Vito, Fan, you up for bringing this back? I started my 2003 Monday Night Wars game today. Should I bother posting it here?

I vote yes! I always enjoy reading these things even if the thread is down to just a few people.

WCW Monday Nitro 9/1/2003

The show opens with a video recapping the unbelievable events of last night's Road Wild pay-per-view. After taking #1 contender Hulk Hogan out earlier in the day, WCW World Champion Sting celebrated in the ring his lack of an opponent for the night by issuing an open challenge. The challenge was answered by none other than WCW Cruiserweight Champion "Sugar" Shane Helms. Sting toyed with Helms before the emergence of Hogan distracted Sting long enough to be rolled up. We have a new champion, and he is Shane Helms.

Mike Tenay and "Diamond" Dallas Page welcome us to the arena for Nitro as WCW Chairman Eric Bischoff's music hits. The Chairman enters the ring and calls new champion Helms out with him. He congratulates him on his victory in his typical heelish fashion. He mentions an arcane piece of WCW by-laws that do not allow champions to hold multiple titles simultaneously and announces that he's stripping Helms of the Cruiserweight Championship, effective immediately. He says that a 16-man tournament will begin Thursday night on Thunder and culminate at Fall Brawl and that tonight we'll have a 10-man cruiserweight tag exhibition featuring several of the participants.

As Bischoff leaves, his Chosen One, Jeff Jarrett emerges from the locker room. He says since Helms won the title on an open challenge, he figures he'll issue a challenge of his own. If Helms is man enough, Jarrett wants him one-on-one at Fall Brawl in three weeks.

Our opening contest is a smash-mouth encounter between a pair of WCW legends. Eventually, Big Van Vader loses his patience with being able to put Road Warrior Animal away, and blasts him with a steel chair. The pair brawl to the back afterwards. This is clearly not the last we'll see of these two.

Back from commercial, Nikita Koloff falls victim to a quick loss to "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan. Koloff looks frustrated after the match, but leaves without incident.

The WCW World Tag Team Titles are on the line next as The Mamalukes Johnny The Bull and Big Vito, representing the Natural Born Thrillers defend the gold against the upstart duo of Chris Harris and James Storm, America's Most Wanted. Early on, Vito distracts the official, allowing Sean O'Haire and Chuck Palumbo to jump Storm from ringside and Johnny The Bull picks up the cheap victory for the champs. A 4-on-2 beatdown ensues.

Backstage, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash are watching the show on a monitor. Nash marvels at the progress his former proteges have made. Hall makes a crack about Nikita Koloff still being active. "I thought he was dead." "No, you're thinking of Nikolai Volkoff." "Nikolai Volkoff is still alive." "Really? Who am I thinking of, then?" It goes on like this. Hey, at least they're not wrestling, right?

Ten participants in the Cruiserweight Title Tournament are in the ring when we return from break. Jamie Noble captains the team of Crowbar, Harry Smith, Shannon Moore, and Ultimo Dragon against Ca$h, Mike Sanders, Jason Jett, Psychosis, and "Primetime" Elix Skipper. A ton of high-flying action as the ten men get in all of their key spots. The finish comes when Smith manages to hit the veteran Psychosis with his trademark corkscrew DDT for the minor upset. Smith looks strong heading into next week's first-round matches!

AJ Styles is backstage. He says that Eric Bischoff granted him a sneak peek at the brackets for next week and he can't wait to tear Billy Kidman apart!

Our main event pits the team of Booker T and Dustin Rhodes (collectively known as "Black Dust") against nWo representatives Buff Bagwell and Lex Luger ("Totally Buff"). The match of the night features quick tags by the babyfaces early until the heels get Booker isolated. He manages a hot tag to Rhodes, who is distracted by the arrival of Scott Norton and Scott Steiner. This allows Luger to get the jump on him and apply the Torture Rack. Rhodes submits, and the beatdown is on.

But suddenly from the back, Rey Mysterio Jr., who Tenay and Page confirm is the #1 seed in the Cruiserweight tournament, comes sprinting down the aisle. He gets beaten down for a bit until he's joined by... GOLDBERG! The monstrous Goldberg begins laying waste to the nWo until he, Mysterio, Booker, and Rhodes stand tall.

The nWo is halfway up the ramp when they're greeted by WCW Executive Committee member "Macho Man" Randy Savage. He announces that in 20 nights in Atlanta, Fall Brawl will once again host War Games! Bagwell, Norton, Steiner, Luger, and the former World Champion Sting against Goldberg, Rey Mysterio Jr., Dustin Rhodes, Booker T... and THE IMMORTAL HULK HOGAN! The crowd goes nuts, the nWo goes ballistic, and Nitro goes off the air.

It's building to something bigger, but I wanted to tell a story about an unexpected title change, since there hasn't been one in so long. Hopefully the way I see the story playing out doesn't get derailed by injuries before the big Starrcade payoff. I'm not particularly optimistic about Fall Brawl being very good, since most of my top guys are tied up in one match, but hopefully Starrcade redeems it. Going out of town tomorrow for a couple days, so I'm not sure when I'll be able to post Raw or Extreme TV, but I wanted to get a start on this before I lost my motivation again.

Monday Night Raw
1st week Of March

On the aftermath of Fastlane, Which saw Daniel Bryan defeat Roman Reigns to become the new number one contender to face Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania after a surprise attack from the United States Champion Rusev. How will Roman Reigns deal with losing with his date with destiny, and will the Yes Movement be able to overcome the Beast Incarinate Brock Lesnar?

Also at Fastlane, Dolph Ziggler regained his Intercontinental Championship from Bad New Barrett, after losing it the night himself, Ryback and Erick Rowan were fired. Tonight the new Intercontinental Champion will team with Ryback and John Cena to face Seth Rollins, The Big Show and Kane!

Start Of Show!
Behold, The King Of Kings as Triple H and Stephanie McMahon make their way down to the ring. Triple H doesn’t seem to look to happy, as the crowd is ripping into the power couple. Triple H and Stephanie go over the fact that the B+ Player has once again managed to get himself into the Main Event at Wrestlemania. Triple H however says the blame isn’t on Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan or even the United States Champion Rusev who costed Reigns his shot at Brock Lesnar. But is on one man, One man who believes he can show up only when he wants too and try to change history. That man is Sting. Triple H and Stephanie go over the fact, that if it wasn’t for Sting, none of this would be happening. Triple H is about to say something else, when Sting music hits to a huge pop, but Thing doesn’t come out. The Authority laugh because Sting really doesn’t care about the WWE, yet he like sticking his nose in their business. Tonight Triple H and Stephanie say they will correct the mistakes of the past, because that is what is best for Business, and that the biggest mistake Triple H ever made was allowing Sting into the WWE, but tonight that changes, To steal a phrase from Stephanie Father….Sting…You’re, But before Triple H can finish the line, Sting has appeared behind him and hits a Scorpion Deathdrop to a Thunderous Pop, as Stephanie looks on in horror!

Overall Rating 94%
Sting gained 4 Points of Overness from this segment!

