Melissa Santos to be set as Pregnant
Joey Mathews is now taking booking on the indy circuit so is out of retirement.
Okay, so I saw a couple things from the WWE side of things.
Dawson is out 3ish months with a torn bicep. - Will be back by next release
Bayley is out probably for a few more weeks with a shoulder injury (even if it's kayfabe, definitely should be reflected) - Will be back by next release
Cass is out 6-9 months with a torn ACL.
Joe is out 4-6 weeks with a knee injury. - Will be back by next release
Primo's out probably for another 3-6 weeks with his...guess what...knee injury. - Will be back by next release
Nikki's probably out for 3ish months, she's on Dancing With the Stars, so they have to tape that or whatever. - Will be back by next release
Thank you so much for all your work, especially given the injury. Your TEW mod, as well as the 1998 Art of War mod from Mod Squad, is the reason that even after I got burglarized, I immediately got myself a new laptop. <3
Unfortunately, it seems that Yoshihiro Takayama will not be able to make a return to wrestling, as his injury is too serious.
Also on the Japan side of things, some guys have "Foreign Star", "Evil Foreigner", etc. set as gimmicks, but that kind of thing is barely used nowadays.
....also, it gets pretty awkward if another Japanese company hires them
Also, you could probably set El Desperado's "default" to El Desperado rather than his Young Lion name, as I don't think he'll abandon this gimmick anytime soon(and his face is weird).
And one last thing....how is Okada not a perfect 100 in every stat?
It's confirmed by Twitter that JBL's replacement on commentary for SmackDown will be Corey Graves (side note: YAS). Nigel McGuinness will be doing 205 live with Vic Joseph (again, YAS). It's unclear who will be doing RAW commentary or if Corey will be doing all the commentary for RAW and SD.
Also, could we get a bump for Tom Phillips's announcing? I feel like he's somewhere around 70ish, maybe 75 because he's at least comparable to Michael Cole in skill level. Also, as sad as this is, we should probably lower Jim Ross's announcing to around 80. He's declining
Would it make sense for Kid Lykos to be in the data as Kid Lykos with Ethan Silver as an alter ego, as he only goes as Lykos now, and has done for a while now, in addition to that being what most people are aware of him as.
Oh man, I've been waiting for this. Thanks for your hard work, man!
Edit: After playing a bit I noticed that there's no entry for KUSHIDA winning the Best of the Super Juniors this year. Nothing big, just a little heads up
Jaka and Chris Dickinson lost the EVOLVE tag titles at EVOLVE 88 to Anthony Henry and James Drake(the American one).
Jeff's still in GFW, he's just taking an indefinite leave of absence due to personal reasons.
Also, The Motor City Machine Guns should have a strong friendship, and Katey Harvey should have the same with Pollyanna.
Donovan Dijak was officially announced by WWE as being signed and working at the performance center.
Turns out it wasn't that much wrestlers, but I caught some while playing. I mostly checked NJPW so something in other promotions might have gone unnoticed.
The wrestlers with default gimmicks set to Foreign are:
Tetsuya Naito, as mentioned before. Rebel works better IMO.
Jushin Liger, use Comic Book Hero/Legend and Comic Book Villain
KUSHIDA, use Fan Favourite and, well, I think he never worked as a heel.
Naomichi Marufuji, I used the generic Bad Ass gimmick because I'm not familiar with his work.
Yujiro Takahashi, use Pimp.
NOSAWA Rongai, not familiar with his work either.
Also, Kikutaro's default is Fun Babyface regardless of disposition, IDK if he ever goes heel though.
Toru Yano is set as a Bad Ass, should be Fun Babyface and Cunning.
Goto's default is Young Lion for both, "Warrior" works better.
Minoru Suzuki is set to still be a MMA Figher, I don't know if he still does MMA considering he's 50 though.
On other notes....
- AJPW can be given a popularity boost, in Kanto at least. They recently got 6,500 fans to the 8/27 Ryogoku show(according to themselves, but by all accounts it was very crowded. Ryogoku is set to have 13000 maximum in the data I think, so that's half the house) Not saying they should get a huge boost or anything, as it was their biggest show of the year, but still.
