JOHNNY B SAYS

Manager Hamilton Ortiz created a Facebook group named the IWA Classic Man Cave, and has been using it to reconnect with members of the IWA family who have been on a break from the game. Due to his efforts, you may have witnessed the return of some familiar faces to your leagues, such as "The Smooth One" and "The Ladies' Man." Now you know whom to thank for being reunited with these legendary players -- and if any of them have taken a title which used to have your name on it, now you know whom to blame!

Also taking the initiative to improve the game for everyone is manager Michael Long, who is hoping to modernize our holds by updating three dozen of the names. See the ballot in your league bulletin to cast your vote! Note that if these changes go into effect, the values of the holds will not be affected.

Players now have three ways to enter our Hall of Fame, thanks to a suggestion from manager John Davis! In addition to amassing 1,000 victories or $5 million in imaginary earnings, wrestlers who collect 50 stars will henceforth be eligible to enter our esteemed Hall.

Lastly, keep those Stablecade entries coming in! Manager Jim Ripka is counting on us.
