HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES -- engraved plaque

Jason Frymier of Canada

DOD: The Darkness (ASL) 1,029-175-32, $1,358,500 *4
Formerly known as The Terror of Tanglewood, a member of The Dirty Thirty, The Darkness signed with Jason Frymier at Imagimania XXX and never looked back. He spent 11 cycles wrestling in the BRL before transferring to The Legendary All Star League, and claimed more than 20 tag and six-man titles. He won ASL Tag-team of the Year and Rookie of the Year honors in 2016, and was a member of the DOD, the league's Stable of the Year two years in a row. The Darkness is not ruling out a possible return to the IWA in the future.
