Get to Know the Members...

Welcome new members!
Hey everyone; it seems the forum has hit a peak for the year in terms of visitors so I'd like to use this time to have us talk a little about ourselves - perhaps welcome the newbies and let them give us a taste of who they are as well.

Topics range from WWE/Wrestling company of your choice to GT. As far as the "how would you book a superstar" question goes, we can also vote on who has the best idea for booking here.

Other various topics will be covered, and I will start it:

How long were you a member of GT for?
GT Career Highlight
Favorite Superstar
Favorite Diva
Most Underrated Superstar
How would you book a current superstar or championship from here until Wrestlemania?
Something Interesting about you?
_____________________________________________


How long were you a member of GT for?
Since 2003 or 2004.
Little known fact: When I started here my username was Matt Hardy V1 - or something to that effect, and I was a troll. I remember I also had the username JIMMY LIGHTNING IV for those of you who recall - I used all CAPS when I made posts and someone on here - might have been FERAL who said, "why are you talking in all caps" and I responded, "BECAUSE IT'S A BOOMING VOICE LIKE GOD" to which a response from another user was, "that's offensive". Again, I was just trolling.

GT Career Highlight
Winning a GameTalk Forum King of the Ring tournament (In 2008 I think?) in Wrestlemania 19 as Goldberg.

Favorite Superstar
For years it's been Kane. When I first started watching it was Kane, The Rock and the Hurricane but that changes each year to include other superstars such as Jeff Hardy, CM Punk and Christian. In the past year or two I've been impressed with Cody Rhodes, Rollins, Ziggler and Daniel Bryan, and I was just starting to finally, FINALLY get on the bandwagon for Barrett when he got injured.

Favorite Diva
CM Punk

Most Underrated Superstar
Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow are not getting the most out of what they can be doing at their potential.
Kane's never really been at his peak since 2003, though 2010 was a good year for him, and 2012 was bearable. I think he needs to have more world titles - 2 or 3 more reigns - even if they last a month each, just trading titles with someone, like Ziggler or Rollins in triple threat matches. It'd be interesting to see Rollins get a world title in a separate way from using the MITB contract, and after winning the title, still having that briefcase.

How would you book a current superstar or championship from here until Wrestlemania?
Booking WWE World Title:
Brock Lesnar Defeats Cena at Summerslam for the titles
He starts a feud with CESARO. Lesnar wins by Count out, DQ or double count out at NOC and whatever the October PPV is. The rivalry culminates at Survivor Series where Cesaro has him beat but the referee was knocked down. Another referee gets in the ring and CESARO hits a german suplex w/ bridge pin but his landing pin sees his shoulders down too, the ref counts to three but it ends in draw. Lesnar is still champion. The next night on RAW Cesaro is awarded the EUROPEAN WORLD title (the same Euro title from Attitude Era) and begins to defend that every RAW and every PPV to show he is a dominant champion.

Meanwhile Lesnar and Kane start to feud to see who the real monster is. At the Royal Rumble 2015, Kane and Lesnar are both down, the match is not yet over when Rollins cashes in and wins the title before the match is even over. This provides Kane and Lesnar more time for the feud to end at Wrestlemania, for revenge on Undertaker's broken record and for being the dominant monster. Later in the evening, Ziggler wins the rumble.

Wrestlemania sees Ziggler defeat Rollins in a 5 star match for the world title, and Ziggler is finally back on track again. He also beats the man who he has been jobbing to over the past month (Rollins). Wrestlemania's all said and done, and we have Ziggler vs Rollins for the world title, Kane vs Lesnar, Cesaro defending his Euro title against Jericho maybe? and Triple H vs Sting...because...why the hell not?


Something Interesting about you
My GT Career has been pretty symmetric to Booker T's career in WWE. Booker T became a KING OF THE RING in 2006 and became King Booker - just a year later he decided to leave to go to TNA. In 2011 he returned to WWE, where he resumed the name Booker T.

