Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

A. Jarrett gets the title shot.

Could continue where they left off before Scott Stenier and also can be a hated heel.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

I say A, because Jarrett's one of my favourite wrestlers and he's a good champ. This is getting better each time.

April 1, 2001- Ric Flair’s Bedroom- 11:23

Ric Flair: Well Jeff, I must say, you are without a doubt the future Ric Flair, and I have thought that from the first time I saw you wrestle. WCW is going to need you to help lead the company back to the status of number one promotion in the world. Jeff, you are indeed the Chosen One my man, and I am going to agree to get you a guaranteed World Heavyweight Championship reign if it means you staying with WCW anyways.

Jeff Jarrett: That’s what I like to hear, Ric, that is what I like to hear. I’ll sign with the new WCW, and then, Jeff Jarrett is your new WCW World Heavyweight Champion!

Flair: Well Jeff, I must say, just because I am giving you this Title reign doesn’t mean you’ll be getting it right away. I mean, Booker is a deserving champion and all… we want to give him a run with the belt.

Jarrett: Hey, hey, hey, Ric, Booker can have his fun in the sun for a while, but you and I both know it, WCW will be the most successful with me on top.

Flair: And in time, you will be on top. I just want to make sure that the feud and storyline is right. I don’t want you to win the World Title in some mediocre feud; it’s going to be the big thing.

Jarrett: That’s what I’m talking about! It’s all set then, Ric. I’ll sign with WCW, you give me a guaranteed World Title reign.

Flair: Yeah, its all set.

Jarrett: Good, then I will talk to you later…

Flair: Wait, Jeff! This uh, little talk… keep it quiet. I don’t want, um, the boys to know about it.

Jarrett: Heh, sure thing Naitch. Later.

Jarrett hung up his phone, and left Ric to think about what he had just done. Ric Flair just made a secret agreement with Jeff Jarrett, giving Jeff a guaranteed World Heavyweight Championship reign. Ric knew he shouldn’t have done that, but he wanted to see Jeff in WCW. He though Jeff could be the next “Nature Boy” in professional wrestling, and he wanted to be the man to make Jeff Jarrett a big star, bigger than he was now. Steve and Eric may not like this deal, and that is why he knew he just had to persuade them into giving him a reign as Champion; he couldn’t say he promised Jeff the Title. He had to keep this deal what it was, a secret.

April 2, 2001- Ric Flair’s Mansion 8:13 PM

It was the next night, and the three men were once again assembled in the mansion of Ric Flair. The deadline the three owners had made had now passed. It was time to assemble the final roster. At the time the deadline was made, the following superstars had not yet decided on signing with WCW or staying on their AOL-Time Warner contract; Buff Bagwell, Goldberg, Jeff Jarrett, Kevin Nash, Lex Luger, Scott Steiner, Shane Douglas, Stevie Ray, and The Cat. By now, those 9 superstars’ status with WCW was now fully known.

Steve Borden: Alright, well, this is it guys- the WCW Roster is now about to be finalized! We each were to contact 3 men and find out if they were going to sign or not. Ric, why don’t you go first.

Ric Flair: Alright Steve, let’s see. Jeff Jarrett has signed with us, as has Scott Steiner.

Steve Borden: Lex and Buff both happily signed the new WCW contract. The both said they were looking to tag team together, and I have no problems letting the two do that. Shane Douglas is going to become a free agent. He is looking to just wrestle the independents for a while.

Eric Bischoff: Stevie Ray is retiring from the business, and is going to be one of our road agents. The Cat has decided to become a free agent. He said he was looking to get away from the business for a while…

Flair: And for Nash!?

Bischoff: Let me guess, you think I probably wielded some secret deal with Nash that will give him some power backstage?

Ric swallowed hard. Ric could see Eric doing something like that, but it was really Ric who made the secret deal.

Bischoff: Well Ric, let me tell you something. Kevin Nash is an egotistical hack. That man played and controlled my mind for 4 years, and he isn’t doing that anymore! He tried to make a deal with me; he wanted a guaranteed World Heavyweight Title run! But you know what, Ric? I told him fuck no! This is the NEW World Championship Wrestling, and I wasn’t going to let there be any politics in this company. I knew you wouldn’t make a deal like that, and I knew Steve wouldn’t either. I said I am a changed man damn it, and that isn’t just me bull shitting the boys. I am a changed man. Kevin Nash is not a part of WCW.

