Now with 50 approaching on the horizon, have the years of bloody wild brawls caught up to the desperado? Despite a progressively worsening hip injury, Murdoch is set to take The League by storm and remind the next generation why his name carries the reputation it does.

Bio:  "Wrestling is my Religion" - The creed of the hulking brawler and self-styled leader of "The First Church of Wrestling' Christian Priest. Standing at 6'6 and weighing north of 340lbs, Priest combines stiff strikes, clubbing blows and raw power with old school fundamentals to devastating effect. Methodical and borderline sadistic, Priest eagerly inflicts pain in the name of his "Crusade" – an arbitrary war against his opponents for their supposed crimes against professional wrestling. 

Manager Bio:  If Priest is the figurehead of The First Church, then Pastor Richards is undisputedly the (not so) silent workhorse behind it. Evangelist in nature, Richard's firebrand rhetoric both inflames opposition and inspires new believers to his cause. Preaching “by means necessary" seemingly nothing is off limits, nor any depths too low for the Pastor to stoop, to secure victory for the Church.

She relies on her speed to compensate for the lack of upper body strength, and has worked a little more technical skills into her arsenal than many may remember. Will it be those skills that lead her to glory?

Health [Actual (Projected)]:  Head: 96.8 (96.2), Body: 100 (100), Arms: 100 (100), Legs: 99.91 (99.91)

Bio:  Her nickname is “The Ringmaster of the Carnival of Violence”, and wow does she ever live up to it. She’s only a professional wrestler in the most technical sense of the term, as she wouldn’t know a wrist lock if it bit her on the ass. Whoever gets in the ring with Kichi Hida ought to know what to expect. Punches. Kicks. Headbutts. Elbows. And her trademark knee strikes. She might jump off something high, too. She’s a gloriously violent psychopath, and we love her for it.

Where he excels in technical grappling, she thrives on simply pummeling her opponents to the point of unconsciousness. With Molina's ascent to the Alpha Division, she accepted his offer to be in his corner to play a foil to the likes of Tony Mortis and Cecile Corine.

Bio:  As a teen, north London's Michael Steele was a promising kickboxer with Olympic aspirations. But the world of competitive martial arts proved too serious for his liking and he was drawn to the showiness and drama of professional wrestling instead. At the age of eighteen he moved to Canada to train with ned Haddock and began taking indie bookings. He got off to a rough start, but soon found that the more he leaned into his character work, the more success he achieved in the ring. Now, in his persona as a dashing 1970's British detective, and along with his trusted sidekick and "Girl Friday" Roxy Rose, he's come to The League to put himself to the ultimate test.

Manager Bio:  Roxanne Lawrence is a Toronto-based actress and model who does part-time work as a valet for local indie-shows. Her partnership with Mickie Steele has proved particularly successful and she's begun to accompany him on tours.

Bio:  Montgomery "Monty" Dhillon is the wrestling persona of Abbotsford, B.C. native Mohanbir Dhillon. A gentle and courteous man by nature, in the ring he becomes a vicious and hardened bully, subtly affecting the mannerisms of a Victorian-era thug. Or not so subtly if the situation calls for it. His primary assets are size and strength, while his weaknesses include inexperience and poor conditioning. He relies on high-impact strikes and throws to overwhelm smaller and speedier opponents and keep them off-balance, before closing the deal with his devastating Empire Bomb finisher.

Health [Actual (Projected)]:  Head: 91.93 (91.41), Body: 100 (100), Arms: 100 (100), Legs: 100 (100)

Bio:  Nuclear Templeton was an original member of The League, and someone who always seemed to be second best to someone. In many ways it fuelled him to be better, but one he he vanished.  Some thought his days of working as a bouncer caught up to him, some thought he was tied up again on some shady business, others thought he had been sent to jail.  When asked, he punches people in the face. Now packaged with a nasty attitude and clearly angry at the world around him, Nuclear just wants to beat the crap out of people and get paid for the pleasure. Nuclear won the Season Nine League Championship outright, not needing tiebreakers to claim the crown over Brandy McDonald.

Manager Bio:  "Rigor" Tony Mortis, an Italian-American gentleman who stands about 6'3", 240lbs of pasta and muscle. His body language is so Italian it hurts but he never says anything. Known for being a volunteer "sparring partner" at the Nuclear Bunker and frequently seen around town with other gentlemen of a similar level of class and sophistication. He is normally very camera shy, and despite The League being filmed with multiple cameras one has yet to get a good, up-close picture of his face.

Bio:  The “Grit City Giant” is from Tacoma. Unlike most huge wrestlers, he’s actually a pretty nice guy with no special talent for being a monster heel. In fact, he’s actually a little better at getting the fans on his side. He is a positively enormous human being, and fantastically strong. Anyone who gets in the ring with him is in for a very long night. Or a very short one.

Her task is not made easier in Season Twelve with the arrival of Monty Dhillon.

Bio:  Blood River, who is rumored to be living his wrestling gimmick as a cultist, is a seven-year veteran of the ring and has an eclectic style of offense.  Always accompanying him to the ring is The Acolyte, who is supposed to be one of his completely inept underlings. None were more surprised than River himself when The Acolyte managed to successfully interfere for the first time, leading to a River victory. Season Eleven is one that Blood River would like to forget, as he was sent tumbling into the Gamma Division with nary as much as a whimper, and many suspect he'll be just as quick to tumble into Delta at the end of this season...including himself, if he's being honest with himself.

Manager Bio:  The Acolyte, a member of the Fellowship of Yzgtx’fl, has been portrayed since his debut as a bumbling, inept lackey of Blood River. Since joining The League, The Acolyte has managed to successfully interfere in a match, leading to a Blood River win. In recent days, though, he's found himself in the crosshairs of Blood River, perhaps from gaining too much autonomy in the last year. The Acolyte enters Season Twelve having to watch every action he makes. Fun fact: The Acolyte has the sixth-best-selling shirt in The League (down from fourth a season ago).

Bio:  The League's Season Eight Champion, Brandy McDonald saw some residual success stemming from her triumph as she came within a match of repeating her feat in Season Nine. A few sponsorships came from this success, and Brandy seemed to rest on her laurels a bit too much given the drop-off in her record in Seasons Ten and Eleven. As her fifth season in the Alpha Division begins, she finds herself in severe danger with the Alpha Division lineup. She needs to find her Season Eight form, and fast, before she finds herself staring up from the Beta Division.

