FROM THE MML COMMISSIONER (updated 3/20)
The launch of InterFed has introduced us to the AWL's Captain Misery, Cameron Fate, Kabuki Dragon, and the all-new Unified title between the AWL and the CCL. Today, we see King Phillip as he prepares to give back to the Sheik and the BBL for helping him when those traitors turned their backs on him:
- Glorious Thursdays
Cookie: We wait and see if Necromancer will show up for his match versus Deathz Inferno. The last time we saw Necromancer, he went up in flames; all that was left were his ashes.
Glorious Champion: Deathz Inferno
- Friday Night Mayhem
Bones: How ya doin'?! You know, I'm thee original West Coast gangster, bunny crushing, unstable re-stabilizer, and the REALEST MoOFoO you know. Virus here, Virus there, my money is on HAM. Dude's a bully, even if it's not for a title. I think I want him in a series next. Yo, check out the RevoltX Tournament, featuring our girls from the RWL/MML toe-to-toe, knockin' heads.
Mayhem Champion: HAM
- Saturday Night Main Event
Fantastico: Who asked for the burnt duck? Xalvador took advantage of a distracted Pato, who seemed more preoccupied with the fire surrounding the ring. Newcomer to the league Insane Warrior wins the battle royal and a shot at the Main Event title. Is this traveler the real deal, or was his victory at the B.R. luck?
Main Event Champion: Xalvador Bane
- Terror Tuesdays
King Phillip: New beginnings in the BBL, and we're there from the start. We will unify both leagues, and with the help of the Sheik, I will take down the ROT and get my revenge on Xalvador, the Devil Dogs, and the rest of these traitors.
Terror Champion: Masta Mind

GM Hugh Suck: "We're making our way around the IWA to find the next BIG THING. Join us as we match league versus league, federation versus federation, to build the ultimate feuds. Look around -- there are thousands of IWA wrestlers; separate yourself. Here's a good way: INTERFED! Not only do we set up matches, our OUTSIDER segment has hit the road with us, as well. Watch as Missy Christmas and Elizabeth Nuvi Anni interview talent from coast to coast."

A WORD FROM THE PKL COMMISSIONER
"About a year ago, the PKL was near death, and I, as its commish, made a decision -- a decision to drop the limits. Well, now the PKL has come back to life. There were 100 active wrestlers and 38 cards in the Winter 2018 bulletin. If we can get the PKL to hit 50+ cards for 3 cycles in a row and consistently, then I am confident we can get credit league status like we had in the past. Help me make the Psychotic Kash League great again. Also, I would not be opposed to a co-commissioner to help with contests and match write-ups. Help us make this a REALITY!"
UNL COMMISSIONER REPORT (updated 3/6)
"With the Rumble just around the corner, one has to wonder if the prize will grow beyond its already guaranteed 1.5 million in Imaginary Cash with any last minute entries. Also at the Rumble, this cycle's cover person Anne Spivey will take on Bandile Naidoo for the U.N. Championship. The new prizes being offered in the UNL are officially listed, and next cycle is the first opportunity to take an additional 20 free scrub matches with the match deal. What a great time to consider joining the UNL!"

