From time to time, we allow wrestlers to remove losses from their records in exchange for some of their imaginary money. We're making the option available again this coming cycle, but have unfortunately been forced to raise the fee to $25,000 per loss due to imaginary inflation. The good news is that we are now allowing you to drop up to 20 losses per wrestler!

To take advantage of this opportunity, neatly print the following on a piece of paper: "Drop 20 losses from my wrestler, ID #123" (choose from 1 to 20 losses, and use your wrestler's ID number instead of 123). Separate the request from your trash talk by skipping some space, and include the paper with your league matches. You may deduct losses from as many of your wrestlers as you wish, but each must have the necessary funds. (Keep in mind that removing the maximum of 20 losses will cost your wrestler $500,000 in imaginary earnings.)

JL6: Mean Mad Mike Rogers (RBL) 1,028-390-56, $3,408,400 *32
After 11 years in the IWA, MMM Rogers of Concord, California, has finished his parole and decided to retire from the ring to start a new life as a free man. He is leaving Concord and moving on to his next stage in life without crime. Mike has won 115 titles combined, including 5 league titles, 50 regional titles, and 55 tag and six-man titles -- nearly all of which he secured with the help of his long-time partner, "Godfather" SCOE-B#6. For the past 4 1/2 years, he has resided in the RBL, winning 3 league titles in his first 4 cycles there. He was also the league's first-ever Commissioner's Heavyweight Champion and King of the Ring. We wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors.

Chris Osteen of North Carolina

RAOV: Madison Parker (TDL) 1,130-121-26, $1,675,100 *13
At the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, Johnny B is standing on a stage at half court.

Johnny B: "I'm here to induct a tough, little lady from Hungary into the Hall of Fame. So, please give it up for Madison Parker!"

"Make It in America" by Victoria Justice plays over the P.A. system. Madison walks out wearing black, open toe high heels and a black mini dress, and her long, raven black hair with orange streaks is pulled into a ponytail. Johnny B hugs her and hands her an IWA Hall of Fame plaque.

Madison: "Thank you, Johnny. It's still hard to believe that I started off as a cheerleader for my husband's stable, the BMP, back in the EPL. Then I went to the MDL, where I won many titles, including the MDL belt twice. I am also an IWA Queen of the Ring, but the biggest success for me was in the TDL, where in the same cycle I won the Texas Heavyweight Championship and the Amazon belt. I really hate to retire and leave the IWA, but I'm so happy I'm pregnant with my first child, and I want to be a stay-at-home mom. So, to all my fans and my friends in RAOV, I love you and I will miss you."

The fans chant, "Madison!" as she and her husband, Brom Bones, leave.



World Champion

EDGE: Koichi Buttercorn (PKL)
Ben West of Georgia; 501; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches

We are live at the IWA award ceremony. All the winners from this past cycle are here receiving their cash prizes, trophies, belts, etc. At the end of the night, there is one final award to give away: the IWA World Championship. Johnny B is at the podium: "Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you the newest IWA World Champion -- Koichi Buttercorn!" The crowd begins to applaud... but Koichi seems to be absent. Johnny B is beginning to sweat, as this was not expected. Who wouldn't show up to receive the IWA's highest honor?

To the horror of the fans in the audience, out comes -- straight from the Lone Wolf League -- the Foreign Legion! Led by the evil Ali Atari and followed by his minions Akira Togawa, Arik Von Umlaut, and Johnny Canuck, they approach the noticeably nervous Johnny B. Atari walks straight up to him and grabs the IWA World Championship. He's finally holding the title he's been dreaming of. The fans shower the Foreign Legion with boos. Togawa is holding Johnny B as a hostage, preventing security from making a move.

But then, out of nowhere, "Daring" Dax Janus, who has climbed the giant IWA logo on the side of the stage, pounces onto Canuck and Von Umlaut from high in the air. Barkley Steele rushes the stage and superkicks Togawa, freeing Johnny B in the process. Ali Atari is looking to escape, but runs right into "Ghetto Sexy" Afrodiziac Jones! Afrodiziac tackles him and lands a few punishing blows before Atari squirms away and escapes to the back. The Penalty Box trio have freed Johnny B, who thanks them profusely. Koichi Buttercorn stumbles through the curtain, obviously the victim of a beating at the hands of the Foreign Legion. Johnny B hands Koichi his World title belt, and the five men celebrate, and all is right in the world once again!
