Default PCW: Where Tradition Meets the Future


PRO CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING
Tradition meets the Future


March 2001:
World Championship Wrestling is purchased by World Wrestling Federation. Many of the WCW Superstars were left without contracts and futures in the wrestling business. Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Sting, Goldberg, and Macho Man were all under contract with AOL Time Warner and were unable to get out of their contracts. Wrestling fans were left with one wrestling promotion.


May 2001:
Three Wrestling Legends got together; The American Dream Dusty Rhodes, Jimmy Hart, and Rowdy Roddy Piper. They discussed the possibility of creating a new wrestling company, one that would revolutionize the business by bringing it back to the tradition it once had. The three wrestling legends would come up with the funding and sponsorships needed to create Pro Championship Wrestling.

June 2001:
Pro Championship Wrestling was officially created June 2, 2001 with the idea that legends from Wrestling's Past would work with the Future Stars of the Business. The concept for the company was that it would produce a weekly television episode every Saturday Night because that's where Wrestling Belongs. The company would produce 6 pay-per-views a year as opposed to 12 currently produced by WWF, and previously by WCW. PCW was going to focus it's efforts on the PG demographic. The trio purchase old wrestling sets auctioned off by the WWF, and started to work towards their goal. Getting the company up and running for Saturday, January 5, 2001.


July 2001:
PCW acquired some of WCW former talent. AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, Elix Skipper, Kid Kash, Juventud Guerrera, Rey Mysterio, Psychosis, Billy Kidman, and Vampiro all signed with PCW for 18 month $75,000 contracts; bringing a strong cruiserweight contingent to the company. Buff Bagwell, Scott Steiner, Lex Luger, and Curt Henning signed on for 18 month $250,000 contracts. While the company found more funding Mean Gene Oakerlund, Bobby Heenan, Ken Shamrock, and Johnny B. Badd signed similar contracts. The company was looking to be in great shape for the first few months.

August 2001:
Dusty Rhodes agreed to take on the creative writing department of PCW, writing the shows and pay-per-views. Rowdy Piper was to head the organization as the commissioner while Jimmy Hart continued to take care of talent relations. The trio brought Eric Bischoff into the company as the Executive Producer for their shows. Bischoff would also work behind the scenes with the creative department, but wouldn't have a role in the control of the company. They booked a set of tapings for Orlando Studios and went to work on taping footage for their promotional packages.


September 2001:
After sending their packages out and pitching the concept to several different networks and being turned down; PCW finally made one more proposal. They sat down with the executives of NBC and pitched their concept. With NBC being the official home of Saturday Night's Main Event for years, the network owned the rights to The Main Event. They loved the idea of bringing Professional Wrestling back to their network and gave PCW 10 90-minute shows starting January 5, 2002 as a test run for the company. Furthermore, NBC agreed to purchase the contracts of Randy Savage, Sting, Hulk Hogan, and Ric Flair from AOL Time Warner. Things were looking very well for PCW; the roster was looking good, they were given the green light to go on their wrestling shows. Now they just have to worry about selling out arenas and building their programming.

Tradition meets the Future


October 2001:
PCW finally has a network to air their shows, an all-star talent roster, and a start date, the next thing required was a venue for their show. For this, the trio scouted a number of different arenas around the U.S.A and finally decided on the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, a 9000 seat venue could easily be filled for the event. The start time for the show was set for 5:30pm, this would allow the team to get the footage ready for the 9:30 P.M. air time with all NBC Networks. A huge media campaign started in Nashville which included a press conference featuring Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and Macho Man, as well as Dusty Rhodes, and Jimmy Hart. That morning 4,000 tickets were sold.


November 2001:
Following the early success of the first day of ticket sales, the team announced locations for their following shows. Charlotte, North Carolina, Athens, Georgia, Daytona, Florida, Petosky, Michigan, and Detroit, Michigan. The media campaigns continued with wrestlers from PCW making special appearances for each of the events.

