I thought I had accomplished everything I’d sought out to do, and I thought I’d be happy living out my days on the ranch. “But once wrestling gets in your blood, you can’t seem to get it out.” Christian Faith took a sip from a nearby water bottle as he stood behind a podium, speaking to a small gaggle of reporters. Formerly one of the biggest stars in the world of professional wrestling, he’d been out of the public eye for several years following his “Icon vs. Icon” match with Jack Bruce. Now, though, Christian Faith was about to dip his toe back into the waters he thought he’d left behind. “I’m here today to announce the start of a new independent promotion called Southern Championship Wrestling.” Cameras click and reporters fumble for their phones, looking to tweet the breaking news. “Before anyone gets it twisted, this is not going to be something that challenges SWF or USPW, at least not yet. My aim is to invest in some younger talent, while also providing fans in the Mid South area with a fun, workrate-oriented product they’ll enjoy twice a month. I won’t be mortgaging the ranch, or attempting to bring legends out of retirement, or anything like that. “The aim of Southern Championship Wrestling is to provide an environment that grows young stars and attracts the best independent talent from around the world. I will personally be working with the wrestlers we bring in, and it’s my hope that we can put on some fun shows. “Speaking of which, the first show will be scheduled for a few Sundays from now, and it will be called SCW Awakening, in a nod to getting this company off the ground. We’re already in talks with a number of top talents, and we can confirm that the first show will feature an eight-man tournament for the SCW World Championship and a match for the SCW Tag Team Championships. “Any questions?” A reporter in the front shouted a response. “There are rumors you’ve been in contact with members of the Confederation of the Territories. Any truth to that?” “I’ve reached out to a few company heads, but if you’re asking if we’ll be joining up, the answer is no. I did give them a heads-up, and I asked if they had any problem with me using some of their talent if I made efforts to stay off of their planned dates. Nobody had any issues with that.” “Can you confirm the talent you’ve already talked to?” A snarky smile came over Christian’s face. “…well, what’s the fun in that? Come out to Awakening and see for yourself. “That’s all I’ve got time for right now. Thanks for coming out!” - - - - - It’s been a long, long time since I’ve played a game as a smaller company. I had an MAW thread for a while a few years ago, but this is going to be a bit different. In this scenario, retired superstar Christian Faith returns to the business to lead a company, teach a few younger guys, and hopefully make some money. This game is being played in DerekV’s C-Verse mod, which made a few tweaks to popularity and accelerated declines for older workers. I was inspired to do this by TCP1’s amazing NYCW thread, so expect a lot of similarities to that (as Pablo Picasso once said, “Bad artists copy, good artists steal!”). The WIRE thread, where I run BHOTWG, is still my first priority, but this seemed like a fun venture, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes. Below is the information on our product. I’m hoping to start running shows today, and I’m hoping they go well!
