Guest Booker: Legacy Edition

The Pro Wrestling Integrity of Shane Allman

 

 

 

For the final installment of the mildly popular Guest Booker series, we have partnered our most difficult TEW dynasty game task with one of the most interesting men in all of professional wrestling, Shane Allman.

 

 

To say Shane Allman hated his time in WWWE is an understatement. But whether he agreed or disagreed with the way Turner Paige ran his company, he had a front row seat in wrestling school and was always his star pupil. Paige, Terry Thunder, Guy Lothario: THE power players in the business, all had a lesson to teach, a cautionary tale, or a trait to emulate or oppose. Allman learned at the feet of the masters.

 

 

“Everything is about selling tickets. Everything. Above all else.” -Turner Paige

 

 

“Loyalty from the fans is priceless. Loyalty in the business is worthless.” - Guy Lothario

 

 

“After me, you come first.” - Terry Thunder

 

 

Allman moved up the ranks creatively and soon had a hand in creating characters and catchphrases for some of the biggest and most bankable stars of WWWE’s run, such as Chaperone and Drake Richards.

 

 

“And you know I love the indy stuff as much as the marks do. I am them; I’m the mark who got the right job at the right time and ended up writing for the fed I grew up watching on TV. My dream, right? You know the saying “be careful what you wish for’? - Shane Allman

 

 

The slow but eventual demise of Turner Paige’s overlord company gave way to Allman’s vision. His own promotion. In his hometown.

 

 

Pro Wrestling Integrity. Aptly named, it was.

 

 

It was going to be everything that WWWE wasn’t and could never be.

 

 

Respected.

 

 

How could it not be?

 

 

With a respected, straight shooter like Shane Allman at the helm, it's a sure bet.

(OOC: Thanks for the welcome and the comments everyone. I'm excited to get rolling with one last project. The jhd-verse really fired me up creatively again being such an unpainted canvas on the board so far. I'm really psyched with the concept and the challenges, twists, and turns that lie ahead. After you read "The Scenario" below, let me know what you think about the set-up. So, without further jabbering....let's do this. :) )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

-The Scenario-

 

 

 

 

It is said the quietest calm is before the storm.

 

 

Pro Wrestling Integrity has been watching AWF closely. So have CWT and Dragon Pro, the other two promotions that make up the big four; the tension has been almost tangible between the promotions who all maintain that their non aggression pacts against each other are as good as gold.

 

 

Fool’s gold.

 

 

But everyone sees the AWF making moves. It’s not like they are hiding them. The sheets are reporting meetings with some high ranking network officials. And any move toward a international television cable deal is a perceived move toward breaking the accord.

 

 

International coverage equals international popularity. And that’s a no-no.

 

 

So, after being idle for ten years, PWI starts making moves of its own.

 

 

Quietly. Respectfully.

 

 

One late night call to Derrick Moore started it all in motion. Shane Allman and PWI wanted to form an alliance with a few other promotions. Something set in stone. Something more concrete than the trembling handshake agreement between the big four.

 

 

Something real.

 

 

Moore and Allman, unbeknownst to either prior to this call, are cut from the same cloth and get on like gangbusters.

 

 

Immediately, the unpredictable Moore and his promotion PWSUX are on board.

 

 

Except for one thing.

 

 

PWSUX is bleeding money and are on the verge of going bankrupt. Shane Allman offers his financial support in exchange for Moore’s when forming an alliance between the promotions. Keeping his promotion alive is Moore’s only care. Allman gives him his word.

 

 

Much to Allman’s chagrin, however, CWT quickly confirms the word on the street: they have no interest in working with PWI, their product and ideology are too different . JD Briscoe is content to keep his borders locked up tight and ride out whatever bad weather might be on the horizon.

 

 

Dragon Pro is receptive at first, at least willing to meet, but loses a lot of interest after finding out about PWSUX’s financial woes and that Memphis is out of the mix.

 

 

But PWI never wavers. It dubs the project “The National Wrestling Alliance” or NWA.

 

 

Derrick Moore’s vocal support of the idea among insiders garners the interest of both the Seattle and Puerto Rico territories. Living paycheck to paycheck on the periphery, they are both looking for a chance to survive.

 

 

And even though CWT decides to go at it alone, the support of LWA, SWA, PWSUX , and Mexico’s ILL is enough to finally convince Dragon Pro to join the fold, unifying six promotions against the oncoming juggernaut that would be the international level and extinction agent, AWF.

 

 

Good guys vs. Bad guys.

 

 

It would make a great feel good movie….

 

 

If any of it were true, that is.

 

 

The reality is:

 

 

The AWF/cable television executive meetings were a manufactured story.

 

 

Thanks to Shane Allman.

 

 

PWSUX is about to be bought out and stripped to the bone.

 

 

By Shane Allman.

