jesseewiak Posted February 25, 2017 Share Posted February 25, 2017 SWF 2K5 – RetroReviews.net So, boys and girls, with TCW falling into irrelevance thanks to Cornell leaving, North of the Border continuing to be soulless, the SWF still thinking it's 1996, and more importantly, USPW still thinking it's 1986, I thought it was time to jump back in the time machine to the good ole' days of 2005! Well, late 2005 it is. The SWF Archives only start there for some weird reason. If I remember correctly for reading the Wrestling Eyewitness, it's something to do with rights to older TV shows, plus the cost of editing out the real life songs the SWF used up until this time. Anyway, as usual, I'll be giving a summary of the TV shows, a full recap and rant of the PPV's, and dropping bits and nuggets of knowledge from old dirtsheets and my quickly decomposing memory of those bright times when we thought the USPW would ever change, Tommy Cornell would leave a revolution, and we actually liked Jack Bruce on top. As a catch up though, let me remind you what was going on, both inside and outside of the ring. After a few years as booker, Sam Keith had decided to step down, but was able to appoint Enforcer Roberts as the man who took over him, largely because Roberts had been such a loyal solider to the SWF cause for over a decade. On the other hand, from late November issues of the Eyewitness, it seemed that Eisen didn't want the SWF to fall into debt, not that it was likely, that he didn't want anybody signed from any company that was 'Cult-sized' or above, so no TCW raids, and probably as connected to that, he didn't want anybody over 42 signed, and finally, probably because of the political backlash of the time, no MMA Crossovers. Oh, also, he wanted Squeeky McClean pushed to the upper midcard. For reasons. Meanwhile, in the ring, the two big angles that Keith had dropped at Roberts doorstep was the formation of two of the stables that would lead the SWF through at least 2006. The Firm and CREAM. Now, as of the beginning of my rants, neither stable was official, as CREAM was just the four guys who had been thrown together as a team to face off Frehley, DeBones, and the Wildboyz. OTOH, Keith, Joe Sexy himself, and Angry Gilmore had been helping each other out for most of the Fall and Winter, adding even to the quasi-normal team that was Sexual Aggression. Also, Runaway Train was World Champion. Yeah, it's that reign. So, here's the lineup for the 1st Supreme TV of December 2005. Remember, the old SWF.com Xclusives are included with the Archives, so we'll be watching those as well.
