2020.07.12 13:14 gh959489 Codependency Summit Starts JULY 13TH (Sharing)

You Don't Need Others Validation Any Longer

Codependency is tied to childhood experiences. When family dynamics are such that children grow up feeling invisible, unheard, and unworthy of having their emotional needs validated, a negative program is downloaded into the subconscious mind. It can take a lifetime to undo what was done when the mind of a child is most impressionable.

Codependency is an invisible pandemic that can cause;

When you are codependent, your mind ruminates over what other people think about you. It is NOT your norm to focus on your needs, your wants, your beliefs, or your goals.
Life becomes a matter of fixating on others and becoming what you think others want you to become.

Thankfully there are ways to overcome codependent thinking.

2020.07.05 20:18 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of letters D-F in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

Below is a rundown of letters D-F of Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf
D-F
d’abo, Henri & Tatiana: John Henry Erland d’Abo is the grandson of the 9th Duke of Rutland (more info on what these titles all mean can be found here: https://www.debretts.com/expertise/essential-guide-to-the-peerage/what-is-the-peerage/). Tatjana is his wife. Henry is the chairman of Wilton Payments Ltd, a private company that helps with financial intermediation. He and Christopher O’Neill are the primary shareholders of the company. O’Neill is Tatjana’s half-brother, a British-American financier, and husband to Princess Madeleine, Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland, a daughter of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden.
d’abo, Mrs. Jennifer: British entrepreneur who passed away in 2003. d’Abo was once married to Peter Cadbury from the family of the famous chocolate company. Peter did not work for the company, but he and Jennifer d’Abo had a son together. Their son, Joel Cadbury, became owner of the Groucho Club, a watering hole often frequented by famous people. Three years after Cadbury sold the club, their website became the center of a child pornography scandal (link to story: https://www.sott.net/article/242698-Groucho-Clubs-website-forum-hit-by-child-pornography-scandal)
D’Alessie, Carman: This name turned up no results, however, we can safely assume that this is actually Carmen D’Alessio, the international nightlife guru who helped spawn Studio 54 and other famous clubs. She is a party legend with countless celebrity ties.
d’Arenberg, Prince Pierre: Family lineage can be traced back 1000 years. European royalty. Extremely wealthy not because of his ties to nobility, but because his mother, Margaret Bedford, was an heiress to Standard Oil (Exxon).
d’Uzes, Jacques De crussol: The 17th Duke of Uzes. Not much else found on him. Margaret Bedford married into his family shortly after her divorce with Prince Charles Auguste Armand d’Arenberg, father of Prince Pierre d’Arenberg.
Dabbagh, Amr A.: A wealthy businessman/investor from Saudi Arabia. Dabbagh recently faced corruption charges but settled with the Saudi Arabian government. Has ties all around the world, as he is a member of and/or serves/served on the boards of the World Economic Forum, London Business School, Cleveland Clinic, Jeddah Economic Forum, Harvard Institute for Social and Economic Policy in the Middle East, etc.
Dahl, Sophie: ‘90s-’00s model-turned-author and maternal granddaughter of famous author Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, etc.) Dahl has been seen in photos with Ghislaine Maxwell.

Dartmouth, William: The 10th Earl of Dartmouth. Member of the European Parliament from 2009-2019. Became a stepbrother of Princess Diana when his mother embarked on a 2nd marriage with Diana’s father, John Spencer.

Davies, David & Linda: Sir David Davies is a wealthy banker and businessman with deep connections. A family friend introduced him to David Rockefeller back in the ‘60s, which helped him get his start. Linda, daughter of a Chinese-Malaysian tycoon, is his second wife. They were married for over 20 years but are now divorced.
Davis, Michael: A current partner at N3 Media, Davis has had many jobs. He started out working at CAA, one of the top agencies in the world. Check out this list of celebrities and athletes that they represent (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Creative_Artists_Agency_clients). Davis then went on to produce movies and TV shows before transitioning to digital media.
Day, Nick and Heather: Not much to be found on these two. There are several articles that speak of their ranch in Kenya. Apparently, it is a fairly popular spot where people stay to get some rest and solitude.
de Andrade, Marcelo: An international banker (not the serial killer) who lives within one mile of Epstein’s mansion in NYC. de Andrade was married to Lisa Bjornson, a successful banker and higher-up at J.P. Morgan Securities back in the ‘90s.

de Cabrol, Milly: A high-end interior designer based out of NYC.
De Cadenet, Alen: Alain de Cadenet is one of Epstein’s many Formula One contacts. Someone here probably knows more about de Cadenet, but he used to be a racecar driver and now works for ESPN and the Speed Channel as a host.
de Clermont-Tonnerre, Hermine: A French princess who used to have a penchant for partying. The only daughter of Charles Henri, 11th Duke of Clermont-Tonnerre, Hermine was one of 500 guests invited to Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother’s 100th birthday back in 2000. Hermine got in a motorcycle crash a month ago that put her in a coma.
De Georgiou, Anouska: A former British Playboy model who claims that Epstein groomed and raped her as a teenager when she met him in the 1990s. Her experience with Epstein is detailed in this article (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9974171/anouska-de-georgiou-jeffrey-epstein-rape-claims-nbc-playboy/). She speaks about how Epstein was able to lure her into the life as a young girl.
De Soto, Fernando: Very difficult to pinpoint. Best guess is that this is the Head of Real Estate at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in Madrid, Spain. I could be wrong, but this is the one that made the most sense.
Dedieu, Jean & Paulette: Nothing found.
Del Bono, Luca: Co-founder of Quintessentially Group, a hospitality group that specializes in leisure, travel, and tourism.

Dickenson, Debbie: Supermodel and actress. Sister of the more famous Janice Dickinson.
Dickinson, Janice: One of the most successful models of the ‘70s and ‘80s, Dickinson has been occasionally labeled as the first ever supermodel. Opened her own modeling agency in 2005. Ironically, she accused Bill Cosby of raping her back in 1982 and wrote about it in her memoir. When called to the stand during Cosby’s trial, Cosby’s lawyer pointed out the differences between Dickinson’s testimony and her account of the incident in her memoir. Dickinson said that her accusations of Cosby raping her while under oath were the absolute truth, while she took “poetic license” with some of the details in her memoir.

Dorrit was the First Lady of Iceland from 2003-2016 after marrying President Olafur Ragnar Grimsson in 2000.

Doss, David & Christy Prunier: David Doss has worked as producer and/or executive producer on NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, Oprah in Africa, Primetime (with Diane Sawyer), Anderson Cooper 360, and Live PD.

There is a great article detailing Dubin and his wife’s relationship with Epstein here: https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/09/glenn-dubin-epstein-questions). Summary of the article: Dubin was the first one accused by Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre. Rinaldo Rizzo, Dubin’s chef, testified that sexual activities occurred between Dubin and a 15-year-old girl, which led to him and his wife quitting as personal chefs of the Dubins. Dubin’s wife, Dr. Eva Andersson-Dubin, dated Epstein for a long time before she married Dubin. The couple was so close with Epstein that even after Epstein was convicted in 2008 and officially a registered sex offender, they invited him to Thanksgiving dinner and wrote a letter to his probation officer that they trusted him around their children, who were all minors at the time. Multiple sources say Epstein was actually their children’s Godfather, but a spokesman for the couple denies it. Glen Dubin and Epstein helped each other with their business ties, as well. Dubin also had other ties with Epstein (personal friends with Les Wexner and others). Dubin and his wife are definitely major players in the Epstein saga.

Ducrey-Giordano, Francisco: Likely the owner of General Vegetables out of Italy. No further info found.
Duesing, Paul: An interior architectural designer who has worked on luxury and personal resorts all around the world. Duesing claims Epstein tried to hire him to work on Epstein’s home on Epstein’s private island back in 2002, but Duesing declined because he didn’t like Epstein. Says he doesn’t even know how Epstein got his number in the first place. Perhaps it was Duesing’s ties with the royal family. He tells stories of getting the Queen Mother drunk, being close with Lord and Lady Lloyd, working on the home of Mohamed Al-Fayed, father of Dodi, Princess Diana’s boyfriend who died in the car crash with her.
Duke of York: Prince Andrew, the toe-sucking pedophile (allegedly), himself. Photographed with victims, Epstein, and Maxwell many times over. His reputation has been completely crushed.

Duthie, John & Charlotte: John is primarily a television director based out of London. Duthie also won some poker tournaments against some of the world’s best players in the early 2000s. His wife, Charlotte played a big role in Sir James Goldsmith’s political career as a member of the Referendum Party back in 1997. Goldsmith received 3.5% of the vote in Putney, a constituency located in London.
Dzhabrailou, Umar: Umar Dzhabrailov is a Russian politician and advisor to Sergei Prikhodko, the current First Deputy Head of the Russian Government Office and Deputy Prime Minister of Russia in Dmitry Medvedev’s Cabinet. Dzhabrailov was rumored to be romantically linked to Naomi Campbell, supermodel and one of the main suspects in Epstein’s underage sex scandal, in the early 2000s. Dzhabrailov, a supremely wealthy businessman, ran for president in 2000, garnering 0.1% of the vote as an Independent.

Edsel, Lucinda: No info found.
Edwards, Andrew & Tracy: Unsure. There was an Andrew Edwards and Tracy Edwards on linkedin who have a background in finance, but it is not conclusive whether or not they are the ones listed here or if they are even married. There is also a Tracy Edwards who is a former British sailor who used to work as a Project Manager for Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and now teaches children of Internet safety and online reputation. This would be a far more interesting connection, but I cannot find anyone by the name of Andrew with a relevant relationship to her.

Back in 1997, Elwes organized the Hong Kong handover party in order to aid the Hong Kong Cancer Fund. Guests included Anthony de Rothschild (eldest son of Evelyn de Rothschild); James Hewitt (former cavalry officer who revealed that he had an affair with Princess Diana while she was with Prince Charles.

The BBC has also refused to investigate claims from an ex-Top Gear presenter that Evans “grabbed her breasts and touched himself.” When Evans was 35, he married 18-year-old pop star Billie Piper. They eventually separated and divorced years later.
Eveheart, Angie: Angie Everheart was one of the most well-known models of the 1990s. She has accused Harvey Weinstein of masturbating in front of her.
Faber, David: Due to the London area phone number listed, this is likely the former Conservative member of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. His maternal grandfather, Harold Macmillan, was Prime Minister of the UK from 1957-1963. As of 2010, Faber was to become head of Summer Fields, his former prep school. Summer Fields, an exclusive all-boys prep school, has come under scrutiny in the past. Tom Parker Bowles, son of Camilla Duchess of Cornwall (Prince Charles’s wife), has claimed that Summer Fields was “a hotbed of the sorts of things that are coming out now,” according to this article (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2812235/Tom-Parker-Bowles-former-headmaster-dismisses-food-writer-s-claims-old-primary-school-hotbed-impropriety-complete-rubbish.html) from the Daily Mail published in 2014.

Notable annual meetings: GameStop may generate the most drama of the annual meetings next week with the company's board up for re-election.

Barron's mentions: Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) makes the cover this week with the company in the middle of the political firestorm. For investors, the bigger issue than the culture debate is that the stock is valued at a sales multiple lower than social media peers. Food suppliers Sysco (NYSE:SYY), US Food Holdings (NYSE:USFD) and Performance Food Group (NYSE:PFGC) are recommended with sales volume slowly recovering. The publication notes that large investors like KKR and Trian Fund Management are taking an interest in the sector. There is also a reminder that COVID-19 drug trials are progressing. Eli Lilly (NYSE:LLY) is testing its antibody in a Phase 1 trial. Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:REGN) is also set to begin testing this month, while a collaboration between Vir Biotechnology (NASDAQ:VIR) and GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE:GSK) will begin trials later this summer. If the trial results are positive and the pandemic remains intense, emergency authorization of some of the drugs could follow.

