AlaskanHero Posted May 20, 2006 Share Posted May 20, 2006 (Ok, my last Diary sorta died, that was my fault and I apologize. Now I'm gonna try and do a diary again, this time using a Hybrid promotion. The lack of angles will hopefully allow me to clarify the storylines between my workers and even go into the backgrounds of the various matches taking place. I'll also try a new format, fiddle around with how I do stuff, etc. But enough rambling. BDM Industries Presents: Eternal Japan Pro Wrestling) [QUOTE][center][b][u]The Wrestling Voyeur[/u][/b] [b]Return of a Juggernaut?[/b] [i]by Charles Quintzer[/i][/center] Puro fans will be getting quite a treat come this December as former Japanese Promotion, Eternal Japan Pro Wrestling will be starting back up after several years of inactivity. Several names have already been revealed to be a part of the company. One of my sources within the company has told me that several of these names are not only well known within Japan, but "are famous worldwide". For those unfamilier with EJPW, it was originally formed by Japanese wrestling legend, Crimson Musashi after he retired from in-ring competion. It did extraordinarily well, able to compete with both Burning Hammer and Golden Canvas at their peak. However, the company stopped running after the Japanese Wrestle Peace Festival. The reasons for this are still unknown to this day.[/QUOTE] It all started with a phone call. After my stint with Destiny Championship Wrestling, my name had become very well-known within the wrestling community and my stock as a booker was through the roof. I was on FIRE, BABY~! But then Marshall Grant (owner of DCW) decided to close down the company for reasons that still aren't quite clear to me. He sold his channel, the Wrestling Network, to a group of mimes and faded into obscurity. The guy was weird like that. So, I found myself at home, without a job, though not really looking for one. I did mention how I was on FIRE~! right? I made an assload of cash and could live the good life until...well, let's just say that I'll still have money to burn even after I'm dead from old age. **** what the people say, I'm taking the money with me! Anyways, I was at home, without a job, watching some old DCW tapes, marvelling over how good my booking was (I have an ego, what can I say?), when my phone started to ring. This wasn't new since my phone had been ringing off the hook ever since DCW closed down a month or so ago. Promotions ranging from the mighty SWF to the lowly MAW to micro-indies that nobody had ever really heard of were all offering me the sun and the moon for my services. Being the businessman I was, I entertained all of them, weighing my options. I would be lying if I said I didn't want to immediately accept SWF's offer. I was always a fan of SWF and would have loved to be a part of the company, but I resisted the urge and waited for more offers. Anyways, back to the phone. I picked it up and was surprised to hear Marshall on the other end! Grant:"Hey Brandon, got an offer for ya!" Franchise:"Whoa, whoa, whoa! First off, where the hell have you been? Nobody's seen or heard from you since you closed DCW! People are worried, y'know?" Grant:"Ha ha ha! Oh, I should've expected that. I left because I fulfilled the last thing I wanted to do before I retired and left the wrestling industry. Thanks to you, I saw my baby rise to heights I could never imagine! Hell, for a while there, we were more popular than the SWF!" Franchise:"True, true. Well, I guess that answers that, so what's this offer for me?" Grant:"Well, you know Crimson Musashi and his promotion Eternal Japan Pro Wrestling right?" Anyone who read the dirt-sheets or was an insider in the industry knew about Crimson Musashi and his promotion. Personally, I was never much of a fan of Japanese wrestling. Yeah, it was good, but I could never really get into it. I think it was because I couldn't understand the announcers. Franchise:"Yeah, I know about it." Grant:"Well, I was talking to Crimson and when he told me that he was still looking for a Head Booker, I suggested you. He seems open to the idea." I had to admit, my ego took a small bit of battering when I heard this. I mean, didn't Crimson Musashi know who I was? I was The F'ing Franchise for goodness sakes! I was getting offers that would get me more money per day than some people on the roster would get the entire year. Hell, promotions the world over were tripping over themselves to get ME, The Franchise! The way it sounded Crimson could've cared less about me. Grant:"Honestly, I had to convince him to even consider you. He was originally planning on giving the book to one of his announcers, Minoru Hikari I believe, and...well, let's just say Crimson can be rather stubborn. When I suggested you, his first words were, and I quote: 'That kid barely even has hair on his ballsack and you want him to book my company? No way, my friend'." Ouch. My ego had just taken a vicious uppercut and was nearly KO'ed. Was I going to go out like Frazier, though? Oh hell no. Franchise:"Give me the address to EJPW Headquaters and tell Crimson I'll meet him there, tomorrow." It was time to head to Tokyo. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
