EWR 2014 Stats Update: January ***PLEASE USE SPOILER TAGS***

Recommended Posts

After watching Evolve 25 and seeing the FIP title defended in the opener I think we should add the WWN (World Wrestling Network)

This contains DGUSA, Evolve, Shine, and FIP. It just seems silly to have FIP separate when they are in the network.

So Changing the DG-EVO the WWN (Full name World Wrestling Network) and add all FIP superstars.

also looking over all the roster pages I can see if a brand split can be worked. The way it seems set up is DGUSA is the top of the food chain, then Evolve, FIP, and then Shine

If we need a new promotion I still think Beyond Wrestling is the best choice. While they do have an agreement with CZW they are there own entity running events like Tournament for Tomorrow and Feeding Frenzy. I will help out with a roster if need be

Wanted to comment real quick on this...

If we wanted to, FIP could be merged with DG-EVO without any issues of workers running out of promotions, at least that I saw after a quick analysis. The same cannot be said for Shine. That's one of the reasons that Shine and Shimmer were merged to begin with, so that it would free up a promotion slot for some workers that otherwise would have to be removed from a promotion.

So, if we are wanting to do this, I'd say, let's merge DG-EVO and FIP as three brand splits for WWN and leave Shine with Shimmer, at least for the time being. Shimmer/Shine's roster needs some work done anyway, so once that's done, we could re-evaluate how many workers would be affected by moving Shine to WWN, or leaving them with Shimmer.

TL/DR; If we're gonna do it, let's focus on moving FIP first and hold off a bit on Shine.

As for promotion additions/removals, there's a few in the data that I've been eyeing for removal that could free up a couple slots for new promotions to be added. Since I brought it up, here's the one's I have contemplated putting up for removal:

APW: Honestly, this promotion has always been a headache for me. Info seems to be hard to come by (at least for me) and is usually extremely outdated. With their owner, Roland Alexander, passing away a couple months back, I'm not even sure who is in charge of APW and their website seems to have gone away as well.

LLUSA: The last time their Facebook page was even updated was October. I'd be willing to bet that, even if they do still run, the ingame roster is horribly out of date. They have a website, but who knows when that was last updated?

SCW: The "other" Squared Circle Wrestling. I like it because it's the only regional promotion in the game that is based in Canada, but someone mentioned a couple months back that it needs a "massive overhaul." A quick glance at their website, it looks like they still run, but the ingame roster is horribly off and many workers on their roster aren't even in the game. My suggestion would be to remove it, add the needed workers (if anyone has stats for them) and rebuild it from scratch when we can make it more accurate.

Thoughts, suggestions and opinions, as always, are welcome.

-Bill

That sounds like a pretty good idea but to be honest I haven't been following the recent updates too much. APW sounds like a no-brainer to get rid of if there's another promotion people want to be added.

I agree with removing all of the above.

One promotion that could be added along with Beyond Wrestling is AIW. They've been gaining a lot of steam lately.

I agree, AIW has had quite a lot of buzz over the last year or so and most of their roster is in the data

Change Kazuchika Okada's Secondary Finisher to Red Ink (Submission)

I agree with WWN as a promotion, especially with the interconnection. I would make Sal the owner and Satoshi Oji an unsackable road agent. I don't think we should DGUSA and Evolve as seperate brands. Most in those two float (to an extent FIP is as well.)

Roster:

