I have been making videos over the past year of simmed matches in Fire Pro Wrestling World. Thank goodness for the Steam workshop, as my CAW creation skills are rudimentary at best. And I write this as someone who spent many hours in the summer of 1996 designing my own CAW attempts on Super Fire Pro Wrestling X Premium.
To say I appreciate the hard work of the CAW creators would be a vast understatement.
But I do enjoy designing unique rings. It can be tricky to get things lined up the way you want them, especially centering designs/words on the ring apron. But sometimes things work out rather well, especially with a bit of trial-and-error.
After my trip to San Francisco for New Japan Pro Wrestling's G1 Special show at the Cow Palace, I decided to design a ring with that theme in mind. I used an exterior photo that I took with my Google Pixel phone before the show and thought it worked out rather well. Then, while looking through photos from my last trip to SF in 2004, I found a picture I had taken of a place called La Rocca's Corner. That seemed like the perfect thing to try as a top-corner gimmick. It took a bit of work to find images that would work properly and then get it set up. And while the tan New Japan World apron (which I downloaded from the workshop some time ago) was just something I was trying out as a placeholder, it seemed to be a good fit so I kept it, at least for now.
You can't see them clearly, but on the other three turnbuckles I have a Starbucks vertical sign that they use at a few Disney amusement parks. After all, there is only one La Rocca's Corner.
Also, I hope it's not considered poor form to post recorded match videos on here. But I simmed this one tonight between Chad Gable and Mephisto that ended up being really good, and I thought some of you might enjoy watching it. As always, major thanks to Carlzilla for his outstanding work with the mods.
