Much to my surprise, I saw forums for a new fed on FW Central, right above the CSWA. The fed is called Las Vegas Wrestling. On the surface, it seems like just another fed on a site that has an overglut of feds in the first place. Not only that, it's run by people who don't have the best reputations on FW.
However, I'm intrigued, and I applied. Here's why.
It's a niche fed, and it's a particularly interesting niche at that. The concept is that everything takes place in Las Vegas, and with it comes the seedy underpinnings of Sin City. It's an edgier fed. The goal is to push the envelope a little more than normal.
But then again, you might think that NFW or the fWo have pushed those same limitations in the last couple of years and they didn't have to have the trappings of limited surroundings to do it. That's a more than valid criticism. The folks heading LVW and the handlers involved are going to have to work to make sure that there's a difference. That the niche aimed for is gotten.
But if things go exactly as they've envisioned, well, this could be a really cool fed, and it could, along with NFW and EPW, be a part of a strong active three-fed core on FW and help anchor the site for years to come, even after NFW has completed its second (and possibly final) season.
(Waits for Katz to comment about how the season two will last until 2008)
