Default Hitting Rock Bottom: The Genghis Rahn Story

What exactly is "Rock Bottom"?

Well, there isn't an easy answer for that. For everybody, it's different. It could be a number of things, being unemployed, not having enough money, committing crimes but for me, it was my addiction.

Look, I know what you expect me to say. "I can't live without wrestling" and yada, yada, yada but the truth is, wrestling isn't my addiction, it's painkillers.

Addiction isn't just having that one last drink or drag or pill over and over again without ever really quitting. It' s much more than that. It's when your brain makes you think you are doing something for a particular reason when in actuality, you're doing it for an entirely different reason that you never realised, that is an addiction. That you can convince yourself that everything you do is because you want to, not because it fills an unnecessary need. It's damning really, that your brain is as powerful as it is. People say that we as people have free will, but I don't believe that.

We all do the things we do for a reason and sometimes it's for a good reason and sometimes it's for a bad reason, but there's always a reason, always. We don't just get up in the morning and decide what we'll do out of the goodness of our hearts, we need to know we'll get something back. That's why I set up my own wrestling company.

I told myself a thousand times over I was doing it for the right reasons and I wasn't. I did so many things that I regret because of this one thing and I've never been able to forgive myself for it, and that's what I am writing right now. I told myself something that wasn't true and it affected so much around me and I couldn't see it.

So this is my story.... This is how I hit Rock Bottom.

A really interesting premises, DAVE. I could totally see Rahn as the Cornellverse version of Sabu. Knowing that, such a story would be sadly realistic.

I'm interested to see where you go from here.

Okay, before I can tell you what rock bottom is, I gotta bring you back to the very beginning. When I decided that setting up a wrestling promotion was a good idea.

So, I lived in Arizona and I decided I'd meet up with a friend, in Pittsburgh...


That's quite a trek to make even if it was to see an old friend. We reminisced for awhile about TCW's hardcore division and the best match we ever had in the division, which was Boone and I battling it out for the TCW Hardcore title at Just Another Day 2005, Boone won that day. However, Boone knew I was here for more than just a friendly visit and I told him about what I wanted to do, create my own promotion.

"Well, I don't really know, you ain't exactly asking a man who knows much about that stuff"

"I don't expect you to, what I do want to know is how you keep going? I can barely walk but I've got this unbelievable urge to wrestle."
That statement was a lie, but I didn't know that at the time.

"I hurt too man, I just deal with it I guess. I don't think I'm as bad off as you but monthly shows are a lot easier to manage than weekly shows. That's something I know for sure"

"So, you're saying it's plausible? For me to get back in the ring I mean?"

"Yeah, I'd think so. Hell, you don't even need to work every show, if you don't want too"


I was looking for confirmation that this idea of mine was being done for the right reasons, of course, I didn't actually know what my reasoning was but I think you're always aware if only in your subconscious of what your intentions are, I guess I was trying to tell myself to stop without explicitly spelling it out for myself. Unluckily, Boone didn't stop me. Some would say that I should blame him, but I could never do that, he suffered enough because of me. Besides, it's not like I have anybody but myself to blame.

"Look, let me get onto Mitch for you, you guys can talk and maybe you could pick up a few tips."

"Thanks, Boone, I owe you one."


To this day, I still don't think I ever repayed that favour.

So Pittsburgh....

After I talked to Johnny, the meeting with Mitch came soon after, I wasn't hugely into asking Mitch for anything, just some tips. I had picked Tommy Cornell's brain in the past about this, so I guess this was more about finding whats appealing to a PSW sort of crowd then a TCW one.


I didn't stay long talking to Mitch. This wasn't exactly something useful for him, just doing a favour.

"So, anything else you want to discuss?"

"Yeah, one thing. A working agreement? Any chance you and I could help each other out?"


Long story short he rejected me, at least at that point. Having owned a company I guess I see where he was coming from at the time. Mitch is a business man before he's a friend but he's a real nice guy, eventually everybody has good things to say about him and I am no different. It took a while, the problem is, I've cause him a lot of pain since that first meeting, he probably regrets it to no end now, but looking back on it now, things could have been so much different, and a lot better for both Mitch and Boone if they had never met me.

UCW Ultimate Challenge 1

UCW Ultimate Championship Tournament
Greg Rayne (Rayne Man) v Austin Smooth

I have to be honest I had never heard of any of them, i've been looking into them and Rayne seems good, he is a steady hand, good worker like the kind you need when you open a company, a relaible hand, and Austin doesnt look half bad, seems like a rookie, that he is, but doesnt seem theres something holding him back, i wonder how far can he grow, but lets be realistic he is still a rookie, still has a lot to learn, and usually the rookies are there to learn from a better worker, check, present themselves to the public, check, and put over the experienced guy, check, but he is one to watch, while Rayne should win because he is a reliable hand, and he has better skills and popularity than Austin,he was the one employed by the biggest company at the time, and I feel he could put on a better match next round than Austin, Im only wondering, Isnt the name Greg Rayne copyrighten by SWF?

