Sorry, I should have been more specific. I mean how they were in 2008, a little while after Ted's debut.

Ha, Kane the tag team whore. I think that could work though, I tend to like Kane's promos.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I've always thought that Kane was a solid worker and in the right environment, even better than that.

Rhodes can carry himself as a singles competitor, DiBiase is mister bland and benefits greatly from being a part of a group.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

My biggest weakness is my writing. I don't put much effort into the writing of my shows, and instead just do whatever will make me finish them quicker. Actually hoping to change this pretty soon.

I'm the opposite of you. In fact, the mark of a good writer is doing much with so little. I'm not a good writer. Purple prose is actually frowned upon and I overly rely upon it, along with vivid descriptions. I struggle with editing and cutting my material down to the bare minimum, but when I do, I'm not happy with it. It's probably why I have not finished a show in quite some time.

Booking, however, is very easy for me.

Yes, it's a Kanefan thread

And a bit of a discussion question for everyone else. What do you think, as a booker/writer, is your biggest weakness? Not neccesarily parts of your thread (i.e. a weak tag division), just some things you as a booker recognize you're not strong in?
Reading through that thread, I noticed KaneFan had turned Michael Cole heel. The guy was clearly a visionary, wise beyond his spelling ability.

I give him credit where it is due and he had some alright ideas, his feuds weren't that bad and were creative but the guy had problems with execution and putting it on paper as well as being underconfident and always thinking that it was the end of the world to get a bad review or criticism, he would always start threads with - "if this fails I fail". "this is my last attempt at a thread lets hope it sticks" and things like that. If he wasn't so worried about things like that and just got into writing I am sure he could have improved and been above average.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

: @Wolfy

I realized I never even answered my own question. My biggest weakness would probably have to be organization and some promo work. I can have plans for something and in the process of writing a show, the whole thing can go go 180. That makes me inconsistent as a booker, I would think. Might need to organize a bit better, on my part.

As for Kanefan, didn't really mean to sound like I was jumping on that bandwagon. He's not the greatest booker to have ever lived, but he was probably my only e-friend (I guess is the term) I had 'round these parts for a long time. That and I was just looking for any excuse I could to post that brtual review Szumi gave him.

Another discussion question, I suppose - who is one character/persona that is very difficult for you to write for...? Whether it be a match with them, charictarization, promo talk, etc..?

I'll answer this for myself and say Triple H. Just never clicks with him. And you guys...?
