Friday, week 3




ESE Eternal Storm
San Juan High School (Puerto Rico)
Attendance: 300


ANGLE:


Show starts with Cobra, Texas Hangman, and third guy whoīs quickly identified as Logan Wolfsbaine in the ring. Cobra does the talking for the trio, telling audience that he has been a loner for all his life and thatīs what he would prefer as snakes need no company, but nature often forces you to adapt into differend conditions or becoming extinct and thatīs what heīs doing here. You see, he did thought that Regular Joe was done for, that he had been beaten and that all that was needed was to give a mercy kill but he failed to do that as when cornered, even less dangerous creatures could put up a big fight. So, while pontering his loss he has come into conclusion that while snakes do prefer to work alone, he needs to set that aside and steal a page from books of other predators like wolfs and lions who always hunt in packs. For that end, he started to search other likely minded souls, fellow predators who are hungry for success and he did found two. For this day forward, the trio will be known simply as Predators because thatīs what they are, and they declare hunting season to open with Regular Joe being their first prey. E+

Notes: Logan debuted Enforncer gimmick with Below average rating.


2 vs. 2
& vs. &
Garry The Entertainer & Nate DeMarcus vs. Mad Dog Mortimer & Hurakan

In a poor match, Garry The Entertainer and Nate DeMarcus defeated Mad Dog Mortimer and Hurakan in 8:19 when Garry The Entertainer defeated Hurakan by pinfall with a Pants Pull Sunset Flip.
Notes: DeMarcus debuted Happy-go-lucky gimmick with above average rating
Performance: DeMarcus: E+, Garry: D-, Mortimer: E-, Hurukan: E-
WINNERS: Garry The Entertainer & Nate DeMarcus by pinfall in 8:19 E+


1 vs. 1
vs.
Regular Joe vs. Kirk Drury

Forgot to copy paste the match report... again.
Notes: Joe and Drury were both really off their games
Performance: Joe: E, Drury: E-
WINNER: Regular Joe by pinfall in 6:36 E


ANGLE:


Joe doesnīt get to celebrate his victory as heīs attacked by Logan Wolfsbaine who proceeds to beat Joe down. E+


1 vs. 1
vs.
Freedom Eagle vs. Outlaw Wes Revell

In a bout that had a decent reaction from the crowd but sub-par wrestling, Outlaw Wes Revell defeated Freedom Eagle in 6:31 by pinfall.
Notes: -
Performance: Eagle: E-, Revell: D-
WINNER: Outlaw Wes Revell by pinfall in 6:31 E+



1 vs. 1 for King of the Network belt

vs.
Quentin Queen vs. Whitehorse Whittaker

In a decent match, Quentin Queen defeated Whitehorse Whittaker in 12:18 by pinfall with a Q-Ball. Quentin Queen makes defence number 1 of his ESE King of the Network title.
Notes:
Performance: Queen: D-, Whittakar: D-
WINNER: Quentin Queen by pinfall in 12:18 D-


ANGLE:


Queenīs celebration is cut short with Smooth interrupting, telling Queen that he has to be the luckiest man in the world as he managed to beat Smooth last month but lightning wonīt strike twice into same spot and Smooth will cash his rematch clause soon so Queen should enjoy his short time as champion because the belt is going to come back to Smooth really soon. D+


Show Rating: E+

Comments: Well, we still got the same E+ even though our matches werenīt great. Booking wise, the firs thing I booked on this was the Revell vs. Eagle match which I very much expected to be Eagleīs last as I expect him to no-sell again and plan to call him out on a post show and fire him after I have told him he couldnīt sell ice cream in Sahara with his selling skills but of course he decided to behave this show so I had no good reason to fire him and now I have to figure out what to do with him (also, American Elemental II who I planned to be the replament got signed into RIPW with development deal so itīs back to drawing board with this one). Eagle is still going to be out the next time he no-sells which I expect to happen soon but that just leaves the problem of what I do with the storyline between him and Revell since I canīt trust him to behave? Next match that was booked was the tag match as I wanted to check if Garry and Nate had any bad chemistry notes before pulling the trigger on them forming a team. At first I planned it to be dark match with Hangman and Wolfsbaine as opponents. Garry and Nate would have won thanks to them having higher popularity and thatīs the main reason why I planned it to be a dark match as I felt it would hurt Predators if they instantly lose to essentially a random pairing. However, in the end, I decided to put the tag match into main show instead and replace Hangman and Wolfsbaine as whatever they have chemistry or not wouldnīt really affect my plans with them that much anyway. I also decided that I wanted Cobra to form his group straight at this show and that Logan should attack Joe in order to set a 1 vs. 1 match between the two soon (Logan and Hangman should had been also added into the storyline between Cobra and Joe but I forgot, they were added after the show). Opponents for Joe and in the tag match werenīt that important other than I knew that the three guys who were there were the ones I wanted to take the losses. Oddly enough, the main event (and the angle afterwards) was the last segments that I put into this card which is bit unusual but thatīs just how the show worked with DeMarcus and Wolfsbaineīs addition into roster inspiring me to figure a way to debut them first while Eagleīs bad behavior made me to figure a way to wrap up the storyline so I can kick him out. Anyway, the main event itself was basically "the first defence" match so not much chance on title change there. Whitthorse was chosen as the opponent mainly by progress of elimination as since that match was a main event, it needed to be decently over performer and out of the four main heels, Revell was already on the card, Queen has simmering tension with Cobra (plus loss there wouldnīt be particularly impressive right after forming a new group) while Austin is the current feud partner and they just fought in last show so basically Whitthorse was the most logical opponent I could put there. I praised Revell, Queen and Smooth at the end, Revell for draging Eagle into watchable match and Queen and Smooth for their angle mainly because no-one else didnīt to anything above their current standards. Also, after the show I found out that Jazz Funk and Dana OīHara donīt come along all that well, this is bad news for Funk as heīs more expentable out from the two.

Popularity check time again:
main event: Smooth: 23, Queen: 24, Seth: 19, Silencer: 24
upper midcard: Jolson: 18, Revell: 18, Joe: 18, Whittaker: 17
midcard: Cobra: 17, Eagle: 17, Garry: 17, Drury:13, Mortimer: 17, DeMarcus: 17
lower midcard: Deuce: 12, Hurakan: 12, Funk: 10, Hangman: 11
Opener: Night: 8, Wolfsbaine: 4

Can I note that Iīm really starting to get tired of seeing Seth still on main event push despite him not tecnically working for us for bit over six monthīs now? Sure way to make everyone realize that Iīm not getting anywhere with popularity gains, isnīt it? Also, Smooth, Queen and Silencer being so far above anyone else makes me slighly uneasy as well since one loss to someone else would likely send them spiraling down all the way to 17 popularity while only benefiting point or two for the winner, thus essentially meaning that I shoudnīt put anyone over them unless I want to lose rest of the meager progress that I have managed to make. That aside, nothing really happened elsewhere with Drury and Hurukan being only ones that gained anything and those were pretty much given. Oh well, itīs not like I expected any popularity gains on this one either so no harm done. We also got more backstage troubles between this and next show as apperantly Jules Night and Cobra ainīt liking each otherīs anymore... yeah, guess whoīs going to leave is things turn sour (hint, it ainīt Cobra). On finances, itīs yet another 1219$ loss but at least we are managing ot keep the losses around 1000 - 2000$ range instead of the 3000 - 4000$ that they were not too long ago. On contract news, Mortimerīs contract is coming into end after next show and I donīt plan to offer him another one so his three year stay with us is at the end while on happier contract news, Kirk Drury got and signed and contract offer from FCW, potentially helping his career with us too (assuming they remember to use him every now and then.)

Before I start I want to say big thanks for DAVEFAN95 on nominating this into diary of the month. I know the nomination happened a while ago but I wasnīt paying attention and only found out now.


