Default Unstoppable STAMPEDE - Sept 2019 Draft Fed

The year was 2018. The first lawsuit came in Australia, of all places. Employment laws were very clear. Wrestlers could not be treated as contractors; they were, retroactively, employees. Within a year, every other major market followed suit. The settlements bankrupted every federation in existence. A few managed to sell their name and properties, but most were simply gone.

This left a major vacuum. Eleven federations across the world prepared to launch within the year. The battle for talent looked to be cutthroat. That is, until the idea of a draft was floated.

It happened.

All 11 federations agreed to the draft. All willing wrestlers and other workers, even former owners, were part of a huge mix of talent to be drafted. Random order, snake draft, 40 rounds. After that? To each their own.

This is the story of the rebirth of the old, in the age of the new.

This is the story of Stampede Wrestling.

Hi,

Iím Arda Ocal, host of Aftermath.

With the rise of 11 new wrestling federations, weíre back with analysis of the biggest Canadian federation, STAMPEDE. Join us every week for detailed reports, and in-depth analysis.

Weíll touch on some of the other ten companies as well, but STAMPEDE is the return of a Canadian institution so it will be our focus.

Joining me on the panel will be, comic legend (and wrestling superfan) Jon Stewart, and legendary manager the Sensational Sherri.

Weíll have clips, match recaps, feud analysis, and more. Expect extra-long specials for monthly Pay-Per-View specials. As you may know, all of STAMPEDEís shows will be on DirecTV, and also available on NetFlix Europe.

Join us for our premiere, right after STAMPEDEís debut weekly PPV, STAMPEDE Forever.

Exclamation

You won't be able to withstand the mighty WS X with its unbeatable mix of women who look good but can't wrestle and it's Exotico horde.

Arda Ocal, here with a quick update.

With the dust of the draft settled, it's become obvious Stampede is far and away the success story. A true international giant, backed by some of the biggest names in the business today, Stampede is already looking to add global media coverage and add even more tag teams to its already impressive roster.

The debut show is coming up fast... it's going to be a wild ride.

Intriguing premise, and very cool roster - nice drafting! Good luck with this.

ARDA
Welcome to Aftermath, Iím Arda Ocal and with me are the Sensational Sherri and Jon Stewart.

JON
Hi.

SHERRI
Iím thrilled to be here.

ARDA
The show opened with John Cena, back in his doctor of Thuganomics dress, and style. In a rap, he revealed he was expecting two things tonight. One was a shot at a title, and the other was to know who his assigned tag team partner was.
The answer to the second was immediately revealed as The Rock entered to thunderous applause. Neither Cena or The Rock were happy to be paired, but, as it looked like it was going to come to blows, the two were interrupted in turn.
Randy Orton and Chris Jericho burst on the scene, making their usual claims to be the best. They also made it clear they had CHOSEN to be a team, not been forced together.
Lastly, Orton revealed there would be a title match tonight. But not for the tag titles, that will have to wait. Instead, Stampedeís only singles title, the Better Man belt would be on the line. Though Stamped is focused on tag team wrestling, sometimes you have to settle who the better man in the team is.
And tonight, in the main event, Orton revealed he would be facing Cena. Cena was overjoyed and raring to go, vowing he would prove he was the best man in the arena.
(Segment rating 100)

SHERRI
This was such a good start to the show.

JON
A promo like this makes you sit up and pay attention. I canít think of a better beginning to a new era. Four of the best in the business on stage at once.

ARDA
Up next, the first match in Stampedeís revival. The New Day, specifically Kofi Kingston and Big E, took on the reunited Kingdom, Matt Taven and Mike Bennett.

JON
That surprised me. Thatís a lot of faith to put in the Kingdom. Obviously, someone has to do the first job of the era, but Mike not only doesnít get to work with his wife anymore, he also has to eat the first ever pin.

SHERRI
Can I just say, New Day Rocks! The chemistry between Woods and the others just shines off the screen.
(Segment Rating 76)

ARDA
Another match right away saw The New Hart Foundation taking on the Bro-Mans. Thoughts?

JON
Ok.

SHERRI
I liked Davey Boy Smithís Running Powerslam that got the pin on Robbie E.

ARDA
This was the low point of the show so far.
(Segment rating 60)
Next, we finally got to see Bret Hart coming out to show his obvious pride that his fatherís dream was alive again. Of course, he had to be interrupted. And this time, it was Eric Bischoff-

JON
Heís not booking, right?

