Reasoning Behind Updates in the Let's Play Lacking

It was less then a month ago that I placed a post on this site saying that things would be moving back to normal and that I have figured out a way to get some new content. I said that with changes made in the let's play series it is prompting me to allow you the viewer to predict what is going to happen before it does. This would be a competition of sorts with the winner getting to pick from a list of prizes previously mentioned. (Click Here to view)

However, for one reason or another it has been a few weeks and another post hasn't come. Though I don't think many of you are that upset about it I will say that ultimately that is the reason why I chose to stop. I know I sound kind of petty considering my reasoning for not posting is totally reliant on this idea not so much that nobody was doing it and more so, because I realized after the fact that it was too soon to do something like this. I was growing before the series was ready to grow or even I was making too many chang…

Let's Play ROH: TV Show Predictions

We have returned!!! After around two years consistent new post have returned to this blog. Now this doesn't mean I have discontinued the site. I just developed an idea where finally both sites can benefit. Now for those who have been long time readers of the blog then you probably recognize the name How I Would Book it. Well I ended that series in favor of entitling it just simply Let's Play ______ then the companies name. Even since I started this series back in 2011-2012 I have made changes to it normally to the title, but still.


Over the last few weeks I have really been trying to think of a way to up the fan interaction for the series and I think I stumbled upon a great idea. I would post a preview to each show a few days earlier to allow for some predictions from you and then I would track by giving point when you guess correct. Then you have the leader board with those who have mounted the most points and post PPV I will reward the top two winners with a prize. This bein…

Differences in Writing for a Site vs Blog Part 3

Over a lot longer period of time then I though it would be I have been writing about the differences between writing for a site and a blog. In the first part I gave a good amount of background into well who I am and what happened to all the posts from me like I had been doing a few years ago. Then in the second part it was a more basic post focused on opinion well now it's time for the organized post. This post is focused on well let me just get into it:


Professionalism is Must for all writers on Sites: I am just going to come right out and say it that the stigma of being professional just because the fact that your writing is seen by more is complete bull. Being biased as a writer is bigger negative, because it disallows you from seeing both sides and possibly even writing a better article looking at the same topic from two different perspectives. However, the stigma of saying F*** or Bullshit or any other mature language has a negative stigma as people believe you sound uneducate…

Differences between writing for a Site vs Blog (Part 2)

Sorry for the delay guys and gals on Part 2 of this series, I know it's been a while but I have had a lot going on over the last few weeks so there you go. Now let's get back on track:

Last time we were here I was talking about leaving this blog and doing the real site full time. But then I also mentioned about the fact that within a year I hated writing for the new site and wanted to quit all together. The reason that I refuse to mention the name of the company or the site is because I moved on and love writing again, also I have no ill will towards them at this point. Even if I don't agree with how they do business I harbor No ill will towards them.

When I was writing for the .com site I was told that I had to be mature, unbiased, and most important professional. Well I will tell you that their were times when it was hard, but by the end I really didn't care about the rules or getting terminated because I didn't enjoy it anymore. That is where writing for blog ma…

Differences Between Writing for Blogs & Writing for a Site (Part 1)

Well my friends this is the first time that I am actually behind my keyboard writing original content for this blog in a while. But I feel like this is what you guys deserve so I found a way to give it to you guys and make you all happy.

As you can tell from the title above this will be more then just a one time thing as this is just part 1 of the series. That's right for the first time in almost three years I will actually be doing a small post series here on the blog. The reason is simple I am doing it just as a thank you to you guys and gals for the continued support of this blog even after the consistent posts stopped coming out. Which like I mentioned in an earlier post I am extremely grateful and appreciative for. Now with that out of the way it's time to move onto the meat of this post and the start of this series.


In all honesty as I always try to be I don't really know how many of you know why the posts stopped coming and why I walked away from blogger. Well it…

Break My Back & You Made Me Humble

Though the title may not fit the post I thought that if I was going to do a post then why not make the title something that could catch your eye rather then the same old thing. I will tell you guys something that in the very near future I will be putting a post on this site and not something that has already been posted by me somewhere else I will actually post original content.

The reason being is because I feel you guys and gals deserve it because almost after 5 years all of you still come around and read this blog. Even though I have really been gone from this blog for almost two years the support hasn't stopped. The sporadic posts haven't stopped you guys and gals from visiting this blog. I can't put into words what that means to me, I mean the only way I might be able to is the above title. You broke my back and made me humble & I am forever grateful. 

For reasons that will remain a secret right now I don't want to ramble to much, but what I will do is say tha…

Looking for Some Help for a Wrestling Site Survey

Image
I am taking a class in college and our term project is one where we have to develop our own brand. I chose a wrestling site and part the project is doing some Market research to try and figure out the market we are in and the current state of said market. Considering my brand is my wrestling site I have chosen to put together a survey based on research of people's habits and they look for in a wrestling site.


Once again this is for school so if you could help me out that would be much appreciated. If you have some free time on your hands:

Thanks For The Help, It is Much Appreciated!!!

WWE Fast Lane 2015: PPV Predictions

Image
WWE Fast Lane:


WWE Tag Team Title Match: (c) The Uso's vs Cesaro & Tyson Kidd
As the Tag division gets smaller and smaller in my book the expectations of this match should be getting higher, because the smaller the division the more weight it puts on the shoulders of the teams in the division. I do firmly believe if they give this match the time it could be a good match, as these teams I feel have good chemistry in the ring with each other. I think Cesaro and Kidd walk away with the titles after Nattie turns heel helping Tyson & Cesaro win.
Divas Title Match: (c) Nikki Bella w/ Brie vs Paige
Though this has been like much of the diva feuds of the past with the fact that this feud has gotten a lot of TV time leading into this match. However, I still fear that WWE isn't ready to give the divas a good amount of time for their matches just yet. I have a funny feeling Nikki will win with help from Brie and this may set up a tag team divas match for Mania.
Goldust vs Cody Rhode…

Much Deserved HOF Induction Expected on Raw Tonight

Image
As of this writing there has been rumors going around the worldwide web that tonight on Raw the first Hall of Fame Inductee for the class of 2015 is expected to be announced. This induction would be long over due for a very deserving and respected legend of the business. The man is someone who will be the headliner of this year's......... "Macho Man" Randy Savage.

This induction goes along with the yearly mending of poor relationships the WWE has had with some of their legends over the years. A few years ago it was Bruno Sammartino finally not only coming back to the WWE after years of bad relationships with the company. Last year was the return of the legend The Ultimate Warrior, Warrior had a very poor relationship with the WWE and had been on poor terms with the company for the last 16-18 years. Sadly, Warrior passed away shortly after finally returning to the company. Unfortunately the much deserved induction of Randy will come after Randy has passed away, but at lea…

TNA The Future Looks Different

Image
With tomorrow being TNA’s new beginning aka their debut on Destination America, I figured it’s only fair to put forth a large post out ling TNA going into the start of a new era. TNA beginning on Destination America tomorrow is the also the end of a 9 year run on Spike which could’ve ended better, but let’s move forward. To say that 2014 has been an easy year for TNA wrestling would be a drastic understatement as 2014 has probably been the hardest and most testing year that TNA has ever had to go through in their existence. From losing so many top talents like Daniels, Sting, Styles, Bully, D-Von, Kaz, and others to contract issues. Well Bully may likely comeback once everything is sorted out with the TV deal and once they get the important stuff out of the way, not saying Bully isn’t important it’s just if they are planning on re-launching the company they have a long road ahead. Also who could forget probably the most interesting few months TNA has had in years when people kept wond…
