=========================

~Overview

Total Nonstop Talking [TNT Wrestling] is a fantasy wrestling promotion, set in the modern day. You will create the wrestlers, script their promos, and compete on TNT's weekly show - TNT Warzone.

Your journey begins when you create a character, a full character template can be found in the character creation section of this thread. You can create any character you like, someone based off a current wrestler, based off yourself, or just someone completely random, you have complete control over their behaviour, their in-ring style, and how well they perform. For example, my favourite character to use for this sort of promotion is a heel named Jesus Valentine, who was a self-proclaimed "Savior" - he believes predominantly that he is FAR above everybody else in terms of ability, and he is here to save everybody else from medicority. He also has some dark moments, with his torrid past, the murder of his ex-girlfriend, and religious metaphors, making him a very deep character.


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

~Weekly Shows

Warzone is the TNT weekly show, which will air on Thursday Nights. It is on these weekly shows that your wrestler has a chance to compete in the ring, and this is where feuds and storylines will also develop. I will personally write all of the Warzone shows, I have previous experience in doing this, and I'm confident that together we can develop a very popular brand. I will be accepting ideas and feedback from the entire TNT community for how to develop the shows and the characters. The winners of the matches will be determined from your weekly promo(s) as will be further explained in the next section.


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

~Promos:

Your weekly promos will determine how well your character does in your match, and I'll explain how these promos will work. Each week that you are booked in a match, you will write a promo for your character. These promos will be written in the form of a reply to the match card thread, and should consist of no more than 1,000 words. These promos can take the form of any writing style you wish, whether you're being interviewed, you're slandering your opponent, telling us about overcoming adversity, its your choice. Then each wrestler's promo is compared with the other, with marks being scored for quality of writing, relevance, emotion, and impact. Then, whomever is deemed to have written the best promo, will more than likely win the match, the size of the gap between promos depends on how close, or how much of a squash the match is.

There are many different styles of promo which you can do, and you won't be marked down for trying something new. Ultimately, it comes down to how good your promo is, and how much it makes us believe in your character's ability to win. As storylines develop throughout the shows, there may be times when matches will end in interferences, or other things will happen, so having the best promo doesn't automatically make you win the match, it just improves your wrestler's performance level, as sometimes storylines have to develop in other ways. Through better promos come better performances, and with better performances come the opportunity to win title belts.


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

~PPV Schedule

I am looking towards doing around 8 PPVs a year, if it begins to feel like there isn't enough time between them, I will lower this number, if they feel too far apart, I will create more, but I think to start off with, waiting 6-7 weeks before PPVs will allow enough time between so they feel pretty special, the current PPV schedule is as follows: [preliminary names given]

Eclipse - Mid May
Inferno - Late June
Torture - Early September
Breakout - Late October
Sacrifice - Early January
Salvation - Late February
Destiny - Mid April


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

~Title Belts

The title belts of 3TW are driving focus for many of the roster. Holding a 3TW title shows that you are amongst the best of the best, to ever set foot in the promotion. There are a few different titles that can be challenged for, and each one represents and upholds their own individual values.

The World Heavyweight Championship:



This championship is the big one, whomever holds this championship is deemed to currently be the best in the promotion. Only a select few will ever have the opportunity to hold this title, and it is regarded as the most valuable. Anyone who holds this will have the spotlight, and it is by holding the World Heavyweight Championship that legacies will be born.


The Extreme X Championship:



This championship is almost as big as the World Heavyweight Title, this is because, unlike the rest of the titles, this title can only be defended in Extreme X matches, where instead of one promo, each player gets the chance to have three. These matches take place inside a ring similar to the UFC cage, and these matches tend to be very brutal, only the bravest will survive to hold this championship.


The Primetime Championship:



This is a championship which tends to be the first big step many take inside the ropes of 3TW, this is definitely not thought to be a mediocre championship. The contests for this title are just as fierce as the contests for the World Title, and if anything, being a Primetime Champion is even tougher, as the belt is defended more frequently. Whomever holds the Primetime Title heading into the "Breakout" PPV gets to main event that PPV as part of the World Championship match.


The World Team Championships:



These are the title belts to symbolise who the best team in 3TW are. Different to other promotions, these belts aren't strictly reserved for tag-teams, they can be defended in 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, or stable vs stable matches, and these titles show everyone else in the promotion, that your team is the most dominant force. In any kind of team match, everyone submits individual promos (hopefully relating to their team) and the team with the best overall performance will be victorious.

