WCW Universe Mode

WCW Universe Mode is one of the oldest and most popular regular features on IRM. It is a completely simulated Universe Mode calendar, using a roster comprised entirely of WCW lower-tier wrestlers from the 1990's and early 2000's. The Universe Mode uses WWE '12 for Xbox 360, and all 50 CAW's were downloaded from Community Creations, prior to the servers being shut down.

About the Show

Let's be honest. As with most Universe Mode streams, the fun comes in the ridiculous stuff that goes down, and when plans go completely against what Bryan, Fitz, the rest of the hosts, and the chat expect or want to happen. Teams newly created only to feud one show later, wrong music glitches, weird cutscenes, winners in matches that put together a way sadder narrative, and Monarcas de Sixman. The less we talk about Monarcas de Sixman, the better. But we roll with it, and it leads to weird gimmick changes, feuds, and super fun times.

Hardcore Thunder

Hour 1 of Nitro and Worldwide are the two main "brand shows" (using Universe Mode lingo), but the real fun comes with Hardcore Thunder. It is the only weekly program where the WCW Hardcoreweight Championship is defended on every show, in every match. Here are some of the features and rules of Hardcore Thunder:

  • The WCW Hardcoreweight Champion competes in all three matches on the card. Winner stays, loser(s) leave.
  • Every episode has three matches. A singles match, a three-way dance, and a four-way dance.
  • All matches have a 10-minute time limit and are fought under Extreme Rules.
  • If the time limit expires without a winner, the champion retains, even if he has been eliminated in the three-way or four-way.
  • All competitors in Hardcore Thunder are selected by the chat, or guests on the call. In other words, no rhyme or reason whatsoever.

PPV Schedule

As of August 2015 (and coincidentally, August Year 1 in the in-game calendar), WCW Universe Mode will run on a 6-month event/PPV cycle. The cycle begins in January/July, and each month features a PPV event, more often than not with "Clash" in the title. The six PPVs that comprise a full cycle are:

  • Superbrawl
  • Clash of the Champions
  • Fall Brawl (featuring WarGames)
  • Uncensored (Main event: 6-way TLC for the Hardcoreweight Title)
  • World War 3
  • Starrcade (featuring BattleBowl)

In addition, there are events that take place throughout the calendar, such as various tournaments, which often lead to the winner being given a championship title shot at the following PPV. See below for more information on these.


As stated above, all roster members are CAWs downloaded from the Community Creations server, which is no longer active. No more additions can or will be made to the roster. Many roster members have undergone gimmick changes, name changes, appearance changes, or a combination of the three. Where a roster member has had a gimmick change, their original identity is listed in parentheses.
