (VVL). CAST: Eco-Goths Samantha Manson and Liz Viscious (MDL) picked up the Ladies' U.S. Tag-team belts for Randall Reedy of Michigan. Taking the World Six-woman honors were CTI: Dawn Marie Sexy D, Star Laur, and "Double D's" Debbie Dollars (FFL). Managed by Mike Carver of Pennsylvania, they had to edge out ZOMBI members Carol the Bar Maid, Drunk Debbie Stevens, and Tipsy Tammy Stevens (VVL). Joseph Schaffer of New York watched proudly as CAST: Toothless Theresa, Malicious Mandy Manchester, and Dogface Debbie Dorchester (MDL) won U.S. Six-woman gold.
WORLD TAG-TEAM CHAMPIONS
Two teams ended up having to split the prize money for these titles, due to an unbreakable draw. Vampiro and Rob Van Dam added another line to John Gabriel of Pennsylvania's resume, while Scott Argent and Hal Aurum represented for Kevin DiFranco of New York.

WORLD SIX-MAN CHAMPIONS
The play-offs for these belts ended in a five-way unbreakable draw. Drunken Rocket kept Garett Guzman of Kansas's name on the titles. Maverick Ninja won a piece of the pie for Jonathan Akers of Texas, and Insult Jock provided the comic relief. He's owned by John Durrani of Connecticut. Daniel Petty brought his ZOMBI members to the party, while Keith A. Maple (also of Ohio) invited his CAST mates. The KRUPT/BTK trio belongs to "Kannibis Kid" Derek Blom of Canada. Scott Bernes of Ohio teamed up with Mike Carver of Pennsylvania, and they saw their CTI grapplers receive $10,000 apiece. All 10 teams in the standings had 521 points. The team from the KKL managed to stay on the list!

(IIL).
TOP 10 LEAGUES
Based on the number of matches, the most active leagues for the August cycle are listed below. The New Blood League continued to dominate, topping the list for a ninth consecutive cycle! Because the active wrestlers in the Noble Savage League had the best average strategy total, their managers can choose to take two matches for $1 next cycle instead of paying our regular prices. The UWL missed the special price by less than a point.
