HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES -- engraved plaque

John Lala of California

JL6: A.C.O. Bob (RBL) 1,003-530-100, $3,036,900 *37
The Baddest Prison Guard in America is retiring this cycle. A.C.O. Bob from JL6 has announced he is leaving the ring after a 15-year career. He came to the IWA to keep the prison boys in check after JL6 was formed in 1998. His career is highlighted by winning the IWA King of the Ring and a Gold Federation championship, while also winning five league and four TV titles as part of his 121 combined titles. He will leave his handcuffs and nightstick at the famous Halawa Correctional Facility in Hawaii to spend his retirement on the Hawaiian beaches. What will the famous prison gang do now that there will be no supervision in JL6? Heaven help the rest of the IWA!
