  2. Entrance (open)
    * The lights dim *

    * @FailFaceFTW enters wearing a suit. He waves his arm in a presenting motion to show Justin Magnus coming out. Magnus enters wearing a jet black hoodie and navy blue jeans, carrying a microphone. Both men walk to the ring and enter, and Magnus begins to speak. *

    "You know, when I made that open challenge, I have to be 100% honest with you guys. I didn't think anyone had the balls to come out and face me, and what do you know... Someone with no balls comes out to face me!"

    "But lets put that aside for a second and talk about you Harriet. You see, I think when Aids saw you as premier talent, he made a mistake in the form of a very common misconception. People these days think that talent and skill are the same thing. But I assure you, they are not..."

    "You see, talent is something you're born with. Talent can only get you so far before you need skill. Skill is something you train and work hard to get. Now how does this apply to you? Well lets see, you recently won a qualifier match for MITB against mid card wrestlers. However, your recent matches against main event wrestlers have seen you get the big L on your scorecard."

    "It takes less talent than skill to wow people, and you are a prime example. Everyone, especially Aids, were all like, look guys, it's a girl that can beat low card wrestlers in style, lets put her in the main card! You climbed the card with your talent and dissapointed everyone with your skill after having a glimpse of the main event."

    "But who am I? Who is this unknown jobber who walked into IWT one day, beat a couple of low carders, and is talking smack to a supposed "main eventer"? All I know is this, I walked into this company looking to wrestle, and found out that management likes for us to have promos before the match. That's fine on my part, just know this, I'm a talented talker, but a skilled wrestler."

  3. *Harriet wastes no time, she rushes down the ramp, discarding her mask and hoodie before sliding under the bottom rope.*

    'You came here to wrestle... Well done.'
    *Harriet gives Justin a slow clap*
    'Why exactly do you think everybody else came here? To fucking square dance? If you want credit for that then you're going to be disappointed.'

    'I was impressed with your debut, I won't lie, but you said it yourself- they were all low card wrestlers. So at MITB you'd better be ready to go against the bigger kids.'

    'I thought I'd be generous and give you this warm up since none of the others would even grant you that...or even have the stones to show up.'

    'You can critique my wrestling all you like, as far as I'm concerned you're another nobody that just can't admit that I'm about to go places here in IWT.'

    'Talk as much smack about me as you want, it has no bearing on me- just like the other assholes that think their opinion actually matters to me.'

    'Come MITB you'll see the talent, the skill and the strength thay I have when I destroy every single one of you in that ring.'

    'You and everybody else will eat their words.'

  4. "I mean, where exactly are you going with this? With your losing streak that you just broke against some jobbers and your constant "I don't care what people think about me" spiel, you're beginning to sound like a broken record."

    "You don't have the ability to become main event quality Harriet. Yeah, you've been close, but Trip said it himself, close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, not IWT. I'm surprised he even gave you a spot in the MITB match."

    "I've stepped up Harriet, now its time for you to step aside. And unlike you, I won't dissapoint."

  5. 'You stepped up?'
    *Harriet rolls her eyes, before giving Justin a pointed look*
    'You win one match and suddenly you're main event material? Is your manager filling your head with this nonsense? Because if this is his doing, I suggest you do the smart thing and get rid.'

    ' I don't believe that you'd be so stupid as to actually think that one win against nobodies equals absolute greatness. Or are you as green as they get?'

    *Harriet steps back, squinting at Justin, figuring him out. She shakes her head and takes a breath before proceeding*

    'I'm already on my way to main eventing, more so than you are. Those losses have only made me better and I'm more prepared than ever to go the distance and get the title that I deserve.'

    'Trip sees what I can accomplish- he stated that himself. So if you don't see it too then you're either blind or stupid. I'm assuming it's the latter though.'

    'Save your strength for MITB sweetheart, you'll need it.'

  6. @Delik - you wanna use the google forms or just go with the old style? I need the forms if you wanna do it that way. I would like to use Kayfabe/In Character, Entertaining/Quality, and Potential. Like a trial run since its a Dark Match. Of course -it helps if people VOTE

  8. Nice job guys. I had to score FailFace a lil lower on the Kayfabe scale for using "jobber" a couple of times. Majour came close to doing it too, but using something like "nobodies" like she did is better IMO.

    And I kind of like the "used potential" category when it comes to actually thinking about that when voting. Almost like asking "do you think they could have done a better job?" Low scores mean YES and high scores mean NO - I think anyway. Makes sense to me.
  9. Wait...Isn't Potential switched up? I thought 1 meant they have room to improve and 10 meant they reached their maximum potential?
  10. I thought thats what I said??? Just a little differently. Room to improve = They could've done a better job = low score. Max potential = they did a great job, no need to improve = high score. Right? And I'm looking at potential in the match, not potential as an overall competitor (which is kind of what it sounded like when you said it - could've took it wrong).
  11. Yeah, but the voting says differently. The poll says the opposite? Or am I reading it wrong.
  12. Oh right, shit. Wel thats how I scored it when I did it. Damn you @Delik *shakes fist*
  13. How about correction. (It was my idea :tough:)

    For The Potential Category: 1 Means they have a lot of potential improvement and 10 means they're good and the promo doesn't need improvement

  15. I voted the way that Tsar did. Does that mean I should re-do my voting?
  16. Shoot he might not be around until later this weekend. Going to a concert I think
  17. The way I did it was the intended way of voting "Potential."
  18. Yep I remembered that it should have been called 'used potential' after I made the thread, because 1 on used potential means they did bad, 10 on used potential means they did well.

    This will be used from now on
