State Wrestling is back! Fill out the entry form included with your bulletin and take your shot at some of the 50 available titles!

Another huge announcement involving the number 50 is that we will be placing a cap on the amount of wrestlers you can manage per federation, starting in the Summer 2020 cycle (right after the upcoming July cycle). Aside from being an easy number to remember, our data indicates a federation limit of 50 will allow nearly all managers to continue playing as if there were no limit, while putting a limit on how much of an advantage any one manager can have in the future.

Also debuting in the Summer cycle is the new (old) IWA International title! Don't just watch as the champions of the BOL, QPL, GAL, HAL, BBL, WTL, NSL, NML, BKL, RWL, JDL, and ZZL compete for the honors... get in the ring!

The jumbotron fades to black, and fireworks begin to light up the arena. Fans cheer at the show. Finally, a ring announcer climbs into the ring:

Announcer: "Tonight, we have a very special night. A man of great talent. The man who brings the life of any party! Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome... ECSTASY!"

Ecstasy appears at the top of the stage wearing the IWA World title around his waist, the Bronze Federation title over one shoulder, and the Asiatic title draped over the other. He takes his time strutting down the aisle, wearing a robe like Ric Flair. Finally, he makes his way into the ring and grabs the mic:

Ecstasy: "Thank you! Thank you! See, I knew you fans would come around!"

The fans begin booing more than ever.

Ecstasy: "Now, now. Time is of the essence, so I'll make this quick. IMT hired the huge army of G-Money, bwahahaha! How's that working out for ya? Ahhh, I love it. Then again, love is always in the air when I'm around! EDGE, you might be on top for the moment, but The Infection will be knocking on your door soon! Island of Mistakes, you don't get a free ride! AI, don't think I forgot about you, little fellas. I heard you talking smack, yet you guys didn't do squat against us in Stablecade! I admire the fact that you want to take on the big dogs in the pound, but everyone knows to watch out for the ones with rabies, 'cause they'll bite ya in the behind! And for all those out there in question... Mike Drake is an all-around nice guy, and you all should be honored to be a part of the C.O.H.! 2020, year of the VIRUS!"

Ecstasy drops the mic and takes off all his gold to make ready for his first title defense.
