"The Revolution is Coming"

Footage of civil unrest, with a big, sketchy red X on the sceen, with an industrial metal sounding music theme playing?

................ugh. -_- Please let the thing that actually gets revealed from this, be very very far from what it's looking like so far.

If some heel guy comes out with black attire and a red X on their clothes, starting a revolution and wreaking chaos on the WWE, coming out to an industrial rock theme, I'm going to be really pissed off.

Hahahahaha, I would laugh Razz

Maybe Vince or his writing team are e-fed lurkers?

It makes sense, there have been some pretty epic storylines over the years. It's a good place to get ideas.

Myron and I have written so much over the years that has been replicated in WWE/WCW/ECW/TNA. To some extent it shouldn't be surprising though. After all, in e-Feds we're trying to replicate real wrestling, so our thinking on storylines and characters that should work should be very similar when you think about it.

Having said that, some stuff has been ridiculously close. If they introduce a three stage iron man Mach, I'll sue their asses off!

Lol that will probably happen at some point. Someone's going to think it up eventually! What was the closest thing they did in a storyline that was like what you two did first?

Like DS says we always tried to think of stuff that could happen in the wrestling so it wasn't really a big surprise when we saw stuff that was very much like ours! I'll have a think about the one that got nearest...I'm just back from a road trip to Galstonbury (the place not the festival)/Stonehenge/Winchester and my mind is a touch fuddled...Wink

By the way, it's been leaked what it is.



It's Matt Morgan.


Matt Morgan from TNA, is going to WWE. This is a promo for his new character, whatever it is, and whatever name he'll be going by.

Ah Myron you should have said you were in Glastonbury, it's only a 15 minute drive from me and Rob, I would've come over. Bit weird, inat?

I remember Morgan from WWE, well kinda. He was quite generic as I recall. Have they got anything good lined up for him?

other than a series of promos that look like Mike Rocket created them, I have no idea.

How dull...Matt Morgan has about the same amount of charisma as a soggy, shit covered bit of bog roll.

I'd totally forgotten people where so close by!

As for Matt Morgan he did a little better in TNA, as The Blueprint, but I can't say I'm that excited. They have already killed bringing back Albert. Lots of 'oooo, look at me, I'm scary' promos and then...well, nothing...he's pushed into being the GMs hired gun. Why bother?

At least the gimmick they give him should be better than the stuttering one...man that was bad...

If used correctly, Morgan could be an excellent addition to the WWE. He's got a good look, and can work well as a big man, so it's not surprising WWE have gone after him. He'd be a good guy for Ace to push.

As far as close to our writing goes, I think Moredcai came extremely close. Some of the stuff when HHH and Michaels feuded also came close. And we did some stuff with Homer which was later replicated with Angle. But then Homer was designed to be Angle meets Brock anyway.

My worry isn't so much Morgan himself just that I've got a feeling they'll juts push him A.N Other big guy. If used properly then he's a good one to have. I just sense another Albert.

Yeah, both of Thorn's gimmicks came close, as The Cyberstar started out as The Vampire. As I'm into cybergoth Novaar was more UV that Hardy to begin with...that changed! Wink
