1) A lot of us were on discord when Evolution was posted, and some of us had read ahead and were waiting for you to catch up to read the ending. What was going through your mind as you read the triple threat match?
2) Did you find it easier to write to win the belt, or write to retain it?
3) Who do you think Pasternak will choose to be your new #1 contender at Uprising?
4) Talk about your favorite rums. This might actually keep Teo quiet for a few minutes.
5) What do you think is the "bigger All-In" tease?

Shaw: When are you going to stop beating me every time we face? I will not accept "never" as an answer.
Sam: Our tag team situation... why the hell did you agree to do this insane shit?
Shaw: Thoughts on the Fight Forever tag team? Did the selection surprise you or did you arrive after Sam and Dandy went to war for 6 months (I cannot recall for sure, but I think you might not have been here in hindsight).
Teo: Stop. Just. No. <3

Thank you guys for the kind words whilst reviewing mine and QDT's match (I snuck into the chat just as you started reading through it). I have a few things I'd like to say; Kidsgrove can you please read this out for me.
It has been an absolute blast writing Nightingale for the last 2 years, from collaborating with The Lost Breed gang - David Sanchez, JC Keeton, Downfall, Mintzel and Claire Hawkins, to the run of amazing feuds I had with Malachi White, my man Sam Kidsgrove, Walter, The Swallowing girls, FPV, Howard Black, Mintzel and Nate, and finally the amazing QDT.
There were so many more feuds I wanted to work: a proper Lissie run, obviously our current World Champ, even Downfall.
After finishing up this awesome run with QDT, my aim was to slowly turn Nightingale face, desperately seeking redemption for his sins (my Havoc RP was the start of this arc, planting those seeds). I'd even made some early plans with Kidsgrove with the two fighting side by side.
Writing a character like Nightingale is tough though; it takes its toll mentally. It also is limiting, as I had come to accept Nightingale as more of a movie villain, always tied up into story over wrestling competition, hence why I often didn't compete on Clash. That World Title draw still haunts me to this day, but I had grown to feel with Nightingale I had gone too far down the rabbit hole to reach that level again. Then I kept thinking about something Teo said months ago when discussing Nightingale's hopes of redemption, saying maybe he will only be redeemed if he died in a heroic fashion.
So basically Nightingale is gone because of Teo lol.
Just joking, it felt write, ending Nightingale's story this way, dying in a heroic fashion. So I wrote that match ending the week of Evo with tears in my eyes.
I'm happy with my decision. I feel bad for the stories I never finished and for those I've let down. But I'm super excited for the road ahead and for my plans moving forward - I'm not going anywhere. Plus this is wrestling - you can never say never to anything, but the Nightingale you know and have all had to endure for 2 years is definitely gone - he's already been archived alongside his psycho wife.
