Quote:
~ Reports coming from sources close to WGPX have recently surfaced, stating that the company plans to do a massive overhaul on it's current roster to, as one reporter called it "trim the fat," so to speak. This can only mean that certain workers will either be delegated back to the Ring of Honor developmental territory, or [the more likely of scenarios] certain competitors will be cut from their contracts. Of the more notable names on this list, SAMOA JOE and KURT ANGLE are indeed reaching the conclusion of their contracts with Wrestling Grand Prix.

~ In correlation with these reports, rumors have surfaced that Grand Prix talent scouts have been in discussion with former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, QUINTON 'RAMPAGE' JACKSON, which could possibly be the true motive for the company trimming down on it's payroll.

~ TIM DONST has apparently recovered from the elbow injury he suffered two months ago after a very successful surgery. WGPX has relegated him to a two-week stint in ROH before officially returning him back to the main level of competition.

~ As we reported yesterday, HIROSHI TANAHASHI will be facing CHRIS JERICHO in a highly anticipated main event, but earlier today, we received word from CEO BOB BACKLUND himself that another huge match has been planned for this weekend's edition of Grand Prix TV, as we look forward to seeing the teams of AKIRA TOZAWA & MI RAI competing against CODY RHODES & BAD INTENTIONS in a Grand Prix Trios Match. Can this Saturday get any better!?

~ The results for the 2011 Grand Prix Awards are to be announced next Sunday on January 29th through the promotion's website, Grandprix.com. Up for grabs are the most valuable prizes in the company, including 'Most Valuable Wrestler' and 'Champion of the Year.'

Cyberstrike
- Jan. 25th, 2012
Anaheim, California - Honda Center



~ A video begins tonight's production with an in-depth look into the finish of the Triangle tag team match for the WGPX World Tag Team Championships, where the team of Mi Rai [CIMA and KENTA] came out victorious with a very crafty Superkick / Go 2 Sleep combination finisher.

~ The normal Cyberstrike video package now cuts over the feed before it, ensuring us what we all already knew - it's time.

~ The always engaging tandem of William Regal and Don West are on hand to welcome us to tonight's festivities, live, available only to paying Netflix and Youtube subscribers. West reminds us that tonight's main event will feature Nigel McGuinness defending his WGPX Pure Championship against the likes of TAKA Michinoku...


MATCH #1 - KENTA w/ CIMA vs. Bulldog Hart w/ Stampede Kid

Quote:
KENTA offers up a handshake, but the 'dog wants none of it, as he quickly grapples one half of the tag team champions a long the shoulders. Hart soon makes it a test of strength and will as he throws Kobayashi all over the ring. Unfortunately, Bulldog Hart becomes lax in his offensive, missing his millionth clothesline before KENTA greets him with a beautiful Busaiku Knee Kick. Hart, dazed and all sorts of confused, practically collapses against the turnbuckle. KENTA catches him for a schoolboy pin, but Stampede Kick! The little scamp grabs a hold of Hart's foot [without our referee doing his job and seeing anything whatsoever] placing it on top of the rope, subsequently breaking the pin! KENTA runs to the other side of the ring, he's going for some form of a plancha! NO! BIG BOOT from Bulldog Hart! Hart makes the cover, pressing the heel of his right boot squarely down on the chest of KENTA.. and he gets the three!
Result ~ Bulldog Hart wins via pin w/ Big Boot
Time ~ 5:23


~ CIMA chases into the ring, Hart's got him by the throat! He throws him like a rag doll into the corner! Hart's approaching.. he's going for the Camel Clutch! The ref's trying to stop him, CIMA with an elbow - SCHWEIN STEINER!!! The crowd's going nuts! CIMA slides out of the ring, dragging out the belts, and, eventually, his tag team partner.

~ We cut back to the locker rooms where World's Greatest Tag Team are sitting in frustration. Haas punches a locker door, revealing to Benjamin that he doesn't sit well with losing, particularly in the fashion reminiscent of last night's show. Haas says it's up to Benjamin tonight to prove that WGTT still has what it takes, apparently signalling that Shelton will be active in the ring soon. He nods his head, pats Charlies' shoulder then exits the room.

~ There's a quick commercial featuring an advertisement for Grand Prix's next upcoming PPV, WGPX PRIDE & GLORY. 12 men will compete in the Pride & Glory Series which will conclude at this very event, the final 4 competing against one another in the night's main event for the right to choose any champion of their choosing.