UCW Ultimate Championship Tournament
Madman Boone v Sayeed Ali

This match, this is the only match i have my doubts with, even the mathces of the next rounds that will need the winner of this match, i still think that those results would happen with either of this two going into next round, so lets dig deep into this match, this could have been a Main event by itself, two great hardcore wrestlers, Madman is a good wrestler, he is not Tommy Cornell, but he is a wrestler that can hold his own weight in the ring, 21 years in the business, are said very fast, but is a good accomplishment, former 2 times Regional Champion of Pittsburgh, the last being less than 2 years ago, former 2 time Total Championship Wrestling World Hardcore Champion, being one of the faces of the division, and a former 1 time Total Championship Wrestling International Heavyweight Champion, probably by level of company and title, the most prestigious title he ever held, before he was transitioned to the hardcore division, he is 39, probably a couple of years past his prime, but not old enough to be declining yet, his body seems to be in a transition face, but i think if he isnt already on the list, he could be one year to year and a half away from being in time decnline but untli that happens he is still one of your top draws, a name most people would know, to go watch your shows; Sayeed Ali, to this level he is an Excellent wrestler, again he isn't Cornell, but still one heck of a wrestler, 11 years as a wrestler, that isnt something to sneeze at, and more at his age, he has the experience and is at the Prime of his career, former 3 times, Regional Champion of Ontario, the only title he has held to date, but for almost then years he has established himself at the top flight of the company, he is 29, 10 years younger than his opponent, a wrestler in his prime, Im still surprised he hasnt been picked up by any of the Canadian Two, and probably they wont wait much longer, the most probable being CGC, with its roster being raided by NOTBPW, signing anyone with a single bit of technical ability, and the American big 3 trying to fill their lower card, CGC will have to look into the independent scene in Canada; now why I'm choosing Boone, is simple we see this guy that is in his prime, that has a lot of ability, that is young, that fit your product, and is American, but we forget that he has made his entire career in Canada, yes his name has been dropped in the US here and there, probably his biggest American appearance bing his participation in the 2013 Rip Chord Invitational of MAW, look im not saying he wont be champion some day, im not saying he wont be a big deal in UCW, maybe if he had been in any other match, except with harry allen, I would have passed him automaticallyto semifinals, but only Boone or Allen would have more reason to pass than him, I will explain this better at the main event, but for now, you just have to know, that in this moment in time there are some issues at hand that he maybe not the adequate to face, I know I may be wrong, I feel very mixed with this result, but im sticking by it.

UCW Ultimate Championship Tournament
Hugh de Aske v Harry Allen

Man, this sounds like a great match, not anythig that would main event a show but still a good match, this is a perfect match to go see in a Regional show in the middle of the card, and you would go home happy having enjoyed it, so lets see the participants, Hugh de Aske, I love this guy, I discoverd him while watching some British and Europen independents (playing in Scotland as SNP, and I also used him in a game as ROF), I feel he is pretty close to hitting his prime at the beggining of the year, he is a very solid wrestler, very young 6 years in the business at 27, and a former 3 times Ontario Hardcore Champion, one of only 3 people two hold the championship 3 times, problem, the same than Sayeed Ali, he might have grown in Boston but he has made his entire career in Canada, he has decent popularity there, and he is also known in the british independent scene, but he is even less known than Ali in the US, the biggest upside is that popularity can be built, where ability he already has, so I see how he could turn out to be a star, and im certainly his fan; Harry Allen, man Harry Allen, what a wrestler, I will never understand why he was released by TCW, more now that they are being raided by every company bigger than them, they are in this face where they can take the independent stars, and make them superstars just to be taken away by the 2 Behemots of America, the Technical Canadians, the 2 japanese giants, the british monopoly, and their closest rivals the Mexicans, they are in direct competition about wrestling in the border, they could use a reliable body as Allen in their roster, probably the biggest casualty of the cutting of the cruiserweight division that just left him wandering the midcard, but hey their loss your gain, maybe the only 2 bad things about him, is that even if he is a decent wrestling, I dont feel his wrestling style fits this company and his age, 38 years, he is younger than boone so i can surely say he isnt yet on decline, but he already is past his prime, probably 2 or 3 years before he goes on decline, but his age brings with him very needed experience for your company, 20 years in the business, 17 of them he spent them in the second (now third) biggest company in america, at the top flight of the cruiserweight division and a reliable midcard, and his achievements shouldnt be forgotten, a former 4 times One half of the Total Championship Wrestling World Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions, he being one of only six people to hold those championships and being the most time champion, former 2 times Total Championship Wrestling World Cruiserweight Champion, wher he was one of the faces of the division and only one of seven to hold it and one of four to hold it more than one time, former 3 times Total Championship Wrestling All Action Champion, I never understood this title it seemed like a bad attempt to capture the magic of the cruiserweight division but also use middlewieights midcarders that weren't doing anything, making the whole division pointless and a former 1 time One Half of the Total Championship Wrestling World Tag Team Champions, being that the most prestigious title he ever held and where in a pretty good program with Hill and Anderson, who are two of my favorite workers; at this point in time Allen is your most recognisable worker, that could carry the main event, lackking a little of hardcore experience would be the only problem, and he has a better shot than de Aske, as he has never worked for a professional US company.

