OK, so I have decided to go for:

The Trinity of the New Dawn: My-ron Novaar, Luke Shand, Fireball

The Association of Midnight: David Shand, Mike Rocket, Steve Awesome

The South-West connection: Rob Arnold, Chio Reto

The Cydes: Homer and Reggie Cyde

Britrage: Joxide and Jason Tarsh

Not Nightmare for Arnold/Reto? Or are we rebranding? :p

I'll probably stick more or less the stables I had last year, although I'm sure they'll mix & match throughout Universe:

Trinity of Midnight, updated to form the new respective stables.

DX (Big D & Syxx Pac)

South-West Express (Joxide & Orland Zacconi)

Nightmare (Rob Arnold & Chi Reto)

The Cydes

Joxide Inc. (Rynx & Jeeves)

Mike Rocket & Derek Vicious

J Dub & Special Giznap

BPA (Brummy & Darkside)

Gimmick Guys (Hero & Rapper)

IOX (Keeling, Roller Deuce & Absolute Zero)

Frayed Ends of Sanity (Paul James & Chaos)

I like to make as many stables as possible to invigorate the tag team division. Hopefully it will be easier this year to manage tag teams and not have them break up or form randomly. That pissed me off. And now since we're not stuck with the 2-belt generic entrance it will look better too.

Actually, if you post pics for Orland, I'll put you with him instead. And I'll add Wheato's characters. Not sure about the other older names - need to leave room to bulk out my WCW roster.

I'm gonna create Mike Rocket's new protege in WWE '12 and give him a name out of the call names in the game, and have Rocket be his manager.

And i'm also going to create a ton of new characters, pulled from my own imagination, and come up with some new stories based on this idea, as I go along and see how that all turns out.

That having been said, I will probably download your created wrestlers based on the main guys from each of you (and probably additionally Homer Cyde, because I have a good idea where to place him in this) to serve as a HANDFUL of "veterens", or basically treat the guys like David Shand, Myron Fox, Chio Reto, Steve Awesome, Mike Rocket, Rob Arnold and everyone else, the way that WWE treats their non-current Alumni and Hall Of Famers.

That is my plan. To create a "new generation" and also have everyone from the "previous generation" being looked at as Legends and Alumni the way that the WWE envisions their own (but who can obviously still go in the ring, because THIS is fictional, and I'm not going to depict any of them as being broken down , depressed or old. Because let's be honest, it's realistic, but it's not an aspect to the business that we like or want to see.)

So, classic TXA/CWA guys will be used very sparingly in my universe, or my stories, and if I do use them, it will be a big deal. They will be looked at with appropriate reverence, respect, class, and such, who may make special appearences. I may even put together a little unofficial, outside-of-game Hall of Fame induction to make this distinctive.

Well, in the final roleplay for Myron and my characters, David Shand's son (Luke) walked out on his father and said he wanted nothing to do with him. Novaar had helped Luke access his trust funds, and the boy had discovered the truth of his Father's betrayal of his brother and friend. David was left alone.

I've now taken it a step further and assumed Luke would have asked Novaar and Fireball to train him, and that they have agreed to be his partners and watch his back as he launches his career.

Meanwhile, David is determined to make Novaar pay for stealing his son, and to punish his brother and son for turning against him. He is exercising his wallet and literally aligning himself with the best associates his wealth can buy. He knows both Awesome and Rocket are excellent wrestlers, and he knows both have a certain flexibility in their moral code. Basically, they'll help him for enough money and enough glory. This isn't a team like the Trinity- its a pure business arrangement. He knows they are useful, they know that Shand tends to be able to dictate terms to whatever company he's in and run the place. It's mutually beneficial.

We shall see. I'd be surprised if the story didn't have a few twists and turns left yet.

The Reaper won't go down without a fight, and they don't call him the master manipulator for nothing.

Besides, remember the old saying about apples and trees....

Give me fifty bucks and i'll kick the fish prince in the cod piece.

Well it all ties in quite nicely I think. Awesome and Shand are two very different characters, but there is a mutual respect there coming out of the Trinity of Iron Match, plus Awesome and the Fish Prince have had their problems in the past.

As for Rocket, he's likewise had run-ins with Fox, and wouldn't be adverse to another shot at kicking his ass, plus it wouldn't be the first time that he's been willing to work with Shand to their mutual advantage.

Love the look of these stables.

Did you make Luke Shand on SvR11? Would like to see what he looks like and what his attire is like.

I'm not too bothered about a WCW roster, although I guess it depends how many CAW spaces are available. I'd prefer to have as many of our characters as possible, TXI! & CWA characters too. It will take a while to make, for sure, but I don't mind. I quite like making CAW's.

I did make a Luke Shand on SVR11, yes. Just a prototype to get an idea for the new game. Basically I took a copy of the Reaper CAW, scaled the body down to a 6'5" guy, and dropped the body size down to give him a more streamlined athletic look, rather than David's power based physique. Being young, he's not as muscled, so think somewhere between Novaar and Fireball.

Made him clean-shaven, and just adjusted the facial features to soften them and make it slightly less pronounced. Made the jawline less angular and therefore younger as well. So he looks like David, but softer. Then gave him blonde hair.

I did a couple of attires for him. One was close to David's all in one, another was more akin to Novaar and more like a Robin/Nightwing look.

I'll put all my CAWS up this year, as before.

I liked the Arkham inspired one you mentioned. When I do get the game I think I'm going to go with the Azrael linked one that I mentioned. I think it would a prince who thinks he's a chosen one!

Will all depend on what CAW bits are in the new game or what I decide to knock up on the paint tool.

I also did a darker version of the Reaper. Masked and with all black gear like he's really ready to kill anyone who gets in his way :0)

The really mad thing about all this is that I'm already concocting in my head the promos David, Luke, and Novaar would come out with, and the potential angles that could arise. Alliances, betrayals, reckonings, realisations......

Dave I reckon if they employed you as head writer you could make them a ton of money.

I hope they take out some of the stupid cartoony stuff from CAW mode and replace it with normal stuff.

God I hate to inflate his ego further, but I have to say it...

Gggrrrrrr

They'd need both of us, Myron and me. Our best stuff always comes when we are sparking off each other. We've been mates a long time and know how the other thinks. So a single word or line can be picked up by the other and spark entire angles.

David, here's a question for you. If you were a writer and hirer for a wrestling company and decided you wanted to bring the David Shand/Soul Reaper character to that company, who would you choose to play the character and why? It can be an active wrestler from any company.

Would he be able to do a convincing English accent though?

Sean O'Haire in his prime had the right look, both in terms of build and the facial features I imagined the character to have. An English accent could be trained. I actually got quite a lot of inspiration for the Reaper from a single photograph I took of O'Haire during a WWE show in London. I loved his WWE "I'm not telling you anything you don't already know" character. They so dropped the ball with that.

There are some terrific wrestlers on the UK scene you could do great things with, but none that immediately spring to mind as having the right properties.

Would it be too much to ask of people that they write down the face morphs for their CAW's as they go? I'm going to be playing on the PS3 so I have to create all of your CAW's too. After a little while everyone would end up having the same face... Very Happy

I dare say I could scribble them down. Actually, I'm probably going to want to note down the SVR11 figures anyway, so that - assuming the form is roughly the same- I can carry them over to the new game as closely as possible. Probably just be a few minor tweaks in the face for the new one.

Remember the bad quality videos I recorded of CAW morphs for SvR11? If you're lucky, I may do that again for WWE12 (if I get the game. Don't really play my 360 much anymore).

Hopefully this "pre-emptive strike" will reduce the need for such back breaking (and highly appreciated) effort Razz
