CGC: The More Things Change

Recommended Posts




A meeting of the minds.


Every few years I think it is a good thing to reinvent yourself. I consider myself a man with experience in that. I was a manager then I was an owner of a company that saw a meteoric rise and a catastrophic fall. The latter of course left me to go on hiatus while my buddy Mitch decided to try and keep the memory of DAVE alive in his own way. After a break I was back and this time I became the booker of a company very different from the last.


Canadian Golden Combat is not about insane violence and blood. It is something the whole family could attend with a mixture of colorful and out there characters along with more believable personalities. I have to say it was nice to make stars without making them bleed on a weekly basis to satiate what the fans wanted. That isn't to say things are perfect in the company. Like any company there are headaches from clashing egos and politics always rear their head.


It is also weird not to have the final say. It is a relief to an extent, but Alex sometimes stubborn and he is very set in doing things like his father did. This isn't a bad formula since the company has done well over the years, but at the same time it doesn't feel like there is any real progress. We have had the same stars pretty much since I took over the book and as the new year approaches I really hope to reinvent myself again as well as perhaps push the company slightly in a new direction.


Looking back on it I have had several meetings like this before. Always trying to make Alex look at options, but constantly he turns them down. I think in a way age is starting to make him look at things differently. He wants the company to stay true to its roots and I understand that, but living in the past can often lead to no future. I don't think the company would ever suffer the same fate as DAVE did, but why take the chance?


That brings us to October 2012 in a small office at the DeColt Powerhouse. Usually it is just me and Alex, but this time around Adrian Garcia came along because I felt he should be here when I bring up one of my ideas. Just a casual Saturday where the three of us have the place to ourselves after all the trainees had filtered out after being finished for the day.


"So I am curious. Why did you invite me to be here, Phil? I never really have much to do with creative aside from put my two cents in on what I want to do with Elite."


"Well you are part of what I want to talk about. Don't worry if you think it is something bad. I just felt you should be present since it deals with you on commentary."


I know Adrian well enough after the past few years. He does colour because Alex wants him to. It can be frustrating because at the same time he is supposed to be the manager of the premier stable and he hates doing double duty. This is why I am hoping to get him on my side. When I look to Alex I can already tell he is a mix of curious and apprehensive. He is probably already expecting me to say the same things I always do.


"Ahem, anyways. I have been here for over three years and I have gotten to see quite a bit. I feel as a booker I am doing well enough, but to be honest I feel like we could be doing so much more, Alex."


"Is this one of your attempts at a big change again?"


Sadly Alex knows me all too well.


"I have told you before my father did things that way and I want to continue to do so. It is the DeColt way. It allows us a good date and time for our television show and it brings in a good crowd."


"It is about change, but I don't think it is big. Alex, I know you are thinking of my background right now. I am not wanting to recreate DAVE. I want to just push the company forward and maybe compete with the Stones. Show that we can be a national power."


While there isn't an outright war between the companies I do know Alex has a bit of a sore spot when it comes to the Stone family. Not so much the family itself, but the fact his brother Steve is over there, party because of my hiring I might add, and he has perhaps become the biggest name of the four brothers. I hoped that mentioning competition with the Stone's company might interest Alex. Apparently I was right.


"A national power? Go on. How do you propose we do that?"


"I believe we have star power right now to start building a good foundation future, but I feel we have to act now rather than later. Alex, you are already thirty-eight. Jack is thirty-five. Nate, Eddie, Zeus, Dan and several others are over thirty-five right now. Our tag champs are both over fourty."


"We got youth, Phil. Eric vaulted Sean to stardom. Trent and Ricky are both under thirty too. We also have some good graduates that have started to show they could go far. Look at Skip and Donte."


"I can agree on the first three. I can even agree if you put Gargantuan there just because his size and aura alone bring people in. I can even agree with Skip and Donte, but for every Skip and Donte we get a Blockbuster and Prometheus. They are too green and I think they might hurt someone."


"Umm, can I say something?"


Adrian had kept quiet up until this point. He seemed more interested just to hear what goes behind closed doors for the first time and the sort of conversations that actually go on between Alex and I.


"I have to agree a bit with Phil. Elite is doing fine now, but what about two years from now? Dan and Eddie will be near fourty by then and Nate isn't far behind. Who would we add out of our current guys? Gargantuan maybe? Turn Zeus perhaps and add him? Even so Zeus would be close to thirty-eight in two years as well."


That was a bit unexpected, but now I am getting a bit more pleased to find out I am not the only one in the company that sort of feels the same way. Maybe to hear such things from someone like Adrian will make Alex a bit more prone to listen.


"So what ideas do you have to add talent? Wait for castoffs from the larger companies in the US? Make our own?"


"Maybe a bit of both. I don't want to just hire a guy on name value. I have people I would like to just target because I think they would do well for the company. The Powerhouse is a good stepping stone to train people, but what about creating something as a go between?"


"A child company? Those aren't exactly cheap to just up and create. Who would run it? All the people I would trust right now are needed here on the main roster."