Charlie Brown plans to celebrate the holiday by curling up with a big book that weighs nearly as much as he does, Tolstoy’s “War and Peace.” The book’s weight doesn’t stop him from lugging it to Lucy’s pre-party dance class, where he cuts a mean rug with a rollicking Patty. With just 1131 pages to go, Charlie Brown takes another break, this time for the party, and summons the courage to invite his true love, the little red-haired girl. She doesn’t respond, but hapless Chuck shows up anyway—with Tolstoy in tow. Then, he settles down with the book—on a porch swing in a snowstorm—and in so doing, misses the evening’s big surprise. In “She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown,” disaster strikes as Peppermint Patty heads to her first major ice-skating competition with coach Snoopy and faithful companion, Marcie, by her side. As always, the unassuming Woodstock flies in to save the day (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

2019.09.18 21:55 rageofthegods [Other] Universal Studios is the last studio signing First Look Deals. Here's a comprehensive look at all of them. [Part 1]

I have a confession to make: of all the five majors, Universal Studios is my favorite. I know they're a massive corporation that probably doesn't care what I think, and I know they're owned by Great Satan Comcast, but for some reason, year after year, I just can't help but be charmed by Universal's weird-ass slate. Universal's releases - minimalist horror, r-rated comedy, traditional musicals - are living proof that there's no such thing as a dead genre.
Of course, part of the reason why their slate is so weird and eclectic is the myriad First-Look Deals they've signed. At a moment when most other companies are culling their rosters, Universal is the only major studio to have the same number of deals now as they had fifteen years ago. (Disney-Fox technically has one more, but that's a combination of two studios and will certainly see some culling soon).
High profile articles have been written about Universal's new deals with producers like Lord & Miller, Paul Feig and Amy Pascal, which got me thinking: just how many First-Look Deals has Universal signed? And how have they panned out for the studio? How might any fresh ones pan out in the future? Let's take a look. A first look, phnyeh hyeh hyeh.
We'll see how this first installment does and if I feel up to go through the rest of the list, but for now, going off of Hollywood Reporter's list, I'll try to get to all of the deals over three installments, with a conclusion and my thoughts when it's all over.
For this comprehensive look, we'll take a look at what kind of projects these producers have made in the past, what kind of projects they're working on, and a brief overview of what kind of box office value these deals might add.
(At first, I added Domestic BO totals for each produced movie, but then I got tired)
Judd Apatow -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Famous for effectively starting the R-rated comedy wave of the mid-00's and early-10's. Judd Apatow is currently signed on to a first-look deal with Uni, although the trades won't say how long that relationship lasts. With Universal, Apatow has directed/produced a number of comedy hits, including "Bridesmaids" ($169.1m) and "Knocked Up" ($148.8m). Apatow's fortunes declined with the rest of the R-rated genre, he still had a good number of hits in the mid-10's, most notably "Trainwreck" ($110.2m) and "This is 40" ($67.5m), although he also backed a number of flops, such as "Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping) ($9m !!!)
Although his box office hot-streak has cooled off, he remains active. He's currently signed on to direct a comedy movie with Pete Davidson, set for release June 19, 2020.
If Trainwreck and, most recently, Good Boys has proven anything, it's that there's still very much a demand for R-rated comedy in the Apatow mold. The nice thing about being parked with NBCU is that it seems to provide direct access to SNL alums like Kristen Wiig and the aforementioned Pete Davidson. Other famous SNL or NBC alum who've appeared in Universal films include Bill Hader, Amy Schumer and Tiffany Haddish. That seems to be a bit of an X-factor for Universal comedies when compared to other studios like Lionsgate and Warner Bros, who are more likely to cast career actors (eg Jason Bateman and Rachel MacAdams in "Game Night," Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen in "Long Shot.") Put another way, Universal casts comedians who can act, while other studios cast actors who can comedy. Or something.
Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman/Brownstone -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A husband and wife producing duo who are currently behind both the "Pitch Perfect" series and Sony's recent "Charlie's Angel" remake. Elizabeth Banks herself has had a storied acting career, ranging from "Spider Man" to "Slither," and often appears in the movies she produces. The two actually met in college, it's a really cute story.
Their big accomplishment is obviously "Pitch Perfect," which appears to be the only major series they've made with Universal. Still, it's a damn big one, and a major accomplishment: "Pitch Perfect 2," directed by Elizabeth Banks, broke the record for highest OW for a debut at the time ($69m).
They always seem to have a dozen projects in line, ranging from a Flintstones movie with WB to the Tinkerbell movie with Disney. As far as Universal goes, they've been developing a "speculative thriller" akin to "Handmaid's Tale" called "The Grace Year"; think "Hunger Games" but the tributes are all of the women of a country. It's a neat idea with some real potential, but it's difficult to find comps as of now.
As for how they fit in Uni's slate, it's pretty obvious from the projects they've backed so far that they're championing women-centered franchises, which remains a lucrative market given the high-profile successes of stuff like "Captain Marvel" and Banks and Handelman's own "Pitch Perfect" series. I see no reason why this relationship won't continue to be lucrative, especially if "The Grace Year" ends up being a minor "Mockingjay 2" level hit.
Tim Bellman and Eric FellneWorking Title Films -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Working Title is one of Universal's longest-running partnerships, beginning in 1998 when then Uni CEO Edgar Bronfman brought them on to create "non-studio movies." There are conflicting reports as to whether or not Working Title is actually a subsidiary of Uni or not, but what is known is that the two guys at the top, Tim Bellman and Eric Fellner, do communicate regularly with Uni brass to create strategy. The two British producing partners have produced some eclectic titles over the years: "Billy Elliott," "The Theory of Everything," "Baby Driver" and "The Darkest Hour." They produced a ton of Coen Brothers movies, like "Hail, Ceasar!", "Barton Fink," and "The Big Lebowski."
As of now, they have their hands in a ton of pots: they're producing "Last Night in Soho," Edgar Wright's London-based psychological thriller, Nisha Ganatra's LA romance "Covers," and Tom Hooper's horrifying fantasia of the whisker-people "Cats."
I don't know how they choose their projects, but it's nice to have a fresh perspective in things. One notable project is "Johnny English Strikes Back," an action-comedy that did appallingly in the US ($4.4m!) but managed to gross $159.1m WW off the strength of the Europe gross. It shows that Universal does have a few production partnerships that look to the global market for their grosses, which is kind of neat. Their position as one of the UK's biggest production houses helps them tap into premier British talent like Mike Newell and Richard Curtis. "Cats" and "Les Miserables" production credits might point to a connection to the London West-End theater and musical properties, which, if tapped, could potentially be very lucrative.
Jason Blum/Blumhouse -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The one you've heard of. Jason Blum started out in producing with the infamous low-budget smash, Paranormal Activity, for Paramount before shopping around to various studios, eventually landing at Universal with a 10 year deal, effective till 2024. With Universal, he's launched some surprisingly durable multimedia horror brands, including "The Purge" and "Insidious," as well as hefty one-offs and revivals like "Halloween," "Split" and "Glass." Only time will tell if the Gods are merciful and we get a Blumhouse "Scream" sequel.
Honest to God, I fucking love Blumhouse, even more than other horror houses like New Line and A24. True, they don't always make the most polished movies, but that's part of the charm. It's like they have just enough money to put on a good show while also investing just little enough to where filmmakers are allowed to go nuts. I mean, just this past year we had Octavia Spencer>! almost cut Luke Evans's dick off!< and M Night Shyamalan make a superhero movie that's mostly therapy sessions and a paean to the virtues of clapping-your-hands-if-you-believe.
If New Line is the Pottery Barn of horror, then A24 is the local gallery, Blumhouse is the County Arts Faire, and Amazon Prime is a garage sale in that part of town, where the stray dogs limp and the weeds choke the driveways.
In terms of future movies, I mean, Jesus, where to begin? Blumhouse has a massive amassed library, they're constantly pumping out new content. Going on Wikipedia, there are 9 projects on the "undated" list alone. In terms of stuff they're definitely making that will probably be released, there's "Black Christmas," Sophia Takal's reboot of the classic Bob Clark Slasher, "You Should Have Left," veteran screenwriter David Koepp's adaptation of the amazing German horror novel of the same name, "Halloween Kills" and "Halloween Ends," the latest movies in Blumhouse's Requel series, "Purge 5," the supposedly final installment of James Demonaco's madhouse series that somehow became better with each installment. "Invisible Man," Leigh Whannell's first movie in Blumhouse's rebooted dark universe, and "Spooky Jack," an animated film with Dreamworks made by "Captain Underpants" David Soren.
I'm not going through all of those, but still. Blumhouse has uniquely fit into Universal's slate as a low-budget powerhouse that punches far above their weight.
An interesting thing about Blumhouse: Jason Blum has talked in recent years about how Blumhouse's independence is important to them. Upcoming titles like "The Gallows 2" and "Fantasy Island" have been going to other production houses recently, which makes me wonder if they're planning to cut loose after the first look deal expires. Whatever the case, it'll be interesting to see a world where studios bid on Jason Blum's talent.
Dylan Clark: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Veteran film producer that used to be part of Fox partner Chernin Productions, who was involved with Fox's surprisingly amazing "Planet of the Apes" reboot as well as WB's eternally delayed "Batman" movie. He's had a solid run of blockbuster-adjacent titles, but had one underperformer with "Oblivion," ironically created by Universal.
Currently, he's reportedly working on a "Scarface" and "Battlestar Galactica" reboot for Universal. Both of these keep seeing delays, and it's unknown when they'll eventually come out. Still, they're there. "The Expendables 2" Antoine Fuqua is currently overseeing a script for "Scarface" that focuses on immigration issues, while "Battlestar Galactica" just got a reboot on NBC's streaming service with Sam Esmail at the helm. Unknown what's going on there.
He was also signed on to produce the "Gears of War" movie for Universal, when (if) that eventually comes out (maybe after the Nintendo properties run out?). Along with Paul Feig and Sam Esmail (now there's a combo), He's also helping to produce a comedy called "False Alarm," from some guys who worked at "Silicon Valley" and "It's Always Sunny." Pret cool.
The logic behind bringing Dylan Clark here is pretty clear: he, along with others, helped take an ancient property at Fox along and make a relatively healthy tentpole franchise out of it. That's not easy to do, and NBCU has long weathered the reputation of being "that one without the IPs." Bringing on a hand that can revive old IPs like Battlestar and Scarface for theatrical films is a smart move to make. Maybe they could park some money in front of Zemeckis's house and get a BTTF sequel going on? The "Gears of War" connection is funny also, but it makes sense; gritty, sort of real-life sci-fi describes both the PotA and GoW properties pretty perfectly. If only, between that and "Halo," Universal wasn't the home of film adaptations of Microsoft game IPs that are stuck in development hell.
Michael DeLuca -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Career producer who's helped run Dreamworks and New Line at various points in his career. Up till 2015 he's been at Sony, first as a producer then working in their production department. He's had one of the most interesting, checkered histories in a producer I've seen so far: with an ethos of "working from the gut," he's backed flops like "Ghost Rider" and "Love Guru" along with bona fide classics such as "The Social Network," "The Sister's Brothers" and "Moneyball." Overall, it adds up to an impressive resume for a career producer, including three Academy Award noms. His big success at Universal is the "Fifty Shades of Gray" series, which made bank and creeped out boyfriends nationwide. I mean, isn't that abuse?
An interesting story: apparently he and current Universal CEO, Donna Langley, met in a bar while the latter was still working as a hostess. He actually gave her her first job in entertainment at New Line. And she considers him a mentor too! We all love a good reunion tale.
As of now, he's connected to a bunch of projects, including James Gunn's "The Suicide Squad," as well as multiple different potential franchise-starters for Universal, including acclaimed TV-director Michelle MacLaren's adaptation of the Shadowline comic "Cowboy Ninja Viking" (which was originally gonna release this year but is instead being delayed out of script concerns) and Amblin-produced and Kate McKinnon starring "The Lunch Witch," as well as the Amblin-produced Halloween kids movie "The Gates."
He has a reputation in Hollywood as a steady operator who can shepherd troubled productions and get things made, and that's not an inconsiderable talent. Some time or another, I believe "Cowboy Ninja Viking" is gonna see a release, so we'll see where the future takes him after that.
Vin Diesel and Samantha Vincent -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Otherwise known as "THE FAMILY."
Vin Diesel, popular actor, D&D enthusiast, recommended by ten out of nine Rocks as a "Candy Ass," is the main actor of the "Fast and the Furious," "Riddick," and "xXx" movies. Along with his sister, they produce all of these films.
Really not much to say here, as there aren't really many projects they're attached to besides those specific franchises. "Fast and the Furious" remains a cash-cow to end all cash-cows for Universal, so it makes sense to keep their stars on board with a gravy train.
It is notable that a longtime F&F producer, Neil Moritz, has been dropped from future films due to pay disputes. With that in mind, it's interesting to imagine if Diesel decides to take more control of the franchise in light of that. That's about all I can think of, though.
Paul Feig -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DO YA GEDDIT, PAUL FEIG? Ahh, Red Letter Media.
Paul Feig has an interesting history. A college dropout, he got his start as a Universal backlot host, working in standup on the side before breaking into directing with Judd Apatow's series "Freaks and Geeks." He went on to be a regular fixture in the sitcom directing world before going on to make hit feature films like the Apatow-produced "Bridesmaids." Until being booted during the chaos of the Disney-merger, Paul Feig had been parked at Fox, making high-grossing spoof movies like "Spy" and "The Heat." He also became a polarizing figure with the all-female "Ghostbusters" reboot, whose surrounding discourse became so exhausting so very fast.
As of now, he just finished directing the Universal rom-com "Last Christmas," starring Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding as two Manic Pixie Dream Girls destined to melt the other's heart. Along with the aforementioned "False Alarm" with Sam Esmail and Dylan Clark, he's also set to direct an original Universal Monster movie entitled "Dark Army." Besides that, IMDB lists a dozen and a half projects for his production company, Feigco, ranging from TV movies to pilots; among the ones that seem to be getting off the ground, there's "24-7," a women's empowerment comedy about accountants directed by Eva Longoria, and "American Princess," a project originally set up at Fox that starred Issa Rae of "Insecure" fame. He's also producing Meredith Dawson's rom-com "When Michael Met Carrie...and Other People." Other projects seem to be in the logline stage right now, with no directors or writers attached.
If you read the Hollywood Reporter article on the vanishing Producer deals, you'll note that many studios are trying to go for producers who can write and direct along with produce; think JJ Abrams. Studios perhaps think that these producers are middlemen between the content and the distributor, while writers still at least produce the content. Paul Feig certainly fits in that mold, and besides like, one high profile disappointment, he's been a pretty consistent crowd-pleaser that's brought in big comedy hits in the era of decline.
He's been pretty good about working with up & coming comedians like Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinon, so being hitched with NBCUniversal should give him a good pool of emerging comedy talent to pick from. His producing credit with WMMC...aOP could suggest a fruitful, Apatow-esque producing career on the side. We'll see how brightly his star can keep shining when "Last Christmas" comes out, but for now, it's quite a coup.
Tina Fey -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Actress and former head-writer of SNL, creator of "30 Rock" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt." At Universal, she's produced and acted in numerous TV shows, as well as a smattering of comedy movies like "Sisters," which was a modest success in the face of "The Force Awakens."
Mostly, her work has been in TV. Recently, NBC ordered from her a comedy series starring both Tina and Ted Danson, which she will produce alongside Robert Carlock. Otherwise, it's mostly been quiet on the film front.
I don't know anything about TV, so it's tough for me to comment on Tina Fey's involvement. Still, it ties into what's increasingly becoming a pattern here: that Universal works hard to retain their SNL talent for their film division. That's smart, and it helps create a reliable well to draw from, like what WB has with James Wan and Andy Muschietti and Disney has with John Favreau.
David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman/Mandeville Films ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The duo behind a dozen Disney projects. Hoberman was originally president of Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group during the 90's boom years, backing movies like "Ed Wood," "Honey I Shrunk the Kids," and "Nightmare Before Christmas," while Lieberman was senior vice president of finance at Hyde Park. Both split off to become producers in 1995, when they formed Mandeville. There, they produced movies such as 2017's proto-Cats billion grosser "Beauty and the Beast" as well as other hits like "Wonder" and "Stronger." They moved their banner to Universal in 2018; until then, they'd had a first-look deal with Disney. Their big production with Universal so far was 2018's "Extinction," a medium-big budget sci-fi movie which got dumped on Netflix. They can't all be winners, I suppose.
As of now, there doesn't appear to be any projects in the works with Universal specifically. The duo are producing the "Hunchback" movie for Disney (please go dark), along with "Prince Charming" and "Chip 'N Dale: Rescue Rangers." IMDB lists a "Sinbad the Sailor" movie, but who knows where that's at right now.
Again, another group of solid, franchise starting producers with a proven eye for literary adaptations and remakes. Between De Luca and Clark, that's starting to be a pattern as I go through the Universal lineup, proven franchise people getting big deals, presumably with the understanding that they'll potentially create Uni's next big franchise after F&F and Jurassic World go away.
Chris Meledandri -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The man who basically started Illumination Entertainment. Originally an executive at Disney, he went on to become Fox Animation's head executive, leading the acquisition of Blue Sky Studios and overseeing the creation of the "Ice Age" and "Alvin and the Chipmunks" franchises. In 2007, he left Fox to found Illumination Entertainment with Universal Pictures in a co-ownership situation. Over the course of Illumination's History, they used a low-cost animation model to launch some of the most profitable franchises in existence; "Despicable Me 2," e.g, was Universal's most profitable movie ever up to that point. After NBCU's acquisition of Dreamworks Animation, Meledandri was appointed as a consultant to the company Dreamworks.
As of now, Illumination is making a sequel to "Minions," "Despicable Me 4," "Sing 2," and a Super Mario movie. Another original movie, made in collaboration with Pharrell Williams, is planned. As /boxoffice should know by now, all of these movies will be tremendous, colossal flops that will lose hundreds of millions of dollars. At Dreamworks, he is producing sequels to the "Shrek" and "Puss in Boots" franchises.
No question about it. Of all of Universal's big decisions, this is arguably the one that paid off the most. The low cost, high return model of Animation is like Jason Blum's horror house on steroids, super-charging Universal's box office take and helping to build their record-shattering hall in 2015. Reading the profiles and writeups of Meledandri's career, you get the sense that Meledandri changed the way Universal saw producer mega-deals. During an Allan & Co. media event, then vice-chairman Ron Meyer pretty much credited the studio's turnaround to Meledandri.
It's not hard to see why; Meledandri has done the 21st century impossible by taking original IPs like "Despicable Me" and turning them into blockbuster franchises with billions of dollars worth of gross. It's no exaggeration to say that Universal struck pay-dirt with Illumination; and looking at the studio's other major deals with producers - oftentimes former head executives at major studios much like Meledandri was - it's not hard to see it as working from the blue-prints that Meledandri laid out. Will any of them pay off like Meledandri has? Only time will tell. Still, take enough shots and one or two are bound to hit the target.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well, that concludes this installment. Tbh, I don't know if this was helpful or not, but I can only hope that maybe we all learned something, maybe we gleamed some insight, or maybe y'all disagreed and wanna talk about it, that's cool too. Doing these 11 was a little exhausting, but it was certainly informative and I definitely hope to continue this and give a general armchair analysis of Universal's strategy when the deals are successfully parsed. The next group of producers are interesting too, including folks like Kevin Hart, Lord and Miller, and Amy Pascal.
Until then, thanks for reading this monstrosity of a post, and please leave your thoughts below! I'm dying for a good conversation.

