Ben Pasco Presents: Tassles and Hassles the Crowdfunding Experiment

Hey guys, long time no see. If anyone still checks out IRM…then take a look at this project I”m working on for Tassles and Hassles the Series


Check it out Here
http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tassles-and-hassles-the-series/x/3108861

We’re two affable, stunningly good looking, and positive adjectivey, guys from Massachusetts who have come here to Indiegogo with an idea. We’re both recent college graduates who have always wanted to collaborate with sketch comedy, but particularly the idea of a web series. For years we have bandied about ideas for premises and parodies, for sketches and spoofs, for web series and short films but real life is a fickle mistress. We have bills to pay, we have families to support and most importantly we’ve never had the right maelstrom of equipment and motivation…until now.

With your help we would like to begin work on a project we both love, based on a short film Ben created in college called Tassles and Hassles.

The original Tassles and Hassles, which is that video above you should watch…go ahead…I’m waiting…, is a simple premise. Given the complex algorithm that goes into roommate selection processes at colleges, what if you weren’t given a best friend for a roommate? What if you weren’t even given the roommate from hell? What if you found yourself sharing a dorm room with a pale, shirtless, face painted weirdo who think he’s a professional wrestler? Nothing has been as fun as creating and shooting that film and it’s an idea that’s lingered around our heads for a long time. We’ve pitched countless ideas, texted each other constant concepts and it all comes back to one question.

What would happen to the Pro Wrestler roommate in the real world?

That’s the basic idea being coming to indiegogo…we want to take the concept of Tassles and Hassles and bring it to you. Not only that, but with the money we raise we want to explore all of our other ideas too and bring the world the strangeness inside our brains for good and bad.

We want to the world to see sketches like Danzig with the Stars, The Jesse Ventura Supernatural Talk Show, and much more. FIrst though we want to use thi money to make our pet project a reality.

The History of the WWE Trading Deadline

Today is July 31st, which is probably my favorite day of the Major League Baseball season. MLB general managers have until the 4 PM deadline today to make trades in which they either hope to improve their team in the future, or hope to push their team towards a 2012 World Series title. However, there was an equivalent to this frantic timetable of deal making in the WWE. In 2004 and 2005, the WWE experienced 3 trades between RAW and Smackdown in the immediate aftermath of the WWE Draft. Now, it is time to nitpick each of these trades with the benefit of hindsight, and determine which brand won each deal.

2004: Smackdown trades Triple H to RAW for Booker T, Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley

This deal came as the result of Triple H being drafted to Smackdown during the 2004 WWE Draft, in which John Cena actually picked the lottery ball instead of Smackdown GM Paul Heyman. Heyman tried to re-do his unknown and unwilling pick, but RAW GM Eric Bischoff refused to allow it. That was one of my favorite moments in WWE Draft history, but this trade sure isn’t. Now, to be fair, Booker T did end up winning the World Heavyweight Title once during his run on Smackdown, as King BOOKAH—I mean King Booker. Hell, even the Dudley Boyz got a WWE Tag Team Title reign out of it. Still though, who in the hell thought this trade was even remotely fair? Triple H was worth at least one full time main eventer, or three upper mid carders. Instead of getting a package along the lines of Chris Jericho, Edge and Shelton Benjamin, they got one upper mid carder and a pair of tag team specialists that would be gone within the year. I’m just assuming that since Smackdown didn’t have a general manager during this time period (then Smackdown GM Paul Heyman quit after being drafted to RAW), that this trade was handled by the WWE board of directors, or the secretary that picked up the phone when Bischoff called Titan Towers. Regardless of who approved this trade, RAW got away with robbery in doing this trade, by getting Triple H back for 50 cents on the dollar. Winner: RAW

2004: Smackdown trades A-Train and Chuck Palumbo to RAW for Rico and Miss Jackie

 

This deal was the second and final post draft trade in 2004, and boy, was it a barnburner. Raw traded the flamboyant Rico and his valet, Miss Jackie, for the duo of Albert and Chuck Palumbo. In 2004, there’s no doubt Smackdown won this trade, handily. The number of matches that A-Train and Palumbo had on RAW in 2004 could easily be counted on one hand, whereas Rico ended up winning the WWE Tag Team Titles with his partner, Charlie Haas. Even though Chuck Palumbo, as his short lived Custom Chucky P gimmick, was a part of the first wrestling match I ever saw, there’s no doubt that Smackdown initially won this trade handily. However, in April 2012, this trade reaped benefits for RAW in ways that no one could’ve predicted, as A-Train returned to the WWE on RAW, as the gaijin monster named Lord Tensai. Since A-Train/Tensai is the only one who currently has a job in the WWE from this trade, I can’t really give it to Smackdown. However, Tensai hasn’t really done anything except pin John Cena once and appear in a Money in the Bank ladder match. It also can’t be ignored that until 4 months ago, RAW got completely hosed in this trade.  Winners: Both RAW and Smackdown (Trade is a Push)