- Speaking of AJPW and fans, Kento Miyahara should have better Charisma and Star Quality so that his effect as their Ace is reflected. I know it's all subjective and yadda yadda, but my point remains. He could use a boost to Psychology too(not anything too major, just enough to call in ring. A "D" just seems too low)
- NJPW, on the other hand, should have their popularity lower. At the current level they can easily get 30,000 people to a show in-game, which is unrealistic as not even Wrestle Kingdom is doing so well. Okada should still be considered an effective Ace though.
Caleb Konleys birth year is actually 1983
Kenny Omega & Xavier Woods should have a strong friendship
On his relationship with Woods, Omega brought up their mutual love of video games. 'The Street Fighting Man' said Woods is "cool guy" and he proud to call the SmackDown Live Superstar a friend.
"I've really got to hand it to the guy. We both barely have any time to do anything. And he [has] always just been so cool where if I'm able to make it to an event, he'll find a way to be at that same event as me. This year, like, I was in Florida for a video game competition and I think he took a redeye from somewhere across the country to be there that day without any sleep. Real cool guy. I'm proud to call him my friend or frenemy or whatever."
Xavier Woods & Buddy Murphy (Matt Silva) should probably have things like Social, Unselfish, etc set to max as you just read pretty constant positive things about them. Woods is basically a locker room leader and Murphy seems to be pretty much the same at NXT. Sometimes it isn't the top guys that make the difference.
I know she's not in the current database but it's a weird piece of news I couldn't help sharing - Christy Hemme is apparently part Cocker Spaniel
I hope she finds good homes for all her litter.
In all seriousness good luck to her and I hope she stays healthy during what is clearly going to be a difficult pregnancy.
Apologies for the long post but as I mainly play Stardom (or New Japan with a women's division) I noticed the roster could use some major TLC.
Note: I started watching Stardom at the start of the year and haven't missed a show since, if I've not seen a wrestler in that time then I'm assuming they no longer work for Stardom.
Note 2: Most of the Stardom girls seem to have exclusive contracts whereby they only wrestle for Stardom (perhaps with the odd appearance elsewhere). I don't know the best way to represent this in game, whether it be Exclusive PPA or add Loyalty to Stardom. I've assumed Exclusive PPA as that's what some of the existing contracts are set to.
Remove Act Yasukawa, Alex Lee, Alpha Female, Chelsea, Kyohei Wada, La Rosa Negra, Leah Vaughan, Santana, Saori Anou, Shanna, Shayna Baszler, Star Fire
Arisu Nanase should be removed too and put on hiatus, possibly with a loyalty to Stardom (basically she stopped wrestling suddenly, but if she were to return I'd see her going back to Stardom)
AZM/Azumi - add Diving Cross Body/Vertical Suplex as finishers
Hana Kimura - add Missile Dropkick/Big Boot as finishers
Hiromi Mimura - exclusive PPA, improve comedy performance to 70, increase charisma to about 70, add Jumping DDT/Rolling Leg Lock (submission)/Diving Crossbody as finishers
HZK/Reo Hazuki - exclusive PPA, Diving Senton/Whoopie Cushion as finishers
Io Shirai - exclusive PPA, lower chain wrestling to 60, increase aerial/flashiness to 70, add Moonsault/German Suplex (pinfall move)/Cloverleaf (submission) as finishers
Jungle Kyona - exclusive PPA, increase power to 25, increase charisma to 60, add Diving Splash/Hammerthrow Powerbomb as finishers
Kagetsu - change gimmick to something heelish (cocky would be fine), increase power to 30 at least, improve cocky performance to 70, add Oedo Coaster (450 splash) as finisher
Kris Wolf - improve charisma to 65, lower submissions to 20, increase aerial to 40, flashiness to 30, add Diving Double Kneedrop as finisher
Mayu Iwatani - exclusive PPA, add Frog Splash/Diving Double Stomp/Dragon Suplex (pinfall move) as finishers
Momo Watanabe - improve all in-ring stats by about 20-25 (except hardcore), change her gimmick to cocky as she's in Queen's Quest (tweener faction), add Missile Dropkick/Somato (running/diving double knees) as finishers, she's also been out since early this year with an Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear but has just resumed training (so probably add a month or two left on it)
Natsuko Tora - exclusive PPA, add Diving Senton as a finisher
Ruaka - exclusive PPA, add Big Boot as a finisher
Toni Storm - add Piledriver/Diving Leg Drop as finishers
Viper - change gimmick to cocky, change to a touring contract, improve technical skills by about 10-15 each, add Michinoku Driver as a finisher
Yoko Bito - exclusive PPA, add Bito Driver (pinfall move)/High Kick as finishers
Existing Workers To Add:
Starlight Kid - remove from hiatus, exclusive PPA, add Standing Moonsault/Frog Splash/Sliced Bread 2 as finishers
Mandy Leon - touring contract
Xia Brookside - touring contract
Kay Lee Ray - touring contract, add Gory Bomb/Diving Senton as finishers
Daichi Murayama (referee)
New workers - Note: I'm rubbish at coming up with stats as I tend to massively overvalue my favourites, so I'll suggest copying a wrestler at a similar skill level and changing a few things.
