I have a teenie, tiny request for you to consider, you can obviously ignore it and I will do it on my personal save anyways, but I always found the names “North/South of the Border Pro Wrestling” ridiculous and quite frankly stupid, as they make no sense.
Two of the biggest wrestling communities in the world, with tradition that goes 80+ years back, and you’re telling me their names are centered around the US?
Why on earth will a Canadian and Mexican have their names based on America?

So, if my rant sounds good to you, I’d suggest a rebrand for both companies, something that focuses on Canada and Mexico and not the US.
I have always wondered why they were like that, but I didn't bother to question it. Do you have any name suggestions? The best I can come up with is the Stone Wrestling Association, Stone Family Wrestling, and Internacional Lucha Libre. I'd also need some kinda of logos, and possibly championship belt renders to redesign it.

I thought about it after reading that and "stone family wrestling" was one I thought of lol. I actually like the name north of the border pro wrestling, it's SOTBPW that seems a bit meh now!

Coastal Zone Championship Wrestling


Back in the 1990s, at a time when the SWF's Sports Entertainment product dominated all aspects of American wrestling, people said that a tiny promotion from California couldn't possibly hope to survive by promoting fast-paced matches with lightweight workers. CZCW did it anyway and have now been in business for nearly 30 years. Longtime owner Cliff Anderson retired from the business in 2018 and sold CZCW to billionaire referee Pee-Wee Germaine, who's used his money to help the company in a lot of ways.

Always open to working with others, CZCW have long had strong ties with various lucha libre promotions, and in 2011 were also founding members of the Confederation Of The Territories alongside staunch ally MAW and also NYCW.

CZCW is now more popular across the country. They have 55% popularity in the south west, 30% popularity in the mid-south, 25% popularity in the mid-west, 35% popularity in the north west, and 10% popularity in Puerto Rico and Hawaii. They have a TV deal with a new broadcaster called Luchador Americana, and an events deal with MySelect USA.

Pee-Wee Germaine is the owner. The Guru remains as the booker. They now have $2,500,000 to use, and are ready to rise. While they've lost Donnie J, Rich & Famous, and Frankie Perez, they've gained Remmy Skye, Marc DuBois, Frankie Dee, American Elemental II, and others, Skye and DuBois, motivated by their second chance and being pushed (plus some rehab), are no longer on drugs. Skye is considered the CZCW figurehead.


Coastal Zone Champion: Marc DuBois (since July 2019)
Coastal Zone Xtreme Champion: Onslaught (since August 2019)
Coastal Zone Tag Team Champions: Storm Spillane & Marvel Malloy (since October 2019)

CZCW's roster seems incredible here, Frankie Perez is one of my CV favorites, but it also seems like a lot of problematic workers are part of this roster (DuBois especially), will be interesting to see it shape out with 2.5M though.

As per the companies, graphics wise I am the last person to be able to work anything out, there are many capable graphic makers around and I ain't one
for the names, South could definitely have a universal name, something in English as they are expanding everywhere, Lucha Libre World, Lucha Libre Internacional sound good to me but again, you can find much better people for names than i am

I changed DuBois and Remmy. They're no longer on drugs. I don't know if I changed their personality. Still, they're now marked as reformed, so they should be alright.

Also, most of my graphics come from different threads around the forums. I have some graphics that I might be able to rename SOTBPW, but they aren't exactly right.

New York City Wrestling


NYCW are unapologetically a throwback to an older era. Created by old-school veteran The Stomper, they have changed little since their debut in 1988; to this day, they provide slow paced traditional wrestling with minimal glitz, almost as if caught in a time warp from 1976. While this has stopped them from ever expanding outside of the Tri-State area, their loyal fan base would have it no other way, pointing out that while it may not be glamorous, it is consistently value for money.

The Stomper retired in 2010, handing over the promotion to his chosen successor, Larry Vessey. He has gone with a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" strategy and kept NYCW firmly on their usual old-school course. With Vessey on the verge of retirement, there are rumors that Steve Flash could take over. However, other rumors say Flash wants to start his own company, so NYCW's future is unknown.


With 36% popularity in the Tri-State, they also have 18% popularity in New England, and 15% popularity in the Great Lakes and the Mid Atlantic. They have $500,000.

