OLLIE - A New Era

 

http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o109/hrdcoresidebrns/OLLIE/OLLIE-1.jpg

 

The year is now 2010. OLLIE originally opened in 1955, the oldest of all wrestling companies in the world. In their heyday, they were the premier wrestling promotion in Mexico, if not the single most talented group of wrestlers ever assembled in all the world. OLLIE created the wrestling model in Mexico. But that was in 1955... and things have changed drastically.

 

The United States, Canada, and Japan have all seen promotions rise up that have eclipsed the popularity and prestige of OLLIE over the past few decades. Perhaps most shockingly, the national draft in Mexico and superior financial power of rivals SOTBPW have seen OLLIE's popularity eclipsed even in the country that they once ruled. MPWF, the first company to originally challenge OLLIE's monopoly south of the border, still remains a very real threat to see OLLIE fall to the status of third of three in terms of fan following in Mexico.

 

Through it all, OLLIE has remained true to their traditional roots. The single most physically demanding wresting product still gives them an edge among the older fans of the sport and, in more the poorer homes in Mexico, their children. Their is still hope for OLLIE.

 

Still, it was obvious to everyone in the industry that things would need to change in order for OLLIE to try and reclaim their spot as the top promotion in Mexico. While the traditional product still had its place, the roster had become aged and youth needed to be injected into the fold. Younger stars have begun to come into their own and challenge the more established stars for the top spots in the company.

 

Still, simply bringing in new, younger faces would not be enough, and everyone knew that. Those stars would have to be managed, their egos kept in check with the expanded roles they would receive. They would need to be booked effectively in order to build their worth in the company. Phoenix I, the man running the company, was effective, but the company had not increased its standing under his watch. Another change was needed...

OLLIE Appoints New Head Booker!

 

In shocking news last night, it was announced that Mexican promotion OLLIE has chosen to replace Phoenix I with a new head booker. Despite Phoenix I's respectable work in running the company up to this point, there was a feeling by OLLIE owner Joaquin Soler that the company's standing within the Mexican wrestling community was not improving under the veteran's watch, and that the company had become stagnant. Phoenix I, while obviously disappointed in Soler's decision, has stated that he will respect his owner's wish and remain within the company and plans to step up his focus on his role as an in-ring talent to try and reestablish his worth within OLLIE.

 

Little is known about the replacement, with OLLIE not even revealing the man's name. Rumors abound as to who is actually running the company, but a few things are known at this time. There are rumored to be a number of workers that the new booker is looking to bring in, with at least one being at the behest of road agent Manuel Prieto. Sadly, there are also rumors that a number of the people on the current roster will not see out the remainder of their contracts. Many of these are supposedly staff members but there is word of at least one wrestler which may be cut.

 

We will have more news on this story as it develops.

Yes! It's Hrdcore! Hrdcore! Really looking forward to this one, I love your work!

 

Appreciate the kind words, sir. This is my first game on these boards in a while, and I'm hoping it doesn't disappoint. I've run a few games with OLLIE (the only company I use more is FCW, which may see it's own dynasty at some point) so at least for the short term I have enough ammunition saved up to get us through for a while.

OLLIE Roster Shakeup!

 

http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o109/hrdcoresidebrns/OLLIE/LaBestiaPurpura.jpghttp://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o109/hrdcoresidebrns/OLLIE/LaEstrella.jpghttp://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o109/hrdcoresidebrns/OLLIE/LarryWood.jpg

 

As was rumored, the new OLLIE booker has made a number of personnel changes in his first week in charge of the company. Among the cuts were referee Benito Garcia and colour commentator Lorenzo Blanco. Both men were rumored from the get go to be cut, and it comes as no surprise that they were replaced. Blanco's duties in the announcing booth will be taken over by former OLLIE legend El Mastro, while veteran referee Ref Benn was brought in earlier this week to take over head official duties.

 

There were also a number of additions to the actual roster, with the least surprising being the signing of La Bestia Purpura. As fans of Mexican wrestling may know, Purpura was trained by and remains the protege of head OLLIE road agent Manuel Prieto. Preito had been trying to talk Phoenix I into bringing in his pupil, but Phoenix was apparently unwilling to bring Purpura in and risk swinging the political standing of the locker room to favor Prieto further.

