TCW: The Texan Rides Again

Recommended Posts

<p></p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><em>Ricky Dale Johnson awakens to a loud knock. Plenty drousy, Ricky struggles to open his eyes to see his wife standing in the doorway of their bedroom.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Mrs. Johnson:</strong> *annoyed* Rick, you left your cell phone downstairs and it has been ringing over and over. Will you please go get it?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Couldn’t you just have brought it up to me?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Mrs. Johnson:</strong> If I did that, then how would I ever get you out of bed?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Without another word, his wife departs from the bedroom. She’s right. Ricky’s head hurts from another bender. </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

It’s been well over two years since Ricky Dale Johnson hung up his wrestling boots. It’s been a mixed world ever since. During the daytime, he is able to block out all the voices. Quality time with his wife and children plus plenty of work on the ranch makes that easy.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

It’s not so easy when daylight sets for the day. There’s nothing much to do then, especially after the kids go to bed. The voices are loud and clear then. The sound of the crowd begging him not to leave on his final day in the wrestling world. There he stood in the middle of the ring, eyes filled with tears, wondering whether he was doing the right thing.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Ricky doesn’t regret retiring, not entirely. He knew his body just wasn’t up to it anymore. He saw what was going on around him. The likes of Aaron Andrews, Wolf Hawkins, & Jay Chord flying all over the ring, putting on five star matches. Meanwhile, it hurt Ricky’s ailing knees just to step through the ropes.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Then it came to that one fateful day. He had to finally had to chose which road he wished to take. Did he want to keep on going until he just broke down completely? Or did he want to bow out with some grace before making a complete fool of himself?</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Ricky took the road of grace, despite it having quite the bitter taste.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

At night, only one thing can quiet those voices in his head. That one thing is a large helping of booze, no matter how much it might hurt his head the next day. </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Last night was a bad one for Ricky. He made the mistake of watching some old matches, which meant he had to drink more and more. Now, as the morning sunlight peers into the bedroom and claws at his pupils, Ricky faces the consequences of the previous evening’s decisions.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Thankfully without seeing another soul in the process, a hung over Ricky stumbles downstairs to find his cell phone. He realizes he is plenty late to assist his ranch hands on the farm’s daily duties, but he doesn’t care about that right now. That seems to be happening more and more recently, especially during the winter time. Right now, all he cares about is finding that dang phone before Mrs. Johnson scolds him once more. </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

There’s no doubt about it. Mrs. Johnson has been on his case more recently. Nothing too cold. She just wants Ricky to know that “she” knows. Heck, she probably saw this coming from a mile away. She was a wrestler’s wife, of course. She had to deal with him on the road for what must have felt like an eternity. Mrs. Johnson must have known the transition wasn’t going to be swift and sweet, no matter how much Ricky might claim things to be.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Ricky is delighted to see his cell phone on the coffee table right in front of his favorite chair. It allows him to plop right down in front of his big screen television. It had been only hours ago that the coffee table had a plethora of beer cans on it as well, but Mrs. Johnson had been kind enough to take care of them.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

The cell phone lights up as Ricky lifts it off the table. It’s almost eleven in the morning, and he has already missed five phone calls. They’re all from the same person. Kyle. It all comes back to Ricky, and he’s left to crumble into his cozy chair, clutching his face.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

He was supposed to be on the road early for a breakfast meeting with Kyle Rhodes, CEO of Total Championship Wrestling. The wrestling company he was with for over twenty years, almost since the start of the company. For so many years, people said he was the heart and soul of TCW. The same people say that the company desperately missed that heart and soul.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Kyle told him it was just a meeting between him and Ricky, but Ricky knew there would be one or two BriCo suits sticking their noises in. BriCo was the company that pretty much saved TCW from extinction when it was repeatedly getting punched in the face by its competitors. Yes, BriCo had saved the company, but had no idea how to revitalize TCW back anywhere near its glory days. </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

BriCo had no idea how to build a wrestling company, and certainly didn’t know how to save it. That’s where Kyle Rhodes came into play. Ricky and Kyle had joined TCW at nearly the same time, way back in December 1996. They weren’t best friends, but they had a solid relationship as a result of many years working together. BriCo made Kyle the CEO of TCW, the brains behind the company. Kyle was the man who kept TCW afloat, but he was too busy plugging holes to ever get the ship anywhere.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Ricky had plenty of respect for Kyle to not leave him hanging, but he knew what the meeting was going to be about. No, he wasn’t to try and talk Ricky back for “one more match.” Kyle had already stopped asking that about a year ago. Kyle probably just wanted to bring back the old Texas booked to show up and wave to the crowd. Ya know, sell a couple extra tickets. Lord knows TCW could use the extra bucks.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Total Mayhem, TCW’s biggest show of the year, wasn’t that far off. Maybe Kyle just wanted to try to talk Ricky into taking part of the big show. Last year, he managed to convince Ricky into participating as a special guest referee. Maybe he wanted Ricky to play the role of zebra yet again.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Before he could open his phone and click on Kyle’s name to call, the doorbell to the house rang. Ricky paused, hoping someone else was willing to answer that. The doorbell rang again. He heard no footsteps throughout the house. Looked like Ricky was the lucky winner.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Ricky was quite surprised to open the door to see Kyle Rhodes standing out on his porch.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Kyle?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Kyle:</strong> Ricky! You forget something?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> *embarrassed* Yeah yeah…sorry, I was just about to call.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Kyle:</strong> You okay man? You don’t look too great.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Yeah…I got a bit of a cold. That’s why I overslept. Sorry.</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Kyle Rhodes froze there briefly, staring at Ricky and his messy hair and beard. His wrinkled clothes told the story of a man who had just crawled out of bed. Most of all, he could smell the stale booze on Ricky’s breathe.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Kyle decided to ignore it. He knew the tale all too well after so many years in the business.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Kyle:</strong> Water under the bridge. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> The BriCo snobs pissed off cause I stood them up?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Kyle responded with a little smirk. The smirk said “you caught me.”</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Well, poor them…</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Kyle:</strong> You mind if I come in? I have a little business to speak about.</p></div><p></p><p></p>

Mrs. Johnson was already in the process of making coffee for her husband, Ricky. After overhearing the conversation at the front door, she began to make a second cup for their guest. Kyle and Ricky were already seated in the living room when she brought the two mugs to the gentlemen.


RDJ: Thanks, hun.


Kyle: Yes, thank you, Ms. Johnson. How are you?


Mrs. Johnson: Better now that this old geezer is out of bed.


With a grin, Mrs. Johnson left the two men alone in the living room. Flustered, Ricky was left to sit there red-faced. He tried to hide it by sipping his coffee that was still too hot to drink.


Kyle: You want to do the pleasantries, Rick? Or do you want to get down to business?


RDJ: Please, for the love of god, just business. My wife is plenty ticked at me for sleeping the morning away.


Kyle: *laughing* Fair enough then. I just have a proposition I thought you might be interested in. Something big.


Ricky placed his mug down and shook his head. He was ready to shoot Kyle down.


RDJ: Kyle, I thought we were past this. I don’t care what match you or Brent (Hill) created in your head. It doesn’t matter how much money. You can forget it.


Kyle: No Rick, it has nothing to…


RDJ: Besides, who would I even wrestle? Wolf? Aaron? Eddie? Been there, done it. I guess I could do something with Rip’s boy, but he’s a little @$$. I don’t think you have enough money to ever talk me into that.


Kyle: Rick, I’m not trying to talk you back into wrestling. I’m here to try to pick at your brain.


Ricky sat there staring at Kyle, confused. It must have been obvious on Ricky’s face, because Kyle decided to continue on.


Kyle: *uncomfortable* Look, I’m not going to sit here and act like TCW is doing great right now. We’re alive, but well? I don’t think I can say so. Anytime I think I have something going well, it just isn’t enough to make up ground with USPW and SWF.


Ricky: What can I say? Losing Rocky was a huge hit. It still hurts, I can tell. But, I don’t blame you for not paying Rocky that type of money. I don’t think one man is worth that much dough, not even Rocky.


Kyle: Not just Rocky. We lost you, too, Rick.


RDJ: Yes…well…I was trying to be modest there.


Kyle: No need to be modest. The company misses you a lot, Rick. Even if you don’t wrestle ever again, TCW could really use someone like you on the inside.


RDJ: So if you don’t want me to wrestle, what do you want me to?


Kyle: You want the truth?


Ricky: I guess. Of course.


Kyle grew silent. Ricky watched as his old friend grew more agitated before his eyes..


Kyle: Look, I can sense something changing in the mood with BriCo. They’re not hinting or threatening anything. But if I don’t do something? If I don’t change things for the better? Well…I just have a bad feeling.


RDJ: Okay, but what you want me to do? How can I help?


Kyle: I just want you to take part in creative meetings. Once a week at the headquarters in San Antonio. It’s not that far from here.


RDJ: Yes, Kyle, I’ve been there.


Kyle: *embarrassed* Well, yes, of course. Rick, nobody knows this business better than you. Not just wrestling itself, but you could talk the people right into giving up their cold hard cash. I could use you in those creative meetings to give a little boost.


RDJ: I think you have plenty of help already, Kyle. I mean, you got Brent and Joel (Bryant) working with you. They know the business just as much as I do.


Kyle: Yes, they know wrestling, but they don’t know how to “sell” wrestling. If it was up to Joel and Brent, everybody would have a fifteen minute submission matches. People don’t tune into wrestling nowadays for armbars. They want great action and awesome stories. That’s why I need a guy like you in our creative meetings.


While Ricky sits there thinking, Kyle continues further.


Kyle: We’ll pay you for your time, of course. Like said, once a week. All you have to do is keep up with the business. We’ll give you all the video footage you’d possibly need, all the information you’d need. All you’d have to do is show up once a week and give your opinion on the wrestlers, on the storyline, on the entire company.


RDJ: And what if I say something BriCo doesn’t like?


Kyle: Then you let me deal with that. It’s just you expressing your opinion anyway. I’m the one that will always stand under fire.


Ricky takes a long sip of his coffee and turns to look out the nearby window before responding.


RDJ: I’m not sure I can do it, Kyle.


Kyle: What do you mean?


RDJ: You want me to just dip my toes in. I’m not sure I can do that. The itch would be too bad.


Kyle: I understand, Rick. Look, this was just an offer. It’s not hard feelings if-…


RDJ: I didn’t say no, Kyle. I would just need time to consider it. Can you give me that?


Kyle: Of course! Take as much time as you need.


Later That Night….


Ricky sits alone in his cozy chair with a glass of whiskey in his grasp. Yet again, he has made the mistake of putting one of his old matches on the television. This time, it’s one of his classic battles with Tommy Cornell. His battles with Tommy feel like just yesterday, yet his hair is much darker on television than it is presently.


Mrs. Johnson enters the room and sits down on the chair near Ricky. She takes a moment to watch the match on television, then turns to her husband.


Mrs. Johnson: You beat Tommy for the title in this one?


RDJ: No, sadly not. He’s got me on this one. It’s one of our best matches, though.


After a long pause, Mrs. Johnson tells Ricky what he needs to hear.


Mrs. Johnson: Take the job offer.


Stunned, Ricky looks at his wife with jaw agape.


RDJ: You serious?


Mrs. Johnson: What’s the big deal? You will only be away for a day, maybe two. Besides, you’re a wrestler. You need to stop pretending you don’t need wrestling in your life, retired or not. Maybe this meeting thing will make you cut back on a bottle of Jack or two.


Mrs. Johnson is surprised to see Ricky isn’t excited to hear this. Instead, Ricky grows solemn, and his eyes droop down to the floor.


Mrs. Johnson: What’s wrong?


Ricky looks up towards his wife.


RDJ: What if that isn’t enough? What if I just want more than just some stupid meetings?


Mrs. Johnson: What? You want to wrestle again?


Frantically, Ricky shakes his head.


RDJ: Hell no. I don’t think so. I mean, I’m almost fifty years old, I’d just embarrass myself out there.


Mrs. Johnson: Okay, then what?


RDJ: *Pause* What if I just to go back out on the road? Just go out and be with the business?


Mrs. Johnson takes Ricky by the hand.


Mrs. Johnson: If that keeps you from drinking yourself to death, then so be it. Whatever you need to do Rick, me and the kids are right behind you.


The Next Morning


Sitting at his desk at BriCo Headquarters, Kyle Rhodes notices that his cell phone screen lights up. When he sees the initials “RDJ” on the screen, Kyle is quick to answer the phone. He knows that he is going to get the answer he desires.


Kyle: Ricky! What can I do for you?


RDJ: Kyle, I just wanted to let you know that I’m in. That is, if you’re willing to meet my price tag.


Kyle: Ricky, you matter as much to this company as anybody ever will. We will figure out money. Don’t you worry about that.


Kyle says that, knowing that he currently has a strict budget. He hopes it won’t come back and bite him in the rear.


RDJ: Fair enough. But there is one big thing I need.


Kyle: What’s that?


RDJ: *slight pause* I want to go back on the road. If I’m going to help the guys, I need to work with the guys in person. That’s the only way this is going to work.


Kyle: What are you saying? You want to be a Road Agent or something?


RDJ: I’ll be whatever you want me to be. I just need to be there working with them if you want results. Just sitting in some corporate meeting isn’t going to find results. You know that, Kyle.


Kyle does know that. It’s just what BriCo likes Kyle to do. It “looks” good for the head honchos.


Kyle: So how often do you want to be on the road?


RDJ: Just for television. Pay-Per-View. Big stuff. I don’t think my knees could tolerate traveling to every house show, if we’re being honest.


Ricky waits for an answer from Kyle. It doesn’t come right away.


RDJ: You there, Kyle? BriCo cut you off?


Kyle: Yeah, I was just thinking. You just gave me an idea. I just don’t know if you’d be up for it.


RDJ: Oh yeah? What is that? You going to bring back the Cruiserweight Tag Titles and make us champions? I’d have to go on a diet.


