Total Championship Wrestling


As many of you already know, roleplays have long been a part of the Interactive Roleplay Forum, going back a decade. A relatively long break from the scene means there is a new hunger to roleplay from people both new and old in this community, and this is where TCW comes in.

Total Championship Wrestling is the first wrestling roleplay in the IRP, and on neoseeker as a whole, for eight months. Many of the veteran members of the forum will be able to tell you that this is almost unheard of, but activity reached a low and it was decided to put roleplaying on an indefinite break. That break is now over, and TCW aims to give everybody the fun, creative experience that they deserve. The roleplay promotes creativity, working together as a team to create fun and exciting storylines, and helps people hone their writing ability in general. But above all else, TCW promotes fun. The whole aim of the roleplay is for people to have something that they enjoy to do in their downtime, and if you’re not enjoying it, someone isn’t doing their job right. I hope you all have a good time in TCW, and I look forward to reading all of your creative and exciting storylines!

Below are a few simple rules that we request people abide by. We aren’t going to rip your head off if you make the mistake once or twice if you’re new, but if you consistently break the rules we may need to consider whether or not you’re in the roleplay.

So, how do I get started?

For the majority of you at this stage, this won’t apply. But for anybody who missed the signup thread, all you need to do is PM myself or killer iPod and we will make sure you are added to the roster.

Simply entitle your message [Signup], and state what unoccupied character or diva you would like to take on. We will get you added to the roster as soon as we possibly can, and you can be on your way roleplaying in no time.

Participation and Quality
Wrestling roleplays have long sought an optimal level of activity for its players. In TCW, we want activity, but we want decent activity. Quality OVER Quantity. Numerous, but low-quality roleplays will obviously have a harder time stacking up next to better written pieces, even though there may be less of them. Simply putting words together isn't enough, it's how you use them to your advantage. It is your goal to make the reader believe in your character. Knowing this will take you quite far in roleplaying.

In line with the quality over quantity thought process, we’re going to be implementing a roleplay limit in TCW. It’s nothing too strict, with a counted limit of three roleplays a week for a normal weekly show, and four for a Pay Per View, unless you and your opponent between you agree on a higher or lower limit, and both of you PM myself or killer iPod with the arrangement.

Leave of Absence
Real life can get in the way, we get it. If this happens and you can’t roleplay, simply PM one of the authorities and let us know. If you let us know, we don’t get annoyed.

The maximum time you can use on any given hiatus is ONE MONTH. Your character will be held frozen until the one month date. Unfortunately, if you have not yet returned by that point, your character(s) will become a free agent(s), available for the taking by absolutely anyone interested. If you return three months later, and said character is vacated, you can take them back, no questions asked.

ALWAYS INFORM! - Nothing pisses us off more than someone who carelessly leaves. Your character suffers needless losses, and effort is spent writing matches for someone who fails to compete. If you fail to inform us of your departure, you do not get a month. Depending on the circumstances and actions, you may lose your character in two weeks. If you come back to find you’ve been let go, you may also find we’ve imposed a suspension and you can’t pick up another character until the suspension has expired.

What can I do if I'm unhappy?

If you feel unsatisfied with the company, whether it be a bad call, problems with another roleplayer, or just need a private consult, feel free to contact us. We will get back to you as soon as possible. Rest assured that both of us will see your message and discuss it. Also, do not be afraid to call one of us out if you feel one of us may be the problem. We are mature people, and we can take a bit of criticism. Simply be respectful and honest.

  • SEND A PRIVATE MESSAGE to one (or both, or all) of the authorities. Do this so we can look at and solve any issues.
  • DO NOT post it in the general discussion. Honestly, public approval is not needed to solve most problems you may have. If you are unhappy with the ruling and opinions of the council, again, you are risking your account on this site by taking it public. We honestly would rather you stick around, so just play it nice and take care of your issues properly.

    - - - - -
    That’s about it! If you have any further questions, feel free to PM us, or ask in the general discussion. We’ll be happy to get back to you and answer any questions as soon as we can.

    Only the best storylines will be archived. The archive will be used at the end of the year to look back at potential nominees when doing the awards for the year. It will also serve as a reminder for other people, to see what they should be aspiring to with their own feuds.

