Alright. For what few people are interested after the last debacle months ago, or new people who are not aware of a debacle a few months ago, I want to give this another try.

For the uninitiated (why did you click this topic with that title) TEW 2016 is a wrestling promotion simulator where you control the match results and storylines and stuff. I'll be using a current real world database for it.

I'll be controlling WWE, and will be putting some restrictions on myself to prevent it from veering too far off WWE's product.

- I will only be hiring people to work as managers/non-wrestling positions, aside from very limited midcarder filler and possible prizes, and who WWE themselves hire
- I will avoid using special attraction guys like Brock Lesnar or Undertaker more than you'd expect to see them on the real show.
- I'm going to try to sync my PPV dates with WWE's even if that means I have to rush some storylines along to do that.

The ideal is I'll be simultaneously be releasing shows at the same time as WWE-- same night, anyway. We'll see how far I can diverge from what WWE is giving us using the same wrestlers, and how quickly I can tank the product.

Now assuming you haven't run away yet, let me tell you why you should actually maybe care about this. There are some differences from the last time that I hope will make it easier for me to keep with it this time.

- Other than contract based realism, I will be going full insanity mode here, so don't expect this to have any remote pretense of realism otherwise (I do hope it will still be coherent, however)
- I won't be holding myself to WWE's injuries and firings and whatnot, as who's to say whether those would still occur in this alternate timeline anyway. It was too obnoxious to keep up with last time. That being said guys can be injured and such in my game world independent of the real world so there will still be some unexpected changes needing to be made.
- Most importantly I'm starting with Wrestlemania as Wrestlemania happens, so I'm not starting in a 3 month hole. Should help a lot!
- Wrestlemania is in theory a clean place to end a lot of storylines so I have less baggage to keep around as far as needing to wrap up stories.

Can I make a product even worse than what the real WWE puts out? I sure hope so! I might also be going to ask for some collective input from anyone bothering to read before I start and do a prediction thing right away (though this won't occur every show, Wrestlemania deserves one). So stay tuned.

Top predictor gets one of the following prizes of their choice to be PMed to me. Second place gets one of the remaining choices after first place picked one. In addition, everyone gets a participation prize of choosing one person

1. An additional authority figure is going to be introduced soon for some reason. You may pick someone to be the authority figure. It can be a new hire, someone currently on the roster, or someone from NXT.
2. You may force me to hire anyone in a managerial role. You can name one of their clients.
3. You may force hire anyone as a lower midcarder "just happy to be here" type filler worker.
4. You may force me to assemble a tag or trio team with the wrestlers of your choice.
5. You may force me to give a lower midcarder a storyline or gimmick of some sort. Pitch an idea too if you want to help inspire me. I'll probably work with you if I don't totally hate it.
6. You may force an NXT callup immediately. They will get a title shot against someone of my choice next PPV.

I hope you win by default Tom that'd be awesome.

Deadline for prediction is when I post the write-up in any case, which will be sometime this Sunday. I imagine it'll be before Wrestlemania but it might be just after it.

Side question should I abandon the Cruiserweights cause I don't watch 205 Live and WWE seems to have abandoned the idea of using them on Raw, or should I just go total freestyle with it and ignore any established characters they have.

I'm not even sure this is a matter of voting to be honest

I heard 205 was good now maybe I should just watch it

Wrestlemania XXXIV

Pre-Show:

We start the match with the cruiserweight title finals, Cedric Alexander Wins (40)

Shane and Kurt are backstage arguing about which title match should main event. Kurt says they're both main events-- Shane says one is placed in the middle of the show, let's be real. They agree to a wager-- whichever's side show wins the Andre Memorial will main event (83)

Andre Memorial has 30 guys. A bunch of joke buffoonery as most of the entries are silly in one way or another. All the "big" names are out early, and we're left with Heath Slater, Breezango, Konnor, Primo Colon... and Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler looks around in a "what am I doing with my life" kind of way as the jokes brawl it out-- Ziggler tosses everyone out in short order, shoulders the Andre statue and walks out, visibly underwhelmed by the thing. (55)