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

~Why should you join?

This promotion, and this idea should hopefully fill the void left when EPW ceased to exist, which was the old e-fed on this website, which ran for seven years. I'm aiming to give something different from the fantasy leagues and prediction promotions, and allow people the chance to make their own promos, and slander their opponents. From what I see in rants, and across the games section, a lot of people have pent-up aggression, and if used in the right way, that fire could seem them burn their legacy into TNT history.

I would urge everybody who's reading this to try it out, it really doesn't take that long to fill out the character form and sign up, I guarantee that after a few weeks when this is up and running, everybody will be enjoying themselves. From the banter between characters in their promos, to the well-written matches, I believe you will get more out of this promotion than you will any other, as you will be emotionally investing in your character, and you will get to follow the storylines/feuds, and read the matches and how they reach a conclusion.

Personally, I have previous experience participating in quite a few different e-feds, and I also have experience as a booker/match writer for EPW, where I wrote quite a few PPV & Main-Event matches. I know first-hand that it is a lot of fun, and I would like to share that experience with all of you guys.

If anyone has any ideas/improvements/suggestions please let me know, and if anyone needs any questions answered feel free to PM me. I would also like to mention to all the people who currently are part of PWA Fantasy League, or the Forum Championship predictions to also sign up here, as there's no reason why you can't do all at once, and if there are any old-timers from EPW, sign up here and get back in the game.

Once I get around 10 or so people signed up to the roster, I'll put up the first match card and we can get sorted with beginning to run the show, ideally I would hope to stabilise the roster size at around 20-25 people.


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

~Table of Rankings

Throughout the course of this promotion, I will keep a track of everyone's win/loss records, but the table of rankings takes into consideration number of wins/losses, titles currently held, recent form, character legacy, and places the superstars in order from top to bottom of where they currently stand in the company. these ratings will change from week to week, and typically, the higher up the rankings you are, the more title opportunities you will be given, however in certain matches, absolutely anyone can win titles or title shots, I will update the Rankings after each weekly show & PPV, it will be like a proper version of the Power25.

Roster/Rankings:

1)
2)
3)
4)
5)

~Kayfabe Background/History

TNT is a fantasy wrestling promotion, which is just beginning to launch. The promotion's unique selling point is the fact that is more physical, and more barbaric than other standard promotions. At the pinnacle of this aggression, is the Extreme X Title, which can only be defended in a UFC cage. TNT has been on record to say that their roster is the deadliest, and most technically gifted roster in the entire wrestling industry, and after their launch, "you won't want to watch anything else" as TNT promises drama, conflict, emotion, and five-star matches. The weekly TNT Warzone show will tour the United States, and pictures of the proposed set have been leaked, with a darker atmosphere, and lighting emphasising the stage and the ring more prominently than other promotions. At the official pre-launch conference, more big announcements were made, although we know none of the main roster as of yet, TNT announced that the on-screen General Manager of TNT Warzone would be Jesus Valentine, the former EPW World Heavyweight Champion, this reveal has prompted frantic discussions regarding the roster, and who will be competing inside the promotion. Jesus Valentine made the following press statement:

"I've got a large sum of my own money invested in this business, because this roster is amongst the best in the world. As General Manager, these kids will know not to step out of line. Its an honour to be the face of such a great promotion, and I can promise you, that in the years to come, we will blow all of the competition out of the water."

We all look forward to the official launch of TNT Wrestling, and we will see how it fares in the months and years to come.

<I will update this part when the show actually launches, and it will contain summaries of each weekly show and PPV, along with the recurring storylines and feuds>


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

~Conclusion

Hopefully I've described TNT Wrestling as best as I can, if you have any suggestions you can drop me a PM, or ask me in this thread. At the current moment, this thread will serve a few different purposes, acting as an announcement thread, a thread for general discussion, the sign-up thread, and a thread for updating the roster/history of the promotion.

Hopefully this gets a positive reaction from people and we can start getting some sign-ups!

Yes, I am signed up to PWA, this is completely different, it doesn't revolve around predictions, nor the results of any real-life promotions.

Instead, this takes the form of a wrestling e-fed, where people create characters, and their performances are determined by how good their promos are, a concept that has been in place far before any prediction fed.

Still looking for the first few sign-ups, I hope potential players aren't put off by the fact that some people believe this is similar to another current WF promotion, because as I already explained in the main post, the last proper e-fed on this site ceased to exist about a year ago, and I've made TNT Wrestling to try and fill that void.
