LOL. Thanks for the review, although our timing together sucks :P. I don't mind reviews like yours at all, because they weren't telling me what happened. Any review that isn't a "recap" of what was said, I like, no matter the content. Yours had plenty o' content, and t'was nice. The only thing I'd have to say to you is that Lance Storm turned face just after Halloween Havoc, in October... although the turn probably was in the first show of November. He was offered a spot in the nWo, and his face turn coincided with turning down the nWo offer. He's dropped the whole 'Anti-America' gimmick and such, and now is just, uh... a face? :P.

But yeah, our timing sucks. I'll drop you a review on your next show though.

Szumi’s NITRO Feedback

Sorry I didn’t drop any comments on your last show man, I read over it though, so I’m still up with things.

No matter how hard you try to convince me of otherwise, I still hate Schiavone and Tenay, but I feel obliged to read what they have to say just because I enjoy and eagerly anticipate your smartass remarks that you throw in for good measure, such as the “That you’re a fucktard, Tony” comment in the last show. Funny stuff.

I don’t know much of Larry Z’s persona or character, so thankfully you didn’t have too much dialogue for him in this promo. I liked the fact that you didn’t have Booker say anything when he first arrived and that he didn’t even acknowledge Zbysko’s existence, he just signed the contract. I think that’s a good way to demonstrate Booker’s desire and focus to win the championship. This was a really gutsy promo mate, some of the content was great. You did a really good job at putting over just how personal the feud between these two, the comment about the guaranteed world title shot from Booker really made it hit home. You put over both Jarrett and Booker’s characters very well, but I felt Booker’s last part of dialogue was really a bitch to read because it had a heap of slang, but that’s exactly how Booker sounds anyway so the I guess it was good in terms of realism but all the slang took away from the flow a little bit. The ending wasn’t a real shock to me, but I was a little bit surprised to see Booker make the first move as I thought Jarrett was going to explode, particularly after the comment about the World Title. I totally forgot about Larry Z, so the Scoop Slam to Eric made me giggle until Jarrett blasted his head off, cool stuff though, instant heat magnet those actions. None the less, electric opening to the show, the hype for this match has been awesome and it just got even better in my opinion, you’re doing a really good job of portraying just how personal and intense this rivalry is as well as just how much the World Title means to both men. I honestly have no idea as to which direction you’ll head as to who’ll win at Starrcade but I’m definitely leaning towards Booker because I can’t see you renaming the title the nWo World Heavyweight Championship, but I know you like to be a controversial motherfucker, so who knows. Shock me, I say. I’m rooting for a Jarrett victory just because I want to see what happens if the nWo go over but some how I think you’ll throw the strap on to the Book man.

I like that you go into the descriptions of what each man is wearing, it definitely helps create a better visualisation as to what’s going on. It’s definitely something that not enough people around here do, myself included, I do it sometimes but other times I forget all about it, none the less, good shit. I still don’t know who the fuck Mike Sanders is and it’s annoying me. Lol. Stock standard stuff here with booking the regulation one on one match as hype to a tag team match at the PPV while I like seeing O’Haire go over as I feel this feud is simple a filler to further establish the Young Lions team as you seem to be quite high on them. I’m intrigued by the fact that this Mike Sanders chap held back Johnny Stamboli thus preventing him from breaking the cover. So this Sanders bloke has the authority to book his own Tag Titles matches at Starrcade too? Interesting. Anyway, I liked his promo albeit short. His arrogance shone through brightly and I liked the way you had him try to get into the heads of the Young Lions, I still don’t think they’ll win.

Quote:
Before Tony can make any more of you contemplate suicide, the show cuts to the back.

And there it is, the regulation smartass comment making note of Tony’s stupidity. I love it.
Very entertaining stuff with Scott Steiner and the slut. I made me laugh. Particularly the “Shut it bitch and service the big bad booty daddy” line. Fucking awesome. The mind games on Stings behalf are cool too, definitely a creative way of pissing off Steiner. The “Emo bitch” call made me laugh too as did the Syringe comments. Good shit Szumi. I’m loving this show thus far.

Lance Storm generally comes across quite bland but you did a good job avoiding that here. His dialogue was very good, you kept it interesting and made his passion and drive in particular very evident. The only thing I didn’t like about this promo was the fact that I felt it was a little too similar in content to what Mike Sanders had to say as it had the same sort of feel in terms of Storm knowing exactly what Awesome is going to throw at him. This is another match I’ll be interested to see pan out. You seem quite high on Lance Storm but I think he could indeed fall victim to the numbers game of the New World Order.