 

 

The National Wrestling Alliance, the group that he spearheaded, unifying the underdog territories against the oncoming offensive of the evil empire, is a ghost; a ruse.

 

 

Courtesy of Shane Allman.

 

 

Everyone in the wrestling world is looking to Los Angeles, gearing up for war.

 

 

But the real enemy, the real danger, is coming from the other direction.

 

 

Boston.

 

 

And it’s coming under the banner of integrity.

 

 

Call him Mr. Allman; he’s here and he’s in the hot seat.

 

 

And it’s going to get hotter and hotter as we go.

 

 

Are you ready for the final installment of Guest Booker?

Guest Booker: Legacy Edition

The Pro Wrestling Integrity of Shane Allman

 

 

 

 

-The Game-

 

 

Shane Allman will, using TEW 2010, will play out the current scenario (laid out in the post above, under the heading "The Scenario"). Using PWI ,his objectives are to maintain the illusion of an NWA promotions alliance between Dragon Pro, SWA, LWA, and PWSUX as long as possible without anyone suspecting him of playing them against each other….all while painting the AWF as the actual enemy.

 

 

Simultaneous to that, he must always be privately trying to undercut, cheat, ruin, or otherwise damage the companies he claims to be aligned with while, at the same time, waging a public war with the AWF as the hood ornament of the NWA.

 

 

The goal?

 

 

Beat AWF (and everyone else) to national and then decimate them all.

Guest Booker: Legacy Edition

The Pro Wrestling Integrity of Shane Allman

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I’m not going to lie, the idea for this Guest Booker scenario is something I approached them with. It is something that’s very near and dear to my heart.”

 

 

 

“And that’s because it’s something that almost happened.”

 

 

 

“Well…..almost. It only happened in my head. Up until now.”

 

 

 

“In reality, my conversation with Derrick Moore was really a conversation with his ex-wife about the possible availability of using the PWSUX name and logo (which she owned after their divorce) for an invasion angle I had dreamt up to coincide with our new pay-per-view deal once SUX finally croaked.”

 

 

 

“She was a drunk and a whore and could’ve cared less about the wrestling business.”

 

 

 

“I banged her a couple of times last year, after my surgery.”

 

 

 

“When my prescription for oxy’s ran out, so did her interest in my junk store…..”

 

 

 

“But one thing she did have interest in was screwing over her ex. So letting us use the name came with the agreement we had to disparage both PWSUX and Derrick Moore at every opportunity.”

 

 

 

“The funny thing is, I thought about it. Long and hard.”

 

 

 

“Is that the route I wanted to go with Pro Wrestling Integrity?”

 

 

 

“In the end, I made the agreement, but simply vowed to never use my ownership rights to the PWSUX name, choosing instead to keep it from anyone else.”

 

 

 

“Not a lot of people know that.”

 

 

 

“Essentially, I decided that I wanted to keep PWI on the up and up. Considering my reputation in the business as a straight shooter and one of the boys until the end; I guess I didn’t think ruining it all for one angle was the way to go.”

 

 

 

“But in the coming days, I thought about it some more. “

 

 

 

“I mean really thought about it.“

 

 

 

“I let that dark part of my personality come out more. The malicious, vindictive bastard that lived inside me that no one knew about; I let him surface while I was day-dreaming.”

 

 

 

“What if I bought PWSUX on it’s deathbed ? What if I kept the purchase a secret? What then? How could I make that work for me?”

 

 

 

“The next step made so much sense, I almost laughed when I started connecting the dots.”

 

 

 

“With another company under my control, I could use their “alliance” to create the illusion of two companies coming together. With the climate the way it was in the business then, it would be automatically assumed that the two companies’ union was about keeping them afloat.”

 

 

 

“And then, with the other paranoid owners assuming that the two unifying promotions knew something that they didn’t, it would only be a matter of time before the union expanded.”

 

 

 

“Maybe not all of them, but enough of them. Enough of the ships to say you sunk the armada.”

 

 

 

“But, in unifying to defend yourself against something, you need an enemy. And, in this case, you’d need an enemy that had the air of invincibility necessary to make unifying your promotion with a group of others the prudent idea.”

 

 

 

“Enter the AWF.”

 

 

 

“There’s no question that AWF is the company that everyone automatically assumes is the heir to the WWWE’s international throne. It would only take one incident for everyone to think they were on their way toward breaking the pact between the big four and headed out on their own.”

 

 

 

 

“And here’s my dark passenger letting himself out again; what if instead of waiting for something to happen, we created the “incident” in question that leads to AWF becoming public enemy number one?”

 

 

 

 

“It could be anything. Since I’m spinning the yarn, I’d set up a meeting between a contact I have at ACE and someone from the AWF. Neither one would really know why they were having the meeting, but I’d have someone take photos and leak them to the online sheets before morning came the next day.”

