Yeah, I just can't stay away. I barely have any time to write, but I still try. This is the time period that initially got me into booking in the first place, so I figured I should give it ago. I'll try and be active in terms of feedback and stuff as well, but we'll see.

All comments are appreciated, as well as some smart ass comments from a select few if they please. Anyways not much meat here, but it's a necessary post. Some news and notes hopefully not to far away.

Oh, and it's good to be back <3

Not familiar with your booking, but you've picked one hell of a time period. Especially looking forward to seeing what you've got planned in terms of the Invasion.

I'll be reading.

Looks cool Stoj, great time period and all. Interested to see your take on the Invasion (assuming that's still going ahead?) and a heel Austin.

I'll be reading.

You've forgotten the WWF Light-Heavyweight Championship. Crash Holly was the champion at the time.

Anyway, good luck with this. 2001 holds a very special place in my heart so hopefully you can do my memories justice.

As I told you before, whilst what you do with the Stone Cold/Mr. McMahon alliance and possible invasion storylines will be interesting, I'm even more curious about what you'll do with the midcard talent. I found that portion of the roster difficult to handle when I tried to book this period many moons ago, so hopefully you can manage it better. I'd expect the likes of Edge and Christian to rise, and an eventual cut of talent like the Bull Buchanans and the Alberts.

Would also be interested if you call up any OVW talent. Sure, most of the famous names like Lesnar, Orton and Cena debuted in '02, but I don't think it'd be a big deal if you brought them in earlier for the purpose of this thread.

I'll be reading...

Jobber.

A few things:
1. This time period is awesome. Own it, plz.
2. Push Tazz to the fucking moon. Anything less will result in total underachievement.
3. I like the ENTHUSIASM! of this post. Seems like you're ready and raring to go.

Good luck bruh. I'll be an avid reader.

Thanks for the comments so far, much appreciated. Been trying to read A LOT of shows recently to catch up with everybody's threads since the last time I've been around, so everybody can expect some comments hopefully sometime soon...ish...eventually.

As for the slow moving nature of this thread, don't stress. The first show is done so you'll at least get one out of me. Next post will be a preview for the first show.

WWF Rumour Mill

The pay per view buy rate for WrestleMania X-Seven was the highest of all time. Whilst that in part is due to a well rounded card as a whole, a lot of the credit from the powers that be is going to the two participants in the main event. The Rock defended his WWF Championship for the second time at ‘Mania against Stone Cold Steve Austin, and in a match that was much better than their first, Stone Cold came out on top. The night ended with a huge twist, as Austin joined forces with his arch nemesis, Vince McMahon himself. It’s said the WWF considered the Stone Cold character to be becoming a little stale, so a change was needed to keep Austin fresh. With the fresh turn and The Rock’s character looking for revenge, it’s common knowledge that this angle will probably dominate the main event leading into the summer. With the recent purchase of opposing company World Championship Wrestling, McMahon does not want to rest on his laurels though, so we may see a few other names added to this main event program, just to keep things interesting.

Despite the fact that the main event received most of the credit from the guys in the back, the company is still extremely pleased with the way the rest of the night went down as well. With all the title changes that took place at ‘Mania, it also seems like we might have some longer title reigns, especially in the mid card. Not only to add some stability to the program, but also to add even more credibility to the already illustrious titles. The WWF is all about listening to the fans though, so if there is an act that begins getting over with the crowd, there’s always the chance they may reshuffle plans to give them a run with some gold.

The mantra of the company at the moment does seem to be about change, yet they know they have to be responsible with it as well. The WWF wants to run with fresh angles, but the main event scene probably won’t be only angle continuing on from ‘Mania. It is extremely important for the company to finish the current angles which lead to ‘Mania’s success correctly, before moving on with bigger and better things.

There is set to be a few changes where the company’s hand has been forced. There are a few members of the roster looking to take some time off. Some of these guys are highly rated by the powers that be, and will be given powerful angles to do so, whilst others may have to begin pursuing their future endeavours. A few really big names are also said to be thinking about winding down their careers, and at this stage some of the names being mentioned are the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and The Undertaker. Whether all or any of these guys are actually thinking about hanging up the boots is yet to be confirmed, but if so, it would rock the foundations of the WWF.

With some exclusions expected to take place with the roster in the coming months, it is likely that the WWF will also be looking to bring in some new talent. This could come from independent companies, former ECW wrestlers, and the biggest scalp of them all, former WCW wrestlers. At this stage in regards to an invasion angle, the answer is a definitive NO. Vince McMahon doesn’t rate many of the WCW wrestlers that highly, and whilst a few dream matches may seem appealing, McMahon would rather stick with the cattle that made his farm the most effective. Again, that’s not to say the WWF won’t bring in anybody. McMahon has said to be big on loyalty, so wrestlers who left him in is time of need may not get much of a look in, whereas men who were loyal to their previous company may be seen as respected employees that McMahon can trust. One man who certainly knows that means he has no chance in getting a job is Jeff Jarrett, who is apparently already in talks with his father about trying to create a new wrestling company.

