We are live in Willowick, Ohio, where the IWA is set to induct 11 new wrestlers into the Hall of Fame. At the podium stands Mike Drake, ready to announce his teammates' retirement.

MD: You know, I've been in the IWA for just under 10 years, and have had some ups and downs. I was once told I was a fluke World Champion by the once mighty JPM, and here I stand a five-time World Champion, five-time U.S. Champion, and two-time National Champion, along with several other championships I've won along the way. I've run small roster and won, I've run big roster and won, but now it's time to scale back and enjoy what could be the ending of a fun ride. I, along with Sly Smith, brought probably the best teamwork to the multi-man scene that this game has ever seen, even leaving EDGE scratching their heads. That teamwork allowed Æ to dominate the stable scene and send some IWA legends packing. I'd like to thank my friend GZ for being part of that teamwork, I'd like to thank TZ for losing his smile, and I'd like to thank EDGE for the competition, as if it weren't for what they were doing, Sly and I never would have accomplished what we did. On that note, I'd like to officially induct Mike Gold, Deadly MD, Death Machine, Z-Man, New Age Punisher, Blade, Mike Legend, Trent Acid, "Prodigy" Mike D., Mr. Drake, and D.K. Drake into the IWA Hall of Fame.

All 11 men are standing around the podium with Drake and receive a standing ovation from the fans on hand. Drake leaves the podium and heads toward the exit, where he is met by a man standing in the shadows of the dark hallway. Drake looks stunned, as he alone saw the man's face, but a VERY familiar voice is heard saying, "We need to talk. It might be time for one more run." Drake and the man walk out the exit into a limo and drive off. As the limo speeds away, the camera zooms in on the license plate, which reads, "S.S."

Joe Adams of Pennsylvania

APA: Ice (MSL) 1,502-296-69, $3,695,500 *26
It is with great pleasure I announce the retirement of one of the best wrestlers to ever grace the pages of the IWA bulletins: Ice -- who, with partners in the MSL, formed the A.P.A. and held every title in that league more than once. Ice has even held the IWA King of the Ring championship, with over 1,500 victories to his credit and 17 battle royal wins, racking up an impressive elimination count of over 100. It is time for this great competitor to go home and chill. Thanks for the memories, best wishes in your retirement, and you will now be known as the newest member of the great IWA Hall of Fame... A.P.A.: Ice.