December 2001:
PCW launched their website PCW.com and filled it with their promotional package, the talent roster, upcoming events, and commercial spots for their NBC Programming. A lot of hype was building for the upstart company as wrestling websites and radio programs speculated what this company was all about. In retaliation to the promotion, Vince McMahon announced a special live edition of WWE Monday Night Raw to air on Saturday, January 5, 2002. RAW SATURDAY NIGHT was to air from 9:00 to 12:00 on TNN. What's going to happen in the Saturday Night War between the legends of wrestling and Vince McMahon...

Pro Championship Wrestling
Main Event
January 5, 2001


A Video Package Plays:

Voice: Tonight is the night that old becomes new again
Images of an earlier Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, and Dusty Rhodes followed by current images
Voice: When new stars are born
Images of AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, and Rey Mysterio (masked)
Voice: And champions are crowned...
Voice: Tonight is the night that Wrestling returns, welcome to the MAIN EVENT.


“How You Remind Me” by Nickel Back plays as the theme to the Main Event with images of Hulk Hogan, Sting, Ric Flair, AJ Styles, Buff Bagwell, Lex Luger, Curt Henning, Road Warriors, and Rey Mysterio (masked) being shown.

The pyro display goes off in the Nashville Municipal Auditorium as about 8000 fans cheer at the top of their lungs. Everything with PCW very simple and traditional; the entrance way is a curtain with two PCW logos on either side (similar to the original nitro set) above the entrance curtain are three video screens for fans to see what’s going on. The ring has black and red tape on the ropes and the middle of the ring has the logo. Jeremy Borash is sitting at the broadcast desk by the entrance way.

JB “Welcome everyone to Pro Championship Wrestling’s Main Event! Here on NBC. I’m JB Jeremy Borash here. Please help me in welcoming my broadcast colleague, the legendary...JERRY THE KING LAWLER!!!!”

“Great Gate of Kiev” plays and Jerry Lawler comes out to a huge ovation from the Tennessee crowd. The King is accompanied by the Cat who heads to the ring area. Lawler puts his head phones on and starts talking with JB.

JB “What and honour it is to be broadcasting some of the greatest wrestling matches with an all-time great like you King.”

King “Well JB, I must say that the pleasure is all yours. It’s great to be the King and even better to be a part of one of the industry’s most historic nights. Tonight wrestling returns to Saturday Nights, where it belongs, and I can’t wait to get this show started.”

JB “We have an exciting night in store for fans here in Nashville and all of our fans watching at home on NBC. Tonight in action we’re going to see four great matches. Our elite division takes flight with AJ Styles squaring off against another great wrestler, Billy Kidman. It’s the battle of the Styles Clash and the Shooting Star Press tonight.”

King “Plus Buff Bagwell will be here tonight to square off against Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner, James Storm, and Curt Henning in a four corners match.”

JB “Representing our Legends tonight is the Nature Boy Ric Flair and Rowdy Roddy Piper teaming up against Hulk Hogan and the Macho Man Randy Savage.”

King “That alone is an exciting match, but let’s not forget another tag team match, Marty Jannetty and a mystery partner going up against the Nasty Boys. Now if my sources are correct, which they normally are, the mystery man is doink the clown”

JB “Doink the Clown?”

King “Yes, because that’s exactly what Jannetty is... he’s a clown!”

JB “Let’s send things to the ring with David Penzer for the opening contest”

David Penzer introduces the opening contest as a one fall contest with a 10 Minute Time Limit.

“I Am Phenomenal” plays as AJ Styles enters the arena.

Phenomenal AJ Styles vs. Billy Kidman
The young AJ Styles squares off against Billy Kidman in the opening contest for PCW’s Main Event. This high flying collision has the two of them diving off the ropes, the turnbuckles, the ring steps, and the steel guard rails. AJ sends Kidman to the outside with a huge Hurricanrana and follows up with a springboard off the top rope. After both men put their bodies on the line, it’s Kidman who nails his finisher first. The Shooting Star Press off the top rope makes its mark on AJ, but when Andrew Thomas makes the count, Styles is able to kick out. AJ gets to his feet and drops Kidman with the Styles Clash. AJ rolls him up for the win.
AJ STYLES WINS via PINFALL at 6:43

After the match, AJ Styles celebrates his first victory ever in Pro Championship Wrestling when he is interrupted by Christopher Daniels.