Okay, don’t know who The Wall is. I don’t think your bagging of certain talent will ever grow old. Please continue with it. You were right, extremely random tag match and it’s only here to get the Cruiserweight Title match some hype and to have it noticed. Helms leaving the match was another nice way to build him and get him over even more as a heel while Crazy picks up the win over The Wall, keeping some solid momentum for him too. Lol @ the Sugar Babies being loose. The promo afterward was nice too, Helms was spot on for mine. You’re really getting him over as a heel very nicely. Super Crazy was awesome man, I was about to say his first line cracked me up, but the whole thing cracked me up, right down to the stuff with Tenay and Schiavone after it. Crazy was great, you wrote his character very well although I have absolutely no doubt that Shane Helms will go over at Starrcade.

Quote:
Mike Tenay:What a shocker that is, Tony!

Tony Schiavone: I know, Professor! Super Crazy can speak English!

Ugh.

Mike Tenay:

Yeah, me too, Tenay.
Funny shit, your sarcasm and wit will never grow dry.

Steiner bashes a stagehand and then bashes a cardboard cut-out of Sting? Odd. It seems Steiner is pissed off.

Big match next week, that’ll go a fair way to determining as to who will go over at Starrcade imo.

Steiner is pissed. Alex Wright is dead. Ahahaha. Ohh. I’m loving Steiner tonight. His reaction when the lights went out was priceless, his character did feel a little generic but I still felt the promo was very good. Once the Stinger got involved, the promo picked up even more to be honest. Sting’s character was brilliant. The mind games he’s playing are better than anything I’ve seen anyone in BTB produce with Sting or so called “Master of the Mind Games” The Undertaker. I liked how Sting alluded to the fact that once Starrcade is done, he and Steiner will head their separate ways. This match is another one that’s very hard to predict. The build and the booking for all your feuds thus far have been great, and it’s certainly tops that the outcome of your matches are hard to predict. I’m a little bit lost though, I thought Sting was done with WCW for the short term? Anyway, the baseball bat shot makes this even more personal and it builds up the rivalry more so while the bat shattering over Steiner is lame and gay, it definitely puts over his strength well. Great segment.

Wow. Flair wins clean, I thought for sure we’d see some sort of interference from the New World Order here but not to be. It’s definitely good for Flair as he builds a little momentum heading into Starrcade.

Huge promo to end things with an absolutely mammoth announcement. Flair was brilliant. His character was spot on, the same can easily be said about Hogan and Nash but for me, Flair’s part was easily the best. This promo had everything passion, intensity, humour. Like the first promo this one almost broke the barriers of kayfabe at certain points, I like that you do that but I think it’d grow a bit dry if you do it regularly. The references to the WWE/Vince about Hogan’s safe haven were interesting and I think it’s definitely something we would’ve seen in that era because it’s a way of WCW suggesting that the WWF would’ve taken talent that they no longer had any use for. The stipulation for the triple threat is huge, I have absolutely no idea who’ll win again and I think that’s great. It certainly has me asking plenty of questions, as do most of your feuds. I liked the fact that this one didn’t end with a brawl instead a simple stare down. Great promo again, all the characters were spot on and you did a great job of creating an easy visual of what was going on.

Overall mate, this was a great show. The build towards Starrcade is going fucking brilliantly to be honest with you. None of the matches were overly gripping or enthralling but it was definitely your booking skills that shone through here and they and the promos were of a very high standard. Literally EVERY segment served its purpose in hyping the PPV and when that’s the case your booking obviously shines through brilliantly. Well done man, this thread is quickly becoming my favourite simply because of it’s originality and your dare to be different. The match banners are awesome too btw, great job Crazian.

Default Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Wow... that was a damn nice/good/awesome piece of feedback, Para. Spanks dude.

Larry Zbyszko really doesn't have much of a character at this point. He's a WCW staff member, and will sort of be an on-screen guy for WCW board of directors (the always off-screen, faus pax owners of WCW). He's a WCW loyalist, and erm, The Living Legend . Not a whole lot to say, really.

