WORLD, U.S., KING OF THE RING

World Champion

VIRUS: "Mr. Theatric" Sergio Busquets (NSL)
Randall Angel of Louisiana; 501; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches

Randy and Ricky Angel exit their limo at IWA Headquarters, and are quickly greeted by the VIRUS crew. Past World Champions Frank Jay Belcher III, Michael Drake, Mitchell Morrissey, Jim "Hellwig" Gabbard, Michael Giuliano, Joshua Kennard, and Jeremy Nace have arrived with their titles around their waists or on their shoulders. Mitchell Johnson, VIRUS spokesman, leads them toward the HQ, as he made the arrangements for the conference. John Voss trails the group with Keith D. Voss in a tight headlock until Keith finally says, "Uncle." Kyle Queen and Derek Tuttle follow with that look, knowing their time will come very soon.

Just before entering, a random guy runs up shouting, "Angel stinks! Avery for life! Avery for life!" Once inside the building, Angel is greeted by former World Champions Donald Henry, Matt Yunick, Terrance Haggard, Kevin Elrod, "The Game," and Michael Cook.

Kimberly: "Randy, the fans and reporters are waiting. You have to get out there!"

The fans cheer with a standing ovation as Angel enters the auditorium.

Angel: "It feels good to be in front of all of you today under these circumstances. It's been a long time coming. First, I must thank my stable, VIRUS, who has made this stint in the IWA the most enjoyable one yet. You guys are more than stablemates, you're family!"

Random fan: "Avery for life! Avery for life!"

Angel: "I also have to thank my cousin, Ricky, who stood here almost 20 years ago to the day, receiving his World title. We came in together, and will likely leave together. To win this title against the competition from EDGE, IMT, and KDSN, I am proud to be here."

Fan: "You stink, Angel! I love Avery!"

Angel: "We get the point, Avery Fan. I'm not here to claim I'm the future of the IWA, and that the past champs are irrelevant; I'm here to say it's an honor to be a part of the same group of legends that has won this title before me. As I looked at the history of the title, I saw names like JPM, Manning, Bernes, Robinson, Sly, Drake, Guzman, Pesante, Hannibal, Belcher, Haight, Eaves, Maple, Duchaine, and Gargus. I saw guys who have been crushing it recently, like Henry, Chambers, Quintana, Reilly, Sully, Cook, Fazio, Anderson, Yunick, and Konik -- if I missed any names, my apologies. The bottom line is, I'm proud to add my name to this list of champions! This isn't the start of a new era, just another chapter in the long history of this prestigious title! I appreciate everyone who came to celebrate this victory with me!"