 

 

 

“That’d shake ‘em all up.”

 

 

 

“Playing this game, making a run for the top in THAT world…..the one I’ve created in my mind; the one that is so very different from the way things are playing out for PWI currently, is going to be a lot of fun.”

 

 

 

“I’ve always wondered about my instincts. About how I think, in different situations, I could have played people against each other. I think I could have created chaos in the industry.”

 

 

 

“Actually, I know I could have. You'll see.”

>2012

>thinking Millionaire Derrick Moore or PWSUX are short on money

 

>2012

>Allman thinking his spherical, blob like body has any possible chance with Moore's wife

 

Unreliable narrator is unreliable :cool:

 

 

I figured a good divorce story in my made up version of the jhd-verse might be enough to explain his current financial hardships.

 

And make no mistake, Allman's chances with her shot up with his pocket full of painkillers; his being the peach colored Grimace notwithstanding.

 

Glad you're onboard, Celt.

 

You too Shutout.

I've loved every one of your dynasties. I've said it before when these guest booker things started it was the most original idea I had seen. Each one has been better than the last (or atleast close). I'm going to give this one a shot but I know nothing of this universe so hopefully its an easy follow regardless. Looking forward to it man!

Guest Booker: Legacy Edition

The Pro Wrestling Integrity of Shane Allman

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In lieu of a straight up roster page, for those who might not be familiar with the characters of the jhd-verse, Shane Allman has agreed to do a name association-style rundown of the members of the PWI roster.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Silva Dolla

 

“A move I couldn’t get done in real life, due to our agreement with AWF, I was able to convince the Guest Booker folks to allow for the sake of ‘realism’. I was going to steal Dolla from AWF should we have gone to war, but it never came to pass and neither did Dolla coming east. But in this alternate game reality, it would’ve been my first move. You’ll see why. He could very well be the other face of the company, rivaling the Harts, in one year’s time. His character is one of a kind.”

 

 

 

 

 

<a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=EthanParo.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/EthanParo.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

Ethan Paro

 

“The future. Since his split with his brother Jay, this guy has taken off, finally putting it all together in the ring to match his impressive entertainment skills. Not one of the main players right now, but just a notch below them.”

 

 

 

<a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=JimmySouth.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/JimmySouth.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

Jimmy South

 

“The longtime manager of the Van Holt Brotherhood and the only reason their promos are tolerable.”

 

 

 

 

 

<a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=TylerMercury.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/TylerMercury.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

Tyler Mercury

 

“A guy I have a lot of plans for, “The Man of the Millennium” can do it all. His character overshadows it, but with the way he’s developing, in a year or less, he’ll be able to hang with the very best we have between the ropes.”

 

 

 

<a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=JayParo.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/JayParo.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

Jay Paro

 

“Jay’s feud with his brother is one of the three main stories that are going when the game starts. It’s going to give him a chance to build up his overness that I can leech for others should I not be able to come up with something to do with him immediately following the feud with Ethan.”

Ricky Fyre

 

“Midcarder of modest means and terrible, fun, gimmick. I see him doing some jobs.”

 

 

 

 

 

<a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=MrBertram.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/MrBertram.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

Mr. Bertram

 

“Famed manager doing nothing right now. Either that will change or he’ll be looking for work. One or the other.”

 

 

 

 

 

<a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=JesseVanHolt.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/JesseVanHolt.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=MartinVanHolt.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/MartinVanHolt.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

Jesse and Martin Van Holt

 

“The Van Holt Brotherhood have been the PWI Tag Team Champions five times and are a pillar of what we have been doing and what we will be doing going forward. Their ongoing feud with the Hart family is the hottest attraction we have right now.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

<a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=ScottHart.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/ScottHart.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=NickHart.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/NickHart.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=JamesGilmour-Hart.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/JamesGilmour-Hart.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

Scott Hart Nick Hart James Gilmour-Hart

 

“The Hart Dynasty is where we hang our hats; they are the go to guys for us and will be barring anything major. Scott holds our main belt and is our number one guy. Nick is just a tick behind him, popularity wise but might be the better mat wrestler. And James Gilmour-Hart is a mammoth 282 pound youngster that is getting groomed for greatness by the other two. He might not be the wrestler the eldest two are, but his charisma and his look go along with his power to form the holy triad.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

<a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=ShayKinsella.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/ShayKinsella.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

Shay Kinsella

 

“A blast from the past that re-signed and will start out right near the top of the card, looking to recapture the glory of his youth, when he was the PWI Heavyweight Champion. I’m hopeful he can still wrestle at the level he did when he was last with us.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

<a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=DaveCarrasco.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/DaveCarrasco.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=JanuaryKyle.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/JanuaryKyle.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

Dave Carrasco and January Kyle

 

“Our broadcast team, and one that I’m very happy with. In a world filled with face play-by-play and heel color guy, our team focuses on the matches and the moves and the stories underneath them instead of making stupid jokes or shilling merchandise. I think our fans especially, like that.”