Mike Sanders was a Power Plant graduate, and is a former WCW Commissioner and Cruiserweight Champion, although as the latter, he sucked. I'm not fond of him as a wrestler, but he was a solid mouthpiece me thinks. Also, it wasn't Sanders making the match himself, more was him announcing that the match had already been made by the board of directors (at Sanders' request/challenge, of course). It flows better just having Sanders announce the match then going through the whole explanation. Although, speaking of Sanders, you bring up a good point with the Lance Storm promo. In general, some sort of promo in terms of they know their opponents very well; I probably should've seperated the two promos further out in the show. Good catch. Also, here: More Mike Sanders info

Some of the stuff I book/write, I don't really want to. Tony Schiavone on commentary (and commentary in general) is not my favorite thing to write, so I make it much more fun and easy by adding in the wit. Same with just writing shows, period. Sometimes I'd rather do something else, but I want to get the show done, so I throw in a line or two so I can get a good chuckle. I'm glad to see that it is liked so well.

The Wall is pretty much your generic big man. He got onto WCW TV because Nash noticed him, but there's nothing special about him. Green in the ring, and not very over. He improved in 2002 once TNA came around, but nothing special at this point. He got really out of shape by WCW's end as well; he had a bad drug habit, and it was a big cause for his death. More Wall Info

To be honest, I didn't like writing Sting until I wrote the promo for him at Mayhem. It was just something so new and fresh, that it helped me create this new character for him. He's arguably my current favorite character in TTO. And yeah, breaking the bat over Steiner's chest was incredibly lame, but that's our dear WCW for you; gimmick and cheaping a weapon . <3.

Glad to see that the ending promo was a hit, and no shocker that Flair was the best. He's pretty awesome to write for, although Hulk Hogan is still awesome as well, brother. Glad to see that Nash was better than as of late; I've had some problems getting into a rhythm with Nash, and getting inspired by him. I haven't enjoyed writing for him too much, and it's showed. However, definitely happy to see that the show came off as a major success, as I wanted to make it something great before I head back to uni. From here, updates will be less frequent, although I do hope that I can have Starrcade up by the end of February. I want to write a 3rd Starrcade match, and then the 4th and final Nitro before Starrcade. That will give me 4 matches to write for Starrcade (and all the promos, commentary, etc.) in one-shot, instead of the usual everything.

Any other reviews would be welcomed, and they'll most likely be returned. And Reney, I am expecting one from you, Aussie. <3

Default Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

I'll have all you bookers know he held a gun to my head 'til I agreed to comment his show. Opinions on banning plz...

***

Larry Z, meh. I'm so/so over him but whatever, Booker T getting straight to the point without anything said was a little surprising. Bischoff and Jarrett getting on the mic was quality and then Bookah! BOOKER TEEEEE! Great speech from the Book Man, hilarious ending line on the slap nuts insult, fucking gold. Totally awesomeness to open the show imo. Damn, Larry gets wasted by Jarrett. Holy shit Jarrett just took out Booker aswell, he's looking strong for the title win methinks, but I'd still love to see Book win. Overall a great opening segment in every way

rofl Marky Mark. Interesting to see two halves of the original Natural Born Thrillers feuding with each other, with of course no more Shawn Stasiak (Billy Gunn wanna be) and Reno (Ugly version of Maven) around. Sanders still running things for the NBT it seems and it should be a nice tag match to see

Bahaha Steiner gets cock blocked. Sting > Steiner plz. Midajah's acting makes porn stars look like Oscar winners tbh. I lovve Steiner on the mic tho, never holds back from the cussin', "emo bitch"

OMG how about giving Lance a dose of charisma in his breakfast. He's bland. Gonna get serious? lolz. Good promo from you here, despite Storm being very vanilla on the mic

Very weird combinations for this tag match but the story is told afterwards in a very comical promo. Super Crazy vs Helms shall be a good match and with the title on the line you can see Shane Helms retaining. I had to laugh during the whole thing, Super Crazy talking like a retard

Steiner is getting messed with something cronic, Sting must be having a field day with this idiot. Steiner crushes some no name, fair enough. Sting = ratings. Great promo, you capture Sting perfectly every time. This match is gonna be sweet, I like this feud the most atm

Main event was solid but wow, the ending promo, wow. I marked. Awesome announcement from Nash and for both to accept is big, BIIIGGG. I think Flair retires, but I can't be sure, they are all as you say, past it. But whoever loses, it'll still be a massive match. Flair, Nash and Hogan all sounded fine here and made it a class promo

Good work Szum, now if I give you a "modest" mark you'll put the gun away, rit? 10/10



8.5./10 tbh

<3

Erm...

