HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES
"Ladies and gentlemen, I am here to induct one of the original members of the Motor City Madhouse... Never a World Champion but always a world beater... The Australian Sensation who swept the nation... Master of the six-foot vertical leaping drop kick... Known as the Blaze of Glory, he restarted his career in the SAL as Def Leppard and Superman, but he will always be known as the King of the Ring in the OWL and a great tag-team technician. Ladies and gentleman, let's give one last Aussie, Aussie, Oy, Oy chant for The Blaze Johnny Dundee!"
"Thank you, Motormouth. This honor means so much to me and the Dundees. I want to thank my sisters, Selice and Eva, and my brother Stevie Ray, and my son Bobby and daughter Heather Nova. The Dundees finally made it into the Hall! I also want to thank The Motormouth and my tag-team partner Ryan "The Flash Flood" Stevens. I will keep a spot warm for you, Flood. Thank you to MCM, SS, CAST, RWS, FHI, 4REICH, and everyone else. Oy, me boyos! Looks like The Blaze is gonna go walkabout -- maybe go grab a beer down at the pub. Aussie, Aussie, Oy, Oy! Selice, sis, we did it..." (Randall Reedy of Michigan will receive a plaque for leading Johnny to stats of 1,034-157-33, with $4,768,600 in earnings and 18 stars.)
Shadow Assassin (1,103-185-57, $2,218,500 *21) is also retiring this cycle. A former Imagimania champion, the self-proclaimed Mr. DDL is the only wrestler in the history of the league to win every single title; he also held the most league championships and overall titles in DDL history. His manager, Skylar Gale of Illinois, released a statement ending with the following personal message: "I would like to thank Mike Drake, B.C. Empson, and Joe Cassidy, Jr. Those are three of the best managers I've had the pleasure of doing business with. My time in the IWA may be over for now, but as I always do, I'm sure I'll get sucked back in eventually. Until next time, keep it wicked!"
Scott Lowe has announced the retirement of nWo: "The Monster" Abyss (1,144-221-34, $3,130,190 *39). His most recent accomplishments occurred in the November cycle, when he claimed both the Metropolitan and Jade Federation titles! Joining Abyss are nWo: "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan (1,116-379-54, $1,790,000 *17) and FORTUNE: AJ Styles (1,106-367-55, $1,706,600 *17), who also called the WWL home. And speaking of home, we'll soon be sending three engraved plaques to Scott's home in Salem, Missouri!
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION
Introducing the newest IWA World Heavyweight Champion, USC's #1 Virgin Slayer from the MSL, managed by longtime IWA legend "The Franchise" Zach Gargus! Gargus had this to say after being awarded his third World Title: "I want to thank the IWA, and dedicate this championship win to IWA Founder Johnny B. Without Johnny B, I and many, many more people would not have had this game as a creative outlet, nor the years of entertainment it has provided. Thank you, Johnny B!"
Garett Guzman of Nevada guided EDGE: New Jack Terminator (LSL) to a perfect 501-point total, which allowed the grappler to overpower all other TV champions last cycle and win Garett his choice of an engraved plaque or 25 free matches!
KING OF THE RING
7-S: Vampiro Canadiense (ECL) had 273 points when we added up the values of the holds at positions 1, 4, 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, and 15 in each battle royal winner's strategy, and 500 points overall. That was good enough to win his manager, John Gabriel of Pennsylvania, the choice between an engraved plaque and 25 free matches! Hold positions 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, and 12 were used to determine the regular league battle royal outcomes.
Æ: Playboy Pat Burrell (AAL) earned this $25,000 prize by edging out 7-S/NVME: Magnificent Marvin Masters (TCL), CTI/ST: "Not So Funny Clown" John Gacy (ASL), and 7-S: The Sixth Street Strangler (SAL). Each had 500 points. Pat's manager, Michael Eaves of Mississippi, will receive 10 free matches!
Mike Dorsett of New York gained 10 free matches by coaching EDGE: Ollis Rage (JDL) to point flow victory over fellow Asiatic league champions CAST: The PI Engineer (CFL) and Æ: Masked Donald Trump (MEL)! Each wrestler had a 500-point strategy.
