WCW rises from the ashes......
Disclaimer: This is a fictional history based on the game Total Extreme Warfare and should not be miscontrued as actual wrestling news, information, rumors, or results. Any images, logos, banners, avatars used in this forum are copyrighted by the organization they come from.
Backstory - After years of unfaithfullness Linda McMahon once again catches her husband Vince committing an affair with a very attractive young blonde WWE employee. Furious, Linda does the one thing she knows will cripple Vince's most important asset.... His ego.
Linda shows up to the RAW tapings as usual and approaches the prduction bus. She tells the crew to cut straight to a tape she has brought with her. As RAW is about to begin with Vince coming out to make an announcement to kick of the show the feed cuts instead to an amazing picture..... Linda McMahon and Ted Turner standing in a wrestling ring in an empty arena.
Ted announces that he has bought an additional 41% of TBS shares back and is now once again the sole decision maker! Linda then makes her bombshell, she has left Vince McMahon for Ted Turner his life long rival.
They tell those watching they will have a show next week at this very time on the TBS Network as the feed is abrubtly cut and RAW finally begins to a storm of controversy!
As the media circus encircles Vince McMahon reaches for the safety of his limosuine door, old friend Gerald Briscoe ushers him down the court stairs as he quickly escapes the ensuing frenzy....
Linda's attourney appears at the top of the court steps looking a liitle more eager to speak.....
"Judge Marissa Sammartino has ruled in our favour and has rewarded Linda the comlete rights to the Smackdown brand and it's roster of workers and contracts. We have also won our appeal for the copyrights and trademarks of the WCW brand".
All was clear now.... the rumours of Linda and Ted Turner having a scandalous affair were true. Vince McMahons archenemy and wife of over twenty years were now an item and they wanted me to head their new booking team.
How would Shane McMahon take this? After all he took his mothers side in this whole ordeal and now she was shoving him aside for a rookie unkown radio jockey from Orange County fresh to the business.
Nothing was clear, the only thing certain was with WCW now running on TBS head to head against WWE's RAW, monday night is once again a WARZONE....

Monday Week 1, October 2005
Nitro Report - Live on TBS
Location: MCI Center (Washington D.C USA)
The show starts with the now nostalgic WCW pyro! The entire old set is back with no attention to detail left untouched. Taz and Michael Cole do a brief history of the WCW brand mentioning all the legends who have held the Heavyweight Title (most of which were "NWA" champions" lol). They then play an awesome package of the past to present. The production quality here was quality.... As soon the vignette reached the Goldberg era the music changed and they showed the Shane O Mac in a WCW ring footage which faded to a tombstone with "WCW R.I.P" engraved on it, intentionally making no reference of the mocked "Invasion".
As soon as the pyro ends Randy Orton hits the ring claiming the #1 contendership, Guerrero's music then hits and he hits the ring. Before either can speak Taker appears to huge ovation. All 3 men argue before non other then Ted Turner interrupts. He tells all 3 that they will have to "prove themselves" to him before making any claims for the Title. He books them in a Three Way Match for later in the night.
Bobby Lashley def. Vito via pinfall 5:32
Taker bursts into Turners office telling exactly what he thinks of him and that he's only staying in WCW for his fans.
Chris Benoit and Chritian have an argument backstage over who is the better "technical wrestler". They agree to settle it in the ring later on in a "Submission Match"
Booker T def. Ken Kennedy via pinfall 10:32
MNM def. New LOD via pinfall 12:04 *New Tag Team Champions*

Juventud def. Rey Mysterio via pinfall after Psicosis interfered 14:40
A Hype video is played for the upcoming Benoit/Christian Submission Match
Christian def. Chris Benoit via Submission 21:04 *New US Champion*
Ted Turner declares the winner of the following 3 Way Mach will face Batista next week for the WCW Heavyweight Title.
Orton/Eddie Guerrero/The Undertaker drew after a 30:00 time limit
All 3 men are in the ring exhausted when Turner appears again telling them that they still haven't proved anything to him and starting to wonder if he has to look elsewhere for worthy contenders.... Batistas music hits and he says that he should be the one who decides who he will face next. Clearly intimidated Turner agrees and says next week on Nitro it will be Batista defending the Title against the man of his choosing, as the show goes of the air.......
Lashley def. Vito 5:32 ( C )