"Well find someone that has been looking to start their own company. Offer to help fund if they agree to be our child company. Let him bring in his own people, but if we have people we want to gain experience there or even people to go there post injury to work off ring rust we can."


I am unsure how much this is working or even if Alex is even close to taking anything I have said seriously. The silence is an extended one before he finally gives something of a nod and finally replies.


"One month. Adrian, you don't have to be here, but in one month I want you to meet with me again, Phil. Do some scouting. Find people you want to bring in and people you would think are worth bringing in if I do entertain the child company. In the meantime I will talk with friends and see if anyone would be interested in such a deal."


I couldn't contain my smile. Alex was actually listening. He didn't say he would do any of it, but he did entertain the ideas brought forth. Before I could say anything in response Adrian cleared his throat and I was reminded for the other thing I wanted to bring up.


"Oh, sorry! Adrian, I wanted you to be here because in part of the changes I want to make. By the end of the year I want to be done as the General Manager. I enjoyed the role, but I want to move into something else. I was thinking if Adrian was okay we can work up something to allow him to leave colour and I would replace him. It would allow him more time to being a manager and making Elite look good."


"I don't see why we couldn't work that out. Adrian?"


We both looked to Adrian and he was just stone faced and silent. I thought that was a bad thing, but that is when he walked over to me and he actually gave me a hug. A rather awkward one that perhaps lasted a few moments too long before he finally released and stepped back. He just nodded to Alex and I while the expression, or lack there of, remained.


"I think I will be fine with that. Now if you excuse me."


We just watched as he turned and exited, then we heard some hooting and hollering which even brought a grin to Alex's face as we both got a good chuckle.


"I think that is one change we all agreed on. Phil?"




"I'll really think on this. So just do what I asked and we'll meet here in a month."


So I get a month to get ideas and check out talent. It seems many sleepless nights and coffee are in my future. I'll have to contact friends and also see if I can find tapes of the various companies we might be able to pluck from. I can only hope it will be worth it. I will bust my ass just because I am unsure if I will ever get him to consider something like this again anytime soon.

<em><span style="font-size:8px;">So much coffee and YouTube</span></em></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

It had been about a week since the meeting and pretty much any time away from my booking duties I have spent making calls and watching tape. I contacted Mitch over in Pittsburgh and we had a long talk. In the end I think some of his guys were great, but I was hesitant to pull the trigger. I am afraid Alex would get the wrong idea and shoot things down. I made note to keep tabs on a few. One of Sam Keith's boys worked there and he seemed like one of the best prospects. Nemesis' boy was there too. He was always a good kid. So different than his father. Two or three others stood out as well. Guys that all seem to have a bright future. I think Mitch has something special if he doesn't lose too many of them.</p><p> </p><p>

Beyond that I got a few tapes of various companies mostly in the US and Canada. Also just made general calls and found some interesting options to contact and see if they have any real interest to being part of the promotion. I even contacted Buddy Garner finding out he had considered coming out of retirement again, but he apparently only will do it if a larger company comes calling. That is probably for the better. Last thing I need to do is tell Alex we need to look to get younger then say we should sign a fourty year old man.</p><p> </p><p>

I had basically two lists. One of people I think we could bring in right away and one with people that could use seasoning and taught the ways of CGC's style. The latter I even added some names on our actual roster. Blockbuster and Prometheus both need more work and I rather keep them off television until then.</p><p> </p><p>

Beyond that I have found a few girls I want to bring in for either managerial roles or backstage interviews. They could easily be brought into the main roster with no issues. After a few weeks I mostly had come up with six wrestlers and three women for non wrestling roles that I would bring in directly. One was a tag team that looked like they could help revive the division. Another one had spent most of his time in Japan, but his ring work as well as the charisma he has seemed like he would be a good guy for the roster in general. Another was an ex MMA fighter looking more to do wrestling and I figured he would be a bit unique. Looking into him led me to find someone else who was a martial artist who was mostly working in Japan that said he would work for us too. Maybe I can make a tag team of the two.</p><p> </p><p>

The last guy seems like a steal. He has been working out of 4C and somehow no one else has picked him up. Even if Alex doesn't agree to much else I am going to push hard to sign this one. The girls are mostly unknowns. One I am thinking of sticking with one of the new tag teams I am looking to form, another as a backstage interviewer. The last I am not sure what to do with yet. Maybe one of the younger guys will get himself a manger. Someone like Skip Beau could use one.</p><p> </p><p>

On the second list I already mentioned Blockbuster and Prometheus. Another is a kid that was trained at the Piledriver School that has a pretty good personality even if his ring work needs more improvement. Two kids from California. One is a rough and tumble type that works for Nemesis at the moment. The other is in a small time company run by a rapper. He has a tag partner, but I don't really want to bring in both. Finally I found a guy that was pondering a return and agreed he needed work before he attempted a true comeback since his last run was a debacle from what I understand.</p><p> </p><p>

