I was fifteen and before the days of the WWE Network, I actually became quite obsessed with watching back on the Attitude Era days that were before my time. I started watching the WWF in 2001, and the only bits of footage from 1998 I could find were of dodgy video playlists of RAWs from YouTube (which were always very quickly removed). And so, it was Christmas Day 2010 when I got 52 DVDs: every original copy of Monday Night RAW from 1998 burned to disc. I watched one random episode, and I quickly got inspired.
It started out with the idea that I would watch the corresponding dated RAW and work on it, posting it on the same date as the original airdate - just thirteen years on. Quickly that went out of the window, but I became extremely knowledgeable of the time period, the product, and just about everything to do with that era.
It was my finest work, I feel, throughout my past of fantasy booking. I recall one night where I booked and wrote a whole four weeks of television in one night. It was absolutely the prime of my writing days on these boards. Since then, I have struggled to maintain a long-term project that has spanned more than a few months in-story or even in real world time. My plans for 1999 are long gone, since original writing was in 2011 and it is now 2018. So everything is open to a clean slate.
I was approached in December about inducting WWFATTITUDE1998 into a Wrestling Sims Hall of Fame, although after checking back on the original thread seen here, a lot of the formatting has ruined the vast majority of work I produced all those years ago. Everything up until March 1998 in that thread is fixed from a few edits I did over a year ago when I was originally thinking of reviving the project.
I am now twenty-three in March, and so in the past seven years I have evolved and matured as a writer and a booker. I wish to bring back this glorious project again.
Over the next month, per three days I shall be working at modernising the coding and updating the booking ethos, and posting a month from 1998 that formatting has unkindly damaged. After that, we shall get underway once again with WWFATTITUDE1998 as we close out the year, eleven months in-story.
The final story that I had booked was November 29, 1998. So we have some catching up to do.
