"Afternoon, one and all. As the newest member of the CSWA front office, I'm pleased to bring to you CSWA ON TIME, the newest concept on tap for the new CSWA season."

"The goal of this piece of television is to shine a light on the house show tours that the CSWA has become famous for - matches you would never see in the 'real world' - featuring some of the most famous athletes the world has ever known."

"It's a simple concept. Five matches, four segments. You want a match on this card? You tell me. You want to cut an interview You tell me. If this week's card is full, you go next week. Simple as that."

"You have an angle you want to get over? You work out the details yourself. I don't have the time in my life to figure out what a bunch of overly- aggressive chuckleheads want to do with their evening."

"Oh, and if anyone wants to get married on my show, I've got a thousand dollars, cash, for anyone who beats both you and your betrothed to death with a snow shovel."

So what the heck does this all mean?

In a nutshell, OnTime is now a complete recap show, designed to keep everyone RPing while the "real" cards are in production. Since I'm keeping the number of matches at five and the number of segments at four, no exceptions, there will be no problems with keeping this a weekly card.

So what does that mean? It means if there are more than five requested matches for a week, one of them will get bumped to the NEXT week. Preference will be given to anything with an important angle attached to it.

Of course, if there's an important angle attached to it I would ask that you write the match so as to get it over exactly as you like. Since everything but the main event is going to be short form, it should be easy to do.

As far as segments go, it's a first come, first serve basis.

Occasionally, I'll announce a match or two for a specific show, but I'll do my best to be good about having a decent flow of people going as they come up.

The basic flow will be like this - RPing ends on Friday night, the card will be up Saturday night, and the new card lineup will be announced the following Monday.

Because of the nature of the show, there will never be a specific location announced - it will be like the old WCW Worldwide (Back me up on this if I'm wrong) show where they're in a studio and show the matches from the past week. THe point of this card is what OnTime was supposed to be from the beginning - to keep things going on a regular basis.

If I missed something, Merritt will most likely reply to it and call me evil. Well, duh.

On Time

I request one of the segments, so I can establish the return of Aelieas.

I'd like a segment in the form of a "after the cameras went off at Battle of the Belts" spot....if that's possible...

I'm going to intersperse a couple of comments here, so bear with me:

I think the new format's going to keep things running smoothly. Just be aware that it means you're going to have to think your angles out a little more carefully. As I've stressed in the past, ON TIME angles should be less 'time sensitive.' In other words, they shouldn't be *must have* angles, or involve multiple parts, etc. etc. They should be smaller parts of a larger strategy.

Of course, if there's an important angle attached to it I would ask that you write the match so as to get it over exactly as you like. Since everything but the main event is going to be short form, it should be easy to do.

There's your key, guys. There have always been minor complaints about 'character development' in matches. Not every matchwriter can know the ins-and-outs of your character, and it takes me a *long* time to edit things if I have to look for every quirk. This is your chance to work with other guys and set things up. If you offer to write a match (short-form, joined-in-progress, or long-form), then great. However, if Pete *asks* you to write a match, then I expect you to do. If you have a problem writing a match with your own guys, then trade off with someone else.

As far as segments go, it's a first come, first serve basis.

Keep in mind that segments may get bumped if I request certain things, etc. Pete will do his best to deal with my whims. ;)

The basic flow will be like this - RPing ends on Friday night, the card will be up Saturday night, and the new card lineup will be announced the following Monday.

Pete: you should have access to update this on the RPC Calendar. I'm going to try and be better about using it so that its accurate.

Because of the nature of the show, there will never be a specific location announced - it will be like the old WCW Worldwide (Back me up on this if I'm wrong) show where they're in a studio and show the matches from the past week. THe point of this card is what OnTime was supposed to be from the beginning - to keep things going on a regular basis.

To fill in some of the blanks: commentator John Simons will be hosting this recap show. He may hit the highlights of a major angle or the last show, etc., and then will push the results of these house show matches. This is an attempt to do something that the WWE has failed at: pushing house shows using TV.

Pete will probably fill in the details as far as location for matches. Keep in mind that they'll be in the same vicinity as the upcoming (or previous) PRIMETIME or SHOWTIME. So, for example, the next PT is in Anaheim, CA, so the matches for OT will be in that area.

If I missed something, Merritt will most likely reply to it and call me evil. Well, duh.

