WRESTLING: The Federation
***First post on these boards in awhile, just got settled into my new apartment, hopefully, this generates some interest.***
Conversation in progress...
J.K Stallings Jr:Look guys, I know this seems a little far fetched, but it'll catch on! People DO care about the wrestling these days. And who better to help portray it to the world then two grizzled veteran teammates such as yourselves?
Joel Bryant: And what makes you so sure we aren't going to be re-signing with TCW?
J.K Stallings Jr:Well, I'm offering the two the chance of a lifetime. A fresh start. I've already spoken with Tommy, he thinks its a great idea!
Robert Oxford:You went behind our backs and talked to our boss, who we are currently negotiating with for new contracts, to plead the case that you want us, without our consent?
J.K Stallings Jr:I'm sure when you both look into your bank accounts tonight, you will see that I am willing to make this quite worth your while. And all that is, is a gift. If you decide to turn me down, whats in there is yours... but I know the two of you are approaching the ends of your careers, and this is a pretty sweet deal. We both know that. Just sign on the dotted line already...
He slightly pushes two pieces of paper towards them, the most noticeable thing on these papers, is the letters WTF, larger than the rest.
Oooh, I remember this from last year. Although last year it was Canadian, and had less Stallings Jr.
Hopefully the new version is still as good though.
Stallings can be seen in an office, sitting behind a desk. He has alot of paperwork with him, among the noticeable things, lie the contracts of Joel Bryant and Robert Oxford that say WTF at the top... both signed.
J.K seems to be in another world, and doesn't notice the figure standing in his doorway.
Man: Mr. Stallings... can I call you Jake? We spoke on the phone earlier, that private jet you sent me was very nice...
Stallings looks up to see a friendly face in front of him.
J.K Stallings Jr: Excellent, I see you got my message and jet then, how was the hospitality on the flight?
Steve Flash: It was good. A little over the top Jake, but hey, who's complaining?
J.K Stallings Jr: Please, Mr. Stallings is fine.
Steve Flash: So is Jake.
Stallings lets out a small sigh and shakes his head a bit.
J.K Stallings Jr: I like the haircut Steve, its about time. Very suiting.
Steve Flash: Funny Jake, I was just going to suggest you finally get one. Like mano eh mano, cmon, how do you expect to get any chicks lookin like that?
Stallings temperature rising by the color change seen in his face.
J.K Stallings Jr: Look Steve, I'm sure you probably have an idea why I called you here.
Steve Flash: Not a clue actually.
J.K Stallings Jr: The future Steve.
Steve Flash: Wait... you can see into the future? Is something bad going to happen and you're hear to warn me? Talk to me Jake..
J.K Stallings Jr: .... [pause] .... No Steve, its regarding your career.
Steve Flash: What about my career, I've got a great one.
J.K Stallings Jr: Lets be honest Steve... aren't you tired of being overlooked? Tired of the glitz and glamour, the backstage politics, and the steroid pumped juice monkeys?
Steve Flash: [in a more serious tone] Wrestling has its vices, but unfortunately, those vices are a part, and always HAVE been a part of this industry.
J.K Stallings Jr: But they don't have to be Steve. I'm here to give you an oppurtunity to make this a legit sport again, with people with the same talent, goals, dreams and ambitions as yourself. Steve, how would you like to WRESTLE again?
J.K stands up and goes over to a wall unit, opens it up and grabs a red velvet bag out of it. He grabs something from inside, and lays it in front of Flash...
Steve's eyes are fixated on the Championship belt...
J.K Stallings Jr: This is just one of four Championships Steve. An oppurtunity of a lifetime Steve... a chance to take WRESTLING, back to the top. This could be yours. Make people care again Steve, I know thats your true passion.
Stallings then put ones finger on a piece of paper and slides it towards Flash as he pulls a pen out of his shirt pocket with his other hand, as Flashes eyes are still fixated on the Pure WRESTLING Championship
Its late at night, or very early in the morning, all we know is it is dark looking out the windows of J.K Stallings Jr.'s office window. He seems to have been working around the clock.
He lifts his head and gives a sigh, as he crosses another name off the list and hangs up the phone.
J.K Stallings Jr: This sure isn't as easy as it was last time...
He picks up the phone once again and looks at the list in front of him. A deep voice picks up on the other side of the phone.
Deep Voiced Man: G'day mate...
J.K Stallings Jr: Evening sir. My name is J.K Stallings Jr. I'm sure you have heard of me before...
