    Hey guys, very sorry that my rp is in later than usual and maybe not as good. I have been terribly ill, puking all week and just now managed to finish it.

    Thanks to all those who read it and enjoy.

    Mackenzie Roberts: A very angry but also defeated Mackenzie, I hope this is leading towards an interesting storyline.

    Drew Stevenson: I know you were sick this week but you could have taken more time, you had until Friday night. That being said this doesn't feel like a rushed rp at all. Your pedestrian attitude towards Vodka and Venom is well placed within the confines of the character and his sexual ribbing towards Gabrielle adds a sinister level to him trying to basically emasculate Ashley O' Ryan whom you definitely spent the bulk of the rp attacking, but you got in a few good jabs at Stu as well. It was such a back handed compliment kind of promo and I like that attitude about Drew. Also the Rod Sterling bit at the end was gold, good job!

    Beatrixx Black: The dialogue from Beatrixx is outstanding, it just feels so natural and realistic. This promo gave me more of an idea of just how irreverent she is towards people and that's great! You also trash talked Mackenzie quite effectively. The setting was a bit cliche for such a colorful character and while it did have a point it kind of was a far too obvious reason with little to no real payoff. I wasn't a fan to be quite honest of your location but other than that a good rp.

    APAB: Hope this is the beginning of a retooling process for this tag team.

    Jason Gryphon: An intense promo towards the end, but it made sense and it did create some vivid imagery of just how savage Jason is when it comes to gaining a victory. Almost was a bit too much but the promo was grounded by a very detailed portrayal of Jason's thought process. Usually when people lose a title it's all about anger but this was more relief and determination to now use the free time to take on Hall and all who stand in his way, and I like that. That approach to losing a title isn't used very often but it worked here quite nicely. Nice bringing back memories of adversity Jason has conquered this all in all was a great promo that gave a great idea of the stakes and Jason's mental headspace.

    Stu St. Clair: This felt like a pre boxing match interview from a guy on Barbara Walters, and I mean that in a good way. Usually Stu promos are dark but this was less dark and more gray a bit mundane like rain clouds were over his head. It felt like the kind of thing an aging boxer would say before a big match that could take his career towards a path of resurgence or just make him another has been. It was almost sad to hear Stu talk about how his life choices have made him a near isolated man now clinging to get back to glory and keep others from stealing his. Good use of history and analysis to downplay your opponent's tag team effectiveness as well. Though maybe a little less time looking at the metaphorical bottom of the beer glass, not that it's a criticism, I just feel that may have been at times the weakest point of the rp. But in conclusion: a good promo and one that I think works well, and oddly fits this kind of downtrodden theme that's been going through a lot of the vets this week.

    Ryan Hall: A self reflective promo hidden in this kind of external conflict between Hall and the internet troll. Surprisingly this is a pretty novel idea, not many have actually had them approach internet haters and talk with them in this kind of sense. Only issue and you kind of bring it up in your own promo...this doesn't focus extremely well on the Vodka and Venom match. It meanders a bit tackling the outside storylines going on with Wolf and Jason Gryphon which is fine, it just felt a bit unbalanced in the end. It worked nicely and made me understand Hall and where he is in his career right now, and why it's important for people to remember that he's still one of the all time greats. This was a solid promo for sure.

    More reviews to come, will review for review. Have to finish my Saddle Sally rp first.

    Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and for thy possession, the ends of the earth. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron. Thou shalt dash them in pieces, like a potters vessel. Be wise now, therefore ye kings. Be admonished ye judges of the earth. Serve the lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

    Re: Fight Night PROMO DISCUSSION thread 6/20/2014

    Sorry to my opponent and mainly to everyone else. I have written a quick and short promo as I haven't had much time.

    This is due to the fact that on Wednesday night (around 2am my time) my brother phoned me saying that our mum was convulsing and wasn't responding to him and was being sick. So I rushed over and phoned an ambulance - paramedics took our mum away and police also arrived and searched the house (this is due to thinking it may have been an overdose and due to the fact circumstances were suspicious) but found nothing. So, whilst my mums in hospital, I have been working and looking after my little bro and going to hospital and seeing other family members. My mum basically went through an adrenal crisis episode which basically is a bad thing and can lead to shock which can lead to a coma or death (also known as an addisonian crisis - due to addisons disease which my mum has) so I have been a bit sidetracked lately. My mum's going to be fine and shit though so I am not worrying too much. Just haven't had too much time.

    Anyway, sent my promo in.