Ric felt like a complete ass. Here Eric openly said that he, Ric, would not make a secret deal like that with anyone in WCW. But in reality, Ric was the one who made a secret deal with Jeff Jarrett, giving him the same thing Kevin wanted Eric to do for him.

Flair: I-I, I didn’t think that, Eric. I just wanted to know if that man would be a part of this company or not.

Bischoff: Yeah, I bet Flair. God damn it man, you are going to have to learn to trust me! The three of us are a team, Ric, a team! We all control the fate of WCW, and if this company is going to survive, you have to trust me! You may be the Nature Boy in the ring, but damn man, this isn’t the Ric Flair show! This isn’t ‘what Flair says, go’, Ric. You’re the Nature Boy in the ring! You’re a legend in the ring! But when it comes to running a company, to making a company a success, I am the one who is the legend! I am! So for one second, Ric, just one fucking second, get rid of your ego and try and co-operate.

Oh, that was it- Eric had hit a nerve. Ric was fuming! How dare Bischoff take shot after shot in Flair? Flair stood up, and dived over the coffee table that separated him and Bischoff, lunging himself into Bischoff, and tackling him into the chair Eric was sitting on. Flair started throwing wild right hands at the temple of Eric, but Borden quickly tackled Ric to the ground, restraining him.

Borden: KNOCK IT OFF! The BOTH of you! You two must work together for this company survive and thrive! You both have egos, and you both need to get them in check. If you both want WCW to be a global powerhouse, and it to be the number on promotion in the world, you are going to have to set your differences aside and work together! I am not going to stay here and be the one who has to keep you two in line; I’m not some person in a day care. You two are adults and professionals, so act like it.

Silence, lots and lots of silence. Flair and Bischoff exchange glares, while Borden lets out a deep breath.

Borden: Look, let’s just call it a night. Everything we have is done. Our roster is finalized, and we know what we want to do schedule wise. Let’s just all go home, calm down, get some sleep, and go from there. Eric, you leave the room first.

Eric leaves the room as said, Borden standing between the two men. Bischoff walks right out to his car and leaves. Flair retires to his room as well. WCW was a saved promotion, but how long can this saved promotion be a surviving promotion when two of the owners can’t even get along?

When it seemed like the company would be bought out by Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation, the trio of Eric Bischoff, Ric Flair, and Steve Borden have bought the company from Ted Turner. Although the company is still alive and running, WCW is left without any sort of Television deal. The Trio (as they will now be called) has decided on going through a dark phase throughout at least April. The company will not have any Pay Per View’s, but starting in May, the company will start running a light house show schedule throughout mainly the south east. WCW is looking to secure a television deal throughout the month of April, and hope to be able to have Monday Nitro starting at some time in May.

~World Championship Wrestling has announced its new official roster on today. The roster is:
Air Paris
AJ Styles
Big Vito
Billy Kidman
Booker T
Brian Adams
Bryan Clarke
Chavo Guerrero Jr.
Chris Kanyon
Chuck Palumbo
David Flair
Diamond Dallas Page
Disco Inferno
Don Harris
Elix Skipper
Evan Karagias
Hugh Morris
Jamie Noble
Jeff Jarrett
Jim Duggan
Johnny The Bull
Kaz Hayashi
Kid Romeo
Lance Storm
Larry Zybsko
Lash Leroux
Lex Luger
Mark Jindrak
Mike Awesome
Mike Sanders
Miss Elizabeth
Rey Misterio Jr.
Ric Flair
Rick Steiner
Road Warrior Animal
Ron Harris
Scott Steiner
Sean O’Haire
Shane Helms
Shannon Moore
Stacy Keibler
Terry Funk
The Wall
Many stars seemed to stay with the company, but big names that are missing from the list include Dustin and Dusty Rhodes (who signed WWF Contracts), Goldberg, Kevin Nash, Shane Douglas, and Sid. WCW will still have their other bigger name stars like Booker T, Diamond Dallas Page, Jeff Jarrett, and Scott Steiner, as well as Ric Flair and Sting, of course. has listed the company’s official championships and their champions. The titles are:
WCW Champions:
World Heavyweight: Booker T
United States: Booker T
Tag Team: Palumbo and O’Haire
Cruiserweight: Shane Helms
Cruiserweight Tag Team: Misterio Jr. and Kidman
Hardcore: Vacant
It comes as no surprise that all of the champions are still the same, but it was rumored that all of the championships would be declared vacant. It is somewhat interesting that the company has decided to keep the Hardcore Title around, but it probably will not receive that much attention, if any.

