A TRAGIC LOSS

We have just been informed that manager Edward Ledeger, Jr. of California passed away on February 27th. To view this Navy veteran's obituary in a new browser window, click HERE.

Edward won federation titles during his managerial career, coached several wrestlers to Hall of Fame status, and was a frequent winner in IWA contests such as State Wrestling and Specialty Championships. He was most recently giving the members of the BBL some friendly competition.

We feel honored to have been a part of his life, and appreciate the enjoyment he brought to the IWA players around him.

If you were fortunate enough to have teamed or feuded with Edward, please consider leaving some kind words in his online guestbook at the link above.

COMING THIS SUMMER TO THE BBL

UPDATE: The tournament has been renamed, and is tentatively scheduled to begin in June.

You won't want to miss the Edward Ledeger, Jr. Memorial Hardcore tournament! It will be a single-elimination tournament played out in the league bulletins. Tie breakers will be determined by finishes in the battle royal. The entry fee will be $2 per wrestler. We're looking for a prize of $20 in IWA credit, so we will need a minimum of 10 entrants. Anyone interested can contact Frank Snow for free transfers into the league. Trash talkers are especially welcome, and we ask that at least half of the prize be spent in the BBL. Please be aware that there is a limit of 6 wrestlers per manager -- no exceptions. We will allow 2 to 3 cycles for all interested individuals to transfer in and pay the entry fee, probably making this a June event. So what are you waiting for? The time to get started is NOW!

AMERICA, THE LAST FRONTIER OF EXTREME!

"This is Robbie Blood, commissioner of one of the toughest leagues the IWA has today, the AEL. I'm shaking things up and introducing 5 commissioner's titles, along with the truest of triple threat tournaments: 12 teams start out with six-man and end in a 1-on-1 battle! It doesn't get more extreme than that! Check out my latest commissioner's report by right clicking HERE and choosing "Save Target As..."

We need help from people like you to get this league back on track. If you're searching for a league, why not give this one a try? I'm also working with the XWL to try to get some interleague action going -- and did I mention that the LOL is an American league? I hope to see you there soon!"

IT'S A GOOD DAY TO BE BAD

"The inmates have taken over the asylum! For the first time in the history of the IWA, the vile villains have a league of their very own -- the SVL (formerly the SGL), which is open for business in the Jade Federation. I'm your host of hosts, commissioner and Kingpin of Crime, Wilson Fisk. I know you want a piece of the action, a cut of the take, as there is a lot of money to be made -- not to mention giving the goody-do-gooders of the SHL a swift kick in the money bags. There is a 5 wrestler/villain limit in the SVL, but villains already active there will be grandfathered in. So come one, come all, to the only league in IWA history dedicated to the villainous legends of comic book lore! I'll be seeing you soon."

 

TALKIN' 'BOUT THE NEXT GENERATION

"Hello, IWA universe. I'm Dangerous Danny Davis, your new NGL commissioner. I'd like to welcome anyone to join the NGL -- rookies, transfers, friends, and foes. There are free transfers, but you must be active the cycle you transfer in. There is no limit to the number of wrestlers you can bring. I'll be giving out cash prizes, and holding contests and PPV's. So you want to be an NGL heavyweight, United States, or tag-team champion? Come to this league. I do not show favoritism; you have to earn your title shots. Thank you."

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. :)