MATCH #2 - Shelton Benjamin vs. Toru Yano

Quote:
Regal puts over Benjamin, commenting that he's one of the hardest workers in the business today, as West mentions of Yano's roots in New Japan Pro Wrestling. The referee asks both men to hit hands [as is customary] but neither man budges. After a fairly long amount of grappling and trading reversals to dictate the pace of the contest, Yano finally shoots for a leg hook. Benjamin keeps his guard up front, catches Yano by the shoulders, then lands an Arm Trap Backbreaker. Shelton pulls him back up, whips him into the corner - Stinger Splash! The crowd pops as Benjamin stomps his foot to the mat, SUPERKICK - No! URAGASUMI! Yano with the cover! But Shelton gets the shoulder up! Yano lifts him up for the Canadian Backbreaker Rake! One! TWO! Benjamin slips off! Yano turns around - SUPERKICK! Shelton with a Belly to Belly Suplex for good measure... hooks the leg for a three to much applause from this ramped up audience in Anaheim!

Result
~ Shelton Benjamin wins via pin w/ Superkick
Time ~ 6:02


~ After a quick celebration from Shelton Benjamin, both Regal and West inform us that we're taking a quick break for some much needed advertising.

~ A vignette airs hyping up the Chris Jericho / Hiroshi Tanahashi match that will take place this Saturday on Grand Prix TV. Both competitors are interviewed, asked about their respective intentions going into the contest. Jericho says he has to prove that his win at Millenium Battle wasn't just a fluke, and that he's the real deal. Tanahashi speaks in his native Japanese, as subtitles appear on the screen relaying his message that last Sunday, Kurt Angle got the better of him, but he's still a warrior to be feared within the squared circle.

~ Cody Rhodes conducts a backstage interview with David Penzer, gloating about how his win last night against Akira Tozawa absolutely stole the show. Rhodes told Penzer what he had to do before the match, and that's exactly what the young man did.

~ William Regal and Don West welcome us back, reminding us that this will be the main event for tonight's show, before also remind us that McGuinness has gone almost a month without defending his WGPX Pure Championship.


MAIN EVENT - Nigel McGuinness © vs. TAKA Michinoku
- Pure Championship

Quote:
Before the bell rings, our referee brings McGuinness and Michinoku to the center in a sign of sportsmanship. Nigel withdrawals his title, hands it over to the referee.. before landing a closed-fist punch to the head of TAKA! The ref tosses the belt to the side, signals for the bell! Regal comments on how crafty Nigel's move was, reminding our viewers that closed-fist punches are illegal in a Pure Wrestling match (aside from a first punch warning.) Michinoku is taken back, thrown up against the ropes as Nigel connects with a series of chops and knee lifts to the midsection! TAKA is obviously taken off guard, and this works to the advantage of McGuinness, as he continues working Michinoku down. Hammerlock into an STO! Michinoku exhausts his first rope break, the ref motioning for Nigel to break the hold.

The champion proceeds to work down TAKA further with a series of slams and various holds, until motioning for TAKA to stand back up.. JAWBREAKER LARIAT! McGuinness hooks the leg! NO! Michinoku uses another rope break! Nigel is in disbelief, his eyes are growing bigger. He rolls Michinoku up for the London Dungeon, he applies the leg grapevine.. but Michinoku rolls out and reverses with the HEAVY KILLER #1! Here comes the Rana Pin! McGUINESS ROLLS OUT! Cross chop to the throat! Michinoku turns around, clutching at his wind pipe as the champion bends down to his knees.. Shoot kick to the back of TAKA's head, sending him crashing into the turnbuckle.. Downward Lariat to the back of his neck! McGuinness pulls TAKA up for a front suplex.. no, he's trapping his legs up against the ropes.. McGuinness with the TOWER OF LONDON!!!

COUNTER! TAKA grabs McGuinness by the arm, forcing him to the ground.. JUST FACELOCK!!! The crowd's on their feet, McGuinness is trying to push his foot back onto the rope, but he can't reach it! His eyes are growing tighter, arm extended out as he tries his hardest not to tap..... but he does! We have a new champion, ladies and gentlemen! WOW!
Result ~ TAKA Michinoku wins via submission w/ a Just Facelock
Time ~ 12:39


~ The audience is going wild here in the Honda Center, as we just crowned a NEW, WGPX Pure Champion! The referee quickly grabs that same title he had chucked from the side of the ring into the hands of Michinoku, who couldn't be happier. Finally, William Regal and Don West wish us goodnight, our show coming to a conclusion as we take a close-up shot of TAKA proudly holding up the title for all to see!

