Don't fear....a response of more than one line is here!
The Opening Promo was one of, if not thebest Openings I have ever read. It was truely awesome.
Interesting to have the United States Title defended first, and I have no problem with Eddie keeping the Title. Great show of respect afterwards.
The Hurricane/Dust segment was weird....
Damn my feelings about the Trish/Jericho segment weren't true...I suppose we couldn't see Jericho get screwed again. And Trish and Kane would have been....disgusting to say the least.
I liked how HHH interacted with the Raw guys (Evolution) and I liked Eminem's cameo appearence.
Very suprised to see Goldberg tap out. That was a shock for me.
Coach vs Josh LOL and Coach giving Josh a chinese burn...DOUBLE LOL
Christian winning was a formality, I couldn't see him losing the Title that quickly. But for me the feud isn't over.
Should have guessed that Sting was gonna win the Battle Royal...damn.
OMG OMG OMG MY CAMEO WITH TORRIE, OMG OMG!!!!!!!!! AND MY KISS FROM TORRIE, AND MY ROWDY BEHAVIOUR SHOWING MY THUGISH CHELSEA BEHAVIOUR.....WB U PWN LOL.
Ya, Britain (+ Ireland) rule
Anyway back to reality....and Taker vs. HBK....it had to be 13-0 for the Taker, I just can't see the streak diminishing
Very shocked to see Rocky win the belt, upset of the night for me so far....
WOW! Austin and McMahon.....OMG, I don't think we've seen that ending before....I thought that Bret was gonna turn, but he didn't and Austin came up trumps...as I had predicted.
What a Main Event, I just knew Cena had to win....if you continue this, it just has to be Cena's year....surely?

Well knowing me I could go on and on and on, but I need to pay tribute to what is undoubtebly the best PPV to grace BTB, certainly in the time I've been here. 94 pages is a hell of a task and I definately understand why you are taking what will be a well deserved rest. Everybody has to take note on this PPV, as this is one hell of a job.
Wrestlemania Review: Opening Movie: Great, completely realistic. Eddie vs Beniot: Awesome match!! Great use of both charcters, I wasn't expecting Eddie to win from the victory roll and nice appreciation at the end, a great opener to Mania.
Loved the Goldust and 'Gregory Helms' thing backstage! lol! Womens Title: Good, solid match. Like the way that Shaniqua retained. Jericho vs Kane was also done great with the distinct weight and power advantage being used, also good way for Jericho and Trish to get together, glad they did though, can't imagine Trish and Kane. Glad Jericho won and it was a good way to do it. Tag Titles: Great match, shocked that AMW dropped the titles after two months, a very realisitic match as well as a realistic finish
Nice Rock interview, thats more realistic than the rock nowadays. Goldberg vs Angle: Wow! I didn't expect Goldberg to tap!! I didn't even think he was gonna lose! Another great match, i'm glad Angle won again but i still dont see the rivalry ending here.
lol, nice segment between Coach and Matthews, frightenly realistic. Christian vs Edge was good, and I like the way that Christian won due to the 'giant man' which we can only presume is Tyson Tomko. The match definately lived up to the hype, if not surpassed it.
The HOF ceremony was a great idea, like the nominees. Battle Royal: Honky Tonk Man!! Rick Dragon Steamboat!!!! WOW!!! HUGE, HUGE, news! what a match! Two great legend guests! Shame none of the legends won, but greatly written match, especcially when it was down to Dupree and Sting.
nice Eugene segment, hope he wrestles soon!
lol!! Coach and Matthews still fighting, and like girls!! LMAO!!!! Six Pack: Phenominal match!!! Its a shame Tajiri has lost the belt already but it was still a phenominal match!!
lol!!! nice segment with Stacy, Torrie, Showstopper, Grendrill and shit, I've forgot who Calum is! My apologies to Calum.
LMAO!!!!!! Coach and Matthews again!!! Britney Spears!!! LMAO!!!!!!! Taker vs HBK: Shame it wasn't stipulated, but it certainly didn't affect it!! AWESOME! Awesome match! Half glad Taker won, but it doesn't matter who won, it was the fact that the match was just fucking greeat!!!! Rock vs HHH: The night just gets better and better!! New champion!! Rock wins! Great match!!!! Can't wait for the next two!!!! Austin vs Lesnar: Unique way to finish the match, it was both cool and strangely realistic. Awesome match! Awesome way to end the rivalry!! Wow! Hope the rivalry doesn't end here!! Orton vs Cena: Awesome match! Shame Cena won but it was once again realistic.
Altogether a great ppv! Realistic, great read, lived up to the hype if not surpassed it! Jam packed of action, great fights, great shocks, great everything!!! infinity/10. UNBELIEVABLE!!!! 94 pages!?! 94 pages of greatness, from start to finish!

I only managed to successfully predict 5 out of 11 (and the battle royal but i didn't really preict for that)
Rock winning the belt was a major upset in my eyes.
Austin/Lesnar. So many twists and turns was on the edge of my seat, Heyman to turn? McMahon to turn on Lesnar, Bret to turn at the end? In the end Vince tapping out to the sharpshooter making the count was brilliant. Liked the fact that you had the time keeper and co say no to vince really good.
Cena winning the championship was expected but great to see him win.
Hope you'll carry on with this thread when you come back.... Will be looking forword to it!
Legend Killers and Simply Priceless Wrestling War!!
World Elite Wrestling
'Thursday Night Warfare' show posted
Opening Movie: As said by everyone, one of the best i've seen. Truly realistic
Eddie vs Beniot: A great opener which would really get us pumped up for the rest of the event. A nice ending with a victory roll and good show of respect at the end.
