    Re: Back in Business XIII Promo Discussion Thread

    I'm actually real life sorry for my promos. This time it felt like utter garbage to me when I wrote them. Starr's especially.

    I don't know what more I can do, what new areas I can put him in, what new ways I can present him. I try saying something new and I end up regurgitating the same old shit. I had nothing against Cyrus, and I had nothing against Bell.

    I'm running on empty with Starr. It feels incredibly weird for me to say that because he's been my character that's ran the longest.

    Izzy I feel less bad about, but I still feel I turned in an inferior product.

    Re: Back in Business XIII Promo Discussion Thread

    I hadn’t thought about connecting the two promos despite doing that in the past. I had the idea for Penny to speak to classroom of school children but then I remembered it’s summer time, and that school is out so that wouldn’t have made much sense so I went for the formal speech like concept instead. The idea of a PowerPoint presentation popped into my head when I began to write so I went with it.

    For Randall I was kind of stuck for ideas but I wanted it to be serious and just have him go off on Toner, that’s what came out of it in the end and I was content with it although I do feel it could have been slightly better imo. I sprinkled in little things like smoking of the cigarette and drinking, vices of Toner, and the old man as a symbol of his future. I don’t know if it’ll work but it is what it is.

Mocking them to make you feel less of a geek for being on a geek on a wrestling forum is lame. If you want to not read their posts, I can fix that for you.

    At last, my promo is done... and it's a recap episode. Best of luck to Tom, whose promo I'm going to read tomorrow because right now I need a sleep.

    I tried the powerpoint presentation idea at Carnal Contendership a couple years ago with Dave. I was so proud of it and honestly thought it was one of my most creative concepts yet. But I got absolutely knocked down and grilled on it in reviews and grading because it was "too listy". A promo I thought as one of my personal bests again didn't come out that way.

    Maybe it'll work out better for you though.

    Here's the one I wrote

    I hope you continue with the conversations with God. It's very unique, very unorthodox. Sets you apart. Don't overkill it but sprinkling those in is a great way to breach a topic and provide some character depth.

    I haven't read anything about your bio but if God is a focal point of the character then good job. Good character. And a good promo.


    Thank you sir, I really appreciate the words. The character of Aaron kendrick is someone who is going through a breakdown psychologically. He’s giving up on everything he ever believed in out of frustration and lack of success. And this breakdown has begun to overtake him and allow him to believe he is something greater than the ordinary man. He truly believes he is becoming a God, hence why he refers to himself as “The Great I Am.” And with this promo, I was really going for something different. Not the typical “I’m going into a match with three other guys and here’s who they are and here’s why I’m winning.” I wanted to focus on my story and show people who he is and show people why he’s going to win instead of telling them why he’s going to win.

    If I lose, no big deal. I got what I wanted our of the character development. If I win, even better. It will give me a lot more ammo to use in my future promos. It was a ton of fun and I’m really anxious to see how it turned out for everyone.

    Just want to apologize for missing this. I’m extremely sick right now (right after going away for 4 days) which is why I haven’t been posting in general.
