Anyone have any ideas for names of my soon to be created Alliance headed by WWF? looking at having all my worldwide child companies in one alliance so I can take advantage of some non-US stars who my child companies have signed

WWWE - World Wide Wrestling Entertainment (Tverse) - you can even use some of the belts.

In my 1987 game (went ahead and made it two player, playing as WWF and JCP, with JCP being renamed NWA), I gave Danny Davis some time off after being hit with a DDT by Jake "The Snake" Roberts. I recently ran a Saturday Night's Main Event where Ted DiBiase retained the WWF Title against Tito Santana, thanks to Danny Davis making his return and somehow being allowed to make the three count when the previous referee was knocked out.

As the storyline goes, Ted DiBiase paid for the best lawyer money could buy for Danny Davis, who he feels got a raw deal when he was suspended for life plus ten years by President Jack Tunney. So this mystery lawyer (who will be revealed soon) managed to get an injunction on the suspension, which of course infuriates Jack Tunney. The lawyer will turn out to be Oliver Humperdink, but I have considered maybe changing his name in typical WWF fashion. What would be some good names to consider? Or would Oliver Humperdink fit just as well?

WWE Universe would be best.

They are largely the WWE belts from t he first brand split. No US title, but the IC title looks the same. I think the World title is the Eagle wings one, Women's was the one Trish made popular, and the Tag titles are the Raw belts from the Cade & Murdoch era. Whoever made them did a great representation of them.

On the NWA side of things of my 1987 game, the AI (before I took over) had turned Dusty Rhodes heel and made him NWA World Champion in September. Heading toward Starrcade (which I decided to push back until December), and building toward a Dusty/Flair main event. In the lead up, I turned Arn, Tully and JJ Dillon face, and Lex was already turned face by the AI before I had taken over. So naturally, I reunited the Four Horsemen as babyfaces. The AI also made Ric Flair the company's figurehead. So with all that said...

Who do I go with to win the big title match at the Granddaddy of Them All? Most people's natural decision would be to go with Flair as he's the man that the company is being built around and he can consistently get the best out of anyone. But on the flip side, Dusty hasn't been champion for very long, and I think to make him a strong heel, a good reign with some length to it would be in order, with Ol' Dusty dropping the belt sometime in the summer (most likely at Great American Bash).

And if I go with Dusty, there are some programs I can run with other workers. Naturally, he could feud with Nikita Koloff with the premise of Nikita being disappointed with Dusty turning his back on everything he had taught the big Russian. Sting is coming along, so he could be a short term challenger to get him over without winning the title. Now as to who Dusty would eventually drop the belt to, I'm debating between Luger and Flair for that one. On the one hand, it would be fitting for Flair to win it so that he can get the title back from the man who took it from him. On the other hand, a Luger title win could get him over as a top guy, and I could always have him drop it to Flair, with Flair turning back to his villainous ways in the process.

I almost think you HAVE to go with a Dusty Finish ... but god, I'd hate that as a fan at the biggest show of the year. Unless you do the Dusty Finish at Starrcade to set up Flair taking the belt say at SuperBrawl or even GAB if you want to hold off that long.

Too bad we can't really do a Dusty Finish in-game.

But it is the biggest show of the year for the NWA, and I really think the best course of action would be for Dusty to retain clean. Then Ric Flair could have some time off, and the storyline could either be he suffered some serious injuries in the match and has to recuperate, or he needs to take some time off to get his head right after not being able to regain the gold. Meanwhile, Dusty could retain against the Nikita Koloffs, Tully Blanchards and Arn Andersons of the world.

So have an interference/distraction outside the finish. Have a pinfall but shenanigans mid match, think Punk vs Cena at MITB 2011

Great minds think alike, because this morning I remembered that I have Paul E. Dangerously managing Dusty Rhodes. JJ Dillon could be taken out earlier in the night with a bump in one of the other Horsemen's earlier matches, which would take him out of the equation.

Ref takes a bump (even though it's a No DQ steel cage match... I gotta book somewhat like the NWA, dont'cha know!), and Flair has Dusty dead to rights. Paul E. throws his cell phone into the cage unbeknownst to Flair and distracts him. Dusty picks up the phone and wallops Flair in the head with it, tosses the evidence out of the cage, and revives the referee in time to make the three count.

Then I can send Ric Flair on a well deserved vacation while Dusty defends the gold against other babyfaces.

In no way would I use the name Oliver Humperdink for this character. That character was garish and brash. You'll want Humperdink as buttoned down as possible for this gimmick. Considering that. two thoughts would be running through my mind in this situation.

