What are you thoughts on your current feud?
As for everything I've done with Texmex Holiday / Team Hoss it seems be a very well oiled machine. I'm not going to spoil as much as I don't have to but I can say we all gel very well. As Justin / Jeff can attest to our Google documents. 90% of everything written on there comes from our first session on google docs. Although for simplicity sake some of our older stuff will have to be deleted.
I like how fluid me and Greg can be when it comes to playing off each other. We had a great back and forth when we first came in and it was really fun. We are spreading it out too so it's not the this guy vs this guy and fuck everything else going on around us. I like being booked the way I am right now and have no complaints honestly. With the matches I want it to come across each match cVc has with these top good guys makes him a better more solid wrestler with each passing match. Each rub alone is making me better in the ring. I hope it comes across that way. I have never put more thought into a character and keeping him fresh and always ready for whatever. Python is his complete opposite and that is why it is so much fun working with Greg.
That me and Penn can't have one last RP Match. Lol... Honestly I have no dislikes as for me so far in this arc.
I like the direction cVc is going right now. I tie loose ends up on this show and get ready for the matches and stories in the future. There is no more perfect person right now for him to feud with than Python. To me personally positioning is everything right now and this is dead on I think. Oh Yeah, Damien is the man. I want to feud with him down the road if any way possible.
Everybody here has been real cool to work with. Ken, John, and Anty are all good people and the brainstorming session we had a month or so ago about the progression of the feud was probably one of the easiest I've ever done. We've got some very creative people in the DEFIANCE camp and can't wait to see this story go to full swing.
I echo the sentiments of some others that we're still finding our footing, but transition from one style (RP) to another (angle) will naturally take time. Also, keeping the lines of communication open needs work, though I'm noticing much more improvement on this front recently. Keep it up, guys.
As simplistic as the feud build is between Team HOSS and TexMex Holiday, it's pretty fucking awesome and probably one of the more fun angles I've had the pleasure of helping to plan out. It's organic and simple (HOSS are for all intense and purposes bullies... Frank, Diego and Rix are picked on and they don't like bullies). We do plan on carrying about two arcs out of this feud and I can't wait to have this all play out in an already awesome trios division full of talented writers and handlers.
What are you thoughts on your current feud? I feel like we executed it perfectly. Just to give an idea, each week our segments were being submitted one out of the three of us were absent for it or busy or something came up. Our segment format and google doc basically wrote itself out. We've had our feud planned through to Germany (and the fantastic finish there) since before we started this arc. I think you'll be hard pressed to find better synergy between Seth, Ken and I (and John when he's around). We seriously have 100+ page of google doc with us giving each other constructive feedback on how we think we should sell things and commentary on how we did and what we should do the next show.
I'll post some examples in this thread since a lot of it is outdated. It's not an exaggeration but we really *do* take what everyone says from the feedback threads and reflect on it. We high five ourselves and each other.
We also established early on that we're a partnership instead of a "rivalry". Although we're working on a rivalry/feud, we're doing it together. And we need to make sure that everyone involved is happy with the overall product. I think we've achieved that and the three of us look forward to bringing you into our feud once more with Germany.
Germany Show #2 - Notes
"Ken: Our stuff came out pretty well for Show #1, and we had some positive responses to the best-of series as a setup for the trios rematch. So let’s keep the fire burning with Show #2! It’s a showcase for Diego and Cappy this time, although we can have other characters put in some reactions (for example, Frank and Billy are upset about being screwed over, while Junior and Angel are cocky as a peacock for scoring the first win for Team HOSS). We really want to play up how TexMex Holiday is at a disadvantage here, and what a seemingly impossible task Diego is facing against Capital Punishment if he wants to keep HOSS from sweeping the series at this early stage. Also, if John is checking in, let us know! You’re part of this group too and your input is welcome!
Anty: I agree. I think we can do two-three segments showcasing just that. One segment with a TexMex reaction and/with a volatile reaction between Cappy and Diego de Leon. We need to definitely show these two characters off. I want one segment for sure where Cappy is telling Diego how outclassed and outmatched he is this match. Call it whatever you’d like, but I’ve been having problems accessing this document at work. I’m thinking of stealing a chant from El Generico and implementing it over the tour:
OLE ~~~~ OLE ~~ OLE ~~ OLE~~~~
OLE ~~~~~~ OLE ~~~~~~
I figured a European Crowd might be the best. I want to let Diego go nuts with kicking this match.
Ken: I’d love to see that -- Cappy on his knees, Diego whomping him viciously with dozens of kicks at a time, Daniel Bryan style. About accessing this document: Gmail had been pestering me for weeks that my Windows Vista version of IE wasn’t cutting it anymore, and finally it crashed while I was viewing the doc a few days ago. I’m using Chrome now and it works fine. Stupid finicky Google.
Seth: I've been around, it's my job making life difficult for me so close to Christmas. I can get a skeleton of a segment out tonight and work on match tomorrow.
Anty: I’m going to try to do some of the match out right now.
Seth you here?
Seth: Dude, I totally apologize for leaving you hanging with the match. I had to work a 12th shift yesterday and didn't have time to crack this out. Great job on the match, man.
Anty: No worries bud! I finished the match. I saw you were in here for a moment so I quickly messaged."
Likes? I'm loving the synergy between Seth, Ken and I. It translated well. While we did have a fubar match up for the final Japan show, I think we recovered and going into Germany we'll have a great match. *narrows eyes at James, cracks knuckles, starts writing match furiously* I've seriously enjoyed working with Seth and Ken and it's been the most fun I've had in the game. Honestly I haven't stuck it out with a fed for longer then... 2-3 months in over 10 years. It's been something like 4-5 months now? Yeah, it's official.
Dislikes? John Riviera disappearing on us. I felt bad that we didn't have a chance to really like Rix shine - which would've happened this arc had he been around. I think we made due though and hopefully we did Rix right by you John.
What are you thoughts on your current feud?
Well... I'm handling Edward White so his situation with Dusty and Frank and the LBC I'm helping write with James. Good stuff so far. It's building towards something. (staying cryptic as I can here) and on the other side of the coin we've got Dan Ryan, Eugene and Bronson which really came together on this last card. All these elements are boiling in the same kitchen... it's all developing really nicely. Lots of fun twists and turns coming for Canada.
We've got things booked waaaaaaaay out past Canada into whatever comes next with LOTS of loosey goosey room to re-book when needed, which we've totally done already. Gives us a blueprint to follow most of the time. James, Damien and I have a good rhythm creativly... we also have like fifty Google Docs, but whateva it's our hot angle we'll do what we want.
I REALLY hate that the booking of this angle ran off Dan. CVC is a great character. Wish we could mend that situation big time.
