IWA RINGSIDE MAGAZINE (updated 3/20)
"It's Gold Tuesday, so take a break from the news and kill some time with the latest IWAR Magazine!
"The cover features the IWL's Steel Cut Oates, who has been on an amazing tear since he returned to the IWA. Last year's performance earned him the IWL's Most Improved award, and the big man has followed that up with one amazing feat after another. He truly has put his best foot forward in 2023.
"This issue also features updates on the Johnny B Cup, the Marano Memorial, and the winners of the Lethal Lottery: The Trifecta 2 contest, and it previews our huge summer events including the King of the Ring 2, Queen of the Ring 5, Summer Series 6, Best of the Best 11, the Lethal Lottery 3, the Elite Trios tournament, and a new Meme page, too.
"Don't forget to take advantage of the IWAR Network $12 match deal, which gives players 20 matches and 30 scrub wins, and is a nice way for the rookies to build up their records. Also remember the IWAR battle royal deal in the IWL and BRL that offers two entries for just $1, and it means even more, as the winner of the IWL battle royal gets free matches! In the BRL, the home of the IWA's biggest credit prize, the credit is now split 50/50 between the battle royal winner and the BRL Champion!
"The IWAR Network offers the IWAR Tubecasts -- one that reviews the cycle's results, and another that reviews the trash talk -- and we hold the IWAR Gold Strategy Workshop with strategy expert Mike Cook, who offers advice that will help you score higher. (Also check out our one-off show about multi-man strategies!) If you are craving even more wrestling fun, the RetroWrestling Games YouTube page covers wrestling's history, video games, and more." (The YouTube pages will open in new browser windows. The IWA is not responsible for their content.)
"The IWAR Creative Team thanks all the players who make the IWAR Network the best place to play in the IWA."
-- IWAR Commissioner Matt Riley

NOW OPEN TO ALL LEAGUES! NO ENTRY FEE!
"The IWAR Network is making the 5th Queen of the Ring tournament even bigger, as we make this women's event IWA-wide. We are keeping it simple, so here's the quick version: Any IWA player can join by submitting one female wrestler for entry into the QOTR tournament for free, from any league. We will track your wrestler's total strategy score for the cycle, and the top half of the scorers from all the entries will advance to the next round. There's a deeper dive into the set-up, prizes, and more in this document. You'll love it or you'll get double your entry fee back! Thanks for playing."
-- IWAR Commissioner Matt Riley
OPENING SOON. BRING YOUR THREE BEST!
"Hello, all my friends in the IWA. How would you like to take a trip to a new league? We want to test you! We will have a 3-wrestler limit. Our $12 deal includes 20 matches, free matches against the 30 lowest-ranked wrestlers, plus 1 free battle royal entry -- or you can try our $14 deal with 26 matches, free matches against the 40 lowest-ranked wrestlers, plus 2 free battle royal entries! The winner of the battle royal receives free matches equal to the total number of entrants! This, ladies and gentleman, is the Final Impact League! We will be making our home in the Gold Federation. Transfers of up to 500 wins per wrestler will be allowed. Just tell Kim you want your wrestlers in Final Impact, and we hope to see you there!"

Match results are also available in HTML format from that same page.
If you want us to continue providing results this way, contact Kimberly and tell her you'd like to "go green." We'll stop sending you printed bulletins, which will help keep our prices low, and you'll get the warm, fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing you just helped save the planet. Everyone wins!
Keep a copy of every email you send us. If you do not receive a reply within 48 hours (not counting Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays), resend your message. Kimberly replies to all legitimate email.
Also, make sure to email any matches, strategy changes, etc. at least 24 (and preferably more than 48) hours before your league will be processed.
