Shoot this guy in the face.



Fallen Rib

#5 Hans Nitschke (11-5, OVR 447) vs. #4 Jack Braddock (10-6, OVR 485)
WRESTLEHUT CONFERENCE—OPENING ROUND


Tess Bradenbury: Hello, everyone, and welcome to the Season Two Playoffs! Eleven matches on the card, headlined by an Iron Person match to crown the RRW Champion! I’m Tess Bradenbury, sitting here at ringside as always with Johnny Tyler. Johnny, we’ve got a incredibly tough field of twelve looking to become RRW Champion. Who walks away with the belt tonight?

Johnny Tyler: I’m going to reference an old sports line here, Tess. “To be the man, you have to beat the man!” Lance Heartilly is the reigning champ, and half of the reigning tag champs. Picking against him is a fool’s errand!

Tess Bradenbury: A lot of the pundits are agreeing with you, Johnny. For me, I’ve got it as a toss-up between Reverend Johnny Gross and Brian Blackfield; I have them in my final round but I can’t decide on a winner. But we’ll find out in just a few hours’ time, as we’re about to get started with our first match of the evening.

Johnny Tyler: This seems a bit of a mismatch, doesn’t it?

Tess Bradenbury: I don’t think so, Johnny. Hans Nitschke could have won a lot of other divisions if he was in them, instead of being in the same division as Gross, and this bout against Jack Braddock should be rather interesting.

Johnny Tyler: I think Braddock takes it here. The first of many pummelings to be dealt tonight!

Tess Bradenbury: Regardless, all of the principals seem ready…there’s the bell, and the season two playoffs are officially underway!

#5 Hailey Carmichael (12-4, OVR 488) vs. #4 Mel O’Hallister (11-5, OVR 448)
RINGSPORTS CONFERENCE—OPENING ROUND


Tess Bradenbury: Let’s move to the other side of the brackets now, where the other half of the former tag champs, Hailey Carmichael, is set to face the newcomer Mel O’Hallister.

Johnny Tyler: Yeah, everything we just saw with Braddock? More of the same here. O’Hallister kind of got lucky slipping his scrawny self into the big man’s division title, but this is where his miracle run ends!

Tess Bradenbury: O’Hallister came in, told the competition commitee that he wanted in the Red Division where he was outweighed by his own weight in most cases, and proceeded to dominate the division. Carmichael was in contention for the Blue Division title right until the final week, when a loss to Lance Heartilly sealed her fate as the number-five seed. This should be an interesting bout!

Johnny Tyler: Until Hailey chokes Mel out with his own arms! Hailey rolls here, calling it!

Tess Bradenbury: We’ll see soon enough, as the ref calls for the bell and our second opening-round match is underway!

Tess Bradenbury: O’Hallister’s trying to wiggle free, rocking back and forth to try to weaken the grip Hailey has…and with a violent jerk he breaks free! O’Hallister escapes the #NoFilter, but how much damage did it do?

Johnny Tyler: Enough, that’s how much. Finish this, Hailey!

(27:18) Hailey used a Face Rub Taunt
(27:38) Hailey Carmichael reaching for the arms, looks like...it is! It's selfie time with Mel O'Hallister, #NoFilter!

Tess Bradenbury: And this time she has it locked on tight!

Johnny Tyler: That’s it, it’s over! No one gets out of this hold twice!

Tess Bradenbury: O’Hallister’s trying the same trick that worked last time, but Hailey shifts her weight with him this time, and is not giving Mel a chance of finding a weakpoint! It can’t be too much…yes, there it is! O’Hallister gives it up, and Hailey Carmichael takes down the Red Division Champion in one heck of an opening round match!

Johnny Tyler: That was closer than I’d have liked. Who does she have next?

Tess Bradenbury: We’ll find out later, Johnny. But for now, Carmichael has a chance to try to recover a little as she moves on to the second round!

Hailey Carmichael def. Mel O'Hallister, Two Falls to None, in 27:49. Rating: ****
Fall 1: Carmichael, submission via #NoFilter, 22:19

#6 Pulsar (9-7, OVR 492) vs. #3 Daniel Simmons (11-5, OVR 496)
WRESTLEHUT CONFERENCE—OPENING ROUND


Tess Bradenbury: Back to the Wrestlehut side of the bracket we go, as the Green Division champion Daniel Simmons faces the veteran luchador, Pulsar.

Johnny Tyler: I might not like Simmons much as a person—he’s too honest for my liking—but I don’t see Pulsar winning two falls here. That Zodiac Implosion is too much of a liability.