Bio:  Brian Blackfield earned his moniker of "The Juggernaut" after a perfect 14-0 season in the Delta Division during Season Eight. Over the following two seasons, he tasted defeat in singles matches only three times, and in his fourth season has stormed from the Delta Division to the top flight, winning three division titles on the way. Season Eleven was a definite wake-up call for The Juggernaut, as he came toe-to-toe with the best The League has to offer. Now in his second season in the Alpha Division, can The Juggernaut take what he's learned and get back to his previous ways?

Bio:  A sub-par Season Eleven saw De'siree Mitchell finish last in the Alpha Division, ensuring a demotion to Beta. She sees this as a chance to face new challengers, and respark a will to win that she found lacking in the Alpha Division after the last couple of seasons. Mitchell hopes the chance of scenery will send her back into Alpha in record time.

Bio:  Diego Rodriguez is one of the most technically gifted wrestlers in The League. However, it has not led to the success he's wanted as he has been mired in the Gamma Division since The League restarted. Mentioned in the same breath as Indigo Rose, Rodriguez has made the Gamma Division a place where technical workers feel at home. Season Twelve finds Diego moving into the Beta Division, leaving Rose behind. How will he fare with new competition at hand?

Bio:  Some people are born to be the type of person that no one likes.  Erick Gibson is one of those people, who feels like he should be the one in charge of every locker room he is in, and isn’t afraid to back up his claims with his fists.  He is never far away from his “personal assistant” (and real-life spouse) Karen McClure, who assists him during matches by running interference and generally being a suck-up in any way possible. Gibson comes back after ruthlessly quashing a hostile takeover attempt on his company, and he finds that he has a lot of pent-up frustrations to take out...and the Delta Division is as good a place as any.

Manager Bio:  Karen McClure, Erick Gibson's long-time PA, did not simply gain the position by marrying her boss. McClure's ability as a PA would be welcome in any Fortune 500 company; instead she works in the company she and Gibson formed together. It wasn't much of a challenge to port her attitude to the wrestling arena, and she has thrived in being just as heelish as Gibson when the cameras are rolling.

Bio:  George Mastachas, the Season Ten Champion, won the title by a very slim margin, needing to resort to tiebreakers to claim the belt over Nuclear Templeton. His Season Eleven did not go as smooth as he was hoping, as by Week Eleven he was eliminated from the title chase. Spending the offseason in quiet contemplation, Mastachas returns in Season Twelve with a refreshed mentality and a determination to prevent Nuclear Templeton from winning a third League Championship.

Bio:  Rose Presetore, who takes the moniker Indigo Rose after the designs on her ring gear, was quoted in an interview this past offseason that "facing down the fear of air travel was worth coming to The League to compete." While he's still below where she started in Season Eight--she was in the Beta Division at that time--Rose has shown signs of getting back to the upper half of The League as she came within an eyelash of promotion in Season Ten and Season Eleven. Now the veteran technical grappler in the division with the promotion of Diego Rodriguez, she looks to show Lance Heartilly and the newly-arrived duo of Leon de Ramos and Nocturne that when it comes to submission wrestling, the Gamma Division goes through her.

Bio:  Jean-Paul Ouilette's life has taken a a turn for the interesting over the last month or so. An investigative reporter did some sleuthing and found that Ouilette's professional relationship with manager Cecile Corine may actually be more than it appears. Ouilette's reputation as a playboy seems to have been destroyed, yet he does not seem so upset about it. He's been rumored to have said that perhaps his "dame du jour" is really the one he wants for life, and after maintaining a spot in the top flight to the surprise of many, he made it public that he is indeed engaged to Cecile Corine, with a wedding date to come after Season Twelve.

Manager Bio:  Originally brought in for a one-shot role as Jean-Paul Ouilette's "dame du jour," there was instant on-screen chemistry between Ouilette and Cecile Corine. So much so, in fact, that both Ouilette and his employer at the time immediately requested that Corine return in a recurring role as Ouilette's manager. Four years later, Corine has solidified her place as Ouilette's valet, and was recently seen sporting a decently-sized diamond ring that Ouilette confirmed after Season Eleven came from him. Corine has factored into a few of Ouilette's vicotries, and is clearly the top manager in The League as Season Twelve dawns.

Bio:  Lance Heartilly came into The League after storming through the Omega Division, and won promotion to the Gamma Division in his debut season. A true student of Canadian wrestling, Heartilly is every bit the technical mastermind that one would expect, and it's been that foundation that has propelled him here after being the one to single-handedly close a promotion due to his dominance...or so it is rumored, anyway. Lance hit a figurative wall in the Gamma Division, retaining his spot only due to injuries and an abysmal performance by Terrance Stevens. With the addition of two more technical wrestlers in the Gamma Division, is that the formula he needs to get back to his Season Ten form?

Spared the indignity of back-to-back relegations only due to the sudden absence of Erick Gibson, Clay finds himself an aerial wrestler lost amidst a sea of technical grapplers and hard-hitting maulers. Barely avoiding the relegation zone in Gamma during Season Eleven, his task does not get any easier in Season Twelve with four technical wrestlers in the division.

Bio:  Dani Bradbury, in the persona known as Nocturne, came up from the Omega Division at the same time as Lance Heartilly. Nocturne has seemed to struggle at times, as the larger opponents are harder for her to take down and then keep down long enough to apply her grapevined ankle lock finisher. A bit of a collapse saw her miss guaranteed promotion, but an injury to Big Scott Weathers gave her a second chance, as she finds herself as the third promotee to Gamma for Season Twelve. Will the protege of Will Prydor take advantage of this boon?

Bio:  Pulsar's League tenure has been less than stellar, if the pun may be excused. He struggled in the Alpha Division in Season Eight, and was relegated in Season Nine when the rules were changed to make the bottom two spots marked for relgation. He would have been dropped to Gamma for Season Eleven, and again in Season Twelve, but was spared both times due to unplanned abscences from people dropping into the Beta Division. The third time has to be the charm to take advantage of what Fate has handed him, if only for the sake of his self-esteem.

