Head Booker for WWE
Who would you like to see as a head booker for WWE
because I was going to start another game on TEW 2008 with the WWE but I want to do someone who either a isnt on the game or isn't in the E
(No I am still keeping my WCW diary)
big because he would know how to use talent
cough cough Mysterio, Jericho and others who know how to wrestle
and yes I know Jericho is used as a champion but it took some time for him to get up to that status
really Chris Nolan, I mean it would be fun because he his a darker type of writer, but I don't still some time left to answer
Vince walks into the board room and sits down at the head of the table, everyone is calm and silent as they know today is cut day, it is the last meeting of the year and it is the day people are released and ideas are given about next year and who could possibly be a break out star, many of the big names are in the room such as Shane, Stephanie, Paul L., John Laurinaitis, Christopher DeJoseph, Brian Gewirtz, Michael Hayes, Ed Koskey, Pat Patterson, Michael Pavone, Dusty Rhodes, and even Freddie Prinze Jr. along with many others who were standing in the back
Guys,…… I’m not going to lie, this was the worst year the WWE has had since WCW wiped the floor with us. Stock fell, ratings were down, and the storylines, I mean I just don’t know what to say.
The room sits in silence as Vince keeps talking
Okay, so let’s look at storylines that happened this year, Kane vs Mysterio, well if either one of them had Main Event cred still you guys found a way to kill it with this storyline!
Vince looks up from his paper but still no one talks
You know after I look at all of this the only storyline besides Flair’s retirement that worked was Shawn and Chris Jericho! What the hell happened to us, we went from the best wrestling company in the world to struggling to keep our rating for Raw over 3.0, and instead of sitting here and shouting out ideas and saying thing, you all sit here like you guys got your da*n brains sucked out of your ******* heads, do you not realize that this our livelihood, our money maker, the thing that keeps food on your tables?
Vince stands up from his chair and walks around and stands behind Michael Hayes
I mean Hayes, your biggest headline this year, was getting suspended for remarks you made, Christopher yours in getting into a yellow t-back and dancing, none of you have done anything this year, no storylines that were worth investing in,……. nothing! Hell we even screwed up my storyline!
As Vince looks around trying to see if anyone had anything to say.
And yet you all sit here with no words coming out of those mouths,……. so you have lead me to make a decision that will either take this company back to its glory or ultimately take us down to the level of TNA and ROH
Finally someone speak, none other than Mr. Prinze Jr.
And what is that Vince?
Vince walks back to his chair and slams his fist into the desk
Effective today the WWE is in the market for a new Head Booker, a man with vision, with passion, and with the balls to tell me NO!
Shane looks up looks around and speaks
So who is he?
Well there is the great thing…… I want you guys to name me some names right now and I will interview them, BUT! No one who works for us right now
Patterson speaks up
Now Vince I don’t think that will be nessacary just give us one more year, we can turn things around!
Patterson, as much as I would love to agree….I…I...I just can’t we have been in a tailspin for two years now
Can we name anyone?
People start naming off names
The names keep pouring out until everyone stops saying names as Paul stood up and said a name
It’s a joke he, we’ll never get him but, he did the new batman series.
Okay, well I guess those were good names
Vince gives a disgruntled face
I will have them all come in an interview and we will find out who will take over for the position…… I hope!?!?!?!?
Vince stands up and walks out of the room as the door shut Paul his overheard saying
Well, it looks like a new ERA in the WWE!
I have called the list of people you wanted.
Um, well most of them laughed!
What the hell am I paying you for if you can’t even get people I need to talk to in my office?
They are all going to interview
Wait, than why did they all laugh
Well, they didn’t believe that you would call
Alright, what is the schedule?
Russo is 10 am to 12 pm
Austin 1 to 1:30 pm
Bischoff 2 till 3pm
Heyman 5 to 6 pm
Sapolsky 7:30 till 8:45 pm
Cornette 9:00 till 9:45 pm
Prazak 10 till 10:30 pm
Then on Wednesday
Dwayne 11 am till 1
Hogan 3 to 4
Hart 6 till 7pm
And Mr. Nolan 9 till 11pm
Alright, well let’s hope for the best then
Vince Russo walks into the WWE conference room where he is met with the stern face of Vince McMahon
Vinny baby, oh how I’ve missed ya
Sit Russo, You know why your hear right?