Tess Bradenbury: I’m inclined to agree. Simmons has his Blue Collar Driver, and his Quitting Time submission. Either one alone would be a safer bet to finish a match; with both in the arsenal I don’t see Simmons dropping this one. But we’ve been wrong before; that’s why they wrestle the matches in the ring, folks!

Johnny Tyler: Except we won’t be wrong here. I’m 2-for-2 so far, no need to ruin perfection!

Tess Bradenbury: Regardless, there’s the bell, and match number three on the night is officially underway!

Tess Bradenbury: If Pulsar is going to pull out the win here, he’s going to need to stick to that mentality. He needs to be faster than Simmons, and keep the tempo fast. If he can mentally unbalance Simmons with his speed, that may be his biggest advantage.

Johnny Tyler: Counterpoint, Tess. Being quick is well and good, but everyone is the same speed when they’re staring up at the lights. All Simmons needs is one good shot to ruin those plans!

Tess Bradenbury: Valuable time to recover here for Simmons, and we have to call attention to the laceration on his forehead, Johnny.

Johnny Tyler: Indeed. It doesn’t matter if you’ve won a fall earlier; if the ref says it’s too dangerous to continue, that’s the end of it right then and there. We had a European Rules match end via blood stoppage; the officials will not hesitate to do it in the playoffs if it comes down to it!

Tess Bradenbury: Meanwhile outside the ring, Pulsar seems to have gathered his wits about him, and here he comes back into the squared circle. Can Simmons press this newfound advantage?

Tess Bradenbury: Pulsar looking for an early advantage here, he wants that Zodiac Implosion. And Simmons is right in the drop zone!

Johnny Tyler: If Pulsar hits this, it could be huge!

Tess Bradenbury: He looks ready, there’s the jump…and Simmons rolls out of the way! Pulsar crashes hard into the mat, and Simmons quickly goes into the cover! One…two…three! Pulsar takes a huge risk, and it does not pay off as Daniel Simmons takes the first fall!

Johnny Tyler: Simmons’ job just got easier! Put him away!

RINGSPORTS CONFERENCE—OPENING ROUND


Tess Bradenbury: Time now for our final match of the opening round, and this one promises to be a heavy-hitting affair!

Johnny Tyler: There’s no way Nagata wins this, Tess. Can you recall the last time he even attempted a finisher?

Tess Bradenbury: He hasn’t needed to, Johnny. That Nagata Special of his has been doing an admirable job of finishing the matches for him!

Johnny Tyler: Maybe, but these are the playoffs. He needs to step up his game or he’s going to be bounced out in short order!

Tess Bradenbury: We’ll see soon enough, as the bell sounds!

Tess Bradenbury: Nagata trying to wear down Nakamatsu early; is this a strategy you agree with?

Johnny Tyler: Not really. Yoshii’s more geared for a wear-down style of offense. Nagata likes to strike, those short hooks are his favorite weapon of choice. If he’s going to stick to this hare-brained idea of finishing with that damnable suplex of his, he needs to take a page from Braddock and Glenn Knight’s book, and just lay into Nakamatsu here!

Johnny Tyler: Still a stupid plan when you can just knock the man out with your knees.

Tess Bradenbury: Was that desperation on the part of Nagata?

Johnny Tyler: He’s not saying, except for glaring at the official and pointing to the mat, Tess! Looks like he’s going to score a fall right here!

Tess Bradenbury: The ref grudgingly obliges…one…two…three! First fall to Nagata in rather dubious fashion!

Johnny Tyler: I doubt he can get away with that a second time, Tess. Now, let’s see if he actually adjusts his strategy here. I wouldn’t bet on it, honestly.

Johnny Tyler: He did what?!

Tess Bradenbury: Nagata finally caught all of the Nagata Special, and just as I mentioned earlier, Johnny, he wore down Nakamatsu enough that eventually Yoshii wouldn’t be able to kick out. Nagata moves on to face Brian Blackfield, and a Blue Division rematch is in the books as the advancing Hailey Carmichael sets her sights on the reigning RRW Champion, Lance Heartilly!

Johnny Tyler: Oh, drat it all, I was hoping for those two to meet in the conference championship!

#2 Billy Norris (11-5, OVR 492) vs. #4 Jack Braddock (11-6, OVR 485)
WRESTLEHUT CONFERENCE—SECOND ROUND


Tess Bradenbury: It only gets tougher from here, as we enter the second round of the playoffs! We start with Jack Braddock, who dispatched Hans Nitschke in short order, facing a rested Billy Norris.

