    Platinum Swords Universe

    (This was the original layout for my Universe. Below is a general overtake of years 1 through 14. The idea was for it to be one giant roster with shades of boxing rankings in regards to championships. What’s written below takes place in year seven of my universe as I wanted to involve more intrigue. It remained this way up until year 15 where after WrestleMania/Starrcade, I reintroduced promotions to use more of the roster that was in game. Due to the multiple files I have (some corrupted and lost) Posting timelines consistently will be an issue. So what I'll do instead is start posting from the beginning of year 16 where I think my universe mode was the most interesting.)

    Original Layout of Shows from Year 1-14 in Universe Mode

    Monday: Main Event roster. Titles used are WWF & NWA World & WWF/NWA Tag Team Championships.
    Tuesday: Upper Mid Card roster. Titles used are Intercontinental, United States & WWF/NWA Tag Team.
    Wednesday: Mid Card roster. Titles used are Television, National & National Tag Team
    Thursday: 2nd Mid Card Roster which consists of regional titles & US Tag Team.
    Friday: UWF Roster. Titles used are UWF World, Television & US Tag Team.

    General consensus dictates that the NWA & WWF World Heavyweight Championships are the most prestigious titles in the world of professional wrestling. Due to the importance of the championships, these two titles are only defended during Pay Per Views. It is hard to consider one over the other as far as prestige goes. The NWA & WWF titles were merged at one point to make only a single undisputed champion when the Undertaker defeated Magnum TA for his NWA crown and defended the undisputed title for well over a year. The lineage split when Randy Savage defeated Michael Hayes for the WWF version of the undisputed championship to split off the titles. For a shirt time due to this, the WWF title was considered to be the true undisputed championship. However, a non title match between then WWF champion Bad News Brown & then NWA champion Magnum TA put the moniker of undisputed into dispute when Magnum pinned Brown during a live event. The win by Magnum raised the question of weather the championship makes an individual the undisputed champion, or does simply winning grant you the name of undisputed champion.

    Being that both the WWF & NWA did not want their championships to be merged into one title, they came upon an agreement that every year at Wrestlemania, the two champions would meet in a non title match to decide for that year what organization would be donned the moniker of true undisputed champion. However, this caused problems from day one as a month before Wrestlemania, Jake Roberts defeated Andre the Giant for the WWF championship. The issue was that Jake Roberts was already signed to take on Sting for the NWA United States Championship at Wrestlemania, however, winning the WWF crown meant that Roberts was also obligated to take on the NWA World Champion Sid Vicious. Sting’s original contract to take on Roberts was delayed for three months, since October, until it was decided that it would take place at Mania. Due to the delay of the match, the contractual match between Sting and Roberts was updated from ‘Open Date’ to ‘Mandatory’ as Roberts had held true to his rank at number one with not a single title match granted. The dilemma came as due to the rules, failing to make any mandatory match would mean a significant fine and a drop of 20 spots on all title rankings. Sting, usually silent, came fourth and stated that he wanted the match and would not back out of it. The World Wrestling Federation was furious as this was seen as the NWA making Sting force the match so that Sid Vicious would face a more tired opponent, and thus, have an easier time defeating Roberts compared to if he was fresh.

    The writing was on the wall. The NWA was forcing the Roberts/Sting match thinking Sid would have an easier time winning the undisputed moniker against Jake Roberts for the NWA. The one that stood the most to lose was Jake Roberts. Roberts however, stated that he would take on both opponents, but only if the NWA championship was on the line as he would not put up the WWF title being he would be involved in an earlier match. The WWF released a statement stating that they did not approve of Jake Roberts ultimatum, however, they would be willing to make it a double championship match as long as Roberts received a manditory rematch the following pay per view. The NWA agreed and it appeared as if the world was against ‘The Snake’, but Jake Roberts had other plans as during his match against Sting, he walked out of the match, taking a count out loss with out throwing a punch or taking any punishment. The Champion vs Champion match still took place, but the end results changed wrestling as we know it.

    The NWA board of directors were so furious with Jake Roberts actions that (as it was later revealed) they paid Michael Hayes and NWA National Heavyweight Champion Terry Gordy, who were two signed NWA talents, to interfere in the championship match with Sid Vicious, not only costing Roberts his chance to win the NWA World Title, but it also cost Sid Vicious his shot to become an undisputed champion as well.

    The unsatisfactory results of the match caused a major backlash against not only the NWA for doing what they did, but also the WWF for forcing Jake Roberts to defend his championship when it was obviously to his disadvantage. The WWF and NWA threatened legal action against one another, however, while all of this was happening on the surface, a ground swell of unhappiness started to rise with contracted wrestlers in not only the World Wrestling Federation and the National Wrestling Alliance, but also within the AWA, WCCW and the Universal Wrestling Federation. The general feeling was that if these two giant promotions would do this to a major name in the world of professional wrestling, then anyone can be a target. This mindset caused the wrestlers to unionize for the first time in history to protect themselves against something like this ever happening in the future again. Due to the newly formed wrestling union, the WWF & NWA board of directors lost most of their power.

