Default WEXXV: With Fire & Blood



December 20th 2015
Southern Sendai Hospital (Tohoku, Japan)



I couldn't believe it. The hardcore icon, the legend, the pioneer, this monster of a man that I had known for over a decade, had been slowly reduced into a shell of himself. Who would've known that the great Ryu Kajahara, victorious in so many brutal wars throughout his career, would slowly lose the battle to a longtime illness. An illness he couldn't hit with a steel chair or set on fire, or powerbomb through a table. With all his strength, he was powerless. And yet, even during his last days, he wouldn't dare to show how weak he truly was. His pride wouldn't let him.





Senmatsu, Morisue, Sakata, Konoe and I had been taking shifts visiting him in the hospital. With no relatives or family, we felt that it was our responsibility to stay with him till the end. We were his family.



The days grew longer still. It was only a matter of time. The daylight slowly dimmed into nothingness..

".. Zeshin.."

I jumped up from my seat and came closer.

"Please.. Take care of th- .. Boys.. WEXXV.. I believe in.. I've always believed in you..", he struggled. I was speechless, concentrating on every single word he managed to say with the little strenght he had left in him.

He raised his hand up slightly, and I held on to it with both hands.

".. Promise me.. You'll lead them to.. Greatness."

"I promise.. .. B-b-.. But how?", I managed to say.

"The ... of the.. Warrior.. As it's .... been..", he mumbled. I could barely hear the words.



His grip tightened.

".. WITH FIRE.. AND BLOOD."









.. And then came the loudest silence I had ever heard..

W E X X V


"Warrior Engine XXV was the brainchild of the legendary genius \ maniac Ryu Kajahara, who saw a gap in the Japanese market for a truly wild hardcore promotion. Using his own popularity as the launch pad, WEXXV burst onto the scene in 2005 and soon had people talking thanks to the organised chaos that passed for one of their shows. Against all odds, WEXXV have managed to stay alive despite flirting with bankruptcy on a near annual basis, and have even found themselves becoming more influential as founding members of Kajahara's ultra-controversial 'Modern Japan' movement. After Kajahara's death in late 2015, Zeshin Makioka took over the company.


Hiring Rules: Minimum Size Lightweight, Style Cannot Be Technician
Popularity: E+ In Tohoku, E elsewhere in Japan (Size: Small)

.. Will attract a vocal fan base to the company's shows.
.. Will mean wrestlers are rated equally on performance and popularity.
.. Will make Puroresu, Chain Wrestling, Mat Work and Submissions less effective.
.. Will mean that fans expect all wrestlers to have a gimmick, fans will like risky gimmicks and will not respond to one-dimensional gimmicks.
.. Will mean each shows will need to have atleast one match aimed as High Spots, Car Crash or Steal The Show.
.. Will mean each shows will need to have atleast one match aimed as Wild Brawl, Car Crash or Mayhem.
.. Will attract fans who respond well to High Risk matches and will be put off by low risk matches.
.. Will prevent the company from getting any TV time slots.
.. Will make getting sponsorship money extremely tough.
.. Will mean that the "Young Lion" system will not be taken into account.

What an intro. I'm so pumped for some Japanese Deathmatch action! One of the Japanese companies I haven't played (because I am not imaginative enough for hardcore) so I really can't wait to see what you do with them and the awesome talent they have!

Interesting. Why Zeshion Makioka over one of the older pillars like Mirosue, Sakata or Senmatsu?

Because there's only five people in WEXXV that can be owners in the in-game data, those five being Gareth Wayne, Kuniyoshi Kawamura, Motoichi Arakida, Robun Yamazaki and Zeshin Makioka. Motoichi, the road agent, has better business reputation but having Zeshin being the owner & head booker of the promotion provides a lot more story possibilities.

Thanks for the comments! However I must say that I have a terrible reputation of starting & stopping my diaries so don't hold your breath. Here's hoping this will actually stay alive!

To all of you seasoned veterans, it's great to be back. I haven't followed wrestling in ages but the recent AEW hype and the news about TEW2020 made me want to do a final play & diary of TEW2016.

FMW is my all-time favorite guilty pleasure wrestling, and since WEXXV is the C-Verse version of it... I'm so ready for this diary

Having just started my first save with WEXXV last week, I'm excited to see how someone else books the promotion. I always love to see the spins other people put on the companies I've booked before, so color me excited.

A BIG shoutout to user southside_hitmen (here's the latest diary of his: Black Canvas Grappling: Dead Lions Do Not Roar [CVerse]) for letting me learn from his show formatting code. As an 80's kid and the oldest of my siblings I went blindly forward and through hours of trial and error managed to unlock atleast some secrets of the code that I tried to dechiper Here's the updated roster info screen!

On board for this!

Side note, Eiichi Umehara's portrait seems to be missing and Henry Bennett's is actually Henry Lee
