HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES -- engraved plaque

Joe Hall of Illinois

UKA: Joe Hall (CLL) 1,075-399-32, $2,556,700 *7

B.C. Empson of Virginia

UKA: Mr. ECL RnR Erich Von Wolf, Jr. (ECL) 1,525-399-100, $3,127,100 *37

Rock 'N' Roll Erich Von Wolf, Jr. enters the IWA Hall of Fame for his second time...

"In the ECL, I have done it all. This year, I beat the blood and snot out of the Universal and USA champions, taking their belts and retaining them until the cowards attacked me, not being men enough to beat me in the ring. I then had the coward who calls himself the ECL commissioner strip me -- ME, the greatest wrestler ever to grace the IWA -- of those two now-tainted titles, tainted by the cowards who now will challenge each other... that's all well and good. The ECL is past history as I, winner of two IWA U.S. titles, several federation titles, a couple of state titles, numerous IWA regional titles, and now the first wrestler ever to enter the IWA Hall of Fame twice, bid you all farewell. To the cowards who worked together to attack me and steal my titles: sleep with one eye open. To my millions of fans: get a life and watch a real sport. The world of wrestling will never be the same, and the reason why is elementary: because without Rock 'N' Roll Erich Von Wolf, Jr.... Mr. ECL... WHOOOOO... there's really nothing to watch!"

Blake Morgan and Gary Cassibry, Sr., both of Mississippi