    As a result, all championship matches and rankings would be controlled by the new Championship Committee which consisted of retired wrestlers such as Harley Race, Ken Patera, Gorilla Monsoon & Jesse Ventura among others. This caused a major re-alignment of how the championships were tiered. The new rules and re-tiering was a follows:

    ‘’The NWA, WWF & UWF World Singles & Tag Team Championships would be seen as equal to each other and will only be defended during Pay-Per-Views. Before trying to claim another world title, said champion would have to have at least three successful title defenses before fighting for a second world championship. This process must be repeated in order to claim the third world title before anyone can claim to be the undisputed world champion. The only exception to this rule is if one individual already holds two world titles and the opponent holds the third, this will be the only time that all three world titles will be defended at the same time. Any other wrestler trying to become undisputed champion must be ranked number one in all three divisions, otherwise, only one championship will be defended at a time.

    The WWF Intercontinental, NWA National & NWA National Tag Team Championships will be considered to be the second rung to the top of the ladder as far as championships are concerned. Said titles can be defended in concert with other single or tag championships unless said person or persons win the world title moniker, then the championship must be vacated within 15 days.

    The Television, United States & United States Tag Team Championships will be considered to be the third rung to the top of the ladder as far as championships are concerned. Said titles can be defended in concert with other single or tag championships unless said person or persons win the world title moniker, then the championship must be vacated within 15 days.

    All other current or future championships will be considered regional unless otherwise amended by the championship committee.’’
    The best part about the 2K forums is that people here never let common sense or reasoning get in the way of a good argument.

    (This tournament took place in Year 16, the tournament started in week 1 of January and concluded in week 4 of April of the same year. The tournament was christened “Tournament of Champions” and consisted of every champion in every wrestling promotion going at that time. The singles and tag tournament was to crown a true undisputed world champion as fans (myself) were clamoring for this for years. After this tournament I started to consolidate the titles more like I was doing with my NXT/ROH promotion as the amount of cut scenes I was getting were coming at a consistent rate and becoming more interesting to me than championship matches. Started to incorporate more of the clone characters like Diesel & Razor Ramon actively alongside Hall & Nash. And they do meet in my universe eventually.)

    Original Layout of Shows from Year 15 onward in Universe Mode

    Monday: WWF
    Tuesday: AWF/ECW (Attitude Wrestling Federation instead of having 2 WWF's)
    Wednesday: New Gen Era Roster NXT/ROH
    Thursday: NWA/WCW
    Friday: AWA Old School wrestlers only

    The tournament rules were as follows:

    1. All champions were invited into the tournament.

    2. All champions entering the tournament were exempt from the ‘30 Day’ title defense rule while still participating in the tournament.

    3. Final inclusion into the tournament would end week 3 of December. However, should a title holder lose their championship any time after they are selected into the tournament, they will still be allowed to enter into the tournament and the new champion would be allowed to participate as well and assigned a spot accordingly.

    4. Rankings will be announced on Monday, week 4 of December at 10 AM. Simply holding a higher tier championship does not guarantee a higher seating in the tournament.

    5. The final cut off date for inclusion of the tournament will be Friday, week 4 of December at 11:59 PM. Any champion that has entered the tournament that loses their title after said cut off date will not be allowed into the tournament. The individual that wins a championship after said cut off date will not be allowed into the tournament either.

    6. All matches will have a maximum time of 15 minutes except for in the semi finals (20 minutes) and finals (No limit). All matches are for one fall under standard rules. Should time expire or a double disqualification happen, all participating parties in the match will be eliminated from the tournament.

    7. The winner will be awarded a new championship belt and will be crowned the undisputed world champion. This championship is in control of the Championship Committee and the champion MUST DEFEND when called upon to do so, but can be defended in concert with other championships.


    Rankings were based off of number of weeks as champion, the prestige of the championship & win/loss rating in an eight month span. The participating members and rankings in the singles tournament are:

    1. WWF World Heavyweight Champion: Bad News Brown. He has held on to the championship for the past six months. Each time coming up the victor in the match. Due to the wrestling Union Rules of only wrestling during pay-per-views as world champion, Bad News’ Win/loss record is 6 to 0 in that time span. His full eight month record is 12 – 1.

    2. NXT/ROH Heavyweight Champion: Keiji Mutoh. NXT/ROH is not part of the Wrestling Union and does not have their own dedicated Pay Per View. However, Keiji has been defending his championship on nearly a weekly basis. Due to this & the fact that he’s been champion for over two years, as well as his record, he has attained the number two spot in the tournament. His full eight month record is 24 – 0.

    3. NWA & UWF World Television Champion: Big Bubba Rogers. Despite recently losing the UWF World Championship, Big Bubba’s dominance shows in his rank in this tournament. He has held both NWA & UWF TV Championships for almost a full year now and had held the UWF World Title for almost the same amount of time. His full eight month record is 20 – 1.

    4. ECW Heavyweight Champion: Sid Vicious. Of all the singles champions in the tournament, Vicious has held on to his championship the second longest at 61 weeks. However, his win/loss record during that time is spotty at best. His time as champion alone pushed him above everyone else left. His full eight month record is 16 – 4.

