After the Screwjob (TEW 2016)

Post by Jama7301 » Wed Jul 06, 2016 11:27 am

We return with another multiplayer Total Extreme Wrestling fantasy booking game. This time, Myself, Greg, and Goober will be locked in during the Attitude Era.

It's the start of December, 1997, and Bret has walked out on WWF. WCW has a considerable lead in terms of audience, finances, and star power. Will they be able to keep their stranglehold on their title of "Top Wrestling Company in the World"?

Greg will be taking over the role of Eric Bischoff. His goal: To keep WCW from collapsing into total madness and disarray. Will he be able to stop the Death of WCW?

Goober will be playing as Vincent Kennedy McMahon, and the WWF. He's got history on his side, and a stable of young stars on the rise. Can he capitalize on their potential, and turn the tides in his favor?

I will be taking over ECW as Paul Heyman. I aim to live in the cracks that those two behemoths leave. With the threat of raiding always on the horizon, will I be able to keep the lights on, and the vocal Philly crowd happy?

It's time to make history, all over again.

And that's only if the trains get out of the station. Greg's up first and we might not get started before September, the way he churns out shows

At least Nitro is only two hours, and not three.

I meant for Greg's WWF in the DOTT game. If it took him that long to write less than two hours of TV, how long would two hours take him?

Yeah, it's not the length of the show it's Greg doesn't start to write until he's got the idea that will produce the best possible show that has ever showed.

I'm trying to find the right buttons to push to motivate Greg to break through that block, but I don't think I've found the right ones yet. Anyone got ideas?

I'm no near as bogged down, with this. I'm just trying to find my feet with an enormous roster, few starting stories, and no much knowledge of who he fuck a lot of these wrestlers are. That said, the show's nearly ready to sim, and writing will be much quicker than with WWF.

WCW at that point had a roster of ostentatious proportions.

Because Ted Turner really liked it and given that TBS was the original station that had been airing NWA (and Georgia Championship Wrestling and even WWF for a bit) since the late 70's, Ted wanted to keep wrestling on TBS. Unfortunately, Jamie Kellner came along to Time Warner and crushed Ted's dreams.

WCW Monday Nitro
Monday, Week 1, Dec 1997
Williams Arena; Greenville, North Carolina
Attendance: 14,625 (sellout)

Pre-Show

In a pre-show bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Rey Mysterio Jr. and Chavo Guerrero Jr. defeated Lodi and Sick Boy in 7:25 when Rey Mysterio Jr. defeated Sick Boy by pinfall with a Springboard Hurracanrana.
61

In a pre-show bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Mortis defeated Lenny Lane in 2:38 by pinfall with a Superkick.
53

In an extremely short pre-show match, Harlem Heat defeated Hugh Morrus and Louie Spicolli in 5:30 when Booker T defeated Louie Spicolli by pinfall with a Missile Dropkick.
56

Main Show

In-Ring: Diamond Dallas Page w/Kimberly Page, and nWo (Randy Savage, Konnan & Elizabeth)
  • DDP kicks off Nitro with a bang. Like everyone here, he can't wait to see the Stinger back in action, taking the World Heavyweight Championship back from the cluches of the nWo, in 4 weeks, at Starrcade. Sting spent the past year up in the rafters, while DDP has been down in the trenches, taking the fight to them. But what matters is the here and now, and right here, in this very ring, tonight, Diamond Dallas Page is going to take the fight one more time to a man he's seen a lot of in 97, Randy Savage.
  • Right on cue, Savage comes out, flanked by the lovely Elizabeth, and the not so lovely Konnan. They enter the ring, tensions running high, but DDP surrenders the microphone to let him have his say. Savage can't wait to get his hands on the Diamond man again, yeah, and remind him what happens when you stick your nose in the nWo's business. It's a good thing DDP doesn't have a match for Starrcade, because after tonight, he won't make it there. Tonight, he'll feel the madness.
  • Savage drops the mic, and DDP collects it as he rolls out of the ring. No, no, he says; tonight, you will feel... the... BANG!
85

