Just gonna' leave some brief notes on the PPV, easing myself in to the FUN~! that is feedbacking. First off, I'm actually glad that not only you're sticking around with this whole booking thang', but you've also chosen to come back to this thread, which from what I remember, you have produced your best work in. The reason I say this is because not only were you churning out shows pretty quickly, IIRC, but it was also obvious that you were having great fun in doing so and it shown in the quality of your work - Whether that be through you loving the company, roster and time period, or whether it be the easy schedule of a 1 hour show. Whatever it is, it seems to be working for you and I'm glad to see you back with this, moreso than if you tried something different.
Anyway, this won't be feedback, just my thoughts, I guess.
I apologise if I can't quite remember everything heading in to the PPV.
Rhino defeating Sandman, in my opinion, was the easiest match on the card to predict - Although, that isn't exactly a bad thing. With Cyrus at his side, Rhino is damn-near unstoppable and the first PPV in to the thread, I highly doubted you were gonna end his run as champion when it has the potential to not only be a great run in terms of fun feuds and top matches, but also putting someone over big time in the future - Someone more marketable and with greater potential than Sandman, although I do love him. Good to see a good showing from Sandman though, as he definitely has a place in the upper-midcard and main event, just not champion, in my opinion.
Interesting to see the result of Lynn/RVD, as I know 99.9999% of people on the forum would choose Van Dam over Lynn - However, it makes a lot of sense, given the nature of this BTB and the fact that you haven't just injected ECW with a shit load of money. RVD, being one of, if not the biggest star, on the roster would probably cost a pretty penny - A pretty penny ECW doesn't have and the WWE does. Now, you may be swerving us and RVD could find a loophole somewhere, but I highly doubt you'll be a dick like that (
) and Van Dam will go on to greener pastures. I don't have a clue where Lynn will go however, given his alliance with Cyrus and Rhino, I doubt he'd challenge for the title, despite a victory of this magnitude warranting exactly that. Possibly Sandman? Who knows - But brave decision here, and is definitely intriguing as you move forward with this thread.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, your best work in this thread has been with CW Anderson, so naturally this was the selling point of this PPV, to me, and could have easily main evented the show without any complaints from myself, and I'm personally glad that if one match had to be written out in full, it was this
Now I've never really watched a lot of ECW matches, and every company has their own distinct style of matches so I'm not all that familiar with the CW style (other than the weapons and such, but I consider that more of a gimmick than a style) but this match was top notch, IMO. You managed to portray the violence and the hatred between the two without going to spotfesty and too many bumps, which is great, and you made best use out of the bumps you did include. Once again, another brave decision having CW pick up the victory, but it's one that I admire. But I also understand you did it because this feud is far from over given the post-match ongoings. What I said about it being obvious you enjoy writing this project, it is proven by how you write Anderson - I've only ever seen one match from the guy - and even that was an ROH tag team match - but yet I feel like I'm so familiar with him.
With the three marquee "main events" out the way, just a few brief comments about the rest of the card.
Nova going over Chris Chetti is pretty standard, although I would have liked to have known the finish, seeing as the majority of the section are very unfamiliar with ECW and wouldn't know any finishing moves etc. But whatever, it's nitpicking. Now that I've seen this, you could possibly stall on Lynn going up the card and just give him a small, filler feud with Nova? God knows, but you've opened up a lot of options by having Lynn win. I don't know what to expect from Nova, either.
I'm glad to see the titles of Doring and Roadkill, and I wouldn't have minded whether it was The Impact Players or The Unholy Alliance who took them from them. The latter two teams are definitely the two best you have in the company and would definitely form a good "base" for a tag division, although I'm of the understanding that Tajiri was MASSIVELY over in ECW, so a rise up the card for him as a singles guy wouldn't be completely out of the question, I guess. I imagine Doring and Roadkill will go for their titles again. Finally, Ki and Kash
i can imagine it being a top match, despite Ki's inexperience at this point. Surprised to see Kash lose, but I've never imagined him being a credible dude, but I could be wrong. Would make for a good match, I imagine.
Overall, I don't have any complaints. The booking was brave, and whether people like it or not, you have to respect it, and by being brave and going down different routes, you've left a lot of possibilities open with regards to future feuds and matches. Obviously it's a shame about it not being in full blah blah blah, but if anything, I'm just glad you're back with this project.