Kyle: *laughs* No Rick…but hear me out. If you’re going to be there, let’s get you back on television.


RDJ: What do you mean? I’m not wrestling, Kyle. Get over it.


Kyle: No no, not wrestle. But…TCW sure could use an on-screen authority figure…

And there you have it, folks. Starting in January 2020, Ricky Dale Johnson is about to return to the company he calls home for over twenty years. And, with every major show, you will get not just the results, but an inside look of what’s going on backstage at TCW.


I hope you enjoy the ride, and let’s see how far I can go with this sucker!


The Texan Rides Again!

Thanks folks. I'll see how far I can take this.


Pretty much, my plan is for the actual shows to take a minor backseat in this diary. Instead, I want to create a backstage view from the eyes of RDJ, and be as creative as possible with it.


That said, I'll include a screen caption of every show result, and some details pertaining to it.


I might do things differently for PPVs. Maybe I'll do a full, in-depth review of the big events. Still haven't decided on that, yet. I have four episodes of Total Wrestling to mess with my process before I have to decide.


And lastly, this is me playing my first (devoted) game on TEW2020, so you can potentially see make some stupid mistakes! :D

January – Week 1 – 2020


Creative Meeting


Kyle Rhodes: Well Ricky, I didn’t just bring you in to see there and look pretty…


RDJ: Ya didn’t?!


Rhodes: *laughs* No, I certainly did not. I asked that on your first day here that you might review our roster. Do you think you’re ready to do that?


Ricky pauses. He looks over the table in the meeting room at BriCo Headquarters. Rhodes, Brent Hill, Joel Bryant, and a few nameless BriCo suits are waiting on him. Ricky looks back at Rhodes and grins.


RDJ: That depends on how honest you want me to be.


Rhodes: I didn’t ask you come back to be nice. Just kill me gently.


RDJ: *chuckles* Listen, I’m pulling your leg. It’s not as bad as some internet geeks might make it out to be, but there’s a lot of work to be done. Folks, at the top we have it pretty solid. Could it be better? Sure. But, Aaron (Andrews) is killing it right now as your top babyface, and Wolf (Hawkins) is the best top heel you could possibly ask for. His Syndicate could be built a little better but…


Rhodes: Wait, how so? What’s wrong with the Syndicate?


RDJ: *shrugs* Well, Doc Hammond is a solid wrestler, but I think you could use a better second-in-command to Wolf. Maybe some talented up and comer. You don’t have any future with the Syndicate, just the present with Wolf. The rest of the guys are…well…goons.


Hill: Who do you think would be a good second-in-command to Wolf?


RDJ: Well…that’s the problem. I don’t think that guy is on the roster right now. And that’s the problem with the roster right now. You got a bunch of talented guys. Aaron, Wolf, Sammy, Jay, Freddy, Josh, I can go on. But aside from Rip’s boy, these guys are all in their thirties. You got nearly forty wrestlers, and less than ten of them are under thirty. That’s not how you build a future. And I hate to say it folks….but you have a bunch of guys on their last legs, too.


Rhodes: So you think we need more youth? That’s it?


RDJ: *shakes his head* No…well…yes. You need youth, but you also need more guys who are ready to grab that brass ring. You have talent…but…


Bryant: A lot of guys are just happy to get a paycheck.


Ricky points to Bryant, crediting him for completing his sentence.


RDJ: Exactly! You look at your midcard guys. They’re fine overall, but which one of these guys do you see moving up to the big time? I mean, you have a roster flooded with journeyman. That’s fine if you just want to stay afloat. But I thought our goal was to compete with SWF and USPW?


Rhodes: Of course that’s our goal.


RDJ: Then you need to rejuvenate this roster with fresh talent. Talent ready to take the reins and potentially become a star. The other two companies are having the same problem, more or less. We need to scoop up top talent quicker than they do.


Hill: Hey guys, speaking of which, what did you think of the kid who’s film I sent over? Davis Wayne Newton?


Bryant: Loved it. The kid is technically sound in the ring.


RDJ: Perfect example. That kid is exactly what this company needs right now. He needs to improve on the mic, but he could run circles around some of our guys in the ring. We give a kid like Davis some time, maybe give him a mouthpiece, and he could become one of our best workers.


Kyle Rhodes nods in approval, liking what he hears.


Rhodes: Brent, bring this Davis kid in for a couple tryouts. We can put him on the house shows this weekend if he can get here.


Hill: You got it.


Rhodes: Alright Rick, let’s focus on the gold now. What do you think of our current champions?


RDJ: Aaron is money as your World Champion. That’s pretty obvious. He’s top in merchandise, and he has the perfect adversary in Wolf. I mean, those two could feud all the way to Total Mayhem, no problem.


Rhodes: That’s what I want to hear. What about Greg Gauge?


RDJ: *shrugs* Greg is perfect for the TV Title. In-ring, the kid is money. He’s just as good as his big brother and his dad. But to be honest, I just don’t know if he’ll ever become a main event, but the kid can put on top notch matches with practically everyone.


Bryant: I just don’t know if he’ll ever get out of his family’s shadow.


RDJ: *nods* Yeah, sad to say I agree. Guess we’ll see. But if your goal is to put him over as a successful TV Champion, booking him against Benny Benson is perfect. Benny can make anyone look like gold.


Rhodes: Alright, so that leaves our Tag Champs, The Behemoths. What d’ya say?


RDJ: *sigh* I mean, they’re a decent team. But what are you guys doing with the tag team division? It’s abysmal! I mean, why did you guys break up The New Wave?


Hill: It just felt like it was time, Rick.


RDJ: When they’re forty?! Don’t you think we kind of missed that mark?


Rhodes: We just agreed it was that time, Rick. Guide and Scout did all they could together.


Ricky waves his hands in surrender.


RDJ: Fine, whatever. But, that doesn’t change that your tag team division is a wasteland, and the tag division is a great place to build new stars.


Bryant: And revive stars, too.


RDJ: Exactly. I mean, there’s just nothing there, folks! Before we concern ourselves with who should be wearing the gold, we need to give the champs some legitimate contenders. You got Devine Fortune, The Elite, and what else?


Hill: There’s Benson & Foxx.


RDJ: Well, Benny is busy with Gauge right now, so scratch that team. As far as Behemoths go…ehhh…they’re fine. Killer Shark has the look, I just don’t know if the talent is ever going to catch up. And Titan? Well…yeah…journeyman. But the way your tag teams look? They’re perfectly fine as your champs…for now.


There’s silence in the room as Kyle Rhodes considers Ricky’s opinion. He isn’t fond of the harsh criticism, especially since it was his call to disband The New Wave, more so than anyone else in the room. But he also can’t lie to himself. Ricky is absolutely right about the tag division.


Rhodes: Alright, maybe we should take a long look at the roster and cook up some new teams. Maybe bring some guys. In the meantime, we’ll keep on having Shark & Titan feud with Mighty Meaty.


Ricky can’t help himself but laugh. The entire room dies in awkward silence. Ricky looks around the room, then notices that Kyle didn’t take his laughter too kindly.


Rhodes: Something to say, Ricky?


RDJ: *pause* Permission to speak freely?




RDJ: Listen, I love the big guy Tana just as must as anyone here. He’s my boy. But…why in god’s name are you wasting Mo’s best years in that god forsaken tag team?


Later That Week


Ricky Dale Johnson is exhausted after only an hour or so backstage at Total Wrestling. So many hugs. So many handshakes. So many people asking him if he’s going to tie up the boots yet again. Kyle Rhodes hasn’t told the locker room why Ricky is at the show just yet, though the rumors are beginning to float. They’re at the West Texas Coliseum, so for all that most know, Ricky is just there to visit old friends.


Ricky is in the middle of a conversation with his old pal John Anderson, aka Human Arsenal. Anderson has an ear in the office, so he already knows that Ricky is back to ride with the boys. With the secret, Ricky talks with Anderson about a creative idea that came up for John.


RDJ: Listen man, you’re not that far behind me. You need to make the best of your last days, John.


Anderson: I hear ya. I just don’t know if I really want to lock in with yet another tag team partner.


Respectfully, Mighty Mo approaches the two and interrupts the conversation.


Mo: Excuse me, John. Hey Rick! The boys said you wanted to talk to me?


RDJ: Hey Mo! How have you been, kid?


Mo: I’ve been alright. It’s good to see you, Cowboy.


RDJ: Likewise!


Ricky says his goodbyes to Anderson, then walks with Mighty Mo to an empty locker room backstage. Ricky closes the door for privacy.


Mo: So are the rumors true? Are you back on the road?


RDJ: Ummm…yeah…more or less. No more wrestling, I’m just here to help you kiddies. Maybe a little more here and there. I guess we’ll see.


Mo: So what? You got an office gig or something?


RDJ: *shrugs* I guess…maybe. I don’t really have a title. I’m just here to help, and right now I’m here to help you, Mo.


Mo: Help me how?


RDJ: Well, I talked to Kyle earlier this week, and he agreed with me that it’s time you get the big opportunity that you’re well overdue for. Starting in tonight’s show, we’re disbanding Mighty Meaty, and you’re going to start a feud with Eddie Peak and set up several singles matches. The hope is get you over real good by the end.


Mo: Wow, really? Is Tana okay with that?


RDJ: We haven’t told Tana yet, but trust me, he’ll be fine with this. Tana will be happy for you. The truth is, Mo, this company really needs fresh new stars at the top, and I convinced Kyle that you could be one of those new stars. You’ve been here with this company for a decade now. You’re in your prime, and I think it’s time to see if you can shine.


Mo: Wow Rick, I appreciate you saying all that. Thanks man.


RDJ: Don’t thank me yet. This is on you, Mo. You have to prove that you deserve this push. Like I said, you’ve been here ten years. It’s time to sink or swim. Do you know where you rank in merchandise?


Mighty Mo takes a moment to ponder.


Mo: Top ten?


RDJ: *shake heads* Try top five! The crowd loves you, Mo. Now it’s time to prove that you can be a World Champion in their eyes. So take this seriously. This might be the only chance you get…..

January – Week 2 – 2020


Backstage At Total Wrestling


Ricky is standing at the gorilla position, waiting for his cue. Cowboy hat in hand, sporting a fine suit, he feels the jitters as if he was just some rookie. Kyle Rhodes Ricky to make his big announcement last week in his home state of Texas, but Ricky insisted on letting that show be around the star studded main event (Wolf Hawkins vs Sammy Bach vs Jay Chord).


Besides, the Texas crowd would be half expecting Ricky to make an appearance, as he has various times since retirement. But the crowd in Missouri State Armoury? They wouldn’t expect him to make an appearance tonight.


“You ready, champ?”


Goosebumps on his skin, Ricky looks up to see the TCW World Heavyweight Champion, Aaron Andrews.


RDJ: As ready as I’m going to be.


Andrews: They’re going to go nuts for you, you know that?


Ricky nods, hoping he is right.


Inside the arena, the voice of Jason Azaria booms.


Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my honor to introduce one of the greatest wrestlers ever to step into this ring. He is a 3 Time TCW World Heavyweight Champion. He is a TCW Hall of Famer. He is…RICKY…DALE…JOHNSON!


The crowd erupts, and is quickly matched by the sound of “Shoot To Thrill” by AC/DC. Frozen in time, Ricky is woken up by a pat on the back by Andrews. Ricky nods to Andrews, puts on his cowboy hat, and heads through the curtains to a huge pop.


Ricky tries not to waste too much time getting to the ring, but finds himself basking in the love. Carefully stepping into the ring, making sure his cowboy hat stays on, Ricky accepts the mic from Jason Azaria.


The music cuts. Ricky attempts to start talking, but the crowd won’t let him.


R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J!


With a smile, Ricky pleads with the fans to let him speak. Finally, the fans allow him to do so.


RDJ: Before you folks get your hopes up, my old behind isn’t coming out of a retirement! No, I’m here for a different reason. You see, I know I made the right decision to retire when I did. But when I sit at home as simple ol’ Rick Johnson, I can’t help but wonder what more I could have done for this company. So when I see this company struggling to be what it once was, it hurts me. All I want to do is help this company. Help the men in the back. Help the fans in the crowd. I want TCW to be the best wrestling company it could possibly be. Let’s be honest folks. TCW used to be the top company, but it’s not anymore. It’s not even close. But it can be! It can compete, and it can be the top company again!


I came here tonight to tell you that…no, I will never wrestle again. But I am back where I love, in TCW! I am back here to help those guys in the back reach their potential and then see if they can surpass it. I am back to help this company put on the best shows possible. I am back to help give you great fans the best experiences imaginable!


It is my great honor to inform you fans that as of January 2020, Ricky Dale Johnson has formidably agreed to become the Commissioner of the TCW Wrestling Roster!


Ricky pauses as he receives a large pop from the live crowd.


RDJ: And you have my word that I will do my best to back up everything I just said. I’m the sheriff around here now, and I plan on using my power to do what is best for TCW!


The crowd pops as “Invincible” by Skillet begins to play. The fans know it can be only one person. The TCW World Heavyweight Champion, Aaron Andrews! In street clothes, Andrews heads to the ring with the big gold on his shoulder. Andrews shakes hands with Ricky before calling for a mic.


Andrews: Rick, we have had our battles over the years. You even battled me for this title belt. We might not be the best of friends, or friends at all, but I know one thing is for certain. You ARE the heart of TCW!


The crowd goes nuts, and Andrews is forced to pause as the fans chant again.


R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J! R-D-J!


Andrews: Wrestling or retired, you will always be the heart of TCW. So, there’s no doubt in my mind that you are the authority figure that this company can use. So, I think I speak for the entire locker room when I say….Welcome back, Cowboy!


