I ntense Championship Wrestling
Ric Flair decided he still wanted to be involved with wrestling some how, but Vince McMahon would only hire him if he would come back wrestling full time, which Flair just couldn't do. He Talked to jeff Jarrett, about working with TNA part time just working backstage, but Jeff had nothing for Flair, then Flair got it.... Hes going to start his own company with some of the money he has saved up, of course he cant start off to big in case it fails so he dosent go bankrupt so he is going to only sign 15 superstars, between free agents and some who have recently been released. For now Flair has bought a one hour time slot every monday night on CW network at 11 pm (central) (also not when i post the shows) As of right now there are no PPVs until the company makes it bigger
Rob Van Dam
Paul Bearer- Kane
Alicia Webb- X-Pac
Velvet Sky- Billy Gunn
shelly martinez- Gangrel
play by play- Mean Gean Oakerland
Color Comentator- Macho Man Randy Savage
Backstage Interviewer- Christy Hemme
talent scout-Dean Malenko
Flairs right hand man- Arn Anderson
Nice start with the rosters at a nice size for a one hour show. possibly a handful more stars, possibly some females as valets and so on.
The layout is poor in my opinion not very catchy on the eye. Looks good and ill hook you up with a review for your first show.
If you're going with realism, which is the case gathered from the 15 wrestlers thing, then he tv show doesn't make sense. A slot like that would be a. nigh-impossible to get and b. extremely, extremely expensive.
I don't mind realism, nor do I the lack of it, but choose one and stick to it.
first show should be up by tuseday at the latest also im going to start a rumor central posting when tna/wwe contracts are up and where they might go
** PYROS **
Mean Gean: Hello everybody, thanks for tuning into ICW! I'm "Mean" Gean Oakerland along side of the Macho Man Randy Savage.

They go to lock up in the middle of the ring, as Gangrel spits a little of that blood into the face of Road Dogg, causing him to turn around trying to get it out of his eyes, and Gangrel takes advantage by shoving him to the ground and starts punching him in the back of the head. The ref finally gets Gangrel off of him to allow Road Dogg to slowly get to his feet and as he gets up Gangrel runs at him to closeline him but road dogg ducks and puts gangrel in a sleeper but he quickly grabbed the ropes. Gangrel turns only to be closelined out of the ring, and Road Dogg goes out there and stomps on Gangrel, then picks him up by his hairvand slams his head into the barrier and then goes in the ring and back out to restart the count. He goes to pick up gangrel again but gets a elbow to the gut followed by another, and Gangrel gets to his feet. Gangrel slides back in the ring followed by road dogg, and when they both get to there feet, Gangrel is the first to strike with a couple right hands, followed up with a Side belly to belly suplex and covers; 1....2.. Kick Out! Gangrel goes right back to work by punching road dogg on the ground and hits Multiple running elbow drops, followed by a Rear naked choke........ Road Dogg is struggling to get to the ropes, but finally gets his arm on the rope. Gangrel goes over and dose a taunt with Shelly, as Road Dogg turns him around and starts in with shake rattle and roll, sending Gangrel to the ground, he goes to the ropes to do the shakey leg drop but shelly grabs his leg he yells at her turns around to be met with a kick to the gut and a Impaler DDT and gangrel pins him 1....2.....3
** Heres your winner Gangrel **
** Gangrel and Shelly celebrate in the ring and the lights go out, and turn back on with Shelly, Gangrel and the road dogg laying outside the ring covered in blood **
Mean Gean: Well there you have it, hopefully the first of many many ICW matches.
Macho Man: And what a match it was Mean Gean, watching that match makes me want to return to the ring. But what happend to them after the match
Mean Gean: Well Macho, we both know that wouldnt be a good idea you might hurt a hip or something. And Im not sure.
Macho Man: Not funny and watch yourself.
** Konnan comes out **
Konnan: Whats up, make some noise! K-Dawg is back in the USA to wrestle. I asked to come out here to thank one man tonight, a man who though Konnan can still wrestle, other then the Mexican league. This man is the founder of the ICW Ric Flair! Thank you Mr.Flair for giving me a chance, unlike TNA or the WWE, I know i might not have many years left but I will do what I can to climb atop of the ICW and win the World title one day. TNA your going down in court, you grease balls. As for next week, Flair has a 5 man Hardcore match for the Hardcore title, and consider me in that match and winning it.
