World Wrestling Federation 1992

December 22 1991:

My story begins in 2050.

I know what you are saying. How can that be? This is December 1991 and you are telling a story that happens in the future.

This is a very strange story. It involves time travel, mind switching, and professional wrestling. A very odd string of things which should make little to no sense no matter how many times I explain it.

As you are probally coming across these logs somewhere years later if you are reading them, the WWE(or WWF in this time line, because we paid off the other WWF with a huge sum of money) is not what you expect. In the previous time line before the freak accident that I am about to tell you about, a man known as Triple H married into the McMahon family and after Vince McMahon died in 2022, he ruled with an iron fist.

Vince’s son, Shane, was bitter that his father didn’t give him control of the promotion in his will so he purchased World Championship Wrestling name from the co owners Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.

This proved to be a disaster. The inner McMahon turmoil destroyed the wrestling scene. To make things worst, NWA-TNA, owned by Jeff Jarrett, was refusing to push anyone new. Jarrett continued to put himself over everyone week after week until the crowds started disappearing. They had to start holding shows in empty studios until they folded in 2030(remind you of a certain AWA).

Wrestlemania XXX happened in 2024 and it was the worst wrestlemania of all time. The Undertaker continued to be undefeated at Wrestlemania by defeating Billy Gunn(who was in the middle of yet another failed push to the top in this timeline). Triple H retained the World Heavyweight Title against John Bradshaw Layfield in the worst main event in Wrestlemania history. Hulk Hogan also fought Ric Flair in the first ever Wheelchair Match in Wrestlemania history.

The new WCW wasn’t doing too much better. It folded in 2026 and the WWE folded in 2032 after it finally ran out of the rest of Vince McMahon’s billions.

Other then a few small promotions here and there, wrestling had been set back to the days of smokey pool halls and bars.

So where do I come in you may ask? I am a scientist. A slightly deranged scientist, some say. I developed a watch that allows you to travel to any point in time. In a related note, I had a rough prototype of a machine. It allows a person to switch minds with another person. I have no use for it but I need a little excitement in my life by having every two bit criminal come after it for evil plots.

I am strange like that, if you must know.

I was tweaking my useless machine (while wearing the time piece). There was a heavy storm going on outside. The power source of my lab got struck by a huge bolt of lightning and triggered the unstable mind switching device and my time piece.

It suddenly went to black. Then I woke up…in the lockeroom…of a WWF event….in 1991.

This Tuesday in Texas to be exact. The failed WWF experiment where they wanted to have a PPV every week but the test run failed.

I looked in a nearby mirror and I did a double take.

My brain was in the body of current WWF magazine writer/junior consultant of the booking team/future Internet punching bag in the other timeline, Vince Russo

God has played a practical joke on me. There is no way around it.

I watch the show and here are the results of it.

Interconinental Champion Bret Hart defeated Skinner

Randy Savage pinned Jake Roberts in a No Disqualification Match

Davey Boy Smith pinned the Warlord

Ted DiBiase and Repo Man defeated Virgil and El Matador when Dibiase pinned Virgil.

Hulk Hogan pinned the Undertaker to win the World Title.

That was then and this is now. Since then, Jack Tunney has stripped Hulk Hogan of the World Title and has put it up in the Royal Rumble Match.

The more I think about this, I can fix Wrestling so the bottom doesn’t drop out after Vince dies.

Mucking with time does have consequences, unfortunely. This is less risky with my brain in the body of someone else then my future self coming to the past, but still the future as I know it is about to change. Hopefully for the better.

1992 is where the past gets changed to help the future.

Interview with the Undertaker and Paul Bearer

Paul Bearer: My Undertaker tasted what was rightfully his for only six days. Six days until Hulk Hogan took away the destiny from the Darkside. No one has the belt and my Undertaker is poised to capture the belt. The Royal Rumble is coming up in two weeks and the darkside will reign over the World Wrestling Federation, much longer then six days this time. The dark age will come to the WWF soon enough as my Undertaker will crush everyone in his path to the top. They will all Rest in Peace.

The Undertaker looks at the camera with a meanacing look but does not say anything.

