Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

There was a Gold Rush tournament happening on RAW with the winner of the tourny facing Triple H who had the title at the time. Edge won in the finals beating Kane, even though he was still holding the MITB. I think.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Edge indeed won the Gold Rush Tournament, which was a tourney featuring some of the top stars of RAW, thus he was in it. This was in about May (just after Triple H had "walked out", leading to the Hell in a Cell), resulting in him facing Batista for the title. Basically, he didn't come out and declare he wanted to be number one contender, because considering he had the briefcase, that would be odd.

Whenever he had a title shot, there was some sort of suggestion that he would drop the briefcase because he wouldn't need it anymore. For example:

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

In regards to the latest 'Heyman has a new promotion' thread I always wonder why every new Heyman company is hardcore oriented. I think if Heyman ever started a new company it would NOT be similar to ECW at all. He understands why the WWE moved away from the Attitude Era, back to PG. He'd come with a whole new concept probably.

Mine wasn't, and since it was the best BTB of all time, it's the one you should use as the measuring-stick.

It's a BTB, anything can happen. I'm personally a fan of hardcore wrestling and I felt like bringing it to the table. With the idea of a founder, Paul Heyman was they only person I would ever want to be in control.

I think your confusing yourself with PARANoIR

To me I can't really see the benefit of doing a Heyman based BTB, as you'd never top what EPW was and you'd constantly be compared to it.

I've had some ideas for created BTB's involving Heyman but ultimately I don't do them because I'd feel I was biting off EPW and it would seem unoriginal.

I would much rather see someone try to be original with someone other than Heyman. There are other great former promoters out there or people who could be turned into resonable figure heads.

Bill Watts (someone I always toyed with the idea of)

Terry Funk

Bret Hart (bringing back Stampede Wrestling, another idea I've toyed with)

Edge

Shawn Michaels

Raven

Even Shane McMahon

Anyone of those would be a good basis for a backstory and you'd come off all the better for being original.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I could pull a Dixie/Bischoff if the majority of you guys genuinely think I shouldn't use Heyman.