October 2018
Friday, week 3




ESE Eternal Storm
San Juan High School (Puerto Rico)
Attendance: 300


2 vs. 2

& vs. &
Freedom Eagle & Dustin Deuce vs. Outlaw Wes Revell & Kirk Drury

In a poor match, Kirk Drury and Outlaw Wes Revell defeated Dustin Deuce and Freedom Eagle in 8:29 when Outlaw Wes Revell defeated Freedom Eagle by submission.
Notes: Eagle and Deuce have great chemistry together
Performance: Eagle: E, Deuce: E, Revell: E+, Drury: E
WINNERS: Outlaw Wes Revell & Kirk Drury by pinfall in 8:29 E+


1 vs. 1
vs.
Nate DeMarcus vs. Mad Dog Mortimer
In a bout that had a decent reaction from the crowd but terrible wrestling, Nate DeMarcus defeated Mad Dog Mortimer in 6:28 by pinfall with a Snap Tackle.
Notes: DeMarcus was off his game
Performance: DeMarcus: E+, Mortimer: E-
WINNER: Nate DeMarcus by pinfall in 6:28 E


ANGLE:


After his match, DeMarcus calls Garry into the ring. Garry does answer the call and DeMarcus tells Garry that they worked together really well last month and Garry felt like a friendly, fun loving person so he suggest that he and Garry should form a permanent team as itīs always more fun to have friends around. Garry agrees that it would be cool to have more friends than just his monkey but before he agrees, he needs to know if heīs monkey can join. Nate tells that of course the monkey can join, after all, the more the merrier right and hey, maybe the monkey could be their manager? Garry thinks thatīs a great idea and the pair... or trio, goes backstage together chatting lively while they go. D


ANGLE:


Before his match, Regular Joe comes into ringside and address Predators, telling that he have beaten both Cobra and Hangman before and will now prove that he gan beat Logan as well. And if Cobra things that bringing some goons to help him would make Joe scared, heīs wrong as while he is just an ordinary men, it is usually the ordinary men and women who will rise on the occasion when needed. So, while the numbers will be against him, he will continue to fight against Predators and will show the same determination and skills that made him the first ever King of the Network champion. D

Notes:
Performance: Queen: D, Silencer: D+ Cobra: D
WINNER: Quentin Queen by pinfall in 14:37 D+


Show Rating: E+

Comments: I decided to back bit more into this show than usual with 5 matches and three angles (was supposed to be three angles since there was ment to be an angle between Smooth and Queen after the main event were Smooth would tell that he cashes the rematch clause at next show but I forgot to book it thus not advancing the main storyline at all... idiot!), mainly because I want to give all of my guys exposure and some of them arenīt currently used all that much. I probably could extent the show for half an hour but that would mean extra expenses so right now, Iīm staying with 1h shows mainly because it actually allows me to have longer shows anyway if I so decide. Crowd also expected more angles on the show... yeah no comments.

Other than my incompotence on following notes (quite salty on myself about missing that angle), I wanted Queen to get another good quality title defence under his belt before facing Smooth again. Smoothīs tag match was last addition on this card and was mainly done to give other three members bit of in-ring time, Smooth just happened to be available and was thrown in mostly in hopes that he would drag the rating up a bit (it was semi-main event after all). Other than that, job Freedom Eagle tour continued, this time with a tag loss and I really hoping he no-selled that match on purpose so I can get rid of him. And yes, I know I could get rid of him at any rate but I like to be fair so as long as he doesnīt have backstage incitend that warrants contract termination or clearly hurt the match ratings on purpose heīs staying on board. The problem is that heīs on a storyline (Iīm really cursing myself on putting him there) and I donīt really want to end it as I feel that Revell needs to win a storyline (after all, why would anyone hire him if he just keeps losing?) but on the same time, I cannot trust Eagle to behave and thus Iīm unwilling to make plans past the current show so right now (meaning itīs hard to do any set-up angles for bigger match or really to have any type of coherent storyline). This has curretly created a pattern were Revell have beaten (or distracted and caused a loss that way) Eagle each and every show and that just doesnīt do much storyline wise. Speaking of storylines, Joe and Logan made the obvious clash after last monthīs attack this show, I was considering waiting a bit for that but decided that a) Logan doesnīt have enough popularity to be creditable threat to Joe right now and b) Cobra is still the main opponent for Joe so no need to milk a match against guy whoīs essentially a henchman. DeMarcus against Mortimer was mainly there for the post show angle but also Iīm hoping that DeMarcus could potentially get a point of overness by beating Morty. As for who to compliment after the show, I knew I wanted to compliment Joe as D is better than normal for his angles and the match was pretty good undercard match as well (ok, so Logan is pretty solid opponent but still). Other two were slighly harder but I decided to go with Queen and Cobra even though Smooth and Silencer did better and the main reason is that Smooth and Silncer are expected to be the top two every night and I praise them a lot already so wanting to give some other guys love as well. Both DeMarcus and Logan also worked well here and looks like they are able to fill the spots I planned for them, Deuce managing an E personal grade is also note worthy as is the fact that Eagle behaved once again.

main event: Smooth: 27, Queen: 24, Seth: 19, Silencer: 24
upper midcard: Jolson: 18, DeMarcus: 18, Revell: 18, Joe: 18,
midcard: Cobra: 17, Eagle: 17, Garry: 17, Drury:15, Mortimer: 16, Whittaker: 17
lower midcard: Deuce: 14, Hurakan: 12, Funk: 12, Hangman: 11
Opener: Night: 11, Wolfsbaine: 6

Smooth gained 4 points but donīt think for a second that has anything to do with my show, he did defeated Kentucky Bill in FCW which is the reason for this popularity jump, still nice to see progress even if I canīt claim any credit from that. DeMarcus did gain a point by beating Mortimer who lost one point but thatīs the only positive gain there was outside of the usual "guys with less than 17 getting two points by default " (well, Night got three so guess thatīs another positive). On the plus side, Mortimer losing popularity was the only loss as well so ok results overall I guess, Iīm just slighly disappointed that Cobra didnīt gain anything from the three way, perhaps he would had if he wasnīt the one getting pinned? On finances side, it was another 2 704$ loss

Roster Moves:

Guys Leaving:


Mad Dog Mortimer
Age: 41
Record (in ESE): 1 - 0 - 5 (3 - 0 - 25)
Average match Rating (in ESE): E+
Mortimer did have longer run with me than what I initially expected and even had a highlight on being in a (very) short storyline with Quentin Queen back in 2017. That said, he was never in any danger to break out from the jobber ranks as heīs personal in-ring performance never got past E- mark and he didnīt get many changes on showing what he could do on microphone either (not that heīs skills promise any greatness on there either). Overall, I was reasonable happy with Mortimer and him leaving is more because I want to fresher the roster a bit rather than him doing anything wrong. Also, with Mortimer leaving, that means that half of the original roster of eight is now gone and thatīs a landmark on itīs own (well, again, technically Jolson and Seth are still here) although not necessarily one I wanted to have this early. Despite not being on time decline yet, I donīt foresee much chance on Mortimer coming back so this is likely last you see him in this diary outside of the alumni posts.


New Signings:


Darryl Borgomeo
Age: 21
Popularity in USA: F-
Heel, Biker
As Darrylīs alt will no doubt tell, heīs regen of Johnny Martin. His in-ring and performance scouts as strong while Physican and Entertainment are both average. Heīs average playing face and strong playing heel and is good locker room influence. And thatīs pretty much all I know about him other than the fact that he have had two matches on independent scene, beating Natalie DiMarco on E- rated match in Septemper 2018 and then losing to Annihilus on F+ rated match a month later. So why hire him? Well, with Drury likely getting over simply by working with FCW and Wolfsbaine and Hangman being associated with Cobra and thus needing to stay decently strong, Iīm quite certain that whoever replaces Mortimer ainīt going to get many wins so might as well hire untested rookie who can gain most out by just jobbing a few years while developing his skills. Another reason is that I wanted cheap talent and Darryl was willing to work with just 130$ per show (again, no travel cost either) so I decided to hire him for three years straight of the bat. Now, three years is likely year more than he should stay on momentum point of view but heīs cheap enough that I donīt mind whole lot and I always have room for guys who I donīt mind jobbing to other people. Heīs changes on staying past the first three years are quite low though unless he somehow shoots up on the ranks similar than what Garry has done.

November 2018
Friday, week 3




ESE Eternal Storm
San Juan High School (Puerto Rico)
Attendance: 300


ANGLE:


Show starts with Smooth in the ring, claiming that he wonīt speak long (thatīs a first) because heīs way too awesome for this crowd. Smooth continues that tonight, he will right the wrong done to him and get back the King of the Network belt that was stolen from him by pretender named Quantin Queen. Smooth claims that Queen might have defied the odds once but lightning wonīt strike twice and that Smooth will show once again why heīs the greatest wrestler in ESE and even the uneducated idiots (aka the crowd) will have to bow to his greatness again because he will be their champion as long as he chooses. D+


1 vs. 1
vs.
Freedom Eagle vs. Kirk Drury

In a bout that didn't have much heat and terrible wrestling, Freedom Eagle defeated Kirk Drury in 7:06 by pinfall with a Freedom Slam.
Notes: -
Performance: Eagle: E-, Drury: E
WINNER: Freedom Eagle by pinfall in 7:06 E


ANGLE:


Drury is livid on losing to Eagle again and calls Revell into ring. He tells Revell that heīs going to face Eagle again next month and Revell will be there in order to make sure Eagle will learn his lesson. Revell simply nobs and tells Drury that he will indeed help Drury cash the prize on Eagle as long heīs paid to do so. E+


1 vs. 1
vs.
Dustin Deuce vs. Outlaw Wes Revell

In a poor match, Outlaw Wes Revell defeated Dustin Deuce in 5:45 by pinfall.
Notes:
Performance: Deuce: E, Revell: E+
WINNER: Outlaw Wes Revell by pinfall in 5:45 E+