Referee Michael Bull has retired, and Royce Greig has replaced him. Steve Flash finally retired. The Dynamite Express are in the company, as they're working for 3 companies, becoming the team know across the Indie Scene. Some veterans have been added.

NYCW Empire Champion: Andrew Harper (since September 2019)
NYCW Tri-State Regional Champion: Brutus Milano (since April 2019)
NYCW Tag Team Champions: Dean Waldorf and Marv Statler (since July 2019)

Mid Atlantic Wrestling


Wrestling legend Rip Chord, upon his retirement in 2005, used his own money to set up Mid Atlantic Wrestling. A throwback to the old days of small territorial promotions, the idea behind the company was to provide an evironment where young wrestlers could hone their skills and be prepared for life in the big leagues.

Chord retired in 2011 and handed the promotion and its mission over to his friend, Sam Keith. MAW has continued to go from strength to strength and has an enviable record when it comes to producing top quality talent. Now, as Keith prepares to retire, the company looks to go to referee Jay Fair, although there are some rumors the company could be sold to the SWF and become it's child company.


Mid Atlantic Wrestling are still considered one of the best places for young talent. They've got 28% popularity in the Mid-Atlantic. They now have $250,000. While stars such as Greg Gauge and Roderick Remus have moved on to bigger companies, they've made George Wolfe one of their main people, and I've added a new second generation worker who's just made his debut.


Mid Atlantic Champion: George Wolfe (since January 2019)
Mid Atlantic American Champion: Hammer Hadley (since July 2018)
Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions: Syd Collier & Cameron Jones (since October 2018)
Rip Chord Invitational Winners: George Wolfe (2016), Roderick Remus (2017), Frankie Perez (2018), Gino Montero (2019)
Sam Keith Invitational Winners: The Ring Generals (2016), The Dynamite Express (2017), Thunder & Lightning (2018), The Heartbreak Express (2019)

FREEDOM Caribbean Wrestling


Puerto Rico's first major wrestling organisation, FREEDOM Caribbean Wrestling was created in 2007 by national hero Puerto Rican Power and his close friend Shawn Gonzalez. With the demise of DAVE just a few months earlier they felt that there was a gap in the market and an obvious pool of newly unemployed talent that they could tap into.

The focus of the promotion is on a traditional type of wrestling with strong characters helping draw fans to the arena to see hard-hitting action. Puerto Rican Power's phenomenal popularity is the key to their entire operation however. The tragic death of Shawn Gonzalez in 2011 hit the promotion hard, but they have regrouped since and are continuing to make steady progress. They joined the COTT alliance and are working with promotions in Mexico, and are now the premier promotion in Puerto Rico.

FCW are growing in Puerto Rico. They have broadcasting deals for TV and events on TV Puerto Rico. Carl Batch is now the head booker of the company. Hell's Bouncer and Kirk Jameson are going to USPW, while Bull Wrecker is in SWF. Puerto Rican Power is refusing to retire, as he wants to keep using his star power to build up the company, and is now wrestling less. The company has 48% popularity in Puerto Rico. They have $500,000 to use.

FCW Puerto Rican Champion: Rudy Velasquez (since February 2019)
FCW People's Champion: Leper Messiah (since August 2019)
FCW Tag Team Champions: Carlos Gonzalez and Puerto Rican Power (since May 2019)

You keeping the big 3 (or big 2? Hmmm) for last I see...

Kirk going to USPW is a shame but makes a lot of sense, I thought Bouncer would be a great Japanese star (especially with his Colossus alter ego), but again USPW work for him too

USPW has an inflated roster. Since they're international size, they need about 50 active wrestlers on the roster, so that's about how many I put in there.

Also, I misspoke when talking about him. Hell's Bouncer is actually going to SWF, where he's in a tag team with John Greed. I said he was going to USPW because I wasn't looking at his profile while I was writing it.

The SoCal Wars


Back in October, CJ Weston left GSW following a dispute with Brother Grimm. He then formed ELITE Pro Wrestling and declared war on GSW. Weston also announced he was coming out of retirement and would wrestle in his new promotion. Fans were shocked, and many began to wonder what IPW would do. This question has been answered, because last night Weston got on social media and insulted IPW, Gil Thomas and the workers in the company. This declaration of war has sparked what fans are calling the SoCal Wars. It will be interesting to see the result of this, as this could result in serious consequences for the future of hardcore wrestling in America. Promotion PSW, who has a working agreement with IPW, has said they will not be getting involved in the war. This war is taking place in CZCW's home, but CZCW have said they are not at war with any promotions involved. That may change as time passes.