Kraven had injected Peter with a serum that altered his genetic code, turning him into a lizard creature, to punish her for defeating him.
There's a fight, she falls...
She's able to get Peter the cure and it starts to work...
He catches her with his web. He's saved her.
She has Peter back. She's saved him.
But then the crack...
But then the wounds from battle...
Kills her.
Kills him.
He, devastated, cradles Gwen in his arms, lifeless.
She, broken, cradles Peter in her arms, unmoving.
"I saved you."
Gwen figures out pretty quickly when it happens. It's another universe. She's sees Spider... Man. It's odd to hear that for her. But hey, different universe, go with it.
Her spider-sense almost pulls her to the school. She has no idea why. Thank God the computer software isn't much different here, though seemingly a few years ahead (weird), but she's able to fabricate credentials to get in. And she waits. Hacks into an ATM for cash to get food, clothes and a hotel room. Going stir crazy... she stops a couple muggings, considers finding Spider... Man. Ask him what his story is. But decides to avoid the interfering in other realities thing.
Prime Directive, and all that.
She smirks at that. And for a brief moment lets herself think about him. Peter would be so jazzed to be able to see this. Another universe.
But the feeling fades quickly and she feels the weight of it crushing her chest. She takes a shower. Cries...
Goes to school the next day. New kid makes a joke. She laughs. She thinks she hasn't laughed really in awhile and doesn't want to think about why.
I'd want a continuation. Though I've also toyed with the idea of rebooting from scratch.
Brainiac is our villain. Michael Rosenbaum is back as Lex.
As far as overhaul:
KJ Apa as Clark
Dylan O'Brien as Lex
We start this season off with the first episode being a sort of new beginning for the group.
Our opening is essentially a showcase of this. Joe's begun his job, Caitlin is basically being a superhero on her own in her spare time, Cisco is living a normal life, and Ralph has begun looking for an old flame of his: Sue Dearbon.
But in the opening scene alone we see things aren't gonna be simple, when Barry's introduced to his new partner, August Heart.
Perplexed by this, knowing of him from Nora's future, he digs into information, but can only find that he was in a coma for nearly a year after the speedforce prison incident and that his brother was murdered around the time of season 1.
But in the first episode, his questions are answered by none other than Eobard Thawne himself. He's the villain of the premiere and is caught at the end, held in the pipeline. He'll play a Hannibal Lecter role in the season. Eobard explains that in the future he manipulated someone to take on the the fake name August Heart, someone he knew of from Flash history books, and told him where he could find a way to become a speedster and where he could get the costume, as a way to make issues for Nora, in hopes of manipulating her.
At the end of the season premiere the post credits scene reveals that someone has broken into the STARCHIVES and has taken all of their tech.
Investigating this, Barry's lead to local tech conglomerate businessman Evan McCulloch. But Barry can't prove it. No matter how he tries. His money and connections make it nearly impossible to pin any crimes on him.
He's our main villain for the first 8 episodes as The Mirror Master. Basically raised his entire life in an orphanage, no parents and bullied for his intelligence, his philosophy has become that of a belief in escalation. If something powerful is introduced, he deems it necessary to come up with something to overpower that. He's been running the underground smuggling rings of weapons and metas for years, with Goldface and Amunet running the front of it. He leads a team of rogues going into this season made up of tech based characters, Abra Kadabra, a cured Mark Mardon Weather Wizard (he'd taken as a part of a deal for parole, but is given the wizard's tech wand by MM signaled to his DNA, bonding it as a version of meta-tech of sorts), Pied Piper and Golden Glider.
Barry's arc this season is about him beginning to deem it necessary to detach from his emotions to get the job done, thinking it their emotions is what's made it so they've been manipulated by Thawne and others as much as they have.
Over the first 8 episodes we'd develop August Heart's development into Godpseed. Looking up to the Flash as a hero and seeing in Barry as a friend, even bonding with the team after finding out his identity, thinking of them as the only family he's had since his brother died. This all comes to a head in episode 8 when, after having defeated Mirror Master and his rogues, Evan McCulloch uses his connections to buy the court and gets set free, threatening that he will release everything about Barry to the public, then watch as the wolves of metas and killers descend onto Barry and his family, and kill them. August snaps at this and straight kills him.
The next arc deals with Godpseed as the antagonist for Barry.
Then Red Death as the villain in the last batch of episodes.
Teresa Palmer as Dinah Lance/Black Canary
Molly C. Quinn as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl/Oracle
Jessica Sula as Helena Bertinelli/Huntress
Logan Lerman as Barry Allen Shailene Woodley as Iris West Graham Verchere as Wally West Tiffany Espensen as Linda Park Andrew Garfield as Eobard Thawne Dominic West as Henry Allen

William is placed in the system after Felicity and Curtis are arrested.
Black Siren is eventually caught by ARGUS.
Oliver's in prison for about 4 episodes, until he's made an offer by General Eiling, whose taken over ARGUS: To lead Eiling's personal Suicide Squad. Made up of Slade, Black Siren and Roy. And he'll gain a pardon and be able to take his son home, so that he won't grow up without any parents in the system and will make sure William is put under witness protection to protect him for the Longbow Hunters.
The Longbow Hunters are made up of Lady Shiva, Constantine Drakon, Cheshire and Onomatopoeia.
Oliver's deal with Eiling eventually puts him into conflict with Barry in the crossover, which leads to a Civil War situation. Which concludes with Oliver, in a statement of no more compromises, turning on Eiling and revealing Eiling's plan to the public and the government, which results in Oliver getting pardoned for his crimes and released.

