Also, nobody booking Ken Shamrock as mother FUCKIN' world champ really irks me as well.
Guess I know what not to do.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Question: Where do you guys get your ideas/inspiration from when you're creating and writing video packages? IMO, they're one of the hardest things to actually write, and I'm struggling on one at the minute, so any help would be appreciated.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I hate them.

It depends on the video package... is it for a match or a PPV? I think you have to have one specific theme throughout which is referred to at the beginning and the end. But they aren't a strong point of mine at all.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I just go off a theme for the PPV. Backlash - reactions and consequences... Judgment Day - day of reckong yadda yadda yadda.

Or I blatantly rip off video packages that guys like Wolfy, Mac and Legend have written in the past. I don't see the issue with it, since I never actually post them anyway.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I don't like writing video packages very much, tbh.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I don't like writing... period. I'm definitely more of a booker.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I never got what the problem was with recaps, if done right. I'm more of a booker than a writer. Then again, I've always believed Vince Russo's thoughts of 'entertainment > 'wrestling''.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I am more than happy to publicly state that I will never write an entire show in full again.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

People who write every show in full, good for you and kudos. I don't have the desire or dedication to do that.

I prefer great booking over good match writing.
