NWL DOES IT AGAIN
The National Wrestling League broke the record it set last cycle by 17 matches, making the new IWA record 2,852 matches played in a single league during a single cycle! Click HERE to see these latest results.
THE 2014 JOHNNY B CUP
"Johnny Revolution has sanctioned the biggest event in IWA history to honor the man who founded the IWA in 1985, Johnny B. This event is open to all wrestlers in Gold Federation leagues who want to enter this single-elimination tournament that will see prizes the likes of which have never been seen before. Unlike other events which are held within one league, the Johnny B Cup will pit the stars of every Gold Federation league against each other in a manner similar to the NCAA's March Madness tournament. The match-ups will pit top ranked stars with the highest records vs. lowest ranked newcomers with smaller records. We expect to have as many as 128 wrestlers in this event that features a grand prize as big as the man who created the IWA. Check out the details, the amazing prizes, and don't miss it!"

* Please note that "Shot at the World Champion" refers to the Revolution World Champion. Also, Kim's correct e-mail address begins with "kimberly," not "kim."

ATTENTION: COMMISSIONERS OF THE IWA
"Due to new regulations that have been set forth by Johnny Revolution, Sr., the NWL must give up one of its hottest commodities: the BIQ (Brothers In Question). Comprised of Willie Survive, Izzy Crazy, and Kanny Wynn, this trio has combined in less than a year to win multiple IWA-wide events, multiple tag and six-man titles, two league tournaments, multiple regional titles, and a TV title. Their total combined record in that time span is 3,267-481-118.
"I am sending out this notice that we are willing to go to any league in the IWA that is willing to accept us, but we would like to negotiate our arrival to your league. We would like to make our portion of the deal readily available to you. If and when you decide to bring the BIQ to your league, we will guarantee that within three cycles of our arrival, your league will become the number one league in the IWA in activity, and if not, we will gladly repay any and all fees associated with your portion of our agreement. If you are interested, please reach out to me via e-mail at coryfnjones followed the @ symbol and then gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from any and all of you, and look forward to the next step in the evolution of the Brothers In Question."
UPDATE: The NWL had 2,835 matches this cycle, and the BIQ signed over 1,100 of those matches. As you can see, you definitely want us in your league!

MR. ASL CONTEST
Coming soon: the contest the ASL has been looking for! That's right, the MR. ASL contest is coming to the IWA's oldest league. For a mere $2 entry fee, you can get in on a super contest. For the next few cycles, transfers into the ASL are free, so if you're All Star material, come to the ASL and get in on this one. The prizes will be determined by the number of entrants, and will be posted soon.
SHOTGUN TAG TOURNAMENT
"Starting again this year, your GRL and PKL Commish brings you an innovative new type of IWA tournament. This is the same man who brought you the Mr. GRL/PKL and the Bound for Glory series. I am going to give folks a few cycles to sign up. You must sign all your own matches and pay attention to the report every cycle to win. The winners will split 100 free matches, and there will be a winner in BOTH the GRL and the PKL! If you are interested, then enter your tag-team in Trash Talk and use the format below. You may only use one tag-team of two wrestlers as an entry."
"Each cycle, Wrestler #1 from each team will square off, Wrestler #2 from each team will square off, and the tag-team itself will square off. Each win gives you one point. The first team to get to four points wins. If both teams have four or more points, the team with more points wins. If both teams tie, there will be a sudden death round the next cycle.
"Good luck, and get those entries in! I am thinking we will start in March or April, depending on how quickly people get me their entries."
TRY THE NEW TCL FOR FREE!
"The Total Chaos League in the Bronze Federation, formerly called the Torture Chamber League, WANTS YOU!!! The league is in need of new talent: single wrestlers (male and female), tag-teams, six-man teams, and stables of all sizes. The Total Chaos League's foundation is based on both old and new school wrestling traditions and ideas. Trust me when I say we are NOT a copycat league. Here in the NEW TCL, winning isn't everything -- it's more about the spirit of competition and just having FUN.
"So you ask what makes the TCL different from other IWA leagues? Well, each and every cycle I give out $50,000 in imaginary cash as well as free matches. The single wrestler (male or female) that wins the most matches gets 20 GRAND added to their money winnings. The tag-team with the most wins split the 20 grand (that's $10,000 for each wrestler). For those of you who like to brag, boast, and talk smack, 5 grand is given to the wrestler with the best Trash Talk. Now, for my master strategists out there who play the game solely for the thrill of winning, I have something for you too. Win multiple titles (single, tag-team) to accumulate points; the wrestler with the highest point total at the end of the cycle gets 5 grand plus 5 free matches.
"Speaking of titles, I have created 5 Commissioner titles -- 3 singles, 1 tag-team, and 1 six-man. All Commish titles are defended every Pay-Per-View. Every cycle there will be a FULL action-by-action write-up pertaining to our signature show entitled Monday Night Mayhem, held at the TCL ASYLUM Sanitarium Arena. Come to the TCL and give us a try. This league has NO limitations and NO restrictions. Stable initials are accepted and encouraged. Here in the TCL we also have a Women's Division. So come as you are; ALL wrestlers are welcome here. FREE TRANSFERS for the next 3 cycles! If you have any questions, contact Commish FATE at fate-tcl-commish followed by the @ symbol and then outlook.com."
FROM NEW CWL COMMISSIONER MAXIMUS KING:
"The CWL is under new management. There are many exciting changes coming with a variety of new events and contests that will appeal to a multitude of managers. However, there will be some restrictions. Effective May of 2014, the league will allow no more than 5 wrestlers per manager. Stable initials will also be eliminated, being replaced by a tag-team rankings system. The CWL still encourages the formation of teams, and will ask that they register with the league. The new system will track win-loss records of officially recognized teams. The league is also being rebranded. In fact, management is asking for name suggestions from the players. So, if you're looking for a change of pace with a groundbreaking league, check out the CWL. The IWA has authorized free transfers to the CWL during the transition period, so all players can experience a risk-free trial of this new league."

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. :)