Ryan Doherty

 

“Will jump off of anything. I will always find something for you to do if that’s your claim to fame.”

Mike O’Reilly

 

“A stocky little bad ass from Boston that everyone seems to like wrestling even though he’s stiff as a scoutmaster on jamboree.”

The Bollywood Knights

 

“The current Tag team Champions and a team that people really love to hate. Plus, they are sneaky talented and are the type of team that, with a steady diet of Van Holts and Harts could be trained up into main event level guys.”

 

 

 

 

 

<a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=LeroyDalton.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/LeroyDalton.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

Leroy Dalton

 

"Our biggest competitor, physically, in the company. The fans like him and his work is okay; we'll see if we can come up with anything for him going forward or whether he'll be getting "injured' and sidelined while we keep him away from the AWF."

Anderson Peters

 

“One of those tweeners that can wrestle his face off but has little character for the fans to latch onto. This used to be the case with two thirds of my roster, but I do what the market dictates.”

 

 

 

 

<a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/?action=view&current=ElEstandar.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w286/NoNeck_photo/ElEstandar.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

El Estandar

 

“Our current TV Champion, El Estandar is a guy who I really like and I’ve got a few storyline ideas for him. We’ll see how the fans take to him being more than just a five minutes of in-ring guy a night and go from there.”

-Show #1-

 

PWI: Integrity, Tradition, Honor

LIVE Saturday's on NCTV

The Den (NE) 2,000 (Sold Out)

 

 

 

 

-The first show of PWI’s new era begins with the usual camera pan around the arena, focusing on the hardcore ringside fans who pump their fists along with the show’s theme song. Eventually, things settle upon Dave Carrasco and January Kyle at the broadcast location, and the best play-by-play team in the business sells the upcoming show. (C+)

 

 

-The action starts on the heels of the hard sell, with former AWF star Silva Dolla debuting on PWI television to a hearty amount of jeers from the fans in the know. However, Dolla makes quick work of his opponent, the masked El Estandar, dropping him flat with a “Dolla Maker” (Stunner) and winning the PWI TV Title in his first appearance. (C+)

 

 

-Silva Dolla stays in the ring until after the commercial break, mean mugging the fans while standing on the second rope, tugging at his flak-jacket and adjusting his POLICE issue ballcap, which is pulled low once again. After reminding people that he is a big league star from the “other” company he makes his intentions known. “All I’ve ever heard about Pro Wrestling Integrity is some bull-sheeet about the Hart family; the Hart Dynasty or whatever. They can wrestle rings around people, huh? I’m going to teach those boys a thing or two about being street tough. Gonna’ crack they skulls against each other and show ‘em who I am. Holla!” (B)

 

 

-Things return to the ring with an exciting, yet spotty, eight man tag team match. The brash tag team champions, The Bollywood Knights team with the deposed Paro brother, Jay, and “The Man of the Millennium” Tyler Mercury sets the pace early on, separating the massive Cajun, Leroy Dalton from his partners, James Gilmour-Hart, the high flying superface Ethan Paro, and the technician, Anderson Peters. But Jay Paro’s attempt at sneaking a win while everyone is outside the ring leads to him getting trapped in Peters’ gogoplata submission and tapping wildly. Vance Cole appears on the stage and announces that, with the win, Peters has earned a future shot at the TV Title.(C-)

 

 

-The next segment is a pre-produced video package chronicling the rise of Martin and Jesse, The Van Holt Brotherhood, as a tag team in PWI. From their earliest beginnings as curtain jerkers to their ascent to the top, where they have held the PWI tag titles a record five times. (B-)

 

 

-Coming back from the video, Boston toughguy Mike O’Reilly is already in the ring, bouncing back and forth on the balls of his feet, awaiting the return of Shay Kinsella to PWI. Kinsella, a former PWI Heavyweight Champion, had been out of action for almost the whole last year nursing various injuries. But on this night, he looks like he did in his prime, hot-shotting around the ring before catching the reeling O’Reilly with an “Urbana Native” (Superkick) and getting the one, two, three. As he celebrates, he makes the ‘belt around my waist’ motion several times, giving everyone a glimpse into his intentions going forward. (C-)

 

 

-With the main event just around the corner, the show once again returns to the broadcast location where Carrasco and Kyle set the scene for yet another chapter in the ongoing battle between the two best tag teams in the business, The Van Holt Brotherhood and the British Hart Foundation. Things have gotten so very competitive between the two squads of late, that the titles (currently held by the Bollywood Knights) have become secondary. (B-)

 

 

-When they do finally hook up, it is everything it’s cracked up to be and more. The chemistry and unstoppable game of one upsmanship between the VHB and the British Hart Foundation keeps the fans one the edge of their seats, with the peaks and pops coming at a rate similar to fireworks with the finale being a texbook tag team wrestling super clinic. That is…..until the bell begins ringing wildly, much to the dismay of the Boston fans, signaling the end of the television time for the week and declaring the match a time limit draw. All four men stare at the timekeeper, shocked, and seemingly frozen in the spot they were in at the time of the bell’s signal. (B)

I wasn't around for any of your previous diaries, but this looks interesting and I do like the jhdVerse so I'll be reading.

