XWF (Xbox Wrestling Federation)Edit
XWF prides itself in creating interesting and engaging storylines, and also for its "100% Custom Universe" This means there are no WWE/TNA/ROH etc wrestlers used in the XWF's shows, and all logos, rings and arenas are created from scratch using the in game creation tools.
The debut show was uploaded to Youtube on 06/01/12, and the show has had consistent releases since.
Both color and Play by play Commentary is recorded by Bear.
Origin and DesignEdit
XWF was created after the demise of the XWA (Xbox Wrestling Alliance) and was originally planned to be a complete replacement. The Owner looked at the workings of the XWA and decided that it was very high maintenance and required alot of effort from many differant people to run smoothly and effectively. So instead dropped the e-fed platform (thus removing the need for forums and interaction from large groups of people), and instead choose to take the fully scripted and coreographed route.
Initial Roster SigningsEdit
Before starting the show, The Owner looked into talent to sign, he managed to get some big and already established names on board including the likes of Dr Khan, Knightmare and Damage (All previously from XWA) Big D, Havok, Fosher and The Grebbell (previously from CSOW) Triple D and Inferno (from the EWA) and also signed Bear (who had previously done commentary for a backyard wrestling federation called EBYWF) for commentating duties.
Signings From DevelopmentalEdit
For a few years prior to XWFs creation, The Owner and his unnamed business partner ran a developmental area for upcoming wrestlers, through this they gathered the money to create the XWF in its current form. The Owner looked at some younger and new upcoming wrestlers from the developmental area that had made a name for themselves to add to the XWF roster. He signed the likes of Luke Loynes, Junction, Tobius Upson, and the teams of Pegasus (Ryan Moore and Jamie Gregory), Hardcore Hate Crew (Penance and Malice) Birds Of Prey (Falcon and Hawk) as well as many others. The Owner also signed ex-boxer Bruiser and ex-cage fighter Skinner, pairing them together as a team called "Bronx Bunny".
Acquisition of XWA propertiesEdit
Early after its creation, The Owner (Owner of XWF) had talks with Tommy T Thomas (The previous owner of the XWA) and Silas Greenback (General Manager and leader of talent relations in the XWA) and came to a deal with them, allowing use of all XWA properties, including the roster and video footage in all future XWF products.

ShockwaveEditShockwave is XWF's flagship show, featuring Matches and storyline progression. The show has a one hour template, but due to the nature of the show can run under or over depending on content.
Shockwave features the top talent in the XWF and regularly features the different championship belts being defended. Most shows usually contain between 3-5 fully coreographed matches as well as promos, backstage segments and interviews etc.
Since its inception, Shockwave has used "Never Enough" by Five Finger Death Punch, as its theme song.
AftershockEditAftershock is the secondary XWF show, featuring matches and storyline progression. The show currently has a one hour template, but due to the nature of the show can run under or over depending on content.
Aftershock started life as an alternative "side show" where XWF could showcase wrestlers who were not involved in storylines and matches on Shockwave. Over time however this changed, and Aftershock became an intergral part of the XWF programing, featuring storyline, and feud continuation from Shockwave.
Aftershock originally used "Never Enough" by Five Finger Death Punch as its theme music (the same theme as Shockwave) however it later gained its own seperate theme, "Bad Girlfriend" by Theory of a Deadman
Cut your TeethEditThe "Cut your teeth" challenge was introduced by The Owner on the 25/07/12 edition of Aftershock, originally intended only as a trial, the segment was designed with cross promotion advertisment in mind. The segment was so well recived that XWF decided to contunue the segment on future episodes of Aftershock. The first Cut Your Teeth segment featured DJ Hero from the OCW and XWF have since showcased the likes of Alieus of PWF fame and Kid Wid of ELW.
The segment was dropped later due to varying different constraints.
Tremors is an unscheduled tertiary XWF show, it features matches and storyline progression. The show currently has a 60 minute template, but due to the nature of the show can run under or over depending on content.
Pay Per ViewEdit
Pay Per Views are extended shows, punctuated with more intense action, longer matches, and higher stakes. They are used as the pinacle of a feud or to extend the feuds further. Video packages accompany the matches, to hype them up and to show story elements from the previous episodes of Shockwave and Aftershock.
XWF has no specific schedule for Pay Per View Events, with the exception that "Demolition" will always be the first of the XWF year, and Absolution will always be the last of the XWF year. The shows inbetween theese two are decided by The Owner.
