Hive Posted July 2, 2016 Share Posted July 2, 2016 http://i.imgur.com/9z6HHhY.png This is an alternative reality edition of my 1994: Clash of The Titans mod. In the spring of 1994, rumours were afloat that Hulk Hogan was in negotiations with WCW. These negotiations, for one reason or the other, fell through right as everyone believed Hogan was about to sign on the dotted line. As a result, WCW had to look elsewhere for their big marquee signing and Hogan had to think outside the box to relaunch his career in wrestling... Start date: September 1994 Key changes to the timeline: ECW Failing to strike a deal with WCW (rumoured to be because of Hogan's demands), Hogan instead partnered up with Australian businessman Rupert Murdoch, longtime owner of the News Corporation media group to buy NWA flagship Eastern Championship Wrestling from Tod Gordon, making Hogan both CEO as well as wrestling figurehead. Instigated by ECW booker Paul Heyman, the company quickly changed it's name to Extreme Championship Wrestling as their TV show, Hardcore Wrestling, found its way to national TV through Murdoch's News Corporation. With Hogan winning a tournament for the vacant NWA World Heavyweight Championship and signing some big stars (mostly Hogan's own friends, so far) for Murdoch's money, things are looking interesting for ECW. The big feud right now is an odd couple consisting of one old friend and one old enemy of Hogan challenging him for the most prestigeous belt in the world of wrestling. But will Hogan clash with Heyman, who reportedly is unhappy about not being allowed to take ECW quite as extreme as he would like...? Bonus info: Hogan and Murdoch did actually talk about going into the wrestling business together at one point... WCW Failing to sign Hogan, Bischoff had to turn elsewhere for the big star he had promised Ted Turner to help catapult the company into fiercer competition with WWF. His choice: Warrior. Warrior debuted to much fanfare in the beginning of July, winning the WCW World Heavyweight Championship against Ric Flair at Bash at The Beach in his first WCW match. Now in September, the hottest feud in WCW is Warrior and former tag team partner Sting feuding with Ric Flair and Rick Rude, whose career-threatening injury luckily turned out to be much less severe than initially feared. Fearing that Warrior's name alone would not be quite enough to elevate WCW to the desired heights, Bischoff decided to supplement Warrior's talents by bringing home some legionaires from Japan as well... WWF While feuding with his brother Owen, Bret "The Hitman" Hart injured his back pretty badly at a house show match against former tag team partner Jim Neidhart. It was soon apparant that Bret would need surgery and a long break, so a surprise decision was made to put the WWF World Heavyweight Championship on Owen at SummerSlam, with Owen kayfabe breaking Bret's neck during the match with a nasty looking Piledriver as a way to write Bret off TV and provide Owen legitimacy as champion. Losing their world champion to injury was not the end of WWF's bad luck however, as WWF Intercontinental Champion Diesel would also tear his quad in a match, putting him on the sidelines as well. Loosing two of his biggest stars to long-term injuries, Vince McMahon decides to sign some new (or old, depending on ones viewpoint) faces and pull "Macho Man" Randy Savage from commentary duties and bring some much-needed star power to the ring. Will Savage get his wish fulfilled for a dream match at WrestleMania against upcoming star Shawn Michaels...?