    Current Storylines:

    The Union: After Brian Kendrick defeated Ryback at the Pay Per View to gain entry into the TCW Championship series, he was booked to face John Cena in his opening series match. Paul Heyman insisted that he needed something a little bit extra to defeat the multiple time World Champion, and agreed to help him out and organise some backup if he agreed to take on Heyman as his manager. Kendrick ultimately agreed, and the backup turned out to be none-other-than Ryback, who interfered in the Main Event match and allowed Kendrick to get a pinfall victory over John Cena, a momentous moment in his career. The following week, CM Punk was subjected to a vicious assault by the newly named 'Union', and offered a place in the stable. He made it quite clear that he wasn't interested in joining, but is this just the beginning of a serious problem between the Union and CM Punk?

    Archived Storylines:

    b]Dean Ambrose and Alex Riley: [/b] The Most Dangerous Man in TWC is a man on a mission. He's bringing about a revolution to the wrestling industry, hoping to wipe certain types of wrestlers from the face of the business altogether. He has attacked Taz and Terry Funk with a railroad spike. Enter Alex Riley, a stereotypical "hero". Riley's ways deeply contrast Dean's, which sets them apart, and has brought about a few matches that have gone both ways. Dean Ambrose crossed the line when he kidnapped Alex Riley's girlfriend, Layla, which set A-Ry over the edge...

    Dean Ambrose

    The anxious crowd pops at the mention of some of their favorite wrestlers from the past whom they haven't seen in action in eight months since the business went down in popularity, thus causing a shut down. Before the crowd could go another further in their chants, a laugh is heard coming from behind the blackness of the titan tron. Suddenly, a picture is shown. The parking lot of the venue, the fans took notice and died down in their confusion. A man walked in front of the camera, with his a black hood over his head and spoke once more.

    The crowd gives off major heat to this hooded man, who has yet to reveal himself other than his sadistic smile. The man begins to slowly remove the hood, showing that he is none other than Dean Ambrose, a man who has wrestled all over the world, even having a stint in the World Wrestling Entertainment. Some of the crowd recognizes this man and very few cheers are barely audible over the enormous amount of heat. Ambrose flips the hair from his eyes and smirks, enjoying every second of this.

    Ambrose shows off his smirk once more before pushing the camera from his face and walking off, leaving the crowd wondering what to expect from this highly disturbed individual. Could he really mean what he said? Only time will tell and we'll find out tonight, when TCW goes to THE WARZONE.

    As the crowd readies for the first show of Total Championship Wrestling, the lights dim down and an image appears on the Titantron. A dusty, abandoned lot appears containing a lone streetlight, flickering on and off. The fence surrounding it is rusted and bent in places while the lone brick wall has been chipped away at countless times. Then the view switches to a hand being wrapped in beige tape before cracking the knuckles. A voice begins speaking, belonging to a man with a heavy English accent..

    “In real life, you have to fight your way to the top. You have to claw for every last bit of respect and earn your rewards, they aren’t handed to you. Amongst all the lights and smoke and mirrors, that view is lost. In my past, there was only one rule for victory, for survival. You fight or you die. If you stopped fighting, you would soon stop breathing. Those fights would keep a fire burning, they would keep you rugged. Survive long enough and you could finally escape to a paradise....but was it truly a paradise? You’d weaken, be made soft. That fire that gave you life would eventually burn out and leave you a shell of what you used to be. The paradise, illuminated by bright lights and stars, is only full of lies and fantasies. Life was easy and civilized in those worlds. That is not how the truth is. Life was painful, full of fury and anger.”

    The voice pauses as we now switch to a view of a multitude of unknown men, all being struck. A strong right hand to the jaw. A kick to the gut of a man just recovering. Another one’s head being thrown to the ground. Then, the man continues speaking.

    “This is real life. This is the agony you have to endure, the pain you have to be willing to put yourself through. It isn’t an illusion, these aren’t magic tricks. You have to take extreme amounts of pain and in return deal even more insane amounts. Your body will know nothing of kindness once you are fully immersed in the abyss. I climbed out of the abyss after existing in it for years, first making it my home, then turning it into my domain. Once I had a grip on the edge and had pulled myself out, I thought the world I had entered was perfect. I thought it was what I really wanted in life. But we never really know what we want in life, do we? As time passed and I proved myself to be great in the world or lies, I wondered what was beyond this. What happens when I finally get to the top? And among those thoughts, I realized what had happened. My fire had died, my survival had been my undoing and my demise. I was no longer one who had ruled in the abyss, I was now one of those who would be stepped on. And so I went back in.”