Segment 1 - Yuck

Segment 2 - Meh

Segment 3 - Blah

Segment 4 - Meh, again...









ROFLMAO. J/K of course. Hatchet = Buried? If not, fuck off. No, really.

Anyway, I am psyched to get into this. Great to have a “realistically good" WCW thread, unlike anything else, ever done, by anyone else. I remember seeing this float around way back when I was headed out from my first run. You hadn't made your name yet. It was intriguing then, and obviously still is. I LOVED WCW with a passion. Still do. Still watch all the old tapes, as I own just about every piece of wrestling filmed since 1980. And I’m proud to say that during the 83 weeks Nitro beat Raw, I was part of the reason. Nitro got watched, and Raw was lucky to get tivo’d. But tbh, I hated WCW by late 1999, and I switched back to WWF. I literally had to watch tapes to catch up on the year 2000-2001, which I did long after the company was dead. Just really hard to watch. Horrible angles and Title matches, and the Hudson-Madden-Tony team was enough to induce vomiting, tbh. I really thought it sucked. Glad to see you using Tony and Tenay. Iron Mike was so great back in WCW. He sucks beyond belief now. And I know you have a passion for good wrestling and crisp storylines, so I am sure the company will be in good shape. Starrcade looks good, and the banners rule. Although the two titles matches at the top are far less intriguing than the rest of the card unfortunately. Glad to see you still using the big name guys, and hopefully you'll keep them around a while longer. Especially considering they've all continued, in one way or another, right on through today. Anyway, looking forward to reviewing Starrcade. Ironically, that will be my next/first "in full" offering as well. Mine will obviously stomp yours.

Later hater.

Jamie1 Review

Szum this is my first time doing a review so it may not be great but I will try anyway J



First of I would just like to tell you that this is the first show of yours I have read but as I can see with the Starrcade card its shaping up to be a great night, I am a huge WCW fan and thought even though during 2001 and so on WCW was heading to a close I still felt they had some of the best talent in the company to ever belong on a WCW roster and I hope you can do with the talent that I don’t think WCW could do


‘ And what Tony says, goes…. So we cut to the ring ‘ classic J I have heard about the funny comments you stick in and I liked this one, hopefully more to come


Booker T. Jeff Jarrett and Eric Bischoff Promo: First of all how dare that piece of crap Bischoff talk to like you said the living legend Larry Zbyszko’s like that, I was so hoping that Larry Zbyszko’s was going to answer Bischoff back with no you shut the hell up and then hook him, was not to. Anyway this match is really heating up, Jarrett and Bischoff promising to kill WCW, if Booker doesn’t win WCW will be dead and NOW will take over, I don’t think so, well I hope not, Booker T was as intense as ever walking down to the ring not like his usual self, he never even done his trademark entrance, flying down that stage LOL, Now onto the actual contract signing, due to this being the first time reading your show I have to say it is the best promo I have seen you do, character wise was brilliant and your little comments in between passages of people talking, really does crack me up. Anyway Bischoff was in great character, really excelled yourself to me as a great booker with how good you got the characters, Jeff Jarrett calling Booker T black I was not sure about until I read on as I started to love this slating, All the jokes about how he is just a ghetto boy and I really loved Booker T, you can believe in God, you can believe in karma, or even Buddha, at the end of it all, it’s the good who win out in the end. The black souls, the horrible people, the Booker T’s of the world, they come out losers. This was definitely the best line in this promo, so much like Jarrett, cocky arrogant bast***. Booker T once again showing his really emotions which I loved, I knew he was going to fly across at Jarrett and what would a contract signing be without a little scrap. The walking legend taking down Bischoff, Oh what I would do to see that. .. . ..! Even though I would be screaming at my TV screen if this was on TV you definitely done the right thing making Jarrett take both men out, I always feel it is better with the heel going into a pay-per-view on top.


I have one question about this last promo, Maybe its because I haven’t read any of your shows before but Jarrett is champion! And he said when he wins the title he is going to turn it into the N W O belt, why has he not done it already!!!!!!