Bio:  Reverend Johnny Gross, an ordained Southern Baptist minister, found some modicum of success in The League during their Tag Team Turmoil events, teaming with Christian Priest. However, a less-than-amicable split in Season Ten led to Gross teaming with Brian Blackfield, an the pair went on to win the event. While unable to replicate that feat in Season Eleven, Gross was gifted a spot in the Alpha Division thanks to the injury to Mel O'Hallister, and finds himself preparing for his third season of Alpha Division competition.

Bio:  "Twilight" Terra Harding has always considered herself on the outside of society. While some will say that she simply never left her "goth phase," Terra quite simply does not care about peoples' opinions of her or her manner of expressing herself. Sporting a "devil-may-care" style of aerial attack, Terra looks to The League to get some extra ring time in and maybe learn some better brawling skills in order to be taken seriously in the wrestling world at large. To the surprise of practically everyone associated with The League, she won the Season Eleven Omega Division, outlasting twenty-three other competitors.

Health [Actual (Projected)]:  Head: 90.37 (89.74), Body: 99.75 (99.75), Arms: 100 (100), Legs: 100 (100)

Bio:  Terrance Stevens' Season Eleven was a disasterpiece, as he fell to Delta in quick fashion. While he enters Season Twelve near the top of the list in experience--beaten only by the other two Stevens in the division, no relation to him--he still has a long road ahead of him if he wants to avoid losing his spot on the main roster altogether.

Yoshii Nakamatsu

Career Record: 36 - 23, League Championships: 0. Average Time of Victory: 12:36, Average Match Rating: 2.085. MotN Awards: 0

Size: Lightweight

Manager:  None

Positive Traits: Steel Skull, Cardio Freak (Lv. 1), Heavy Load, Corner Flopper, Tag Team Master (Lv. 2), 

Negative Traits: Crimson Mask (Lv. 2), 

Health [Actual (Projected)]:  Head: 94.09 (93.71), Body: 99.9 (99.73), Arms: 100 (100), Legs: 100 (100)

Bio:  Season Eleven was a consolidation season for Yoshii Nakamatsu. He seemed content on building up his skills for a run at the Beta Division title in Season Twelve. The downside is that, while Christian Priest may have been promoted to Alpha, his replacement from Gamma is even more of a threat--Monty Dhillon, the second man to finish a season undefeated. It is going to take every bit of skill Nakamatsu has if he wants to be in contention for promotion at the end of this season.

ASSORTED NOTES/RULES CLARIFICATIONS:

GMPC Stat Updates are done on varying schedules during the season based on the division the GMPC is in. This is done to give PCs who update stats more often a better chance to climb out of the lower divisions ahead of other GMPCs by giving them more chances to “out-stat” their opponents. The update schedule is as follows:

  • Alpha Division: after every even week (2, 4, 6…) and week 13.
  • Beta Division: after weeks 3, 6, 9, and 12.
  • Gamma Division: after weeks 4, 7, and 11.
  • Delta Division: after week 7 only.

Naturally, all GMPCs will use all available XP in between seasons.

THE XP SCALING SYSTEM

The XP table that The League uses scales based off of total stat points, not off of individual stats. The scaling of points works roughly as follows, for those interested in the math and who may want to update trademark moves at the same time:

0 to 2,500 stat points: 5 XP/point

2,501 to 2,750 points: 10 XP/point

2,751 to 3.000 points: 15 XP/point

3,001 to 3,250 points: 20 XP/point

3,251 to 3,500 points: 25 XP/point

3,501 to 3,750 points: 30 XP/point

3,751 to 4,000 points: 40 XP/point

4,001 to 4,250 points: 45 XP/point

4,251 to 4,500 points: 50 XP/point

4,501 to 4,750 points: 55 XP/point

4,751 to 5,000 points: 60 XP/point

5,001 to 5,250 points: 70 XP/point

5,251 to 5,500 points: 80 XP/point

5,501 to 5,750 points: 90 XP/point

5,751 to 6,000 points: 100 XP/point

6,001 to 6,500 points: 125 XP/point

6,501 to 7,000 points: 150 XP/point

7,001 to 7,500 points: 175 XP/point

7,501 to 8,000 points: 200 XP/point

TOTAL XP NEEDED TO MAX OUT ALL STATS PLUS MANAGER OVERALL: 510,000 XP.

Things are moving rather smoothly in the seeding period.  I'm through the first round out of 5, or 16 out of 90 matches.

Diamond is the only PC to notch a win, stunning her opponent El Tornado with a Spear to win at just 5:38 into the contest, fastest in the opening round by almost 90 seconds.

Christian Priest lost in identical fashion to Big Scott Weathers in 8:31.

Nuclear Templeton could not figure out the sports entertainment style of Jean-Paul Ouilette, and interference from Cecile Corine didn't help matters any as Templeton only lasted a touch under 10 minutes against Ouilette--9:48 to be exact.

Monty Dhillon had the unenviable task of being in the opening match, which was a close affair that saw him lose out in the end to De'siree Mitchell in 11:02.

Diamond: 1 win, ATV 5:38

George Mastachas: 1 win, ATV 7:05

Big Scott Weathers: 1 win, ATV 8:31

Round 2 of the preseason is now in the books. An update on the PCs…

 

Diamond fought a valiant fight against the Italian submission artist, Indigo Rose, but it was the Blood from a Rose DDT that spelled disaster for Diamond, handing the League Original her first loss in a time of 14:33.

 

Monty Dhillon won the match of the round, in a four-star war with Terrance Stevens. This battle of Canadians saw Dhillon emerge victorious in 13:26.

 

Nuclear Templeton also found his way to the win column, taking down The Siberian Nightmare with the Armageddon Lariat in 15:07.

 

Christian Priest was unable to find a way to keep Marcus Clay grounded, and fell to 0-2 on the preseason after a close bout that lasted 14:11 in the South African’s favor.

