The New Extreme Wrestling Television (NEWT) Federation is the country’s largest wrestling federation. Each week, hundreds of thousands of people tune in to see the newest drama, rivalries and battles ensue within the squared circle, as giant beefed up men battle it out for that week’s title belt. Unbeknownst to the viewers though, the real entertainment occurs outside the ring.
Danny Halo, the Booker for NEWT, is able to decide who hates who and who is going to win this weeks match, but one thing he can’t handle is the personalities of those people beyond their wrestling personas. Each day he is balancing someone else’s ego, someone else’s problem and someone else’s quarms. Things of course got worse when his boss’ ex-wife takes over half of NEWT.
But then again, things like that occur everyday on Powerslam
Powerslam is a half hour show revolving around the backstage world at one of the countries largest Wrestling Federations. While millions of viewers invest in the personalities of the big name wrestlers, they don’t realize that out of the ring those big name wrestlers are just regular Joe’s doing their jobs. Their personality quirks, relationships, and personal objectives play out backstage completely demystifying their wrestling personas.
The tough Villain is a big softy. The promiscuous Diva is really a homemaker who bakes cookies for the other wrestlers. The Referee, who controls the ring, is really clueless to everything occurring around him. Unlike, the fantasy world they present daily, the cast of the NEW Federation function as a cohesive group, a quirky group, but a cohesive one.
