Guest Booker with JJ Dillon (DVD)
The most crucial aspect of pro wrestling's stability, its television, is explored here. The man who wrote WWE television beside Vince McMahon and Pat Patterson for years, JJ Dillon, joins us to explore the art and science of doing just that, writing wrestling televsion.
-When should a run-in be employed?
-How to use promos and packages?
-How does one choose a TV arena?
-What does it mean politically if Wrestler A makes the save for Wrestler B on TV?
We gave JJ Dillon a fictional pay per view supercard from the early 90's era and gave him one month of TV with which to advance the angles. See how JJ uses the weekly A & B shows, as well as a Saturday Night network special to build up the pay per view at month's end. He then books the results for that big card.
JJ shows us how to use just the right amount of exposure for select angles for the most effective build-up. The booker's job doesn't end there, as we hear about the very delicate practice of employing diplomacy in dealing with the "big egos/TV time" equation.\

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
IWA: MS - A Phenominal Invasion (2004)
Eddie Kingston vs Danny Daniels - ** 1/4
Decent opener, nothing really to write home about though.
Mickie Knuckles vs Traci Brooks vs MsChif - *
Pretty embarrassing and sloppy all around, especially since i've seen work from Knuckles and MsChif that leads me to believe they aren't completely worthless in the ring. Highlight of the match was Mickie Knuckles doing the "Tope con drop to the floor like a bag of cement", I laughed.
B-Boy vs "Spyder" Nate Webb - ** 1/4
I loathe B-Boy and i'm pretty surprised I actually watched this match, I mean seriously how many times in a match can you set up and miss the Shining Wizard, try making up your own spots for once B-Boy. Anyways, the general idea behind the match was how these two are on friendly terms but were still willing to go all out in a competitive match, worked to a point but still was nothing fantastic.
Tables/Falls Count Anywhere Match
Corp. Robinson & 2 Tuff Tony vs Mad Man Pondo & Cash Flo - * 3/4
I was pretty bored throughout watching this match as it was first of all pretty tame for a hardcore match and secondly was for the most part just aimless brawling. However there was a nice mid match double cross angle where 2 Tuff helped Pondo beatdown Corp. because of an alliance they had in Big Japan, and secondly Cash Flo does a pretty crazy leg drop through a table on the outside and pretty much ****'s himself up bad. I was a little impressed. Post match featured the first of 3 Ian Rotten promo's. Ian please, once is enough.
Steve Stone vs JC Bailey - 1/4*
Stone sucks, I'm not too familair with Bailey aside from a deathmatch or two i've seen him in but the only cool thing he did all match was hit an unsuspecting Jim Fannin with a suicide dive, in fact let me rephrase the only cool thing about this match was Fannin.
(Ok, so yeah as of right now I'm probably making this show sound like complete crap and tbh the first half of it was, but the second half of the show was possibly the finest 2 hours of non-TPI IWA: MS I've seen.)
Roderick Strong vs Arik Cannon - *** 1/4
Short, sweet and stiff. I know Cannon gets a lot of flack from a lot of people and perhaps deservedly so but he's always been one of the guys I inexplicably enjoy watching. To me this was a really fun match.
Alex Shelley vs Claudio Castignoli - *** 1/2
The kind of match that makes TNA fan's cry, because yes Shelley in fact is not treated as a jobber. Basically a nice exhibition with a little european style thrown in from two world class wrestlers.
AJ Styles vs Matt Sydal - **** 1/2
You'd think just by seeing who's in the match they'd be going crazy with the flying and highspots and shit but it wasn't the case. A lot of ground work as opposed to flying and the match did a really really good job getting the point across that while Styles maybe the larger and more experienced guy, Sydal's still a very really threat to AJ. And the build to when they actually get to the flashy highspots is great along with the build to Styles trying to hit the Styles Clash and how well Sydal has scouted it.
2/3 Falls Match
Chris Hero vs "American Dragon" Bryan Danielson - **** 1/2
Anyone who seriously thinks Hero isn't on the level of Danielson as far as wrestling ability needs to go watch this match right now, just awesome stuff all around from the limb work to how it builds on how Hero needs to get more agressive to put down the high caliber talent being brought into IWA (as Hero has been on a long losing streak), Arik Cannon's role in the match was a nice use of talent as well (and no he doesn't interfere thankfully). My only 2 true complaints are the finish of the 3rd fall is lame, and Ian has to yap for another 5 minutes after the match again.
IWA: MS Heavyweight Title Match
Petey Williams (c) vs CM Punk - ***
Williams is another guy I just don't like watching at all and everything he does just looks megafake, lame and or goofy. This wouldn't have been a "great" match either way but without the "Williams factor" as I plan to call it, I probably could have gotten away with saying it was good.
Overall Show Rating - *** (Good)
First disk of the show is pretty crap IMO aside from Strong/Cannon, but Disk 2 more than makes up for the shows weak start.
