    Re: Mile High 2017 Promo Discussion Thread

    Sayer - I agree with Cocks, this is definitely one of the best promos you've come out with. I really enjoyed the first half flashback parts with Momma Garcia. I felt like the dialog in that scene flowed so well, and I could really picture it in my head. The only problem is, and I struggle with this myself while doing flashbacks, is you have to split the promo in two halves. Then one half is solely on the character, and the other half your opponent finally gets mentioned. The second half of the promo ended up sounding more like a generic FWA promo. But the first half was incredibly strong and fun to read. I think a better format would've been to section it out. One half of the flash back opens the promo, then cut to 2017, then cut to 2001, then go to the second half of 2017. But that's just my opinion, I think others could say they don't like that format because it jumps around too much. But good work here I enjoyed it.

    And I have to say, writing a large promo on a phone really sucks. Was not that bad when we would do bqck and forth promos at EWN, but this way, it takes a lot longer on a phone.

    Re: Mile High 2017 Promo Discussion Thread

    I've read all the promos for the main event and want to say, first off, they're all solid.


    I'm not necessarily a fan of some aspects of your writing style, Starr, but no one can say you left anything on the table with this one. You tried your ass off and regardless if you win, you should be commended for that effort. And I think you have a REALLY REALLY good shot to win. Much better shot than most gave you at the onset, for sure. Really well done and part of me definitely hopes you win. You've written an A+ underdog character, which is very very very tough to do. You're probably one of three or four true contenders in this match.

    That being said, I'm going to do this now (in this thread) because I would rather this paragraph not be mixed into a congratulatory moment for the next champion.

    I know I won't win. I've accepted that. I accepted that the moment I clicked "Submit Reply" and knew there was no turning back. Some weeks you just don't have "it", and some weeks your bachelor party was two days before deadline. That's not an excuse, just reality. I definitely could've done more, and even now I am slightly regretting not thinking of some other approaches. But I'm also happy it will end because I've literally nothing left to accomplish in the FWA from a competitive standpoint. And someone who is at that stage should not be the one leading the way. So, while I did try and did not intentionally lay down (I was asked, as I've "laid down" before), I think it's for the best despite my lower-than-usual "best" effort. I've done everything in the FWA, won every belt but one, main evented every PPV, written every type of promo, set records, won awards, faced nearly everyone, feuded with nearly everyone. And the promo I put out — a promo of just "get something done to save face and represent the title of champion" — is evidence that it's time for me to lose to someone. It was hella fun. I main evented a BIB and won the World Championship. I had never done those two things before.

    That ain't TGO's style. I'm sure he will use Shannon to help build talent.

    Yeah I figured if nothing else she'd still be around in some capacity.

    Considering I've only done this for 11 months, I knew I probably wouldn't beat anybody in the main event based on content, but I at least wanted to make my RPs very visually appealing. I know I'm taking the plunge into the deep end(Both Starr and Izzy). I really appreciated the fact you guys gave me the chance considering all the people who should've gotten one before me.

    It's sort of stunning to see the strides you've made in such a short time. It's good stuff. Go find your first ever promo and compare to this. Wowzers.
