WWE King of the Ring 2018

Pre-Show: Rhyno d. Big Cass in a squash. Slater is not accompanying him, but who cares, he won. (54)

Showtime

We start the show hot with the Braun Strowman invitational. As promised, it's basically a Strowman monster truck rally for the first 10 minutes. However, in the last 5, Zayn and Owens start to wear Strowman down as he's been clobbering people for quite some time. They get a pretty good advantage, laying him out with a chair assault, but Daniel Bryan returns, fighting them off. Eventually by some stupid happening, Bryan is suplexed onto Strowman who has at last finally been thoroughly battered by a billion people who threw him through 2 tables or some sorta outrageous thing, and in the chaos amongst themselves to fight to take down Strowman, no one breaks up the pin. Daniel Bryan is the new unwitting Intercontinental Champion! (79)

Disco Inferno approaches Jose backstage, giving him a pep talk, saying that he should rebrand himself... get this... "No Way" Jose. It's great, right?! Jose says he's been trying to say that this whole ti-- Disco cuts him off, insists Jose can thank him later. Jose rolls his eyes and leaves (53) Baron Corbin d. No Way Jose in a squash. (56)

Harper vs Sheamus. The match can hardly begin as Rowan and Cesaro get involved. They are both disqualified (57)

Nakamura vs Lashley. A competitive well fought match but Nakamura wins. (80) Lashley is a sore loser. Also the AoP get sent out for some reason. Nakamura is completely demolished by the three and stretchered out. (90)

McIntyre vs Slater. Slater hits the flash roll up almost as the match begins for the 3. (58) Rhyno comes out to congratulate him. RHYNO GORES HIM. HE GORES HIM AGAIN. HE CUTS AN ANGRY PROMO ABOUT HOW SLATER ABANDONED RHYNO AS HE WAS RELEGATED TO THE PRE-SHOW. RHYNO GORES HIM AGAIN. SLATER IS BROKEN IN HALF. HE HAS KIDS. Slater is stretchered out. (77)

We see a graphic of the bracket, between a double DQ and two injruies... only Baron Corbin remains. Corbin hits the ring, laughs it up, demands his crown. Kairi Sane comes out with the King's scepter, crown, and cape as some found plunder, with Russo in tow. Before Baron can ask what the hell she's wearing that for, Russo calls Corbin a piece of garbage, and that the King of the Ring is too sacred to not have a MATCH to decide it. Corbin says Kairi can step right up-- he's beaten her already. Russo says no, bro, HE'LL step up. Corbin laughs this up. He accepts the challenge! The bell rings! (68) The match is about to start, suddenly the screen scrambles with a JUT in a Bray Wyatt effect as the lights go out! When the lights come back, Corbin is down, with Bray sitting atop the corner turnbuckle, with a bucket of chicken necks. Russo makes the cover... 1... 2... 3! Vince Russo is the King of the Ring! (44)

Christopher Daniels comes out and says this is too stupid. Russo says Daniels can deal with it... unless he wants to put up the position of Smackdown GM against the King of the Ring! Daniels adds the stipulation that if the lights go out, Daniels wins by DQ. Russo accepts, and Daniels is super hyped to actually wrestle, even if it is Russo, but then EC3 interjects. EC3 says he'll be fighting in Daniels's place, since Daniels is not allowed to wrestle by contract. Daniels is livid! (79)

EC3 vs Vince Russo. EC3 dominates early, bumping Russo around, but then Daniels, clearly still annoyed, exercises his power as Smackdown GM and says the match is now no DQ, and he assaults EC3. Best Moonsault Ever onto EC3, Russo gets the pin. Vince Russo d. EC3 and is now the GM of Smackdown! (50)

Vince Russo calls out MVP, says it's time... Raw vs Smackdown, for all the marbles, winner owns both shows! MVP comes out, says Russo is on. (79) MVP vs Russo. The lights go out! They come back on, and Bray is back on the turnbuckle eating chicken necks, distracting the referee as the AoP slide into the ring to beat Bray up! In the chaos, Jeff "the chosen one" Hardy, wearing a "slap nuts" shirt and toting a guitar, slides in the ring behind MVP, and hits MVP with a guitar shot! The AoP still occupied with Bray do not interfere, Russo gets the pin! Russo controls both shows, and is the King of the Ring! (45)