Aaron Epic: FIP

Akira Tozawa: DGUSA

Amasis: FIP

Andrew Everett: EVOLVE/FIP

AR Fox: DGUSA/EVOLVE

Arik Cannon: Remove from DG-EVO

Biff Busick: EVOLVE

BxB Hulk: DGUSA

Caleb Konley: DGUSA/EVOLVE/FIP

Chasyn Rance: FIP

Chris Hero: DGUSA/EVOLVE

Christina Von Eerie: DGUSA

Chuck Taylor: DGUSA/EVOLVE

CIMA: DGUSA

Corey Hollis: FIP

David Starr: FIP

Derek Ryze: FIP

Drew Gulak: DGUSA/EVOLVE

Eddie Cruz: FIP

Eita: DGUSA

Genki Horiguchi: DGUSA

Gran Akuma: FIP

Harlem Bravado: DGUSA/EVOLVE/FIP

Homicide: Remove from FIP

Jake Manning: Remove from DG-EVO

Jay Rios: FIP

Jigsaw: DGUSA/EVOLVE

Johnny Gargano: DGUSA/EVOLVE

Johnny Vandal: FIP

Jon Davis: DGUSA/EVOLVE/FIP

Jon Williams: FIP

Jonathan Gresham: FIP

Kenneth Cameron: FIP

Lancelot Bravado: DGUSA/EVOLVE/FIP

Latin Dragon: FIP

Larry Dallas: DGUSA/EVOLVE/FIP

Leva Bates: FIP

Lince Dorado: FIP

Mark Angelosetti: EVOLVE

Masaaki Mochizuki: DGUSA

Masato Yoshino: DGUSA

Matt Jackson: DGUSA/EVOLVE

Mia Yim: DGUSA/EVOLVE/FIP

Mister Saint Laurent: FIP

Mr. Milo Beasley: FIP

Naoki Tanisaki/T-HAWK: DGUSA

Naruki Doi: DGUSA

Nick Jackson: DGUSA/EVOLVE

Orange Cassidy: DGUSA/EVOLVE

Papadon: Remove?

Pinkie Sanchez: FIP

Rich Swan: DGUSA/EVOLVE/FIP

Scott Reed: Remove from FIP

Shane Strickland: EVOLVE/FIP

SHINGO: DGUSA

Sugar Dunkerton: FIP

Susumu Yokosuka: DGUSA

Teddy Stigma: FIP

Tommy Taylor: FIP

Tony Nese: DGUSA/EVOLVE

Trent Barreta: EVOLVE/FIP

Trey Williams: FIP

Trina Michaels: FIP

Uhaa Nation: DGUSA/EVOLVE/FIP

YAMATO: DGUSA

As you can see there are a good number of FIP only talent and a decent number of DGUSA only guys (mainly from Japan) and the rest wrestle in two out of three if not all three.

Add a new stable with Tony Nese, Trent Barreta and Mia Yim called Premier Athlete Brand

What about adding Wrestling Cares Association as a promotion. A large number of the talent are in the game.

there might be one problem though; with the roster being as big as it is, surely a promotion that size would have a mass exodus in the beginning if you're not playing as them, right?

I would cut down the Japanese talent though to fix that.

Akira Tozawa last appeared in July 2013

BxB Hulk last appeared in March 2012 (remove)

CIMA last appeared in July 2013

Eita last appeared in July 2013 (I would only remove because he is listed on the guest/alumni roster) (Also remove from AAA)

Genki Horiguchi last appeared in November 2012 (remove)

Masaaki Mochizuki last appeared in November 2013

Masato Yoshino last appeared in March 2012 (remove)

Naruki Doi last appeared in January 2012 (remove)

SHINGO last appeared in April 2013 (remove)

Susumu Yokosuka last appeared in November 2013

T-HAWK last appeared in July 2013 (I would only remove because he is listed on the guest/alumni roster)

YAMATO last appeared in July 2012 (remove)

So that's eight removals just from Dragon Gate talent.

Looking at FIP

Aaron Epic, David Ryze (most recent with WWN Live), Jonathan Gresham, Mr. Milo Beasley & Sugar Dunkerton last wrestled there in July so I think they can be removed.

Amasis last appeared in July so I think he could be removed.

Corey Hollis last wrestled there in March so I think he can be removed.

Homicide and Tommy Taylor last wrestled there in April so I think they can be removed.

Kenneth Cameron last wrestled there in August so I think he can be removed.

NOTE: Shane Strickland last wrestled in July but still wrestles for DGUSA and Evolve as of November so keep him

That's ten more removals from FIP, making 18 total removals for the promotion. That is on top of removing Scott Reed, Arik Cannon and Papadon as per my previous post.

Information on WCA: Wrestling Cares Association can be found here I would add Aaron Aguilera, Adam Cole, Adam Page, Adam Pearce, Alex Koslov, B-Boy, Brandon Gatson, Brian Cage, Cassidy Riley, Drake Younger, Johnny Gargano (over 2CW), Katarina Leigh, Kyle Mathews, Oliver John, Papadon, Pepper Parks, Rocky Romero, Ryan Taylor, Scorpio Sky, Shane Ballard, Shannon Ballard, Steve Anthony, Timothy Thatcher & Willie Mack.

Add Wesley David Richards, Dave Richards and Derek Billington for Davey Richards alter egos.

Add John Cahill for Eddie Edwards alter egos.

I don't know if Squared Circle is really the best choice since its roster is rather small and mostly contains people that are highly active in other promotions and students of their training centre.

In the area the most active promotions are Alpha 1, Smash, Battle war and C*4. C*4 contains pretty much the entire upper roster of all three other promotions combined. I can give a full suggestion when I am able as to who is in game and would need to be in it and who would need to be added.