 

If the preseason ended now, instead of after three further rounds, the divisions would shape up like so:

 

Big Scott Weathers: 2 wins, ATV 10:21

De'siree Mitchell: 2 wins, ATV 10:24

George Mastachas: 2 wins, ATV 10:30

Jean-Paul Ouilette: 2 wins, ATV 10:34

Jimmy Anarchy: 2 wins, ATV 11:09

Mel O'Hallister: 2 wins, ATV 13:13

Indigo Rose: 2 wins, ATV 13:51

The Mastodon: 2 wins, ATV 17:29

 

Diamond: 1 wins, ATV 5:38

Brandy McDonald: 1 wins, ATV 9:22

Billy Norris: 1 wins, ATV 9:55

El Tornado: 1 wins, ATV 10:16

Pulsar: 1 wins, ATV 11:18

Sin: 1 wins, ATV 12:10

Jun Onoo: 1 wins, ATV 12:57

Angela Wassermann: 1 wins, ATV 13:01

 

Monty Dhillon: 1 wins, ATV 13:26

Daniel Simmons: 1 wins, ATV 13:44

Diego Rodriguez: 1 wins, ATV 14:00

Markus Clay: 1 wins, ATV 14:11

Blood River: 1 wins, ATV 14:45

Nuclear Templeton: 1 wins, ATV 15:07

Reverend Johnny Gross: 1 wins, ATV 16:01

Erick Gibson: 1 wins, ATV 16:02

 

Terrance Stevens: 0 wins, ATV N/A

Otto von Schwarz: 0 wins, ATV N/A

Sterling Silver: 0 wins, ATV N/A

Yoshii Nakamatsu: 0 wins, ATV N/A

The Siberian Nightmare: 0 wins, ATV N/A

Sven Ulafsson: 0 wins, ATV N/A

Christian Priest: 0 wins, ATV N/A

Brian Blackfield: 0 wins, ATV N/A

 

POTENTIAL FINISHES:  Right now, there is still a slim chance that all four PCs can start in the Alpha Division. Four wins guarantees a spot in the top flight, three wins is only a 20% chance of it (only two of the people who finish 3-2 in the preseason will make it into the Alpha Division, every one else with three wins are locked into Beta).

Naturally, Diamond, Monty, and Nuclear have the easier path though not by much—if each of them win all three of their next matches, they are guaranteed a spot in the Alpha Division.  A second win all but assures a place in at least Gamma—only the bottom two people who go 2-3 will fall into Delta Division with all the 0- and 1-win people. Given her 5:38 win time, Diamond is not likely to fall into Delta with a second win unless it takes an hour or thereabouts, so one more victory for her all but assures her a third-tier minimum opening spot. Christian Priest needs to win two of his last three bouts to have a fighting chance at escaping the Delta Division to start Season 8; winning all three assures a minimum Beta Division start.

Pleased to notch a wi... I mean, of COURSE I WON!!!  I'd be 2 and 0 if I hadn't been ROBBED in the first round!

Looking forward to round three.

 

EDIT: Any chance we'll be getting the roster post updated with avatars?  (says the guy who made a custom render for his character)

As soon as I figure out the easiest way to do it with the info dump sheet I use in Excel. During BBCode days, all I had to use were [img] tags to get them to carry over.  Still leaning how this one works and what would be the easiest way for me to convert my current setup to something more picture-friendly.

EDIT:  For the moment, at least, there are pictures in the roster post.  No guarantees that will stay when I update it next but we'll find out, won't we?  :p

=================

Round 3 of the preseason is now done and dusted. Your PC update:

Diamond had to fight from behind the entire match, eventually overcoming the torrid start Diego Rodriguez exhibited and hitting Diamond in the Sky to notch her second win at 13:52.

Monty Dhillon and Jun Onoo went toe-to-toe, and this instance of Big Meaty Men Slapping Meat was won by Onoo’s IMPACT Driver in 12:09, all but eliminating Monty’s chances of starting in the Alpha Division.

Nuclear Templeton brought out a heretofore unseen weapon, the Radiation Leak, to surprise Daniel Simmons via submission and notch his second victory in 10:54.

Christian Priest feels like he has certifiable cause to cry foul after the events in his match, and to his credit Priest may have an argument there.  He had delivered Judgement to Brian Blackfield at just a little over 13 minutes in, got a pin, but the referee immediately waved it off after seeing Blackfield’s other foot under the bottom rope.  Priest was busted open a few minutes later, and at the 21-minute mark hit Blackfield with Canonized…which only served to rile the Scot up with an adrenaline rush.  A few Tartan Effects later, the referee called a stop to the match due to blood loss, awarding the victory to Brian Blackfield at 26:19.

With 60% of the preseason now done, here are your provisional standings:

  • Big Scott Weathers: 3 wins, ATV 9:30
  • George Mastachas: 3 wins, ATV 11:38
  • De'siree Mitchell: 3 wins, ATV 11:41
  • Mel O'Hallister: 3 wins, ATV 14:12
  • Billy Norris: 2 wins, ATV 9:25
  • Diamond: 2 wins, ATV 9:45
  • Brandy McDonald: 2 wins, ATV 10:13
  • Jean-Paul Ouilette: 2 wins, ATV 10:34

 

  • Pulsar: 2 wins, ATV 11:05
  • Jimmy Anarchy: 2 wins, ATV 11:09
  • Reverend Johnny Gross: 2 wins, ATV 11:46
  • Markus Clay: 2 wins, ATV 12:05
  • Jun Onoo: 2 wins, ATV 12:33
  • Nuclear Templeton: 2 wins, ATV 13:00
  • Indigo Rose: 2 wins, ATV 13:51
  • The Mastodon: 2 wins, ATV 17:29

 

  • El Tornado: 1 win, ATV 10:16
  • Sin: 1 win, ATV 12:10
  • Angela Wassermann: 1 win, ATV 13:01
  • Monty Dhillon: 1 win, ATV 13:26
  • Terrance Stevens: 1 win, ATV 13:31
  • Daniel Simmons: 1 win, ATV 13:44
  • Diego Rodriguez: 1 win, ATV 14:00
  • Blood River: 1 win, ATV 14:45

 

  • Erick Gibson: 1 win, ATV 16:02
  • Sven Ulafsson: 1 win, ATV 16:31
  • Sterling Silver: 1 win, ATV 18:05
  • Brian Blackfield: 1 win, ATV 26:19
  • Otto von Schwarz: 0 wins, ATV N/A
  • Yoshii Nakamatsu: 0 wins, ATV N/A
  • The Siberian Nightmare: 0 wins, ATV N/A
  • Christian Priest: 0 wins, ATV N/A

     

Shadowed’s Analysis:  I do think Priest got robbed, not only of the match but also of his chance to start in the upper two divisions.  The referee’s shenanigans ensures Priest can only start at best in the Gamma Division. There are sure to be some angry sermons coming after the events of round 3 are fully processed.

