Held My First WCW Show
(Nightmare is Undertaker, The SSS is Rikishi & Meng, IceMen are Benoit & Malenko)
With my Highlights TV show gaining me pop across the whole country I have decided to stick to two regions of Japan (Tohoku for Juniors, Kanto for tags and Heavyweights) as I have no need to venture out for a while.
Davey and Roddy are leading the way both in the rankings and in match ratings (again ), and with their popularities ever rising they will surely put on the best match in my companies history when they next clash (either at a mid-tour special show, or at the tour finale. Torn on whether to have Davey or Eddie Edwards make the final to face Roddy.)
I got my dream match with Samoa Joe vs Satoshi Kojima done, although I am sad it didn't rank higher than 7th in my all time best matches. Kojima won his first two bouts over Finlay and MVP (who came in about a week after the tour started) before falling to Joe (which wouldn't have been possible if I didn't edit out Kojima's CC ).
Just after Kojima's loan ran out I was able to score another huge trade for my company. Shad Gaspard's previous loan with WWE (traded Shad/Kendrick for Danielson/Mistico) finally ran out after they gave him match 3 I decided to send him straight back for the best person I could get. So now Rey Mysterio will be having three matches with my promotion, altough again I will edit out his CC so I can give Davey and Roddy big wins over him, and then give him a match with Chavo Guerrero at my mid-tour PPV.
And I just said it in the last paragraph but it's still its own exciting point, I am now on PPV as well as TV . Meaning my Tour Finale shows will be shown across Japan for the first time, and also makes Mid-Tour special shows (one for juniors, one for heavyweight/tag teams) more justifiable.
Samoa Joe looks like the real star of the Heavyweights again, but who will challenge him in the final looks up for grabs. Sting or MVP would make great matchups, Doug Williams or Finlay could also put on a great match with Joe, but my heart tells me I need to put a Japanase star over this tour but my options of Mohammed Yone, Takashi Suguira, Daisuke Sekimoto, Shinjiro Otani or Taru don't really excite me. Will probably test out Suguira and Otani against Joe in the group phase to see if either can put on a match worthy of being a final. Although I have made a cheeky offer to Minoru Suzuki in hope he will come in (even though he is likely to be too popular to sign for me).
Tag teams are yet to really find their stride, with only the Kings of Wrestling putting on Main Event worthy matches. Made an offer to Shelton Benjamin though, hoping to grab him so I can move Haas away from the Heavyweights and have a new tag team worthy of winning the tour titles.
All in all the tour is looking good, with the planned line up for the finals currently:
Roderick Strong vs Davey Richards/Eddie Edwards
Samoa Joe vs ???
Kings of Wrestling vs The Briscoes/Worlds Greatest Tag Team
(You wouldn't be able to tell I am based in Japan from the look of those finals would you?
Fun fact: Out of the seven tour titles that have been won so far (1x Heavyweight, 3x Jr. Heavyweight, 3x Tag) Only one of these went to Japanes competitors, the Tag title from my first tour which was won by Naruki Doi & Masato Yoshino. This one title is the same as the amount of titles won (in part) by Swiss wrestlers (Claudio Castagnoli, as one half of the Kings of Wrestling, who won a tag title).)
Got a 2002 WWF game going (using one of Genadi's uber-cool mods)
I still ran with Flair presenting Triple H with the new 'Undisputed' title. It happened in the shows closing moment and as Triple H was presented with the belt, he was attacked by the nWo, who I plan to make a dominant force. This will lead to Triple H demanding a match with nWo the following week. This is when Shawn Michaels will return and we get a glimpse of DX vs nWo. However, in the match, Michaels 'turn' on Triple H and join the nWo.
The idea here is to have the fans feel sorry for Triple H and push him as the ultimate babyface who will lead the fight against the nWo.
But, in a HUGE swerve, Triple H will JOIN the nWo. At Backlash, he will face Hogan with the Undisputed title on the line. During the match, the nWo will make their way to ringside and get involved in the match. Triple H & Hogan stand side-by-side, united, and ready to tackle the nWo, but, before the fight can begin, Triple H kicks Hogan in the gut and Pedigrees him. Each member then starts hitting Hogan with their finisher. The Rock & Edge make their way to the ring but the numbers are too much and Hogan takes a hellacious beating. Triple H proclaims that from this day forward, the WWF is under the control of the nWo.