Tag Team Match
The Uso’s v. Gold & Star Dust
It was caught clear in this match, that there is still some friction between the two Dust Brothers, as Star Dust never was on the same page as his older brother. It seemed that not even a future chance at their lost Tag Team Titles could bring the group back together, as the USO’s for the most part dominanted this match up with Jey hitting the Superfly Splash for the win on Goldust. The Uso’s celebrate their victory, but it is cut short as The WWE newest Tag Team, The Ascension hits the ring, and destroy the Tag Team Champions with their own championships! * ¾

Overall Rating: 81
Crowd Reaction: 88
Match Quality: 68

Backstage Interview (Rusev w/Lana)
We are backstage as Lana demands our attention for the man who has held the United States Championship for over 4 months now. Lana tells us that Rusev should be the World’s hero and not just Russia’s after righting a wrong that happened at the Royal Rumble when Roman Reigns stopped the Hero from the Russian Federation from becoming the first man in history to have the chance to hold both the United States and WWE World Heavyweight Championship! Lana lets us know that Roman Reigns is not here tonight, too ashamed to show his face after Rusev crashed him. Tonight Rusev will continue to crush all that is in his way!

Overall Rating: 70

Singles Match
Rusev v. Darren Young
Darren Young makes a RAW appearance on Raw tonight, which we have not seen much of him since him and Titus O’Neill broke up last year. The appearance was short lived as once again the United States Champion crushed whoever was in front of him. Picking up the victory with the Accolade! Rusev releases the hold, and is given his medal, before once again putting Young in the Accolade, as a clear message to anyone, that Rusev will destroy anything in his path. ** 3/4

Overall Rating: 70
Crowd Reaction: 55
Match Quality: 85

Note – I guess the crowd was still very fired up over the events of Sting and Triple H, as well as the Uso’s and Dust brothers match, as this was considered a letdown. I need to learn better card placement when it comes to this, or not to underestimate that maybe the Uso’s are indeed over!

Backstage Segment
We cut backstage as The rest of the Authority is seen trying to come down Triple H and Stephanie who are livid after the fact that Sting laid his hands on Triple H. Seth Rollins tells Triple H that he will take care of this, but it’s Triple H who cuts off Rollins, letting him know, this is now personal, and he is going to fix this problem himself, and that Sting will finally have his first and only WWE Match at Wrestlemania against the King Of Kings himself.

Overall Rating: 90

We cut away as Bray Wyatt comes into view, letting you know, That he is here! Wyatt makes his way down to the ring. Since making his debut in the WWE, Wyatt tells us that he has created a path unlike any other before him. He tells us, that is will soon be time for the world to meet the newest member of his family in due time. Wyatt talks about how he will take us out of the darkness and into a new world. Bray continues to go on when suddenly.

DONG! The Lights in the arena go out to a huge pop, as for the first time since the Streak was ended at last year Wrestlemania, The Undertaker appears. He scrolls down to the ring, as him and Wyatt stand face to face. The Destroyer of Worlds looks delighted unlike all thoses before him. The two continue to stare down each other as the crowd is going wild. Neither man has even a remote look of fear in their faces.

Overall Rating: 91
Bray Wyatt gained 2 Points of Overness for This Segment!

Tag Match
Paige & Natalya v. The Bella Twins
Paige picked up the victory over the current WWE Diva’s Champion, as the Bella retreated while Paige and Nattie celebrate their victory, Will this lead Paige to another shot at Nikki’s championship after coming up short at last night Fastlane? * ½

Bad New Barrett comes down to the ring, letting people that last night might of looked like a Bad Thing, but it was a good thing, because Bad New Barrett will be moving on to bigger and better things. However it seems that there is Bad News for Barrett, as Roman Reigns music hits to a huge pop. Reigns doesn’t say a word and instead decks Barrett with a huge clothline, as Reigns is angry about losing his Title Shot last night to Daniel Bryan as we head to commercial!

We are back as This is now a Singles Match between Bad New Barrett and Roman Reigns!

Singles Match
Bad New Barrett v. Roman Reigns

Reigns is on fire at the start of this match, as he is running on pure Anger, as he is dominating the former Intercontinental Champion. Barrett eventually outsmarts Roman gaining the advantage and nearly scores the upset with the Wasteland. Barrett continues to stay in control, until he tries to hit a big Superplex, but is backdropped to the outside. Reigns follows and is nearly counted out as Barrett attempts to sneak back into the ring. Reigns however slides back into the ring. After several minutes of hard hitting back and forth Action, which saw Barrett reverse a attempt at the Superman Punch into the Winds Of Change for another near fall. Barrett pulls down the Elbow pad, but the taunting allows Reigns to hit the Superman Punch. Barrett struggles to his feet and is taken down by a huge Spear by Reigns for the Win! ** ¼

Here Comes The Pain as the man who is the 1 in 21 and 1 makes his way down to the ring with Paul Heyman! The WWE World Heavyweight Champion stands proud as he goes over what he has done for the past year, Including conquering what couldn’t be done, in defeating the Undertaker Wrestlemania Streak, The complete destruction of John Cena at Summerslam, and scaring the man who holds Money In The Bank so badly, that he won’t even attempt to cash in on his client….BROCK LESNAR!

Heyman says that it doesn’t matter who they throw at him, there will never be a champion like his client because Brock Lesnar only knows how to Eat, Sleep, Destroy and Repeat, and Heyman asks the crowd, Will Lesnar continue to be World Champion after Wrestlemania…Heyman simply responds with YES!

Heyman asks us, Do they know the story of David versus Goliath? He talks about how David took down the Giant, but tells us, this is the real world, and that a Beast will always overcome the underdog. Heyman tells us that that Daniel Bryan should be proud of his moment last year, but also reminds us, that it was his client Brock Lesnar that everyone was talking about when he became the 1 in 21-1.

Daniel Bryan music hits as he makes his way to the ring, to a huge pop and a roar of Yes’s! Daniel tells us that last year was a big moment for him, finally overcoming everything that Triple H and Stephanie threw in his way to finally get the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Heyman cuts him off, talking about while he did overcome the odds, forcing a Actor to tap out is a lot different than facing the Beast Incarnate. Heyman tells us that Daniel Bryan is a amazing talent, and his tale of coming back after nearly losing his career should be inspiration to others, but reminds us that his neck could be an issue. Heyman questions whether or not Bryan really wants to go thru with this. To think about his wife Brie, and the children that they might one day have. Do you really want to face a man, who destroyed John Cena, and a man who can easily grab you and give you Fifteen German Suplexes on that repaired neck of yours. Bryan thinks about it, and simply replies with YES! Lesnar seems amused with Bryan fortitude, but mentions to Heyman that he could easily break Daniel Bryan in half by simply breathing on him.

Paul Heyman: Are You Sure that this is what you want Bryan. You already done so much in making this far, there is no shame in running away.

Bryan replies with Yes, as Heyman continues to try to advise Bryan that his answer should be No, and that once it set in stone, Brock will not see a challenger, but another body broken in his way. Daniel replies with another Yes, as the crowd is fully behind him as his music plays as we head to commercial!

WWF Monday Night RAW 9/1/2003

Immediately after the opening sequence, we see The Rock and Brock Lesnar face-to-face in the locker room. The dominant World Heavyweight Champion (for the last 371 days) reinforces the announcement made last week. The Rock's request for a rematch has been granted by the McMahon family. Brock's caveat to agreeing to the match was that he picked the circumstances of the match. The match will happen. At the Royal Rumble. In four months. After he faces literally everyone else on the roster. Rock talks some trash. Brock wishes him luck. His Road To Redemption starts now.

