Note This is a fictional fed, where all characters are of my creation. The image bases used for wrestlers I found in the image pack for Grey Dog Softwares TEW 2005 from the cornellverse.White Rose Championship Wrestling is a wrestling organisation set up by wrestling fanatic and English entrepreneur, Simon Bedford. Simon Bedford, a huge wrestling fan, had an idea fior a weekly PPV modelled wrestling business. Bedford approached a number of businesses with his idea, offering a share of the business and prominent product placement in advertising on ring aprons, ringside, etc. in return for investment. With the buy in of several national UK businesses, Bedford approached the second largest digital TV provider in Virgin Media to carry the weekly PPVs and air exclusively on virgin Media. While the audience is substantially less than other digital TV providers, a number of 10000 PPV buys a week (at a cost of £4.99 each) would see the company at least break even. With an audience of 2million homes, thats roughly half a percent of the number of Virgin Media subscribers required to purchase the weekly PPV. Combined with an internet only show that lasts 30 minutes once per week to promote the product and increase interest in the weekly PPVs, Bedford has devised an innovative business plan that has seen a UK wrestling show return to the TV screens in the UK for the first time in 25 years.
The business is run out of Leeds, Yorkshire, England. The symbol of Yorkshire is the white rose, and being a proud Yorkshireman, Simon decided to call the business White Rose Championship Wrestling. The weekly PPV, airing on Friday nights is simply called Friday Night Wrestling. A roster has been built the best possible considering the money available and who was available at the time.