ANGLE:


Before their match the new fun loving duo (or trio if you count the monkey) comes into ring and tells everyone that they have an awesome name for their team and thatīs Fun Police. Why is that? Because just like police patrol the streets to make sure everyone is safe, they will patrol the backstage and in-ring area to make sure everyone has fun and are happy. OīHara shakes his head on commentary table, wondering if these two actually know what fun police usually reference in these circles. D


2 vs. 2
& vs. &
Fun Police (Garry The Entertainer & Nate DeMarcus) vs. Darryl Borgomeo & Hurakan

In a poor match, Fun Police defeated Darryl Borgomeo and Hurakan in 6:44 when Nate DeMarcus defeated Darryl Borgomeo by pinfall with a Snap Tackle.
Notes: Borgomeo debuted biker gimmic with above average rating
Performance: Garry: D-, DeMarcus: E+, Borgomeo: E, Hurakan: E
WINNERS: Fun Police by pinfall in 6:44 E+


3 vs. 3

& & vs. & &
Regular Joe & Jules Night & Jazz Funk vs. Predators (Cobra & Texas Hangman & Logan Wolsbaine)

In a poor match, Predators (Cobra, Logan Wolfsbaine and Texas Hangman) defeated Regular Joe, Jazz Funk and Jules Night in 10:02 when Cobra defeated Jazz Funk by submission with a Viper Vice.
Notes: Hangman was really off his game
Performance: Joe: D-, Night: E, Jazz: E, Cobra: D, Hangman: E, Logan: E+
WINNERS: Predators by submission in 10:02 D-


1 vs. 1 for King of the Network belt

vs.
Quentin Queen vs. Austin Smooth

In a decent match, Austin Smooth defeated Quentin Queen in 11:41 by submission with a Smooth Hold. Austin Smooth wins the ESE King of the Network title.
Notes:
Performance: Queen: D-, Smooth: D+
WINNER: Austin Smooth by pinfall in 11:41 D+


Show Rating: D-

Comments: Well, somehow we managed D- despite all the penalties from production values and not having a particularly good undercard so I take it. Booking wise, lets take the main one down first, which is the main event. Now Iīm usually fan of short title reigns and something between 7 - 9 defenses are usually the norm so why take a belt off from Queen so early? It actually doesnīt have anything to do with ratings as while Queen havenīt performed as well as Smooth and Silencer, I just canīt have those two have the belt all the time so someone else needs to carry it occasionally. The main reason reason for quick change is that I feel that thereīs need to occasionally break your typical booking habits in order to not become too predictable. Not that thereīs anything bad on being predictable, it just means you making logical bookings but I do feel that a surprise every now and then is needed in order to keep things fresh and interesting. This loss also ainīt the end for this particular storyline as this one will continue further but talking about those plans will have to wait a bit. That said, Queen was unhappy about the clean loss but when you work with me you win some and you lose some (unless you are a jobber in which case you wonīt win much ). The next match that I booked were actually the tag match with Fun Police, mainly because I wanted to make sure I had a spot for them. Now, I know the name is bit stubit but thatīs exactly what I wanted it to be as I feel it works for the pair and their current gimmicks. Next two matches were the first two singles matches and yes, I did give Freedom Eagle a win. My reasoning being that with Drury being on 15 popularity, he would still gain points even while losing so there was no reason to put him over Eagle quite yet (guess whoīs going to win the match next month ) while Eagle would be unlikely to phone his performance when he actually wins so I felt it was decently safe bet to advance the storyline this way. Revell got win over Deuce, mainly just because I felt that the other two guys in this feud should have a match too. The last match on the card was the six man tag match, which was there to give Predators some momentum while also advancing the storyline thanks to Joe being on opposide team. Now these bookings did left Silencer and Whittaker out from the show, not something Iīm perfectly happy about but they just happened to be the odd ones out. In general, seeing in-ring days less often is something that will typically happen to any top guys who ainīt in the storylines, espesially when I want to try to keep them strong and thus try to avoid giving them too many losses like is the case with both Silencer and Whittaker. I praised Smooth (how could I not?), Queen (despite not having particularly great performance, he still did fine for his standards even if he was unhappy about the result) and Wolfsbaine (E+ ainīt nothing special but itīs pretty much the grade you need to get if you want me to consider you being above jobber status so getting there so early without help from popularity promises good things). It wouldnīt had been wrong to praise Cobra as well but he was just praised and is fairly happy at the moment anyway so I decided to give nobs to Queen and Logan instead. Also note worthy that on a card were every undercard wrestler appeared, Eagle had the worst rating despite being on the winning side. Iīm sure his heavy morale penalty has something to do with it, but still.

main event: Smooth: 27, Queen: 24, Seth: 19, Silencer: 24
upper midcard: Jolson: 18, DeMarcus: 18, Revell: 18, Joe: 18,
midcard: Cobra: 17, Deuce: 16, Eagle: 17, Garry: 17, Drury:17, Whittaker: 17
lower midcard: Hurakan: 14, Funk: 14, Night: 13, Hangman: 13
Opener: Borgomeo: 4, Wolfsbaine: 9

Not much change on popularity front, everyone below 17 got the usual 2 - 3 points and no changes otherwise. On finances side, I continue to leak money by losing 1 386$ this month. On more interesting news, few big contracts are ending this month, namely Austin Smooth, Quentin Queen and Bret Graveson, all three being pretty important parts of the roster. Much to my surprise, Smooth was still happy with 500$ per show (same than he makes now) so I thanked him by removing travel costs (it pays to be loyal to me, doesnīt it? ) and giving him another three year contract. Queen on the other hand, wanted a raise with 700$ per show (was 600$ before) being his new asking prize. Thatīs not same kind of steal than with Austin but itīs still fair prize espesially without travel costs so I agreed on another three year deal for him as well. Bret Graveson actually lowered his wage demand on 500$ per show (used to be 700$) so I quickly offered another three year contract and removed the travel costs because Iīm so nice guy (darn I feel dirty doing so espesially when they already offer me good prize even with travel included). All three accepted their contract offers.

Sorry for not posting this sooner, I have just caught up.

Not cool getting rid of Mad Dog Mortimer. He was the glue that held your roster together.


I am interested in seeing how Darryl Borgomeo is going to turn out. Honestly I have not played deep enough to see any regens show up for TEW16. I am curious if Darryl will turnout to be as good as Johnny was.

I am all for putting the belt back on Smooth. I've never been a big fan of Quentin Queen in all honesty, and although he can be a part of a small company, the thing is you have two guys that are far superior champions and if you could get Cobra to a higher pop, I'm sure he could get better ratings. I also wouldn't be surprised to see Garry the Entertainer be a solid champion either. So that's four guys I prefer over Queen. Anti-Queen rant over. :P

Darryl Borgomeo is a bloody cool name. he seems to be a decent talent too with an E performance even with how low his pop is, not much behind the highly touted Logan Wolfsbaine. I could see Borgomeo be a champ in ESE.

I promise I put releasing Mortimer in top 10 "dumbest moves I made on this diary" list. Or I would if I ever would make that list.

I donīt have whole lot experience with regens either, I think my last ESE diary was the only one were I ever used them, and even there, the only regen I remember was stolen early on. So Iīm interested to find out how Darryl turn out as well. That said, most likely heīs just going to be cut after losing for 2 - 3 years as heīs current chances of getting a push would be quite low.

I also wouldn't be surprised to see Garry the Entertainer be a solid champion either. So that's four guys I prefer over Queen. Anti-Queen rant over. :P

Darryl Borgomeo is a bloody cool name. he seems to be a decent talent too with an E performance even with how low his pop is, not much behind the highly touted Logan Wolfsbaine. I could see Borgomeo be a champ in ESE.
Smooth wonīt have a long run as heīs main problem is that he already have feuded recently against any face who I could really see challenging for the belt (expect one new signing that happens after next show). Queen certainly ainīt as good as Smooth or Silencer but he is still considered as top 3 guy and has been build up quite much so far so donīt be suprised if he gets the belt back soon, although I do admit that heīs getting the push mostly because I just decided to give one to him rather than him doing anything to really earn it.

As for other two you mentioned, Cobra is certainly someone who I plan to push into main event scene. Garry on the other hand will likely stay as tag guy for next few years as the plan is to use Fun Police as backbone on eventual tag division and it might take bit of time before the division is even formed. Also, Garryīs alt does hold him back a bit as I have hard time seeing him as main eventer (I generally donīt rate comedy characters past midcard role and itīs hard to see Garry as anything else). That said, on one of my earliest diaries, I remember using Chuck Frisby of all people as one of my main heels and I have thought about potentially turning Garry heel as I feel that he could make a good creepy heel. So basically my idea is him sounding happy and all but then when he asks from the monkey what he should do the answer would be something along the "letīs kill everyone" (well, not that far maybe but you get the idea) thus painting him more as dangerous lunatic who thinks itīs fun to hurt people instead of the current happy-go-lucky character. That said, only time will tell if I ever pull trigger on that and itīs almost certainly multiple years away at best.

