Saturday 13th February


Searching for people who could be available for CZCW to add to the Announce desk reveals to me something that I found hard to believe.

There is an announcer of the ultimate highest class, who has been made the scapegoat of his company's relative fall from grace. He is still in his prime as a man who can relay the action to the viewer and add a great deal of depth and understanding to how the match works, what the wrestlers are trying to do. He has a substantial understanding of how the industry works, and what the booker is trying to achieve in certain matches and situations, having been a booker himself until 2015, when he was fired by the SWF.

Yes, unbelievably, Peter Michaels is still a free agent, is still interested in working as a wrestling announcer and, perhaps even more unbelievably, is willing to talk to CZCW about working here. For some reason, nobody has even approached him since SWF made him the fall guy for their slip behind USPW, even though it was his booking that was the questionable area of his work, rather than his announcing. Yet he is perhaps the best out there at calling the action, and for TCW or USPW, or even the Canadian promotions, to have passed up on his services seems remarkable, and perhaps just the fillip that CZCW needs to get the company noticed beyond the confines of California.

Admittedly we will need to pay him, but even his initial asking price was not beyond what we could afford – it would make him the second highest earner in the company, at present, but to my mind it would be worth it – he would be heard in every match, not just one match a week, and would add a huge amount to the presentation. Now we just have to convince him to sign! Perhaps the honour of calling matches involving the greatest wrestler in the world will be the sort of enticement he is interested in!

CZCW Tonight
Friday 19th February 2016

Preview

Welcome to this week's edition of CZCW Tonight! After several weeks of attacks and matches between the two, we may finally find out tonight exactly why Lance Trueman and Storm Spillane have recently been at odds, as Trueman has agreed to take the time out to explain on tonight's show. Since The American Cobras have been told to stay away from the show in order to keep things civilized, we might actually get some answers.

Meanwhile, Trueman's Going Coastal tag partner Fernandes Franklin will take on the lone available member of Rich and Famous, Jackpot Jordan, in singles action, and in another singles bout American Flash will face off against rookie Chet Chavez.

Our main event will see last week's opponents, Fox Mask and the Coastal Zone Champion Champagne Lover teaming up to take on veteran Dave Wallace and Lover's challenger for the belt at CZCW Uprising, Super Ninja. Ninja suggested last week that he had surprises in store for the champion, so it will be interesting to see whether any of them get revealed on tonight's show.

Come on down and find out!

Card for predictions:

American Flash vs. Chet Chavez

Jackpot Jordan vs. Fernandes Franklin

Fox Mask & Champagne Lover vs. Super Ninja & Dave Wallace

I wonder if anyone's ever done an angle where Super Ninja loses his mask and we find out he's not actually Asian or a ninja, but just a really smart guy who understood the value of a good gimmick

@michgcs: Yeah I have had Waylon Walls in at least one diary. I might have been more than one. Plus I always play as CZCW (They are one of my favorite C-Verse companies), so I tend to always have Waylon in one of my games at all times.

CZCW Tonight

Friday 19th February 2016


Phoenix, Arizona

Attendance: 3400



The first thing of note this evening is that there is a new face at the announce desk. Sitting next to The Guru and Cliff Anderson is one of the premier announcers in the world – former SWF lead announcer and head booker Peter Michaels. Anderson introduces the new man in the booth, and we're off to the first match without further delay, as is customary here in CZCW.




American Flash v. Chet Chavez

Flash worked really hard to get the crowd interested in this contest, but to very little avail. Chavez evoked very little reaction from them at all, and despite Flash's efforts, he dragged the match down, being off his game, and gassing very early on. Neither man's gimmick seems to be playing well with the crowd, and it could be time for some changes. Flash obviously benefits from his tag partnership with Matt Sparrow, and is more exposed in singles competition. Nevertheless, Flash puts Chavez away with a High Velocity Senton, in what appeared to be an inevitable result.

Winner: American Flash (D-)





Britney Hollywood comes down to the ring, surprisingly on her own, and collects a microphone.