Friday Week 1, October 2005
Vince McMahon secured to of his most valuable superstars on Tuesday by signing Chris Jericho and The Rock to Written Contracts. He also secured Hogan would not jump ship on him again by singing him to an Exclusive P.P.A deal. Also signed was Rikishi, D'Lo Brown, Buff Bagwell and Jeff Hardy.
Never to be outdone or outspent for that matter, Ted Turner the very next day organised a press conference at WCW Headquarters for some announcements of his own. Firstly Linda announced that WCW had now become the "Parent Company" of Deep Georgia South Wrestling. No one was expecting what was to come. In an almost identical move to Vince McMahon when he bought WCW, Turner started his proceedings with a handful of sackings, on the cutting board were.....Scotty Too Hotty, Rob Conway, Big Vito, John Heidenreich, Simon Dean, Taz, Teddy Long and many more.
After a brief pause and change in facial expression Turner then announced he had made a "few" signings, "Some Mega-Stars, some Past-Stars and some Future Stars". Turner has recently appointed a new Head Booker and the company is apparently looking at a new breed of wrestlers as a consequence. The signings came so fast the reporters could barely keep up, In the end Turner had made alot more then a few signings. All signing to Written Contracts were
Diamond Dallas Page
Ted & Linda obviously mean business....

Monday Week 2, 2005
Nitro Report -Live on TBS
Location: Pepsi Center (Denver Colorado USA)
To the surprise of everyone this weeks Nitro started to a familiar voice, One nobody was expecting.
Randy Savage: Ooooh yeeeah, It's The Macho Man Randy Savage your neeeewa Colour Commentator here Live on NItro.
Then another familiar voice....
Mike Tenay: Welcome Ladies and Gentleman to your new WCW Nitro. I am your host Mike Tenay and I am joined by Randy Savage and the one and only Jesse Ventura! Guys how does it feel to be the new voices of WCW Nitro?
Ventura: Well let me just say Tenay, Things are gonna pick up around here from now on, I've been hearing all week we're at War and if that's the case I'm happy to be on the frontline.
(Ted Turner's music hits and he makes his way to the ring to address the crowd who is still split on wether he's babyface or heel)
Turner: You know after last weeks Main Event I had a long talk with Linda...(Lowd booos, The crowd is obviously pro-WCW). I'm just not sure you know? I mean, If what we saw in the Main Event last Monday night was the best WCW can produce then there needs to be some major changes! (The crowd grew silent...)
Savage: What's he talkin about Tenay?
Ventura: Shut up Savage and we'll find out!!!
(Batistas music hits and he joins Turner in the ring)
Turner: Before you can even start Batista! Tonight is your last chance! In fact it's every guy back theres last chance! If I'm not impressed by the action I see in this ring tonight there will be some major shake ups around here and I can guaran-damn-tee you, you won't like them! As for you picking your opponent tonight, Have you decided?
Batista: Yeah, Randy Orton.
Turner: Okay, It's official. Remember what I said I better be impressed!
(Turner drops the mic and walks out of the ring leaving Batista rabid in the ring)
Bobby Lashley v Orlando Jordan
Lashley dominated from the ring bell to when he hit the Body to Body Slam for the win,
Bobby Lashley via pinfall 4:31 (C+)
(Orton is seen backstage tending to an unconsience Earl Hebner and calling for help, Hebner was due to officiate the Orton v Batista Main Event)
Tenay: Who the hell would wanna take out Earl Hebner?
Ventura: My God Bret Hart's in the arena!
Tenay: Now that's not funny!
Savage: (laughs uncontrollably)
Juventud v Paul London for the WCW Cruiserweight Title
After a botched 450 London regained himself and hit a nice moonsault before Psicosis interfered and hit London with a chair for the cheap win.
Juventud via pinfall 15:47 (B-)
Sylvan v Chris Kanyon (In his first match on the new Nitro)
Crowd was hot for Kanyon from the whole match even starting a faint chant, Sylvan looked really bad out there. He hit his finisher? Whatever the hell it is and Kanyon kicked out after one. After a DDT, Kanyon hit the Flatliner for the win. Total burial of Sylvan
Kanyon via pinfall 7:53 (B)
(Backstage we see Eddie Guerrero laid out on the floor. The Undertaker rushes to him and turns him over to reveal a crimson red face. Guerrero has been beaten to a bloodied pulp but by who???)
(A video is shown to hype the upcoming Benoit v Christian WCW US Title rematch)
Chris Benoit v Christian for the WCW US Title