Of course, you want to give me my job back…
Not quite…. See Russo, yes, I am looking for a new head booker, but it doesn’t mean you are my man
Then why am I here
An interview, see you might not be my man, and god knows I don’t want it to be, but there is a chance you could have some ideas so for the next…. Jesus Christ we still have an hour and fifty minutes…. Mental note fire Julie…. But so until noon you can pitch me ideas
Russo looks at his watch and then pulls out a piece of paper
Okay so Vince we both know that wrestling isn’t what it use to be, I mean the Austin’s and the Rock's and others are all gone, they aren’t wrestling anymore, but we have a bunch of new guys who could replace them, I mean you guys could have built the Batista and Cena storyline more, even though personally I think you should have waited on it
But that can all be fixed, you have two Hardy and Cena as your world champion, but then you start to destroy people like MVP and Kennedy it starts to hurt you, my idea is to sign three big names off the block and put them on the three brands, one each……
As time continues to click McMahon looks at his watch a notices there is only a minute left
Whoa man time flew by, listen Russo I really didn’t want this interview, but you gave some great ideas, and I hate to say this, but if I gave you the position I would feel comfortable about it
So I got the job then buddy!?!
No, well at least not yet, there are still more people to talk to, but your first event if you get hired will be the Royal Rumble
The Rumble, but that gives no time to make storylines building up to the Rumble
Well I don’t know if you’ve been watching but we don’t have any real storylines as of right now, now good day Vince
Yeah you to
Vince sat in his office and wrote down some of his own ideas; he started to get bored though and still had about 10 minutes before Austin would be there, so Vince got the great idea to pinch one off real quick
He went onto his computer and went to a porn site and started to have fun, but right as he hits his favorite time Austin walks in and Vince stumbles around to hide what he was doing
Um, I’m just going to go on with my day like I never saw what I just saw
As Vince fixes his desk
Ah, err, saw what?
Yeah, so moving on, how you doing Vince
Austin extends his hand but quickly pulls it back before Vince can extend his
So, Steve how have you been?
Fine, just shooting movies and relaxing, went hunting last week, caught a deer, man Vince I’ll tell you… I was about 3 clicks away, loaded that sucker up aimed right to the forehead, and boom, shoot that sucker clean through the head, he never saw it coming
Well that’s exciting, but onto business, see Austin there is no doubt that you were a part of one of the biggest ERA’s of wrestling, the attitude ERA, you Dwayne, Foley, Taker, and Paul did things that at that time just weren’t proper, and man did it sell, but now we have entered into a new age
Yeah, the boring pieces of crap, make you want to sit down and eat with the family instead, type crap…. See Vince you keep shoving these big men who can’t wrestle or cut a promo worth a lick of spit down the fans throats and they are turning off the TV or at least watching other shows. So now your creative team aint worth shirt either and you don’t know what to do, so you brought me in, Stone Cold Steve Austin to see if I had any ideas
Well close, I want you to interview for the Head Booking job here at the WWE
See that would be great but then I would have to run everything by you
Not anymore, I mean I would still like things to be ran by me, and I’ll still give my opinion on things, but also this is all up to the new head booker
So no answering to you?
So if I wanted to put the title on Hornswoggle you would let me?
Well I guess, as long as the ratings go up or well at this point don’t drop anymore!
Well then, this should be a fun time
My ideas are
Austin proceeds to talk about what he plans to do, first he would hire a writer and some other people to help him out as he doesn’t know how to do the business aspect of wrestling but he would do an on air personality or talent, not sure what yet, as time ticks away Vince is intrigued by what Austin says
So what do you think?
Well, right now I must say it’s better than Russo
Russo! You had that no neck son of a b*tch in here?
Well yeah, not my idea, it was the creative staffs decision, same with you
Vince if Russo ever got hired here again I would never come back
Okay, I’ll make note of that, but any who it looks like it’s about time for you to go…. Oh and like I told Russo, your first event will be the Royal Rumble
Rumble….. That sounds okay to me……. Oh and Vince
As Austin gets up and opens the door to leave
This little thing right here on the door is called a lock, and its purpose in life is to lock people out when you are having
Important meetings, if you catch my drift
Honey I’m home
I figure dressed in jeans and a biker jacket walks in
Some parts of me still think this was a horrible idea
Vince why is this a horrible idea, I mean come on the two men who brought the Monday Night Wars to the world in the same building, again!
