The special prices we currently offer on our website for buying matches in bulk are being discontinued at the end of this year. This option has simply proved too costly for us to retain. We're sorry that we had to take this action, but we hope you'll agree our regular prices -- which are listed on your Match Selection Sheet -- provide a tremendous value. After all, they're even lower than the prices we had when I started the IWA in 1985!

Also in the first cycle of 2012, we will be doing away with our official wrestler limits. You are presently limited to 10 wrestlers per league (even fewer in certain leagues), and 20 wrestlers per federation. Next year, we will be returning to our policy of "within reason." Requests for league transfers or creation of new wrestlers will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

For example, if you wish to transfer 20 wrestlers into a very active league which already contains a large number of wrestlers, we probably won't be able to accommodate you.

We reserve the right to re-institute wrestler limits if necessary.

Finally, things are gearing up for Imagimania XXVI. Watch for it next cycle!

"Fixation on the Darkness" by Killswitch Engage begins to play and the sold-out crowd explodes with cheers as the manager of the IWA World Heavyweight Champion, John Gabriel, emerges from the entrance way. He marches down the ramp way and grabs a mic as he enters the ring.

"I stand here once again holding the IWA World Heavyweight Championship, and have officially cemented myself as the greatest of all time. (The crowd once again erupts in cheers, and begins a 'you're the greatest' chant.) I would like to take a minute to call out all the no-name, talentless hacks playing the game for the wrong reason! You tools win a few cheap World Six-man titles, and you suddenly think you matter! Well, you don't matter and you never will! I find it insulting that some of you play this game because you are 'into math and numbers.' Well, guess what, nerd?! You are unoriginal and uninspired! You are nothing but some mindless sheep! This IWA World Championship is the reason we all started playing this game. We all wanted a chance to win this! This title is about being the best! Having this title means you're the best! Having this title means I'm better than each and every one of you! And, once again, I have this title! And, once again, I, John Gabriel, am better than each and every one of you!"