ARDA
No, purely on-screen.

JON
Thank heavens.

SHERRI
Bischoff is a smart guy. With Rhino at his side, I can see him going far.
(Rating 73)

ARDA
The new team of Ultimo Ninja and Garza Jr., known as Mi Familia, clashed with the Rhodes Scholars. They looked good even in a loss.

SHERRI
But it wasnít a very good match.

JON
I have to agree. And really Ultimo Ninja was the worst guy in the match.
(Rating 65)

ARDA Next, Petey Williams and Shawn Spears, BLAME CANADA, teamed up for the first time and, well, it didnít go well.

JON
Bad chemistry is, well, bad.

SHERRI
I didnít realize Pepper Parks and Rene Dupree were even on the roster.

ARDA
It was a one-night deal.
(Segment rating: 52)

Up next was a few minutes of The Big Show and The Undertaker, tagging again for the first time in a long time, basically looked scary.

JON
Theyíre still good at it.

SHERRI
Always room for big scary people in the spectacle that is professional wrestling.
(Segment rating 88)

ARDA
Steenerico, the authentic Steenerico, took down Jay Lethal and Sanjay Dutt.

JON
Should these guys really be heels? I mean Steen works well either way, but Generico is a born face when he uses that gimmick. Heís not totally convincing.

SHERRI
I agree. Steen was head and shoulder over the others in this match. And Generico using the tights to win made him look somewhat weak.

JON
Sonjay struggled too. He just wasnít standing up to the others tonight.
(Segment rating 88)

ARDA
Not much to say about the triple tag match. The American Wolves outlasted Titus Worldwide and Natural Selection.

JON
Somebody give Shaun Richter some mic time.
(Segment rating 71)

ARDA
Thoughts on the singles match between Shawn Hernandez and Eddie Kingston?

SHERRI
I thought they played well off each other. But really, it was bad wrestling the audience didnít care about. Better luck next time.

ARDA
In a moment dear to my heart, Bobby Roode and Eric Young reunited as Team Canada. Theyíre heels again.

JON
Iíd call it glorious, but those days are over.

SHERRI
Trouble is, it was a bland an predictable promo. Arda, since youíre Canadian Iíll forgive you liking them. Jon, whatís your excuse?

JON
UmmmÖ I like Bobbyís moustache?
(Segment rating 58)

ARDA
And, at long last, the main event. Sherri, your thoughts?

SHERRI
Superb.

ARDA
Jon?

JON
You bet your bippy it was.

ARDA
I canít disagree either. I was a little surprised to see Randy Orton tap to the STF. You would not expect a submission from a major heel on the very first night of the companyís existence.

JON
I disagree; I think they needed a big shock. And Cena with the Better Man title means heíll give out opportunities like candies. Possibly even more open challenges.
(Segment Rating 83)

(Show rating 84)

ARDA
Overall? A good show, but maybe not as good as they need to be. Turns out Direct TV wasnít as happy with the buy rates as theyíd expected to be.

SHERRI
The ring work is lacking a bit. Many of the wrestlers are past their peak, and that never helps.

JON
This company bills itself as performance first, yet theyíre really playing up their stars.

SHERRI
Including some really old stars, Undertaker is in his 50s for crying out loud.

ARDA
One of the advantages of a tag team focus is every team only grows in experience every week. I think this company has a ton of potential.

JON
Agreed.

SHERRI
I still have high hopes.

ARDA
Thatís all for this episode, weíll be back after Stamped episode two, the second last episode before Stampede Hart Foundations, the first major show Stampede will put on.

Stampede Forever, Episode 2

ARDA
Welcome back to Aftermath. Another Stampede wrestling Pay Per View, another chance to sit down with the Sensational Sherri and Jon Stewart. Jon give us a joke.

JON
Comedians hate when you do that.

ARDA
I donít get it.

SHERRI
Can we get on with this?

ARDA
We opened with John Cena, the new Better Man Champion.

JON
I noticed The Rock was not with him.

ARDA
Johnís promo was old school rap, again.

CLIP

CENA
They said I was washed up
And I didnít matter
I say they should step up
And their noses Iíll shatter

Iím take on all comers,
Iíll face anyone.
Defending this title
Is my idea of fun.

So here I am,
And Iíll make it clear.
Iíve said it before:
The champ is here!

