[OOC: After posting this, didn't realise this is an actual company in the UK, but lets pretend they don't exist....]
In September 2015 Destination America chose to not renew the contract with TNA Wrestling essentially leaving TNA without any programming in homes. This caused a great deal of stress to the roster who were all given restructured priority pay per appearance deals and ability to work anywhere they would like.
The previous #2 company had slipped now the ranks. Destination America was still keeping RoH onscreen and this put more eyeballs on RoH than TNA. Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling also had a TV deal and was starting to turn heads as the months rolled on even though attendance figures were low.
At the end of the year Dixie Carter took a look at TNA Wrestling and decided that this was it and this was the end. TNA Wrestling was listed for sale at $5,000,000. There was no interested but Dixie still had to keep paying wages.
One day Dixie was sat with her head in her hands as the phone rang. As she picked it up she heard a familiar voice of Paul Heyman. Heyman said he heard TNA Wrestling was up for sale but said Dixie had massively over-priced the brand and in reality it was worth only $1,000,000. After a week of negotiations, TNA Wrestling was sold to Heyman for $1,000,000 with Dixie Carter still allowed to work for TNA in the marketing department.
As Heyman evaluated the mess he had just bought, he knew that TNA needed a massive overhaul. It needed a new name to reduce any stigma attached and needed a whole fresh outlook and do something different to what’s currently out there.
And so it was born EXTREME WORLD WRESTLING. And With EWW born meant new championships were needed!
EWW World Heavyweight Championship
EWW International Championship
EWW World Tag Team Championships
EWW Jr. Championship
EWW Jr. Tag Team Championships
EWW Knockouts Championship
Next order of business for Heyman was deciding how the shows would operate going forward. Heyman decided that EWW will do three huge tours which all cumulate in a PPV. The tours will be available on YouTube to give fans the build they need for the PPV. Heyman also looked at how Impact 365 worked and decided to do something similar but will allow the roster to cut promos to further enhance feuds.
