    Let us know for sure if you'd like to use one of your extensions. I believe you still have all five at the moment. You have until one of your opponents promos or before the 24 hour mark prior to the promo deadline, whichever comes first.

    I'm going to use an extension request. Very unlikely I'll end up needing it as I'm just about up to date with coursework but erring on the side of caution seeing as it's a championship match. Thanks in advance guys.

    You both have been charged an extension. You both have four remaining. Golden, Ramon, Urigawa, Maskell, and Cole all have extensions as well free of charge.

    Important to note that per our new policy, Sayer's extension only covers himself on his team. The UA do NOT have an extension.

    He can't see you anymore.

    My favorite thing was when Dak tried to block me after I joined the efed staff, and he found out he couldn't anymore.

    Because we told him at the same time so at least you got to look honorable out of it.

    The most amazing thing about this recent conversation is that I've learned AON is even more of a waste of space than I thought he was previously

    Promo Review

    SAINT SULLEY
    Overview
    Saint Sulley journeys into the South American rainforest for a TV special alongside Discovery Channel royalty, Bindi Irwin. For this special, Saint Sulley and Bindi explore the river banks of the rainforest for the colorful, alluring, colorful frogs that are known to inhabit. They spot a frog that is beautiful to look at, but its beauty is a warning to not disturb or attempt to turn it into prey because it will end in a deadly manner for you. They encounter another beautiful frog that mimics the deadly beauty of the previous frog, but in the end the deadly beauty of this frog is all for show. This frog is essentially imitating its deadlier counterpart to make up for the fact that it's harmless. What a fascinating biology/science lesson! The special comes to a close with the discovery of the Jaguar - a top of the food chain predator and inference of that this animal is the one in the South American rainforest that closely resembles who Sulley is in the FWA.

    Thoughts
    I think this is a great RP, however I don't think it's the RP that could/should net you the "W" in the main-event of a pay-per-view. This RP would have been perfect for a match on Fight Night or against an opponent that you didn't have that much history with. You and Gabby have been building this feud for two years and I feel like the RP you produced doesn't do it justice. I would like to have seen Sulley go harder and would like to have seen more of a real-world, raw vibe to this RP. It just doesn't scream main-event, major feud, world title RP to me.

    Sulley is calm and doesn't view Gabrielle as a threat. Sulley is pulling a McGregor and underestimating his opponent by going and doing all types of media and trying to be a star. Sulley is focusing on other people when his mind should be focused on the task at hand. I don't care about MVH when Sulley isn't feuding with her. I get what you were doing drawing the comparison between the two, but it didn't need to be done. You essentially put over MVH and at this time, in this feud, for this match, she's a non factor.

    I think you did a good RP, I just don't think this was the match that you should have used it for. This RP should have been a stamp on your reign/claim to being one of the best and I just didn't see it.

    MVH
    OverviewA western special set in the great state of Missouri showcases the emotional turmoil that rips apart at the mind and soul of Sheriff MVH. Rumor has it that man with three missing fingers had robbed a train and patrons of the town (played by wrestlers of FWA) believe that the towns newest resident, Mr. Parr, and his gang of thieves are behind it. Sheriff MVH, not wanting to make assumptions based on hearsay and circumstantial evidence takes it upon herself to confront Mr. Parr. However, in confronting Mr. Parr she also confronts her past in St. Louis with her ol' lady Belle. Mr. Parr offers her words of wisdom, that she didn't think she'd receive that night, before sending her on her way. MVH ponders the event of the night and the events of the past as she rides her steed off into the sunset.

    ThoughtsI loved this entire story. I loved your inclusion of FWA characters as the town folk and I loved that it was good ol' country western. This would have been a great western show to watch back in the day. Not often do you see women in respected positions like that back in the day and I love the way you didn't let that impact the story. You're clearly one of the strongest writers/storytellers on the roster and this RP was a clear show of that.

    I've said this previously on the discord and I think this RP is a really good example of what I have been trying to point out to people. People are spending too much time writing short stories and forgetting that the main part of this whole thing is...this is a wrestling efed. I got almost nothing related to wrestling from anything in this RP except for the characters being based on wrestlers. I don't know if you're feuding with Parr or if you're STILL feuding with Belle. Your bit on her ate up a bunch of the RP where you could have focused more your actual opponent. In the end, your opponent ended up sorta helping you but still there was nothing wrestling about it.

    Bring it back to a wrestling reality a little bit. If we're just writing short stories incorporating our wrestling character and others, I can jump on that ship and tailor my future writings to be more like that. I think its fine to write something like this sometimes to break up the wrestling reality. I just don't recommend relying on it.

    *Note: This is my first MVH RP I've read in a while. This may just have been a one off but I viewed it as a microcosm of a bigger trend I've noticed for months.
