And those KC matches
I think Reynolds has always been a bit underrated. It's easy to point at him and say, well he never won the big one so he must have not need good. That to me slights not only your ability, but the ability of the guys at the top when Reynolds was in that position. When people point to him and mention the lack of a World Title, they overlook what he did actually accomplish. His midcard singles runs were solid and he had a face and heel title run. Most guys can't say that. Sure, we can and have debated RRRs place in history, but I do believe they served a purpose. They were sort of the bridge between different eras of tag team RPing. A lot, if not all the teams before RRR were serious teams. The first few teams after RRR weren't afraid to take chances and not be serious all the time. Yes, Strikeforce were no where near the level of Saxoteur in terms of being goofy, but I'm not 100% convinced that you could have transitioned straight from RRR or the Sons of Destiny type teams to a Saxoteur type team.

I was not a fan of how his initial run ended though. It had been teased for weeks that he had serious neck issues and one wrong bump could not only end his career, but cause permanent damage to his long term health. Then in the TLC match, the bump did happen when Howard shoved him from the ladder to the floor outside and it essentially wrote him out of the match. On the next show he faced Howard, and spent 95% of the match kicking Howard's ass, until Howard got a fluke roll up for the win. Then at the next PPV Reynolds lost to Runn (on another fluke roll up) with little fanfare and just left. Yeah, you put a couple guys over on the way out, but aside from a lack of build to the RRR implosion, I felt like Reynolds got in way too much offense over his last few matches considering he was mostly a flashy wrestler who had a major neck issue. The return though was very well written. His attitude change made sense and his return to a fan favorite in the feud with Abel was nice and he got a big win and a proper sendoff. It was a true high point for me to get to write his final match, and the visual of Austin hitting Bloody Sunday off the top of a ladder is one of my favorite things I've ever written. Reynolds may only be a fringe Hall of Famer, but when you look at his career as a whole, it's better than most people give it credit for.

GM, now there is a guy I have opinions on. When you brought him in for our feud, I was unaware he had a short run back in the day. When the feud first started I think it was doing a good job building to something fairly big. There came a point though, where I got very frustrated with what was happening. The biggest issue stemmed from the major difference in opinion between creative and myself on Mikey. The team felt that after watching his friend and tag team partner get taken out, that Mikey should have been this serious vengeful character who was going to stop at nothing for revenge. The thing was, he very much wanted revenge, but he went about it in his own way. The team wanted me to write Mikey as a serious character, but that wasn't and never would be what he was all about. Yes, I wrote some very serious RPs over the course of my time, but most of them revolved around how fragile Mikey truly was inside. He has always been a guy who does not handle loss well. NSL once told me I made him cry with an RP because of the emotion it conveyed when Mikey ran into his ex gf who was now married. In his sadness he got well drunk, took home some random girl from the bar, did the deed, then felt extremely remorseful over what he did because he realized ever since Rose left his life he had basically just ran through random groupies in an attempt to fill that void. The RP ended with Mikey sending the bar girl away, typing out a heart felt text to Rose, but then deleting it all and deleting her number before he fell back in bed remarking "wish I didn't care about you anymore, but I do." That's who Mikey is, he was never really an angry vengeful guy and I could not get that across to creative. They wanted me to write him the complete opposite of what he had been written his entire career. I tried that and the results weren't good on my part. To your credit, you did not give up though and did your best to make the feud work. I think in a way that is why it ended up being so drawn out. How many PPVs did it last? I want to say three.

I think there came a point when we were all just waiting on Howard to return once it became evident that at the time I didn't have what it took to pull off an RP capable of giving Mikey a W. Neither Shotaro or myself were happy that we got stuck with Derek Jacobs though. He was easily one of the worst characters and RPers in the fed, and we wanted no part of him on Team Strikeforce. We wanted Ricky Runn. We had it all planned out how it was going to go down and how the three would band together to combat TSA. We begged and pleaded, but we still ended up with Jacobs who tanked us so hard. On top of him never addressing why he defected from TSA, he constantly felt like an odd man out. It was like Booker T in nWo or Heidenreich as a member of LOD, it never felt natural. Plus, after he spent weeks writing shitty RPs where he was just suddenly a face with no explanation as to why, and never trying to actually gain the trust of the guys he had just screwed over a few PPVs back, he pitched that during the match he sacrifice himself for the team. He literally pitched that his character die in the ring so he could get a heroes send off. By that point, Meeks has sucked all the fun out of RPing for me, and I was just ready to move on to anything else. Despite that, we had War Games....oh and a fucking tank. the War Games match at KC is arguably the best match in WZCW history. KB gave the thing an A+ so no one can ever take that away from us. Howard, Mikey, Jacobs, Westoff, GM, DC, Runn, and the other guy whose name escapes me off hand could all be written in a segment on the next show where an asteroid lands on them all while inside a fetish club for guys who like to be dressed as babies and tied down and spanked by old women in Big Bird cosmtumes and we would still have War Games....and that god damn net gun.

I'm a bit sad that after that, GM didn't really do anything of note. Ty Burna had been written off by this point, so having GM take over the job of supernatural heel seemed natural. I would have loved seeing more made about GM having those powers.

So with us being knotted up at one KC win each, it's only natural that one day down the line we have the rubber match and blow it off once and for all.

Every character has the potential for fun moments, it's the beauty of what we do. You can literally spend months jobbing out opening matches, but get one solid idea and run with it and you can turn it into a good storyline. Outside of the most generic characters and a couple of handlers who flat out refused to progress their characters, there really isn't anyone I hate.

Of course on the current roster I'm partial to the established characters, especially now that I'm off creative. I don't need to read each Titus RP to get the gist of what Lee is doing. That's harder with unestablished guys, because they have to set up the backstory and if you don't read each RP, then you will probably miss an important detail.
