Can you stop changing your sig as well. A few hours ago it was ECW now it's an Invasion. Make up your mind and write, dammit.

I wouldn't blame him, I went from a Created promotion to WWE and now Created

Kennedy, whilst I find him monotonous, repetitive and boring in real life, is decent at best. But I can understand why people like him, due to his smarmy attitude and whatever, so I understand the pushes for him but he's not my cup of tea tbh.
He's the standard for a egomaniac to say the least. People may not agree, but he holds a crowd, has the attitude and wasn't pushed as far in WWE as he was in TNA(World Championship).

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

As far as Indie stars in a WWE BTB, the only recent one I can think of is Calum using TJ Perkins, and having him on PPV after being on TV for only a few weeks... Seems like a pretty good start for a relative unknown to me.

Not to toot my own horn but I'm setting something up with Shelton Benjamin in my thread. That's kinda different, right?

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Given the WWE change just about everyone's name when they sign them nowadays (Bryan Danielson, Tyler Black becoming Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins etc), what's the general opinion in BTB on what name to go with if bringing one of these people in? Do you use their Indy name or their WWE name? I ask because when I initially started using Mickie James, I brought her in under the name Alexis Laree, which she had used pre-WWE, but it seemed to lead to a few people asking who the hell she was, and in part (along with input from KING.) led to me finding a way to change her to her more well known name.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

It wouldn't personally bother me. All I would do in that case, if I was unfamiliar, is just go to Google and do a search.

But that's just me.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Flux - My mind is constantly changing. Don't expect to see anything from me for a long while.

Wolf Beast - It depends on who it is. If it's a big indy name like Bryan Danielson, Tyler Reks, Chris Hero etc then I see no reason not to keep them with their indy names tbh. I'm sure most, if not all who read threads in these parts are well aware of who those big indy guys are.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Wolfy - Just put a note at the end or beginning of the thing saying that what it is, or pictures of them quite often so we know. Basically what you're doing with Nick Nemeth AKA Dolph Ziggler. But if you have no pictures just put in the news & notes as a footnote something like "Note from the booker: Alexis Laree is Mickie James, I am just using her name previous to WWE."

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

As long as the new name isn't ridiculous - For example, PAC being called Adrian Neville - then I don't mind. Alexis Laree, Daniel Bryan, Antonio Cesaro, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose aren't ridiculous names. I don't think it matters much, tbh. If somebody doesn't know a wrestler by their independent name, and they were invested enough in to your product, then they would make the effort to do a five second wiki search, like KURTANGLEFAN123 said.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Ever since I read Szumi's awesome WCW thread, and the way the behind the scenes stuff panned out, I've always wanted to have a thread that at times allowed the readers to have some sort of input. As part of my backstory for my current thread, I've written out a press conference. I was thinking of at the end of the content that I need to get out in the press conference, having some question time. Rather than making up the questions myself, I was thinking of notifying readers beforehand, and allowing them to post or pm the questions they want answered. Just wondering what people thought of this idea as a whole, if I even explained it properly.