 

 

I've loved every one of your dynasties. I've said it before when these guest booker things started it was the most original idea I had seen. Each one has been better than the last (or at least close). I'm going to give this one a shot but I know nothing of this universe so hopefully its an easy follow regardless. Looking forward to it man!

 

Don't know how I missed these, but I did. Great to find another couple folks have jumped aboard. Stennick, thanks for your kind words about the Guest Booker idea. Now that I've started with it, I can't even begin to think about doing a diary without viewing it through that lens. I even saw another Guest Booker thread on the board the other day, if I'm not mistaken. I'm going to have to give it a look along with Tiberious4's jhd-verse diary sometime soon.

 

Show #2 will be up in the next couple of days. The weekly TV shows will be done in the style I did the last one in and the PPV's will be done in my traditional long winded and wordy manner.

-Show #2-

 

PWI: Integrity, Tradition, Honor

LIVE Saturday's on NCTV

Perry Hall (GL) 2,000 (Sold Out)

 

 

 

 

 

 

-This week’s show starts in the ring, just as the brand new TV champion Silva Dolla is introduced to a huge chorus of boos. His opponent, El Estandar comes flying out of the gate before the bell, trying to get some sort of advantage against the man who took his title last week, but it is of little use after Dolla blasts him with a reverse kick to the groin behind the referee’s back and goes to work. A clothesline and a gut-wrench powerbomb lead right into the “Dolla’ Maker” (stunner) and, almost as fast as it started, the match is over and done with. (C+)

 

 

-He is not done though; Silva Dolla struts around the red and black canvas, flashing his grill at the ring girls and snapping his fingers in the ring announcer’s face until he hands his microphone between the ropes. “Seems the Hart’s heard what I was spittin’ last week and got themselves a private locker room backstage tonight. No bother. They’ll get some street justice served up sooner rather than later. I think first up at the big dog’s dish should be the pup, James Gilmour-Hart. Keep your eyes peeled, playa. I’m strapped and in every dark alley nationwide. Holla!” (B+)

 

 

-As soon as Silva Dolla clears out, the lights dim again and the ring announcer climbs into the ring to introduce the high flying superface Ethan Paro and his opponent, “The Man of the Millennium”, Tyler Mercury. The match threatens to steal the show as both men look to outdo the other, with high flying offense galore. Eventually though, Mercury’s vanity costs him. While he celebrates a nifty backflip elbow, Paro recovers quicker than he should and drops his opponent from behind with an inverted DDT. Seconds later, the staggering Mercury is whipped into the ropes and caught coming off, walking right into Paro’s vicious signature tilt-a-whirl over the knee backbreaker. The three count is academic. Cameras notice Ethan's angry brother Jay lurking near the merchandise tables and pretending not to watch the match as Ethan celebrates the win. (C+)

 

 

- The cameras shoot backstage where the Van Holt Brotherhood have pushed their way into the Hart family locker room and are trading punches with Nick Hart and James Gilmour-Hart. A few of the dark match wrestlers pour in behind the road agents a few security guards from the building and order is restored a few seconds later. (B-)

 

 

-And when the two teams get set to do battle after the commercial break, they both go right for the throat, things having kicked up another notch on the intensity meter. The VHB are so tough, they walk right into the Hart’s well-oiled machine guns blazing, eventually taking control and running Nick through the ringer, keeping him well away from the much larger JGH, who leans over the rope in his own corner, trying to reach out to his partner. But they continually keep him away from the young buck, drilling Nick with two Van Holt-inator ‘s (Spike Pedigree) that nearly end the match before they decide to set up something more elaborate. Nick, ever slippery, rolls through during a lapse in Martin’s attention and gets to the corner. When he finally hits the ring, JGH is a monster and blows right through both Jesse and Martin Van Holt, laying them flat with running boots before hoisting one on top of the other and power-slamming them both, spiking them into the logo. With Nick waving him on, Gilmour rolls Jesse onto his back and gets the surprising three count. Vance Cole comes out onto the ramp and tells both teams that, “due to your actions backstage earlier this evening, neither of you will be receiving your match purse. That kind of nonsense will NOT be tolerated in PWI, period.” (B)

 

 