Nowhere To Run
MAY: Cut it out Peter. I've tried to stay out of your way. I've tried to be a cool Aunt, I didn't wanna stress you out, because I know how Ben's death affected you. Don't think I haven't noticed how much you've changed since he died. Staying out til late, your grades falling, your lies about your bruises and cuts! Now cutting detention and leaving the hotel room in Washington! I'm not an idiot. So you tell me what's going on, or so help me...
PETER: I lost the Stark Internship.
MAY: What?
PETER: I thought I could do more, be more. It's my responsibility... To do as much as I can.
MAY: What are you talking about? What happened?
PETER: Getting the Stark Internship... I thought I could. Make Ben proud. Honor him. Use my power responsibly. But I messed up.
MAY: Peter, you can't do this to yourself. You're a good kid. But you have to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders all the time. Losing Ben... It doesn't mean you have to do everything, be everything. Because you can't. And it's okay to admit that.
Nora: I thought it was the better premiere we've had since the Pilot.
Blocked: I enjoyed the it more than I have any of the 2nd episodes of the seasons.
The Death Of Vibe: I thought it was about 2nd best for me as far as 3rd episodes go.
News Flash: I think Going Rogue, Family Of Rogues and Elongated Journey Into Night are better.
All Doll'd Up: Is at least in the top 3 of #5 episodes for me.
The Icicle Cometh: I think its story is more interesting than most of Shade, with The Flash Is Born and When Harry Met Harry... but those eps are arguably better constructed to me and I think Enter Zoom is more interesting in story and better structured.
THE FLASH'S BIGGEST FAN:

THE DOCTOR IS IN:
TEAM ROGUE:
MY NAME IS EOBARD THAWNE/GORILLA GRODD VS. KING SHARK(?):
PRISON ROGUE: Barry finds himself trapped, looking like meta serial killer.
As Barry attempts to contact the outside world, when Eobard nearly kills a meta villain, the team suspects something is off with the Flash and investigate the changes.
Siren X, Magenta, Weather Wizard, Shade
NOWHERE TO RUN: Eobard finds himself cornered. With the team knowing who he is and seeking to get Barry out of the meta prison, he begins to dangerously unravel. The team helps Barry escape and he confronts Eobard, fighting him to his defeat. Eobard is furious, blaming Barry for everything wrong in his life, and taking away his opportunity to be a real hero. Barry simply tells Eobard that he did that to himself and that if he wanted to be a hero himself, he'd be one, not try to steal another's life. Eobard, in a fit of rage states that he sees the error in trying to be the Flash now, saying that the Flash is pathetic, weak and nothing, and that he'll make himself better than the Flash. The post scene is Ralph entering his office to find Eobard there, who tells Ralph that he understands him. Living his whole life feeling insecure about himself and his abilities and how when he tries to achieve greatness, Barry's there to slap him down. Ralph dismisses that thinking, saying that he knows he caused his own problems, same as Eobard did. Ralph then says that the difference between them is that he's accepted that responsibility and Barry understands that because he's his friend. Eobard taunts Ralph before revealing by giving Ralph a newpaper hologram, with the headline titled, "SOCIALITE SUSAN DEARBON FOUND DEAD IN BRUTAL META ATTACK". Eobard evily smiles.
EOBARD: But we both know that that won't last long. When Barry finds out what you're going to have to do to prevent it, he'll try to stop you.
RALPH: Prevent what?
EOBARD: One of the few people in your life that's made you feel worthwhile, I know that to keep that, you'll do anything.
RALPH: PREVENT WHAT?
EOBARD: And of course, in Barry's infinite arrogance, you'll see his hypocrisy. If you'd accepted me as the Flash I'd have prevented it. After everything he did too... or at least tried to do anyway, to save Iris-
RALPH: Prevent what?!
EOBARD: Her death. Your dear Sue: She's going to be murdered.
IDENTITY CRISIS, PART 1: With the knowledge of Sue's future, Ralph works to subvert it anyway he can, even seeking the help of Cicada, putting him into conflict with Barry.
IDENTITY CRISIS, PART 2: Now armed in knowing who Sue's killer will be, Ralph hunts him down on his own.
Sebastian Roché as Doctor Light
THE BEGINNING OF THE END: Barry and Eobard finally confront eachother.
OUR TIME HAS COME: As Cicada enacts the final part of his plan, Barry and the team work to counter the pulse he's created to kill metahumans.
REVERSE: As Eobard attempts to manipulate the speedforce and fill himself with all its power, Barry's forced to take drastic measures to prevent it.

In A Sentimental Mood YouTube Points: 92
"In a Sentimental Mood" is a jazz composition by Duke Ellington. He composed the piece in 1935 and recorded it with his orchestra during the same year.

"A Night in Tunisia" was one of the signature pieces of Gillespie's bebop big band, and he also played it with his small groups. In January 2004, The Recording Academy added the 1946 Victor recording by Gillespie to the Grammy Hall of Fame.
On the album A Night at Birdland Vol. 1, Art Blakey introduced his 1954 cover version with this statement: "At this time we'd like to play a tune [that] was written by the famous Dizzy Gillespie. I feel rather close to this tune because I was right there when he composed it in Texas on the bottom of a garbage can." The audience laughs, but Blakey responds, "Seriously." The liner notes say, "The Texas department of sanitation can take a low bow."

In 1940, Django made two recordings of Nuages in F major, and with a clarinet melody. (Some later recordings are in G major, perhaps to suit the violin.) Unhappy with the first recording, Reinhardt added a second clarinet, creating a renowned arrangement for the December 1940 recording. Reinhardt's 1946 recording (as can be heard in the sample) is in the key of G major. "Nuages" was released by Django Reinhardt and the Quintet of the Hot Club of France on the French Swing label as a single in 1940.

The song soon became a popular and much recorded jazz standard, described as "without doubt ... one of the finest songs the composer ever wrote ... Gershwin's highly evocative writing brilliantly mixes elements of jazz and the song styles of blacks in the southeast United States from the early twentieth century".

Parker stated in 1949 that Gillespie had played no part in its writing, and that others had added the trumpeter as co-composer.It is a contrafact, being based on the harmony of "I Got Rhythm". The first recording of the composition, then known as "Thriving from a Riff", was made on November 26, 1945, by an ensemble led by Parker.

Moon River YouTube Points: 5
"Moon River" is a song composed by Henry Mancini with lyrics by Johnny Mercer.

It became the theme song for Andy Williams, who first recorded it in 1962 (and performed it at the Academy Awards ceremony that year). He sang the first eight bars of the song at the beginning of each episode of his eponymous television show and named his production company and venue in Branson, Missouri, after it; his autobiography is called "Moon River" and Me. Williams' version was never released as a single, but it charted as an LP track that he recorded for Columbia on a hit album of 1962, Moon River and Other Great Movie Themes.The song's success was responsible for relaunching Mercer's career as a songwriter, which had stalled in the mid-1950s because rock and roll had replaced jazz standards as the popular music of the time. The song's popularity is such that it has been used as a test sample in a study on people's memories of popular songs.Comments about the lyrics have noted that they are particularly reminiscent of Mercer's youth in the Southern United States and his longing to expand his horizons. Robert Wright wrote in The Atlantic Monthly, "This is a love sung to wanderlust. Or a romantic song in which the romantic partner is the idea of romance." An inlet near Savannah, Georgia, Johnny Mercer's hometown, was named Moon River in honor of him and this song.

The biography Dizzy characterizes the song as "a pleasant medium-tempo tune" that "demonstrates...[Gillespie's] skill in fashioning interesting textures using only six instruments".
Wave YouTube Points: 2

Thomas Owens describes the composition – "The trumpet melody, one of the great themes in jazz literature, is a 64-measure song in aaba form. The accompaniment for the a sections is in a Latin style based on [...] one of Silver's favorite patterns. In the bridge the accompaniment alternates between backbeat chordal punctuations and four-beat swing. During the solos the rhythm section maintains the same accompanimental textures, which both clarify the form and maintain the theme's original moods and textures."
Stella By Starlight YouTube Points: 2
"Stella by Starlight" is a popular song by Victor Young that was drawn from thematic material composed for the main title and soundtrack of the 1944 Paramount Pictures film, The Uninvited. Appearing in the film's underscore as well as in source music as an instrumental theme song without lyrics, it was turned over to Ned Washington, who wrote the lyrics for it in 1946. The title had to be incorporated into the lyrics, which resulted in its unusual placement: the phrase appears about three quarters of the way through the song, rather than at the beginning or the end.At one point in the film, the main character, Rick (Ray Milland) tells Stella (Gail Russell) that he is playing a serenade, "To Stella by Starlight".

2018.12.15 01:06 DGenerationMC Rebooking the final episode of WWECW

To make it a bigger deal, this would be a two hour show with more of a Homecoming/One Night Stand vibe. Recaps of the biggest moments in WWECW history are sprinkled throughout and Joey Styles returns to commentary for one more night, as well.
Kofi Kingston def. Shelton Benjamin, Evan Bourne & Vance Archer in a Fatal 4-Way Match
Interestingly enough, all three of Shelton's opponents here either debuted against or had their first feud with him in ECW. Bourne wows with his high-flying offense, Archer gives a monster heel performance and Benjamin keeps everything tight with his veteran instincts, but it is Kofi who comes away with the win.
Finish sees a flurry of signature moves, as Shelton hits Paydirt on Archer, only to take a Shooting Star Press from Bourne. Kofi capatalizes with Trouble in Paradise on Bourne for the pinfall victory. All three babyfaces shake hands but Archer walks away in disgust.
Kane def. Chavo Guerrero
In a callback to their infamous WM 24 match, Chavo surprises Kane by emerging from underneath the ring instead of from the stage during his ring entrance. Kane kicks out at 2 as the match starts, causing Chavo to try and get himself counted out. Kane retrieves him and the two have more of a back-and-forth contest. Despite his lying, cheating and stealing, Guerrero takes a Chokeslam in his failed bid for redemption.
Extreme Exposé Reunion
Kelly Kelly and Layla try to pull off a dance routine for old time's sake, but can't get on the same page. The two divas come to blows and Kelly runs her former friend off. Out of nowhere, Terry Funk wonders out on the stage to scare Layla. Funk hugs the scantily-clad Kelly for a funny moment and then suddenly remembers why he's here. He cuts a promo reminiscing about the original ECW but gives credit to the current incarnation of ECW and the talent developed over the years before promising the following match to be a little extreme. The Dudebusters, who'd been watching like a pair of Peeping Toms the whole time, are seen in the crowd disappointed no nip slips happened.
Matt Hardy & Finlay def. Jack Swagger & Mike Knox in a Tag Team Tables Match
Combining the Hardy-Swagger and Finlay-Knox feuds, we see the competitors pair off. End of the match sees Finlay and Knox brawl into the crowd, leaving the two former ECW Champions alone in the ring. Cocky after beating Matt so many times before, Swagger makes a rookie mistake which allows Hardy to put The All-American American through a table to win the match for his team.
The Dirt Sheet with CM Punk
The Miz and John Morrison bring back The Dirt Sheet with a man who's beaten them both on ECW as the guest. Punk and Morrison tease Miz for being the only one in the ring who didn't win the ECW Title. This brings out Miz's tag team partner and a former ECW Champion himself, Big Show, interrupts to complain about not being invited despite his partnership with Miz.
However, Morrison catches on that he's walked into a trap and knocks out Luke Gallows with a Flying Chuck Kick and tries to mount Miz with punches. But, he's still one man against three, so a beatdown commences. Surprisingly, The Hart Dynasty makes the save, sending the heels running. This sparks a face turn and them gearing up for a tag title showdown against ShoMiz at Wrestlemania 26.
Mark Henry, Goldust & Yoshi Tatsu def. The Ruthless Roundtable in a Six-Man Tag Team Match
Goldust and Yoshi had been tormented by The Ruthless Roundtable in recent months and hype a mystery partner to fight with them. That ends up being The World Strongest's Man, who evens the power dynamic between the teams. Kozlov was just kicked out by Regal and Jackson recently so getting back with them inexplicably gives way to him walking out on them, turning face in the process, as the comedy babyface trio wins here.
The Abraham Washington Show with the NXT Rookies
Abe's talking down to the rookies and Tony Atlas' annoying laugh pisses off the newcomers enough to attack them and ruin the set, making an impact a week before NXT premieres while hopefully getting a positive reaction from the crowd. This segment shows a sneak peak of what is to come with NXT replacing ECW. We get a video playing afterwards showing the rookies who will be their pros.
Christian(c) def. WWE Champion Sheamus in a Extreme Rules Match to retain the ECW Championship
After his meteoric rise to the top of WWE, Sheamus returns to ECW with an air of elitism. In a pre-match promo, Sheamus taunts ECW for being the C-Brand and Christian for being stuck there since returning a year ago while Sheamus used the show as a stepping stone to RAW and the WWE Title. Sheamus plans on putting ECW out of it's misery. He promises leave a double champion and throw the ECW Title in the trashcan where it belongs.
Match sees a ton of interference. First is Zack Ryder, who was declined another ECW Title against Christian and then left off the show for annoying General Manager Tiffany in the process. He runs in to screw Christian out of the title as one last FU to ECW. Rosa Mendes, Ryder's valet, served as a distraction for Christian so Ryder stops the academic pinfall on Sheamus after a Killswitch. But, Tiffany sprints down so Joey Styles can shout CATFIGHT and rolls around with Rosa before chasing her to the back. Cue to The Dudebusters marking out in the crowd.
As Sheamus and Ryder are ganging up on Christian, the lights go out and come back on to reveal TOMMY DREAMER in the ring with a singapore cane. He lashes the man who retired him with the cane, taking Ryder out with a DDT onto a stop sign and allows Christian to nail a second Killswitch onto the trashcan Sheamus introduced to retain his title.
Following a short, uplifting promo about both ECWs, Christian and Dreamer embrace as they lead an ECW chant and both hold the ECW Title up before placing it down in the middle of the ring to close the show.

