JOHNNY B SAYS

Manager David Silliman suggested that things might look a little less cluttered around here if we didn't point out every time someone retained a major title. The change should sometimes allow us to use larger fonts, as well.

What do you think of his idea? Fill out the ballot included with your league bulletin, and send it back to us with your matches and strategies for next cycle.

Speaking of next cycle, watch for Stablecade's triumphant return!

 

HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES -- engraved plaque

Anthony Ibrahim of Kansas

"Superstar" Anthony Cassidy (GWL) 1,861-46-23, $2,606,800, *8
"Superstar" Shaun Cassidy (GWL) 1,047-60-13, $1,822,400, *6
Anthony is a former SHL International Champion who finished in third place for the I Quit and Texas Bullrope titles at the 2018 Specialty Championships. During his career, he won several battle royals, several GWL regional belts, several GWL TV titles, and held the GWL title many times, as well.

Shaun retires as the reigning champion of Alabama, Delaware, New Jersey, and North Dakota. He also won several regionals and battle royals in the GWL, and held the TV tag-team straps with another Hall-of-Famer.

We wish them both the best as they enjoy a well-earned retirement.

* The National Weather Service has issued a severe flash flood warning for the Jade Federation and all of the IWA. *

Gerald "Macho Man" Robinson: "I have a gift for all the members of the IWA!"

Johnny B: "That is really nice of you! How thoughtful!"

Gerald reaches into his bag and pulls out life jackets.

Johnny B: "What is the meaning of this?"

Gerald: "Well, Johnny, these are life jackets. It seems the IWA has been awash in the tears of those complaining about my success --"

Johnny B: "Now, wait just one minute!"

Gerald: "Three World titles in a row -- I'm in rarified air! Last time, I dumped those 'other' promotion's titles in the trash, but these titles are valuable! Show 'em, Kim!"

Kimberly comes out, pulling a wagon featuring Gerald's last three World titles.

Gerald: "Would you look at that! I'm single-handedly keeping the IWA's belt supplier in business! And business is important these days! I hope everyone is paid up on their flood insurance, because I'm coming for four in a row!"
