    One more: TIMESHIFTER. Though slight of physique and lacking in grappling expertise, Timeshifter’s ability to reverse the flow of time at will renders him a formidable foe in the ring.

    Whoa. Yeah, that’s a really good one. Timeshifter’s ability could be limited to small areas, so the audience would see time flow backwards in the ring, but for them, time would flow normally. Or would it? They could never be quite certain...

    Definitely. It would also would be cool if had the ability speed time up, and then one of his signature routines could be bringing an old man from the audience into the ring, turning him into a baby and then back to an old man again all in like 10 seconds. I could see that as becoming as iconic as Hogan ripping his shirt off or Jake the Snake busting out Damien after the match.

    What's great here is that you are basically describing Kushida from New Japan Pro Wrestling, who wrestles with a completely un-ironic Marty McFly gimmick.

    Dick Allen was a true professional singer. He sang in a high, delicate tenor that belied his powerful body.

    New Faces at NAWA

    On Monday the 15th of March, Ernie Ladd announced the signing of two workers to bolster the roster for NAWA's weekly shows. Both are expected to slot directly into the main event and upper midcard picture.

    Ron Simmons - Simmons is a 28 year old muscular heavyweight. He was an All-American football player in college, and we managed to lure him away from an exclusive contract with JCP. He will slot directly into the main event picture as a bad ass babyface.


    Lanny Kean - Kean is a 26 year old heavyweight who also wrestles as Moondog Cujo. My booking team thinks that he has some popularity with the Midwest crowd, which will cover for his merely average skills in the ring. We will book him a hillbilly babyface.

    NAWA Thursday Night Wrestling - March 18, 1987
    Great Lakes Sports Arena, Fraser, MI - 3,400 seat capacity

    Landel and Kean were causing some grief backstage before the show. I gave each of them a stern talking to, and they both responded positively.

    1. Mark Callous def. Wayne Bloom by pinfall after a Choke Slam (6:58) - This was a messy match, and it was mostly Wayne Bloom’s fault. That said, the booking committee thinks that Mark Callous is really kicking ass with his loner gimmick. So there’s something that we can work with, at least. (E+)
    2. Matt Borne def. Al Snow by pinfall after a Northern Exposure (7:44) - Decent wrestling in this match, and it got the crowd worked up. So it did it’s job early on the card. (D)
    3. Eddie Gilbert cuts a promo hyping his upcoming match. (D)
    4. Eddie Gilbert def. Brad Armstrong with a schoolboy roll up (7:34) - Decent wrestling, but the crowd was a little bit cool. (D-)
    5. Brian Pillman and Sam Houston def. Johnny Ace and Sid Vicious by pinfall after a Steer Buster (10:20) - Strong in-ring performance by Pillman, but not too great for everyone else. Pillman and Houston apparently have great chemistry as a team - so they might be our babyface tag team going forward. (D+)
    6. Bam Bam Bigelow def. John Tenta by pinfall after a Power Bomb (7:37) - Good wrestling here. Can you imagine Bam Bam Bigelow power bombing Earthquake? That's wild. (D+)
    7. Buddy Landel cuts a promo on Terry Taylor in advance of their match. Final a decent angle. I'll see if I can get Landel on the mic more often. (C-)
    8. Buddy Landel def. Terry Taylor by pinfall with a handful of tights (9:51) - Decent match. I'll see if I can get an ongoing feud out of this pair. (D+)
    9. Ron Bass def. Ron Simmons by pinfall with his feet on the ropes for the NAWA Heavyweight Championship (12:22) - Good match, and the crowd liked it. Simmons was apparently a little off his regular game - I suppose we can expect better things to come. Our first major main event program might be Simmons trying to get the belt off of Bass. (C-)
    10. Bass beats down Simmons in the ring after the match. (D)

    C- rating overall - so we are getting slow and steady improvement. Our popularity in the Great Lakes region improves again. 3,400 in attendance for another sellout.

    9 of the 16 wrestlers on your previous ticket have passed on. Wrestling, for all it's fakery, must be the most hazardous to one's health "sport" in the biz.

    Mark Callous (53), Wayne Bloom (60 and still ticking), Matt Borne (55), Al Snow (54, still present), Eddie Gilbert (33), Brad Armstrong (51), Brian Pillman (35), Sam Houston (53 and going), Johnny Ace (55 and present), Sid Vicious (57 and present), Bam Bam Bigelow (45), John Tenta (42), Buddy Landel (53), Terry Taylor (62 and present), Ron Bass (68), and Ron Simmons (60 and present).

    NAWA Wednesday Night Wrestling - March 24, 1987
    Sioux City Municipal Auditoriam, Sioux City, IO - 3,500 seat capacity

    1. Mark Callous def. Brian Adams by pinfall following a tombstone piledriver (6:37) - Not a great match, but our bookers continue to be impressed by the strides that Mark Callous is making in the ring. (E)
    2. Lanny Kean def. Wayne Bloom by pinfall (6:02) - This was a sloppy match, but the crowd was super into it. Kean’s hillbilly gimmick was positively received by the crowd, and Wayne Bloom appears to be improving in the ring. (D-)
    3. Owen Hart def. Norm Smiley by pinfall (6:24) - This match was a mess, mostly due to Norm Smiley. I think I need one more middleweight heel on the roster for matches like this one. (E)
    4. Matt Borne def. Brad Armstrong by pinfall following a Northern Exposure (9:25) - This was a decently worked match, and the crowd was very into it. (D)
    5. Ron Simmons was cutting a promo in the ring before his match, when Ron Bass ran out to hit him with a cowboy boot. After a brief scuffle in the ring, Bam Bam Bigelow ran out to chase Ron Bass off. (D)
    6. Ron Simmons def. Sid Vicious by pinfall following a Dominator (8:21) - This was a sub-par match, with most of the blame landing on Sid Vicious’ shoulders. We will get Simmons fighting some more talented opponents soon. (D)
    7. Brian Pillman and Sam Houston cut a promo in the ring about their upcoming tag team match against Eddie Gilbert and Johnny Ace. We let Pillman go off script, which worked super well, but this also threw Sam Houston off his game (E)
    8. Brian Pillman and Sam Houston def. Eddie Gilbert and Johnny Ace by pinall to win the NAWA Tag Team Championship titles (9:32) - This was a solid match, but the crowd was strangely quiet for it. Both teams have good chemisty - so we will probably continue this feud for a while. (C-)
    9. Buddy Landel cuts an in-ring promo to hype up his match with Terry Taylor. (D)
    10. Buddy Landel def. Terry Taylor by pinfall after choking Taylor with a t-shirt (10:27) - This was a decent match, and the bookers think that Landel is continuing to make improvements. (D+)
    11. Ron Bass def. Bam Bam Bigelow by stoppage to retain the NAWA Heavyweight title (10:24) - This was a wild brawl that made for a decent match that was well-received by the crowd. It was stopped after Bigelow got a cut above his eye. Bass worked harder than Bigelow throughout the match. (C-)

    We got a C- final grade that should improve our popularity. The final attendance was 3,034.

    Matt Borne was drunk during the show. We gave him a stern talking to. He didn’t receive it particularly well. Bigelow was drunk and high again. We fined him this time, and he was pretty pissed off about it.
