After securing the Bronze Federation honors with a 500-pointer, ILL: Power Hungry Maniac (WCL) traded in his prize so he could claim the $300,000 IWA Heavyweight title! His manager, Jason P. Miller of Kansas, gets his choice of 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches.



ACE: "Rugged" Randy Sanders (WSL) used his 499-point strategy to overpower our other TV champions last cycle. That means he earned an engraved plaque or 25 free matches for manager Howie Sandberg of New York!



Adding the values of hold positions 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 11, 12, and 13 in each battle royal winner's strategy showed us that ACE: JMK (FJL), managed by Bob Dippy of Pennsylvania, was the rightful wearer of this crown! He had a 272-point total. Bob can now decide between an engraved plaque and 25 free matches. Hold positions 1, 3, 4, 7, 9, 10, 14, and 15 were used to determine the league battle royal outcomes.



ACE: Playboy Pat Burrell (AAL) received $25,000 in imaginary money for winning this title. His manager, Michael Eaves of Mississippi, provided his 499 total, so Michael wins 10 free matches!



Mark Duchaine of Vermont picked up this title (and another 10 free matches) with a little help from WWW: Sinister Steve Stryker (CSL). Nice going, Mark!



WWW: Little Orphan Amphetamine (PKL) is so hardcore, he was able to retain this title! Congratulations go out to his manager, Mark Duchaine of Vermont, who will receive 10 free matches for this achievement.



EXODUS: Asmodeus (NBL), managed by Scott Lowe from none of your business, edged out both CFH: Allister Fiend (WEL) and E-POD/DA: Shawn Walker (SGL) to take home this $25,000 purse along with 10 free matches!



The Iron Federation belt stayed in the hands of Ohioan Keith A. Maple. This time he used LPPF: Money Hungry Bandit James A. Brisco (MBL) to get the job done. James had a 499-pointer. So did ACE: "Diabolical" Devin Frontier (KKL), who used it to great effect in the Steel Federation. His manager is Howie Sandberg of New York. The Gold Federation champion was I AM THE GREAT: Brutal Derek Butcher (BBL). He earned an imaginary $40,000, while manager Edward Ledeger, Jr. of California won 25 free matches! Eventual World Champion Power Hungry Maniac began his journey by taking the Bronze strap. Michael Eaves of Mississippi collected his fifteenth Diamond Federation win after ACE: Celtic Tiger (LBL) edged WWW: The Amazon (NAL)! He also scored a victory in the Jade Federation, thanks to American Champion ACE: Playboy Pat Burrell (AAL), who had 499 points. That brings Michael's career federation title count to 39!



After defeating the competition for the Central region, the Great Mudo (MRL) set his sights on the National title and won it with his 499 total!
