TCW: The Never Ending Journey

Recommended Posts

Once Upon A Time


In 1996 multi millionaire and lifelong wrestling fan, J.K. Stallings Jr. invested his considerable wealth into what would soon become the Hollyweird Grappling Company. With former SWF World Heavyweight Champions Sam Strong, Rip Chord and Dread and future stars such as Liberty, Ricky Dale Johnson and BLZ Bubb at HGC’s disposal, the American professional wrestling scene that had once been so thoroughly dominated by Richard Eisen and co, now had a very different look.





As the years rolled by and the new millennium dawned, HGC had shown that they were well and truly a thorn in the SWF’s side but alas, something still wasn’t quite right. The reason SWF had proved so successful was because they had carved out a niche in the wrestling market. SWF went against the traditionalistic style of years gone by and opted for a more entertainment based product, with emphasis on characters and skits whilst the actual in-ring wrestling itself took a backseat. The fans ate it up and the SWF rose to the summit of the mountain, a position which they still hold with a vice-like grip today.


HGC could only imitate the SWF; it couldn’t better what the competition had to offer. There were rumblings of discontent in the locker room in late 2003 and it was plain to see that many were frustrated with the path the company was treading. The boys knew that there was the potential for something great, something that if handled right could truly challenge the SWF for supremacy. Unfortunately, for all the money the young J.K..Stallings had, he couldn’t see what everyone else did and rumours of the company’s demise ran rampant. That is until a certain former SWF employee took the reins in 2004.




Tommy Cornell was lauded by many as a future star in professional wrestling at the young age of 18 and indeed his career started with great promise and he landed himself an SWF contract in short order. Unfortunately in the promised land of the sport, Cornell found himself as an afterthought in the booking and was routinely jobbed out to SWF competitors one and all. After a couple of years, the young Cornell had had enough and refused to resign a contract extension and instead set sail for HGC.


By 2004, Cornell had proved himself to be a superb in-ring talent and all around great worker and this saw him shoot up the card at a steady rate. With HGC flagging in creative direction, Cornell took a bold step and confronted J.K. Stallings and laid out a plan that would turn out to be a momentous shift in the land of Hollyweird.

And Then There Was Light


After much deliberation, J.K. Stallings was willing to relinquish creative control to Cornell who had assured him that he knew what it took to take HGC above SWF in the promotional wars. One of Cornell’s first acts as head of creative was to re-christen the promotion. To say that this did not sit well with Stallings would be an understatement to say the absolute least and the whole deal nearly came crashing down before it had fully gotten underway.


Cornell and Stallings butted heads for the first of many such occasions on this contentious issue that to this day, Stallings refuses to talk about. Cornell lambasted Hollyweird Grappling Company as a poor and inappropriate name for a top wrestling promotion and well.......any promotion at all for that matter. Tommy’s vision was for a product that could compete with SWF on every level and the initials HGC would play no further role in the second biggest promotion in the United States.




In the early spring of 2004, Total Championship Wrestling was born. Cornell showed that he was a man of his word and TCW’ s focus shifted from being an SWF knockoff to a promotion that took pride in the wrestling product. A happy medium between quality wrestling and engaging storylines was found and TCW rapidly grew in popularity.


However, around the summer of 2008, TCW was struck with a succession of big injuries that interrupted some of the key storylines at the time and this theme continued throughout the end of 2008 and most of 2009. During this period, TCW’s momentum had skidded to a halt and this was further effected by the down turn in the business as a whole.



Two key Syndicate members were struck down with long term injuries.


Fortunately, by November of ’09 things appeared to be getting back on track and slowly but surely business once again began to increase. As it currently stands in January of 2010, TCW is full of promise both in and out of the squared circle. The Syndicate, comprising Tommy Cornell and Wolf Hawkins are continuing their battle with the alliance of Ricky Dale Johnson and Joey Minnesota. TCW World Champion, Rocky Golden is being presented with his biggest challenge to date as he faces the legend that is Sam Keith in a battle to see who the best in the world really is. Troy Tornado has welcomed Benny Benson into TCW with multiple beat downs and Eddie Peak has rolled out the red carpet for the recently returned Bryan Vessey. Ino and Law have had continued problems ever since the day Law joined the Syndicate and in doing so, betrayed the Japanese warrior. Joshua Taylor and Edd Stone have resolutely defended their International and All-Actions titles respectively and The New Wave continue to prove why they are one of the best tag teams in wrestling.