The Rock makes his way to the ring. He paces, awaiting his first opponent. Jim Ross and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin are on commentary, talking about how Rock doesn't need to win all, or even any of his R2R matches. He just has to have them. Lesnar is softening up Rock so that when January comes around, Lesnar can pick up the pieces. Rock's opponent is introduced, and it's... Christopher Nowinski. The Smartest Man In Wrestling enters the ring, the bell sounds, he attempts a clothesline, gets stuck with a Rock Bottom, and The Rock is one match down on his Road To Redemption!

The enigmatic Raven is backstage with his associates Stevie Richards and Tazz. Raven talks up the fact that there's a title match tonight and two #1 contender matches, but no room on the card for him. What about me? What about Raven? Stevie mentions that one of the contender matches is for the Women's Title. Tazz chokes Stevie out. Raven thanks him.

Chris Jericho is backstage being interviewed. Pretty typical Jericho stuff, which means it's awesome. Unfortunately, it amounts to little more than self-promotion. He talks a little about his stablemate Kurt Angle's opportunity to be #1 contender tonight, but he mostly talks about himself.

The Divas are out next in a triple-threat tag team match. The winning duo will face Molly Holly in a triple threat for the Women's Title this Thursday on SmackDown! All six women get in their signature spots leading to a series at the end where Ivory hits a facebuster on Gail Kim, only to eat a Mick Kick from Mickie James, who then takes the Widow's Peak from Victoria, who gets hit with Stratusfaction by Trish Stratus, who gets flattened by a moonsault from Lita. Lita and Ivory win the match and will face Molly in three days for the gold!

Back from commercial, "Latino Heat" Eddie Guerrero is in the ring. He talks a bit about his ongoing issues with Triple H. He challenges The Game to a match at Unforgiven. HHH steps out onto the ramp and accepts the challenge!

Tonight's title match is for the Intercontinental Championship! The unlikely champion Bubba Ray Dudley comes to the ring, flanked by his half-brother D-Von and their Dudleyville Protection Agency partners Bradshaw and Faarooq. He knows he needs numbers on his side, because when his music stops, the arena sound is drowned out by the revving of twelve huge motorcycles, the introduction of The Dirty Dozen! Of course Undertaker leads the way for his gang, followed by his remaining partners. X-Pac dismounts and enters the ring. He'll face Bubba for the belt, but it looks like a lumberjack match with the fourteen combined stablemates at ringside.

Bubba uses his strength advantage throughout the match while X-Pac tries to stick and move as best he can. Finally, the brutal biker gang begins assaulting the DPA at ringside, distracting the referee long enough for Hardcore Holly to enter the ring and hit Bubba with an Alabama Slam. He turns around in time to see Pac cover Bubba for the win and the title change!

The beatdown complete, The Dirty Dozen enter the ring to celebrate with Pac. Undertaker talks about how this is just the beginning. Tonight, he'll win the fatal fourway to become #1 contender for the World Title. Soon, the Dozen will control all the WWF gold! Taker, Pac, Holly, Big Show, Kane, the New Age Outlaws, Val Venis, K-Kwik, Maven, Al Snow, and Chyna all pose as we go back to commercial.

Taker remains in the ring, but the rest of the Dozen has been banned from ringside for tonight's main event. He is joined by Shawn Michaels, Kurt Angle, and the upstart John Cena. The winner of tonight's Fatal Fourway will face Brock Lesnar at Unforgiven for the World Heavyweight Championship! The main event is also the match of the night as all four men give it their all in a battle for supremacy. Cena looks like he has the match won when he picks Undertaker up for the F-U, but he's blasted by Sweet Chin Music by Michaels! Taker takes a nasty tumble to the floor, Cena is out cold, and Michaels has his back turned too long, allowing Angle to sneak up behind him and hit the Angle Slam for the victory!

WWF Chairman Vince McMahon appears on the TitanTron to a massive pop! He makes the match official: At Unforgiven it will be Brock Lesnar defending the World Heavyweight Title against the Olympic Hero Kurt Angle!

Angle celebrates for a bit, but the cameras quickly cut backstage where John Cena and Shawn Michaels have to be pulled apart, each blaming the other for his loss. This does not look like the last time the Heartbreak Kid and the Doctor of Thuganomics will cross paths!

The Rock having to face everybody on the roster is a pretty great storyline, should build a lot of early anticipation for the Rumble.

I'm laughing really hard trying to imagine the members of the Dirty Dozen all in biker gear. Just a really eclectic group. Would love to see where they go from here.

Yeah I wish I was talented with Photoshop. I'd love to have a picture of the Dozen.

Also, I'm hoping the Road To Redemption will help some midcard guys get a rub by going up against Rock.

ECW Hardcore TV (9/2/2003)

Paul Heyman is in the ring as the cameras come up. He talks up Anarchy Rulz, coming up in just two weeks. There are no matches on the card currently, but he says that's all likely to change as the next two weeks are going to be full of the best ECW has to offer. He just found out that their audio is fucked up (yay for being on HBO and being able to say "fucked up" on a nationally-televised wrestling show) tonight, so there will be no commentary. But don't worry, kids, Steve Prazak and Joel Gertner will be back next week. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that I totally forgot to assign announcers to the show. Shit.

After Harry Slash and the Slashtones fade out, it looks like it's time for tag team action as Chris Candido and CW Anderson take on the team of Dan "The Beast" Severn and The Amazing Red. Pretty shortly after the bell rings, the opening riff of "Natural Born Killaz" begins to play, and the crowd erupts. Sure enough, the Original Gangsta New Jack, comes to the ring with his shopping cart full of weapons. He blasts Candido with a guitar, smashes Anderson with a stop sign, breaks a laptop over Severn's head, and drives Red through a table. The music never stops playing as Jack poses over his victims.

In a pre-taped segment, Cyrus The Virus says that he'll be watching Anarchy Rulz very closely. ECW's contract with "The Network" may have ended, but that doesn't mean that Cyrus isn't still looking for a few good men.

The ECW World Television Title is on the line next in a clash between two Japanese stars. Gedo defends against Taiyo Kea! It's a brutal strong style mixed with ECW hardcore match that Kea looks to be on the verge of winning before "The King Of Old School" Steve Corino emerges from the crowd and hits Kea with the Old School Expulsion, allowing Gedo to retain.

After the match, Corino challenges Kea to a match at Anarchy Rulz. "I'm sure once you regain consciousness, you'll accept."

Back from break, Little Spike Dudley is already in the ring awaiting his opponent. From the curtain emerges the Samoan Bulldozer, Jamal Umaga. Spike tries to get in some offense, but Umaga is just too fast and just too strong, putting him away in short order with a top rope splash.

Backstage, Christopher Daniels says that his mission to rid ECW of its old guard will continue at Anarchy Rulz. The Fallen Angel will usher in a new era, redefining extreme, and it all starts with the eradication of the homicidal, suicidal, genocidal Sabu!

Two of the most technically-sound wrestlers on the roster are up next as Jerry Lynn and Low Ki go one-on-one. This one is too exciting to do any justice here. A ton of near-falls, and even some classic finisher no-sells. Toward the end, Ki goes for his top-rope stomp. Lynn kips to his feet, catches Ki with a kick, and prepares for a cradle piledriver, but the bell sounds. Lynn and Ki are both confused. The referee shrugs and explains that the television time limit had been reached.

Ki grabs the official, but Paul Heyman quickly emerges from the back and says that Ki and Lynn will face off again, this time with no time limits, at Anarchy Rulz. Ki lets the official go, starts to walk away, then blasts him with a kick. Lynn chases him off and checks on John Finnegan as we head to commercial.

