WWE 2009 – Bridging The Gap

Our story picks up from Wrestlemania 25 where WHC Edge and WWE Champion Randy Orton will lead us into the new wrestling year. While deciding on a project, I wasn’t sure whether to do one from present day WWE or go back to a time period that I felt had massive potential but was ruined by repetitive summer booking. While thinking over this problem I came up with a hybrid solution that I hope I will be able to make work. Instead of going through the trouble of having to debut every single new guy separately I have decided to just add them to the roster as they are. I think it would be impossible to try and push so many people at once. By just having them already there it will be much easier for me to help them grow. They will have the same characters but are basically starting from scratch therefore no championship history etc. It is with this mix of established WWE stars and the new stars of the future that WWE 2009 – Bridging The Gap hopes to prosper.

Roster Note

The annual WWE Draft will take place the night after Backlash. Once the draft has occurred both the Raw and SD rosters will be on lockdown. But until that time the Board of Directors has issued an open show policy where anybody can be on any show. This is mainly due to the fact that many of the Backlash matches are likely to be inter-promotional. Once the PPV is over and the draft has occurred each superstar must stick to their assigned roster or face hefty penalties. For this reason rosters will not be listed until after the draft but the overall WWE roster is as follows:

Hall of Champions:

WWE Champion - Randy Orton
World Heavyweight Champion - Edge
Intercontinental Champion - Rey Mysterio
United States Champion - MVP
Unified Tag Team Champions - The Miz and John Morrison
*MITB Holder - CM Punk

Regular roster:

John Cena
Triple H (inactive)
Batista (inactive)
Shawn Michaels
The Undertaker
Chris Jericho
Umaga (inactive)
Mr. Kennedy (inactive)

General Manager Note

After the events that occurred at Wrestlemania 25, the McMahon family has withdrawn itself from the office in order to recuperate. The WWE Board of Directors has therefore enacted the contingency plans set forth in the bylaws which state that they have exactly one month to find a new General Manager for Raw. Under the pursuit of a fresh direction, the Board of Directors has decided to release Vickie Guerrero and Teddy Long from their duties as Smackdown General Manager and Interim General Manager. They now have until the Draft to reveal who they have chosen to manage each show. Until then, their word is law.

WWE Smackdown

WWE have inked a deal with the USA network. The show will move to Thursday nights and go live. This will take place after WWE Backlash. Until then the show will remain on Friday nights and continue to be taped on Tuesdays.