Andrews applauds Ricky, and the fans follow suit. The celebration is broken up, though, by the sound of “Uprising” by Muse. The crowd begins to boo, as it means TCW’s top heel stable is about to make an appearance. The Syndicate’s leader, Wolf Hawkins appears in the classic Syndicate suit and shades. By his side is none other than his enforcer Chris Flynn, also sporting the same gear. With his usual arrogance, Hawkins takes his time to enter the ring and demands his own microphone. Flynn stands at ringside, waiting for any potential orders.


Hawkins: Let’s get something straight, Andrews. You don’t speak for me, and you don’t speak for the Syndicate. Let’s just be clear. Ricky? I don’t give a damn about you being back in TCW. You’re just another old man looking for another paycheck.


RDJ: Oh yeah? Well, I remember one time this old man help break up your own little Syndicate group. Ya know, your group’s first rodeo. Remember? When you were just Tommy Cornell’s little puppy?


The crowd reacts with an OOOOOHHHHHH. Hawkins appears to be seething, but manages to maintain his composure.


Hawkins: That was a long time ago. But if you remember past history, I recall putting your shoulders to the mat many times over the years.


RDJ: That’s right, Wolf. Congratulations, you beat up on an old man. How admirable of you. But, as far I can tell, you’ve had trouble beating that guy over there. I’m talking about the guy wearing the big, shiny gold.


Ricky gestures to Aaron Andrews.


Hawkins: Patience, old man. It’s only a matter time before I pass you and become a 4-Time TCW World Heavyweight Champion! You hear that, Aaron? You’re looking at the #1 contender to that title, and it’s long overdue that the World Title belt comes back where it belongs! Right with us, The Syndicate!


Andrews: Yeah yeah yeah. Last I checked, you were the guy I beat to win this title, Wolf! Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem fighting you anytime! Anywhere!


RDJ: That’s great! I like to hear that! And ya know what, boys? I’m happy you both came out to welcome me in…well, sort of open arms! You just make my first day on the job easier, because I can just stand here and break my other big news!


Hawkins: Oh yeah? Well spill it, old man. I know you can’t run fast anymore, but you can at least talk faster.


RDJ: Cute! Very cute, Wolf! I’m happy you’re all worked up, because Malice in Wonderful is less than three weeks away! M-I-W! One of the most legendary shows in TCW, and it needs a proper main event to celebrate. That said…


Ricky steps back to the edge of the ring. He gestures to Andrews, then to Hawkins.


RDJ: I think I have the perfect main event right before me. You’re right Wolf, you earned yourself a title shot, and you are about to get it! At Malice in Wonderful, in the main event, you two will go to war once again! Aaron Andrews! Defending The TCW World Heavyweight Title Against Wolf Hawkins!


Ricky tips his cowboy hat to Andrews, then to Hawkins.


RDJ: Best of luck to ya, boys!

*Show Notes*


*Not happy with their Six Man Tag Loss the previous week, The Elite would interfere in the TCW Tag Team Championship Match, costing their rivals Devine Fortune their big opportunity against the champions, The Behemoths. Just another chapter in this ongoing feud!


*Freddy Huggins attempted to walk out on the main event, but his exit was blocked off by the giant, Tana The Mighty! Huggins had back off from a fight with Tana the previous week, but Tana wasn’t going to allow Huggins to back out of another fight!

January – Week 3 – 2020


Sunday - The Johnson Ranch


Standing in his kitchen, Ricky has his cup of morning in hand, but cannot even take a sip before he sees the name “Kyle” on his cell phone screen. He already knows it is bad news before ever picking it up. In just two weeks of working directly with Kyle Rhodes, he could already see that Kyle liked to save his good news for the creative meetings. He saved it for then so those BriCo executives could also hear it.


Despite the coffee still hot enough to burn skin, Ricky takes his chances and takes a sip before answering the phone.


RDJ: How can I help you, Kyle?


Rhodes: I got some bad news, Rick.


Reading Kyle like a book, RDJ fought back the desire to laugh.


Rhodes: It’s Wolf (Hawkins). He got hurt last night at the house show. Took a bad crash during a suicide dive.


RDJ: How bad is it?


Rhodes: Broken forearm.


Cover your kid’s ears, Ricky responds with some obscenities.


RDJ: Gosh darnit, for fudge’s sake.


Rhodes: You said it, brother.


RDJ: So, he’s out for Malice (In Wonderland)?


Rhodes: Well that’s my intentions, although Wolf is trying to talk me into letting him wrestle with the injury.


RDJ: Fudge that. Wolf still has plenty of years left ahead of him, no need to take such a chance. Plenty of time to have plenty five star battles with Aaron (Andrews) later.


Rhodes: My thoughts exactly. Now, I just got to figure out what to do with Aaron and the World Heavyweight Title. I mean, we’re going to losing money and viewers without Wolf, but we need to do our best to patch the holes.


RDJ: What are you thinking?


Rhodes: I can’t decide yet. I was thinking of adding Aaron to the Sammy (Bach) & Jay (Chord) match. Just make it a triple threat. But, we already have one planned triple threat title match on the card. I feels like that would be overkill.


RDJ: Yeah, then it wouldn’t be Malice in Wonderland. It would be the Triple Threat show. Nothing but Triple Threats!


Rhodes: *chuckles* For some reason, I don’t think that name would sell as well. So what do you think, cowboy? Have any ideas?


Thinking it over, Ricky pauses as he blows on his coffee. Carefully, he takes a large sip and savors the Colombian taste. By the time he’s done, he has an idea.


RDJ: Well Kyle, you split up the New Wave to find out what they can do as single competitors. Right?


Rhodes: *hesitant* Right…


RDJ: Well Kyle, I think it’s about time we find out what Jeremy can really do on his own….


Tuesday – Backstage At Total Wrestling


Kyle Rhodes, Brent Hill, & Ricky Dale Johnson are waiting in Rhodes’s office backstage at the Laurent Ballroom in New England. The office is really just an empty locker room, but nevertheless they have their privacy from the rest of the roster.


They hear the knock on the door that they’ve been waiting. In comes Wolf Hawkins, whose broken forearm is currently in both a cast and sling. Following behind him is Jeremy Finch. Finch goes by the wrestler name Doc Hammond. He is formerly Scout of the famous tag team The New Wave, now a member of Wolf’s Syndicate stable.


Hawkins: *gesturing to Finch* Found him!


Hawkins & Finch shakes hands with the other guys before Kyle Rhodes takes over the meeting. Finch immediately realizes that this is going to be a pretty huge conversation.


Rhodes: Well Jeremy, as you might have noticed, Wolf is a wee bit injured. Unfortunately, we are going to have to pull him from the main event at Malice in Wonderland. So, there’s a big hole in the card right now, and we need your help Jeremy. We want you to take Wolf’s spot in the main event and challenge Aaron (Andrews) for the World Title.


Despite having a clue of what was brewing, Finch’s eyes still grow wide and he begins to get excited.


Finch: Well, that’s a bombshell! It sucks, Wolf, what happened to you. But I’m ready to step up guys. I’m your man.


Rhodes: That’s great, just what I want to hear. But I just want to be clear with you, Jeremy. We have no intentions of taking the title off Aaron, and we’re booking this to make sure Wolf is still at the center of this match and title picture. Are you comfortable with all that?


Finch: Of course, I understand.


RDJ: Don’t get it wrong, though. This still a huge opportunity, bud. If you go out and blow the roof off the building with Aaron? You’ll be saving the day. Not just that, you might force Kyle to make you World Champion!


Ricky jokingly nudges Rhodes as the entire room laughs. Rhodes seems to laugh the least.


Rhodes: Well, one step at a time right now. So we got it all planned out for tonight. Want to explain it Brent?


Hill: Sure. So Rick here is going to go out and do his authority thing. He’s going to announce Wolf’s injury to the crowd, which is going to set up a confrontation with Wolf in the ring.


Hawkins: *sarcastic* Grrrrr, Rick doesn’t want me to be champion. I still want my title shot. Blah blah blah.


Hill: *chuckles* That about explains it. Rick will then announce a Battle Royal for the show tonight, the winner taking Wolf’s spot to challenge Aaron at Malice. That winner is, of course, Jeremy here.


Finch: Alright, sounds good to me.


Rhodes: Now, Wolf is going to be by your side the entire time. He’s going to be out there helping you during the Battle Royal, and he’s going to be by your side as we hype you this week and next.


RDJ: We’re going to blast you to the moon with what time we have!


Rhodes: Well, that’s the plan. Any issues?


The room becomes silent. As if a judge smacking his gavel, Rhodes claps loud and hard.


Rhodes: Alright guys, let’s make the best out of the situation. Let’s put on a hell of a show tonight.

Main Event: Doc Hammond wins a 20 Man Battle Royal to earn a title shot versus TCW World Heavyweight Champion Aaron Andrews at Malice in Wonderland


Co-Main Event: Aaron Andrews defeats Eddie Chandler (Non-Title)


Segment of The Week

Banged up from last week’s beatdown by Eddie Peak, Mighty Mo was not cleared to compete at Total Wrestling. Instead, he would be interviewed by Jason Azaria. Mo made it clear that it didn’t matter how much he was banged up, he was never going to back down from Peak and his Sinner Society.


Mo: You might have spent your career intimidating people with your size and menace, but you can’t intimidate me, Eddie! You knocked me down once, but I’m back up, and I’m coming for you! Ya hear me, Eddie? I’m coming for you!


All of a sudden, Eddie Peak appeared on the tron to interrupt the interview. Peak would actually compliment Mo’s resiliency, noting that most people would never dare get back up.


Peak: You’ve changing my mind, Mo. You want your one-on-one match with me so bad? You got it. But I promise you, Mo. You won’t be happy about your little match when I’m done with you. I’ll see you at Malice in Wonderland!


*Show Notes*

*During The TV Title Match between Greg Gauge & Benny Benson, Edd Stone was the guest commentator. During the match, Gauge would deliberately throw Benson into Stone’s lap, knocking both men over! Stone would eventually recover and interfere in the match, causing the DQ! Stone & Benson would argue in the ring, as Gauge fled from ringside with the TV Title in his grasp. Moments later backstage, Commissioner RDJ would inform Gauge he would now defend his TV Title against BOTH Benson & Stone in a Triple Threat at Malice in Wonderland!


*Frederique would make his TCW wrestling debut in the Battle Royal, and would duke it out with Joshua Taylor, whom he had a confrontation with the previous week. When Frederique appeared in trouble, Taylor would make one mistake, allowing Frederique to duck his head and back toss Taylor out of the ring!


*Wolf Hawkins would assist Doc Hammond during the entire Battle Royal, including both helping him stay in the ring and helping him eliminate competitors.


*Rivals Sammy Bach & Jay Chord would battle the entire time during the Battle Royal. It would cause their demise, as they never saw Hammond sneak up from behind and dump both men out. The double elimination would give Hammond the Battle Royal victory and the World Title shot.

January – Week 3 – 2020


Monday – Creative Meeting


Kyle Rhodes: Alright, so the Malice (in Wonderland) card is pretty much set, but have a little bit of work left. Unfortunately, we have to axe our six man tag match with the Shade Gang (Troy Tornado, Marc Speed, & Matt Hocking). The doc says Marc Speed needs at least a week off to heal up from his bicep injury.


The original plan was to have The Shade Gang battle their recent rivals, Danny Fonzarelli & Dazzling Dave Diamond. Fonz & Diamond’s tag partner would have been newly signed Frederique, setting up a big win for the colorful veteran.


RDJ: Speed got hurt? Did I miss that?


Joel Bryant: It happened over the weekend on the house shows.


RDJ: *shakes head* Those house shows ain’t being too kind recently.


Rhodes: We’re going to roll with it as a tag match instead, Shade Gang taking on Fonz & Diamond. I’d rather Fonz & Diamond team up a couple times before having this rival tag match, but I also want to have this rivalry on the pay-per-view.


Brent Hill: Not ideal, but I think the crowd will buy the reasoning.


In previous weeks, Marc Speed would help Troy Tornado defeat Danny Fonzarelli in singles competition before revealing their alliance. Two weeks later, when Dave Diamond competed against Marc Speed, Fonzarelli would be by Diamond’s side and would negate Tornado at ringside.


Little did Fonz & Diamond know that there was a third man to the alliance. Matt Hocking would appear out of the crowd and cost Diamond the match.


This week on Total Wrestling, the new trio was set to debut their stable name in an interview segment. Seeing that all three wrestlers liked to wear sunglasses frequently, the name came easy for Brent Hill, and Kyle Rhodes bought into it. The Shade Gang was officially born.


Rhodes: That leaves the Behemoths and the Tag Titles. I still think its way too early for One Man Army & (Human) Arsenal to get a Tag Title Match against them, but the champs need to do something for the pay-per-view. I need ideas.


RDJ: Well, we lost the six man tag. Why not we make another one?


Rhodes: I think I’m following. Paint the picture, Rick.


RDJ: Well, you got Army & Arsenal on one side and the Behemoths on the other side. Now the two teams just need their third wheel.


Bryant: We could put Nick Booth with the Behemoths and just make one team just the Sinner Society.


Hill: How ‘bout we combine two rivalries? We partner Joshua Taylor with the Behemoths, then book Frederique with Army & Arsenal.


Rhodes: I like it. It would be a nice boosting point for that rivalry. We put the faces over, setting up future matches in the rivalries. Boys, I think we got a winner.


RDJ: Put that sucker as the opening contest. That’ll cook things up real nice.


Hill: I can second that.


Rhodes: I guess it’s settled anything. Do we have anything else we want on the card for certain?


Hill: Let’s not forget (Davis) Wayne Newton on there. He should get a win on the big show.


Rhodes: Let’s do it, but no local talent this time. Get some indy fellow with some name value. Not too much though. Newton still has a way to go.


Hill: I’m on it.


RDJ: How’s the room feeling about the kid, anyway?


Bryant: In-ring, he is what we hoped he would be, at least as of now. He just has to eventually build character.


Hill: I think after Malice, we should start giving him wins over lower card talent. I think he’ll be ready by then.