The company are also said to be happy with last year’s PPV schedule, so this year’s one will remain the same. The rumours are intoxicating, but now it’s time to sit back and actually watch what unfolds.

The "McMahon would rather stick with the cattle that made his farm the most effective" comment got a laugh out of me

A lack of Invasion is just as intriguing to me as a rebooked Invasion, so no Invasion is cool. Should be fun to see the focus on heel Austin's run as champ instead. Hoping he'll get a long run as champ as you alluded to in the notes, with a big pay off.

Good to hear you've finished the first show, really looking forward to it.

Default Re: World Wrestling Federation 2001 - The Aftermath

Glad to see some people are actually still interested in something I'd post considering how unreliable I've been in the past. Thanks for all the comments, here's the preview as promised.

***


WWF Monday Night RAW is WAR Preview – April 2nd, 2001

Last night was simply the greatest spectacle of all time, WrestleMania Seventeen. As great as the whole event was, nothing was bigger than last night’s main event, where The Rock defended the coveted WWF Championship against Stone Cold Steve Austin. This was the second ‘Mania that these two men have been in the main event together, and they picked right where they left off only two years ago. There was a lot different about last night’s match though, including the fact that it was a No Disqualification match. However, when the bell rung for the final time, the result was exactly the same. In his hometown of Texas, ‘The Texas Rattlesnake’ Stone Cold defeated The Rock to regains his beloved WWF title. The method to the result wasn’t what we’ve all come to expect from Austin though, as what took place last night is being called the biggest shock in wrestling history. Stone Cold sold his soul to the devil, aligning himself with his sworn enemy for so many years now, the owner of the WWF, Vince McMahon himself. Austin used the steel chair provided to him by McMahon to literally the beat the last bit of resolve out of The Rock. The Rock and all his fans are up in arms with what’s taken place, and a lot of Austin’s fans, especially in his home town of Texas, are left wondering why. We are scheduled to find out tonight, as Stone Cold has been scheduled to address the crowd to close the show tonight.

So not only does Vince McMahon seemingly have the WWF Champion in his back pocket once again, but he’s officially on top of the wrestling world... For now at least. The Monday Night Wars that have been going on for about six years now has just recently come to an end, as Ted Turner and World Championship Wrestling have had to throw in the towel. Instead of Vince McMahon having a monopoly over the wrestling world though, WCW was actually purchased by his own son, Shane McMahon. That must be a thorn in McMahon’s side, but at this point in time, WCW are just not a legitimate threat anymore. Even losing to Shane McMahon last night in his street fight, after being set up by his ‘friend’ Trish Stratus, and his wife Linda McMahon hasn’t put a dampen on Vince’s mood. He finally feels like he is on top of the world again, and McMahon has given himself the opening slot of tonight’s show to set the tone for what everybody can expect in the future.

WrestleMania was a big night for a number of championships in the WWF as well. Chris Jericho successfully defended the WWF Intercontinental title against William Regal, whilst Eddie Guerrero defeated Test to win the WWF European title, ‘The Big Red Machine’ Kane defeated Raven and The Big Show to win the WWF Hardcore title, and Edge and Christian defeated The Dudleyz and The Hardyz in a show stealing TLC match to win the WWF Tag Team titles. Whilst Edge and Christian won’t be in action, being allowed time for their bodies to recuperate, the other three champions will. Commissioner Regal has booked his recent nemesis Chris Jericho to defend the Intercontinental title against X Pac. Meanwhile, Test will be cashing in his rematch to try and regain the European title he lost in shady circumstances to Eddie Guerrero last night. And the former Hardcore Champion Raven has a death wish, as he’ll be going one on one with Kane in an attempt to regain the hardcore strap. This episode of Raw will definitely be a night of champions.

The champions aren’t the only ones who will be in action though, as WrestleMania has brought out the greatest ambitions of everybody on the roster. Not only will guys like Kurt Angle look to continue their winning ways, when he takes on Hardcore Holly, but guys like Chris Benoit, who Angle defeated in shady circumstances, will look to get back on the winners list when he faces Billy Gunn. The former WWF Tag Team Champions The Dudley Boyz, who are struggling to even walk after their epic TLC match last night, are also looking for redemption after a loss when they face Bull Buchanan and The Goodfather of the Right To Censor. Then there are the guys who are looking to make a statement after not having a match at ‘Mania, as Too Cool will take on X Factor members Albert and Justin Credible. It is clear that anybody and everybody are looking to make a statement tonight on Raw.

Tune in to see all this and much, much more in the fallout from WrestleMania in the Convention Centre for Raw is War!


Confirmed Matches:
WWF Intercontinental Championship – Chris Jericho vs. X Pac
WWF European Championship – Eddie Guerrero vs. Test
WWF Hardcore Championship – Kane vs. Raven
Billy Gunn vs. Chris Benoit
Hardcore Holly vs. Kurt Angle
Right To Censor vs. The Dudley Boyz
Too Cool vs. X Factor
