Just five years after WCW and ECW went under and were bought by WWE an even bigger challenger emerged. This company was the XWC, Xtreme Championship Wrestling. It was owned by Ted Turner and ran by Paul Heyman, after he failed to sign a new contract with WWE in late 2005. Ted Turner was out looking for revenge for what Vince Mcmahon had done to his WCW in the late 90s. He eventually stole alot of WWE's talent, but Mcmahon put up a good fight purchasing TNA and ROH to gain quality wrestlrs which would help put up a fight. After 3 years of the second Monday Night Wars, Vince Mcmahon's WWE won and bought out the XWC, however Vince, who'd never been to fond of the name WWE since the lawsuit with the World Wildlife Fund, decided to keep the name XWC. He kept all of the big talents and began the new era of sports entertainment, dividing the roster into two shows; Raw and Smackdown! The new era began with XWC No Mercy in late 2008.
