B/R Creature vs. Creature 2.0: Introducing the Black Division
Guten tag, Bleach beasts!
Welcome to the third thrilling installment of the Creature vs. Creature 2.0 slide show series, showcasing the writers and divisions that make up this awesome contest.
I’ve gone to painstaking lengths to make sure that your ride during this contest is as exciting as it can be! As your tour guide, I’m totally committed to bringing you everything I possibly can about this competition. After all, we’re looking to crown “The Greatest Writer of B/R’s Wrestling Section,” a valued title that the winner will carry for one entire year!
Imagine if you had that power to shut everyone else up?
Much like my last two slide shows, I’m posting information that will introduce you to the writers, their divisions, and the topics they are covering. I have to note here that it wouldn’t be worth your time to read if it didn’t come with the standard hijinks and antics that make me so particularly likable and despised at the same time.
Don’t forget, all of you loyal B/R readers must check in routinely for the posts from this competition’s writers. Unlike last week’s episode of RAW, the power here is in YOUR hands to determine the writers that will advance in the tournament towards epic greatness!
Grab your hats as we prepare to smash through this slide show like The Shockmaster through a wall! Up and at them!
"Division Hollywood": The Black Division
The Black Division will be placed under the microscope today for your consumption. There was some tough competition in the previously mentioned Know Your Role Division, but our focus today contains some heavy hitters that pack a punch like The Big Show!
The Black Division differs from the other three divisions in that I wasn’t allowed to rename it. Instead, I found myself accosted by two of the division’s competitors, who had certain demands they wanted to be fulfilled in this slide show.
I usually don’t crack when intimidated, but Joe Burgett must have gotten wind of the situation and was conveniently “unavailable” when I tried to reach out to him for help. “F is for friends who do stuff together,” JOE.
So as it stands, the Black Division has chosen to rename itself, and shall be referred to as Division Hollywood.
The six writers in this division (two of whom are really big bullies!) aspire to take over the wrestling section of B/R to bring some real notoriety and prestige to the site altogether. Altogether, these no nonsense writers have speed, experience, and rock star notoriety that gives their division an imposing status in the competition.
What makes this slide show special outside of the others is that the competitors are currently in the process of posting their pieces, if they haven’t already done so. Their articles should have blindsided you by now, placing me in a difficult situation to explain to you all everything that just happened.
I’m sitting on pins and needles waiting for their posts, mostly because they actually put pins and needles in my chair and told me not to move until every single last post in the division was published.
In the immortal words of Ernest “The Cat” Miller, somebody call my mama. Please call her. Help me (I’m not kidding).
I’ve been told that the writers in this division will continue post their articles on Mondays until they sweep this competition.
Chinmay vs. Sam Masad: "Best WWE Superstar Yet to Hold a Secondary Title"
With less than 100 articles, Chinmay has become a well-respected B/R veteran on the fast track to legendary status. This writer gets respect without even asking for it, and gives more than one could imagine a person could.
Truthfully speaking, this Creature vs. Creature contest may be Chinmay’s last. A peek at his profile will show that that he plans on decreasing the number of articles he’s writing as his time on B/R is drawing to a close. Whether or not this is a Ric Flair “retirement” has yet to be established.
It would be very poetic for Chinmay to walk out with the “Greatest Writer,” but his fellow Division Hollywood writer could derail his train towards destiny.
Chinmay faces Sam Masad, an opinionated B/R “freshman” with a lot to prove as he steps into the competition. A writer with nothing to lose will throw his or her all into every piece, and this is the type of dangerous writer that Chinmay is going up against.
Facts are facts; Sam hasn’t written a piece since April, and that piece is his only pro wrestling piece. Sam literally has to climb some personal hurdles before he can even begin to think about out-writing Chinmay.
But again, this makes Sam a formidable competitor. Imagine the HUGE feather in his cap if he defeats a veteran in the first round with his second pro wrestling article. It would undoubtedly be the biggest upset in the entire competition!
Chinmay and Sam’s pieces are about the best WWE superstar that has yet to hold a secondary title. As of this writing, Chinmay’s piece has already been posted. The odds are definitely piling up against Sam.
Chinmay decided to cover Zack Ryder, which easily grabs the reader’s attention as a fan-favorite subject. In my opinion this was a slick and wise move on Chinmay’s part.
It will be interesting to see Sam’s subject in light of Chinmay’s piece, as it will literally have to fight against a tidal wave of woo woo woo’s and spiked hair supporters. What would be interesting is if Sam crafted a piece that defined a “secondary” title, and went that route.
Did I give away something again?
Iam D Real Deal Yo vs. Nate Scaccia: "Best TNA Match of All Time"
Nate Scaccia brings to the competition an intense level of creativity that should not be taken lightly by the other writers. Most of his work is fantasy booking of WWE events (RAW, pay per views, etc.), and this shows that Nate has a great mind for analyzing things “out of the box.”
