Bill Gates Presents the Gates Fighting Corporation
Welcome!, This is my 3rd time working on a BTB, both of which lasted shortly due to time constraints, but I have prepped this for months and am far ahead of schedule in show making.
This BTB will follow one show of a wrestling corporation founded by Mega-Billionaire Bill Gates, as the shows take place roughly one year into the future of this post. Enjoy.
Article from Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI), Apri1 1st 2010:
If someone told me a year ago that I’d be lurking my way through smelly church storage rooms, turned Indy wrestling locker rooms on a regular basis, I…Well I assume you get the point, that I’d be baffled, first of all not even knowing what the hell “Indy” wrestling was. It was at these venues from which I could truly discern in what shape the wrestling business was in. It was loosing interest in a faulting economy, and worst of all divided. This word is really key. The profit, if you could even call it that, in pro wrestling was divided, and there was less of a profit due to the fact that no one wanted to watch such a vast amount of shows, containing horribly combined rosters, with their favorite wrestlers dispersed in so many places, This, of course, led to lack of interest, lack of money for companies, and the overall process of the disintegration of two main flagships. As Vince McMahon and Jeff Jarrett were on the verge of loosing hope, I became aware of a business opportunity while looking over the current stock market. The biggest, most extreme, dire, drops in stock value lay on World Wrestling Entertainment, and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. Through further exploration, I gained a significant amount of knowledge on both businesses, and in not too much time found the problems lying at the bottom of the pile of decay.
1. Terribly Divided Rosters.
2. A Bad Economy.
3. The departure of wrestlers, in anger of management. (For example John Cena leaving for TNA, we all know how that tremendously hurt both companies)
4. And finally, an overall lack of interest from fans.
Of course I wasn’t the only person to see the big problems, modestly as possible; I just have the most money. This would all be easy to fix with large investments in athletes, buy-outs of the two companies, and then the creation of a world-wide powerhouse. The interest would come back, thus so would the money, and it would stay here , all of the money controlled by just one company. This is most important, at least to me it is.
But back to the smelly church storage room, this was my last endeavor, from marble floored spas and fitness centers in the WWE, to this place. In Pittsburgh Pennsylvania I went to a church for an Indy show, and bought back a few final pieces of the puzzle.
I, of course, operate many employees, and I believe to be fair, and so I wanted to give back as many jobs as possible that were lost in the downfall. One of my most recent accusations was in Hunter Helmsley, and while he may no longer wrestle due to suffering a broken back in the infamous Hell In A Cell (Career Match) vs. John Cena, I have decided to break the news and tell the wrestling world that he will be the Commander in Chief of the flagship wrestling show, of my grand company. With Mr. Helmsley as the head of our main show I have chosen a very specific roster, an accumulation of brands, a roster which truly outdoes any of the other shows, through focusing mainly on younger, more athletic talent, this show is literally and figuratively the future of wrestling.
My role in all of this is simple, I have chosen to stay way, way, behind the scenes, you will never see me, basically the opposite-McMahon, my influence is only on the paycheck, and the financial side of the corporation. There are four other names on the paycheck however, Hunter Helmsley, Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, and Jeff Jarrett, who I have decided will control everything in the company to do with wrestling ( which is just about everything), and their own shows respectively. Vince commanding Wednesday Night Apocalypse, Jeff Jarrett commanding Friday Night Poison, Shane commanding Saturday Night Hydro, and finally, in regards to the grandest of our programs, Mr. Helmsley will be commanding our show on Monday Night, Grapplers Throwers and Strikers. I assure you, this is epic.

This proceeded to a squash match against Kurt Angle at Victory Road in 2009. Never mind the stupid management, Sonjay is a still a fantastically skilled high flyer.
