North American Wrestling Federation

Background Story N.A.W.F.

Shane McMahon was living the good life at the WWE. The company was producing good product but more importantly he was performing his job well. He was set to take over once his father, Vince, retired from the business. But Shane had a change of heart (after years and years of wondering “what if”). He did not want to just inherit an already prosperous company, he wanted to create his own without his father’s help. Vince was appalled by his son’s stupidity and to this day still does not understand why Shane would do this. Shane went out on his own and talked to open talents, talked to open personnel and staff works, and ultimately began his creation.
Things got serious once Eric Bischoff got involved. Bischoff knew all of the talent that was out there that he wanted. He gave Shane a wish list of 50 superstars (some were still contracted to other promotions such as WWE, TNA, etc.). Shane returned to him, in the end, with a roster of 23 contractually obligated to compete men. At the top of that list sat Batista.
Batista was out of the wrestling business and attempting to succeed in his movie career. But it was not long for Batista to realize his career was not in film but in the ring (aka money talks and Batista was fluent in 9 languages when it comes to that). Shane McMahon was more than willing to spend on good, recognizable talent.
Shane was able to get some other notable names like Mark Copani (Muhammad Hassan) and Montel Vontavious Porter and John Morrison to name a few. But Shane really needed one more big name guy to help the company grow. He knew he wasn’t gonna find it in free agency.
Shane started looking through bigger promotions for wrestlers with expiring contracts. Almost immediately he was able to get Justin Gabriel signed on. Gabriel felt the WWE was under-using him and had no real plans for his future so he didn’t extend his contract and left. But now the biggie came.
Randall Keith Orton. Randy was unhappy with being behind superstars such as Sheamus, John Cena, and Ryback for the title. He felt that he was more entertaining for the fans and put in the hard work to deserve it. Instead, WWE put him in feuds with wrestlers who weren’t on his level. When Shane O’Mac came around and offered Randy a job (and a large check), Randy was still unsure on the severity of the project. All it took was a little help from Randy’s good friend John Morrison to talk him into it. He jumped on board and there goes the 25 man roster.
In terms of the business aspect, Shane was able to complete a deal with TBS for a 9-11pm timeslot on Wednesday nights. TBS has recently tried to obtain a new crowd of viewers for their channel and felt the NAWF might be what they needed.

OOC: This is my first attempt at a BTB. I have been reviewing and viewing some different threads to kind of get a feel for what I should do. Creating my own promotion seemed like the most fun for me.
