By the way, Iowa will show up in a BIG way next year.  I keep calling it the official RAW DEAL Reunion.

I wanna see hundreds of Raw Dealers there.

If I'm not there as an exhibitor, I'll actually play in Worlds next year.

Yeah well I am one of the few gamers that shower. Mostly because I call myself a former gamer, If you go to the bigger poker tournaments, they get funky too.

Gen con was fantastic and I want to congratulate my friend and partner in crime Drew for winning like the champ he is. I was happy to see new people and everyone was a class act and was a pleasure to play against.

That being said I feel the loss of my title weighing on my mind.  I will be back next year and I will rain down upon my opponent  in such a way that no one will be able to weather the storm. If you thought some of past decks were cheesy or broken you haven't seen anything.

Drew I love you like a brother but there is a clock ticking down till the belt put around my waist.

Oh, and if I'm not mistaken, Frankie's gonna be there next year?

I think it's time for me to come out of retirement! Next year should be one amazing series of events!

Well, I just want everyone to know that I'm already planning on prize support for next year. I just came from a meeting with John Morrison and Melina at their home and mentioned RAW Deal to them and all the prize support I try to provide. John was excited about it and gave me a couple of items to hand out for next year, autographed of course!

I might even make the trip myself, maybe not to play, but to definitely help hand out prizes!  ;D

I'm really happy that D2 didn't need to use my speed-dial for any rulings, I'm running on 2 hours' sleep and he'd probably have to read me the cards over our cell phones.  :laugh:

Nope he just called me lol. Felt good to help even though I wasn't there.
YES I wanted to win damn it cause I'm a Belt Mark!!!

I Need the Belt Don't give me a Raise I'll Just take the Belt.

I'll wear it and nothing else to Church on Sunday.

I'm so stoked for next year! A former champion from overseas, last year's champion talking smack, the Iowans (sp?) claiming to come in full force, the best Raw Deal manager and probably best Revolution player I know plans to come as well, I can't wait to defend! I'm so excited I'm putting together a trade list for all my ideas.

Beg, borrow, or steal.. hitchhike, bus, or yellow cab... I'm GOING to be at GenCon next year.

Since, you know, the world's supposed to end in 2012 and all that.. we might as well go out with a big Raw Deal bang, haha!

Good God, don't cab. I took a ten minute ride this morning and it cost me $25. I'm not even in a large city, like Toronto or LA, where the starting fee is $20 :P. Insane.

Back to topic, I've never been to any Con, planned on going the first year Raw Deal died, but it never came through. Now that I live on the west coast, it's more expensive, but definately something I will keep in mind. It'd be a blast!

Anytime.... in my eyes Virtual Kane is one of the top 5 most busted decks in the game right now, but if you're gonna use him, use him all out....then get all your friends mad at you, and you put it back in the box till next year in Indy!

Well, if I said 'carjacking' I might be a suspect, so I needed some third option there.. :P

If our situation improves both Myself and Amber are gonna be there. If Possible I'd like to have dinner with the old crew just to catch up. Sadly I don't know if I'll be doing Raw Deal unless I get knocked out of the YCS early.

It would sure be nice to do a big tournament somewhere that people might want to visit. I'd love to go, but paying for a flight and hotel in Indianapolis is pretty spendy for a town I have no desire to visit. I loved doing worlds during Wrestlemania because it gave me an event and some pro baseball games to hit while I was there. I'm not saying don't do anything at Gencon, but let's do an event in Chicago, Orlando, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, or during Wrestlemania to help justify travel expenses.