2018.12.12 22:49 Rastin5518 [BB] Big Big House ALL STARS!

Welcome to the sixth season of Big Big House, and today TWENTY people from previous seasons will return, but by the end of the first hour, only fourteen will remain, and the choice for who remains is up to YOU. Well, eight of them at least. The other six will be chosen by me. The eight you chose were:
Dominique Fugie
Bruno Tonya
Rory McGrath
Jared Bertman
Diane Noel
Rachel Carter
Chiziwa Sessue
Athina Kelly
Here is the full All-Star cast:
FROM SEASON 1:
Bruno Tonya: Original Placement: 9th People have said they wanted Bruno to return. Dominique and Buff ran season 1, and fans were desperate to see some nice people win. Bruno rose as an anti-hero and tried his best to get out the pair, but it didn't work, and for defying how the house was supposed to work, Buff got out too soon.
Adaline Ceriale: Original Placement: 3rd Once Bruno went home, a new person had to fight the villain pair, and floater Adaline had to rise. She was great at social relationships, and everyone liked her, and wanted to spend time with her. She managed to get all the way to third, but could not defeat Dominique and Buff. She wants to return for All-Stars to get her revenge on Dominique and Buff.
Dominique Fugie: Original Placement: 2nd Dominique was the first ever HOH in Big Big House, and she made a big impact, getting out threat Arielle. She played a very flashy, villain game, and was seen as more evil than Buff from the jury, so she lost, though people have said she was robbed. Dominique has been on many a season, but has never won, and got her closest on Big Big House, and this time she wants to finish the job.
Buff Arctos: Original Placement: WINNER The first ever winner, and a very strong winner at that. He was a huge threat, winning 3 HOHs, but was never taken out because of his pleas to the rest of the house.
FROM SEASON 2:
Cooper "Fire" Alberola: Original Placement: 6th The first person to return to Big Big House after being evicted. He was just kind of annoying his first run, but once he returned he became an important asset to the rest of the house, and he was used to get out other people and ended up making 6th place. He was a very memorable character, and America seemed to love him.
Rachel Carter: Original Placement: 5th The queen of pawns. She was nominated 5 times, and was a fan favorite. I would love to see her return, and a lot of people would too.
Athina Kelly: Original Placement: 4th Athina absolutely ran her season from beginning to end, and was very good in challenges. It was surprising she made it so far, but it was definitely welcome.
Buffy Summers: Original Placement: WINNER There were a lot of crazy people on Buffy's season, but Buffy was normal. She was a great player, and deserving of the win, but she was less exciting than most people. She wants to play a more flashy game.
FROM SEASON 3:
Rory McGrath: Original Placement: 6th During his stay in the house, Rory used the Veto twice, and once in an epic moment when he used it on his ex.
Clarisse Tiffany: Original Placement: 3rd Clarisse was my favorite person on Season 3, and she was a surprising beast. No one expected Clair to be a beast, but she was a legend. I'd love to see her return.
Geoff Gow: Original Placement: 2nd He is mainly remembered for his relationship with Rory, but he also played a good game and managed to make it to second place.
Chiziwa Sessue: Original Placement: WINNER Chiziwa was put up many times with people expecting him to go home, because he was annoying, but seen as not a threat, he managed to make it to the end, and shocked people when he beat Clair in final HOH, and was a very fun winner.
FROM SEASON 4:
Mary Evans: Original Placement: 8th She was the villain of her season, and for about two weeks she ran the show. She was part of the epic twin twist, but actually was voted out by her own twin.
Sarah Evans: Original Placement: 6th The other half of the twin twist. The difference between Mary and Sarah was that Mary admitted she was an evil person, but Sarah held herself to a higher regard. She got out her twin! She eventually got a taste of her own medicine when she was blindsided by Rinna.
Arianna Fellion: Original Placement: 5th Rinna is known for playing an under-the-radar game, and being a pawn many times, but eventually coming out of her shell. She came out of her shell in a big way, when the week after Sarah used the Veto on her, she got Sarah out. As soon as she became a threat, Rinna was taken out of the house.
Phedra Biggeri: Original Placement: 3rd Phedra was a great underdog, and was a part of the threesome with her brother, Cchaddie, and Ernest DelaCruz. They were both taken out by Mary Evans. She was in a bad spot, but managed to law low and make it all the way to third place, and was a fan favorite.
FROM SEASON 5:
Diane Noel: Original Placement: 8th Diane was an extremely fun player. She was part of a pair with a memorable player in Angie, but once Angie got out, she stepped out of her shell. In an epic moment, she got revenge on Mace by getting out his friend, Stacy, but then was seen as a threat and got out.
Mason "Mace" Qiunti: Original Placement: 4th Mace was the villain of the season, by winning seven challenges. He was so close to winning, when he made a terrible move by getting out Maria Jose, not a threat at all, instead of the biggest threat Jared.
Angel Abasto: Original Placement: 3rd The other half of the awesome Abasto pair, who had fun in the house while everyone else was playing hard, and the only reason they got out was because of a dumb move, and when he went against a pair.
Jared Bertman: Original Placement: WINNER Jared was originally unmemorable, and got evicted 4th, but then surprisingly returned over Jon Prose. He then went on a rage and was a huge threat, but from his great strategy he made it all the way to the end with his partner How Rad and won a million dollars. He is a huge threat, and might not do as well with an All-Star cast.
Here we go! Let's do this season!
The reason I picked Angel over a lot of better players was because the season seemed a little gamebotty. Enjoy!
All Stars!
WOW! I am speechless! That season was great! Those players were playing HARD. The early game was run by Rachel, Clair, and the Evans. Rachel was a star of the early game. Last time she played she was very quiet, and was a pawn a bunch of times, but this time she decided to play HARD. It was sad when she was backdoored, but also awesome. I think she intended to backdoor Clair, but the house was against her, so they got out Rory instead. Sarah and Mary definitely continued their rivalry, and once again Sarah won getting out Mary. Then sadly Sarah went home the next week. I was sad about Diane's performance. This time she was just the old lady who was a pawn a lot instead of the beast she was on season five, but it's alright. I don't know what Clair did to get Diane to go home over her, but it was impressive. Buff and Jared were working together, so when Chiziwa ( in an epic move) used the Coup De'Tat he had no choice but to get out Angel, who was not a threat. I don't get why Bruno and Mace voted out Angel also, but they must have had a reason. It was cool when Clair got out Mace on the double eviction. Even Bruno voted out Mace, who he seemed to be working with, because they voted together and Bruno used the Veto on Mace. It was sad that the whole house went against Chiziwa. Chiziwa was really fun this season, but just wasn't destined to win. I was surprised that Dominique didn't vote for Bruno against Chiziwa. I feel that Bruno is overall a bigger threat, but Chiziwa just seemed like a big threat because of the Coup De'Tat. Athina played a lot like she did last time, with her running the season in an aggresive way. Athina is a really good character. It was sad when Clair went home, but she was too much of a threat. The rivalry of Bruno VS Buff and Dominique DEFINITELY continued. On the second double, he put them both up. Bruno was a really good player. He voted out Buff over Dominique, even though he hates Dominique more Buff was a bigger target. It was fun when he won the next veto and took out Jared. He took out two winners in a row! I really liked Athina, but she was definetly choosing who won when she won final HOH. I feel like she would have also been a good winner though. Last season, Dominique defeated Bruno, this time, Bruno defeated Dominique. I can't decide who I would have preferred winning. It's cool that Bruno got revenge on Dominique. The rivalry of the Castaway players. Bruno won, and he for sure was deserving. After this greatness, I'm super excited to see where this series goes!

She came out of her shell in a big way, when the week after Sarah used the Veto on her, she got Sarah out. As soon as she became a threat, Rinna was taken out of the house.
Phedra Biggeri: Original Placement: 3rd Phedra was a great underdog, and was a part of the threesome with her brother, Cchaddie, and Ernest DelaCruz. They were both taken out by Mary Evans. She was in a bad spot, but managed to law low and make it all the way to third place, and was a fan favorite.
FROM SEASON 5:
Diane Noel: Original Placement: 8th Diane was an extremely fun player. She was part of a pair with a memorable player in Angie, but once Angie got out, she stepped out of her shell. In an epic moment, she got revenge on Mace by getting out his friend, Stacy, but then was seen as a threat and got out.
Mason "Mace" Qiunti: Original Placement: 4th Mace was the villain of the season, by winning seven challenges. He was so close to winning, when he made a terrible move by getting out Maria Jose, not a threat at all, instead of the biggest threat Jared.
Angel Abasto: Original Placement: 3rd The other half of the awesome Abasto pair, who had fun in the house while everyone else was playing hard, and the only reason they got out was because of a dumb move, and when he went against a pair.
Jared Bertman: Original Placement: WINNER Jared was originally unmemorable, and got evicted 4th, but then surprisingly returned over Jon Prose. He then went on a rage and was a huge threat, but from his great strategy he made it all the way to the end with his partner How Rad and won a million dollars. He is a huge threat, and might not do as well with an All-Star cast.

Thank you to everyone who votes! I guarantee the six who don't come on now will come back someday. Any All-Star who wants to update their picture can do so, but it's not a necessity.

2018.05.23 04:45 Paulsaysthought Survivor Maryland All-Stars Episode 5 Blog "Inspector Gadget, Illinois Corn and a Guy Playing the Pan Flute"

