I've been working a while on this one, and for the first time ever I've taken my time to plan well ahead, before even mentioning anything about it to anyone. Here's my new pcoject.
In the year of 2009, more specific on April 5th 2009, the biggest company in the history of Sports Entertainment, World Wrestling Entertainment, was all set for what was expected to be the biggest event in the history of the industry, WrestleMania 25. But all in all the show became a disappointment, and the Board of Directors knew that they had to act. Step up or keep falling.
They knew that they had no other choice but to step up, and tighten up. They increased their drug policy in an attempt to raise the level of seriousness. They made some pretty interesting changes on the night of the Annual WWE Draft. They even made storylines putting Tommy Dreamer’s career on the line, and bringing retired Hall of Famer “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair back into the game although he wasn’t an in-ring superstar. But never the less, WWE stayed on the path of disappointment as the following Pay-Per Views, Backlash, Judgment Day and Extreme Rules, never hit the level of success as they were expected to. Ric Flair himself offered the WWE to come out of retirement in an attempt to help out, but was turned down and stayed in the role as “valet” of Batista in his feud with Randy Orton and Legacy. And in the storyline where ECW’s Tommy Dreamer put his career on the line in an attempt to become ECW Champion before his contract expired, Dreamer lost his final opportunity as ECW Champion Christian retained the title in a Triple Threat against Tommy Dreamer and Jack Swagger at Extreme Rules, pinning Jack Swagger. Tommy Dreamer later stated that he want to Vince McMahon and told him that it was time for him to move on, and also stated that the reason was that ECW no longer measured up to what he wanted it to be.
And that was just one out of many to leave WWE in 2009 for one reason or another. Some because of the new drug policy. Some got released. And then there were a special situation regarding ECW. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon called for a press conference after a disappointing Survivor Series. And the message he needed to deliver was that due to lower and lower numbers and fewer and fewer viewers, ECW was officially dying, and that the following Tuesday night would mark the night of the last ECW. Some superstars got drafted to RAW and SmackDown, and others got released. A change was made, and WWE went on towards better times…
But back to the Ric Flair situation. As mentioned, Ric Flair came to the conclusion that he wanted to step out of retirement and return to the ring. But Vince McMahon’s response was exactly what the WWE fans hoped and advised for. Not because of lack of respect for Ric Flair, but for the respect of possibly the greatest farewell-match in history, and for the respect of the following farewell to possibly the greatest wrestler of all time. Flair got turned down. So Flair played out his role in the Orton/Batista feud, but also told Vince McMahon that he had bigger things coming.
Months went by, but with the cancelling of ECW after Survivor Series, Flair stepped up to the plate and called for a press conference of his own. Flair announced to the whole world that in the last months he had been working with his own little experiment. And that the recent activities in the World of Sports Entertainment had helped making it possible. Flair then publicly introduced his experiment: Plans for starting his own company. He then proved to have plenty of recourses, plenty of backup in friends and family, plenty of advertising and plenty of ideas. So all Ric Flair now needed was staff members to help making his new project the best as possible. And most important of all, a roster…
Rob Van Dam
Scotty 2 Hotty
Lacey Von Erich
Sara Del Rey
In their first meeting since their departue, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and his former employee WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair sat down for a non-aired interview. They talked a bit back and forth about the good old days, before the subject eventually became the present.
Vince McMahon stated that there had been a lot of rumours about hatred and such things between McMahon and Flair, but that none of them were true. In fact, Vince McMahon wished Flair good luck and said that if anyone could pull it off it was "The Nature Boy".
Ric Flair thanked him and then went on to let the world know that he is currently working like crazy to make all this possible. He has scouts all over the entire world. He's currently negotiating a TV deal with a well known network station. And he also has some great contacts in the world of Sports Entertainment, which will make it able for him to land some pretty big surprises.

Ric Flair came forward moments ago and informed that he is very close to landing a three months long TV deal, and therefor he will only be offering three months long contracts for whichever superstars decides to sign with Future Wrestling Association. Flair then prodly announced that he had already signed his first three superstars. They are the French team of Sylvan Grenier and René Duprée, and also 3-time Tag Team Champion Paul London.
November 28th, 2009
FWA NEWS! can inform that another two additions has been made to the first ever FWA roster. They are Super Crazy and Scott Garland, best known as Scotty Too Hotty.
November 29th, 2009
FWA NEWS! can proudly announce the hiring of two great free agents. First to sign was former United States Champion and 2-time All American, Orlando Jordan. And the second to sign today was Chris Mordetzky, best known as "The Masterpiece" Chris Masters.

Ealier today FWA NEWS! announced two great signings for the new roster, and now we can proudly announce that Ric Flair himself just moments ago signed the first to female contracts. First to the plate was Sara Del Rey, and next we saw a huge female signing as daughter of WWE Half of Famer Kerry Von Erich, Lacey Von Erich, signed the three month contract.
December 1st, 2009
The news is that Ric Flair and his team has made no less than six new signings the past 48 hours. Ric Flair himself calls it a big step towards what he wants FWA to be. The six signings are as followed:
First, making his way back to big leagues. Former Tag Team Champion Brian Lawler, best known as Grandmaster Sexay.
Second, an intergender duo. He's making his way back to the big scenes, and she chose to sign with FWA after leaving TNA a year ago. Kevin Thorn and Ariel.
The next to be announced is the former 3-time Cruiserweight Champion, Juventud Guerrera.
The fifth to sign was a huge female signing. After leaving WWE in July 2008, she's now back on the big scene. The 2005 WWE Diva Search Winner and Playboy Cover Girl, Ashley Massaro.
And last, the biggest signing yet to be made by Ric Flair. He was expected to sign with TNA, that is until Ric Flair got in touch with him. 2-time World Champion, Rob Van Dam!!
No one? Well I guess, I'll comment. The RVD signing is great (though expected), but I don't think Ashley Massaro is a huge female signing if you ask me.
OOC: Thanks mate And I see Ashley as a huge female signing because ofthe amount of free agent females. No doubt that there's better females out there, but I believe she has a better background being with WWE and all.

Finally Ric Flair could moments ago on a press conference let the world know that Future Wrestling Association as of today has signed a three month TV deal with Sci Fi network, which means that FWA will be taking off were ECW left.
The deal includes one weekly show on Tuesday Nights, and if FWA succedes then there is a possibility of a contract renewal.
All this means that FWA will air for the very first time on January 5th, 2010. And Ric Flair then announced that the weekly show will be called: FWA TiTanium!
December 3, 2009
Ealier today the first FWA television deal was announced. And now the team behind FWA can proudly announce the signing of the Scottish tag team The Highlanders (Rory & Robbie McAllister), and also the 2008 TNA Queen of the Cage, Roxxi.
Slow down with all the news updates as you're going way past the rule of double posting. Some people do updates at the start of their thread, but none post up to 3 times a day. You might as well edit them in if you're going to do that as it's been bumped up a hell of a lot in a short space of time.
December 23, 2009
Moments ago a proud Ric Flair revealed that all signings has been made, all plans has been finalized, and Future Wrestling Association is ready to go! Within the last twenty days they have made some pretty huge signings including superstars like Billy Kidman, Charlie Haas, Vampiro, Cheerleader Melissa and the former Tag Team Champions Sean O'Haire, Chuck Palumbo and Shawn Stasiak.
Flair also announced that a Pay-Per View deal has been made. Flair's plan is to have six Pay-Per Views the first year, but of course he could only make a deal for the first one, as the TV deal is only for three months to begin with.
Flair then wished everyone a merry Christmas and a happy new year, and hoped to see as many as possible as FWA TiTanium debuts on January 5th, 2010.
