Many of you know that Shane "Hurricane" Helms began his wrestling career in the IWA, and our game was also home to Hawaiian movie star and pro wrestler Daryl Bonilla. Now another IWA manager has achieved notoriety in real life. David Callaham, known to his friends in the game as Big Brother Stingray, actually wrote the screenplay for the recently released DOOM movie! In fact, if you visit DoomMovie.com and check out his official profile, he lists play-by-mail wrestling as a hobby -- how cool is that? Words can't express how proud we are of his accomplishment. His writing career is off to an incredibly impressive start, and he's another example of the fine caliber of people we have playing our game. We wish David continued success in Hollywood!

WWW: "The Enforcer" Charles Ballard enters our Hall of Fame this cycle with career stats of 1,398-229-66, $2,125,300 in the bank, and 16 stars. He manages himself from Georgia, so that's where we'll send the engraved plaque. CFL wrestlers will undoubtedly miss competing with this IWA great. Congratulations on a job well done, Charles!



WYD: Super Stud Biff Backhand (ASL) first dominated the Gold Federation with his perfect 501, then edged out the Iron Federation champion to win 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt plus 50 free matches for Ian Greaves of New York! Nice going, Ian.
