Fanfic / The JWL

Go To

The JWL is a Professional Wrestling Fan Fiction series written by JIKTV. It takes existing wrestlers, in some cases with new gimmicks, and sets them in the eponymous promotion. It has been running for a decade, give or take some gaps. It is available here. It has had 80 TV episodes and 6 PPVs. It is slightly Alternate Universe because, while it focuses on wrestlers/managers/valets from WWE, WCW, ECW and others, it features in some cases gimmicks or alliances that do or did not exist.

The JWL is a Script Fic presenting itself as a regular wrestling show. There's no shipping, smut, or episodes without it. Often the content of the episodes reflects real life wrestling happenings. See the Real Life Writes the Plot section for more.

At present, the JWL World Heavyweight Title is vacant due to Jacob "Jack Swagger" Hager being fired for his pot/speeding/DUI arrest, and the JWL Women's Title and the JWL World Tag Team Titles are also vacant.


Also, some rules:

  • 1. Much like on PG/Reality Era WWE programming, NO MEN HITTING WOMEN.note 
  • 2. NO Dusty Finishes, "Montreal Screwjob finishes," no WrestleMania IX/MITB run-in finishes, NO Fingerpoke Of Doom finishes.
  • 3.When a wrestler/manager/valet/etc. is released/fired, that's it. Said person can no longer return. If a character leaves of his/her own choosing, he/she could potentially return albeit in a different role. (See below under Screw This, I'm Outta Here! for the one time that this has happened.)
  • Advertisement:
  • 4.NO pregnancy/wedding/etc. angles.
  • 5.NO hotshotted title changes (i.e., someone winning a title on a PPV and losing it on the following TV show.)
  • 6.NO restraining order angles or anything that might involve a lawyer.

Finally, a warning: JIKTV'S personal biases toward/against certain people may come through at times.
