Default Even the gods are mortal [TIER-1, CVerse]


The Nagoya sky was angry. As angry as Kanie Komine. For seventeen years, he had helmed Japan’s most successful professional wrestling organization. He had been a ruthless businessman. He had kept an iron grip on Burning Hammer of the Wrestling Gods. It had attracted criticism. He had not been a popular man, but he had been successful. He had turned Burning Hammer into a powerhouse of a company -- as financially successful as it had ever had. He had done that. He thought he had the loyalty of his people, but he had been wrong. Kikkawa had not been a loyal soldier. Hadn’t Komine given him everything? Provided him an opportunity to become a star? To become the most well regarded heavyweight in Japanese pro wrestling history? The West could have their Sam Strongs and Rocky Goldens and Nicky Champions and Jack Bruces. Komine had built Kikkawa into a mythic figure. A living embodiment of Hachiman. Talent be damned. It was Komine’s vision that had built Kikkawa into something out of Shinto. Kikkawa left him. Started a group to oppose him. His group had failed, but it had let Tetsuzan Kaneko betray him. Kaneko was supposed to be loyal. Komine had given him his start. He had given him an opportunity and then Kaneko turned into a Japanese Brutus. He had stabbed his Caesar in the back. He had organized a coup and left Komine a man on the outside.

Lightning flashed through the sky and was joined by a thunderclap that shook the skyscraper as Kaneie stared out at the Sea of Japan. The water was choppy. Only the bravest of fisherman would launch in these conditions. What a fitting metaphor for wrestling in Japan. Burning Hammer was still king. Pride Glory Honor Wrestling was firmly entrenched as the number two with its reliance on traditional style. World Level Wrestling was a surprising number three -- leading the charge of the Modern Japan Movement. Kaneie hated them all, but he knew they were all competing for what he wanted -- to be at the top again.

He had been out of wrestling since 2009 when Kaneko convinced the Burning Hammer board of directors to outst him. Kaneko had struck a deal with the traitor Kikkawa to return, but only if Kaneie was gone. The Board of Directors wanted the greatest heavyweight of all time back, so Komine Kaneie was shown the door. No one wanted to touch Kaneie. He had built an empire on the backs of the other companies and that had turned him into an enemy of all. Until July of 2015.

Komine took a slow sip of his sake. It was late and he could afford a private drink as he reflected on that first meeting. He was called to Tokyo by the NARUTO company -- one of the leading video game companies in the world. They had recently lost the Burning Hammer license to an upstart company and Komine had assumed they wanted to talk to him about creating a brand new intellectual property. He was mistaken. When he arrived, he realized his meeting was with Ietsuna Hisamatsu and Meiji Nishimura. The two executives behind the ultra-successful ALPHA-1 MMA group. A group that was consistently jockeying for supremacy in that world -- battling the US-based GAMMA. Komine was familiar with each man, but could not call either friends or allies, but they had a proposition.

They wanted to get into the wrestling business. They wanted a company that was inspired by MMA but that they could work to create stars -- all leading to wanting to be able to build a new property they could market in video games. They had a name -- and they had some people they had recruited to exclusive contracts. People that Komine knew. People that Kikkawa knew. People that had been with INSPIRE or had legit MMA backgrounds.

Arjen Van Den Leyne. Buddy Garner. Claudio Burdisso. Li Bingci. Mike Watson. Mohamed El Yaaggoudi. Oleg Dorosklov. Raul Hughes. Wael Hossam. Komine knew these men. He knew their names and their work. Most had worked for Kikkawa. Only Buddy had not. Most had not wrestled in years, but they had the legit background that ALPHA-1 wanted. Hisamatsu and Nishimura were clear. They did not want a product that felt like pro wrestling. They wanted a product that felt real, to the core. They didn’t want a bunch of interview segments or bad guys and good guys. They wanted men, grown men, simulating realistic combat. They wanted Komine to head the operation. They wanted him to be the brains.

Komine had smiled in that meeting. It was a way back into wrestling. It was a way to prove his skill once again. He could take the idea that Kikkawa couldn’t succeed with -- and he could slay the gods by taking their hammer from them. He could get his revenge and cement his place as the greatest leader in Japanese wrestling history. He took another sip from his sake. He had had one demand. He wanted Marat Khoklov. He wanted the giant that had knocked out Kikkawa. Hisamatsu and Nishimura agreed to fund Marat’s contract. Komine had a set of expectations. He needed to deliver, but he also had freedom to build his roster.


The project was called TIER-1. It would feature a hard weight split. The Heavyweight and Lightweight divisions. Middleweight and higher competed in heavyweight, lightweight and under in Lightweight. No tag team wrestling. No stupid gimmick matches. No weapons. No hardcore. Men competing to win. Komine was at the helm once again, steering a ship into the stormy waters. Only a fool would believe he could be successful in the landscape. Or a genius. Komine would prove he was the latter. He had to prove he was the later. Even the gods were mortal, and Kanie Komine was in the mood to slay some gods.