Rhodes: We’ll discuss that later then. Alright folks, I think that is all we can do about the card for now. But I’m going to end this meeting with some great news. As you already know, we signed a contract with Canada 1-Choice to bring TCW to pay-per-view in Canada. That is huge, and our January profit is going to reap the rewards.


Bryant: Money makes the world go around.


RDJ: And we could always use a bit more of it!


Rhodes: *chuckles* Well, I’m happy you guys feel that way, because we’re also finalizing a deal to get TCW on Canadian Television as well. It looks like starting in February, Total Wrestling will be airing on the Maple Leaf Sports channel.


Hill: That’s great news. With that CWA merger, Canadian wrestling is dying for a little competition. Why not let it be us American boys down here?


Rhodes: That’s the hope! And we hope this will open more doors. We are talking to some Mexican channel companies, but that is a bit far off. But, we are also looking past our deal with ACE down the line. Who knows, we might be able to do better. Subscription based entertainment is becoming huge, and is something we might want to dip our toes in further in the future.


RDJ: Man, the days of just sitting down and turning on your television really is going away.


Hill: Do you even know what Hulu is, Rick?


RDJ: Brent, I couldn’t even tell you the name brand of my television.


Tuesday – Backstage At Total Wrestling


In the midst of talking to some talent, Ricky is approached by Thom Barrowman. Barrowman worked under the name One Man Army, but was previously known as Guide, a member of the classic team New Wave. He’s currently enjoying his first real singles push in TCW since joining the company thirteen years ago.


Barrowman: Hey Rick, you got a second to talk? In private?


RDJ: Of course, Thom. Anything for you, bud.


Ricky & Barrowman finds an empty corner in the back of the Lowe Ballroom. Ricky has an inkling of what Barrowman is about to say by just how serious he appears. Barrowman struggles to kick off the conversation.


RDJ: Everything okay, Thom?


Barrowman: Uhhh no, not really. Rick, I heard you were criticizing the decision to split up me and Jeremy (Scout). It really rubbed me the wrong way.


RDJ: Okay, Thom. Talk to me.


Barrowman: Okay. This was a mutual decision by all of us. Me, Scout, Kyle, everyone. We thought it was best. New Wave did all we could, and it was time to split and do what we could do as singles competitors. And to be blunt Rick, I didn’t appreciate you coming in and putting shade all over it.


RDJ: Thom, I can completely understand your point of view. Thom, how old are you?


Barrowman: I’m forty-two.


RDJ: That’s plenty younger than me, but you’re no spring chicken. My point was that the split would have been more effective if they did it when you were guys were younger. But, the company waited too long. New Wave is a classic tag team revered all over the planet. I thought after so many years, you guys should have been kept together till the end.


Barrowman: Rick, I get what you’re saying. But this is my chance to prove that I can be a singles star. But, you came back in and suggest that I go right back into a tag team, now with John (Anderson). I don’t appreciate it.


RDJ: First off Thom, I make no decisions. I am here merely to help you guys and give Kyle and Brent my honest opinion about the business, and that’s exactly what I did. And my opinion is that teaming you and John together would be something the tag team division needs. There is no top babyface team right now, and you guys would be perfect adversaries for the Behemoths.


Barrowman: Listen, I have no problem working with John, but I want to get back in the title picture. I was the last International Champion, and I should be in the title picture as a singles star.


RDJ: That’s great, and no one is saying this tag team is going to last awhile. Hell, it might not last more than a few months. It’s good for the story right now. But Thom, if you have that big of a problem, then you should talk to Kyle and Brent.


Barrowman: But you’re the one who put the idea in their head!


RDJ: Whether that’s true or not, I don’t make the final decision. Listen Thom, I’d be more than happy to be completely wrong about the split. I’d love to be the guy wrong and see you wearing the World Title a few months from now. If you want to take this personally, then I hate to hear it. But when I give my opinion, I give it on behalf of whatever is best for the guys and for the company. Alright?


The conversation goes in circles a bit more, before finally Ricky & Barrowman uncomfortably shake hands and depart. Ricky is left wondering who had told Thom about his opinion on the New Wave split. Ricky certainly wasn’t a chatty cathy. That only leaves a few people who knew of Ricky’s opinion.


Ricky knew it was likely John Anderson who told Barrowman of his opinion. But other than John? The only ones who could have told Thom…was the creative team….

Main Event: Sammy Bach & TCW World Heavyweight Champion defeated Jay Chord & Joshua Taylor


Co-Main Event: Doc Hammond defeated Flying Jimmy Foxx


Segment of The Week

Freddy Huggins is interviewed after a successful victory over Elliot Thomas. Kyle Rhodes interrogates Huggins over his brutal sneak attack on Tana The Mighty the previous week. Huggins had blindsided Tana with a chop block while the big guy was coming to the ring. Huggins proceeded to try to injure that knee, including bashing it with a steel chair.


Huggins is all smiles when Rhodes questions his integrity.


Huggins: Oh boo hoo, if that giant doofus just watched where he was going, then maybe he wouldn’t be at home right now licking his wounds! Let’s get something straight. Tana is an amazing specimen. It’s just a dang shame he has a peanut for a brain! Tana! You stuck your nose in my business, and now you paid the price! And if you ever dare to come back, I’m going to finish-…


Huggins’s jaw drops when “Dare” by Gorillaz begins to play. The crowd pops as an enraged Tana The Mighty appears through the curtains. He’s limping to the ring, but Tana is ready to do some damage! Huggins is in shock, and everyone was told Tana wasn’t at the show!


As Tana enters the ring, Huggins smartly bails and takes his exit through the crowd!


Unfortunately for Freddy, we would find out later that at Malice in Wonderland? RDJ has booked Huggins to face Tana The Mighty one-on-one!


*Show Notes*

*In the Main Event, Sammy Bach & Jay Chord were given the opportunity to choose their tag team partners, just days away from their singles encounter at Malice in Wonderland. Chord would choose Joshua Taylor, while Bach got the World Champion Aaron Andrews on his side. Bach would pin Taylor for the victory, right after Chord bailed on his partner after the going got tough!


*Also, turns out Bach & Andrews have zero tag team chemistry, so BOOOOOOOOOO.


*If you notice, it says Frederique announced his singles debut on the results. Well, that was scrapped! The PPV card was rearranged a bit due to an injury (Marc Speed), so Frederique’s singles debut will wait a bit longer.


*And if you’re wondering why I don’t have a Pre-Show…welp, that’s because I accidentally started the show before booking one. DOH!!!

Thanks for the kind words, folks. I hope to ride this story as far as I possibly can.


Next post will be a bit different. It'll be a classic, full analysis of the PPV Card, Malice in Wonderland. Hope you guys enjoy it.


Looking forward to Malice- this format works really well but it'll be nice to see a full in-depth look at what the roster can do.

Bart Biggins & Elliot Thomas defeated Maverick & Yuri Yoshihara


Flying Jimmy Foxx defeated Nick Booth


Jeremie Courtney & Roderick Remus defeated T-Bone Bright & Jack Avatar


The Main Card


Frederique, One Man Army, & Human Arsenal defeated Joshua Taylor & “TCW World Tag Team Champions” The Behemoths

Six Man Tag Team Action started off the first TCW pay-per-view of the year!


Taylor & Behemoths were able to cut the ring off on Human Arsenal and dominate much of the match, but they were unable to put Arsenal down and out. Finally, Frederique would get the hot tag and change the tide for his team.


When Taylor finally received the opportunity to finally face off with Frederique, Taylor backed off and hopped off the apron! Taylor just watched as Frederique hit Titan with the Romeo is Bleeding for the three count! Taylor would just watch as Frederique, OMA, & Arsenal linked up and raised their arms in victory.


Davis Wayne Newton defeated Paul Steadyfast

A brand new signing to TCW, Newton continued his undefeated streak by taking out Steadyfast, a twenty-six year veteran in the business. Steadyfast got in a few shots here and there, but this was the DWN-Show. Once again, Newton has his arm raised by the referee. Once again, Newton gets to strut arrogantly around the ring post-match. Once again, Newton proves that he is a hot commodity that the entire roster has to watch out for.



Greg Gauge defeated Benny Benson & Edd Stone to RETAIN The TCW Television Championship

Total non-stop action from three of the most talented wrestlers on the TCW roster. Whenever it seemed one was close to sealing victory, the third wheel would cause the breakup. Edd Stone would shock the live crowd with an amazing Top Rope DOUBLE Spanish Fly, but would be left stunned when he received a near fall when pinning both opponents!


Alas, Gauge proved once again that it is keen awareness that has kept the TV Title around his waist. When Benson attempted to pin Stone after hitting the Shockwave from Next Year, Gauge came flying off the top rope with a bone crunching Elbow Drop on top of both men. Gauge then enjoys the spoils and pin Stone for the 3!


Greg Gauge has now been TV Champion for 155 days, dating back to August 2019. This was Gauge’s 11th Successful Title Defense.


Freddy Huggins defeated Tana The Mighty

Yes, Huggins will definitely feel the effects of this match next morning, as Tana tossed Freddy all across the ring every chance he got. The chops Tana delivered to Huggins’s chest left Freddy bright red, and probably made his heart skip a beat, too.


That said, Huggins smartly attacked Tana’s injury knee every chance he had. That’s the same knee that Huggins attacked with a steel chair two weeks ago. After dodging the Big Fat Samoan Splash, Huggins would tumble the giant with a perfect chop block, then a precise dropkick. When Tana attempted to get up again, Huggins would roll up Tana, and managed to lock hands with his sister Laura Catherine for leverage! With Referee Francis Long out of place, Huggins got the three count before Tana could break free!


Huggins would quickly flee from ringside. As Tana was left seething in the ring, Huggins celebrated with his sister Laura Catherine in front of the curtains, a huge smile on his face.


Mighty Mo & Eddie Peak Battled To A Double Disqualification

This match got out of hand early, quickly becoming just a flat out brawl. Referee Ray Johnson could have counted these men out numerous times as they battered each other at ringside. The mayhem just never ceased, and it finally boiled over when BOTH men shoved down Ray Johnson! The referee had no choice but to disqualify both men!


With the match over, the rest of the Sinner Society hit the ring to help ambush Mo. But, it didn’t take long for One Man Army & Human Arsenal to race out and make the save. OMA & Arsenal brawled into the crowd with the Behemoths & Nick Booth, leaving Mo & Peak all alone once again!


With Mo hurt from the ambush, Peak stripped clean the announce table at ringside! Peak attempted to put Mo through the table with the Peak of Perfection, but Mo broke free! When Peak spun around to face Mo, he got clocked by Mo, armed with the ring bell! With Peak stunned, Mo showed his amazing strength by lifting Peak into the air and POWERBOMBING HIM THROUGH THE TABLE!


With the crowd roaring, Mo stood over the motionless Peak triumphantly. Mighty Mo certainly didn’t win the match, but he might just have won the war!


The Elite defeated Devine Fortune

No matter how impressive both teams looked in this match, the story will be about The Syndicate’s enforcer, Chris Flynn. With Referee Francis Long distracted by Eddie Chandler & Darryl Devine’s brawl outside the ring, Flynn would interfere in the match. With Nate Johnson down in the ring, Chance Fortune attempted to climb to the top rope. But before he could, Flynn climbed onto the apron and dug his fingers deep into Fortune’s eyes! Blinded, Fortune would crash hard to the mat!


The Elite would take full advantage. After sending Devine hard into the steel steps, Chandler joined Johnson in the ring to hit Fortune with the Elitism! 1-2-3, The Elite picks up a big win for the Syndicate!


Jay Chord defeated Sammy Bach

A battle of two of the biggest stars in TCW, both of them just one step away from the top of the mountain. They clearly knew this, because both men brought the fight like their careers depended on it! Chord blamed Bach for not being the one challenging Aaron Andrews in the main event. Meanwhile, Bach was out for revenge for the vicious attack by Chord weeks prior. Yes, it was personal now for these two, but both men knew that a big victory could lead them to a future World Title shot.


Unfortunately, Chord had to stoop to dirty tactics to get the victory. Chord survived the Bach on your Back, scratching and clawing to the bottom rope for the clean break. Bach set Chord up for the Adrenaline Shot, but Chord would dodge the maneuver and dropkick Bach in the back, sending Bach right into Referee Ray Johnson! It wasn’t the worst referee collision ever seen, though. Johnson got up pretty quick, but not quick enough to see Chord deliver a low blow to Bach! Chord would then hit Bach with the Cradle Piledriver and receive the 3 count!


Who knows if Commissioner RDJ will consider that victory worthy of a future World Title Match. Nevertheless, Jay Chord picks up the big win in this heated rivalry.


Danny Fonzarelli & Dazzling Dave Diamond defeated The Shade Gang (Troy Tornado & Matt Hocking) by Disqualification

Fonz & Diamond were separate targets of this newly formed trio of Tornado, Hocking, & Speed. Or, as we now known them as, The Shade Gang! Little did the Shade Gang know, Fonz & Diamond would not just roll over in defeat. Instead, Fonz & Diamond united to battle the trio!


Despite repeated outside interference from Marc Speed, Fonz & Diamond would survive the Shade Gang onslaught and make a late rally. Fonz would set up Hocking for the Retro Rocket, only for Speed to sneak into the ring and smack Fonz across the back with a steel chair! Referee Francis Long had no choice but to Disqualify The Shade Gang!


When Speed went to use the steel chair again on Fonz, Diamond would come up behind Speed and snatch away the weapon! Speed spun around to Diamond, only to get struck right in the ribs with the steel chair! Diamond attempted to hit Hocking with the chair as well, but Troy Tornado would pull out his ally just in time. The battle line drawn, the two teams tossed threats back and forth as Fonz & Diamond were declared the victors. Clearly, we are just seeing the start of this feud!




Aaron Andrews defeated Doc Hammond to RETAIN The TCW World Heavyweight Championship

His broken forearm in a cast, Syndicate leader Wolf Hawkins would accompany stable mate Doc Hammond to the ring. Throughout the match, Hawkins would interfere at every opportunity possible to make sure that the World Title ended up in the Syndicate camp.


