Re: Presenting AOW: Art of War Wrestling - The Greatest Affair
Thanks for the early support and thoughts, fellas. It's greatly appreciated. Here's the first bit of news...
…and now the first preview!
Spoiler for Those who care for news:
~The signing of Shawn Michaels, while done essentially behind the back then in the face of Paul Heyman, isn’t ruffling as many feathers as the Bobby Lashley signing. Heyman reportedly wanted to stay away from WWE “big guys” and isn’t too hot on the signing of Chris Masters, either.
~Michaels being signed gives the federation a legitimate, easily recognized multi-time world champion. He seems to be the shoo-in for the inaugural AOW World Champion, but HBK is taking t humbly. Michaels, who has been awarded creative control of his character and minimum backstage pull, is reportedly pulling for the title to go to Chris Jericho first.
~In roster news, a few talents will be held off the roster for several weeks being built up upon their debuts. Paul “Big Show” Wright is among these, as well as Carly Colon, who pitched a new gimmick for himself and won’t debut for a good while. Aero Star, the luchadore prospect from Mexico, will be built up before debuting several weeks into the promotion.
~The lack of publicized tag teams raises a few eyebrows, but with AOW’s desire to build a majority of the tag division from within, unannounced tag teams shouldn’t be that much of a surprise and will slowly begin to show up over the first several weeks of the promotion.

“The Greatest Affair of the State”
War brings with it discord, famine, panic, and Oblivion. War has arrived, as Oblivion takes center stage! The inaugural episode of AOW Wrestling’s Wednesday Night Oblivion has arrived! This groundbreaking pilot is already breaking rules – by being granted a 90 minute time spot – live in the Hammerstein Ballroom.
The head founder of AOW, Paul Heyman, will be in attendance to address the fan faithfuls and has already promised to set the roster in its place to send shockwaves through the wrestling world!
The stars of AOW are ready to wow to world and show why they’re the best pro wrestling has to offer – and they’ll get the chance!! The Hooliganz will meet the World’s Greatest Tag Team in tag action, while Jack Evans and Jamie Noble will represent the AOW cruiserweights.
But this all fails to compare to the unveiling of the AOW World Championship…which will find its first beholder!! No match type has been announced, nor has the participants, but we have been assured to crown the FIRST EVER AOW World Champion!
Who will be the stars to look out for, who will be left in the dust, and who will be the first AOW World Champion? Find out, 9 EST on FX!
Show should be up Sunday-ish. Hope you guys stick with me 'til then.