So, here we are. TCW has clearly seen its fair share of ups and downs in its storied 13 year history, but one thing is still certain.........you ain’t seen nothing yet!

Nice start so far, London. Definitely looking forward to see where you take things with this one.


Nice backstory, I'm in for this :D


Thanks guys. It is nice to see some early interest. :)


p.s. Writer's note has been added. Next up, the TCW roster.

Missing In Action?


The TCW roster as a whole may be a bit smaller than some were expecting and indeed a few roster members as of December '09 are noticeable by their absence from the current list. The reason behind this is really quite simple; certain elements of their game need improving before they can be of any real use to the promotion and that is where MAW comes into the picture.




Rip Chord was one of the original workers in HGC and a cornerstone from which the promotion built its sturdy base. Now a promoter himself, Chord has remained on good terms with those in what is now known as TCW and was recently offered a proposition from Tommy Cornell which he gladly accepted.




That proposition involved MAW becoming a developmental league for TCW. Already there has been a great deal of activity between the two companies and such talent as Charlie Thatcher, Genghis Rahn and Flying Jimmy Fox have been sent there to improve their overall games in the hope of a speedy return to the big stage. Not only have current TCW stars joined MAW, but there has also been a flurry of activity from newly signed workers who have yet to debut for the company. However, those individuals will not be named until they appear on TCW tv. Hey, there has to be some level of mystery right? The short term plans are for a couple of the new acquisitions to appear in the coming months but work is still being done in that regard.




Be sure to stay tuned for further updates. The TCW Presents Total Wrestling card will be posted shortly.

TCW welcomes 2010 with another edition of Total Wrestling on GNN Total Sports and from the looks of things, this show looks like it could be a humdinger.


The opening contest of the night will see the All-Action champion, Edd Stone team up with Freddy Huggins as the Canadian Animals go up against the L.A. Connection. All four of these men are known for their unquestionable bright futures, the question is, who will have enough on the night to emerge victorious?


Following this we have a non title match between the TCW International champion, Joshua Taylor and the big rugged southerner, Texas Pete. Taylor will no doubt be looking to prove why he is the International champion but that may be easier said then done against Texas Pete. Don't expect this one to be pretty.


Tag team action will feature next as the pairing of Bryan Vessey and Danny Fonzarelli will do battle against The Great White, Eddie Peak and his partner for the evening, American Buffalo. Buffalo and Peak will clearly be the bigger team, but don't count out the experience of Bryan Vessey. Will Vessey be able to get a measure of revenge on Peak for his less than courteous behaviour since Bryan's TCW return?


Troy Tornado will be looking to show his dominance over TCW newcomer Benny Benson when they go one on one. Benson already has a surprise win over Tornado, can he earn another?


The Syndicate and Alliance feud continues in the main event of the evening as Wolf Hawkins goes against Joey Minnesota in singles competition. Tommy Cornell and RDJ will certainly be keeping an eye out on how their younger allies fair and we wouldn't be surprised to see either man make an appearance during the course of the bout.


Also Sammy Bach has announced that he wishes to address a certain TCW competitor during the course of the show and Tommy Cornell has scheduled time for a Syndicate message. Be sure to tune in this Tuesday!

The Canadian Animals w/Laura Huggins vs The L.A. Connection

The Canadian Animals w/Laura Huggins vs The L.A. Connection

Just a guess on this one,


Joshua Taylor vs Texas Pete (non-title)

Pete wins building to a title rematch.


Bryan Vessey & Danny Fonzarelli vs Eddie Peak & American Buffalo w/Floyd Goldworthy

Danny takes the fall here.


Troy Tornado vs Benny Benson

Troy continues Benny's rude welcome.


Wolf Hawkins vs Joey Minnesota

Gotta go with Wolf here.


Don't really know much about TCW, but if this is half as good as your renders, it will be awesome.

I've never been a big TCW fan, since I loved HGC and it was stolen away from me. Alas, I've decided to give them a chance this time :)


The Canadian Animals w/Laura Huggins vs The L.A. Connection

I like these two, so it's more hope than anything.


Joshua Taylor vs Texas Pete (non-title)

Non-title suggests a Pete victory.


Bryan Vessey & Danny Fonzarelli vs Eddie Peak & American Buffalo w/Floyd Goldworthy

I'm a big fan of Peak from the ol' DaVE days, so I'm marking out.


Troy Tornado vs Benny Benson

No idea to be honest, but the preview's emphisis on Benson's win last time makes me think revenge is in order.