Ric Flair interview

Ric Flair There is only one real World’s Champion in wrestling. That is the Nature Boy. I came to the World Wrestling Federation for one reason only. That is to capture the WWF World Title and become the undisputed champion in wrestling. The Nature Boy, the master of stylin’ and profilin’, kissing all the girls and making them cry. It really doesn’t matter what number I draw in the Royal Rumble because the Nature Boy has the endurance to got the distance. Ask any woman who has ever ridden Space Mountain. They know of the Nature Boy’s great endurance. The WWF World Belt is coming around the waist of the Nature Boy and that is the best thing going today. Wooo!!!!

Jake Roberts interview

The Snake is sitting in a darkened room. He pulls himself up and looks at the camera.

Jake The Snake: The Royal Rumble is coming up soon. 30 Men all battling for the biggest prize in wrestling today, the WWF World Title. Ah yes, the WWF World Title. Hulk Hogan, my good friend, never offered me a title shot when he was champion. I am certain that he had a busy schedule, not that he was afraid of losing to me or anything. Hulk, I am the only one who truly knows how you feel to see your glory snatched away from you. Trust me, Hulk. Trust me. Randy Savage, we have some unfinished business from This Tuesday In Texas. Savage, we will meet once again in the Royal Rumble and I will drive your head into the mat with the DDT. The WWF World Title belt is tailor made for heroes. It has never had a snake as the champion. It would be a shame if someone who is totally evil got his hands on the belt. That shame will happen at the Royal Rumble when I capture the WWF Title. It has stayed out of my hands for too long. Trust me, it will happen.

Hulk Hogan interview

Hulk Hogan: Hulkamania is running wilder then ever as the Royal Rumble is two weeks away. It is the chance for the Hulkster to regain what is rightfully is. All the little Hulkamaniacs are training, saying their prayers, taking their vitamins, and hoping to see Hulkamania run wild once more in the Royal Rumble Match. The last two years, The Hulkster has outlasted 30 men and captured the WWF World Title. The Hulkster doesn’t care if it the Undertaker, Ric Flair, or that evil dude, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, brother. Heck, if some of the Hulksters pals such as The Macho Man and Rowdy Roddy get in his way, they will learn what the power of Hulkamania is all about. So whatcha going to do when The Hulkster enters the Royal Rumble and regains the WWF World Title and runs wild on you, dude.

Piper: It seems like everyone is all psyched up for the Royal Rumble. Everyone wants to be the champion. I hate to break this to all the dreamers but the Hot Rod is trailor made for the WWF Championship. Plus the belt would look good with my kilt, as a fashion statement.

Lord Alfred Hayes is backstage with Randy Savage.

Hayes: Greetings gentlemen, I am backstage with one of the most gifted wrestlers in the World Wrestling Federation, that being the Macho Man Randy Savage. Mr. Savage, you will be facing a brute of a man known as the Warlord but surely you cannot be one hundred percent coming off that brutish attack from Mr. Perfect, Ric Flair, and Jake Roberts this past weekend.

Savage: Let me tell you something, Lord Alfred. It doesn’t matter how many times people jump me. They will have to deal with the Madness every time. Sure they put me done but you cannot keep the Macho Man down for very long. They better hope they don’t get in my path in the Royal Rumble or something very, very scary will happen to those punks. The Macho Man will be on fire and recapture what is rightfully his, the WWF World Title. As for the Warlord, well the Macho Man has to work off some stress and anger, so you have had the misfortune of dealing with the Madness tonight. Ohhh yeahhh!!!!

Jake Roberts: Yes I know, Mooney. How can I look myself in the mirror after I beat up the two sacred cows Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage? Those two have gotten favorable treatment for two long. I have been in the WWF for 6 years and I yet to get a World Title Shot. They got off easy, because I could have done something much more sinister to those two.

Wrestler has cocaine problem, sent to rehab, and then fired

The WWF is under a microscope after the events of the Dr. George Zahorian trial last year and are in a constant attempt to prove that they are clean to various sources in the media, steroids or other wise.  This cost them one of their brightest stars. Shawn Michaels, who was ready to get a push, admitted he had a cocaine problem. The WWF, not wanting to have known drug abusers on there roster, sent Michaels to rehab, along with firing him. The WWF is paying Michaels’s rehab bills but after that, that is the end of the relationship between the WWF and Shawn Michaels. This would end the scheduled Marty Jannetty vs Shawn Michaels match that was planned for this year’s Wrestlemania.