Outside of that I think AIW has the biggest claim to being added since they have become one of the bigger promotions lately.

where did you hear that last part?

I know its still a month away and we don't know how it will work out yet, how will the WWE Network affect the game? I mean should it be included in the networks, and should NXT be added to the list of WWE shows since it will be on the network? Also how will having the PPV's on the network effect the PPV's in general? Just a bit curious on thoughts on this from people.

If NXT/Superstars are airing solely on the network, it should definitely be added. As for ratings and stuff like that I'm not too sure.

IMO the Pay-Per-Views should stay as they are right now unless something really drastic happens.

Isn't The Scene still active in FIP? I know it isn't with Scott Reed anymore but do the refer to Larry Dallas' stable of wrestlers (Johnny Vandal and The Bravados) as well as Trina Michaels?

I would personally leave Monster Express for the time being as Tozawa was active during the second to last DGUSA weekend (and I think went face) and Ricochet and Uhaa Nation are both active in DGUSA. Though since the Evolve merger, the Dragon Gate emphasis has gone down dramatically.

Rename The American Wolves to The Wolves.

I would leave Sting because TNA has a real habit of trolling the audience with contracts and firing angles.

In an update, I would remove Mini Park from the game because it is the deceased Gemelo Muerte II.

I agree that it is muddy but I think it should remain PPV for now due to the fact that besides DirectTV (who have always been stingy with wrestling) no cable provider has rumored to drop the PPVs in light of the Network.

If anything I would see WWE Network as a new network in the game.

If NXT/Superstars are airing solely on the network, it should definitely be added. As for ratings and stuff like that I'm not too sure.

IMO the Pay-Per-Views should stay as they are right now unless something really drastic happens.

Two problems

  1. NXT is a developmental program
  2. NXT airs the same night as Main Event currently which is impossible in the game. The only "free day" is Tuesday or Saturday (due to PPV)

With the (possible) change over from DG-EVO and FIP to WWN, that was why I said The Scene should stay in due to being active in FIP.

Tony Nese only did a single tour with Dragon Gate but no report of a return is coming. This is why I also didn't suggest Toryumon commitments for Mike Sydal, Flamita or Rocky Lobo (though not in the game.) If they return, sure.

I do agree with the LLUSA removal, they have only ran a handful of shows the last year.

IF DG-EVO and FIP are merged into WWN, Here's what the events should look like IMO,

January: Evolve January
February: DGUSA Way of the Ronin
March: FIP Establish Dominance
April: DGUSA Mercury Rising
May: Evolve May
June: Evolve June
July: DGUSA Enter The Dragon
August: FIP Heat Stroke
September: Evolve September
October: FIP With Malice
November: DGUSA Freedom Fight
December: FIP In Full Force
As for Networks I think Fox Sports 1 should be added (This is different than Fox Sports Regional in that it is a single network rather than Regional being the former Sports Channel localized networks.) I would say everything should be similar to NBC Sports Net.

Looking at the list of tag teams to be deactivated, why not outright delete them? Teams like AR Fox and Sabu or rk-NO!, where it's reasonable to believe that they won't team again, can certainly be deleted without much outcry.

Quick note on the WWE Network:

As it currently stands, based on the information available, I have no plans on adding the WWE Network to the game in any capacity. Here's my reasoning:

1: If it were added as a network, any promotion could potentially get a TV deal with them. TNA or ROH running their shows on WWE Network? Not realistic at all. The WWE Network will only be airing WWE owned/crated content.

2: To make NXT a bookable promotion in the game, the workers would have to all be removed from development. We tried that a couple years back and ended up putting it back to a developmental territory almost immediately. Superstars is taped during RAW and Smackdown shows, so it's not really a "new show." Granted, Main Event isn't, either, but at least it airs on a physical, tangible network that could potentially be accessed by any other promotion in the game. As stated before, WWE Network isn't going to be available to make deals with TNA, ROH, or any other ingame promotion, at least not currently. If that changes, we can revisit.

3: While the PPV's will all air on WWE Network, they are also remaining available as Pay-Per-View Events. Also, it would be very unrealistic in the game for the #1 promotion to not have any monthly events.

So, again, based on the info we have regarding the WWE Network currently, in relation to how EWR game mechanics work, it makes the most realistic sense at this time to not include the WWE Network in any capacity. Hopefully, that makes sense, when looking at it from the standpoint of making the game as realistic as possible.

Gameplay wise I think you'd have a losing battle trying to work it in anyway, until such time as they just don't do PPVs and withdraw from tv (i.e. never), I'd just leave it as is.
