Re: Official WWE 13 Thread
So… I’ve spent a lot of time preparing for my WWE Universe. Downloading CAWs, working on entrance music and move sets etc for all of them, creating titles, and so on. This is what I’ve got:
I have two brands. The WWE brand with RAW on Monday nights, and the TNA brand with Impact on Thursday nights. Both brands have four titles… WWE has the WWE title, the Intercontinental title, the WWE Tag Team titles and the Divas title. TNA has the TNA World title, the TNA Television title, the TNA World Tag Team titles, and the TNA Knockout title. The Pay-Per Views will be the once chosen for the Universe mode, at least for the first year. And as far as the matches, I play ALL of them myself, and whoever I control is randomly chosen unless it’s set up to be a squash match.
Here’s my rosters:
Alberto Del Rio
The Great Khali
Rob Van Dam
As far as who’s champion, I started with the exact same champions as in real life nearly a month ago.
Here’s a summary of my first month, leading up to Extreme Rules:
WWE Championship picture
A new #1 Contender had to be found. And with a lot of main eventers suddenly on the same roster, you had to step up and impress. On the first show, Dolph Ziggler and Big Show teamed up to defeat the Sheamus and John Cena, even though Show and Ziggler had their issues. And Ryback also stepped up, as he defeated “The Mexican Aristocrat” Alberto Del Rio. On RAW in week 2, the main event was a #1 Contendership match in which Ryback was seen impressively defeating Big Show, setting up CM Punk vs. Ryback at Extreme Rules. Week 3 gave the fans the first opportunity to watch “The Viper” Randy Orton in action, as Orton faced and defeated Wade Barrett. CM Punk was also seen “convincing” the newly returned Mark Henry to face Ryback, but even with Punk in Henry’s corner, Ryback managed to get yet another win. Six days before Extreme Rules Dolph Ziggler got another impressive win, as he defeated “The Celtic Warrior” Sheamus one-on-one. And in the main event it was a taste of what to come at Extreme Rules, as WWE Champion CM Punk faced Ryback. A match that saw the referee being inadvertently knocked down, before The Shield rushed to the ring and took out Ryback with a devastating Powerbomb, giving Punk the win.
Intercontinental Championship picture
A lot of mid carders had to prove themselves to be in contention for Kofi Kingston’s Intercontinental title. On the first RAW Tensai defeated Ted DiBiase. The next week Mark Henry returned and defeated Christian, while The Miz defeated Jack Swagger. In week 3 R-Truth defeated Antonio Cesaro. And six days before Extreme Rules, Tensai got another win, this time against “The Funkasaurus” Brodus Clay.
WWE Tag Team Championship picture
On the first RAW, Rhodes Scholars defeated Primo and Epico, to show that they still wanted Team Hell No’s Tag Team gold. The next week Rhodes Scholars even managed to defeat the champions themselves, and even though a steel chair was brought into the match behind the referee’s back, a win over the champions was hard to look past. In week 3 on RAW, Los Luchadores, being the team of Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara, defeated The Prime Time Players. And on the last RAW before Extreme Rules, 3MB introduced themselves with a 6-man tag win against The Miz and the team of Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd.
Divas Championship picture
In the divas division, the champion herself set the tone on the first RAW, as Eve defeated Alicia Fox. Next week Natalya made her intentions clear as she made Tamina tap out. And that was noticed as Natalya faced Kaitlyn in a #1 Contender match six days before Extreme Rules, in a match where Kaitlyn surprised everyone by leaving as #1 Contender for Eve’s Divas title.
