If you're worried that people won't give you as much attention or enjoy it as much if you really do write recapped matches, don't be. The idea is that you enjoy it, THEN start to worry about what people think, and improve from what they didn't like in the show or whatever. People will not mind, honestly, if you recap the matches, as long as the booking (and the promos, etc) are of a good standard. Quality is what matters.

I nominated you as Most Improved. I don't know if I was the only one who did, but over the course of your thread with OML (which I'm glad you're returning to) I saw you really improve, and it became a really good standard. If your matches are short, who cares. Just stick to good quality booking, that's the main thing. Move on to bigger matches when you're ready, or when you've had more practice. No-one will judge you or think of you as a worse booker.

Melvisboy - one upping TKOW's non-abusive advice. Awww yeah. <3

I'm not surprised people moan about about match writing. Nowadays fans moan about watching matches on a wrestling show. You'd never guess stories are told through matches.

Yeah, pretty much.

I'm proud of the fact I was once touted as one of the best match writers, because that's the important thing imo. Promo's are meant to supplement it all.

On that note, look out for a PWG/DG:USA/CHIKARA spinoff.

coming soon fyi.

I think some people just donít have the time. If itís pay-per-view, fair enough, Iíll watch it, but Iím sure Iím not the only who skips through matches on Raw or SmackDown because they donít have the time (or the patience, maybe) to sit through the dull stuff. I confess thatís what I did with Raw last night, even missed out Sheamus/Morrison IV, even though I hear it was pretty good. Itís a shame, but I didnít have all that much choice. Though, I wonít complain about having to watch a match if I do have the time, seeing as they do indeed tell the story that (most of the time) the feud has been leading up to.

Match writing isnít hard. It just takes a bit of commitment to stick through it, imo, especially if you canít really be bothered because you donít like the guys in the match or something similar. Once you get going with a match, it can be great fun. Plus the sense of satisfaction you get from writing a really good, long match that you know you'd enjoy watching on TV or if you know it would keep someone watching. If someone doesnít have all the time in the world, thereís no point writing out all the boring stuff in a match from a weekly show though, they should just recap it.

I know its a very noobish question, but i'd just like to gather people's opinions.

How do you transition between segments?

I mean, without a commercial break in between the two segments, and its not one that the commentators can introduce such as an interview segment with Josh Matthews

I mean as in, the cameras catch up with "X" in the parking lot.

I just cut away after the current segment has died down.

Wouldn't make a whole lot of sense for him to start again, because his character has evolved so much since then. If he ever started again though I'd say as a heel, but sporadically. Also, the whole PG thing might limit him in what he says.

Who would work well with Joey Styles as a co-commentator in 2002?