Johnny Tyler: You mean “pummeling Billy Norris!” Norris is going to show off one time too many, miss his disaster kick, and Braddock will be there to pounce on the opportunity!

Tess Bradenbury: That very well may be, but we’ll know for sure by the end of the match, Johnny. Both men have checked over by the official, and there’s the bell to open the second round of the playoffs!

Johnny Tyler: That, and Norris having gotten to rest the entire first round. If Jack’s going to make a comeback, there’s no better time to start than right now!

#2 Brian Blackfield (12-4, OVR 507) vs. #3 Eugene Nagata (12-4, OVR 468)
RINGSPORTS CONFERENCE—SECOND ROUND


Tess Bradenbury: Switching gears now, we move to the Ringsports Conference. Eugene Nagata has his works cut out for him, as he looks to eliminate the entirety of the Yellow Division presence in these playoffs. He got through Yoshii Nakamatsu earlier; now he faces a much tougher task in the Yellow Division champion, Brian Blackfield.

Johnny Tyler: And he thinks that suplex is going to be the ticket to winning the match?

Tess Bradenbury: I don’t see why not, Johnny. Blackfield seems to get his adrenaline rushes when someone hits an impact finisher. The Nagata Knockout is an impact finisher. So why not avoid it altogether?

Johnny Tyler: I’ll believe that works when I see it.

Tess Bradenbury: Blackfield holds on for the cover…one…two…three! Blackfield goes up a fall, Johnny, and Nagata is—

Johnny Tyler: Don’t sugarcoat it, Tess. Nagata is screwed. The worst thing he could have had happen was Blackfield to get a fall up on him. Now he needs to go for the Nagata Knockout, and risk triggering Blackfield. This is not going to end well!

Tess Bradenbury: Cover by Blackfield…one…two…three! Blackfield wastes no time here, eliminating Nagata and moving on to the Ringsports Conference championship bout!

Johnny Tyler: The thing is, Tess, whomever faces him there may have an advantage. Blackfield doesn’t go postal off submission holds, and both Heartilly and Hailey specialize in them! Blackfield may have a tough fight ahead of him!

#1 Lance Heartilly (12-4, OVR 496) vs. #5 Hailey Carmichael (13-4, OVR 488)
RINGSPORTS CONFERENCE—SECOND ROUND


Tess Bradenbury: We now come to the “Johnny Tyler’s Existential Crisis” match. He picked Heartilly to win it all, but on the opposite side of the ring is one of his favorites, Hailey Carmichael. Still sticking to Lance here, Johnny?

Johnny Tyler: Given how Lance went throught the playoffs in Season One, and then in Tag Team Turmoil this season, the only people with a shot of slowing him down are Jack Braddock and Hailey Carmichael, the Season One Tag Team Turmoil champions. With Braddock eliminated, I think Hailey is the field’s last hope. If she can’t derail Lance here, he’s going on to win it all.

Tess Bradenbury: I notice how you haven’t answered my question, Johnny.

Johnny Tyler: And you’ll be happy to keep noticing that!

Tess Bradenbury: With that said, both combatants are in the ring, and there’s the bell! This rematch from the Blue Division is underway!

Johnny Tyler: She’s got to realize that her best chance is just to concede the fall, and storm back!

Tess Bradenbury: I think she heard you, Johnny, as there’s the tap! Heartilly takes the first fall, and could be on the verge of reaching the conference finals yet again!

Johnny Tyler: Oh, hell. Fight it, Hailey!

Tess Bradenbury: She’s certainly trying, attempting to leverage both of them over…she’s almost got them over, but Heartilly shifts his weight the other way and back to the regular position they go! Carmichael can’t take too much more of this…and indeed, there’s the tap! Nothing to fault Hailey for in that match, but Lance has had her number since RRW started. That holds true here, as Hailey fails to get her first victory against Heartilly tonight.

Johnny Tyler: I can see her putting time this season in working on countering that move; there’s no way Lance sweeps her next season as well!

Tess Bradenbury: So our first conference championship match is now set—Brian Blackfield steps up to attempt to knock the reigning RRW Champion from his perch. That should be a hell of a bout!

#1 Reverend Johnny Gross (12-4, OVR 495) vs. #6 Pulsar (10-7, OVR 492)
WRESTLEHUT CONFERENCE—SECOND ROUND


Tess Bradenbury: Back to the Wrestlehut Conference now, and time to determine who faces Billy Norris in just a little while. Pulsar, who came off a hard-fought victory over Daniel Simmons, has a monumental task ahead of him as the top seed in the conference, the always-dangerous Reverend Johnny Gross, awaits him.