** Raven comes to the ring **
Raven: So Konnan, your in the hardcore match, what makes you think your winning, how are you hardcore, your in no league of mine. I will take it upon me to make sure a loser like you will not win. I never liked you in wcw or tna your a waste of money for the company. You act like you know pain, well I KNOW PAIN. Next week ill show you pain.
Konnan: Why wait.
** Konnan clotheslines Raven and starts punching him. Konnan gets up and as Raven starts to get up Konnan kicks him in his head, and puts him in the Tequila Sunrise, until the refs break him off **
Macho Man: Wow that was explosive, and it looks like Konnan got the best of Raven there.
Mean Gean: Yes he did, I cant wait for the 5 man hardcore match next week.

Before reviewing your show, I must say, I really like the idea of having this small a roster to start a fictional promotion under the guidance of Ric Flair (how about calling on JJ Dillon for the booking?).
Anyhow, just as a side note, maybe it's not too late for you to change your tv format of shows to having monthly shows. Someone already pointed that out and I think he's right.
Ohh well, here goes my review.
ICW TV - Episode 001 Review
Segment 1 (Opening) = (Interesting choice for a broadcast team, Mean Gene's done some play by play before but, I don't think he's that up to date with all the moves that have emerged on the scene, but Macho as color guy is quite cool) The show rundown gave us a good idea of what was to come.
Segment 2 (Gangrel V. Road Dogg) = Okay match, they're both pretty much past their prime, and no one could really carry this match for the other, although BG can still sell his ass off. Wasn't the best opening match for a new company, still, it was what it was I guess. I'm just really perplexed as to whether or not Mean Gene had his glasses on when he clearly saw three people covered in blood on the outside and reacting to that as if it was common knowledge that once a match ends, the lights go out and you get yourself covered in blood.
Segment 3 (Konna's Shoot... I mean Interview) = When I saw Konnan's name in there, in your roster I mean, I was again a bit perplexed. Do we know for sure that his health his good enough for him to participate in any action, especially hardcore action. What was a bit sad to see was how bland Raven was. I guess that's what you get for signing a deal with CW... restrictions...
Segment 4 (Gunn V. Goldust) = Let's face it, Skye & Love with Gunn is a nice addition to their persona. But, honestly, Gunn doesn't need Skye. Ohh well, maybe it saved this match a bit to have such a nice butt walking around ringside. But, there's no doubt that these two guys are still good workers, the match wasn't bad, but, felt rushed a bit and not emotionaly charged like the type of match they can produce in 5-10 minutes.
Segment 5 (Hall/RVD V. Kane/Test) = Weird pairings, but, it really doesn't matter since the whole point of this is to soon crown your first ICW World Champ. It was easy to see that Hall & RVD were going to win from the start since no one wants to see Test as World Champ of any company, period. Every turned out quite okay match wise, although in a situation like this, RVD can't shine, which is bad because I feel he's maybe your most marketable star and the one the company should be built around for the Intensity that is. So cool, RVD V. Hall next week but... having Hall & RVD shake hands after the match... they must have been so damn high because if they look back at the tape of that, they'll both see that they're in the wrong company doing stuff like that. Especially considering Hall should have been made the heel by refusing or attacking RVD to create and build heat around that whole moment.
Overall = Mate, I won't lie to you, there's some work to be done here. First bit of advice is... when doing promos, try and find videos on youtube to get acquainted with the kind of promos each individual does. Or else, it's generic-city and there's no individuality promo after promo.
Your matches aren't too bad and you'll only get better as you get to write more of them. At least you got the shortness of said matches right considering you had three in a 1hour (publicity filled, I'm sure) show.
And maybe try finding someone to replace Mean Gene, the guy's a great interviewer but is subpar as a play-by-play guy and I'm sure he'd be the first one to tell you that. What about the recently fired Gabe Sapolsky (aka Jimmy Bauer aka Chris Lovey), I'd love to hear him and Macho do broadcasting duties on your show.
5 Man Hardcore match for the Hardcore Title- 5 Men will enter the dangerous match, they will be batter, bruised, and Bloody. And why will these men enter this match, to be the first ICW Hardcore Champion. So far we know Raven and Konnan will be in this match, so tune in to see the other 3 men.
ICW World Title match- Last week RVD and Scott Hall teamed up and beat Kane and Test for this match now these two will square off to find out who the first ever ICW world Champion will be
show should be up by sunday
update i just got my laptop back from being crashed ill get the show up sometime this week
