PROMOTER NOTES FOR 2135.
Just random thoughts on 2135 before 2136 arrives.
- Despite Cosmic Woman’s victory on the last card, The Crime Stoppers were a bust this year. Even with her title win, Cosmic Woman went about 50/50 for the year. Blue Dazzler had some moments but was a dud. Speedster as well. The biggest loser was Sunman who won one match the entire year. Says a lot when the most effective member was Buster! That said, I do like Skull for his uniqueness. He can stay. The rest can go.
- Great year for the stalwarts. GLADIATORS, Perfect Specimen, PREDATORS and, of course, Shayne. Sur finishing the year as IP champ was nice too. And in his reverted form, no less.
- Endgame was a bit of let down. Returned and reclaimed his current main even spot but never got the wins to make any waves..
- Godsend is fun for storylines but never makes any waves in the title scene. Shayne bested him all year.
- Played 2135 in less than a month! Never done that before, but then last year got crazy with gigs for me to get my results posted until now. Shout out to the super spy who sent me the new card backs from last year's GCon so I could get a head start on the year! Live play on the GWFPromoter YouTube Channel suffered due to a tech issue which has been fixed. Looking to try it again with 2136.
- Wrestlers I’m ready to see go: Fhanna, PSI, VAMPIRE LEGENDS (unless they get an upgrade), Lope, Dark Menace, Godsend (and the rest of the Godsends), Wolf, MEAN STREETS
- Wrestlers I hope get new cards: Tharkas (upgrade), CASTILEX (get rid of Moog’s no fatigue mechanic), Paralyze gets a proper manager card, Sur to get rid of his reversion mechanic, The Loyalist (only one with a record worse than Sunman), TERROR (upper mid card monster heel)
- Storylines I hope happen: Epoch turns on FDF and takes a leadership role on the villains team, Bex returns (Main event card), Giant Azuma returns or Kenji gets a proper tag team partner (interesting storyline would be Giant Azuma returning having dropped a ton of weight), Totalis finds a team and sticks to it.
- While I really enjoyed playing out this year, it seemed weird asking promoters to track Sudden Death points but then we don't send them in. Perhaps in the new book there'll be some sort of mechanic where our points will come into play. That'd be nice.
- All said and done, 2135 has been a classic of a year! Looking forward to 2136!

The show starts with Commissioner Massif welcoming the fans to 2136. He announces that it’s so good to be back in the Deimos Intergalactic Arena, he and the GWF Board of Directors have decided that the GALAXY’S FINEST™ will broadcast from Deimos THE WHOLE YEAR!
The crowd loves this.
He also announces that in addition to Aetrhan Overmaster getting his GALAXIAN CHAMPIONSHIP rematch tonight against Perfect Specimen, there will be an 8-man tournament to crown a new INTERPLANETARY CHAMPION.
Suddenly, Massif is bonked on the back of the head. Spinning around ready to face any attack, he sees that it is Murtak who has hit him with his flagpole. Murtak pushes past him and heads to the ring.
MURTAK: I demand a challenge worthy of the SUPREME CONQUEROR, Murtak the Merciless! No longer will I flounder in tag team matches. It is time for me to ascend to the GALAXIAN CHAMPIONSHIP where I belong! So send out my opponent.
Faller appears with Lord Nexus and the crowd goes nuts! Faller shakes hands all the way to the ring and climbs up in it ready to face Murtak.
MURTAK: Uh, no. No, no, no. When I said opponent, I did not me for it to be you. You may leave., thank you.
Faller smirks and shakes his head indicating he’s going nowhere.
MURTAK: Please send me a worthy opponent. Someone of proper size and stature.
There is a loud screeching and an air of panic races through the arena! THE BASILISK IS HERE!
The creature parts the audience as people scurry from. He smashes through the railing and climbs up into the ring. Murtak is hiding behind Faller. Suddenly, Murtak pushes Faller into The Basilisk and flees from the ring, tumbling through the ropes to the arena floor.
The ref rings the bell!
