WORLD, U.S., KING OF THE RING

World Champion

OMEGA: The Red Tornado (AOL)
Ben West of Georgia; 501; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches

Johnny B: "Ladies and gentlemen, tonight is a very special night. We are here to not only show our appreciation for the new World Champion, but also to celebrate all the past World Champions of 2014. So without further ado, here they are!"

The former champs make their way to the ring one by one, including such greats as Darkseid, along with his manager, "The Game." Also, the Straight Edge Savior leads his wrestler, The Gravedigger, to the ring to a thunderous ovation! Boris Sidirov and Project Pat Sajak have made their way to the ring, as well.

Johnny B: "Let me now introduce to you the NEW IWA World Champion -- The Red Tornado!"

The fans erupt to ear-shattering levels as one of the most popular wrestlers in the history of the AOL makes his way to the ring. He enters and does his traditional Tornado Dance to the delight of the crowd. These cheers quickly turn to boos as his manager, "Beautiful" Ben West, who is now completely bald, makes his way through the curtains with microphone in hand.

Ben West: "Well, looky what we have here. We have a collection of some of the finest talent this game has ever seen standing in one ring... but yet it feels like something is missing. I could have sworn there were two more World Champions this year. Ah yes, The Smoking Pope could not be here tonight, ladies and gentlemen! Now, now, don't boo too much. He is a very busy man who just so happens to have no desire to give back to all of you FANS in attendance. Let's face it, he's above all of you and he is not afraid to show it. These World titles mean nothing to him other than to add another line to his resume. I highly doubt he'll ever be able to match the Big Mofo, though...

"Now let me drop some truth on you all, seeing as that is the only thing I ever truly say -- the hard truths, that is... the truths that you are afraid to admit, but deep down you know that I am right about all along. Look around you... there are no fans here. There's no music blaring. Hell, there is NOT EVEN A RING! These are just the words I have meticulously painted before you that create the illusion you want to see! It's called imagination! Something that very few of us seem to even have anymore. Now look closer... WE ARE THE FANS. We are the ones being moved by the words. We are the heart and soul of what keeps this game going, and it is time to rise up and have your voices be heard! Don't stand by and watch. YOU HAVE THE POWER to change this game for the better. You can boo me all you like, but I know that what I say is the truth. And you can defend your heroes and keep plugging along and enjoying the status quo, or you can do something about it. I know there's still some imagination left in this game. Leagues like the NWL and LWL are great examples of that. Now it's time to spread that imagination throughout EVERY league in this game! Thank you all for listening, and now The Red Tornado will dance until the lights go out in Georgia..."