~ WGPX has officially announced the release of two former marquee stars in KURT ANGLE and SAMOA JOE. Apparently, the promotion had not planned on letting Angle go (thus booking him to go over Hiroshi Tanahashi this past Sunday) but Angle had already aired his grievances with the promotion the day after, making it very clear that he had nearly zero intentions of returning to the company. Joe, on the other hand, is expected to announce his retirement from the business soon after suffering a grueling neck injury two years prior.

~ Other workers have been cut from the roster as Grand Prix intends to start the new year off with a clean slate. We'll have more on this as soon as we're updated on the matter.

~ In other news, WGPX's hit show "Green Prix" has been renewed for a second season this year, as plans are now being set to begin shooting anywhere from three to seven weeks from now. Word is that the 'Texas Rattlesnake' himself, Steve Austin will be hosting the show, a long with former Grand Prix greats in Keiji Mutoh and Dean Malenko.

~ The Board of Directors have officially announced the 12 lucky competitors who will be competing in the 2012 Pride & Glory League Series! Chris Jericho was guaranteed a spot for winning the Glory League Battle Royal at the Millenium Battle event this past Sunday. The competitors are, in alphabetical order:

1.) Austin Aries
2.) Chris Jericho
3.) Christian Cage
4.) Claudio Castagnoli
5.) Dos Caras Jr.
6.) Jon Moxley
7.) Matt Morgan
8.) Nick Nemeth
9.) Shelton Benjamin
10.) Tito Ortiz
11.) Tyler Black
12.) Wade Barrett

~ The Series will run on a points system. A win via pin earns 10 points, whereas a submission victory earns you 15. Likewise, losing via pin will cost you the same amount of points, as does submission. A DQ victory nets a margin of 5 points. The Series will begin this Saturday on January the 28th before concluding on March 24th, one day before the Pride & Glory event. The top final four competitors will then compete in an elimination match as the show's main event to determine the winner, who will then be able to face any champion of his choosing. Let the games begin!

I really enjoy the sport/MMA/Far East influence with a western flare. Putting American stars in an Asian style promotion is a very good concept that I had thought about doing years ago. I like your knowledge of MMA workers and how you seem to to pick the right ones to make the transition to pro wrestling. Its nice touch.

Your level of detail in regards to your history and explaining the concepts of the orginization, its titles, honors, tourneys, etc. was spot on and entertaining. The match descriptions and storyline angles aren't quite that good, but they aren't horrible. For instance, why was charlie Haas mad again? He hasn't really been mentioned and his temper tantrum had me a tad confused.

The Lesnar/Shamrock match was entertaining and I'm looking forward to see how you develope that angle in the future.

Thanks mate, I've been dying for some feedback [been too busy to return the favor around these parts, but looking to do so once I get my next show finished] so this is really appreciated.

I'm right there with you - there's not a lot going on right now, but I do ensure that will improve here in the future, especially in regards to the Lesnar/Shamrock feud which I have big plans for. As far as Haas is concerned, he's losing his cool over him and Shelton losing the straps at the PPV, but a little extra detail probably would have helped get that across better. Nevertheless, thanks for reading, I'll try my best to make it worthwhile.

I need you to change the name so instead of it saying Wrestling Grand Prix it must say something else. The reason I am making you do this is because I am starting an actual wrestling promotion soon named Wrestling Grand Prix (WGP). Please do not infringe names of my wresstling company again. Do it or I will talk to the staff at Wrestling Forums about this. Do it soon because I'm starting the national promotion before 2015 so just rename it. Is that too much to ask for the sake of my promotion name?

wow, really? You think a fan fiction fed on the internet is going to ruin your indy fed? Really? Come one man, don't be naive. Lets face reality. You won't have the same type of show this BTB has, you won't have the roster (unless your a millionaire, and even then you won't have legal right to shut this down).

There is no point for this, no point to come on here and claim infringement because its not. The fact that he created this before you launched your indy promotion actually proves its not as he created it first. You have yet to produce a show as by your own above statement. I wish you luck with your indy fed, and you can call it what ever you want have fun with that. I'm pretty sure theres been a few backyard feds called WGP (maybe even some dead indy promotions)...should they come and call your indy fed infringement. Look at the section dude, its full of made up and actual promotions. All it is is writing.

as for the BTB, very clever stuff.

Well Since you put that way your probably right. But fact is I've been thinking about starting an actual named WGP since I was 10. Plus I'm going have 7 shows a week on the FOX networks and 96 of the best wrestlers in world. Also, my shows will visit places like North Korea, Japan, Mexico, etc. By the way it will be an international fed similar to WWE but without storylines and each show will have 4 30:00 Ironman matches (3hours per show. How about that?