    The video changes again. We see the shadows of two figures, reflecting on the crumbling brick wall, illuminated by the streetlight. They fight, back and forth, one constantly having the edge over the other. Before the final fist is thrown and one of the shadows falls to the ground, its owner not getting back up.

    “I was weak. I wasn’t the master of destruction I had been. I was a bottom-feeder. Incapable of even trying to fight with those who I had easily bested prior. Those who I had never even considered a threat, those who I thought were nothing more than pebbles beneath my feet now saw me as the pebble. Amongst that abyss, I fought once again. I fought for survival and it was harder than before. I had made myself weak, I had adjusted to a softer life. Though it wasn’t just survival I was fighting for. I was fighting to revive myself, bring back to life who I really was. Not a civilized man who had no interest in petty fights. No, instead I fought to bring myself back to the man who knew what he had to do to survive. A man who could end anyone who tried to place themselves above him. It took time and effort, it took all the blood I could afford to give and then I had to take twice that. After all was said and done, I was done being a bottom-feeder. I had brought myself back to the top, looking down on the pebbles beneath my feet. It was amongst the top, conquering everyone who tried to take me down, that I realized what had happened to me. I had evolved. No longer was I the man who fought purely for survival, nor was I the civilized man who was a shell of my former self. I was beyond both of those. I was not a savage, but I had the instinct of one. I was not a gentleman, though I held the same class. I was the perfect combination of two opposites.”

    The video cuts back to the two hands, now wrapped in beige tape on both fists and enclosed in fists. The view falls backwards, giving us full view of the man from Manchester, Wade Barrett. He raises his fists to his face and cracks his knuckles once more before glaring forward. Dust seems to sweep away this image and we see his name printed on screen, cursive lettering, yet tattered and worn. As the screen remains still on that image, Barrett’s voice is heard once more.

    “My name is Wade Barrett and my barrage, my change, and my legacy...has only just begun.”

    Mark Henry

    A video plays on the Titantron showing a large man in a hoodie and sunglasses driving an SUV. The camera is on the passenger side looking at the driver at a side view. A Three 6 Mafia song plays on the radio, but the driver turns it down. With his hood up and sunglasses on, the camera cannot see his face, but by his action he has shown that he is angry. Fed up. He takes a deep breath, then begins to speak his mind to anyone willing to listen.

    The man throws back his hood, revealing to everyone (that couldn't already tell) that he is Mark Henry. The World's Strongest Man. With his face shown, it is clear he is snarling. Snarling in disgust. He begins to talk again, picking up from where he left off.

    Henry parks his car just outside the arena. The camera follows him as he opens his door, hops down, slams it, and looks up at the building. Marveling at its beauty, or maybe becoming disgusted by the thoughts of the people he will be facing at this company; it's not easy to tell. He removes his sunglasses and takes one long breath before taking his first steps toward the arena, his first steps for the championship.

    Dean Ambrose

    The video pans to an an arena, unoccupied seats throughout it. A stage light beaming down on the center of a wrestling ring. The arena seems quite familiar, resembling the old Extreme Championship Wrestling arena, where hardcore wrestling became mainstream and wrestlers left blood, sweat, and tears. In the center of the ring, none other than the man who made his presence known earlier, Dean Ambrose. The camera zooms in on Ambrose, who doesn't even acknowledge the camera, but stares at the empty seat, the empty arena. With a look of disgust on his face, he finally glares over to the camera and begins to speak.

    The crowd doesn't take this kindly and starts to chant the old classic "E-C-DUB!" The camera panned to a couple of members in the crowd even wearing original ECW shirts, who were chanting along with the rest of the crowd. Ambrose is still standing in the ring with a look of disgust on his face, not towards the arena, but to the fans. Ambrose shakes his head in disappointment before speaking once more.

    Ambrose pushes the camera away and exits the ring. The camera begins to follow him up the ramp and behind the curtains. Laying on the floor right behind the curtains, was the "Living Legend" himself, Terry Funk. Terry was laying in a pool of his own blood, motionless. Ambrose glares down at Funk and then towards the camera with a sick, sadistic smile on his face. Reaching his hand into his jacket pocket, he pulls something from it. Hiding the object in the sleeve of his jacket, kneels before the bloody Terry Funk and pulls Terry by his hair, showing the world what Dean Ambrose is truly capable of. The blood still gushing from Funk's skull, Ambrose pulls the object from his sleeve, revealing it to be a railroad spike! He digs it into Funk's skull, jabbing it over and over again! Funk screams in agony before being thrown face first back into the concrete floor. Ambrose stands up, covered in his victims blood with the same grin on his face from earlier and speaks.

