PWA Thunder . 29/04/12 - 06/05/12 . Chicago, IL

... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...

"YYZ" by Rush plays through the speakers and pyro erupts in the arena as the guitar enters the main riff.
The crowd cheers and the camera pans over them to the PWA announce booth:

Johnny Ray: Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the debut of Pure Wrestling Alliance's Tuesday Night Thunder! We come to you live from Chi-town; Chicago, Illinois! My name is Johnny Ray, and this is my broadcast partner, Floyd "The Fish" Smith - well known in the wrestling world, as he will tell you himself.

Fish: That's right, Johnny, people know me the world over. You're just jealous you couldn't get over even if I shoved you off a cliff.

Johnny Ray: Quick and witty as usual, Fish. But more importantly tonight, we are introducing some brand new faces to the wrestling world; faces who hope to gain fame and glory by becoming the first PWA World Champion. The playing field is even as we begin our inaugural show, but in a mere few weeks we will know who has guts enough to step up their game and become the World Heavyweight Champion.

Fish: Ohhh I can't wait! But we still don't know how the first Champion will be decided.

Then Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks" blares through the speakers, beginning with the famous drum beat. The audience waits to see what is going to happen next, and as the harmonica and guitar chime in, out steps the General Manager of Thunder, Kevin Andrews.

Johnny Ray: Well it looks like your questions will be answered soon enough. Here comes the General Manager of Thunder, Kevin Andrews!

Andrews walks down the ramp, dressed with style, and enters the ring. He is handed a microphone by the ring announcer, Kaitlin Moore, as the music dies down and the audience awaits his words.

Andrews: First of all, I want to thank all of you for coming to this, our inaugural episode of Tuesday Night Thunder!

Audience applauds. Andrews smiles and nods.

Andrews: It has been a lot of work getting all of this going, but I know it's going to be worth it. Tonight is the beginning of a new era in wrestling, and it is also the beginning of our search for a World Heavyweight Champion!

For the next few weeks, anyone in the PWA is eligible for the chance to become Champion. Myself, and other backstage officials, will be awarding points for victories based on how dominant you are. At the end of it all, the two wrestlers with the most points will face off, mano e mano, for the World Heavyweight Championship at our very first Pay Per View event next month!

And with that... let's start the action!

Audience cheers again and Kevin Andrew's music plays as he smiles in the ring, applauding.

Johnny Ray: Woah! So you've heard it folks! In lieu of a more traditional tournament structure, Kevin Andrews has elected to have an Open Invitational to decide who gets a title shot. This should be interesting.

Fish: I'm sure we'll learn more about the point structure as the night goes on, but I'm excited either way to get our first taste of real wrestling action!

Andrews is now exiting the ring and we cut to a commercial break.

Johnny Ray: Sure enough, when we come back from a short commercial break, we will see our first match on Tuesday Night Thunder!

James Curran(Wanker) v Little Jiminy Cricket
"James Curran, or is it Wanker? Doesn't matter; what you do in your free time...no one cares about. Just like You. No one cares about You. You might look great with all those muscles, but what good will it do you here? PWA. Pure Wrestling Alliance. You know the sport; the one you and your gym buddies joke around and say "it's just a bunch of gay guys playing around." Forget it. This Tuesday night on Thunder, there's one gay guy you who doesn't play around in the ring. And I really want you to meet him! But chances are you'll only see him flying through the air while he slams you unconscious! What happens next...is up to him, and I don't think you'll enjoy it.

You better show up for a fight because this little cricket ain't polite!"

oh, did I mention Little Jiminy Cricket was gay?

My 1st goal is to win the PWA World Heavyweight Championship and mark my words, after I win this prestigious championship, it will remain round my waist till the day I retire. Now this Tuesday at PWA Thunder I am in my first match against a guy named Lee Powell. And trust me I will not only beat Lee Powell but I will ruin his career because when i hit The Wasteland and the ref counts to 3, he won't be able to get back up! Now at PWA Thunder you will witness the beginning of not only a new era in PWA but you will witness the beginning of the H..K..C era!

###Bygrave giving a promo about not having a match.


###Mr Malaka enters

Promo.

Bygrave tries to talk.

SHUT THE HELL UP!!! I don't have a match either, I have to sit here and listen to you go on about being an ex Navy Seal and being the dirtiest new talent in PWA. Well I'm here to tell you I'm the dirtiest! ###Heartburn runs in from the crowd and sneak attacks Bygrave, He and Mr Malaka stomp him down. ###Bygrave gets up and hits the Spinebuster on Heartburn.

###Mr Malaka escapes and waits on the ramp. "GM get out here now and make this match official!"

Need to make sure whether or not the pre-match on youtube Miz Vs Santino counts. Anyone sure? And we can edit as well up until an hour before the event I'm assuming?

EXPLANATION OF THE OPEN INVITATIONAL
Four new people have signed up since the opening of this week's thread. I'm going to give them all a chance to enter into matches this week if they get their picks in on time.