As for Darryl, I doubt he would be champ at least on his current run and the reason for that is that with several lower card heels getting a bit of a push at the moment, Darryl simply doesnīt have an opening to win matches and losing all the time will likely hurt his momentum too badly. That said, I said the same thing on Garry so thereīs always a chance.

Roster Moves:

Guys Leaving:


Justice Jolson
Age: 29
Record (in ESE): 11 - 1 - 8
Average match Rating (in ESE): -
Jolsonīs contract did run out between November and December and with him stil being employed by GSW, I wasnīt going to resign him for obvious reasons. Jolsonīs match history in GSW this year is 0 - 1 - 6 with average match rating being D so heīs gotten decent amount of matches but is still on jobber status. Overall, Iīd say he havenīt lost anything by dropping us as while heīs win - loss record would be better if he stayed, heīs gaining more exposure is GSW anad likely gains more popularity since AI doesnīt seem to run into same popularity problems that I do. Not much else to say here expect that Iīm kind of happy that heīs finally gone. Not because I would have wanted to get rid of him but because I have been quite embarrassed by the fact that heīs still auto-pushes as upper midcarder despite my best effort to push guys on my current roster. Then again, Seth has a year left on his contract and he auto pushes as main eventer still so my embarrasing lack of success is likely to continue all the way to end of 2019 anyway.

Before I start, I want to mention that I have now almost catched up with my simming (currently in the game Iīm at February before the show) and as a result, updates might be bit less frequent (not that I have done particularly good job on regular updates before). I still hope to do a post in a week phase but it might occasionally be slower than that.

December 2018
Friday, week 3




ESE Eternal Storm
San Juan High School (Puerto Rico)
Attendance: 300


ANGLE:


Show starts with Smooth in the ring, telling the audience that he did what he promised to do and is now two times King of the Network champion and that his reign will continue for unseeable future. Queen stops Smooth before he gets far and reminds Smooth that he has a rematch clause just like Smooth had and that he plans to get the belt back. Smooth laughes at that, telling Queen that lightning doesnīt strike twice and while he had a once in the lifetime luck of beating Smooth once, it wonīt happen again and that gone in the blink title reign that Queen had is the only one heīs ever going to get. Queen simply tells Smooth that they will see if Smooth can walk the walk as well as heīs talk the talk, because heīs going to cash his rematch in few months so Smooth should enjoy his title reign while it lasts. C-


2 vs. 2
& vs. &
Jules Night & Jazz Funk vs. Darryl Borgomeo & Hurakan

In a bout that didn't have much heat and terrible wrestling, Darryl Borgomeo and Hurakan defeated Jazz Funk and Jules Night in 6:19 when Hurakan defeated Jazz Funk by pinfall with a Hurakan Roll.
Notes: Hurakan was off his game
Performance: Night: E, Funk: E-, Borgomeo: E, Hurakan: E
WINNERS: Darryl Borgomeo & Hurakan by pinfall in 6:19 E


1 vs. 1
vs.
Freedom Eagle vs. Kirk Drury

In a bout that had a decent reaction from the crowd but terrible wrestling, Kirk Drury defeated Freedom Eagle in 7:34 by submission with a Scorpion Deathlock after interference from Outlaw Wes Revell.

Notes: Eagle completely phoned his performance
Performance: Eagle: E-, Drury: E+
WINNER: Kirk Drury by pinfall in 7:34 E


2 vs. 2
& vs. &
Regular Joe & The Silencer vs. Predators (Texas Hangman & Logan Wolfsbaine)

In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Regular Joe and The Silencer defeated Texas Hangman and Logan Wolfsbaine in 12:30 when Regular Joe defeated Texas Hangman by pinfall with a Joe And Behold.

In terms of in-ring work, The Silencer was head and shoulders above everyone else.
Notes: Joe and Silencer had excellent chemisty teaming with each others.
Performance: Joe: D-, Silencer: C-, Logan: E+, Hangman: E
WINNERS: Regular Joe & The Silencer by pinfall in 12:30 D


ANGLE:


After the match, Cobra comes into ringside and mockingly congratulates Joe for the win. Joe counters by telling Cobra that he have now beaten not only Cobra but also both his henchmen and thus proven that heīs a better man but if Cobra still thinks that Joe is easy prey heīs welcome to come after him again. Cobra shakes heīs head, looking amused. Yes, Joe have gotten some wins and proven that heīs not an easy target, but having a prey be worth your time is just going to make the eventual kiiling blow all that more sweater. And as far as wins go, winning a meaningless battle isnīt doing much, only the last fight counts and every time Joe has to fight them is draining Joe and evetually he will be weak enough for the final strike and then, and only then, will Cobra strike. D


2 vs. 2
& vs. &
Fun Police (Garry The Entertainer & Nate DeMarcus) vs. Austin Smooth & Whitehorse Whittaker

In a decent match, Austin Smooth and Whitehorse Whittaker defeated Fun Police in 11:50 when Austin Smooth defeated Nate DeMarcus by submission with a Smooth Hold.
Notes: -
Performance: Garry: D-, DeMacus: E+, Smooth, D+, Whittaker: D-
WINNER: Austin Smooth & Whitehorse Whittaker by pinfall in 11:50 D


Show Rating: D-

Comments: Ok show overall and another D- rating which is welcome after the string of E+ ratings, one thing I noted that most penalties now said that I only had slighly worse then some of my rivals, pretty sure it was straight up worse not too long ago so I need to check if there has been some changes on production values. First match to be booked on this show was actually Drury vs. Eagle mainly because I had already decided to that will happen and build-up for than in last show. I fully expect Eagle to sandback or complain on this one but they both on 17 popularity right now and I hope win here would help Drury to push up to 18 (he will certainly fall back to 17 at some point but would hopefully help another guy to get up to 18 as a trade off) and I donīt really care if Eagle is pissed off at this point and will happily fire him if he phones his performance. Next two matches to be booked were the semi-main and main event tag matches. On Joe / Silencer vs. Predators, I have wanted to try Logan and Hangman together for some time in order to check any potential chemistry notes but havenīt found a right place for that. A loss here shouldnīt hurt them too much while also advances the storyline between Joe and Predators and hopefully helps both Logan and Hangman to gain more than the minimum two points of popularity in order to push them up to that 17 earlier (thereīs bit limited options to make them look strong until they got there). As for the main event, I was thinking about having Smooth defend his belt, perhaps against feuding pair on a three-way but since I already booked Eagle and Joe on other matches, I decided against it and will likely have that match next month. I was thinking about having DeMarcus face Smooth but in the end, decided to go with tag match instead for two reasons. 1) It allows me to book Whittaker on the show and 2) it helps Garry and Nate to gain tag experience which is the goal for them at the moment. Loss to Fun Police there wasnīt likely the best build-up for them, but Smooth and Whittaker should be big enough names that it shouldnīt hurt them that much and they donīt really have rival team at this point anyway so no need to push them super strong ar the moment. That said, while they already a top tag team by just being a tag team (since there is no other teams at the moment), I do want to make sure that they would win most tag matches they are in, afterall, what use it is for them to be a team if they do worse than some random pairings (minus occasional loss to two main event level guys as was the case here)? The fourth match was just there to give Borgomeo and Hurakan an occasional win. I picked them over Jazz and Night because both Jazz and Night have negative relationship with someone else in the roster (OīHara for Jazz and Cobra for Night) and since Jazz and Night are by far the less important persons on those feuding pairs, they might be on the cutting block for that reason. Without those negative ralationships I would likely have gone the other way as Borgomeo and Hurakan arenīt likely to get enough wins to not tank their momentum thanks to Hangman and Wolfsbaine being associated with Cobra and Drury potentially gaining popularity from FCW which leaves Hurakan and Borgomeo to eat all the pins. Itīs also worth noting that Jazz Funk was bit unhappy about the loss but I did go with the wanted result anyway. Also, Freedom Eagle was unhappy about booking of his match but you all know what I think about Eagle for now so obviously I did go with my originals plans.

