No, but should I ever got to that time (highly unlikely, it's ages away) I would stop using him and run RAW as a tribute show for Benoit the wrestler that we all saw and loved.



Actually, the tournament failed before that, really. The round we were up to only had one set of matches judged, or so I was told, and I had done my judging. For the record, I judged your match against Shock, which makes it amusing seeing the banter between you two over the past few years since I actually know who won. I might even have the critiques somewhere still as well.

Tournaments CAN work, but it's very unlikely for it to happen because you have to have so many people pulling their weight and not backing out. I guess it all depends about whether or not you have faith in people to follow through on their word.
There was... a winner?

I must know now.

I didn't know this. Fair enough.

Now, the fact that you know who won... and you decided to keep this a secret? Given the fact that hours upon hours of my time has been wasted bantering with Shock... when you could have just told us who won? Excuse me while I go and bang my head repeatedly against a table.

The Melvisboy/Shock rivalry can finally come to a close.

Damn you, James. If one of us had just won, I wouldn't have ended up with the banter, and I wouldn't have had to become friends with the bastard. End it. End it now.

Also... Christian/Swagger wrestlefest > Styles/Hardy spotfest in a cage. Yeah, that's right, I'm crackin' out the insults again. If he wins this, my 2010 Breakout Booker of the Year thing gets totally cancelled out.

You probably won anyway. My psychology was a bit dodgy, tbh, what with the whole Christian kicking out of a Gutwrench after Swagger had been working the back, etc... I shouldn't have had him hit it. Nonsensical. Guess it showed Christian's desire, but otherwise, not a good move.

Shock's match
Melvisboy's match

For anyone who wants to compare the two themselves. Match-up of the tournament based on the hype - only beatable by PatMan/Spartanlax, though Spartanlax no-showed. I suppose that's another strike against tourneys under the 'how much faith do you have in judges/participants' column.

Alright, question, this probably has been asked a million times.

What is the normal WPM for pay per view matches? I've heard it range from 150-250, so I was thinking 200 would not be too bad...

Quite a few people use 200. I use 150. Do whatever you want.

Indeed.

The Tournament failed largely because of -

Me. I'm the principle reason it failed. I'm always in over my head. The first round and the preliminary round went incredibly smooth, actually, but once the second round hit, my judges started dropping like flies. Things came up for some of 'em, and that was that. Also, someone no-showed their match and I gave 'em another chance (Sparty, where are ye?). He still didn't show, so I said fuck it. Unfortunately, only one Judge gave me their scores. The rest were too busy, and I didn't have the gall to ask anyone else to help me, so I was swamped.

Unfortunately, I'm the type of person who never likes to ask for help on anything. So, I thought I was up to it, then my erratic tendencies started to come back up again, and I vanished. I will admit - sometimes, the drama did get to me, so I said "fuck it." I came back, said I was gonna run it again. Lo and behold, I don't. From now on, don't count on me for anything. Learn your lessons, as I've learned mine.
