PRESENTING THE GENERATION NEXT LEAGUE
Fellow IWA managers and commissioners, my name is Andrew Nichols, Commissioner/Founder of a ground-breaking, innovative, brand new league in the IWA. Ladies and gentlemen, I proudly present the Generation Next League. The GNL is the Future and Reality of the IWA. This league is EXACTLY what the IWA has been lacking.
Generation Next Wrestling will be built from a foundation of all brand new Superstars, no transfers. The Superstars in the GNL will be comprised of both men and women. The possibilities are endless for the Superstars that call GNL home, not to mention the brand new championships that are up for grabs. Superstars will learn to hone their craft while showcasing their talents, skills, and in-ring abilities.
Managers, bring up to THREE of your best Superstars, and represent your stable and yourself individually. Talk trash, sneak attack, cut promos, and earn opportunities through hard work and dedication. Make your mark in IWA history by conquering all that the IWA has to offer.
The GNL will offer 2-matches-for-$1 during the second through fourth cycles, not to mention my commissioner bonuses every cycle for extra incentive. The Generation Next League will be the 10th league in the Iron Federation. I am accepting applications/resumes for a General Manager position; please inquire via email. This position will assist me with the daily operations of the Generation Next League. Email me directly at badracer616 followed by the @ symbol and then yahoo.com.
Please feel free to contact me, as I have an open door policy. Send in all new Superstar submissions to IWA Headquarters. Join today to have a helping hand in IWA history. Thank you for your time.
This is Generation Next!!!

FROM THE MML COMMISSIONER
There's a whole lot going on in the Masked Mayhem League -- new tag and six-man championships on each night:
- Glorious Thursdays
King Phillip: You all know what this gesture means... SHUT UP! The Kingdom provides for one and all here on Glorious Thursdays. All I ask is that you kneel before my greatness. If you like tournaments, look no further. Non-stop tournament action is the foundation on which Glorious is built.
Glorious Champion: Slim Charles
- Friday Night Mayhem
Bones: Down with the King! Down with the King! Yo, take it from the realest mofo in the room, we don't bend the knee for no wacko King. Bring yo feud to Friday Nights, where da fighters come to settle their beef. Fatal Four-Way each cycle to determine the number one contender for the Mayhem Championship.
Mayhem Champion: Paul Taha "Party Animal"
- Saturday Night Main Event
Fantastico: The King and his Lords will always try to eliminate the competition; it's human nature to want to take out the best. You want to see your name up on the next poster? Well, get yourself into the battle royal.
Main Event Champion: Pato!
- Face-Off PPV
Ray Ray Featherfield: Yeah, Booyyyee!!! Thursday, Friday, Saturday, I want it all and then some. Yours truly, the Real Rising Star, takes his show on the road with the Face-Off crew at my side. Who knows what we'll see? After seeing that LuchaGore match, I'm ready for anything.
... you didn't see it? Well, read about it in this issue of Mayhem.

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. :)