With another win each, Diamond and Nuclear guarantee a spot in at least the Beta Division to start. Monty still needs both remaining to reach that, and needs at least one to give himself hope of escaping a Delta Division start next week. Priest wins to win his last two to have an 80% chance of being in the Gamma Division—a single loss and he’s guaranteed to start in Delta (see below).

 

HOW THE DIVISIONS WILL SHAKE OUT AT THE END:

  • ALPHA DIVISION:  1 x 5-0 record, 5 x 4-1 records, 2 x 3-2 records, the best ATVs get the nod.
  • BETA DIVISION:  The remaining eight 3-2 records.
  • GAMMA DIVISION:  The eight 2-3 records with quicker ATV.
  • DELTA DIVISION: 1 x 0-5 record, 5 x 1-4 records, the remaining 2-3 records with the worst ATV.

 

ROUND 4 PC PAIRINGS:

(2-1) Diamond vs. Pulsar, winner guaranteed a spot in at least Beta Division

(2-1) Nuclear Templeton vs. Markus Clay, winner guaranteed a spot in at least Beta Division

(1-2) Monty Dhillon vs. Blood River, loser gets at best a Gamma Division spot

(0-3) Christian Priest vs. The Siberian Nightmare, loser guaranteed a spot in Delta Division

The penultimate round of the preseason has been completed. As of the time of this writing, so has the final round, but for the sake of suspense the results for round 5 aren’t being posted for a few days while I do necessary administrative work behind the scenes to prepare for the official start of Season Eight.

Diamond struggled against the luchador Pulsar, and it was a slingshot guillotina from the veteran that gave him the victory at 7:48.  The loss puts Diamond into a must-win for round 5 to start the season in the Beta Division.

The same cannot be said for Nuclear Templeton, though.  While it was ugly, and he could not apply the Radiation Leak on the speedy Markus Clay, Nuclear did manage to convert a missed slingshot senton from Clay into a pin at 10:46. The win guarantees him at least a Beta Division spot, and a win in round 5 puts him in the Alpha Division.

Monty Dhillon ran into the same sort of issue with Blood River.  Dhillon could not stun River long enough to hit his Empire Bomb, and eventually got worn down enough to eat a Crimson Regret at 17:21.  The loss ensures Dhillon can, at best, start in the Gamma Division.

After the events of round three, Christian Priest came out with a chip on his shoulder. The Siberian Nightmare stood no chance against the onslaught of Priest, and a Canonized lariat at 12:03 gives Christian a fighting chance to not be in the Delta Division come the start of the season.

With one round remaining, here are your updated standings:

·        Big Scott Weathers: 4 wins, ATV 10:48  *Guaranteed an Alpha Division spot

·        De'siree Mitchell: 4 wins, ATV 12:23  *Guaranteed an Alpha Division spot

·        Brandy McDonald: 3 wins, ATV 9:28

·        Pulsar: 3 wins, ATV 9:59

·        Reverend Johnny Gross: 3 wins, ATV 10:18

·        Jean-Paul Ouilette: 3 wins, ATV 11:07

·        George Mastachas: 3 wins, ATV 11:38

·        Nuclear Templeton: 3 wins, ATV 12:16

 

 

·        Mel O'Hallister: 3 wins, ATV 14:12

·        The Mastodon: 3 wins, ATV 16:50

·        Billy Norris: 2 wins, ATV 9:25

·        Diamond: 2 wins, ATV 9:45

·        Terrance Stevens: 2 wins, ATV 10:50

·        Erick Gibson: 2 wins, ATV 11:03

·        Jimmy Anarchy: 2 wins, ATV 11:09

·        Daniel Simmons: 2 wins, ATV 12:00

 

·        Markus Clay: 2 wins, ATV 12:05

·        Jun Onoo: 2 wins, ATV 12:33

·        Angela Wassermann: 2 wins, ATV 12:42

·        Indigo Rose: 2 wins, ATV 13:51

·        Blood River: 2 wins, ATV 16:03

·        Sven Ulafsson: 2 wins, ATV 23:02

·        Yoshii Nakamatsu: 1 win, ATV 10:05

·        El Tornado: 1 win, ATV 10:16

 

·        Christian Priest: 1 win, ATV 12:03

·        Sin: 1 win, ATV 12:10

·        Monty Dhillon: 1 win, ATV 13:26

·        Diego Rodriguez: 1 win, ATV 14:00

·        Sterling Silver: 1 win, ATV 18:05

·        Brian Blackfield: 1 win, ATV 26:19

·        Otto von Schwarz: 0 wins, ATV N/A  *Guaranteed to start in Delta Division

·        The Siberian Nightmare: 0 wins, ATV N/A  *Guaranteed to start in Delta Division

 

Shadowed’s Analysis:  Of the four PCs, Nuclear’s clearly in the best position right now.  A win, and he starts in the Alpha Division with an immediate shot at the League Championship he’s been denied for seven seasons. 

Diamond needs a quick win to have a shot at joining Nuclear in the top division; her 9:45 ATV is good but there are two 3-1 people with better already (Brandy McDonald and Pulsar), if they both lose and Diamond can’t win fast enough, Diamond falls to the Beta Division to start Season 8. If she loses, she’s practically guaranteed a Gamma Division spot due to that ATV of hers.

Priest and Dhillon both are locked into the lower half of the League to start, the only question is in which division.  A win doesn’t guarantee them entry into the Gamma Division; there are a lot of 11-to-13- minute ATVs at the 1- and 2-win levels.  A loss, though, guarantees them a start in the lowly Delta Division and at least three seasons worth of work to attempt to make it to the Alpha Division to fight for the League Championship.

 

FINAL ROUND PC PAIRINGS:

(3-1) Nuclear Templeton vs. Reverend Johnny Gross, winner earns spot in Alpha Division

(2-2) Diamond vs. Billy Norris, winner earns a spot in Beta Division at worst

(1-3) Monty Dhillon vs. El Tornado, loser starts in Delta Division

(1-3) Christian Priest vs. Yoshii Nakamatsu, loser starts in Delta Division

The preseason has now come to a close.  The perfect 5-0 record goes to De’siree Mitchell, who took down Big Scott Weathers to emerge undefeated.  On the opposite end of the spectrum, Otto von Schwarz went 0-5, losing his final match to The Siberian Nightmare.

