Re: Ultimate Wrestling Mayhem
The first month or two is set to be a scramble, as the head creative writer tries to settle the title pictures, as well as feuds & storylines. A bunch of signed wrestlers are going to be used sparingly for the first several months. Though it seems bad, many contracted wrestlers are paid by appearance. The UWM World Heavyweight Champion is set to be determined through an 8 man tournament. Heyman wanted to hold a 16 man tournament, but with only 19 contracted wrestlers, it leaves nothing else open. The UWM World Tag Team Championships, on the other hand, is set to be a clash of two well known teams.
Talk around UWM is that the first world champion is set to be Shelton Benjamin, who is a very gifted athlete, and can start the dawn of a new era. The problem surrounding Benjamin, however, is his lack of promo skills. A few other athletes in consideration for world champion are AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels and Gregory Helms.
There is worry amongst some wrestlers that Ultimate Wrestling Mayhem is trying to persuade higher profile names to the company to promote them. Such names include Randy "The Macho Man" Savage, Bill Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, and Bobby Lashley.
Finally, Heyman stressed in an important meeting with all wrestlers that UWM is about the quality of the wrestling. Although promos are on his mind, he wants to show that UWM is WRESTLING.
That's all for now. Should have the first Turbo posted this weekend or early next week.