Deep Voiced Man: Nah mate, I'm sorry I ain't.
J.K Stallings Jr: Well, you've sure heard of TCW.
Deep Voiced Man: Well of course mate, hoo asn't eard of TCdub son?
J.K Stallings Jr: Well, good sir, I sold HGC to Tommy Cornell... which is now what you know as TCW, and I'm interested in paying you alot of money to be the face of my company. To be the savior of professional wrestling.
Deep Voiced Man: Hahaha, yeah right. I ain't never even heard of joo before. Besides, I'se jus some small independent wrestler across the sea mate, ow do you expect people to know who I am, or even care?
J.K Stallings Jr: Because you've got it. And you know you've got it. I had one of my assistants wire you something in the mail. Did you get the package yet? One day, it could be yours, I expect you'll bring it back with you on my private jet when you come to discuss matters further...
Stallings Jr hangs up the phone, with a sinister grin on his face, much like we've seen before. We now see from the eyes of the man on the other end of the phone as he unwraps the package, a small velvet bag much like Steve Flash was presented.
The camera pans around to see who J.K Stallings Jr. wants to see be the face of WTF, the savior of professional wrestling...
'Your Effin Role Model' Swoop McCarthy
TCW Presents Total Championship Wrestling
It was Tuesday afternoon, around 4 PM when J.K Stallings Jr. showed up at the Utah Park Reseveration, and he had a mission to take care of. As he bolted straight towards Tommy Cornells office, he was passed by a member of the current TCW roster...
Harry Allen: Well if it isn't the infamous J.K Stallings Jr.
J.K Stallings Jr: And if it isn't the opener to the stars, Harry Allen!
Allen doesn't seem to impressed with this.
J.K Stallings Jr: Look kid, don't waste my time, I'm here on important business.
Harry Allen: Kid? Who you calling kid? Listen punk, you haven't even seen the tip of the iceberg with what Harry Allen has to offer the wrestling wor...
Stallings cuts him off.
J.K Stallings Jr: Like I said, don't waste my time.
Stallings walks around a dumbfounded, ticked off Harry Allen on the way to the office of TCW owner Tommy Cornell.
TCW Presents Total Championship Wrestling
J.K Stallings Jr. is in the office of Tommy Cornell, both are sitting in lounging chairs around a table drinking coffee.
J.K Stallings Jr: Come on Tommy, we go way back, you owe me this!
Tommy Cornell: I don't owe you anything. You couldn't handle HGC. Don't turn this around and make it seem like you did me a favour. I bailed YOU out.
J.K Stallings Jr: It's all semantics Tommy. You know, just as I do, that competition is the best thing for this business. You help me out, I help you out, we both prosper.
Tommy Cornell: And whats your REAL reasoning Stallings? I know you better than that...
J.K Stallings Jr: What?! I'm offended Tommy, you'd think friends like us, we go way back, I can't accept accusations like that!
Tommy Cornell: I've never liked you.
Stallings sits there with his mouth open.
Tommy Cornell: So, you want to promote yourself. And your new federation on my established program, with my established stars? I already granted you a favour I never should have and let Robert and Joel out of their contracts.
J.K Stallings Jr: Tommy, come on now, you're being irrational. They wanted out as much as you wanted to let them go. Give me 20 minutes of air time, thats all I need... and I guarantee you, you won't regret it.
Tommy sits there in his chair, grumbling to himself as Stallings Jr. tries to persuade him.
Tommy Cornell: Tell me the truth. Something I will believe. I know you don't care about the wrestling, all you care about is the money. You're going to end up in the same situation as before. The only reason you're doing this is because that chip you put in rescue/emergency vehicles to turn down stereo systems of vehicles in front of them so they can hear the sirens made you even richer than before.
Stallings sits there, pondering for a minute, before letting out a sigh.
J.K Stallings Jr: You're right Tommy, but what difference does it make to you? I want to create something epic. Legendary. I want people to remember the name J.K Stallings Jr, and if I have to step on, and screw some people in the process, thats what I will do.
Tommy Cornell: You mean, guys who work their ass off, day in, day out, like Oxford and Bryant?
J.K Stallings Jr: It's all business Tommy, they know that, and you know that. So I had to tell a few fibs to a few people to get them onboard. They will thank me in the long run.
Tommy Cornell: You know what... fine, you've got yourself a deal. 20 minutes. But not because I like you, or think this will benefit me in anyway. But because I want to see it all fall to shambles right in front of you.
