Historian Posted March 30 Share Posted March 30 "I like what you’ve done with the place,” Brent Hill grunted while he looked around the converted K-Mart in downtown Baltimore that TCW had helped fund. When he had pitched Kyled Rhodes and the BriCo higher-ups that they needed to partner with MAW for a developmental league, it had taken some convincing. The money-movers didn’t see the point in the investment, but Brent understood that for TCW to compete with USPW and SWF, it had to have a place to send talent. It needed a place that could develop them and who better to develop them than Sam Keith and Mid Atlantic Wrestling? “I appreciate it,” Sam replied, “It’s a good building.” “I like the name. Rip Chord Memorial Coliseum. Catchy.” “It was Jay’s idea,” Sam said emotionless. Sam had always been reserved privately. He kept his emotions to himself unless the camera was on and he needed to turn it on. “I appreciate you being willing to change the schedule too,” Brent added. Inside the ring at the center of the Coliseum – the arena portion had been done like a classic fieldhouse so that all 300 seats within the building had a great shot of the ring. Sam nodded his head. He had agreed to start shooting television in February and also add a second monthly show called Flashpoint. He had reluctantly agreed to also start a training show in February at a local church gym. “I think the guys will really benefit from the extra work,” Brent continued talking as Sam listened. Brent was desperately fighting for TCW to stay alive. They had always been smaller than SWF but at one point they were the clear number two in America. With USPW’s meteoric rise behind Nicky Champion and billionaire Allen Packer’s willingness to spend money, TCW had fallen to third; however, Brent saw an opening. SWF was weak. Richard Eisen was gone. Jerry and Eric were left in control and Brent didn’t trust either of their creative acumen or their business acumen. “I’m sure they will,” Sam finally spoke. “I have a couple of more guys I’d like you to feature,” Brent added, “Quentin Queen, Curtis Shaw, and Aldous Blackfriar.” Sam rubbed the bridge of his nose, “You want me to add three more guys to the roster?” Brent Hill nodded his head, “We will, of course, pay for them. They’re all graduates of the school. They’ve been getting some indy work but we want to bring them back into the fold. I don’t have anything creatively for them. If you could use them, I’d appreciate it.” Sam sighed. He didn’t really want to add three guys to the roster. He was already planning on bringing in Sam Copeland as a favor to his dad. Three more guys meant less time to go around, but at the same time, it was three guys that Sam didn’t have to pay. Three more guys to the mix, especially with an added show and weekly TV coming up that are on someone else’s dime. “Okay,” Sam finally said, “Send them down.” “I appreciate it.” The two men shook hands. Sam had known Brent for over two years. He had lobbied, unsuccessfully, for Brent to get a job in SWF before TCW locked him up. Sam had worked with Brent in The Syndicate. He had helped get Brent ready to be a booker and that relationship has paid off. Now Sam has a building. He has an agreement to feature talent for TCW. 2020 was going to be a big, big year. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So I love MAW. I do. I've had the itch to see if I can get something going on here again. This time, I'm going to tackle MAW and see if I can just book some interesting stuff. My inspiration for this is the old OVW system and all of the new renders that @King Bison has been putting out. Hopefully this doesn't suck and I've still got some diary skills. This exists in a modified database. It includes all of willr0ck's women's mods. It includes venues from @The Blonde Bomber's mod. It includes promotions from my own promotion mod. It also includes some RTG characters that I created just to populate the world. The COTT has been heavily expanded. That may come into play. If you have any questions or comments or whatever, let a cowboy know. 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
