WORLD, U.S., KING OF THE RING

World Champion

EDGE: USP Atlanta Inmate (JDL)
Michael Cook of Kentucky; 501; $250,000 + 75 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 25 free matches

It's fitting that an inmate took down the World title, as many across the IWA might say that the current stable scene is just as oppressive. Over the last few years, we have witnessed the stables at the top continue to build towards the arms race we see today. It's time to break that trend, though, and send the foundation of these power stables crumbling to the ground.

Six managers have a vision to reestablish the balance necessary for a fair and competitive landscape. At the start of 2019, we will be here to offer salvation, and will help guide the IWA to a brighter future.

We are the Society Of Salvation: Michael Cook, Robbie Blood, Randy Angel, Derek Tuttle, Gerald Robinson, and Adam Sullivan.
