Ultimate Backyard Wrestling(Cornellverse)
The beginning of UBW:
Timmy Cornell(not his real name but he pays homage to the wrestling god) and I were tired of how SWF and TCW booked cards. We were tired of the separation of the great wrestlers between all the feds. TCW had Cornell; NOTBPW had the Stones, Sean McFly, and Acid; and Japan had Onji Taka*bleep*ita, Kozue Kawashima, Emerald Angel, and Noriyora Sanda.
Timmy Cornell had watched a lot of wrestling material and the man could book cards and knew wrestlers who had potential. Unfortunately, the guy couldn't call a match because he would always require the wrestlers to perform super hero moves. Double footed stomps from the top of the cage being one example. He also liked matches with a lot of big moves, like 50 rolling german suplexes. In short, he had no psychology. So he was a member of the booking team and the owner of the fed. Mostly because it was his parents who contributed most of the 25,000 starting funds.
We knew we couldn't book our dream Sean McFly versus Tommy Cornell matches so we wanted to hold a place for UNDERGROUND wrestlers to prove themselves. We only wanted young fresh workers to battle it out and see who was the cream of the rookies. We hired the highly respected albeit not the best performing referee Bret Graveson to be a referee and road agent. We hired Stuart Ferdinand to be another Road Agent, and to help the wrestlers with their matches, we lied to him and told him he would be pushed as a main eventer but we didn't want him to actually wrestle.
Ben Williams, Lion Heart, and Jerry Martin were our announcing team. We might have them get in the ring eventually especially Jerry Martin but this is another case where we lied about their push.
So we had one referee, myself, 4 lied pushes, and 8 actual in-ring workers. The 8 workers was perfect for our first storyline which would be held on Friday, Week 2 of December in our base location of the Great Lakes. There was going to be a tournament for the UBW Championship title. Unfortunately, we didn't know what we had planned until right before the show.. We just wanted to get some shows in the bag cause we knew it would be mostly the wrestlers families showing up.
The first show was as could be expected. Bret Graveson and Stuart Ferdinand kept order in the locker room but was that order worth their 3000 combined salaries? The tournament storyline didn't go as expected as we didn't realize that the matches had to be in a certain order until it was too late, so the matches will be repeated next show UBW Front Row Seats Available. We worked out the finances and at about 4000+ costs to run a show and 1000 in sponsors that we should do a show around every three months. We would still lose money but not as fast.
17 people attended the show.
Cornell and I wanted heels to be special. Timmy Cornell felt that Flemmy Lemming should be our big star so he was made the heel and the one we booked to win the 8 man tournament. Leroy was our only other heel who we chose to have the hired gun gimmick.
Flemmy Lemming gave an interview for five minutes where he announced the 8 man tournament and specifically his main event match against Geoff Borne. He talked about how he was the best wrestler and the favorite of UBW management. This got a lot of heel heet because most of the crowd were family and friends of the other wrestlers. The segment still bombed.

I arranged the tournament based on card position so the lower midcard, midcarders would get eliminated first. The road agents Bret Graveson and Fernando Stewart(I didn't even realize who Stuart Ferdinand was, friggin' name changes) had a very low opinion of Kinuye Mushashibo's in-ring abilities. Unfortunately she only speaks japenese, so I couldn't stick her on the announce team. I couldn't make her interfere in random matches or be some guy's manager to keep her happy either cause I needed 8 wrestlers to be even for matches. If she continues to suck, I'll find a way.

5-Minute Hype Video(The Plot Points):
The final round of the tournament. Flemmy Lemming will defeat Leroy. On paper the match is a battle of two strong stylers. But, is that the way it's going to be? Flemmy Lemming is known as the Chosen One of Owner Timmy Cornell. Leroy is the Hired Gun who's let it known in the locker room that he's willing to wear any wrestler down before a match if the price is right.
Flemmy Lemming has paid Leroy to take a dive thanks to money provided by himself and owner Timmy Cornell.

The Biggest Match in UBW History!!!!
Stuard Ferdinand the road agent was given notes to Overbook(there were going to be a couple twists), tell the workers to go all out, and to work the crowd(we wanted Flemmy Lemming and Leroy to get some heel heat). The match starts by Lemming throwing a wuss punch on Leroy and Leroy falls to the ground instantly. Lemming hits some ground and pound which doesn't even touch Leroy and Leroy sells it.
Mr. Chosen One then proceeds to mock the crowd about how crappy this match is. Lemming then traps Leroy in a head vice and Leroy starts complaining that this really hurts!!!!
Leroy asks if he can tap and Lemming says he can't and that Leroy will tap when Lemming says Leroy will tap. Leroy instinctively trys to break free and gives Lemming an eye gouge. Leroy breaks the hold and asks "What the hell is going on?" Flemmy Lemming bodyslams Leroy and then attempts three stiff as hell kicks. Leroy blocks the third kick and tosses Lemming on the ground. Leroy goes for a leg drop right across Lemming's neck but he rolls out of the way.
Lemming hits 50 surfboards and mocks the crowd about how repetitive the match is and how they're getting ripped off. Leroy can't tap because his arms are trapped! Leroy yells "I quit! I quit! Get this retard off me!!!!"
Lemming is the first ever UBW Champion.
Lemming celebrates in a mocking way torwards the crowd thus brining the 8 man tournament storyline to a close. F

Leroy suffered an 80 day injury due to a ruptured spleen. But since shows are only about once every 90 days that's no problem.
As everyone with a brain could've predicted ROF went out of business. British Samurai knew this was going to happen so he opened a new fed with a style never before seen in THE ENTIRE CORNELLVERSE!!!! Europe was going to be the first to see the new fed style of LUCHA PURE!!!! Flemmy Lemming was invited to join this brand new fed European Lucha Wrestling. Flemmy Lemming accepted the contract but informed us that UBW would still be his first priority.
In 90+- days on UBW Family and Friends Only
Our road agents Fernando Stewart and Bret Graveson were confident that Flemmy Lemming had the potential to become a lot better at high flying so he begins a program with the aerialist Geoff Borne.