As for the PCs…

Nuclear Templeton had a war with Reverend Johnny Gross, with multiple near-misses of finishers on both sides.  In the end, though, the new-and-improved Armageddon Lariat was enough for Nuclear to prevail in 16:20, netting Nuclear his fourth win and a guaranteed spot in the Alpha Division.

Diamond held the early advantage in her contest, but when she failed in hitting the 24 Karat Kiss, it was enough to throw her off her game mentally.  Billy Norris took advantage, eventually hitting his Down Under Disaster in 14:42 to send Diamond into the Gamma Division to start the season.

Both Christian Priest and Monty Dhillon struggled in their matches.  Priest was unable to string together much offense, losing to Yoshii Nakamatsu in 12:10.  Dhillon had a little more success, but multiple attempts at the Empire Bomb went for naught as El Tornado outlasted him in a 27:25 marathon.  Despite that length of time, Tornado still managed to get into the Gamma Division, while Priest and Dhillon both are confined to the Delta Division for Season 8.

THE FINAL STANDINGS/DIVISION LINEUPS FOR SEASON 8:

ALPHA DIVISION

·       De’siree Mitchell

·       Brandy McDonald

·       Big Scott Weathers

·       George Mastachas

·       Monty Dhillon

·       Sterling Silver

·       Otto von Schwarz

 

THE NEXT STEPS

The next steps involve me posting the full schedule in one of the opening posts of the thread for reference.  All wrestlers have two gimmick matches, and some did not receive a good draw from the RNG—one person has a pair of European Rules matches which is going to wreck their ATV!  Predictions will also open once I post the schedule and make a separate post for the week 1 card. For this week, the order is set by division; going forward the order depends on combined OVR rating, division, gimmick matches, and (for the second half) those in the top half of their division standings. So expect a little more fluidity in the match order going forward.

The schedule will be posted once I hear back from one of my regular readers regarding accessibility.  The colors I have above for the divisions are not final—Red and Dark Yellow are likely still in for the top two divisions, it’s mainly the bottom two I’m looking to swap out (or Gamma really, since lowly Delta can keep its plain black/white text for a header)—and once that has been completed the official schedule and week 1 card will be posted.  I expect it to be later today. 

The Week 1 show I plan to have posted on September 25 (Sunday).  The current plan is to run a week’s matches on Saturday morning/midday while roommate is asleep, do the bulk of the show write-up as matches are run, then do the Match of the Night and final proofreading on Sunday morning before posting the show.  With no training for Week 1, I’ve already finished half of the matches as of this writing and will be running the others today.

Ooof, pretty rough pre-season for Priest, but he'll bounce back. Also Priest vs Sin to kick off the redemption tour is amazing 😂

Okay, so...I had my second booster shot for the coronavirus today, had my flu shot earlier this week.  I can already feel the normal effects of the booster trying to kick in.  So before I feel like absolute hot garbage tomorrow, I'm making an executive decision.  Y'all are getting the first week a little early. :D

 

It is said that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.  But we’ve traveled those thousand miles, and more over the years.  To the world-weary, each journey is but another stop on the walk of life.  So for the next four months, we’re going to slow things down.  Gone are the days of jet-setting around the world, going from America to Mexico to Europe in consecutive weeks. Gone—for now—are the days of touring the country, each show coming from a different place with the same faces.

No, for this season, we’re sticking to one place.  A place that someone who’s been a voice of The League for years calls home, and wants one final season under the headset before she calls it a career and leaves the spotlight to raise her…OUR…family.  Tonight, and every time we air for the next fourteen weeks, we come to you from my home, The Aerie School of Professional Wrestling, nestled in the farthest suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland. A small, intimate venue to let those competing get used to the stakes they wrestle for, before this idea begins to tour the country one final time.

For some of these wrestlers, there is no future.  This is their last chance at glory, of achieving anything of note within the squared circle before time catches up to them.  For others, this is but a launching pad, into greater successes.  Who is to say, when the final curtain falls, where each of them goes from here?

But first, the journey must be made.  With that said, I invite you all—ladies, gentlemen, and everyone else in between or otherwise—to join us for the first chapter in the final volumes of an experiment a dozen years in the making.  To join us, as we rise up one more time…and reform The League.

--“The Phoenix” Will Prydor

September 25, 2022

THE LEAGUE:  SEASON EIGHT, WEEK ONE

 

Unlike previous seasons, there is no pyrotechnical display to open the show.  Just a look at the well-lit and well-maintained Aerie School of Professional Wrestling, with about a hundred people seated around the ring.  Off to the side, away from the ring, is our long-time League announce team, back together for one last run.

Bob Sinclair:  It’s been almost nine years since we’ve been together on air, but hello, everyone, and welcome to the first week in an all-new, revamped League!  Bob Sinclair here on the play-by-play, and joined at the announce desk by my usual partners in the booth, “The Real Deal” Frankie Garnett and Tori Montgomery!

Frankie Garnett:  I have to say, Bob, you’re looking and sounding better than I expected. I figured after nine years, you’d have let yourself go and would be a shell of your former self.

Tori Montgomery: Sounds to me like someone’s self-projecting.

Frankie Garnett: Oh, like you’re one to talk! Who did you have to bribe to get this show to come to this rinky-dink place?  I know you’re the reason we’re staying in one place this season!

Tori Montgomery:  That would be my husband, a former League champion and your boss, Frankie.

Frankie Garnett:  …oh…wait a second.  Husband?!

Tori Montgomery:  Man, you’ve really been out of the loop, Frankie.  Where have you been, on a seven-year bender in Vegas?

(Five seconds of dead air as Frankie, for once, is rendered speechless.)

Bob Sinclair:  I see you still have it, Tori.

Tori Montgomery:  Never lost it. But on a serious note, folks, everything you know about the League has changed since we last came to you in 2014.  Thirty-two participants, four divisions of eight, no matches outside of the division, and promotion/relegation between divisions. There are no more crazy division formats, no more oddball schedules.  Fourteen matches, the best record wins a division, and the winner of the Alpha Division gets crowned the League Champion! Simple, to the point, and for the first time in League history, we will have established continuity between seasons.  I’m looking forward to seeing where things go once The League goes back on the road, Bob.