-From the Harts in the ring to the Hart on video; THE Hart, actually. Scott is profiled by a documentarian as he tirelessly works out in his expansive family gym. Weights, cardio, abs, running the ropes, sparring, hitting the heavy bag, it is all covered making the valid point that PWI Heavyweight Champion Scott Hart may very well be the best athlete in Pro Wrestling Integrity. (B)

 

 

-The main event is set up by the announce team to be a new classic, pitting the old school versus the new school, so to speak, but the tentative offense of both PWI Heavyweight Champion Scott Hart and Shay Kinsella, with neither man willing to make the first mistake, seems to hold it back somewhat. Hart is the “aggressor” and does a bit more, move-set wise, than Kinsella, stringing together a match highlight combo of a belly-to-belly suplex, a snap suplex, and a vertical suplex into and over the knee backbreaker that looks like it will end the match before Kinsella bravely forces his shoulder off the mat. When Kinsella finds a window of opportunity minute or two later, he squanders it by staying reserved, slowly walking into a back elbow instead of aggressively locking in a sleeper. Moments later, Scott has him locked in the figure-four and in no man’s land in the center of the ring. With nowhere to go, Kinsella taps. (C+)

Ht: 6'2

Finisher: Tilt-a-Whirl Backbreaker

 

 

 

Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Ethan Paro is on the fast track to the top. With his golden boy looks and his recent increase in muscle mass, Ethan is hoping to slingshot himself to singles stardom after the end of his very successful tag team run alongside his brother, Jay, mixing in a more explosive power move-set to his already top notch aerial attack and his trademark tilt-a-whirl backbreaker finisher. Their dominant run as PWI Tag Team Champions rivals that of any in the company's history. But while Jay seems to be ina downward spiral since the split, losing several matches and turning inward and acting much darker, Ethan on the other hand is prospering. Some industry insiders believe, even though Ethan won’t say it himself, that the split was a long time coming. They surely have one more, knock down, drag out fight in their future and we're thankful it's going to be in a PWI ring.

Not sure how I managed to miss two shows, but you've made a great start NoNeck! Really like the style of the shows, it is easy to read and fits the type of show very well. The booking feels very much like PWI to me too, so well done on that. I'll be looking forward to reading some more! :)

-Show #3-

 

PWI: Integrity, Tradition, Honor

LIVE Saturday's on NCTV

Arkansas Coliseum (GL) 2,000 (Sold Out)

 

 

 

-Dave Carrasco and January Kyle welcome everyone to the show, hype the monster main event (Six Man Tag Match-Harts vs. Kinsella/VHB) and in a flash, the action begins. It is a four way match between the high flying baby-faced Ethan Paro, his bitter brother Jay, The Man of the Millennium” Tyler Mercury, and the incendiary Ricky Fyre. Jay seems to avoid brother Ethan, but isolates Ricky Fyre and begins looking like he is taking charge of the match, dominating the fiery fan fave with his basic, but stiff offense. But Fyre’s modified small package attempt derails him completely and leads to Ethan taking the reigns with his opponent from last week, Mercury, who thinks he has cleverly stepped under a clothesline but is really a sitting duck for Ethan’s quick strike missile dropkick from the top. With Jay still scuffling with Fyre, Ethan lays out “The Man of the Millennium” with his tilt-a whirl backbreaker and steals the win. ©

 

 

-Backstage, The Van Holt Brotherhood sit on the benches in the locker room, taping their wrists, while their mouthpiece, the squeaky voiced, megaphone wielding, Jimmy South paces back and forth in front of them, obviously very distressed about their lack of recent success against the Hart’s. “I’m telling you guys, we aren’t going to even get a sniff of the tag team titles until we put this thing with the Harts in the rearview, daddy. That’s where the real money is, and after losing our paychecks last week thanks to your hot headedness, that’s what we need to be thinking about. Business. Tonight, it’s all business, boys.” (B)

 

 

-The PWI Tag Team Champions, The Bollywood Knights come to the ring to face the makeshift duo of Love Freedom and El Estandar amidst a myriad of good looking women who wait on the floor as the brash combo of executives goes to work defending their title. Freedom and the suddenly reeling Estandar are no match for the fluid, sneaky, in and out tag team offense employed by Singh and Vidur. They do whatever they want for about eight or nine minutes before doubling up Freedom with a slingshot suplex/top-rope cross body combo that ends the match. Dave Carrasco is impressed with them, saying, “Like them or not, these guys get better every time they are in the ring. If they’re half as good at making movies as they are at tag team wrestling, I bet they are worth a fortune.”(D-)

 

 

