Asking Meltzer to rate my matches

Re: Official 2012 KoBTB Discussion Thread
I guess so, but i'm just hoping that the criteria isn't TOO strict, to the point that it restricts creativity and individuality. After all, we all have different tastes in wrestling and I think that those tastes and preferences should be given the chance to be showcased. I understand how judging say a Mysterio/Cena 2011 match and then an Flair/Steamboat 89 match can be very difficult for the judges, but I really do dislike the idea of restricting the writers TOO much.
I wouldn't mind criteria such as; The match has to be X amount of minutes, it has to be a 1 v 1 match, has to end cleanly etc. But I really don't like the idea of it being like "Your match has to be John Cena vs. CM Punk in a Steel Cage match with CM Punk going over after an Elbow Drop from the top of the steel cage".
I'm not expecting anything like that, but that's what I meant by criteria. I obviously know there are going to be guidelines and such.
I highly doubt it will be like that, would be a dumb move on the part of KingRo to make the tournament like that. I think it will be like you said originally, the task be like - write a 6 man tag, or, write a triple threat, or, write a Ladder match... etc. with teh wrestlers, time frame, arena etc. up to you, still leaving you with some form of creativity.