Johnny Tyler: Honestly, I’m shocked Pulsar won last round. No chance he does it again. None.

Tess Bradenbury: How certain are you on this?

Johnny Tyler: I’d put money on it if I was able to.

Tess Bradenbury: We’ll see if you’re right, Johnny. Both men are in the ring, Pulsar appears to be moving a little gingerly which isn’t surprising given that first round match. The official calls for the bell, and our final match of the second round has begun!

Tess Bradenbury: That’s not going to do Pulsar’s back any favors!

Johnny Tyler: And this is why Gross moves on, Tess. Pulsar’s too stubborn to change his offense to account for injuries. Gross has no qualms about taking that advantage for all he can.

Tess Bradenbury: If Gross does just that, Johnny, this one could indeed be over quickly.

Johnny Tyler: No, this is news to me!

Billy Norris: See, I want my shot at you right now. None o’ this waiting malarkey. I want to kick your face so hard you’ll kiss the drat moon, and I don’t want to wait to do it!

Reverend Gross, having heard about as much of this as he cares to, just waves off Norris and drops to the mat, rolling out of the ring in front of the commentary table. Norris slides in the ring behind him, microphone still in hand.

Billy Norris: What’s wrong, God-boy? Afraid your so-called almighty isn’t going to let you do something out of order? Or are you that afraid of a little fire bath, eh?

One can almost see the moment that Norris’ barbs managed to anger the preacher. No one, and by the Lord he meant NO ONE, was going to preach to him about hellfire. Turning towards the ring, Gross stares down Norris, and the Australian’s face seems to lose a little bit of color as Gross slides inside. The ref comes over to try to talk some sense, but Gross bellows, in his pulpit voice, to ring the bell. The official, after pausing a moment, lets out a sigh and calls for the bell, signaling the first of two Conference Championship matches had just begun….

Tess Bradenbury: I might not like the plan laid out by Norris there, but you have to admit it’s worked so far. Weather the early emotional storm, find the opening to counter, and go right to the head of the opponent.

Johnny Tyler: Given who’s in this match, on most nights I’d give the advantage to Reverend Gross. Norris may have taken that away, and Gross could pay for his hubris! I have to agree, Tess, this was a well-laid plan so far by Billy Norris!

Tess Bradenbury: It remains to be seen whether he keeps this advantage, however, as he looks to maintain control over Gross here!

Tess Bradenbury: Norris seems to be zeroing in with every miss of the Down Under Disaster, Johnny.

Johnny Tyler: He just needs to watch how he lands. A wrong stumble and Gross is going to roll him up to take advantage!

Tess Bradenbury: Wouldn’t be the first time, after all. But Gross needs to find an offensive counter to that move, and find it fast!

Johnny Tyler: That would certainly count as a counter to the Disaster!

Tess Bradenbury: Gross is determined to not let go, as he fights against Norris’ attempts to squirm to the ropes. That right arm is clamped tight around the neck of Norris, and there’s the tap! Reverend Gross is a fall away from punching a ticket into the RRW Championship match!

Johnny Tyler: And right about now, you have to wonder if Norris is regretting his decision to provoke Gross before their scheduled time!

Johnny Tyler: Oh, drat, and he dropped into the body scissors too! Norris has nowhere to go!

Tess Bradenbury: Norris still trying to fight out of it, find an escape path, but he’s starting to sag, Johnny. I’m not sure how much longer the ref is going to let this go on!

Johnny Tyler: Looks like he heard you, Tess. He’s calling for the bell, and this one is over!

Tess Bradenbury: But Gross isn’t letting go of the hold! Come on, Johnny, you’ve won the match, that’s enough!

Johnny Tyler: And…finally, after about another eight or nine seconds, Gross drops the dragon sleeper, and Norris is passed the hell out, Tess! Reverend Gross wanted to send a statement, and he certainly did there!

Tess Bradenbury: With that emphatic win, Gross will be competing for the RRW Championship tomorrow night, against an opponent to be determined next!

RINGSPORTS CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP


Tess Bradenbury: Well, now that we’ve had a chance to calm down a little, it’s time to determine who Reverend Gross will be facing for the RRW Championship in the Iron Person match!

Johnny Tyler: First off, there’s only men left. Why not call it an Iron Man match?

Tess Bradenbury: because we’re trying to be progressive, Johnny.