J.K Stallings Jr: Tommy, you've never been more wrong in your life.
Stallings stands up and extends his hand to Cornell who just looks at him, and ignores him. Stallings turns and leaves his office, once again with a sinister grin upon his face.
'The Tag Team Master' Robert Oxford
Robert Oxford, a veteran in the sport, is someone who personifies the art of wrestling.
'Straight Shooter' Joel Bryant
Joel Bryant is highly respected by his peers and colleagues. He can make anyone look good, and has a great mind for the business.
'Remarkable' Steve Flash
Held the Empire Championship in 2007 with NYCW. Like Oxford and Bryant, wrestling is in his blood and comes naturally to him. Can wrestle with the best in the world, and is looking to finally make himself a household superstar calibre name.
'Your Effin' Rolemodel' Swoop McCarthy
Swoop McCarthy could be the biggest thing since Christian Faith in SWF, if used properly. All the skillsets are there, now he just needs the guidance and will to apply them in the right direction.
'Triple Threat' Davis Wayne Newton
Young star, much like Swoop. Has all the tools to become a major player in the sport. Canadian born and trained, would be a good addition to the roster, and could appeal to his native land, as thats where the shows will be based out of.
'The Unholy Icon' Alexander Fayt
(Many of you who read this diary before may remember this character.)
Alexander Fayt was sent to Japan, and trained by Bryan Holmes. His wealthy uncle, who owns several Tim Hortons branches throughout Canada had him sent down there in highschool and had him train with Holmes.
Technically gifted, he excels on the microphone as well.
If anyone wants to check out the 2007 WTF version, there are 11 pages of diary in the 2007 diary forum, and I just read it over again and am quite happy with it.
Hopefully I can continue the tradition in this one, if you liked that diary, expect alot more of the same here.
TCW Presents Championship Wrestling
This was an emotional match.
People came to see this match.
It wasn't even slotted in the Main Event.
But these two men, were the reason the Utah Park Reservation was packed full tonight.
Two men, who gave everything they had to the sport.
And were good at doing it.
The TCW faithful, they recognized this.
Tommy Cornell realized this.
Their last match in TCW, would be against eachother.
And it was amazing.
J.K Stallings Jr. came down to the ring, interupting the match. He got into the ring and addressed the crowd, who were booing him immensely.
J.K Stallings Jr: Listen, listen people... theres no need to boo me here. You see, I can give you this EVERY month now. Not only can I give you that, I can give you the BEST, in professional wrestling.
Oxford and Bryant seem annoyed and ask Stallings to stop, but he continues.
J.K Stallings Jr: You see... these two buffoons, are going to be cannon fodder for the younger, edgier, hipper stars of today. Real wrestlers. Real competitors. Real ATHLETES.
Robert Oxford and Joel Bryant are now livid. They start confronting Stallings in a more physical manner now, the announcers specifying that Stallings wasn't scheduled for another ten minutes, but they would keep the cameras rolling.
J.K Stallings Jr: Now boys, I would settle down, unless you want me to make the rest of the two years that I have you both signed for, a living HELL.
Crowd is hot for Oxford and Bryant right now, getting right behind the riled up veterans. Bryant grabs Stallings by the shirt, and looks around to the crowd, eating it up.
The lights went out.
The lights come on and J.K Stallings Jr. is standing in the corner, alone. On the other side of the ring, Joel Bryant and Robert Oxford were laid out bloodied in the ring, not moving.
At the top of the ramp stood 'Epic' Harry Allen, 'The Grunge' Chris Flynn, Jacob Jett and Robbie Rambo (formerly Robbie Retro), walking backwards away from the ring.
Backstage we see Tommy Cornell fuming mad after seeing the events that had happened. He is running around looking for Stallings. He finds him, and Stallings is surrounded by hired personal security. Cornell tries to get at him, but fails.
Tommy Cornell: What the HELL was that Stallings?
J.K Stallings Jr: An oppurtunity.
The security hold back as Stallings evacuates.
'The Unholy Icon' Alexander Fayt
Captain Cal Sanders
'The Second Genetartion Superstar' Cameron Vessey
'The Grunge' Chris Flynn
Davis Wayne Newton
Dean 'The Machine' Daniels
'Epic' Harry Allen
J.K Stallings Jr.