Unfortunately for Wolf, he would finally get caught Referee Ray Johnson. Thinking he was in the clear, Johnson would catch Hawkins standing over Andrews after smashing him into the ring post! Johnson didn’t actually see the action take place, so instead of calling for a DQ, Johnson did the next best thing. Johnson threw Hawkins out of the arena!


It was now a one-on-one match! No more Syndicate interference!


Hammond would attempt to take advantage of Hawkins’s assistance, realizing that this was the biggest opportunity of his career. But no matter what Doc did, Andrews would always get his shoulder, and always get to the ropes.


The champ would not say die, and he would rally back with the crowd red hot behind him. Andrews would hit Hammond with the Standing Hot Shot, but instead of going for the pinfall, Andrews headed to the top rope. As Hammonds staggered to his feet, Andrews took flight. Andrews hits his patented Flying Body Press! 1-2-3! The champ retains on P-P-V!


Aaron Andrews has now been TCW World Heavyweight Champion for 176 days. He has been champion since July 2019. This is Andrews’s 3rd reign as World Champion. This was the 5th successful title defense of Andrew’s current reign.


After climbing each corner with the big gold raised high, Andrews would circle ringside to high five the fans that adore the champ. As the show starts to come to a close, Andrews took his exit towards the curtains. Andrews went to pose with the title belt, but stopped when Doc Hammond attempted to approach him. Not caring that the match is over, Hammond tried to charge Andrews, but he was held back by several TCW referees! Hammond and Andrews started to exchange words when-




It was just a distraction by Hammond! From the curtains appeared Wolf Hawkins, who came up behind Andrews and clocked him across the head with his forearm cast! The champ is face down and OUT…COLD!


Hawkins clutched his broken forearm, wincing in pain from his own strike. Overcoming the pain, Wolf snatched the World Title off the ground. With Hammond now holding back those TCW referees, Hawkins stood over Andrews and let him knew how he really felt.


“You’re nothing, Aaron! You hear me?!

I’m the face of TCW! You're a nobody!”


Finally, help came from backstage to help Andrews. Hawkins doesn’t struggle or argue, he merely backed away, but not before tossing the World Title down beside Andrews.


"We’ll see you later, champ!”


Malice in Wonderland came to a close as TCW medics attempted to rouse Andrews awake. Just before the show goes black, Andrews is helped to a seated position. By the look on his face, the World Champ was clearly several planets away.

February – Week 1 – 2020


Monday – Creative Meeting


After discussing the current Tag Title and TV Title picture, it was time to deliberate the main event for the next Pay-Per-View, The War To Settle The Score. Wolf Hawkins’s injury had caused the company’s main storyline to take a detour, and it was time to get back on track.


Kyle Rhodes: So, it’s pretty much settled. We’re going to ride the Andrews/Hawkins feud all the way to Total Mayhem, the big finale taking place there. But now we need to start planning how we’re going to get there. First things first, The War To Settle The Score. What do we do?


Brent Hill: Well, it’s got to be Round 1 here. Andrews vs Hawkins, World Title.


Joel Bryant: Seems logical, yeah.


RDJ: *groans* I don’t know. You got something here that you can cook.


Rhodes: Meaning?


RDJ: Well…look at what you just did at Malice (in Wonderland). Andrews and Scout…err…Hammond…whatever…put on a great, intense match. Then, you follow up with the champ getting set up by Wolf. Great angle by the way, Brent. You built a beautiful one there, bud.


Hill: Thank you, sir.


RDJ: So Andrews has heat with not just with Hawkins, but Hammond now, too. Why don’t we use that for the next P-P-V?


Rhodes: A Tag Team Match?


RDJ: *nods* The Syndicate on one side. And to stir things up, Andrews gets his partner of choice, which can be its own little story there.


Hill: How about this as well? You, Mr. Commish, revokes Hawkins’s title shot because of his “despicable” attack on Andrews. But, if The Syndicate wins the tag match? Hawkins gets his title shot back.


Rhodes: I like it, folks. You guys just put together something that might be on a par with a World Title match.


RDJ: We do this right, then it’s just going to be that much special when we hit the fans with Andrews & Hawkins, one on one. I guarantee it.


Rhodes: This match just needs a gimmick. A standard tag just won’t do.


Bryant: How about we put them in a steel cage?


Rhodes: *shakes head* Nah, I think I want to hold onto the steel cage. I could see Andrews & Hawkins one-on-one in a cage at some point in the few months.


Hill: I say we go with the Street Fight. It’s special, but we can always raise the stakes later.


RDJ: Street Fight, yeah. The arena can be their playpen. Let’s the boys create their own magic.


Hill: And it’s cheaper than a Steel Cage!


Rhodes: *chuckles* Alright, I think we got ourselves a main event almost. We got one piece left. Who is going to be Aaron’s partner?


RDJ: Well, to me, Sammy Bach would be the obvious choice.


Rhodes: It’s not a bad idea, but if we’re not going to do Andrews-Hawkins at the next P-P-V, I almost certainly want the Bach-Chord rematch. That’ll be our big singles match.


Bryant: Are we going with the trilogy with Bach-Chord?


Rhodes: That’s the hope, but we must keep Chord strong no matter what. I want Chord in the title scene as soon as the feud is over. It’s just about time for him.


RDJ: Alright, then. So if not Sammy, who do we have to be Aaron’s partner?


Hill: Well guys, hang with me here. I think I got an idea….


Tuesday – Total Wrestling


We are just moments away from this week’s main event on Total Wrestling. Jason Azaria, Kyle Rhodes, & Mitch Naess are in the process of hyping the Fatal Four Way. The winner will challenge Aaron Andrews for the TCW World Heavyweight Championship…in two weeks…right here on Total Wrestling!


But before they can go further, the announcers are interrupted by “Ballroom Blitz” by Sweet, the music of Benny & The Foxx. It is in fact Benny Benson who walks out into the arena in street clothes. With a microphone in hand, Benson steps onto the interview stage.


Benson: I know we are about to enjoy tonight’s main event, and I don’t want to take up too much time. But I’d like to ask our Commissioner, Ricky Dale Johnson, to come out here. I got something I need to ask him.


After a long moment, Ricky appears from the curtains. Not knowing he was even coming out into the arena that very moment, Ricky had forgotten his cowboy hat backstage, though his fine suit still looks crisp. Ricky joins Benson on the interview stage, his own mic in hand.


RDJ: We could have done this backstage, but oh well. Let’s do it in front of this lovely, live crowd. Well Benny, how can I help ya, bud?


Benson: Rick, you know this ordeal between me and Greg Gauge has been brewing for awhile now. I have come…soooo…close, so close to taking that TV Title away from him. I should have beat him one on one, but his stupid antics with Edd Stone got me DQ’ed. Then at Malice in Wonderland? I had that match won! Not only did Gauge steal that win, but I was never pinned!


RDJ: Well Benny, I get all that. I see where you’re coming from. But here’s the truth, no matter how you might paint it. You had your chances to win the TV Title, and you didn’t get it done. Greg Gauge is the champ, and you’re not.


Benson paces back and forth before answering.


Benson: You’re right, Rick! You’re absolutely right! But here’s the thing. I know, without a shadow of a doubt that I can beat Gauge for that title! All I need is one more chance!


RDJ: Benny, you had your chances. You have to understand my point of view. There is a locker room full of guys hungry for their chance. There’s a long line of guys waiting for their chance at the TV Champion. So, why should I put that on hold to give you yet another opportunity?


Benson: Please Rick…I’m begging ya, man. I just need one more chance. That’s all I’m asking for.


Hands on hips, Ricky turns away from Benson towards the live crowd. The fans are behind the beloved Benny Benson. They want to see Benson get another chance, and Ricky recognizes that.


Ricky turns back to Benson and holds up his index finger.


RDJ: One more chance, that’s all you get, Benny. And that’s what you’re getting, a CHANCE! Next week, you will team up with your buddy Jimmy The Foxx. Benny & The Foxx! You will compete against the TV Champion Greg Gauge and a partner of his choosing. If you win your tag team match next week, you will get your title shot!


Benson pumps his fists in celebration. The live crowd rejoices as well, too.


Benson: Thank you, Rick. That’s all I wanted man, that’s all-...


RDJ: I’m not done, Benny. You need to hear me loud and clear. Whether you win next week or not, this is your…last…chance! If you fail to win the TV Title this time, that is it! You will never receive another TV Title shot as long as Greg Gauge wears that title belt!


Please Enjoy A Brand New Episode Of

TCW Presents Total Wrestling!




Main Event: Sammy Bach defeated Jay Chord, One Man Army, & “TCW Television Champion” Greg Gauge in a Fatal Four Way Match. Bach earns the right to challenge Aaron Andrews for the TCW World Heavyweight Title in 2 Weeks on Total Wrestling!


Co-Main Event: Frederique defeated Joshua Taylor


*Show Notes*

*Rather than having to face off with Tana The Mighty again, Freddy Huggins bailed on his tag team partner Maverick and took a walk on the opening contest. It certainly didn’t end well for Maverick, who took a Big Fat Samoan Splash as a result.


*Unlike Malice in Wonderland, Syndicate enforcer Chris Flynn was caught red-handed interfering on behalf of Eddie Chandler during his match with Edd Stone. Referee Francis Long disqualified Chandler, though that didn’t stop the 3-on-1 beatdown on Stone by Flynn & The Elite. Luckily for Stone, Devine Fortune would hit the ring for the save, clearly wanting revenge for their tainted lost at Malice in Wonderland!


*Joshua Taylor was impressive in his match against Frederique, and controlled a great deal of the contest. But all it took was one mistake for Taylor. As both men duked it out at ringside, Taylor would charge a groggy Frederique. Frederique would side step the charge at the last second, and Taylor would go face first into the ring pole! Frederique dragged himself back into the ring, beating Referee Ray Johnson’s ten count for the win!


Livid by his loss, Taylor attacked Frederique immediately after the match. Like an animal, an enraged Taylor would beat away on Frederique until he was pried away by TCW officials. What a poor act of sportsmanship!

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">Monday – Creative Meeting</span></span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Kyle Rhodes:</strong> A fractured cheek bone? Ouch. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Brent Hill:</strong> Yeah, but it sounds worse than it is. We’ll only miss Davis (Wayne Newton) just a few weeks. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Joel Bryant:</strong> A shame, though. We’re only getting his name out to the fans, and this happens. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Any heat between him and Elliot (Thomas) over the injury?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bryant:</strong> *shakes head* Nah, it was an unfortunate collision when Elliot executed his cross body block. His elbow or forearm just caught Davis real good.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> If it’s okay with you, Kyle, I’d like to bring in another new wrestler to try out while we wait for Davis to return.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Ah, I bet you’re talking about Masked Cougar. Aren’t you?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> I am.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> I knew it. I know you really like this kid, Brent. I’m just not so sure Cougar would mix well with our product.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> What is he? A luchador?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> He has luchador aspects to his style, but the reason I like him is that he can adapt to whatever style he needs to. That’s why I like him so much. A ton of experience both on this continent and in Japan. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> But what can he do for us?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> Well, you said we need new babyfaces. Fresh babyfaces. Cougar is 100%, white meat babyface. If he hits, we’ll have a whole bunch of kids wearing his cougar mask.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> *to RDJ & Bryant* What do you guys think?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bryant:</strong> I’ve seen him work before. He’s not really my style, granted I’ve never been a big luchador, masked high flier fan. But if Brent here thinks he can deliver something special, I think he’s worth a shot. Brent’s definitely right about the babyface aspect. The kid is easily beloved. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Well, it seems like we’re discounting this kid because he’s different than the rest of the roster. But, that is just what might make him an interesting addition. By the way Brent paints it, the kids might love him. And if the kids love him, then the parents have to dish out cash for merchandise. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Alright Brent, you win. Bring Cougar him, let’s see how the fans react to him. If he hits, I’ll give you a cut of his merchandise sales.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> *big smile* I’ll hold you to that!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Alright, I wanted to end this week’s meeting with a little financial update. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> You’re going to put me to sleep, bud. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> *chuckles* It’s good news, I swear. I told you guys that January was looking good with our brand new Pay-Per-View deal with Canada. Well, it was in fact a financial success. We saw a big bump in money in the first month of the year.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bryant:</strong> I guess we should say thanks to Canada.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> The North definitely did us a favor. Now, we’re not going overboard with this additional cash flow, but we are already starting to put it to good use here and there. We’re raising the Production Values to our televised shows, so it might look a little better in the next few weeks.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> That was it? The Production? I thought my old eyes were just rejuvenated!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> We’re also making some updates to the facilities over at School of Pro Wrestling. I’m also looking talking to the merchandise department to see if we can invest on newer ventures over there. More product, better quality of product. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> As long as they keep on making those RDJ foam cowboy hats.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Hey, don’t joke! I bought ten of them myself. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Lastly, the biggest news of all. We’re expecting finances to be even better with our new TV deal in Canada. That’s why I’ve begun talking to television networks about potentially putting a second show on TV.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bryant:</strong> Whoa! Are we bringing back Saturday Night Showcase?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> I’m afraid not. I’m talking about more of a single hour, B-show. Some place to develop new talent, give lower card guys some wins, and further stories when needed. It wouldn’t be a gold mine, but I’m thinking more about investing in our future. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Hot damn, I hope to see it. Any investment in the future is almost always the best move.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> That’s the hope. When a decision is made or I know more, I’ll let you guys know. That’s it for this week, I’ll see you guys at the tapings.</p><p> </p><p>

<em>As Ricky is in process of leaving, he notices that the BriCo executives have approached Kyle Rhodes. While Ricky cannot hear what they’re talking about, he can tell that Kyle is a bit annoyed by the topic. The rubbing of the forehead and temple is a good giveaway.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Usually, these BriCo executives merely sit in on the meetings, take notes for their own boss(es), and that’s about it. This was the first time, though, that Ricky had seen them take a legit interest in something that occurred in the meeting. Whatever it was, Ricky didn’t think Kyle was in the process of being well praised.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

