Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

commentary for me is a weak point I have as little as I can because it is something that usually is hard to be in character for me.

Match writing skills, especially the moves and all

that's due to the fact that when i was regularly watching wwe, i would watch all promos and all and whenever a match started i forwarded it to the ending part and now i dont even watch wwe so dont know what are the moves of current wrestlers

Yes, it's a Kanefan thread

I've only heard bad things about Kanefan, should give me a couple of laughs I presume? :P

But on to your question, probably originality. I hear everyone giving out the advice...

"READ WOLFY, READ LEGEND, RED BKB"

And I do exactly that. I read their shows and ideas start flooding in but as soon as I put pen to paper I realise that they're almost carbon copies. Obviously there would be differences but there would be so many similarities that anybody who reads the better bookers' shows would know that the idea would be based around them. Judging by your old thread though, 619, I doubt that's a problem for you. :P

So yeah, I'd say that's mine. Because of that I kind of lose focus, motivation and it just spirals down to me pressing the big, bad delete button.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Answering an earlier quetsion about a WWF thread, the only good WWF thread I ever saw around here was Szumi's one from 99. It was only around from WM 15 to Backlash of that year which was 4 Raw's a few Heat shows and the Backlash PPV but it was high quality stuff.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I find writing the matches the hardest part. Because you can have a great storyline going on, but if the matches are not to a good enough standard, no one is going to care about the story.

Purely as a booker, I think my feuds could be a lot more interesting than they are. I think the actual writing is definitely one of my weaker points as a whole as well, especially with the commentary.

Besides match writing which I am awful at...people actually being interested in reading/reviewing my BTB every so often. I don't know if that is a weakness or not, as a booker but the day that one of the big players in my BTB review my stuff (on a regular basis), or say I did something well, will be the day I feel like I accomplished something because that makes me feel like I am a household name in BTB.

I also don't want this to sound like I fishing/begging for people to review my stuff it is just an opinion/goal I have always had in general.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

It's fine to want people to read your thread and give feedback.

If you were going to do a major stable in your thread and had one space left to fill, would you prefer to have Cody Rhodes or Ted Dibiase Jr in it?

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

With their gimmicks still the same as IRL? If so, Dibiase because I feel Cody's gimmick is too good for him to be in a stable with someone.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I still kind of like the idea someone brought up once of the Rhodes/Kane tag team with them both being 'freaks'. I always like to try and have a good tag division so that team actually interests me. Plus I've always liked the big guy/little guy combo.