The latter list I thought was done until one day Lee Rivera caught me watching video and asked what I was doing. I was reluctant to give the full story so I just said I was thinking of what sort of styles we could bring over to CGC that would be unique. That is when he came by a day or two later and gave me some OLLIE shows. I never considered bringing luchadors to Canada. I mean Canadian luchadors. Like that would ever work. Then I watched them work and two younger men stood out and I added them to my list. They were already pretty good in the ring, but I think it is best to get them some popularity in Canada and get them better known before shoving them on television.</p><p> </p><p>

In the end I felt comfortable with the lists I had made and I offered youth and diversity of styles. Of all of them only two exceeded the age of thiry and both were early thirties so I figured Alex wouldn't mind that too much. Here is hoping he agrees.</p><p> </p><p>

<em><span style="font-size:8px;">This can go very well or very bad</span></em></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

The names gathered soon became files. Pictures of each person along with notes I made after managing to find a few matches. A few were a bit hard to find, but other footage was gathered if they had a career before getting in the ring. Something that would show their talent as a whole and show they have potential to be a member of Canadian Golden Combat.</p><p> </p><p>

A few days before the meeting I made everything into one nice folder and left it on the desk of Alex's office in the DeColt Power House. He visits daily and I figure it would give him time to look over things before we met. I would like to say I lost sleep over it, but I think at this point I have been in the business too long for something like this to make me feel that way. I am close to fourty, but the years running DAVE make me sometimes feel more like I am fifty.</p><p> </p><p>

It was early Saturday morning and almost exactly a month on the dot from the last interview when we met at a small coffee shop near the DeColt Power House. Alex had the folder with him as well as some other paperwork that looked unfamiliar. He was dressed casually and looking to be in a good enough mood. The fact he wasn't frowning was a good thing I would like to think.</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">I took a look over all of your stuff. I think if you can agree to a few rules I am willing to strike a deal with you</span>."</p><p> </p><p>

That does seem reasonable. It is a give and take sort of business and Alex usually does sometimes give me guidelines. Nothing that is ever too hard. What is the worst that could happen?</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">I like the variety of styles. They are a bit unique compared to what we have as a whole. A gold medalist, a MMA fighter turned wrestler, even an interesting tag team that mixes styles from east and west. There is only one thing I don't really like</span>."</p><p> </p><p>

When he scooted over the paperwork on the person in question I did have to frown. Of all the people that I was getting I figured he would be the easiest to transition.</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">I don't think we really need someone else with that sort of size and style. We have Lee for that and I am unsure if I want another cruiserweight</span>."</p><p> </p><p>

"Alex, it is just one guy and I got a good idea. Our tag division is lacking excitement that Youth Energy provided and I want to make a new version. Lee wasn't interested, but Shane said he would work with the new guy and it would give us another viable team."</p><p> </p><p>

It seems like it was a harder sell than I imagined. Alex furrowed his brow while considering things and he eventually reached to put his hand on the paperwork and he pulls it back towards himself to look at it again.</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">Just this one. No more cruiserweight types until I say so. Consider that similar to my usual rule of not hiring people with a bad background. Once a lawbreaker, always a lawbreaker is what dad always said</span>."</p><p> </p><p>

"If it means we can hire this guy then I can agree to that. What were the other things you were wanting from me in exchange?"</p><p> </p><p>

Alex actually smiled a bit and he took a sip from his coffee mug. This could either be a good thing or a very bad thing.</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">Nothing too much. If we are putting out cash I want results, Phil. I don't doubt your skill, but if I don't feel like we are getting more popular because of all that we are doing I will let you know quickly</span>."</p><p> </p><p>

"Alex, not that I mind but that one is kind of a given. Is there anything really that is going to pose a problem?"</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">I don't think I am asking a lot from you. I do have two guys I want to see some stronger booking with. Jack still has a few good years in him so I want to see him stay near the top. I suppose if I am not chasing the title I want him to be doing so or even him with the title. Nate Johnson I also feel should get a bit of a push. He has been solid for us all these years and I feel this is a good way to repay him</span>."</p><p> </p><p>

I think that is one thing I like about Alex. He does repay loyalty. Probably why a good chunk of guys stay here for the long term. He is far from perfect. The DeColts will always be the top dogs as long as one is around to wrestle, but guys like Dan, Nate and Eddie get to stay up there with them even when there are probably younger and better options.</p><p> </p><p>

"This is all stuff I can work with. So I will start contacting everyone about contracts and I want to try and get them all signed so I can have them start to show up during the new year."</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">I am surprised you haven't asked me about the child company. I think I found a taker</span>."</p><p> </p><p>

Now that I didn't expect to hear from him. I was just happy he was letting me signed those from the first list that I was even going to let the child company bit slide for now. I wonder who he got into contact with. Some old friends? Ed Wolfe maybe? He left on good terms and he is out of work at the moment. Heck, what about his old partner, Jon Jetson. I know the guy is dabbling in standup comedy for some reason, but a chance to run a company has to be more interesting than that.</p><p> </p><p>

"Who is it?"</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">Dean Daniels</span>."</p><p> </p><p>

