Here is a brief report of what happened at that meeting: [B][I]First there were the monthly financial reports, talks about the TV rating and all those things. Those reports indicated that there was no grow in ratings, nor in live attendance. Tommy Cornell, beings surprised thinks the company is getting stale at the moment. He thinks that if they continue like this they won’t gain nor lose ground on SWF. He sees these reports as a very bad sign and says there is need for some changes. TCW’s head booker, Sam Strong had a different view on these reports. He believes that the company has grown to such high level that only really great shows can increase their popularity and that not every show can be that damn good. And in a month like November it is normal that ratings are a bit lower as the TCW A Little South Of Sanity, being only 2 hours long, is mainly used as a build-up PPV for the next two months with bigger PPV’s. Not that this month’s PPV was bad either, but it just doesn’t have that little magic sparkle that other the great PPV’s like Psycho Circus and Malice in Wonderland have. Tommy Cornell, not really pleased by Strong’s comments, replied to that saying that Sam Strong is the one to blame then, after all, he is the head booker and it’s his task to keep people want to watch their shows. He says there needs to be made a change in the product they offer. That they need to follow SWF’s tracks to get to the same level as them. He believes there needs to be more entertaining segments on the show which make people laugh, he doesn’t want people to watch wrestling as a real sport, but as a soap with lots of action in it, not the talking type. He says there need to be more wrestlers with funny gimmicks, more talk segments on their shows and new funny storylines. He believes the time of wrestlers having to look strong is over. This is a new era and the crowd defines the product. If the crowd likes SWF more at the moment then that is the way we should follow. Sam Strong, feeling disrespected by they youngster Cornell, states that if he had to book a comedy show like that he’d rather take his leave. Cornell, snobbish and stubborn as he is, replied with “Like we really need you here”. That was Sam Strong’s boiling point, he stood up, left the building, got in his car and drove away.[/I][/B] At this point we have no clue whether Sam Strong will come back to TCW within today and a couple of weeks, as always, we’ll keep you informed as soon as there is more information available.
