Just before Global Wars...
- WWE creative team member Joe Belcastro will have a seminar at American Stage Theater Company in St Petersburg, Florida at 1 PM ET. Belcastro will talk about how to pitch ideas to TV network executive. Belacastro told The Tampa Tribune's Paul Guzzo: "Pitching a story properly is everything. You have to know every nuance of your story. You need to offer them more than a good idea. These people hear great ideas every day.
- The same website also spoke with Austin Aries, who is holding an unrelated seminar at The Orpheum in Ybor City, Florida at 5:00 PM ET. He will talk about how he helps storylines with his in-ring work. Aries said: "We need to make it believable. Just going out there and flipping around and hitting each other in the head aren't enough. Each wrestler needs to know who he is and who his opponent is and put together a story line that makes sense and gets the crowd excited and invested in who wins and loses."
- Ring of Honor has announced a Jim Ross event to take place in Toronto before ROH Global Wars. Ringside: An Evening with Jim Ross happens on MAy 9 at the The Danforth Music Hall in Toronto and is presented by Embrace. Ross will tell stories from his 40 years in wrestling, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
Here's the official description from the press release: "From sports entertainment executive to New York Times Bestselling Author to entrepreneur, Jim Ross has certainly worn many hats. As one of the most influential sports executives of the past 40 years, J.R. has been welcomed into the homes of millions of viewers each and every week. His cool yet dry Southern charm became the soundtrack for some of wrestling's many memorable clashes and spectacular moments in the sport's rich history. J.R.'s tales of the road and personal anecdotes feature some of sports entertainment's most legendary stars."