I am begininning to like this, your storylines seem exactly like in 1992, which i do like that you at least start your first ppv mimicking the real thing.

I dont have any complaints per say, but I think you should at least update and give a card for the Royal Rumble, I almost have to read word for word to see who is fighting whom.

Anyway. keep this up, i am definitely enjoying it. And wasn't jannetty still "in surgery" in january od 1992?

edit: also I agree with the sentiments of the too many jobber squashes, what I would do is maybe 3 or so jobber squashes, 2 good main event matches, and soem hype for your PPV/big event

Monsoon: Brain, we have a great show for our fans tonight. Hulk Hogan will make a rare Prime Time Wrestling apprence tonight.

Heenan: That egomaniac Hogan has finally graced us with his presense tonight. I was hoping that he would stay away. Ric Flair is itching to get his hands on that fraud at the Royal Rumble. I will proudly stand by the Real World’s Champion and I have told him all of Hogan’s secrets that I found out from a couple of business contacts of mine.

Monsoon: Who would these contracts be, Brain?

Heenan: That will be for me to know and you to find out. Let’s take it down to ringside to my longtime friend Mr. Perfect and McMahon, try not to talk too much because your voice makes small children cry.

We cut back to the studio as Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan talk.

Gorilla: Impressive win by the newcomer, Papa Shango.

Heenan: For once, Monsoon, I agree with you. He could become a champion in the next couple of years. If he takes the advice of someone such as myself, he would be unstoppable. A 70 percent cut of his earnings would be a good enough bargain for the advice of the Brain.

Gorilla: Will you stop?

Heenan: Just telling the truth, Monsoon. My advice is pretty valuable.

Monsoon: Moving on from this, coming up next we have Bret Hart facing Irwin R. Schyster. This is not for the Interconinental Title.

Heenan: Which is a pity. IRS would make a fine Interconinental Champion and he would be able to get more airtime to talk about these humanoids being the tax cheats they are.

Vince McMahon: Impressive win by the Hitman. He is looking great as Interconinental Champion.

Mr. Perfect: Yeah, McMahon. He is lucky that I am retired, otherwise I would beat him for the Interconinental Title to avenge that fluke of a victory he had last year at Summerslam. The Hitman may be good but he is not….Perfect.

McMahon: Bret is looking ahead to this Sunday when he does battle with the Mountie for the WWF Interconinental Championship. That should be a great battle, one for the record books.

Perfect: The Mountie will teach the Hitman a lesson, McMahon and walk out with the Interconinental Championship.

Awesome! I love that Jake won. I was hoping he would but never thought he'd actually win. I hope he has some good feuds with Macho or Hogan, or even a feud with Taker and let Hogan and Macho feud.

Jake Roberts interview

The Following Interview was taped after the Royal Rumble Match:

Jake Roberts: You smell that stench. Yes, I can smell it too. It is the stench of change. A brand new World Wrestling Federation Champion has been crowned on this night. The dark days will fall over the World Wrestling Federation. Myself and my brother of darkness, the Undertaker made this master plan. We fooled Ric Flair. We fooled Hogan. We fooled Savage. They trusted that nothing was wrong. Well you cannot trust a snake. See people call me evil, but that term is very vague. I perfer the term sadistically diabolical myself. The era of the Snake begins and there is not stop. Jack Tunney is powerless to stop this. He is nothing but a puppet on the string. Remember it is his fault that I have the belt. He vacated it and I swooped in for the chance. The only reason why I haven’t been the champion before is Hogan is a gutless coward who ducked me for 6 years. Trust me, Hogan. Now you will feel the pain of being shut out of the title scene that rots your soul to the core.

At this the door comes open as the Bushwhackers enter.

Luke: Don’t worry, Heenan. We wouldn’t dirty our tounges by licking your face, mate.

Heenan: Oh good.

Butch: We worked on something however. Have some sardines.

