Hello, mga #KapaFED! Your weekly wrestling oracle here, William Elvin!
It’s just gonna be a quick one today, because as you know, MWF 2: Maki-Wrestling, ‘Wag Matakot is on Sunday, and all kinds of craziness is happening around me at the same time!
Let’s jump straight to the questions for this week, shall we?
Carlo Agoncillo I see u already have a Ninja and Mr Lucha doll will we have dolls of other wrestlers in the future? And what wrestling merch do u enjoy collecting ?
We will definitely produce more merchandise items, especially dolls of other wrestlers. Ninja and Lucha came first as a way to test interest in these kinds of merch, and so far, it’s getting a lot of interest.
I used to have a lot of Stone Cold shirts when I was younger. Unfortunately, 2008’s “Ondoy” took a lot of those away, so now I only have a few. After that, I was never much into buying merch anymore, though I bought all kinds of wrestling DVDs (original or pirated, but not advocating piracy in any form) I could find and afford before the WWE Network came along.
If I had enough money and house space (and as long as my wife won’t be annoyed by them), I will definitely buy more action figures and toy rings.
Kenneth Tongol Thoughts on using guard rails in your shows? Last show I remembered a fan easily jumped the ramp to take a pic with Richards.
Oh thankfully that fan wasn’t violent! She just wanted a selfie.
If we can afford to bring in more metal in venues that what we’re already bringing, sure. However, we trust that you MWF fans are respectful enough to control your excitement and not disrupt our shows. For the unruly fans, we thank the universe we have security/bouncers in our shows.
Crisencio Galvez do you allow trained wrestlers with no compete contract to your promotion?
As far as I know, local wrestlers from other promotions don’t have exclusive contracts yet, so we can cross-promote anytime we think it is beneficial, as long as our promotions’ bounds are respected (and so far, our cross-promotional negotiations are quite well). For those with non-compete contracts (I imagine the WWE or NJPW are the only ones who really have these sorts of contracts, but please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong), they legally can’t work for other promotions other that where they work, so even if we want to have, say, Dolph Ziggler or Finn Balor in our fed, that won’t be possible.
Aaron Lemuel Alvarez What specialty match do you prefer most? And why?
Hey, welcome to the Insider blog! Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think you’re a first-time asker. Thanks for the support!
I’m an old school guy, so old-fashioned, balls-to-the-wall cage matches still appeal to me. Not the escape-type cage matches the WWE produces, but the NWA-style knock-down-drag-out pin and submission ones.
I love it because it has the capacity to feel legitimately brutal without relying on dangerous spots like a ladder match would. When done right, cage matches can give fans the best matches they will ever see (provided that you’re not the type of fan who judges matches based on how dangerous the spots are).
That’s it for today! I look forward to seeing all of you in person on Sunday night!
