PLEASE HELP A FELLOW MANAGER IN NEED
On August 14th, 2014, the Reedy family excitedly welcomed into the world a little girl named Sadie Mae Reedy. However, she was born with only one operating lung, a large hole in her heart, and the left hemisphere of her brain not fully formed. On August 17th, 2014, she passed away from her complications.
As any parent would tell you, no one plans for the death of a child. The IWA is asking all members if they can help the Reedys with the funeral costs. Please send any donations to the IWA, and they will be forwarded to Randall Reedy and his family. Thank you.

THE NBL CONTINUES TO DELIVER!!!
"Hello again, my fellow IWA members. As you all know, I am the Commissioner of the POWERHOUSE New Blood League, 'The Alpha Male' Melvin Mayhem, and I can't stress enough how incredible the action has been over the last few cycles. Feuds are intensifying at a breakneck pace as our biggest PPV of the year fast approaches. Our Money in the Blood Tournament is in full swing, and our ANNIHILATION card is beginning to take shape. Not only are all of the Mayhem titles on the line, but we have a STACKED undercard which will see ladder, loser leaves town, ambulance, barbed wire, casket, first blood, full metal mayhem, and inferno matches, among others. This is going to be an unprecedented night of entertainment, and you can still get in on the action. Our General Manager, the one and only, and IWA RECORD SETTING Michael Giuliano, has been overseeing our operations, and has helped to usher in a new era of quality and top-notch programming. Our card numbers have continuously kept us in the top 10 most active veteran leagues, currently claiming the #2 spot, and we are gunning for that top spot! It will only get better from here on out, as we have plans to push the envelope even further into a prosperous era that will be unmatched and envied throughout the entire IWA.
"If you feel you can contribute to our vision and are willing to go toe to toe with some on the best in the business, then sign on the dotted line and enter our world. But be warned: victory will come at a premium, so bring your 'A' game at ALL TIMES or end up as just another full-time jobber on the roster. As always, my League Report is a cut above the rest, and will continue to evolve and reflect the action that only our league can deliver. Transfers are free as long as you stay active, so if you have the itch for real competition then you know what to do. Here is my latest report to get you up to speed with everything that is The NBL. See you ring side!"

TWO BIG REASONS TO JOIN THE LWL
The Lone Wolf League is very proud to present its brand new light heavyweight division, featuring the very best high flying, acrobatic, martial artist, and technical wrestling that promises to keep you on the edge of your seat! Don't miss this roster full of show-stealing stars as they do battle for the LWL Imperial Light Heavyweight Championship!
"Drake Shaddix here, the official spokesperson for the Lone Wolf League. As many of you know, the LWL is considered to be the toughest, most cutting edge league in the entire IWA. We have great angles, phenomenal wrestling talent and managers, and a magazine-quality commissioner's report. To make the best even better, we have secured an exclusive deal with artist extraordinaire Werner Mueck to provide artwork for the league. He is famous for his incredible work for Filsinger Games. Click HERE to view the artwork done so far of LWL talent. Don't miss out on a revolutionary way of how the game should be played -- check out the LWL today!"
Ten years ago, a handful of managers with an idea revolutionized the IWA. The Mid-Atlantic Region League shot straight to top of the IWA and stayed there for the better part of six years. Slowly the league began to crumble, and despite the valiant efforts of many to keep it going, the MRL has staggered over the finish line of its tenth anniversary. I believe, and I know many agree, it's time for a hard-earned, well-deserved retirement.
Most of the top IWA managers have done time in the MRL, and many have contributed to its commissionership. A lot of them will tell you the MRL died a long time ago, and to some extent they're probably right, but now the MRL will never die. Instead, the MRL will continue on under a new name. The IWA has agreed to retire the MRL initials, so there will never be another MRL. The league itself will now be known as the Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Legacy -- MWL. The league's history will remain intact while the titles, both cover page and commissioner titles, have been renamed. One Man Crew and The Duchaine Brothers remain the World Champions (now the MWL World Champions).
While the MWL will be run very much the same, the rules will be more flexible. It will be more a celebration of Mid-Atlantic Wrestling and less a tribute league. All wrestlers will now be welcome to experience Mid-Atlantic Wrestling, and all wrestlers are back on the table. The goal here is just to have fun.
Next cycle marks the dawn of a new day for Mid-Atlantic Wrestling!
"Hello, fellow wrestling junkies! My name is F.B.III, and I am the Commissioner of the King of Kings League. As you all know, the KKL is seen in the IWA Report on a regular basis; we have some of the toughest competition in the Steel Federation going today! Over 40 wrestlers traveled far and wide to compete in our King of Steel Tournament, but couldn't stop the infection from spreading as VIRUS: 3-D took first place and brought home a plaque, 40 free matches, and $250,000!
"Now the KKL begins forging plans on a new tournament known as Stable Wars! Each participating stable will have a singles, tag, and six-man team represent them as they face off in a triple threat-style series against the other stables. ALL matches are covered by me; all you need to do is simply show up and be active. The first place stable will receive $1,000,000! Rewards will be handed out for second and third place, as well. For the next 3 cycles, FREE transfers will be allowed for those wrestlers that sign matches as they transfer in! Stable Wars will start one cycle after the free transfers are over.
"The KKL has a lot more to offer than just a tournament. We have many events taking place every cycle, pushing our rewards to the limits! Our PPV's take place every 5 cycles with an event called Money in the Bank, where the winner receives 15 free matches and a shot at any in-league report title they want! There are events every cycle that reward I-cash, free matches, and free battle royal entries. In fact, I just came into an inheritance of $18,000,000 and donated it all to the KKL account, so come help me spend it! I look forward to meeting and beating many of you newcomers, so bring your numbers, bring your trash talk, and most importantly, bring your 'A' game!"

