Lore 1[edit | edit source]

Welcome, everyone, to the first ever TFR-BCW draft night!
Tonight, we shall make the final adjustments to the rosters that will accompany us for the near future!
Now, let's get the business. The rules of the draft.
The picks have already been made by us, General Managers of both companies.
However, they shall be revealed tonight and on our rival federation's show.
Tonight, even number picks shall be revealed.
On the next show, it'll be the time for odd numbers.
There are 30 draft picks total. You are also allowed to pick entire stables and tag teams at once if you so desire.
With the 30 pick total, each company gets 15.
We distributed it so you'd see more TFR picks today, and more BCW picks on Monday, though.
We'll reveal our picks in reverse order, in order to secure you remain interested until the end.
Therefore, we'll start from the last pick, #30, and make our way to the first one.
The picks will be shown in three rounds. First, the five first even number picks, that is, #30, #28, #26, #24 and #22.
Afterwards, we will reveal #20, #18, #16, #14 and #12.
Finally, on the last round of the night, you'll get to see picks #10, #8, #6, #4 and finally #2.
Due to an agreement, BCW will get to have pick #1 overall. TFR, however, gets the right to pick both #2 and #3.
I can promise you, TFR fans, that I am not afraid of taking risks today.
I'll make sure we win this draft, no matter what it takes!
Now, who are we up against, you ask?
The General Manager of BCW, of course! And I ask you all to welcome him right now!

Hahahah, what is it, Wright? Not like you to lose your cool like that! You look like you've seen a ghost!
Well, maybe you have, fucker.
I already got through security. There's no issues here.
Besides... You asked them to give me a warm welcome, didn't you?
What?! You can't mean...
I'm the General Manager of BCW. At least for the two nights of the draft, that is.
You made one vital mistake there, Wright. Our bet was that I couldn't wrestle on either show in case I lost...
Which means I can still take such a behind-the-scenes role!
Of course, I'm on a two-night contract. I don't have any management skills or interest to work as a GM whatsoever.
However, BCW did a smart move... They wanted to hit TFR where it hurt the most.
They wanted to hit YOU where it hurt the most. They wanted the psychological advantage in this.
And that's what we have right now. Just look at your face!
The picks I made will hurt you, Wright. You can fucking bet on that.
Y-You think a cheating bastard like you has the advantage over me?
The future of this place is 100% secured by the picks I made. You can't do anything about it!
From my list alone, I know TFR won this!
Maybe we should get started already, then?
I wanna wipe that smug grin off your face.
You're welcome to try! We're on, after this next match!

Lore 2[edit | edit source]

It's finally time for us to begin!
As was noted before, this first round will reveal picks #30, #28, #26, #24 and #22.
Three of those for TFR, two for BCW.
Now, my last pick is someone I respect, despite his acts of what could even be considered treason.
However, what I'm looking at here is what is best for business. And knowing BCW's lack of interest in drafting this man...
Pick #30, for TFR, is...
Hahaha, wow! The guy that lost to RAKESH?!
And ALMOST lost to Ebisumaru, too?!
The guy who is a former world champion, unlike you. And who didn't need to cheat to win it, either.
You're still trying to push that bullshit narrative?
For BCW, pick #28, people that deserve a way better place to be than where they currently are.
Nepotism? As expected of a cheater.
This is a neutral pick, based on their value as wrestlers. I asked my superiors beforehand what they thought and they approved.
As if you're one to talk about playing favorites. Besides, they got drafted pretty low, because I knew you wouldn't pick them!
Of course I wouldn't! In fact, I must thank you for, once in your life, helping cleanse TFR of the filth.
Just shut your fucking mouth and keep going!
Heh, guess I'm the one getting to your head here!
Next up, for TFR, a stable pick. Number 26...
And to go with them... For pick number 24, TFR selects a team who's on the rise lately!
You seriously need the numbers, after all. Trying to take as much advantage of the draft rules as possible.
Well, the last pick of this round...
Now, I have my doubts about this one, but... It wasn't a personal choice.
I think he does have potential as an in-ring competitor.
Well, that's the last one for the round! We'll come back later on!
Things are looking pretty bad for you guys so far, huh?
I wouldn't think so, Wright. I wouldn't think so.

Lore 3[edit | edit source]

Ah, I know what all of you are thinking!
"Armstrong quit TFR, backstabbed them, and now when he's on his lowest low he'll come crawling back!"
What you don't realize, though, is how I just made the smartest move in wrestling history.
Not only am I the only one to ever hold the BCW and TFR World titles...
I chose the best moment possible to move. Both times.
When I was at the top, as TFR champion... BCW dumped me a truckload of money.
Enough to easily finance my campaign for president.
It gave me so much publicity, too. And then, I became the first world champion of both feds.
Now, what comes after that isn't relevant at all. I had already gotten all I wanted.
By losing the title just before the draft, I could move back. I could come home...
And now I can start over. Stronger and better than before.
I can rebuild my career completely.
I'm making the mother of all omelettes here. I couldn't fret over every egg.
Soon enough, I'll have enough power to end this war myself... By exploiting it at its very start.
And my reconstruction starts now!