In October 2019, CJ Weston got into an argument with Brother Grimm, the owner of GSW. Weston, the booker of GSW at the time, disagreed with Grimm over how to book the company. The argument quickly became a shoving contest, which evolved into a brawl. Workers had to separate Grimm and Weston, and Grimm was left with a bloody nose from the scuffle. Weston resigned from the company, but he quickly formed

ELITE Pro Wrestling


In October 2019, GSW booker CJ Weston had a dispute with owner Brother Grimm, leading to Weston leaving the company. Using the tagline "The Bad Boys Of Pro Wrestling", he formed ELITE Pro Wrestling and declared war on GSW and IPW, starting the SoCal Wars.

Based in Los Angeles. they claim to be the most rebellious company of the modern era. ELITE promote a hardcore product with an emphasis on blood, violence and hot girls. Unashamedly controversial, they take perverse delight in crossing the line of good taste and decency as often as possible.

Through their investors, ELITE have strong links to the LA porn scene (there are rumours that most of their investors are actually porn companies), and often flaunt that by having performers make cameos on their shows.

Making a company more risque than any of the old East Coast Promotions, he partnered with several porn companies in the area, and formed his vision of chaos. Using an integrated roster, ELITE Pro Wrestling is the only active promotion in the world where men fight women. They also don't use a tag division.

Their roster includes two stolen GSW alumni: Aces High and Busta Capp. They hired the legendary Dread as their road agent. A number of young talent is on the roster, including Texas Hangman, Marie Punnen, Lucas Danger, Kid Fantastic, and Brimstone. They also have former backyard wrestlers like G Force and Extreme Deluxe. Joker The Pimp and Hustler D provide commentary.

Aces High is dating Marie Punnen. Capp and High have bad relationships with Cali Slick and Grimm for leaving the company.

ELITE Champion: Citizen X (since December 2019)
ELITE SoCal Champion: Texas Hangman (since December 2019)
ELITE Inter-Gender Champion: Marie Punnen (since December 2019)

Meanwhile, the other side of this war involves:

Invincible Pro Wrestling


The Californian promotion Invincible Pro Wrestling was set up in 2011 by three unlikely partners - Gil Thomas brought financial muscle to the table, Nemesis was the booking brains and link to the wrestling community, and the rapper Brother Grimm provided media savvy, image, and his club (The Warehouse) as the base of operations.

After a successful first year, things turned ugly in mid 2012 when Grimm became unhappy that his ideas weren't being used often enough and quit, not only setting up a rival promotion (Grimm SoCal Wrestling) but also stealing several members of the IPW roster, kick-starting a war. Years later, following a dispute within GSW, ELITE was formed, and declared war on both GSW and IPW. IPW have continued to thrive however, not least because of the booking genius of Nemesis.

IPW are considered the future of West Coast hardcore. They have a working agreement with PSW. IPW now have a war in their company between a stable of cowboys and a stable of army men. Desert Storm, Sgt. Bubba Lee West, and The Silencer are the Army of Hardcore, while The Outlaw, Cowboy Buck Winchester, and Texas Pete are The Texas Outlaws. Ash Campbell has also come to the promotion, but he continues to work in PSW. Ash has the gimmick of being the boss's favorite in IPW, and Buzz Reid has been added to be his bodyguard.

IPW Champion: Ash Campbell (since October 2019)
IPW Californian Champion: Buzz Reid (since August 2019)
IPW Tag Team Champions: Cowboy Buck Winchester and The Outlaw (since April 2019)

The final part of this war involves:

Grimm SoCal Wrestling


The high-profile Californian rapper and well known wrestling fan Brother Grimm got his first taste of the business when he joined up with Gil Thomas and Nemesis to form Invincible Pro Wrestling in 2011. Although initially a success, Grimm fell out with his partners over the creative direction of the company; feeling disrespected, he quit and promptly formed his own company, Grimm SoCal Wrestling.