WWF will then go onto form a team of Undertaker, Austin, Rock, Kane, Angle & Edge to try and stop the nWo from taking over, just like they did in WCW. While WWF & nWo feud, both sides try to recruit Ric Flair. During the closing moments of an episode of RAW or SmackDown when the nWo and WWF are brawling in the ring, Flair will come out and say his decision has been made. The fighting stops as Flair walks towards the ring. With all eyes on Flair, the WWF and the nWo don't see GOLDBERG entering through the crowd. He gets in the ring and starts fight the nWo AND the WWF. Then from the back come Chris Jericho & Chris Benoit, followed by Eddie Guerrero and REY MYSTERIO!! Finally, as there is complete carnage in the ring, the lights will go down and when they come back on, STING is in the ring, wielding his black baseball bat!! Sting, Goldberg, Jericho, Benoit & Guerrero eventually clean house and are left standing in the ring. Flair joins them and says: "My choice is WCW!!!"
I'm also toying with an idea where Vince McMahon grows desperate to win the war. He puts aside his differences with Ultimate Warrior & Macho Man who dramatically re-join the WWF. Vince manages to convince Bret Hart to comeback in an effort to save the empire. Finally, Hogan returns from his injuries received at Backlash.
With the WWF now outnumbering the nWo & WCW, Flair & Triple H decide the nWo / WCW war can continue once the WWF is taken out.
Pure. Fantasy. Booking.
Still with the All League Wrestling game mentioned a couple of posts up. A week on from the previous update.
Don't ever say I don't give you good matches Samoa Joe. I signed Shelton Benjamin, which was good news in it's own right as now I have WGTT, but better news is since I went for a PPA deal instead of touring deal I have someone else to trade . So I wen't knocking at the doors of NOAH and NJPW (he already has a deal with AJPW ) looking who I could get for Shelty, and walked away with Jun Akiyama & Hiroshi Tanahashi from them (respectively).
Two more dream matches right there for you Joe.
Then I wen't to my good friends the WWE, since their taping schedule doesn't clash with my tag show (where Shelton will be situated) I decided to raid them as well (still haven't been able to utilise Mysterio though since Raw and Smackdown tapings clashed with my Junior Heavyweight shows, but one of them has been moved to Wednesdays now so Rey will be seen there). Although I could have had someone more over in Japan, e.g Kane, Morrison, Big Show, RVD..., I wen't for someone else that opens up many dream matches. CM Punk.
Not sure whether Punk will clash with my Juniors or Heavyweights yet, too many dream matches either way. If he wen't to juniors his matches would probably be:
CM Punk vs Davey Richards/Eddie Edwards/Roderick Strong
While in the Heavyweight division we would get any of:
CM Punk vs Samoa Joe/Sting/MVP/Akiyama/Tanahashi/Finlay
That is if I didn't run my own three match Punk vs Joe series.
So within a day of signing Shelton Benjamin he got me all of this:
I am just a bit happy right now. I love you Shelton.
May 2010 of my TCW game and SWF have just stolen Joey Minnesota. To his credit he let me make him an offer but Cornell wouldn't free up the money to let me match SWF's despite us being an International company and £4m in the black.
I had such high hopes for him. Godammit.
I'm puting a positive spin on this though. It's gotten rid of a very negative (albeit talented) influence backstage, freed up a main event spot for someone else and I've recently signed Rich Money who's pretty much a better version of Minnesota anyway.
A couple of monthes ago, I started a new game, with a beginning I like to have : building a new federation, starting in 1995, with updates each years for new wrestlers and promotions.
I picked the NWA, giving a 1 hour weekly TV show with a booking similar to what TNA did around 2005/2006 (my favourite wrestling "era"). I called this show Total Nonstop Action.
6 PPV in the year, all 3 hours long, except the NWA Anniversary Show, 4 hours.
Some booking problems came from WWF, WCW stealing my main eventers (I got a working agreement with ECW to keep some of them), and NJPW and CMLL my X Division wrestlers, but it give me the opportunity to push other wrestlers, and to sign young ones.
During the first monthes, I build a strong heel faction "Raven's Nest", with Raven, Stevie Richards, Perry Saturn, John Kronus, Rhino, Adam Copeland, Christian Cage and Doug Williams.
For the World title, the first feud was between Cactus Jack, Roddy Piper and The Giant, but Piper and The Giant quickly left NWA and joined WCW.
Then the top main eventers with Cactus Jack became Raven and Taz.
A stable "war" took place between Raven's Nest, and the fusion of 2 smallers groups made of Luchadores and Japanese wrestlers (Eddie Guerrero, Hector Garza, Jushin Liger, Koji Kanemoto, Kenta Kobashi...)
During that time, I build Rocky Maivia to the main event with an undefeated streak. He was allied to the Nest without being a member.
Each year, at the December PPV, the World Title match is the "King of the Mountain Match". Rocky Maivia won the first one and became "The Rock".
Then, no chance with the world title storylines. The Rock vs Cactus Jack ended when Cactus Jack Jack joined WWF. Then, The Rock vs Taz ended when Taz got injured. Then, The Rock vs Chris Benoit started well, but The Rock left and joined WWF, 2 weeks after my last PPV.
