Wrestling Timeline an ambitious project I had in mind for too long using Fire Pro Wrestling World.
What's this? Well, I will revisit the pro wrestling timeline, starting as far back as 1873 and simulate matches with Fire Pro Wrestling World.
I will share each match within my youtube channel and you can follow and comment the action here on XHF or youtube as you see fit, youtube would help out the channel grow honestly, but it doesn't really matter that much because all the fun I'm having is enough for me.
From the shooter style until today's standards a lot has changed and to recreate that in a game is a "herculean" task but the FPWW community made this possible with their work over the years. I'm able to port wrestlers from Fire Pro Returns and can work on them as I go, download content from the Steam Workshop, etc.
I will share my adventures on this topic. As I have time to do it, this is going to be quite a work for some years if not for my entire lifespan, but it's a hobby of mine and not an obligation.

In Chicago, IL, a wrestling match between Col. James H. McLaughlin and John McMahon for $1000 a side bet (some reports claim $4000), Collar & Elbow, best two out of three and for McMahon’s Canadian & Pacific Coast Collar & Elbow titles and whatever championships McLaughlin held takes place. The general opinion before the match was that McMahon would win and this belief found it’s backing in the betting pools at the rate of two to one in private bets with large odds on McMahon.

03-03-1881: William Muldoon vs Edwin Bibby in New York. The match was supposed to start at 3:30 PM but Muldoon was unable to get off patrol for the New York Police Department until 7:00 pm. When he arrived he quickly won two falls. He soon quit the police force to concentrate on wrestling full time.