WRESTLING: The Federation 1 - For Love Of The Game
J.K Stallings Jr. had done it. He had gotten some direly needed exposure, and that was all he needed. He ran the commercials. He got the street teams out there, paid alot of money to make sure people knew what WRESTLING: The Federation was, and what it offered.
And sadly, that didn't do a whole lot to garner interest. Nobody cared about wrestling in general at all anymore. But alas, he pressed on. Wrestling would once again be atop the giants in the sports industry. And he would be leading the pack...
Card for For Love Of The Game...
Chris Flynn has made a statement, and an open challenge that he is the best, pound for pound wrestler, in the world.. He will face any competitor, signed with WTF or not. Will anyone take him up on this challenge?
And will we find out what his, and his accomplices motives were only 3 short weeks ago on TCW Presents Championship Wrestling?
The American Patriot, Captain Cal Sanders will hear it from the crowd for sure as he takes on youngster Erik Young on Canadian soil.
The veteran Kingman will have his hands full in this match with the two youngsters in Jameson and Vessey. Both should be hungry, Jameson looking to make a name for himself, and Vessey trying to hold up the tradition his name brings.
'Epic' Harry Allen will face off against 'Dean' The Machine' Daniels. Harry Allen was one of the members of the group that attacked Robert Oxford and Joel Bryant, right after Stallings insulted their styles and methods of wrestling, while promoting the hipper, edgier, more daring, high flying, high impact, crisp technical younger stars.
Dean Daniels would happen to fall into the same category as Oxford and Bryant, leaving both man something to prove here.
Steve Flash will be in action!
Robert Oxford and Joel Bryant haven't been seen since they were brutally attacked and left bloodied and unconcious. One has to think only revenge will be on their minds.
But Jett and Rambo aren't backing down, and are just as ready to bring the fight!
All this and more, card subject to change, at WTF - For Love Of The Game
WTF - For Love Of The Game
'The Grunge' Chris Flynn makes his way out to the ring, the small 200 + fans in attendance not showing him much of a reaction, but any reaction he does get, not being good.
Chris Flynn: Ever since I got in this business, people have told me to hold my tongue, respect the veterans, and pay my dues. Well here I am, I'm ready to pay my dues, but I won't hold me tongue or respect the old brittle veterans here.
Crowd boos Flynn, showing they still care about the guys that helped shape this business.
Chris Flynn: So, I'm here, and ready to take care of business. Throw someone my way, I dare you...
'Hero' by Nas hits the PA system, as the fans turn in attention towards the current. A burly african american man with lots of facial hair.
Adrian Garcia and Mitch Naess put him over on commentary for the DVD, but the fans don't really seem to know who it is.
We know, however that this was the man Stallings had tried to court into coming to WTF, Swoop McCarthy, calling him the 'saviour' of professional wrestling.
He comes down, wearing jeans and a tight black long sleeve shirt, carrying the purple velvet bag that Stallings sent to him.
Swoopy McCarthy charges the ring and attacks Flynn before words can be exchanged, he slides in an begins brawling with The Grunge, gaining the upper hand.
He irish whips Flynn in the ropes, and nails him with the velvet bag as he comes back. McCarthy picks him up and nails him with a 'Swoop, There It Is'
sick looking burning hammer.
Dewey Libertine, late on the scene rushes in and rings the bell and makes the three count all at the same time.
Victor: Swoop McCarthy in 2:40 via pinfall with a Swoop There It Is.
Swoop heads back up the ramp, and pulls the World WRESTLING Championship out of the bag... laughing at a groggy Flynn.
Captain Cal Sanders vs. Erik Strong
Captain Cal Sanders, CCS, put on a good match with strong here, and the fans really did not agree with his choice of costume. Let him hear about it all match, but he still tried to play to them, which just made them jeer even louder.
Sanders got the win with a tornado DDT, both men standing on the top rope, a move he calls 'Ground Zero'.
Victor: Captain Cal Sanders via pinfall with a Ground Zero
After the match, CCS salutes Strong and the crowd before leaving to the back.
Kirk Jameson vs. Barry Kingman vs. Cameron Vessey
This was a hard fought, not too bad of a match. Each man gave it there all, displaying some true wrestling and the fans, regardless of the men not being well known, got behind this match.
Cameron Vessey got the win when he locked a Vessey Clamp on Kirk Jameson, who tapped only fractions of a second before Kingman could save him.