So I decided to make a "all stars tournament" for my following PPV, signing new wrestlers, crowning as World Champion Owen Hart. Unfortunately, he joined CMLL before the King of the Mountain. I build this match as a "all stars" again, crowning young Kurt Angle, a few monthes after he had his gold medal.
In the beginning of 97, i kept away from the World Title the stables, to book a strong "Lethal Lockdown" in my April PPV, and a feud between Chris Benoit and William Regal, had Kurt Angle included, for the World title.
The Nest won the stable war (the other titles were involved in), so during the summer, a feud between Raven and Kurt Angle began, with Raven becoming World Champion.
In the late 97, Kurt Angle has been joined by Diamond Dallas Page. Together, they founded the "new World order" and had been joined by Chris Benoit and by Adam Copeland & Christian Cage, who left Raven.
This new stables war is just beginning (I'm currently in 1998 February).

that game sounds awesome, sounds like your having a blast
not much to update on my AAFW game except i bought out MPWF and now have El Barbaro
Yay for even more talent trades. Taru's p.p.a deal with NOAH finished but now he is heading straight back there in return for Takeshi Morishima.
Ran my Mid Tour PPV's, first up was the Heavyweight and Tag Teams, who drew 6000+ fans in Kanto. The show opened up with The Kings of Wrestling beating London Calling (Doug Williams & Paul Burchill) in a match that at the time became the best match in my companies history (B/83).
The show took a bit of a slump in match ratings for the early to mid show matches (ranging from 54 to 71), but it was to be expcted based on the matches I put out. MVP picked things up again by defeating Finlay in a good match (78). Takeshi Sugiura beat Taru in an average match (64), but then it was on to the main events.
In the co-main event, Jun Akiyama beat Sting in a match that ranked #10 on my top #10 matches after the show, getting a very good rating for me (82), and setting up a future Samoa Joe vs Jun Akiyama match on the tour.
Then in the main event Samoa Joe defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi after a hard hitting 27 minute battle, that overtook the shows opener to become the best match in my companies history, rating out at B+/84. This also meant that Samoa Joe earned a huge win over another top Japanese star, having beaten Satoshi Kojima earlier in the tour. The win also propelled Joe's overness in Kanto to 86, and over the whole of Japan to 72.
The bad news of this is now he is either too over to sign for me or right on the verge of it, and given the fact he has planned wins over Jun Akiyama and Takeshi Morishima to come, I have a feeling Joe won't be back for the next tour, and I will be lucky as hell if he hasn't been picked up by NJPW (who are national), by the time I reach national.
The Heavyweight/Tag show was by far my favourite show I have booked in the game, thanks mainly to getting to book Joe vs Tanahashi on PPV, but it also graded out to be my best show. Then it was on to my Jr. Heavyweights, where even more excitement waited.
Up until the main events this was just a standard card that gave me a chance to put on some fun match-ups that were impossible due to the groupings, or just fun matches that I hadnt had a chance to pull off yet. The fans were treated to matches such as Cima vs Masato Tanaka (79), Tajiri vs El Generico (70), Zack Sabre vs Chavo Guerrero (72), Rocky Romero vs Jimmy Yang (82), Christopher Daniels vs Delirious (73), and several other, less important match-ups.
Then came the main events, I had a lot of internal debate about how to top this show off. With a mix of my own talent, Davey Richards/Roderick Strong/Eddie Edwards, and stars in on trade, Rey Mysterio/Low Ki/Ryo Saito/CM Punk (who I still haven't decided what to do with), I could have put on a number of great matches.
I went for the co-main event of Eddie Edwards vs Ryo Saito, which was a great match which slotted straight into #4 on my top ten matches (Rated 83). Which left me with the main event of perennial rivals Davey Richards & Roderick Strong teaming up again to face the outsiders Rey Mysterio & Low Ki in a tag team match. After 22 minutes the match was won by Davey Richards by pinning Low-Ki. And to my suprise the match outdid Joe vs Tanahashi from a few nights ago, scoring an 86 to jump to the top of my #10 matches.
So after 2 huge nights, I have a new top 2 best shows and 4 new entrants into my top 10 matches, which happen to be the 4 top matches.
I am starting to fall back in love with this save game. Just got to decide how and when to use up Akiyama, Tanahashi, Morishima, Mysterio, Punk & Ki's remaining dates on their loan deals. I am guessing the fans that attend my tour shows will be in for a treat over the coming weeks, before their final matches take place at my tour finale shows.