Wolf Hawkins vs Joey Minnesota

Again, I don't know. I seem to prefer heels so I might as well complete the set :p

I'm a HUGE TCW fan! Always interested to see how others play my favorite promotion in the game.


The Canadian Animals w/Laura Huggins vs The L.A. Connection

~In my games I try to get Chance Fortune and Aaron Andrews over.


Joshua Taylor vs Texas Pete (non-title)

Non-Title usually means the guy without the belt will win. I could still see Joshua Taylor getting the win though.


Bryan Vessey & Danny Fonzarelli vs Eddie Peak & American Buffalo w/Floyd Goldworthy

I like the menacing heels a lot.


Troy Tornado vs Benny Benson

I can't stand Benny Benson.


Wolf Hawkins vs Joey Minnesota

Wolf Hawkins may be able to make Joey Minnesota humble. Not with 1 win though.

This dynasty looks amazing already. Gotta love people who pay attention to the look of the dynasty. And it's all made by you! Yeah, I'm in for this one. Never really have gotten into a TCW dynasty, though...


The Canadian Animals w/Laura Huggins vs The L.A. Connection

Gonna go with team with manager and Mr. Stone over other team I don't like as much. If Edd Stone isn't World Champion by the end of the year, I shall riot.


Joshua Taylor vs Texas Pete (non-title)

"He's the wrassler with the cowboy...hat." (Okay, someone please tell me that they got that joke.)


Bryan Vessey & Danny Fonzarelli vs Eddie Peak & American Buffalo w/Floyd Goldworthy

Hate Vessey. And the Fonz. Eddie Peak? Let there be semi-precious organs to be consumed!


Troy Tornado vs Benny Benson

Benson's name is a joke, just like his win chances.


Wolf Hawkins vs Joey Minnesota

Don't like Minnesota at all, and Hawkins is the boss's protege.

Thank you to all who have predicted. It is always enjoyable to read the reasoning behind your choices so thanks for that. Also, to get this amount of interest right off the bat is amazing. Hopefully nobody goes home dissapointed. :) The first show should be up within the hour.

TCW Presents Total Wrestling

Tuesday of Week 1, January 2010

The V. Thompson Arena

10,000 (SELL OUT!)




Jason Azaria/Kyle Rhodes



http://i761.photobucket.com/albums/xx252/LoNdOn_BeAsT/EddStoneALT.jpghttp://i761.photobucket.com/albums/xx252/LoNdOn_BeAsT/FreddyHugginsALT.jpg w/http://i761.photobucket.com/albums/xx252/LoNdOn_BeAsT/LauraHugginsALT.jpg vs http://i761.photobucket.com/albums/xx252/LoNdOn_BeAsT/AaronAndrewsALT.jpghttp://i761.photobucket.com/albums/xx252/LoNdOn_BeAsT/ChanceFortuneALT2.jpg

The Canadian Animals w/Laura Huggins vs The L.A. Connection

A good match to kick off the 2010 calendar year in TCW; all four participants loaded with potential and capable of breaking through in the upcoming year. Edd Stone, the reigning All Action Champion enters the ring with his usual flamboyant routine that gets the crowed going before the match even begins.


The bout itself is fast paced which should come as no surprise considering the four men involved. Stone and Huggins look to single out Fortune and keep him from tagging in his partner and succeed for a short while before a sweet enziguri to the back of Huggins head allows Andrews enough time to tag in and go to work, ducking a wild spinning heel kick from Stone and countering with a spinebuster. Huggins, who is just recovering from the kick of Fortune walks right into a stiff boot to the gut before he is lifted onto the shoulders of Andrews. The Death Valley Driver, that Andrews has christened the Triple A-D (The Aaron Andrews Ace Drop) puts an end to the opening contest.

The L.A. Connection defeated The Canadian Animals via pinfall

Rating: B-






We enter The Syndicate locker room where we see Wolf Hawkins sitting in a corner with his legs raised on an opposing bench. He is tossing an apple up and down; the clapping sound of every catch echoing around the room. The camera pans until Tommy Cornell is in view, applying tape to his wrists. His familiar smirk creeps onto his face as he begins to speak.


Cornell: “They say our days are numbered. They say that we will soon be no more; crushed under the weight of the resistance.”


The familiar smirk now turns into a full blown snarl.


