Come to think of it I always wondered how blindfold matches are supposed to work.

As the wrestler sporting entertainmenter, I imagine the far fewer bumps is nice.

Besides, it's pure crowd interaction. You MUST get the crowd on (or off) your side, or the whole thing is stupid. -er. It's about playing with disco, I guess, dancing, trying to "find" the opponent.

You guys are quite close actually. Yeah, I'm taking all of two planned bumps in the match. Obviously, I'll sell whatever I get in the heat but this is definitely a match that cannot work on spots. You can't run a rope blind. You can't go to the top rope blind. It makes no sense in kayfabe. So what you have to do is have the crowd support and get them to play along. Hopefully, it all goes according to plan next week.

Got the booking sheet from the booker and he changed the finish so we'll have to go over the new finish tomorrow at practice.

Finally moved into my new house fully. 3 days of moving stuff and I'm sore, even with yoga. I'm glad I'm in a blindfold match.

EDIT: oh and I finally have internet again. Yeah.

Yeah no. Not doing a blindfold scaffold match.

Anyway, I'm down to 2 bumps on the elbow drop so I think that one would have been good if there was someone underneath me. But I could only get that smooth with going off the first and second rope first. When I ttried to repeat it I heard more bumps again. I'd like to do this consistently.

The match ending changed so we tweaked our match. Really all we did was flip two spots around and then have an added bit on the end. Nothing too confusing. I am just a bit worried that the new guy will forget. He is doing what I did when I started. He's writing EVERY nuance down. You're bound to forget one and get lost. Thankfully this is a match type where you can kind of get lost and no one will know it isn't planned since we're all "blind." But I've worked hard to get my notes down to a few sparse lines. I'm not so good on the "just work naturally to get into those spots" but I have the note part down I think.

Getting back into yoga finally. I've been having my calves cord up every day for a week now so I really need to take a long time to stretch them out.

My laptop is doing stupid stuff again. I think the battery finally needs a replacement. It's been on "replace soon" for about 3 years now. Just getting white screens even when I disk utility and PRAM resets and all that. More expenses I don't want to pay. And I need my laptop to grade papers so I hope they don't have to keep this baby overnight long. 930am tomorrow is my appointment.

Well, now I'm going to clean up this house a bit. I have empty boxes I need to trash and a dinner date at 5.

OK, so I now have a new laptop. It was NOT the battery. It was the Logic Board.

What I did was I bought a refurbished model, the same year as mine. I took my SSD out of my old laptop and put in this one so I still have all my files. I hope this lasts me another year or two now. I'm way behind on grading work now so I' going to be quick.

So, the show went mostly well I'd say. Despite the snowstorm, we still had what appeared to be 250+ people. Most of the matches seemed to go over pretty well. My match went very well. I got a nice compliment backstage by the trainer of my trainer so I take that to mean it really was good and I'm not just saying so because I was in it.

So we were a blindfold match triple threat. 2 faces, 1 heel, which right away makes the heel the underdog so the whole normal match psychology just wouldn't work. So, what we decided on doing was we would have the whole match be the heel sneaking out of the ring and lifting his mask up. Then the heel would shove the two faces together and hit moves on each other. But even then, it couldn't be big moves. You can't run the ropes or anything in a blindfold match. If you do, then the crowd will know that you really can see.

So start of the match we do the typical, ships passing in the wind spot. We get a lock up or leg sweep, or something else small, then we scramble away and can't find people. It's the typical blindfold match. The crowd is trying to play along and give directions...which BTW, the crowd is horrible at determining my left from their left so I didn't even need to "mishear" the directions to not find the heel.

The heel in this match is Yuri Gregori or Urie Graygory or however we spelled it. He's a big Russian who everyone accidentally calls Boris. Then Yuri will get on the mic and say, "don't call me Boris," which of course gets the crowd to yell Boris even louder at him. It is such an over gimmick for a heel. I love it.

So, by this point in time, about halfway through the match, Yuri has taken his mask off when the ref isn't looking, outside the ring like 4 times. The two faces have hit each other a few times and the crowd is yelling at us about Boris cheating. So the faces at this point have caught on. So Mozart, the other face, starts a "Boris" chant about 4 minutes into an 8 minute match. Yuri gets upset and yells at the crowd. This is the "aha" moment where both baces realize where the heel is. We rush him and stomp him in the corner till he escapes out the ropes again.

So, now we come up to the 1st of 2 spots. Yeah, we only had 2 planned spots before the show. It's a blindfold match. You can't be complicated. So, Yuri puts his mask up again. He sees where both faces are. he knees me and throws me right into Mozart. Mozart grabs me and DDTs me. Yuri takes another look but this time the ref sees the mask up and goes to argue with Yuri, missing Mozart's pin on me. This is the first time the ref sees the mask up.

From there we went to the blind finger point spot with Mozart as I sell the DDT. As Mozart is doing the "is he in this corner" point, Yuri picks his mask up again and the ref sees it again. Yuri pulls the ref in the way as Mozart finds the correct corner and charges. Ref bump. Ref is out cold. Yuri removes the mask and just starts being a complete dick in the ring. I mean he was prancing around us. He was doing "you can see me" motions right in front of our faces. Great stuff. I'm up now. Yuri big boots Mozart into me. I give Mozart a swinging neckbreaker. Once again, no ref to count. Yuri picks me up and hurls me out of the ring.

Continued next post since I'm running out of space.

So as Yuri is celebrating, the lights go out. On the big screen, "America's Best" Colton Quest pops up. He basically has a 10 second promo that said something like, "hello Boris. If you weren't cheating you wouldn't have noticed that I turned out the lights. But in order to be fair, I'll turn them back on now."

Yuri gets blinded as the lights turn back on. He stumbles backwards, over me (I crawled back in during the 10 second promo). The ref wakes up, I grab a pin, and win in a shocking turn of events. I act shocked, sell the DDT some more, and roll out of the ring to Mozart whose also selling his head. We shake and he raises my hand, which we didn't plan but it just happened. We walked to teh back and the crowd was still telling us how much Yuri was cheating.

So I guess that means the next show will have Yuri vs Colton. Russia vs USA.

All in all the show went well. We had a table that didn't break. *Insert James Hetfield screaming "I am the table" here* And a ladder gave out from under Slim Jim so he almost didn't make the swanton bomb rotation, but he was alive and well at the after-show dinner so all is well that ends well, right Sonic? Sonic? *Pan out to see Station Square is half underwater and millions must have died in this crumbling ruins.*

But no. That was it. Getting the ring and stage back up the ramps in the ice was hilarious to say the least. Let's not have snow next show.

The one thing I was really proud of in the show were my notes. Before I had to remember move by move and write it all down. This was the first show where I could just write brief notes and get it done. Granted, if I fumbled....well I'm blind so it works in kayfabe. But I didn't. My notes were just:

Ships passing
Boris chant
DDT spot
Finger point
Neckbreaker Spot
Finish

That's it. 8 minutes condensed on an index card. The rest was all just on the fly. I somehow bumped into someone, OK, I sweep a leg. Oh he grabbed me, OK well I'm locking up and we spin into the corner till the ref breaks it up. Oh I just got hit on the back; I guess I'll sell and scramble away. We didn't need to go over that stuff. It was just stuff we did between the spots. I want to be at that level consistently.
