Hey, first time poster/diary writer. I've read a few and liked a lot, and I've played EWR a bit, I started with 3.0 (yes I'm a n00b), and now I'm doing this diary with 4.0. I've been playing this certain simulation for a while, and I've saved most accounts of what happened. I'll try to update on a regular basis. But here's the main premise:

Back Story

Vince McMahon slowly looks through his past buyrates. He looks up at his writing staff and booking team.
Vince: What the hell is going on? We used to skyrocket through in buyrates, and now look at this! We can't even fill an arena! What the hell is going wrong?
Writers: Maybe we need more McMahons...
Stephanie: That could be it, daddy.
Vince: Damnit, I'm tired of this!
Alpha: Ahem... excuse me sir. Maybe if we changed the way we present our storylines...
Vince: What?
Stephanie: Don't listen to him daddy. He's just some whacked booker. I was going to fire him, but I must've forgotten. How about I just do it now?
Vince: Wait. I want to hear what he has to say.
Alpha: Sir, there is a problem. In a sense, that problem is you, and Steph, and Linda and Shane. There's too many McMahons on TV. We've got to reaccess our situation. You're running a split brand now, each that should have it's own style, each that should compete.
Vince: I don't want competition between my own writers!
Alpha: Sir, competition is what brings out the best in all of us.
Vince: You're right... So what should we do?
Alpha: First off sir, we've got to get rid of these split Pay Per Views. At least, temporarily. Why are there split Pay Per Views? We haven't given a reason. Let's start by fixing that up.
Vince: Done. What else?
Alpha: We've got to push rising stars. Even subtly if you want. If Triple H wants to stay on top, then let it be. But focus storylines around other wrestlers too. You'll be surprised on the results.
Vince: I'll give you a year to see if you can fix my company. If I begin to see failure within a month however... well then YOU'RE FIRED!
Alpha: Whoa... um.. thank you sir. I will not let you down!

A few days later...

Alpha: Mr. Shane McMahon. It's good to see you again. You're going to have to stop this angle with Kane. I need you to be the general manager of one more brand.
Shane: Another brand split?!
Alpha: Well technically not a seperate brand. You see, you are going to promote a more cruiserweight oriented show, with women's wrestling in it too.
Shane: Interesting...
Alpha: All wrestlers on Velocity can show up on all three shows, Raw, Smackdown or Velocity.
Shane: Three shows? We have four.
Alpha: Well, apparantly Velocity has been dropped.
Shane: What?
Alpha: I've decided that since Velocity got the shaft, we'll shift it to Sundays, and take out Heat. Heat sounds too... mundane.
Shane: All right.
Alpha: So... are you willing to do it?
Shane: Fine. But what about me and Kane? What happens to that angle?
Alpha: Well, since we've already got a reputation for dropping storylines out of nowhere, this will have to be one of those times.
Shane: I don't like it, but we'll see how this goes.

One more day later...

Vince: All right, it's time for you to start your little era.
Alpha: I won't let you down sir.
Vince: I hope not.
Alpha: Well sir. I'll be off to begin Raw.
Vince: Good. I'll see you in one month.
Alpha: One year sir. Trust me, you're company will be right back on track!

EDIT: I might update a bit faster at the start than later on, because my game is sort of ahead of my dynasty over here. But I'll try to keep them on a set schedule.
Also, I am running the WWE on easy. Yeah, I'm a wuss. I'll upgrade to medium eventually.
Replies are welcomed, so are questions. I'm doing this just cause I enjoy it. Nothing more. =D

So here’s what The Rock thinks. The Rock thinks that you, Stale Game, should put the title on the line tonight!

Triple H: Rock, I’ll tell you what. If you can defeat Ric Flair, tonight, then I’ll let you have your match against me.

Rob Conway, Mark Jindrak, Lance Cade, Rodney Mack, Orlando Jordan, Doug 'The Machine' Basham, The Damaja (Danny Basham).

It is being rumored that the WWE is trying to negotiate a new contract with none other than Jerry Lynn. Though it is still speculation, expect Jerry Lynn to show up on oncoming WWE events.

The WWE recently fired the likes of Shaniqua (Linda Miles), and Nathan Jones. This continual release of talent is said to be scaring people backstage. Though, it's probably assured that many fans are letting out a sigh of relief with these two gone.

Christopher Daniels was said to have denied a contract with the WWE. His Japanese commitments were probably the reason he denied them a contract.

It looks as though the WWE is planning to remove the Women's division, while pushing the Cruiserweight division. Though it hasn't been made official, be forewarned of this possibility.

Thursday Smackdown! Live from Providence, Rhode Island! September 11th, 2003:
The self proclaimed Best Damn Tag Team takes on the team of Rey Mysterio and Billy Kidman. These two met before on Vengeance, and The Best Damn Tag Team narrowly kept the Smackdown! Tag Titles. Will Mysterio and Kidman be able to defeat The Best Damn Tag Team on Thursday?
Chris Benoit takes on Eddie Guerrero for the Smackdown! United States Title.

Other scheduled matches for Thursday Smackdown! on September 11th:
Billy Gunn takes on the man-beast, Rhyno.
The A.P.A. take on Chuck Palumbo and Johnny Stamboli of the F.B.I.
Zach Gowan takes on the evil Sean O'Haire.

Internet News from SomeWrestlingRumorSite.com
It has been reported that Evolution may add another member to it's ranks. Past rumors have pointed towards Mark Jindrak, but with Jindrak going back to OVW, it's hard to say who will be joining Evolution.

The recent debut of Raven shocked wrestlers backstage. They were not told of his debut, and some thought Raven appearing was a shoot. Raven is expected to feud with Booker T for the next few months.

Jeff Hardy appeared on 'Off The Record' and explained his actions in the WWE. He further went on to say that his dreams are still with music and someday may want to return to the WWE.

Many WWE bookers and writers went to Nashville on Wednesday to see NWA:TNA. Whether they were there to scout for wrestlers or watch for storylines is uncertain.

As of now, the WWE has planned to make Raw a more storyline driven show featuring older stars, while Smackdown! is expected to be more wrestling oriented featuring newer, break-out stars. Velocity is not expected to have any storylines.