-After the Bollywood mob clears out, there are only a few seconds of idle time before the telltale gunshots ring out, signaling the impeding presence of PWI TV Champion Silva Dolla. He comes out slapping himself in the flak-jacket, hopping side to side and defying the odds by keeping his feet with his black pants hanging nearly halfway down. The ring announcer quickly gives up his microphone and hops back down to the floor, giving Dolla the ring and the spotlight. “Where ‘dey at? The Harts, man, where ‘dey at? I’m tired of having to bark all this noise to even have one of them pups give me a sniff. But it’s cool. Soon enough, I’ll be off my leash, feel me? Holla!” (B)

 

 

-As Dolla finishes his rant, Anderson Peters is introduced. One of the top in ring technicians in PWI, Peters won the opportunity to challenge for the TV Title by scoring the winning pinfall in an eight man tag match two weeks ago. But his chance is a short one as the match mirrors Dolla’s rematch against El Estandar last week: with the referee’s back turned, the street thug goes to what he knows and drills Peters with a shot below the belt. A boot to the head and a full steam running start into a “Dolla Maker” (Stunner) quickly leads to the one, two, three. Vance Cole comes storming out onto the stage as Dolla celebrates, “Hold it right there. I can’t very well take away a paycheck from four men for some BS last week and turn my back on what just happened, Dolla. You’ll be losing your paycheck for this week’s show....period...and Anderson Peters…..will receive a rematch for your TV Title in two weeks at ‘Night of Survival’.” ©

 

 

-After the commercial break, the show returns with a very well done, but very standard promo video for the three members of the British Hart Foundation; the main event is up next. (B)

 

 

-The ringside fans are on their feet for the duration of the main event. The Harts and the Van Holt Brotherhood, who partnered up with #1 contender Shay Kinsella, have a solid, yet somewhat unspectacular match after it appears Kinsella twists his ankle trying to slingshot himself over the top cable. JGH powers out of a “Van Holtinator” (Spike Pedigree), knocking Jesse Van Holt over the top by back-flipping Martin into him. Nick levels the gimpy Kinsella off the apron before getting Gilmour-Hart to vault him over the top rope onto Shay and Jesse. When they get back to their feet they are shocked by JGH’s agility as he leaps over the cable and topples them all yet again. Scott Hart drags Martin back toward the center of the ring, clear away from his partners who are on the verge of getting counted out. The only thing that keeps the referee from doing so are Martin’s screams, which get his attention from behind as he is locked in the champion’s figure four. There is nowhere for him to go and, with the hold cinched in, Martin taps frantically. As the British Hart Foundation reassembles in the ring victorious, Dave Carrasco takes the show home. “The Harts have really seemed to have the VHB’s number of late, but I’d be concerned that Scott is being stretched a bit too thin between holding up his part of this long running feud AND defending the PWI Heavyweight Championship. It’s got to be taking a toll on him.” ©

Ht: 6'1

 

WT: 224

Finisher: Urbana Native (Superkick)

 

 

 

Shay Kinsella, who makes his home with his family in Illinois, is the first ever Heavyweight Champion in PWI history. In the late nineties, his time overseas drew the notice of the legendary Prime Dragon who took him under his wing and trained him, adding a distinct Japanese junior streak to his very amateur mat based repertoire. His superkick (the “Urbana Native”) is one of the most efficient moves in the history of PWI. After his stint in UPJ, many pundits were calling Kinsella one of the very best wrestlers in the world. It led him back to America where he opened PWI with a title victory and ran roughshod over the opposition in the company’s infancy. However, in 2005, when his second daughter was born, Kinsella abruptly left the business at the very top of his game and remained at home, (only doing the occasional show with local indies to stay somewhat sharp)until three weeks ago, a span of over seven years. Now older, but undoubtedly wiser, can Kinsella climb back atop the PWI mountain once again and reclaim the title he vacated and never lost?

-Show #4-

 

PWI: Integrity, Tradition, Honor

LIVE Saturday's on NCTV

Grissom Auditorium (SW) 2,000 (Sold Out)

 

 

 

 

-The show starts in the ring with a four team non-title tag scramble match pitting The Bollywood Knights, Shay Kinsella and the returning Ryan Doherty, Tyler Mercury and Jay Paro, and the Van Holt Brotherhood. And even though the action is dead even and fast and furious for a few minutes, at about the five minute mark, the VHB lock things down and impose their will on the other three teams. Paro, trying out not one but two tag team partners tonight in two separate matches, seems to have a pretty good thing going with Mercury before the VHB stampede begins. But it is Mercury who takes an “Urbana Native” (superkick) from Kinsella and falls directly into Martin Van Holt’s arms, eating a “Van Holtinator” (Spike Pedigree) right afterward leaving him nearly unconscious in the middle of the ring. Jesse clears Paro with some help from Jimmy South on the floor (as Kinsella and Doherty tangle with The Bollywoods with Kinsella superkicking them both) while Martin tidies up by hooking Mercury’s far leg and getting the pinfall. (B-)

 

 

