In an alternate reality......
1st January 2017
We open to a press conference setting, and an unknown gentlemen dressed in a suit strolls up to the podium with a small on his face. He acknowledges the dozens of cameras flashing with a small smile and a nod before taking his place behind the sole microphone in the room.
????: Good evening ladies and gentlemen, my name is Joe Mac and I am here to announce what we hope to be one of the most revolutionary developments in professional wrestling history.
The man speaks with a pronounced Irish accent and there is an air of confusion in the room for this relative unknown in the world of professional wrestling. Undeterred, the slim man presses on.
Joe Mac: Tournaments in wrestling have always brought with them a guarantee for excitement, unpredictability and a sense of must see action with every match. We, as fans of the product, look back fondly upon memorable multi man tournaments such as the Cruiserweight Classic of 2016, the King of the deathmatch of 1995 and numerous memorable King of the Rings and many, many more. That is a concept that we at Tournament Championship Wrestling have placed at the core of our product.
Joe pauses, taking a breath as he allows the media to process his information.
Joe Mac: Later in the month, 4 weeks from now to be precise, we will begin a 20 man tournament to crown the inaugural TCW World Heavyweight Champion. The tournament will consist of 4 Preliminary matches occurring on the 29th January, our opening show. The competitors will be announced in due course and today we will be revealing the first of these 20 men to give you all an idea of the caliber of talent we are dealing with. We here at TCW hope that this championship tournament will help kickstart our brand for the years to come. I thank you all very much for your time and please look towards the big screen behind you as we announce our very first competitor in the TCW World Championship Tournament....
Joe Mac walks off to the side of the stage and all attention pans towards the giant screen behind him which flickers to show our mystery first entrant's most memorable accolades.
''12 TIME WORLD CHAMPION''
''ICON OF THE WRESTLING INDUSTRY''
''KING OF THE RING WINNER''
''...OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALLIST''
A massive reaction to this final bolded sentence as it is revealed that KURT ANGLE will be taking part in this memorable 20 man tournament. With that, the stage lights fade away and the hundreds of fans and media members are left with perhaps more questions than they even had coming into this much hyped press conference. One thing is for sure though, there is a huge buzz in the air as TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING is unveiled.
OOC:: As the first sentence states, this is a complete alternate reality based on absolutely no form of realism..these 20 men could be anyone from anywhere in professional wrestling. Over the next couple of weeks, they will be revealed. Enjoy!
This sounds interesting man. Well written opening. I'm a mark for tournaments and I like Kurt Angle so you are already winning with post 1. Let's see what you got!