~The full list of the talent that has left WCW can be seen here:
Alex Wright
Bam Bam Bigelow
Brian Knobbs
Chris Candido and Tammy Sytch
Dustin Rhodes
Dusty Rhodes
Jason Jett
Jimmy Hart
Kevin Nash
Leia Meow
Major Gunns
MI Smooth
Miss Jones
Norman Smiley
Shawn Stasiak
Shane Douglas
Stevie Ray
The Cat
As previously stated, both Dustin and Dusty Rhodes have signed contracts with the World Wrestling Federation. Stevie Ray has retired and is now working as a road agent backstage. Sid, who suffered a serious fractured leg at the January PPV, Sin, has also retired from the wrestling business.

~The Trio reportedly have no interest in bringing in any outside talent to WCW right now, but after WCW can get a TV deal and things get rolling again, The Trio are looking to bring in many former ECW wrestlers. The Trio has had their eyes on Rob Van Dam, CW Anderson, Nova, Steve Corino, Super Crazy, Kid Kash, Danny Doring and Roadkill, and the Full Blooded Italians.
The diary is about to get up and running ladies and gentleman. I just have to finish getting everything set up in EWR, and secure the TV deal. And then, we're off.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

World Championship Wrestling Reaches TV Deal with USA Network!

-April 16- World Championship Wrestling has announced this Monday morning at a press conference in Atlanta, Georgia, that World Championship Wrestling has reached a deal with the USA Network. World Championship Wrestling, or WCW, has been without any television shows since the end of March, when they were kicked off of the Turner Network’s and lost Ted Turner as a financial backer. The company seemed to be on the verge of destruction when arch-rival Vincent K. McMahon of the World Wrestling Federation put in an offer to purchase the WCW Company. However, the company has now been bought out by Eric Bischoff, Richard Fliehr (known on-screen as “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair), and Steve Borden (known as Sting on-screen). The three owners of WCW have been in contacts with television networks such as USA, NBC, CBS, Fox, and MTV for possible deals, but it was the USA Network that signed a deal with World Championship Wrestling.

WCW will air its flagship program, Monday Nitro, starting Monday nights on May 7, 2001, and the show will run from 8PM-10PM EST. The USA Network had previously been the home of WCW’s arch-rival WWF’s Monday Night RAW, airing Monday Night RAW from January 11, 1993, to September 18, 2000, before RAW made the jump to TNN. It is rumored that USA has only signed a TV deal with WCW to get back at the World Wrestling Federation, but that is just a rumor. Again, WCW Monday Nitro will debut on the USA Network on May 7, starting at 8:00 PM EST.

Monday Nitro will be held live, and tickets are now on sale for the first Nitro, which will be held in Atlanta, Georgia. has announced that World Championship Wrestling will return to Pay Per View on Sunday, May 27, 2001, with Slamboree! Slamboree will be held in Mobile, Alabama, and tickets are on sale now. In fact, has listed its full PPV schedule for the rest of the year. The schedule is:
May 27- Slamboree
June 17– Great American Bash
July 15– Bash at the Beach
August 26– Big Bang
September 30– Fall Brawl
October 28– Halloween Havoc
November 11- Mayhem
December 16- Starrcade
~Now that World Championship Wrestling has secured a television deal, the question now has been what to do with storylines? Should everything be scrapped, or should WCW continue on like nothing happened? Well, the plan right now it seems is to basically start over, but some old storylines could continue. So far, it is rumored that Team Canada and the Magnificent Seven will be separated, but the Filthy Animals will stay a faction. Not much else is known, so it will definitely be a surprise to see how everything plays out when Monday Nitro returns to television on May 7, from 8 to 10 PM EST!
Now that a TV deal is secured, I look to start writing some shows. Peace.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

I am really enjoying this thread, it is a unique way of doing a BTB, where you get to see all the backstage wranglings, and there are interactive elements. I never saw much WCW but I have enjoyed what I have seen here so far, and look forward to seeing your first Nitro.