    5. WWF Intercontinental Champion: Macho Man Randy Savage. Although being a former WWF World Champion within the past eight months, his recent losses by disqualification and via count out hurt Savage’s ranking. His full eight month record is 12 – 6.

    6. NWA National Champion: Michael P.S. Hayes. Despite his early losses and losing the NWA World title, Hayes has done enough to be ranked where he is currently. His full eight month record is 10 – 10.

    7. NWA World Heavyweight Champion: Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts. His recent win & defense of the NWA World Championship has shot Roberts up the rankings. This is his first championship in over two years. His full eight month record is 20 – 2.

    8. AWF Heavyweight Champion: The Undertaker. Even though Taker has regained the AWF Championship, trading the belt back and fourth to Steve Austin hurt his ranking in the process. His full eight month record is 11 – 4.

    9. NXT/ROH Television Champion: CM Punk. Punk has held on to the Television championship longer than anyone else in NXT/ROH. Despite not losing the championship, his losses to Mutoh caused him to slip in the rankings. He has yet to lose to anyone else in NXT/ROH and is noted in the rankings. His full eight month record is 17 – 5.

    10. NWA United States Champion: King Kong Bundy. Since regaining the US title, Bundy has decided to keep it by any means necessary. His losses by disqualification & count out hurt his ranking. His full eight month record is 14 – 5.

    11. Former AWF Champion: Stone Cold Steve Austin. Needless to say, Austin recently losing the AWF Championship again hurt his ranking. His full eight month record is 8 – 5.

    12. AWF Intercontinental Champion: Kurt Angle. He has held the championship for well over a year, however, his losses in non title matches hurt his rankings. His full eight month record is 6 – 7.

    13. Texas Heavyweight Champion: Terry Gordy. Before Gordy won the Texas title, the championship was not coveted. Since winning it over three years ago, he has single-handedly made the championship mean something. Even losing the title twice to Dusty Rhodes did not hurt him in our rankings. His full eight month record is 17 – 6.

    14. WCW Heavyweight Champion: Scott Hall. Hall is in this tournament by the luck of the stars aligning perfectly. His win/loss record is the worst of anyone in the tournament. However his length of reign has pushed him ahead of the remaining champions. His full eight month record is 2 – 6.

    15. AWA Heavyweight Champion: Super Star Billy Graham. Since defeating Harley Race a few months ago, Super Star has been as he promised, a fighting champion as he has defended the AWA title every week since winning it. His full eight month record is 13 – 8.

    16. ECW Television Champion: Gangrel. Since leaving NXT/ROH and joining ECW, Gangrel has been undefeated and has since won the ECW TV title. His win/loss record before joining however is something left to be desired. His full eight month record is 14 – 14.


    Excluded:
    Western States Champion: Terry Funk & former champion Ricky Steamboat.
    WCW United States Champion: The Rock & former champion Chris Jericho.
    UWF World Heavyweight Champion: Kerry Von Erich, former champion Big Bubba Rogers still included in the tournament due to still possessing a separate championship.

    Their rankings if they made the tournament:
    Terry Funk - 13
    Ricky Steamboat – 16
    The Rock - 7
    Chris Jericho – 5
    Kerry Von Erich - 3






    The Participating members in the tag tournament are:

    1. NXT/ROH Tag Team Champions: The Synnics (Bane & Riot). They have only lost five times in seven years and are half way in to their fifth year as tag champions. Many believe they are the uncrowned undisputed champions. Their full eight month record is 24 – 0

    2. WCW & AWF Tag Team Champions: Team 3-D (Bubba Ray & D-Von Dudley). Holding the WCW & AWF Tag Championships for the past three months is an impressive feat in a heavy tag scene. Their full eight month record is 7 – 2.

    3. WWF World Tag Team Champions: Damned Nation (Kane & Abyss). Tied for second in points with Team 3-D, however Team 3-D holding two tag championships simultaneously gave them the nudge. Their full eight month record is 7 – 1.

    4. AWA Tag Team Champions: The Road Warriors (Hawk & Animal). They have held multiple titles in the past fifteen years, however, the rankings only go back eight months and not being champion in six of those months hurt them. Their full eight month record is 12 – 5.

    5. NWA World Tag Team Champions: New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg & Billy Gunn). If they would’ve won the NWA tag titles eight months ago, they would’ve been ranked number one. Being they are only two month into their reign since joining the NWA hurts them. Their full eight month record is 12 – 0.

    6. National Tag Team Champions: Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard. Legendary tag team. Held multiple world tag titles. Un-legendary eight month record. Their full eight month record is 6 – 7.

    7. United States Tag Team Champions: Harlem Heat (Booker T & Stevie Ray). They just beat out The Harris Twins a few weeks ago to win the tag belts to join the tournament. If hindsight is 20/20, they are not the same team they used to be. Their full eight month record is 10 – 10.


    Due to the odd number pairing in the tag team division, the number 1 ranked team will get a bye in the first round.
