A second fed intended to help round out my pre-2087 history.
It is set in 2083 and takes place in the same continuity as my Early Classics fed, the D.W.F.
This fed will primarily feature official GWF talent to start, but over time will incorporate more and more fan-made wrestlers.
It’s the Summer of 2083 and Pro-Wrestling is the hottest ticket in the galaxy!
The Deimos Wrestling Federation, founded in late 2073 by Omega of Cetus and Morpheus (just months after the GALACTIC WARS came to an end) currently leads the pack of in an ever-growing field of pro-wrestling leagues and circuits.
The Eastern Sector of the galaxy infamously remained independent from the UNITED FEDERATION of STARS & PLANETS governance after the war. That independence has meant, for the last decade, as pro wrestling has seen a resurgence in popularity and acceptance across the galaxy, sports fans in the Eastern Sectors have yet to see many of the live pro wrestling events that are now held each year in person as The Eastern-System’s official Sanctioning and Governing body kept pro wrestling and similar violent combat sports illegal.
That is until just a year ago when the commission laxed its rules on Professional Wrestling, opening the way for new leagues and circuits to be born in that region of the galaxy. The two men instrumental in that change are brothers, Jonny and Carlos V, young entrepreneurs who made their fortune in the 2060’s and 2070’s in the media business.
Hoping to eventually compete with heavyweights like the D.W.F, Jonny & Carlos brought in former D.W.F All-Systems Champions, Morpheus and Mangus Destroyer of Humans (signing them to massive contracts) to be the new company’s aces. With Morpheus and Mangus on board, the brothers’ pro-wrestling venture landed some much-needed credibility. That newfound credibility made is easer for the two to lure in talent from across the cosmos and even sign current and former D.W.F stars that they hope will get eyes on the product and help build a fan base, at first in the East, and then throughout the entire Galaxy.
Even without the sanctioning of the U.F.S.P All-Systems Governing Body, Jonny & Carlos have ensured fans and critics alike that the promotion’s championships will be more than just fancy gold and jeweled accessories. The championships sanctioned by the federation will be treated with respect and taken seriously and will be defended by their champions across the Eastern sector without exception.
For their first event, the brothers chose one of the most popular vacation destinations in the entire galaxy, let alone the eastern sector - The lavish Monocero Ringworld Casino & Resort. Well-Known in the Milky Way as the place to be in the Summer entertainment months as the resort holds several big shows from it’s 30 + thousand seat Ballroom and even more impressive 67 thousand seat Coliseum Amphitheatre.
With the venue rented and the talent settled on, the brothers next needed to secure broadcasting rights. Using their vast connections made during their time as Media moguls, the brothers were easily able to work out a deal with Monocero Media Insights to air the event, now being dubbed ‘Eastern Revelations’ exclusively across closed-circuit holo-vid, entirely bypassing often restrictive and expensive network control.
With a deal landed to air their big events, the brothers wrapped the entire thing up by signing a lucrative syndication deal with PAN GALACTIC TV and SCREAMING GONZO ENTERTAINMENT that will, once a month for 2-hours, bring Eastern-Systems Wrestling into billions of homes in the galaxy via a Highlight show aimed at recapping the previous months events.
A recent press release confirmed the title of the monthly Highlight Show: “THE ALL-SYSTEMS PROMOTER. It is scheduled to debut at midnight GST (Galactic Standard Time) during the first QTR of 2084.
Most pundits are cautiously optimistic about the venture, sighting the brother’s knowledge and experience in promoting their businesses and the fact that they were able to land several big name pro-wrestlers from the D.W.F, something most, if not all, agree will vastly aid the new company in gaining interest. On top of that, Jonny and Carlos V made sure to hire the best people available to work the promotion’s office. The biggest name being Torin Caelum who also signed a contract to make appearances for the federation on a part-time basis through 2087. Caelum’s position behind the scenes is as booker & commissioner. Mangus and Morpheus are also figured in on an ownership level, the pair comprising roughly 15% of the company’s ownership with the other 85% going to the brothers (split evenly between them) and a third investor, Mr Frost, who currently holds 10% of the company.
Jonny and Carlos V are betting big on pro-wrestling, a bet many, if not all pundits agree, has the chance to pan out far better than even the brothers may suspect.