Keep a copy of every e-mail you send us, and make sure iwa or IWA appears in the subject line to avoid any delays. If you do not receive a reply within 48 hours (not counting Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays), re-send your message. Kimberly replies to all legitimate e-mail.
Do not use attachments since your message will automatically be erased BEFORE it is opened or even previewed. This is to prevent the spread of computer viruses.
Finally, make sure to e-mail any matches, strategy changes, etc. at least 24 (and preferably more than 48) hours before your league will be processed.
RANKINGS AND ACTIVITY CHANGES
Your wrestler's number of stars, current point flow, and previous strategy total are now used as additional tie-breakers in our league rankings system. The new progression is as follows: activity status (active or inactive -- see next paragraph), having at least one win, number of wins over losses, total number of wins, number of stars, amount of imaginary money, number of ties, point flow, and strategy total from the previous cycle.
Also, each wrestler must initiate a one-on-one match to be considered active. Tag-team matches, six-man matches, and battle royal entries do not count toward activity. Inactive wrestlers cannot compete for major titles, so if you'd like to see your grappler's name in the IWA Report, don't forget to have him sign at least one singles match!
NEW ROOKIE LEAGUE POLICY
From now on, managers may not create new wrestlers or transfer existing wrestlers into rookie leagues without permission from both the league commissioner and IWA Management. This protection does not expire after a certain number of cycles: it ends when it is agreed that managers in the league are ready to compete against more experienced players.
We hope this change will provide those who are new to the game with a chance to hone their skills on a more even playing field.
The Special Leagues page contains a list of our rookie leagues.
AN EXCEPTION TO OUR STABLE INITIALS POLICY
Our policy against changing stable initials after a league has been processed, but before The IWA Report has been published, failed to address the special nature of the World Wrestling League. Since this league does not allow stable initials, managers are prevented from gaining recognition for their group on an IWA-wide basis should they win a major title.
Attaching stable initials in The Report alone should have zero impact on in-league angles and storylines, since the WWL doesn't even use them (and by "them" we mean stable initials; the WWL certainly uses angles and storylines!). Because we are also able to afford our snail mail players the same option, we see no reason to prohibit managers from having Report-only initials in this league.
Several members of the WWW stable pointed out this shortcoming in our policy, although it just as easily could have been any other stable had its wrestlers won major titles from that league. We're glad this special circumstance occurred at the beginning of the year since it allows all groups to start on equal footing. (Remember that the January issue of The IWA Report actually lists the major champions from the final cycle of the previous year.)
NEW POLICY FOR CHANGING NAMES AND/OR STABLE INITIALS
Effective immediately, wrestlers may only change their names and/or stable initials at the time their league is processed. As usual, Kimberly has been too nice in honoring requests, and we feel the situation is getting out of hand. Allowing these changes to occur between bulletin mailings can create confusion, and leave managers who choose to play via snail mail feeling "out of the loop" or like less-valued members of our wrestling family.
We want to use the Internet to provide conveniences for all who play our game, but that must be balanced with keeping the emphasis on the league bulletins -- where the action is! When wrestlers are permitted to change these attributes between bulletin mailings, it makes on-line activity just as important as league activity; it's as if time doesn't "pause" between bulletins #34 and #35 like it should, but instead continues on in some arena that exists only on the Internet. That's obviously not fair to our snail mail players.
So from now on, wrestler information must remain a reflection of what is printed in the league bulletins. This should ensure that everyone -- whether on-line or not -- will be on the same page. You can decide for yourself if that was intended to be a pun. :)