TNA World Championship picture
Just like on the WWE brand’s roster, the contender lists in TNA was as good as wiped clean. So they were also in need of a new #1 Contender for their main title, held by “The Charismatic Enigma” Jeff Hardy. On the first episode of Impact, “The Cowboy” James Storm was seen getting the win for him and his teammates AJ Styles and TNA World Champion Jeff Hardy, in a 6-man Tag match against Kazarian, Christopher Daniels and Bobby Roode. The next week General Manager Hulk Hogan announced that a Triple Threat #1 Contender’s match would be the main event. It would be Bobby Roode vs. AJ Styles vs. and unknown third competitor, seeing as Hogan put it in the hands of the fans to pick the third competitor via a poll, consisting of everyone on the roster. And that third competitor very surprisingly turned out to be the recently returned Jesse Sorensen, who had returned the week before to attack the guy who broke his neck, Zema Ion. All three competitors gave their all, but in the end Roode pinned Sorensen to become #1 Contender for Hardy’s World title at Extreme Rules. In week 3 on Impact, James Storm and AJ Styles teamed up to defeat the team of Mr. Anderson and Kurt Angle, while later on Jeff Hardy defeated Austin Aries in the main event. Four days before Extreme Rules Hulk Hogan followed up WWE General Manager Booker T’s example and booked a taste of what to come in their Extreme Rules main event, but topped it by having Hardy and Roode compete in a table match. A match where Hardy Swanton Bombed Roode through a table to get the win, but only to be attacked by Austin Aries during his celebration.
TNA Television Championship picture
Just like on the WWE brand there was a lot of mid carders that wanted to prove themselves worthy to contend for the mid card title, currently held by Samoa Joe. On the first episode of Impact, Mr. Anderson picked up a Triple Threat win again Rob Van Dam and Magnus, pinning Magnus. Later on, the debuting John Hennigan faced Zema Ion. Ion was distracted during the match by the surprise return of Jesse Sorensen. Hennigan defeated Ion, but Ion put a stop to the celebrations as he attacked Hennigan after the match. Next week opened with a tag match, where the team of newcomers Wes Brisco and John Hennigan faced and defeated Zema Ion and Magnus, and later on Matt Morgan with Joey Ryan by his side defeated D’Angelo Dinero. In week 3 Zema Ion got a win as he defeated Wes Brisco, but six days before Extreme Rules Zema Ion was overlooked for a Triple Threat #1 Contender’s mach. Instead he lost to Magnus, while Aces & Eights’ Sargeant In Arms, Devon, stole the #1 Contendership in the Triple Threat against Rob Van Dam and Joey Ryan, a he rolled RVD up and got the win with a handful of tights.
TNA World Tag Team Championship picture
The champs set the tone as Chavo and Hernandes defeated Robbie E and Robbie T on the first episode of Impact. The next week Daniels and Kazarian followed in those footsteps as they too defeated E & T. In week 3 Kazarian and Daniels had their eyes set on the tag title match at Extreme Rules, but they were informed that they would be facing Aces & Eights’ Devon and DOC in a #1 Contender match. A match where DOC Chokeslammed Daniels to get the win, to surprisingly send Aces & Eights to Extreme Rules as #1 Contenders. Six days before Extreme Rules, Kazarian and Daniels got back on the track as they once again defeated E & T.
Knockout Championship picture
On the first episode of Impact, ODB got an upset win again former champion Gail Kim. The next week Gail Kim got defeated again, this time by Mickie James. In week 3 Tara put both of the last two week’s winners on notice in a Triple Threat match, as she defeated ODB and Mickie James, by pinning ODB while using the ropes for leverage. Six days before Extreme Rules Mickie James defeated Brooke Tessmacher in a #1 Contender match.

Triple Threat Extreme Rules

Ending: This was a hall of fame match for the ages. Brilliant. It was packed with finishers, near falls, reversals, etc. James Storm kicked out of AJ’s Styles Clash twice, and the third time Storm reversed the pinfall attempt into a roll up where Styles kicked out in the very last second. Morgan got hit with the Last Call, but Styles managed to break up the count. In the end it took a Carbon Footprint to get the win. But it was not Morgan who won, as when Morgan hit Storm with his patented finisher, Styles quickly hit the Pelé on Morgan and actually pinned Storm for the win in this amazing match.
CM Punk vs. Ryback
Ending: Ryback was in powerful control for most of the match, and even when CM Punk managed to get Ryback down with the use of a chair and eventually managed to hit Ryback with the GTS, Ryback kicked out at one. But in the end the WWE Champion and self-proclaimed “Best In The World” managed to hit the GTS on Ryback again, and pinned him with the leverage of the ropes.