There is a few moments of awkward silence. I was more trying to figure out if he was serious or not. Dean isn't a bad guy per se, but he doesn't strike me as much of a guy that would be running a company to help train young entertainers.</p><p> </p><p>

"Deano Machino? I'm glad there was actually a taker, but the only Dean I would have perhaps even thought of to ask was McWade."</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">We are still in discussions. He wants to book the company as well, but I told him if we are going to help get things started he is going to have to try and push the guys we are going to send to him to use. Don't worry, Phil. I talked with Ed and I told him to contact Dean about being a road agent and trainer there</span>."</p><p> </p><p>

I am still skeptic, but the inclusion of Wolfe is a relief. For some reason Dean Daniels owning and booking something that is supposed to be a miniature CGC is sort of confusing and scary at the same time.</p><p> </p><p>

"Well...okay. What of the names I put on that list. Any you really like? Any you want to say no to?"</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">Hmm, I think we can work with all of those suggestions. Beyond that we will be careful on who we sign. Nine names on the roster and then about six more for developmental deals if we do go through with setting up a child promotion? That is enough spending, Phil. Unless something falls into our lap lets try to keep costs down now</span>."</p><p> </p><p>

It is really happening. A shift in the winds that is setting CGC in a slightly different direction. Part of me is about to think this is some sort of joke where Jack and Ricky would soon pop out and go 'Fooooooled you!'. I waited for a few moments and that never came. Instead I just had Alex looking at me oddly while I just kinda said nothing.</p><p> </p><p>

"O..oh, right. Thanks, Alex. I'll start contacting people and start to work on ideas for them. I need to talk to Adrian as well. I got an idea that will boot me from my on screen position and put me in colour to replace him by the start of next year."</p><p> </p><p>

Alex just nodded and then gave me a grin as he slid a tab over towards me. Not an expensive one, but it seems this was part of the deal. A small fee lke this I think I can cover. I just smirked somewhat in reply and took it.</p><p> </p><p>

"Yeah yeah. I probably owe you a few times. See you before the show tomorrow."</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">More so if the deal with Dean goes through. Starting a company, even a small one, isn't exactly cheap</span>."</p><p> </p><p>

It was a joking tone and I think he understood the consequences of doing what I suggested. Even the hirings weren't going to be cheap. Top that off with expiring contracts with guys that might want more money? This could really make or break us.</p><p> </p><p>

<em><span style="font-size:8px;">The current state of CGC</span></em></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Chamber of Horrors was the last show of 2012 and that means things will move on towards one of the bigger events of the year in Elimination.</p><p> </p><p>

The past few months had shown a blatant abuse of power by General Manager Phil Vibert who was working with Adrian Garcia to try and help Elite wrest the title away from Alex DeColt. The result was a best of three series of matches featuring one of the DeColt brothers against one of the members of Elite.</p><p> </p><p>

Jack DeColt won the first match when he managed to down Nate Johnson with his devastating knockout punch. The series was evened up when Shooter Sean Deeley managed to make Ricky DeColt tap out in a brutal submissions match. The main event and deciding match pitted Eddie Chandler against Alex and the result was Alex managing to secure the win despite interference from Dan DaLay.</p><p> </p><p>

The end result was Phil losing his job as general manager and it seemed he would be gone for good only for Adrian Garcia to announce he was quitting his position at the desk to allow his friend to take over. Davis Ditterich now finds himself doing commentary with Phil while Adrian prepares Elite for their big match at Elimination which always pits Elite and the DeColt brothers in an epic three on three matchup.</p><p> </p><p>

The Soldiers of Fortune had also successfully defended their titles at Chamber of Horrors and the following week it was announced that they would face The House of Old School at Elimination in a title match. When the two teams stared one another down the music of Shane Nelson interrupted them and he said it would be a three way dance where he promised to have a partner that will help him defeat both teams and take the gold.</p><p> </p><p>

Christian Price also defended his CGC Canadian title by defeating Ozzie Golden in a tough bout only to be attacked by Bobby Thomas while he was celebrating. It seems All Business is looking to have gold again himself and the young Price is standing in his way. The two will square off for the title at Elimination.</p><p> </p><p>

Alex might not be defending his title at Elimination, but a few nights later he will be forced to put the title up for grabs on Title Bout Wrestling against a man that earned the right at Chamber of Horrors. Trent Shaffer won against Thrill Seeker. Trent has victories over both Jack and Ricky the past few months, but can he beat Alex and hold CGC's most prestigious title? What shape will Alex be in after the match at Elimination? Will Phil have his last laugh?</p><p> </p><p>

Questions will be answered as December finishes up and the new year approaches.</p><p> </p><p>

<p>Well I'll certainly give you credit: You have really taken a good stab at this and tried to justify the absolutely bizarre hire of Phil Vibert as head booker by saying he "wanted something different". Granted, this still doesn't explain why a traditionalist like Alex would pick Phil over Steve and just let Steve walk and NOT START A WAR BECAUSE THEY STOLE HIS BROTHER. (I know Mr Ryland has more homeruns than strikeouts in building the CVerse story, but seriously, what the hell was he thinking? Did he look up some banned user's Fanfiction.net story on this game and said ---- it, lets use this?)</p><p> </p><p>