With Eagle phoning his perfomance, I did do what I said I do which is to tell him that heīs wortless and then fired him at the spot after the show. On more positive note, I did compliment Silencer for first ever C- rated performance and similarly gave Queen a praise for his C- angle. I would have wanted to praise Smooth as well but his gotten most praise out from the three and I needed to yell Eagle in order to make my point clear for rest of the locker room. The backstage stuff didnīt end there either as Dana OīHara decided to muddy the waters a bit more and him bad mouthing Jazz has now given simmering tension between Jazz and four other wrestlers, namely Cobra, Garry The Entertainer, Outlaw Wes Revell and Kirk Drury. Well, that seals Jazz Funkīs fate as heīs not important enough to keep with so many backstage penalties, espesially with both Cobra and Garry being extremely positive presences backstage and Jazz not even being one. So, both Jazz Funk and Freedom Eagle are now out from ESE as a result and I need to find two names to will their shoes. No-one cared about Eagle and both OīHara and Drury told me that firing Jazz was the right decision. To be fair, Iīm not happy about firing Jazz and this might play into replacing OīHara in long terms but we have to see if this affects to OīHara later on. As for the other four guys that were against Jazz, this episode wonīt have any future effects for them.

main event: Smooth: 27, Queen: 24, , Silencer: 24
upper midcard: DeMarcus: 18, Seth: 19 , Joe: 19,
midcard: Cobra: 17, Garry: 18, Revell: 18, Drury:18, Whittaker: 18
lower midcard: Deuce: 16, Hurakan: 17, Hangman: 16
Opener: Night: 13, Wolfsbaine: 12
Enchantment talent: Borgomeo: 8

Finally Seth ainīt in the main event! Well, ok, he will likely be back once I sign replaments for Eagle and Jazz but I take my victories were I can. On positive side, Joe gained a popularity point which wasnīt really expected so nice that it happened. Also, Garry gained a point from the main event loss and so did Whittaker (well he was on winning side but still). Also, Drury gained a point by kicking Eagle out from company so thatīs another plus. Hurakan, Hangman and Wolfsbaine all got three points as well while Borgomeo gained four so at least my popularity gains were pretty darn good this time. Oh, and about the product thing, forgot the check it at first with the surprise roster shuffle but now that I checked it, RIPW isnīt considered my rival any more so (guessing itīs because they are regional now although that happened in August so guess I was just late to notice it ) Iīm mostly losing just one level (usually to GSW but also IPW on broadcast quality) which is much more manageable cap to get even at least on some areas so we might need to look those up in the future. At the moment, I still think we stay were we are since we are gaining popularity with current shows and are still losing money. Speaking of losing money, we lost another 2 217$ this month, not too bad considering that everyone except Dustin Deuce was on the card.

Roster Moves:

Guys Leaving:


Jazz Funk
Age: 34
Record (in ESE): 0 - 0 - 6
Average match rating (in ESE): E+
Well, Jazz didnīt stay for long but despite me firing him, I actually doesnīt have anything bad to say on him. Jazz leaving was more of a case of backstage politics and him being disliked by too many important roster members rather than anything bad he did but still the end reasult is the same and I canīt say that I would miss him either as he didnīt contribute a whole lot into the shows other than being someone who I didnīt mind losing all the time.


Freedom Eagle
Age: 25
record (in ESE): 4 - 0 - 7
Average match rating (in ESE): E
If Jazz leaving was kind of "itīs a shame but I donīt really care" for me, Iīm pretty darn happy to get an excuse to get rid of Eagle. Which is a shame since I thought he could be valuable midcarder for me (I do seem to take liking on guys with masked alt for whatever reason) but random backstage incitend (his fight with Graveson) ended that chance pretty quickly and him becoming unhappy and then phoning his performances quickly spiraled him into dog house and gives him a dubious honor of being the biggest miss I had so far in this diary. That said, even before those incitents, he wasnīt quite getting the ratings I expected from him (remember, he was originally signed to replace Seth Whitehead) but without personal problems, I feel that he could have become a midcard guy, perhaps forming a patriotic midcard tag team with someone (potentially with Regular Joe or some new signing).


New Signings:
With two guys leaving, I obviosuly wanted to sign two new ones and while both guys were basically classified as jobbers (Eagle fell to that position after his misbehaving), I was in mind of bringing another midcard/main event guy on face side, potentially picking up 3 to 6 spot on the face side (so somewhere between Joe, Garry and Nate) depending on who Iīd sign. I also looked some older guys that I previously overlooked as it has occurred to me that I specifically picked popularity over perfomance promotion so that I could use older talents more effectively and then completely skipped older guys on the base idea that they are "too old". I looked several differend names with Ace Youngblood, Andrew Harper, Ford Gumble, Happy Elwood, Jebediah, Jeremie Courthey, Kashmir Singh, Knuckles, Max Mayhem, Rayne Man and Shady K being the main ones that I considered. For other spot, I wanted to simple sign another jobber guy so not going to go into deeper on who considerred for that. Anyway hereīs the guys I ended up with.


Andrew Harper
Age: 29
Popularity in USA: E- (22 in Puerto Rico)
Face, Bad Ass
So I ended up not hiring an older guy anyway, but Harper felt like a best fit in terms of skills, popularity and prize, with the cost being the main deciding factor as Harper was willing to work for 700$ per show, while most otherīs on the list above demanded at minimum 900$ per show which would have made any of them my highest paid guys (Harper is joint second with Queen, asking 100$ less than Regular Joe). While I do associate Harper as heel thanks to him being that in NYCW, he does have strong rating on face side as well and thatīs what he will be here (at least for time being), slotting somewhere between Joe and Fun Police in terms of initial push. Harper was cut from NYCW back in November 2017 (he did get a tag title reign with New York Doll that lasted from may 2016 to November 2016 to go alongside the two Tri-State regional title reigns he had before the game started) so he spend this entire 2018 in Intependence scene, getting a respectable D- as his match average there although he mainly had decent (or at least well known) opponents like Singh, Charlie Thacher, Jeremy Courtney, Honest Frank, Miller Fforte and Moroi so lets see how he can do with me.



Fred Bowen
Age: 20
Popularity in USA: F-
Face, Biker
No, I didnīt hire Grunt, but itīs his regen Fred Bowen who so far have had only two matches in intependence scene (wins against TJ Bayley and JOJI, the first one rated as F+ and the second as E) so obviously heīs very green still. That also means heīs cheap though and heīs willing to work for just 140$ per show and as said before, I donīt really expect my jobbers to perform anyway so why not pick a cheap one if I can? Bowen scouts as strong physical and heel with average elsewhere and thatīs all I know so lets see if he manages to become something or if heīs just going to leave after his current two years contract is done. I gave him a biker gimmick mainly bacause Gruntīs alt kind of pushes me there for some reason but also I figured that I could pair him up with another newbie Darryl Borgomeo (who also had biker gimmick) as a jobber team. Or atleast that thought crossed my mind until I realized that Darryl is heel so they arenīt going to team up any time soon.

I admit after finally getting fully caught up I am enjoying seeing a company of similar size using some of the same guys I do just to see how different they perform. I am somewhere in 2019 with AAW so it is neat seeing a guy like Austin Smooth where he is at in your game and try to compare where he was at that time in mine.

I love how you just cut people without hesitation. I always say, "I should really fire so and so...but...", and I never fire anyone.

Iīm enjoying compering our diaries too for same reason. Iīm espesially interested on how well Ramone and Kid could do for you since they didnīt get much of a shot in my company.

Iīm mostly not a quick cut type myself (or at least I donīt see myself as such ) but I donīt tolerate bad behavior particularly well so cutting Eagle was an easy thing to do since I did found his behavior unacceptable. Jazz would had been a lot more difficult if he would had been any higher on the card but since I didnīt have any plans for him and pretty much anyone could replace him he just wasnīt worth keeping with all those backstage penalties (I always aim high backstage rating so any negative impacts are a big minus on my list espesially if thereīs multiple of those on one person).



Roster Review:

And as usual for the end of the year itīs time for a roster review. In terms of roster turnover, this year was quite an eventful one with Andrew Harper, Logan Wolsbaine, Texas Hangman, Kirk Drury, Nate DeMarcus, Hurukan, Darryl Borgomeo, Jules Night and Fred Bowen all joining us while Justice Jolson, Kid Fantasic, Mad Dog Mortimer and Rex Reeves left (though we already knew some of them were on their way out last year at this time). Add Freedom Eagle and Jazz Funk (and Seth Whitehead whoīs only namely part of the roster anymore) who didnīt stay a full year to that and you got by far the busiest year in terms of roster movement. Then again, that was to be expected as you do need to shuffle your starting roster evetually and most guys named above are/were quite low on the card and also rising to small was always going to bring some new names to the company. Overall, with additions of Logan Wolfsbaine, Nate DeMarcus and Andrew Harper, Iīm again feeling quite confident with my roster after shortly starting to worry about the grades during last year. Also getting used to production penalties and the fact that RIPW ainīt no longer a direct competition have helped me ease up a bit and as a result. I donīt currenty plan to expand my roster and only contract coming up in next 6 months is Garryīs and heīs planned to be resigned so hopefully the first half of 2019 will be uneventful in terms of roster movement. In terms of pushes, Iīm somewhat given up the top 8, bottom 8 idea that I had a year ago, mainly because I found out that I still thought them being on differend levels anyway so it didnīt really reflect the reality particularly well. Before writing this one, I didnīt actually have particularly clear picture of who was were in terms of push bur writing this helped me clear my own head and come up with quite solid idea of were everyone stands in terms of push. That said, some movent could happen during the year as usual. Anyway, hereīs where everyone stands in my mind at this moment:


Big Three: Austin Smooth, The Silencer and Quentin Queen

No surprise here, these three are the three most over guys in the company at the moment and are thus the biggest stars. Queen is somewhat below the other two in terms of grades but that havenīt hurt him so far in my eyes. The main problem I have with these three is that they so much more over than anyone else (except maybe Harper) that is hard to figure feuds that wouldnīt hurt their popularity but still keep their opponents looking strong as well.