 

The other signings were rookie luchador La Estrella, who looks poised to become a big star and is rumored to begin an immediate feud with current Mexican champion Mr. Lucha III. Perhaps the most surprising singing was that of Japanese star Larry Wood, who will be working under the name "La Leñador Loco" (The Mad Woodsman). Wood, a veteran of the sport, is reported to be very excited to work with OLLIE. Surprisingly fluent in Spanish, the Japanese star has never worked in Mexico, and it will be interesting to see how his reckless style plays into the very traditional OLLIE environment.

 

The last signing was that of bright young manager Padre Carrasco.

Yeay Mexico getting some love. My OLLIE game is my fav atm and I like the writing so far. Also as you may well know lot's of talented lucha's out there without contracts and debuting within a year, so be careful with the signing spree. Not to mention raiding MPWF when you feel the time is right hehe.

OOC - Thanks for the kind words everyone. It's always great to get this kind of reception out of the gates. I admit I'm a little rusty at this point, but hopefully I'll be able to get into the swing of things quickly.

 

Just in case anyone is curious, I'm trying to keep this in the format of an American website covering a lucha promotion. There won't be much of a back story or overall story arc besides what happens on the shows. There will also be some reader participation, so look forward to that.

 

First Card of the "New Era" Revealed

 

OLLIE's mysterious new head booker has officially unveiled what will be the first event under his rule, the perhaps over-zealously named Amanecer del Nuevo Día ("Dawn of the New Day"). The event is scheduled to take place somewhere in Northern Mexico, although a particular location has not been yet chosen. Still, with this card, there should be little fear that there is any danger of not attracting crowds.

 

The matches are posted below:

 

  • Laberinto Jr. vs El Lenador Loco
  • Mr Lucha III and Hurcan Sandoval Jr vs La Estrella and North Star Jr
  • Dos Phoenix vs Extraordinario Jr and La Bestia Purpura
  • The Swarm vs Los Monteros and Tricolor Jr
  • Phoenix I vs El Critico
  • Nicolas Lopez and Rafael Ruiz vs Marcos Flores and Campeon Jr

 

The only title match on the card looks to be the six man bout between The Swarm and Los Monteros & Tricolor Jr, which will of course be for the OLLIE Six Man title. However, both the Lucha/Sandoval vs Estrella/North Star and Lopez/Ruiz vs Flores/Campeon tag matches could have obvious implications regarding the Mexican and Universal championship respectively.

 

We have a special predictions contest going on this month, with the reader with the highest total of correct picks getting a very special prize! The prize will not be revealed publicly until after the show, but let's just say that this one is a big one!

OLLIE - Amanecer del Nuevo Día

Labertino Jr vs El Lenador Loco

 

This one did not last long. The wild Lenador Loco was brutal in his dismantling of Labertino. However, perhaps not taking into account that he was no longer in a Japanese death match promotion, Loco was a victim of the stricter rules of OLLIE. He was disqualified in two straight falls for first leveling Labertino with a chair, and the second disqualification came when he tore Labertino's mask from his head. Luckily referee Ref Benn was able to get Loco out of the ring before any further damage was done and get a towel to cover the head of Labertino as he was carried out to the back. Still, Labertino was technically the winner.

 

Winner: Labertino Jr (2 straight falls - 7:20) D-

Mr. Lucha III & Huracan Sandoval Jr vs. La Estrella & North Star Jr

 

A match with possible title implications as it pertains to Mr. Lucha III's Mexican championship, this was a fairly even matchup despite what the final result would appear. Mr Lucha in particular was quite strong in this encounter, but La Estrella wasted no time in showing the type of wrestler he is - quick, agile, and incredibly sneaky. The team of La Estrella and North Star shockingly won in two consecutive falls, North Star taking the first over Sandoval with a springboard victory roll, and the second coming when La Estrella again pinned Sandoval by utilizing a rolling spider cradle with a firm grip on the ropes for extra measure.

 

Winners: La Estrella & North Star Jr (2 straight falls - 11:08) D

Dos Phoenix vs. Extraordinaro Jr & La Bestia Purpura

 

The final of the three debuts of the evening, La Bestia Purpura teamed up with Extraordinaro Jr to take on the premier tag team in OLLIE, Dos Phoenix. Again, this one saw a clean sweep, as Dos Phoenix took both of the falls. The first was against Purpura, whose inexperience saw him fall victim to a quick cradle as he gloated to some fans at ringside, allowing Phoenix III to get a quick point. The second came via pinfall, when Phoenix II hit a northern lights suplex with a beautiful bridge on Extraordinario Jr.