The Basilisk d. Faller via submission when Faller is no longer able to continue - ***** - The Basilisk is every bit as terrifying as we’ve heard. He simply destroys Faller beating him to a bloody pulp. The ref stopped the match when it was clear that Faller was not fighting back and The Basilisk just continued beating him instead of attempting a pin. Who can stop this creature?
INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT OPENING ROUND TITAN DEATH MATCH RULES Epoch d. Necros via pinfall after THE DARK AGE - *** - Great to get a look at Necros wrestling solo here. Epoch was able to put him away and advance to the next round. Commander Sam was a little perturbed at some unsportsmanlike conduct but was glad Epoch got the win.
INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT OPENING ROUND TITAN DEATH MATCH RULES Saber d. Totalis, the Tournament Master via pinfall after a springboard clothesline - ***** - What a debut for Saber! Totalis took him to the limit and he was able to toss the Tournament Master out of the tournament completely! This guy could go to the finals!
INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT OPENING ROUND TITAN DEATH MATCH RULES HelSin d. Burning man via pinfall after Stake to the Heart - ***1/2 - Big, come from behind, victory for HelSin! Burning Man dominated the match but choked in the final moments giving HelSin the opening to get the win. After the bell the two men shook hands to the cheers of the crowd.
INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT OPENING ROUND TITAN DEATH MATCH RULES Demon Godsend d. TERROR via pinfall after COVER OF DARKNESS - * - TERROR had the upper hand but after the action spilled to the outside, Demon Godsend used a chair behind the ref’s back to clobber TERRO and toss him back into the ring, setting him up for victory.
TITAN STAND d. CHAMELEON CREATURES via submission when Kenji makes Chameleon Creature Black Death submit to the KIMURA - * - It took the Titans a few minutes to wrap their head around their opponents but once they did, Kenji put Chameleon Creature Black Death away in a hurry. Perhaps the newcomers are still getting used to wrestling in this universe? Who knows? After the match, Overtime swore that he saw flashes of past wrestlers in the bodes of the Chameleon Creatures. It seemed to unnerve him a bit.
INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT SEMI-FINALS TITAN DEATH MATCH RULES Epoch d. Saber via pinfall after a missed deathjump - ***** - Another amazing match by Saber. He came out on the loosing end but is the most exciting wrestler THE GALAXY’S FINEST has seen in some time. Epoch advances but what a showing by Saber!
INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT SEMI-FINALS TITAN DEATH MATCH RULES HelSin d. Demon Godsend via pinball after BURIAL - *** - Solid match here by HelSin who seems to be hyper-focused on winning the whole tournament. He will move to the finals to face his teammate Epoch!
GWF WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP Cosmic Woman d. Lady Godsend via pinfall after a Cosmic Energy Burst - ***** - This was a hell of a match! At the final bell, neither wrestler could get on their feet! Cosmic Woman is successful in her first defense but this took everything she had. In a surprise, the crowd gave Lady Godsend a standing ovation at she left ringside.
INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH TITAN DEATH RULES Match is ruled a NO CONTEST when Epoch collapses and is unable to continue - ***** - Until the finish this was an exciting match. Both meant fighting with everything they had. The match was called when Epoch, advancing on HelSin, suddenly collapsed! HelSin rushed to the aid of his teammate and called for medics to attend to him. No winner, so we are still without an INTERPLANETARY CHAMPION, but it’ll be interesting to see how this develops.
GALAXIAN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP GLADIATORS d. FDF TRADITION via pinfall when Fist smashes Tank with ARMAMENT - *** - Good showing by FDF TRADITION but they were no match for theGLADIATORS who came to win.
GALAXIAN CHAMPIONSHIP Aetrhan Overmaster d. Perfect Specimen via pinfall after DOMINANCE - ***** - Perfect Specimen’s first GALAXIAN CHAMPIONSHIP reign comes crashing down as Aethran Overmaster reclaims the title! Perfect Specimen was on defense the whole match and just tried to survive the onslaught of Aetrhan Overmaster.
Aethran Overmaster is the new GALAXIAN CHAMPION.
After the bell, Overmaster tossed Perfect Specimen out of the ring to Lord Nexus and stood tall with the title. He was soon joined by the GLADIATORS and Paralyze. The Aethrans make a big statement to start 2136 as we…
