Our last duo in Division Hollywood consists of Jacob Waring and John Nicolaides.
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.