A-69 Productions, in association with Venom Scott Productions, proudly brings to you... for the first time in history... a "credit" ladies' league.
Introducing the... Vixens United League!
With the women's equality movement stronger than ever before, there is no better time than now to bring this league to you.
The VUL will be in the Iron federation, completing the division in all feds. It will begin with the April cycle (next cycle). The league champion will receive IWA credit, just like in the men's credit leagues, as long as there are 50 or more cards. However, the VUL credit will have no limit, unlike the rest of the credit leagues. So, if the prize reaches $75, then that's what you'll get. (I will personally fund any amount that exceeds $50).
I will be returning to commissioner duties, and have a lot of ideas to make the VUL great. Not only will I be the commissioner, but I have enlisted one of the best commissioners in the game today, Venom Scott, as co-commissioner. I will remain commissioner for at least one full year, and could be signed on for much longer. A lot of things will be discussed between Venom and me, and I am always willing to listen to any ideas managers may have. The plan is to make the VUL one of the best leagues in the game.
Usually, we need at least 10 managers to commit to get a league started, but something tells me that won't be a problem. Just email Kim to let her know you will be joining, or post it on the IWA Dungeon.
There will be an 8-wrestler-per-manager limit for now; that may change down the road. There will only be new wrestlers, with no transfers allowed; this will be in effect for at least the first year. I will be placing 30-40 scrubs in the league for easy wins, as well.
Also, during the first 3 cycles, battle royal entries will be 2-for-$1.
So, to recap...
- Name: Vixens United League
- Federation: Iron
- Starts: April cycle
- Status: Ladies + credit (with no limit on the prize)
- Limit: 8 wrestlers (for now)
- Wrestlers: All new/no transfers (for at least the first year)
- Commissioner: Keith Maple (feat. Venom Scott)
- Battle royal entries are 2-for-$1 the first 3 cycles.
So, commit to the VUL, and let's make history together!
MONDAY NIGHT WARS
"The Monday Night Wars are coming to the IWA! Relive your favorite moments, and create brand new ones, in this league based on the WWF, WCW, and ECW during the peak years of 1995-2001. From the minds of Adam Sullivan, Mike Cook, and Andy Konik comes this next-level concept league, featuring an economic system and ratings competition in which 3 separate commissioners run 3 separate promotions competing for brand supremacy in a single league. Please take a look at our flier and give it strong consideration, as we believe that this could take IWA gameplay to a whole new level."

IT'S THIS LEAGUE OR NOTHING
"If there's one thing managers in the IWA love to do, it's talk trash. Whether you like to write your own promos, be a part of a commissioner-driven, TV-style report, or boast about your IWA Report hits -- each manager wants to be the best.
"Introducing the Winner Take All League. In this league, each manager will carry 10 wrestlers, no more, no less. There will be a point system throughout the year with manager rankings. At the end of 17 cycles (one year), we will crown the winning manager. What does the winner get? The accumulation of ALL commissioner prizes throughout the year. It could be OVER 100 FREE MATCHES AND OVER A MILLION DOLLARS IN IMAGINARY MONEY! On top of that, you can say you beat other managers in an even arena.
"Points will be awarded for all title accomplishments and also for submitting trash talk, including best trash talk of the cycle. The battle royal will be worth points based upon the number of participants. There will be point multipliers based upon the number of cards. If the league has the highest strategy average in the entire game, there will be point multipliers. It will pay to be active, both in terms of matches, trash talk, and careful consideration of your strategies.
"We are hoping to start this league next cycle in the Bronze Federation -- but you know the deal: we need 10 managers to start. If you are interested in playing, please email me at margatemotion followed by the @ symbol and then gmail dot com. Once I have 10 managers, we will be ready to go. We will take MORE than 10 managers, as well, but need 10 at a minimum. We ask that if you start the year, you commit to an entire year of playing.
"We look forward to seeing you in the WTL!"
MAYHEM FIRES FAKE NBL COMMISSIONER TO REGAIN CONTROL
"You read that right, folks! Arguably the very best commissioner this game has ever seen has reclaimed his place atop the NBL, and will once again be in the driver's seat as I return this league back to its rightful place among the very best in the business. This year, I will be starting off big and bold with a $2 million dollar tournament along with the return of the Money in the Blood tournament, which will see one of our superstars earn a shot at any Mayhem title they choose and a cool $500K and 25 free matches as icing on the cake! Our first PPV of the year, There Will Be Blood, goes down in cycle #171, so sign up today and be a part of this historic resurrection, the likes of which has never been witnessed before. For those of you new to the game, I have also created an exclusive NBL Proboard page which acts as a real-time extension of the league and includes updates, news, results, trash talking, and more. Transfers are always free, as long as you are active the same cycle, and all new managers will receive 5 free matches just for signing up. Just email Kim, and she will notify me that you are all set to join the action. 2018 WILL BE MONUMENTAL for the NBL, so DON'T MISS OUT! See you ringside!"

