Hiya folks, I am back and already working on creations as we speak…I will be mainly focusing on the indies and talent from other companies as that has always been my ballpark - both male and female wrestlers who have snagged my interest.

Finally I have a home thread once again. I'm back, and I wasn't kidding about doing better than "last year" (2K19). I'm still on PS4, but make sure you have cross platform community creations enabled. "View and share creations with other platforms (2K account required)" Make sure that's turned on. I spent the last 3 years not playing any wrestling games. But I have been working on logos for my creations. This year I'm going for quality, not quantity, and I'm focusing on what I know best, which is WCW. I think you'll see it pays off. The names in bold are what they'll be called in-game. Let's get this party started. One thing you'll notice that I've never seen anyone else do, is what I do for the announce tables. WCW would usually have a flat black top on theirs and the front would have a logo. In these games, it's the opposite. Well what I do is switch them around, WCW style. You'll never see a bland or blank announce table on my Nitro-era WCW stuff. You can find all of my stuff with hashtags such as WarGreymon77 and WCW. WCW Monday Nitro TNT - updated, see later post Now I know... Why do I make Nitro every year? Because, folks. The Yukes Nitro arena in-game looks naked without my beloved "purple lights". SvR 2011 had them. Even WCW Nitro on PS1 had them! This is my masterpiece. It would be even better if not for a new problem that I didn't have in 2K19. You see that shine on the ring apron? That's necessary because it's the only way to make the ring apron black. It's not really a big deal, but if you hate it, just delete my black rectangle logo on the apron. Something to do with the lighting this year. I had to change the ring canvas logo to "concrete" to try to diminish the shine. It's always something, eh? But before I uploaded it, I wanted to see if I could make further improvements. We still can't add scaffold banners above the ring, but I tried something new this year. I actually got the idea while working on Thunder. Anyway, I hope you'll love this arena as much as I do. One more thing... Obviously I didn't draw the whole stage logo myself. I got permission to use it, and my WCW Saturday Night arena is a similar situation. Regardless, I did some heavy editing to it and made it my own. Enjoy! WCW Thunder Thunder is kind of a simplistic arena. While I like the blue, there's just too much gray for my taste. In fact, I wish they had put the blue Thunder logo on the ring or something. And it always bothered me that there is nary a WCW logo to be seen in the entire Thunder set! You might see Mean Gene with a WCW/nWo microphone, if he feels like working the taping (I noticed for 99% of Thunders I've watched on the Network so far, Tony Schiavone fills in for Gene). Anyway... I added a couple of things since last year. The hanging signs, a header with a set of lights--the screenshot doesn't show it, but you see the blue lights from it--higher quality logos for everything, and that "etching" ring mat logo. I wasn't familiar with it at first, but it got added on November 19, 1998. WCW Saturday Night updated, see later post You know, I'm already a bit hesitant about this one. I was hoping to upload two arenas at the same time today, but time... Anyway. I like the little purple lights that I added to left and right the "door". You can probably barely see them in this screenshot. No announce table in the "small studio" venue this year... I don't know if that's new. And due to the CAA lighting, you can't see it, but the ramp design does reach up to the stage light it's supposed to. Cons: I think I might've overstretched the floor mat logo around the ring a bit. A second screenshot I have shows it going out onto the arena floor a bit. I might fix it and do a reupload when I upload the Clash. Also, on the left side of the arena, (unpictured), the electronic billboard logo is upside down for some reason. And during the match if you go up the ramp, the ramp floor logos can glitch out. My hands are tied there. I wonder if 2K ran into this with their Halloween Havoc arena and just deleted it.
My 2K22 plans: I am planning to make edits of Mysterio (it'll have to be 97), Taker, Macho Man, maybe more. I will most likely make Hulk Hogan WCW, Madusa, and The Giant. I was never satisfied with Yukes recent versions anyway. I've been practicing and failing many times with a Day of Reckoning 2 Stacy Keibler face texture. Even if I succeed, I will not make her, due to DLC. But the thing I'm most excited about... is making the wacky unlockable characters from WCW Nitro. Maybe even Thunder, but we'll see. Greyling (the alien) Dweeble (the clown) Buzz (the bee... or maybe wasp) Santa Claws Ivan (the grizzly bear) Frankensteiner (maybe?) Will I be able to make Ivan fat enough? Ehhh we'll see.

But I have been working on logos for my creations. This year I'm going for quality, not quantity, and I'm focusing on what I know best, which is WCW. I think you'll see it pays off. I was originally going to start with a women's belt or maybe even the Television belt, but there's a glitch where the nameplate keeps coming back during entrances. So! I have decided to focus on the THREE flavors of Big Gold! The names in bold are what they'll be called in-game. All of these big golds are connected by a common story. Let's start with the big kahuna. You can find all of my stuff with hashtags such as WarGreymon77 and WCW. WCW World Heavyweight Championship (I forgot the all-caps when I uploaded it) My 2K19 belt was okay, but I wanted something better. I was searching online for the most authentic, WCW-accurate colors, designs, fonts, and 3D engraving. Nothing was ever quite right. Until I found this Top Rope Belts replica. I thought it was perfect for recreating the WCW world title belt. I thought for sure that it would be the best-looking in game. But I was used to the way previous games would make everything look super bright. It was too dark and 2D-looking until I changed the material. Now it's looking more like the real thing. This one lined up the best with the in-game plates. WCW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2001 I thought "That looks good but I wonder what an authentic all-gold WCW world title would like." Yes, the original belt was two-tone and had a big ol' bend in it. In the year 2000, the Big Gold Belt was getting a little worse for wear, so WCW hired a prop company called AFX Studios (same company that made stuff like Sting's Starrcade '97 attire and Mortis's costume) to cast the original belt and make the all-gold copies from that. Two copies were made for Ready to Rumble, and a copy each was made for Jeff Jarrett (M.I.A. since Bash at the Beach 2000), Kevin Nash (apparently sold?), Scott Steiner, and DDP. The original Big Gold Belt continued to be used regularly on TV however, until around January 2001 when Steiner allegedly switched the belt with his cast copy, and no one was the wiser. More on the OG Big Gold later in this post. So anyway, this is when the belt started to look a bit different on TV for obvious reasons--obvious in hindsight anyway. Supposedly, this belt went with Booker T to the WWE, which made yet another copy and put the "original" in storage. So the one you see during the Invasion is actually a copy of a copy. Visually, this belt works for 2001-2003. While looking for the most accurate plates to use, I came across something miraculous. DDP's ACTUAL AFX Studios belt. It doesn't get more accurate than that... well almost, as you'll see in belt number 3. So I used that belt to make this one. ORIGINAL BIG GOLD BELT Coming across DDP's belt is pretty cool, but what about. THE REAL DEAL HOLYFIELD!! There's no replica here, boys! At first I was just going to do this as a novelty. I didn't expect it to look this good. This is the ACTUAL, ORIGINAL Big Gold, as you may have seen the pictures surface on places like Twitter and Reddit. Apparently it eventually found its way into the lucky hands of one Conrad Thompson, the guy from all the wrestling podcasts who also married Ric Flair's other daughter. You can even see the dent at the top. Look at how freaking 3D this thing looks!! The wrestlers on the sideplates. I know the nameplate isn't lined up perfectly but man, this might be my new favorite belt! I even gave the belt a slight brown tinge as a hint to its original 1980s color. So that makes TWO ACTUAL, TV used belts. I think it feels pretty cool.
