sportsfanmas Posted November 20, 2016 Share Posted November 20, 2016 Hello, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mike Schaplowsky. I am the founder and head booker of the newest promotion to make its debut in the wrestling world, Kansas Championship Wrestling. Let me tell you about this promotion, because it is unlike anything you've ever seen in the wrestling world. First, let me tell you the idea behind this brand new concept. The other day I was watching yet another ho-hum episode of Impact Wrestling, thinking about the good ol' days of wrestling, more specifically the attitude era. Then after that was over, I started watching an episode of UFC Fight Night (or something along those lines) and I started thinking.. what if, just what if, there was a promotion in professional wrestling that was set up just like the UFC. I'm talking about no bs angles, no storylines, no angles, just straight up wrestling. Now obviously the matches will still be scripted, although I have decided that to shake things up, at least for the majority of the time, the winners of each match will be completely random. I will not be choosing the winners, rather, a roll of the dice will. We will have wins, losses, and draws. Wins by pin, submission, countout, and DQ, as well as double DQ, double countout, draws, etc. All this ties into the most unique concept, the ranking system. First off, you might want to know how I was able to pull something like this off? Well, there's a pretty famous, local guy that used to be in the wrestling business that now is an anchor for ESPN. His name? Jonathan Coachman. Used to work sports for KAKE news, and I had the pleasure of meeting him on several occasions. So, I reached out to him and pitched my idea. Lo and behold, he loved it. He took the idea to his bosses at ESPN, and the ESPN studios funded me $25,000,000 to start my project! The only stipulation, they are in complete control of the company. Which means, any tv shows that KCW has, will be on ESPN or ESPN 2. No other tv stations. If the ESPN Networks ever close (which we pretty much know will never happen anytime soon), then KCW closes with it. Why, you ask, would I give ESPN charge of the company I founded? Very simple. By doing this, I don't have to work for tv deals. I've got one. ESPN will be very, very patient with me and the shows I put on their network. And, the biggest reason? The financial backing. I mean.. $25 million? That is incredible! So that's the story of KCW and how it came about. Now, the next post will go over the rules of KCW.
