We're celebrating our 30th anniversary, and it's all thanks to you! As a small token of our esteem, we're offering a special deal next cycle: for every $12 you spend on matches, you can send one of your wrestlers against the 30 lowest ranked wrestlers instead of the bottom 20! See your Match Selection Sheet for details.

A big thank you goes out to everyone who helped make the IWA what it is today. We never could have reached this milestone without your involvement. Thanks to all the players for creating memorable characters, supplying entertaining trash talk, and making our various leagues competitive and worth joining. Thanks to all the artists who freely shared their tremendous talent for the enjoyment of everyone in their leagues. Thanks to all the commissioners for taking time out of their busy schedules to provide their fellow players with engaging storylines, exciting contests, and quality newsletters, and for making each league more than the sum of its parts. Thanks to everyone who made a difference to our other players, no matter how small it may have seemed at the time; know that it mattered to us.

We appreciate the effort that each of you has put into this game known as the Imaginary Wrestling Association. You are the reason we do what we do, and you are the reason our game is so much fun.

We're truly honored to have been a part of your lives for the past 30 years, and are looking forward to seeing everything you dream up in the years to come!