But yeah, you are one to watch after capturing the essence of GSW perfectly with your last diary. My attention, it is had.</p><p>


EDIT #35: Wait, you did the Big Daddy Horne story? For real? *autopushes Voeltz to Main Event diary producer*</em></p>

Elimination is a little over two weeks away at this point and the card is slowly coming together.</p><p> </p><p> Last year Elite managed to snag a win over the DeColt brothers with the combination of Nate Johnson, Eddie Chandler and Dan DaLay. This year they have still not revealed who they will field and constant change ups when fighting the brothers have Alex, Ricky and Jack's collective heads spinning.

Shane has been mum on who is partner will be at Elimination aside from saying it is someone he has never teamed with before. Fate on the other hand is one half of the current tag team champions and a tough customer all around. Will he be able to show he is the dominant man or will Shane pull out a win and show that he could be a bigger threat than both The Soldiers of Fortune and The House of Old School are giving him credit for?</p><p> </p><p> Finally Trent Shaffer will be in action as he waits patiently for his title shot against Alex DeColt. Shaffer has done well to get under Alex's skin as of late and he does hold victories over both Ricky and Jack over the past few months.

I don't see the two most popular DeColts losing (not just on this show. I mean ever). Trent's pretty much a lock, and I think until Shane has his new partner by his side, he's in for trouble against the Soldier of Fortune.


Alex and Jack DeColt vs Two Members of Elite

Trent Shaffer vs 'The Barbadian Barbarian' Donte Dunn

Shane Nelson vs Fate


Digging the tantalising vague hints on new signings. Fun reading booking thoughts, even in an "in character" sense.

I like most of the signings and I am pleased I managed to talk myself out of most of the go to guys like Greg, Hernandez, Matthew, Parker, etc. Was also trying to diversify the people from the last CGC attempt I made and reworking some characters so it doesn't feel like I am doing the same diary only without Remo this time around. I will admit most of the results on Title Bout will probably be pretty easy to guess, but I think come PPV when I get more time to work with I will be able to get a few good surprises in.

I was fussing with an USPW save and CGC, but really wanted to do the latter again. Was idly working on posts the past few days then I have to admit see Self bringing his CGC diary back kinda gave me the extra push to go ahead and do something. I have learned a lesson and will be keeping backups in case of more computer hijinx.

<p>Enjoy your stuff Voeltzwagon even though i haven't commented much. I haven't played too long as CGC before so i may be a little off with picks...</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Alex and Jack DeColt</strong> vs Two Members of Elite</p><p>

<em>DeColts could end up losing this to kickstart the latest round of DeColts vs The World, but u'm going with the feel good DeColt Factor!</em></p><p>

<strong>Trent Shaffer</strong> vs 'The Barbadian Barbarian' Donte Dunn</p><p>

<em>I can't remember using Donte much, and Trent is one of my fave's here.</em></p><p>

<strong>Shane Nelson</strong> vs Fate</p><p>

<em>Pretty sure Shane will be more important for you.</em></p>

<em><span style="font-size:8px;">We can get along off screen</span></em></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

The new year finally came around and things were in motion. Some of the new talent were signed and other members were finishing up obligations to either report to the main roster or the developmental territory. Yes, that does mean in some weird bizzaro way an entertainment company is being run by Dean Daniels. I won't try to figure it out. I suggest you don't either.</p><p> </p><p>

While preparing for the taping of the first episode of Title Bout Wrestling of the year a few of the new guys were in a dark match working as a tag team when I came to the realization that good ideas can often go down a bad path. When I considered teaming a Judo gold medalist with an MMA fighter it seemed like a great idea. Then I got to see them work together and things just fell apart.</p><p> </p><p>

Granted it could be in part one man barely speaks any sort of English, but this was just a general awkwardness that occurs and just screams 'Don't team these guys!' to those in charge.</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#4169E1;">Man, could you imagine this if we put it on TV</span>?"</p><p> </p><p>

".....don't remind me. This is why new tag teams get a few matches in the dark before debuting."</p><p> </p><p>

Davis Ditterich isn't a bad guy at all. In fact when I hired him we kind of struck a friendship and started hanging out outside of CGC events. He has a good knack for announcing and I think he can go far if given more time. I have to say me and him haven't made too bad of a duo so far either.</p><p> </p><p>

"I still want to keep them a team, but if they are television I think I have to keep them in trio or quad matches. If they do straight up tag it has to be at a time like this. I just hope the videos don't get out showing how bad they look."</p><p> </p><p>

As if it was that easy. Even in the days of DAVE that wasn't such a big worry, but now I can't seem to go five steps without some jackhole with a phone raised recording whatever he can get. Such things are prohibited but when has that ever stopped someone?</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#4169E1;">Thing it is a language issue</span>?"</p><p> </p><p>

