Chapter One: Meet the Roster

Hello, and welcome to my latest fic, "TBW: Tampa Bay Wrestling". It's about a wrestling promotion that John Cena and Mickie James form soon after they marry. Since all of the wrestlers are fictional characters, I thought it would only be fair to give you all this chapter to get acquainted with them and the plot. So here you go!

Back Story

WWE Superstar John Cena and TNA Knockout Mickie James were recently married. As a joke, John's best man, Randy Orton, bought the newlyweds a bunch of lotto tickets as a part of his wedding gift to them. As it turns out, one of the tickets was a winner. John and Mickie decided to use the jackpot to start their own promotion, Tampa Bay Wrestling, in their adopted hometown. Most of the roster is composed of young up-and-comers, and some even have family already in the business.