The Bushwhackers open up some sardine cans and squash them in Heenan’s face. Heenan runs out of the room to get washed out so it is a good time as any to throw it down to Vince McMahon and Mr. Perfect for this next match.

Hogan: Well let me tell you something, Sean Mooney. Last night that no good dirty snake, Jake Roberts, avoided being thrown over the top rope and stole the World Wrestling Federation Title from not only me but all the Hulkamaniacs.

Hogan, you only pushed the buttons to get a title shot against me at Wrestlemania V. Let me make one thing clear. I do not consider you as a friend. I consider you nothing a backstabber and a manipulator who should not be trusted. Yeah, you may have done some good things. It was all for the good of only one person. Hulk Hogan. You made yourself look good. You got all these people drinking your kool-aid. Now the fans are good but they can be a little too trusting. I will tag team with you once and only once Hogan. This is for the World Wrestling Federation title shot. Don’t cross me Hogan, between now and Saturday Night’s Main Event. Don’t stick your nose in my business, brotha. I have no problems with dragging a dead tag team partner to the ring if you cross me. Oh Yeahhh!!!!

I will be back up the rankings to take what is mine. I am the only man fit to be the World Wrestling Federation Champion. The excellence is nothing but Ric Flair. I will put down whoever Jack Tunney decides to put in my way until there is no choice over then to give me the title shot. Mooney, your time with greatness is up, as I have to formulate my strategy to get back in the title rankings.

Flair storms off, still not too happy about losing out in the Royal Rumble Match last night.

I like the idea for the tag match at Main Event. Is Macho a heel now, or just a competitive face? I didnt like Backlund beating Hercules, but I think Snuka and Koko could be a good tag team. Cant wait for Main Event.

Royal Rumble Booking Decision changed at 11th hour

The original plan was for Ric Flair to win the Royal Rumble and lose the belt to Hogan at Wrestlemania but that was obviously changed. Hogan is looking to take some time off after Wrestlemania  and is said not to want to job to Flair so the belt went on Jake Roberts instead. There are several rumored plans for Wrestlemania but the official plans have been kept under tight wraps that only Vince McMahon and the wrestlers involved in the main event at Wrestlemania know about it. Rumors that 20/20 is airing a piece on steroids in Wrestling in March that could have some information that will send shockwaves through the WWF and Hogan doesn’t want to be around when a possible scandel erupts. Hogan even hinted on a recent radio interview that his days in the WWF as a full time active wrestler could be numbered.

Bret Hart interview

Gene Okerlund: Ladies and Gentlemen, I am with one of the most impressive technicians to come along in a long time, that being Bret “The Hitman” Hart. Bret, you have beeh having a lot of tough challengers lined up for your Interconinental Title reign.

Bret Hart: Yes indeed, Gene, there is a lot of men who want a crack at what I have. The Interconinental Title Belt is the next best thing to World Title glory so having this belt would put anyone in line for World Title shots down the road. I have a list of challengers a mile long, knocking down the door of the Excellence of Execution. One name that sticks out most of all is Ted DiBiase. Ted DiBiase is a great wrestler, much like myself. He may not be the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be, but he is good enough to warrant a title shot. The problem is, money did not buy this title. He has the Million Dollar Belt which is nothing but a sham of a title. It is not officially recognized which this belt is. It is nothing but a vanity piece as he rarely defends the belt. To be a true champion, you must defend the belt week after week against some of the best wrestlers in the world. I am offering DiBiase to put up or shut up. I am offering him a chance at this belt on Saturday’s Nights Main Event on February 15th. We will find out how good he is.

Okerlund: All right, Hitman, thank you for your time and it should be interesting to see if Ted DiBiase accepts the challenge that you laid down.

Hayes:Ladies and Gentlemen, I am standing by backstage with the Million Dollar Man, Ted DiBiase. Mr. DiBiase, there have been some comments executed against you by one Bret Hart. Your thoughts on the matter.

DiBiase: I heard his comments Hayes. The fact of the matter is this. Bret Hart is nothing but a middle class working man. He is way below my interest. The only reason why I would waste my time with him as that he has something I want. Yes, Lord Hayes, I may have the money, but a piece of gold is the sure way to get these bums in the crowd to recognize me. Remember, Bret, everyone has a price for the Million Dollar Man. I could buy someone to get the belt off of you, lay down for me in a match, and I won’t even have to bother you. Money, Bret. You can have all the wrestling ability in the world but it won’t mean anything against the cash flow of the Million Dollar Man. This interview is over.

