Darin Walker Posted September 7, 2017 Share Posted September 7, 2017 Experiment time. The basic idea is to take all the challenging things about a Local to Global game, and just get rid of them. Though I'm starting with nothing for popularity or prestige and the like, I am starting with half a billion bucks in the bank, maxed production values, and our very own commercial network with enormous coverage around the world. So let's see how fast we can get to the top with literally all the advantages possible. I'm calling it Wrestling Champions of the World, so I can use the WCW initials. However the game informs me the initials are already used. I suppose I wouldn't get away with it in real life either. So I'll put a dot in it and claim it's a new logo. Wc.W for life! I'm playing in the July version of Fliesh's Real World mod. Always my favorite. I went for a family friendly, mainstream style promotion, just because it's the opposite of my usual zone, and trying new things is always a good experience. Not surprisingly, flitering for good entertainment skills has turned my roster into the wrestling retirement home. I also pick up some 21 and under kids, so they can do the bumping for the old fogies and maybe learn something from them. Oh, and some fat dudes too, just because. Full Impact Pro have upped their production levels. Guess I'm having an effect already. EVOLVE does shortly after too. WCW Live I decided to do a weekly 2 hour show. Not a real original name, but whatever. Not sure if I'm going to do pay-per-views or not down the road. Maybe a TV special now and then. Live in front of 23 people. Got to start somewhere. The hosts are Jimmy Korderas and Shane Douglas. I had Matt Stryker lined up, but apparently he works Mondays already. off to a good start. Good thing our ref does some announcing on the side. Kevin Nash is here to tell us how awesome we are, and that we're beginning a World title tournament tonight. Also, he's in charge. Nothing bad can come of that, right? Rating: B- Raven is out to talk about his upcoming match with Charlie Haas. Yes, I hired Raven for my family-friendly promotion, shut up. He's just mopey now, I promise. Rating: D+ Raven vs. Charlie Haas You know, I just can't picture this match in my head. Weird. Charlie's gimmick sucks. I probably should have selected instead of assuming his default was fine. Instead I'll blame him. Raven wins. Rating: D-. No Gimmick Needed, by the way. I'd say he needs one after all. Next up is a music video from Rikishi. Bet that was a thing you didn't know you wanted until now. Rating: D- Ryan Kidd is out to follow that act, along with his manager, Gregory Helms. Mr. Helms informs us that he is the leader of a group of young talent that is going to take the world by storm. A guy who used to be name hurricane making a weather reference, shocker. Anyway, Kidd takes over and says he can take on anyone we got. Oh dear. Rating: E+ Ryan Kidd vs VADER Yeah, it's in all caps. That's how it always sound in my head. Like a quarter ton zombie BILLY MAYS, if that makes sense. Squish goes the rookie and man these ratings are getting worse. Rating: E-. Seriously. Matt Morgan is out to save the show. He did very well in his unscripted promo, which clearly displays how awful his gimmick is. The previous sentence gains more meaning when you discover that I planned to put the title on him. Oh, spoilers by the way. Rating: D+. Well at least the segment ratings are improving. Matt Morgan vs Rikishi I knew I should have put Rikishi over. His gimmick doesn't suck. Ah well, Matt goes over and perfoms better than Kishi anyhow. Rating: D A music video about Scott Steiner follows. I like to think it's just a loop of the .Rating: C- Teddy Hart and Justin Credible vs Blue World Order Though I'm doing the show and write up tonight, I actually booked this last night before bed. I don't even remembering hiring them, except Stevie Richards. Justin's gimmick is average. Justin Credible, average. SHOCKER. Teddy Hart continues to look like the goof who sold me weed back in school. Rating: E+. And he overcharged, too. Scott Steiner attacks Raven backstage. No way to be sure if it's a scripted attack, or Scott just being Scott in the locker room. Rating: C.. What's a backstage attack look like in a family friendly show? I bet it involves foam swords and a ball pit. Buff Bagwell is out to talk about his upcoming match with Bully Ray. I wonder if they ever fought before. Seems like they'd be a good fit. Rating: C-. Better promo than you, Raven. For shame. Bully Ray vs Buff Bagwell Bully Ray went over. Three guesses whose gimmick was awful!Rating: D. So apparently badass is not a good gimmick for this product. Bully Ray beats up Buff beacuse I don't like him. Which makes me wonder why I hired him. Rating: D- Scott Steiner is out for an unscripted promo. To quote the King of Memphis, "Oh boy!". He struggled going of script. Probably all those words we had to censor. But the game said he looked good anyway. Whatever floats your boat, TEW. Rating: C- Charlie Haas and Buff Bagwell are having an argument about who sucked the worse tonight. My vote's for Buff. Jake Roberts comes over to them they can work it out in a match next week. No idea if that means Jake's in charge too, or he just figures no one will contradict him. Rating: D- Mr. Anderson is out here to talk about his match with Scott Steiner tonight. Also put Degenerate down on the no gimmick list. Rating: C Scott Steiner vs Mr. Anderson The promos are definitely going to carry the show. Because the matches sure ain't. Scott went over, because I wouldn't tell him otherwise. Rating: D+ Final Show Rating: C-. That'll do. Also need to get the announcing situation sorted, because Jimmy's not even good enough for this crowd. Post show, Bully Ray emails me to say thatk Ryan Kidd doesn't get 'it'. Not really concerned with your opinion, thanks. He's just a jobber anyway, so shove off or I'll put him over you. Our TV rating is....best not spoken of. I'll let you know when it climbs out of the gutter. So, join us next time, where we have both the World title semifinals, as well as the battle for the least crappy wrestler. Exciting, isn't it.
