Default Save Us: The End Of The Golden Age

Hello one and all. I have found a new lease on BTB life. It's a project that came to me out of nowhere. Where could one start a BTB? What can be rebooked in the history of Professional Wrestling? One would say "The Invasion!", "ECW in WWE!", "TNA being bought out by Vince!", etc. and etc. The two companies I grew up watching as a kid were WWF & WCW. Back in 1995 I watched my first match on WCW Saturday Night and it involved Arn Anderson. My love for Professional Wrestling grew and grew by leaps and bounds during the next couple of years, as friends of mine cooked up fantasy tournaments, cards, and, we'd wrestle each other in the basement (all the while being careful), reanacting maneuvers (to a certain extent) and having the time of our lives!

Wrestling fascinated me so much that I started learning about everything that came before the year 1995, going back to as far back as I could starting with WrestleMania 1. Through the years I picked up on ECW, Japanese wrestling and everything else in between. I hope that those that will read this effort will see how much research was put into this to be as precise as possible and to respect the timeline as best as I can. Surely, this is fantasy, so, a few minor details might have been forgotten, no less.

This BTB starts on April 12th, 1990. We're off the heels of WWF's WrestleMania VI where in the Main Event, Intercontinental Champion the Ultimate Warrior ousted Hulk Hogan for the WWF Championship. Setting in a new era among WWF's top performers. In WCW, their latest PPV was WrestleWar, in which NWA/WCW World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair sucessfully defended his title against Number 1 Challenger and United States Champion Lex Luger. Luger's friend, Sting, who fend off an attack by his former teammates the 4 Horsemen, suffered a knee injury that is still keeping him from the ring as we speak, an injury that could be keeping him away from the ring for at least until the month of July.

This is the diaries of both company, day-by-day. News about both companies will be reported, events, tv shows and the likes will be detailed in full or shorter versions, and, most of all, history will be rewritten. Enjoy!

Welcome to the section. First of all I would like to say that the layout looks amazing as does this thread, the time period and it's potential to stand out amongst the rest. I really hope this is something that you have been working with for a while and not just thrown together, and have plans to make this one stick because I am sure many want to see a retro BTB hanging around the parts.

Again best of luck and I'll definately keep my eye on this one

This looks really, really good and it has a tonne of potential to boot. Genuinely quite excited to see what you do with this. Don't recall a BTB from this time period on these boards before that lasted more than a page but this is unique and I hope you can stick with it, will be keeping a watchful eye on it. Good luck.

He's not new, bro. Anyway, all I've been doing lately is skimming BTB waiting for something new to come up that's fresh. This is old, but fresh. I like it.

EDIT: Er... nevermind.

If you keep this project going, then this could easily be one of the best on the board. I wasn't even alive back then but I've done a whole lot of researching and watching old video tapes of both WCW and WWF and it did seem to be a great time to be a wrestling fan in general. Hopefully you live up to that and provide two exciting, fresh and different products. Good luck!

Great era to use and like the look of both rosters. Looking forward to the first show or so, just hope you can keep it up doing both shows for both companies. I pressume you will just be doing the main big show for each brand and will PPVS run on the same day or different time of the months?

Thank you all thus far for all the positive comments and interest in this new thread of mine. DeanToon, I will be doing the main shows in full and all that's 1 hour tv shows in short. As time evolves, tv shows might become more than what they were back then, but that's way down the line. Thak you to the rest of you for your feedback, so, here goes, my first official post in this new thread. Enjoy!

THURSDAY, APRIL 12th, 1990:
WCW Officials have put under contract a young Canadian wrestler by the name of Chris Benoit; wrestling under a mask in Japan under the guise of Pegasus Kid. WCW Officials are also looking to emulate their Japanese counterparts by introducing a Junior Heavyweight division in the future. Benoit is set to complete his tour with New Japan Pro Wrestling by May.

Really looking good here Legend. Hope to see some good stuff out of this thread, as it was around this time from (really early 90s) that I started watching.