UCW Ultimate Championship Tournament
Conner Johnson (Conner Threepwood) v Sgt Bubba Lee West

Compared to some of the matchups this is a little underwhelming, but i know not all matches have to be an spectacle, it feels like a predictable match (watch as i get it wrong), and Conner will have to carry the match, simple as that, Conner Johnson, a good performer, better known for his technical abilities, he hasnt been proved in a hardcoere enviroment, but his tehcinal abilities wont be a detriment for him, still young 29 years of age, just in his prime, having been in the business 11 years, 7 of which he spent them in the Canadian giants NOTBPW, i've seen a pattern of a few wrestlers that made themselves in Canada, he also is american although he has never wrestled in america, still he has good popularity and is backed by his pedigree of technical wrestling and his Canadian popularity, lastly but not less important, a former 3 times One half of the North of The Border Pro Wrestling Canadian Tag Team Champions, although NOTBPW are the leading Canadian promoyion they havent changed their championship status to World Titles, being recognized then only in Canada, is not known if is is by their own decision the lack of change of status, or if theres something prohibiting them from doing the change, ironically their rivals in the West, CGC have recognized World titles in their Top singles and tag divisions causing a title recognized as a World championship, be less prestigious than a National Championship; Sergeant Bubba Lee West, former Sergeant in the Army, but has seen been dismissed and began wrestling, he will be appreciated by his service to his country, but his wrestling career not so much, somewhat old 38 years, but young enough to not be in decline, but he has passed his prime, having jusy been wrestling for 7 years he entered the business already somewhat late, he couldnt hava a large prime, not a good wrestler but seems half decent in hardcore stuff, he hasnt worked for any recognized company being this his first chance, has decent popularity, but his bad attitude could caise this chance not to last; although more popular then Conner, West has more downs than ups, and even being less popular, Conner still has the resume to refuse to lose to him.

UCW Ultimate Championship Tournament
Rayne/Smooth v Boone/Ali

Greg Rayne vs Madman Boone, with this being a 8 man tournament is common to see this reliable guy make it to the semifinals, but here is where we separate real stars from men, I have high hopes from Rayne, but with a name as Boone at the other side of the ring, I see him having to do the job, but I think this could be apretty good match, and I hope it doesnt dissaponts, I feel that we my predictions is pretty obvious who will go to the finals, ot of the semis, but sometimes the predictable final is predictable, because is the best option, so good tournament from Rayne, made it as far as he could, Boone goes to have a chance to the championhsip in the final.

UCW Ultimate Championship Tournament
de Aske/Allen v Johnson/West

Harry Allen vs Conner Johnson, this match could be a very technical match, very Aerial and flashy, I dont know how the fans will react to it, I hope it doesnt flops this two have a chance to put match off the night, thinking they can put a better match than Boone, again Conner is in the Rayne position, he just is a little bit better, but his Pop will cause him to be left in the semifinal, but again good tournament, and good luck to Allen in the final

UCW Ultimate Championship Tournament
Rayne/Smooth/Boone/Ali v de Aske/Allen/Johnson/West

Madman Boone vs Harry Allen, here it is the main event, this are the two more recognisable names of these beggining promotion, and im sure that the fans expected to see this match in the finals, when they payed for their tickets, and is alright you have to use your big names popularity to attract the fans to your first show, knowing you dont have that reputation to pull them just because of the company, my only fear is that these guys are in the older side of the spectrum, and having had two matches each before in the night, and having to do a third, i fear they could be exhausted and will not put a match to standard or would do a very slow paced match, but other than that im excited for that match, this 2 began almost at the same time in TCW and began their prime there, i dont think they have crossed paths yet, even with all those years working in the same company, but I still think thy can pull of a good match, altohugh Boone will have the advantage with the Hardcore stipulation but, I have my reasons to call the upset and why we are seeing the cruiserweight aerial technician beating the hardcore Icon in a Hardcore match, and this is what I was taliking about on the first match, not necesarily the best wrestler or the must soothed for the championship will win, we cannot forget this is a wrestling company and to survive it has to make profit, you need to attract people and the way to do this is having a name most people will recognize at the top of the company, and although Boone has been working in the Northeast coast, for some years the one who must recently was on TV programming was Allen and this shows in their little difference in popularity, this two are the most known workers and this main event would attract more people, I know for a fact than sooner rather than later we will see Boone and Ali with the championship, but if they are going to have the chance to do it, UCW needs to survive, and to survive needs the publicity stunt champion that can attract more people.

I feel pretty good with my picks, but the only clue i can get from this card is that you dont have a face/heel divide, because if you do i dont know how you have it balanced, because by going by logical alignements you end up with a lot of heel vs heel and face vs face matches

Is so good to see you again, you have been missed, atleast by me

PS: Wow, I wrote a lot, I had missed writing like this for one of your diaries

Ultimate Challenge 1
Friday, Week 3, January, 2016
The Simmons Center, South West
18 people in attendance



v
Greg Rayne (D-) v Austin Smooth ( D-)


After Dane O Hara introduces us to the show, Rayne and Smooth make their way to the ring. The match starts with Smooth really showing his technical ability and Rayne can't keep up. At least at the beginning, Rayne quickly turns it around with his brawling and comes out on top with a Darkness Raynes.