On the way out of BriCo headquarters, Ricky sees that Brent Hill hasn’t left just yet. He hurries his pace to catch up with his long time friend.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Hey Brent, got a minute?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> Sure Rick. Want to get some lunch?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Ehhh, sorry. I got a date with the boss lady to get ready for. I just had something to ask you, if that’s alright.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> Sure, no problem.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Well…I don’t mean to be rude…but you still are the Head Booker, right?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> Ummm…yeah? Why do you ask?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Well, it’s just that before I left the company, Kyle was never this hands on with booking. He was just all about the business outside the ring. Ya know, finances and promotion and stuff. I didn’t realize when I was coming back that we would all be having meetings like this all the time.</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Brent Hill looks a little uncomfortable, and makes sure that the conversation is private before speaking.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> Kyle means no harm, but yes, he’s had a more hands on approach in the last year. He pretty much wants to be involved in everything.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Does that bother you? Him taking charging of the roster and booking?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> *shrugs* Not really. I have no desire for a power struggle, Rick. I’m just like you, I guess. I just want to do what’s best for this company. Besides, Kyle always shows respect to my opinion, and always wants to hear it. And my paycheck is the same, so who cares? </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> That’s good to hear. But why do you think he changed things up?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Brent Hill hesitates to answer.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Is it BriCo?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> I…I think so. I think they’re pressuring him to see more success. I think they expected more from TCW since the purchase.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> You think they want to move on?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill</strong> *shakes head* I don’t think so, but I’m certainly not in the inner circle when it comes to BriCO. I just think they thought we’d be competing with SWF & USPW again by now.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Hmmm, if that’s the case, no wonder Kyle wants to bring my old rear off the couch.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> Hey…just keep this talk between us, alright? Kyle already has enough on his plate. We just need to be there to help him and the company.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Of course, Brent. You have my word.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> Oh yeah, and you might want to take it easy when you criticize the New Wave split. It rubs Kyle the wrong way.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> *chuckles* So, it was his idea.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> *nods* And he expected something bigger from it. I mean, it’s been fine, but nothing special like he thought it might be. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Alright, Brent. I’ll watch what I say. Besides, the New Wave boys got word of what I said and aren’t happy with me. They took it as some pretty heavy criticism.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> Don’t make a big deal about it. Us wrestlers can be very moody people. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> *laughs* Ain’t that the truth!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="color:#FF0000;">Tuesday – Total Wrestling</span></span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>Earlier in the show, Aaron Andrews had approached Commissioner Ricky Dale Johnson backstage and informed the Commish that he was cleared to compete by TCW medical. Andrews was stern in his desire.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Andrews:</strong> I want a fight tonight, and I want it with The Syndicate!</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Ricky would oblige Aaron’s wishes. Andrews was booked in a Non-Title Match later that night against The Syndicate’s Nate Johnson! </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

After a back and forth contest, the TCW World Champion was about to put Nate Johnson for the win. But, as Andrews headed to the top rope for his signature Body Press, the rest of the Syndicate hit the ring! Chris Flynn would shove Andrews off the top rope, sending him hard to the mat. The Syndicate would then circle around the fallen champion and kick away at him. They only stopped so they could pick him up, allowing Doc Hammond to punish Andrews with a powerful lariat! </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

As this all goes on, Wolf Hawkins stands at ringside. His forearm still in cast, the Syndicate leader smiles on as his boys do his bidding, and do it well.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Wait a minute! The crowd erupts as “Breathe” by Fabulous hits the PA! Mighty Mo comes rushing out to the ring, knocking over Wolf Hawkins in the process! Mo slides into the ring and goes on an absolute rampage. Mo fends off the Syndicate long enough for Andrews to recover, and then the duo together clears the ring of Aaron’s assailants! </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Hawkins calls a retreat for his stable, his sinister plans wrecked by Mighty Mo! As the Syndicate start to head for the curtains, Aaron Andrews calls for a microphone.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Andrews:</strong> Hey Wolf! Wolf! Before you leave, I just have one question to ask.</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Andrews turns away from The Syndicate and goes face to face with Mighty Mo.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Andrews:</strong> Hey Mo! How does a Street Fight sound to you?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>As Andrews holds the mic towards Mo, the Mighty One smiles ear to ear. Mo glares at Wolf Hawkins as he responds.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Mo:</strong> Sounds like fun!</p><p> </p><p>

<em>There you have it! It appears that Aaron Andrews has found a tag team partner for his Street Fight against The Syndicate at The War To Settle The Score. That partner is Mighty Mo!</em></p><p> </p><p>

*Benny Benson is successful in his last chance to earn a title shot against TV Champion Greg Gauge. Benny & The Foxx defeat TV Champ Gauge and his handpicked partner, The Shade Gang’s Troy Tornado. Gauge is left to watch his partner Tornado get pinned by Benson, and now knows he will have to deal with Benny one more time!</span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

*After Tana The Mighty’s win over Nick Booth, Freddy Huggins would approach the ring. Huggins wanted to call a truce, desiring no more ill towards Tana. Huggins was looking for forgiveness! Tana wasn’t buying it at all, and he was right! From behind, a facepaint-less Maverick would come out of the crowd and sneak attack Tana! It appears Maverick has aligned himself with Huggins! </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

Tana would fend off the sneak attack pretty fast, but the distraction would allow Freddy Huggins to once again chop block Tana’s injured knee! Huggins and Maverick would proceed to attack that knee until TCW officials finally got them out of the ring! With Tana down, Maverick would raise Huggins’s arm, as if Freddy just won a championship match! Huggins, of course, was all smiles!</span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

Hawkins will demand to know when he will receive his World Title shot, which he won in a contender’s match back in January. Unfortunately, the scheduled match never took place because Hawkins legitimately broke his forearm. But, Hawkins had just been cleared medically this week.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> You think you deserve a title shot after the stunt you pulled at Malice in Wonderland? Wolf, you tried to put Aaron Andrews on the shelf! You should be suspended! As far as I’m concerned, you don’t have a World Title shot! But I tell you what, if you and Doc here win your Street Fight at The War To Settle The Score? Your title shot match with Aaron Andrews is back on! If you guys lose, then you go to the back of the line!</p><p> </p><p>

<em>But that was all in a few moments. Currently, Ricky was backstage with his old Sam Keith. Like Ricky, Keith had become more invested in the company recently, and was now a Road Agent at all televised events. He was also the promoter down in MAW, a development promotion for TCW. Part of Keith’s reasoning to go back on the road was because of his son, Greg Gauge, was rapidly rising up the TCW ranks.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Ricky & Sam Keith went back a long way. They had many battles back in the day, many of those battles being the reason why TCW became such a huge promotion, and probably why TCW was able to stay open in present day. While Ricky might be considered the heart of TCW, Keith helped the company plenty as well. Keith was a part of the original Syndicate stable, which Ricky considered vastly better than the current group.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

All of sudden, their reminiscing is put on hold because of a commotion in the locker room. Though neither man has a clue of what’s happening, the commotion is plenty loud that they can tell where it’s coming from. It’s near the curtains, and it doesn’t sound like anything the company had planned for the show.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Ricky & Keith join the several bodies rushing towards the commotion. Right before the curtains, a tussle has broken out. John “Human Arsenal” Anderson is on top of Killer Shark and is holding him there. An impressive move, holding down a 400+ plus man, but that just proves how great of an amateur wrestler Anderson was (and still is). Still wearing his Human Arsenal mask, Anderson has Shark tight in a headlock. Despite throwing punches to Anderson’s body, Shark can’t manage to break free.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>John Anderson:</strong> You dumb son of a *****! You nearly broke my ****** neck!</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Ricky has no idea what John’s screaming about, but he assumes it had something to do with their match this evening, which apparently just finished up. Ricky doesn’t care about details, though, and quickly joins the group of men trying to break the fight apart. The tag partners, Thom “One Man Army” Barrowman & Fred “Titan” Head are also there, trying to talk sense into their buddies. Eventually, Anderson’s grip is broken and both men are pulled apart.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Sam Keith:</strong> Get John out of here, Rick! I’ll take care of Shark!</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Both Ricky & Thom Barrowman block Anderson as they direct him towards the locker room area, just in case John decides to go after Killer Shark again. When they finally get into the locker room, he allows Anderson to cool off a moment.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Jesus Thom, what did I miss?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Barrowman:</strong> You didn’t see the match?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Nah, sorry. I was getting ready for my segment coming up.</p><p> </p><p>

<em>A total lie, Ricky was just too busy talking about the old days. Thom didn’t need to know that, though.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Barrowman:</strong> Well, John nearly got his neck broken by Shark. That’s what happened. Shark messed up a basic slam. We’re lucky John is standing right now.</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Anderson tears off his Human Arsenal mask and throws it across the room. Still red hot, John Anderson jumps right into the conversation and barks at Ricky.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Anderson:</strong> He’s a damn champion in this company, and he can’t even slam people right! What the hell, Rick? I’ve been wrestling here almost fifteen years. That boy is about as green as it gets!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> I know, I know. Shark has a great look, that’s why Kyle (Rhodes) likes him so much.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Anderson:</strong> I don’t care what Kyle likes! The ape nearly dropped me on my head!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Barrowman:</strong> *to RDJ* After that, it was on. Lots of stiff shots under the match was over.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Anderson:</strong> He’s lucky I didn’t break his teeth!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Alright, listen, please try to calm down. I’m going to talk to Shark, going go talk to Kyle, and we’ll figure things out, alright? I’m sorry this happened, John. Please, try to calm down, and go to medical when you’re ready. Alright?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Anderson:</strong> Yeah yeah yeah….</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Anderson slumps down in a chair and pours a bottle of water over his head.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> *to Barrowman* Can you watch him for now?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Barrowman:</strong> *shrugs* I guess I have to.</p><p> </p><p>

<em>As Ricky exits the locker room, Sam Keith is heading his way from down the hall.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Keith:</strong> I was just coming to find out how John is doing. Is he ok?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Yeah, I think. He’s pissed over a botched slam by Shark. He needs time to cool off. I was going to go talk to Shark and Kyle now.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Keith:</strong> Well, Kyle is talking to Show right now. He saw the botch and isn’t happy. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> How pissed?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Keith:</strong> Well…he’s “this is not the first time” pissed. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> *cringes* Not good. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Keith:</strong> Nope. Thom & John might want to get ready for a Tag Title run.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Wow, really? Why do you say that? I thought the team was just temporary? </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Keith:</strong> *shrugs* Call it a hunch….. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="color:#FF0000;">Later in the Main Event</span></span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>The fans are split in the main event, as fan favorites Aaron Andrews & Sammy Bach battle over the TCW World Heavyweight Championship. The majority are behind Andrews most of the match. But,when Bach begins to rally in the match, the Sammy chants seem to grow louder and louder. </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

It’s late in the match, and Bach is trying to put Andrews away. He can almost taste his first reign as TCW World Champion, twelve years in the making! After Andrews barely kicked out of the Adrenaline Shot, Bach climbs to the top rope. He executes a beautiful Moonsault, but Andrews rolls out of the way! Bach manages to land on his feet, but comes up limping! Andrews sees this, and immediately trips Bach and locks the hurt leg in a Single Leg Crab. Bach is in complete agony, but manages to drag himself to the bottom rope! Andrews uses the five count, and Bach rolls out of the ring after the break.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Seeing that Bach might be badly hurt, Referee Ray Johnson climbs out of the ring to check if Sammy can continue. When this happens, Jay Chord hits the ring! Chord hits Andrews with his Cradle Piledriver, leaving the champion out cold, right in the middle of the ring! Chord disappears as quickly as he appeared! Ray Johnson re-enters the ring, having no clue what happened!</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

With Andrews still out cold, Bach drags himself back into the ring. Bach is confused over what happened. Here comes Chord, marching back down to the ring. He’s barking at his rival Bach to pin Andrews! Announcer Jason Azaria manages to put together what’s happening.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Azaria:</strong> I get it now! Bach & Chord have their rematch at The War To Settle The Score! Chord wants Bach to win so he can challenge Sammy for the World Title in that match!</p><p> </p><p>

<em>It looks like Sammy is putting it together himself, and he begins shaking his head in disgust. Bach limps to the edge of the ring and points at Chord.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bach:</strong> I don’t need your help! Get out of here! I <strong>don’t</strong> want <strong>your</strong> help!</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Chord insults Bach’s intelligence as Sammy decides what to do. Bach refuses to pin Andrews in his current condition. He doesn’t want to win in tainted fashion. Instead, Bach decides to drag Andrews up in an attempt to give the champ a fighting chance. </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Andrews pulls Bach down into a Small Package! That injured leg is locked tightly! 1-2-3! Andrews retains the World Title!</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

“Feel Invincible” by Skillet begins to play as Andrews is awarded his championship gold. Both Andrews & Bach sit on the mat, exhausted over their encounter. Bach sits with hands on his knees, stunned over what just occurred. Jay Chord, meanwhile, is having a fit outside the ring.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Chord:</strong> You idiot! You’re an idiot, Sammy!</p><p> </p><p>

<em>As Total Wrestling comes to a close, Andrews climbs the corner. He holds his title belt up for all to see, but especially Jay Chord. Andrews & Chord exchange some words before the scene goes black. We’re appear to be getting a hint of what the future might hold for both these men….and TCW!</em></p><p> </p><p>

</span><span style="color:#006400;"><strong>*Show Notes*</strong></span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

*After creating a successful ambush on Tana The Mighty last week, Freddy Huggins is interviewed this week by Jason Azaria on the interview stage. Huggins is all smiles as he taunts the injured Tana, but then announces the creation of </span><span style="color:#006400;"><strong>Freddy Corp!</strong></span><span style="color:#006400;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

