Haha...nooooooooooo my utter distaste for WWE's and Impact Wrestling's current products ruined! But yeah, I can see how that could muddy things up if the criteria was so loose that I could be writing a crazy Joshi match where every finisher is hit before the match ends and then someone else had a WWE match where usually the match ends after 1 or 2, rarely 3 finishers. But I guess we will have to wait and see.

I guess so, but i'm just hoping that the criteria isn't TOO strict, to the point that it restricts creativity and individuality. After all, we all have different tastes in wrestling and I think that those tastes and preferences should be given the chance to be showcased. I understand how judging say a Mysterio/Cena 2011 match and then an Flair/Steamboat 89 match can be very difficult for the judges, but I really do dislike the idea of restricting the writers TOO much.

I wouldn't mind criteria such as; The match has to be X amount of minutes, it has to be a 1 v 1 match, has to end cleanly etc. But I really don't like the idea of it being like "Your match has to be John Cena vs. CM Punk in a Steel Cage match with CM Punk going over after an Elbow Drop from the top of the steel cage".

I'm not expecting anything like that, but that's what I meant by criteria. I obviously know there are going to be guidelines and such.

I highly doubt it will be like that, would be a dumb move on the part of KingRo to make the tournament like that. I think it will be like you said originally, the task be like - write a 6 man tag, or, write a triple threat, or, write a Ladder match... etc. with teh wrestlers, time frame, arena etc. up to you, still leaving you with some form of creativity.

If the type of match/number of competitors/type of promo style be the case of stipulations then that should be pretty easy to work around.

Also: Yes come on KingRo!!! I'm trying to be patient, but sheesh, I haven't written forever!

Hmmm. I wouldn't like there to be too strict of a criteria, some freedom at least. I'd hate it if I had to write something that was more current because I'm not a big fan of doing this, I'm more of a late 90's ECW/WCW or an early 2000's WWF/E type of writer as opposed to modern stuff but, I guess that's how it goes.

Thats why normally in most tournaments up until now you could pick the wrestlers/time frame and what happens/results of it but to make it easier to compare the two peices of work and judge, there type of match/promo is decided if it's a normal match or some sort of stiplation. Which should leave enough room for creativity.

I love how one small comment turned into a big discussion about how restrictive the stipulations will be when there hasn't even been any signs of any strict restrictions. When KingRo posts the tournament thread, I'm sure things will clear up for those who are worried.
