Manager's name withheld by request

"The Impact" Dallas Durden (CSL) 1,637-565-56, $2,310,400 *2

DICE: Hollywood Chris Fox (SGL) 1,003-170-26, $1,956,300 *16
After 18 years in the game, IWA veteran Joshua Haight is stepping away from the imaginary ring. "I've had a blast over the last 18 years, and enjoyed sharing stables with a lot of different managers."

Steven Bradshaw of Florida

Armas Archuleta (MRL) 3,099-645-132, $6,191,300 *34
As Mil Mascaras prepares to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, his imaginary counterpart, Armas Archuleta, enters the IWA Hall of Fame. As the Mexican Sensation left Mid-Atlantic headquarters for the last time, he declined to discuss any of his wrestling accolades or achievements, and said he would rather just be remembered as a man who brought the best out of his opponents and did his best to represent the Mid-Atlantic Region with pride. "Adios!"
"Hacksaw" Bane Bradshaw (MRL) 2,427-463-89, $5,402,300 *29
Alongside his partner "Rey Rey" Simmons, Bradshaw terrorized the Mid-Atlantic Region for years as the tag-team known as Dread. Bane would like to take this time to acknowledge both Simmons and long-time manager "The Godfather" Freddie Kong. Without them, none of the success he enjoyed, including a 2011 Cochran Cup, would have been possible. "Deuces, homie!"

Jamie Davis of Kentucky

Terry Tailor (MRL) 1,249-370-101, $2,471,200 *16
Tailor is entering the Hall of Fame alongside his long-time partner and best friend, Armas Archuleta. In his exclusive MRL career, he won multiple championships, enjoyed top-billed feuds, and helped set the standard for the purest league in the history of the IWA. He is leaving the ring to become the new face of the Mid-Atlantic Region League's administration.

Chance L. Collins of West Virginia

BH: Boogie Man (MIL) 3,330-560-129, $6,279,800 *32
BH: Fallen Angel (MIL) 1,755-357-86, $3,733,200 *34
The MIL/IWA cameras focus on the ring, which at this time is dark with nothing but a jack-o'-lantern showing in the middle of the ring. The lights slowly come on to reveal BH: Boogie Man and Fallen Angel in the middle of the ring. Fallen Angel begins to speak: "It is with great sadness that I speak before you today. To some, this may come as a shock, and to others, there will be pure excitement. Boogie Man came into the IWA over 10 years ago and joined forces with the other members of the Brotherhood that I would join years later. We owe a lot to the members before us, and to the ones who fought alongside us (Darius Savage, Gabriel Knight, Siberian Hellhound, and Savage). We carried this name with pride, and will continue to carry it on with us. We both have won numerous awards and titles along the way. Boogie Man won a Mr. MIL tournament; along with this, we each held several league championships in singles, tag, and six-man, not to mention our dominance in the battle royals. Some championships had to be sacrificed to protect the Brotherhood, but they were well worth the sacrifice. We have no regrets in the IWA, and no regrets in the leagues we fought in. Many wrestlers and stables said they would take us out, but none ever could, just like we told them they never would. I personally want to thank Boogie Man for always being there for me, and we both want to thank the Brotherhood members that were there to watch our backs through the years. I will not mention any of our rivalries individually, due to not wanting to leave anybody out, but we did want to say they were fun and we enjoyed the competition. As you all can tell, I am here speaking on both Boogie Man's and my behalf to say it is with great sadness that we are retiring and heading into the IWA Hall of Fame. We do not want to leave, but more urgent matters in our lives have come up, and we must leave the IWA to take care of them. We want to thank the wrestlers, stables, leagues, managers, the IWA itself, and especially all of you fans who have supported us or hated us -- it does not matter which; you have made it fun and enjoyable. We are happy to know that no matter what, when we came out here you were either cheering or booing us -- it did not matter which, just as long as we did not come out to silence. We always said you may love us, you may hate us, but you will never, ever forget us. We will leave here knowing that we are the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be. With that, we leave the great IWA. Thank you!" At that time, Fallen Angel throws the mic into the stands, and he and Boogie Man start to exit the arena. Right at the end of the exit ramp, Boogie Man hands the jack-o'-lantern to a fan wearing his mask and walks off with Fallen Angel as the arena lights go out and the cameras focus on the jack-o'-lantern.

 

WORLD, U.S., KING OF THE RING

World Heavyweight Champion

EDGE: Viggo the Carpathian (SAL)
Mike Dorsett of New York; 501; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches

The IWA Championship Coliseum is filled to capacity as Viggo the Carpathian stands at center ring, having just pinned Iron Federation Champion "Awesome" Aaron Betts to claim the IWA World title. Dressed in full seventeenth century garb, Viggo begins marching around ringside, wild-eyed and raving, as the announcer waits for the chance to interview the new champion. The crowd begins chanting, "Viggo, Viggo, Viggo!" when, suddenly, Arabian music begins to play over the coliseum speakers and Viggo's manager, The Illustrious Ishtar, accompanied by a large security detail, bursts through the entrance doors and makes his way down the ramp toward ringside. Two black-suited security guards hold the ropes as Ishtar steps into the ring and rips the mic from the announcer's hand. Viggo brings the IWA World Championship over and hands it to his manager. The Illustrious Ishtar holds the belt high above his head and begins to speak:

"This... is what our sport is all about! (Ishtar shakes the belt, and the crowd cheers.) The lucky ones someday get to hold this belt once. The great ones will get to hold this belt a couple of times. And now, the ONLY Illustrious manager/wrestler this game has ever seen has held this belt FIVE times! (This draws another round of cheers from the capacity crowd.) And I'd like to dedicate this belt not just to the wrestler that made it possible today... (Ishtar points toward Aaron Betts, still standing at ringside, eliciting confused looks and murmurs throughout the arena) but to all the wrestlers who have spent so much time on their backs, making me look so... Illustrious!"

With that, The Illustrious Ishtar drops the mic and exits the arena with the new World Champion to the mixed cheers and boos of the fans.
