Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff Present: Elite Wrestling League

So, this is my second BTB. I ended my first one, TNA Wrestling: The Alternative, because I really didn't have enough to keep it up. But, with Summer coming up I have a lot more time to devote to this thing, so here we go.

I'm starting with a clean slate and I'm doing a created fed. I had a couple other projects already started, but I think this one will be the best. The backstory starts now and I will add more and more to it until I get to the first show.

Part 1: The Seed Is Planted:

It’s a regular Sunday afternoon, nothing special going on, just sun decorating the sky and wind gently parading about. Wrestling personality Eric Bischoff sits in a large office chair surrounded by papers and wrestling memorabilia. He hesitates before slowly dialing a number into his cell phone. He hesitates because he doesn’t quite know how to do what he’s about to do; but, he knows it needs to be done. Before he can put the words he wants to say together in his head, his phone call is answered.

???? : Hello?

Bischoff is taken aback by the quickness of the answer.

Eric: …Ric?

Ric: Yeah?

The voice on the other end is none other than WWE Hall of Famer and 16 Time World Heavyweight Champion, Ric Flair.

Eric: Ric! This is Bischoff, how’s it goin’?

The “Dirtiest Player in the Game” and “ATM Eric” catch up for a few minutes, chatting about old memories from WCW and WWE, and even Ric’s recent appearances in WWE…That is until the conversation turns to something much more interesting, current (and possibly future) business ventures.

Ric: So, enough about me, what are you up to?

Eric: Well Ric, that’s actually why I called. Ya see I know you want to get back into the business. You’ve got the itch, and I can’t really blame you because I’m getting it too.

Ric: (Sounding interested) Oh…

Eric: It’s just that…I worked with Terry on Celebrity Championship Wrestling for a few months, and that was a blast. But, it got me thinking…thinking about…maybe…

Ric: What?

Eric: I wanna start my own promotion.

Ric: Wow. That sounds like a great idea Eric, but where are you gonna start?

Eric: Well, that’s why I called you. I know you wanna get back into the business, but I know you have too much respect for WWE and the way you went out to just hop into any random little promotion.

Ric: Yeah…

Eric: So I was thinking that since we both wanna get back in the business, and we both have plenty of connections to make this thing happen, we could…I dunno...go into business together.

Ric: (Sits silently for a second, mulling it over in his head) Yano Eric…I like what I’m hearing…

The two go on to brainstorm for hours, discussing things like wrestlers to bring in, networks to host the TV shows, names of events, and any other thing they could get into about this new venture. Before the end of the conversation a business meeting is set and each man has more than a few phone calls to make.

-------------

There you have it, the early stages are started. After a few replies I'll be back with an update.

NOT REMOVING UNTIL:
All my unrealistic expectations of WWE and TNA are met...or I can actually get the ball rolling on a BTB project whichever comes first!

Re: Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff Present: Elite Wrestling League

Good to see you back, Crunk. I was a fan of your last thread, so I hope you bring the same level of talent to this one, and I'm sure you will. Things are off to a great start here, and I'm looking forward to the next update. Good luck.

Re: Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff Present: Elite Wrestling League

Looks pretty good, Crunk, a promotion being run by Flair and Bischoff sounds great, sounds like Szumi's WCW but this is a fantasy promotion so it's different, and hopefully you can do well with this. I'll keep reading this, can't wait for the next update.

Re: Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff Present: Elite Wrestling League

Thank you all for all the positive feedback so far. Storylines are being planned, and the show is being written as I type this. (Well, not as I type this, because right now I'm typing this and not the show...but you know what I mean!)

Part 2: The Business Meeting:

A long limousine pulls up to the Flair home in Charlotte, North Carolina. The driver steps out, makes his way around the huge black automobile, and journeys to the back door. He pulls the handle, and Eric Bischoff emerges from the vehicle wearing a tan suit jacket and carrying a briefcase full of ideas. He is welcomed inside and into the office of “The Nature Boy”.

Ric: So, what have ya’ got?

Eric: Well, remember how we talked about needing some big name talent?

Ric: Yeah…

Eric: Vince must have our phones tapped, because he just did us two huge favors.

Ric: What do you mean?

Eric: You haven’t heard? Ken Anderson and Eddie Fatu just got released, not even a month ago.

Ric: Really?

Eric: Yeah. I dunno about you Ric, but I think we could have our first two signings right there.

Ric: You think they’d be on board?

Eric: Why wouldn’t they? They have talent and need work...we have work and need talent.

Ric: You don’t think TNA’ll snatch ‘em up?

Eric: Ric…have you seen TNA lately? No offence to Jeff, but it’s a mess over there. We could probably take half of their guys with little effort whatsoever.

Ric: Ok, so Ken Anderson, Eddie Fatu…who else?

Eric: Well, if we’re looking at free agents there’s a ton. But I wanna start off with a bang.

Ric: Well…lemme have it.

Eric: Well… (pulls a picture out of his briefcase and hands it to Flair) I think he would be a fantastic addition to our roster.

Ric: (flabbergasted) But isn’t he in UFC?

Eric: Yeah….your point?

Ric: (Smiles) That’s why I like you Eric, you think big.

Eric: You have to think big to be big Ric. Just like to be the man…

Ric: …You gotta beat the man! WHOOO!

The two share a laugh before getting back to business.

Ric: Okay, so there’s three…any other ideas?

Eric: Well, I called this guy. (Hands Flair a picture from his briefcase)

Ric: Oh you did?

Eric: Now, I know he’s still with WWE. But honestly, they haven’t used him in months and he's been way to generous to them over the years. It's time we gave him a fresh start, I mean, the guy’s got talent if you give him a chance.

Ric: Oh yeah…

Eric: And TNA has this guy… (Hands Flair another picture).

Ric: I’ve heard about him.

Eric: He’s good. He’s really good. But right now they have him doing this God-awful gimmick, and they’re basically wasting him. I have a feeling if we get in touch with him he won’t be hard to persuade.

Ric: Well Eric, sounds like we got a great start on talent. How about TV?

Eric: I made some calls and I think I have us a deal….are you ready for this?

Ric: Lay it on me.

Eric: I think I have us a deal…with Fox!

Ric: Wow! How the heck did you manage that?

Eric: It wasn’t easy. They were a little weary about the whole “’rasslin’” thing, but I assured them that the emphasis would be on the talent and not any wild stories. I told ‘em to think of it as just another one of their sports, like NASCAR or NFL football. Plus dropping a name like “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair was a major plus.

Ric: (Stands up) Eric… (Extends his hand) That’s why you’re the best.

The two shake hands, sealing the creation of their new wrestling promotion.
---------------------------

There it is, part 2. I had the names of the wrestlers they were talking about typed into the story, but I decided to replace them with Eric showing Flair pictures, just to build the suspence.

NOT REMOVING UNTIL:
All my unrealistic expectations of WWE and TNA are met...or I can actually get the ball rolling on a BTB project whichever comes first!