The opening match of the night I feel would have been a good match with two men with a lot of talent. I know this doesn’t seem like I am saying a lot about the match but I just do not know what to say, prefer reading promos.. . . Me! Anyway afterwards in the match I found interesting, I always liked Mike Saunders for some weird reasons but anyway I did, I thought you had him in good character and this adds to the already great Starrcade card. Really getting hyped up for Starrcade and the rest of this show


‘ Before Tony can make any more of you contemplate suicide, the show cuts to the back ‘


Another funny comment throwing in, I love it Szum, maybe it isn’t your writing abilities that gets you noticed on WF maybe it is your funny comments!…. .. .. Nah only joking but It did make me laugh


Scott Steiner Promo: Scott Steiner wants some… .. . .. Eh Sting!!!! J LOL, Steiner and Midajah A.K.A Slut and I love it, no only joking, Sting trashing Steiner’s locker room is a brilliant idea to intense this feud up, what man wouldn’t be happy if they were just about to get the sort of thing Steiner was, I wonder!


Lance Storm interview. I was wondering how the most boring man to ever grace this earth interview would go and it actually went quite well, see to tell you the truth Szum I actually cannot remember Lance Storm doing many interviews so I was not sure about his character, All I did know is if he seemed boring then his character would be fine. I picture him in my mind with what he was saying and yes I can see him saying stuff like that, I am not trying to slate Storm as I like him and I think he is a great athlete but Szum please keep him of the mic!


Match 2: Nice partners for both men, I read through the match and it was alright, I think it would have been good to see on TV


I loved the aftermath of match 2, It was very good, Super crazy can speak English and Szum I have to tell you I didn’t no they could speak English either. Anyway another match set for Starrcade, it really is getting better and better as this show continues


Steiner taking down the plastic cut out was creative genius, I feel it is small things like that which make the show more entertaining and sometimes bring in the ratings so I was glad to see this, Steiner seems to be getting more angry and I am thinking someone Is going to get hurt.


Scott Steiner match LOL is all I can say


Sting and Scott Steiner it was like an Undertaker moment, Scott Steiner I knew would come out to the ring and demand Sting came out and that is what he did, Steiner was in good character acting cool when the lights flicked back on but when the lights were off probably crapping himself, Sting coming out and smacking Steiner with the bat across the chest I felt was a little lame after all the build up, I think you could have done a little better with this


The Main Event was good and their was only one man that could have won and that was the nature boy, Ric Flair, my complete idle, this guy carried WCW and I loved him for it and still do love him, This was an alright match and a match that would also be good to see on TV


The Big Ending: Oh My God Szum I thought you had gave all you could get for a normal weekly show with the opening promo but after reading this one it totally throws that out the window, you made me feel like I was sitting in the arena, What a match for Starrcade, the winner getting a shot at the title with the loser retiring, I personally hope Hulk Hogan is forced to retire, I just think this would be a great way for him to go out, I would then like to see Flair win back the title and retire on that note!, What a ending for both men’ s career. Anyway what a way to end the promo, Ric Flair going crazy around the ring that is why I love this guy, he is just the best and at Starrcade we will see if Hogan and Nash can beat the best…… . . . .. .! Hulk Hogan was also in character and I really felt the emotion of all three men, If only WCW could book like this it would be them making a fool of there self creative wise today instead of the WWE.


Overall Szum this is the first ever show I have reviewed on this forum and it was an honour to review yours, like I said at the start the review might not be brilliant but I certainly tried, Great show anyway Szum and expect a better review for Starrcade, might not get a review in for the next Nitro. Sorry!

Default Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

I'm not going to give ya a full review, I'm afraid, due to time restrictions, but I will give some of my views on the latest Nitro.

The thing that stands out the most imo is that Nash-Hogan-Flair is being treated as being bigger than the WCW World Title match. Rightfully so though, as those three men are better than the Bookman or Jarrett(I hate that guy) could ever be even in their wildest dreams.

Another thing that I find particulary neat is how the roster seems divided in two groups, two poles almost. A WCW-group, pro WCW and a anti-WCW group, the nWo. I really like how you manage to incorporate that into almost every feud, bar the Cruiserweight feud I believe.

The Sting promo was brilliant. Loved how there were Sting-Steiner segments throughout the show, culminating with a brilliant promo, as stated before. This feud is definitely one of the top-feuds you have going, imo, and it'll make for a good match (psychology wise) at Starrcade.

While Booker T's promos have drawn me in the feud to a certain extent, the WCW-title feud actually doesn't interest me as much. I'd love for Booker to go over and it being the beginning almost of the implosion of nWo, or at least nWo's reign of terror(lol).