Daniels “What a great job AJ, you truly are Phenomenal, but there’s one problem. You are not the top guy in the Elite Division. I am. I am the man who’s going to put PCW on the map because I am Christopher Daniels. I am the Fallen Angel, and you’re being put on notice that I’m going to take you to hell and back before you know it.”

Daniels drops the microphone and the two of them exchange words.

2 Minute COMMERCIAL BREAK

Back in the Arena, Mean Gene Oakerlund stands.

Gene “I hope everyone here in Tennessee, and the fans watching at home on NBC are enjoying the first Main Event. At this time, please join me in welcoming the Honky Tonk Man.

“Cool, Cocky, and Bad” plays as the Honky Tonk Man comes out with Jimmy Hart. The two of them chat with Mean Gene about how he’s still the greatest wrestler in the world today, and how there are all these rip-offs of him from Jeff Jarrett, to BG James being a roadie, to the Little Richard play off of Johnny B. Badd. There is only one Honky Tonk Man and only one Jimmy Hart and they’re here in PCW. The interview is interrupted when Jeff Jarrett comes out and confronts the Honky Tonk Man. They exchange words with each other about copying each other. Greg Valentine comes from behind and hits Jeff Jarrett with a guitar. The three of them leave Jarrett on the ground as they head to the backstage area.

2 Minute COMMERCIAL BREAK

Some might know who their opponent is while others will find out that night. Stipulations can be added by the luck of a draw. It is going to be very unpredictable.

David Penzer announces the next contest

“We’re The Boys” plays as Jimmy Hart leads Knobs and Sags out to the ring for their tag team match.

Marty Jannetty’s partner is BG James.

Nasty Boys w. Jimmy Hart vs. Marty Jannetty and BG James
The veteran tag team of Knobs and Sags dominate Jannetty and James as Jimmy Hart barks orders on the outside of the ring. They send James into Pitty City and follow through with double teaming him while Jannetty looks on. The match is interrupted when Scott Hall and Kevin Nash come down to the ring. Hall and Nash clean house with James and Jannetty, leading to Slick Johnson calling for the bell
JANETTY AND BG JAMES WIN via DQ at 3:32

The Outsiders continue to beat down Jannetty when “the Rockers” remix theme plays. Shawn Michaels debuts in PCW and hits the Sweet Chin Music on Hall and Nash. The Rockers have reunited in the ring as fans in Nashville cheer heavily. Michaels reforming his tag team with Marty Jannetty is the biggest secret kept by PCW up to this point. Hall and Nash promise to get revenge on the Rockers.

Backstage, Big Poppa Pump talks about being the top dog in Pro Championship Wrestling. Tonight he’s going to prove that when he takes on Buff Bagwell, Curt Henning, and James Storm in a Four Corner’s Match.

2 Minute COMMERCIAL BREAK

Mean Gene Oakerlund is backstage with Hulk Hogan and Randy Macho Man Savage. The two of them are wearing they’re red and yellow and talk about bringing the Mega Powers back to Wrestling. Hogan continues to talk about PCW being the premier organization now with the most elite athletes in the world; hyping the performances of AJ Styles and Billy Kidman earlier on in the show. Savage mentions that it’s time for the old dogs to go out and show the world that they still have what it takes to ride with the young guys of Pro Championship Wrestling...Dig It!

Inside the ring, David Penzer is ready to introduce the next contest.

“Also Sprach Zarathustra” plays as Ric Flair comes out. His pyro goes off and the 16 Time World Champion styles and profiles his way down to the ring.

“Scottish Soldier” is the next to play as Rowdy Roddy Piper comes out. The two of them get in the ring and start cutting a promo.