John Cena cuts a short promo, saying he hasn't seen Taker, but he's sure he'll do the right thing (100)

The women's battle royal is next. This one is only 20, and we need literally every woman on staff as well as surprise entrants Gail Kim, Kairi Sane, Billy Kay and Jillian Hall to fill it out. Final five are Kairi Sane, Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, Sasha, and Bayley. Bayley dumps out Sasha. Sasha takes it well, and offers Bayley a handshake out of respect from the outside. Dumb Bayley accepts it-- Sasha goes Hogan 1992 on her and tries to yank her out. Liv Morgan opportunistically helps Bayley out of the ring-- then runs over to Ruby Riott and Kairi Sane who are tied up in the ropes and dumps Kairi out of the ring, accidentally(?) getting Ruby in the process. Liv Morgan wins! (51)

Main Show:

We open with the US Title 4 Way. Rusev comes out victorious, much Rusev Day chants being had. Aiden English celebrates like they both won and they both hold the title up. (74)

The Usos vs New Day (Kofi + Woods) vs Bludgeon Brothers. Bludgeons dominate most of the match, but The Usos exploit the triangle match rules to capitalize on them demolishing Woods just long enough for Jimmy Uso to steal the pin on Woods to retain. (59)

Charlotte Flair vs Asuka. Charlotte provides THE STRONGEST CHALLENGE TO ASUKA TO DATE(?) but uhh she loses because no one is ready for Asuka or somethin. (63) Asuka is visibly tired after the grueling match... just then... F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S. Carmella runs to the ring with her MitB! But... Asuka is on her feet recovered by the time she reaches it. Carmella drops her briefcase, goes into the ring, and shakes Asuka's hand shouting "I knew you could do it! I never liked Charlotte!" She raises Asuka's hand in victory, as Asuka has a laugh and plays along. (76)

Backstage John Cena is moping... Curt Hawkins, still wearing his "pick me Braun" shirt, says Cena needs to FACE THE FACTS, and accept that neither of them are going to have a match tonight! John Cena laughs a bit, then his face turns serious, and he throws Curt Hawkins through a wall. We cut to the ring for the Bar's entrance we cut backstage to a Braun Strowman who still has no partner... he passes by Curt Hawkins's fallen body. Picks him up and carries him to the ring.(83)

Braun places Curt's unconscious body on the ring apron, and says "ring the bell!" Braun holds the initial advantage, but the Bar slowly takes control as not even Braun can take them 1v2. Meanwhile, Curt Hawkins is slowly recovering the entire match. He eventually gets well enough to tag, makes a blind tag on Braun, and hits Sheamus who is fully focused on Braun with an inside cradle. 1. 2. 3! Hawkins and Strowman win! Hawkins, overjoyed, celebrates big! He hands Strowman his title and shouts "THE STREAK IS OVER!" pissed off Strowman powerslams him, but carries him and the belts back.(79)

Nia Jax d. Alexa Bliss to become the new raw women's champion in a squash. (51) F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! Carmella starts to strut out with her MitB... glances towards the ring... sees a completely undamaged Nia... moonwalks out (59) Backstage, Angle and Shane are still hanging out, and Angle is like 'hey, can she even do that?' and Shane 'uhhh I dunno that was months ago I'll have to look into it later I have a match now' (88)

Shane and Bryan vs KO and Zayn. It's a HOT BLOODED BRAWL-- but late in the match, Shane McMahon BAH GAWD THAT MONSTER tosses Bryan up to the wolves. It's a 2v1. BOO! Bryan valiantly fights em off lasting for a few minutes, but eventually it's too much for him. KO wins after the Helluva Kick into Pop Up Powerbomb combo. (79) KO and Sami destroy Daniel Bryan with the chair guillotine-- Shane goes to shake their hand... they fake getting along with him, then destroy him too! They stand triumphant over both! (86)