At the end of 2016, Wrestling Without Borders continues the slow crawl to cult level. We are at C- populairty in the mid-south, D- popularity in the southwest, and have begun alternating the southwest monthly shows with shows in the midwest to expand our footprint a little. The upper end of the card is starting to get a little old, most notably demonstrated by Ultimate Phoenix coming back to the promotion for one last run with the title, but the midcard feels re-invigorated with young talent ready to move up the card once the old standard-bearers can no longer go. I am also hoping that when we finally hit cult we might be able to attract more top flight international talent.

Playing a Local to Global game using my created promotion WWE in the c-verse ...with some cheats
Trying to make my User the best in the world while also helping put over young talent. Also made working agreements with SWF,TCW,NOTBPW and eventually brought out CGC. So i just abuse the talent trades but only for my big name ppvs if i need some star power.

Currently taking a backseat in terms of in ring action to change my gimmick and then im planning to make a return to face Troy Tornado if i can get him traded again.
I know im very biased for myself but i wanna make my avatar the best in the world while putting over other talent such as Champagne Lover (4-5).
My highest rated match was my first match with Tommy Cornell 97/A*
I decided to start a "0/0/0/0" game as of last night within the CVerse. I've always done this with every version of TEW but for some reason I never did it with TEW2010 (too busy with MAW). New England Championship Wrestling was created January 2010 with 0 popularity, 0 prestige, 0 momentum, and $0 moolah. I'm using The Grand Avatar as my user character and I've simulated until January 2011 without running a single show. My product is based heavily on ROH - traditional (heel vs. face) and pure wrestling (based heavily on performance).
I've been able to acquire about $30,000 in a year worth of simulating ($2,500/mo). I'm planning to run our first show in July of 2011 after we've saved quite a substantial amount of money. We're going to instantly lose money which is why I'm simulating so much before running a show. I'll probably have my user character as the referee (with 0 skills) and I'll need to hire a cheap announcer, a cheap road agent, and very cheap talent ($50-100/per show).
Paying for my roster isn't going to kill me. It's renting out buildings that we can't sell-out that's going to kill us. Anybody have any REAL success running a 0/0/0/0 promotion without 'cheating' here and there? I'm really excited to start hiring talent in a few more simulated months. I've used A LOT of the younger talent in the CVerse but I've never had to find the cheapest talent. I'm really excited for that challenge.
I never quite understand doing that with a 0/0/0/0. Part of the challenge is trying to deal with having such a short bankroll, if you're going to skip the first year then you might as well just give yourself more starting cash. I only ever take off the very first month, and that's to take care of all the setting up I need to do to make my promotion viable (hiring workers, getting the roster in order, getting the right staff), which generally takes most of the month anyway.
You can afford a referee, you should get one, otherwise your ratings will get massacred - even if it's an Alan Grey or a Chad Brent, they're better than nothing. A no-talent referee is going to impair already poor matches.
You don't though, need a roadie at this size. Just use whichever of your workers has passable psychology. A road agent is an unnecessary expense at Local.
Seriously though - whilst this was with a product that is very sponsorship friendly (so I get quite a bit of cash to play with) I had absolutely no trouble using talent at 400 a pop from the very beginning, with minimal penny pinching. With a product that's fairly neutral to sponsors, I still managed to turn a (slender) profit over a year, with penny pinching. You won't die unless you're reckless with money, basically.
As for success with a 0/0/0/0... flick back a couple of pages to my mammoth post (it's at the top, you can't miss it, xD). The abridged version is: yes, it's January 2018 and I'm at Cult, no cheating, making massive profits. I'm about to book the first PPV of the year, have a strong roster and if I'm lucky and can maintain strong show quality, might be able to hit National this year.
Well... unless you consider a moderately talented user character to be cheating (we're talking approximately Takayuki Avatar level here)
The greatest thing about the CVerse is how everything changes with each new game. I appreciate your input, thanks.
Just completed SummerSlam 2002 in my WWF (2001->) game. It rated a 94, which is currently my highest rated event in the save, beating the 2001 edition of SummerSlam by two points. (!!) The main event saw The Rock (representing the Faces) finally defeating Shawn Michaels (representing the Brotherhood) for the WWF Heavyweight Championship, the Raw main event gold in a 98 rated affair. I really don't know what to do with The Brotherhood Raw from this on forward, especially Shawn Michaels. The semi-main event (SmackDown ME) saw Eddie Guerrero retain his World championship against Rey Misterio Jr. in a match rated 94.
Other matches weren't that important mostly some title defences, building The Brotherhood further and a couple of comebacks in time for the launching of a B-brand called SWiFT. SWiFT will be fully launched in September when the television show will begin and will feature several veterans and youngsters in need of improvement. I'm thinking it as some kind of middle-ground between developmental and A-shows for youngsters and place for the veterans to battle until they retire.
Such a fun save I must say and I was so happy how the whole SummerSlam turned out. Also, I'm slowly starting to outline past WrestleMania 2003.