Greg Rayne wins by Darkness Raynes in 6:03, 40/D+




v
Madman Boone (D+) v Sayeed Ali (C-)

A wild brawl to say the least. Boone and Ali really batter each other. After Boone knocks over the ref, Ali gets a chair and hits Boone before putting the chair on the ground and hitting a G.B.H Driver onto the chair for the win.

Sayeed Ali wins by G.B.H Driver in 5:51, 47/D






With the win in the bag, Ali picks up the chair again and hits Boone over and over again. He continues to hit Boone until he stops moving as we see Boone's forehead is pumping blood. Ali leaves showing no remorse.
31/E+



v
Hugh de Aske (D) v Harry Allen (D+)

A very even match between these two. Aske begins the match well but Allen shows his experience as the match goes on and turns it around. Aske can't come back and Allen ends it with a Flying Fist Drop.

Harry Allen wins by Flying Fist Drop in 6:06, 47/D





Kiss
Hello everybody, I'm Nicole Kiss, here with Conner Johnson, Conner, you face Sgt. Bubba Lee West tonight. A discharged army sergeant who is obviously tough as nails, what's your strategy tonight?

Johnson
Strategy? I am a competitor Nicole. I live for competition, that's why I'm here. To prove myself as an elite competitor, a guy who's going to put blood sweat and tears into what he does and tonight, the sergeant will find this out the hard way. I may have to win three fights tonight to be the champ but that is right up my street and tonight, I will prove it.

52/D+



v
Sgt. Bubba Lee West (D) v Conner Johnson (D-)

Despite Bubba's strength advantage Johnson does well to battle him. He doesn't make anything easy and despite being dominated early, Johnson does come back. He ties Bubba in knots and locks in the CJ Stretch and that's it.

Conner Johnson wins by CJ Stretch in 6:13, 39/D-





Kiss
Nicole Kiss back again, this time with Sayeed Ali, can you please explain to us, why on Earth would you do that to Boone? He's a legend.

Ali
Well you, Ms Kiss are a part of the problem. Everybody talks about legends and all this, well I say, out with the old and in with the new and guess what princess, I'm the new guy on the block. Despite the fact I've been around for eleven years, despite the titles and achievements I have gotten, nobody seems to notice. Well tonight, I'm putting it out, My name is Sayeed Ali and I'm gonna show you what a real hardcore legend can do right now, and that is Certified!

55/C-



v
Greg Rayne (D-) v Sayeed Ali (D+)

Ali lives up to his promise really putting the hurt to Rayne. Although he survives the first wave and gets some offense in, Ali comes back with a second wave and Rayne looks outmatched. However, when all looks lost, Rayne kicks into another gear, trading punches and big moves with Ali. A G.B.H Driver looks to be the end but Rayne counters it and quickly hits a Darkness Raynes for the win before quickly fleeing from the ring not to feel the wrath of his opponent.
Greg Rayne wins by Darkness Raynes in 10:01, 45/D



v
Harry Allen (D+) v Conner Johnson (D-)

Johnson has the clear edge in the early goings, much fitter and with more stamina, Allen, who's a decade older, can't seem to keep up. However, it's all a charade. Allen takes the blows and wear downs in stride, picking his spots to hit his moves and it works. He gets the chance to end it with a Flying Fist Drop and it lands perfectly.
Harry Allen wins by Flying Fist Drop in 9:57, 43/D





Kiss
Here I have one of tonight's finalists, Greg Rayne. First of all, congratulations on getting to tonight's final. You really showed another level in your battle with Ali, but your opponent Harry Allen is a crafty vet, what can you do to make sure you don't fall to his tricks?

Rayne
What does it matter what he does, Nicole. I'm not here to play games, I'm here to create a new story for myself. A new beginning, a new start. I've gotten to the finals and that's just the beginning. Allen is one hell of a competitor, I'll give him that but the difference is simple, I have a dark side. I have a dark place inside me that I can exploit to get the victory. I'm not proud of it, I'm not bragging about it, I just know it's there and tonight, it's going to help me win the Ultimate Championship title.

51/D+





Kiss
Mr Allen, you just heard the comments made by Greg Rayne, what do you think of that and how is it going to affect you going into the final match up?

Allen
I won't lie, Greg has done well to get where he has tonight. He's a good kid and has a lot of talent and potential and honestly, I do think he has a dark side. Another level, if you will. That makes him dangerous, but the best I can do is rely on my experience. Pick my spots and hopefully it works as well as it has all night.

59/C-




v
Greg Rayne (E+) v Harry Allen (D)

Early, the match is a tentative one. Neither man really want to make that big mistake and it isn't until Rayne starts to attack with more vigour things start to flow. Of course, it works out well for Allen as he uses his brain to study Rayne and is able to dodge his attacks and use his momentum against him. Unfortunately, as the match becomes more and more in favour of Allen, Rayne begins to go to his dark place. Screaming through the pain of a crossface, he breaks out of it and begins his violent attack on Allen. It's tough to watch and busts Allen open with mere punches as this darkness inside Rayne is shown to be very dangerous and it looks like the belt is already his.


However, Allen isn't stupid. After using the ref as shield, Allen gets back up from an old friend. Ford Gumble attacks Rayne with a chair. The attack is brief and swift, but deadly. A Flying Fist Drop by Allen, gives him the pin as the ref slowly counts to three.