The fact that Hell Monkey and Catherine Quine were more talented and cheaper than Fernando Stewart and Bret Graveson encouraged the booking team to institute a new policy of not resigning workers who would usually demand a 50$ raise more often than not.

Hell Monkey pulls double duty against Samoan Machine and another match against Geoff Borne.
Jerry Martin and Leroy fight the first match in their best of seven series.
Catherine Quine takes on Flemmy Lemming in a non-title bout due to the fact that Catherine Quine is too old for the title.
I had originally planned on starting with 25,000 but I realized with only that much money I could only do one show a year as months without shows produce 400 in profit and months with shows cost like 4000 to do. I realized I should've started with around 100,000 as even with that much you still have to do conservative on shows. So I edited my cash to have 75,000 more dollars. Now I can try to do 12 shows a year. Each show is held on the first Sunday of the Month so as to make sure that Hell Monkey and Catherine Quine are available.

Catherine Quine Shot T-Shirts for five minutes A* Needed something that was five minutes even for the pre show
Puma Boy has realized his Sci-Fi Fandom was lame and has decided to become a disco stud. It worked for him because he managed to land the Puma Pounce on Huey "Stale" Cannonball in a five minute house of fun match. F (Both of them got fired after this match)
Leroy set Jerry Martin on fire in a minimum length Inferno Match. E(Leroy's Hired Gun gimmick is getting stale which I don't blame the crowd for as it's never mentioned in the show anymore)
Catherine Quine and Flemmy Lemming didn't click in a 15 minute shoot fight. C
A hype video was shown hyping the Chosen One Flemmy Lemming and how he has been booked to look good. And how for example he was booked as the obvious loser for his match against Catherine Quine but he didn't lose the title because it was a non-title bout. F
Hell Monkey looked good when he House of Funned Geoff Borne after ten minutes. They don't click. C (Geoff Borne is about as good as Puma Boy and Huey Cannonball with some more psychology but he's protected as he's young and has faced people that made him look good)
Hell Monkey was too unhappy to be booked to lose to the Samoan Machine after 15 minutes in a BW USA. Which is unfortunate because the three top contendors storyline requires him to lose a match. C+
Jerry Martin cut a four minute promo about how he was tired of the best of seven series against Leroy and that he deserved a title shot against Flemmy Lemming. F

UBW Ultimate Hell(I miss the Ultimate Hell matches of 2004)
Leroy walked into his match against Jerry Martin debuting his new underworld gimmick. Unfortunately, it was only rated B like his last Hired Gun gimmick. Degenerate Gimmicks seem to score best as both Samoan Machine and Des Davids have it and they are both rated A*. The BW USA filled the pre-show but Jerry Martin got tired torwards the end. I knew this was going to happen but I wanted this segment to fill 20 minutes. E
Des Davids retrieved a title opportunity against any titles that should debut against Hitomaro Suzuki in a fifteen minute match which the smark fans in the audience commented that it didn't have enough psychology. E
Flemmy Lemming gave the permanent solution to a temporary problem to Marimaso Kato. D

Catherine Quine didn't look as good no more when she Cat's Cradled Geoff Borne in their typical ten minute House of Fun bout. C+
Hell Monkey refused to put American Elemental over at all beating him three falls to none in a sixty minute ironman match. Unfortuantely, they had the stamina but not the psychology for the bout. Hell Monkey asked for a $1,000 raise last contract negotiations when his matches aren't worth that much. So Corporal Doom has been brought in to begin training as a Road Agent and to replace Hell Monkey as a locker room leader after the storyline that Hell Monkey is involved in is over. C

So, there should be about two more shows before the overpriced Hell Monkey can be fired. C+
Catherine Quine taunts Flemmy Lemming for 13 minutes to kill some time. Basically, she talks about how Flemmy Lemming doesn't deserve the title and she parades her hot body around to kill some more time. B-
Attendance: 46 Show Rating: C+
Ultimate Backyard Wrestling rises to small size. Next show is a medium Hyped Event Family and Friendlys Only and will be 4 hours long with many workers pulling double duty matches. Flemmy Lemming is lowered from his upper midcard push to Lower Midcarder which makes the main event UBW Championship Title not suited for him. However, the booking committee of Timmy Cornell, Catherine Quine, and Corporal Doom still think he should be in line for a push. They also believe Zimmy Burfhole and Frankie Perez should be pushed and that the shows should revolve around Hell Monkey. The fed has about 50,000 in it's coffers but that amount could go down really fast if Hell Monkey isn't sacked soon.
