World Champion

IMT: The Laughing Loser (IGL)
"The Game" from Parts Unknown; 501; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches; manager's 6th career World title

Time & Date: 11:05 PM, January 5th, 2018
Location: The Grand IWA Coliseum, Willowick, Ohio

Moments after The Laughing Loser captured the sixth IWA World title for manager "The Game," IWA reporters caught up with the legend to get a brief statement as he was about to get into his stretch limousine. Of course, "The Game" was as humble and gracious as ever...

"Was there ever any doubt that the day would come where I would once again reign as your World Champion? Of course not. After all, in an era of this sport that is overpopulated with scrubs who make excuses for their failures, there is one constant: 'The Game' will continue to win and dominate 'The Big Three' like no other ever has. And now that I have taken my talents to THE premier faction in this business, IMT, the days of any other stable pretending that they are the best are OVER! So since VIRUS is the only group worthy of our attention, I have a message for them: I hope you enjoy the view of our backsides from second place, because that's about as far as you're going to go this year. 2018 is going to be the year of the Island... and 2018 is going to be the year of 'The Game.' So like I said in another forum, get used to it, because the fun has only just begun..."

And with that, "The Game" stepped into his limo, then slammed the door in the faces of the horde of reporters as they attempted to ask him questions. Without so much as a glance back out at them through the tinted glass, he ordered his driver to leave, and they hastily departed towards "Parts Unknown..."