Johnny Tyler: …good point. But second, I’m sticking with my original pick. Heartilly is moving on to defend his title!

Tess Bradenbury: Both men have only gone through one match earlier—a benefit of earning a bye during the season—and now they stand here ready to go to war for a shot at gold. The official calls for the bell, and here we go!

Tess Bradenbury: Blackfield’s looking like he’s trying to psyche himself up, to block out the pain, but Heartilly is punching the knee of Blackfield while in that hold!

Johnny Tyler: He wants to make sure he ends this here!

Tess Bradenbury: Blackfield’s trying to maneuver both of them towards the ropes, but…what is Heartilly doing now? Is he…

Johnny Tyler: He’s digging his fingers into the back of Blackfield’s knee! Trying to press on the tendon there, I think…wait, Blackfield’s tapping!

Tess Bradenbury: That has to be one of the most unique tweaks to the figure four I’ve ever seen, Johnny. I’m still not sold on how effective it actually was, but Heartilly has done the near improbable and reached the Finals for two straight seasons!

In the ring, as Blackfield rolls out to drop on the ringside mats, Heartilly gestures for, and eventually gets, a microphone.

Lance Heartilly: No, no, no. We’re not waiting for tomorrow night! I don’t need the rest, and Reverend Gross got a chance to rest for the last half hour. Come on out here, Johnny, and let’s do this here and now!

Tess Bradenbury: Is Lance out of his mind? Surely he doesn’t intend to wrestle for another hour after two matches tonight!

Johnny Tyler: Tess, he is THE pinnacle of RRW right now. If he says he can go, he can probably do it and not think twice!

Lance Heartilly: Come on, Johnny! As the reigning RRW Champion for one more match, I’m exercising my prerogative to start this bout early! Come on out here, so I can beat you like I did Glenn Knight last season and get back to Calgary, where this belt belongs!

Tess Bradenbury: Did he really just insinuate that he’s going to pull a 17-0 victory for the second year running?

Johnny Tyler: And who are you to doubt Lance Heartilly?!

There is a brief silence, and Lance is about to speak again when Reverend Johnny Gross emerges from backstage. Officials are seen asking him to turn around, to save the match for tomorrow when both men are rested, but Gross is having none of it. Gross slides into the ring, a thin smile crossing his face as he nods at Heartilly. The cameras are able to pick up Gross’s words.

Reverend Gross: You heard the man. Ring the bell, and let’s settle this!

Johnny Tyler: I’m not going to ask a man of God why he does what he does. Maybe God told him that this was the time for him to fight. Maybe he wants to get this done so he’s ready for his sermon tomorrow. I don’t honestly know.

Tess Bradenbury: Wait, he still preaches on Sundays?

Johnny Tyler: Well, yeah. Virtual services are a thing, you know!

Tess Bradenbury: Huh. I’ll be damned.

Johnny Tyler: You certainly will be with that attitude!

Tess Bradenbury: …I walked into that one.

Tess Bradenbury: We’re not even ten minutes into this sixty-minute match and the referee is already warning both men to watch the illegal tactics.

Johnny Tyler: I think we’ve seen all of the low blows that’ll cause falls for the nigh, Tess. This is going to be a submission war, plain and simple!

Tess Bradenbury: You still going with Heartilly?

Johnny Tyler: Until someone proves to me otherwise, he’s the one to beat! What say you?

Tess Bradenbury: While I’m inclined to agree on principle, I think Gross has the advantage with his dragon sleeper. Regardless, this isn’t going to be some 17-0 sleeper of a match!

Johnny Tyler: And so, the plan comes together.

Tess Bradenbury: You seriously think he reversed the whip right into the ref on purpose?

Johnny Tyler: Tie game, coming up!

Tess Bradenbury: Afraid not, Johnny. Gross rolled to the side to stack up Heartilly, and force the break lest Lance be pinned. But more concerning to him here, is that laceration on the forehead. There’s still twenty minutes of the match to go, and that cut is only going to get worse as time goes on. Heartilly may have given himself a subtle, but definite, advantage in this championship match!

Johnny Tyler: Surely the ref isn’t going to call off the freaking RRW Championship match due to blood loss?

Tess Bradenbury: I think he totally would, Johnny. Especially with the pandemic still running rampant out there.

He’s just a few inches from the ropes…but Heartilly cranks on the ankle, and that tweaks the knee enough that Gross taps! Despite being behind most of the match, Heartilly now leads five falls to four with less than five minutes remaining!

Johnny Tyler: I think that’ll do it, Tess. Gross’ legs can’t take another one of those!

