Obviously anything that Wolfy writes is at the top of my interest pile, so his SummerSlam is the first thing on my radar. I still browse other threads from time to time, but I'm very particular in my tastes, so it's hard to please. That's a negative on my part btw.

I've given up on any other bookers I used to like returning, so I just hope some new ones emerge to replace them for my own selfish reading pleasure
Good job I'm working on a little something then.

...yeah right.

I've been out the past three months or so, any big shows posted or PPV's worth looking into?

Here's a little question that might open up some discussion. The topic is women's wrestling.

How do you guys feel about watching it, reading it, booking it, and writing it?

First off I'll just say my favorite wrestling promotion of all time is AJW also known as All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling. Personally I love good women's wrestling because a lot of times, female wrestlers are better than the guys. I also like the fact that with a women's division you can get a nice mix of styles such as heavyweights, technical wrestlers, high flyers, etc. which all allows for some interesting combinations. What I don't like to watch is all these T&A shows that, that is just demoralizing and a waste of talent. If the person can wrestle I want to see them wrestle, if the person can talk then I want to hear them talk, if they can do both then that is great, if they can't do either and they can't work backstage then why are they in the wrestling business in the first place?

Reading it is really held on the same standard for me as anything else. If you can give me a reason to want to see the people have a match and make me care about the match and you have the respect and ability to make it all work then I love reading it. A lot of times though, I've seen people just not really care for their women's division and thus not be able to really book or write it well.

As far as booking women's wrestling, I never really got to get as far as I would like into angles with them in order to fully enjoy the experience, but the times that I did get the chance and with all the ideas that I came up with in advanced booking was always fun.

Writing a women's match is always fun for me because of the great talent that allows it to be an easy match to write. As is the same case with booking women's wrestling, I never really had the chance to write it as much as I'd like to, but I have promised myself that if I were around for one last tournament that I would definitely use that opportunity to write some women's matches.

I don't care for women's wrestling. There, I said it But if you can make it work, by all means go for it. It'll be hard establishing the characters though because I doubt many people know the Japanese wrestlers.

Cannot be bothered to book it as I find women's wrestling to be boring though that could be because the only women I watch wrestling wise are from WWE.

Haha. Well like I said before, I'm done with writing BtBs myself. This is more of a social experiment to see if the community has changed any on the subject over the last 7 years. Doesn't look like it yet. As for writing with Japanese wrestlers for a tournament, I don't think that's too hard seeing the success of my friend Jushin Liger in past tournaments.

I enjoy writing the women as characters and intermingling them with the male storylines.

I feel the females add something but booking them in matches can be a bit of a chore unless you have given them interesting characters and mixing them up with the males helps that, storyline wise.

If the quality of the writing is poor (whether it be my own or someone elses) I'd rather they/I just discluded them. I'd rather not read/write womens wrestling at all than read/write a poorly executed women's segment/promo/match/feud.

I'd say I have mixed feelings about this. Mixing them with the guys can be a bad thing and a good thing. I love managers and such if it works for the people in, but at the same time we shouldn't make that a crutch to be able to get over the girls if they have the talent to get over without male wrestlers involved. Plus it is just my own booking philosophy which is definitely probably different than a lot of peoples which is to keep things simple and not try to involve a ton of people in an angle.

Yep, as I said, I just reading it based off the same criteria I give for anything. 1) Build two interesting characters. 2) Give a reason they want to beat each other up. 3) Write a match that gives closure for the angle and either lets both of them go their separate ways for now or allows a new chapter to begin. It really is that simple to make a good angle, the hard part is getting from 1 to 2 to 3 without dropping the ball or making things complicated, which I see as the problem with writers both in BtB and in American Wrestling today.

I applaud anyone that can write women wrestling/storylines effectively. I have no pleasure in it whatsoever. Guess that makes me sexist.
