Did I win the World title this cycle? No comment, but I can admit that in addition to the Iron Federation honors, IWA Legend Terrence Boyd picked up an incredible eighth King of the Ring crown!

Our Elite Championship has now seen 67 rounds of play, and we have two winners! The only other time that occurred was in the September 2019 cycle, when managers Joseph Glen Clark and Robert J. Ratliff had to share the gold. Reigning co-champion Ali Atari is wearing the belt for the second time in his career, bringing the number of Elite title victories in manager Matt Riley's collection to five!

You'll have an extra 50 opportunities to see your name in lights next cycle... Be on the lookout for the 2022 IWA State Wrestling sign-up forms!
