Do you think you could do it over a short period of time or would it be too long of a project for a BTB... Just a thought, just wondering. Possibly thinking of doing something like this, but it looks like it'd take a while.
I always figured these things happen because of simple smart booking. I don't think it was ever intended for people to be 'masters' of things. Things just started to link together. Kind of like how 'The Streak' fell into the WWE's lap. They never intended to make him go undefeated at Wrestlemania twenty-five or so years ago. It was just good, smart booking that they then took advantage of and put together. Same with Edge and the TLC match, I figure. After a while, of course it gets deliberate when they're billed as the 'master of whathaveyou'.

But if you wanted to go the route you're referencing, absolutely it would take plenty of time and patience.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

^^^The plan has always been to post the results of the EoY Awards in the Newsletter itself, so it was always gonna be posted around mid-January sometime. That's still the aim. Also, kind of wanted to know the results of the Tourney before getting it up, too.

Apologies if any misunderstandings there.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I felt like mentioning this to get opinions. Sick Nick Mondo, who was forced to retire at 23 was always an interesting talent to me. CZW is generally a company i despise for the ridiculous lack of protection in it, causing way too many disgusting injuries, but Nick is someone i kinda saw something in. Nick's currently 32 i believe, so i considered in BTB having him come out of retirement but a play on things. The BTB is called National Wrestling Federation, so NWF Official Lanny Poffo would constantly check on him to make sure he doesn't bleed. Somewhat comical saying if he even has a nose bleed he's done. I was wondering if anyone who is aware of Nick's condition, if he could possibly wrestle if he took it lightly. (I couldn't find a lot of his actual injuries aside from back puncture wounds.)

I was very young when he retired so what I do know is based from stuff with I've read and listened to after seeing his matches and becoming a fan, thus researching him per se. Besides his last injury, the back puncture wounds that he suffered at Tournament Of Death 2 in 2003, the majority of his injuries were minor - I say minor, I mean broken wrists, grade one concussions, lacerations etc. Based on the accumulation of his injuries plus the severity of his final injury, I'd say he could probably work an extended programme (ala. Rock vs. Cena) with very few matches. Wrestling every week or even every month, however, wouldn't be realistic whatsoever.

Although, I would love to read some Mondo matches based in modern day, just to simply read how their opponents would take advantage of his previous injuries and whatever, could definitely make for an interesting dynamic in matches and add several layers to the feuds and the matches themselves, similar to HHH vs. HBK at Summerslam 2002 and the way Triple H targeted Shawn's back, for example. So from a personal standpoint, I'd love to see it, and I wouldn't say it was impossible. I presume it's much more of a lifestyle choice by Mondo rather than a life necessity, if that makes sense.

Thanks. I did have the idea of it being dramatic. Where he wants to wrestle but he's very limited. Like attempting to use weapons then throwing them down and just shaking his head. He wouldn't wrestle a lot, just being tested gradually by Lanny Poffo. I did have an idea for him to face Cliff Compton, who's currently feuding with Bob Holly stating that he's the current bully of pro wrestling. Trying to have Mondo overcome a hardcore opponent.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I feel that too many people push Rob Van Dam and Mr. Kennedy into the World Heavyweight/WWE championship position... Has anyone else noticed that in nearly every thread they are the "main attraction" of the card or the World/WWE Champion?

Read nearly every WWE thread ever made, and it's the same handful of talent at the top all the time.

Not exactly, but I see what you mean. But I'm saying that in 99% of threads right now RVD is either the champion or number one contender.