-After an earlier than usual commercial break, we return to a pre-produced video featuring PWI Heavyweight Champion Scott Hart. It is from the same documentary shoot as the one we saw last week, with Hart’s myriad of training techniques on display. This segment, however, breaks away from the physical training and shows how the Scott has pioneered the Hart family’s ability to study an scout opponents by using cutting edge state of the art technology in addition to the tried and true film session. As the documentarian notes the set up, it is apparent that all of the current energy is being focused on studying Shay Kinsella, his opponent in an ironman match at “Night of Survival”. (B)

 

 

-Jay Paro, brooding even more than usual following his loss earlier on, brings out his second “try out” partner of the evening, the stocky “Boston Suplex Machine” Mike O’Reilly, and sits idly in the corner waiting to see who their opponents will be. His eyes get as wide as some of the ringside fans’ when the British Hart Foundation’s music comes pouring out of the speakers and Scott and Nick Hart hit the ring. And while Paro and O’Reilly open some eyes individually for their performance against the Harts, as a team they are lost. Scott and Nick exploit that, keeping O’Reilly on the apron for the critical moment they turn Paro inside out with the two man powerbomb that leads to Scott dragging him back into their side of the ring and applying his deadly figure four leglock. “O’ Reilly jumps in but there’s nothing he can do. Nick Hart gets in his way long enough for Scott to really wrench on Paro and get the gruesome submission. (B-)

 

 

-Things go backstage where January Kyle is standing by with Ethan Paro. The muscular blonde is all smiles putting himself and PWI over until the talk turns to the falling out with his brother, Jay. “We’ve got some unfinished business, he and I do. I know that. But he’s obviously looking to form a new tag team with a new partner and…and…. move on…. I’m setting myself some new goals, too. Maybe not today….maybe not tomorrow, but sometime in the not too distant future, I’m going to be the PWI Heavyweight Champion. Count on it.” (B-)

 

 

-With that, Ethan Paro heads off toward the ring where his opponent, the debuting goth high flyer Kris Phoenix is being introduced among a sea of fog and red flood lights. They have a great match, with Paro’s new power moves not putting off his ability to match Phoenix’s lighting quick aerial strikes one bit. The fans are really into it as things peak at the fourteen minute mark or so. Phoenix rallies, turning a rana-turned-DDT into a chance to put the stunned Paro onto the top rope. But Ethan blocks what looks to be a superplex attempt and pulls Phoenix up beside him. They tangle for a second or two before Ethan slithers around him and comes cruising downward, turning the mess into a modified top rope, tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. The fans explode and chant “E-THAN, E-THAN”, as he autopilots himself on top of Phoenix and gets the win. (B-)

 

 

-After the final commercial break, the staccato rat-a-tat-tat of machine gun fire rings out, signaling the entrance of the snarling PWI TV Champion Silva Dolla, who comes out tugging at his flak jacket, barking, and flashing his grill at the ringside fans. The ring announcer knows the drill, leaving the microphone and clearing out. Dolla unstraps the TV and lets it fall in the ring as he hops onto the second rope to bark some more. “You know, I figured, if I talked a bunch of trash about them Hart boys, Scotty, Nicky, or Baby Huey, one of ‘em might have the sack to show up and defend they’ family name. But they don’t. They’ scared; Holla!” (B)

 

 

-Dolla’s rant is interrupted by the British Hart Foundation’s music, which spins him around, grinning. When the 6’6 267 pound James Gilmour-Hart jogs down the ramp, tearing off his warm-up top and yelling for the timekeeper to ring the bell, the already-hot-from-earlier fans spring to life once again, psyched for this much anticipated match up. Dolla and Gilmour match up very well. What they lack in technical wrestling prowess they more than make up for with impact and power. One particular haymaker back and forth draws the crowd into a spirited “YAY!/BOO!” fest. Gilmour rallies as Dolla starts looking for his finisher, the “Dolla Maker”, hoisting him onto his shoulder twice attempting to spike him with his powerslam, but each time, Dolla slides out. When JGH whips Dolla into the buckles, splashes him, and then sets him up again for the powerslam, the fans come to their feet. But again Dolla sees it coming and comes out with a huge boot to Gilmour-Hart’s face, before hopping up onto the second rope and springing off, catching him and laying him flat faced with a “Dolla Maker” (Stunner). After the three count, Dolla hops around the ring, barking, and holding the TV Title above his head with one hand. Dave Carrasco does his job and sends the show to bed. “The TV Champion is certainly a bad, bad man. Maybe not as bad as HE thinks he is, but super dangerous, nonetheless. Anderson Peters had better be ready for him at ‘Night of Survival’.” (B-)

Another excellent show NoNeck! That opening match got a fantastic grade for the eight men in it (not counting the VHB, of course). Really enjoying your portrayal of Silva Dolla too, which almost certainly would have been...borrowed...by me had I not already started <img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" />
