IMAGIMANIA XXXV

Hawaii welcomed 298 IWA wrestlers to 20 of its most beautiful beaches for this massive event, and eight million imaginary dollars were available to those tough enough to outlast their competitors. The final grappler standing at each location below received $250,000 in earnings, and their managers were awarded 10 free matches! Second-place finishers had a $100,000 payday, and third place was worth $50,000.

As if they hadn't been through enough punishment already, the newly-crowned champions then had to face each other in one last battle royal on Waikiki Beach. Wildfire Dan van Love emerged victorious, winning a real-life championship belt (or 50 free matches) for his manager, John Woodford!

Thanks to everyone who made this working vacation the opposite of relaxing -- in a good way. We'll be posting the full results on our website. Watch for them!

JOHNNY B SAYS

The manager known as "The Game" picked up the eighth World title of his career this cycle! In other news relating to majors which award a real-life belt, it was a mere 40 cycles ago that Louis Ruggiero proved he had G.A.M.E. by winning the Gold, American, Metropolitan, and Elite titles (the very first Elite belt) with "The UNnatural" Vic Villain! The battle for this cycle's Elite Championship ended with Tommy Christopher coaching three of his wrestlers to an unbreakable tie. Coincidentally, it's the third time he's held the gold! The only other time the Elite title was disputed occurred in the September 2019 cycle, when Joseph Glen Clark and Robert J. Ratliff watched from ringside as DOD members Catfish Louie and Indian Joe fought to a draw.

We have our Imagimania winners, so be sure to check the list for your wrestlers' names. Manager Zach Gargus requested that we provide the full results of the battle royals, just like we used to do for the Waikiki Beach Rumble. Good news, Zach: they're coming soon to PlayIWA.com!
