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.
Yeah I'm the opposite with the involving alot of people in a angle thing.

I love booking stables and stable wars.

Plus I just like a busy show where there is always something happening with heels hating faces, faces hating heels, heels hating heels, faces hating faces.

It can be a little messy when done wrong but when done right it's a very rewarding writing/reading experience.

I just really like booking a grey world where everyone is out for themselves. Like Hamlet, one good guy in a world of backstabbers and liars.

Yep. I can respect different philosophies on booking.

I agree that stables and stable wars can be done well when handled well. When I say I don't like a bunch of people getting involved I mean stuff like wrestle X comes and beats up wrestler Y. Wrestle A gets involved to fight wrestler X. Wrestler X gets Wrestler B to fight Wrestle A. Wrestler C comes along and joins the thing we aren't sure whose side he's on. Wrestle X turns on Wrestler A and Wrestler C comes after Wrestler X, but Wrestler X still doesn't get along with Wrestler Y, but Wrestler B is paying off Wrestler X. Haha.

I tend to think more traditionally along the lines of pre-Attitude Era America or...basically any other country's past and current style of booking. Differentiate the characters, build them up, we got a bad guy (or a group of 2+ baddies) or we just have a dominant guy who seems like he just can't be beaten, we bring in the good guys or the underdog, we got these two set to collide at the Pay-Per-View because either there is heat building up here or the good guys/underdog has something to prove or the bad guys/dominant guy has done something evil to them and now they are here to get payback. We just keep hyping and hyping up this match, then the PPV comes and we get this match we've been waiting to see, this be the climax of an amazing feud and I want to see it!

I'm not really into making a grey world with booking because I want there to be a clear guy that I want to see win and I want there to be a clear guy I want to see lose. Of course there will always be a small section of the audience who cheers for a guy whoever they are just because they like them and they boo a person whoever they are just because they don't like them. The majority will most likely side with with face or the underdog though and will boo the heel or they get tired of seeing someone on top so they want to see that guy go down.

Like I said, I can definitely respect your opposing view and I do, I'm just traditionalist and sports oriented when it comes to professional wrestling which makes it so I come into conflict with more Attitude Era style booking.

After reviewing Kintaro’s Great American Bash pay per view, which after reading, was one of his most highly anticipated pay per views on his pay per view calendar, I must say that after reading that pay-per-view that it was flat out awesome. Every pay per view I see in this thread is just great. The Great American Bash was a great show, the booking bar none was off-the-charts. Way better than the original pay per view of The Great American Bash 2004 in real-life. This pay per view was just simply entertaining. 10/10 is my rating for this show. Every match was enjoyable, a lot of classic matches on this ppv including Edge vs Kurt Angle, Undertaker vs Mordecai and Eddie Guerrero vs Booker T.

This is definitely one of the best pay per views I’ve ever read on this btb and I recommend everyone to check this one out. Now I can't wait for his Raw pay per view which is Vengeance because of some of the matches like Benoit vs Jericho, Rock vs Orton just to name a few!!!!

WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX if anything I would recommend it

If we aren't counting ECW threads as indy then I'd say this is the most successful one I know of, but there might of been a more successful one since. http://www.wrestlingforum.com/booker...or-do-die.html

I completely forgot about Spart's ROH BTB. Just looking at that BTB and seeing the names leaving comments makes me sad for all the great posters we lost in this section.

Does anyone find that when they're free they lack motivation to write, but when there are essays to be written, you suddenly get an urge to book?

True that before my coursework was done I wanted to write. Now I can't be bothered

Has there ever been a BTB here based on the IDOM game scenarios?