Angle and Stephanie vs Kurt and Ronda. A mercifully short match where almost immediately Ronda beats the hell out of Stephanie, and is DQed for kicking too much ass as she does not respect the rope break. She apparently breaks Stephanie's arm!?!? Pissed off Triple H gets his Sledgehammer to help Steph... Kurt steps in, he is whacked with the sledgehammer. As Triple H is focused on Kurt, Ronda takes down Triple H. Refs break it up, as Stephanie and Kurt are stretchered out and Triple H does his best mad face. (68)

Roman Reigns vs Lesnar. Lesnar takes most of the match-- Roman does not really look in his league quite frankly, now more than ever. Lesnar gets overconfident and Roman Reigns wins with a small package of all things. Roman is the new champion! DA BIG DAWG! (74) Brock does not take this well. He heads out of the ring, grabs a chair, beats a Roman who can barely stand repeatedly. Just then... F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S. Carmella appears! She... is cashing in her money in the bank!? Brock stops his beating with the chair, laughs uproariously. The referee is confused, but says to ring the bell. (86) Carmella pins Roman Reigns immediately. Carmella is the new Universal Champion bah gawd!!! Brock cannot stop laughing, and raises her hand in victory. (61)

The Miz vs Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor. These guys steal the show with an incredible match. Miz in a shocker actually wins clean with a skull crushing finale on Seth Rollins.(88)

John Cena is out one more time. He pleads with the Undertaker to show up doing the usual spiel we've seen every week in this feud. Just then... GONG... the lights go out, a hooded figure starts to walk out.
Then suddenly, the lights abruptly come on. Ziggler is behind Cena with the Andre Memorial. He brutally assaults him with it, breaking the trophy in the process and shouting about how Cena is not entitled to a Wrestlemania match! He walks out... Cena struggles to his feet, challenges Ziggler to a match. Ziggler says he refuses, because he's sure Cena is no longer cleared after that beating, and because he doesn't want Cena to get his Wrestlemania match. He calls out the medical staff, they concur with his assessment. (100)

AJ Styles vs Nakamura in the main event. Just a straight up good match where the story is Nakamura teasing the Kinshasa (KNEE. TO. FACE.) a lot, with a lot of "this close" mind games. AJ acts intimidated at first, but as the match goes on it seems it was a show and he has it figured out as he consistently rolls through it with a calf crusher over and over. Nakamura tries a new approach eventually, but is ultimately unable to adapt to this, as his overconfident in his knee is his doom and AJ wins.(84)

Show Rating: 86

I'll do the point totals later, but feel free to comb through to figure out if you won!

Alright let's see.

With realWrestlemania over, one I'm still on the fence as to whether I truly succeeded in booking a worse show for, I can now tally up totals.

Tom - Owens+Zayn, Usos, Miz, Rusev, Braun, Nia, Cedric, NO, 1 18
Dante - Roman, AJ, Usos, Rusev, Braun, 1, Hawkins, No 18
Eddv - AJ, KO, Miz, Liv, No, 1, 8 matches different 16
CPU - Roman, KO, Asuka, Usos, Miz, Braun, Nia, No, 1 19

Total differences - Brock, Kurt, KO, Asuka, Usos, Miz, Rusev, Dolph, Liv - 9

Wow. Pretty close predictions.

@IhatethisCPU gets first place.
@Tom_Bombadil and @X_Dante_X tied for second.
@Eddv gets last

Screw it. To resolve the tie easier, and because I didn't get many predictions. I'm giving you all a pick from the above list on post 3. CPU gets first pick. Because Dante and Tom tied, their picks will resolve at the same time, meaning if they both happen to pick the same choice, we may get double dipping on an option!

So if you want it to resolve most quickly, CPU send me one pick, Tom and Dante send me two picks (the second being an alternate if CPU picks your first) and Eddv send me four picks

OR if you don't want to think of that many picks we can just wait for people to do their stuff in order. I'll post the taken options as I receive picks.

It'll definitely be difficult. I'm hoping as long as I keep on top of it it won't be too bad though-- I'm really bad with backlogs. Booking a single show takes like an hour of time if I have what I want to do with it fairly well planned out-- bit longer otherwise, but in those kind of chunks it remains manageable.