Dean Malenko vs. Juventud Guerrera
  • Mike Tenay joins commentary for this Cruiserweight action, as a mini-tournament commences to determine the #1 contender to Eddy Guerrero's Cruiserweight Championship, at Starrcade. In this bout, Dean Malenko truly shows that he is the Man of 1000 Holds, by having an answer for everything in Juventud Guerrera's vast arsenal, advancing to the triple threat final in three week's time.
In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Dean Malenko defeated Juventud Guerrera in 10:12 by submission with a Texas Cloverleaf.
76

Backstage: Eddy Guerrero and Chris Jericho
  • Guerrero is shown swaggering around backstage, showing off his Cruiserweight title to anyone who will look. As he brags about his accolades, he is interrupted by applause, which is revealed to be Chris Jericho, slowly clapping. He implores Guerrero to keep going, tell the people how great he is, because it's just going to make Jericho look all the better, when he walks into Starrcade, and walks out as the new Cruiserweight Champion. Guerrero recovers his composure, gets in Jericho's face, and tells him that he'd better hope he loses this little tournament, because whoever his opponent is at Starrcade is only going to be remembered as the guy who lost to Eddy Guerrero.
58

Chris Benoit vs. Hammer w/Raven, Saturn, Riggs, Kidman, Lodi & Sick Boy
  • In a fair fight, Benoit would take this easily. Unfortunately for him, Raven's Flock doesn't offer a fair fight. Even with Raven's Rules allowing copious interference, Benoit still wrestled himself into a solid advantage, only to have the Flock enter the ring full force, throwing out the match, and leaving Benoit laying.
In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Chris Benoit defeated Hammer in 6:37 when Hammer was disqualified when Raven's Flock ran in and attacked Chris Benoit.
66

In-Ring: Raven's Flock (Raven, Saturn, Riggs, Kidman, Lodi & Sick Boy) and Chris Benoit
  • Without fail the Hammer falls
    Answering only the Raven's calls
    The Wolverine shall join the score
    Quoth the Raven, nevermore
60

Interview: Gene Okerlund and Ric Flair
  • It's always a party when the Nature Boy comes to Norh Carolina, but at Starrcade, it will be anything but a party for Curt Hennig, when he steps into a steel cage with Flair for the United States title. Hennig put an end to the Four Horsemen by slamming Flair's head in a cage door, in War Games. Come Starrcade, it'll be a lot more than just Hennig's head that tastes the steel, while the Nature Boy will be tasting champagne, victory, and gold. WOOOOOOO!!!
63

Rick Martel vs. Buff Bagwell w/Scott Norton & Eric Bischoff
  • In the prime of his athletic life, Bagwell should probably take this easily, but nWo splitting their attention between Martel and Larry Zbyszko on commentary allowed the wily veteran to make it a match. When things looked like they might get out of hand, big Scott Norton made his presence felt, tipping the scales in a way that they would stay tipped.
In a decent match, Buff Bagwell defeated Rick Martel in 7:58 by pinfall with a Yellow Jacket Suplex.
68

In-Ring: nWo (Buff Bagwell, Scott Norton & Eric Bischoff), and Larry Zbyszko
  • With victory secured, nWo turn their full attention to Zbyszko. Bischoff says that Zbyszko has asked for a match with him, for control of the company, and that will happen... except that it wouldn't be fair. Bischoff spoke to WCW executives, and they've agreed that it would put the company at undue risk to have someone so important to the behind the scenes operations compete alone in the ring. How would it look for a member of the nWo to beat a lowly commentator so badly he couldn't perform his duties? So, Zbyszko will get his match, but it will be a tag match: Zbyszko and whatever poor sap he can con into teaming with him versus Vicious & Delicious, Scott Norton & Buff Bagwell. Bagwell throws a few more barbs in there, as Zbyszko says into his headset that this is a coward's play, but he wouldn't expect anything less from a snake like Eric Bischoff.
67

Video: The Giant, Lex Luger, nWo (Hollywood Hogan, Kevin Nash & Scott Hall)
  • Highlights of The Giant, featuring his battles with Hogan, Nash, and Hall, and the occasional team he's formed with Lex Luger.
87

Interview: Gene Okerlund, and The Outsiders (Kevin Nash & Scott Hall)
  • As he has a lot, recently, Kevin Nash has some nasty things to say about The Giant, with Hall chiming in that there are large dudes in this business, but Big Sexy is the only one that's big where it counts. They then show a video package of The Giant that is poorly cut, has silly music, and pieces togeher clips to make him look a fool. When it ends, The Outsiders are killing themselves laughing, leaving Okerlund to end the interview himself.
83