It's time for our main event as Masato Tanaka takes on ECW World Champion "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock in a non-title bout! Shamrock throws everything he has at Tanaka, who - as usual - shows no signs of feeling pain like a normal human. In the end, it takes Shamrock blocking Tanaka's attempt at a tornado DDT onto a chair and instead turning it into a top-rope belly-to-belly onto the chair to pick up the victory. Shamrock celebrates the hard-fought victory as his music plays.

Suddenly, Shamrock is laid out from behind by his own title! The Japanese Buzzsaw Yoshihiro Tajiri lays into the champion with a series of brutal kicks before throwing himself over the top rope to lock in the deadly Tarantula. Shamrock screams in agony, eyes popping as if he would snap if he could only get free, as Hardcore TV goes off the air.

Quick Results (Final Rating 1.40)
  1. Paul Heyman hypes Anarchy Rulz
  2. Amazing Red & Dan Severn vs. Chris Candido & CW Anderson ends in a no contest when New Jack fucks shit up
  3. Cyrus The Virus cuts a promo, looking for a few good men
  4. TELEVISION TITLE - Gedo retains against Taiyo Kea with help from Steve Corino
  5. Steve Corino challenges Taiyo Kea for Anarchy Rulz
  6. Jamal Umaga squashes Spike Dudley
  7. Christopher Daniels challenges Sabu for Anarchy Rulz
  8. Jerry Lynn vs. Low Ki ends in a time-limit draw
  9. Lynn vs. Ki rematch announced for Anarchy Rulz by Paul Heyman
  10. Ken Shamrock over Masato Tanaka
  11. Tajiri lays out Shamrock and poses with belt

Anarchy Rulz 2003 Card so far (9/14)
  • Taiyo Kea vs. Steve Corino
  • Sabu vs. Christopher Daniels
  • Jerry Lynn vs. Low Ki

How are you booking all these companies, loopy? Do you just have them all as brands of WWE or something?

Oh alright. I was under the impression that you were competing with yourself.

Might start up my old new fed game again. It seems like my urge to play the game always happens when no one else is playing.

WWF SmackDown! 9/4/2003

Dan Wilson and Tazz welcome us to SmackDown as The Rock makes his way down the aisle to a massive pop. They hype up that he's approximately 2.3% of the way to his showdown with Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble. Grand Master Sexay is waiting for him in the ring. The bell sounds. Sexay tries to get Rock to dance at the beginning of the match. He hands Rock his sunglasses. Rock raises an eyebrow. The crowd pops. Sexay tries to match the eyebrow. Not the same. When they finally tie up, Rock puts him away pretty easily. They shake hands after. Yay friends!

Backstage, John Cena cuts a promo. It rhymes, which I'm no good at, so let's just say it's pretty awesome, and he blames Shawn Michaels for keeping him from his destiny of being World Champion.

Monday night on Raw, Hardcore Holly cost Bubba Ray Dudley the Intercontinental Title. Tonight, he teams with the new champion, his Dirty Dozen brother X-Pac against the Dudley Boyz! Super stiff match between the four high-end midcarders. The fun is ruined when Kane appears on the ramp, resulting in a distraction, which lets Big Show sneak into the ring and lay out the Dudleyz. This allows Holly to pin D-Von. After the match, the beatdown is on until Bradshaw and Faarooq run them off. The Dudleyville Protection Agency... sort of lives up to its name.

After commercial, Perry Saturn is in the ring with his manager Paul Bearer, who speaks briefly about how he, too, once blindly followed the Undertaker. He offers a cautionary tale about obedience. Saturn nods and says "Yes, Paul" a lot. Very... obediently.

Turns out the reason Paul's talking about Undertaker is that one of his charges, K-Kwik is Saturn's opponent. What are the odds? Decent match that Saturn wins with the Moss-Covered 3-Handled Family Credenza.

Undertaker rides out at the conclusion of the match, staring down Bearer as he rides. He enters the ring, and it looks like he might lay out Kwik for losing, but he instead helps him to his feet and has the New Age Outlaws assist him to the back. Scotty 2 Hotty dances out. Oh, God. Scotty's gonna die. Bell rings, goozle, chokeslam, pin one two... Taker pulls Scotty's shoulder up. Tombstone one two... Taker gets up. He finally winds up hitting a Last Ride before finally allowing the referee to count to three. Taker stomps on Scotty a couple more times before riding off.

Suddenly, Scotty isn't alone in the ring anymore as Raven lays him out with a Raven Effect! Raven, who looked like he was losing it a bit last week, screams at Scotty "WHAT ABOUT ME?!? WHAT ABOUT RAVEN?!?" He issues a challenge for Unforgiven. Scotty is unconscious, so he's not saying anything, but I think it's probably safe to say he'll agree to it when he wakes up.

The Women's Title is on the line next as Molly Holly defends against the co-#1 contenders Ivory and Lita. You'll remember Ivory and Lita won a triple threat tag match on Monday to earn this shot. It's a solidly-wrestled encounter between two women who know what they're doing, and one that can occasionally flip over without injuring herself or the people around her. Lita lays out Ivory with a Twist of Fate, only to be thrown from the ring by Molly, who pins Ivory to retain her title.

Shawn Michaels is backstage. "John Cena thinks I'm standing between him and his destiny. He thinks that he's the future of this company, the next Brock Lesnar, the next Rock, the next Austin. The next Shawn Michaels. Well, kid, I've got news for you. The next Shawn Michaels is the same guy as the last Shawn Michaels. There's only one Heartbreak Kid, and he's not going anywhere. Did I cost Cena a title shot? Maybe. But if Cena wants to say that it's my fault he's not on my level, I'll be more than happy to tune up the band for him one more time.

Our main event pits #1 contender Kurt Angle and his Team BRECK-J stablemate Chris Benoit against the running buddies of the World Champion, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin, the WWF Tag Team Champions. It's God's Team against the World's Greatest Tag Team! The match certainly lives up to its potential, as arguably the four greatest athletes on the roster pull out all the stops. As the match degenerates into chaos, Brock Lesnar enters the ring and lays Angle out with an F-5, allowing Shelton Benjamin to pick up the victory. Lesnar continues the assault after the bell.

He has Haas fetch him his title belt, which he uses to lay out a bloodied Angle. SmackDown goes off the air with the champion posing over the challenger with the title. Will the result be the same at Unforgiven?

Ahhh, Scotty 2 Hotty in a singles match on PPV. Reminds me of that game where I gave Scotty the 70's guy gimmick right away just to test out the gimmick feature in the game and he wound up main eventing a SmackDown PPV because he got ludicrously over.

I was thinking of doing a current WWE game but afraid I'd get burned out quickly as always. I have another idea I'm kicking around that I've mentioned on here ages ago but I think it would be a bit more engaging. Just waiting to have some time to actually start writing.

Yeah, in terms of overness, he's one of my top ten faces right out of the gate. Thought I'd see how he holds up in a mini singles feud.

WCW Thunder 9/4/2003

Thunder kicks off with the first match in the Cruiserweight Title Tournament pitting a pair of former champions against each other as Jamie By God Noble takes on Chavo Guerrero Jr. Exciting technical match with some high-flying action as well. In the end, Chavo blocks a suplex attempt and turns it into a brainbuster for the win.

