We can finally reveal the winners of our Specialty Championships! Congratulations to everyone who took home i-cash, and everyone else who also had the guts to enter this year.

And the cycle after that? Imagimania!

"Dr. Pain" Mark Duchaine of Vermont; 501; $250,000 + 75 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 25 free matches, 10 free matches for XPL managers next cycle

The scene opens in the VIRUS locker room, where new World, Iron Federation, and American Champion The Executioner is celebrating. The interviewer tries to get a word with Executioner, but he will not speak; he just stands stoic in his black hood, carrying a large head-chopper axe. He is draped in various titles.

Dr. Pain grabs a microphone: "It's about time I wear this IWA World title again. And it feels good. I especially want to dedicate this World title to everybody out there who believes in me. Who rallied behind me in last year's BotB. Only to see me lose in the finals. And we all know what the circumstances were, there. And this year, you know. I wanted to go all the way. And that's NOT what happened. I'm Doctor Pain! I'm not supposed to lose -- AT ALL! But it really feels good to be back on top tonight. Can you see me now? (He does a John Cena-style hand wave.) This isn't the last you're gonna see of me up here accepting titles. Because like I just told somebody very recently. It's only arrogant if you can't back it up. And I can back it up! Can you?"