Crowd turned on this match half way through with loud WWE sux chants! Really unbelievable scenes! The first time Benoit has been booed in a long time. Match was great with both men trading suplexes at one stage with Benoit hitting 9 Germans in a row. After the crowd turned on them both men really just "went home" and the finish saw Christian simply walk out of the ring up the ramp, flip the crowd the bird and he was gone. Benoit left soon after and was visibly not happy at what just went down.
Benoit via count out 18:31 (B)
(Shane McMahon is seen backstage talking with The Undertaker)
Shane: Taker I'm only telling you this because my father told me to look out for you here alright. I could even lose my job if anyone finds out I'm talking to you. (Oblivious to the camera two feet away)
Taker: What is it boy?
Shane: Just be careful tonight okay, Let's just say there's going to be an arrival and I'm not sure if you wanna be here for it that's all.....
Taker: Boy if you think I'm scared of anybody or anything for that matter your Daddy didn't tell you enough about me...... (Taker walks out of Shane's office)
(A vignette is shown to hype the upcoming Orton v Batista WCW World Heavyweight Title match) (A)
Batista v Randy Orton for the WCW World Heavyweight Title
Earl Hebner came out with his head heavily pandaged and tries to start the match but he is still to groggy....
Orton and Batista both try to knock some sense into him before arguing amongst themselves. Turner then hits the ramp!
Turner: My my my, What is this? Seriously what is this? WWE crap! I can't waych another second of it! Look you all, You can't even start a match let alone have one that will satisfy these fans!
(The crowd goes Wild!)
Turner: Now I warned all of you last week and again tonight, but did any of you listen? No you still came out here and bored me, I was nearly falling asleep back there for god's sake! I just cannot have you WWE bores represent the WCW name. I have to take things into my own hands now....
(Crowd pops big!)
Turner: So without further a do, I bring to you..... (Crowd pops even bigger now as the anticipation reaches fever pitch!)
Turner: The real WCW!!!
(The wrestlers appear from the crowd and jump the ring circling Batista and Orton as Ted announces them, The crowd is absolutely freaking out now!)
Turner: Diamond Dallas Page! Scott Steiner! Scott Hall! Kevin Nash! Vader! Sting!!!!
(Orton and Batista are back to back in the ring anticipating an attack, The WCW guys surround them now)
Turner: Oh and I nearly forgot.... Bill Goldberg!!!
(Goldberg heads straight for the Title at ringside and takes it in the ring to Batista, He lays it out on the ground and makes a challenge, Batista shoves Goldberg back into Hall and Nash, They instantly pounce on Batista driving him into the canvas with punches and stomps. Orton turns and RKO's Steiner then Vader, He turns to set up Sting with the RKO but DDP hits his own version with the Diamond Cutter. The WWE guys from the back now storm the ring, Benoit, Christian, Hardy and JBL. They nearly disperse of the WCW crew before Sting goes crazy and cleans house! Standing in the ring the sole survivor Sting raises his arms and grabs the mic.....)
Sting: No one can beat me! No one! I've beaten them all from Hogan to Flair.I'm not human! It would take the undead to beat me.....
(The lights go out and the arena is pitch black..... Taker's Music hits! Sting stays in the center of the ring not looking phased at the emerging smoke cloud that hovers around the ring. When the smoke clears Taker is standing behind Sting, Sting turns knowing what is too confront him.....
Taker: Ask boy and you will receive!
(Sting and Taker glare at eachother their faces now inches away)
Turner: Woh woh woh woh! Settle down there Stinger I don't want you rustling any more feathers on your first night here. Now I know you two want to settle this in the ring, But it's not going to be on Nitro. I can't have a gruesome grudge match like this sprayed all over TV, I'm not Vince McMahon! So it will be........ Sting vs The Undertaker at Halloween Havoc..... In a Buried Alive Match!
(Taker and Sting both grin at eachother thinking of the possibilities of what they'll do to one another. At Takers feet Orton and Batista come too....)
Turner: Oh and Batista, If you want a shot at Goldberg you got it buddy! The Main Event for Halloween Havoc will be Bill Goldberg vs Batista for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship!

Interesting. Will be watching this one to see how this turns out. Though, I have to wonder - would Mr. Benoit work for Mr. Turner again after how he was treated in that company? At least in WWE he's treated with some respect.
[Edit] Whoa. I posted prematurely. Nice second show, liked that more then the first. I thought you were just making SmackDown! - WCW. God, I need patience.