Backstage, the nWo is showing some signs of dissension. Well, sort of. Really, it just looks like Rick Steiner is pissed. He's mad that his brother brought Scott Norton out with him to attack Team WCW last week and that Norton made the War Games team and he didn't. Sting finally tells him that if he can beat any of the members of Team WCW in a singles match, he can replace Norton on the team. Norton looks pissed now and gets in Rick's face. Scott and Buff Bagwell pull them apart while Lex Luger looks on, amused.

On Monday, Nikita Koloff was embarassed twice, first by losing to "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, then again by the Outsiders in a backstage segment. He looks to get back to his winning ways tonight against Ernest "The Cat" Miller. Unfortunately, Miller has other plans and finishes him off with a flurry of martial arts strikes. After the match, a frustrated Koloff lays Miller out and beats the crap out of him.

Once again, The Outsiders are shown watching the match on a monitor. Afterwards, they have some more choice words for Koloff. Hall in particular seems annoyed that they keep giving him TV time.

The Cruiserweight Title tournament continues as Ca$h takes on the 18-year-old rookie phenomenon Harry Smith, accompanied by the "Living Legend" Larry Zbysko. Ca$h tries to use his speed advantage to stick-and-move, but once Smith gets his hand on Ca$h and can overpower him, there's not much he can do. Smith picks up the clean win and celebrates with the fans after.

Back from break, "Prime Time" Elix Skipper is in the ring. He says he was informed earlier today that, because of his participation in the War Games main event, Rey Mysterio Jr. has withdrawn from the Cruiserweight Title tournament. Since Skipper was supposed to be his opponent tonight, he's been granted a bye into the quarterfinals. He talks about how it's now officially Prime Time and he issues a challenge to anyone from the cruiserweight division to fight him tonight in Rey's place.

That challenge is answered by the World Heavyweight Champion, "Sugar" Shane Helms! The crowd pops huge for the arrival of the champion while Skipper tries to get away. The official reminds him that he wanted this and forces him into the ring. It's a good match that's building some solid momentum when it's interrupted by #1 contender Jeff Jarrett, who lays out the champion with a guitar shot! The match ends in a DQ while Jarrett hits The Stroke.

Jarrett grabs a mic and talks some trash about Helms. The Chosen One says that Helms got lucky at Road Wild, but at Fall Brawl his luck runs out.

Our final Cruiserweight Title tournament match of the night pits Shannon Moore against Jason Jett. Two exciting young stars put together a good match that Moore wins with his version of the Twist of Fate.

Our main event of the evening pits the New World Order's "Dog-Faced Gremlin" Rick Steiner against the unstoppable Goldberg! Did I mention that he's unstoppable? Because he totally is, putting Steiner away in short order with a Jackhammer. Steiner is 0-1 in his attempt to join Team nWo at Fall Brawl.

He's soon joined in the ring by Mysterio, Booker T, Dustin Rhodes, and the immortal Hulk Hogan. The members of Team WCW talk about the upcoming War Games match against whichever five members of the nWo they wind up sending into the double cage. Hogan does the bulk of the talking, the bulk of it about Sting. Pretty clear what WCW is focusing on for the match. Crowd is super into the segment, though, eating up the top five babyfaces in the company all on the same page as Thunder goes off the air.

=====

Quick Results (Final Rating 6.85)
  1. ROUND ONE - Chavo Guerrero Jr. over Jamie Noble
  2. nWo Backstage segment, Rick pissed about being left off team

WCW Monday Nitro 9/8/2003

Nitro kicks off with the remaining first-round matches in the Cruiserweight TItle tournament. "Above Average" Mike Sanders, with his manager Disco Inferno, takes on Crowbar. Decent match. You could probably call it... above average. I'll leave now. Oh, and Crowbar wins.

Inexplicably, EWR thinks that Chris Harris is a lighweight. I, inexplicably, let EWR's weight-class analysis determine who gets into my tournaments. C'est la vie. I don't know if I'm using that right. Anyway, the "Wildcat" beats Psychosis to reach the Elite Eight.

Last week, AJ Styles said that he would beat Billy Kidman tonight. And, you know what? He was right! Very exciting match that AJ wins clean with the Styles Clash. Remarkably, in a match involving a Styles Clash finish and Billy Kidman, no one died!

Our eighth and final spot in the quarterfinals is up for grabs in our next match pitting Ultimo Dragon against Juventud Guerrera in a battle of two of the cruiserweight division's founding fathers. Very exciting match. In the end, though, Juventud takes advantage of a Dragon slip-up (Sorry, Funky) to hit the 450 to get the win.

Backstage, the nWo is warming up. Three members will be in action tonight. Rick Steiner is still pissed about the whole my-brother-picked-somebody-other-than-me-to-attack-Booker-T-and-Dustin-Rhodes-last-week thing.

Road Warrior Animal, finally recovered from his brawl with Big Van Vader last week, takes on the struggling Nikita Koloff in our next match. It's a brief match that's interrupted by (SURPRISE!) Vader, who attacks Animal, resulting in a DQ loss for Koloff.

Backstage, Scott Hall is about to crack more Nikita Koloff jokes when he's blindsided by Koloff himself. Apparently, there is a limit to how many times you can have Scott Hall make fun of you. And that limit is two.

New World Order members Buff Bagwell and Scott Norton (collectively, Vicious & Delicious) are in the ring when we return from break. They will take on two of their (or, at least Buff's, we still don't know what's going on with whether Norton is in the match 'cause of Rick Steiner being a baby) War Games opponents, Goldberg and Dustin Rhodes (collectively, Goldberg & Dustin Rhodes). It's a Goldberg match, so he gets the hot tag and levels Buff with the Jackhammer for the win. After the match, Vicious & Delicious argue about whose fault that was. I'm gonna go with Goldberg.

Rick Steiner is out next for his next attempt at making the War Games match as he goes one-on-one with Booker T. The seven-time, seven-time, seven-time, seven-time, seven-time, seven-time, seven-time WCW Champion picks up the clean victory, and Rick is now 0-2.

The members of Team WCW then cut an in-ring promo because they keep giving me really high ratings. Oh, and they have a match in a couple weeks. There's that, too.

Our main event - I'm just gonna lay this out for you - is weird. Unlikely WCW Champion Shane Helms teams with Ernest "The Cat" Miller to face Konnan and #1 contender Jeff Jarrett. No real reason, I'm just curious what shit I can throw out there and still have higher ratings than Raw. No, really, this is building to stuff sort of, but still. Weird. Helms pins Konnan for the win. After the match, all four men brawl WE'RE OUT OF TIME WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN NEXT?!?!?

WWF Monday Night Raw 9/8/2003

The ring is littered with weapons as Raw comes up. Raven makes his way to the ring, sermonizing about how it's about time the WWF realizes the same thing everyone else realized years ago: Raven = Ratings. He poses in the corner while he waits for the arrival of his opponent, the Manbeast Rhyno! The two former ECW stars put on a brutal battle using all the tools around them. Raven puts a chair in the corner, then dodges a Gore. As Rhyno staggers out of the corner, he's planted with the Raven Effect. Raven is looking strong less than two weeks before Unforgiven!

Our next contest is an eight-man tag team match that has been brewing all week. The Dudley Boyz and the APA, the Dudleyville Protection Agency, team up to take on four members of The Dirty Dozen - Big Show, Hardcore Holly, Kane, and the man who unseated Bubba Ray Dudley to become the new Intercontinental Champion X-Pac. More stiff action (hee hee) before Kane plants Faarooq with a chokeslam to pick up the victory.

