DAVEFAN95 Posted June 11, 2017 Share Posted June 11, 2017 Wrestling is a cut throat business and everybody is looking for the next big breakout star. However, sometimes things don't quite work out for a handpicked star and he doesn't get as over as the booker wants him too or maybe he does something that kills his push. I want to know who have you guys tried pushed in your private/diary games in the C-Verse/T-Verse/Real world etc but it never worked out for whatever reason. I'll get the ball rolling with a few of my own stories. Clark Alexander Before I switched computers, I had a private game in TEW 2016 as ELITE Pro wrestling where former porn star turned actor turned TV Executive Tommy Pecker (Real Name: Thomas Eckerton) was tasked by Arcadia to make a professional wrestling company for the network. With Pecker placed as the owner, he hired former SWF booker Peter Michaels to book his new cult company, EPW. Based purely on the risque, cult and T&A product, some of the workers were given their own gimmick names that the company could own. Clark Alexander was the evil Religious Zealot Deacon Alexander, a perfect main event level heel for the company's rabid fans to boo. Deacon started off as a main eventer and was pushed from the beginning with big wins over Marc DuBois and Texas Pete in the first two shows to push him to the moon. I continued his push over the next few months where he held the main belt for about a year and a half. Despite having a decent run putting on meh to decent grades, he never truly reached the heights in popularity I wanted him to. He had an awesome character and looked like the right choice to push, he even had three goons for awhile Doug Peak as Elias, Marvel Malloy as Noah and Storm Spillane as Issac. Despite his momentum being through the roof and creatively being one of my best characters ever, he topped out at 55-59 pop around the US, with Fro Sure as Black Power face DeShawn Bryant, Remmy Skye as face stoner Bernie Blaze and Greg Gauge as Underworld mafia leader The Boss, face stoner Marc DuBois and heel alcoholic Texas Pete all being more popular, Alexander lost the belt to DeShawn Bryant at EPW's biggest show, Seek and Destroy in August 2017 and was dropped down the card from that point forward before I lost the save due to save corruption when passing it over to my new computer. I've tried to restart it recently but it never really got off the ground. Marc Speed In a recent run with TCW, Marc Speed was my pick for the new "heel" of TCW, picking him as a challenge due to his poor ent skills and meh SQ. Having him beat veterans Peak, Bryant, Hill and Anderson to make his way up the card, his true coming out party was when he beat Ricky Dale Johnson at Total Mayhem in 2017 to become the top heel in the company. It all looked good until at Hotter Than Hell later that year when he lost to Sammy Bach in a number one contenders match for the TCW World title (to face Aaron Andrews at Destructive behaviour), he dropped from a 82-84 pop to 75-78 and Sammy went from 82-83 to 85-87. I got Speed's pop back to around 82 when he lost to Jay Chord at A Little South of Sanity when he dropped back to around 76 while Chord jumped from 80 to 84. It seemed every time he lost a "big match" he dropped a huge amount of pop and I lost faith in him and jobbed him back down the card to a midcard roll. I eventually just deleted the save as once 2018 hit, I was finally starting to bleed stars as Bach, Golden, Taylor and Hawkins all left for SWF (Hawkins, Bach and Taylor) and USPW (Golden) in 2018. Mascara Roja Jr In a MHW save I've been running for awhile, I wanted to get Roja into my main event after two years as a midcard presence. With Blue Phantom, El Mitico, Felipe Caballero, Jagged and Mustang Blanco, all of which had 57 or higher in pop in Northern Mexico (my home region), I needed to get Roja to get to 50 to get him in the main event so I set my sights in late 2017 to get him there. However, it hasn't quite worked out so far. His pop hasn't increased since Dec 2017, I'm now in May 2018 and it seems he has topped out at 48 pop, just short of the 50 I need to get him to the ME level. This is strictly a matches only game and despite him holding the midcard belt since February, I haven't been able to get him those final few points to get to the top. I now hand the mic to you, GDS community. Who have you tried to push and didn't quite work out. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
