With all the talk of the piss-poor booking in the WWE, courtesy of the whipping boy/girl of the day (Vince, Stephanie, Paul E.) I got to thinking about who I WOULD like to see with the book. Here's some thoughts...

First, I thought a bit about Ric Flair, if only to keep him from being booked as the top card's job boy. Then I remembered some of his past exploits as a booker. While not the worst possible choice (taking into consideration the horrible booking he's suffered through-He HAS to have learned what NOT to do!), he may not be the best long-term choice either.

How about John Laurinidas (Johnny Ace)? He's responsible for some of the few good matches WCW had in the months before the closedown. His style is the Old School, King's Road (Puro LOVE, baby!!!) booking, where matches last over 10 minutes and are actual matches, not mindless spot-fests. The problem is, while detrimental to the health of the wrestlers, the unwashed masses LIKE mindless spotfests, and human chess matches bore them.

That's all I have now, what do you guys think?

Heyman!

He is doing a great job with SD! I think it is time he pulls double duty to bail out the sinking ship!

Good idea, BUT... Having him do double duty may put too much stress on him and result in the WHOLE product sucking. Let the man have his domain, and just work on what needs to be fixed.

The entire f'n writing staff should be ran off and given to the Wienerville posters!

Seriously though, I think a council of head writers.. maybe Johnny Ace, Paul Heyman, and Terry Taylor if Vince doesn't hold a grudge overseeing the product, with seperate writers for each show. Think they all have their good points(Ace is the master of finishes, Taylor can book feuds that build excitement, and Heyman can make just about anyone useful), and together, they could book a damn good WWE.

But that's just me.

Dormouse, the problem with Heyman is that he had no business sense, not that he couldn't book. He could write compelling TV, but once running ECW took up enough of his time, he lost it. Now it seems he's got it back with SD.

Honestly, I'd go out on a limb and suggest Raven for a booking spot (if not head). He's shown a knack for writing, and doesn't seem like he'd be that selfish (there's a difference between the Dreamer/Raven epic and squashing everyone you aren't friends with).

Okay, "Terry Taylor if Vince doesn't hold a grudge".

In all seriousness, Vince has NO RIGHT to feel anything approaching a grudge towards Terry Taylor. On the other hand (because of the career-killing "Red Rooster" gimmick) I would not bat an eyelash if Terry were to walk into Vince's office one day and proceed to change the shape of Vince's skull with a crowbar.

"grudge" indeed!

My ideal writing team for the whole WWE.

Mick Foley & Paul Heyman (head writers)
Micheal Hyes
Johnny Ace
Raven
Terry Taylor

That would be one hell of a creative force to be feared!

Lock these guys in a room for awhile and see what type of stuff would come out. I know *I'd* be watching!



On June 27th, 2002, the Montreal Expos (number one on the MLB contraction list) added MONEY to their payroll, aquiring Bartolo Colon. In a time like this, there's two quotes that come to the forefront;

Is Bill Watts Still around? He'd put Jeff Hardy in his place.

In all seriousness, though, Smoove K for head WWE booker!

How about Bob Mould?
Okay, I'm just a mark for Husker Du, but there might be some advantage to be gained from bringing in a guy who (based on his WOL appearance last summer) seems to have pretty good sense for the basics of wrestling, and who won't have any specific agenda. Of course, you can imagine what the lockeroom reaction would be. Enough wrestlers can't tolerate the idea of non-wrestlers passing judgment on their matches; you can imagine what someone like Bradshaw would think if a soft-spoken, openly gay (yes I know about Pat Patterson, but Bob's less cartoon character gay, and more real world gay), former punk musician who's never stepped in the ring got the book.

My vote goes to Heyman too.

Though I'd really like him to be sitting where Lawler is sitting now - next to JR.

Johnny Ace. Old School, like, where the storylines center around wrestling and stuff.
Also, just let Fit Finlay book the women's division too. He's done a really good job imo of upping the level of wrestling that goes on in ladies matches. Trish, in particular, has improved tons in the last year.

Ric Flair was given the book in 1989 by the NWA. STILL my favorite year ever for a promotion. And the first thing he did was put someone over for the World title. (as opposed to Nash putting himself over the champ as booker) Then came the Flair-v-Funk feud which was GOLDEN.

Mould already was on the WCW booking committee in 2000, as well.

Heyman, as head booker because most of the good matches on WWE Tv last year were booked by him. Also he was responsible I think for Austin's heel turn.

Foley would be alright as a writer of promos and skits as well as the Guy who wrote TV Funhouse.

I like that team a lot but just drop Foley. He should stay retired and watch his kids grow up.

Has Foley ever booked?

I'd add Gerwitz to that list as an interview guy, because the guy's responsible for most of the good Rock promos and the Booker-Goldust stuff. Just don't let him book matches.

Heymann put ECW down the tubes, refused to make Tommy Dreamer a Champ for more than a week, rufused to push RVD, And if he pushes people like he pushed Shane Douglass, The WWE will go down the tubes faster than the WCW/Russo days.


My Vote goes to Shane Mac. He could do no worse than his "Precious Sister."
