    Bell Connelly: Your ability to capture the playful and childlike side of Bell is amazing. Her playing with the toys in a fun and child like way and then making the scene into the actual story of what's going on with Bell and her match was SO creative. This in fact was one of the most creative promos I have read here in a while. The only thing, and this is just my opinion and probably pretty easy to disagree with, but I think you should've made the entire promo stay in this childlike imagination perspective. I thought the air got sucked out whenever Bell backed away and started being serious. However I do understand that it was important for the character, but to me it would have been incredibly impressive if you were able to do the entire promo like that. It doesn't matter though because it still was incredibly impressive to me and might be my favorite of yours. Don't tell Chris Kennedy, Devin Golden, or Ryan Rondo...but I think Bell might be my favorite of them all.

    Hanz Gruber:
    You have adapted very well and much faster than I thought you would to the style of FWA. It definitely is a completely different world, but way better in my opinion than he last. Your fate is in your own hands with your promos, it is much more real to me. So with that being said, I thought you were right on track with this one. It was good, you know not to do boring promos of Hanz standing in the ring talking trash, but rather pick a setting and talk about your opponent in a better way.

    I really liked the first part with Sasha. It was cute, and it showed the human side of Hanz. I also thought you did a relatively OK job of making Sasha sound realistic. But I'll be honest when I say I think you should have ended it there. The ending part with Sasha seemed less authentic and more forced. Like you were afraid that your audience wouldn't understand what your intention was the first time, so you threw it in our face and pointed it out. I also have a bit of a gripe with the Grandmother knowing Hanz Gruber, and then referring to him as "Hanz Fucking Gruber" in front of her Sasha. I just can't picture this in real life where a Grandmother would say those words, and say them in front of her granddaughter.

    But I did like the Sasha bits, and I like how you're showing that Hanz isn't a complete villain.

    WOLF: I always enjoy WOLF’S Promo style. Starts off with a emotional scene, really getting into WOLF’s head slow build, taking down his foes one by one, AND THEN AT THE END HE SCREAMS AND ROARS ABOUT BLOOD AND PAIN AND BLNEIWBJ!

    I will say this , no one can better paint a lovely bloody picture with his words then Mr. Wolf, he kind of reminds me of Cactus Jack, I can almost hear that little crack in his voice as he screams about what he will do to his foes, Lovely and intense :D “ ONLY PAIN! I WON'T FALL IN LOVE AGAIN! WHAT I WILL DO IS IMPOSE MY WILL UPON THIS COMPANY UNTIL THE DAY I DIE!”

    Love it.

    Zako Wrath: By Jingo. He is a scary gentleman isn’t he? I mean, you already have portrayed supernatural beast who loves causing pain, so given the match, the promo was teed off rather nicely for you to have fun with it. I love the line regarding his manager holding him back but now she’s letting him off the leash.

    Tommy Thunder: : T Double RP is nothing but top notch. Everything was spot on great! I love how Tommy got more and more passionate as the promo went on, and the fact you’re playing up the whole “Street fighter VS Legit wrestling background” He’s a proud purist who comes off snobby and entitled especially against a guy who’s his polar opposite.

    Bell Connelly: Formatting is off 0/10.


    Jason Randell:

    First off Penny and Jason creep me out, I can’t even imagine the kind of kinky stuff they get into when they’re alone. She’s crazy. He’s a creep. The mind abounds.

    But yeah, there’s not much to say, I think you got out of your comfort zone a little bit because this is easily one of your more outlandish promo, generally i’ve noticed you prefer a more basic set up, like a interviewer or something so this is wild for you and I like that you’re trying out new things.

    Starr: STARR my booooyyyy! Amazing work here and IMO? Almost flawless. Concept, speech, character, and setting? ALLLL on point my dude, like seriously, this was one of your best promo
    You showed a side to STARR when it mattered and it was passionate and it was just an overall "blew my head off" quality roleplay Congratulations because it was top notch. And at worse? You just cemented yourself in the main event scene for life. Also you really need to show me how to do animated Gifs

    BUCK: Really good job by OZ here, always a pleasure reading hisr work and this was no different. I loved the approach he took with losing for the first time and the tourny coming up My one issue would be that at times, t, and that's my only complaint, so. Great job.


    Ty Johnson: Creative approach as always! Which is of course the best kind of RP, you really play up Ty’s personality; a punk street kid that’s driven and hungry and will viciously chase after all of his goals. I can dig it.

    Animated gifs actually are pretty easy to do. Some video making software you can export as gifs. But I like doing it the hard way for some I have done in the past- using Photoshop and Image Ready and a whole lot of layers.

    Yeah I don't like the stand in the ring and just talk all that much either. And here I did want to give him more depth. And I am taking everything Kai has said and your pointers too into account.

    One other reason I did use the little girl in this promo - because of work these past two weeks and all the travel- Chicago for a few days then home for two days, then to Houston this past few days, then finally home- had my daughters on my mind, missed them a lot as well as my wife.