Other main players: Andrew Harper, Regular Joe, Cobra, Whitehorse Whittaker

These four would currently be the next tier behind the top three, Harper is bit of an unwritten leaf right now but heīs popularity alone would put him here as would the impression I have gotten from him while reading other peopleīs diaries.


Midcard guys: Nate DeMarcus, Garry The Entertainer, Outlaw Wes Revell

These three ainīt quite having the same push than the other top guys but are considered solid performers and will likely have frequent storylines with the main guys even if they are more likely to end up on the losing side at the end of the feud.


Rising Stars: Logan Wolsbaine, Kirk Drury, Texas Hangman

These are the next tier of guys, Logan is someone who I hope to eventually becoming main player, Kirkīs glass ceiling would likely be midcard guy currently but if FCW ever starts to use him he might become a real player simply by gaining enough popularity that I canīt ignore him anymore. Hangman is currently step below the other two, mainly being here thanks to him being part of Predators and thus needing to stay decently strong.


Rest of the guys: Hurakan, Darryl Borgomeo, Dustin Deuce, Jules Night, Fred Bowen

These guys are expected to lose way more than they win.

NOTE: Average match rating is from the 2018 and doesnīt include earlier years.


Main event:


Andrew Harper
Age: 29
Face, Bad Ass
Record (in ESE): -
Average match Rating (in ESE): -
As said, Harper is still unwritten leaf in terms of performance but I expect him being able to at least match the likes of Whittaker and Regular Joe on that area. Since Harperīs signing werenīt planned, I donīt yet have ideas for him but Iīm sure I soon find one and itīs quite safe bet to expect him to be in a storyline sooner or later simply because heīs the one with most options open as most of my top guys have either already feuded (something that is playing a big part going forward and is going to be mentioned a lot on this roster review), or I have plans to feud them later on.



Austin Smooth
Age: 24
Heel, Prima Donna.
Record (in ESE): 8 - 0 - 3 (24 - 2 - 8)
Average match Rating (in ESE): D
Smooth is still the best rating machine alongside Silencer and my top heel and I donīt see either one of those changing this year either. That said, once heīs current title run is over, heīs likely going to take a backseat in terms of screen time and the reason for this is simply that I have mostly exhausted his feud options with Joe, Silencer and Queen all being guys Smooth had feuded recently over the belt. That said, expect him to win a lot as heīs popularity is too high for him to lose outside of Queen and Silencer and with another face on Harper currently being the 4th most popular guy, I need to rather build heels up than faces and thus I donīt see Smooth being jobbed to anyone even if heīs not on the spotlight.


Quentin Queen
Age: 25
Face, Blue Chipper
Record (in ESE): 8 - 0 - 2 (25 - 1 - 6)
Average match Rating (in ESE): D
Queen managed to rise his average match rating to D (from D-) but then again, he spend second half of the year feuding with Smooth so I would be worried if he hadnīt done that. Despite not really delivering any better than Regular Joe, I still continue to push Queen as one of my top guys. I guess I just like to have at least guy or two at the top who probably shouldnīt be there, mainly because I occasionally like to push guys that normally arenīt used and thus tend to do so after I found few guys that I can trust keep things together (mainly Smooth and Silencer on this one with Cobra filling in when needed) while Iīm pushing the less great guys. Expect Queen to have big role this year as he have decent amount of feud options open namely with Whittaker and Cobra (yes, Queen feuded with Cobra back to 2016 but I feel like thereīs enough time between that and now that Cobra would be potential feud option again at this point) and potentially one of the rising stars (Logan, Hangman or Drury with Drury being the most likely one) if I need more options.



The Silencer
Age: 36
Face, Armed Forces
Record (in ESE): 6 - 0 - 2 (11 - 2 - 3)
Average match Rating (in ESE): D
Silencer has same role than Smooth on the heel side, namely make sure that I have at least one guy on each side who I can absolutely trust to deliver great ratings and as a result, heīs very important guy on my roster. That said, he didnīt found a feud after losing to Smooth and that is shown by his record as he only appeared in 8 shows out from the 12. I tried to find a feud for him on the next round, something that sounds easy enough as heīs only feuded with Smooth so far but the problem is that whoever heīs going to feud with is going to have so much lower popularity that Silencer is almost certainly going to drop popularity during the feud instead of gaining it and that combined with the fact that I have other plans for most likely feud partners later (Whittaker and Cobra again) and/or would run said feuds later could potentially leave Silencer off the feuds again. That would certainly not be ideal situation so Iīm currently considering adding him into certain multi-man feud just to make sure he has something to do, more about that when the current round of feuds ends.


Upper Midcard:


Nate DeMarcus
Age: 24
Face, Happy-Go-Lucky
Record (in ESE): 3 - 0 - 1
Average match Rating (in ESE): E+
Nate have had an ok start with us. E+ as match average ainīt particularly great but you have to remember that out of the four matches, Nate faced Mortimer once in singles action and then teamed with Garry as Fun Police on other three with two being against random jobber pair while only the third tag match was against talent higher on the card. Thatīs quite likely how it is for the most part for Fun Police, beating jobbers and losing to guys higher on the pecking order, although they will likely end in some feuds too (I actually plan to put Fun Police into storyline straight away to replace the Revell vs. Eagle one). Overall, Iīm so far happy about Nateīs performance and think that he and Garry could be solid midcard team for a long time.


Regular Joe
Age: 29
Face, Blue Collar
Record (in ESE): 7 - 0 - 4 (24 - 1 - 8)
Average match Rating (in ESE): D-
Joe is still the highest paid guy in the roster and still slighly underperforms considering his cost but heīs still a solid hand and currently the plan is to keep him once his contract comes up after 11 months. Joe had a bit of down year in terms of push, falling from being the main champ into more midcard position while putting Smooth and Whittaker over and now feuding with Cobra who I plan to push so you can likely figure were that feud is going. Iīm hoping to build Joe back up a bit after his current feud ends but he does suffer a bit from a same thing that Smooth, namely that he already have feuded with the biggest heel names recently (Smooth, Whittaker and Cobra) and thus will likely have to settle to midcard feuds until I either shake up my top heels or until enough time has passed that I feel the feuds are ok to be redone.


Seth Whitehead
Age: 25
Face, Bad Ass
Record (in ESE): 0 - 0 - 0 (13 - 1 - 9)
Average match Rating (in ESE): -
Seth havenīt been working up for a year now and only had one match in GSW this year so not much to say here. Heīs contract is up in 11 months and I doubt heīs GSW contract would run out before that so most likely he wonīt have another match for us before his run ends. Certainly the biggest loss I have had so far and someone who I would look to sign back if he leaves from GSW.



Whitehorse Whittaker
Age: 31
Heel, Grizzled Tough
Record (in ESE): 8 - 0 - 2 (13 - 0 - 3)
Average match Rating (in ESE): D-
Whittaker has done ok job so far, enough to justify his current push but not enough for me to consider him amongst my most reliable performers. In terms of storylines, Whittaker started the year strong by beating Regular Joe but then I didnīt find a storyline for him after that so heīs push slighly stalled as a result (that three point popularity drop in July didnīt help either and he mostly faced jobbers after that so gaining popularity back have been hard). Expect Whittakar to take more central state next year as with Smooth likely taking a step back, it would be Whittaker and Cobra who I expect to fill the void until I find a fresh feud for Smooth again.


Midcard:


Cobra
Age: 28
Heel, Snake
Record (in ESE): 5 - 0 - 4 (17 - 1 - 11)
Average match Rating (in ESE): D-
Cobra continues to be a solid presence on my midcard and Iīm hoping this would be the year when he starts his raise to main event scene, at least thatīs the plan at the moment but we will see how it works. As is often the case with me, some of the top guys are having years were they arenīt on the spotlight a lot and Cobra had that kind of year this time, not having any feud at the start of the year. At the second half, things fired up a bit with the current feud with Regular Joe starting. I have plans on further feuds for Cobra and him being the leader of my only stable should also help him stay decently strong as other members of the stable can eat some key losses in feuds. So basically, expect Cobra to stay strong this year and likely the next as well and hopefully getting a push that sees him becoming main event player (assuming plans doesnīt change).