Paul Bearer is standing in a backstage set with coffins and tombstone.

Bearer: Oh yesss. Welcome to another addition of your favorite supernatural talk show, the funeral parlord. We have a very special guest tonight, The World Wrestling Federation Champion himself, Jake “The Snake” Roberts.

Jake Roberts walks up the set in a gray three piece suit. He shakes has with Paul Bearer and sets the World Wrestling Federation title belt down on a nearby coffin.

Roberts: It is a pleasure being here, Paul.

Bearer: Mr. Roberts, you just won the World Wrestling Federation title a week ago at the Royal Rumble. On Saturday Night’s Main Event you will team up with my Undertaker to face Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage.

Roberts: Aw yes. If Hogan or Savage get the decision, they get the title shot at Wrestlemania. If they don’t, it goes to someone else. Providing that Hogan and Savage can stop bickering at each other long enough to team up. Their union is a shaky one at best, Paul Bearer. Both men want what I have and they have to team up to get it. Myself and the Undertaker, are a solid tag team. We have many things in common. We have both been World Wrestling Federation Champion. We both have two of the most deadly finishers in the WWF today. We both are things that go bump in the night. The only thing Hogan and Savage have in common is that they bicker at each other. Fate has a fickle way of teaming up two men who can’t stand each other. Trust me, I will pin either Hogan or Savage and erase both of their chances of ever getting a chance at my World Wrestling Federation Title in one fell swoop. Hopefully they put up just a little bit of a fight, enough to be entertaining.

Bearer: Thank you for your time, Mr. Roberts. Next week I will have Hulk Hogan on the funeral parlor, to offer a counterpoint on what was said.

Roberts picks up the belt and leaves as the crowd in the arena boos.

Cool to see Jake playing games with Macho and Hogan. You play their characters realistically. I think it would be cool to see Jake beat Macho and Hogan, only to have Taker ask for the title shot. Or a Hogan/Jake/Macho Triple Threat.

IRS: Don’t you dare call me Irwin, Sean Mooney. The name is I.R.S. You want to know why I am the most hated man in the World Wrestling Federation. I shall tell you why. All of you fans are nothing but a bunch of tax cheats. You don’t pay for taxes and that disgusts me quite frankly. One of the biggest tax cheats is my opponent when the WWF returns to Madison Square Garden this weekend, that being Virgil. It is bad enough that Virgil is a street thug without any culture, but he doesn’t pay his taxes, so I am going to give him a personal audit in Madison Square Garden. In fact, Sean Mooney, I have on good authority that you cheated on your taxes last year. Well I am about to give you a personal audit…

IRS shoves Mooney to the ground and rips his wallet out of his pocket. IRS opens the wallet and takes out about 13 one dollar bills.

IRS: That’s all the money you have, Mooney. No wonder you shop for your clothing at K-Mart. Well I will be back, and you will learn to pay your taxes in full. You have not seen the last of I.R.S.

We cut back to Prime Time Studios.

Monsoon: Impressive performance from the rookie Rob Zakowski in that match but in the end the wily veteran, Ted DiBiase showed him up.

Heenan: That ham-en-egger never had a chance. DiBiase is kind enough to let him think that he might have a chance before squashing all of his hopes and dreams.

Monsoon: DiBiase is on a roll and he could very well keep it up if he beats his former bodyguard Virgil this weekend on Superstars of Wrestling.

Heenan: I am very confident of Mr. DiBiase’s abilities to take care of his ungrateful former bodyguard. DiBiase gave Virgil the power and the glory, but Virgil threw it all the away for his foolish pride.

Monsoon: Virgil is a lot better off then he was when he was DiBiase’s bodyguard. He was the Million Dollar Champion and he beat The Million Dollar Man back at Summerslam. Virgil is an impressive young man and knows how to wrestle.

Heenan: If you call barroom brawling, wrestling, Monsoon.