</span><span style="color:#006400;"><strong>Huggins:</strong></span><span style="color:#006400;"> Freddy Corp. is the institution that is going to take your boy Freddy all the way to the TCW World Title!</span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

Huggins introduces his sister, Laura Catherine, as the company manager of Freddy Corp. Makes sense…she is Freddy’s manager, anyway. Huggins then introduces his own personal coach, the man who will train him to become TCW World Champion. Out comes Maverick, now going by his real name, Julian Watson! No more face paint, Watson comes out with a clipboard and whistle, and begins to clap and encourage Huggins during his interview.</span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

</span><span style="color:#006400;"><strong>Huggins:</strong></span><span style="color:#006400;"> I am the new face of TCW, and not even an overgrown loser like Tana The Mighty is going to stop me from going straight to the top!</span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

<p></p><div style="text-align:center;"><p> <span style="font-size:24px;"><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">February – Week 4 – 2020</span></strong></span></p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">Monday – Creative Meeting</span></span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Kyle Rhodes:</strong> So to start this meeting, some good news. We are going global for Sunday’s Pay-Per-View. The War To Settle The Score will be seen all across the planet. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Brent Hill:</strong> Whoa! Great news!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Yeah, nice surprise, Kyle. How did you pull this off so fast? You going to stand up on top of the arena with a pair of bunny ears?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> *chuckles* It’s called the internet, Rick. Ever hear of it?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Ehhhhh, once or twice.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Well Rick, this is what we’re talking about here. Listen, before I get ahead of myself, this isn’t groundbreaking. This is getting our feet wet. This is a small step towards getting TCW seen around the world. If we’re going to compete with SWF and USPW, we need the entire world to see us.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Joel Bryant:</strong> The more eyes, the better.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Exactly! But, this isn’t going to be like our National deals in the US and Canada. Those are our big money makers. We hope to make a nice buck with this new broadcasting deal, but it’s about exposure. Fans across the world will be able to purchase The War To Settle The Score on the internet and watch it live. The quality will not be as good as our National deals, but if this project succeeds, then that will improve overtime.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> I’m guessing the endgame is to propel us to National deals in new regions when we get enough exposure.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Ding! You are correct, sir. The little amount of money we are investing now will hopefully make huge dividends with time and patience. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> That’s great news, but what about Total Wrestling? If we’re offering up P-P-Vs for the entire planet, then we gotta do it for TV shows, too.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> You must be psychic, Rick, because that is exactly where I’m heading. Starting in March, Total Wrestling and other TCW televised product will also be available outside the US and Canada. If they join TCW.com, then they can watch our TV shows. Again, just like our Pay-Per-View. Starting small, hoping to grow big. So this week on Total Wrestling, we’re going to promote the crap out of these internet deals. We’ll probably have to send you out there, Rick, to explain this to the live the crowd.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Gee, great. Just make sure I have a script so it looks like I know what the hell I’m talking about. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bryant:</strong> I know you’re trying to downplay this, Kyle, but this is big news. I’m no tech guy by any means, but even I know that if you don’t use the internet to your advantage, you’re stuck in the past. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Boy, do I know about being stuck in the past. Thank god I’m paying someone to be in charge of my Twitter account.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> I will keep you guys updated as things move forward. Just remember, it is a long game. We’re not expecting results right away, but the hope is this takes the company to a whole different venture. Not only could this mean big broadcasting deals, but I’m almost thinking global tours. Again though, long game. Any questions?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Crickets chirp in the room. The 40-50 year old men have zero desire to discuss internet technology, something they know very little about.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Good! My first big focus today is the Television Title. We’re finishing up the feud between Gauge and Benson this Sunday. We all know Gauge is our midcard guy right now, and Benny has already done his job. He has helped make Gauge look like a prominent champion. I like Greg’s future, but I don’t think he’s ready just yet to join the main event. Now, we have to figure out what’s next for the TV Title picture. We’ve talked about it before, but now we need a decision. Thoughts?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> Well, unfortunately, our recent issue arises. We need more concrete babyface challengers for Greg. We kind of swept through them. I guess we could go back to Edd Stone. They only had a single one-on-one match together over the title.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bryant:</strong> Yeah, but that feels like we’re treading water with Greg as champion. We need something to take him to the next level. Something that makes people think of Greg for years when they compare him to future TV champions.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> Took the words right out of my mouth, Joel. Frederique is a fun option, but I was actually going to suggest a tag team for Fred.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Really? Where is this coming from?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> House shows. When Dave Diamond was off one show, we had his partner (Danny) Fonzarelli tag with Fred. It was fire. The crowd loved their chemistry.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Might be a little awkward to toss Diamond aside and slide in Frederique. I mean, they are babyfaces.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> *shrugs* True, but Fonz and Diamond haven’t been teaming long. I don’t think the crowd has hooked on defiantly, either.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> How do the guys feel about it?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> Oh, Fonz and Fred know. Those guys have been around long enough to know chemistry when they feel it.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bryant:</strong> Now that I think about it, their colorful gimmicks could make for some fun segments. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> *thinks about it* Alright, I’m interested, but let’s shelf that idea for now and get back on topic. Who else could we throw at Greg?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> Well…again, the cabinet is getting kind of empty. Unless we push a guy to the moon out of nowhere, I don’t think we have a babyface right now that would be fire against Greg.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Welp, you know what means. Time to turn a bad guy!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Alright, now we’re talking. Who do you have in mind, Rick?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Well, there is an easy one that jumps out to me. I would absolutely love to see Gauge square dance with Joshua Taylor and see what magic comes out of that.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:/</strong> Hmmm, I’m not so sure the crowd is ready for Josh to turn back good guy.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> You might be right, Brent. But in my honest opinion, he is a better face than heel. I think his in-ring work alone will get the crowd behind him again. That, and Greg is such a good heel.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bryant:</strong> Yeah, you’re not turning Greg face anytime soon!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Nor would I want to. The boy sure reminds me of his Dad sometimes. So paint the picture, Rick. How do you see it coming?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Not much painting needed. The story tells itself when you just look at it. The young lion is hungry for bigger challenges. On the other side is this adult lion, still in his prime, not ready to be passed up by the young-un.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> You sure that would be enough?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> In my opinion, yes. Start there, and then let their wrestling paint the rest. I mean, Greg & Josh are two of the best ring generals we got here. They’re going to steal shows, I got a feeling.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> *nods repeatedly* You’re winning me over, Rick. Any other options we can think of?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> We could always give Tana a run with Greg.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bryant:</strong> Yeah, but can Tana keep up with Greg?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> You’re scaring me, Joel, how much we’re thinking alike. Tana is still good for a fun story, but the title picture? I think fans will expect better quality wrestling.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bryant:</strong> I’d say (Freddy) Huggins, but that kid is just too dang good of a heel. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> For sure. Plus, I think I might want to start teasing Freddy as a World Title contender, just to see how fans react. I think we got something with this Freddy Corp.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Freddy sure is good at being a douchebag.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> And he and Julian (Watson) have some fun magic. I love the coach idea for Julian. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> How do we feel about T-Bone? Any chance there, you think?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Hill:</strong> I like the kid, but he’s still got that green showing. I think he needs a feud or two first to sell him to the fans.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> I think T-Bone can definitely be someone if we find him the right tag team partner. Now we just have to find him the right partner!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Rhodes:</strong> Okay, this was good. Let’s have this discussion settle in our stomachs and we’ll come back to it. Now, let’s move onto Sunday. We need to finalize the P-P-V card….</p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="color:#FF0000;">Tuesday – Total Wrestling</span></span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>Ricky stands alone on the interview stage inside the Shakeshaft Auditorium. Microphone in hand, cowboy hat on head. </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Ricky just finished his spiel about TCW’s brand spanking new internet deal to broadcast the company all over the world. If he sounded like a robot, that’s because he was reading a long script right off a monitor. As far as Ricky could recall, the last time he needed a monitor? Ricky was in his young thirties, acting in a commercial to promote TCW. That was many years and many beers ago.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> That’s enough business mumbo jumbo for tonight. I want to talk some actual wrestling! How about it folks? I got the rest of the card for The War To Settle The Score, you want to hear it?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>RDJ turns to the crowd, who pops for him. They want to know! RDJ proceeds to summarize the current card, with proper graphics showing up on the tron and on television.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Now, let’s get to the new stuff! For this Sunday, I have been informed by TCW medical that Tana The Mighty has been cleared to compete. Tana has requested a rematch with Freddy Huggins, and he will get it! But…just to make sure that Freddy’s little Freddy Corp. doesn’t stir up more controversy, we’re going to stir things up first! Tana & Freddy will compete this time…in a <strong>Lumberjack Match!</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jason Azaria:</strong> Wow, there will be nowhere for Freddy Huggins to run this Sunday!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Kyle Rhodes:</strong> That may be true, but something tells me Freddy Corp. will figure out some way to get involved.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> How about another match? No no no, not just another match. How about a Team Team Fatal Four Way? You like that?!</p><p> </p><p>

<em>The live crowd likes that!</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Four of TCW’s best teams will compete, one fall to the finish. The tag team that gets the fall will receive a TCW World Tag Team Championship Match in two weeks, right here on Total Wrestling! And those four tag teams are The Elite, Devine For-…</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Before Ricky can go any further, he is interrupted by the sound of Three Days Grace’s “Animal I Have Become.” Cue the boos, Joshua Taylor walks out into the arena with a big ol’ scowl on his face. He is not a happy camper tonight! Taylor walks uninvited onto the interview stage and goes face to face with the Commissioner.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Sure, go ahead and interrupt me, Josh. Got something on your mind?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Ricky holds the mic out towards Taylor, allowing him to talk.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Taylor:</strong> First off, I don’t give a crap about your stupid little tag team match. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Yes, that’s pretty obvious. But if you-…</p><p> </p><p>

<em>Taylor grabs Ricky by the wrist and pulls the mic back towards himself.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Taylor:</strong> I want to know when I get my rematch with Frederique after that little stunt he pulled last week. That loser got lucky when we first met, and I’m not letting that stand! So how about it, Rick? When’s my rematch?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Well Josh, patience is a virtue. Let’s see, Frederique beat you, no matter how you color it. You had a temper tantrum and attacked Fred after the match. You mocked Frederique, leading him to attack you back. And hey! So what do you say, boys and gals? Do you want the rematch?</p><p> </p><p>

<em>The crowd wants the rematch! Taylor again pulls the mic back towards himself.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Taylor:</strong> I don’t care what they want! Just give me my rematch!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>RDJ:</strong> Well, Josh, if you just waited a damn minute, then you wouldn’t have needed to come out here looking like a baby with a dirty diaper! Because guess what? My next match announcement was this! At The War To The Settle The Score, it will be Frederique once more competing against….<strong>SURPRISE!</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<em>Ricky slams the mic into Taylor’s chest, then points at him with double finger guns. Proud of himself, the TCW Commissioner exits to “Shoot The Thrill” by AC/DC. Taylor is forced to watch Ricky strut off, Joshua’s scowl growing even larger.</em></p><p> </p><p>

</span><span style="color:#006400;"><strong>*Show Notes*</strong></span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

*During the Co-Main Event contest of Wolf Hawkins Vs One Man Army, OMA would get a very unwelcomed surprise. OMA had Hawkins reeling, and looked primed to make the big upset against the former World Champion. Just then, a ruckus was heard over the PA System. All the attention turned towards the tron, including OMA’s, as it showed Human Arsenal being ambushed backstage by Tag Team Champions The Behemoths & Nick Booth. </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

The distraction did the trick, as it allowed Hawkins to recover and hit Full Moon Rising. 1-2-3, Hawkins gets the big W heading into The War To Settle The Score.</span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

As soon as OMA recovered from his loss, he would make his way to the backstage to save his ally. Courageously, OMA would confront the Sinner Society all on his own backstage in an attempt to rescue Human Arsenal. But in the end, both OMA & Arsenal were left battered on the floor by the Sinner Society, just days before the big Tag Title match at The War To Settle The Score! </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

*Once again, The Shade Gang would use the numbers game to their advantage, and they would redeem themselves in a tag rematch against Danny Fonzarelli & Dazzling Dave Diamond. This time, Shade Gang would be represented by Marc Speed & Matt Hocking, but the third man Troy Tornado would nevertheless get involved. His distraction allowed Speed to lock the Deadly Heel Hook upon Diamond. With Fonzarelli busy with Hocking at ringside, Diamond was forced to tap and take the loss. </span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;">

<p></p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><em>Just a quick heads up, you might notice my matches got significantly better ratings this show. I didn’t cheat!...not really, I don’t think. </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Ya see, I became frustrated with my match ratings, outside my top players. I’ve become frustrated enough so that I finally turned on the Dirt Sheet to see what I was missing. I don’t usually do that because I like to figure out the problem by myself, wrestler by wrestler. But seeing that this was a brand new game and my frustrations, I submitted and clicked on the Dirt Sheet. I just had to know what I was doing wrong.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Welp, every single wrestler in every single match was being penalized for the “ban on high risk maneuvers.” I went to the Products page and yup, “Hisk Risk Ban” was clicked on for TCW! So, I made my first alteration to TCW’s product, and clicked that sucker off.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

</em><em><strong>TA-DAH!</strong></em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

With this show, my match ratings overall saw a vast improvement with that High Risk Ban gone. I’m talking a ten point improvement for some guys’ matches here. My boys are free to fly and leap all over the place. </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Best of all, on the first card without the ban? Only one guy got hurt, Chris Flynn for 2 days with a strained bicep! </em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

So yeah, my little story is over now. Now onto the fun.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

Without further to do….</em></p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#006400;"><strong>Joshua Taylor defeated Frederique</strong></span></p><p>

A much anticipated rematch starts off the PPV. Frederique won the first encounter, barely beating the referee’s ten count to get a ten count out win.</p><p> </p><p>