They're soon joined by the remaining members of the Dozen (The New Age Outlaws, K-Kwik, Maven, Val Venis, Al Snow, Chyna, and their leader the Undertaker). Taker takes the mic and calls out Paul Bearer. He says that what Bearer said on SmackDown is partially true. But what's happening here isn't just blind obedience. This is brotherhood. Paul, I once trusted you like a brother, and the fact that you're with that mop-loving idiot hurts. But bring him out here now, let him take his beating like a man, and maybe. Just maybe. Maybe I'll let you both walk out of here under your own power.

Bearer obliges, bringing Perry Saturn with him. Saturn steps into the ring, and the rest of the Dozen surround him. Taker waves them off. Saturn gets in a bit of offense, but he's overmatched. Undertaker makes Saturn take the Last Ride for the victory.

Backstage, the six members of Team BRECK-J are ready for action. Rhyno (R) is still smarting from his battle with Raven, but Chris Benoit (B) and Chris Jericho (J) are both preparing for singles matches. Meanwhile, Edge (E), Christian (C), and the #1 contender Kurt Angle (K) are in tonight's main event against the three members of the Wrecking Crew. Good promo work from all six guys, but MAN that's a weird combination.

The first of those singles matches is next as Chris Benoit takes on Eddie Guerrero. The two former friends have a very good technical match that is unfortunately marred by the interference of Eddie's Unforgiven opponent Triple H. H distracts Eddie allowing Benoit to capitalize with a Crippler Crossface, leaving Eddie no chance but to tap out.

Triple H remains in the ring as he's up next against Chris Jericho. More gpod work (though EWR says they don't quite "click"), but they are interrupted by (SURPRISE!) Eddie Guerrero, who allows Jericho to hit a Lionsault for the pinfall victory.

After break, the ring has been changed out to the set for Stevie Night Heat. Stevie Richards' guests are John Cena and Shawn Michaels, two men who appear to be on a collision course. Sure enough, the set is trashed, Stevie's knocked to the floor, and Cena and HBK tear each other apart.

Match #3 on the Road To Redemption is next! The Rock takes on the Embodiment Of Eeeeeeeeevil TAKA Michinoku. As with his previous matches, Rock makes short work of TAKA. The People's Champion is motivated. Is it possible for him to lose a match between now and the Rumble?

The Wrecking Crew makes its way to the ring, toting the World and Tag Team Titles. They hype up Brock Lesnar's title defense against Kurt Angle at Unforgiven and tonight's six-man main event. Passable mic work from the championship trio.

And now it's time for the main event. Six of the best wrestlers in the world go at it in a thrilling match. Lesnar and Angle brawl on the floor, Christian hits an Unprettier on Charlie Haas, but eats a Dragon Whip from Shelton Benjamin, only for Shelton to eat a spear from Edge. The ECK part of Team BRECK-J pick up the win, and Edge & Christian look like solid contenders for the Tag Team Titles! Benoit, Jericho, and Rhyno come out to celebrate with their partners as Raw goes off the air.

Quick Results (Final Rating 5.16)
  1. HARDCORE RULES - Raven over Rhyno
  2. Big Show, Hardcore Holly, Kane, and X-Pac over Dudleyville Protection Agency
  3. Dirty Dozen promo on Paul Bearer
  4. Undertaker over Perry Saturn

NXT – From the Beginning

Alright, so I’ve been sitting this idea for a while and am finally going through with it. Here’s my backstory: when the WWF implemented the brand extension in 2002, they did it to try to give both shows their own unique feel and also to allow their large roster to be spread out in such a way so that everybody got airtime. They were also sitting on what was viewed as one of the deepest rosters in development ever, and Brock Lesnar had just debuted on Raw a few weeks prior and was clearly going to be a big deal straight away.

With Tough Enough being a big success in 2001, MTV awarded the WWF a Wednesday night TV show to give them a platform to show off some of these developmental talents. The rookies would be paired off with pros and compete against their fellow rookies and the pros themselves. Throughout the competition, the pros will vote off rookies and whoever is left standing at the end will earn a WWF contract.

Anyway, some ground rules for the purposes of EWR: I used Arsenic to get all of the rookies to an overness rating of an even 50, which most of them were hovering around anyway. This just makes it easier to track the rookies’ overness as the competition goes on. Officially the game is set on an early evening timeslot, which gives me 8 segments with a minimum of 3 matches. Most likely I’ll be going with 7 segments and 3 matches just because realistically I wouldn’t want to rush everything on a 1 hour show. I may have more matches as the competition rolls on. There isn’t a timetable yet on how long the season will last but I imagine it’d go around 4 months at least as again I don’t want to rush things.

As far as who is going to be in the show: anybody who debuted on the main roster from the start of April 2002 through the end of the year is eligible, as is anybody who might have been in developmental at the time but never got a call up at any point. Anybody in developmental who subsequently was called up to the main roster during a later year is NOT eligible, as I may do a season in 2003, 2004, etc. if this takes off and I enjoy it.

The pros will have different rules. Anybody on the active main roster as of the first week of the brand extension is eligible to be used as pros. If selected, they’ll remain for the entire season even if they got fired, quit, or were injured in real life. I’m just doing this because, as you’ll see, a big chunk of my pros cast won’t be around by 2003 so this is my only chance to use them.

I've basically figured out my first show, which will feature a few matches and a decent-sized write up on the rookie/pro pairings. Just gotta actually get around to finish writing it and booking the show in EWR. Hoping to get it posted at some point Monday evening while I'm inevitably bored watching Raw.

Week 1: April 3, 2002

Segment 1: Introduction of the cast

After the pyrotechnics go off, our host Tazz welcomes us to the premiere addition of NXT. Ten of the WWF’s hottest prospects will compete for a chance to be the WWF’s next breakout superstar. These rookies will get the opportunity to learn from five Raw pros and five SmackDown pros, so let’s meet them first:

“Across the Nation”, Raw’s new theme song that debuted two nights ago blares over the PA system. The crowd lets out a cheer right away as Intercontinental champion Rob Van Dam is the first one out through the curtain. Following him out is the feisty underdog Crash Holly. The cheers turn to boos as the arrogant Mr. Perfect is out next, towel in hand as he spits out and swats his gum on the way to the ring. The dark and deranged Raven walks out next, extending out his arms as he walks. Finally, Scott Hall in his nWo garb saunters out last, taking his sweet time.

“The Beautiful People” hits next, signifying the arrival of the SmackDown pros. The boos come right back as the Olympic hero Kurt Angle poses on the rampway. Hardcore Holly follows him out, looking surly as only he can. The always positive Diamond Dallas Page is out next, flashing the sign of the Diamond Cutter to the fans’ appreciation. Al Snow follows him out as he also plays to the crowd. Finally the crowd lets out their biggest cheer of the night so far as Edge comes out in his trademark trenchcoat and sunglasses.

With the pros all assembled, Tazz briefly explains the rules to the pros and the fans. Each pro was randomly assigned a rookie to mentor, the pros will vote out rookies periodically, yadda yadda yadda. Now comes the time to meet the rookies.

The first rookie is assigned to Mr. Perfect…from St. Louis, MO, it’s Randy Orton! Out comes an impressive looking, clean cut young man wearing shiny metallic blue tights bearing his last name. He slaps hands with fans on the way out, Perfect does not seem too impressed.

The next rookie goes to RVD. A native of Orangeburg, SC…Shelton Benjamin comes out and also chooses to play to the crowd. His pro seems much more enthused with his assignment, as RVD and Benjamin shake hands as soon as he gets in the ring.

