World Champion

OMEGA: Project Pat Sajak (JDL)
Ben West of Georgia; 501; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches

Johnny B is in the ring: "Ladies and gentlemen, the NEW IWA World Heavyweight Champion --" Before Johnny can even finish his first sentence, he is interrupted by "I'm Beautiful," and out from behind the curtain steps "Beautiful" Ben West, back from his recent excursion to Egypt. Following him are Project Pat Sajak and "Daring" Dax Janus.

West: "Thank you, Johnny B, if that is even your real name... but I will take it from here. Ladies and gentlemen, your NEW IWA World Heavyweight Champion -- wait, what's this guy's name again?" Dax Janus whispers in his ear. "Oh yes, of course! Project Pat Sajak! Someone give this man his belt already!" Johnny B hurriedly enters the ring to strap the belt around Sajak's waist. "Stay in the ring, Mr. B, and take a picture of this fearsome trio. I am always looking for new pictures of myself to frame on my luxurious golden walls." The picture is taken and the crowd really doesn't care. Dax Janus takes the mic.

Janus: "I see your faces. I see the doubt in your eyes. I see the pain you harbor from years of abuse in this very ring. I FEED OFF THIS WEAKNESS! The simple truth is this: you cannot stop us anymore. We are too powerful, and we will run roughshod over you tired and washed-up wrestlers who are desperately clinging to your past glories. The future is now, and the future will only lead you to doom if you dare stand against us! THE GAME has changed forever, and OMEGA will reign supreme!"