"Davis...does Mammoth like pie?"</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#4169E1;">Umm, does he? I never met the guy</span>."</p><p> </p><p>

I am reminded Davis doesn't know some of the more old school people from the area. Often such comparisons I try to make are lost on him.</p><p> </p><p>

"Just....just yes. I will figure something out. I already had ideas penciled in for Elimination so I need to make things work. Just don't remind me how bad things are."</p><p> </p><p>

He just smiled and nod. I suppose he knows I could get frustrated easily at times and this isn't a good time to give me too much hell. An idea for a good tag team might be in trouble and this is not a great time to start off the new year. I just need to get in the right mindset and hope the first episode of Title Bout Wrestling turns out well.</p><p> </p><p>

DD: Happy New Year everyone and welcome to Title Bout Wrestling's first episode of two thousand and thirteen! We are two weeks away from Elimination and once again it looks like it will be quite the event!</p><p> </p><p>

PV: Shut up, ya muppet. It could have been great, but without me it will just be another DeColt love fest. That is until Elite put them in their place in the main event.</p><p> </p><p>

DD: *sigh* I am starting to miss Adrian oddly enough. Speaking of Elite facing off against the DeColt brothers, we do have two members that Adrian will be selecting facing off against Alex and Jack.</p><p> </p><p>

PV: He can make any combination out of the four and each team could be deadly.</p><p> </p><p>

DD: We still hasn't seen Nate Johnson since Jack KO'd him last month. Could he finally make his return tonight?</p><p> </p><p>

PV: He will make his presence known when he wants to. Adrian is a smart man and not putting him in danger if he isn't ready.</p><p> </p><p>

DD: Looks like things are about to get started with a bang. Here come Jack and Alex!</p><p> </p><p>

PV: *sarcasm* Yay.</p><p> </p><p>

Alex and Jack come out to a loud pop while Marie walks with both men towards the ring. Jack helps his wife into the ring while Alex grabs himself a microphone and addresses the fans once they quiet down.</p><p> </p><p>

AD: Hello, Quebec! As you all know tonight Jack and I are going to have a match against Elite. Once again Adrian Garcia thinks he is playing mind games with us by not telling us who we will face. Adrian, that won't work. We know Elite all too well just like you know us. You can throw any combination and it won't matter. We DeColts know it will be a challenge and we like it that way. Bring who we want. The DeColts will come out on top!</p><p> </p><p>

JD: You know all it takes is a split second, Adrian. It can be Dan DaLay. It can be Eddie Chandler. It can be anyone you throw at us. The moment one makes a mistake that is when the knockout will happen. Just ask Nate about th-</p><p> </p><p>

Adrian Garcia emerges flanked by Eddie Chandler and Shooter Sean Deeley. He has a look of annoyance as he interrupts the DeColt brothers.</p><p> </p><p>

AG: I am tired of hearing it. You act like you have this won already and you should know better. Elimination is coming up and you know what happened last year? Eddie, I think you know.</p><p> </p><p>

EC: Last time I checked we beat you so go ahead and be cocky. We know who the better team is and we will prove it again this year. Tonight it will be me and Sean here giving you an early taste of defeat. So pretend to be so great and unbeatable. We got your number, Decolts. Always have and always will.</p><p> </p><p>

Alex and Jack look ready to fight right now and Alex points towards the trio outside the ring.</p><p> </p><p>

AD: You and Sean, huh? The only people tasting defeat tonight will be you two. Prepare for a rumble, guys. We'll give you a good, old fashioned DeColt beating.</p><p> </p><p>

The two groups stare at one another, but Elite seem to be showing no worries given the way they are all smirking. They turn about to leave as the DeColt brothers play to the crowd a bit.</p><p> </p><p>

DD: So we find out the team taking on Alex and Jack finally.</p><p> </p><p>

PV: The technical genius that is Shooter Sean Deeley and the devious Eddie Chandler. They wanted a challenge and they got it. I think Elite got this one.</p><p> </p><p>

DD: I wouldn't be so sure about that.</p><p> </p><p>

PV: That's because you are an idiot, Ditterich. Try to be impartial and not side with the DeColts all the time.</p><p> </p><p>

After the match things shift to backstage where a camera is focused on Trent Shaffer. He is resting in a comfy chair with feet propped up in the lap of a rather pretty woman who is giving him a nice little foot rub. He just gives a sly grin as he looks to camera and begins to speak.</p><p> </p><p>

TS: "I hope you are having fun with Elite, Alex. In fact I am cheering you on tonight and even at Elimination. You see I want you in top condition and ready for our match coming up. I want no excuses about how you were beat up and how Elite ran you through the wringer when I take the CGC title from you. I want you to realize even at your best that night there will be someone better than you. After all..."</p><p> </p><p>

He trails off then just winks at the camera and that sly grin of his never leaves his face.</p><p> </p><p>

TS: "I'm Trent Shaffer and I'm just too awesome for you. Oh, and Donte? I haven't forgotten about you. I will do that after I beat you."</p><p> </p><p>

The large form of Dan DaLay stands over the now prone Jack and he just smirks some and lightly kicks him while Marie shouts for Alex and Ricky to come help.</p><p> </p><p>

DaLay: "Just wanting to wish you good luck. You aren't the only knockout artist, Jack. Break a leg tonight."</p><p> </p><p>

Elite looks ready to put Jack and Alex away for good when Ricky comes storming out with a chair. He tries to take on all three men and he does well enough to allow Jack time to recover and help out. Officials and security are pouring into the ring to try and break up the massive brawl just as Alex is starting to get up and blindly tackles Eddie Chandler to the ground and they tumble to the outside.

