What will happen now that IWC Champion Powerhouse Hughes has failed to defend his IWC title in the last 30 days?


Expect more from the relationship between the WWF and the IWC. Look for more IWC superstars to be seen on WWF shows in the future.

With talented tag teams like: Atlas and Anjel, Sexual Harrassment, Nova and Kazarian, The Backseat Boyz and York and Matthews in the IWC, when will there be tag team champions?

Will we ever see the Bubba's back in the ring together again in the I.W.C.? "Bad" Bubba Brewer and Bubba the Bulldog?

Has anyone noticed that High Stakes Champion Shirley Doe is the only IWC Champion to defend his belt on every show and not lost???? Proving once again that Doe is one of the most underrated wrestlers in the area.

What message will be sent on August 4th at the Emerald Room????

Make sure that you head on over to the WWF's Smackdown taping at the Civic Arena on Tuesday July 24th. There will be a very heavy IWC influence on the show. Who will REALLY be on that show?

There's tons of action going on these days in the IWC. The next two months are going to be very exciting here in the IWC.

Of course, you probably know by now that Headshrinker Samu will be making his IWC debut the begining of June. It also appears that several wrestlers under contract with the WWF will be wrestling for the IWC before the relaunch of WCW.

In fact, it appears that the IWC will be their very last indy date prior to the launch. Contracts are being finalized as we speak and details will follow as they become available.

The IWC is now in negotiations with Terry Funk. We are expecting him to come in for the Pepsi Roadhouse television taping on Friday night June 8th.

The relationship between the IWC and the WWF turned a major corner today. We are not able to give details to the public probably until June -- but we can guarantee you that we are working on some major deals with the WWF that will take place in the month of July.

Finally, look for I.W.C. Uncut to make it's television debut in June. The deal is almost done, and it looks far better than anyone could have ever anticipated. The show will run on Saturday's right around noon on...........I guess you will have to wait and see!

Well... last night was the the first taping of our brand new International Wrestling Cartel television show.

As many of you know, there were several wrestlers that showed up at the Emerald Room show last Saturday (March 17th) that chose not to participate in the IWC.

The question last night was whether or not those wrestlers would be in the stands again. And the ANSWER WAS YES! Sitting in the second row at the IWC Television Taping were Crusher Hansen, Boomer Payne, Dirk Ciglar and Jimmy Vegas -- BUT there was NO SIGN of Magnum.

What was going on? Were these guys going to be perpetual spectators or were they going to join the ranks of IWC????

Following a hard-fought battle between Super Hentai and Bubba the Bulldog, Damian Stockholm came to the ring running his mouth. This brought out Guido Corleone who blindsided Bubba and Hentai. Before we know it, over the ring barriers came Payne, Hansen, Vegas and Ciglar.

Unknown to anyone, this was all part of Stockholm's master plan -- and so the swerve began. Hansen, Payne and Vegas, turned on Ciglar, Hentai and Bubba to join forces with Stockholm and Corleone in beating down these three IWC Superstars!

I guess that was too much for Magnum to handle, as out from the back came a bat-toting Magnum. Everyone scattered, but Boomer Payne was not that lucky! A couple of shots with a metal bat later and Payne was feeling some REAL pain!

So the question that has rocked the Pittsburgh indy scene for the last couple of weeks has been answered? Would Magnum, Hansen and Payne join IWC? The answer was yes. But did anybody expect Ciglar and Vegas to join the IWC as well?

I guess the NEW question is... if THESE guys are wrestling for the IWC, WHO will be NEXT??
