I asked the question to my local bartender a couple days after thanksgiving. Everyone in the wrestling world now knows me has Raven Robinson thanks to my tenure has the face of the USPW women's division, though I think Alicia Strong and the fans of the "Strong-hold" would disagree with that statement. I never thought I would have reached the highs of mainstream women's wrestling glory, but through it all I was able to make great relationships, have great matches, and achieve a career I believe some women would be a bit envious of. "The 2/3 falls match against Alicia Strong at _____ will always go down has my favorite women's match of all time". Gary said with a delighted grin on his face. But the sun always sets.... Time always moves on And death.....death is always a given We're sorry but we feel that is finally time for us to move on from you Raven....We are looking to move the division into a new direction especially with the new management that has come in. No hard feelings though Raven?" "No, not at all....." The words still stuck in my head. I always figured I would retire has a USPW superstar, have one last run with the title, and be inducted into their hall of fame has the first women wrestler. But as my uncle would say, "There is a difference between reality and expectations!" Is 40 really the new 30? I am on the wrong side of 40 but I still feel like I could go and have a good match with anyone. I still fee like I can have a good match against any kind of style. Brawling, Technical, High spots, you name it Raven Robinson can still do it. <a href="http://imgur.com/zKe6Aqw"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/zKe6Aqw.jpg" title="source: imgur.com" /></a> "I think Raven Nightfall can still do it". Cat said, with a determined look on her face has she raised her head from a ledger she was reading. I slowly walked around the offices in a dreamlike trance, stopping to look at the posters on the wall of past events, pictures of great matches, special moments that this promotion had given the wrestling world, and stopped right in front of the pyramid of "Past Alumni". I made my way up from the bottom of the pyramid and stopped at the top where it had a picture of myself. AAA- Angel Athletic Association. The first American women based wrestling promotion in the USA. And in June of this year, it will be 20 years since the promotion doors opened. Catherine paced around her office spinning her head towards me every time she would mention a goal of hers that she wants to take this promotion that is so near and dear to her heart. "AAA has the ability to be so much more. We can eventually take this promotion beyond a regional promotion and eventually take it national. I have a 10 year plan Raven and really put a women's wrestling promotion on the map. I'm thinking California, New York, Dallas, Miami. I want to hold events out there. I want to make the AAA Femme Fatale championship a true world championship and hold events in Japan and England. AAA can be the end all be all of great WRESTLING period." "A 10 year plan huh?" I asked her, raising my eyebrows. There was no way my body was going to hold up for another 10 years so my curiosity was now def. tingling as to why she called me up to her office. Does she see my has the centerpiece of this plan? Am I just here so I can be the gatekeeper for the younger talent that she thinks are going to be the faces of the company? Maybe she just wants me here on a one-off autograph signing session to boost merchandise sales..... My head was racing in many different directions..... "Cat, the position I am in I am ready to do whatever I can do to help. And between me and you my financial situation is not in the best, all those years at the top had me spending and investing in things that had no real return. I just need a couple of years to get me back to where I need to be...." I said, very embarrassed to even look her in the eye. <a href="http://imgur.com/n6JYzY0"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/n6JYzY0.jpg" title="source: imgur.com" /></a> Cat took a deep breath and then lowered her head a bit to meet me at eye level. "I want to make you head booker. Cherry thought she could do the job but she is more and more developing outside interests has she gets ready for her eventual retirement and doesn't want that to interfere with her duties her at AAA. Plus, it would give her more time to guide the younger girls on the roster so they can be the next "BOMB"." Cat ended the statement mimicking Cherry Bomb like no one else could. "I would do it Raven," Cat proclaimed with her thumbs pointed at her chest. "But there is no way I can oversee this company and book the promotion at the same time. I know some owners like their hands everywhere but not me, its too much. I know you have a good mind for the business Raven and I think you'll do great......" "Do you want the job?" "Do you want the job?" "Do you want the job" played in my head has Cat's face faded from view..... Staring into the mirror of my hotel room I began to splash water in face....again and again..... The meeting went better than I could have ever expected. Not only was I offered a 3 year contract to wrestle, made head booker, and will be making the most money on the roster.....though that was something I will not be letting the other girls in the locker room know.....knowing how my tenure was going in USPW I began to really follow the product and knew the story lines and booking direction that the company was going in has they headed towards the biggest show in the history. I was hoping to keep the boat in the right direction There was a knock on the door. A knock I wasn't expecting as I didn't think they would be here until tomorrow morning but maybe they had heard the news. I wouldn't put it past them because I'm sure their "long reach" can grab a hold of information anywhere now in this world. <a href="http://imgur.com/HF5EeQE"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/HF5EeQE.jpg" title="source: imgur.com" /></a> "Agent Smith, so nice to see you." I said opening the door to the room, condescension dripping from tone. "Raven." Agent Smith barked. "Check in time was two hours ago. How did it go?" "Went better than expected. I was offered a contract, head booker, and put in charge of hiring and firings that are within reason." I retorted. "So you didn't even have to grease up Catherine to get her to hire Agent Angela Bruin (Eve Runcord). That is great. Because you know the deal you have with the agency. If you fail to do what you have to do on your terms there will be a jail cell waiting in your future. The Taxman always gets his man....or his woman....." OOC: Ive started and stopped two dynasties in the past due to computer issues but now that I've finally taken care of that with a new purchase and ontop of things at work I am going to try my hand at this again. I am a massive fan of women's wrestling and the C-Verse version of it and hope to do it justice like some of my fav dynasties that are on this forum are doing right now.