See think of this, you Vince McMahon take control over Raw, I take over Smackdown, hell you could even bring back Heyman and give him ECW and we have a civil war, bringing back the Monday Night War just in a different format
So a rebirth of the Monday Night Wars in just a different format?
Interesting but how would you do this, by bringing back WCW taking over Smackdown and the WWE and Vince McMahon can’t do anything about it?
Well, uhm, yeah!
I don’t know, I mean we tried it with the invasion
Yeah but Vince they didn’t get a whole show, they only got some air time
What else you got
Eric starts to pitch different ideas but as his hour ticks down Vince starts to get him out of the office
Eric I must admit you still have a mind for the business, I’ll be in touch!
Eric walks out and Vince writes down some notes on his pad of paper
O and Vince
What a fruit
The door opens and Heyman sits down quickly
Well Vince I must say, I never thought I would be back in this office again
Neither did I Paul, but you are and you are still one of the best at coming up with storylines, and well it seems like we don’t know how to do that anymore
So you are ready to hand over the sh*tty WWE creative staff over to me?
If you do well in this interview it’s a possibility
Well let’s get to it
See Vince you need to build up ECW, they don’t need more than an hour, it would be nice but they don’t, but you need to let me have ECW and make it the way it needs to be, a dirty, sexy, wrestling promotion that doesn’t know the limits, and to steal from TNA, it keeps crossing that line, besides that we need to build up new talent, Raw and Smackdown, well let’s face they are getting old, TNA and ROH are bringing in new young talent, we are trying but you stop it very quickly if things don’t pan out
As Heyman keeps talking Vince keeps writing on his pad, Heyman then gets up and starts to walk out
Wait where are you going?
Well Vince, my time is up, and I have other things to do
Alright well, just to let you know if you get the job the Rumble would be your first show
The Rumble, okay that sounds acceptable
Heyman leaves and Vince looks impressed
Vince hears a knock at his door
A nervous head pops in
“Ah, Mr. Sapolsky, please come in”
“Good evening Mr. McMahon” Gabe said nervously
“Please Gabe, its Vince, and why are you so nervous, from what I hear from Heyman and many others you are a great booker”
“Well I guess, but I mean this is the WWE, I would finically set myself for awhile here, plus I have never worked with a roster who were as well known like your talent is, I have always used independent talent”
“Like CM Punk, Colt Cabana, and Matt Sydal?”
“Well yes, but it is different here, your requirements are so high, I mean, well it’s just, I book in a very different fashion!”
“Listen Gabe I understand that, and even if you don’t get this job I still want to hear what you have, because if I remember right you did almost everything for ECW and I need people like that in the company!”
“Okay, well Vince I think Raw and Smackdown should be completely different, Raw is your bigger brand and it should be kept like that by having your big names on it, but Smackdown should be used for wrestling, I would like to bring in the likes of Brent Albright, Bryan Danielson, and many others from ROH, even taking ROH and making it a developmental area, they are better known than FCW and they focus more on the wrestling aspect, then ECW have a mix of young wrestlers and a vets but bring back some of the ECW style……..”
As Gabe keeps speaking Vince never seems like he is day dreaming, even asking questions about things, Gabe and Vince got along really well during the whole process
“Well Gabe, sad to say our time is up, but I really like what I heard, you have ideas that could take WWE were it has never touched before, I still have a couple more interviews but you will definitely be hearing back from me”
“Alright, well thank you Mr. McMahon for your time, and I’ll be waiting for your call”
“Gabe, last thing”
“Your first event if you land the job will be the Rumble, so start writing it up”
Vince gets a buzz from his intercom
“Mr. Cornette and Prazak have called and cancelled, I’m sorry”
“It’s okay Julie, Cornette is a crappy booker anyways, and Prazak I don’t know much about”
“Okay then, can I get you anything”
“Yeah I need you to go and grab the contract”
“Oh, did you find your person”
“Not yet but I’m close”
“Well, okay then”
Looking good. Awesome set up. I'll be reading intently! My vote is for The Great One of course. As if there's a choice!