Tess Bradenbury: If this happened just a little later, Lance could try to stretch the time out, but there’s still too much time left…and indeed, there’s the tap! Gross has tied this up at five falls apiece with three and a half minutes to go!

As Gross releases Come to Jesus, Heartilly brings the point of his elbow down into the side of Gross’s left knee while seemingly trying to get to his feet. Gross staggers back into a neutral corner, basically resting all of his weight on the right leg as the ref threatens to DQ Heartilly and award Gross a fall. Instead, there’s a good thirty second tirade that Gross uses to try to recover before the ref signals for the match to resume.

Tess Bradenbury: What in the hell was that?

Johnny Tyler: He was trying to get up, Tess. I don’t know why the ref is giving Heartilly such a—

Tess Bradenbury: Oh, can it, Johnny! You and I both know that was a cheap shot! If Heartilly can’t win this in regulation, he’s looking for any advantage he can if this goes to extra time!

Johnny Tyler: He’s fighting towards the ropes, but Heartilly is blocking the attempt—wait, now he’s trying to flip them over! He knows that if he can just hold on, he has a chance!

Tess Bradenbury: Looks like…yes, Gross gets them rolled over, but Heartilly just rolls with the momentum and they’re right back where they started, but now in the center of the ring…wait! Heartilly just drove his elbow straight into the left kneecap of Gross!

Johnny Tyler: Twelve seconds! Eleven…ten…nine—

Tess Bradenbury: Gross taps! Four successive elbow shots to the knee were too much! With just nine seconds remaining, Lance Heartilly takes a six falls to five lead!

Johnny Tyler: This is basically over, Tess! Unless Gross gets a miracle pin right from the restart, Lance Heartilly has retained!

Tess Bradenbury: And there’s the bell! In an absolute war, Lance Heartilly has emerged bloodied, bruised, and torn, but yet victorious! This is as far from last season’s finals as you can get, and he certainly earned the right to carry the RRW Championship for another season!

Johnny Tyler: I told you that he had to prove he could be beaten, and Gross came the closest I’ve seen anyone really manage in such a grueling war! Lotta respect for both men, Tess, and I think we can safely call this an instant classic!

Tess Bradenbury: Without a doubt! Folks, that’ll do it for us this season. For Johnny Tyler and everyone else at Rowdy Ringsports Wrestling, I’m Tess Brandenbury. Stay safe, and we’ll see you for season three, as Lance Heartilly remains your RRW Champion!!

Lance Heartilly def. Reverend Johnny Gross. Six Falls to Five, in 60:00 to retain the RRW Championship. Rating: *****, MOTY Contender (equivalent of ******)

Senerio, you have once again won the prediction contest for RRW, this time by a narrower margin than in season one. You have one boon available to change the game world in some minor way as you deem fit.


MATCH OF THE SEASON AWARD: SEASON TWO

The only four-star rated match in the regular season claims this award, even though we all know it’s really the RRW Championship match that should count. Sadly, only regular-season matches are eligible, and that’s why the Match of the Season goes to Jun Onoo’s win over Otto von Schwarz in Week 12.

UPDATED RRW RECORDS AND SUPERLATIVES

With 24 regular season wins, Reverend Johnny Gross holds the mark for most wins in RRW. He also has the best winning percentage, at 75%.

Season Two’s Most Entertaining Wrestler is Elyssa Anderson, who posted an Average Match Rating of 2.375 over the regular season. The single-season high mark is still held jointly by Daniel Simmons and The Siberian Nightmare, who each posted a 2.563 back in season one. The highest average for someone who’s competed in both seasons is Otto von Schwarz, with an Average Match Rating of 2.344 over 32 matches.

Otto von Schwarz, despite being a giant and thus not normally someone who would be considered a good performer, holds an RRW-leading 8 Matches of the Night to his name. The next closest is El Tornado with 5.

Wins have come at a premium for Jimmy Anarchy (he only has 6 over two seasons), so to think that he would have the fastest Average Time of Victory is intriguing. His mark of 12:03 is just seven seconds ahead of the next-fastest. The single-season marks are Glenn Knight’s 11:28 from Season 1 (11 wins), and Billy Norris’s 11:44 this season (also 11 wins).

In terms of a wrestler’s Overall rating, there’s only one character who has passed the 500 mark, and that’s Brian Blackfield. His 507 OVR is 11 points up on Yoshii Nakamatsu and two-time RRW Champion Lance Heartilly.