Harry Allen wins by Flying Fist Drop in 15:04, 39/D-




The beatdown continues after the bell. Stomp after stomp by the two friends on a helpless Rayne. With Rayne defenseless and in pain, the chair comes back into play. Being held up by Gumble, Allen smashes the chair against Raynes skull and he falls to the floor, blood gushing from his forehead. Allen and Gumble stand above him, Allen holding his new title high in the air.

40/D-



Show Rating: 44/D

Before I go off and ramble, these little post show "chats" will basically me explaining anything about the show that pops into my head, nothing to do with behind the curtain posts which will stand alone. Anywho....

So, why Greg Rayne in the finals other than Boone or even CJ? Mainly narrative reasons, but I do like Rayne. I think I hold him in higher regard than his skills deserve. Boone is going to be used for something else and CJ, well, as much as I like him too, I just think I have something for Rayne that I may not have for CJ, though I liked his promo, built up the perfect kind of character I wanted for him.

So, yeah, Allen's a heel, all will be explained next show but I like this idea, a lot actually and I have no regrets about the first show. Though looking back on it, I could've had a bigger return on an Allen v Ali or Allen v Boone final. Then again hindsight is 20/20.

My MVP? Wrestler would be Ali, he performed the best tonight over his four segments. All round, gotta give it to Nicole Kiss. She really helped with those promo's with that Sex Appeal. I feel, especially in UCW, that backstage interviewers should be based on Sex Appeal as that's the product. In my opinion, backstage interviewers shouldn't be rated on anything unless they add to the segment. Take mean Gene, probably the best interviewer of all time, because of the flow he had and general ability to look interested and make the worker stand out. Something that the backstage announcers nowadays don't do, they just recite scripted lines and don't add or takeaway from the segment, they're basically there to ask the question. So, unless you're a Jenny Playmate or Dharma Gregg and have the charisma to add something to an interview, I usually have them down as not rated or Sex Appeal. Maybe that's me "cheating" the mechanics, but I don't think it is nor do I care.

Also, thanks to XMultiGames for the awesome analysis on the tournament. Was incredibly interesting to read your thoughts about workers before the show was up. Also, also, thanks to KnowYourEnemy for the C-Verse DOTM nomination, after a long time away from the boards and coming back with two new diaries, It was nice to know my writing hadn't gone completely to the dogs, so I'm very flattered and very appreciative for the nomination.

So, if you wanna answer a question, then do but it isn't necessary, but who was your MVP for the show? Also, always open to constructive criticism whether on the thread or through PM or whatever, so feel free to tell me what you loved and what you hated.

UCW Ultimate Championship Title
Harry Allen v Greg Rayne or Madman Boone
Harry Allen will face Greg Rayne for the UCW Ultimate Championship once again at Vantines Day Massacre, that is, if he can make it. Madman Boone has stated he will step in for Rayne if he can't make it but after the crazy beating Allen and Ford gave him at the tournament, is it really even worth believing Rayne will show up? Then again Boone was in hospital himself when he made these comments after Ali beat him up, whose to say Allen will have an opponent at all.

Hugh de Aske v Sayeed Ali
Both these men fell victim to one of the two finalists in the tournament last time out. However, Ali probably made the bigger impact, not only making it a round further than de Aske but also beating hardcore legend Madman Boone to a pulp. Can de Aske live with the violent nature of Ali?

Conner Johnson v Ford Gumble
Conner Johnson didn't fall victim to Ford's heinous attack at Ultimate Challenge 1, even when he had Allen in trouble. That being said, Johnson isn't one to give in just because his opponent has a friend, but with Ford's actions, he shouldn't underestimate him either.

OOC. There will be a few behind the curtain posts before the show, so plenty of time to predict.

UCW Valentines Day Massacre

UCW Ultimate Championship Title
Harry Allen v Greg Rayne or Madman Boone

I actually like the way this story came about it, I knew the backstage reasons to give him the title, but the story translated it perfectly to the people as a heel that even as champion dont represent the ideals of the company and is a cowardly heel having to be saved by his bigger partner, and I love it, It was always going to be risky to have him be the heel as he is a lot better in the face role, but with the style of the company that he doesnt represent, the role practically fell on his lap, for me its to early to have hi lose it, also theres always the Gumble factor, interfering, and the fact that the opponent is uncertain doesnt scream security that would be needed for a title change, so for these reasons Allen wins.

Hugh de Aske v Sayeed Ali

Oh, a 4C hardcore classic, brilliant, I see you are a person of great taste on hardcore wrestling, this match is pretty curious, and certainly a match which I hope does well, Ali and De Aske, both have only been under contract withc 4C, Ali since September of 2006, De Aske since July 2010, so they have been together for the better part of 4 years, 6 months, with 4C having 1 show a month it would make 54 events together, so by pure chance, they most have worked together atleast once, is difficult to think in which context could have been that encounter, Ali was already on the Min Event scene when De Aske was hired, and him has been working on the hardcore division, so probably in a meningful feud match they havent wrestled, but probably in a
Ali squash, but of what i have seen of both they are pretty good hardcore and pretty good workers in general so im expecting if not a classic a pretty good match, Ali will take the win as he seems better fit for the top scene, is pretty well established, is more popular in all contexts, and is the local as being American and De Aske Belgian, so all the factors point to an Ali Victory but I know De Aske wont go down without a fight.