“I'll keep this pretty simple, babes – Willow, send your man out here so I can talk to him.”


Greg Black makes his way out to the ring with a curious look on his face. Like the rest of us he doesn't really know when Britney might have to say beyond last week's little spiel.


He doesn't find out though, as just as he grabs the ropes to lever himself up onto the ring apron, he is attacked from behind by Al Coleman, who proceeds to beat him down, focusing particularly on Black's chest, and putting the final touches on his assault by driving a steel chair into those now-injured ribs, leaving Black lying on the floor in agony as the doctor comes out to attend to him, closely accompanied by Willow.

Britney and Willow face off angrily as they pass in the aisle, and Britney has a nasty smirk on her face as she taunts her fellow manager, but the microphones aren't close enough to pick up what might have been said. (D+)








Jackpot Jordan v. Fernandes Franklin

Slightly better received than the opener, and a slightly better contest, too. Certainly more evenly matched. Both men look as though they are enjoying themselves out there, and at times they get caught up in a game of one-upmanship in who can cheat the better – Jordan uses the ropes a couple of times to assist with pinfall attempts, and is spotted by Pee-wee Germaine, and Franklin responds by trying to use them for additional leverage in a figure four submission attempt, but is also caught in the act.

Jordan is the more fired up as the match progresses though, no doubt still aware of his missing tag partner, and is the one who finishes things around fourteen minutes in with a Cash In neck-breaker that Franklin can't kick out of.

Winner: Jackpot Jordan (D)








We cut to a backstage area where Lance Trueman is awaiting the cue to talk to us.

“Everyone is asking about me and Storm Spillane. Why are you at each others' throats? What's he done to get you riled up? I hear it all the time.

“I had thought that the questions might go away. After all, it's a matter between him and me. But no. You all want to hear what the issue is.

“Well it's pretty straightforward, folks.

“Storm Spillane thinks he's the best thing out there. That he's the next big thing in CZCW. None of you see this, because he goes out there and pretends that he doesn't need to be a flamboyant character and interact with you all; that all the adulation and attention will naturally come his way, just because of what a great athlete he is.”

Trueman looks at the camera with disdain.

“Well it ain't so. Nobody replaces Lance Trueman as the one true star that the girls get behind. They might've made me change my name, but I'm still the California Love Machine whether that's what I'm officially called or not, and I know for sure that it ain't Spillane's name they're all screamin' when they see me in my glory – in the ring or out of it.

“So Spillane, you can back off and get yourself off my territory. Watch and learn, buddy, 'cos this man is the next big thing. You want to make more of it. Fine. We'll do it at CZCW Uprising. But unlike the ladies out there, you won't be screamin' my name, you'll be screamin' in pain!. (D)







Champagne Lover & Fox Mask v. Super Ninja & Dave Wallace

A decent match to showcase the two protagonists for the Coastal Zone title is marred by the obvious lack of co-ordination between Wallace and Ninja, who just don't seem to be able to gel together in this bout.

Lover and Fox Mask dominate for large stretches and seem to be the pairing that is better suited together, despite them having been rivals more often than not. Both also still seem to be learning from watching each other closely – Lover, undoubtedly the star of the match, does a great imitation of Fox Mask's best Fox Hunter finisher, which only fails to win the match because Wallace is too close to the ropes, whilst Fox Mask apes Lover's Lover Stunner, which gets a long two count from Germaine.

Somehow, though, it is Ninja and Wallace that manage to fight through their communication difficulties to pick up the victory. A Ninja Strike on Lover is followed up by a very swift and tight cover that surprises the Coastal Zone Champion, and by a hair's breadth he's unable to beat the count of three that results. Ninja has a knowing look in his eyes as he backs off and celebrates understatedly with Wallace, with one eye on Lover for potential retribution.

Winners: Super Ninja & Dave Wallace (C-)

Overall Show Grade: D+



Author's Notes

3/3 for BHK1978
2/3 for michgcs
1/3 for WilburTrey

Super Ninja needs a little bit of positive momentum heading into the title match... At this point I can't afford for Lover to be burying everyone week-in, week-out ala Triple H, even if he is "the greatest wrestler in the world"...

