    I gotta say I'm proud of my promo. Hopefully I did ok with the color coordinated dialogue this time. It's not my thing but hopefully it was done decently on my part.

    With patience, relaxed concentration and some extra effort at getting it all right-the phone isn't really that difficult to nail down properly.

    It's like no one's showing their hand yet. Usually by like the second day, Hans has something up but not even he's getting in on it lmao.

    Yeah I've definitely been waiting for some activity but I'm guessing it's that time of the week again, plus I wanna say there's an extra week for this one, so maybe people are playing it at a relaxed pace.

    Been super busy with work and have to go to Chicago for my job too Friday, not getting back until Monday. Not sure if I will get something in for this ppv. Since I have never been to Chicago before except for connecting flights I hope to get some sight seeing in. If I have time, will write something in the hotel room if I get my paper work done early

    Had taken a 3 day weekend this past weekend but never found the time to sit down at the computer for more than a few minutes- did family things.

    Siiick! Hope you have tons of fun. I went there and I fell in love. Millenium Park is always cool to see. There's tons of used bookstores there too so pop in one of those if you get time. If you like Italian food, I highly recommend you go to Lou Malnati's (There's hundreds of them.) it's just amazing stuff. Portions as big as your head lol. If you're a movie guy, there's tons of movie landmarks there. Ferris Beuler, Blues Brothers, etc. Since it just opened, you can go visit the actual Pro Wrestling Tees store. I hear it's pretty cool to see in person.

    Legit the whole reason Izzy is from Chicago is because I love that city. I hope you have as much fun as I did, dude!

    The majority of promos come in on the last two days. Deadlines a few days away so let's not put too much worry into who's shown up and who hasn't yet. Plenty of time. Everyones schedules are different.

    I was in your neck of the woods tday- Baton Rouge t drop off case files. Dead tired. Enjoying what is left of the day with my girls and my wife. Won't see ee them for a few days. But am looking forward to Chicago. I know I won't get to see all I want. Will pretty much see what I can on Sunday which means a lot of places may be closed. Hope somebody is playing in the city as I can put it down as meals and entertainment.

    Got to go to Houston towards the end of next week
    So I ain't gonna get a promo in this time.

    No worries, Hans. Family and real life priorities always first.


    Enjoy the next month of jobbing to Yodakkey and Alpha 5000. Just kidding, bruh

    Not sure if that promo's good enough for ppv level. I'm hoping it's enough to at least put up a good match, but we'll see. Hopefully I can kick on and keep improving from this point.

    Tommy -

    I feel like we're both at a disadvantage because we only had a couple weeks of buildup before this big match. So there were a lot of things that you and I both probably want to get out there, and so we're rushing them or forcing them into our promos for this week.

    So with that in mind, I think that disadvantage forced you to talk a little more about Dave Sullivan than you should have. With a couple more weeks of build up you could have sprinkled that in, so I get that you wanted to get some of that stuff out there.

    But now that you did, if our feud doesn't end at Mile High, I think Dave has to be in the back of Tommy's mind. Ty Johnson is the opponent.

    Also, Dave has been in the FWA since 2012-2013, so he hasn't crawled out of nowhere. Check out Ty's bio, there is a link to my Dave Sullivan character's bio there. I kept it fairly updated at least with an extensive background on Dave before and during his career. There is A LOT of material that I think you could use (but carefully so Dave isn't the main focus). For example, there was a point where Sullivan was a drug addict, a murderer, and even in prison. Check it out...and also check out how he is a 3x X Division Champ

    Overall it was good to read another Tommy Thunder promo. I'm not sure what direction I'm going to go yet with Ty's this week. I have a couple ideas but I'm trying to figure out some things. I plan to write something up at work tomorrow.

    Re: Mile High 2017 Promo Discussion Thread

    The Thunder promo definitely showed good effort, it had some typos a small bit but hey. Though be careful with the"I know this guy from a past federation and we have a history". Deception and Gruber did that and it kinda didn't work too well because many were completely clueless of that entire history and I believe they wanted more details and focus on "the now" instead of "then".

    Aaron Kendrick, the details of the scenery and extra thoughts about everything kind of lost my interest. It shows good character work to the point of I definitely see what you're going for, and I'd also say the completely blank, normal, non bolded or italicized parts could use some sort of formatting as well.

    Maybe it's just being a stickler, but he said he'd "pay for the whole bill" ,and leave, but neither of them ordered anything, lol.