Speaking of Lance Heartilly, he has far and way the highest Wrestling Spirit rating of anyone on the roster. Winning two RRW Titles and a Tag Team Turmoil event will certainly help as that’s 125 bonus point right there. His rating of 553 exceeds second place—Jack Braddock—by 142 points. Hailey Carmichael is the only other member of the roster to even meet the 400 threshold, albeit by rounding (the actual stat is 399.94).

The individual high marks for the other stats are as follows:

Strength: 679 (Sven Ulafsson)
Striking: 540 (Vladimir Chavinski)
Grappling: 665 (Lance Heartilly)
Ground: 378 (Indigo Rose)
Speed: 525 (Pulsar)
Stamina: 400 (Hailey Carmichael)
Athleticism: 512 (El Tornado)
Manager OVR: 400 (Devil’s Delight)

Regular Season Decision Types
Pinfall Victories: Brandy McDonald (21)
Pinfall Losses: Jimmy Anarchy (18)
Submission Victories: Lance Heartilly (20)
Submission Losses: Indigo Rose (11)
Countout Victories: Otto von Schwarz (1)
Countout Losses: Pulsar (1)
Blood Stoppage Victories: Brian Blackfield (4)
Blood Stoppage Losses: Diego Rodriguez (3)

RRW MATCH RECORDS

A few marks were added to the top five tables for matches in Season Two. The most notable are as follows:

Standard Match—Shortest
Mel O’Hallister week four victory over Indigo Rose, clocking in at just 7:15, slots into second place on the fastest times table.
Billy Norris’ win over Pulsar in week twelve, at 7:32, is the third-fastest regular match in RRW history.
Markus Clay over Terrance Stevens in 7:51 during week two falls into fifth.

Standard Matches—Longest
The top five remain unchanged from season one. Sixth through tenth, though, are all season two bouts, headlined by Otto von Schwarz over Sven Ulafsson in 30:23—just 13 seconds away from overtaking fifth.

Gimmick Matches—Shortest
Pulsar’s Table Match win over Sterling Silver in week 12, timed at 6:36, is the new mark to beat for gimmick matches.
The new runner-up is Norris’ victory over El Tornado under Last One Standing rules, at 7:47—a full minute and change behind Pulsar’s victory.

Gimmick (non-European) Matches—Longest
The only change to the top five came in week six, When Terrance Stevens took 11:25 to put away Devil’s Delight in a Hardcore match.
That exact time was matched six week later, when Brian Blackfield beat George Mastachas in a Cage match in 22:25.

European Rules Matches
Two of the three held this season ended up being the second and third-longest bouts of this type in RRW history. The third would be the shortest one held in RRW.
Lord Robert Abernathy’s victory over Vladimir Chavinski in week two, clocking in at 48:24, currently sits in second place on the table.
The week eleven clash, in which Faarooq Mahal Jr. beat Otto von Schwarz in 44:15, sits in third.

Best Rated Regular Season Matches
After the Season Two finals, we all know that that match is going to be the pinnacle of RRW matches for a very, very long time. So sticking to the regular season… RRW's fifth-ever ****-rated regular season match slots into second place from this season, held in week 12 when Jun Onoo bested Otto von Schwarz. (This is also the 8th-longest standard match in RRW history).

The top match continues to be the European Rules bout from season one, week four, in which Daniel Simmons bested Jun Onoo in a time of 32:48, also earning a **** rating.


PROPOSED CHANGES FOR SEASON THREE

The biggest change I’m aiming for in season three once more revolves around managers. Despite opening up every avenue of manager interference available, there’s still a decided lack of actual interference. Consequentially, those people with managers (Hailey, Nagata, Nitschke, Delight, von Schwarz, River) are being penalized for their manager’s laziness or plain inability to run interference. Thus, in season three, wrestlers only get a reduction to their earned XP if a manager actually manages to successfully interfere in a bout. If a manager does not try, or does not successfully interfere, the wrestler will be given full XP for the match.

I’m also toying with the idea of adding random events between shows. Something akin to a 0.5 to 1% chance per week of something happening to a character. Things along the line of:
“Your therapy after the match helped you recover a little more than usual. Negate one level of damage to one body part from the previous week.”
“You crushed your workout this week! Gain five free Stat Points that must be used this week or they will be lost.”
“A lack of sleep disrupted your preparation. Training PMs for this week will not be taken into effect for your next match (they will be applied afterwards, does not apply to signature/finisher purchases).”
And so forth.

