THIS IS HOW YOU "STEEL" THE SHOW

"Good day to you all. At this point, I need no introduction. Coming off our incredible EMERGENCE PPV, I need to do something extreme to push the envelope even further -- something that would once again remind you all why the NBL is at the top of the food chain and the home of some of the greatest superstars in the business. RETALIATION 2 is on the horizon, and I am pulling out all the stops to make this the greatest PPV event in the history of the IWA.

"Now, to some of you this may seem like a pretty far-fetched notion but, alas, this is a REALITY! At RETALIATION 2 I will be debuting our league's first-ever ELIMINATION CHAMBER match, and it will be for the coveted NBL World Heavyweight Championship. 6 men will enter, but only 1 will walk away with the most prestigious Mayhem title around. 6 separate pods (that's right... 6!!!) will encase 6 equally dangerous and hungry superstars, each ready to feast on the other's carcass. The first 2 combatants will be released randomly, so no one will know who will kick things off. Yes, my friends, this event will go down as truly groundbreaking and revolutionary.

"And that's not all. With our first-ever Women's Inaugural Championship Battle Royal, a huge Fatal 4-way to decide our next World Television Champion, and our current STABLECADE and WAR GAMES winners going head to head to decide once and for all who the better faction is, this PPV is shaping up to be the absolute best in IWA HISTORY! If you want a chance to be a part of the action, then join today and I may consider throwing you into the fire! We are THE GOLD STANDARD of excellence! See you ringside!"

CAN YOU STOP "THE MEXICAN RAMPAGE"?!?

The IWA and the Powers That Be in the Lone Wolf League are in dire need of your help! One of our biggest superstars has taken an unexpected turn to the dark side. This man's name is El Hijo Del Armas Archuleta, son of IWA Hall-of-Famer and MRL legend Armas Archuleta. We haven't been able to stop him and his crusade that he calls "The Mexican Rampage"! If you think you have what it takes to put an end to his crazed ways, please contact the LWL as soon as possible to lend your assistance before it is too late!

RETALIATION COMETH!

"Good day to you all. The one and only Melvin Mayhem here with an important announcement. The road to our next blockbuster PPV event, RETALIATION 2, begins now! With the competition getting fiercer every cycle and new factions joining the fray, it will be an inevitable explosion of blood and glory when this event comes around. We are home to TSD, Arrogant Empire, KDSN, X-Nation, Outlaws, ISO, Edge, LPPF, and the Outlaws, as well as some of the finest independent superstars in the game today.

"It is no secret that my league is THE best in the game, and as time passes it is only getting stronger. You would be wise to sign on the dotted line and immerse yourself in the world that is the NEW BLOOD LEAGUE, because no other organization comes close to our brand and product quality. So many other leagues and commissioners try to emulate the new standard I have set, but they fail miserably. I even see some of the other publications trying to step up their presentation game, and can't help but laugh at their pathetic attempts to match my superiority.

"If you want to be a part of history and become one of the new faces of my glorious league, then transfer over for free and get in on the action. With new tournaments galore about to begin and new titles including my new Women's and Battle Royal titles making their debuts, this is the perfect time to become part of our universe. I guarantee you that when you arrive, you will never look at another league the same way again. We are the GOLD STANDARD and will continue to push the boundaries of what the IWA can become. You want your money's worth, then I'll see you ringside!"

CWL BREAKING NEWS

"In the Continental Wrestling League, Doug Gavelon has done something that has been nearly unheard of in the 30 years that the IWA has existed: with a strategy of 501, Gavelon retained the Unified (League) Championship for a FOURTH consecutive cycle! The man is seemingly unstoppable, and is well on his way to becoming CWL Wrestler of the Year. The commissioner of the CWL, Maximus King, would like to congratulate Doug on his historic success.

"Additionally, the CWL is offering FREE transfers for active wrestlers. So, if you think you have what it takes to dethrone the dominant Gavelon, you should make the CWL your home. This is especially true if trash talk is a big part of your game, as the CWL is the premier story league in the IWA."

E-MAIL REMINDERS

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. :)
