JOHNNY B SAYS

IWA wrestlers now have an imaginary gender! If you manage a female wrestler in a predominantly male league, or vice versa, please let us know so our battle royal commentators can get it right. Our thanks to manager Donald Henry for the great suggestion.

Next cycle, and only next cycle, you can remove up to 20 losses from your wrestler's record by paying $25,000 per loss! Neatly print the following on a piece of paper: "Drop 20 losses from my wrestler, ID #123" (choose from 1 to 20 losses, and use your wrestler's ID number instead of 123). Separate the request from your trash talk by skipping some space, and include the paper with your league matches. You may deduct losses from as many of your wrestlers as you wish, but each must have the necessary funds. Remember that removing the maximum of 20 losses will cost your wrestler $500,000 in imaginary money.

Also next cycle, we unmask the final champion of the Unknown Wrestler League, award his or her manager an engraved championship belt and 25 free matches, and get the next exciting round underway! Don't miss it!
