The Timeless Child is THE DOCTOR? Oh, for God's sake!


Way back in 2013, goon Little Mac (now Cartridgeblowers) had an idea for a thread: the Monday Night Wars, as written by the folks of this very sub-forum. It was a very fun experience, but it died out after a few years (both in-game and in real life). I’m looking to recapture some of the magic here, with a new LP in which YOU decide the fate of World Wrestling Entertainment at about the same time I got into wrestling, 2004. Way back when, the brand split was an actual thing, with actual General Managers for the respective shows – Paul Heyman for SmackDown!, and Eric Bischoff for Raw.

Cast your mind back to the January of 2004. According to the mod, here are the top storylines:

RAW
Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels
Randy Orton vs. Mick Foley
Ric Flair & Batista vs. the Dudley Boyz
Chris Jericho vs. Christian

SMACKDOWN!
Brock Lesnar vs. Hardcore Holly
Eddie Guerrero vs. Chavo Guerrero, Jr.

INTER-BRAND
Kane vs. the Undertaker

The concept of this thread is simple: pick a side, and try to book the best show you can. There will be competitions to determine match placement at big-4 PPV events and sign new wrestlers, among other opportunities. Both brands will be given a secret document in which to write their stories, but seeing as how it’s all the same company I’m not making a Discord for this (also because I don’t know how). Be creative, and pick a side!

I'm up for it.

There may be time zone issues though, since I live in the Southern Hemisphere.

I'd like Team SmackDown.

I guess I'll join (create?) team Raw. I have this really good idea about how to book HHH and whether he should be put in a prone or vulnerable position.

I guess I'll jump onto Team Raw for balance reasons (as well as being able to book Eric Bischoff reasons)

I've already done so many things to the booking document, including adding a page that is just where I am going to attempt to write my treatise on wrestling booking.

Actual booking for the shows will begin in a few weeks' time so:

1) More people have a chance to sign up
2) Programs can be determined
3) Most importantly...

Who will win the Royal Rumble?

The first major point in our thread is determining a Royal Rumble winner. We know who won the 2004 Royal Rumble in real life, but you can choose anyone you want! With that being said, choose wisely, as WWE rules dictate that the winner can choose EITHER title, and I (being the Vince McMahon role) have final say of inter-brand matters.

Choose you challenger for WrestleMania XX in the Google Sheet provided to your brand, and Godspeed.

i have already made some truly terrible suggestions for our rumble winner that I am sure everyone will be a fan of.

I thought the redtext someone dumped on you was in bad taste and a bit much so here's a corgi instead.

I would like to be on Team Smackdown to ensure Tajiri is pushed with appropriate vigor. Also want to say I have close to no reference point for 2004 WWE, the only 2004 wrestling I've seen is NOAH and ROH so I'm sure this'll really help.

As I don't have PMs you'll want to use my username at gmail.com

A note for the Royal Rumble PPV

Both brands must present 3 non-Rumble matches each for the card, plus one match each for the pre-show.