    Brock Lesnar

    The air was tight, suffocatingly hot. The locker room’s sauna door had been left open.
    He sat there staring at the contract, he couldn’t be bothered to read it, in fact he couldn’t really read. It claimed he still had another year fighting for UFC, “*bleep* it” he thought, as he grasped the top corner and tore down through the pages.


    “Hello, it’s Brock…”
    “Yeah that’s right, Uh huh”
    “Yeah I *bleep*ing quit this shit, you cheated me out of that Silva fight, so just go and shove that million dollar contract right up your….” The phone line cut.

    Brock got up and went backstage, towel wrapped around his neck, he was seen chatting to a man, with a large figure, tall and menacing looking, a true icon of wrestling.

    “You going to…Yeah”
    “I got it covered, any shit goes down and we’re good?”
    “So you’re going to accept Torres’ offer? That’s one hell of a contract”

    Brock leaves the man in the shadows and turns to cameras uttering the words:
    “I’m here to stay this time, F-5 style” before entering the door with a metallic GM plaque bolted on the front.

    A dark, damp, mouldy room is the setting that is thrust upon us through the camera lens at this time. It seems almost like a disused arena boiler room, but... something isn’t right. As the camera slowly pans across the room, something shuffles past the lower portion of the shot, causing the camera-man to sharply move the camera towards the movement, but the darkness prevents anybody from seeing what exactly the source is. Slowly, cautiously, the camera returns to facing ahead at shoulder height, but quickly the view is obstructed by a large, dark figure which causes the cameraman to take a step backwards in surprise. The darkness prevents the viewer from seeing exactly who it is, but the sense of hearing was never stronger, as we hear a several deep breaths emerging from the figure, seeing the shape move ever so slightly with every inhalation of oxygen. Outside of the heavy breathing, a few drops of water falling from the ceiling to the ground can be heard, before being interrupted by the sound of heavy footsteps which very slowly make their way towards the camera. The figure gets larger and larger as the silhouette approaches, and the light from the camera allows us to catch a glimpse of the masked face of the man, though he abruptly turns his head to the side so that we’re left with a profile shot of a man who is recognizable to any wrestling fan of the last fifteen years... The Big Red Machine; Kane. An evil smirk can be seen formulating on the side of the face that the viewer can see, before the monster slowly turns his head back towards the camera so that he is glaring down the lens directly with his dark, piercing eyes.

    Slowly, Kane lifts his hand up to his forehead and sweeps his long, dark hair out of his face and over his head so that it rests on the back of his neck. The smirk slowly disappears from his face, and his eyes begin to narrow as he thoughtfully ponders his next few words.

    Kane slowly begins to smirk again, before breaking into a chilling laugh as the camera fades to black.

    CM Punk.

    As the camera's cut back to the arena, which shows the work crew preparing for TCW's debut show within the next few days, the camera zooms to the titantron, which appears to have a blank uninteresting screen, a split second later a static sound is heard and a logo with a message appears on the screen flickering around on a black background, this logo looks very familiar within the wrestling world, it bares a clenched fist in the colour red and is holding a lightening strike, on the back of this clenched fist is an 'X' and the message along with it reads "This is a message bought to you by CM Punk". The message slowly fades out and the cameras cut backstage which the same logo appearing on a white background, at the cameras zoom out a figure is stood there, short hair, beard, arms folded and an arrogant cocky smile on his face, this figure would be non other than CM Punk!

    Punk unfolds his arms and slowly tilts his head to look up at the ceiling, he's contemplating what he wishes to say and address to the TCW locker room and any of the fans around the world, after a few seconds, he tilts his head back down and begins to speak:

    "Ladies and gentlemen, for those of you who do not know who I am, my name is CM Punk, I was born and raised in Chicago and have accomplished many wonderful things in my life, I have held major titles in other promotions and live a straight edge lifestyle, for those of you who maybe uneducated, this means I do not poison my body with drugs, I do not smoke and I also do not drink, But let me not go on and on about my lifestyle because there maybe some of you who just wouldn't understand what it means to be straight edge. Now let me move on to some more important things, like for one, I actually have no idea who and nor do I care for that matter, is apart of the TCW roster because when you can stand here and say, you are the 'Best in the World' you don't have to worry about who your first match, second, third, oh it doesn't matter which match it is, the end result will always be the same and that is me showing you why I am the best wrestler in the world today."

