Default Save Us: The End Of The Golden Age

Hello one and all. I have found a new lease on BTB life. It's a project that came to me out of nowhere. Where could one start a BTB? What can be rebooked in the history of Professional Wrestling? One would say "The Invasion!", "ECW in WWE!", "TNA being bought out by Vince!", etc. and etc. The two companies I grew up watching as a kid were WWF & WCW. Back in 1995 I watched my first match on WCW Saturday Night and it involved Arn Anderson. My love for Professional Wrestling grew and grew by leaps and bounds during the next couple of years, as friends of mine cooked up fantasy tournaments, cards, and, we'd wrestle each other in the basement (all the while being careful), reanacting maneuvers (to a certain extent) and having the time of our lives!

Wrestling fascinated me so much that I started learning about everything that came before the year 1995, going back to as far back as I could starting with WrestleMania 1. Through the years I picked up on ECW, Japanese wrestling and everything else in between. I hope that those that will read this effort will see how much research was put into this to be as precise as possible and to respect the timeline as best as I can. Surely, this is fantasy, so, a few minor details might have been forgotten, no less.

This BTB starts on April 12th, 1990. We're off the heels of WWF's WrestleMania VI where in the Main Event, Intercontinental Champion the Ultimate Warrior ousted Hulk Hogan for the WWF Championship. Setting in a new era among WWF's top performers. In WCW, their latest PPV was WrestleWar, in which NWA/WCW World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair sucessfully defended his title against Number 1 Challenger and United States Champion Lex Luger. Luger's friend, Sting, who fend off an attack by his former teammates the 4 Horsemen, suffered a knee injury that is still keeping him from the ring as we speak, an injury that could be keeping him away from the ring for at least until the month of July.

This is the diaries of both company, day-by-day. News about both companies will be reported, events, tv shows and the likes will be detailed in full or shorter versions, and, most of all, history will be rewritten. Enjoy!
