    Impact Wrestling (Championship), the Return to Monday Night, Live

    The time to launch a major new storyline is when the company makes its next big move in production. From the title you can gather that the big move in this thread would be a return to Monday night, live (every week), and more often on the road.

    Impact Wrestling is leaving Thursday night and will begin airing at 7PM Eastern/6PM Central on Monday nights (and there will be no replays cannibalizing the audience on Thursday night). The advertisement of live television in addition to existing and newly signed stars will supply the crowds. It's been shown that advertising a road show as a television taping can turn out 5,000 fans; and the addition of the word "LIVE" will only increase the size of the audiences.


    The big angle for the maiden episode would be the debut of Goldberg.

    The Goldberg title reign would last for many months. The guy he doesn't wrestle in the first year and the guy that is set up to end the streak would be Gunner.


    Production changes: The ring would be expanded a few feet; a fourth rope would be added; full length pads would be used in the corners (and the pads would feature sponsor logos); the entrance screen and ramp would be removed; the wrestlers would enter at ground level through a hall as in pro boxing and MMA; the walls and floors of the entrance hall would be covered in LED screens creating a hall of light; MMA gloves would be enforced; mouth pieces would be enforced; refs would be strong and attentive; refs would wear surgical gloves during matches; women refs would be used in all women’s matches; Eric Bischoff would replace Tenay and a third chair would be added for Hemme; a new weight division would be introduced for wrestlers over 265lb; the TNA name would be replaced by Impact Wrestling Championship permitting fans and journalists to talk about the product with a three letter name; and new belts would be created featuring the new logo.


    Titles:
    The cruiserweight division would be folded into the heavyweight division and the X-belt unified with the heavyweight title.

    The heavyweight championship would transition to Bill Goldberg who would carry it most of the year.

    The super heavyweight belt would be awarded to The Samoan Submission Machine in a match against Bully Ray in the main event of the second Monday night show. During the year; the giant Zuluzinho would be signed and ultimately become the number one contender, while Joe drops the belt to Morgan. Morgan loses the belt in his first defense against Zinho, who is not knocked off of his feet for a year before he drops the belt via submission.

    To Be Continued

    Intriguing to see where you take this, because if I remember TNA were actually on Monday Nights in March 2010 but never flourished on the night. Hope you cook up something fresh for Impact Wrestling on Monday Nights.

    Going live, taking the show on the road, signing Goldberg, and starting the show two hours before Raw will be plenty to make this move a success.

    The Thursday night timeslot isn't getting them anywhere-- they could pull the same ratings airing at 9PM Central on a Saturday night.

    I disagree, while going live means there are less spoiler alerts, it also means (in a realistic point of view) edits and such can't be made. Raw has way higher production values and experience to be able to go the live show way and even they aren't brash enough to go with two/three/four live shows. Furthermore, Goldberg is completely untalented, he might work for a short while but his hype would eventually die off, the IWC itself would most likely criticize them further for bringing in another past-his-prime talent. He will draw huge early on but it will die down and he really won't be able to compete with the talent already there. Finally, two hours before Raw doesn't help. That's about 7 o clock right? That's not prime time so viewers are down, 9PM on thursday's isn't as glamorous as monday's but more people are off work than at 7, allowing for more viewers. Putting it earlier simply means you reduce viewers by increasing the number of people working during that time. Hell, might even lower fans in-attendance. This is even more severe when you consider their viewer base is largely adults, if it was a Family-Friendly show like Raw, then it wouldn't be bad and might actually help because you have more teenagers watching. This is aimed a bit more at 18+ meaning these guys are working, hell might even have night classes etc. Overall, good luck but I just wanted to give my two cents on why I feel that's a bad business move. This doesn't have any impact in the show itself of course.

    Re: Impact Wrestling (Championship), the Return to Monday Night, Live

    The Monday ratings were down because they went back and forth between live and taped; they cannibalized their audience with replays on Thursday, and they just weren't ready for the move. I believe they are ready now to go live on Monday and being able to film in arenas is a big part of being ready. The internet can hate Goldberg but the man puts butts in seats and that is the insurance the company requires to broadcast on the road every week.

    Thursday has become too competitive, and moving to Monday; whether starting at 7PM Eastern or 8PM Eastern, will be the best thing for expanding the audience. More people aren't watching Impact Wrestling on Thursdays because it's the night to go to the bar if you're college aged than because they are at work.

    So....is this an actual BTB project or just more of your TNA fantasies? Outside of the lack of logistics in making an early slot Monday show work, why do you want Hemme as a commentator when she's clearly only good for staring at?

    The most important issue in story telling is the long term story-- and I've given quite cleanly the narrative of who the company is about as well as the narrative of the company for an entire year in one post already. This isn't a plot for the sake of a plot that I think is awesome-- it's about the time to launch the next chapter in the company. An awesome story isn't enough to expand the audience; you have to put some investment down and further evolve the product. I'm still going to address the full story for this suppositional maiden broadcast, but it's more important to lay down where everything is going before you kick off from the docks.