The Goldust and Gregory Helms segment was freaky and hilarious at the same time.
Womens Title: A good match which would be exciting to see. Surprised that Shaniqua retained but then I guess that proves her dominance.
Jericho vs Kane: A great solid match as well. Near falls. Trish almost turning but I knew that wasn't gonna come after I read that part. It's a good thing Jericho won. Maybe a push for him down the line.
AMW v WGTT : A nice match with real tag team action. Was surprised to see WGTT win the belts but I was glad they did!
Rock Interview was great. Would have been more fun with The Coach
Goldberg vs Angle: I did expect Angle to win but not with the Anklelock. I thought it might be quick pin or Angle Slam victory. But Goldberg tapping out was great and I really enjoyed that!
Coach and Matthews segment was a great idea and hilarious as well.
Christian vs Edge: An awesome match with plenty of near falls, near turnbuckle touches and near belt grabbing oppotunities. Expected Christian to cheat to win but was wondering what you would do. The idea of that giant man (must be Tomko) was good and this rivalry is far from over.
HOF ceremony was nice with Gene Okerlund doing the honours.
Battle Royal: Loved the legend especially Ricky Steamboat. AWESOME! I din't read Sting was going to be in the Battle Royal. Should have known that he would have won.
A great funny segment with Eugene. I know you have great plans for him. Can't wait for him to join the active roster!
Six Pack: A GREAT match. Wasn't expecting Chavo to win at all and Tajiri losing it early but was a good idea to have him lose to Chavo.
A nice segment with Torrie and Stacy with CHELSEA all the way. Not a Chelsea fan (coz they thrashed Newcastle) but I liked the idea of it!
Taker vs HBK: Shame there wasn't a stipulation to it but it was great none the less. Undertaker kicking out of two Sweet Chin Musics. I thought HBK won it after he nailed the second SCM! Taker winning was good although I wanted HBK to win but Taker's record has to stay...13-0!!
Rock vs HHH: Another AWESOME match as well. Great title match and surprising to see Rock win but it's good that he did. Maybe we could have a Rock/Brock feud now!
Austin vs Lesnar: A great Match! With all the drama happening in the match, this surely has to be The Match of The Year! Timekeeper refusing McMahon...Heyman nailing McMahon.."Bring back ECW v WWE"..Bret almost siding with McMahon but nailing him as well..And A GREAT WAY TO END THE MATCH WITH MCMAHON TAPPING OUT!!!!
Orton vs Cena: Awesome match which only two young superstars can pull off. A great Main Event. Cena winning and Orton clapping for him is what I liked. With Orton refusing Evolution's help. I see a Orton removal from Evolution on the next Raw or maybe at Backlash!
All in All, THE BEST PPV EVER READ!! Shocks..Turns..Great Moments..It had everything..I would definitely pay to watch this a million times!
On a side note, If Titan Towers is not too far away from where you live (forgive me..I donno where you live), I think you should apply as Creative Head at the WWE. I'm sure we'll have a great time watching WWE again!!!!
Firstly, I'm overwhelmed by the in depth replies from the majority of people, and has made posting WrestleMania well worth it, to those, thank you very much.
Secondly, I need to comment on the future of this thread, and my own future on the BTB forums. Its been a blast over this last year, yes, it has only been one year (LOL), but at this point in time, after days of thought, I'm unsure over what I should or even can do in terms of booking. I have a lot of important stuff coming up over the next five months, which by the way, I have very little interest in (A-Levels, which I'm pretty sure I will fail at this time), and booking shows cannot come as a priority.
I will think about my future over the next seven days, and weigh up my options as to what to do, so for anyone interested in knowing my decision, it will be made this day next week.
In the mean time, I would once again like to thank everyone for the support over the last twelve months, and I really hope this isnt the end, but if it is, I think its a good way to bow out...
it sure would be a good way to bow out, but i hope that you manage to get time to keep writing this thread as it is one of the many things keeping the BTB alive as well as the fact that the thread and you as a booker are great!! well, either way i will support your decision but im pulling for the keep the thread going.
Well, I don't really know what to say as of this moment but I'll try and make it short. I won't give a soppy goodbye speech, na you're too good for that
I really hope that you don't quit. Well, of course I understand about the exams and so on, and probably this time next year I will be contemplating the exact same situation that you are trying to tackle.
I have to say though, BTB wouldn't be the same without you man. Maybe you could post a show every couple or so weeks, maybe recaps....I dunno.
I know you'll still be here and shit giving people advice and reading WWE: Afterlife (cheap plug ) but it just won't feel right.
Anyway, go with what your heart and mind is saying and if this is the end, so be it. Even if it is the end, you bowed out on one hell of the show.
Your WrestleMania XXI was the first PPV I have ever read on this board and I must say that it is what keeps me coming back. It was the most spectacular piece of work I have ever read. Vince McMahon should consider hiring you as a member of the creative writing staff. I honestly think that you could bring a lot of fans back to wrestling.
Thats right. Twenty nine days ago, I posted Wrestlemania, and at that point in time, I hadnt a clue as to what I would do afterwards. A break was for sure, but I had to think as to what I would come back with...a new thread...or this one.
And after a few weeks of racking my brains...continuously changing my mind as to what to do...I've finally concluded that I will continue with this thread.
However...the amount of time I have on my hands is limited at the moment, and as a result, I will be only doing full Smackdowns, and recapping Raw. Although, whenever joint PPV's are coming up, I will be writing both shows out fully.
So...I shall post up details as to when the first show will be etc etc over the next few days, and other stuff etc. Hopefully there will be interest left in this thread, and hopefully I can continue to please anyone who has been pleased with my writing in the past....
