  1. Colt does an awesome podcast called Art of Wrestling, you can listen to all the back episodes on Soundcloud iirc. Gets really good guests, he's had Flair, Foley, HBK, Ambrose, Rollins, Neville off the top of my head. He's also Punk's best friend, they were RoH tag champs back in the day. Really glad Colt was there and that I got to meet him, nice to see a non WWE/TNA wrestler included. Edge and RVD were great too, RVD really is exactly how you'd imagine Well technically he was a WWE wrestler - just not for very long. Ha, yeah so he was, I'd completely forgotten that. But he's not primarily famous for that.

  3. Grant Gustin would be the ultimate, but even fitting the clues I'm at least 96% sure it's not him. Not certain if she's done signings before, but if not Taylor Schilling would also be amazing. Pretty sure it's someone from GoT though.
  4. Still subject to WWE approval. Plus he'll be off the list the day before LFCC anyway, 30 day suspension.
  5. Heart says Coster-Waldau cos he was guessed before the Twitter cut off, and has a film out tomorrow. Head says probably Tobin Bell.
  6. It won't be. He's said numerous times he doesn't want to do signing events. He doesn't even have an agent.
  7. A hill is smaller than a mountain. Maria Hill is taller than Tyrion Lannister. Cobie Smulders! I'm a genius.
  8. I think the guest announcement followed by a date for when tickets go on sale (end of the month perhaps to encompass pay day for most people) will allow funds to be secured for purchases. This means those who want to get them can and those who do not will not have the need to "negatively respond" after the hype.I don't see how waiting to put the tickets on sale will stop the negativity? Because when people wait a week to find out who the guest announcement is, only to find they have never heard of them, then that's where they start dropping comments about it being an anti-climax etc. If you just post a guest out of nowhere whilst still giving a heads up when tickets go on sale, then only the people interested in the guest will be commenting. Compare last night's announcement to the likes of Mads etc. (which didn't come with a 'Big announcement in 5 days' type fanfare) and you'll see. Explained it much better than me. Just announce guests without hype. If it's a popular guest have a few days delay on ticket sales so everyone has a chance to see the announcement.
  9. I remember a while ago somone suggesting that, for popular guests, instead of having hype threads, SM just announce the guests and have a delay before tickets go on sale. I think that's a good idea that seems to work elsewhere, and might help quell some of the negative feedback. It won't get rid of it, but it might reduce it if people aren't so amped up with ridiculous expectations when the guests are announced.
  10. Personally, I try never to say anything to or about anyone on the Internet that I wouldn't say to their face. Unfortunately there are lots of people who do become absolute {insert word of choice here} once they have a keyboard to hide behind. They don't have to see the effect they have on the other person so there is no process of empathy. If it's any consolation you're far from the only organiser that has to deal with this. LFCCs were the first events I went to any for a while pretty much the only ones. I'd be the first to say I used to get grumpy about guests from my favourite shows not being there. But at the end of the day that's not within my control. If I want to meet certain guests, then what's within my control is keeping my eye to the con-verse and travelling to wherever those people make appearances. Pointless getting mad at SM when it's not even completly within their control either. I find that way I actually enjoy LFCC more, since if there's stuff that's not my bag, or there aren't lots of guests from my favourite things, eh, that's on the horizon somewhere anyway. I'm just focused on the good stuff. Like Mads signing my Unit One DVD Having said that, I think it's a valid observation from a few years worth of LFCC that some very popular fandoms are never terribly well represented. I can see why those fans get frustrated, even if I don't necessarily agree with them or the way the show it. Of course there are a ton of possible reasons for this, and maybe there's nothing you can do about it. But I do think it is valid as a point of "room for improvement if possible".
  11. Would you be taking Facebook and Twitter into account? If you were there'd be no announcements until 2023
