The Wrestling Observer talked about WCW under going a 'Reboot' on the upcoming Monday Nitro. The Wrestling Observer talked about WCW hiring The Writer. The Wrestling Observer talked about Nitro at 2 Hours, Thunder at 1 Hour and the decision to scrap Spring Stampede, Slamboree and the Great American Bash. The Wrestling Observer talked about Goldberg, Kevin Nash, Sting, Diamond Dallas Page, Sid Vicious, Lex Luger, Buff Bagwell, Ric Flair and, of course, Hulk Hogan deciding to sit on the sidelines for whatever reason. Convenience says The Writer.

 

Other news is that WCW is retiring all Championships in favor of new Championships and new Championship lineages. The World Heavyweight Championship, the United States Heavyweight Championship, the World Tag Team Championships are expected to return. A brand new Cruiserweight Championship and two Major Tournaments are expected to be added at some point during the year. An interesting note is that the Cruiserweight Division is expected to be renamed.

Just something that jumps to me when I read your shows and stuff....I'm assuming that the workers you're referring as "gray" are tweeners, right?

Correct. I prefer using Gray to Tweener.. something bothers me about that word.

 

I hope people don't mind the way I am writing these posts out. I really did not enjoy writing my stuff out before I changed it all up. I kinda found comfort with the all red everything and spoiler and the way the shows details are listed. I could probably add more detail to make it look better. A note to readers is that the times I list for my matches such as 3:30 or 4:30 etc are not really accurate. Its more along the lines of it went on and it ended around that point.

 

​I ultimately decided against some of my previous work because I didn't really know where to go with it. It's one of the reasons I have no Dave Bautista anymore. I have plans for him eventually. Him and others. I plan on adding some Original Characters through the Power Plant too. I should also start writing some of the matches out a bit better. Add certain spots and what not.. still trying to find my comfort because I don't want this to suck loool.

 

I have been watching WCW 2000 all over again. This is my second time now. I'm trying to see who I can use to fill air time with and if any angles grab my attention. One from April actually did catch my eye and I kinda liked the idea of recreating the story and that was with Shawn Stasiak and Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig. Russoism just hurries that storyline the fuck up in real life and I feel bad for both Hennig and Stasiak. The worst criticism I can give to Stasiak is that he is mostly uninspiring. He was young though and looked good and was certainly passable in the ring.

 

To end.. I have no experience as a booker or a writer. I could never do this in real life. I have no idea if a Nitro and Thunder that's half and half with wrestling and non wrestling stuff is a good idea. I try to look at the situation from a 2000 standpoint and think about how I could go about countering the WWF Juggernaut. I can only think of putting a balance on what airs. I am not using TEW to help me either. This is all in my head and I don't really know if my television and attendance would be what I am claiming it to be.

 

Thanks for reading.

There's a reason why it's called fantasy booking. Don't  do anything you don't feel like doing with that series. Write it how you want it with who you want. As long as you like what you're putting out, it's all that matters. :)
