What's the story behind WCW Lives? If the real life deal had concluded with Fusient Media, AOL retained minority ownership and I believe they would have still been allowed to use the aforementioned contracted guys. I can fuck with Booker T, DDP, Kanyon, Dustin and O'Haire though.I've been putting in a lot of time on TEW 2016 since coming back to it last year. Currently entrenched in a modified WCW Lives mod set in 2001. It's a ton of fun, really, trying to make due with the guys that lead the Invasion in WWF, since guys like Steiner, nWo, Goldberg, etc. are sitting out their contracts like they did in real life. Just trying to do my best to elevate enough guys to fill that void a little.
My biggest draws are Booker T, DDP, Kanyon, Dustin Rhodes and Sean O'Haire, but I also have the likes of Lance Storm, Mike Awesome, Billy Kidman Shane Douglas, Chuck Palumbo, RVD and KroniK as main event caliber guys.
My next big things according to the creative meeting section are Air Styles, James Storm, Kaz Hayashi, Jamie Knoble and Christian York, all of whom I intend I push pretty heavily, other than York tbh. I've also pegged Mark Jindrak and Shawn Stasiak as potential main eventers down the line.
Yeah, I'll post the PPV results and such as they happen. I'm about to book Uprising right now, which is just my renaming of New Blood Rising since that PPV name seemed pretty specific to a storyline that is no longer playing out. Anyways, it's a mod by Genadi which Big Papa tweaked, so I'm not sure who had the most to do with the backstory, but it's basically just that Mark Cuban came in last second to purchase WCW with the intent to broadcast their programming on HDNet which he would launch in late 2001. For now, we're on Fox Sports 1 which is a pretty small scale broadcaster while waiting for HDNet to start up. The idea is that Cuban wanted to make WCW have more of a real sport feel, too, so the product is changed a bit to favor match quality and realism more than WCW actually did.What's the story behind WCW Lives?

You should post updates on your shows in here. I'd love to follow along to it.
AWA Lives and WCW Lives. Glorious day! I can't wait!Finally, a thread for TEW!
I was thinking of making one just the other day, I'm glad EC brought up this one.
Currently doing the actual run of my 1991 AWA Lives mod, which I plan on running the entirety of 1991 before actually putting it down in writing for a fantasy booker.
