I thought the intro was great. It's been well-recognized within the Frontier crowd over the last...um...decade...that our show intros are amazing, but it's still worth highlighting the wicked-awesome detail that went into painting a picture of a Nordic debacle within which to frame our next couple of shows. And by instilling said vibe, we set apart this specific "tour," which I much prefer as a conceptual framework for running a fed (setting up tours) than the traditional "there will always be a show next week" setup of WWE and most of the other feds I've been involved with. Yay intro.
I'll echo Billy's comments about the NFW n00bs, all of whom have shown dedication in RPing and familiarizing the fed with their characters. I am scared of all of you. That means YOU, Leyenda de Ramey II.
I'm okay with Impulse garbage-timing his first BRAWL defense. With the way Pete runs the character, and the increase in fed activity in general, you know you'll see constant WHC billing.
I really enjoyed Rook's commentary during the Fatal Four-Way. Really funny stuff. I like that Ben will space out Rook's comedy routines so that they come as a surprise and we as readers don't get used to seeing shtick from the character. That's what makes him funny, breaking the normal "I, ROOK-BOT" thing. And on the subject of Rook and the Hellfire Club, I think it's a fine pairing, because A) JJ, Dorch, and Blaine are great characters, all worthy of a WHC campaign against Impulse, and Rook belongs in that group and can only benefit from constant interactions with those characters; and B) I loves me some Rook, but I feel like sometimes in the past Ben has struggled to find a place for him or the right storyline or feud partner or whatever, and this move should certainly remedy that. Plus with the SUPERFLY stuff making Harmen into a face character, Rook should swing in the opposite direction. 'Cuz that's how the universe works, and Santa and Jesus told me that in person.