Hanan - born August 2004, debuted April 2017, copy Ruaka's stats but increase her Mat Work by about 10 and lower Brawling/Puroresu by about 5, Judo Throw as a finisher, good babyface/wholesome performance
Shiki Shibusawa - born May 1990, debuted July 2017, copy Ruaka's stats but increase sex appeal to about 70 (not really seen enough yet to offer more helpful suggestions), Missile Dropkick as a finisher, good babyface/wholesome performance
Tam Nakano - born March in some year (not sure when but I'd imagine she's late teens/early twenties), debuted July 2016, copy Natsuko Tora's stats but with about 10 more Puroresu and 5 less in technical skills, good babyface/wholesome performance (seeing a pattern yet?)
Barb Sasaki - this one's a bit awkward as he's a referee and Google isn't being helpful. Probably around 60 refereeing skill and he's likely in his twenties/early thirties
De-activate the existing Oedo Tai team (Kyoko Kimura is retired), replace it with one for Hana Kimura/Kagetsu (low experience, formed 2017, individuals)
De-activate Thunder Rock
Add ShiKid (Shiki Shibusawa/Starlight Kid), low experience, formed 2017, individuals
Add AZM/HZK (can call it Queen's Quest) as they tend to team a lot, low experience, formed 2017, individuals
Remove Candy Crush
Oedo Tai should be Hana Kimura, Kagetsu, Kris Wolf and SPOILER FOR LATEST SHOW, highlight to see: Tam Nakano
Viper should be in Queen's Quest
Add Team Jungle, formed 2017, Jungle Kyona/Natsuko Tora/Kaori Yoneyama/Hiroyo Matsumoto
In the Goddesses of Stardom lineage you have Hiroyo/Jungle winning the titles from Kairi/Jungle, when they won them from ByHo (Kairi/Yoko)
Swap the prestige levels of the SWA and Wonder of Stardom titles as the latter is treated like a much bigger deal
Stardom have their own broadcasting service in Stardom World, but I don't know if this was excluded for balance reasons (it always seemed stupidly easy to gain money/popularity with your own broadcaster). Nonetheless, they don't use Youtube anymore (I believe they're broadcast on Samurai TV in Japan, but I can't provide much more information than that).
If you do add Stardom World I'd probably put Tiny coverage in USA/Japan.
They have a working agreement with Ring of Honor (Women of Honor). Kris Wolf worked for RoH/WoH a few months back and Mandy Leon is currently in Japan. A few others (Kelly Klein and Scarlett Bordeaux) are scheduled to go later this year.
Kay Lee Ray, La Rosa Negra, Shanna, Tessa Blanchard and Viper could all be considered tour regulars as they've been over multiple times. You could also probably make the argument for Chelsea/Santana as they seem to have a good relationship with the company, but I've not seen either since I started watching.
This last bit is a bit debatable, but I'd consider having Mayu as the figurehead rather than Io. It's a bit early to say at the moment though, so maybe hold off on this.
Renee Michelle (who was in the Mae Young) and rockstar Spud are engaged.
Alex Lee is still available for STARDOM but the Queen of Strong style is super busy with bookings for Pure-J, Sendai Girls, OZ-Academy etc. It's one of those cases where like a number of Indie workers in the US she can make a lot more this way.
Strangler Davis should be heel
Rob Lynch has left the company
Chris Brookes and Kid Lykos should be face
TK Cooper and Dahlia Black should be face, they're also based in London now, not NZ
James Drake has been part of the roster for a good few months, he's currently teaming with Gibson as 'Grizzled Young Vets'
Also, they don't have yearly "We (Heart) Violence or "50 Shades of Pain" events, so you can get rid of those.
