Thanks Troy I was struggling with what I wanted to do for my legends fed. My old NWA which only had a handful of cards was fun, but felt like it lost a little of the territorial flavor you could get with a legends fed. So I wanted something a little smaller. Being in Chicago, I started looking into the history of the area and, because I wasn't too thrilled with going with the AWA which would have replicated a lot of what I was doing with NWA, I thought, why not dig deep and really run it like a smaller localized territory. Chicago has such a fascinating history in pro-wrestling and I figured why not capitalize on some of that. Starting out the roster is going to be a little heavy with top guys, but I have a plan in place to transition to utilizing the under- and mid-card guys.

Thanks DMKII: 'The Revenge', I should've been more clear, though, it'll be single elimination. I love round robins tournaments, but I think this would've been too much tournament stuff to get things started. That said, there will be a round robin singles tournament down the line!
Solid picks from both you and Pariah. Without spoiling anything, after rolling out a few cards, your picks are still alive...