The backstage environment in CZCW is something of a mix of positive and negative energy. You have the likes of Fox Mask, a real stand-up guy backstage and something of a mentor to guys like Bullseye (which is being played out in our shows), Fernandes Franklin, and Simon Waves, passing on tips on psychology in the ring that make all their matches better for it or hints on how to get the audience to respond better to their promos and interviews. At the other end of the scale you get guys being particularly selfish around others, criticising their colleagues abilities, or otherwise getting on the nerves of other wrestlers or the backstage crew, those who seem to turn up late now and then with the flimsiest of excuses, or who pull tasteless ribs backstage that someone has to sort out afterwards.

Some of it is self-policing, as there is an informal “wrestler's court” where the most respected members of our crew run the rule over minor infractions, leaving the booker and owner only to have to make decisions about more serious offences, or ones that need an outside hand to be involved.

Every time you bring someone new into the locker room, the environment changes slightly – some are good influences on their colleagues, some very bad influences. Friendships and rivalries develop.

So when you bring someone new in that had previously worked with people you already have on the roster, their existing relationship also has an impact on those around them. In this case, Peter Michaels and The Guru have known each other for a long time – Michaels was the booker of SWF during the period that The Guru was under contract there.

That is some cause for disquiet between the two. The Guru still, some seven years after leaving SWF, has something of a chip on his shoulder about the way that he was booked by Michaels back then, thinking that his managerial role was being sidelined by a greater emphasis on pretty girls as valets to the top wrestlers with rather less in the way of actual skills. Whether this was actually Michaels' intent (or indeed even something that was within his remit, given the control that Richard Eisen is known to hold over the booking process) is unclear, but there is some residual tension and it is clear that the two men don't like each other.

As they are going to be sitting in pretty close proximity over coming months at the announce table, this could potentially be a problem. Whilst Michaels is undoubtedly one of the very best announcers around, we can't afford to upset a guy like The Guru – he's one of our most likeable guys backstage, and really puts an effort into making it a harmonious working environment. He's very knowledgeable of the industry and adds a fair deal to the announce desk, as well as being particularly good at amusing us with impressions of his colleagues. Also, his contract is coming up for renewal in the very near future, and you wouldn’t want to upset him to the extent where he refuses to re-sign, and we are scrambling around for a replacement at short notice.

Fortunately, both men seem to be treating things very professionally, and nothing untoward has occurred as yet. There's very little chemistry between any of the announce team, and it may be that the longer term move will be for The Guru to be pulled off the desk and moved back into a managerial role (where he would also be excellent), but in order to do that we would need a replacement colour man, and then time for some rapport to build up between Mr Cliff and Michaels before a new colour guy is introduced... decisions, decisions.

Meanwhile, rumours abound that TCW could be in trouble again, as recent shows have not met expectations...

CZCW Tonight!
Friday 26th February 2016
Preview

Good evening, one and all! CZCW Tonight will be bringing you a special main event this evening, as New York veteran Steve Flash will be joining us for a one-off appearance, courtesy of our agreement with our alliance partners at New York City Wrestling. Flash will team up with our Coatal Zone Championship #1 contender Super Ninja in a non-title tag bout with our current Coastal Zone Tag Team Champions El Jaguar and Tigre.

Also on the show, CZCW stalwart Fox Mask will go one-on-one with Lance Trueman. Expect Fox Mask's protege Bullseye to be ringside for this to continue picking up knowledge from his mentor, and don't be surprised to see Storm Spillane getting himself involved, given his recent problems with Trueman.

We'll hear from Coastal Zone Champion Champagne Lover during the evening as well, ahead of Monday's title match, and American Cobra Jimmy Marvel will face off against youngster Simon Waves in singles competition.

Card for predictions:

Jimmy Marvel vs. Simon Waves

Fox Mask vs. Lance Trueman

Super Ninja & Steve Flash vs. Wild Cats (non-title)
