It's Great vs Mr PPV's ability
« on: November 09, 2019, 05:33:24 AM »
Hi guys

I've a question to clarify.

Could "it's great to be back here in..." reverse Mr PPV's non unique high risk when played as a reversal from hand?

I know "it's great" can't ignore ability restriction for first liner. But the 2nd para kinda fits the bill for reversal, "reverse any non-unique card with a can only be reversed restriction", which is exactly the exact wording when PPV plays a non-unique high risk.

Would like a clarification/confirmation on this too, as there are differing views on how this works out to be.

Thank you in advance.

Right from the OMNI-FAQ:

Mr. Pay-Per-View
-Non-superstar-specific High Risk maneuvers cannot be reversed from hand with It’s Great To Be Back Here In…, but non-unique High Risk maneuvers could be reversed from Arsenal by that card.
-If there is at least one card already in hand, a card may be discarded to play Unscripted if Mr. PPV does not have less Pre-match cards in the Ring area than his opponent.

Also, just for future reference:
It’s Great To Be Back Here In…
-This reversal will not ignore restrictions from Enforcer or Superstar Abilities such as Big Freak’n Machine.
-This reversal cannot ignore restrictions from RMS cards such as Atomic Lariat.
-If a restriction exists from an Ability (not a card), Great To Be Back can still reverse from another area if applicable.  EXAMPLE:  Big Freak’n Machine plays a non-unique maneuver; Great To Be Back cannot be played from hand, however if overturned and no other restrictions exist, it could reverse the maneuver due to BFM’s restriction.
-This card can be played to negate restriction such as Melina: Naughty Manager and The Title Is on the Line!
-If Extreme Warfare is in effect, any non-unique maneuver can be reversed by Great To Be Back when played from hand or overturned (unless another reversal restriction prevents it).
Thanks to the much hated Revolution Format and Roman Reigns' spear I beat three other folks to be your current Raw Deal Champion and the "most irrelevant one in history" ...yay me :)
