WORLD, U.S., KING OF THE RING

World Champion

Senor LuchaSenor Lucha (TDL)
Matt Riley of Massachusetts; 501; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches

(The arena lights go out and a spotlight whirls through the arena as Wall of Voodoo's "Mexican Radio" plays. The beam finally stops in the upper deck, where cheering fans surround Senor Lucha as he shakes hands with IWA President Johnny B, who holds the IWA championship belt.)

Senor Lucha: "Hola, amigos! Before I accept the IWA championship, I need to thank Johnny B for founding the IWA in 1985 and giving us a place to compete for almost thirty years. Muchas gracias! A few years ago, Senor Lucha debuted een the BBL as an unknown rookie who dared to battle the sinister Arsenal, and went on to earn the 2012 IWAR Wrestler of the Year. I was on top of the world, when a devastating back injury at the hands of Power House forced me to retire and call the action alongside Jim Bossy. In 2014, the controversial Johnny Revolution revealed his IWAR, or IWA Revolution, and ordered me to return to the ring to test the NWL's rookies, despite that fact that one bad bump could put me een a wheelchair.

"Si, I could have sulked, but the cheers of the fans fueled Senor Lucha. My body was revitalized, thanks to IWA Hall-of-Famer Rick Challenger's Mexican Yoga, and mi soul, thanks to my thirst for competition. While some flee from tougher leagues, Senor Lucha seeks them out and chose to compete een the toughest collection of leagues een the IWA, the IWAR Alliance (ASL, BBL, BRL, CWL, IWL, MML, NWL, and TDL). Commissioner Will Wizdom's offer to join his revamped TDL meant renewing my feud with Arsenal, and een our first match een over a year, I knocked him out of the Johnny B Cup! If the fates and my Million Peso Knee Lift are willing, Johnny B, choo will hand me the Cup named een your honor this fall. How good ez the talent in the IWAR? Just this cycle, the IWAR Champion, Sasha, captured the Metropolitan title, Funky Fresco took the National title, and four others took IWA-wide regional belts. With an interactive message board, podcasts, YouTube videos, Twitter, Facebook, the IWA Revolution Magazine, and a group of commissioners who work together to give you more, if choo are serious about being the best een the IWA and want to get the most out of your IWA career, then there ez a clear choice, zee IWAR Alliance."

(Johnny B hands the belt to Senor Lucha and hugs the luchador as the fans rise to give an emotional standing ovation to the embrace.)

SL: "Muchas gracias, Juanny B. Before I go, I want to thank the man who always believed een me -- my manager. For 27 years, the IWA championship eluded him, but he knew I had it een me to win it. In the past year he has come under fire by some who dislike him for what he has done, but there are many more who believe een him. I thank them for their support. Some are so devoted they name their wrestlers after him, post about him daily on message boards, and now they have formed a stable named after him called FMR, A.K.A. Fans of Matt Riley. Whenever you see FMR across the IWA, you will know how much they support my manager. It is pretty special to know that one man can mean so much to so many. I know that I am a FMR and choo should be too, for I... am Senor Lucha!"