To be fair I meant an hour to do the booking + write-up combined. Unless you meant half an hour to do the booking + write-up combined in which case I guess I'm just bad at this.

And now Tom and Dante chose literally the exact same thing so I guess it's fitting they tied. It seems almost like a ripoff. Obviously I'll just superpower the pick, somehow.

@Eddv Authority Figure and NXT Callup are both off the list. So choose one of the other 4 whenever.

Got to thinking about it

I think Dante should get another pick, because he's being punished for doing well here since Tom would've normally zoned him out of the pick.

And because it was kind of a wasted pick for both of you ANYWAY I'm going to give Tom his secondary pick as well.

NXT call up still off the table though

Dante's first pick was an authority figure, which was taken by you

His second pick was an NXT callup, which had overlap with Tom, which further had overlap with what I was probably going to do anyway so I gave Dante another pick and Tom his backup pick rather than have them both sink their pick into the same thing

Alright all picks are in. Not that I was waiting for them to post the show or anything since most of them involve hires which has a 1 week lag but you know.

Thanks for playing everyone. I'll do another one of these at some point later but I'm not doing the "predict every show" thing. Show later tonight.

It's still Monday in Hawaii, which is where this Raw is being shown in front of. It's fair.

Monday Night Raw

Roman Reigns starts the show, complaining about how Carmella's contract can't be used to cash in on his title. He calls out Kurt Angle to rectify this. F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S interrupts him-- she asks him if he's actually stupid enough to think a guy who got his head smashed with a sledgehammer would be here tonight, then she says she knows he's an idiot because he doesn't know how Money in the Bank works. She didn't do anything the contract didn't say she could, and if Roman wants a rematch he can have it ANY TIME-- after tonight-- since she's not even sure she should be here since she's a Smackdown talent, and she leaves. Roman starts to call out Triple H instead-- Miz interrupts him, says if he wants a title shot he can have one against him for the hands down most prestigious title on Raw, tonight. He'll even leave the Miztourage backstage, since he's sure he can handle a guy who lost to Carmella of all people-- Carmella who is passing him, gets all up in Miz's face for this, but Roman accepts the match. (86)

We see Matt Hardy walking backstage... he says... AH KNEW YOU'D COME. We pan over to Jeff Hardy, who is... just normal Jeff Hardy despite his appearance in The Ultimate Deletion. He deadpans a "hey Matt" like nothing's wrong. Matt then shouts at the nearby Dash of Wilds and Daw's Son, saying they must battle immediately to finalize the REVIVAL of the Hardy Boyz. (75) The Hardy Boyz vs The Revival. Jeff tries the usual Hardy Boyz tandem offense-- Matt's wackiness isn't quite gelling with it right but it works well enough to get the win. (70)

Backstage, Alexa approaches Sasha Banks, says Sasha should really try to turn around her fortunes in last night's Battle Royal by giving Nia Jax a sound thrashing! Sasha considers it, as Bayley enters the frame... Alexa starts to give her the exact same pitch but is cut off by Bayley screaming a warcry and Sasha and Bayley brawling with one another. Sasha throws her hands up and walks away as they continue to fight (76)

The Bar d. Slater and Rhyno (70) Backstage, Triple H arrives at the arena, obviously distraught. Curt Hawkins sees him. Curt Hawkins is a dick. He says Triple H should FACE THE FACTS-- he lost last night! H doesn't take this well, and does the mad Triple H face and says MY WIFE IS CRIPPLED as he begins to assault Hawkins. He pulls out his sledgehammer-- Braun Strowman flies into the frame shouting that that's his tag team partner and yeti mauls him. He carries him atop the limo, then dunks Triple H into the Limo's Sunroof. Then tips over the Limo. The mightily struggles and pushes it over a ledge. It falls about 10 feet-- BAH GAWD THERE'S A HUMAN BEING IN THERE. WHO IS LEFT TO RUN RAW NOW!?! (98)

Kane doesn't care if no one is here to run Raw, he just wants to hurt people. Apollo answers the call. (74) Kane d. Apollo (56)