TIER 1 is a wrestling company that is actually an off-shoot of one of the most respected shoot-fight organisations in Japan, ALPHA-1, and offers a hybrid mix of wrestling and stiff MMA-style action. It's an unusual mix, seeing head-dropping suplexes, running dives to the outside, and violently stiff strikes all stuck together in one environment, but it's certainly watchable, and not without marketability.
Style: MMA Off Shoot
Based in: Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Chubu, Japan
CEO & Match Maker [User Character]: Kaneie Komine

For Immediate Release - The NARUTO Company is proud to announce the formation of TIER-1. TIER-1 is NARUTO's first foray into the professional wrestling space. Banking on years of experience promoting mixed martial arts through the ALPHA-1 organization, NARUTO hopes to become the world-wide leader in hard-hitting professional wrestling action. The organization will be helmed by Kaneie Komine, the former CEO of the Burning Hammer of the Wrestling Gods organization.

TIER-1 will present a product that is not found anywhere else in the world. With a strong emphasis on competition, matches will end via pinfall, submission, or knock out. They can also end in a time limit draw. Any use of an illegal object will result in an immediate suspension and investigation into potential termination. Any outside interference will result in the same. TIER-1 wants to build an atmosphere where professionals are allowed to prove who is the best.

TIER-1 will make it's debut Thursday, Week 3 of January 2016 with a lineup that promises to crown its two division champions in a double main event. The World Heavyweight Championship will be decided as two of the hardest hitting men in the heavyweight division go toe-to-toe for the first time in their careers. The number one ranked heavyweight, Marat Khoklov will go head to head with the number two ranked heavyweight, Raul Hughes!



The Last Czar
Marat Khoklov
Age: 40 [11 years pro]
Size: Ripped Giant
Record: 0-0-0
Finishing moves:
Moscow Lariat
Russian Giant Bear Hug
Russian Legend Powerbomb

Overview:
The Russian giant Marat Khoklov is undoubtedly the most physically intimidating wrestler of all time, a man whose size, freakish power, and ripped physique redefine the term "monster heel". He first became famous when he knocked out the legendary Tadiyuki Kikkawa in a star-making victory that made him an overnight cultural mega-star in Japan. From there he headed to SWF, snagging a massively lucrative contract, and had seven good years. He quit SWF in 2015 in order to sign a one-match deal with BHOTWG for an astronomical sum of money - the match saw him lose to Kikkawa but set a new attendance record for the promotion in the process. He hasn't been seen since that match and it was only with the formation of TIER-1 that the giant announced he would be returning to professional wrestling. With his massive hands, his knockout power is something to be feared.

Career Highlights:
King of Fighters




The Demolition Expert
Raul Hughes
Age: 50 [12 years pro]
Size: Ripped Heavyweight
Record: 0-0-0
Finishing moves:
Demolition Left Hook

Overview:
"The Demolition Expert" Raul Hughes is a legend in MMA circles, a fighter whose incredible knock out punching power made him a star and championship-calibre competitor in both North America and Japan. After retiring from MMA he went ahead and made world news when he signed as a pro wrestler for BHOTWG in 2003. Hughes had a great career with BHOTWG, headlining many events and even winning the prestigious world title (a move that did not go down well with the more traditionally-minded wrestling observers). He was one of the founding members of INSPIRE in 2006 and had a great couple of years with them too. He retired in February 2009 immediately after losing the King Of Fighters title, citing a desire to have a final few MMA bouts. He was enticed into a return to professional wrestling with the formation of TIER-1. With his experience as both a dominate competitor in Mixed Martial Arts and Professional Wrestling, Raul Hughes could be a major force in the heavyweight division, even at his advanced age.

Career Highlights:
Burning World Championship
King of Fighters



Our second main event of the evening will determine who will be the first World Lightweight Champion and features two supremely talented, technically minded grapplers. The Puerto Rican "Tap Out Artist" Billy Russell makes his return to Japan as he goes head to head with the returning-to-wrestling Olympian Li Bingci.



The Tap Out Artist
Billy Russell
Age: 41 [9 years pro]
Size: Toned Lightweight
Record: 0-0-0
Finishing moves:
Grounded Knee Fury
Twisting Arm Lock
Knee Bar

Overview:
"The Tap Out Artist" Billy Russell is a talented grappler from Puerto Rico who has an extensive background in professional Mixed Martial Arts; the biggest fight of his MMA career was in 2001 when he reached the quarter finals of the major tournament of the year, losing to future wrestling star Buddy Garner. He joined the new Japanese promotion INSPIRE in 2006 and became one of the success stories of the company, rising up the card and winning several big matches. The promotion closed in 2009, and Russell went on to sign with his home-town promotion of FCW in late 2010; he became Puerto Rican champion in 2012 and is now one of the company's biggest draws. With the formation of TIER-1, Russell was eager to agree to a multi-fight deal to return to Japan. He will continue to wrestle for FCW in Puerto Rico.

Career Highlights:
FCW Puerto Rican Championship





Li Bingci
Age: 35 [11 years pro]
Size: Toned Lightweight
Record: 0-0-0
Finishing moves:
Choke Hold

Overview:
Li Bingci was an Olympic silver medal winner for China in freestyle wrestling at the 2004 Olympic Games. He trained, unsigned, with Japan's Burning Hammer Of The Wrestling Gods throughout 2005, but was snapped up by their rivals INSPIRE in 2006 to capitalise on his legitimate fighting background. He lasted just two years before quitting the sport, having never fully gotten to grips with how punishing the schedule could be. He competed again at the 2012 Games, but this time came home with a bronze. After an eight-year hiatus from the sport of professional wrestling, Bingci was enticed to return by TIER-1 and hopes to find the success he didn't find in his first go round.

Career Highlights:
Olympic Silver Medal -- Freestyle Wrestling
Olympic Bronze Medal -- Freestyle Wrestling
