    THE AUDITION STAGE

    A TRUE NXT TAKEOVER - WWE FACES AN NXT INVASION...

    PRELUDE - NXT issues a war cry when their biggest stars invade an edition of WWE RAW, destroying WWE stars John Cena and Seth Rollins during a main-event title match in scenes similar to the Nexus' debut many years prior. Samoa Joe and Finn Balor lead the troops into battle, and over the next few weeks more statements are made by the NXT roster. Bayley shocks fans when she lays out new divas champ Charlotte and then Sasha Banks during their title match-up. Enzo and Big Cass make their main roster debuts by putting both Dudley's through a table. Kevin Owens tries in vain to buddy up to his former NXT compatriots, but is stunned when Hideo Itami and Sami Zayn appear, leaving him in ruins after a vicious 2-on-1 attack. Who has put the NXT stars up to this and what will happen next?

    YOUR OBJECTIVE - You name the man behind NXT's war cry. Shane McMahon? Paul Heyman? Triple H? You decide. After you've decided upon an NXT authority figure, you'll book a huge super-card (at least seven matches) for the biggest ever NXT TAKEOVER. NXT TAKEOVER: WAR OF THE WORLDS. This card must feature NXT vs. WWE matches only. We're looking for at least seven NXT stars vs. WWE stars in matches. Think of the Invasion 2001 card, only better.

    ADDENDUM - Send your cards to WMS via PM. You have ONE WEEK (09/09 to 16/09) to complete this task. Following this, WMS will send them anonymously to RT and PB who will draft accordingly. Whoever they draft, they will mentor for the rest of the competition. Additionally, I'll leave a couple of paragraphs of feedback on each card which will be given to you after the drafting is done. No eliminations will take place - this is simply an audition.

    STAGE ONE ~ THE PROMO

    SO, YOU THINK YOU CAN PROMO?


    YOUR OBJECTIVE ~ You are to cut a promo using one of the three scenarios I, RT and PB have devised. You have the options of three different characters, all with three different motives. You may find that you find certain scenarios more difficult than the other - you have free reign over which works best for you. As long as you stick to your chosen scenario and whatever backstory supports it, we're satisfied. The three scenarios are as follows...

    THE PUNK SCENARIO CM Punk stuns the wrestling and MMA world when he returns to WWE television one night after WrestleMania 32. Having narrowly lost in his one and only MMA contest thus far, what are Punk's reasons for returning at this time? Who is/are his targets? How long is he back for? Is he acting heelish at all? You have a lot of creative control here. Make it meaningful.

    THE HEYMAN SCENARIO At Wrestlemania 32 we witnessed The Undertaker get laid to rest for good by Brock Lesnar in one of the most brutal battles in WWE history. The following night on Raw, Brock Lesnar stands in the ring beside Paul Heyman, who unleashes possibly his best promo to date.

    THE BRYAN SCENARIO Daniel Bryan returns from injury. Halfway through his comeback match Triple H comes out and stops the match. He received a recent report from the WWE's medical staff and for Daniel's own safety, he's stopping the match. Over the next few weeks it emerges that Triple H paid off a doctor to say Bryan wasn't healthy because he didn't want him back. BOOM, the Bryan/Authority angle is back on. Fast forward a few months, Bryan is leading a team against The Authority at Survivor Series as the conclusion to this multi-year angle. If Team Bryan wins, the authority is gone for good. It's the go-home Raw - Bryan has a chance to stand in the ring for his final promo before Survivor Series. Write it.

    ADDENDUM ~ Send your cards to WMS via PM. You have 10 days. The deadline is the midnight of Monday September 28 - GMT time. No entries sent after this time will be accepted. In the time leading to your deadline, your respective mentor will post advice on what to and not to do to help you with this task.
    Sit down. Be humble.

    STAGE TWO ~ THE STORYLINE

    THE BEST STORYLINE THERE IS
    THE BEST STORYLINE THERE WAS
    THE BEST STORYLINE THERE EVER WILL BE!


    YOUR OBJECTIVE ~ You will book a three-month revisionist storyline -- no more, no less -- revolving around the direction of Bret Hart using one of the three below scenarios. You have free reign over whether you book Bret in WWF, WCW, or ECW and who you book him against. Please note that you may only book Bret in one of the three companies; you can't book Bret to appear in more than one company during the time period you've been asked to write.

