Over the Top switches to bi-weekly

News & Rumors

Dearest friends, roster members, UWE family

As some of you may know, in November last year Nate, the original founder of Ultimate Wrestling Entertainment in 2004, had the idea to go for another run. Full of enthusiasm he rebuilt the site, did the appropriate world-building and started rounding up members both old and new.

Five old-timers, Nate, Brandon, Marc, Ed and myself all were back on board, determined to make this run one of the UWE’s best to date, and boy we sure gave it our all to make it so. A weekly show, called Over the Top, was going to be our flagship, and we’ve been running strong ever since, and continue to do so to this day thanks to a passionate community and our ability to put out a strong product week in, week out.

Unfortunately, real life happens, and some of us have had to wave UWE goodbye, at least for now, to pursue real life goals. Right now, our staff is temporarily down to 2 people, and without the addition of Gareth we would never be where we are at this point.

While we remain dedicated, the toll of putting up a weekly show while being understaffed has become big indeed, and I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s starting to affect both my personal and professional life. Being understaffed, we have had to put quite a few projects on hold, and while OTT continues to run on a weekly basis, the work that comes with it has forced us to sacrifice on other aspects that make a fed so great.

It is therefore that the UWE Staff has decided to turn Over the Top into a bi-weekly show to ease the pressure a bit as we seek to both add to the staff and make improvements on other fronts.  Stuff that we don’t have time for right now, as Over the Top continues to drain all of our time.

What does this mean, practically, for you, the roleplayer?

  • A bi-weekly show of Over the Top, which airs on Tuesdays
  • A soft deadline in place to keep you invested throughout every cycle, which will be placed exactly one week before the show
  • The ability to delve deeper into your characers as you have more time to write them
  • The ability to better explore multiple characters, as many of you are known to do, a fact we love and appreciate

We think that tjis (temporary) solution is the best thing for all parties involved going forward, as we can focus more on the product as a whole. We hope you understand, and that nobody is too diappointed by this decision. Yes, stories will take slightly longer to develop, but we can also give them more depth.

If anybody has any questions, our forums are open and any member of staff is more than willing to answer any questions you might have. Drop a PM, give us a shout in the shoutbox. We’re there, and we always will be.

Sincerely

UWE

Crunch talks!

News & Rumors

Contract renewals on the horizon?

In November last year, Ultimate Wrestling Entertainment relaunched, promising to once again dazzle the world with some of the business’ greatest athletes on display in their squared circle. Two of their very first signees were alumni Ruby and Lucilla Pegorino, one a fan favorite, the other a feared competitor and former champion.

 

Ruby (l.) and Lucilla (r.) have been tearing it up since UWE came back!

 

However, word has gotten out that they both signed a 10 month deal, due to expire in a couple of weeks. This has left many fans wondering if they will continue to see the duo on the UWE Network.

Ruby has already publicly stated her willingness to sign a new deal, but UWE management has been quiet regarding the matter. Lucilla has not publicly spoken up, but rumors are going around the UWE Studio’s that she is more than willing to ‘take all the money Lise (Fortier, UWE’s CEO -Ed.) throws her way for beating up people’.

While talks are supposed to kick off soon, there is no word yet on who will handle them. With Lara Pegorino’s future as General Manager still very much in doubt following her actions at Midsummer Massacre, UWE loses a strong negotiator who has a close and personal relationship with both these women.

It is expected that Lise Fortier will first try to settle the General Manager situation. Whether Lara Pegorino remains or not is still up in the air, but it will either be her or her successor handling these talks as the time comes.

News & Rumors

With Midsummer Massacre about a month away, the pieces are already starting to fall into place.

 

The majority of superstars are finding themselves occupied with the pay-per-view already. That leaves our Ultimate Wrestling Champion, James Calhoun, without a competitor for his championship.

 

With so many new faces arriving and surely plenty more to come, will anyone prove they have what it takes to face Calhoun for the Ultimate Wrestling Championship?

 

This is your pep talk. This is your warning. Make a name for yourself now rather than later. The people that you want to be watching you most certainly are. Impress them and your name might just add the prefix “Number One Contender.”
