World Wrestling Entertainment: Regeneration

With the poor pay-per-view buys of the December To Dismember event three days ago, on top of controversial issues regarding the company in the news, as well as the constant loss of interest in the product, all powers and authority figures within the company came to a conclusion that World Wrestling Entertainment shall be steering towards providing a while maintaining the appealing aspects to a wide variety of audiences, that the company currently possesses. Several ground breaking decisions were decided upon over the course of the following four days, after long nights and early mornings spent at the WWE headquarters in Connecticut discussing which direction the new regime should head in. Ideas were tossed back and forth between high powered individuals, such as Vince McMahon, Linda, Shane, Stepahnie, Paul Levesque along with Jim Ross, Pat Patterson and Gerald Briscoe. It was only up until a week later that these changes were to be officially announced to the world.

Because of family trauma, as well as other personal health issues, WWE writer and road agent Pat Patterson agreed to step down as writer, but he was still part of the company as a Road Agent, and as part of WWE's talent relations. This left the door open for a new staff member to be hired, or to be moved in to the position of writer, which was once filled by said Pat Patterson. However, to the shock of many, WWE took a gamble and hired relatively unknown writer, Robert Smiley. Smiley has worked within the television and entertainment industry for almost 15 years, and has been a wrestling fan since a very young age. The now revised creative team now consists of; Robert Smiley, Shane McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Mick Foley, Gerald Briscoe and Michael Hayes.

The biggest decision that was confirmed, and that is no in affect, during the many meetings was the death of the ECW brand. This may have came as a surprise to some, but the closure of the third brand was expected by many with in the company. Reasoning behind the closure of ECW was very simple, yet easy to argue against. After a few days shy of a sex month run, the brand not only lost money for the WWE, but the initial appeal of the reincarnation of the company soon ran off. Viewers became uninterested, and were put off by the product, which many called a disgrace to the ECW name. But of course, there are downsides to this seemingly great idea of shutting ECW down. It means that there is a lot of talent, still with a contract with the company, but with no role to play on screen, which only led to chaos surrounding the newly formed creative team. Before the closure, plans for Wrestlemania 23 were being finalised but now they have to write three months worth of television again, as well as plan and write two of the biggest pay per views in the year once again. The final ECW champion, following the extreme elimination chamber at December To Dismember, Rob Van Dam, is to be the only free agent who may roam between both Raw and Smackdown, but this freedom shall only be applied for a while. This is because many people believe his free agency, and the event of signing the champion could possibly be part of a storyline. However, the rest of the ECW talent are still having to be placed on either brand. The general consensus is that quite a lot of the talent shall be assigned to help boost the tag team divisions on both brands, as they are currently needing to be re-established, but as expected, a handful of talent, not only from ECW but from Raw and Smackdown also shall be released from the WWE as a whole. ECW is scheduled to run its course up until New Year's Resolution, where all members of ECW shall take part in an over the top battle royal. Roster changes shall be made immediately after New Year's Revolution and be in full effect the following Raw and Smackdown.​

The following talent have been released from their WWE contracts. They all left on good terms, and the WWE wish them the best of luck with their future endeavours.

Balls Mahoney
Big Vito
Jim Duggan
Kristal Marshall
Mark Henry
Matt Striker
Queen Sharmell
Ron Simmons
The Boogeyman

Another big decision agreed on during the past few days, is that of the pay-per-views. The current schedule is very busy and the original plans of making all pay-per-views bi-braned has no been scrapped, instead all pay-per-views apart from some shall remain single branded. The revised pay-per-view schedule is as follows:

Royal Rumble | January 28th 2007 | AT&T Center | San Antonio, Texas
Armageddon | February 23rd 2007 |
Wrestlemania 23 | April 1st 2007 | Ford Field | Detroit, Michigan
Backlash | May 6th 2007 | Phillips Arena | Atlanta, Georgia
Judgement Day | June 3rd 2007 | Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena | Jacksonville, Florida
Vengeance | July 1st 2007 | Toyota Center | Houston, Texas
Summerslam | August 12th 2007 | Continental Airlines Arena | East Rutherford, New Jersey
Unforgiven | September 2th 2007 | FedEx Forum | Memphis, Tennessee
King Of The Ring | September 30th 2007 | Verizon Center | Washington, D.C |
Cyber Sunday | October 28th 2007 | American Airlines Arena | Miami, Florida
Rebellion | November 18th 2007 | MEN Arena | Manchester, England
Survivor Series | December 30th 2007 | Mellon Arena | Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Many within the company like the multibranded pay-per-views, but many also like the idea of single branded pay-per-views to allowing enough time for the audience to really get in to the brands storylines. This timetable has been revised and checked thoroughly by several authority figures within the company and they feel this is the best pay-per-view schedule for years!