    THE WWF BRET SCENARIO Autumn, 1997. Bret spurns WCW's advances once again, agreeing terms with Vince and the WWF to sign a new contract. As a result, there's no Montreal Screwjob and no massive fall-out. The result of the title match that night at Survivor Series is irrelevant in this task where you will be asked to book Bret Hart's WrestleMania 14 program. From January to the night of 'Mania XIV, book a three month angle that centres around "The Hitman". It's entirely your choice whether Bret has the title or not - it's not an important factor here.

    THE WCW BRET SCENARIO Summer, 1996. Bret shocks the wrestling world by deciding not to renew his WWF contract. The NWO is born and in this parallel universe it is "The Hitman", not "The Hulkster", who is the third man. Hart, Hall, Nash lead a "new world order, brother". From Bash at the Beach '96 to Halloween Havoc that same year, book a three month angle that centres around "The Excellence of Execution" leading wrestling's hottest new stable.

    THE ECW BRET SCENARIO Winter, 1997. The screw-job takes place, but Bret is forced to take a brief detour to Extreme Championship Wrestling before he can step in a WCW ring. What lies in wait for a man who was once Vince McMahon's golden boy? How will the likes of Taz, Raven, Rob Van Dam and even Paul Heyman take to the arrival of "The best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be?". From the night of his ECW debut, book a three month angle that centres around Bret and his first meaningful program in wrestling's edgy, alternative promotion.

    ADDENDUM ~ Send your storyline to WMS via PM. You have two weeks. The deadline is the midnight of Monday October 12 - GMT time. No entries sent after this time will be accepted. In the time leading to your deadline, your respective mentor will post/PM advice on what to and not to do to help you with this task.
    Sit down. Be humble.

    THE FINALE ~ A LITTLE FIC OF EVERYTHING

    STEP ONE: THE DRAFT
    STEP TWO: THE MATCH BOOKING
    STEP THREE: THE STORYLINE
    STEP FOUR: THE PRE-MATCH PROMO
    FINAL STEP: THE MATCH


    YOUR OBJECTIVE ~ AM and Fallen, congratulations on making it all the way to the final. Here, you will be tested with a number of challenges that will force you to use all of your talents as a writer of wrestling Fan Fic. You'll be asked to; draft up a fantasy roster, book a seven-match supercard with your new roster, envision one storyline that will compromise one of your seven matches, use said storyline to write up a promo that would serve as a go-home to your big show, and finally write a match in full focusing on the wrestlers you've chosen to be the main attention of your specific storyline. A mammoth task which will help myself and the rest of the forum decide who truly has the X-Fictor.

    THE DRAFT You will take it in turns to draft any wrestlers you wish to make a roster of 16. Drafting two wrestlers at a time, this will take place in the General Discussion thread. AM will go first given that he had what I felt was the strongest (only just) entry last time round. You will continue to take turns drafting until you finally have 16 wrestlers each. Please remember that once a wrestler is drafted, the other competitor can't draft that wrestler.

    THE MATCH BOOKING You've got your team of 16. Now, it's your job to book your fictional company's own spin on WrestleMania. Use your booking nous to whip up a seven-match supercard that will sweep us off our fictional feet!

    THE STORYLINE OK, pay attention. I now want you to concentrate on one match on your card. It could be the main event title match or it could be the opening tag match, it's not important. What is important is that you pick out one match you feel confident with as this is now the focus for you to write-up a storyline, promo and match. Similar to the Bret Hart task you've just conquered, write us a three-month summarised storyline that takes us from A, the meeting between the involved competitors, to B, the go-home promo you're about to write...

    THE PRE-MATCH PROMO Your three-month storyline will conclude with a go-home promo delivered by your choice of the competitors in your selected match. Heel or babyface, it's irrelevant. I just want to see a promo that really fires us up and convinces us that the pay-per-view, and ensuing match, are worth watching (reading).

    THE MATCH We conclude with a match written in full. Remember that it must be the match that you've based your storyline and promo on - this is imperative. I advise you knuckle down and watch some matches on YouTube or the Network - take notice of the layout of the matches and why things are done at certain times and for what reason. Also, swot up on moves and sequences that your competitors use as realism is always nice. I'd hate to see Kane busting out a Moonsault. That might give me sour grapes!

    So, there you have it. A little fic of everything...

    ADDENDUM ~ Send your entries to WMS via PM by the 23/11/2015. You have over one month to deliver this to me - use your time wisely. If you wish to discuss deadlines, approach me with plenty of time. My aim is for you guys to hand this in by the 23rd, I'll write-up my reviews by the last day of November, and then on the first day of December, I will whip up a thread where the Fan Fic community votes for their winner. You can ask for advice from both mentors, PB and RT, for this round. I look forward to seeing who comes out on top - good luck!