Conner Johnson v Ford Gumble

I should have seen this coming, but i'll give it to you, you caught me off guard, I had my reasons to think he wasnt going to get hired, but he did, and I couldnt be happier, for me the Young Guns was one of the underappreciated teams of TCW, so watching them make a comeback makes me happy, now lets see the new participant; Ford Gumble; poor Ford, the last 10 years of his career have been a downwhirl spiral, and thats a shame, because in his day he was a pretty good worker, and I have to admit it, he still is a decent one,but even as decent as he is his style isnt the core style of the company, lets see how much that holds him back, I rememeber that I said that Harry Allen was the biggest casualty of the disbanding of the Cruiserweight Division, because his career began to lack sense without an specific goal, thats why they were good in the Cruiserweight Division, adn never got back to the leves he once had, but in a short term basis probably the one who so his career crumbled quicklier was Ford Gumble, he literally became a jobber as TCW booking comitee didnt have anything planned for him, he was part of the debacle that was the All Action division, then worked there 4 years more, before being declared surplus from the company, while his tag team partner stayed there 6 years more, in that time he has been unheard in the wrestling business, he gained a little of weight, but it seems as more because his physic became poor as he didnt trained as hard as before, now he isnt the lightweight that shook the tag ranks with Allen, but with a little of time to reacustom to training and a little encouragement from the bosses he might be able to return to his former self, equally to Allen he is 38 Years old, and he has 20 years of wrestling expereince, of those 20, 12 of them were in the second (now third) biggest company in america, at the top flight of the cruiserweight tag team division and a reliable cruiserweight single, was never given a chance outside his comfort zone and used as a jobber in his last years there, but even with all the bad stuff his achievements shouldnt be overlooked, a former 4 times One half of the Total Championship Wrestling World Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions, he being one of only six people to hold those championships and being the most time champion along with Harry Allen all the times, former 1 time Total Championship Wrestling World Cruiserweight Champion, where he was one of the faces of the division and only one of seven to hold the title, although he only did it once, and a former 1 time One Half of the Total Championship Wrestling World Tag Team Champions, being that the most prestigious title he ever held and where in a pretty good program with Hill and Anderson, who are two of my favorite workers; I feel Gumble right now would be overlooked or grouped into a package with Allen, but he could be much more, and might actually surprise a couple of people, now on the match, I like Johnson he is actually a good technical worker, so even as I dont think it will be necessary I know he could carry the match to a good performance, but im sure Gumble will pull his own weight around, and Gumble is part of the bigger storyline in the main event as Allen right hand, so I think he should be kept strong in his debut, also although i like Johnson he doesnt scream Main Eventer even at this level so that hurts him a little bit, while Gumble in this company I wouldn't have a problem visualizing him as one of the top heels in a tandem, that he is so for credibility and story Gumble wins, and lets hope he sint so rusty.

As is fun for me to write all the miniscule details Im going to try to predict your Face/Heel divide

Face:

Conner Johnson
Greg Rayne
Hugh De Aske
Madman Boone

Heel:

Austin Smooth
Ford Gumble
Harry Allen
Sayeed Ali
Sgt. Bubba Lee West

And that's how I found Karen Killer passed out in a bush back in '99... Anyway, what were we talking about? Oh yeah, UCW.

So when i set up that company I thought I was doing good, and I probably was in scheme of things, but I opened for the wrong reasons. Don't get me wrong, I had money, this wasn't to finance my pain killer addiction, it was to fuel it, I guess that's the same thing in retrospect.

Before we can get into the actual abuse and what happened because of it, you gotta remember, setting up a company and a show, that's incredibly time consuming, so for about three months at the end of 2015 and start of 2016, I was clean. Coulda pissed in 30 cups and all would have been clean, no question.

The UCW atmosphere was so laid back backstage, you know. Boone was happy to put guys over, Ali and Hugh were happy to get a few more bucks, Ford was happy just to be getting some kind of paycheck, but on that night things were a little different than what would become of the locker room.

Could cut the tension with a knife, no joke. We had a few cliques, I guess you could call them, guys who knew each other banded together. Ford and Harry, couple of 4C guys, Boone and myself, we all had our groups. Even though Ford and Allen and Gumble and myself snd Boone had been in the same company for years, we never really spoke there. We were in the hardcore and they were in the cruiserweight division. We faced a few times and that was really the only interaction we ever had. So that night, everybody kept to their own groups, that was until....


"Excuse me, Mr. Rahn?"

"Harry, don't call me that, Rahn is fine."

"Oh, okay, um, Rahn, just, ah, Ford and I really appreciate the opportunity you have given us, we really appreciate it. Ford is a bit too reserved to say it but, we really are grateful."

"Well, Harry it's my pleasure to give you the opp.."