Bob Sinclair: Remind me when we go off-air to ask you more about that, Tori. But for now, we’re ready to kick off our opening contest in our bottom division, the Delta Division, so let’s go to the ring and get to the action!

 

Eda7f6d.jpg The Siberian Nightmare (0-0, OVR 400) vs. Monty Dhillon (0-0, OVR 400) vz0qqDp.jpg

DELTA DIVISION

 

Neither man was intimidated by the size of their opponent, as was evident from the opening bell when Dhillon simply manhandled Nightmare over into a suplex.  From here, this was a straight-up hoss fight, heavy shots seeming to land at will.  At fourteen minutes in, the match seemed to be over in Monty Dhillon’s favor, following an Empire Bomb, but the referee waved off the fall due to missing a foot on the ropes.  To be fair to the official, though, he did eat a strong charging forearm from Nightmare right before this, so missing something wasn’t too out of place.  Nightmare would have his chances at the Siberian Avalanche, but in the end Dhillon simply powerbombed Nightmare and held on for the cover, just getting three before Nightmare got a shoulder up.  A hard-fought victory and a heck of an opening match to start The League’s eighth official season.

Monty Dhillon (1-0) def. The Siberian Nightmare (0-1) via Pinfall (Powerbomb Pin) in 18:35.  Rating: ***

Changes for Monty Dhillon:  OVR + 5.24, XP + 529.66, minor damage to head and body

Changes for The Siberian Nightmare:  OVR + 1.32, XP + 132.42, moderate damage to head and body

 

 

RdUenQh.jpg Brian Blackfield (0-0, OVR 400) vs. Sterling Silver (0-0, OVR 400) va4qjuU.jpg

 

DELTA DIVISION

 

After an excellent opening bout, this match seemed to pale in comparison.  Silver controlled the first four minutes or so, but could not keep the offense going and allowed Blackfield back into the match.  The Scot would waste little time in asserting control, hitting his Tartan Effect and the Scotland Destroyer within a span of thirty seconds to put away the luchadora.

Brian Blackfield (1-0) def. Sterling Silver (0-1) via Pinfall (Scotland Destroyer) in 10:11.  Rating: **

 

Changes for Brian Blackfield:  OVR + 3.51, XP + 484.89, minor damage to head

Changes for Sterling Silver:  OVR + 0.40, XP + 121.22, moderate damage to head

 

9VJLBCy.jpg Sven Ulafsson (0-0, OVR 400) vs. Otto von Schwarz (0-0, OVR 400) 7i2wu7j.jpg5MMzLA4.jpg

 

DELTA DIVISION

 

If the author may be allowed to step out of narrative character for a moment… this match was a first.  In literally the second move of the match, Otto busted open Sven with a running face smash.  I’ve run close to eight hundred matches in this engine and that is the first time I can recall seeing blood spilled just fifteen seconds into the match.  Now, where was I…right.

The echoes of the opening bell hadn’t even faded to silence before Otto caught his opponent with a face smash that opened a small laceration.  Unfortunately for Otto, that would be the high point of the match for him.  Sven eventually took control and despite the laceration, easily put the giant away in what was a dull and lifeless bout.

Sven Ulafsson (1-0) def. Otto von Schwarz (0-1) via Pinfall (Spinning Elbow Blow) in 11:34.  Rating: *

 

Changes for Sven Ulafsson:  OVR + 2.39, XP + 445.09, minor damage to head

Changes for Otto von Schwarz:  OVR -0.39, XP + 111.27, no notable damage.

 

 

AOP9il0.jpgNldKaI4.jpg Christian Priest (0-0, OVR 400) vs. Sin (0-0, OVR 400) JpyUoje.jpg

 

DELTA DIVISION, SUBMISSION MATCH

 

This was not going to be a pretty match. Neither person has a submission move in their arsenal that can actually end a match, so this was going to come down to either a luckily executed move, or someone bleeding too much.  The drama over who would be the first to get a good submission hold in helped elevate the match into a contender for Match of the Night.  In the end, despite a testicular claw that Priest eventually broke free of, Sin was unable to capitalize on Priest’s mistakes.  Priest would turn a missed Cast the Stone into a dragon sleeper—or at least some variant of it—and finally notch the submission for his first win of the season.

Christian Priest (1-0) def. Sin (0-1) via Submission (force submission) in 16:15.  Rating: ***

 

Changes for Christian Priest:  OVR + 5.08, XP + 528.45, minor damage to head

Changes for Sin:  OVR + 1.28, XP + 132.11, minor damage to head

 

 

V1I70uc.jpg Jimmy Anarchy (0-0, OVR 400) vs. Jun Onoo (0-0, OVR 400) zTBxNBX.jpg

 

GAMMA DIVISION

 

Bob Sinclair:  With our first four matches out of the way, we move up into our third tier, the Gamma Division, and a match that promises a lot of hard-hitting action and very few technical feats of any type.

Frankie Garnett:  So in other words, my kind of violence!  All right, I can get behind this!

Bob Sinclair:  Tori, who do you favor in this one?

Tori Montgomery:  Quite simply, this is a battle of a super heavyweight trying to batter down his opponent before said opponent can win by way of a thousand cuts.  I’m usually hard-pressed to go against the larger man in a situation like that, and I’m not about to here.  Jun Onoo, I’m guessing 14 minutes.

Bob Sinclair:  Fair enough.  I’m going with Anarchy, the larger men traditionally have stamina issues and I think Anarchy can outlast his opponent.  Frankie?

Frankie Garnett:  That’s simple.  I win.

Bob Sinclair:  Come again?

Frankie Garnett:  I win.  It’s two people beating the tar out of each other, how can I lose?!

Tori Montgomery: I don’t think he understood the assignment, Bob.

Bob Sinclair: Assuredly not.  But the time for talk is over, both men are in the ring, and there’s the bell to get us underway in the Gamma Division!

GAMMA DIVISION

 

This one seemed like it had just gotten started when, just as suddenly, it was over.  This was fast-paced throughout, and once again Diamond seems to have a weakness against springboard legdrops, as that was what El Tornado utilized to put Diamond down in the fastest match of the week so far.  Barely eight minutes in, and Tornado notches the win and an impressive start to his season, all but assuring himself the Gamma Division lead via tie-breaker after the first week.

