Halloween is just around the corner. I LOVE Halloween. Last year, I had a lot of fun with the SDW Halloween episode, and this year, I want to do something Halloween again! And who here likes Royal Rumbles!?
This first episode of the Heart and Soul Series will be quite a challenge. The only known competitor at this point is the current champion, Cole Scorpio. The remaining competitors will all be kept secret until they appear in the match itself.
This is open to any male wrestlers. Whether you're on the SDW roster or not, this is an opportunity to become the face of SDW! If you aren't signed to SDW and win, you'll be featured on the Heart and Soul Series (or even main SDW) at least until you drop the belt. At that point, it's up to you if you want to stay in SDW with this character. But this is assuming, of course, that you walk out victorious.
As it is Halloween themed, the only restriction is that you must have a Halloween costume of some sort. Preferably, I'd like costumes that are either A. not too difficult to recreate or B. you or someone else could recreate and upload to 2k17's PS4 CC to help me out.
PM me any sign-ups on here. I'm giving you until October 1, or until I run out of room, whichever happens first. I'm not reserving spots. This is first come, first serve.

SDW is on hiatus. But why punish the only champion for that? Here at SDW, even though we cannot open our doors for a full-time production right now, we still want to maintain a fighting champion, and provide our Heart and Soul Champion with occasional opportunities to prove himself.
Introducing, the Heart and Soul Series.
The Heart and Soul Series will consist of one match cards, and will always have the Heart and Soul Championship up for grabs. They will happen on a fairly random basis. To be the Heart and Soul Champion, you have to be ready for any challenge, at any time.
It’s been over a year since the last REAL SDW show. I feel terrible about that, and, despite the hype train I was on earlier this summer, shit isn’t getting done.
I could’ve absolutely had things done if my heart was fully in it, but right now, it just isn’t. I’m a lot less active due to a whole bunch of factors, and that in turn is kind of diminishing my love for e-fedding. I have a hard time being excited and motivated about something when I miss it all anyway due to things out of my control. And with the whole, discovering my identity thing and getting more comfortable with myself, I think I’m only gonna be around even less. And I’m sorry for that. I still love all of you. <3
I think, in its current state, it’s absolutely foolish to keep SDW in the active feds. Nothing is getting done, and I don’t want to sit here and leave this false hope that someday soon, Teezy’s terrible fed will actually have a show again.
I hope I’m not letting anyone down. If I am, I sincerely apologize. I realize this is just a hobby or whatever, but I know what it feels like when a fed goes on break or dies while you've got a sense of excitement about it. And from things I had expressed to me, some of you seemed pretty excited about SDW.
So, what now?
I’m going to hope this isn’t a goodbye, but just a “see ya later” from your pals at SDW. I am going to be putting SDW on an indefinite hiatus, with the intention of getting back on it when things are better for me. Not to say they’re bad now, just I’m not living a prime e-fed making lifestyle right now. What happens when the day comes that SDW can open its doors for a third time remains to be seen.
And hey, if it counts for something, I definitely want to try and do NEWD every year at least. So... can you get a uhhhhh SDW?
Thanks for completing the survey, to those that did! I apologize for the long wait, but we hope it was worth it. What I’m announcing today is a result of some of the feedback we’ve gotten so far. So, let’s get to it.
Over the past few days, the staff team has done some restructuring, which you may or may not have noticed. We wanted to wait until everything was 100% set before we announced it. It’s time, lads.
How did we restructure, you ask? Well, before I get into that, allow me to introduce you to our newest members of the staff team: IDBC, Francis Ugondus, and Phukfaic. We’ve also brought back another former staff member: Tiffy Lockhart.
To follow up on the team shuffling, we’ve listened and agreed to feedback regarding Derryb. He just isn’t around often anymore, and we’ve agreed to remove him from the staff team. In place of that, Derryb has been assigned a new Founder role, which will also be going to gurly and Stardy. This role will only be going to people who are not on the staff team but were part of the original founding members of AES. They will have access to the sub-forum that only fedheads can access. This is our way of recognizing those who helped start AES back in the day! We wouldn't be here without them.
Now, the restructure. In order to better describe what we do and break things down to a more specific level, we’ve changed the ADMIN role to three more specific roles:
General Manager – These are the people who are more responsible for maintaining the site. GMs will be making final decisions when it comes to more important matters. They will handle things like money, web design, and coding. These people are the only ones who have authorization to drop a permanent banhammer, should we come to the need for it.
The GM role will be handled by, in no particular order, DanBDanielson, The Doctor, and Punker.
Community Manager – This is the position I volunteered for a few months back, but now it’s an official role! Com’s will be responsible for resolving interpersonal issues, dealing with rule offenses, and handling warnings, strikes, and temporary bans. The Community Managers will be more upfront in talking to you, working as a liaison between the members and the staff. We’ll also be handling Patreon reward tiers and we’ll be working to keep drama to a minimum.
Our Community Manager team includes goldeneye101, Phukfaic, Rum (also known as TBK in case he changes his name back later), and Teezy (hey, that’s me!).
Content Manager – Content Managers will be responsible for anything that involves the community’s content, essentially. These managers will update Radio Armbar, the AES Network, Twitch highlights on YouTube, and more. They will keep the forums organized and will add, remove, and relocate subforums as necessary.
Content Managers are Beardy, Francis Ugondus, IDBC, and Tiffy Lockhart. Basically, the people who were already heavily involved in doing these things.
I think that’s about it. If you haven’t filled out the survey yet, go back and do that please! We’re really listening and trying hard to make changes to make this the best year for AES ever. And if any concerns arise, please contact me (or another member of staff) and let those concerns loose. We can’t change things if we don’t know they need fixin’!