Æ: Rogue Wolf (HWL) had to use point flow against EDGE: Devious Drake Disaster (RYL) in the battle for this $25,000 purse, since each had a 500-pointer. The 10 free matches ended up going to Scott Lowe of Salem, Missouri!
Taking advantage of his perfect 501 total, "Hacksaw" Bane Bradshaw kept this title in the MRL! Since that's the fifth time this year the MRL was home to this champion, manager Steve Bradshaw of Florida wins thirty free matches! (Remember, next cycle we begin with a clean slate.)
Realizing that the AOL was enjoying its last cycle with rookie status, Robert Oglesby Jr. of Maryland acted quickly, leading The Crying Freeman to this $25,000 championship. He wins 10 free matches for helping his wrestler leave behind a trail of victims of "Tear Drops"!
Æ: Rogue Wolf (HWL) edged 7-S: Wildcard Ace Gamble (MBL) for the Iron Federation championship. His 500-pointer was provided by Scott Lowe of Salem, Missouri. In the Steel Federation, "Hacksaw" Bane Bradshaw (MRL) won the title for Steve Bradshaw of Florida. EDGE members White Killer (LSL) and the Friendly Stranger (FLL) also had 501 points, but lost by point flow. Sly Smith of West Virginia picked up fifty free matches by claiming both the Gold and Diamond Federation honors! Æ: King Club (MWL) edged out CTI: Rage (DAL) and CTI/ST: "Not So Funny Clown" John Gacy (ASL) to win the Gold, while Æ: Hollywood Armstrong (NFL) edged wWw: Mike White Lightning Moore (NAL) and Æ: The Bone Collector (LOL) to gain the Diamond Federation strap. All six wrestlers had a 500 total. Eventual World Heavyweight Champion E$T/PAC-10: USC's #1 Virgin Slayer had to use point flow to secure the Bronze title, since EDGE: Tenacious Tommy Frazier (EHL) also had 501 points. Joachim Storz of Germany coached CORE: Brian Coldheart (JIL) to victory in the Jade Federation. The 500-point strategy he formulated had better flow than the ones belonging to Æ: Playboy Pat Burrell (AAL), EDGE: Ollis Rage (JDL), 7-S: Rand al'Thor (SCL), 7-S: Mega Dazzle (SHL), and SNV: "Doctor of Desire" Daven Lee (JRL).
NATIONAL CHAMPION, IWA-WIDE REGIONALS
After conquering the Northern region with a perfect 501-pointer, 7-S/JL: Flash (QPL) bested our other regional champions to gain the National title and its prize of an engraved plaque or 25 free matches for manager John Gabriel of Pennsylvania! Those Flash defeated were...
The Ladies' World title went to CAST: "Sweet-As-Sugar" Stephanie Diamond (FFL), who won an engraved plaque or 15 free matches for Anthony Dudick of New York. She also used her 501-pointer to keep Anthony's name on the Queen of the Ring belt! The Ladies' U.S. championship went to Æ: Bladerunner Velvet Sky (VVL), who belongs to Scott Lowe of Salem, Missouri. She had to edge out CAST: Maggie "Thief Catcher" Cheung (MDL) to gain the title. VU: Sonny Dayze (LLL) scored a perfect 501 total, and used it to claim the Ladies' National honors for Tony Davis of Illinois. Æ: Crazy Caylee and Terrible Tangela (MDL) picked up the Ladies' tag straps for Anthony Rodriguez of Alabama, then Junky Jaala joined them and helped them win the World Six-woman titles! Michael Drake teamed his Æ: Revolution Wrestler Sasha with FC: Fight Club Crissy (FFL), who is managed by fellow New Yorker George Zimilinghaus, and the pair took home U.S. tag gold!

Two teams had to share these $20,000 belts. 7-S/CTI/LPPF: Plague Dogs Skumm and Filth (GRL), along with 7-S/CTI: "Often Inactive" Scotty Burns, are managed by John Gabriel.

WORLD SIX-MAN CHAMPIONS
Seven teams fought to an unbreakable tie in the contest for these belts.

John Gabriel of Pennsylvania had his ASL wrestlers join the party, while Ohioans Matt C. and Scott Bernes invited their DAL and TCL teams, respectively. Joachim Storz of Germany coached his OTL grapplers to their share of the prize, and Tim Northern of Arkansas made sure his MRL athletes didn't miss out.

TOP 10 LEAGUES
The most active leagues for the December cycle, going by the number of matches in each, are listed below. The New Blood League remained in first place for a fourteenth consecutive cycle! Managers in the Mid-Atlantic Region League can choose to take two matches for $1 instead of paying our regular prices next cycle, since their active wrestlers had the highest average strategy total. (The MRL switched places with the previous winner, the UWL, which found itself finishing in second by less than 1 point!)