This time, it was the Joshua Taylor Show. Taylor was clearly determined to prove that he was the better wrestler. The forty-four year old Frederique tried his best to keep up with one of the best wrestlers in the game, but Taylor was just too much. In the end, Frederique would be forced to tap to the Butterfly Lock.</p><p> </p><p>

Post-Match, Frederique was adamant to shake Taylor’s hand. Taylor wanted none of it at first, but Frederique wouldn’t let him leave the ring. Reluctantly, Taylor would shake the hand quick before leaping out of the ring.</p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#006400;"><strong>Masked Cougar defeated Roderick Remus</strong></span></p><p>

Cougar has tasted success since debuting in TCW back in early February. But, it was now time to for the masked marvel to compete against TCW talent, and it was Remus stepping up to the challenge. </p><p> </p><p>

It wouldn’t be as easy as it was previously for Cougar, but the masked marvel once again was impressive. When Cougar got rolling late, it was only a matter of time. Cougar Pounce! Boom! 1-2-3, Cougar gets the big PPV win! </p><p> </p><p>

The entire roster is now on notice because of this hot, brand new talent! He is Masked Cougar, Here Him ROAR!</p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#006400;"><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Tag Team Fatal Four Way Match</span></strong></span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">

Winner Receives A TCW World Tag Team Championship Match</span></strong></span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"><strong>

The Shade Gang (Marc Speed & Matt Hocking) defeated Devine Fortune, Danny Fonzarelli & Dazzling Dave Diamond, & The Elite</strong></span></p><p>

First fall to the finish, the winning tag team receives a Tag Team Titles in two weeks on Total Wrestling!</p><p> </p><p>

Referee Francis Long tried to keep order in this match early on, keeping track of the legal combatants. But as we all would expect, mayhem would eventually ensue, and bodies would begin to fly all over the place. Eventually, all eight men would be lying at ringside after a Darryl Devine Rope Flip Plancha!</p><p> </p><p>

Of course, a shock to no one! The third member of Shade Gang, Troy Tornado, would get himself involved. But this time he paid the price, as Danny Fonzarelli got a hold of Tornado and planted him with the Retro Rocket! Fonzarelli made a huge mistake then…he attempted to pin Tornado, forgetting that Troy wasn’t actually IN the match!</p><p> </p><p>

Marc Speed would take full advantage. As Fonzarelli argued with the referee over the attempted pinfall, Speed dragged Danny right off of Tornado and locked on the Deadly Heel Kick! Big boy or not, Fonzarelli was stuck in the middle of the ring and in agony! He was forced to tap, giving the match and tag team title shot to their rivals, The Shade Gang!</p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#006400;"><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Lumberjack Match</span></strong></span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"><strong>

Tana The Mighty defeated Freddy Huggins</strong></span></p><p>

For most of the match, the TCW wrestlers surrounding the ring did in fact negate the presence of Freddy Corp. Huggins was forced to compete with Tana one on one, and the results were not good for Freddy!</p><p> </p><p>

Eventually, Freddy Corp’s Laura Catherine Huggins and “Coach” Julian Watson would be able to help Freddy change the tide, with Watson catching Tana with a chop block on the big guy’s previously injured knee. Freddy, though, couldn’t put away Tana still.</p><p> </p><p>

Watson’s second attempt to get involved faltered big time. Desperate to help Freddy, Watson leaped off the top rope for a Double Axe Handle, but would receive a giant chop to the chest by Tana! </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Jason Azaria:</strong> My god! That chop sounded like a gun being shot off!</p><p> </p><p>

Freddy was left alone with Tana, and that meant trouble. Tana would connect with another giant chop, this time to Freddy’s cranium. With Freddy down and out, Tana hit the Big Fat Samoan Splash for the win! Tana got his redemption, and then proceeded to dance and celebrate with the fans! </p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#006400;"><strong>Chris Flynn defeated Edd Stone</strong></span></p><p>

A match weeks in the making, Stone was out for revenge after Flynn interfered in his match with Nate Johnson. With Stone on the top rope, ready to put away Johnson, Flynn would dig his fingers into Edd’s eyes, sending him crashing hard to the mat.</p><p> </p><p>

Earlier this week, Stone & Devine Fortune defeated Flynn & The Elite in Six Man Action. Now, it was time to battle one-on-one!</p><p> </p><p>

Unfortunately for Stone, Flynn would do it again. After dodging the Party’s Over, Flynn would rake the eyes again! With Referee Francis Long out of place to see, Flynn took advantage of a blinded Stone and slapped on the Flynn Lock! Stone had no choice to tap, scoring one for the Syndicate’s Enforcer! </p><p> </p><p>

Dog Collar Match</span></strong></span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"><strong>

One Man Army & Human Arsenal defeated The Behemoths to become the NEW TCW World Tag Team Champions</strong></span></p><p>

It didn’t take long for this to become a bloody mess between these four warriors. This wasn’t a tag team wrestling match by any means. This was just a gruesome brawl. Punch in face, choke with dog chain, repeated!</p><p> </p><p>

Sinner Society’s manager Floyd Goldworthy would interfere, costing One Man Army his opportunity to put Titan away by hitting OMA with a low blow. A surprise to everyone, the Swedish Beauty Vita would hit the ring and SPEAR Goldworthy right out of his shoes! Whoa!</p><p> </p><p>

With Goldworthy out of commotion, and Nick Booth knocked out with a steel chair earlier in the match, it was now down to just the two teams. The Behemoths attempted to put OMA down with a Double Powerbomb, but Human Arsenal would save his partner with his own spear to Titan, just as he had OMA up in the air! Boom!</p><p> </p><p>

With Shark all alone, OMA and Arsenal would tee off on the four hundred pounder with their own personal chair shot, then drive Shark’s head into the chairs with a Double DDT! 1-2-3, we got new Tag Team Champions!</p><p> </p><p>

As the crowd celebrates to the sound of “BYOB” by System of a Down, it is Vita taking the Tag Team Titles from Referee Ray Johnson. She hands the titles to both OMA and Arsenal, then raises both their hands! Apparently, we have a new power trio in TCW! </p><p> </p><p>

<em>The Behemoth’s 3rd Tag Team Title reign comes to an end after 7 successful title defenses. They won the titles back in July 2019 by defeating Benny & The Foxx.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p><em>

This is One Man Army & Human Arsenal’s 1st Tag Team Title reign together. OMA becomes a 6-time TCW Tag Team Champion, the first five with Scout (New Wave). Human Arsenal becomes a 4-time TCW Tag Team Champion. He had previously been champion twice with Brent Hill, and once with Rick Law.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#006400;"><strong>Sammy Bach defeated Jay Chord</strong></span></p><p>

Match of the Night!</p><p> </p><p>

Bach was out for revenge after his loss to Chord at Malice in a Wonderland, a loss that included a low blow by Chord. This rematch was immediately desired by the fans afterwards, and it has been brewing the entire month.</p><p> </p><p>

Jay Chord was on his A-game tonight, that’s for sure. He proved why many people believe he is the next World Champion in waiting. Bach just didn’t seem to have any answers for Chord tonight. But that became a problem, as Chord’s dominance began to inflate his arrogance.</p><p> </p><p>

Chord would hit Bach with the Cradle Piledriver, but would lift Bach off the mat before Referee Ray Johnson’s three count! That just wasn’t good enough for Chord! With a cocky grin on his face, Chord dragged a limp Bach up for a second Piledriver. He attempted the Piledriver, but Bach struggled and flip right over Chord! Bach with the Roll Up! 1-2-3! </p><p> </p><p>

The crowd erupts in cheers as Bach catches Chord with the flash pinfall! Chord is arguing with Ray Johnson as Bach sits on the floor at ringside with a huge smile on his face. As Bach stumbles his way from ringside, he looks back to see Chord still pouting in the ring. He shakes his finger at Chord, still with that huge smile.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Bach:</strong> You still have a lot to learn, Junior!</p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#006400;"><strong>Davis Wayne Newton defeated T-Bone Bright</strong></span></p><p>

Newton is back in action after suffering a Fractured Cheek Bone earlier this month. His face showed no signs of the injury, and his performance showed absolutely no rust from the short absence.</p><p> </p><p>

T-Bone would get a couple good shots in that left Newton reeling. But all it took was one big mistake, a missed charge into the corner, which spelled the end for T-Bone. Newton tripped a staggered T-Bone to the mat, locked on the STF, and that was all she wrote. Newton remains undefeated in TCW, as he continues to check off his list, wrestler by wrestler!</p><p> </p><p>

2 Out Of 3 Falls Match</span></strong></span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"><strong>

Greg Gauge defeated Benny Benson to RETAIN the TCW Television Championship</strong></span></p><p>

It was obvious Benson knew this was his last chance to win the TV Title from Gauge, because he came out of the corner red hot! Gauge had no real answers for Benson early, and it lead to Benny hitting the Shockwave From Next Year to pick up the first fall! Perhaps Benny regretted challenging Gauge to 2 out of 3 Falls! He would be TV Champion right now!</p><p> </p><p>

It looked like Gauge was recovering at ringside, but it was all a ploy to catch Benson with his guard down. Gauge would snap-to quickly and send Benson face first off the steel post! The second fall would be all about Gauge, and Greg would eventually force Benson to tap to the Proton Lock. </p><p> </p><p>

Gauge would immediately lock on the Proton Lock at the start of the third fall, but Benson would not submit! He would not give up his last chance at the TV Title! Benson scratched and clawed to the bottom rope. Calling for the end, Gauge would call for his new finisher, the Broken Gauge! Gauge went for it, but Benson reversed it into a stunning Tornado DDT!</p><p> </p><p>

A rally for Benson, the crowd is fully behind as he had Gauge on his heels. Benson called for the Shockwave From Next Year, but that’s when his attention is averted. A young, red haired woman had jumped out of the crowd, and she attempted to get in the ring! Too much to drink perhaps? Referee Ray Johnson managed to get the young woman out of the ring, but the damage had been done. </p><p> </p><p>

When Benson returned his attention back to Gauge, Greg lifted Benny up and dropped him throat first on the top rope with the hot shot. Gauge lifted a staggered Benson up into the air, and drove him into the mat with the Broken Gauge! 1-2-3, it’s over! Gauge’s TV Title Reign continues, and Benson can never challenge him again as long as Greg’s champion!</p><p> </p><p>

Benson just sat in the middle of the ring as Gauge exited the arena to the sound of “Icky Thump” by The White Stripes. Completely distraught, Benny couldn’t believe how close he came to winning, yet he let it all slip away.</p><p> </p><p>

<em>With this win, Greg Gauge’s 1st TV Title reign reaches 183 days. His reign began back in August 2019 by defeating Doc Hammond. This was Gauge’s 13th successful title defense.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<span style="color:#006400;"><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">THE MAIN EVENT</span></strong></span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">

Street Fight Tag Team Match</span></strong></span></p><p><span style="color:#006400;"><strong>

The Syndicate (Wolf Hawkins & Doc Hammond) defeated TCW World Heavyweight Champion Aaron Andrews & Mighty Mo</strong></span></p><p>

The ring certainly couldn’t contain this war, as it didn’t take long for the four competitors to battle into the crowd and eventually into the backstage area. The production crew had their hands full on this one! </p><p> </p><p>

And yes, to the surprise of no one, the rest of the Syndicate would eventually get involved. The Elite & Chris Flynn would attack Aaron Andrews & Mighty Mo when the battle would spill to the backstage area. But perhaps that wasn’t the place to get involved, because it allowed Edd Stone & Devine Fortune to also get involved and take The Elite & Flynn out of the equation! Stone & Devine Fortune has had their issues with The Syndicate recently, and they got a taste of revenge here!</p><p> </p><p>

Gradually, the match would make its way back to the arena. Battling Andrews at ringside, Hammond would knock the World Champion out on top of the announce table with the ring bell, then proceed to drag out a ladder from the ring. Hammond began to climb up the ladder, but Andrews recovered quicker than he hoped and climbed up after Doc. Andrews lifted Hammond up onto his shoulders, then fell backwards, putting Doc through the announcer table with a SUPER Samoan Drop! WHOA!</p><p> </p><p>

Inside the ring, Mighty Mo dodged the Full Moon Rising by Wolf Hawkins. Hawkins spun around and walked right into Mo’s finisher, the Plunging Spinebuster! It’s over! 1-2-3NO! Hawkins just barely got his shoulder up! Mo couldn’t believe it!</p><p> </p><p>

Mo climbed out of the ring, and the crowd erupted as the Mighty One began to pull out a table and slid it into the ring. Mo set up the table and waited. Mo stalked Hawkins as stumbled to his feet. </p><p> </p><p>


What is going on?! </p><p> </p><p>

Finally, the lights returned…</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>IT’S EDDIE PEAK! EDDIE PEAK IS IN THE RING!</strong></p><p> </p><p>

We haven’t seen Peak since Mo put him through a table at Malice in Wonderland, and Hardcore Assassin now has Mo by the throat! My god, Peak puts through Mo straight through the table with the Peak of Perfection! </p><p> </p><p>

A calming look in his face, Peak just stood in the ring and watched as Wolf Hawkins crawled into the cover on Mo! Referee Ray Johnson had no choice but to count, 1-2-3! The Syndicate win, thanks to the returning Eddie Peak!</p><p> </p><p>

His work done, Peak took his exit without ever looking back. Aaron Andrews finally recovered at ringside to realize what had occurred. The rest of the Syndicate show up to help Doc Hammond and Wolf Hawkins to their feet. </p><p> </p><p>

Aaron Andrews had no choice but to watch Hawkins, Chris Flynn by Wolf’s side to hold him up. Wolf is all smiles, knowing that he has regained his title match against Andrews. Hawkins even mocked Andrews, gesturing to his waist.</p><p> </p><p>

The War To Settle The Score finally came to a close, as Andrews kneeled over Mo and the broken table. Mo finally started to come to, clearly stunned over what had just occurred. </p></div><p></p><p></p>