    On Hemme: I would like to try out a female commentator just to have a female voice and face at the table; and she is getting good on the mic-- it's a promotion.

    Re: Impact Wrestling (Championship), the Return to Monday Night, Live

    I'm intrigued, that's for sure. I won't criticise any of your "business" decisions, because I made some of my own for my BTB that at the end of the day probably don't make sense, and is probably a really ****ty business model, but it's about being creative. You justified your reasons for doing so, as I did with mine.

    Although I will say....Goldberg....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    He's not my cup of tea, and feel the angle has been done already. BUT, if it's designed to really get Gunner over, then it could work. If I was watching, I would honestly be like - have I gone back in time?

    Anyway, great start and I'll be reading.

    Re: Impact Wrestling (Championship), the Return to Monday Night, Live

    Prologue- Episode 0
    Before you move to Monday; there is the final Thursday episode, which is taped and will be spoiled online so you may as well play into the appetites of the internet “media’s” robbing and spoiling of your product and use them advertise your card and what you‘re promoting.

    A battle royal is booked for the Monday show and promoted for three weeks; with the order of the participants revealed in the weeks leading up to the big show. The match is to have 20 wrestlers in total and begin with four in the ring. Every three minutes a new wrestler will come to the ring and the last man standing will be declared the number one contender for the heavyweight title at the PPV after the next.

    The new modern ring is introduced with four ropes and modern turnbuckle padding.

    Hogan says the company is growing and things are going to continue to evolve; especially in the coming weeks. He announces that company and Spike have decided that the wrestlers will wear mouth pieces and open fingered (MMA) gloves from this point forward.

    It is announced that a former heavyweight champion has been signed and will be at the Monday show and take place in the heavyweight battle royal.

    A women’s title match is set up for Monday between Tara and Kim.

    Jeff Hardy defeats the television champion to be crowned the new American champion.

    Main event for Episode 0 would be a title unification between Austin Aries and Robert Roode. Aries becomes heavyweight champion of the world.


    Episode 1
    Q1: A car pulls in backstage and Goldberg steps out. The new announce team is introduced; with Bischoff, Hemme, and Taz. They put over the modern ring and the change to the entrance way; now featuring a hall with LED screens on the walls and floor. The main event is discussed along with the arrival of Goldberg. The show opens with a Texas tornado match with James, Rayne, Winter, and Tessmacher.
    Q2: The women’s title match is hyped with footage of the setup from the previous week. Wrestlers are shown backstage arriving for the battle royal. The quarter hour ends with a brawl between Rayne and James in the locker room which ends up in the showers.
    Q3: Hulk Hogan is backstage; he meets with Bill Goldberg, and alludes to some big plans he is about to announce. After a commercial break, Hogan comes to the ring with a black case; he calls Joe and Bully Ray to the ring, and he reveals a super heavyweight belt inside. He says that next Monday; the first ever super heavyweight match will take place between Joe and Bully Ray, and the winner will be crowned champion. Hogan has to step between the two men to prevent a fight.
    Q4: Kim vs. Tara. First four wrestlers come to the ring and begin the first three minutes of the royal.

    Q5: The fifth man comes to the ring in the royal at the start of the hour.
    Q6: Royal continues
    Q7: Royal continues
    Q8: Royal concludes with Goldberg winning. During the overrun, the heavyweight champion, Austin Aries, gets in the ring and KOs Goldberg with a move.
    The battle royal gives the viewers a match that lasts for more than an hour and showcases superstars and future stars to any new viewers.

    Re: Impact Wrestling (Championship), the Return to Monday Night, Live

    Episode 2
    Q1: Highlight footage is shown from the previous week of the royal; Goldberg’s debut; Goldberg winning the title shot in June at Slammiversary (or BFG if this takes place after Slammiversary); and Austin Aries knocking Goldberg out. The commentary team welcomes the viewers to Club La Vela in Panama City Beach, Florida, they lay out the matches for the night, and they plug the main event. Hogan comes to the ring and is interrupted by Austin Aries; which prompts Goldberg to come out. Security comes out and gets between the wrestlers. Hogan says he came out to announce he has come up with a match for the two tonight; they will be added to the co-main event featuring Mr. Anderson and Robert Roode.
    Q2: Adonis vs. Styles. The commentators make note that Styles and the Adonis have not met in the ring before and that Styles was eliminated from the royal before Adonis entered as the next to last man.
    Q3: Lengthy tag match; TNT vs. Velvet Love-- women go in the pool in the end with thanks to Gail Kim.
    Q4: Tag match concludes. James Storm challenges Jeff Hardy for his American championship at the upcoming PPV. 
     
