Happy 150th post! w00t~!
- Superstar Vince Jacobs is back and he's in LoC. Huge, huge coup for Dan's fed. Once again, this proves that e-fed retirements are almost never permanent, which bodes well for those of us holding out for the return of Gregg Gethard.
- Jeff Bolichowski resigned as MCW fedhead. I'm not surprised by this, but I'm very glad he decided to keep the fed open in different hands rather than close it. In case you don't know, Karl Brown and Josh Ray have taken control. I like that combination a lot. Karl's been around MCW in its previous incarnation, and Josh has a great exuberance and enthusiasm that any fedhead should have.
- Not suprisingly, the number of folks I have so far for the ToC are concentrated from a few feds. Surprisingly, those feds aren't the usual suspects. Well, one of them hails from a fed you could call usual; EPW has sent all three of its current Champions, which is a virtual 100% compliance, given that Jarret's on hiatus and thusly won't be entering Beast (although I'm sure he would if he had the time... Jarret's always been a big supporter of projects like these). But the other three... well, I'm surprised, but it's a pleasant surprise. First up in the queue is PRIME, a fed that's sending four of its eligible superstars (Vangelus Olsig, Danny Ferguson, Kyle Lamen, Karina Wolfenden). To get a turnout such as that from a fed as prestigious as PRIME... I'm flattered. Next up is another PTC fed sending four, FUSE. They're sending Mikael Lundgard, John Covel, Tigera and Damien Cruz. Finally, there's NAPW, who's really responded to this tournament, sending D!, Devastation, Bayman Jakey and Ravager. Now, that's not to say other feds haven't stepped up. The CSWA and AWC have both sent two, as has ACW. And we have a smattering of guys signing up from odd feds too. So right now, I do have the cross-pollenation I wanted. I'm very pleased so far, and hopefully, the RPing and judging will go off like I want them too.