Out third is Al Snow’s rookie, Chris Nowinski from Watertown, MA. As soon as he makes the announcement, Tazz and Snow exchange glances of disbelief. Fans would recognize this Harvard graduate as a contestant from the first season of Tough Enough, and how he’s back for more. He comes out wearing the colors of his alma mater, looking even more arrogant than he did on Tough Enough.

Kurt Angle jumps for joy at the next announcement. From Pittsburgh, PA, Kurt’s own brother Eric Angle comes out from the back as a participant for NXT. The overexcited Kurt wraps up his brother in a huge bearhug right out of the gate, taking Eric off guard a bit.

A massive, hulking bald man with a chain around his neck emerges from the back. He jumps over the top rope into the ring. The man from the Pit of Danger known only as Leviathan will be Raven’s rookie, and Raven can’t help but look impressed at this beast of a man he will be mentoring.

Out next comes another well-built man but with a distinctly different look. An impressive physique with purple and yellow tights, this man is John Cena from West Newbury, MA. He points at the crowd and respectfully shakes hands with his new mentor, Edge.

Charlie Haas is out next to greet his mentor, Scott Hall. The energetic Haas from Edmond, OK jogs down to the ring and enters into the increasingly crowded ring. He extends his hand to Hall, but Hall just looks completely disinterested. Hall removes the toothpick from his mouth and throws it in Haas’ face. I guess they’ll need to work on that partnership.

The next guy out is somebody who should look familiar to fans of other promotions – it’s Mike Sanders from Atlanta, GA. Sanders comes out looking like Joe Cool with his cutoff t-shirt and cargo shorts. DDP seems a bit skeptical having him as his rookie, but being who he is he puts out a big smile and a hand for Sanders. Sanders accepts the handshake but seems to roll his eyes as he does so.

An imposing, jacked up figure with a white goatee, black ski hat, and black TAPOUT pants makes his way down the ramp. This is Ron Waterman from Greeley, CO. Hardcore Holly can’t help but nod in approval of his rookie, and he can’t help but flash a cocky smirk towards the direction of his little cousin Crash who is the last to meet his rookie.

Hardcore’s smirk soon turns into a look of disbelief as the final man out is a large, heavily tattooed man from the isle of Samoa. Crash points and laugh at his cousin as his rookie, Umaga, gets right into the ring and stands face to face with Waterman.

Tazz implores the crowd to give one last round of applause to the cast of NXT. Waterman and Umaga are nose to nose at this point, so Tazz asks everybody else to clear out so these two big men can settle their differences in the inaugural match of the contest. And that match is - next!

Overall Rating: 93%, Kurt Angle and Raven gained overness

Segment 2: Ron Waterman w/ Hardcore Holly vs. Umaga w/ Crash Holly


With two guys this big, this was never going to be a scientific wrestling classic. But that’s just fine, as both men brawled most of the time. Both pros stood at ringside to shout instructions and encouragement to their rookies. Waterman peppered Umaga with plenty of rights and lefts, but when Umaga got his second wind it barely phased him. Late in the match Waterman and Umaga reverses into a huge Samoan Drop. Umaga ascends to the top and the big man flies through the air, landing a massive splash and getting his first win of the competition. Crash attempts to raise Umaga’s hand but Umaga has none of it. This guy is gonna be a force to be reckoned with.

Crowd Reaction: 53%, Match Quality: 82%, Overall Rating: 67%

Segment 3: Charlie Haas video


We cut to a pre-taped sit down interview with Charlie Haas, complete with clips of him hitting some of his signature moves on opponents down in developmental promotions. Haas talks about his collegiate wrestling background at Seton Hall. But don’t let that fool you, Haas assures us he’s a lot of fun to be around and he’s been known as quite the impressionist. He’s looking forward to showing off his big personality to the NXT crowd.

Overall Rating: 61%, Charlie Haas gained overness

Segment 4: Randy Orton and Mr. Perfect vs. Chris Nowinski & Al Snow


Tag team action up next. Perfect tagged Orton in fairly early and then spent a lot more time doing tricks on the apron than he did trying to coach his rookie or even be on the lookout for a tag. Snow and Nowinski worked as a much better unit than the opening of the show would have had you think, perhaps rekindling some of the chemistry formed on Tough Enough last year. The Harvard graduate got a bit too headstrong near the end though. After excessively showboating following a routine dropkick, Orton caught him offguard with a unique backbreaker maneuver. Mr. Perfect then suddenly came alive, tagging Orton on the back and then picking Nowinski back up with a Perfect Plex and the win. Snow facepalms while Perfect acts like he won the World Series. Orton may be 1-0 but his pro hogged the glory.

Crowd Reaction: 64%, Match Quality: 72%, Overall Rating: 68%

Segment 5: Mike Sanders video


Another pre-taped interview video, much in the same style as Haas’ video from earlier. This time, the subject is Mike Sanders. Sanders has no idea why he’s on NXT in the first place. He’s a former WCW Cruiserweight champion and former WCW Commissioner. He didn’t invade last year with the rest of the WCW losers, so why is he being punished? Regardless, he’ll win this show easily. His opposition is average, and he’s above average.

Overall Rating: 66%, Mike Sanders gained overness

Segment 6: Eric Angle w/ Kurt Angle vs. Edge w/ John Cena


Kurt Angle boasted about his brother on the microphone before the match, saying Eric was a shoe-in to win with the best wrestler in the WWF by his side. Eric seemed a bit uneasy with the claims, but regardless he had a huge task ahead of him with a match against one of the fastest rising superstars and reigning King of the Ring Edge.

The inaugural NXT main event did not disappoint, as Angle more than held his own against the more seasoned Edge. After a pretty good technical wrestling match, Eric whipped Edge to the ropes and Kurt jumped onto the apron. Edge wound up reversing, sending Eric colliding into his brother. Eric turns right into a Spear and Edge wins. Kurt jumps right in and blindsides Edge with a clothesline, but Cena jumps in and delivers a big clothesline of his own to Kurt, saving his pro in the process.

Crowd Reaction: 67%, Match Quality: 78%, Overall Rating: 72%

Segment 7: Tazz makes an announcement


Tazz grabs a mic to put a wrap on the first-ever episode of NXT. After what we just saw, next week’s main event only makes sense: John Cena will make his debut against Kurt Angle! That’s a huge opportunity for Cena straight off the bat – and it’s sure to make next week’s edition can’t-miss television.

Overall Rating: 84%, Tazz and John Cena gained overness

68% Overall Rating for NXT
1.16 Rating


I’m quite happy with that debut. All of the matches delivered and nobody lost overness. Besides Cena, I’m planning on having Haas, Benjamin, Leviathan, and Sanders all make their in-ring debuts during week two.

Wanna come up with an idea like Vito did to make the game interesting again and then I think I'm gonna start a new one on TEW2013. I had a "start from scratch" fed going but I'm like 4 years into it and it would be too hard to go back and remember the stories and start a journal for it.

I like the pairings. Interested to see what happens to the "never-wases" like Waterman and Eric Angle.

Yeah, development was quite loaded in 2002. I thought it would be cool to include a few unknowns rather than just making it guys who debuted in real life (such as Rosey, who I left off). I also considered Jamie Noble or Shannon Moore but decided I really wanted to give Sanders something to do and didn't want too many former WCW guys. I figure in this universe Noble and Moore just debuted how they did in real life.

