Default D.o.t.t - Icw


My first attempt at a diary so please be patient with me as I mess around with formatting etc.

I am hoping to write this diary to not only boost my enjoyment of the game, but also to encourage me to play longer. I choose International Championship Wrestling on DOTT as I wanted a challenge and there are few other DOTT diaries.

I will also be focusing on the financial side of the game as I feel this is lacking from other diaries.

I am playing with the standard DOTT database , but there are no promotional pacts and I have made a few small changes such as giving Hulk Hogan a steroid problem etc

Yeah I am an idiot! I was thinking of the promotion that was in the Northeast in the 1990's it was ICW and then became the IWCCW. That being said I will still be reading because the roster sound interesting.

BTW, anyone good at formatting posts?

How do i align the images so they are all on the same line and not so spaced about? Currently i am using the aign left/centre/right fields that you use for text
Please let me know.

Seems to be fixed, thanks Old School

ICW Superstars
Quick Picks
I will do quick picks before each TV and end of month show. The winner at the end of each period will get to help decide who they wish to push in ICW or suggest a hiring.

Ratamyas vs George Weingeroff (sorry no pics of them )

Ratamyas is on a rampage at the moment can he be stopped by one half of the former tag team champions George Weingeroff?

Crusher Bloomfield vs Jim Gibson


Crusher is big and mean but Jim Gibson is cunning and a great wrestler. Can Gibson out smart Crusher or will Crusher crush him into the ground.

Brad Battan vs Thunderbolt Patterson


Thunderbolt is a fan favourite but has not been winning much later. Brad Battan is trying to make a name for himself in ICW and what better way then to beat a local legend. Brad might not be a match by himself but with his brother Bart in the picture who knows.

ICW Heavyweight Title match



Randy Savage© vs Ronnie Garvin


What a main event. 2 old enemies squaring off, for another time. Can Garvin finally get the better of Savage or will Savage once again win out and retaing his Heavyweight title.

Hope you do well, as I'm a fan of "Oldschool" wrestling obviously... And I think I may be the only other writer currently using a DOTT mod... You got your work cut out for you with ICW

Thanks for the help.

Yeah i know it will be tought, but i like a challenge and was a kid i was huge Randy Savage fan. Mainly when he was a good guy in WWF but also as a bad guy. I remember his feud with Ultimate Warrior when he interefered in his match vs Sgt.Slaughter at Royal Rumble one year and caused Slaughter to win the title.

I was a big Savage fan when he first came on the WWF scene... Hiding behind Elizabeth... The robes, the pomp & Circumstance, the quickness he had before he began bulking up... Loved his run as IC champ...

Okay I picked the guys who I know to win. Well except the first match as I have never heard of either one of them. And even though I know who Ronnie Garvin is there is no way he is going to beat the Marcho Man!

Ratamyas vs George Weingeroff
Crusher Bloomfield vs Jim Gibson
Brad Battan vs Thunderbolt Patterson
Randy Savage© vs Ronnie Garvin

Got to support my fellow DOTT'er

Weingeroff beats Ratamyas I've heard of Weingeroff, so thats why
Crusher Bloomfield beats Jim Gibson I'm a big fan of the future OMG!
Thunderbolt Patterson beats Brad Battan... I'd keep the Battans around, not a bad tag team to open some shows with.. Thunderbolt is one of your few top draws
Randy Savage beats Ronnie Garvin; Somethings gonna have to happen to hype your big drawing match here... I say Garvin by DQ

When Savage first came and was REALLY good he still alot of "Memphis" in him,he played it like the classic "Cowardly southern heel" and it worked,both because it was something not really seen on the big stage amd because Save was just so talented;I feel this period is his best,before he bulked up just way too much.


Great idea for a diary, you picked a very different promotion to go with,but one that I feel can go places if you can shake the "outlaw" status.As long you are at war with CWA,there will be problems....still remember the number 1 rule of ICW while you are at war with Memphis: Make fun of the CWA at every opportunity on TV.

Anyway on to my picks:

Ratyamas vs. George Weingeroff
Weingeroff has some talent and unlike much of your talented workers, is still young enough to go for a while,so he needs a push....still Ratyamas could work if used right but right now he's in limbo,maybe a stable with Vines/Sword/Slapowitz,who IIRC are doing a "Satanic" type gimmick?Would segue beautifully into a Kevin Sullivan "Army of Darkness" appearance,if you could straighten your relationships and land him for a bit.

Crusher Bloomfield vs. Jim Gibson
Crusher has a great look,good potential,and is young enough to really go...Gibson,not so much....747 for the win!

Brad Battan vs. Thunderbolt Patterson
Old "T-Bolt" can still get it done so I pick him;IRL the Battan brothers would develop into a decent(but not spectacular) tag team in a few years but right now they need to get experience and develop

Randy Savage vs. Ronnie Garvin
Garvin is definitely good.....but Savage is great,the boss's son,AND you have to keep his momentum going for an owner goal,that makes me say it's Savage with the cheap win here to set up a program

Yeah i loved his run as IC champ as well. I was also a big fan of the Genius (Lanny Poffo), another reason i chose ICW.