I know what you mean with the Benoit/Turner thing but it was not Turner's fault he got buried he had nothing to do with the booking of shows. He like Ric Flair that was about it. Anyways if you had told me five years ago that Vince McMahon would hire Eric Bischoff Kevin Nash and Scott Hall I would have laughed, The wrestling world works in funny ways.....
Mind you in this scenario guys like Taker and Benoit are forced by written contract to work for what is now WCW. I could have decreased the morale of guys loyal to McMahon but I hadn't thought of that.
I figure I'm an unkown booker and what better way to suck up to the boss then hire all his favourite guys. Hopefully I can fade the WWE guys out and establish "New Superstars" to compete with them
Batista over Goldberg.
Just the sort of 'Epic' battle that Batista needs. I think I might have Stinger versus 'Taker as the main event though, since it's sort of a 'Dream Match'
Stinger over 'Taker.
Orton over DDP.
The Wolfpack v The Radicalz
I say Draw.
Steiner over Christian.
Unless there is interference in favor of Christian.
Matt Hardy over Raven.
Raven is a better talker, but he's always just been a mid-carder or lower. Hardy on the otherhand is currently riding a wave of momentum, mind you that momentum has been speared by WWE Creative.. but it's salvagable.
Samoa Joe vs JBL
I hate my pick on this one. But, JBL has to go over. Samoa Joe is a relative unknown despite being impressive. JBL needs to look good, because he IS over and he can draw Heel heat well. Even if this is a game, you still need talkers, and JBL is a damn good one. If you're looking to build up Joe as a monster like TNA is doing, have JBL pull some strings..
Booker T over Corino.
Masato Tanaka & New Jack vs Mike Awesome & Sean O'Haire
Uh. No idea. O'Haire could be a good prospect for the future, could have been one for WWE, but they dumped that awesome gimmick they had him on. Then again, the hype videos were so awesome for that character that nothing WWE could have done would have lived up to it.
Rey Mysterio vs Juventud vs Paul London vs Psicosis.
I'm torn on this one. I'm gonna go with Rey.

can reach Batista. After another ref distraction Batista runs in and nails Page. With both men in the ring down and out again the crowd chants grow louder.... They are strange though......

Hall and Benoit are still the legal men as Benoit tags out to Eddie. Guerrero doesn't know he's been tagged in all of the ruckus and is hit out of nowhere with a powerbomb from Nash. Hall then quickly lands the razor's edge for the 1...2...3. Guerrero awakes not a happy latino!
Nash/Hal/Goldberg via pinfall 15:45 (A)
(As we come back from commercial break the ring has been decked out with red carpert and a large table with a WCW logo on it. Turner is in the ring and introduces both men. After lengthy entrances they take there positions on either side of the table.)
Ventura: I'm getting shivers up my spine right now just watching these two in the ring
Teany: You can certainly feel the electricity in the building as these two icons of the sport get ready to sign there lives away
Turner: Okay now you both understand the rules and stipulations of the match. You both know the risks involved and what it could do to both of your careers
Undertaker: Enough of the small talk Ted let's get this over with!
Turner: Okay Undertaker sign here...
(Taker snatches the pen form Turner's hand and signs his name, not once taking his pale white eyes off Sting)
(Sting signs then a evil grin appears on his face as he looks at Turner knowingly and nodds his head, Taker suspects fowl play but walks out of the ring up the ramp. As he reaches the curtain....)
Turner: Oh Undertaker.... I think I forgot to mention something....
(The Undertaker slowly turns around knowing he should've read the damn contract)
Turner: If you lose this Sunday at Halloween Havoc.... The Deadman will never return!

(Loud boos as the crowd grows very very hostile! Memories of WCW dusty finishes suddenly came back to the Safeco Stadium fans)
Crowd: Bull***! Bull****! Bull****!

Tenay: That's... That's Jushin Thunder Lyger!

Tenay: Oh you'll find out Jesse
Savage: Well he's not alone brother!
(Ted Dibiase steps through the curtains trailing Lyger)
Dibiase: Well hullo Seattle
(Crowd pops cheaply Dibiase & Lyger are obvious Babyfaces)
Dibiase: I'd like to introduce my newest client, The geatest junior-heavyweight wrestler in the history of this business Jushin Thunder Lyger.
Tenay: He's not lying there I can tell you that first hand.
Dibiase: NOw Juventud! I'm a business man, Let's talk business. How'd you like to make $100,000 in one night?
Juventud: (Nods and smiles at the Mexicools)
Dibiase: Well all you gotta do is defend that title you have there, against my man Jushin Lyger!
Juventud: You got that in writing!
Dibiase: Juvi? (looks at the crowd confused) I'm the Million Dollar Man!
Tenay: Well there you have it, Tonight, we're going to see Juventud defend his cruiserweight title again facing Jushin Lyger!
Ventura: I still don't know who this guy is Tenay?
Savage: O shut up Ventura! Dibiase just told who he is.... He's Justin Lightning Thunder!.....uhh, Is that right Tenay?
Tenay: Close enough Macho Man (sighs) close enough.