2007 is a new year for World Wrestling Entertainment, and under their new regime and seemingly a new era, good things are expected to come from the world's leading in the professional wrestling industry.

Monday Night Raw Preview | January 8 2007
Scottrade Center | St Louis, Missouri

One night after the first pay-per-view extravaganza of 2007, and Monday Night Raw rolls in to the Scottrade Center in St Louis, Missouri for what promises to be a an exciting and controversial night.

24 hours after successfully defending his WWE Championship against the Samoan Bulldozer, Umaga, John Cena is in action once again as he is scheduled to face The World's Largest Love Machine, Viscera in what promises to be an all out war between the two men. However, many are certain Umaga will try and get revenge on the man who not only denied him from becoming the WWE champion, but also the same man that ended Umaga's impressive winning streak. What will happen in the main event, and what role, if any, will Umaga play in John Cena's night?

After almost 15 minutes of brutality inside a steel cage, Intercontinental champion Jeff Hardy managed to retain his title against an ever-dangerous Johnny Nitro. Jeff Hardy, being the fighting champion that he is, is once again willing to defend one of the most coveted championships in professional wrestling history tonight, in an open challenge. The charismatic enigma knows that anyone in the back, or even in the world could volunteer for this open challenge and despite this, Hardy is still issuing the challenge. Will Jeff Hardy's guts be the downfall of the champion, or will the fan favourite pull of another victory and another successful title defence?

Following New Year's Revolution, ECW is now dead and the roster has been split equally between Smackdown and Raw in a draft lottery on WWE.com earlier today. Monday Night Raw managed to pick up some huge stars, including Bobby Lashley, Tommy Dreamer, The Sandman, Sabu, Snitsky and The Great Khali. Will any of these men make their presence felt on Monday nights by making an immediate impact? If so, how will they do it? Or will they stay back for a bit and wait for an opportunity to arise? Find out tonight! A man, who didn't take part in the draft, is ECW Champion Rob Van Dam. Van Dam is contractually allowed to roam between both, Smackdown and Raw! Will the ECW Champion make an appearance tonight, and in what capacity?

Following the failure of a civilised match up between Rated RKO and D-Generation X, medics earlier today have confirmed Triple H is now on the injured list. No set time has been given for Helmsley's return, but many feel that it could be up to 6 months on the shelf, for the Game. How will the Heart Break Kid react to the possible career threatening injury of his best friend, if he does anything at all? Speaking of Rated RKO, the tag team champions shall be in action tonight, against the new number one contenders, The World's Greatest Tag Team. Haas and Benjamin fought for almost 20 minutes, defeating four other teams to become number one contenders, and they have an almost immediate opportunity to become new champions tonight. Will Rated RKO fall to Haas and Benjamin tonight, or will the reign of terror in the tag team division continue, with them leading the way?

Confirmed for tonight

Intercontinental Championship match - Open Challenge.
Jeff Hardy (c) vs.???

Tag Team Championship match
Rated RKO (c) vs. The World's Greatest Tag Team

WWE Champion, John Cena vs. Viscera

Alrighty, you have your first showing previewed and I can't wait until it's up :)

John Cena defeating Umaga was a good choice, Cena is obviously way more over than Umaga, and Umaga doesn't really need the title. Him going up against Edge again could be explosive and could start a feud again, which I loved so I can't wait.

Jeff Hardy was pretty outstanding with the IC Championship, I can't wait to see who he faces and I like that it is a mystery, makes me want to read more! Steel cage seems like a good stipulation to have, as you don't see it for the IC Title too often. Good job.

The fall of ECW is a good choice in my eyes, which I probably should have done to add more superstars to my rosters as it looks like you're doing here. I really like what you did, and it seems good to me.

Rated RKO injuring Trips is also a prime factor in the night as I love this rivalry to death, and I once again can't wait to see what you do with this. Them defending should be fun and I hope to god that they retain.

Looks to me like an awesome night for the card you have built already, and I can tell you that I will definitely be reviewing. Good Luck :)

I thought you were doing a BTB already? Did you get permission from a mod to make another? Anyways, I like the looks. Good that you molded it the way you wanted, and released some useless guys(Balls Mahoney). Not sure why you would want to get rid of talented guys like Daivari though. I like the banners, and will follow.

Hey man, your Raw looks great. John Cena versus Viscera seems interesting, aswell as Jeff hardy's opening challenge, the tag match also interests me, as I'm interested in seeing if you'll make something more out of Rated RKO's title reign and run with it, or push the WGTT again. Anyway, I'll make sure to catch Raw when you write it, good luck.
