    Proper reviews to come later but those are some great promos for the Elimination Chamber so far. PAJ and Stevie have both proved they can make the most of this shot in my opinion.

    @Hifo - It was ok, except for the Gryphon color as the color used made it extremely hard to read.

    Yeah I was going to go back in and change that but I don't know if it's against the editing rule.

    King TE is sick and asked for a n emergency extension. Because it's late — and because there are people who have already posted their RPs — I'm allowing a 12-hour extension (not a 24-hour one) for everyone in the Elimination Chamber match. So their deadline is 3 p.m. eastern, noon pacific on Thursday.

    I got mixed up on deadlines and would have missed out if not for this extension. World works in mysterious ways.

    Yeah, I think posting the deadline in Spanish may have screwed some people up

    Because I feel bad about the quick deadline, I'm extending all non-World title match RPs 24 hours from this post. So Thursday at noon pacific time, 3 p.m. eastern time.

    This would affect The Mist, Vodka & Venom, APAB and Mackenzie, Chris Kennedy, and Jethro Warren. You have an extra 12 hours. Get those promos in.

    Someone brought up the fact it would be unfair for ppl who already posted promos so I rescind the extension. Hadn't thought about that.


    I apologize for the confusion. NO EXTRA EXTENSIONS. Sorry again, folks. I'll do a better job giving an extra day for future shows.

    PAJ: A pretty solid roleplay. This is the first roleplay I've read from PAJ, so if I sound like I don't know what I'm talking about I apologize. Don't take this as criticism but I really dislike the character of PAJ, he doesn't exactly come to me as a heel I would boo, or a face I'd cheer, but rather, someone I'd just turn off the channel for if I ever saw them on TV. The whole Kanye West text and him smiling at it, as well as coming off as a jerk to the woman in the beginning pretty much sealed the deal for me when it comes to this character. He's a pompous and arrogant jerk that still tries to talk himself despite not exactly being the cream of the crop at FWA. Never the less, PAJ's alcoholism and drug-induced ramblings are certainly a good read. The car collision at the end was a nice way to end the promo, but it did make PAJ seem a little bit weak - I don't know if that was the intention or not. The little tangent with the carrot was a bit weird. For the most part, this was pretty good.

    Drew Stevenson: This promo was pretty strong, but it was the typical roleplay you'd expect to see in a 6-man battle. I did like how you incorporated the nicknames of some of the competitors before you transitioned to them, but the transitioning itself was a bit abrupt [although I'm not one to talk, lol] and oftentimes the roleplay felt synthetic. Also, in the very first two or three paragraphs of the roleplay, I already felt like you were repeating yourself because you didn't have much to say but it seems like after a few paragraphs, you found the content and the insults you needed to dish out to your opponents. By no means was it a bad roleplay, but I did notice that those were some things you could maybe perhaps work on, but then again we aren't all perfect, as PAJ stated. Although it had some problems in the beginning and in the transitions, the content of the roleplay of good quality and made up for those little problems. Solid. I also laughed at "Back ages ago when I suckled on and nurtured from the tit of Gabrielle Montgomery". Classic.

    It's ok. The whole women thing was because he had just come off a feud with Gabrielle and it was framed around PAJ's dislike of a women taking 'his' spot and having his wife just screw him out of a victory. The Kayne West thing was something I added because of the celebrity reaction to Back in Business. The whole point of PAJ is for people to dislike him as much as he dislikes everyone else. Thanks for the review. I have some time this week so I will get around to reviewing yours and as many as I can

    Re: Fight Night promo discussion thread 4/18/2014

    Lord Vincent: A rather short roleplay that unfortunately suffers from many grammar and punctuation errors. Run-on sentences are quite common and so are awkward transitions into sentences. Never the less, if the handler of Vincent cared a little more about things like the aforementioned, the character would certainly go places. The roleplay was very psychological, a bit creepy and certainly demented. In fact, Lord Vincent reminds me a lot of The Rebel Bad Ass, if anyone remembers him from back in the day. I don't know, but it's lines like: "May your pathetic mortal god have mercy on your miserable souls" and "You, your new “husband”, your sister and a former ally thought that you all left me to die in that ring, but I surprised you all and the crowd when I got to my feet under my own power" ​that makes me laugh, even if it's not intention, but that sort of banter I can't get enough of. Certainly a fun roleplay to read and the incorporation of the gif and pictures worked well.

    Gabrielle: What an absolutely amazing roleplay. The descriptions were, at times, beautiful and very detailed and your masterful usage of color-coding only further improves the effect your descriptions have on readers. Gabrielle, I can tell, is a very intricately-made character with a ton of history behind her. I can't help but get the feeling though, that Gabrielle is giving off a vibe as if it's almost time for her to settle down in the arms of the man, back at home. I felt Gabrielle's warm love throughout the roleplay. Just a pure joy to read. You may not have talked too much about APAB or your tag-team partners, but I think that if you did it might have ruined what you created. This is a tough double-edged sword. Do you want to write and have it all come organically like that roleplay or should you write more about your opponents for the sake of scoring some points? You have a gift, and I can see that Gabrielle is one of the very best the FWA has to offer.

    Saddle Sally: I've always liked this character a lot but unfortunately, her dialect needs to be worked on a little more to be more convincing. There's flashes where I can hear what S.S is saying in my head but there's times where that just doesn't happen because the dialogue is sometimes inconsistent. Regardless, it was a nice read and Saddle Sally did make a few great points, which, going back to what Gabrielle was alluding to when she specifically emphasized the tense. APAB truly is on the decline, and I'm glad Saddle Sally pointed that out. Yippie Yippie Ki Hi Yay! I'll never get tired of that.

    Thomas Princeton: I usually always laugh out loud at the majority of promos iMatt dishes out because I can tell he is smirking like a piece of shit as he writes some of his insults. The snnobery of Thomas Princeton is great, and it was funny to simply read key words like "cesspool" and "filth". The similies present in the roleplay worked at first with the whole dam comparison but the antibiotic/virus one I didn't really understand. I don't understand if it's just me who couldn't quite get a good read on it or if was really incoherent but this brings a great point I wanted to make. The almost incoherent and comedic style that Thomas Jones and Lord Vincent have was very well done here. It's comedic because it's just funny to hear people shit talk each other with a bunch of hyperbole and self-victimization, that's always great to read. However, the roleplay was rushed but it was still a fun read.