Piper “I can’t believe that after all this time, I still have to team up with you. There is nobody I hate more in this business than you Flair.”

Flair “Listen Piper, I’ve never like you either. But, I have respect for you. I don’t have respect for Hogan or Savage.”

Piper “I don’t either. In fact I do hate Hulk Hogan more than I hate you.”

Flair “You haven’t done me any harm, all you do is go around with that stupid looking SKIRT...”

Piper “It’s called a Kilt”

Flair “I don’t care what you call it, your daughter wore one of those to bed last night, but I took it off her within five seconds... WOOOOO”

Piper “You think that’s funny Flair? I DON’T THINK YOU’RE TOO FUNNY!!!!”

Flair “I wasn’t trying to be. No matter what you or anyone else says around here, I’m Ric Flair, and I’m still the man. Whether you like it or don’t, learn to love it. Diamonds will ALWAYS be forever, and so will the NATURE BOY WOOOOO”

“American Made” plays as Hulk Hogan comes out to a roaring crowd. Fans get on their feet as the Icon of Profession Wrestling makes his way through pyro and down to the ring.

“Pomp and Circumstance” plays as Randy Macho Man Savage is the last person to come down to the ring. He stops half way and points back to the entrance. Miss Elizabeth emerges and once again for nostalgia, fans erupt for a huge ovation. The Mega Powers enter the ring together with Elizabeth leading the charge.

Rowdy Roddy Piper and Ric Flair vs. Hulk Hogan and Macho Man w. Miss ElizabethSavage and Flair lock up in the middle of the ring for this classic confrontation. The two of them fight back and forth before Flair sends Savage to the ground with a hip toss. The Nature Boy exchanges words with Liz on the outside than continues to beat down on the Macho Man. Hogan watches on as Piper and Flair double team Savage in the corner. Hogan attempts to get involved, but referee Slick Johnson holds him back, allowing Piper and Flair time to inflict more damage. Piper puts a sleeper on Savage in the middle of the ring. After several moments, the Macho Man is able to get up and fight out of the sleeper. Piper is whipped across the ring, and sent to the canvas with a back body drop. The Macho Man finally tags Hogan in. Hulk cleans house with both Flair and Piper, then starts posing for the Nashville crowd. “The place is going bananas” as Gorilla Monsoon would say as Hogan starts getting fired up. The Mega Powers make a huge comeback. Flair pokes Hogan in the eye, stopping his momentum then starts beating down on the Hulkster once again. The dirtiest player in the game slaps the figure four on Hogan right in the center of the ring. Hogan yells in pain, but starts to hear the “Hogan” chants. Hogan counters the Figure Four and puts Flair in it. Soon the hold is removed and all the wrestlers start brawling in the ring. Piper is punched hard in the head and flies over the top rope and onto the floor. Hogan and Savage double team the Nature Boy. Hogan hits the big boot on him, and follows through with a leg drop. Savage dives off the top rope with a Flying Elbow Drop. The Macho Man hooks the legs of Flair for the 1...2...3.
The MEGA POWERS WIN via PINFALL at 7:01

After the match, Hogan and Savage are attacked from behind by Lex Luger. The Total Package beats down both men in the middle of the ring before being joined by Ric Flair and Rowdy Piper. The three on two assaults continues until the lights go out in the arena. When the lights come back on, The Icon Sting is standing in the ring. Sting nails everyone with his baseball bat, clearing the ring. Sting and Flair point to each other as we head to our next commercial break.

Default Re: PCW: Where Tradition Meets the Future

WRESTLING NEWS CENTER
January 7, 2002

Both Pro Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Federation held broadcasts this past Saturday, going head to head in the very first Saturday Night War.

