"The Mastermind" Benjamin Iannarelli, who most recently played under the alias Jason Janicky, died in a car crash on May 2nd.

Ben made lots of friends during his many years in the game, and provided entertainment for everyone fortunate enough to share a league with him. He will be missed.

Please keep his family in your thoughts during this difficult time.

World Heavyweight Champion

7-S: Ares (IGL)
~TZ~ of Virginia; manager retained title; 501; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches

Following Ares' World Title victory, he is joined by his ringside manager, ~TZ~, who enters the ring with microphone in hand. Longtime IWA personality Buzz Brewster asks TZ about winning back-to-back World Titles, to which the Mad Dog responds: "Ya know, this is certainly a historic accomplishment. Back-to-back World Titles... my third this year... and my fourth in the last 13 months. I'd call this one a home run, no doubt about it. But I cannot accept this without first thanking the man out there who kept the rankings system a secret all year long. I mean, if not for that alone, there's no telling who else out there may have been targeting this belt these last few months..." (TZ can no longer keep a straight face, as he and Ares both burst into laughter.) "Seriously, though -- and this goes for everybody watching from the locker room -- you want it, then quit crying about it, shut up, and come get it!" (TZ drops the mic as "Come With Me" blares over the PA system and the two men leave to a mixed reaction from the fans.)

In their first cycle competing, MRL tag-team champions Kerry and Kevin Von Damme took their talent to the next level as they captured the IWA World Tag-team titles! While they were celebrating their victory in the ring with their family, the man known as "TeArS" made his way to the ramp way and applauded the win. As the new champs looked up at him, he made a throat slashing gesture. The Von Dammes climbed onto opposite turnbuckles and made the same gesture. The crowd erupted at this, as "TeArS" turned away and walked out...