Regardless, anyone who joins the promotion from here on out will be entered into the Invitational. Obviously all of you will have an advantage since you will have made picks for every week.

The way the Invitational works is by raw number of points scored. I am going to simply add up your points each week. If you score 112 this week, 98 next week, and 80 the week after that, then your collective score is 290. If that's good enough for the top two, then you will have earned yourself a title match. We will keep score like this until the week of WWE's next PPV (Over the Limit).

So, theoretically, someone could lose every match and still be in the top two, but I highly doubt that will happen. Also, since the points are just cumulative, people who join late will still be eligible to participate, but obviously they will be behind on points by a whole week! So it won't be easy for them to catch up.

Good luck to everyone.

Promo from The Veterinarian.


"I am an accomplished veterinary physician, and for years I have seen the discomfort of pets at the mercy of their neglectful owners. I am here to showcase the neglect of all the pet owners in the audience today. All of you come here and sit on your backsides listening and watching these ridiculous superstars while your pets sit at home STARVING and without love. Where is your shame?!?!? Have you no dignity or respect?!?! I bring my dog with me to each show because he deserves much better! I'm taking mental pictures of all of you here today, so that when your pets are brought to me, I'll force you to surrender them. This brings me to my true reason for coming here today: the WHC! I am hereby demanding the WHC be awarded to me as I am the only superstar here today that deserves the respect and admiration of the federation. I demand to be crowned champion at this PPV and demand that all of your pets are brought here to witness my ascension! With this prize in my possession, none of you can deny me as your champion and I'll bring you all face to face with your neglect. You will all pay for your crimes!!!"

**Throws mic at the crowd, does psycho dog man taunt and leaves arena.**
My future tag partner put his promo in the wrong thread so here it is.

ALRIGHT, EVERYONE

Thread is ALMOST *closed* for picks. Thanks to those of you have made them. I have to take a shower and head to work where I sell myself to fat, white chicks for incredibly small payments. I'm having a bit of an existential crisis about the whole thing, honestly.

Regardless, some of you have made picks despite not being in matches yet - as per my request! I will have matches for you put up when I get home from work tonight because it depends on who else gets their picks in last minute.

So I will be posting in here later tonight to inform you of the first round scoring (i.e., Extreme Rules), and I'll be editing the OP to include any new match(es).

GOOD LUCK TO ALL. This should be a fun first few weeks.

Miz didn't lose the title or does that not matter?

EDIT: I had Nikki Bella so please could you put how many points she got.

Ah, sorry about that! Yah, I will post Bella's points right now for you.

And "Lose Title" is just an abbreviation of "Lose Title Match". Miz was involved in a title match, which he lost, so he loses points for that. Same thing with Jericho, Daniel Bryan, and Big Show, regardless of who entered the match as the title holder.

Immediately following Mr. Malaka's request for a match against Bygrave, the titantron reveals the audience to Kevin Andrews.

Andrews: Mr. Malaka, excuse me, Mr. Malaka? It's a match you'd like tonight, yes?

Malaka nods his head aggressively and shouts, "Damn right!"

Andrews: Ok, I'll give you a match.

Audience cheers.

Andrews: But it won't be against Bygrave. If you'll notice, he's a little occupied at the moment.

Malaka turns around and notices that Bygrave has now escorted Heartburn into the stands and is beating him with a trashcan while nearby fans encourage the action. Malaka begins to run in order to help Heartburn, but Andrews stops him.

Andrews: Wait! Wait! Don't you wanna know who your opponent is? Or should I say opponents?

Malaka stops in his tracks and turns back to face the titantron while Bygrave has now beaten Heartburn out of the audience's view and into a backstage part of the arena.

Andrews: You will be in a triple threat match as part of our Open Invitational to decide our first World Heavyweight Champion. Consider it an honor. Your opponents? Newly signed talent, Carter Albano; and a good friend of yours, The Veterinarian!

Crowd erupts into cheers.

Fish: Oh, boy!

Andrews: And that match is going to happen... right NOW! Good day and good luck.

Andrews smiles and the titantron cuts immediately to black.

Johnny Ray: What an announcement we just heard, folks. Carter Albano might be at a disadvantage in this match, but given the... let's say... eccentricities of Mr. Malaka and The Veterinarian, who's to say what will happen here as they will be forced to compete against one another!

Fish: There are no friends when it comes to the World Heavyweight Championship, Johnny. Even tag team partners have to look out for numero uno!

Johnny Ray: I suppose you're right. Kevin Andrews has created a volatile environment here, so don't go anywhere ladies and gentleman - this match is next!

Cut to commercial.​

It's Just Mr Malaka, not Makalaka lol. Thanks for posting points too I had them a little wrong I thought if your wrestler lost a title match it was -3 only not -3 and -2 for defeat. That's good to know.

Thanks for the match Mr Andrews, Tag partner be damned. The WHC is far more important than friendship or veterinarians!