1: Is there some way I could play off of a Lowell "The Hammer" Stanley or Kalfus & Nachman? That is to say the local lawyers you see advertising on TV all the time. Around here we have a guy by the name of Joel Bieber whose been part of several advertised partnerships over the years and seemingly none of them can get along with him anymore. I'd probably be looking to make him part of the pseudonym as well. So like Lowell Bieber or Joel Nachman.

2: If I didn't like that combo, I'd take a famous TV lawyer and the actor who played him. So Raymond Burr's Perry Mason might become Perry Burr or maybe coin a Benjamin Griffith after Andy Griffith on Matlock. Sort of like how WWE came up with Clarence Mason. Except in that case they merged a famous real lawyer, Clarence Darrow, with the fictional Perry Mason.

I wish I had seen this earlier, though I did wind up going a Clarence Mason type route as far as how I decided upon Oliver Humperdink's WWF lawyer name. As it turns out, his real name was John Jay Sutton. I figured why not combine his kayfabe name with his real name? Thus I came up with Oliver John Sutton.

As for Humperdink being garish and brash, that is exactly why I thought he would be perfect as a sleazy 80s lawyer. If you happened to catch the episode of Prime Time Wrestling where Bobby Heenan brought in his kayfabe lawyer after Ken Patera hurt his neck, I think you'll see what I'm aiming for.

I even decided to go the route of the lawyer gets the manager's clients, except instead of doing it like the WWF did it with Clarence hoodwinking Jim Cornette to get Davey Boy Smith and Owen Hart, I had Oliver pay Jimmy Hart to manage Danny Davis, and Woman to manage Barry Horowitz (another story for another time). The reason he gives is that it is stressful for all parties involved to have everyone in the clients' ears, so he's making life a bit easier for everyone by managing their in-ring careers as well as their legal affairs. I'm having a bit of fun with this as after President Jack Tunney thought he outsmarted Oliver by figuring out how to get an injunction on Danny Davis being the referee for the IC Title rematch between Honky Tonk Man & Ricky Steamboat, Oliver is now representing Danny in a lawsuit against the WWF. Meanwhile, Oliver is representing Barry Horowitz in a lawsuit against Jim Duggan after Duggan walloped Horowitz with his 2x4, causing him to miss over a month of action and therefore not getting paid. Wrestlecrap at it's finest!

Cool

I need two separate tag team names for my latest SWF game.

I plan to team up:
  • Huracan Sandoval Jr. & James Prudence as pair of ultra-serious wrestlers (who are faces)
  • Mick Muscles and Jared Johnson as a pair of (Heel) lackeys, for "Big Money" Brandon James.

Temes, easy one for you on the first one. Pride and Prudence. See?

Muscles and Johns. Punny name, but why not? Are they not both Muscles and Johns? I think so!


Could I get a little bit of help? I was more trying to create a modification to the database by creating my only little thing and I'm still playing it because it is fun.

I've currently got Moon Suh and Saori Fujishima as Golden Glamour. They are a really good tag team and have pretty much held my tag team division together. They are currently the only two time winners, in fact they've held the title 4 times now.

I'm torn on what to do here. I'm tempted to keep them as champions and perhaps give another team the rub. However, with them having reached the Uppercard, it almost makes more sense to vacate the Tag title and try mixing them into a title picture. Surprisingly my Junior division is lacking top tier talent. It would also make sort of sense that they might want to challenge for a title, especially considering that Alicia Strong is my current Junior champion.

It isn't like I need them in the tag division at the moment anyways I've got tons of talent that can vie for the belts, so it isn't like it would be hurting things there.

Yet at the same time, I think they are going to be capped at Uppercard for the next while due to the Young Lion issue. It wasn't until nearly the end of the year that I finally got the owner (whom I'm playing), Rikyu Kada (best wrestler in the world!), over the hump of that same issue and that took nearly two full years. So hold them off for a year, let them and The Outlaws (the other team I am having the same issue with) battle it out for the tag titles then move both of them up after that seems like a reasonable idea as well.

I'm also wondering what I should do about my Heavyweight championship. I was actually planning on letting Emperor (Eien) Miyamoto retain for the full 9 month tour, but due to me forgetting the victor tag for him, Sessue Toyotomi is now my Heavyweight champion after my only event, Final Challenge. I do sort of want to promote Sessue as this fluke champion and have my Emperor win his title back, yet at the same time the guy I wanted to overthrow him is also waiting in the wings. I was positioning Logan Wolfsbaine for that like right at the start fo the new year.

At least my Junior championship is secure and I know where that is going. Alicia Strong is the champion and it is going to be her, Rikyu Kada, Americana and Storm Spillane fighting over it.
