RE-WRITING PROMOS AT TV:

* PROMO BULLET POINTS
1. B-Team welcome everyone to the BBQ // Show off the various food items
2. B-Team say that they are next in line for the RAW Tag Team Titles
3. Titus and Slater confront B-Team about their claim
4. Titus starts food fight which ends with B-Team putting Rhyno through a table

- WHAT IS THE PREMISE // DOES THE PROMO MAKE SENSE (as a STAND-ALONE and in SHOW TOTALITY)?

- TELL A STORY: MAKE IT ENTERTAINING // GRAB THE AUDIENCE'S ATTENTION // BIG FINISH

- DO NOT CHANGE TENSES

- REHEARSE YOUR SEGMENT BACKSTAGE and if required, IN THE ARENA BEFORE DOORS -- if for whatever reason you can't rehearse in the arena then COMMUNICATE THIS ASAP (BEFORE your segment airs)

- CHECK THE LATEST DRAFTS for the LATEST CHANGES

- EXECUTE VKM (VINCE MCMAHON) NOTES/DIRECTION -- if you find any notes do not "work" during in-arena rehearsals or while producing the segment backstage, then COMMUNICATE THIS ASAP (BEFORE your segment airs)

- TIME THE PROMO (TALENT SHOULD NOT ADLIB)

- PROPS, PRODUCERS, TRUCK -- EVERYONE needs to be on the SAME PAGE

HEADSET/GORILLA CUES:

- TELL KD (KEVIN DUNN), VKM AND KIDMAN IF YOU THINK YOUR SEGMENT IS GOING TO RUN HEAVY (BEFORE the segment starts)

- SPEAK CLEARLY so KD // VKM can HEAR YOU

- STAY AHEAD OF CUES (REPEAT YOURSELF IF NECESSARY): MIC PLACEMENT // MUSIC CUES // ORDER OF ENTRANCES, etc....

- NOTE any SPECIAL CAMERA SHOTS or specific BLOCKING

- GIVE the LAST LINE and MUSIC TO HIT ON THE OUT

- WHO GOES OVER IN THE MATCH (if applicable)

AFTERMATH:

- RUN INS
- MUSIC NEEDED
- REPLAYS
- PROMO / INTERVIEW