Alexa Bliss continues her quest to get someone to fight Nia, muttering to herself about where Mickie is. She tries to convince absolution. Before she can get far, screaming Alicia Fox shouts about how it's payback time(??)... the three brawl! Alexa sighs and walks away (58)

Elias is out to do his spiel. Who wants to Walk With Elias? Well, new Cruiserweight champion Cedric Alexander, who says the Cruiserweight division is coming back to Raw, and he'll kick as much time wasting ass as he needs to to make it happen. (65) Cedric Alexander's quick offense catches Elias before he can really get set, and he manages to get the upset win (52)

Alexa approaches Dana Brooke. She's sure to clarify that Dana has no enemies first and that they can talk civilly. Dana nods. Alexa successfully psyches Dana into fighting Nia Jax without much selling needed. (54) Nia Jax d. Dana Brooke in a squash. Alexa Bliss goes in for the post match attack, but Nia isn't even winded, so Alexa shrieks and runs away instead. (50)

Rollins and Balor are backstage discussing the match. Balor chastises Rollins for losing to Miz tripping over his feet and falling forward with Rollins. Rollins corrects him, that he's pretty sure that he lost to Miz's Skull Crushing Finale. Balor insists that's what he just said. Miztourage come in to mock them and extol Miz's virtues. Rollins and Balor challenge them to a match and the Miztourage accept. (76) Rollins and Balor d. The Miztourage. Axel and Bo last longer than you'd expect but the match isn't really ever in doubt. (79)

Miz vs Roman. The Miztourage are not present, but Miz uses a combination of cheating and scouting Roman to keep it competitive. Miz stuffs some sort of object in the middle turnbuckle pad early and constantly-- eventually Roman spears that turnbuckle, then Miz rolls him up and grabs the tights to win. (78)

Miz gloats about how he doesn't need to hit Roman with 12 finishers to beat him because he's smart and he'll always be one step ahead of DA BIG DAWG. Miz leaves. Roman who wasn't down long, gets the mic, and to an avalanche of boos from that wacky post mania crowd goes into some monologue about he's going to get that Universal Championship back if it's the last thing he does... BUHLEE-- out of nowhere, Samoa Joe blindside attacks him! He gets him in the Kokina Clutch... Roman struggles and struggles, but eventually is choked out. (75) Samoa Joe in a frothing rage, cuts a promo, saying as long as he is here, this punk ass fake Samoan disgrace Roman will NEVER get a title shot again. NEVER. BELIEVE THAT. He drops the mic on the unconscious Roman to raucous cheers from the crowd as we fade to black (89)

Show Rating - 85

Random story the only reason I booked Triple H and Stephanie to win by DQ is because they used their CREATIVE CONTROL (that I foolishly did not remove for those two for "realism") to block Kurt and Ronda winning

Just thought that should be clarified before I forget

I still think it's accurate to give it to them-- Ronda's starting popularity is probably too low or Steph's is too high is the problem.

Also it's a stealth bump to clarify I did not fail the mission 2 days in

Smackdown Live! From Puerto Rico!

Carmella starts the show, giving herself a pat on the back for becoming the new champion. Randy Orton interrupts, comes in the ring, and while cornering her says that while she holds that... he can't be responsible, for what he is forced to do... woman or man, he'll show... no mercy. He corners her a bit more aggressively to the point where this becomes a bit uncomfortable. AJ Styles comes out, tells Orton to chill a bit. He has no love for Carmella either-- she used to hang out with that clown Ellsworth after all-- and won't take it easy on her if they get a match, but there's no need to go quite so intense either. Orton still intense, is calmed down a bit and he and AJ both leave. (82)

Renee Young comes out, says that with both Shane and Daniel Bryan out of action and no other matchmakers present this show is going to be a bit freestyle tonight, but asks who Carmella would like to face as her first opponent for the title, if it were all up for her. Carmella thinks a bit-- she thinks Sin Cara is a real bang up guy and a great wrestler, and she'd be honored to face him first. Sin Cara, long thought to be gone, comes out and ~POINTS !!~ at Carmella. Carmella is like "oh you want some right now? WELL I CAN'T MAKE A TITLE MATCH BUT YOU'RE ON." (56) Sin Cara vs Carmella. Cara starts slow and "gentlemanly", hits some armdrags. Well under control. Carmella knocks him off balance and he stumbles into the ref-- she kicks him square in the balls as the ref is stumbling around, then small packages him for the win. She does an over the top celebration. (56)