SPECIAL EDITION OF THE IWA RINGSIDE MAGAZINE (updated 7/11)
"The Unofficial History of the IWA, as brought to you by the IWA Ringside Magazine. This special edition is loaded with pictures, stories, and nostalgia from over 30 years of the IWA."
For this issue, right click HERE and choose "Save Target As..." (you will be downloading a PDF file with a size of 14.1MB).
The current bulletins from all our leagues are now available on our League Champions page. These PDF files are updated the same day the federation results are posted and include everything the snail mailed versions have, with the added bonus that some feature trash talk pages in full color.
Match results are also available in HTML format from that same page, for those who want a searchable option.
If you want us to continue providing results this way, contact Kimberly and tell her you'd like to "go green." We'll stop sending you printed bulletins, which will help keep our prices low, and you'll get the warm, fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing you just helped save the planet. Everyone wins!

Keep a copy of every email you send us. If you do not receive a reply within 48 hours (not counting Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays), resend your message. Kimberly replies to all legitimate email.
Do not use attachments since your message will automatically be erased BEFORE it is opened or even previewed. This is to prevent the spread of computer viruses.
Finally, make sure to email any matches, strategy changes, etc. at least 24 (and preferably more than 48) hours before your league will be processed.
RANKINGS AND ACTIVITY CHANGES
Your wrestler's number of stars, current point flow, and previous strategy total are now used as additional tie-breakers in our league rankings system. The new progression is as follows: activity status (active or inactive -- see next paragraph), having at least one win, number of wins over losses, total number of wins, number of stars, amount of imaginary money, number of ties, point flow, and strategy total from the previous cycle.
Also, each wrestler must initiate a one-on-one match to be considered active. Tag-team matches, six-man matches, and battle royal entries do not count toward activity. Inactive wrestlers cannot compete for major titles, so if you'd like to see your grappler's name in the IWA Report, don't forget to have him sign at least one singles match!
NEW ROOKIE LEAGUE POLICY
From now on, managers may not create new wrestlers or transfer existing wrestlers into rookie leagues without permission from both the league commissioner and IWA Management. This protection does not expire after a certain number of cycles: it ends when it is agreed that managers in the league are ready to compete against more experienced players.
We hope this change will provide those who are new to the game with a chance to hone their skills on a more even playing field.
The Special Leagues page contains a list of our rookie leagues.
AN EXCEPTION TO OUR STABLE INITIALS POLICY
Our policy against changing stable initials after a league has been processed, but before The IWA Report has been published, failed to address the special nature of the World Wrestling League. Since this league does not allow stable initials, managers are prevented from gaining recognition for their group on an IWA-wide basis should they win a major title.
Attaching stable initials in The Report alone should have zero impact on in-league angles and storylines, since the WWL doesn't even use them (and by "them" we mean stable initials; the WWL certainly uses angles and storylines!). Because we are also able to afford our snail mail players the same option, we see no reason to prohibit managers from having Report-only initials in this league.
Several members of the WWW stable pointed out this shortcoming in our policy, although it just as easily could have been any other stable had its wrestlers won major titles from that league. We're glad this special circumstance occurred at the beginning of the year since it allows all groups to start on equal footing. (Remember that the January issue of The IWA Report actually lists the major champions from the final cycle of the previous year.)
NEW POLICY FOR CHANGING NAMES AND/OR STABLE INITIALS
Effective immediately, wrestlers may only change their names and/or stable initials at the time their league is processed. As usual, Kimberly has been too nice in honoring requests, and we feel the situation is getting out of hand. Allowing these changes to occur between bulletin mailings can create confusion, and leave managers who choose to play via snail mail feeling "out of the loop" or like less-valued members of our wrestling family.
We want to use the Internet to provide conveniences for all who play our game, but that must be balanced with keeping the emphasis on the league bulletins -- where the action is! When wrestlers are permitted to change these attributes between bulletin mailings, it makes online activity just as important as league activity; it's as if time doesn't "pause" between bulletins #34 and #35 like it should, but instead continues on in some arena that exists only on the Internet. That's obviously not fair to our snail mail players.
So from now on, wrestler information must remain a reflection of what is printed in the league bulletins. This should ensure that everyone -- whether online or not -- will be on the same page. You can decide for yourself if that was intended to be a pun. :)
