WORLD, U.S., KING OF THE RING

World Heavyweight Champion

EDGE: Master Mang (LSL)
Garett Guzman of Nevada; 501; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches

A capacity crowd fills the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas for a special invite-only World Title celebration. An elderly fan proudly displays a homemade poster reading "Est. 1996" to show his long-standing admiration for the storied history of the Evil Dominion of Godlike Excellence. Other signs, like "NO MSG," "Kung Fu Hustler," and "Rice Rice Baby!" litter the landscape in competition for camera time, as 12,000+ rabid witnesses await the arrival of the newly crowned champion, Master Mang, and his manager. Garett Guzman, flanked by his protege, suddenly appears from behind the backstage curtains. The duo begins to approach the ring as the IWA universe watches intently while trying to settle in. Finally center stage, Guzman calls for the mic and waits for a lull in another round of cheers before making a concise declaration: "2011 is quickly coming to a close, but Armageddon has only begun, and those who stand in EDGE's way will continue to get crushed for their foolish arrogance. This is the year of the Dominion!" Thunderous roars reverberate, after which the rejoicing audience bursts into a spontaneous rendition of "Happy Birthday." A pleasantly surprised Guzman responds in kind by hoisting into the air his fourth career IWA World Heavyweight Championship.