I had won a King of the Ring Tournament on GT - I believe it was in Wrestlemania 19 for the GameCube, my char was Goldberg. I started using the moniker King Wondertaker I believe in 2007 or 2008, and then later on, in 2008 or 2009, I had left the forum to try that Inventforum for a few years. I was there until 2011 and returned to GT where I have resumed the name Wondertaker.



FERAL - Perhaps this can be stickied as a welcoming for new members and for others to see what we're about - particularly for the purpose of reading each member's bio.

How long were you a member of GT for?
Since the early 2000's. I used to frequent trading card and the writing forums a bunch then would peak around other forums but never posted too much. I did that under the name cd61943 and then Hitaiga in later years.

GT Career Highlight
It was when I was made mod of the writing forum which allowed myself to help the site grow as I got involved in other forums. Right now my peak is probably getting involved in streaming and getting the game talk back to GT.
Favorite Superstar
Bad News Barrett, Ziggler and The Miz.

Favorite Diva
Natayla
Most Underrated Superstar
It's Barrett. I know he was IC champ when he got his shoulder injury, but I can't help feel like he hasn't been used to his full potential.

How would you book a current superstar or championship from here until Wrestlemania?
If Barrett was healthy, I would have him team up with Sandow. The Enlightenment of Bad News, both are quite intelligent and they could use that to talk down to their opponents. They would participate in various tag team and singles competition to gain momentum, capture the tag team belts and defend them against Goldust and Stardust.

Something Interesting about you?
I was engaged in the time GT was non existent. That was a fun two years, and then she left and Xhin wanted to create this place.

Since around 2005. I was friends with Psy? and -Stroke- I also met -FK- when he was a mere kid.

GT Career Highlight: Winning a GT Tournament held in this forum I suppose.
Favorite Superstar Current:
Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Bad News Barrett. The Miz, Cesaro
Favorite Diva
Paige, AJ Lee

Most Underrated Superstar

DOLPH ZIGGLER

How would you book a current superstar or championship from here until Wrestlemania? I'd Push Ryback right out of the company. I'd try and build up Dolph Ziggler again. The guy has it all, he just needs some wins, and a good sense of direction. He could face Rollins down the line, and get a win. Slowly, climbing the rungs, and, eventually winning the WWE World Heavyweight Title.

How long have you been a GT Member for?
Between 12 and 13 years now, under three different monikers. Originally Trish's Toyboy, becoming -Phoenix Rising- following Trish's retirement & settling currently on #AJChamp since Beth's been gone.

GT Career Highlight
Destroying KHW with my acerbic wit and championing the Diva's division through thick and thin

Favourite Superstar
I have a few here. Mainly Dolph Ziggler, Daniel Bryan, Cesaro and Sami Zayn at the moment

Favourite Diva
Yeah.... I can't answer that! I love ALL Diva's, god knows i've been drumming that into the world since my arrival here. Having said that, for the sake of supplying an answer, I'll throw in Stephanie McMahon (cos it's her that introduced me to this pastime), Trish Stratus, Beth Phoenix & AJ Lee, all of which I've had a forum name for

Most Underrated Superstar
Going against the grain and choosing a male here - Cody Rhodes. This Stardust gimmick has got to go. He has so much potential

How would you book a current superstar or championship from now until Wrestlemania?
Simples - I'd completely thrust the Diva's even more into the forefront than they are now. No more pointless multi-person 2 minute tag matches, and more creative Diva storytelling circa 2001-2004, and with the right people centred around the title - were talking AJ, Naomi, Paige, Emma, Natalya, and maybe Alicia Fox, Layla & Summer Rae once consistent booking for them had been sorted, which wouldn't take me long!

Something interesting about you
Erm...... I love strong, dominant, powerful women, and seeing rage from them really gets my blood pumping lol

FERAL! Should we get this stickied? It's a good introduction and insight on members' bios

How long were you a member of GT for? Christ...I know I was young. I don't remember the exact year but I think I know some of you fucks for ten years now so let's go with that as an estimate.