Lore 4[edit | edit source]

Now, on to the next round of the draft.
TFR selects a promising new talent that deserves better than what he's been getting.
For BCW... Pick #18 is...
Wait! That low?! That guy is main event material!
How did I miss out on him?! Was he even on the list? Ugh, I didn't think this through!
I see you're starting to lose it, Wright. Good!
Fine! I'll show you! Next, TFR drafts a former BCW Literal Who Champion...
Ah, that guy... He cut a pretty controversial promo recently, didn't he?
What happened to you caring oh so much about "the children"?
We'll make sure his language is adapted to the TFR style of programming! Our promos are PG!
Yeah. I would definitely think so after watching Arikado...
E-Either way... For Pick #14, TFR secures that certain tag team will continue serving the company!
Hmmm? What happened to your "risky" picks, Wright?
Ah, I see. It's rare to see someone wanting to stick with you nowadays, isn't it?
Because, my next pick INSISTED to BCW management that he should be drafted here.
Do you know how pathetic this is, Wright? That multiple people would implore to leave your show?
T-That has n-nothing to do with me! Just poor decisions on their part!
R-Round is over! We'll continue near the end of the show.

...Leave them be?
No, NO! We MUST save him, Fred! He's a good kid! He doesn't know what he's getting into!
We're gonna get Arthur back... Just give me some time.
I have a PLAN!

(I've been searching for so long...)
(Feels like an eternity at this point.)
(Yet, I can't find the "next page" of that diary. Or anything, really.)
(I might've completely lost track of the owner, but...)
...I can't give up. Luck has to be on my side eventually...
(And just as I say that...)
(...A single piece of paper appears under my feet.)
(I pick it up, try to clean it off a bit, and...)

My plan was going perfectly. I was going to ambush him and put an end to this...
I thought the vents were a suitable hiding place.
I had everything set up, but as soon as I went inside...
Darkness covered me, and suddenly I was transported somewhere.
From now on, I'll make it my goal to discover how they work.
I'll go back. I must go somewhere else. I must investigate further.
I'll make sure to write down anything I find.

It's the same handwriting as the last one.
But... It's a previous page?!
As if my day couldn't get any worse.
Well, back inside I go...

Seems like training was too rough for you last week.
He was an experienced soldier. I told you so.
Did you learn anything valuable?
...I'd rather not talk about it, sir.
Where we droppin' next?
I decided to lower your workload for this week. Should be pretty simple.
A middle-aged man talked to me earlier. He said you were his son's biggest hero...
And his son... He just recovered from an unfortunate accident.
Seems like he met a beast of sorts, and was in a pretty rough shape for a few weeks afterwards.
He only recently left the hospital, and his one wish now...
Is to have a chance to wrestle you.
Ah, a fan?! I'm gonna teach him a thing or two, then!
It's almost like charity, isn't it? Make-a-Wish or something?
Maybe we should start doing that, huh?
I'm certain there are kids out there who want to see my snake in person...
I... I'm sure you could've phrased that one better, boss! Ahahahah!
...Let's just go.

Now... Take a deep breath...
Chris. You need to calm down.
The fact that I had to come here in the first place... That proves how much your situation has worsened.
I didn't think I'd actually have to come to your job just to keep you from exploding on someone!
Chris... Get this off your mind for a second.
Your life, your career... Everything is going downhill because of you obsession...
I know you, and I know it's pointless to try to calm you down without letting you blow off some steam first.
So, before we continue. I got you a match tonight.
I'm gonna lose again, doc. I can't focus. Not at all.
Ever since Leon disappeared, my mind is just clouded with thoughts of him, and...
Chris... Are you sure you really want him for your sister, and not f-
Nevermind. Now is not the time for that.
Still, your record lately is 0-3. You know how bad that is, right?
I-If only I went against that Chinese woman! I know I could beat her!
Exactly. The Chinese. Chris, you need to get your anger out on a Chinese person!
That's your treatment! That's why I booked you against a Chinaman tonight!
But it's not Ada... Then WHY?! WHY SHOULD I BOTHER?!
Chris. Deep breath.
Pretend he's Ada for a bit. Just take everything out on him. It'll be okay.
...I always knew I could count on you, doc.
I'll do as you say.

Promo 1[edit | edit source]