I'd also suggest giving OTT's KotN should have around 8 pop in the UK, they've worked PROGRESS, North and multiple others, also Lee Hunter should at least have the same pop as his brother Jim, makes no sense that they'd have any different (Confused as in Septembers release they do have the same popularity...)
Hi. Thanks as always for the updates. Some things I've found checking out the last update (hope nothing is a double suggestion):
- Mercedes Martinez is maybe THE veteran of the female indy wrestlers. I'd suggest to bump up her Respectlevel to at least 60
- Shayna Baszler had a great showing in the MYC. While carried psychology vise by most of the other women, her submission game was awesome and therefore I'd suggest to bump up her Submissions to 64. Also her Brawling could well be at 57
- Shayna Baszler should have a Strong Friednship with Ronda Rousey and should be the Protege of Josh Barnett.
- Sexy Stars Reputation should be lowered a lot after the Shoot incident. Maybe 58?
- Crazy Mary Dobsons strikes looked more Puroresu like than Brawlin. Maybe having those skills similiar like Puro also over 50?
- Alpha Female got over a lot in the MYC due to her menacing performance of a monster. I'd say her popularity should be at least 15 throughout the US, her Power up to 75 and her Menace also to 75.
- I think every competitor of the MYC came out more popular. +5?
KC Cassidy (Peyton Royce) got way better in her technical and submission game. Maybe Submissions 34 and Chain Wrestling 51.
- GWF Heavyweight Champion is now Orlando Silver, who beat Pascal Spalter for it at September 2nd. Maybe up his popularity in Central Europe to 52?
- The GWF has also a dojo named GWF Wrestling School. Trainer is Crazy Sexy Mike, reputation should be around 70. I could make a list of Alumnis for you if you intend to add them.
- Matt Cross has a long history of wrestling in Germany and he is very popular in the European Indy scene. I would give him popularity of 11 throughout Europe with the exception of Central Europe, there he should be at 17.
- In wXw: Tarkan Aslan, Lucky Kid, Ivan Kiev and Pete Bouncer should all be heels and have Outside Threat as Gimmick. They're all part of a stable called „Rise“ together with Bad Bones.
- Current wXw Shotgun Champion is Ivan Kiev, who beat David Starr on September 1st for it.
- wXw is holding a tournament for their first wXw Women's Championship. For now I would set it as Female Only, Midcard, and vacant.
- There is a Lucha documentary on Netflix. Based on that one I would give Shocker and Jon Andersen a friendship relationship.
- Kevin Steen should have a Strong Friendship with Jimmy Jacobs. In the opening of last weeks smackdown he said that one of the things he would do when he would be in charge would give his friend Jimmy a limo to travel. That was about Jimmy Jacobs.
- I miss Senza Volto, who is Europes premier High Flyer. https://www.cagematch.net/?id=2&nr=16692
Awesome Kongs Acting is pretty low. Her performance in GLOW proves to me, that she should be at least at 65.
- Curtis Murray should be in OTT as a fan favourite.
- Eddie Dennis, Mark Andrews and Pete Dunne should all have a strong friendship with one another.
- Katey Harvey and Pollyanna should also have a strong friendship. <---- Already mentioned
- Nathan Cruz should have his star quality increased to around 65.
- Sammi Jayne should be in ICW as an old school face, and shouldn't be a negative influence.
- Zack Gibson should have his microphone increased to around 60.
- I've made Fight Club: PRO's current schedule, albeit for TEW I would only run one Project Mayhem and Dream Tag Team Invitational show (DTTI is normally a full weekend) | https://gyazo.com/6d132ac275b47c559f800deb3b6554ea |
- The British independent scene is lacking locker room leaders, and so I would suggest adding a couple of people, such as Big Van Walter (who could be renamed in the data to WALTER), Doug Williams and Jimmy Havoc.
The various WWN promotions are no longer going to be carried by Floslam after Floslam filed a lawsuit against WWN earlier this month and today announced the pulling of all their programming. WWN shows are again being aired on WWN's own live streaming site.
Jim Cornette has left GFW.
- Shayna Baszler has signed for WWE, I would assume developmental deal
- PJ Black has been injured for months with a badly broken leg and a missing finger sustained while Base Jumping in June, and he's out for 6-12 months so maybe put him coming back in March-April? (Meant to say this a while ago, kept forgetting)
Some Dragon Gate points
- Masaaki Mochizuki won the Open The Dream Gate championship to the delight of every breathing human.
- The Jimmyz were forced to (finally) disband.