    So, just like everybody here, I'd like to apologize for my shit performance today. As you all know, I had heart failure roughly over two weeks ago and I have been a total mess. I'm getting severe anxiety attacks every day and right now, surviving is more on my mind than E-fedding is.

    Still, I would like to continue to be booked. I feel I am getting better. Writing makes me anxious so I'll end it at that.

    WOLF: Your promo for our match was incredible. There isn't really more I can say about it. Your visuals were outstanding and it really got the point across for our match as well as your upcoming feud with Thunder.

    iMatt: Phenomenal Work on your promo this week Matt. You always seems determine to bring Sally to life through your words and it really shown through this week. Keep of the good work and you will be the Women's Champion for a long time.

    Hall: A good promo from you this week that got the point across that you could care less about this match and it is our feud that you are looking forward too. I am so ready to face you one on one in the ring.

    I'm not going to lie or come up with a stupid excuse, I genuinely forgot to promo. I was messing around with some friends on the internet, and by the time I remembered to promo, I was too tired to even walk. However, if I could maybe be excused for being such a dumb ass and be allowed to promo even though it's hours passed the deadline, I would do my best. If I can't get a small extension, I completely understand and apologize for being such a moron.

    Well seeing as their were issues with both of you guys getting rps in why don't you guys call it a wash and make it a storyline match that maybe goes to a no contest or a draw? And as far as I know the email address is still the same but you have to notify us via pm you sent it via email. Otherwise we don't know to look

    Re: Fight Night PROMO DISCUSSION thread 6/20/2014

    Wolf: I incorporated baseball into my rp last week as well but I have no problem saying your promo had a million times more emotional resonance. Well done, great mental notes of Wolf how he saw Todd and his offer and how just depressed Wolf is and what optimism there is possibly left for him and why at the end of his career matches like this still mean something. This was good, great way to go after Jason without demonizing him and also showing Wolf's experience and evolution as a character.

    Dinorah Redgrave: I had no doubt in my mind you wouldn't bring it against it. This was a good promo, liked the background and how Dinorah played off the various different people in her life. As always you create an aesthetically pleasing promo not just with descriptions of emotions and visuals but also just how it's designed with the Japanese characters/text and the color scheme. Ferocity of Dinorah definitely came through in this and I am looking forward to seeing how this match turns out!

    Ted & James: This is a promising team, I know from your OTE days that you can put a good tag team together and I like where this one is going, they have a strong bond and that comes off in this rp but you may have over sold it in some spots. Though I like the little bit at the end where they were arguing over music taste that felt natural and raw. The yellow text is a bit too bright, next time find a different color thats more appealing to the reader's eye. But nice work here.

    Ashley O' Ryan: Simple, short but sweet promo or maybe I should say bittersweet. This was solid work and I liked it, though at the end I couldn't help but wanting to play the song "Love it" by Icona Pop. That's neither a good nor bad thing that's just my headspace right now. Great job, like the attitude from Ashley.

    Carter/Kennedy: Man this tag team is already such a force to be reckoned with! Good job with going after the opponents with vigor but also building up the chemistry between the two and how they approach matches and why they are different from their opponents. This tag team works so well together it's a wonder it's never happened before. This was executed with top notch dialogue that wasn't weighed down by any lengthy visuals or needless set up. I truly enjoyed reading this start to finish.

    Blackbird/Warren: Now here is a team I would have never guessed worked so well together, though I suppose I should have seen that coming based on the great chemistry of your feud. This was a nice promo that really makes me wonder if you guys should team up more. The banter between Jethro and Vincent is stellar and flows so nicely, adding depth and a world larger than the promo without doing too far down the rabbit hole. Overall I really liked this promo, maybe a little more on the offensive against your opponents but seeing as these two don't get along the balance wasn't that off.

    Danny Toner: Respect for posting the promo but owning up to missing the deadline. This was a slightly below decent rp but I understand you had internet issues so it's cool. This seemed like a promo that was cut in half at the end not much of a payoff for the build though I am slowly starting to learn about Danny so the groundwork is being laid for a very effective character.

    Chicky Chicky Boom Boom.

    Disappointed in all the new recruits for no showing. Seriously, They fucking brought Smash back for you all so you wouldn't be relegated to dark matches. Caspian, Heatmaker, LeBron Carter, you all suck. Toner gets props for getting his in, even if it is past deadline, which I am usually dead set against. Props to Beatrixx Black for taking last weeks loss in stride and bouncing back better than ever.

    I'll have reviews later, I just can not for the life of me understand why so many people no showed this week. Mac tried to get his in but couldn't so I am not faulting him by any means. Everyone else though...it's time to come to Jesus.