EPISODE 5 SPOILERS START HERE
In the words of the great Jessie Spano, "There's no time! There's never any time!". In this week's only hour of Survivor I can manage to actually care about (sorry Wendell), we have the return of a queen, the reunion of a trio, the (near) implosion of a mastermind, the return of the GOAT Survivor Maryland challenge, a Flavor of Love reference, a mysterious black eye, a new non-playable character (shoutout to Maggie, replacing Alex B as our crew member du jour), and more one-liners than you could count on Alex's somewhere between 9 and 10 fingers. But for this recap, we gotta make like Foluke and randomly start a quarter of the way through.
Seriously, though, I know there's people who want to harp on the fairness of Foluke's entrance in the game and I get it, I really do. I just can't possibly bring myself to care. Can anyone (not named Victoria) really argue this season was better without Foluke? No. Granted we're firing on Heroes vs. Villains level cylinders before her entrance, but TBH, if after Tyson and James had gotten voted out, suddenly Richard Hatch had appeared, I wouldn't have complained either. Maybe it's fair, maybe it's not, all I care about is that it makes great television and it gave me an extra 5,000 pull quotes to choose from for this blog.
But, back to the B.F. part of the episode (Before Foluke), we start with Evan really feeling himself, despite not having accomplished a ton thus far. I don't hate the game Evan's playing, I just don't have any faith in his reads of his competition and it really seems like it's going to smack him in the face eventually. And speaking of getting smacked in the face, Chris Thomas has a black eye and it's never addressed. I. NEED. ANSWERS. Or I just need a Chris Thomas reality show, I'm still not sure.
Meanwhile, I hate to have to be the bearer of bad news, but it's apparent our friend Schuble is cheating on his partner Sabrina. Yes, not one week after the greatest love story in Maryland history started, Schubrina is dead, long live Shunuario. Yes, Schuble has a "FWSB" in Alex, they're having a sushi date, they're saving each other week after week, it's adorable.
We get a confessional from Victoria about how different her game is this time without Foluke and before you can say foreshadow, we're back in the Survivor Challenge Arena (which desperately needs a nickname) and it's drop your buffs time. The real fun, though, happens when Austin announces a 16th person and the entire cast turns into GIF machines. And then, here it is, your moment of truth, it's not Tiffany "New York" Pollard, it's better, here's Foluke.
It's important to address the one point of real conflict I felt in this episode, which was watching Victoria react to the return of Foluke. She has a visceral reaction, to the point where it's almost hard to watch. It's clear there's some real raw emotions there and even though it's been two years since the infamous Terrapin Trials, according to Austin, it had been about 3 weeks since airtime. As much as it's difficult to see Victoria put in this obviously awkward position, especially when they end up on the same tribe post-swap, from a show standpoint, it really gives Victoria another extremely compelling story arc and evolves her as a character into an entirely different dimension. Also, Chris Thomas has a moment of genuine empathy for Victoria, which has me immediately replacing Schubrina with ChrisToria at the top of my ships.
But, speaking of the swap, man, do we get some interesting storylines. Furiosa has the SohCahTrio, the Foluke/Victoria dynamic, Sneaky Schuble and Alex and Michelle, who are so caught up in the magic of this swap that even the two of them become interesting! Urukhai gets 3/4 of the double date alliance with LeCompte, Eric and Holli, Chris Thomas and all the rest of the ladies in Sierra, Centi, Ashley and Sabrina.
Foluke does get a special note which she shares with Schuble, and it turns out to be a clue to the first hidden immunity idol! (FINALLY!) Foluke tells Schuble that "Honesty is the best policy" to which Schuble immediately responds by crafting an absurd lie. And, much as I hate to admit it, thus begins the unraveling of Jordan Schuble. The female all-stars are much better at sniffing out the SchuBull and Shannon and Holli are way on top of it.
But, before we can get too far into an idol hunt, it's time for the Survivor Maryland Main Event... Steal The Bacon! (Fun Fact: At a camp I work at, we play a variation of this game, but the kids are not allowed to run directly at each other, because one year a kid got a bunch of his teeth knocked out. Presumably by Eric) We open with an ROTC battle of Sierra vs Shannon and man, props where props are due, Sierra is tough as nails. For no real reason, LeCompte throws Victoria to the ground, and at this point she's having an all time Survivor bad day, on par with Rodney's birthday and that time Alex Berkow allegedly cried.
But, no one cares about the challenge anymore because Schuble's up to something and Shannon and Holli are not having it. I LOVE this play from these two ladies who are both, in my mind, front runners at this point. That storyline doesn't get resolved in this episode, so we return to Steal The Bacon just in time to see Evan get concussed for the second season in a row and probably become so afraid of bacon, he goes full kosher (no Big Tom/Ethan jokes necessary). Luckily, Foluke is there to console him by affirming gender equality, leaving Evan staring off in the distance wondering why he didn't go to Northwestern like his parents probably wanted him to.
Schuble sums up the rest of the challenge for Furiosa by wondering whether he and Michelle "Should get dragged or face-punted" and before you know it, Urukhai wins immunity, but not before Holli wanders off to search for the hidden immunity idol in a set from one of the "Saw" movies. At 29:25 though, we see Foluke celebrating a point to which Eric responds with a chant of "Scoreboard" and between this and calling himself "The new Sleasman", I have to come to terms with the fact that the real twist of this episode is that Eric is one of my favorite characters this season.
We get a brief Schubrina tease, we find out that LeCompte is rolling with Holli even over Shannon (talk about a misread from yours truly) and an appearance from Nicole Centi (keeping that Edgic alive) and we're off to the races with Furiosa. And, in another surprise twist, Alex is here! Well, part of him. I literally cannot get over that I've watched multiple hours of this show and I'm just now finding out Alex lost two fingertips between Terrapin Trials and All-Stars. Also, Foluke was in a coma?! This episode has too many twists.
The SohCahTrio have a reunion dance (weird) and then Schuble lays across them (weirder), but it's time for the main event, FishbowlMania! It starts with Michelle, Foluke and Shannon comparing notes (a Foluke specialty) and slowly but surely, Evan, Micah and Schuble join and all hell breaks loose. They come so close to catching Schuble in his lies until Michelle confesses to saying something she didn't actually say. It's so bad for Michelle and so lucky for Schuble and it's a moment that has the potential to change the outcome of the entire season.
At Tribal Council, anyone who's mad Foluke is back is permanently invited to shove it, because this is an all time great Tribal, complete with nicknames, a spat, a legitimately good play from Alex, an all time dodged bullet by Schuble and eventually, the end of Michelle. In her final words Michelle says that she doesn't know what she could've done different, which I think besides the one obvious flaw is probably true. Michelle was somebody who made no impression on me at all in Terrapin Trials and this season she evolved as both a character and a player and if it weren't for the swap, maybe she makes a deep run here. Overall, I'm actually really glad Michelle was here this season.
The Testudo Award this week goes to Holli who had a fantastic swap, cemented her place with Chris, showed a willingness to flip on Eric if needed and chased Schuble through a field. Now, here's the Survivors we're buying, holding and selling this week.
Buy:
Chris LeCompte: I think he's in a great position post-swap and getting out of the boys club may be just the juice he needs to get to the merge.
Alex: He's meeting with Schuble, with Foluke, with Victoria, he's shutting down Tribal Council before it gets too wild, it's possible he's emerging as a player!
Hold:
Schuble: He had 45 great minutes tonight and 15 that almost spelled disaster. He's turning it around, though, have no fear.
Victoria: As far as episodes go, she had one of the worst you could imagine and she survives it. That gets you a lot of credit in my book.
Sell:
Chris Thomas: Not a great swap for Chris, who will now have to rely on the mercy of LeCompte and Eric or hope for continued challenge dominance. Emphasis on the latter.

Artisans held so much natural talent in design and weaving but lacked the resources to market their products. In the Fall of 2017, through the FSU InNOLEvation Challenge, Hannah began Woven Futures, a fashion company dedicated to empowering indigenous artisan women around the globe while creating meaningful connections within the US.

Good Thursday morning. THE LATEST ON STEVE SCALISE -- “Scalise remains in critical condition after mass shooting,” by Louis Nelson, John Bresnahan, and Jake Sherman: “House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is in critical condition in a Washington hospital, and will require additional surgeries after a bullet pierced his hip, injured organs and caused ‘severe bleeding,’ according to a statement Wednesday night. Scalise, a Louisiana Republican, is in MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Northwest D.C., where he has had at least two procedures, and ‘multiple units of blood transfusion,’ the hospital said Wednesday night. Scalise was brought to the hospital in ‘shock,’ the statement said. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited the hospital Wednesday night, and brought the Scalise family flowers.” http://politi.co/2ru9BWi
-- @realDonaldTrump at 9:41 p.m.: “Just left hospital. Rep. Steve Scalise, one of the truly great people, is in very tough shape - but he is a real fighter. Pray for Steve!”
STATEMENT FROM MATT MIKA’S FAMILY: “Matt suffered multiple gunshot wounds. He recently came out of surgery but remains in the ICU in critical condition and we expect him to stay there for at least several days. Our family is now here with him and we continue to ask for privacy and understanding while we focus on Matt and his recovery.
“Many have asked about Matt and what we can share about him. While the attack today was a terrible surprise, Matt’s presence on the ball field, helping longtime colleagues and friends was not. He is a very thoughtful, fun-loving person who is competitive and loyal; all things which contributed to his continued commitment to the Congressional Baseball Game.”

THE VENEER, SHATTERED. Members of Congress have long thought of Washington as a safe space, of sorts. Sure, they engage in heated rhetoric in the Capitol, waging partisan war from early in the morning until late at night. But their life in Washington is quite sheltered: they exercise in a members-only gym. Many of them sleep in their offices in the Capitol complex. They eat and drink together at partisan social clubs. But we’re hearing a refrain we first heard in 2011, when Gabby Giffords was shot: we’re sitting ducks.
-- FROM USA TODAY’S HEIDI PRZYBYLA: “[L]awmakers including Cedric Richmond, D-La., had expressed fears last week about member safety. Richmond, who chairs the Congressional Black Caucus, raised his concerns directly to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis.” https://usat.ly/2rjOi5ERichmond is a good friend of Scalise’s, as well.
THE SENSE OF SHOCK in the Capitol -- especially the House -- is extraordinarily palpable. The mood was tense all day, and remained uncertain at night. Several House Republicans were texting us throughout the evening, wondering about the severity of Scalise’s injuries. Lawmakers are extraordinarily shaken. Forget party affiliation: Congress -- and Washington -- is a big saga with a set of predictable characters: lawmakers, aides, lobbyists, reporters. And when one gets hurt, sick, injured -- many realize it could easily be them. And a shooting like this is causing lawmakers and staff to take stock of their own safety. Countless lawmakers we spoke to throughout the day yesterday were rethinking their out-in-front, prominent roles in today’s political scene.
CAPITOL HILL REPORTERS were shaken up, as well. First of all, dozens of reporters work in the Capitol every day. And unlike the White House -- which regularly dumps all over reporters and decries their work product as phony -- lawmakers on the Hill are generally cordial with journalists in the Capitol and respect the job we do. We spend years covering lawmakers up close and oftentimes develop an easy rapport with people like Scalise -- savvy pols who successfully make their way up the leadership ladder. Scalise shows up at off-the-record happy hours for reporters at the annual Republican retreat. His office, like others, throws cocktail receptions to get to become better acquainted with Capitol Hill reporters. That doesn’t mean the relationship isn’t adversarial at times -- it most definitely is. It means building a personal relationship -- getting to know each other as human beings -- is important to both sides. We know Scalise, Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarthy, Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer as politicians, but most of us have had many occasions to talk to them on a personal level, as well.