PCW announced in September it's new Saturday Night Wrestling Broadcast. Partnering with NBC, the company's premier of The MAIN EVENT aired from Nashville, Tennessee. The premier edition of the 90 minute show provided fans with the opportunity to relive some nostalgic moments they haven't seen in a while. The company's first show was successful in building the traditional styles of wrestling while providing younger talent with the opportunity to excel. This couldn't be more apparent than with the AJ Styles/Billy Kidman match that opened the show. The two superstars squared off in an amazing acrobatic, high flying, death defying match that truly stole the show for the rest of the night. Fans also had the opportunity to see Hulk Hogan and the Macho Man return to action as the Mega Powers. The most shocking turn of events came with the debut of Shawn Michaels. Michaels has been out of action since 1998 with a back injury. The Former WWF Champion has been long forgotten ever since. Many believed Michaels would never return, but few hoped that when he came back, it would be a historic return to the WWF. That was not the case however. The Heart Break Kid returned to wrestling in the new promotion, coming to the aid of his long time friend, Marty Jannetty. Although production may not have been to the level of WWF, the show itself created a buzz and set a precidence for what the company is all about.

Meanwhile, the WWF retaliate by offering fans a 3 hour live edition of RAW. "RAW SATURDAY" was conceived by WWF executives as a way of knocking their opponents out of the water before they even started. The three hour edition of RAW found more of the same storylines that have been building upon with the Mick Foley/Vince McMahon fight over control of the company, to more Diva wars between Teri and Trish. The highlight of RAW was the return of Triple H. WWF's attempts at blocking PCW's show from being successful failed. RAW started off with a strong 4.3 Rating for the first quarter, but than significantly dropped to a 3.6 by the end of their first hour. The second hour of RAW found the ratings drop even lower to a 3.2 rating while PCW's Main Event went to a 2.9 rating. The final hour of RAW went back up to a 4.0 after PCW went off the air.

It's safe to say that overall, PCW was more successful in the first of the Saturday Night Wars. It will be interesting to see if WWF attempts to retaliate once again. One thing is for sure, expect PCW's Main Event to rise next week in the ratings when they are left uncontested by the WWF.

Review:
Interesting introduction with JB and The King. I think the two of them would actually be a very good broadcast team. You did a great job in making some chemistry between the two of them. Surprised that you haven't had someone like Piper, Rhodes or Jimmy Hart coming out for an introduction, you just go right to the action.

AJ vs. Kidman - Great opening contest with two amazing crusierweights. This would have really been a great opening match for the Main Event. I like the fall out with Christopher Daniels coming out and talking smack about AJ. I'm looking forward to seeing the outcome of that.

The Honky Tonk Man interview being interupted by Jeff Jarrett. I think the feud between Honky Tonk Man and Jeff Jarrett may be a yawn, but at least you're using them.

Great Hype for Lethal Lottery; it should be a good ppv.

Nasty Boys vs. Marty Jannetty/BG James - I figured that you might have Shawn Michaels return to wrestle that match, but am happy to see Shawn come out afterwards. I don't know if Michaels would have actually jumped ship instead of heading back to WWF if he could, but hey it still works. I hope we see the Rockers vs. Outsiders.

Flair/Piper vs. Mega Powers - Very interested considering I don't think Savage would have wanted to team with Hogan ever again. Great work with Piper and Flair before the match, and with the aftermath. I can see Luger wanting Liz back and Sting coming down to make the save. Great work incorportating everyone.

Main Event - Good Mainevent, nothing special though. I'm glad to see Scott Steiner come out on top. Nice image of the World Titles.

Good little show overall, I look forward to reading more. You have some nice hype going on and I think the show did a great job in making wrestling feel "special" again.

Pro Championship Wrestling
Main Event
January 12, 2002


“How You Remind Me” by Nickel Back plays as the theme to the Main Event with images of Hulk Hogan, Sting, Ric Flair, AJ Styles, Buff Bagwell, Lex Luger, Curt Henning, Road Warriors, and Rey Mysterio (masked) being shown.

The pyro display goes off in the Stegeman Coliseum in Athens, Georgia as about 7500 fans cheer at the top of their lungs. Jeremy Borash is sitting at the broadcast desk by the entrance way with his broadcast colleague, Jerry THE KING Lawler.

