HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES -- engraved plaque

Calvin Harrell of Virginia

YETI: Wonder Woman (SHL) 1,014-74-13, $1,660,700 *15
Born of man and ancient god, Wonder Woman has carved a warrior's path throughout the IWA. She competed in the GWL and captured the league championship before moving to the SHL, where she would become a stalwart opponent to the villainous undertones that threatened to seize control with an iron grip. She captured the league championship on several occasions, and became the first woman to hold that championship as well as the coveted International Tag-team Championships with her Justice League teammate, Aquaman. She has accomplished many things during her tenure in the halls of the IWA.

"It has been my pleasure to represent not only the SHL, but also the IWA on the global stage. I've fought alongside some of the greatest heroes in the wrestling world, and faced some of the toughest monsters ever to set foot in an IWA ring. I want to thank Commissioner Captain Jones for making the SHL fun and exciting. Without his valiant effort to improve the league for everyone -- heroes, villains, and ordinary people -- the SHL might not exist today. I take leave, leaving the SHL in the capable hands of my compatriots in mystery, Aquaman, Hawkman, She-Hulk, Storm, and so many more. It has been a pleasure competing in the SHL, the home for heroes. Thank you, all!" -- Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman joins former partner The Thing in our Hall of Fame, both members of the international stable YETI, a popular organization birthed out of the faltering pages of The United Fan Favorites and Wild West Warriors. She continues her campaign against the forces of villainy throughout the world, highlighted by her exploits in Detective Comics and cinematic adventures. Many fans throughout the world have taken to social media to thank her for her time in the SHL. Giving them hope for a new day, a new generation of young and powerful women point to her as a symbol of justice, honor, respect, and character, in a world that has lost its integrity scope. She will be missed in the SHL ring, but surely not forgotten by the outpouring of fans everywhere and from every walk of life.

 

WORLD, U.S., KING OF THE RING

World Champion

VIRUS/LOR: Kaos Knight (STL)
John Davis of Tennessee; 501; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches

After winning the World title, the referee raises an exhausted Kaos Knight's arm in victory. He then hands Kaos the title belt, which he rudely snatches away and begins showboating with to a chorus of boos. Kaos's manager, John Davis, then joins him in the ring. They shake hands as Kaos whispers something into Davis's ear before exiting the ring and walking to the back. Davis is handed a microphone and begins to speak:

"Give it up for your IWA World Heavyweight Champion... Kaos Knight! (The crowd boos.) Yeah, he figured that's the reaction he would get, which is why he wanted me to let each and every one of you know that you are all a bunch of stupid idiots! Quite frankly, you people don't deserve to share this moment with him! Now, as far as I go, I think I deserve to brag a little bit, because not only do I manage the World Champion this cycle, but I also manage the United States Champion as well! IMT, you'd better take notice, because the infection is spreading, and there is no stopping VIRUS! Rest assured, at the end of the year, we will be #1!"

Davis tosses the mic down and exits the ring.