Victor: Cameron Vessey via Vessey Clamp
'Miseria Cantare' by AFI plays, as the lights begin to flicker silver with the beating of the drums.
Young Alberta native 'The Unholy Icon' Alexander Fayt makes his way to the ring, amidst not a bad pop from his hometown crowd.
He gets into the ring, and grabs a microphone.
'The Unholy Icon' Alexander Fayt:Now all everyone has been able to talk about recently has been J.K Stallings Jr. and his appearance on TCW television almost a month ago. Him, and his inbred thugs Jett, Rambo, Allen and Flynn.
Crowd seems indifferent still.
Alexander Fayt: Well, Stallings did have one thing right, and that the younger, hipper, edgier stars are the future. They are the way. But we can't forget about our roots. The people who trained us, and shaped this business and industry.
Crowd pops a little bit, showing some respect.
Alexander Fayt: So regardless of what goes on in the near future, I promise to uphold my integrity and pride, and do things the honorable way...
Generic music interupts Fayt now, as Davis Wayne Newton stands at the top of the ramp, fans in attendance knowing him from 4C fame.
Davis Wayne Newton: Fayt, listen to yourself. It's pathetic. Why do you think Stallings brought us in here? Why do you think these people in attendance are here? To see guys like us. Nobody wants to see guys that have to wear diapers wrestling...
Fayt has a small grin on his face.
Alexander Fayt: Is that so? Well then, if these fans came here to see young stars, I see two of them right here... so why don't we give them a show?
Davis Wayne Newton seems to be awestruck and backpeddaling now.
Davis Wayne Newton: Well, you see Alex, I would... but, when I signed my contract there was a mixup, and well, my contract isn't dated until NEXT month. So... as much as I'd love to give these people a show, legally I can't...
He tosses the mic down with a sly grin on his face and goes back through the curtain, as Fayt shakes his head in disgust and heads back after him.
'Epic' Harry Allen vs. Dean 'The Machine' Daniels
Match was pretty good with Harry Allen actually really impressing. Finish came when he poked Daniels in the eye and stole the match with a quick roll up.
Victor: Harry Allen via rollup.
Steve Flash vs. Joey Poison
This was a good match, nothing special though. Flash got the win with a Flashback after about 15 minutes, proving that he can still go and that he wants to make a major impact.
Victor: Steve Flash via Flashback
Backstage Swoop McCarthy is seen holding that purple velvet bag, as Adrian Garcia approaches him.
Adrian Garcia: Swoop, does this mean that you have signed a contract with WRESTLING: The Federation?
Swoop McCarthy: Well nuw mate, if ya recall Grunge boys initial challenge, he said contracted, or not... sa I showed up.
Swoop pulls the title out of the bag.
Swoop McCarthy: And this? This right ere mate, iz stayin wit me.
Swoop tosses the title over his shoulder and walks away as Garcia stands there dumbfounded.
Joel Bryant and Robert Oxford vs. Jacob Jett and Robbie Rambo (formerly Robbie Retro)
Match started out with lots of bantering, while Flynn and Allen were at ringside until Dewey Libertine tossed them to the back.
Was a good back and forth match, with Jett using his speed, Rambo using his size, and Oxford and Bryant using excellent teammwork, positioning, and mat tactics.
Finish came when Robbie Rambo hit a vicious powerbomb on Robert Oxford, followed by a 450 splash from Jacob Jett.
This was AFTER, however, Dewey Libertine took a bump off of a missed clothesline by Oxford.
This caused Stallings Jr. to come out with a chair and slide it in to Rambo, who nailed both Oxford and Bryant with it, leaving them down and out, allowing the finish to happen the way it did.
Victors: Robbie Rambo and Jacob Jett via unseen chairshots.
Chris Flynn and Harry Allen made there ways back down to the ring, and the beatdown ensued, but only to be stopped as Alexander Fayt, and Swoop McCarthy rush the ring, followed by Steve Flash.
They slide into the ring and the group scatter before too much damage can be done. Stallings has a microphone.
J.K Stallings Jr: Witness everyone, the birth of something great. WRESTLING: The Federation. And these four men, men who have been exiled because of their age or styles, they, they will not be the stars of tomorrow, for they will be the stars of today.
Stallings throws the mic down as they head to the back.
OOC: I don't have any of the ratings as I'm not at home, and normally I do have a quick pick part at the bottom, I just wanted to get the first show monkey off my back and get things rolling, much like with my previous diary you will see an evolution I'm sure.
