Hey everyone...

Every year or so, give or take a month or two, we in Empire Pro Wrestling do a little event we call King of the Cage: Tag Team Edition.

The name comes from our classic King of the Cage tournament, which traditionally saw everyone in the fed compete in a single elimination cage match tournament to crown the King of the Cage. This winner, assuming he was not already the World Champion, would then face the World Champion for the World Title at the following "Pay-Per-View" show.

Due to what I perceived as a general lack of tag team wrestling in e-fedding combined with my love for tag team wrestling in general, several years back I decided to adapt this concept to tag teams, with the added stipulation that any singles wrestler who signs up would be paired with another wrestler in a "Lethal Lottery" manner. Existing complete teams were allowed to sign up as a team and not be split up. All pairing were to be completely random. I literally pulled the names from a hat. The EPW World Tag Team Champions were automatically entered, and every match they competed in would be for the titles, with the only caveat being, while you could advance in the tournament via escaping the cage, pinfall, or submission, you could only win the Tag Team Titles via pinfall or submission. The winners, too, would be crowned EPW Kings of the Cage and will headline the following PPV in a match against the EPW World Champions for the belts, assuming they are not already the champs. If they are, they will defend against the number one contenders in the main event of the PPV.

Right now, we are roleplaying for our latest PPV event, Black Dawn. Beginning the first EPW Aggression show after Black Dawn, we will begin EPW King of the Cage: Tag Team Edition 2012.

I'm opening up signups right here in this thread for ANYONE AND EVERYONE who is interested in participating.

There is no obligation to join EPW once your run in the tournament is over, and I will not give special treatment to anyone, whether they are already in EPW or not. However, the hope is that you enjoy your experience so much that you decide to stick around and either help the EPW Tag Team scene continue to grow or move into the singles scene. Either way, our hope is that you enjoy yourself and stay on board.

SO - that said, if you are interested, sign up below.

At this point all I need from you is the following:

- Handler name:

- Character(s) name:

When it comes closer to time to start this up, I'll request full bios and so on. But for now, this will suffice.

Thanks!

- Dave Brunk, EPW Owner

Ford said it would be a good idea to have the live drawing of the lethal lottery teams on an EFG broadcast when you get to that point.

WHich would be cool!

And I may regret this, but add Team Viagra to the proceedings. That's High Flyer and Tony Davis. And if they can't be rehired cause they were fired, consider changing their bio names to Jack Harmen and Powerhouse.

Not at all. I actually opened this up early, since Black Dawn will have to be posted before we start. We're in matchwriting for it right now.

Here's a quick look at the signups in this thread so far.

KEEP IN MIND: If you are already in EPW and don't sign up, I'd like to be honest, I'm probably throwing you into the lethal lottery anyway. Bottom line is, this is what we're doing next cycle. If you insist on not being part of the tourney, that's fine, but the emphasis will undeniably be on this tournament and the fallout from each round.

The list:

Singles

Alceo Dentari

Oblivion

Teddy Alexander

Sam Turner, Jr.

Malcolm Joseph-Jones

Impulse (c)

The First (c)

Boogie Smallz

Paladin (Kendall Codine Jr.)

Aaron Jones

Wasn't sure if this was the thread for everyone or if you'd specifically be opening up the EPW thread after Black Dawn. Regardless, the current (and hopefully future) EPW Intercontinental Champion, Impulse, is in.

EPW handlers can sign up here, and I also thought I'd do an "internal" post on the EPW forums once Black Dawn "airs", but either spot will do, really.

I probably will automatically sign most people up, since they aren't actively signing up, but yeah, officially signing up is preferable.

If you need more singles talent to fill up the drawing for teams...I can provide more.

Hope everything is going well with your wife and family.

Okay, sorry to be this kind of ass-hat, but I need to change my team... again.

Got word from Levinson, so Rezin will tag up with Anarky. Not sure if we've got a name yet, so I'll get back to you on that.

You should handle StrawBot. And he should be a team to himself. And his RPs should be you sounding like a robot, like when you called in to EFG.

While we're writing Black Dawn, if you're an EPW guy, you can officially put your name in the hat for King of the Cage: Tag Edition in this thread. Above, you'll see the names of people who are officially signed up so far.

Keep in mind, this will be the absolute focus in the fed after Black Dawn in EPW.

Naturally, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I reckon he would have ended up in the tournament regardless, but you can throw Aaron Jones into the fray.

The threads have been merged and the full current list is in the post preceding this one.

Here's how the set-up will work:

- 24 teams

- Three brackets of eight teams

- The Final will be a triple threat match

- All matches will be in a cage

- Win by pin, submission or cage escape. If the match is a World Tag Team Title Match (IE, the champs are your opponent), you can only win the titles by pin or submission. A cage escape wins the match, but not the titles

- The first round will consist of 12 matches. The first six will be on Aggression 68. The second six will be on Aggression 69. The full second round will be on Aggression 70. The full third round will be on Aggression 71, and the finals will be on Aggression 72 for the right to main event the PPV.


I will be drawing the lethal lottery pairings tonight, as well as the bracket pairings and sending the information to Ford and to Stanton for reveal on the Thursday night podcast.

The current plan is to begin roleplay next Monday, August 20th.
