LOOKING FORWARD TO …
1] STRIFE/STRYFE - CASTOR STRIFE making his return to the Frontier after his Fall from Grace is obviously a huge deal, but it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. He’s got the imposter STRYFE to worry about - looking forward to that reveal. Related to that, I want to see this conversation that CASTOR and ALEX AUSTIN are more than likely going to have at RELOADED 18. Castor did a little PEE-EYE work and realized that Austin is all sorts of involved w/ STRYFE. Should be a great, non-title centric story.
2] TRIATHALON - Not much explanation needed here. Looking past the fact it’s for the WORLD TITLE and that IMPULSE, HARMEN, and BRYANT are Big Boppers in the Frontier lineup, this match stipulation alone is epic. Impulse is trying to cement his legacy. An aging Harmen is (really) desperate to win the gold. JB is just getting back from the brutal Best of Five and he’s looking to prove that he’s still the force he was before. Great storyline opportunities abound.
3] UWA - There’s a lot of great ideas in the hopper w/ the UWA right now and I want to see them come to fruition. The showcase at RELOADED is going to be a major first step there. I know the UWA has always been there as a Development League, but never really mentioned. That started to change w/ me using it as where JB trained, then TEDDY ALEXANDER burst on the scene (which had a great built-in feud with JB … come back, Voss!) Billy also had LUCKY SEVEN work/train there and now it looks like we’re going to push it to another level. I’m excited to see this.
4] PETER WINDHAM - He’s gold. Pretty much sums that up. The great thing about a character like Peter/writer like Billy is that he can be highly entertaining doing whatever. That said, I think with a solid angle behind him, the Last of the Windhams - he should call himself Hawkeye - will absolutely tear shit up. From a selfish standpoint, I love that Lane is interacting w/ him. Good stuff.
5] NKOTB - We had a couple new faces drop RPs in the BRAWL/RELOADED threads, which is great. I’ve read a bit from XAVIER LANGSTON before and he’s a really, really solid character. Looking forward to what Brian puts out there. Then there was a Strawsma sighting! I’ve been around FW for five years, maybe, and I’ve read a bunch of his work - great writer. Glad to see him in the NFW (love that his character is rising up through UWA). So … welcome!
Alright, I’m tired of writing on this right now. I’m going to come back with another part tomorrow.
