BACKGROUND This is a concept that was hot to trot back on MP last year. After weeks of laborious work, there were 7/8 guys ready to go and then the plug was pulled on MP and it never came to fruition on this site. I'm bringing it back with the belief that the interest and creativity is still here in these parts. Prove me right. WHAT IS IT Basically the IBL is a modern day version of what the NWA once was back before wrestling was monopolized by the WWF. In this alternate universe every mainstream promotion has collapsed which means every wrestler in North America is out of contract and essentially free agents. The IBL was founded and financially backed by a mysterious Board of Directors who are given the chance to promoters to form their own promotion under the IBL banner with the guarantee of a weekly TV deal and monthly PPV deal. IBL promotions are under no threat of competition from outside promotions, however, they will be competing with other IBL promotions in a war of ratings, pride, success and recognition. Who knows? Two promotions could become allies, two promotions could go at each others throats until one is deemed superior or a promoter could isolate himself from the rest of the IBL promotions to fully ensure his promotion is the highest-rated, most-watched promotion on the IBL Network. This truly is a revolution and resurrection of the beautiful sport we all love. HOW IT WORKS Everyone that signs up fills out the following application form; Promotion Name: Simple the name of your promotion Day of Show: The day on which you wish your weekly show to air Name of Weekly Show: AKA RAW or Impact etc. Authority Figure and Title: Who makes the decisions on-air on your show and what their title is e.g Brad Maddox, General Manager or Jim Cornette, Director of Authority Commentary Team*: Maximum of two and no current wrestlers Backstage Interviewer*: Maximum of one and no current wrestlers Championships: Minimum of 3 including Heavyweight (or alternative) and Tag (or alternative) and a maximum of 5 Show Color*: The color which represents your show e.g Red for RAW, Yellow for NXT etc. HQ: This is basically your promotions home turf e.g Orlando, Florida for TNA or Stamford, Connecticut for WWE *not mandatory Once you have applied, send me a Personal Message with a list of wrestlers you'd like to draft IN THE ORDER YOU WOULD DRAFT THEM YOURSELF. Examples below; Person A would like Daniel Bryan, Austin Aries and Samoa Joe. If he had to make a choice the wrestler he wants the most would be Aries and the person he wants the least is Bryan. Therefore he would mail me in this format; 1. Austin Aries 2. Samoa Joe 3. Daniel Bryan There is a roster limit of 35 active wrestlers/divas. Undoubtedly people are going to want the same wrestlers in certain circumstances and you will not be guaranteed any wrestler no matter how high you may place them (but generally people get 3-4 of the Main Eventers they want) so the list is infinite. This means you can send me a list with 350 wrestlers on it if you wish to ensure you fill all 35 roster slots. As soon as I run out of names on your list, you will be void from the draft until it has finished. Then and only then you can draft from remaining not taken talents. To ensure that no one applicant is left with a very minimal roster before the open draft there is a rule that your list MUST CONTAIN A MINIMUM OF 75 TALENTS. There was major interest in this project the last time I organized it and I had one successful run with a project of this type over four years ago. I haven't been able to find somewhere to duplicate the success, here's hoping I've finally found a place to restore this project.