JB “Welcome everyone to another exciting edition of The Main Event. We are coming to you tonight from the Stegemen Coliseum in Anthens, Georgia. I’m JB Jeremy Borash here along with my colleague, Jerry “The King” Lawler.”

King “Last week was one of the most exciting, and historic events I’ve ever witnessed in professional wrestling; we watched as Shawn Michaels returned to pro wrestling and joined his partner Marty Jannetty in the ring. The over 40 Rockers have returned to wrestling once again. It makes me sick!”

JB “We also watched as the young AJ Styles defeated Billy Kidman in the ring. Tonight we’re going to be treated to another special contest as Christopher Daniels squares off against Rey Mysterio Junior.”

King “The Mega Powers also reunited last week, but their victory over Flair and Piper were short-lived however when Lex Luger attacked them from behind. Tonight we’re going to see another great contest. Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair will square off to crown the UNIVERSIAL HEAVYWEIGHT WRESTLING CHAMPION.”

JB “Speaking about champions, last week Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner won the 4 corners match to become the new World Heavyweight Champion. Tonight we will hear what he has to say about his title reign. But we’re going to get tonight’s show started right now.”


David Penzer introduces the first contest of the night, scheduled for 1 fall with a 10 minute time limit.

Jeff Jarrett vs. Ken Shamrock
The world’s most dangerous man makes his return to the ring for the contest. Ken Shamrock powers over Jeff Jarrett in the opening moments of the match, but the Chosen One fights back with a series of rights. Jarrett whips Shamrock across the ring and drives a knee straight into his mid section. An abdominal stretch is put on Shamrock in the middle of the ring. Shamrock counters out with a hip toss to the ground and follows through with a German Suplex. Shamrock and Jarrett continue their fight in the ring. Jarrett slaps the figure four on Shamrock in the middle of the ring. Shamrock taps out, but the referee is distracted by the Jimmy Hart on the outside. With the referee’s back turned, the Honky Tonk Man uses the megaphone to nail Jarrett in the side of the head. HTM leaves the ring with Jimmy Hart, and Shamrock rolls over Jarrett for the pin.

Inside the ring, a siren goes off and red flashing light streams around the arena. Big Poppa Pump comes out to the crowd with his new World Heavyweight Championship. Fans in Georgia give Big Poppa Pump a huge ovation as he climbs into the ring with his shiny new belt. Scott Steiner asks for the microphone.

Scott “The Big Bad Booty Daddy is in the house... It’s clear to me that I am the best damn wrestler in this company. I am the man who has dominated everyone who has ever stepped in my way. Now, I stand as the World Heavyweight Champion, nothing is better than this... Last week I defeated four of the company’s best wrestlers to become the champion, and I challenge anyone who thinks they have what it takes to take my belt away.”
“Buff Daddy” plays as Buff Bagwell comes out to the ring. Fans give Bagwell a mixed reaction as he is handed a microphone from David Penzer.

Buff “Excuse me Scotty, did you say that you beat everyone last week?”

Scott “Yes I did.”

Buff “It seems to me that you didn’t beat me. I was eliminated by James Storm. In fact, going back in our past I don’t think you’ve EVER defeated me!”

Scott and Buff get in each other’s face.

Scott “I can beat you from here to New York City, and back.”

Buff “I’d like to see you try Scotty. You don’t have what it takes to take me out.”


Just as the two of them were about to fight, they are interrupted by Ken Shamrock. The World’s Most Dangerous Man comes out to the ring with his own microphone and addresses the two of them.

Ken “Boys, it’s clear that neither of you are the best because you’ve never had to face me. People call me the World’s Most Dangerous Man for a reason, because I AM! I can beat any of you, in any type of match, at any given time. Scott Steiner, you may have the World Title, but until you face me you will never truly be the best!”

Steiner turns to face Ken Shamrock when he is nailed from behind by Buff Bagwell. Bagwell and Shamrock double team the World Champion in the ring. Shamrock holds Steiner up as Bagwell nails him with the World Title. Big Poppa Pump is left bleeding as Bagwell holds the title high in the air.