<em><span style="font-size:8px;">The new faces of Canadian Golden Combat</span></em></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

For those fans that have have been coming to the most recent house shoes as of late there might be a few unfamiliar faces among the stars you are used to seeing on television. These are not random workers coming in for a one time deal, but it appears new talent that has been signed that will be debuting shortly. Most evidence points that Elimination may feature one to all four new faces that have been appearing at the house shows. Rumors even speculate one of these four new ring workers could be Shane Nelson's mystery partner. For those curious to the names we have managed to compile some basic information on the new talents as well as the associates that have been seen with a few.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://imageshack.us/a/img19/8102/bhsc.jpg</span><span>http://imageshack.us/a/img17/515/6zdh.jpg</span><span>http://imageshack.us/a/img209/9885/49ha.jpg</span><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Black Dragons</strong></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Frankie and Mikey Lee are brothers who has found success almost anywhere they have ended up. Be it on the West Coast in the United States, or in the Far East wrestling in Japan the duo have wowed fans and held both singles and tag titles. Now they look to travel to Canada and make a name for themselves here in Canadian Golden Combat. Along with their childhood friend, Chloe Dean, the duo look to make an impact among the tag ranks right off the bat.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Roy Edison</strong></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Fans from the MMA world may recognize the name Roy Edison as a Judo specialist that eventually went on to have a big MMA career for several years. He is a well traveled fighter known for his painful submission holds. Now retired from MMA, he has been spending the past few years primarily wrestling in Japan with occasional dates in Canada, the United States and various companies in Europe. While having a somewhat successful career in MMA, it is yet to be seen how well he has transitioned into the wild world of wrestling.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Oleg Dorosklov</strong></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

A surprising face to be seen for sure. Oleg Dorosklov is a gold medal winner in the 2008 Olympics. The Judo champion is a large name in Europe and many expected him to go into MMA where many pegged him to be a future champion in whatever company he chose. Also known to dabble in wrestling, the Ukrainian fighter has had matches in both Europe and Japan. A man of few words he seems to let his powerful strikes and brutal submissions do the talking for him in the ring. Outside the ring it appears the young Ms. Cameron talks for him due to language barrier issues. She seems to be an executive consultant of the sorts that handles all business aspects for the decorated warrior.</p><p> </p><p>

So now all you followers that check the CGC website are in the know so when these faces appear finally on screen you can impress your friends with your knowledge of these new faces that look to make a name for themselves in Canadian Golden Combat. Only time will tell on who will succeed and who will falter.</p><p> </p><p>

<p>Good first show. It may be difficult for me to read, skirting so close yet so far from my own project, but I'll try to keep up. </p><p> </p><p>

Weirdly, I think reading this just taught me the value of heel commentators. I've always HATED heel commentators with the fire of a thousands suns. I considered them to be counter-productive. Wasting time feeding the audience misinformation and highlighting flaws in heroes that shouldn't be highlighted. Or they're just trying to get themselves over. But there was one line. <em>"Donte Dunne is a nobody"</em>. That INFURIATED me. If Donte's a nobody, then I just wasted my time watching that match. Donte isn't a nobdy! He's a skilled athlete, and... This is where I realised. My brain was automatically arguing with the annoying bad man. I was defending Donte. Supporting Donte. Cheering Donte. Phil Vibert actually got Donte Dunne over with me. </p><p> </p><p>

So... yeah. Heel commentators. I guess they work.</p>

Either way thanks for reading and I appreciate the feedback. Phil is also a miserable little man at this point on camera. After all he went from having the power of a GM to now being stuck behind the commentary table. I do tend to try and keep a more neutral ground with commentary when I do use it, but this time around it felt like Phil needed to come across as a jerkface.</p>

<em><span style="font-size:8px;">I hate phones sometimes.</span></em></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

I squinted an eye to look at the clock which read that it was around three in the morning. The reason why I am awake enough to know that is because of my cell ringing off the hook. Fumbling about with it I finally realize who is calling and I am a bit unsure I really want to answer it. Then again maybe it is an emergency and he needs help.</p><p> </p><p>

"Mmnnn, Alex?"</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">Why is Donte only on a pay per appearance contract</span>?"</p><p> </p><p>

"Guh?"</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">Why is Donte only on a pay per appearance contract, Phil</span>?"</p><p> </p><p>

"Isn't this something that could wait until morning?"</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">Well I couldn't sleep and I am just browsing the internet</span>..."</p><p> </p><p>