GAMMA DIVISION

 

For the first six minutes of this match, it looked to be a runaway victory for Nakamatsu.  Diego weathered the storm, though, even after eating a DEVASTATION Knee.  Rodriguez would get his share of offense in, but Nakamatsu was never in danger of being caught with either of Rodriguez’s finishing submission holds and in the end Yoshii picked up the win after hitting the Emperor’s Fall.  A good, solid match that was a MOTN contender.

GAMMA DIVISION

 

A bit of a letdown after the previous match, this was still close at the end despite Gibson dominating the first half of the match.  River would attempt a comeback, but Gibson would manipulate River’s mask just enough so the occultist didn’t see either a spinning backfist of the Terminable Offense that followed.  Gibson cheats his way to a victory, to the delight of Karen McClure at ringside.

BETA DIVISION

 

This match could be divided into three acts. In the first act (four minutes), Markus Clay held dominance, barely letting his opponent get any offense.  In the second act (minutes five to seven), O’Hallister stormed back, battering Clay with numerous blows and strikes.  In the climax (the last four minutes), Clay busted open O’Hallister with a knee drop, only for O’Hallister to return the favor not even thirty seconds later with a series of trapping headbutts.  The headbutts stunned Clay long enough for O’Hallister to deliver his reverse DDT finisher and emerge from week one relatively unscathed and with a victory.

BETA DIVISION

 

This went similar to the previous Beta Division match—Rose controlled the first part, Norris the second—but the third part was back-and-forth over the closing six minutes.  Norris missed a Down Under Disaster, Rose was unable to land Blood From a Rose to set up Norris for the Vite d’Indaco, and the Australian did not miss a second attempt at the Down Under Disaster.  A fairly good match, all told, as Norris picks up the duke.

BETA DIVISION

 

A fairly even match throughout, this one had several convincing near-falls after the nine-minute point.  Both men were busted open (Stevens via knee drop, Simmons via stump piledriver), but blood loss was never an issue in this contest.  The end came about when Simmons countered a Maple Leaf Meltdown attempt with a right-handed roundhouse to the body and then hit his Blue Collar Driver to put down Stevens for three.

BETA DIVISION

 

The final match of Beta Division action tonight was a slight let-down from the last two.  Despite being billed as an entertainer more so than a wrestler, Ouilette seemed to have his working face on tonight against the former MMA champion.  This was back and forth, though more in Ouilette’s favor throughout, that ended after Ouilette surprised Wassermann with his entertainment fist drop, Le Petit Mort.  Some would call this an upset and they’d have a valid argument, as Ouilette emerges victorious.

ALPHA DIVISION

 

If you’d left the living room to go get a snack before the Alpha Division matches started, you’d have caught only the tail end of this one.  There was no strategy here—Mastodon wanted to use his size, Weathers just wanted to beat the hell out of his opponent—and in this instance size won.  Mastodon surprised Weathers with a powerbomb that held on to for the pin, and earned the first Alpha Division win at just under nine minutes into the contest.

ALPHA DIVISION

 

This match made up for its immediate predecessor.  Mitchell had Gross in trouble early, but the Right Reverend was able to claw his way back into the match (almost literally—eye rakes and eye pokes were the foundation of his comeback).  It would be Gross who’d attempt a finisher first, trying to apply Come to Jesus on Mitchell after a powerbomb landed.  Mitchell would find the ropes, though, and Gross did not get a second attempt at it.  It took two more minutes for Mitchell to stun Gross enough that an All Out Blitz did the trick, and the former indoor football star notches her first win in the Alpha Division in a Match of the Night contender.

ALPHA DIVISION

 

If someone had “a glorified squash match in the Alpha Division” on their bingo card this week, I’d like to see it.  Pulsar simply got next to no offense going, while Brandy seemed to control the pace at will.  A Hang Over right into a Brandy with a Twist, a combination she hardly ever seems to land in a match, was enough for McDonald to put away the luchador with ease and likely assure herself the initial Alpha Division lead.

ALPHA DIVISION, TABLES MATCH

 

Main event time for the opening week of The League. This promised to be a slugfest, with Mastachas’s brawling and strength against the smashmouth style of Nuclear.  It was not very entertaining unless you simply wanted an all-out fight, in which case you got an almost one-sided one.  Mastachas had some offense here and there, but never enough to threaten Nuclear.  It was at ringside, a powerbomb through a half-set-up table, that gave Nuclear the win in convincing fashion to end the opening week of Season Eight.

WEEK 2 SCHEDULE

 

ALPHA DIVISION

Nuclear Templeton (1-0, OVR 403) vs. Brandy McDonald (1-0, OVR 403)

- Two fast starters means this could be a sub-5 minute beatdown. Gonna back classic Nuclear form of strong regular season before the playoff collapse ;)

EUROPEAN RULES:  The Mastodon (1-0, OVR 404) vs. Reverend Johnny Gross (0-1, OVR 401)

Pulsar (0-1, OVR 399) vs. De'siree Mitchell (1-0, OVR 406)

DELTA DIVISION

Quote

“I don’t want to hear y’all talking about this ‘workrate’... and moonsaults. I don’t care about any of that. Ya heard? You want a great match? Nah - bump that. I wanna see two big men with big... chests and big muscles, bumping meat. That’s why I’m here. That’s why I watched wrestling as a kid. You want your five star matches? You want your 30 minute classics? Not me. Big meaty men slapping meat. That’s what I want.” - Big E

CAGE:  Monty Dhillon (1-0, OVR 405) vs. Otto von Schwarz (0-1, OVR 400)

- I would pay money to see Otto try climb out of the cage with all the grace of a top heavy minivan. Actually, does the "Cannot Go Up Top" prevent some cage escapes? Might be a grind then

Christian Priest (1-0, OVR 405) vs. The Siberian Nightmare (0-1, OVR 401)

- Bowling Shoe ugly potential here. A dull brawl awaits

Sin (0-1, OVR 401) vs. Brian Blackfield (1-0, OVR 404)

Sterling Silver (0-1, OVR 400) vs. Sven Ulafsson (1-0, OVR 402)

 

I'm all for the beefy Delta Division - 2x Big Heavyweight, 2x Super Heavyweights, 1x Giant. Let's see those glorious slogs of a match this season              👍