Backstage/In-Ring: Goldberg
  • Flanked by security (for YOUR protection), Goldberg makes his entrance.
82

Goldberg vs. Fit Finlay
  • Fit Finlay will always get his licks in, during a fight, but Goldberg is a train that can't be stopped. Who's next?
In an extremely short match, Goldberg defeated Fit Finlay in 5:23 by pinfall with a Jackhammer.
57

In-Ring: Goldberg, Fit Finlay, and Steve McMichael w/Debra McMichael
  • Goldberg's celebration of the Streak continuing is cut short by Steve McMichael hitting the ring, getting in Goldberg's face, then lifting up Fit Finlay to drop him again with a Mongo Spike. With that message sent, the McMichaels make their way back out.
69

Interview: Gene Okerlund, and The Steiner Brothers (Scott & Rick Steiner) w/Ted Dibiase
  • The World Tag Team Champions talk about next week's #1 contendership match between The Outsiders and Harlem Heat. The brothers are confident, but Rick has to repeatedly intervene to rein in Scott, who appears increasingly unhinged of late. Dibiase plays peacemaker, telling the boys to harness that aggression and intensity into defending the gold at Starrcade.
73

Video: Bret Hart
  • Training highlights (from the WCW Powerplant) of the man described as the hottest free agent in professional wrestling.
83

Diamond Dallas Page w/Kimberly Page vs. Randy Savage w/Elizabeth & Konnan
  • These two feuded through most of the year, which truly put DDP on the map. This match featured all the greatest hits of that feud, in a condenced form. In the end, DDP avenged the loss at Halloween Havoc, turned back the interference from Savage's nWo stablemates, and connected with a Diamond Cutter for a big win.
In an exceptional match, Diamond Dallas Page defeated Randy Savage in 13:23 by pinfall with a Diamond Cutter.
84

In-Ring: Diamond Dallas Page w/Kimberly Page, nWo (Hollywood Hogan, Randy Savage & Konnan) w/Elizabeth, and Sting
  • As soon as the referee counts the three, Konnan barrels into the ring to attack DDP. Page looks to fight him off, but Savage recovers enough to be handed a chair by Elizabeth, putting a stop to the resistance. With DDP out, Hollywood Hogan saunters down to the ring, where he says that Page was told he'd be reminded what happens when you stick your nose in the nWo's business. He then has Konnan get DDP out of "my" ring. This is Hogan's ring, and the same fate awaits Sting, if he has the balls to finally show up for a match, at Starrcade.
  • Sting walks out onto the stage, and stands there, motionless. Hogan yells taunts, getting frustrated at the lack of a response, and orders Savage and Konnan to go bring that coward into his ring. As they approach Sting, he disappears backstage, with the nWo goons in tow. Hogan tries to stop them, before they leave, sensing something is up, but they are gone before he can.
98

In-Ring: nWo (Hollywood Hogan & Eric Bischoff), and Sting
  • Suddenly Sting - the REAL Sting - appears in the ring, behind Hollywood Hogan, with baseball bat in hand. Hearing the crowd bubble over, Hogan slowly wheels around, and begs off. Sting takes a step forward, and Hogan falls on his ass, pleading for peace. Eric Bischoff comes racing out from the back, microphone in hand, yelling for Sting to stop right there. Heading into the ring, he announces that a no-contact rule is now in place between Hogan & Sting, up until their match at Starrcade, or else the offender will forfeit the match. Sting points his bat at Hogan, and in a scene we've seen many times over the past year, drops the bat, turns his back, and invites him to strike. Hogan reaches for it, but Bischoff talks him down, only to grab the bat himself, and take a swing at Sting's back. Somehow, the Stinger sensed it coming, caught the bat in one outstretched hand, and slowly turned to stare a spooked Bischoff in the eye. Sting pulls the bat out of Bischoff's hands, which instantly sends the two nWo members racing from the ring. Sting leans over the ropes as they depart, pointing the bat sraight at Hollywood Hogan, as the show fades to black.

Greg got the ball rolling with a great show out of the gate. Solid starting rating. TEW 2016 looks to be a much sharper system than the TEW from the Return to the Territories game.
