I’m All Out of Bubblegum…
*sigh* what a fucked up 2015. Dr. Cliff Huxtable is a serial rapist, Hulk Hogan is a trashy racist homophobe, The Dream American Dream is dead, now we lost Hotrod. It’s a shitty ass year to be a child of the 80’s, lemme’ tell you what.
DEF 2 DA MAX
Don’t me a lemon! Be a rosebud! Because it’s party time, all… yeah, anyway. I insist you make this entrance for every match, Ken. Great promo from Euge, soooooort of expected a little more “why is Box not out here to help Eugene” to sort of set up the segment later, but meh. I guess it’s implied. Great simple promo work that elevates everybody. Good shit guys.
Three Of Five
I wrote this one. I hope everyone is enjoying the BRAZEN stuff. Justin handed me a doc full of forgotten hand me down characters and a huge list of random developmental name generator first and last names and I went to fuckin’ work. ENORMOUS HOLY FUCK props to Chris for the work on all the micros. None of this shit would be happening without his incredible art bringing these characters to life.
IF YOU HAVE SIDE CHARACTERS/NPC’S/RANDOM GIMMICK IDEAS that you’d like to add to Eric Dane’s little gorilla / punk rock developmental system OOOOOR you have a hair brained idea to a BRAZshow hit up me and Justin, there’s a lot of forms I’d like to see those "shows" take.
Bronson Box vs. Reinhardt Hoffman
Really want some feedback on the formatting of this match. Does this work for everyone? I really think a light peppering of summarized matches like this will allow for A. more bookings, more characters, more storytelling opportunity without killing ourselves pounding out pages and pages of announcer bibble babble and B. allow for Justin to book a few random matches over each arc, keeps things interesting.
If you guys want to use any of the talent we debut from BRAZEN like this to give your characters some bookings on DEFtv hit us up.
The Title Is Back Where It Belongs
ALL HAIL CURTIS PENN. ALL HAIL CANCER JILES.
Jon, awesome work… GEORGE! Welcome back to the fold sir! If you fella’s need ANY help with booking this feud I am soooo here for you. Hit me up on Skype. I think this angle has some real legs, could be a looooot of fun. (I’d also love to see some news / propaganda to follow up this big return and blossoming feud… hint hint, nudge nudge.)
Me write this.
Mushi vs. Harmony
I really like the booking of Harmony because she’s a departure from 90% of the woman characters we’ve had in that she’s not a “tough as nails former MMA fighter that don’t take no shit”... she’s an upbeat indie wrestle chick. I like that. I also like how Mushi eats the loss due to sort of “pfffff, whatever lady… stupid weak lady, I… wait what?” like it came out of nowhere. Solid underdog / monster heel booking. Good job guys.
Old World Curiosity
This could indeed have been off card, but everyone seemed to like it so meh. I just goddamn love Keyes and want to run an arc one of these days between he and Box. Slooooooow burn, just developing a relationship between the two. We’ll probably do more of these. Glad everyone liked it.
Dan Ryan: [to Troy, completely ignoring Frank.]
I’m gonna go on ahead. When you’re done with Amy Shumer over there, maybe we can have a match.
I really like that Ryan is in no mood for Frank. I’d love to see more of that seeing as Troy is so cool with Frank’s shenanigans. I can’t wait to hear Ryan really let loose on Holiday, there’s a monster promo there waiting to happen.
#1 Contender to the FIST of DEFIANCE: Frank Holiday vs. Dan Ryan vs. Lindsay Troy
What’s there to say? Fantastic match. Love the intrigue at the end with Ryan leaving. This is why I’m glad we broke up that GIANT useless mega combo doc. I don’t want to have all the angles spoiled for me. Letting Justin pick through our personal angle docs and compile the run sheets really is the way to go. Keeps things fun and surprising as each of our storylines unfold.
The Wake Of Defeat
Loved this sooooo much. Like everyone said above about the Dewey Box seg, how it didn’t drag on and absolutely got right to the heart of the matter. Harmony is positioned perfectly to take that next step. The SoHer title is absolutely in her future IMO.
I’d kill to read some news / propaganda stuff attached to this beatdown, get some off card heat. This segment deserves some followup. Just a suggestion. Awesome beatdown.
I won’t blow James to hard for the main event, he knows how good he is.
Next card is going to follow up this match in a big way.
Hold onto your butts.
GREAT show, imo. Everything came together, it clearly sets up the angles going forward from Mushi/Harmony to Penn/Jiles to the Holiday/Ryan/Troy drama and obs me, Dames, James and Justin doin’ our thing.
Fuck yeah, guys.
PS - (If anyone still fuzzy on what we're doing with BRAZEN, hit me up on Skype, we can rap about it / we'll add you to the doc where we keep everything.)
