After a decade of exciting fans throughout the world, the Leather Brigade's Jumping Joey Magnolia has decided to join his Mid-Atlantic Express tag-team partner The Spoiler in the IWA Hall of Fame. BRL fans will remember the feud that almost cost the charismatic superstar his career early on: when Mike "White Lightning" Moore broke his leg, almost destroying his knee -- an injury which plagues him to this day. In his long career Magnolia has held many championships, but he lists his 5-time reign as Battle Royal League Champion, United States tag title, and 3-time U.S. Six-man Championship as his greatest accomplishments. He's one of the few that has remained a fan favorite his entire career, and has been a member of the Wild West Warriors and The United Fan Favorites (TUFF). Joey is managed by Dan Harrell of Virginia, a 16-year veteran of the IWA!



Mark and Rebecca Duchaine of Vermont get to share either a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches or 100 free matches, since they managed DEAD: Inferno (GBL) to the top of the IWA! He had to edge both NME: Karnage (WCL) and DHM: Headhunter (MML) to win the Bronze Federation, as all three had a perfect 501 total. Then he faced the other federation champions and -- one by one -- sent them on a free ride aboard the Duchaine Pain Train.



COLD: Blindside (GRL) used his perfectly-executed 501 total to clobber all contenders, gaining $60,000 in imaginary funds. His manager, Brock Wyant of Alabama, wins his choice of a large, engraved plaque or 25 free matches!



Brian Kitcher of Florida must be glad he entered his league battle royal. His wrestler, xXx: Bangin' Bobby Lace (MIL), turned out to be the winner of the KOTR free-for-all, so Brian wins a large, engraved plaque or 25 free matches! The intense contest came down to his wrestler and HUNS: Heidenreich (FWL), who eventually lost by point flow.



Stealing this title from his brother Anthony was Eric Dudick of New York, whose DC: Eye Crust (SCL) won him either an engraved plaque or 15 free matches. He had a 499-point strategy.



Taking full advantage of his 499-pointer, EDGE: Superstar Billy Silva (GRL) defeated the other Hardcore league champions and won an engraved plaque or 15 free matches for his manager, Jeff Annable of Canada. Nice work!



Anthony Dudick of New York decided to hold onto this title for another cycle, and so earns yet another engraved plaque or 15 free matches. This time he used DC: Ravishing Rick Money (NYL) to win the prize, arming him with a 499 total to ensure victory.



CTI/LTL: The Alan (IML), managed by "Ice Cold Enforcer" Alan Handley of North Carolina, handily took the Iron Federation title over NME members Child of Hate (LWL) and Demolition (NLL). In the Steel Federation, CTI: Rock Smokin' Ex-Mayor Marion Berry (RBL) smoked the competition for his manager, "The Intellectual Superstar" Kevin J. Reuter of Florida. The Gold Federation champion was CTI: Death's Grief (OGL). He attributes his success to the leadership of Scott Bernes from Ohio. The $40,000 purse and 25 free matches for the Diamond title went to Louisiana Wildfire (WKL), who has undoubtedly made his manager, Henry Boegle of New York, very proud. The blaze continued through the Bronze Federation, as Inferno took the title and then went on to the World honors. The Jade Federation saw NVUS: The Volcano (JIL) send his opponents running for cover, gaining the prize for manager Steven Henkel of Maryland.



Veteran manager Iron Man Pete Kolomichuk of Ohio claimed not just one, but two IWA-wide regions last cycle! He won the Pacific title with THM: Snake Eyes (GBL), and the Prairie belt with THM: King Cobra (GBL). Both wrestlers had strategies worth 500 points, and they fought to an unbreakable tie for the National prize. Pete gets to choose between a large, engraved plaque and 25 free matches! Taking the remaining titles were...

Scott Bernes of Ohio led CTI: "Dangerous" Dana Deception (WUL) to point flow victory over SC: Perfect Piper Perabo (GDL) for the Ladies' World Championship. He wins an engraved plaque or 15 free matches! Taking the Queen of the Ring honors was NME: Tipsy Tammy Stevens (FFL), managed by Chad LaBombard of Michigan. The Ladies' U.S. champion was CB: Rudi "Can't Touch This" Bakhtiar (FFL), managed by W.P. Mills of Wisconsin. She teamed up with his "Perfect Ten" Jen Carfagno and together they won the Ladies' U.S. tag titles! The battle for the Ladies' National belt saw SC: Sadistic Sarah Lancaster (GDL) win it for Stephen Hite of Pennsylvania, who provided the 499-point strategy. Claiming the Ladies' Tag-team Championships were NME: Al Gore "In a Thong" and Howard Dean "In a Skirt" (FFL), managed by C.J. Frank of Texas. They won by point flow over COT: Venus Diablo and Strawberry Fields (GDL), plus NVUS: Marvelous Mia Torreto and Dana the Destroyer (LLL). C.J. added John Kerry "In a Dress" to the team and watched as they won the U.S. Six-woman belts, edging out GOTH: Matti's Slave Girl, Queen of GOTH, and Gothic Mistress (VVL). Then he conquered the World Six-woman Championships with NME: Lu Lu, Rikku, and Yuna (VVL). They used point flow to defeat DC: Laurel, Cailey, and Ashley California (LLL); SC: Patricia Marion, Carrie Boxx, and Kathryn Boxx (GDL); plus CB: "Perfect Ten" Jen Carfagno, Christi "Got It All" Paul, and Rudi "Can't Touch This" Bakhtiar (FFL).



Wisconsin manager Joshua Haight's team of CTI: Giant Kamala and the Showstopper (FTL) won these $50,000 belts, so he gets to choose between an engraved plaque and 15 free matches! The top nine teams in the standings had a perfect 516 total.

Scott Bernes of Ohio kept his name in this section, this time using CTI: Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjiman, and Trapt (JWL).

Yes, that is a 2 in front of the comma!), TDL (sneaking up from third to second place with an enormous 816 matches), HRL (slipping ever so slightly to third place but still phenomenally active with 775 matches), YCL (jam-packed with 733 exciting matches), LLL, LNL, ASL, WKL, UWL, and AAL/TCL.
