Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

B.. Bu.. But everything is wrestling!

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

Yeah, I tend to also avoid deceased wrestlers, my mindset is very old guard BTB. There are some exceptions though where I have enjoyed threads with deceased wrestlers. Also I think it would be tasteless to use Amanda.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Although I haven't reached it yet, I've made a start on The Royal Rumble which will be my very first FULL PPV (Destination X in my TNA thread was recap). Obviously a full PPV is slightly intimidating, particularly for someone who has never done one before, and especially for it being one of the "big four" Pay-Per-Views. I know a few people have just recently finished their PPVs and a handful of others have completed full PPVs before, so any hints/tips/advice with regards to writing them?

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I know I haven't written a BTB pay-per-view, I have written several e-fed PPV's so I'd like to have some experience on the topic.

With a show like Royal Rumble, the matches are clearly more important. Segments are good but don't let them drag. Short to the point segments always work better in general but I'd specifically go with that for a Royal Rumble.

With the Rumble itself, try and keep the gaps between entrances the same as it keeps the match flowing well. For example, 200 words between entrances. I'd say it's fine to do a bit more description on big/important spots in the match but consistency is always key for matches where superstars are entering at consistent intervals and I actually find it's easier to keep a track of things if you try and keep to yourself to a limit. After the last guy enters, go wild with it.

Either way, Rumble is definitely a great show to be writing. Probably second only to a Mania. Best of luck with it.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I would say just to take your time with it.

With my first PPV all i wanted to do was get it up and out of the way, wasn't even thinking about the quality of the show itself and you can tell when reading it back. Just take your time and if there's something you don't like, don't post it. Go back and redo it to the standard you want it to be.

I have written quite a few full ppv's before things you want to make sure you do is make sure the matches don't drag on. If you get bored writing the match there is a good chance the fans will get bored reading it.

Also a trick I like to use is make sure your opening match is one you KNOW you can do really good with. It's ALWAYS good to have your opening match on the PPV to be a good, Fast paced match.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

This is the first time I've done a Royal Rumble match and it's quite difficult. I did really enjoy writing the match but there is so much action to cover, just a lot to write. Great spots, eliminations and so on. Took me ages to write this up. Have to rebook the worst Rumble ever and make it a good one. Struggled with the write up but got there at the end, will be up soon.

1)What are the most difficult gimmick matches do you guys think are to write up?

2)Thoughts on writing up a Rumble match? If you already have written one up, how did you find it?

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

For me the hardest gimmick matches to write up have been a Rumble Match, Lethal Lockdown and King Of The Mountain.

I did a rumble match probably about a year ago when my buddy and I did our own little booking project and it came out horrible I tend to lose track of people in battle royals & rumbles. The fact I don't really want to attempt another Rumble is 1 reason I have not done a WWE BTB yet but it is something I might attempt in the future.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Don't say that! I was planning on writing both of those in my BTB.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

In terms of expectations, contents and shock value, Falls Count Anywhere is a difficult match for me to write, especially on PPV's.

2)Thoughts on writing up a Rumble match? If you already have written one up, how did you find it?

I believe the rumble match will always be complex, whether 10, 20 or 40. But the thing about writing it is you have to write it in a way that you don't sound like a robot, or that you will bore people into only looking at who was eliminated. In the rumble, you can write better spots that you couldn't write in other matches usually (1 person eliminates 4 people)(The John Morrison spot in RR). So basically, the Rumble or any battle royal is a great topic to write on but a difficult match to keep in control so that you down make a reader bored.