Arikado Genya
WWE Universe, I'm out here because you deserve better! You deserve Superstars who will fight for you, not for themselves! You deserve Superstars who have honor, decendy, and respect for this busienss. You deserve the best. But, you're not getting it. So, I'm ehre to change that rightn ow!
I'm sick and tired of some creep coming out here and thinking he can get the better of me. It takes more than a few cheap words to do that, buddy.
You know what? I'm a reasonable guy. So, let's hear him out, huh? JAYDEN, you want to have your moment? Then, come on out.
I can't...I can't just stand idly in the back and let you all suffer from the blowhard that is the man currently standing opposite me in this ring. Allow me the pleasure of sparing you great people from his rambling tirades before everyone in this arena falls asleep faster than you can say "snoozefest".
Arikado Genya
I kind of wish you didn't come out here. Because the beating I'm going to lay on you is going to embarrass you, your family, and relatives who aren't born yet! I don't like embarrassing people that badly. But, in this case, I'm going to enjoy it!
I think you need a reality check because there isn't anything you can say that will change the fact that I am one of the best damn Superstars this company has ever seen, I don't need to convince these people of how great I am because I prove it when the bell rings. The reason why you talk so much is because you can't back up anything say!
Arikado Genya
You know, the difference between you and me is that you have to come out here and steal time. Me, I get it because I earned it.
I'm going to make you my pet project because I see something of myself in you. I really do. At the same time, I feel like I've failed you. I let you convince yourself that you're the man around here, and I did nothing to separate you of that notion. That's on me, and it's my responsibility to set you straight by taking you on and taking you down.
Arikado Genya
Look, pal, I eat punks like you for breakfast without breaking a sweat! But, the fact is, I'm not feeling hungry right now. You're boring me. But, don't worry, when I feel like making the time to beat you senseless, you'll know it!
I don't want to wait until the next Pay-Per-View event. I don't care about fighting on a big stage or having a big, memorable match. I just want to fight you. I want to fight you now, here, in front of these people. I want them to see me kick your ass all around this ring.
Arikado Genya
Hey, can you tell me what I'm supposed to be doing here? Am I supposed to knocking in my knees and tell you I'm scared? Am I supposed to beg? I fear no man because I cannot and will not be beaten. So I'm not sure how these things normally work.
You're going to pay for coming out here and running your mouth tonight. I don't like bullies, especially ones like you! You may think you can push people around here, but you can't push me. Buckle up; you're in for a hell of a bumpy ride when I get you in this ring!

Lore 9[edit | edit source]

The final round of tonight's draft is on. We're on to the top 10, with picks #10, #8, #6, #4 and #2!
First off, TFR keeps a tag team with two very talented individuals.
Trying to secure your talent, still? Well, BCW is doing the same for the next one.
But we're aiming higher, of course. Five at once.
And you said I was the one looking for numbers... What a hypocrite.
Well, you better prepare yourself for TFR's biggest steal of the night...
Most unlucky for you, joining us as pick #6...
You think that shit is gonna faze us?
For pick #4, we're getting...
W-Wait! I heard he was getting promoted to part of Sminem's staff soon!
And he was a dear comrade to us all backstage!
I told you, Wright... Where it hurt the most.
You can't do that. I've made sure to draft everyone who's important to this company!
You haven't seen all of my picks yet, after all... But I'll give you a little taste with Overall Pick #2!
This man is TFR's very first draft pick for a very good reason.
I once thought he was a nobody, a low-carder...
And this spot, I had initially saved for the great Bolo Reynolds, who is thankfully now undraftable.
That's why, my choice for this spot is the future of the industry.
Last Friday, I got to witness his amazing skills in person.
The man who will carry us from this day onwards, and TFR's number one draft pick is...
...Hey guys!
...What are you doing here?
Uh... Where am I?
H-Hey, can't we talk this out?
I just met some weird people. A guy in sunglasses... Then the date in the calendar said 2032...
And Phi was there, and...
A-Anyway, everyone, here is our REAL #1 pick of the draft!
Give it up for Battler!
I still don't know what I did to deserve this...
But I've tried my best ever since getting here!
S-So, at least when it comes to effort... I deserved it, right?
You worked harder than anyone else here.
And last Friday was all the proof I needed.
Aaaahhhh, I can hardly believe it!
Me, Ushiromiya Battler... I made it! I'm at the top of the card!
Ange! Are you seeing this? I-I did it for you! Ihihihihihi!
I bet the old man is proud, too. He's the one who got me here after all!
Dammit, I have so many people to thank for this...
Everyone is proud of you, Battler. I'd say I'm prouder than anyone else, too.
You did it! You proved you're more than a low carder!
Will you just fucking stop this asslicking already?
Shit makes me sick.
Now, this Battler guy... I heard he's pretty cool. We didn't hang out backstage, but he never did anything against me...
That is, until YOU got involved, Wright.
You made him interfere in our match multiple times. You're trying to corrupt him.
You're trying to corrupt everyone around you!
Battler... I don't know you, but don't listen to his flatteries. Don't listen to his promises.
As soon as possible, he'll discard you like trash. This is the type of shithead Wright is.
He's lying. The cheater is lying once again!
I'll take you under my wing, Battler. I'll make sure your talent blooms!
Now, now... The draft is over! Get this man out of here!
Wright, you son of a-
Security, take away this BCW spy! He has no right to be at our show any longer! The draft has ended for the night!
Hahahah, see you next monday!
Now, Battler... Stay right where you are.
Bolo Reynolds is about to have a very important match, and it's about time we repaid the favors we owe him!
You shall accompany him to the ring! Be his manager for this one! I've seen how much talent you have in that role!
I'd rather be wrestling, b-but... Right...
Oh! And one more thing!
You forgot to say it.
...Thank you, Wright.