And that was it, lightning struck. I won't lie, what Harry said to me that night really shows how much of a tremendous person that man is. He'd do anything for anybody, he's golden, one and a million. Yet, despite his talent, his personality and sheer likability, this industry had chewed him up and spit him out like a nobody. Harry was so much more than what TCW had branded him, just a complete gentleman and right there, I decided to change the tournament. It was originally supposed to be won by Boone, but I changed the booking after that and I don't regret it either. Boone was fine with it too as long as he got a good program with somebody, so I guaranteed him that. I'm really happy with what i did with Harry, pity. After what happened, I haven't spoken to him in such a long time, I just hope he's doing well.....

Anyway, back to what was happening with me.

The whole addiction part of my life at that point was, I guess you could say non-existent, as I actually wasn't really taking anything at that point. Addiction is something you rely on and I wasn't relying on anything in late 2015 as I had already mentioned, I was clean but there's always that itch there.

A sore knee here, a twinge in the shoulder there, you kind of look at that bottle for a moment and want to go and take some. I guess I didn't based purely on the fact UCW was open.

UCW was such a journey that I both love and hate it's existence. It brought me a lot of good memories that I hold to this day, but probably the things I think about the most when people ask me about it is the bad ones. I'm sure we'll get to all of them, i's gonna be tough to relive them again, but this story needs to be told. So, after the first show, I didn't talk to anybody about UCW for awhile, I always liked to wind down after an event, even if I didn't compete. Usually there would be some kind of pain killing narcotic in my veins but tonight, I was clean.

I just sat there thinking that I had done such a good thing for the industry that I started to feel better then I ever deserved to be. Looking back now all I feel is regret and sorrow for it all. A lot of people talk about how I helped this person and that person and I did this and the wrestling industry is better and blah, blah, blah, but who cares about that at this point.

It isn't like I'm in the industry anymore. the only thing that I see is three concrete walls, metal bars and a bucket to sh!t in. Other than that, what is there to say. I don't even deserve what I have right now, I just need to tell my side of the story.

Valentines Day Massacre
Saturday, Week 2, January, 2016
The Proving Grounds, South West
24 people in attendance (Up from 18)





Allen and Gumble come to the ring. Allen sports darker hair and blue streaks in his hair and a smug, condescending look on his face. He swiftly gets on the mic.

Allen
I’m sure, I know that everybody out here want to know why, why I used my good friend Ford Gumble to become the UCW World champion, but the truth is, if you haven’t realised it yet then you’ve missed the god damn point. I ain’t here to clear up anything because I don’t have to do anything. I did what I did because of reasons and if you’re too god damn stupid to figure out why, then you don’t deserve to know cause the fact of the matter is this, if you don’t look, you’ll never find and too many of you fans don’t want to see whats right in front of you. I have proven my worth here, beat three other wrestlers in one night and yet, I’m not appreciated. I’m called a cheater. A wuss. A nobody. Well guess what A$$holes? I don’t need your approval because I…


Allen is interrupted by Madman Boone, who comes out to the ramp.

Boone
I’m not here to interrupt your little rant there little Harry boy, but I do have an announcement. Greg Rayne has not shown up tonight, so I will be the one to face little boy Harry for the UCW World Championship.

The crowd cheer as Boone smiles atop the ramp. Allen doesn’t seem that bothered about it.

Allen
Okay, good for you Boone. Because you my brainless friend are a part of the problem.

Boone
Please… Tell me where you get that idea?

Harry smirks and waggles his finger at Boone.

Allen
Not yet, but after our match later, when you’re drowning in a pool of your own blood, I’ll enlighten you as to why Ultimate Challenge was just the beginning.
52/D+




v
Brady McManus (D+) v Ricky Turner (E+)

An even match to begin the event as both men show what they can do. Brady does a nice dropkick that is equaled by Turner. Neither man really gets the upper hand, that is until Brady runs off the ropes but Turner ducks under the clotheslines and when Brady comes back, Superkick by Ricky Turner and that's enough for the win.

Ricky Turner wins by Superkick in 6:01, 42/D






Nicole Kiss
Hello everybody, beside me is none other than Ultimate Challenge semi-finalist Sayyed Ali. Sayeed what…

Ali
Stop Nikky. I know what you bout to ask, why I ain’t the UCW champ? Well, it’s simple really, I showed up to that tournament for one simple reason and that was to hurt Madman Boone. Looks like I didn’t do a good enough job, but I got my sights on somebody else. That’s right, Hugh de Aske.

Kiss
Speaking of Hugh, have you anything you want to tell him?

Ali
Yeah, I do. Welcome to the streets, pretty boy. Where I am the only thing you need to be worried about… CERTIFIED!
53/D+



&v&
Dak Allen (E) & Zak Jones (E-) v Pvt. Silencer (D+) & Sgt. Bubba Lee West (D)

It's a very simple destruction for the Sgt and his new arrival to the bootcamp. Allen and Jones really can't get any offense in and Silencer hits a Drop Zone and that's it.

Pvt. Silencer & Sgt. Bubba Lee West wins by Drop Zone in 5:01, 36/D-





Kiss
Kiss back again with a post match interview this time with Sgt. Bubba Lee West and Pvt. Silencer. Guys you looked really good out there, but where did the Pvt. come from?