THE POLITICS -- “Democrats wary of reviving gun debate too soon,” by Seung Min Kim, Burgess Everett and Heather Caygle: “One year ago, Sen. Chris Murphy sprang into action almost immediately after a gun massacre at an Orlando nightclub - accusing Congress of an ‘unconscionable deafening silence’ and launching a 15-hour filibuster on the Senate floor. But the gun-control advocate who once argued that lawmakers should put forward ‘legislative action within an hour of a shooting’ was more circumspect on Wednesday after a shooting at a congressional baseball practice in the suburbs of Washington. One tragic incident, he acknowledged, won’t move the needle - even one that affected one of their own, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.). …
“[T]he tone among even the most ardent proponents of stricter gun laws was dramatically different. In multiple interviews, several Democratic lawmakers urged that no, today was not the day to revive the dormant gun control debate. It was too soon, it hit too close to home - and lawmakers simply didn’t want to stand accused of politicizing a shooting that injured a colleague and friend.” http://politi.co/2t50qZx
-- JONATHAN MARTIN on A18 of the NYT: “Their Own Targeted, G.O.P. Lawmakers Want Looser Gun Laws, Not Stricter Ones.”http://nyti.ms/2s3RtBh
ON THE HOUSE FLOOR TODAY --HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER KEVIN MCCARTHY will “offer a resolution to commend the heroic actions of Capitol Police and other first responders, and recognize everyone affected by this tragic incident."
BEHIND THE SCENES -- FROM KYLE CHENEY, our incredibly versatile House reporter who spent the day in Alexandria reporting on the shooting: “In the course of reporting from Alexandria, I had two eye-opening encounters with witnesses that really gnawed at me during such a harrowing moment. I arrived at the ballpark less than an hour after the shooting and overheard one witness – a man possibly in his mid-20s -- excitedly describing the incident in vivid detail over the phone. It was still a murky situation at that point, so as soon as he hung up, I asked him if he could repeat to me what he had seen.
“The man immediately tensed up and told me that there was no way he’d talk to the media because he can’t stand the press and he thinks we’re all complicit in leaking (of what, I’m not sure). I told him I personally hadn’t ‘leaked’ anything but in fact knew and reported on some of the people on the field that morning – and that his information might help provide some clarity at a critical moment. He still refused. A short while later, while holed up in a coffee shop across from the field, I chatted with a young woman who also witnessed the aftermath. She said she took comfort when she found out the assailant had targeted members of Congress – not because she wished them any harm but because it would’ve been more unnerving, she said, had the violence been random. Both conversations were revealing about some of the sad realities we now live with.
“It’s only fair if I also mention that these encounters were exceptions on a day of many kindnesses. Most witnesses were forthcoming with as much detail as they could muster, and I watched as random passersby delivered Gatorade, iced tea and even a bag full of Chick-fil-A to police on the scene. And the police then shared the spoils with journalists, pedestrians and others baking in the Alexandria sun.”
WAPO SCOOP -- “Special counsel is investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice, officials say,” by Devlin Barrett, Adam Entous, Ellen Nakashima and Sari Horowitz: “The move by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump’s conduct marks a major turning point in the nearly year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Investigators have also been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, officials said. …
“Five people briefed on the interview requests, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said that Daniel Coats, the current director of national intelligence, Mike Rogers, head of the National Security Agency, and Rogers’s recently departed deputy, Richard Ledgett, agreed to be interviewed by Mueller’s investigators as early as this week. The investigation has been cloaked in secrecy, and it is unclear how many others have been questioned by the FBI. …
“The White House now refers all questions about the Russia investigation to Trump’s personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz. ‘The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal,’ said Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Kasowitz.” http://wapo.st/2rjkqqo
-- WSJ’s Del Quentin Wilber, Shane Harris and Paul Sonne: “The special counsel also plans to interview Rick Ledgett, who recently retired as the deputy director of the NSA … While Mr. Ledgett was still in office, he wrote a memo documenting a phone call that Mr. Rogers had with Mr. Trump, according to people familiar with the matter. During the call, the president questioned the veracity of the intelligence community’s judgment that Russia had interfered with the election and tried to persuade Mr. Rogers to say there was no evidence of collusion between his campaign and Russian officials.” http://on.wsj.com/2sD4vXP
HUFFPOST and DRUDGE earlier this morning had pretty much the same banner – HuffPo: “BDAY PRESENT FOR PREZ: OBSTRUCTION INQUIRY” ... Drudge: “WASH POST BDAY PRESENT TO TRUMP: MUELLER PROBES OBSTRUCTION”.
CAN’T STOP, WON’T STOP -- “Manafort still doing international work,” by Ken Vogel: “Paul Manafort is at the center of an FBI investigation into ties between President Donald Trump’s team and the Russians, but that hasn’t stopped him from doing business with international figures and companies, partly by claiming continued access to Trump, according to people familiar with his dealings.
“Manafort in recent weeks has either consulted or worked with a Chinese construction billionaire looking to expand his business overseas and a telecommunications firm interested in regulatory approval from governments in Asia and the Middle East, as well as an investment fund claiming links to the Chinese government, according to documents and interviews.
“Manafort quietly consulted on a proposal under which the Chinese fund — the China Development Fund — would invest $30 billion or more in the Puerto Rican government's bond debt and possibly the island's critical infrastructure, according to documents and interviews with four people familiar with the negotiations, including a Manafort business partner.
“One of the people, a lawyer involved in the discussions, said Manafort indicated that he could convince the Trump administration to support any resulting deal, because he’s remained in contact with Trump’s team, and that he played a role in helping to soften Trump's tough campaign rhetoric on China. ‘He’s going around telling people that he’s still talking to the president and -- even more than that -- that he is helping to shape Trump’s foreign policy,’ said the lawyer involved in the discussions.” http://politi.co/2rjtsDO
TARA PALMERI AND KEN VOGEL: “Trump huddled with donors on day of Comey testimony”: “On the same day last week that fired FBI Director James Comey delivered his damaging Senate testimony, President Donald Trump’s team summoned about a dozen top donors to the White House to rally support for Trump’s agenda. The donors -- including Ken Griffin, Doug DeVos, Tom Hicks, Jr., Bekah Mercer, Todd Ricketts, Tom Saunders, Paul Singer and Dick Uihlein -- gathered in the Roosevelt Room on June 8 for a briefing from Trump’s legislative director Marc Short, according to a senior administration official and other people familiar with the event.
“These people said that Trump himself stopped by the briefing to greet the donors, while Vice President Mike Pence, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway also spent time at the event. … A White House spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment on the donor briefing. But a senior administration official said that topics covered during the briefing included healthcare, tax reform, the confirmation of Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch, pending judicial nominations, the Paris accord and the Saudi arms sale. ‘[It was a] 'here's what we see as the legislative calendar and how you can be helpful' type of meeting,’ the official said.” http://politi.co/2rtB8HL
COMING ATTRACTIONS -- “Jeh Johnson to testify publicly in House Russia probe,” by Austin Wright: “Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is set to testify publicly next Wednesday before the House Intelligence Committee as part of its investigation into Russia’s election meddling, according to a congressional source. Johnson appeared earlier this week before the Senate Intelligence Committee, but the session was closed.” http://politi.co/2sCSeCE
IMPORTANT READ -- MEGYN KELLY SPEAKS -- NYT'S JIM RUTENBERG: "Megyn Kelly, Alex Jones and a Fine Line Between News and Promotion": "Where’s the line between covering a scoundrel as a news figure and giving him a promotional platform? The question has consumed Megyn Kelly this week, after she showed a trailer Sunday night of her coming feature on NBC about Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist who has questioned whether the Sandy Hook school massacre truly happened and asserted that Sept. 11 was an inside job....
"'What we do as journalists is we shine a light on those with power, those with influence, those who have become culturally relevant,' she said. 'Of course, it’s upsetting to know that doing that causes any upset to the Newtown families, many of whom I know well. But I have to do my job.'... 'As journalists, we don’t get to interview only the good guys — that’s not journalism,' ... 'It’s going to be very difficult for us to keep an eye on the more controversial figures of our time if we never talk to them.'" https://nyti.ms/2tmhgmj
THE JUICE …
-- HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. PRESIDENT: Trump celebrated his 71st birthday with dinner at the White House before going to visit Scalise in the hospital, per a pool report. Eric, Donald Jr., Ivanka and Jared Kushner, their kids and Tiffany were all there.
-- ISAAC DOVERE is reporting that Lambda Legal is opening up a D.C. office and plans to raise an additional $25 million over the next for years in an effort to ratchet up the fight against the Trump administration. Sharon McGowan, who was until January a top attorney in the Justice Department’s civil rights division under President Barack Obama, is running the office. http://politi.co/2sdDcRd
-- SPOTTED: Chris Ruddy, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) having an animated conversation in the lobby of Trump Hotel on Tuesday night.
-- SENATE LEADERSHIP FUND reported dropping $443,104 to boost Sen. Luther Strange’s (R-Ala.) candidacy. … The CHAMBER OF COMMERCE reported $153,491 in spending on behalf of Karen Handel in Georgia.
THE ALLEGED SHOOTER -- “James Hodgkinson’s long descent into rage: ‘Nobody really knew anything about him,’” by Lorraine Woellert, Josh Meyer and Alan Greenblatt: “James T. Hodgkinson lived a seemingly comfortable existence back home. He had a wife, friends and a pool where he hosted parties. How and why his life ended on a blood-soaked field halfway across the nation remains largely a mystery to investigators trying to piece together his life. Anger, plain and simple, seemed to be one driver. A man prone to aggressive outbursts, Hodgkinson had grown increasingly angry at the political order in recent years, lashing out online against President Donald Trump and other Republicans. ...
“Hodgkinson was no stranger to law enforcement. He had a lengthy arrest record and seemed prone to violent fits. Most recently, he had been warned about shooting a high-powered gun in the vicinity of his neighbors’ houses. ... In April 2006, he was arrested on firearms and battery charges after he allegedly punched his girlfriend in the face and pulled a 12-gauge shotgun on a witness, Joel Fernandez, who had attempted to intervene.” http://politi.co/2s4g6Ot
THE BIG PICTURE -- “How an Annual Ballgame Has Kept Congress Civil,” by Ben Strauss for Politico Magazine: “What might seem like just a bunch of middle-aged men reliving their high school glory, has become in recent years a meaningful tribute to the painfully nostalgic notion of old-fashioned bipartisanship in an increasingly divided nation. And so while one baseball team -- this one made up of Republican Congressmen and Senators -- cowered behind fences and trees to save their lives, their ostensible opponents -- a group of Democratic lawmakers -- gathered in a dugout 10 miles away in Northeast Washington. They stood arm in arm, and prayed for their colleagues.” http://politi.co/2sviQpp
-- “Obama reaches out to Sen. Flake after shooting,” by Elana Schor: “Former President Barack Obama reached out to Sen. Jeff Flake Wednesday morning in the wake of the shooting at the GOP’s congressional baseball game practice to extend his ‘best wishes and prayers’ for the victims, the Arizona Republican said.” http://politi.co/2t4QeQM
GARRETT GRAFF in POLITICO Magazine, “How Congress Failed to Plan for Doomsday: What would happen if some crazed gunman or terrorist massacred Congress? We don’t really know—and that’s bad news for our democracy”: “One idea floated was that each member of Congress should designate his or her own list of successors in case of incapacitation—with those successors serving until either the next regular election or the member regained the ability to hold office. Several states, including Delaware and Texas, had passed similar bills during the 1950s and 1960s at the height of the Cold War to reconstitute their state legislatures following a nuclear attack. Two former House speakers, Thomas Foley and Newt Gingrich, endorsed that ‘expeditious path’ to solving the congressional continuity issue and preserving the House’s directly elected ‘legitimacy.’” http://politi.co/2rjrgfy
FOR YOUR RADAR -- “Turkish Guards Will Be Charged in Embassy Protest, Officials Say,” by NYT’s Nick Fandos: “Law enforcement officials plan to announce charges Thursday against a dozen members of the Turkish president’s security detail for their involvement in a brutal attack on protesters outside the Turkish ambassador’s residence here last month, two American officials said on Wednesday. ...

NOT THE ONION -- “Rodman gives Kim the gift of Trump: ‘The Art of the Deal,’” by AP’s Eric Talmadge in Pyongyang: “Dennis Rodman has delivered a message from President Donald Trump to North Korea -- sort of. On Thursday, the former NBA player gave the country’s sports minister a copy of Trump’s book ‘The Art of the Deal,’ a present intended for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. It wasn’t signed by Trump, who was Rodman’s boss for two seasons of the ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ reality TV show. Rodman has said his visit has nothing to do with the White House.” http://apne.ws/2rz07EJ
MEDIAWATCH -- GABE SHERMAN in NYMag, “Fox News Is Dropping Its ‘Fair & Balanced’ Slogan”: “As Fox News moves further into the post–Roger Ailes era, the network is shedding one of its most iconic elements. According to network executives, Fox News has abandoned the marketing slogan ‘Fair & Balanced.’ ... [One] executive explained that the tagline was ‘too closely associated with Roger.’ Fox executives have been instructed by management to market the network by its other tagline: ‘Most Watched. Most Trusted.’ It is hard to overstate the significance of what shedding ‘Fair & Balanced’ means for Fox News. (It would be like the New York Times giving up ‘All the News That’s Fit to Print.’) Ailes invented the slogan when he launched the network in 1996, and over the years it became a quasi-religious doctrine among Fox’s anchors and viewers. ... In the annals of modern advertising, ‘Fair & Balanced’ will be considered a classic.” http://nym.ag/2sdxEWZ

2016.07.23 19:44 Blee10 Former WWE writer John Piermarini gives a rundown of Money in the Bank 2010 and it's booking decisions

