The 2021 Specialty Championships are about to begin! This will be the first time the wrestlers holding the five new titles suggested by manager Kenneth Plasse will defend their gold. (Those belts are awarded for the Ambulance, Brass Knuckles, Elimination Chamber, No Holds Barred, and Soul Survivor match types.) Check your envelope for the sign-up form, or head over to the Results page at PlayIWA.com and download the PDF. Send your contest info to us with your matches for the upcoming Dog Days cycle. Best of luck!

Another first time (to the best of our knowledge): Now that he has finally captured the elusive Steel Federation strap, ~TZ~, who also manages the reigning World Champion, has become the first player in IWA history to achieve the incredible feat of winning every title currently listed in this document! The three belts added most recently are, in order: the Metropolitan title, which debuted in the Spring 2009 cycle and went to the self-managed ACE: Hitman Howie Sandberg; the Elite Championship, which was introduced in the August 2018 cycle and won by "The UNnatural" Vic Villain, managed by Louis Ruggiero; and the International title, which we brought back for Imagimania 2019 (it went to DOD: Ghost Lee Shadows, who is under contract to Jason Frymier). The International belt had been collecting dust since the Holidays 2000 cycle, when SL: Edward Scissorhands won it for manager Rob Bradford, but it returned to full-time use with a vengeance in last year's Summer cycle, ending up around the waist of IMT/FRM-16/iWWF: Francisco Bizarro, who wrestles under the watchful eye of Big Marchand.

Yet another first time: ~TZ~ managed our first-ever International Champion, DF: Ultimate Headcrusher! He gained the honor in the Dog Days 1998 cycle by securing the league title in the original United Nations League.

Perseverance really does pay off, folks. Our congratulations to ~TZ~ on proving it so definitively!

Cobra/Wolf's Den: WarGoddess (LSL) 1,740-694-92, *11, $3,045,700

"Hello, my name is Jerald Horton, manager of the two women I am honored to help induct into the IWA Hall of Fame, WarGoddess and Terri Black. Before I begin, I am dedicating this to my father, Robert Horton, who passed away from cancer on July 12, 2021. He was a big supporter of my work in the IWA and my friends' work, as well. This IWA Hall of Fame induction is dedicated to my father. I love you, Dad, and thank you for supporting the IWA and all of us. This one is for you.

"Now, about Terri Black and WarGoddess: they were two women who defied the odds in the LSL and the AWL. Terri was in a class of her own. She became a champion in her debut, and proved that hard work does pay off. She took on the best and beat the best. She became the greatest LSL Gatorbait Champion, and showed how she could take a beating and deliver one, as well. She was the LSL G-Force Champion, and defended that title in 15 or so straight defenses and retained. She went to the AWL and won the league title, the Great American title, and realized her dream when she became the AWL Women of Honor Champion. She went down as the best champion there, defending it in any contest and coming out on top. I'm very honored to manage her and very proud of what she has done in the squared circle.

"This next woman is no stranger to the IWA. Her name is WarGoddess. She has wrestled in many leagues, but found her home in the LSL. She was there from the beginning. She won many titles there, and she was one of the earliest G-Force Champions, and helped put that title on the map in the LSL. She also held three titles at the same time, and was one of the first AWL Trios Champions with the Bunny Trio. She won her first Briefcase and cashed it in to win the AWL Great American title. She proved she was the best every night, and was respected by everyone -- managers and wrestlers -- for her determination in the ring. I am proud of the work she put in all over the IWA since Day One, and I'm proud to be the manager of both her and Terri Black. Most of all, I'm proud of them for showing that they believed in themselves and never changed who they were to succeed. They were true to themselves, and I am very proud to induct them into the IWA Hall of Fame.

"I want to thank my Lord, Jesus Christ, for everything He has done for me. I want to thank my mom, my family, and all my friends for their support; Kimberly for making the IWA possible; you, Will Wizdom; Timothy L. Clark; Shane Cole; IWA Flip; Kyle Queen; Robert Harper; Robert J. Ratliff; Anthony 'Slick'em' Hodges; Gerald Robinson; and everyone in the IWA who makes it possible to enjoy this game we love. Most of all, I want to thank my father, Robert Horton, who inspired me not only in life, but in the IWA and the creation of LockDown. Thank you, Dad, for believing in me and for supporting me in the IWA and in life. I love you, Dad, and this Hall of Fame induction is for you! Thank you, and God bless you all!"