Nate does this well, which suggests that he must have a decent understanding of the product in order to flip it and present it in a more appealing way.
His fellow Division Hollywood writer, Iam D Real Deal Yo, is no slouch either.
Simply put, Deal is possibly the most beloved writer in B/R’s wrestling section. Looking at his stats is almost like reading a classic story about a humble beginning to major success.
Under the tutelage of the legendary Mike AKA the Professor, Deal has honed his writing abilities and a style, gaining staunch supporters and friends each and every step of the way. He’s most known for his passion for the WWE and John Cena, as well as his happy-go-lucky personality that has made him an iconic figure among this current B/R generation of writers.
Good intentions are great, but will it be enough for Deal to move on to the next round of the competition? Perhaps not, but it doesn’t look good for Nate as Deal has already published his piece and has a head start on his competitor.
These two will spar on the topic the best TNA match type of all time.
Deal has chosen to write about TNA’s Ultimate X match. It seems that he and Chinmay have been in some sort of collusion as to what to write about.
Nate doesn’t have much more outside of that match to work with regarding TNA. Hell, he and Deal had very little to work with from the beginning. Can you now see the pattern that makes this division a difficult one to be in?
Nate will really have to use his creativity and push himself to the limit with his piece. I would expect this writer to expand his horizons on TNA’s product and think in much larger terms than Deal did. That’d be the only way to usurp Deal’s momentum at this point, in my humble and more right-often-than-not opinion.
Jacob Waring vs. John Nicolaides: "Worst IC Champion of All Time"
John is yet another young and hungry B/R lion itching to become the alpha male of the B/R Wrestling Section pride. He’s so hungry in fact that his piece was published early this morning, late last night. This came well before his competitor’s piece, giving him quite the lead.
From what I witnessed last night, this definitely played in John’s advantage in the competition. He mentally shanked his opponent, something that Jacob mentioned briefly in his piece posted not long ago this afternoon.
So far in the competition, John is the first writer to utilize “mind games” in his respective division. That puts this competition on an entirely different and new level. Way to go, John!
Don’t sleep on Jacob Waring too much, though; as of this writing, Jacob’s article has more props and retweets. He’s gaining ground on John as far as reads are concerned, and was probably able to craft his piece in a completely different way knowing well in advance what his competitor published.
Jacob apparently likes to play games, and he’s a very sore loser.
Nate’s hunger, however, may be his undoing as he’s run ahead of a horror movie loving pro wrestling fan. Jacob’s intense adoration of horror movies gives him the ability to recognize suspense and the art of storytelling.
While John’s early morning piece sent shockwaves through the Waring camp, Jacob sat in wait to build anticipation for his own piece. He bided his time, allowing readers to absorb all that John had placed out for their consumption.
At the right moment Jacob attacked with his own piece, which was met with an influx of readers anticipating his “response.” Let it be said here that these writers in Division Hollywood know how to keep us on the edge of our seats.
Jacob and John were tasked with writing about the worst Intercontinental Champion of all time. John started off with the regrettable two-time reign of Santino Marella, while Jacob dug in the crates to harp on the 27-day reign of John Bradshaw Layfield.
I won’t harp on what they talked about, as you can go check those pieces out yourself. Instead and just for the hell of it, I’ll list some reigns I thought they would consider:
- The reign of Carlito Caribbean Cool, which began on his debut in the company, damaged the prestige of the title when a hyped unknown can defeat the champion on his first night in the company (**ahem** SANTINO).
- The reign of Chris Jericho and Chyna, which I largely forgot about until one of the writers reminded me about it.
- Chyna’s reign as Intercontinental Champion, which was a huge move towards establishing equality among the genders, but a huge step backward because it condoned male-on-female violence. Really, who else was Chyna going to defend that title against? Did I mention she won this title TWICE?
- The week long reign of Johnny Nitro (John Morrison), which should not be confused with the daylong reigns of Edge and Jeff Jarrett.
Joe Burgett, why didn’t you just ask them to write about the most pointless WWE title in the current Era? This belt is now about as pointless as Michael Cole’s heel turn.
Make sure you check out both Jacob and John’s articles and vote accordingly.
Now that I’m through giving you the necessary info about Division Hollywood, I hope they’ll allow me to get up from this chair! Because I have to, here are the writers and their topics once again:
1) Chinmay vs. Sam Masad: "Best WWE Superstar Yet to Hold a Secondary Title"
2) Iam D Real Deal Yo vs. Nate Scaccia: "Best TNA Match Type of All Time"
3) Jacob Waring vs. John Nicolaides: "Worst IC Champ of All Time"
Check in regularly today for the pieces that have yet to be posted.
Also tune in tomorrow for the final slide show highlighting the writers in this competition. I’m expecting something major to occur, but I just might be wrong. I don’t want to Dixie Carter you all into tuning in to greatness that doesn’t happen.
Good luck to the writers in the Black Division, and here’s to hoping that a victory from your camp won't be “Too Sweet” for B/R to handle!
