Features real locations they had planned, plus my own little pathways.

    If anyone wants to borrow it, let me know by either replying here, repping, or PMing. Just thought I'd bring that up, as it could be an option for anyone who wants it to be.
    You are a hero. Yes please that would be amazing


    RIP Brodie Lee. You will be missed

    Hi Y'all

    I am working on something new and won't be posting any time soon but I just have a question that would help me with the new project. Is it wrong to book people like Austin Theory since they were accused but haven't been convicted? Its a question of curiosity because like I don't know

    It is your call completely. I made a decision to ditch a few of the wrestlers accused when my thread started and depending on court cases they may never come back (aka Riddle) but it is 100% your call. It's whatever you feel comfortable with booking.

    I don't have a problem with it. At one point I was plotting out a 2007 NWA project that would've featured Joey Ryan. Whatever you're happy with, is my advice

    To be honest mate, it's totally up to you. You're never gonna please everyone either way. I personally wouldn't do it, cause I see it as putting them on a pedistal, but at the end of the day it's your thread and if you're okay with it, all the power to you it doesn't make you a bad person or a enabler or anything, after all it's just fan fiction after all

    You could also bring back any number of defunct WWF shows for it depending on how you want to run it. Have Bret Hart as the commissioner for Maple Leaf Wrestling and run shows across Canada, Super Astros with somebody like Rey Mysterio or a Guerrero as the GM running across Mexico, or just have it seem like an older territory with something like Tuesday Night Titans, All-Stars Wrestling, or even Saturday Morning Slam.
    I hadn't really thought of older shows. I'll have to take a look. Nice thought.

    I do like using old territorial era companies that the WWE owns as "new" developmental companies.

    Tough situation. Its much like booking someone past their death point or booking Chris Benoit.... there is no "right" way. As Chaddes and Roy have said, there is no right way. Its up to what you are comfortable with, and you can't please everyone. Any decision you make - not on this but in general - can turn off a potential reader. You want to accommodate your readers but you absolutely can't appease everyone and make everyone happy. Be selfish in this regard. If you want to book certain individuals, do it. You don't even really need to apologize for it or dance around the issue. This is fantasy booking - emphasis on the fantasy. if you want to pretend that a shitty person isn't that shitty (or at least ignore it), do it. Let's be honest - very few projects make Vince McMahon out to be as shitty of a human being as he can be. Similarly, if someone wants to book thru the past 18 months and pretend COVID never happened.... that's very fucking understandable.

    Might be the wrong person to ask. I once mapped out a show that would've taken all the cancelled wrestlers and put them in the same promotion. The main event would've been Joey Ryan and Marty Scurll. The announcer would've been a total dick and gave them messed up introa. Like Joey would've been Joey never invite him to your wedding, he might bang your bride Ryan. And Marty would've had something like appearing at your local high schools looking for troubled girls with Daddy issues Marty it's cool in England Scurll.

    But I never did anything with it. It was more a concept based on how do you ever bring these guys back and get away with it. You'd have to lean into it, give zero f*cks and be as offensive and controversial as possible.

    But I never did anything with it.