RUSSO summons all the champions to the ring. ALL TITLES ARE VACATED. And three elimination chamber matches will be held. TONIGHT. For the WWE Undisputed Title. For the WWE Universal Title. For the WWE Tag Titles.(81)

Tag Chamber. Building Momentum vs Usos vs The Bar vs Bludgeon Bros vs The IIconics vs Rollins and Balor. The chambers are overfilled, so each chamber has a pole above it that one tag member is tied to that the tag member in the chamber must free their partner from. The Usos eventually win. (73)

Daniels hits up Russo's office, requests a match, because this may be his last chance. Russo says he likes Daniels, and will put him in the Universal Title chamber. Daniels fist pumps. (73)

Universal Title Chamber. Alexa Bliss vs Becky Lynch vs Roman Reigns vs Asuka vs MVP vs Christopher Daniels. Alexa Bliss begs off Roman early not wanting to be in this match :(. Roman ain't having it, Superman punch! Destroys her before the next chamber opens. Becky puts up a much better fight and lasts until Daniels gets in. Daniels is next, and proves to be formidable, with a mostly alliance with Becky lasting until MVP enters. MVP is next and they 3v1 Roman a bit. Roman OVERCOMES THE ODDS and takes them all out just before the last entrant Asuka enters. Roman is now fatigued, and Asuka has a strategy of repeatedly baiting and countering Superman Punches, which works very well. Asuka exploits one in a big way and taps Roman out. Taps him out!?! BIG DOG NEVER QUITS?!(71)

Kairi Sane is in Russo's office, she shouts VACATED?!?!, clutching the Andre the Giant Memorial. Russo says it is vacated, but he's got her back, and offers to put her in the undisputed title match TONIGHT. (63)

Undisputed Title Chamber. AJ Styles vs Samoa Joe vs Braun Strowman vs Kevin Owens vs Kairi Sane vs Jeff "the chosen one" Hardy. A chaotic match. Jeff "the chosen one" Hardy wins over Kairi Sane with The Stroke. Jeff "the chosen one" Hardy is the Undisputed Champion. (82)

Jeff is celebrating as the lights go out... we hear boom over the sound system... a familiar voice... "BROTHER NERO... WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!?!" The lights go on, Matt Hardy appears... he says the truth will be revealed... hahahahaha... HAHAHAHA... R-Truth hits the ring and assaults Jeff Hardy! As the assault continues, Matt Hardy launches into a diatribe about how the WWE shall soon perish as the obsolete mule it is... as we fade to black (83)

Show rating - 79 Kairi Sane overused. BUT NOT RUSSO NANI? (Russo gained 15 overness from this show)

Rhyno's Bitter Veteran gimmick got a rating of very good, and his turn was a complete success
Daniel Bryan's machine gimmick got a rating of very good
Bray Wyatt's chicken eating badass gimmick got a rating of great
Jeff Hardy's "chosen one" gimmick got a rating of very good and his turn was a complete success (which is weird because the game said the gimmick was too subtle for our audience and that Jeff Hardy shouldn't turn again yet)
Matt Hardy's "broken" gimmick got a rating of very good

And the WWE went out of business the next day. Good night everybody!

I just figured, the dream was dead, so might as well execute it before 500. This was a good out. There are a few reasons for this, and I think it's because fundamentally this type of project is doomed to fail and I'll not try one of this specific flavor again. I got to thinking about it and there are a lot of reasons.

1. I somewhat dislike current WWE, so it's hard to get too behind their roster as it stands. Nothing on the guys, but it's just difficult. Also because I dislike WWE, there's very little sense of accomplishment in writing a show I find more entertaining than theirs with their guys.

Combined with.

1a. Believe or not, I do like storylines and character evolution to make sense even if I'm being an idiot. So it's really hard to get the roster to a point where I'm excited to book shows by using WWE's base. It takes a long time to shake the WWE roster into a spot I want it to be. I'm still not nearly there. This last show was probably my favorite to book because it was the furthest removed from WWE's style due to just going 2000 WCW on it.

