Has anyone ever have seen two CRITICAL injuries on one PPV that are potentially career ending? It happened to me
In my Great Lakes Wrestling fed, my tag team champions the Biker Club (Tim Wolf & Rick Fury) defended their tag titles in a No DQ match against the Creepy Clown Posse (Creepy J & Violent C). The Biker Club is basically like the Bullet Club, but with a biker gimmick. The Creepy Clown Posse is a parody of the Insane Clown Posse, but far more violent.
Rick Fury was formerly the Baseball Fury, who is basically an icon in my GLW fed, having won the GLW Singles title 4 times before GLW's reboot. After the reboot, he was repackaged as a biker gimmick to team with Tim Wolf and Tiny Wolf. Fury won the tag team titles once with Tiny Wolf. Then when Tiny got injured in a title loss, Tim took Tiny's spot and helped Fury capture the tag titles a second time.
In the match against the Creepy Clown Posse, Fury was up against Creepy J, who was beating Fury like a government mule before hitting the reverse piledriver on Fury, resulting in a CRITICAL!
I had no choice but to write it up as a neck injury for Rick Fury as the spot looked very nasty. It is a potential career ender with the injury possibly similar to those that has sidelined other real life wrestlers such as Edge.
I hate to write out one of my best edits, but I do have to play by the rules when simming a canon match and a CRITICAL happens. I also wrote the angle that the reverse piledriver is now banned in GLW, which means that Creepy J will have to find a new finisher.
The second critical happened in a GLW Heavyweight Title match. GLW Champion Shawn Gibson was defending his title against the Minion. Gibson is a submission specialist while the Minion is just a power guy in a Minion costume. The Minion had won the GLW title previously before losing the belt to Shawn. So the Minion invoked his rematch clause.
The match was not even 6 minutes old when Shawn Gibson had the Minion in a cross knee breaker, which resulted in a CRITICAL, but somehow the match did not end.
The Minion rolled around in pain then got up limping. Another minute went by and I was pulling hard for the Minion - can he survive his knee injury to come back and win the title? Nope, it wasn't meant to be as Shawn Gibson was able to get the Minion to submit to a cross arm hold.
I had to write up the Minion's knee injury as a torn ACL which will put him out of action for about 9-12 months. To lose two main event players on my roster to major injuries in one night is a big blow to my roster. But I guess it does give the up and comers on my roster a chance to show what they can do and it also does give me motivation to make new edits to replace their spots on the roster. I guess there's a silver lining right there.
I was just surprised to see two major CRITICALS happen in one show, considering my CRITICAL level is only set to medium and I get a CRITICAL like once in a blue moon. Gotta love FPR - no CRITICALS for several shows, then twice in one night