It's a long read but I find it very interesting, especially the part about wanting The Usos to be different. Unfortunately he had to take down the article itself from his site but I was lucky to find the article in the comments of the old Reddit thread it's from.
Source
John Piermarini worked as a writer for the WWE from early 2009 - late 2010. During John's time on the creative team he worked on the RAW writing team. Since leaving WWE John has created wrestlingrecall.com and has given a behind the curtain feel to his articles that range from television recaps to the inner working of WWE storylines. Check out wrestlingrecall.com for daily insight in the current and past WWE product. You can also follow him on Twitter at @JohnAsHimself for more of his opinions.
What is Story Recall? Each week I will write a column recalling either an episode of RAW, Smackdown, ECW, NXT, a Pay-Per-View or storyline while giving running commentary and a never before seen behind the scene account of the event or storyline. Did the show or story play out the way it was originally planned? It’s all revealed here.
Money in the Bank - July 18, 2010
I will go on record and say that this is ONE themed Pay-Per-View that I actually think works. As much as I enjoy Hell in a Cell matches or TLC matches I prefer them as blow off stipulations to stories as opposed to a stipulation to a match simply because that is the theme of the PPV that month.
Segment One: Big Show vs. Kane vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Christian vs. Matt Hardy vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Cody Rhodes – Smackdown Money in the Bank Ladder Match
• We start off the show with the three-man booth. Jerry Lawler is not a big fan of Matt Striker and it shows at certain times during these three man booths.
• Kofi Kingston was originally set to defend his Intercontinental Title at the PPV against Cody Rhodes but both were added to the match so that it had the biggest star power possible from Smackdown. If my memory serves me right the two Superstars they replaced were Luke Gallows and… hmm well the other escapes me at the moment.
• As much as it seems Christian turns into the fan favorite choice to win Money in the Bank Match each year it’s not going to happen. Christian is seen as a good hand that can help some of the younger talent and does not have a lot of support from higher ups to be a Main Event guy. Edge vs. Christian as a Main Event program has been pitched to death and rejected every time.
• Cody Rhodes was actually a heavy favorite amongst the Smackdown writers to win the briefcase.
• Before Christian was injured a story was being developed to turn Christian heel and work a program with Matt Hardy. The seeds were being dropped on Smackdown at the time Christian was injured.
• Drew McIntyre. Walking into the arena that day Drew McIntyre was set to win the Money in the Bank briefcase. But Drew wasn’t the Superstar who was originally set to win. That was Kane, but was changed later after Kevin Dunn agreed with my philosophy that it would benefit a younger guy to carry that briefcase for a while. So it was set one week before the Pay-Per-View, Drew was to win Money in the Bank. While in the production meeting hours before the show a case was made to have Kane win the briefcase and cash in that night. The thought process? Sheamus was retaining the WWE Title; Miz was winning the RAW Money in the Bank (more on this later) and certain people felt like the average fan would have the feeling too many heels won. Keep in mind Kane would turn heel by defeating one of the most popular WWE Superstars in WWE by cashing in. None the less, the feeling was that this was the first ever Money in the Bank PPV and something needed to happen to brand this PPV as “anything can happen.” I gave the argument that the current storyline had Kane wanting to capture the holy grail for his brother and by doing so tonight took away any future story you had with Kane trying to take it off a someone who may have “took out” Undertaker. I added Kane should challenge Mysterio at Summerslam and go over there.
• Michael Cole, “For the first time Kane enters into the Money in the Ladder Match arena.”
• I pitched Drew McIntyre a story that would kick off after Money in the Bank in which he would be the Superstar to have taken out Undertaker… with some help. I will write a column on this in a future “Story Recall: Who Took Out the Undertaker?”
• Big Show breaking the ladder with his foot and chopping another step off was a great spot for Big Show and needs to be done more often to help establish Big Show as a GIANT.
• I will get into this more during the RAW Money in the Bank Ladder Match but I was in the minority, let me take that back, I was the only one opposed to the original Money in the Bank winners during our creative team meetings. Others may have agreed with me but no one spoke up.
• Michael Hayes, Pat Patterson and Jamie Noble did an amazing job putting this match together!
• Cody Rhodes needs his own iPhone app: “How to be Dashing” giving tips, motivating sound bites by Cody and include a virtual mirror. I will enjoy Cody Rhodes success as I was told multiple times when writing Cody Rhodes promos, that I just need to say what I would say because I was “Dashing” Cody Rhodes. I don’t think it was meant as a compliment but I made it one!
• Kofi Kingston’s Boom Drop off the top of the ladder will live forever!
• At one point Kane vs. Big Show for the World Heavyweight Title was considered for WrestleMania 27.
• The giant ladder was a legitimate giant pain. It was hard to get in the ring and had to be rehearsed before the show to ensure Big Show wouldn’t cut the ring apron when bringing it in.
• Mike Rotunda, the producer of the RAW Money in the Bank Ladder Match was upset that producers utilized the mini ladder in this match as he had a spot for it in the RAW match.
• Kofi Kingston had a star making performance in this match, and for the second time in his career it was not capitalized on.
• Big Show being buried in a pile of ladders was great!
• I am watching this for the very first time in its entirety and Dolph Ziggler narrowly escaped injury when Kane threw him over the top rope and Dolph got his ankle stuck in the ropes. Wow.
• I know Kane winning was unexpected but Kane didn’t need to win the briefcase. Kane is bigger than the briefcase and when you have opportunities like this to “make someone” by simply having them win a match (Money in the Bank, Royal Rumble, etc) I think you need to capitalize on it. It’s tough getting guys over these days and these are free passes that need to be utilized.
• Who were you hoping would win the Smackdown Money in the Bank briefcase? Let everyone know in the comments section.
Sheamus Backstage Interview:
• The "great white shark” line is a perfect example of trying to appease Vince McMahon who enjoys animal kingdom references. We have all been guilty of it.
Segment Two: Eve vs. Divas Champion Alicia Fox – Divas Championship Match
• It’s small, but I HAAAATE when the Divas do their pose at the top of the ramp. Ok wait maybe I don’t but I hate when there is more than one girl on stage and they both do it. LayCool’s routine doesn’t count.
• I would have enjoyed a lengthy Title reign by Eve as Divas Champion because I think Eve could have brought a lot of legitimacy to the division because of her Jiu-Jitsu background. Unfortunately Eve lost the Title because we wanted to brand Fatal Four Way by having fans feel the Title is at jeopardy in a Fatal Four Way Match. I believe we proved that by having every single Title change hands in a Fatal Four Way Match that night.
• Eve looks like a super hero. Its rare you can find a Diva that can seem larger than life and WWE has that in Eve but fails to capitalize on that. I enjoyed sitting with Eve and hearing her ideas for stories. I wish more of them were used.
Segment Three: Hart Dynasty (w/ Natalya) vs. The Usos (w/ Tamina)
• Usos fell victim to bad timing. Usos seemed to be on a roll when we debuted them. I was proud of the promo The Usos and I wrote for their debut. Unfortunately two things happened. Nexus debuted shortly after and Vince didn’t understand the hip-hop culture thus didn’t get the appeal of the Usos. I think he was wrong. My wife doesn’t watch wrestling, but she found the Usos entertaining. That should say something.
• I’d like to see the Usos get a little personality. There is nothing wrong with adding a little “Rikishi” to their characters.
• When the Usos debuted they almost became babyfaces. The idea was to debut Usos as heels but slowly show Hart Dynasty with heelish tendencies slowly swapping what team played what role. The idea was scrapped shortly after.
• The original idea behind the Usos was to present them as the opposite of what you would expect out of a Samoan Superstar. Educated, Intelligent and actual wear boots. Usos would essentially have been the Russell Simmons of the WWE. That preppy hip-hop style. I think the characters had some real legs.
• One thing I don’t get, and it’s still used with Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov is why the smaller wrestlers are used for the hot tag? I always felt like the smaller guy on the team should be the one working majority of the match and letting the heels dominant finally making the hot tag to the much bigger much fresher partner. I could be in the minority with that though.
• There was a quick conversation about having Usos go over and win the Tag Team Titles here. When writing the rough draft of the show, I actually pitched having Usos go over. The talks went nowhere and Hart Dynasty retained.
Segment Four: World Champion Rey Mysterio vs. Jack Swagger – World Championship Match
• It was made very clear that while Rey Mysterio was Champion he was not to be referred to as the World HEAVYWEIGHT Champion. Simply just the World Champion.
• One request I had and asked of Brian Gewirtz was to let me take over the Jack Swagger character as I felt I could make him a Main Event character. So while he spent a lot of time on RAW losing to guys like Santino Marella and Primo I wanted to present Swagger as an entertaining heel who you could make fun of but you knew when he was in the ring he was legitimate.
• One thing I felt proud of when I started working with Swagger was hearing Vince McMahon over head set saying we were watching Swagger become a star before our eyes during one of my Swagger promos. I can only take so much credit though because Swagger really made this character his own. Once Swagger won the World Title and was on his way I wanted to do the same with Ted Dibiase. It’s really sad what they having DiBiase doing now.
• Fun Fact: My original pitch for Jack Swagger as World Heavyweight Champion was to have a series of matches with Undertaker beginning at Summerslam and have Swagger defeat Undertaker clean twice in a row. Undertaker can make someone a star and I think WWE is missing out on that.
• WWE really missed out on not capitalizing on the All American American, playing the heel none to less vs. the Mexican Hero. There was so much we could have done. This was one of the many issues why I left. The fact that we don’t make the most with our stories and create the most compelling and entertaining stories possible.
• I don’t think the whole “Eddie Guerrero boot” trick came off as well as they hoped. When you have to convince your audience that it happened it doesn’t work.
• Kane coming out and attacking Swagger was a brilliant swerve because no one could guess what was coming next As much as I respect Kane and enjoyed working with him I still feel like this was not the best thing to do with the Money in the Bank briefcase. Kane really turned his career around and added new life into the character as Champion but he didn’t need the briefcase to do it.
Edge – Jericho Backstage:
• Do I think Chris Jericho is returning at the Royal Rumble? Next week I will post my Royal Rumble predictions and you can see if I think Jericho returns.
Segment Five: WWE Women’s Champion Layla (w/ Michelle McCool) vs. Kelly Kelly (w/ Tiffany) – WWE Women’s Championship Match
• Fun Fact #2: Vince McMahon appointed me the exclusive writer for LayCool. Not because she got that special privilege but because we asked for it. Let me take this time to say Michelle McCool gets zero favors because she is married to Undertaker. Michelle McCool accomplished everything she got because she was the best. If you need to blame someone you need to blame me because I was the one who would push hard for anything Michelle got on TV. Michelle could wrestle and Michelle could talk, a lot of MALE Superstars can’t do that and Michelle would have been successful with or without Undertaker. There were a lot of people who wanted to see Michelle fail and she fought that the entire time I was there. There were a ton of entertaining ideas we had for LayCool and other Divas on the roster that never saw the light of day.
• Kelly Kelly can help bring a lot of viewers to WWE. She needs to be presented in a way to accomplish that. Gina Carano brought a ton of fans to female MMA and Kelly Kelly can do the same. It’s a shame they don’t focus more on her.
Segment Six: Randy Orton vs. John Morrison vs. Evan Bourne vs. Mark Henry vs. Edge vs. Chris Jericho vs. United States Champion The Miz vs. Ted DiBiase – RAW Money in the Bank Ladder Match
• Randy Orton was originally set to win the Money in the Bank briefcase. I spent many creative team meetings trying to change Brian Gewirtz mind and give the briefcase to Miz.
• I’ve said my piece on giving the briefcase to an unestablished Superstar but I also felt like the original plan for the briefcase was completely absurd. Orton was to win the briefcase and cash it in the following night on RAW losing to Sheamus thanks to interference by NEXUS. The big problem, was Orton wasn’t even set to have a story with NEXUS after that so essentially we were wasting what the briefcase does for someone.
• I told everyone who would listen. We won’t see another Rock anytime soon but Miz will come the closest. I really believed Miz has what it takes to be a huge star. For a while I was laughed at for that, and some may still laugh now but Miz is slowly proving me right.
• Fun Fact #3: I was hired based on a writing sample involving Ted Dibiase winning Money in the Bank at WrestleMania 25 and cashing it in on Randy Orton later that night. The story involved DiBiase never forgetting Orton punting him in the skull. If I can find that story I will post it in a future article.
• Back to Orton winning the briefcase… So I tried my hardest in creative team meetings to get Miz over but it just was going nowhere. Finally a week before the PPV the subject was brought up that there was a pitch to have Miz go over and surprisingly Kevin Dunn agreed and when Kevin Dunn likes something so does Vince so my fight wasn’t in vein and now Miz is your current WWE Champion. I am sure some of you hate me for it. You're welcome!
• Maryse climbing the ladder and DiBiase running up the ladder due to her distraction was a very entertaining spot.
• The things Morrison is capable of doing is unreal. Why he has not ascended to the top of the WWE ranks is beyond me. I’d like to think I had a hand in kick starting his current push before I left FINALLY incorporating his parkour style into his character and getting him more involved in the show. I hope Morrison does the most with his opportunity.
• There comes a point when people will realize Mark Henry’s role and it will soon become ineffective, if it hasn’t already.
• Mark Henry’s strength is UNREAL and has a place in the WWE and can really be utilized it’s just not in the way they are doing it.
• Once again great job by Mike Rotunda and Dave Finlay putting this match together.
• The RKO on Morrison into the Evan Bourne splash on Orton was awesome.
• The reaction Orton got when climbing the ladder only makes Miz winning that much more effective.
• What are your thoughts on Miz winning the RAW Money in the Bank briefcase? Leave your comments.
• Vince absolutely hated the promo I wrote for Miz after winning Money in the Bank. I stuck to my guns and told Vince it would work and felt confident about it because Miz felt confident about it. Vince reluctantly agreed to keep the promo as is and after Miz cut his promo he looked at me and gave me a thumbs up. I felt like Miz needed to give a promo 6 years in the making and felt this one was it. Miz executed this promo PERFECTLY. I couldn’t find a video of it anywhere otherwise I would put it up for you (anyone have it?).
• I am extremely proud of Miz and how he proved everyone wrong, including myself, and I am glad I could play a small hand it helping he do that.
• I had a story mapped out all the way to WrestleMania for Miz that I will post on the website as we get closer to WrestleMania.
Segment Seven: John Cena vs. WWE Champion Sheamus – WWE Championship Match
• There is a lot to talk about when it comes to the NEXUS story, which I will get to at a later time. I do not want to reveal any future plans.
• During the John Cena – Sheamus - NEXUS package that aired before the match they showed Cena and Sheamus holding the ring with steel chairs. I made it pretty clear in the production meeting that I was opposed to them working as a unit so close to their Steel Cage Match. Vince liked the visual of the both of them running off NEXUS and I suggested doing that but having Sheamus then clock Cena with the chair helping to build some anticipation for this match. Instead I felt like we had two allies going to war against each other with the enemy not even involved in the match.
• WWE needs a new cage. At one point we had one being made and I believe it got too expensive. The cage doesn’t fit the rest of the high production value of the WWE. TNA’s cage is cooler than WWE’s. Sheamus winning the WWE Title is a whole other column to itself. Interesting story there.
• There was a feeling that Sheamus wasn’t getting over as a heel as much as he should have. I would argue that the reason behind that was that he never beat anyone. When he won the WWE Title it was promoted as a fluke, even during this match commentators were saying it was a fluke. At Fatal Four Way Sheamus slithered into the ring and pinned John Cena who was attacked by NEXUS. So essentially Sheamus never beat Cena convincingly and probably was not viewed by the audiences an actual threat to the top babyfaces.
• I think Sheamus needed to beat Triple H at WrestleMania and take Triple H out there. Really sends a message that you can destroy an icon at WrestleMania then take him out just because you wanted to. That’s making an impact and that is something that sticks in the minds of the fans.
• Michael Tarver is a badass. He looks the part, which is hard to find these days.
• Very good finish to the match.