2. WWE in general is annoying to book because the roster is so bloated. I did have an idea to solve this to some extent by bringing in trios as a major fixture of the show and being able to condense a lot of guys by throwing em in 3s, but yeah, I was overly ambitious and wanted to do it in a way that wasn't just "hey there's a Trios Title" so the idea was Raw would get one because both tag titles were on Smackdown. Eventually we'd unify the tag titles

3. Now when I was actually running in parallel with the real thing, it was okay, but as I fell further behind we had an issue of unfair future sight hurting my enthusiasm. Like, for instance, I was pushing Owens and Zayn to the moon and then they're both out with injuries right now, so it's like, how can I really feel enthused about it. I had a long running storyline for Roman Reigns planned, that actually did NOT involve a heel turn, but I lost some enthusiasm to do it when the dude was revealed to have literal cancer. Things like that.

So we probably won't see another attempt at a TEW topic from me till 1006verse comes out. I think booking WWE is just not something I find enjoyable and I don't really want to make a fed that is indierama we have enough of those on b8 right now.

Now all that being said I did have some ideas I was building towards... I'll reveal them before this topic fills up, maybe, since we'll never see em otherwise anyway.

Some ideas I was building to that will remain dead

Seth Rollins heel turn, having the Evil Architects Bill Dingh and Prince IKEA as his two J&J style lackeys. Cause you know, he's the architect. Eventually wins the title, becomes self aware Brock Lesnar completely bailing on the show and only appearing via satellite after Braun Strowman wins Money in the Bank at Summerslam. Build of Strowman hunting Seth down at places that aren't arenas to cash in his MitB.

Pete Dunne (or whoever was chosen by the KotR winner) showing up, blowing up Cedric Alexander, and going on a crusade to "convert" the guys who don't fight in the cruiserweight division but are of the proper weight like Finn Balor and Sami Zayn in an attempt to elevate the cruiserweight title.

Roman Reigns continuing to lose more and more until he eventually hits rock bottom and loses to Curt Hawkins in a match where if he loses he has to become Curt's servant for 3 months. Zack Ryder as Hawkins's tag partner suggests he be branded Broman Reigns and help them get the trios title. Roman hates this as they initially feud with Robbie E who claims they stole his thing, but eventually grows into accepting it and badasses out and they eventually win the trios titles. Idea being that maybe if Roman really hit rock bottom, then reinvented to a more stoic badass and reascended with a couple of lovable losers, people might accept him.

Daniel Bryan winning the IC Title, completely coatracking it for several months as he would be focused on feuds for the World Title, causing Miz to challenge him for it repeatedly but be ignored. Eventually Miz would win the Royal Rumble by last eliminating Daniel Bryan, and as his prize have a Mania match for the IC Title against Bryan rather than a world title shot. Build to Mania would have Miz/Bryan winning matches against the World Champions/#1 contenders to make the IC Title main event. Eventually we'd have a DOUBLE TURN~ at Mania since Daniel Bryan kinda would be overly disrespectful to Miz. Would help grease this by bringing Mizdow back as Miz's manager for his special entrance, but having Bryan wreck him during the match.

Bray Wyatt would emerge from the lake of reincarnation acting like Jeff Hardy claiming to be a VESSEL and teaming with Matt, and then later Jeff would himself emerge acting like Bray. I'm not really sure where I was going after this but I just wanted them as a trio and the imagery of the guys trying to do the other's gimmick was amusing to me.

Lots of trios organically forming: McIntyre + Ziggler + Rhyno as bitter veterans. Lashley + AOP as MVP's hit squad. Hardyz + Bray. American Alpha + Shelton Benjamin, you know, if Jason Jordan ever came back to wrestling. Edgeheads + Roman. Balor + The Club. Titus + Apollo + Tozawa. Slater attempts to make a new 3MB with him + Jinder + Elias to feud with Rhyno's group. Stuff like this.

When Rusev/Orton is winding down, Aiden English returns and feuds with Orton directly to get redemption for being killed, and holds his own, making Aiden/Rusev have a bit more parity as a relationship rather than just being Rusev's cheerleader.

End goal is to have vastly different power scaling on each division for each guy, but make everyone legit in at least one division. Like The New Day would be very good in the trio division, but also used as singles guys where they win less. Meanwhile say Seth Rollins + the architects as a trio would lose more, despite Rollins being strong as a singles guy.

I had a lot of other ideas but these are the big ones I kinda regret not doing. But it was just a bit too glacial to get there and I was too far behind.
