Beginning in October of 1985, this mod offers you the chance to pick up at a time when the UK has THREE promotions on television (fair enough, one was in Wales). You also have various US promotions on Screensport, most US promotions with some form of television deal and...more importantly I hear you all say...the NWA in a relatively healthy state. Oh, alright, the important part is really WWF post-Wrestlemania I and the fact the WCCW, Mid-South and AWA could all join Jim Crockett Promotions in battling with the WWF juggernaut.

The release itself utilises the 1987 TGA mod released by Genadi as it's base, whilst pulling from work I've done for various mods on the UK & Europe, Alv's 1980 mod and Justtxyank's Rising Storms with a whole raft of additions on top of all that. So, thanks goes out to my Mod Squad colleagues for the data, chat, allowing me to collaborate with them, the discussion and their tolerance levels.

I've no doubt the release will raise issues, debate and discussion. At times I've made a call on what to do with a worker, his name and/or alter egos. With the UWF, I've of course started them as Mid-South and narratives will change the name and logos. The title belts begin as the UWF ones as obviously you can't set belts to retire or become live in game.

I've added a few promotions, tried my best with the TV deals (quite possible AWA and/or WWF have too many affiliates, though I've no doubt some may drop off), given the NWA as wide a group of members as possible and trawled Screensport indents and footage to try to understand exactly how many promotions were on there. There's some new logos in there, some workers will have edited bios and others will no doubt have ones that mention events post-85. Title histories have been edited, does my head in though that you can't delete them from within the title screen so I'll have missed some out of sheer monotony.

You will of course no doubt get to use Gino...ohhhhhhhh Gino...beyond his death and perhaps Mike Von Erich will make a full recovery. Just some of the joys to uncover as you progress from the start of October 1985 onwards.

Thanks to all my colleagues on the Mod Squad for basically letting me pilfer from them. TGA, set in 1987, was the base for this mod.