As best I can tell Eric Angle never made it because he was just constantly hampered with injuries. As for Waterman...I'm really not sure how he never got a shot on the roster. He had an absolutely killer look. I'm guessing he was just really bad in the ring to never get called up even though he did dark matches for like a year. He has decent brawl stats in this EWR data pack at least.

Why do you guys prefer EWR to TEW? Is it just an issue of time?

That's exactly it. I love the depth of TEW, but on the rare occasions I have time to play, I can bang out a couple of EWR shows in an hour, complete with write-ups. I might be able to do one in TEW in that time.

Yeah, booking in TEW takes ages. I have enough time keeping EWR games together with a far simpler system, I can't even imagine how much worse I'd be with TEW.

I think that's why I've shied away from booking WWE with TEW anymore. I did it when I first got 2013 and got through a couple weeks I think before I realized it would be way too long before I got to the point where things looked like I wanted them to. TNA was a little better with just iMPACT and Xplosion to book.

I do enjoy running a local fed though and trying to book realistically where TV shows basically consist of one show a month split into 4 TV episodes. Seems to go by pretty quickly. Like I said, when I started by local-to-global game, I got through about 5 years in a couple months or so just playing an hour or two on weekdays.

I don't know if I could go back to EWR now just because I'm so spoiled with the ridiculous amount of depth.

I think I'm gonna take over GFW and begin it as a promotion from the ground up. Just to do something different from everyone else. And since I kinda don't feel like doing a TNA game. I'll probably start when I get home late tonight.

I'll probably do another NXT this weekend. If I do one a week that's far more consistent than any other game I do, anything beyond that is gravy. I actually know what is going to happen on the show already, it's just a matter of doing the write-up and then actually booking it in EWR.

I'm also always tempted to do a WWE game just because the product is SO bad right now I'd like to book it the way I think it should be run...but I know myself well enough to know I'll get burned out as usual if I rush into it, and I'd probably only post PPVs. Probably won't consider tackling a WWE game until after Mania.

ECW Hardcore TV (9/9/2003)

With just five days to go until Anarchy Rulz, a loaded edition of Hardcore Television is kicked off by the extreme mastermind Paul Heyman welcoming us to the arena. He makes it official. What happened last week gave him a brilliant idea for this Sunday's main event. "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock will defend the ECW World Heavyweight Championship against the only man on the planet who could conceivably take that dangerous mantle from him, the Japanese Buzzsaw Yoshihiro Tajiri. The crowd erupts at the announcement. Steve Prazak and Joel Gertner check in on commentary and play up tonight's huge tag team main event that will pit those two against each other, along with their respective partners: Rob Van Dam and Masato Tanaka!

The ECW World Television Title is on the line in our opening contest as Gedo defends against Amazing Red! Solid high-paced action between the two that sees the youngster come within a half-count of claiming the gold. Eventually, though, the Japanese veteran puts Red away with his trademark flying senton to retain his belt.

Rene Dupree and Sylvan Grenier, the hated La Resistance, come to the ring to talk some trash. They've been told they're involved in a three-way dance for a future ECW Tag Team Title shot at Anarchy Rulz. The other two teams haven't been announced yet, but they're confident that not only will they finally prove that they are the best tag team in ECW, but they are the greatest French Canadian tag team in the history of wrestling! As they continue to gloat, they are blindsided by the returning Fabulous Rougeau Brothers! Jacques and Ray put the boots to Grenier and Dupree while the ECW faithful have a nostalgia mark-out moment.

Second-generation star Erik Watts is out next for a match against Ikuto Hidaka. The pair of 28-year-olds put on a solid match, but Watts is the star here, picking up the victory. After the match, Satoshi Kojima blindsides Watts and puts the boots to him.

Backstage, Steve Corino says that he attacked Taiyo Kea last week because he knows that Kea has been living a lie. Corino is old school. He's the King Of Old School. There's no one in this business today with a greater respect for the history of our sport than Steve Corino. From the WWF to WCW to ECW to the AWA, Memphis, Mid-South, Mexico, Japan... The tradition of this business needs to be respected. So when he sees a Hawaiian, an American, passing himself off as Japanese just because he spent his career in Japan is disrespectful. Kea needs to embrace his gaijin status, just as he (Corino) has. Embrace your past. Embrace the old school.

The team of Little Guido and Sonny "Cocky" Siaki are warming up. Alice in Chains' "Man In The Box" begins to play, and the crowd comes unglued! Tommy Dreamer, the Extreme Original, comes to the ring, accompanied by the eccentric Blue Meanie. It's a good old-fashioned extreme tag team war! Just as the bell sounds, Meanie is blindsided by someone from the crowd. Dreamer notices his partner has been felled, only to eat a spinning back kick. The Colossus Of Boggo Road, Nathan Jones, lays waste to Dreamer and Meanie, then gestures for the heels to pick up the pin. Guido and Siaki seem shocked, but they oblige and win the match without any effort.

We do get a hardcore tag team match next as the ECW World Tag Team Champions Danny Doring and Roadkill defend the gold against Excellence Inc., made up of Michael Modest and Donovan Morgan. Very exciting action with Doring bumping for the heels before making a hot tag to Roadkill. Eventually, Doring picks up the victory with his top rope Danaconda leg drop.

The cameras quickly cut backstage where Jerry Lynn and Low Ki have begun to brawl. They're on a collision course for Anarchy Rulz, but ECW officials have to pull them apart tonight.

Christopher Daniels, who is on a mission to remove the Extreme from Extreme Championship Wrestling faces off against Sandman in our next contest. The beer-swilling cane-swinging Sandman tries to interject his hardcore style into the match, but Daniels is too fast, too talented, too technically sound to be denied his victory. He hits his Angel's Wings finisher on Sandman for the clean victory. After the match, Daniels' Anarchy Rulz opponent Sabu lays him out with a chair, then hits a Triple Jump Moonsault. Daniels escapes to the floor and yells at Sabu, who points to the sky.

It's almost time for our main event! But first, Mr. ECW Rob Van Dam issues a challenge to one of his opponents tonight, Masato Tanaka, for a one-on-one match at Anarchy Rulz. Tanaka accepts, and it's time for our main event tag match.

It's Tanaka and the #1 contender Yoshihiro Tajiri against Van Dam and the ECW World Heavyweight Champion, Ken Shamrock! Not surprisingly, this is our match of the night as the four top stars on the ECW roster do battle. Most of the match is broken down into singles segments previewing Anarchy Rulz. In the end, the match degenerates into a brawl. RVD misses a Five-Star Frogsplash. Tanaka goes for the cover, but is pulled off into an ankle lock by Shamrock, only for Tajiri to blast him with the Buzzsaw Kick. For the second week in a row, Tajiri stands tall over Shamrock. Will he make it three in a row at Anarchy Rulz?

Quick Results (Final Rating 1.50)
  1. Paul Heyman announces Ken Shamrock vs. Yoshihiro Tajiri at Anarchy Rulz
  2. TELEVISION TITLE - Gedo retains against Amazing Red
  3. Fabulous Rougeau Brothers interrupt La Resistance promo re: #1 contenders match

Will the Rougeaus be using "All-American Boys"? This is the deciding factor in whether I like this angle or not.

I've officially downloaded the newest update and put in the proper edits to start my GFW game where I try to build it up as a viable competitor to WWE. Trying to make it as realistic as possible by letting Jeff Jarrett still have creative control while I take over as head booker. Starting from scratch. Updates coming...