This is not something I want to hear. Given the slight slur it sounds like Alex has had a fun night out and just got home. Not to mention the last thing I really want to hear right now is how my boss is browsing the net at three in the morning. Nothing good can come of this.</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">So a website had a poll. You know our boy Donte got voted as the best young prospect</span>?"</p><p> </p><p>

"And this couldn't wait until morning because?"</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">Sign him up full time. I don't want anyone else seeing this poll and grabbing him before we can seal him up. The Stones could be looking at this right now</span>!"</p><p> </p><p>

"I think the Stones are probably asleep."</p><p> </p><p>

"<span style="color:#FF0000;">Just do it, Phil</span>!"</p><p> </p><p>

A sigh escapes me when he finally hangs up and I decide to turn the ringer off in case he decides to call again. Best young prospect.....whatever. Donte is a good kid, but I am not so sure he beats out some of the guys that other companies have. I suppose I will check with Alex in once he is sobered up and make sure he actually does want to sign the kid to a full time contract and for how long. Now to get some sleep without interruptions.</p><p> </p><p>

Dan DaLay laid out both men over the course of the night with his Decapitator lariat and Elite just seemed to have the DeColt brothers' number all night. We went off the air as Ricky joined the fray to even things up and all six men were trying to be separated by security.</p><p> </p><p> Jack and Alex have sustained some injuries and are trying to rest up so they can be ready for Elimination XI, but Ricky doesn't seem like he will be sitting around idle. The youngest DeColt brother looks to issue a challenge to any member of Elite to meet him in the ring this Sunday. Will Adrian Garcia accept and if so who will take on Ricky DeColt? Is this even a wise move given Jack and Alex might not be able to back him up if he gets in trouble?</p><p> </p><p> Also at Elimination XI we will be seeing Bobby Thomas taking on Christian Price for the CGC Canadian title, but this week on title bout the two men will be taking on one another in a tag match where both men choose a partner of their choice. Both have been mum on who it might be, but either way it should be a good match as both men look to gain momentum going into Elimination XI.</p><p> </p><p> Finally Destiny will be in action on Sunday taking on one of the men involved in the triple threat tag team match. Fate fell to Shane Nelson last week, but can the other half the CGC tag team champions pull out a win against the always tough Brett Fraser? It is going to be a pretty one at all when these two big men meet so be prepared for quite the brawl.</p><p> </p><p> Tune in for an amazing hour of action!

<p>This is great. I waited for the first show before posting predictions as I wanted to see where you would go and I love it. CGC has always been a favorite of mine (alongside USPW) as it's manageable to the point where, yes you have basic building blocks (DeColts/Elite) but as you grow, that foundation isn't set for the next 2-5 years (say SWF) because the foundation must grow. I just love what you did in that first show, and the backstage stuff and I look forward to seeing where you do go...</p><p> </p><p>

Ricky DeColt vs <strong>Member of Elite</strong> - Ricky is the weaker of the DeColts, I feel like Nate Johnson is coming back here so why not give him the win, evening up the pre-Elimination hype.</p><p> </p><p>

Bobby Thomas and ??? vs <strong>Christian Price and ???</strong> - Champion I guess. Unless Thomas is supposed to win to hype up a challenge?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Destiny </strong>vs Brett Fraser - Fraser is a jobber and not going to be part of High Energy so of course Destiny won't be losing here.</p>

They are in such a better position for the long term unlike NOTBPW. I enjoyed my previous attempt with them, but something just stopped clicking for me and I lost interest overall. I think maybe it was because I felt like I was cheating by having someone like Remo as part of a cult company.</p><p> </p><p> Glad you are enjoying. Already got things planned through Elimination XI and working on buildups for the big Wrestlefestival so I have plenty of material to go with at the moment. Just got to stay on the ball and keep up at a decent pace to where I don't burn myself out or just go too long on an update and grow lethargic.</p>

<p>Great start, I loved your other dynasties and though I never predicted on your former CGC diary, I actually did read and enjoy it. Now, my knowledge on CGC is limited at best but lets see if I can get one or two right here.</p><p> </p><p>

Ricky DeColt vs <strong>Member of Elite</strong></p><p>

<em>Ricky is the weakest DeCold and with Elite losing last time I figure they get a win back here.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bobby Thomas and ???</strong> vs Christian Price and ???</p><p>

<em>I expect Price to retain in title match mainly because it´s likely his first defense on this diary so I have Thomas winning this one. Besides with mystery partners for both this might be a good time to put Nate Johnson and Bobby Thomas back together if you plan to go that way.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Destiny</strong> vs Brett Fraser </p><p>

<em>No idea here to be honest so I just go with champ.</em></p>

<em>I like Ricky, but I think he'll be cheated here</em></p><p>

<strong>Bobby Thomas and ???</strong> vs Christian Price and ???</p><p>

<em>Was thinking it might be Garg as his partner, maybe not.</em></p><p>

<strong>Destiny</strong> vs Brett Fraser</p><p>

<em>Fate lost last week, not sure really so it's a guess</em></p>