 

2005: Smackdown trades Mark Jindrak, Rene Dupree, Danny Basham, Kenzo Suzuki, Hiroko and Chavo Guerrero to RAW for William Regal, Candice Michelle, Sylvain Grenier, Simon Dean and Stevie Richards

 

This deal was the only post draft trade after the month long draft in June 2005, which is probably my favorite draft to date. Each week you wanted to tune in to both shows, to see what surprise Smackdown GM Teddy Long and RAW GM Eric Bischoff had for their one draft pick in the first three weeks, and their two draft picks in the fourth and final week. Although the suspense was initiated by the first pick of RAW, WWE Champion John Cena, I’m still mad at Teddy Long for drafting then World Heavyweight Champion Batista last. I wanted to see what that Smackdown Championship looked like, playa! Nevertheless, this post draft deal was one where I feel safe saying that RAW got completely hosed. First of all, only 4 of RAW’s pickups lasted the week, as Hiroko and Kenzo Suzuki were released almost immediately after this trade happened. Mark Jindrak had one match against Rene Dupree on RAW before he was released on July 5th. Rene Dupree had some minor success on RAW for about 2 months, before he suffered a severe hernia and was not seen until his short lived re-debut on ECW in 2006. Danny Basham had one match on Heat as Damaja, before he reunited with Doug Basham as Paul Heyman’s security force on ECW in 2006. Of all the guys RAW received, only Chavo Guerrero was on RAW past 2005, and was the only one still employed past 2007. Hell, Chavo might have been the only guy that RAW got who was on PPV during his RAW stint. Chavo did get a bit of push, first as the very controversial Kerwin White, and as Chavo after Eddie Guerrero died, but all it really just amounted to a win over JBL on the first Eddie tribute show and one Intercontinental Title match in 2006. Smackdown didn’t necessarily get any world champions, but compared to the haul RAW got, they looked like main eventers. William Regal would be a mainstay of Smackdown until 2007, and got pushes as a member of King Booker’s Court with Sir Finlay, Queen Sharmell, and The Little Bastard (oh, the halcyon days when Hornswoggle was just a little bastard), and as a member of tag teams with Paul Burchill and Dave Taylor. Candice Michelle didn’t really do anything of too much note after the trade, but at least she wasn’t fired within a week like her female counterpart on the RAW end of the deal, Hiroko. Sylvain Grenier would become the male fashion model Sylvain, and have a nice little TV feud with Hardcore Holly before wrestling on Velocity through 2005 and into 2006. The fact that Smackdown got Simon Dean meant that they won this trade regardless, even if they just got Simon Dean and a bucket of turnbuckle pads.  Hell, Stevie Richards reformed the bWo after he was traded and got a PPV match out of it, even though he would just fade into obscurity until he was moved to ECW in 2006. Neither side got any champions out of the trade, but the difference in longevity, importance to the brand and total PPV matches swings this trade in favor of Smackdown. Winner: Smackdown

Overall, if this analysis of WWE trades between RAW and Smackdown has proven anything, it just shows that trades in the WWE are just like trades between teams in any other major sport; you win some, you lose some and sometimes you’ll just plain break even.

Fitz and Bryan Ruin the Classics: Episode 11 – Not Jumping Jeff Farmer

War Games.  Hearing that name makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up and take note.  A match so brutal, so big, so violent, it can only be contained in not one, but two rings and a steel cage.  It’s the feud-ender…. so why was this like the second year in a row the nWo was facing WCW in it?  Oh well.  Fitz & Bryan take a look at War Games 1996, with the most anti-climactic ending ever, as well as a spotlight on “Not Jumping” Jeff Farmer.

El Pasco Texas: Learning to Let Go: Ben Pasco Attempts to Make Pro Wrestling Grow Up.

I’ve been out of college for only a year, but it’s hard for my brain to truly comprehend that. I still visit infrequently, I’m still friends with a lot of people who go there, and I still wake up every few days and think I’m in my dorm room. I can’t seem to break past that part of my life.  I know there’s a lot of jokes amongst people about my level of drinking, but I’ve reached a point where it isn’t cute anymore. There’s something about being away from a college campus that makes getting frequently destroyed at a bar kind of sad. I don’t know why it is that I can’t break from this. I think it has something to do with the fact that college was the last barrier holding me back from adulthood. It was that glorious last chance to destroy my body without repercussions, and ever since I left I’m losing my superpowers. I gained a few pounds, I got a bad left knee, I spent my entire days making dad jokes at a retail store…I’m not the same cute kid in a Shawn Michaels vest I used to be. I’m a slightly less cute adult in a Shawn Michaels Vest over a shirt and tie now. In case you were wondering what a mainly serious Ben Pasco would be like, this article is it.