ARDA
Ortonís music hit next. He and Jericho showed up and demanded he face them in a handicap match for the title. They promised to work together and share, not like him and his corporate mandated partner, The Rock.

SHERRI
Speak his name and he shall appear.

JON
Rock cut a hell of a promo too.

ARDA
Still, ďThe Rock and Jorts Connection,Ē seriously?

SHERRI
Iíve heard worse. And people didnít think Mankind and The Rock would work together either, at least, not at first.

ARDA
To end it all, Bret appeared on the screen and, calmly and efficiently, announced a tag match between them in the main event of Hart Foundations.

(Segment rating 88)

ARDA
We got to some action next. The New Hart Foundation taking on Team Canada.

JON
I was surprised Team Canada went over. I hope Bret doesnít just push his friends and family.

SHERRI
How good was Bobby Roode in this match? He shone.

(Segment rating 71)

ARDA
Steenericoís confrontation with New Day set up the main event tag match to crown the first ever Kings of the Rodeo.

SHERRI
I expected better.

JON
El Generico just doesnít work as a heel.

(Segment rating 65)

ARDA
Next we had some really subpar matches. Natural Selection beat ACH & Rich Swan. Cheating, not that surprising.

SHERRI
Bro-Mans beat Mi Familia, Garza Jr. and Ultimo Ninja. People are high on Ultimo Ninja, but he struggled here.

(Segment rating) 58

JON
Next The Dudleys wreslted. And, you know something, the wrestling was ok. Tomasso Ciampa and Rhino did their share too.

ARDA
Bully gets the win here.

(Segment rating 71)

ARDA
Jay Lethal and Sanjay Dutt vs Bram and Eddie Kingston wasnít great. But it wasnít the worst of the night.

SHERRI
Lethalís win was all well and good, because he was the star here.

(Segment rating 66)

ARDA
Eric Bishoff, with Rhino backing him up, tried to recruit The Undertaker and Big Show into joining his faction.

JON
I thought they were going to bury them.

SHERRI
Rhino is a really menacing man. But he gets blown away by the other two.

(Segment rating 88)

ARDA
The midcard plodder alongwith Titus Worldwide beating The Kingdom.

SHERRI
As talented as Matt Taven is, heís really low on the totem pole here. Him taking the pin may be a sign of things to come.

(Segment rating 60)

ARDA
The next match helped. The wrestling at least.
JON
I trust the American Wolves and BLAME CANADA to put on a good show. Hopefully it gets them noticed.

SHERRI
Eddie Edward submitting Petey Williams made it a decisive win.

(Segment rating 73)

ARDA
Up next, The Rhodes Scholars took on LAX in a match that could have been better.

SHERRI
Shawn Hernandez is past his prime, it showed here.

(Segment rating 67)

JON
Rhodes scholars got some mic time too. They were smug, arrogant and superior. I loved it.

(Segment rating 78)

ARDA
The main event was easily the best match on the show.

SHERRI
I liked Steenerico going over New Day.

JON
They cheated of course, like rich people cheat taxes.

ARDA
Finally, a joke.

SHERRI
So there you have it. No more vacant titles.

ARDA
It will be interesting to see how Hart Foundations turns out, but we still have the go to show first.

(Show rating 83)

Liking it so far. STAMPEDE is definitely the powerhouse in my game. I started a WS_X Dynasty and cut and pasted your intro (with credit to you) as I like the internal consistency of the world description. Your Dynasty and mine are taking different tacks with how they are set up and I quite like the idea of presenting it as a review package - I've gone for the more standard breakdown of the show - I haven't bothered about scoring the show or segments because at small size the numbers look bad even though every show gets an awesome reaction (because it's so far above what was expected for that size). Lets face if you put the Miz on an indy show he's going to get a big reaction.

ARDA
News flash!
Stampede became the latest in a string of wrestling companies to fall out of favor with DirecTV. Ratings and star power just haven't quite been there for a lot of ambitious companies who took advantage of DirecTV's initial rush of enthusiasm over the new era of professional wrestling.

Stampede has moved to an earlier time slot, leaving much of the show outside of prime time. This is a blow to Stampede, but nowhere near as bad as losing the deal entirely.

STAMPEDE Forever 3

ARDA
Welcome to Aftermath as we head into STAMPEDE Hart Foundations.

JON
Hey.

