I loved that show top to bottom! Even if I got a couple of guesses wrong I have to remind myself that Dusty Rhodes is on this roster so he maybe influencing Bret on some of the "Dusty" finishes.

Friendly note to late arrivers: we got onto a new page just a couple of posts after Sin, so you might've missed the fact that it got posted.

It's a good thing I finished a couple of hours ago, because my brain is fried right now...

NEW FIREPRO! FIREPRO! FIREPRO! ONLINE MULTIPLAYER FIREPRO!

Sorry. Had to get that out of my system.

I remember hearing the cruiserwieght didn't like that stage, as they couldn't do their dives to the outside because it was in the way

Satyr24 - You sure? It went away around the time Hogan came, so I've always assumed it was to look more like the WWF.


Another shot of the ramp for those who are curious.

Anyways, loved this "B" PPV. There was just enough to hold on. Disappointed there was no reveal of who the new guy is, but set it up nicely for Superbrawl, leaving many options in the air for Clash of the Champions as well - Booker/Steiner, Booker/RVD, RVD/Rey, RVD/Booker. The highlight was Piper's Pit, just a great great segment to further build and explain the animosity to continue, as well as explain why Candido/TAKA would be with Bischoff.

It wasn't the 1996-2001 cruiserweight division, it was the 92 light heavyweight division. The guys like Pillman and Brad Armstrong.

Good stuff on Sin. Personally I think that if I make it back around to January in my game, I'm likely not going to get rid of most of those PPV names, because I don't care for them. But I have a theme to stay with for now. Anyways, the show reminded me a lot of an In Your House where the results weren't really in much doubt, but we were set for some good action.

Default January 2002: Sin Wrap-up

Not a ton to note from tonight's show.

Evan Karagis was brought before the wrestler's court by Ric Flair, apparently for not shaking his hand. Some would call it an outdated tradition, but I can see where Ric's coming from.

I heaped lots of praise on RVD and The Destroyer for delivering a great main event, and they were both pretty happy about that. I also publicly reprimanded Luger and let him know that continued mediocrity like this wasn't going to be accepted. Lex didn't really react to that. I wonder if he figures his job is safe because he's Sting's buddy. If so, he's wrong.

Corino came to me after the show to request a raise, and I gave him 75% of his requested amount. He was pleased with that decision.

The question about Arn Anderson's negotiation will be factored in on the first PPV after the identity is revealed.

I've decided to slightly modify my plans for the prediction contest schedule. The six month contest to determine the UFS will stay as is, from July through December, but the first six months of the year will now be split into two three month contests. I figure that'll give more people a chance to win something with three annual contests instead of two, and I also think the UFS contest deserves to be longer than the others.

Story time (with Adam Cole baybay): I ran Sin, then immediately there was the headline that NJPW had bought and disbanded AJW. Seeing that note put the idea in my head about going back and buying them out myself, which would help me and also give some of their top talent steady work instead of just being kicked to the curb like NJPW was going to do. Thus I restored the temporary file so I could buy out AJW. Doing so meant I had to redo Sin, which I wasn't exactly thrilled about.

Most of the matches got roughly the same score until we got to the final three. The tag and US title matches both pulled a B+ the first time, but as you saw they fell to a B on the redo. After seeing that I had a very bad feeling about the main event, but obviously that match turned out great. It was an 89, so I guess it was no less than .1 or .01 or whatever the fraction would be to push it into the A range. The first time I ran that match?

B-.

Kudo retired well before the start date of this game. She's currently a road agent in AJPW.

They've actually been faces the entire time, technically. It just didn't seem that way because their only real feud had been with the NBT, who are also faces.

I think it would probably be the best way to handle it too, especially since the AJW women could actually cut promos over in Japan. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like it's going to be an option right away, because none of the broadcasters think I can support a third TV show at my current level. Until I can get my Saturday Night contracts off of the books (which isn't until late in 2002 I think), I guess the women will have to be worked into the Nitro cards somehow.

If Jerry Lawler's the booker, I'm guessing we can expect lots of bra and panties matches from you!

I'm really psyched to see how you handle it going forward! You pretty much have your own female version of NXT. Without opening the game can you send workers down to development for the sole purpose of learning a language? If you can that is what you need to do until you are ready to officially launch it.
No you can't. But that reminds me: I need to get the women signed to written contracts, rather than the PPA deals I inherited from AJW.

I think it's hilarious that Vince put him in a storyline romance with the Bellas based on the idea that it was totally preposterous that either of these women would ever give this stupid nerd the time of day.

And then he married one of them. Take that, Vince!

RIP indeed. I felt kind of bad about buying them out; I'd have preferred for them to stay in business. But it was obviously inevitable, so I figured I might as well make the most of it.

Now that I think about it, the joshi promotions always seem to die quick deaths in Genadi mods. Maybe that's by design?

By the way, that was an amazing PPV and now you're going to let the WWF know that women can be talented as wrestlers and not merely eye candy.
No apologies necessary; I think most everyone has wanted to do that at one point or another!

My performance over popularity product should really benefit the AJW women, who obviously have next to no popularity in the US but are generally fantastic wrestlers. Manami Toyota is the only person in the entire company that the game considers an 'Excellent' in-ring worker.

I'm taking the view that Bret isn't necessarily opposed to interference and screwy finishes to advance storylines, as based on what I've read it seems like that was a hallmark of Stampede. He wants the guys (and now girls) to be skilled in the ring and put on good matches regardless of the nature of the finish, so merely having a great look and charisma isn't enough to take you to the top here. (It obviously helps though!)

I can see how that would be inconvenient, since the three other sides of the ring don't have as much room on the outside.

What if you run events (even a weekly one) with tv showing them. It may hurt your ppv buy rates for a little bit there but it might be a workaround to the issue for now. And if you run in Japan it should still keep your overness up.

Honestly, I'd call it more of a TEW flaw. Companies like AJW and LLPW tend to crap out pretty quick in Hive's mods also. If it were only in Gen's stuff, then I would feel it is something with his mods, but it isn't. I feel it could - could, very possibly - be due to how even though it's been 20 years almost, TEW could look in a mirror and still see a shade of EWR in itself, which was made to be played in the 1998 Attitude Era as the WWF or WCW. Women's wrestling was still just a sideshow then, which means the AI doesn't know what to do with it. A human player can make it work, because we can book to certain strengths that the AI doesn't "think" of, but typically a women's match is likely going to be your "calm the crowd" bout in the WWF. Not saying that there haven't been innovations and fixes like The Bayley Effect, but generally, you're probably just meant to have women on the roster to shoot t-shirts and stand there looking half-naked.

Just a theory. (a game theory.)

Hmm...something to consider.

I'm going with the #2 seed the Agents of Chaos.

I like the Dustin Rhoades factor as the #4 guy over other teams and The Steiners as the tag team is the best tiebreaker in the group.

I was leaning to the Staight Edge Suckas but I'm didn't like the Booker-Chavo tag team for tie-breakers

I was really wanting to put at least one bigger guy on my team but I seen Daniel Bryan (American Dragon) was still an option and I couldn't help myself. The UFS shot AJ Styles up the card last time and I hoped that this would do the same for him!

I think as a team they will gel well if anything. I have to go with my team!