Garry The Entertainer
Age: 24
Face, Bubbly Babyface
Record (in ESE): 7 - 0 - 4 (8 - 0 - 11)
Average match Rating (in ESE): D-
Despite Cobra and Seth having had pretty good careers so far in my diary, I think Garry might well be or at least become the biggest success story so far. The reason why I say this is that he was brought in as a jobber and I believe I said that you shouldnīt expect him to win any matches during his stay. Well, just year later and he has almost twice as many wins than losses for last year so Garry certainly have moved up on ranks. Being in tag team is a bit of a double edge sword with me as on one side, you are more likely to stay decently strong and keep your job if you are midcarder that has a tag team going on versus singles guy but on the same time, upper midcard is a bit of glass ceiling if you are on tag team as I rarely do main event teams (mainly because I feel those would dominate the tag division). In Garryīs case I assume getting a partner would be more positive than negative as heīs alt would make it hard for me to push him as main player regardless of how good heīs performance would be and being one of the main tag team guys would likely be second best option to be in my roster if main event run is unlikely. Expect Fun Police to be in storyline or two (were they will likely be bit more on losing end but itīs still an upgrade for them) so they should gain decent exposure next year.



Hurakan
Age: 19
Heel, Cartoon Joker
Record (in ESE): 1 - 0 - 6
Average match Rating (in ESE): E+
Hurakan have been doing an ok job so far so I have no comblains on him. Heīs likely going to fall a bit on the pecking order when everyone gets to 17 popularity but thatīs all right as he isnīt really meant to be midcard guy in the first place. Expect Hurakan to continue his jobbing duties next year and with Logan, Drury and Hangman all getting a bit of a push, I doubt Hurakan would get more wins next year than this and might well not have even that one when everything is said and done.



Kirk Drury
Age: 29
Heel, Ravishing
Record (in ESE): 4 - 0 - 5
Average match Rating (in ESE): E
As his average match rating will tell, Drury havenīt yet managed to turn the ratings in that I was hoping he would (he actually have the worst average on any active guy currently which shocks me quite a bit) but he likely had ringrust at the beginning and had to deal with Eagle a lot on the second half so Iīm still patient with him. Drury kind of benefited from the Eagle episode a bit and gained few more wins than he would otherwise had. He also potentially stands to gain from his FCW contract as any popularity raise should help him with us although he likely going to donate some of that elsewhere the same way Ramone was back when he was with us. Of course, FCW would need to use him first and the AI ainīt having great record on actually using my talents so far so we have to wait and see. I do have storyline or two in mind for Kirk so expect him to get chance to show his skills at the beginning of the year although, like Fun Police, heīs more likely to end into losing side of feuds. So overall, Kirk potentially stands to gain a push (espesially if FCW finds use for him) but itīs bit of a sink or swim year for him as he needs to get that E match average rating up to at least E+ and prefetably D- rating if he wants to keep the position Iīm currently planning for him.



Outlaw Wes Revell
Age: 27
Heel, Cowboy
Record (in ESE): 6 - 0 - 2 (8 - 0 - 4)
Average match Rating (in ESE): D-
So far, the experiment with Revell have been bit of a mixed back as he havenīt really shined but havenīt disappointed either. Thatīs partly my fault as I havenīt really been comfortable pushing Revell (the fact that I was unwilling to put him over Queen while they feuded being the biggest sign on that) above beating jobbers and losing to bigger guys and the feud with Eagle that was supposed to help Revell partly fell flat thanks to Eagleīs behavior problems. Overall, I feel that midcard is were he should be at the moment so expect similar treatment than with Drury and Fun Police, namely being in storylines but likely on the losing side when facing above midcard guys.



Texas Hangman
Age: 19
Heel, Crusher
Record (in ESE): 2 - 0 - 4
Average match Rating (in ESE): D-
Hangman has certainly benefited being put into same group than Cobra and Logan and while he will be the fall guy for the group, that might still be higher than he supposed to be on this state of his career. Stiil, thatīs were he is and I have no current plans to alter his push, it remains to be seen if he can stay relevant after Predators run their course but right now, heīs in a good spot and should develop well while working alongside Cobra and Wolfsbaine. Expect Hangman to feature in storylines, mainly as a henchman for Cobra but thatīs still way more than any other rookie guy could claim to have.


Lower Midcard:


Darryl Borgomeo
Age: 21
Heel, Biker
Record (in ESE): 1 - 0 - 1
Average match Rating (in ESE): E+
Darryl is still pretty much unwritten leaf at this point so not much to say about him. Expect him to stay near the bottom of the card while collecting experience.



Dustin Deuce
Age: 18
Face, Goth
Record (in ESE): 1 - 0 - 7
Average match Rating (in ESE): E+
Deuce did do bit more than I originally thought on his first year thanks to being in that Revell vs. Eagle storyline (although he didnīt do much on that one partly because of Eagle, again). Now that the storyline has ended, expect Deuce to keep jobbing as heīs still near the bottom of the barrel in terms of push and that unlikely to change anytime soon.



Jules Night
Age: 21
Face, Machine
Record (in ESE): 0 - 0 - 6
Average match Rating (in ESE): E+
Of the guys who I but into "rest of the guys", Night would currently be the most likely to get a push but that doesnīt say a whole lot and itīs still quite unlikely heīs going to get past jobber role espesially with him and Cobra disliking each otherīs. Night has been a solid hand on lower end of the roster and thatīs pretty much all you can expect from him to be.



Logan Wolfsbaine
Age: 23
Heel, Enforcer
Record (in ESE): 1 - 0 - 2
Average match Rating (in ESE): D-
Logan have had a solid start although to be fair, Logan has also in general faced higher level opponents so far than most of the other low level guys and thus the average match rating might lie a little bit. Still, Logan is someone who I look to become an important part of the roster in future and he will likely get into midcard pack alongside Fun Police and Revell pretty much as soon as he gets to 17 popularity. Whatever he gets further than that depends on his performance but Iīd assume he would stay on the midcard at least 1 - 2 years before I would push him further even in the case were I would feel him being ready for a bigger role.


Enchantment Talent:


Fred Bowen
Age: 20
Face, Biker
Record (in ESE): -
Average match Rating (in ESE): -
Bowen just got here so nothing yet to say about him. His role is same than most other lowercard guys, put otherīs over while collecting experience and honing his own skills.



Tag Teams:
Fun Police (Garry The Entertainer & Nate DeMarcus)



Stables:
Predators (Cobra, Texas Hangman & Logan Wolfsbaine)


Title History:
King of the Network belt:


Current Champion: Austin Smooth (2nd run) 0 defenses

Former champions:
Quentin Queen (1st run) 2 defenses
Austin Smooth (1st run) 9 defenses
Regular Joe (1st run) 8 defences


Alumni:


Freedom Eagle
Age: 26
Record during the year (in ESE): 4 - 0 - 7
Average match Rating during the year (in ESE): E
Eagle was just fired so obviously havenīt yet been anywhere since that, only time will tell if he gets work elsewhere in the future.



Jazz Funk
Age: 34
Record during the year (in ESE): 0 - 0 - 6
Average match Rating during the year (in ESE): E+
Much like Eagle, Funk just left after I terminated his contract and since heīs still based in Canada he will go back to there which is likely bad for him as he didnīt have any matches there before going to us.



Mad Dog Mortimer
Age: 41
Record during the year (in ESE): 1 - 0 - 5
Average match Rating during the year (in ESE): E+
Mortimerīs last match with us was in October and he havenīt worked anywhere else so far. My prediction is that he will do independence matches for rest of his career but who knows, maybe he gets lucky and AI signs him somewhere?



Justice Jolson
Age: 30
Record during the year (in GSW): 0 - 1 - 6
Average match Rating during the year (in GSW): D
Jolson did manage to get matches in GSW this year and while he was losing all the time, his match average is same than my top three guys so Iīd assume move to GSW has been good for his career. Will be interesting to follow if Jolson manages to get past the current lower midcard role in GSW.


Rex Reeves
Age: 39
Record during the year (in Independence and ESE ): 2 - 0 - 2
Average match Rating during the year (Independence and ESE): E
Reeves had two E+ matches with us before leaving early this year. After that he had just two independence appearances with E and E- match ratings although both of those matches ended with Reeves on the winning side (one being a tag match with Nate DeMarcus on the losing side).



Kid Fantastic:
Age: 22
Record during the year (Independence): 2 - 1 - 1
Average match Rating during the year (Independence): E
Much like most of the rest of the guys I have let go, Kid has been staying in Independence scene so far but he has gotten somewhat regular work with 4 appearances with two E- rated and 2 E rated matches.



Ricochet Ramone
Age: 30
Record during the year (in FCW): 2 - 0 - 9
Average match Rating during the year (in FCW): D
Ramone is so far the most successful guy on this list (although thatīs pretty much given with most guys only leaving this year) as he had full 11 matches in FCW and even picked up two wins along the way. He also donīt have simmering tension with Handsome Stranger anymore so he could well stay in FCW for some time. Heīs still lower midcard guy with them but is certainly more over than what he would be if he would still be with us. Highlight of Ramoneīs year is likely his four challenges on FCW Peopleīs champion belt (Giant Brody being the champion on all four times) during the year (he lost them all but at least he got to be in title matches) and a win over Carlos Gonzales in September.



