jksander Posted January 2, 2005 Share Posted January 2, 2005 My name is Jonathan Sanders, but I'm going to become a superstar in the wrestling world as Johnny Darko. This is the story of my rise to the top of the industry. Enjoy! (Special thanks go to PyroFalkon, for the Johnny Darko image that is now my avatar!) [b][u]June 2005[/u][/b]: Week 1 [b][i]MONDAY[/i][/b]: I talked to my agent this morning, and he got me on the phone with two majors! Ring of Fire's owner, Geordie Jimmy, has offered me six months at $24 per appearance, as an upper midcarder babyface for his federation! Meanwhile, my manager talked me up with the head of the United States Pro Wrestling Federation, who have agreed to let me try out at their next show! My audition will be TOMORROW, on USPW Breakdown! while I won't wrestle for ROF on "Bad Obsession" until next Thursday. [b][i]TUESDAY[/i][/b]: Tonight I drew a matchup against Eric The Bull as the first match on USPW Breakdown … and I'll tell you, entering that backstage area, I was as nervous as it gets. So I did what I do best, turned on the charm, flirting with Emma Chase, who seemed to handle my advances … I'm sure she knew what I was up to. Nothing serious, just breaking the ice with someone non-threatening. Anyway, back to the match, and I quickly found myself FAR out of my league. I spent most of the bout trying just to avoid real punishment, while hoping to draw at least SOME attention from the guys upstairs. Then late in the match, some of my bigger moves started hitting! A few solid moves killed his energy, and we both were in the same boat! And suddenly, after nine minutes, I hit him with the Biggz Up! and he went down! 1 … 2 … 3 … AND I SHOCKED EVERYONE by winning my first ever match! Think that'll get me a full time job? Well, maybe not … it wasn't clean, and I got a "D" rating. But a win's a win! [b][i]WEDNESDAY[/i][/b]: I was shocked to hear that Eric The Bull chatted me up to the bookers after the fight, and they requested an immediate meeting with me! Turns out they think I'd make an exciting opener, and Danny Jillefski, owner of USPW, offered me a "Pay Per Appearance" contract, worth $40 per appearance for a year! How could I turn an offer like that down? [b][i]FRIDAY[/i][/b]: Got a call today, my agent said that 21st Century Wrestling, a leader in the UK in the wrestling world, wanted to meet with me! But they weren't offering me what other BETTER feds were: just $20 per appearance on a 6 month PPA contract. I asked for a better pay deal, but they weren't interested in talking, so I thanked them but declined. Meanwhile, I met with Danny Jillefski from USPW, and he wants me to be an opener Heel. But guess who they want me to tag with? Damned straight! I'm now a member of "Dark Bulls", the tag team of myself and Eric the Bull, who was impressed by my comeback win so much that HE asked for the teaming! I wonder who we'll end up fighting when we debut … [b][i]SUNDAY[/i][/b]: I spoke today with Cliff Anderson, owner of Combat Zone! And though they offered me the same 6 month $20 per appearance deal that I got from 21st Century, I think CZCW has a lot to offer me as a third monthly match. I keep wishing I'd hear from either Burning Hammer or DAVE, as those are two of the best promotions to be a part of if you want to climb the ranks. But that could be a long way off. [b][u]June 2005[/b][/u]: Week 2 [b][i]THURSDAY[/i][/b]: Tonight, I debuted on Ring of Fire's "Bad Obsession" against Alpha Female! While the prospect of taking on a 34-year-old middleweight female heel, I guess you don't get to be choosy at this level. So I figured might as well be friendly. I met up with her backstage, and we both agreed after a few minutes that we should be able to put on a good match. She gave me a few pointers on my in-ring psychology, and then we had to head out into the ring … it took me twelve grueling minutes, as she seemed to block every move I made, to finally stun her long enough for the three count … but I DID manage to remain undefeated, while picking up my first ROF win! This time my match drew a C+ rating, so I was pleased in the end. [b][i]FRIDAY[/i][/b]: I don't have any appearances scheduled until next month, so I contacted a Japanese fed, World Level Wrestling, because they have a weekly event called "WLW Rest In Peace". I told them I'd be interested in appearing on their show every time I'm not under contract to appear on CZCW's monthly show, and they agreed to at least give me a tryout on Monday (no pay of course). Will I get my third straight win and another job? You'll have to wait and see! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