One thing I didn't like, Curt Hennig, loses clean to Flair. Sure, Flair's better and I don't mind Hennig losing clean to him in itself, it's just that this was the main event, the match only got 8 minutes and Hennig looked almost like Flair's whipping boy out there.

Otherwise a great show, Szum, and I can't wait for the final show before Starrcade and of course, Starrcade itself. And kudos to you for drawing me into this the way you have. I must say this has to be the first time I've actually been looking forward to the next shows and such, so yea, great job.

Nitro Review:

Booker/Jarrett Promo-Excellent promo to start the show. Really gave more heat to the feud, because before this Nitro, the feud was kind of average. Looking forward though to the next part of the buildup, as this feud has me interested.

Match 1: Really O Haire winning the match does nothing more, than confirm that the NBT will remain the champs at Starrcade. With the build that the team is being given, I’ll be shocked to see a title change take place. Sanders’ promo drove home that thought even more.

Steiner’s Promo-This was an excellent promo written in true Szumi style. Steiner was great in this segment, and it adds to the upcoming match between the two.

Storm’s Promo: Glad to see that you’re continuing with Storm’s WCW gimmick. While by the time Storm’s gimmick became well, I was already watching more WWE than WCW, Storm was one wrestler who was actually good in WCW. The Storm/Awesome match should be good, come Starrcade.

Tag Match: Really this match was just average. Crazy and Morris gets the win, as expected. Thankfully Helms picks up the segment with his promo, before Crazy finally announces that the title match between the two at Starrcade is made official. Crazy speaking in English was well booked as well.

Steiner/Wright-While I’m a fan of Alex Wright, this obviously was not even a match. Steiner wins obviously, and finally it looks like Steiner and Sting is going to come face to face.

Steiner/Sting Promo: I loved the way this promo was booked. Steiner saying some of his comments was done in true Steiner form. However the four vultures segment was done quite well, and was original. The pre taped promo from Sting, before he actually appears in the ring was great. That’s not something that is used in BTB as much, so it was good to see it was done in this feud, as it fits the feud perfectly. Sting hitting Steiner with the obviously gimmicked bat was good booking as well. I have a feeling that this match, somehow, can be a Match of the Night Candidate.

Main Event: Despite it being Henning’s return match from his injury, he was never winning the match against Flair. However the promo was greatly done, even for a WCW promo, during this time frame. Honestly this match has the easiest buildup of any of the other matches on the card. I know you’re a fan of Hogan, so I don’t think he’s losing, neither is Flair. In all honesty, I see Nash losing this match. Reason being, I have a feeling that Hogan v. Flair will take place either at Superbrawl, Uncensored, or at the latest Spring Stampede.

Overall Comments: Obviously this Nitro was written, just to continue the feuds, as the matches were really decent at best. However it’s understandable that the matches were kept short, so that the promos can help the feuds continue. I’m looking forward to the upcoming news in this thread, regarding the future of WCW in this thread. I’m looking forward, to the next Nitro in this thread as well.

Just wanted to drop in here and say "Hey, thanks" for the comments ya'lls. Para, NB, kid o, Jamie, Alco, and of course, Reney bo Beney. I was hoping I'd have more free time this weekend, especially since it was a 3 day weekend, but my sister was in town and t'was my mom's birthday, so didn't get much accomplished. If I get any free time over the week, I'll look to hit Alco with some feedback, or if any other of you's have a new show up.

Progress will be slower from here on out. I am dilligently working on the 12-12 Wednesday Nitro right now, and maybe I'll be able to get the preview and the show up by Friday night, maybe I won't. However, I still have 4 matches for Starrcade to write after this, as well as the promos, additional commentary, and what will probably be a potentially lengthy preview and of course, the predictions contest. I would like to have Starrcade up by the end of February, but honestly, it could very well end up being as late as March before I get it up. College takes up so much of my time, and that's much more important than writing BTB, obviously. And to be honest, I'm in no hurry to write this show and make it some awesome, great, spectacular piece of art. I'm looking more to just trying to enjoy actually writing a full PPV for once, especially since I plan on it being the last time I write a PPV in full. Despite what the ignorant will say and think, I'm not egotistical enough to worry and fixate myself on winning a Best PPV award for Starrcade, or anything like that. Fuck that. I'm just looking towards enjoying my writing, and hoping that Starrcade gives you, my readers, some entertainment. And that, my kiddies, is my homily to you for now. So until then, be sure to take care of yourself, and each other
