Very cool approach with how you are basing the action off of actual cards run back in the day.
And I totally know what you mean about trying to work in all of the tremendous talent across the product lines. So many possibilities here for sure.
You're indy feds are always great and I have no doubt about this one.
Claudio Castagnoli is off to a pretty good start. Causing chaos inside and outside the ring. Gotta dig his style.
Really enjoying this!
By the end of the first game year, I expect to add a second promotion under the same umbrella which will incorporate wrestlers from the first CZW set as well as more of the Chikara guys and possibly a few from the first CWFH set... After that, I'll start to focus on the second ROH, CZW and CWFH sets... At this rate, I figure I'll start a couple more promotions in year three to handle Evolve and Shimmer... I'm really excited to see how it all plays out!
Wow, tough night for AmDrag. Congrats to Nigel. Nice win by FIST.
You got that right, I was kinda hoping for a three-way tie - It would have given me a great excuse to book them in another three-way competition of some kind... As it stands, Danielson can still boast that he won the first main event in the new promotion's history against the same two men... I'm looking forward to what the future holds... Many thanks for staying tuned!
