Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

This may sound strange but I think people like DC should go in, now don't get me wrong or think this is spitting in the face of people who book consistantly unlike him but they have helped the site in other places not just posting a show, he is a legend around here. I think guys like him should be achnowleged for other parts of the section and their constant contribution/ hopefuly someone understands what I mean and agrees.

Personally I'd love to see DC in the HOF, I have such respect for that guy; He tells it the way he see's it and he doesn't sugar coat anything. If he thinks you suck, he says so.

Some people just don't have the heart to be harsh and brutally honest when they need to be, DC has no problem what so ever doing that and that can be extremely beneficial to new bookers and even some established ones.

Plus he's a damn fine booker as Le Chronicles and his sadly short lived ROH BTB prove.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

DC is brilliant, a top guy and a very good all round booker and I cannot believe I forgot to mention him in my earlier post

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Is it cowardly to recap you're last show before a ppv ?

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I'm not sure it's cowardly but it is sort of lazy. On the other hand there's no point forcing yourself to write a show that you don't want to. If the recaps are substantial enough I doubt too many people will care anyway.

When it's the last show that's going to try & sell the PPV, you need to give it your best. I'm not saying you can't do it with a recap as some recaps are very detailed, but when you've been doing full promos since the start, yeah it looks lazy to change that.

I agree. I think if you've written this far in full, you might as well finish off the hype with a killer send-off show before the PPV. Obviously however, if you feel you're gonna get demotivated by writing out the last week of shows, then just recap them and get on to the good stuff. I actually had the same problem - after moving really slowly towards the Rumble, I really wanted to hit the PPV already, so I just powered through my last three shows in the final week and got to posting the preview. Use the PPV as motivation to write the last couple of shows really well.

Though once again, I'll agree with X-Power and say, if the recaps are good enough, we'll get what you're going for anyway. Personally, I'd want it in full. If you can't be bothered, recap it. Simple.

Sharapova's nothing. Don't see the fuss. Even the grunt does nothing for me.

Kirlienko all the way! Then there's Ivanovic & Wozniacki too. I'd take Sharapova over the Williams brothers though.

The Australian Open doesn't make any difference to BTB. Just take the time you need to make the show the best you can. Don't rush the show up for the sake of it! Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy!
