Known Result or Surprise? Mixed Wrestling Question

Hey Readers,

This morning, I posed a little question on Twitter:

"Do you like to know who wins a competitive mixed match before you watch the video? Or do you like the result to be a surprise?"

It's only been a few hours since posting, but the response has been very nice (especially considering I only tweeted the question once).  Thanks for that, guys!

I also started a similar discussion on the forum back in February 2014 (that thread is here).  Similar to the responses coming from Twitter so far, opinions are pretty mixed on this matter!

I absolutely respect both sides on this matter.  And I think that is why I am so fascinated with the question.  I totally understand the thrill of the surprise - heck, I've been avoiding Game of Thrones spoilers.  I also understand that for the pro-"Surprise" people, not knowing the result ahead of time can make viewing the match much more like watching a live telecast.  However, I also completely understand the "Want to Know" point of view: What if the result will be upsetting?  What if you're looking for a *specific* outcome?  When you're purchasing an item, are you comfortable going into that purchase without full information?

Both camps make perfect sense, and I could go on at length about how both are completely valid.  However, the point of this post is something other.

I err on the side of caution when it comes to video descriptions.  Indeed, when it comes to competitive mixed wrestling videos, my descriptions normally reveal the result.

However, I am curious about releasing a video that does not reveal the result in the description.  And I am curious about putting together a match that could be a "surprise" in this sense.

It's very do-able.... but who would the opponents be?

Here's a list of local ladies and gentlemen who work with me and who are willing to do competitive mixed wrestling.  Select a few and make me a proposal! (they are also listed in the left hand column of the DoomMaidens website).

VeVe Lane     - 5'4" and 120 lbs
Amazon Annie     - 6' and 200 lbs
Crazy Azy     - 5'2" and 130 lbs
Rachel DD    - 5'4" and 120 lbs
Sircee       - 5'8" and 180 lbs


(Unfortunately, Keri is still rehabilitating her shoulder and can't do mixed competitive. Indra *may* or may not be up for fully competitive mixed.  I don't think Trish does fully competitive. ShaSha would be defeated by anyone in a competitive match)

Hanz      - 6'1" and 180 lbs
Diablo     - 5'6" and 165 lbs
Adrian    - 5'9" and 200 lbs
Thrash     - 5'6" and 140 lbs
Kevin     - 5'7" and 180 lbs
Frankie    - 5'4" and 145 lbs

Pick a pairing, leave a note here or e-mail me, and I'll contact the wrestlers and try to put it together!  Local wrestlers are easy to bring together.  If you want more info on the wrestlers, just let me know.

If you want to see special rules, also let me know.

And the match will be released without results being revealed.