Sgt
THE PVT. IS MAH PROTEGE MS KISS, AND WE ARE GONNA PUT A WORLD OF HURT ON ALL THE MAGGOTS HERE IN UCW!! WE ARE HERE TO TEACH DISCIPLINE AND TO SHOW ALL THESE GOOD FOR NOTHING PANSY B!TCH PIECES OF TRASH HOW TO DO THINGS! THE PVT. IS HERE ON MY REQUEST AND THAT’S ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
52/D+



v
Conner Johnson (D) v Ford Gumble (D-)

Johnson starts the match well by grounding Gumble to stop his brawl heavy style and it works well at first but Gumble does get back on his feet and begins to dictate the flow of the match. The ultra competitive Johnson never gives up and tries to rally numerous times during the match Gumble cuts him off. With Gumble hitting a clothesline, Gumble looks to end the match...


But out of nowhere, Madman Boone enters the ring and cracks Gumble over the head with a chair, knocking him clean out. Motionless on the mat, CJ comes back to life not knowing what happened and locks in the CJ Stretch. Gumble is aleady out though and the ref drops his hand three times signifying he is unconscious giving Johnson the win.

Conner Johnson wins by CJ Stretch in 10:06, 38/D-





Kiss
Nicole Kiss here and Boone is right here beside me, Boone what on Earth was that about?

Boone
Just making the playing field fair little lady, Gumble was going to cause problems for me in my world title match, I know that, you know that and the fans know that, so I had my own insurance plan, much like little Harry boy had his at Ultimate Challenge. Well now it’s my turn, tonight, little boy Harry loses that belt barely after even winning it.

61/C



v
Hugh de Aske (D) v Sayeed Ali (C-)

Hugh and Ali brawl from the get go and Hugh finds out that is a bad idea early. Ali is bigger, stronger and better at this kind of match. Hugh then uses his technical and high flying abilities and gets some good offense in. It's not enough though as Ali hits the G.B.H Driver and that was it.

Sayeed Ali wins by G.B.H Driver in 11:54, 49/D+




v
Harry Allen (D) v Madman Boone (D)

With Gumble dealt with, Boone looks very confident in this match. He tries to catch Allen but he can't and Allen uses run and gun tactics to get some offense in but a clothesline takes Allen's head off. Boone is in control and uses a kendo stick on Allen's back but Allen dodges the last one and hits a spinning heel kick. Allen is in control now but Boone does come back with a a nasty forearm to the head. Boone sets up for the Boone and Bust...


What the hell?!??! Is that Bobby Thomas?!?!?! Yes it is. SMASH. Thomas cracks Boone in the back of the head with a chair. Boone hits the mat. Thomas helps Allen up and then smashes Boone again in the head as he drops to the mat. Allen hits the Flying Fist Drop and that's enough to retain.

Harry Allen wins by Flying Fist Drop in 14:52, 43/D




Boone is down as Thomas and Allen continue the beat down. Gumble joins the fray and they begin the routine over again. It’s de ja vu, Gumble and Thomas hold Boone in place and Allen smashes the chair over Boone head busting him open, Allen grabs a mic and his belt.

Allen
Now you know Boone, I have legions of men wanting to follow me because you and these stupid fans just… don’t get… it. Ford, Bobby and I have worked our god damn asses off to get to where we are in our careers and what have we gotten, a few belts but never the big one. You see Boone you may have left TCW but when you did, you were the big boy in PSW, you were the guy, well now, it’s our turn. We have been underappreciated, underutilised and thrown to the wayside for other less talented goofs to rise ahead of us, but that ends tonight. We are The Forgotten…. And the irony is, you won’t be forgetting us anymore.

Allen, Thomas and Gumble leave as a cascade of boos rain down on top of them.

Allen
Oh, and one more thing Boone, I kinda promised you lifeless corpse to this guy


Sayeed Ali makes his way to the ring as Allen, Gumble and Thomas leave the ring area. Ali hits the ring, Boone’s forehead spewing out blood like a tap as the canvas below him begins to become crimson. Ali pushes Boone head first with his foot, a complete lack of respect. BANG! The chair to the back of the head. BANG! Chair to the back. BANG! Chair to the back again. Boone is lifeless, even more so then he was before. Ali lays the chair down, and picks the lifeless body of Boone to his feet but he can’t stand by himself. A swift shift by Ali and CRACK!!!!!! G.B.H Driver on Boone right onto the chair. Ali smirks and leaves making sure this time that Boone is done for. Ali leaves the ring as EMT’s rush to the aid of Boone.
41/D



Show Rating: 45/D

Quick update on why i’ve been inactive over the last week, so basically I had two people close to me admitted to hospital so the only time ive spent outside of a hospital ward is when im eating and sleeping, but one of them was discharged yesterday, so i have a bit of time here to do some diary stuff. In truth, it's been a tough week but some TEW should help me out.

So, why Bobby Thomas? Simple, it fits. He was always the other Specialist. Perfect for Allen's angle. Plus Bobby is an excellent worker. I really thought this was a good show and really started everything i hope to achieve with UCW.

A few new faces appeared aswell, hopefully, they'll make themselves useful.

Ill put up the predictions later, as I haven't quite ironed out the detaila yet but ill put them up soon. Theres not much else to say here as Im kind of forcing this out right now so, I guess ill leave this for now, and ill update you guys later.
