Do you guys see a difference between a good booker and a good writer?

I do. I think that this section had become more of a "be the writer" than "be the booker" last time I was here. What I mean by that is; it is not necessarily being able to write great wrestling matches or word for word promos. But more about the overall concept of the match or the promo. For example; my WrestleMania I just posted had a match between Kurt Angle and Mr. Perfect, now there is no way a booker, IRL, would expect to write out move for move, what these two should do in a 20 minute match. A good booker knows to put these two in the ring, how long far, and what general story to tell.

Good Booker; makes it 20 minutes long, tells them to work with their strenghts and wrestle technically, make both of you look strong as I want a rematch later.

Bad Booker; gives it 5 minutes, wants Perfect to dominate and make Kurt tap out via his own Ankle Lock.


The difference between a good writer and a good booker, is that a good writer can actually write out that 20 minute match I mentioned above. However this leads me on to my second question..,

Do you enjoy reading good thread that done by a booker or one that is done by a writer?

My answer would be a thread by a good booker. I really can't be bothered read 4 pages of text to find out who won the 5 minute match between Kelly Kelly and Eve.

Booking and writing are equally as important as each other, IMO, and to be considered good at "Be The Booker" so to speak, you need to be good at both and aim to perfect both skills. What I mean by that is that in essence, the good writing part is used to put the good booking in to action. You can have the most interesting and exciting, yet logical, storyline to have ever been assembled; if you can't write the promos, segments and matches in an entertaining and captivating way to put over the storyline or feud, then it's practically useless.

The same can be said the other way round. You can be the best writer in the world; you understand the English languge perfectly and can entice the audience with your words, but if the words contain no substance or reason, then I may as well just go and read a dictionary and it kind of defys the point of booking.

What I'm trying to say through all of that you can't really choose one over the other. Not to say that you have to write 16000 word shows but logically, the more you write, the more you can show off and the more you can write well. If you focus primarily on one aspect of your work, then the audience you appeal to will become narrower and narrower.

There is a difference between a good booker and a good writer.

For example, I love both Wolfy and Legend. They are two of the best this section has seen as overall packages.

HOWEVER, in my opinion, Wolf, whilst his writing is strong, his booking is on another level. Legend on the other hand, his writing is second to none of anyone that has ever written here, with only WCW Rules coming close. That extreme writing skill has always trumped anything in a booking sense, and almost cancels it out, because of how well it is executed.

I almost completely agree with the point being made here. The one thing I disagree with you on, DeeCee, is that writing cancels out the booking.

It really depends on how you view things. Fair enough, from what you're saying, you prefer the writing over the booking (?) But it depends whether or not you look at the show that a writer produces and judge it according to its writing and your reading pleasure, or whether you judge it according to how it would work in performance. For instance, if someone has a talent at being able to write out dialogue and other elements of a show, but they book, for example, Funaki to win the world championship, it doesn't matter how good the writing is, it's never going to be considered good work. There's a lot of things involved like plausibility, logic etc but I've said my piece for now.

Gotta be honest, I just use the standard font on here...looks like Arial.

But Arial is my favourite so.....go figure.

I do like courier new, but it's hard on the eyes when reading blocks of text as we all tend to post here. (Hard on my eyes at least).

Terry Gyimah, I'm comin' for you *****

I loved how you started the show off with Jericho and Benoit in Jericho's hometown and the fact that they are talking about Benoit's DVD and then talking about Vengeance and just who will win their match for the World Heavyweight Championship since these 2 are tag team partners but also at the same time they are the World Tag Team Champions, some obvious tension between the 2 and during the opening segment it showed

Chris Benoit beating Batista just gives Benoit all the momentum in the world for Vengeance, but for Benoit I think his luck is about to run out because come Vengeance I think there will be a new World Heavyweight Champion and that Benoit's reign I think will come to an end as Jericho will be the one to end it, as for who I think will get drafted next week on RAW to Smackdown, it's possible Batista could get drafted and if that happens, Evolution gets busted up but as for Benoit I see him staying on RAW and starting a new rivalry with Jericho after he loses the title to Jericho this Sunday

Bischoff and Coach segment with Regal and Eugene was great, and then Bischoff telling Regal that his match with HHH at Vengeance will be a No-DQ match and Bischoff being so arrogant and so full of himself thinking he is going to beat Heyman next week on RAW during the 2004 WWE Draft Lottery, and that Bischoff has put Eugene in a match for next week's Draft Special and it will be against Matt Hardy of Smackdown and then tells Eugene not to let him down, and then Coach and Bischoff now having fun at Regal and Eugene's expense

Evolution accepting the challenge laid down by Cena's team for next week on the Draft Special, this is going to be great and then Orton and Flair seeing how angry Batista is and HHH and Orton and Flair the 3 of them trying to calm Batista down and then Orton and Flair promising that they will soften up Regal and Eugene for HHH and Batista was great

Regal and Eugene beating Orton and Flair by DQ was great as this loss doesn't really hurt Orton and Flair, but it also gives Regal and Eugene momentum coming into Vengeance, so that is always great

Teddy Long backstage segment with Bischoff was great, and I hope Teddy Long does get drafted to Smackdown because here on RAW he has been disrespected by the whole locker room and that on Smackdown he can manage superstars and take them to the top and then Bischoff will be truly sorry that he ever let Long get away and Coach worried that he could get drafted to Smackdown, and then Bischoff trying to reassure him and also that Trish will be back next week is going to be great but it is possible Trish could get drafted to Smackdown

HBK then cuts his promo on Flair and his match against him at Vengeance and then HBK talking about the draft and that if he should end up on Smackdown, that he will welcome it but whatever show he ends up on, RAW or Smackdown he is going to still do what he always does and that is steal the show and that at Vengeance I can just bet HBK will say that he will kick Flair's teeth down his throat but Flair I see him beating HBK at Vengeance

Jazz beating Lita was great too

And La Resistance beating Charlie Haas and The Dudleys, is great as it gives Rene Dupree momentum into his match at Vengeance for when he does face Charlie Haas

Bischoff and Heyman phone segment was great and that all the matches next week during the Draft Lottery will be inter-promotional matches RAW vs Smackdown and that their match of Bischoff vs Heyman will be a Lumberjack Match and it is possible that the GMs could even get drafted, can you imagine if Bischoff were drafted to Smackdown he then would have to work for Heyman he would have to work under him or if Heyman were drafted to RAW he then would have to work for Bischoff he would have to work under him

Chris Jericho beating HHH was great, awesome match-up all the way throughout and Benoit trying to help Jericho out during his match by getting involved and then almost costing Jericho the match but Jericho beating HHH anyways was great too, now the tension is definitely building between these 2 men now as they end up coming to blows after the match is over and they have to be separated by Eugene and Regal was great

And Randy Orton This Is Your Life segment was funny with Flair, I laughed my ass off all the way throughout especially the part with Orton RKOing his ex-girlfriend from high-school and then RKOing his Marine Corps commanding officer, and then we get to see Randy's father Cowboy Bob Orton on RAW, this is great and then The Rock interrupting all of this as Rock brings his father Rocky Johnson into it, and then HBK coming to interrupt all of this too was great, and then all of it turning into a huge brawl at the end was great
As good as Kintaro may be, and I'm not saying he isn't because I haven't really read his work other than a quick skim every so often, he can't be that frickin' good that every single part of his show was great? On top of that, every show he's ever made has been great according to this nonce. This may seem like a random post/rant, but I had to get it off of my chest, dudes a legit moron. And on top of that, he doesn't even say why he likes stuff, he just summarises what KINTARO HIMSELF FUCKING WROTE, and says it was great.

Great.