Only one goon finished under .500 for the season. However, he has not been in contact for any training/updates since the early part of Season One. So if the deadline for Season Three applications passes and Glenn Knight’s handler hasn’t been in touch in some way or another to state whether he wants back in for Season Three, Knight will be moved out of active competition, and his fifteen free stat points and extra TP forfeited.

For all other current goon characters: You have one (1) TP that you may use or bank to build up for future purchases. If you have negative traits that can be worsened to give you more TP, you may increase those levels by one to give you the additional TP.

There is no rush to send these changes in; I will be taking a two-week sabbatical from RRW related things to recharge mentally. The tentative plan is to “reopen” on March 15, allow two weeks for new sign ups and updating current/returning wrestlers, with a deadline of March 29 for applications and Season Three, Week One being posted on April 4. This puts Tag Team Turmoil around Memorial Day in the US, and the season ending around the beginning of August barring any scheduling changes.

So if anyone reading along is interested in joining for season three, you have a couple of weeks to get your ideas solidified and ready to go!

A brief update:

The planned schedule I laid out above will be pushed back a week in all regards.

The reason is that my roommate’s PC, which I ran RRW on for all of Season Two, decided to randomly have the USB Microphone not work and constantly lock up the system. In doing tech support for said computer, my dumb rear end forgot to save the updated WS3 game database before the system was wiped. So while I have the Excel sheet with all of the stats updated, my actual game database backup is from midway through season one.

So the extra week will be to ensure that everything gets reentered into the system properly, all pictures and such work as expected, and for me to redo the updates I had already begun for season three movesets and such.

ShadowedFlames

Fallen Rib

I spent the majority of Friday afternoon going back into the older database and updating stats/movesets.

Still to do moveset-wise are all goon characters save Hailey Carmichael, as all other goons currently have XP outstanding and even those few points may add a move or two to the list depending on where they go. But with just a handful out of the 32-plus characters I have in the database, it's more manageable.

I still have traits to do for everyone except Hailey, whose Season 3 traits I've already received, but I can do those during any down time from work at the beginning of this week as those at least aren't as time-consuming. So no big deal there.

With the two major headaches of restoration mostly dealt with, let's go ahead and do something I meant to do last week, shall we?

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR SEASON THREE OF ROWDY RINGSPORTS WRESTLING!

Existing Characters/Players: Since I've heard from all goons except the handler of Glenn Knight during season two, you're automatically in for season three. If you'd rather sit out, let me know and I'll find an alternate from my backup characters list to take that spot. If I do not hear from The Bee by the time signups are closed on April 5, Knight will be removed from the roster.

New Characters/Players: Are welcome to join! Just fill out the application near the beginning of this thread (should be the sixth post or thereabouts), and either PM it to me or email to WreSpi3League@gmail.com and I'll get you added, and communicate the character's auto-generated moveset in the same manner (unless you're coming with a moveset already premade, that is).

I have an idea in mind already of which characters are being rotated out from the list I maintain, but that's subject to change depending on if anyone else decides to join us!

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: APRIL 5, 11:59 PM EASTERN US DAYLIGHT TIME

Edited to add: In addition to editing the manager's XP cut rule to reflect the season three changes, I have also added this bit to the rules document:

NOTES ON TRAIT POINTS FOR RETURNING CHARACTERS
Upon entering their second season or beyond, a character may increase the rank of any current negative trait(s) they have by one level (if applicable), and may choose another negative perk to gain at Level 1. If increasing the rank of an existing negative trait, this can be done for each trait every season--there is no "limit one trait to worsen per customer" here.

One week until application deadline, folks.

I’ve already gotten the schedule template worked out for season three, and names/gimmick matches distributed throughout. Took a solid hour to make sure every person got two gimmick bouts exactly...which normally I’m at it for 90+ minutes trying to manipulate things so I’ll take a bit of good fortune for once.

I’ll likely post another installment of the RRW Diaries sometime this week. Anyone have any preferences for who gets showcased?

So real life happened and I didn’t get the RRW Diaries entry written like I wanted. But we’re still going to move on with things regardless of how suddenly packed my free time has become between this, Final Fantasy Randomizer’s spring tournament I’m helping out with, and other assorted projects.

Signups for season three are now closed. We’re down to five goon characters, as Glenn Knight has decided not to renew his contract.

I’ll get a schedule posted within a few hours and updated movesets to those still needing them soon after. I’ll also update the roster list on the first page as soon as I feasibly can because work from home’s still a thing and that’s what I’m doing for the next five hours (break times aside).

EDIT: On break, have a schedule! Also, roster list will be updated a few seconds after I save this post!