GT Career Highlight: Getting banned for cutting a promo on Candice and Torrie going ahead of a World Title match because I was so infuriated. I willingly took the one day ban to get my point across. We all lul'd about it.

Favorite Superstar: At the moment...Antonio Cesaro because jesus christ he's just great.

Favorite Diva: AJ Lee.

Most Underrated Superstar: How about Mr. Xavier Woods? I think the guy has a ton of talent and he's been treated worse than Dolph has been on his worst day.

How would you book a current superstar or championship from here until Wrestlemania: Oh jesus christ...you know what'd be a good idea? A booking thread where we pitch rough ideas to go from Summerslam to Wrestlemania. I think that'd be a hell'va idea. I have too many ideas to just focus on one at the moment but I think we should do that to really let things loose and just have fun fantasy booking stuff.

Something Interesting about you? Wrestling isn't my first love in terms of enjoyment actually. It's football. It'll always be football.

How long were you a member of GT for?

I've been a member on and off since 2002.

GT Career Highlight

2010 Moderator of the Year, modding the Most Nostalgic Forum of 2010 - The Wrestling Forum. :)

Favorite Superstar

Currently, I would have to go with Bray Wyatt. His mic work is phenomenal, and his in-ring work is only going to get better.

Favorite Diva

Paige, especially with her recent heel turn.

Most Underrated Superstar

Dolph Ziggler.

How would you book a current superstar or championship from here until WrestleMania?

I'll pick the United States Championship for this one.

Give that title to Rusev. He has uber heat from the crowd with this anti-American/pro-Russian angle. He could hold on to that title until his angle with Swagger is done. Then Swagger could pass it on to another deserving mid-carder, like Bo Dallas, later down the road.

Something interesting about you?

I have been wrestling since 2008 locally in my neck of the woods. Check out www.wawwrestling.com, and look for Andres Reyes. That'd be me. ;)

How long were you a member of GT for?

I stumbled upon the original GT in 2001 (could be earlier but the earliest evidence I've found via archive.org is 2001). Stuck around for maybe 2 years. Came across this place in 2011.

GT Career Highlight

Jobber to the stars

Favorite Superstar

From the Era of Attitude it was Stone Cold and The Rock. Cesaro is my current favorite.

Favorite Diva

Renee Young

Most Underrated Superstar

Heath Slater. He should be filling Santino's spot.

How would you book a current superstar or championship from here until Wrestlemania?

I think two midcard titles are pointless. Have Cesaro (as IC Champ) defeat Sheamus at some point and merge the titles creating a new belt.

Something Interesting about you?

I lived in Greece for 4 months... is that interesting?

Rock21, do you have a facebook?

And yes, that is interesting. I'm of Greek descent and I've visited family there on 3 occasions myself.

How long were you a member of GT for?

Pretty much from the beginning of the original or not far off. 2001? Crazy how long it's been.

GT Career Highlight

GTWF. The good days.

Favorite Superstar

More recently? Probably Ambrose.

Favorite Diva

Paige (Del Rey and MsChif as outsiders). All time? Trish.

Most Underrated Superstar

Cody Rhodes. In terms of underrated by the fans, Cena.

How would you book a current superstar or championship from here until Wrestlemania?

Forget the Raw heel turn. Tease the return of Kong. Have AJ hold on to the title until around Survivor Series. Wins her match on the night. Following night on Raw she's talking about taking care of everybody, who can challenge her etc etc. Kong shows up, destroys her and wins the title. From there she's basically a wrecking ball, destroying every single female for the next few months and looking unstoppable. 5-6 weeks before Mania and it seems there's nobody left to challenge her, cue Paige. Classic little vs. big and eventually at Mania Paige overcomes the odds and defeats Kong for the belt.

Ultimately you could probably replace Paige for AJ. The reality is the above is what should of happened between Kong and Beth Phoenix, it'd of been brilliant.

Something Interesting about you?

I'm a Steelers fan and so is FK, he grew up in love with them as his childhood team and was in tears when they didn't make the playoffs last season. Ain't that right FK?
