It's time to do some spring cleaning on your wrestlers' records! Each can remove up to 20 losses by paying $25,000 per loss. Along with your matches and strategy changes for the upcoming May cycle, include a note instructing us to "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. You may deduct losses from as many of your wrestlers as you wish, but each must have the necessary funds, so if you want to remove the maximum of 20 losses, your wrestler must have at least $500,000 in the bank!

Have you cast your vote on whether a perfect 501/516/521 strategy total should prevent your wrestler or team from losing by the six-holds-in-a-row rule? Get those ballots in!

Finally, next cycle marks the triumphant return of State Wrestling. Don't miss it!