    Q5: Co-Main event: Goldberg vs. Roode vs. Aries vs. Mr. Anderson.
    Q6: Tag match with The Brothers Dudley vs. Gunner and Joseph Parks with Magnus on guest commentary. Parks wrestles in a sky blue singlet and wears old school boots like Hogan.
    Q7: Video is shown from the locker room brawl the previous week to prime the audience for the next match. Madison Rayne vs. Mickie James.
    Q8: Main event: Joe vs. Bully Ray. This would be a brutal (read bloody) match that contrasts the style and realism of Impact Wrestling Championship with the kid’s show that people will watch after. Joe wins and becomes the first super heavyweight champion of the world.

    Man, it'd be helpful if you told us who was winning on the episodes rather than just say "Main Event: Goldberg v RVD"

    Will it get better, now that we're older?

    Re: Impact Wrestling (Championship), the Return to Monday Night, Live

    Episode 6:
    Q1 Footage of Hogan arriving is shown, and he is with Maria Kanellis, his new assistant (because Hogan doesn't appear on the Saturday Knockouts show). The commentary team opens the show and sets the stage for the opening match. Styles vs. Adonis 5/7. Highlights are shown from Goldberg’s match the previous week and the viewers are reminded that Austin Aries will face a wrestler of Goldberg’s choice tonight.
    Q2 Hogan’s new surrogate, Maria, is in the locker room and informs the Knockouts that tonight they will wrestle in a cage. The Knockouts segment is followed by Gunner/w Flair vs. RVD. I think Rob jobbed to Gunner earlier in the year-- so Gunner would lose this one.
    Q3 Super Mex (wearing (real) lucha libre gear and mask) vs. Parks w/Flair. Again, Flair's wrestler loses. Another promo is aired for the mystery wrestler.
    Q4 Mickie James vs. Rayne vs. Sarita vs. Kim in a cage. The top of the cage is only seven foot above the apron.

    Q5 Jeff Hardy vs. Roode vs. Mr. Anderson for the American championship
    Q6 American championship match concludes with Hardy, still champion at the 25 minute limit mark.

    Q7 Hogan is backstage and says that at the PPV; they will have a winner between Hardy, Roode, and Anderson in a three-way 60 minute iron man match, in the steel cage. Austin Aries vs. Kurt Angle begins with Goldberg watching
    Q8 Aries vs. Angle concludes. Aries wins.

    I've answered a few match results, but I left most up to the imagination of the reader because all finishes are tentative.

    Re: Impact Wrestling (Championship), the Return to Monday Night, Live

    Since I began this; the company has signed King Mo (which was a black swan event), they signed Brooke Hogan to direct the Knockouts, Ric Flair and Alex Shelley have left the company, Morgan is rumored to be going to the WWE, Sabin is said to be leaving in August, they created Open Fight Night, and they have announced that they will be going live this summer at 7PM on Thursdays. WWE has expanded Raw for at least the summer to three hours; so Monday is nolonger an option. I would still start Impact at 6PM on Thursdays which puts them further away from competing sports events. Moving forward; I’m just going to drop Shelley, Sabin, Morgan, and Flair from the story. I’m declaring defcon 2 on the tag division and creating new tag teams; because Beer Money are split and MCMG are done.

    Main Event Money: Austin “The Main Event” Aries and Robert “The Money” Roode
    Bloodlock: Williams and Daniels
    American Bulldogs or Cerberus: Harry Smith and AJ Styles
    Legion of Ruin: Terry and Zinho
    The Brothers Dudley

    3 Points of Death: Joe and Magnus with Rayne
    Grindhouse, or Satan‘s Grindhouse: Gunner and Parks with Winter
    Yellowjacket: Murphy and Silva
    Gold Standard: Kurt Angle and The Black Patriot
    Supremo: Adonis and Ion, renamed Diamond (Back) Dragon and repackaged with a luchador style mask.

    Episode 9
    Q1 Hogan calls Jeff Hardy to the ring and introduces a new stipulation for the American championship. The champion now has a world title shot; if they choose to take it, at which point the heavyweight champion comes out. If the American Intercontinental champion loses or if they win; either way, the American belt is vacated. Hardy challenges Goldberg for the belt; Goldberg tells him to name the time, and Hardy says Open Fight Night seems appropriate, next week. Hogan says, it’s official, and tells Hardy to hand over his belt.
    Q2 Three on three knockouts match with James and TNT vs. Flash and Velvet Love
    Q3 A new annual PPV theme is introduced for the September PPV-- there will be two rings and the first match announced for the PPV is a tag team elimination royal; with wrestlers eliminated via KO, pin, or submission only, to determine the number one contenders against Joe and Magnus, 3 Points of Death. The last team member (or team) left at the end of the royal will win the contendership for the tag titles. The royal will begin with two teams and a new team will enter the ring every five minutes.
