The film Glengarry Glen Ross, one of my all time faves, is basically just one stream of guys cutting absolutely money promos on each other. This one from Big Al probably the highlight:

Also, if anybody has even seen the Thick of It there are blow away "promos" in every show Malcolm Tucker gives someone a huge bollocking.

Thinking about it, The Thick of It might be my fave show ever. Certainly has the best put down lines in the history of television as well as the best swearing.

GhostFace Killa from Wu Tang cut a promo on Action Bronson, it was pretty entertaining to me.

Parv bringing up Mamet through GGR makes me think about promotions as booked by other screenwriters...

 

Aaron Sorkin: A really intense version of early RoH/early EVOLVE. A babyface would be the first one to break the Code of Honor as political protest.

Neil LaBute: Creative peak ECW. No qualifications there.

Todd Haynes: Toned down JCP. Baby Doll becomes the promotion's biggest star.

Eli Roth: CZW at its most Lobo/Zandig-est. Trent Acid and Jimmy Rave as the wide-eyed babyface stars.

Not a promo per se, but I saw a quote today that was totally lifted from wrestlers criticizing fans/critics.  Someone in this Chase Utley controversy came out & said that unless you were/are a middle infielder you have no right to second guess or criticize what was done there.  So yeah, not just you never stepped on a baseball field, but you had to have played middle infield to comment on this play.

For those of you in the US: there are youtube subtitles in case that you don't understand ANYTHING.

 

The "there's going to be three hits in the fight" line is tremendous and would actually be great for a wrestling promo.