SHERRI
Hi, sexy boy.

ARDA
Letís get right to it with John Cenaís open challenge.

SHERRI
I really like Cody Rhodes getting a title shot already.

JON
And Aaron Stevens was really entertaining. Though not compared to The Rock when he came out. Rock as referee for the main event seemed a bit odd, you would think he'd íe too biased.

ARDA
He swore to call it down the line.

(Segment rating 82)

ARDA
Now, is The New Hart Foundation already being overpushed?

SHERRI
I wouldnít say that.

JON
Another win this time out.

SHERRI
Over the Bro-Mans. Thatís hardly epic competition.

(Segment rating 64)

ARDA
Not much to say about Natural Selection beating the OGz.

JON
Shaun Richter just strikes me as someone who could be a star. And I wish he were being showcased more.

SHERRI
Perfectly acceptable wrestling, I suppose.

(Segment rating 63)

ARDA
Now, Eric Bischoff continues to try to recruit The Undertaker and Big Show.

SHERRI
Bischoff is playing dirty, as usual. Implying theyíre too old and scared to even step into a ring anymore.

ARDA
Which meant The Unholy Alliance, I love that name for them, demanded a match tonight.

SHERRI
The question became, would it be a train wreck?

ARDA
It seems like every week we struggle to get everyone on the card. So we end up with 8-man tags and the like.

JON
Itís like Smackdown with Teddy Long in charge.

ARDA
Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt get to team with the Dudley Boys. That has to be some kind of dream come true.

SHERRI
Really though, the other side had a lot more to gain from winning. Bram, Eddie Kingston, Matt Taven and Mike Bennet may find themselves losing a lot more than winning if they canít break out somehow.

(Segment rating 67)

ARDA
Eric Young and Bobby Roode, Team Canada as we Canadians proudly call it, beat ACH and Rich Swann. Thoughts?

SHERRI
About as good as the match before it. Typical for TV, nothing special?

JON
Young getting the pin was what Iíd expect. And I think the crowd was less than impressed with ACH.

ARDA
The ďWho are you?Ē chants were downright cruel.

(Segment rating 68)

SHERRI
Do we know if the New Day cooking segment is going to be a regular thing?

JON
It was more of an eating segment.

ARDA
As much as I like to see Big E covered in powdered sugar, these guys should be doing more.

JON
Thereís not much in the way of ongoing stories on these shows so far. Will that change?

ARDA
I think the company is still up in the air on how much entertainment and how much wrestling they truly want to be.

(Segment rating 81)

ARDA
Eric Bischoff managing Tomasso Ciampa and Rhino makes a formidable force.

JON
Shawn Spears and Petey Williams found that out the hard way.

SHERRI
I know this show is about tag teams, but these guys do not work well together.

ARDA
Experience could help.

SHERRI
Maybe in a year or more. Is it worth waiting?

(Segment rating 67)

ARDA
The American Wolves being back in action just fills my heart with joy.

JON
I have a candy heart, like Raggedy Anne.

SHERRI
I felt bad for Titus Worldwide having to face them. The Wolves outclassed hem in and out of kayfabe.

(Segment rating 75)

JON
I liked Steen and Generico picking on fans at concession.

SHERRI
El Generico is a bad heel. I will try not to harp on it forever, but itís going to be an issue until he gets better, or turns.

(Segment rating 74)

ARDA
And, at long last The Undertaker and Big Show end up facingÖ Mi Familia, Garza Jr and Ultimo Ninja.

SHERRI
It was bad, but not absolutely awful.

JON
Take a couple of springy dudes, have them bounce off the big guys, get caught, get tossed around. Simple formula, but the outcome was never in question.

(Segment rating 57)

ARDA
As for the main event, what did you think Sherri?

SHERRI
I donít want to say it was a bad match. The Rockís role as referee was handled really well. And a DQ finish means itís far from settled who the better man is.

JON
John keeps the Better Man title.

(Segment rating 76)

ARDA
Now the aftermath was interesting.

SHERRI
Rhodes Scholars attack Cena, Rock saves him, Orton and Jericho run in and help destroy Rock and Cena, then turn on Cody and Stevens and level them too.

JON
It makes for a lot of action, and a lot of questions. Who is the dominant team in Stampede anyway?

(Segment rating 83)

ARDA
Coming up next? Hart Foundations, the first big show of the new era.

(Show rating 76)