Grimm SoCal Wrestling operates in a very similar way to IPW and has been helped enormously by Grimm's media contacts and urban appeal. They run all of their shows out of Grimm's infamous Warehouse club, which adds a unique atmosphere. In late 2019, an argument with booker CJ Weston led to Weston leaving and forming ELITE Pro Wrestling, starting the SoCal Wars. Unsurprisingly, there is a high level of animosity towards IPW and ELITE.

Following Weston leaving and taking Capp and High with him, Grimm began booking the company himself. Cali Slick remains loyal to Grimm and because of that, Grimm is pushing him hard. Grimm is determined to end IPW and ELITE and any cost, and has told all GSW employees that anyone who jumped ship to either company wouldn't be allowed back in, and Grimm would make sure they couldn't find work elsewhere.

GSW American Champion: Cali Slick (since November 2019/Won in tournament after Aces High left, making the belt vacant)
GSW King of California Winners: Busta Capp (2016), Aces High (2017), Cali Slick (2018), Aces High (2019)
GSW West Coast Champion: Cheech Kong (since January 2019)
GSW Tag Team Champions: Drop Kix and E-Soteric (since June 2019)


Now, with the SoCal Wars only three months in, fans speculate who will come out of this as the dominant company in West Coast Hardcore. Fans believe CZCW could get involved one day if they lose one of their workers to one of the companies, but for now CZCW hasn't come under attack. Only time will tell what will happen when the dust settles, and the winner of the SoCal Wars are declared.

Pittsburgh Steel Wrestling


DAVE's demise in April 2007 hit many people hard, but it was far from unexpected - there had been signs of their coming closure for years in advance. Mitch Naess, Phil Vibert's protege and the long time voice of DAVE, therefore had a lot of time to plan ahead in case the worst did happen, and that is how Pittsburgh Steel Wrestling came to be.

The concept was simple; to start again and to repeat the formula that had worked first time around, but to avoid the traps that DAVE fell into. Naess, aided by a number of DAVE alumni, thus began the mission to try and succeed where DAVE failed....and to complete the revolution.


PSW hasn't changed much since 2016. They've grown in popularity, but are still about mid-regional sized. Logan Wolfsbaine and Nelson Callum have left the company for bigger places. A former USPW worker now works there. Sayeed Ali, who works for 4C and UCW, also works for PSW. PSW has a working agreement with IPW and WEXXV.


PSW Champion: Sayeed Ali (since June 2019)
PSW National Champion: Teddy Powell (since April 2019)
PSW Tag Team Champion: Grandmaster Phunk and Greg Black (since March 2019)

Thanks. I thought it up while doing thinking about the East Coast Wars. I decided I wanted some new hardcore based scenario to happen, so I planned to either make the West Coast Wars, or make two rival hardcore alliances. I was starting to do the latter plan, but by the time I finished Canada I decided against it and undid what little work had been done on that and began working on the West Coast Wars.

Angel Athletic Association


Set up in 1996 by Anne Stardust, the Angel Athletic Association were for many years the only place in the US where decent women's wrestling could be found. Although QAW and the USPW women's division have since added to that, AAA remain one of the best places to work for female wrestlers.

Almost exclusively active in the North West, where they have a devoted fan base, AAA have always resisted expanding any further, seemingly content to continue with their comfortable existence rather than taking a risk and aiming for much larger profits. In 2015 Catherine Quine took over the company and looked to change that long-time approach. She began working agreements with NOTBPW and 5SSW, joined the Women's Championship Wrestling alliance, and has helped the company gain popularity in Canada.

AAA are still regional sized, but now have 30% popularity in the MidWest and SouthWest. They have 45% popularity in the NorthWest. They're trying to expand into Canada, with 7% popularity in British Columbia. Cherry Bomb has retired and is a road agent for the company. They've added young workers such as Gypsy Rose, Joanna Silver, Glorious Gloria, and Sandra Shine. One of their best alumni, Belle Bryden, left USPW and has returned to AAA to end her career with them under her old Wanda Fish name.

AAA Femme Fatale Champion: Wanda Fish (since February 2019)
AAA Top Contender's Champion: Gypsy Rose (since October 2019)
AAA Tag Team Champions: Talina Quinzel and Selina Svelte (since August 2019)