Randy Savage interview

Mean Gene Okerlund is backstage with Randy Savage.

Mean Gene: Ladies and Gentlemen, I am with a former World Wrestling Federation Champion, Randy “Macho Man” Savage. Macho Man, you will have to team up with Hulk Hogan and score the pin on either Jake Roberts or the Undertaker if you are to get another WWF World Title Shot. Your thoughts on this matter?

Savage: Gene, let me tell you something. Something smells very fishy to the Macho Man. This sounds like a set-up. Hulk Hogan, I have little reason to trust him and on the same plane of insanity, Hogan has very little reason to trust me. Hogan, you make one false move on Saturday Night’s Main Event and be prepared to get taken down by the Madness. I am prepared to expect the unexpected but I have reason to expect that this could be a three on one set-up. I hate Jake Roberts with a passion Hogan, before you even came into the picture. You only started caring about the issue when he got his evil hands on the championship of the world. That is all you care about, Hogan. The gold. That is what drove the Mega Powers apart in the first place. Or is that what you want? You better not be setting me up for a three on one beating Hogan. You will not live to manipulate another person Hogan, if you do. You try to be buddies with guys who are mostly threats to your sacred spot. I have little reason to doubt that you will do the same with Jake Roberts and the Undertaker if it gets you closer to the championship. Remember this Hogan. Double cross me, stab me in the back, and I will snap your neck like a Slim Jim. Ohhh yeahhhh!!!!

Savage storms out of the interview area looking psycotic.

Bobby Heenan starts making cookoo noises after the Macho Man’s interview.

Monsoon: Will you stop, Brain!

Heenan: I am only telling the truth Monsoon, like a good broadcast journalist would. The Macho Man’s elevator does not go all the way to the top. He is a few bricks short of an entire house. His driveway doesn’t go all the way to the house. To put it simply, he is totally crazy and if I was Hogan, and thankfully I am not, I would be very worried that the Macho Man would fly off the handle if Hogan looks at him cross eyed.

Monsoon: You may be on the right track, Brain. Savage did choke out Hogan at the end of Wrestling Challenge yesterday when he thought Hogan attacked him when Jake Roberts in reality did.

Heenan: Of course I’m right, Monsoon. I am the Brain. I do believe we have a Prime Time Wrestling Debut to take care of so let’s take it down to ringside for this new superstar.

PTW Debut:

After the next set of commercials, the camera fades to an island. There are a couple of pineapples lying on the table and a tall muscular man with brownish blond hair, a tie-dye t-shirt, and blue jeans with sandles enters the picture.

The man picks up the pineapple and squeezes it with his hands over a wooden glass in an amazing bit of power, causing the pineapple juice to pour out of the glass. The man picks up the glass and takes a drink before pausing.

Man: This tastes good, but the taste will be twice as good once I enter the World Wrestling Federation. This pineapple will be the skull of anyone who gets in my way.

Mooney: I have an exclusive interview with one of the legends in this sport. He is a former World Wrestling Federation World Champion. He is an All-American. He is Bob Backlund. It is a pleasure to interview you Bob.

Backlund: Thank you. It is good to get some interview time again.

Mooney: You have returned and you look to be in good shape. What do you hope to accomplish in the WWF today?

Backlund: 9 years ago I was the WWF World Champion. Then all the sudden, I left the WWF because I was disgusted in what the business was becoming. I am sorry to all the wrestlers who make a living these days but it was becoming a circus. You had to have a flashy gimmick to get any airtime or you lingered at the bottom of the card. I am here to do what I do best. That is wrestler. I am a wrestler. That is what I am. I value clean living and fair play above all else. The current WWF World Champion is nothing but a cheater and a thief. He set a snake on another man more then once and that just isn’t right for the wrestling business. There can be a place for an All American Wrestler in this day and age. Among all the gimmicks, there is Bob Backlund. I don’t have a gimmick. I get in the ring and I wrestle. That is who I am. That is what I do. So to all my younger fans out there, remember. If you work out and maintain a clean life, you too can be a professional wrestler. Taking performance enhancing drugs is not the answer. Clean living is in the answer. I hope to maintain a positive legacy before I retire. Wrestling is my strong point and I am stickng to it.