    CM Punk takes a little breather as he paces around in his white t-shirt and jeans and what appears to be in a locker room, stroking his beard, he looks down at the floor with a frown on his face. Punk stops and grins, just when it looks like he's about to say something again, he points towards the camera, grins some more and puts his index finger up, turns round and shows the world the back of his t-shirt that reads "Best in the World", afterwards, Punk turns back around towards the camera with a slight frown on his face again and begins speaking some more:

    "You know, these words on my t-shirt isn't what some of you would call a 'gimmick' or some sort of phase that I will grow out of, because to be quite honest with you I could be a so called 'face' or a so called 'heel' or whatever it is you people label us these days, I will always be that same guy, outspoken, brutally honest and damn true to my word and that's why as of now, I will show everyone that I will be the next world champion, forget all these other so called wannabes that are here in TCW, I am CM Punk and I am here to make things interesting, entertain you the way I do best, dropping pipe bombs and being myself. I don't need flashy pyrotechnics or to dye my hair to stand out from the crowd and make me look like a superstar, ugh! A superstar, that was the other company right? I am a wrestler and you are going to get my 100% every-time to put on the best wrestling matches you have ever seen. My name is CM Punk and TCW, are you ready for what is to come? You had better be..."

    As CM Punk utters those last few words he smirks at the camera and walks away, the camera turns around and slowly fades out back to the titantron which starts the static music again, CM Punks fist logo appears back on the screen with a slightly altered message this time around reading "This was a message paid by CM Punk".

    Exordium; Total Wrestling Federation -

    Hi kids!

    Do you like violence? I think it's a bit silly, but it's the business I know and love. There can't be any victory, any glory, very much of anything without violence.

    Just ask Al Snow.

    I digress; Total Wrestling Federation, spear-headed by the great Eve Torres as General Manager of their show WarZone! Somebody forgot to hit the space bar on that one, but this carnival enthusiast isn't judging anyone.

    Why TCW? Why wrestle at all when you're a living legend of my status? This world needs something it lacks that I don't; happiness. These guys are always so angry with one another... it's outrageous! How can you get so damn angry about something? I suppose that just means they're passionate, but I think there are some underlying problems that I can help them solve. Think of me like an anger management councellor and all these guys are my patients. Some of them are very large and in charge so they won't take to my methods. And that's okay! It'll just take extra tender love and care from me, the Doinkster, before we can make a breakthrough and really get somewhere.

    Then there are some guys that just do the wrong thing. Lets take Rob Van Dam for example's sake. RVD 4:20? Is that something you should be flaunting when your fan base generally consists or a massive amount of children? Sure, it's not meth, but marijuana is still a drug and still illegal (mostly)!!

    I mean, I smoke, but that's because I have glaucoma. Not because I'm a stoner.

    The other side of substance abuse is alcohol... and boy, when people think about drinking in the wrestling ring, they think about Stone Cold Steve Austin. They might think about Sandman but, really, who thinks about Sandman anymore? Lets not get off topic; if marijuana is bad then alcohol is definitely worse. Cirrosis of the liver, hello? And it's so unpleasantly smelly. What's the point? If you need substances to be happy then you really don't know the definition of true happiness.

    And I'm going to bring it to all of you.

    Scene; In the GARDEN!

    We see our face-painted heroes walking up to the first stop on WarZone's list, Madison Square Garden. Doink has a huge water gun in hand but the look on his face gets less and less excited. The two are making what looks like their second or perhaps even third trip around the arena. Dink is shaking his little midget head with one hand running through his rugged green dreads. He has spent the last ten minutes trying to explain to the very aloof Doink that there isn't an actual garden anywhere near the arena. There are a couple trees, but that's really it. Doink seems dedicated to finding the garden so he can go apeshit on the plants with the water gun he just purchased from the local WalMart. Doink makes it to the front door and stops to sit on the curb of the concrete looking rather defeated. Dink puts his hand around the sad clown.

