A member of the IWA family, former WWE superstar Shane Helms A.K.A. "Hurricane Helms," was recently involved in a serious motorcycle accident. (Shane perfected his trash talking skills right here in the IWA before embarking on a real life wrestling career.) TNA Knockout Velvet Sky is organizing an online collection to help him with his medical bills, and we're asking everyone to consider making a donation by visiting her website at www.SkySoHigh.net.

If you'd rather send Shane a donation directly, mail it to Gregory Shane Helms, P.O. Box 746, Wendell, NC 27591.

Even if you can't afford to give anything right now, sending him a personal note to read during his recovery would lift his spirits and be very much appreciated. You can also help by spreading the word, both online and off.

Thanks for joining us in supporting one of our own!



World Heavyweight Champion

Ivan the Terrible (HWL)
"The Game" from Parts Unknown; 500; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches

10:35 PM, EDT... The IWAtron crackles to life, and TV viewers at home are treated to the crowd in the IWA coliseum booing heartily at the sight of the IWA World Heavyweight title being handed to the new champion, Ivan the Terrible. The crescendo of crowd noise becomes even worse once he is joined in the ring by the new IWA World Tag-team champions, Moses and Julius Caesar. Holding their titles high in the air, all three stand center-ring, soaking up the chorus of hatred that rains down from every corner of the coliseum, when "The Game" by Motorhead suddenly explodes over the PA system... announcing the arrival of the brains behind the brawn. The namesake of the song appears from behind the curtain and stands majestically at the top of the ramp, and his presence alone stuns the crowd into near-silence. Everyone in the arena RECOGNIZES this multiple-time World Champion manager! However, seconds before the ringside announcers are able to divulge the shocking identity of the man behind the alias, the cameras fade to black...