Cornell: “A resistance lead by a man who has fallen at my feet time and time again. You know something? They can say what they like because The Syndicate’s word is gospel! Everything else is nothing more than bluster and hot air! Ricky Dale Johnson is a fool and a fool is someone to mock, not follow. Minnesota when you showed your allegiance with Ricky, I was amused. This nobody, and believe me Joey, that is what you are, deciding to put on his big boy pants and make a run at the top dogs is nothing new and quite frankly Joey, you have shown me nothing to make me think otherwise. You’ve been thrown in at the deep end boy, question is, are you going to sink or swim?”


Hawkins appears in view alongside Cornell with the apple still in hand. Cornell gives him a hearty pat on the shoulder before continuing.


Cornell: “I can answer that question for you Joey. You see, this man beside me is the future of professional wrestling and there isn’t a person out there that can deny it. Wolf Hawkins will go on just as I have and achieve greatness, whereas you Minnesota, you will be nothing more than a footnote in this business!”


Hawkins tosses the apple one more time before taking over.


Hawkins: “Take this apple. Let this be a representation of The Syndicate; a polished, smooth machine that is known universally.”


Hawkins smashes the apple against the wall and from the pulp that remains in his hand we can see a dozen or so seeds.


Hawkins: “People like Ricky Dale Johnson and Joey Minnesota want to destroy this machine because they know it is stronger than they could ever hope to be, but here’s the kicker..........you are chasing a poisoned chalice. From the remains of the apple are these seeds that signify the continuation of the apple’s existence. If you strike us down our numbers will grow stronger. The Syndicate cannot be defeated. The Syndicate is for life!”


Hawkins' smirk is eerily similar to that of Cornell’s and we now see this appear upon his face.


Hawkins: “Tonight Joey, will not be the beginning of the end for The Syndicate. Tonight we see the cracks in the resistance emerge.”






Joshua Taylor vs Texas Pete

The reigning International champion, Joshua Taylor put on a fairly paint-by-numbers performance; nothing too flashy, but just enough to get the job done. Texas Pete started the stronger of the two with his bullish offence but any lasting success was thwarted by his savvier opponent. Taylor ducked under an attempted big boot and rebounded with a chopblock. With Pete now grounded, Taylor was able to apply the Butterfly Lock for the submission victory.

Joshua Taylor defeated Texas Pete via submission

Rating: D







Joshua Taylor’s post-match celebration is cut short by the opening guitar lick of Holy Diver shortly followed by the appearance of Karen Killer and her charge, Sammy Bach.


Bach: “This is boring” clap clap, clap clap clap. “This is boring” clap clap, clap clap clap.


Every clap of the hands is done slowly for emphasis.


Bach: “Josh, Josh, Josh, Josh, Josh..........I can’t in good consciousness sit back and allow you, the human incarnation of rohypnol to continue on like this.”


Bach shakes his head before continuing.


Bach: “No. Not gonna let it happen. I’ve been watching you for a while, watching you put on one tedious performance after another and enough is enough. You have held onto the International title for six months now and that is six months too long. Don’t be fooled into thinking that I care about these fans though Josh, no...............I’m doing this for my sanity, not theirs. I’m a rock star baby and subsequently I have high standards and you just aren’t cutting it Joshua Generic.”


Killer takes the microphone from Bach as he begins to sarcastically yawn and pat his hand over his mouth.


Killer: “What Mr Bach is saying is that at Malice In Wonderland he is going to remedy the Taylor virus and in doing so, take that International title to a more deserving home.”


Taylor is clearly aggravated by this verbal attack and storms up the ramp after Bach as he and Killer disappear backstage.

Bryan Vessey & Danny Fonzarelli vs Eddie Peak & American Buffalo w/Floyd Goldworthy

Vessey and Peak make a beeline for each other before the match even officially gets underway and they brawl out of the ring and all the way backstage. Using this temporary distraction, Buffalo hits a thudding forearm to the back of Fonzarelli’s head and the referee rings for the bell to signal the beginning of the contest.


Buffalo uses heavy offensive clotheslines and slams to wear down Fonzarelli offering little in the way of a respite. Eventually Vessey reappears and starts for the ring only to be intercepted by Peak who charges him into the guardrail. American Buffalo props Fonzarelli up as Peak enters the ring and shoves him into The Great White’s waiting arms. The Peak of Perfection ends the match.

