Our apologies to manager Jerry Anderson, who is being forced to give up three of his wrestlers for this year's Imagimania. At least his loss will benefit the Autism Society of America.

We hope everyone will participate in this worthwhile event. Please consider donating more than just your entry fees, and remember to check if your employer has a matching gifts program. Let's show the ASA that IWA money isn't so imaginary after all!