 

Winners: Dos Phoenix (2 straight falls - 12:21) D-

The Swarm vs. Los Monteros and Tricolor Jr ©

 

The only title match of the night was a big one, as Trios champions Los Monteros and Tricolor Jr took on the evil Swarm. A very even contest, the first fall came when Tricolor was pinned via a German suplex from Swarm III after sending Swarm II flying through the ropes with a springboard missle dropkick. Gino Montero in particular seemed quite upset with Tricolor after this fall, but the team rebounded quickly when Luis Montero Jr scored a quick submission victory over Swarm I with a rolling armbar. Still, the final fall was quite shocking as Swarm I sent Tricolor crashing into Luis who was standing on the apron. Gino then surprisingly snapped and blasted Tricolor in the face with a right hand, sending him right into a Missle Knee Strike from Swarm I. Gino walked out of the match, leaving Luis looking quite confused and The Swarm as the new Trios champions.

 

Winners and new Trios champions: The Swarm (Two falls to one - 15:40) D+

Phoenix I vs. El Critico

 

The semi main event of the evening was a big one, as the devlish El Critico did battle against Phoenix I. A very solid matchup, although not living up the expectations of those in attendance, this one was fairly even and saw both men trade the first two falls, splitting it one to one. The final fall came nearly 20 minutes into the contest, when El Critico rolled up Phoenix I from behind and grabbed a handful of tights behind the back of Ref Benn.

 

Winner: El Critico (Two falls to one - 19:20) D+

Following the contest, Phoenix I was understandably irate at El Critico's actions, and protested his position with his opponent. El Critico seemed amused at first, but then eventually seemed to give in. He extended his hand to Phoenix, but this proved to be just a ruse as began to assault Phoenix in the center of the ring. However, Critico's chief rival El Leon was quick to make the save, running down to the ring and chasing Critico away

Nicolas Lopez and Rafael Ruiz vs. Marcos Flores and Campeon Jr

 

The main event was a tremendous encounter, as rivals Marcos Flores and Universal champion Nicolas Lopez did battle in tag action. The battle was a fierce one and a long one, nearly hitting a half hour in length. The match was the epitome of a lucha contest, with the two teams trading falls with Flores and Campeon playing fair and Lopez and Ruiz cheating at every conceivable opportunity. Campeon scored the first fall over Ruiz with a beautiful diving headbutt from the top, but Ruiz avenged himself by submitting Campeon with a seated neck vice in the second fall. However, the big attraction was the third fall between Flores and Lopez, with both men coming within a hair of pinning the other multiple times. The ending came when Flores dodged a running tackle from Lopez that saw the champion fly through the ropes, making Ruiz the legal man. Flores through Ruiz into the ring and quickly snapped a quick roll up for the victory, two falls to one.

 

Winners: Marcos Flores and Campeon Jr (Two falls to one - 29:15) C

Following the contest, Nicolas Lopez regained his senses and sought counsel in the ring with his new manager, Padre Carrasco. Flores stood in the ring as the two men conferred, with Carrasco finally grabbing a mic and addressing Flores. Carrasco stated that Lopez admitted Flores was the better man tonight, and that he would like to offer Flores a shot at the Universal title at next month's show if Flores would accept. Flores smiled from ear to ear and shook Carrasco's hand before being somewhat predictably blindsided by Lopez, who continued to assault Flores with Carrasco's help before finally leaving the ring.

Lots of 3's on the board, but Hyde Hill takes the win! Your prize, good sir, is to pick one of these three free agents to replace the borderline useless Dragon Americano on the roster! Your choices are:

 

El Diamante Azul

El Orguloso

Sunburst

 

Choose wisely, Hyde Hill, and others feel free to try and sway his judgement.

Does it have to be one of those three? As I feel there are better free agents out there hehe. Anyway cool idea. Of those three El Orguloso. If I have more range: Dragon Del Arco Iris Jr or El Hijo Del Zonk.

 

At some point I'll be opening up a working agreement with FCW more than likely, so those two should have a stint in the company. But for now, El Oruloso it is!
