I actually had quite a sweeping story arc plotted out leading to the "end" of Jonny and a true rise of Loris Arclale (my one true love)... also revisiting a plot line/idea that would have made Josh and B VERY PROUD...
Here are the notes:
MotM (My characters)Jonny VS Fictional Japanese Former Brother in Law
The match would be given to Jonny as a result of Jonny's former brother in law twisting his during an open sequence. "Frustrated", Jonny gets on the mic to apologize, but that he would not accept the victory. His brother in Law is an honorable man and he would not want to blemish his record. "I will not accept this victory. You are honorable an..."
He would be cut off by the arrival of THE IMPERIUM
Their leader would challenge Jonny to a contest, which Jonny would hesitantly accept... Jonny would be dispatched of with swift, and unbending justice. The loss, as they tended to do with Jonny, would begin his decent into becoming a cruel and violent, holier-than-thou WHITE KNIGHT.(Insert Name for them Here) Squad in a Tag Team Ladder Match
We had thrown a bunch of ideas around. The titles were PROBABLY going on T-Rex and Arch Angel, with the Jacks replacing "Rogue N Riley" after Tom Quinn went missing. The JACKS seemed insistent on taking Omar and Zex out of the equation (and life) as they railed away at them at all costs with a focused, brutal onslaught. This eventually made the match Laz/LC vs ANARCHY, where the former champs would reclaim their belts.
AND THE FUTURE...
Without the yin to his yang, Riley started on a sociopathic tear, and along with the soulless Wailer, the tandem would declare war on Isaac Entragian (regardless of his outcome with Corazon). The idea was that Riley was here to clear the way for a Better Tomorrow and that the weak had to "die". Entragian was the shining example of failed rebellion, and he had to be drowned to give hope that SHOOT could be conquered. Entragian would, at some point, dismantle Wailer... Unfortunately, as he got closer to Riley, the JACKS would mysteriously involve themselves. (IMPORTANT TO NOTE: leading up this point, The JACKS would have possibly been a feud with Omar/Zex, who would, at some point, possibly have turned heel and accepted Jonny's offer for them to use the Beautiful People moniker... mysteriously, The JACKS onslaught on Omar/Zex would stop immediately after)
From here, Entragian would shift into a feud with JACK. Their numbers were, at times, overwhelming, but Isaac would get through them... until one JACK in particular, would get the better of him. This JACK was more brutal than the others. She/He also seemed to be able to counter every attack Entragian threw his way. The JACK would eventually be revealed as (
??) (name protected)
During this time, Jonny, under heavy advisement of his spiritual partner, PAUL JARVIS would be slipping into madness. His Project HERO organization would become a prop for his self serving desires, and an excuse to commit questionable acts of terror. They would begin recruiting... with PROJECT HERO "militia" men and women guarding locker rooms, patrolling the cooridoors, etc etc. Jonny would be in a short feud with Imperium, eventually getting the upper hand after the squad was attacked by JACK (several). This would lead to Imperium vs JACK (prior to Entragian vs JACK)
With Jarvis in his ear, Jonny would fixate on "irredeemable traits" of his "enemies" (who would weirdly be very decent human beings...) For example, instead of fighting the Scavengers, he LIVED by his words that they were not a REAL threat, that they were just obnoxious, spoiled children that only wanted attention... and instead focused on Christopher Davis, a man who had defeated Jarvis at MotM and would have had a segment with Jonny where they patched things up. Instead, Jonny would, somewhat senselessly, shame Davis until the two had a match in mid fall. Jonny, with a brutal assault, would defeat Davis, albeit with vulgar disregard for honor)
After this bout, Jonny would declare a new streak. He would win 11 bouts, and on the 11th, and final victory, would announce his claim for the SHOOT Project World Title.
Jonny set his sites on Entragian. He blamed Isaac for JACK and for the Scavengers gaining "power". (Jeremy would have finished his feud with (
?) by this point, though, depending on his MOTM outcome, may have been invovled in a world title feud around now so this part could have been different. This is based on an outcome where Isaac WON at MOTM and was guarenteed a title shot... HINT at Jonny's possible inside motives) Entragian NEEDED TO BANISHED FROM SHOOT if the company could ever "shine once more"
Riley and Wailer would be introducing new "fallen souls" (forgetten alt characters, weird gals/dudes from the past that never got much of a shot in SHOOT, etc etc) Riley would be making a very legitimate claim for the world title, claiming that a Better Tomorrow could only come with the firery destruction of Yesterday and Today. The SHOOT Project's highest honor had to be abolished. He HAD to have it so he could give it to the founder. (this would be the first time Riley mentioned having superiors)
Jonny and Entragian would be close to having their first match, but it would never happen. Jonny would come down to the ring, but Isaac would not. The Scavengers would swarm the ring and destroy Jonny as he has never been destroyed... (Including Paul Jarvis who was a Scavenger the entire time, leading a prayer over Jonny's body) Riley would stand over his body. "He's hurt... he's.... He's hurt real bad. We need a doctor. WE NEED A FUCKING DOCTOR"
At this time, Dr Loris Arclale, the mysterious man fired from SHOOT Project a year ago, would come out from the back... The crowd reaction would be "weird" to say the best. Arclale would explain the situation. That he had worked tirelessly to give power back to Man. That Man had become weak, that urge and instinct had been jailed in artificial, imaginary cages. "Jonny was a jailer... one of the worst, and his persuit is false. HIS DEFEAT, strangely, is the hope he tried to deny others" Jonny would be given an ultimatum... leave to the obscurity he had damned so many countless people, or lose the rest of what little world he had left"
Jonny would never be seen again.
Loris Arclale would announce his claim to "take SHOOT", but not for senseless power, but to use it, PRODUCTIVELY as no man had ever done before. To turn it into a training ground for Soliders fighting under the banner of the Society for a Better Tomorrow... An evolved humanity ready for the new perils of an ever more deadly world.
Loris wanted wrestlers/fighters because he believed they had the perfect base for what the world needed. The mind could be shaped, but the body had to be perfect. A soldier's body glistened. It was lean and beautiful. He knew his conquest would begin an awful war... but this was no story... this was no contained ideal. This was bigger than professional wrestling.
BUT Loris is a pacifist. He would not fight unless provoked. He's a doctor... Not a general.
At this point in the story, he would announce The Society's main Bennefactor/Investor, and the general...
From here, we would have worked within whatever current parameters had been set, but we wanted to create a story/world, other people could easily join/add to. We didn't want to make it "World title based" in order to avoid stepping on other toes of people involved. Valentine and Riley would have collided as Riley would be sort of forced back into a "Stooge" role he had grown to loathe. JACK would be revealed as a group of "truly destroyed men" who found power in being the horrible atrocities committed against them in a "previous life". They would be the "enemies" of The Society, (but the society believed in a balance of "Good and Evil" and that the chaos of Evil was necessary for GOOD to thrive... so they essentially manufacture their own evil for the sake of balance.... JACK was an essential member of the Society)
That was the basic set up, and from here, I don't know what would have happened. The plan was to have this happen sometime before Reckoning Day.
And yes... The Society would try and train/create super humans. BEAST AND PRIME FOR LIFE
How's everyone doing, btw?
