In 1996, the internet was still young and fresh, and a site named Wrestlecrap had taken the wrestling fandom by storm.

Also ECW had money troubles.

These two circumstances somehow resulted in Tod Gordon challenging R.D. Reynolds to do better, and relying on his, uh, incredible financial muscle to bail out the company. Don't worry about it too much man, I scrapped my original backstory of Great Power Uti taking over USWA through an email scam.

((I will probably do predictions because that seems good at keeping people engaged! Please be forewarned that I know virtually nothing about actual ECW, so if you are expecting anything realistic or fitting in with existing lore, you're gonna be sad))

i'd like to log my own TEW stuff somewhere but there's no all purpose TEW topic and i probably wouldn't update enough to justify its own topic - can i dump some in here?

to illustrate the "ECW" you guys are in for

I changed New Jack's picture to John Cena's because I didn't wanna look at blood

PREDICT IT!
ECW House Party

Pre-show: Rotten v. Saturn
(2) Tag Titles: Jack+Whipwreck (c) v. Public Enemy v. Headhunters
(2) Team AAA (Rey/Juvy/Konnan) v. The Flock (Raven/Stevie/Meanie)
(2) #1 Contender: Sabu v. Scorpio v. Douglas
(3) ECW Title Stretcher: Sandman (c) v. Del Ray
BONUS (2): What non-wrestler will make a big impact?

Tiebreaker: What GRADE (not number) will the show get?

I'm still figuring out how prediction prizes are gonna work here. ECW runs two big events a month in this mod (not sure whether I'll stick to that?) which means very fast cycles, which probably means modest prizes. Also thinking of having the points of the losers carry over to next cycle so you have an incentive to keep going even if you're not gonna win. Thoughts?

Roster is gonna shake up a bit so I'm not going to post a roster YET but it's coming

this is an inauspicious start lol

Plans in the previous game:
-Arn Anderson would be able to wrestle again in a few months, and he, Flair, Tully, and ??? would've formed the Horsemen.
-PARKAMANIA were going to win the tag belts next PPV, fulfilling Lopen's prize and hopefully cementing Parka as a key midcarder. Probably would've eventually dropped them to a heel turning Future Perfect (maybe they'd become the West Texas Rednecks and have the "rap is crap" thing against Atlas?)
-Jake was gonna get fired eventually for wellness, and thus I wasn't gonna put him in a title feud or long-term angle. But I still like the dude so he would've kept getting mostly-irrelevant-but-still-high-profile stuff.
-The Killer Bees were going to show up in a week or two.
-Might've eventually unified the NWA and WWF titles or done a brand split. Didn't have specific plans to get the belts off Flair or Ventura in the meantime. Flair especially might've wound up with a reign long enough for the Horsemen angle to happen in conjunction with a heel turn....or he might've just left for MACW to whom he had loyalty.
-Sting and Vampiro were in development, and some other guys that I don't remember.
-Would've kept trying to get Steamboat and Tenryu into the main event. Tenryu getting a shot at Flair next PPV would've helped.
-Maybe someday HBK and the Harts would've gotten over. Vader was doing okay.