The success of this depends on you guys. You have to keep the roleplay moving: if you're scheduled for a card and know you're not going to have time that week, then let Pete know ASAP so he can make a change, or be ready to take the loss. The same goes for writing matches/segments: if you sign up (or are signed up), then you're expected to get something in, or make arrangements to trade off and have someone do it for you.

ON TIME is built to move the action along. We've let it get too long in the past, making it another PRIMETIME. That's not the intent.

Just so you're aware: PRIMETIME will also condense a little bit. Some may have only the Main Event in 'long form,' with others in joined-in-progress, short-form, etc. I'll continue to ask for help from matchwriters, as well as from you guys for segments.

Anyway, I think that's about it for now. Have fun!

"Afternoon, one and all. As the newest member of the CSWA front office, I'm pleased to bring to you CSWA ON TIME, the newest concept on tap for the new CSWA season."



(The vision begins to fast forward)

(It stops)

"Oh, and if anyone wants to get married on my show, I've got a thousand dollars, cash, for anyone who beats both you and your betrothed to death with a snow shovel."

(The scene faded out, replaced with the following text:)



(OK, it's not really the following text, it's Nathan Cross with a look of serious anger on his face. He's mad... real mad... so mad, that if you didn't know better you'd think... 'dang, this guys... mad'. Oh, and he's in front of the CSWA logo, just in case you were interested.)

NC: I couldn't help but notice the latest wonderful front office guy, the men who pay my bills... the men who let me perform for the Crossovers... the men who... DON'T KNOW THEIR PLACE. Now, Petey Ru, its'arite that you play little power games, its'arite that you make some matches for On Time.

But you've went (melodramatic pause) TOO FARRRRRR. Listen to yourself -

(Nathan holds up the remote control and you hear the Voice of Russo)

"If anyone wants to get married on my show (rewind) my show (rewind) my show."

(Nathan looks perplexed)

Your show? When you were hired, did no one tell you the simple fact that On Time is MY SHOW. You want to see Nathan Cross - turn on On Time. You want to be entertained - turn on On Time. You want to see Nathan make some schmuck a superstar for 10 minutes in his 10 year career - turn on On Time.

So Petey, just understand your place. You can do what you want BEHIND the camera, but in front of it - don't bore my Crossovers with your attempt at on screen power.

Now, with that bit of biz outta the way, let's move on to more important things.... Battle of the Belts. Did anyone notice something?

Did anyone notice that putting Nathan Cross in one match wouldn't be enough? The Crossovers demanded more, and they got more. The CSWA needed ratings, buyrates, and the only way to do it would be to get the Crossovers excited. Can you do that with Mark Windham? Only if he's defending that belt against everyone's favorite Nathan, and he's not 'storm'ing out like some Lehew or Sampson. They needed ratings, and we delivered.

So after a successful run at Bob's house, what's next?

They're gonna make the Crossovers wait... they're gonna make them hold off to see their hero, their superstar, their icon in the making. They're going to make them sit through Jean Rub-on and Ryp FanWinkile and other undercard guys like Kevin Powers and Guns. And if THAT's not bad enough, they're going to make them sit through an Aelias Feirte interview. GOD in HEAVEN... (Jim Carrey worthy melodrama) NOOOOOOOO!

But take heart, my Crossovers (still melodramatic, though not as bad)... just as you are about to turn the channel, just as you are about to give up on life - I will be there... and I will be there as...

(Oh Man, the melodrama is icky)

THE MAAAAAAIIIN EVEEEEEENT!

(You can almost hear canned cheers, though none exist except in the mind of Nathan)

That's right girls, boys, and children of all ages, we are in the center ring to face the man of muffins - Mr. Kin Hiroshi for the GREEENSBORO TITLLLLLLLLE.

When I was a little boy, just outta pullups, my momma said we drove through Greensboro. She told me that one day, we'd own that town... ok, actually she said that one day we'd torch that town, something about her boyfriend mayor going back to his wife. But all of that is unimportant

The point is... I'm going to be a champion. I'm going to hold the belt that Guns wishes he could, Hornet wishes he could. And I will make the Main Event of On Time something that it has never been before... entertaining.

So Crossovers, get ready for the most exciting television since the "Greatest American Hero" got cancelled. And get ready for a new "Greensboro American Hero", because after On Time, we're moving on up... to the Greensboro Champion.

Just a clarification (sort of) for everyone:

I'm speaking for Pete here, but I would imagine he'll touch base with many of you individually. As far as angles go: you should either be writing them up entirely as part of a match/segment, or sending them to Pete for approval so you can do so.