Primo and Epico Colon are backstage standing in front of a random door, trying to sell Breezango some tickets to Puerto Rico. Breeze shows interest but Fandango tells him to not be so eager, as they are already at Puerto Rico. Rusev then blows through the door, bowling over the Colons, shouting RUSEV DAY!!!! RUSEV DAY!!!!! and parading with his newly won US Title, totally oblivious. Breezango try to give them some fashionable orange safety jackets for their own protection-- the Colons are livid about this mockery and challenge them to a match! (70) Breezango d. The Colons (44)

Owens and Zayn are in the ring... they launch into a story explaining the events this past Wrestlemania. Shane had come to them after Bryan made the challenge for the tag match at mania, that challenge being after Shane was brutally mauled by Owens and Zayn. Shane told them he'd wished Bryan had just fired them properly, but making a tag challenge when Shane was not only assaulted, but also bedridden with diverticulitis... it was total garbage. Shane now looks like a coward if he doesn't fight, but he shouldn't have to fight when he's this beat up. He has a wife, he has kids. He still doesn't like Owens and Zayn, but wants Bryan to pay for putting his livelihood at risk with this reckless matchmaking, and will gladly allow Owens and Zayn to win and get their jobs back by staying out of the match if they just take it easy on him. So they "took him up on the deal." Then, when the match came, well, it was a nice thought, but KO and Sami Zayn still hated Shane's guts, so they beat the hell out of him anyway. And NEITHER ONE OF EM ARE COMING BACK. EVER. WE RUN THIS PLACE NOW!

Orton interrupts em saying he's sick of this yapping, that he's been ending careers for 15 years now, and that he's going to punt some skulls to show them who really runs this show... then AJ comes out as well to denounce Owens and Zayn, and a tag challenge is made for tonight! (86)

Asuka vs Natalya, unofficially for the SD Women's title. Natalya looks uncharacteristically driven here, perhaps finding some appeal in trying to end the streak, but falls nonetheless in a hard fought match. Asuka gives Natalya some props after the match, however. (73)

Bobby Roode is in the ring, he calls out Rusev, saying he wants a proper 1v1 for the title, as a gift for this most sacred of holidays, Rusev Day. Rusev barges down the ramp from the backstage area with a mic. "RUSEV TURNS DOWN NO CHALLENGES ON RUSEV DAY!" Aiden English following him, tries to calm him down a bit, insisting Rusev must be a bit fatigued after that grueling match... Rusev will have none of this calmness! He storms to the ring. (86) Informal US Title match. Competitive throughout, about 10 minutes in Roode begins to show some command of the match, threatening to hit his finisher-- Aiden English cuts off his momentum with a US Title shot to the back of the head. Roode wins by DQ.(72) Aiden puts the boots to Roode-- Rusev stops his attacks, shouts at him for costing him the match. Aiden apologizes, Rusev nods, they head to the back (80)

Owens and Zayn vs AJ Styles and Randy Orton. Orton gets upset mid match when AJ Styles (tactically, not dickishly) tags himself in when Orton is whipped into the ropes. Orton bails on the match. AJ's like "what the hell, man?" as this clearly seems an overreaction. He fights valiantly against Owens and Zayn, lasting a good 10 minutes in a handicap match, but eventually can't keep going. KO and Zayn win.(78)

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn continue with the momentum from their win after a beatdown on AJ Styles, and begin to literally tear the building down. They roam through the backstage area, start destroying random pieces of the set, wrecking wrestlers they encounter. They beat down the New Day, beat down Bobby Roode, beat down Shinsuke Nakamura, and continue their warpath as we fade to black (78)

Show Rating - 80. Increased popularity in 18 regions.