Lucas Danger
Age: 24
Record during the year (Independence): 1 - 0 - 4
Average match Rating during the year (Independence): E-
Lucas was in five matches this year which is the same than what he worked in previous two years combined (including the two matches with us) so on that note, 2018 was certainly his most successful year. On other hand, his matches were really bad with three out of the five matches getting only F+ rating, one getting E- and only one being rated as E. Hard to see Lucas getting regular work with that kind of performance espesially with the drug problems but who knows what AI will do so there is hope for him, I guess.

Friday, week 3



ESE Eternal Storm
San Juan High School (Puerto Rico)
Attendance: 300


2 vs. 2
& vs. &
Dustin Deuce & Jules Night vs. Kirk Drury & Outlaw Wes Revell

In a poor match, Outlaw Wes Revell and Kirk Drury defeated Dustin Deuce and Jules Night in 6:57 when Outlaw Wes Revell defeated Dustin Deuce by pinfall.
Notes: Deuce was really off his game
Performance: Deuce: E-, Night: E, Drury: E+, Revell: D-
WINNERS: Kirk Drury & Outlaw Wes Revell by pinfall in 6:57 E+


ANGLE:


After their match, Kirk Drury starts to talk about how great he is and how everyone should realize it now that he and Revell did banish Freedom Eagle from ESE. Drury also suggest to Revell that they should work together on regular basis. Revell answers that he will work with Drury as long as he keeps the dollars coming his way. Drury tries to convince Revell on working with him as partners instead of hired gun but he has little success on it much to his annoyance. Druryīs mood takes a swing to worse as Fun Police interfere them, telling Drury and Revell that they did bad things to force Eagle out from ESE and that they are going to get their punisment in hands of Fun Police. Oh and since they happen to be here, Revell should certainly accept the offer as itīs always more fun with friends. Drury starts yelling to Fun Police, telling them to piss off since Drury and Revell already had a match. Garry and Marcus agree that they canīt face each otherīs this month but next month they can and they will. Drury tells them that they are going to get beating of their lives by him and Revell but Revell simply reminds Drury that he ainīt doing anything unless he gets paid. Drury tries to argue that Fun Police is after them both but that doesnīt seem to concern Revell so Drury finally agrees to pay for Revell to be in the match and help him take out the Fun Police. Speaking of Fun Police, they had already wandered backstage during the argument between Drury and Revell, a fact that makes Drury fume even more about how disrespecful that was while Revell is still his usual stoic himself.

3 vs. 3
& & vs. & &
Fun Police (Garry The Entertainer & Nate DeMarcus) & Fred Bowen vs. Predators (Cobra, Texas Hangman & Logan Wolfsbaine)

In a poor match, Predators (Cobra, Logan Wolfsbaine and Texas Hangman) defeated Fred Bowen and Fun Police in 9:56 when Cobra defeated Fred Bowen by submission with a Viper Vice. During the match we also had Kirk Drury run in and attack Garry.

Fred Bowen was the weak link, struggling to keep up with everyone else's in-ring performance.

Notes: Bowen debuted biker gimmick with great rating.
Performance: Garry: D-, DeMarcus: E+, Bowen: E-, Cobra: D-, Wolfsbaine: D-, Hangman: E+
WINNERS: Predators by submission in 9:56 D-


ANGLE:


After the match, Cobra stays on the ring, telling audience that ESE management has seen fit to book him against Regular Joe in 1 vs. 1 action next month. Cobra says that as far as Joe goes, itīs still bit early for the killing blow so he didnīt plan to face Joe just yet. But as is the way of the nature, he has to adapt his plans and heīs going to be ready to face his prey next month. D


1 vs. 1 vs. 1 for King of the Network belt

vs. vs.
The Silencer vs. Austin Smooth vs. Whitehorse Whittaker

In a decent match, Austin Smooth defeated The Silencer and Whitehorse Whittaker in 13:40 when Austin Smooth defeated Whitehorse Whittaker by submission with a Smooth Hold. Austin Smooth makes defence number 1 of his ESE King of the Network title.

Whitehorse Whittaker was the weak link, struggling to keep up with everyone else's in-ring performance.
Notes: -
Performance: Silencer: D, Smooth: D+, Whittaker: D-
WINNER: Austin Smooth by pinfall in 13:40 D+


Show Rating: D-

Comments: I started to booking of this show on the main event and boy was that tricky to put together. Overall, I find it quite hard to figure good filler title matches and typically go with three or four way matches as singles matches are ofter reserved for feuds. On this case, I was first considering Cobra and Joe into main event but with Cobra just cutting a promo on last month about time not being right yet for the strike, I felt that it would be rather odd if he faces Joe straight after that even if it is a title match (shows how well I plan ahead which is not much at all ). I then put Harper into title match and then decided that Silencer didnī t have anything better to do and figured that with him and Smooth in the main event, the match would always be great. Then I decided to add Whittaker into match too as I figured that a) heīs doing nothing at the moment, and b) he could benefit skill wise on working with Silencer and Smooth. Then, I decided to make it a three way anyway and cut Harker on the main event, the main reason for this is that I didnīt want a new signing to be in the title match in his first appearance (not that it has stopped me before as at least Garry and Freedom Eagle both had their first match be a title match) as he havenīt "earned" a spot in there. Now, I know itīs not a great reasoning consdering that I have booked pretty much every jobber than had been in ESE into title matches one time or another (mostly to get those filler title defenses that I so love to book) but the case with Harper is that heīs going to get a shot later anyway and Iīd like to proberly build him up first while jobbers pretty much have their best shot at the beginning before people get too used to see them getting pinned. After the main event was booked, rest of the show fell down pretty quickly, I knew I wanted Revell and Drury to feud with Fun Police so I had Revell and Drury be in a tag match in order to set up the angle later on. I wasnīt entirely happy to have Fun Police be on the losing side for Predators as I fear that it might drop Nate back to 17 without really benefiting anyone but I figured that it was still ok thing to do espesially with Drury interfering and Bowen being the one getting pinned. Harper and Queen both got an essential squash match just to get them in the card. Both Queen and Cobra cutting a promo was simply a way to keep their feuds going instead of really setting up anything new and thus what they actually said were secondary concern to me. Also, slighly odd note is that Whittaker was unhappy about how the booking of the main event went. I actually checked if Silencer would be more willing to take a loss and he would but Whittaker was still unhappy? At the end, I just decided to go with Whittaker losing since heīs unhappy anyway and his not important enough for me to change my booking plans if he gets angry enough to leave (oddly enough, he is unhappy about the booking of the match but is still happy about his recent booking on January... yeah...). I assume itīs the old, "heīs more popular in rest of the USA so he sees himself as bigger star even if he has less popularity in our home area" thing that have been bugging me during multiple diaries across several TEW games. This is one of the main reasons why I hate signing talent above F+ popularity around USA in this type of saves as they almost never happy to lose to my main guys (aka the ones with popularity only in my home area) despite my main guys having higher popularity in the only area were it really matters. I complimented Queen (great promo and also decent enough match with off game opponent), Hangman (E+ is slighly better than what I generally expect from him) and Revell (nothing special but he was able to be the highest ranked guy in his match and ok promo too, plus I havenīt really praised him a whole lot and have kind of failed to push him the way I was supposed to so I decided that he at least deserves a praise this time).

main event: Harper: 22, Smooth: 27, Queen: 24, Silencer: 25
upper midcard: Drury:18, Joe: 19, Seth: 19, Whittaker: 19
midcard: Cobra: 17, Deuce: 17, Garry: 18, DeMarcus: 18, Revell: 18, Hangman: 17
lower midcard: Borgomeo: 10, Hurakan: 17, Night: 15, Wolfsbaine: 14
Opener: Bowen: 3

So Silencer gained a point just by being part of the main event as did Whittaker despite all that whining about needing to be booked stronger. Everyone else stayed were they were expect anyone below 17 got who all got their usual 2 points (well Bowen got 3 but everyone else). Itīs also note worthy that Drury did have a match in FCW (win against Brady Prince) and while that didnīt visibly change his popularity, auto-push did upgrade him from midcard to upper midcard between my two events so I assume he gained slight popularity boost from that even if that doesnīs show on popularity rating. On financial side, we lost another 1 321$.

I have no problem with filler title matches. Sometimes you just have to have them in order for your champion to have a longer reign. If you do not have them then you would have only one worker winning on a regular basis (the champion) while the rest of your higher workers in that division (be it singles or tag) would have to constantly lose to them and then trade wins with the other workers who are not the champion/champions.