*New WCW Television Champion*
(Batista arrives backstage and a few "WWE" guys wish him luck against Goldberg tonight) (A)
Matt Hardy vs Raven - Ravens Rules
Nothing like the match expected from these two. From the beginning they just didn't click. Still some nice high spots including Hardy going from the top of the ladder to the outside floor. Story of the match was Raven trying to hit the Raven's Effect. In the end he never did and Hardy hits the Twist of Fate followed by a Leg Drop of a ladder for the clean win.
Hardy via pinfall 12:36 (C)
Christian vs Scott Steiner - WCW United States Title
Steiner looks strong out there even though he's getting beaten down the whole match? Steiner hits his belly to belly but Christian kicks out. Big Poppa then puts Captain Charisma in the Steiner Recliner but Christian reverses into a cradle for the near two. Steiner is gassed and Christian hits the Unprettier for 1,2,3.
Christian via pinfall 10:11 (B) Title Defence: 2
Jushin Thunder Liger vs Juventud - WCW Cruiserweight Title
Both men have great chemistry together and it showed in the match with awesome ariel displays by both. An open match with Liger getting attacked late by Super Crazy & Psicosis, London & Mysterio run in for the save and fight the heels up the ramp. As Juventud turns around after watching his stable getting ejected he gets hit with the Liger Bomb.
Jushin Liger via pinfall 21:11 (A)
*New WCW Cruiserweight Champion*
Diamond Dallas Page vs Randy Orton
Randy uses underhanded tactics to take the early advantage, working on DDP's well known bad back he cripples Page 10 minutes. DDP makes a comeback and hits the Diamond Cutter but Orton kicks out. Orton out of no where with the RKO, another legend killed.
Orton via pinfall 15:34 (A)
The Kliq vs The Radicalz - WCW World Tag Team Titles
Hall starts of with Benoit. Kliq dominates the rabid wolverine as he can't make the tag, Finally he reaches Eddie for the comeback. With the referee Nick Patrick's back turned Hall nails Eddie with some a tv monitor but Benoit doesn't see it. Eddie is out cold as Nash picks him up for the Jacknife. All over kiddies.
The Kliq via pinfall 17:50 (A) Title Defence 1
Sting vs The Undertaker - Buried Alive
After 7 minutes worth of entrances we hear the bell. Taker controls early throwing Stinger from turnbuckle to turnbuckle. After spilling outside of the ring Taker leads Sting up the ramp to the "grave". Taker sets up Sting for the Chokeslam but Sting reverses into a Scorpion Death Drop. As Stinger "wooooos" the crowd with his back to Taker the Deadman sits up. Sting turns around and is caught with the Chokeslam again, this time he lands a legal kick to the groin to escape. With Taker stunned Sting grabs the shovel and slams Taker over the head, again and Taker is down hard. Sting shoves him in the grave and quickly turns the cement truck on. As the grave fills up an evil smile overcomes Sting, He starts laughing like a madman, He's finally laid the Deadman to rest.
Sting via burial 18:32 (A*)
Baista vs Bill Goldberg
A long stare down with both men playing to the crowd, Split chants for both just like the last two Nitro's. A test of power has no victor and they unlock again. both then attempt shoulder charges with the same result. Eventually Batista takes advantage hitting two spinebusters in a row. Batista hits the Batista Bomb and makes the cover for a two count.... That's right a two count. Batista is in disbelief as Goldberg stands and shakes off his wounds. As Batista gets to his feet and turns....Spear...... Jackhammer 1,2,3.
Goldberg via pinfall 14:31 (A) *New WCW World Heavyweight Champion*
Ventura: We have ourselves a new champion Tenay!
Tenay: I can't believe it, In the blink of an eye Goldberg has defeated Batista for the WCW World Heavyweight Title! This is unbelievable! What will go down on Nitro tomorrow night when the new champ arrives? How will he be received? What does this mean for WCW?
