No and that goes for most people on here. There is so many things bookers have to deal with and to be honest most people would have a nervous breakdown. You have to deal with egos of wrestlers, injuries, releases, and higher ups all screwing with your ideas. Also it is easy to have a good idea but to be able to use it and make it work is a completely different thing. Also being able to have longevity is hard as well. Most people would have writers block within weeks.
just drop most of the title belts and keep it simple and streamline, 'cause you know, you can do that
Those guys could get away with it because they had big names and Dixie was in awe of them. Everybody here would have the network and the Promotion on our backs the first time something goes wrong.
unless the network are gonna pull the plug just move on
lol, you guys are so out of touch with reality.
Most of this site would flame out in 2 months tops. Having 2 good ideas doesn't mean you can write a television show for a career or manage the personalities that come with every business and profession. Stick to the Be the Booker section and the daily "29 changes TNA should make" thread.
It's a learned skill for sure. Not everyone can do it. There's a million things to think about. For one, you can't always book what you want. Some people won't go for it, the wrestlers, the company, the TV execs. People get injured.
You have to book a few for yourself and a few for "Them." This is something all artist struggle with. What's your audience? Your audience might like things that you don't. How much should you cater to the public and how much of your booking should be based on your own self expression?
I like to think I'd be good at it. I understand story structure, I'm not dogmatic about the roles of pro wrestlers. I would love to play on old cliches. And more than anything, I would constantly be starting new angles and wrapping up old ones. I'd look at every month as a new chapter. Very few feuds would last more than one PPV.
But there's no way to tell, in the end. Except to get involved with the wrestling industry. I plan to start my own promotion at a later point in my life. But until then, it's fun to talk about.
1.the wrestlers are under contract just tel them to suck it up fuck off and do what they're told
2.injuries are bad but not definitive
3. like anyone should do just keep your options open
4. no-ones says you can't keep the wrestling shows and the tv shows on a separate continuity
wow continuity, that would make an interesting thread sometime
Lol at the people saying "yes" you're all smart marks on your computers just like me and everyone else on this message board.
Could I book TNA better than TNA? No and nobody else here could. Most people here have suggestions that consist of "Fire Hulk, Sting, Hardy, Angle, Bully and hire Kevin Steen and The American Wolves".
Perhaps. It's booking wrestling, not some overly complicated equation that takes the greatest minds in the world to assess. .
some wrestling apologists just cant deal with reality
lol @ theloneshark doing his gimmick in this thread.
lone shark is as shallow as they come
Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't realise that you had any clue who I am. Because clearly you don't.
I've no need to pretend anything, and green is such an ugly colour on you. If you had any idea what you were talking about, it'd be very obvious that I'm very aware of what I'm talking about.
not to mention vague and ambiguous like most over achieving people in the world
why would have i have to prove you're making it up? the burden of proof is on you. you're the one citing "your experience" all the time despite the fact that you've never once proven anything you claim is actually true.
if the burden of proof is on others then in that case i'm a former rasslin' writer, road agent and pro grappler too. not gonna reveal my identity either b/c i still work in Stamford.
dude unless this wannabe shows us some f***ing proof you're not going to get anywhere with him