    Dink rushes out of sight and earshot. The camera tilts to watch the vertically-challenged manager hobble over to Michael Cole. Cole was clearly on a cell phone and wanted nothing to do with Dink but it was very apparent that this manager wasn't taking 'no,' 'go away,' or 'I will sue you' for an answer. Michael rolls his eyes and dismisses his phone call. He pockets the phone and walks over to Doink just in time for the clown to jolt up. Michael's eyes go wide as Doink unloads on him, getting water all over the cheap polyester suit that was classic Michael Cole wardrobe.

    Doink smiles and nods, pointing the gun at Cole again as the announcer throws both hands in the air to block what he thought was going to be another onslaught of water all over what was probably his most expensive suit.

    The camera follows Michael Cole as he walks away. In the distance you notice the soaked announcer walk past Ron Simmons. Simmons looks from Cole to Doink, then back to Cole.

    Fade to black.

    The TCW cameras return back to the ring as a annoying loud voice is heard over the pa system in the arena.

    "EXCUSE ME!"

    The familiar voice says as the crowd in attendance start to boo the familiar voice. As the crowd boo though, the familiar voice starts again.


    The crowd starts to boo louder as the familiar voice comes walking out from the back, to show themselves. Vickie Guerrero comes walking out with her "Cougar" necklace hanging from her necklace, wearing cheetah print and holding a microphone.

    "Ladies and gentlemen, please help me welcome the future face of TCW, the "Show Off" Dolph Ziggler!

    The crowd starts to boo as Dolph Ziggler's theme song "I'm Here To Show The World" comes over the speakers and the "Show Off" comes walking out from the back, dressed up in a red and black suit. Ziggler stops at the top of the ramp and turns around, then doing his signature taunt at the top of the ramp, slicking his blonde hair back. Then continuing his way down to the ring, as the live crowd in attendance is still booing Vickie Guerrero and himself. Ziggler gets onto the side of the ring and holds the ropes open for Vickie to get in then he gets in grabbing a microphone off the steel steps outside.

    "It seems like things won't be different then there were when I was at the other place. Your all still booing me, When I arrived here earlier, I was in the back and saw some old faces, and I have also saw some new faces. And one of those old faces I saw was, Jeff Hardy. Really? Jeff Hardy is here. didn't you die from drug abuse like 3 years ago? I don't even know how you passed the drug test to get into this business. Jeff I'm officially calling you out right now. On the first show of TCW, why don't we make it officially right now! Jeff Hardy Vs Dolph Ziggler!"

    The crowd seems to like that idea and starts to chant "Hardy" As the cameras float around the arena showing little kids and even some adults wearing there Jeff Hardy attire.

    "You people don't get it do you? Jeff Hardy doesn't have what it takes to beat me, I am the "Show Off" I am one of the most hardest workers ever in the Wrestling business. Here in TCW will be different then my past businesses I have been on. I will win the World Heavyweight Championship, and I will make sure my reign will last long then nine minutes."

    Ziggler pauses and pulls the microphone away from his mouth. As the crowd stops chanting "Hardy" and begins to chant" Ziggler Sucks" Ziggler then moves the microphone back up to his mouth.


    Ziggler then drops the microphone and exits the ring with his theme song playing over the speakers in the arena as cameras fade to black.

    With the main “War Zone” theme playing in the background, TCW cameras cut backstage to a brown-painted door just inside Madison Square Garden. It’s a well lit hallway, given that the garden has been around for so long. It sticks out prominently against white concrete walls.

    Cole: We’re back live on TCW War Zone and…what the?
    Tazz: What’s goin on?

    There is an absolutely enormous pop as the door opens, revealing the darkened skies of a cool summer New York Night. Into the arena steps none other than Stone Cold Steve Austin, dressed in his signature cameo Hat and Jacket to go with his jean shorts. He carries his black duffle bag at his side, a seriously pissed off look on his face.

    Cole: Oh my gosh, it’s Stone Cold! Stone Cold Steve Austin is here!

    The cameras continue following Stone Cold as he heads to his dressing room. He is viewed from below, the giant white word “WHAT?” present on his chest. He looks focused, determined, and poised as the cameras cut away.

    Tazz: Boy you said it, Booka. Who know what kinda impact tha Rattlesnake is gonna have here tonight!
    Cole: Your guess is as good as mine, but if Stone Cold is here in TCW, than anything, and fans I do mean anything, is possible!