Eddie Peak & American Buffalo defeated Bryan Vessey and Danny Fonzarelli via pinfall

Rating: B






Vessey manages to pull himself into the ring to check on his tag team partner. CRACK; the sound of a steel chair colliding with the ribs of Vessey. Peak hits another two chair shots to the exposed ribs before laughing maniacally. Peak grabs Vessey by the hair and raises his head off the canvas before uttering the words.....


Peak: “Welcome Back!”





http://i761.photobucket.com/albums/xx252/LoNdOn_BeAsT/BennyBensonALT2.jpg vs http://i761.photobucket.com/albums/xx252/LoNdOn_BeAsT/TroyTornadoALT.jpg

Benny Benson vs Troy Tornado

A great match between two promising TCW competitors, both men having something to prove to their opponents. Tornado obviously still stinging from Benson making his TCW debut by accepting Tornado’s open challenge and pulling off the upset last month. Tornado feels that he has been made a fool of and is looking for a measure of retribution.


Benson uses his speed to keep Tornado guessing and is able to take the early advantage by dropping Tornado on multiple occasions with dropkicks and headscissor takedowns. An attempt at the Shockwave From Next Year causes Tornado to duck out of the way and recoup on the outside. Tornado sweeps the legs of Benson from the outside before returning to the ring and taking over for a few minutes.


The match is a back and forth affair until both men collide in mid air, sending each other hurtling out of the ring with a sickening thud. At the count of eight, both men have managed to regain a vertical base. Benson grasps onto the bottom rope and attempts to pull himself back into the ring when he gets yanked down thanks to a Star Maker from Tornado. Troy has just enough time to make it into the ring himself and with Benson unable to make the ten count, the match is over. Tornado looks worn out form the contest and cannot take his gaze off of Benson.

Troy Tornado defeated Benny Benson via countout

Rating: B






We enter Joey Minnesota’s locker room and see him being counselled by Ricky Dale Johnson; the two of them clearly in deep conversation about strategy. Upon seeing the camera, Minnesota turns to begin.


Minnesota: “The Syndicate think I am out of my depth. What was it Tommy said? Thrown in at the deep end?”


A smile creeps onto Minnesota’s face.


Minnesota: “For years I have been the product of backstage bull****; held down because I wasn’t buddies with those in the position of power. I was treated like a nuisance and undermined at every opportunity. Well times have changed and I refuse to let that happen to me here! Wolf, you think you are the chosen one because Tommy has put his stamp of approval on you. Well let me assure you that it takes a hell of a lot more than that to achieve something in this business. You have to put in the work Wolf, sitting around and eating the scraps from the Cornell table won’t get you to where you want to be, but soon enough you will come to realise this.


RDJ and I are willing to fight against Cornell and his iron fist ruling. We refuse to lie down and be a doormat for The Syndicate. 2010 will be remembered as the year Cornell and his lackeys lost their hold over TCW.......I guarantee it!


The camera turns to RDJ who has a big smile on his face.


RDJ: “Oh and Tommy............don’t think you will be able to interfere in tonight’s main event. I won’t allow it! And if you do decide to try me, you’ll be able to look forward to a cold, stiff glass of Sothern Justice!”

Joey Minnesota vs Wolf Hawkins

These two wrestlers have been earmarked by many as future world champions, but on this night, pride is what is at stake. Minnesota determined to prove that he can hang with the so called big boys; Hawkins to show that Cornell’s faith is not misguided. What unfolds is a 30 minute showcase of what both men have to offer and boy can they put on a show.


Minnesota constantly on the lookout for a Cornell appearance, surrenders the early advantage after the feeling out process and Hawkins goes to work with stiff kicks and nice suplexes. Minnesota fought his way back into the contest after narrowly avoiding a top rope missile dropkick by ducking underneath. The two began to trade move for move with one another, each one getting bigger as the match wore on. A Full Moon Rising from Hawkins was caught by Joey and turned into the Minnesota salute for the winning pinfall.

Rating: B






As soon as Minnesota regained his feet he is swiftly dropped with a Guilt Trip from Tommy Cornell who has rushed the ring. Hawkins soon joins in and the two Syndicate members are stomping away at Minnesota before the dulcet tones of A County Boy Can Survive begin to play.


Ricky Dale Johnson ducks under a clothesline of Cornell’s and returns fire with his own leaping lariat. Hawkins makes a hasty exit before he meets the same fate. Tommy is helped back up the ramp by Wolf who is yelling expletives at Minnesota and RDJ who are standing united in the centre of the ring, staring down The Syndicate as the show comes to an end.


Show Rating: B
