Yeah I am feeling the same way. I know we wanted to have variety of appearances on these shows.
I'll have the Mallard placed as a reserve if a spot doesn't get filled
I am going to pull the Mallard as a possibility so focus on working on my e-fed because I know if the Mallard does end up on the supershow I'd obsess over him bring ready for the show and thinking of a new look
The Imperial Assassin was born in America but took a voyage to Japan and became an international star. The Imperial Assassin is a cruel man with a methodical approach to wrestling. He is a master of submissions and has ended many a career with his finishing hold, Kura Akumanohoyo (Black Devil Embrace).
The Imperial Assassin currently competes in the Prestige Wrestling Association (PWA) and teams with and mentors Crusher Sato.
Finisher: Dragon Clutch ( Kura Akumanohoyo: Black Devil Embrace) Favorite moves: Iron Fingers of Death Cobra Twist
AAW seeks to challenge the Imperial Assassin. I will give the details when I get back from vacation
If any free agent spot are open I'd like to submit Justin Loomis if possible.
Inspired by martial arts films, Justin Loomis, studied various forms of traditional combat in his youth. He eventually started playing guitar with the same level of focus and determination. When his bandmate started the promotion, Port City Pro, the vision of combining martial arts and pro wrestling gave Loomis a new challenge. He does a variety of aerial attacks that are inspired by his martial arts action movie idols, but a good ol knee to the face is how he usually likes to finish matches. His gear is inspired by Scorpion from Mortal Kombat.

The Flying Basque. His exact birthplace remains unclear. Spain, France, California... no one really knows. He's trying to make a name for himself by sprinkling a few aerial moves on a strike heavy moveset hence his nickname of "Hegan Euskaraz", the Flying Basque.

My apologies for not really picking up the ball once it stopped rolling. Or kicking it to keep the momentum going? I don't know what sports analogy to go for here.
Since most of the early legwork was all Will, I wasn't sure what to do. I'd checked on Will about a month ago when he had mostly disappeared from discord, and hadn't heard anything, so... I hope he's okay. :/
At any rate, I had been thinking about this off and on but it always kept being pushed back to 2nd or 3rd priority behind my day job and my side job of digital art. In light of that, if anyone has some suggestions on what to do, I'm all ears.
One option might be to re-open this to a potential new group of organizers. I mean shit happens, people get busy. We had a list of people I think that were open to being organizers, so maybe we have some fresh volunteers that would like a crack at it?
If not, again no biggie- there seems to be a healthy amount of community stuff going on right now anyways.
I'm sorry to hear that Will is going through a tough time. He is an enthusiastic member of our community and I could tell how excited he was to put this show together. I hope things get better with RL issues.
I have two suggestions: one for this project in general and one for this specific show.
1) When creating a team for each show, also choose back-up people. Have a back-up person for the main person running it and make sure they communicate so the back-up person can carry out the wishes of the main person in case they need time off. A 3-person team sounds like a lot but it's really easy (and increasingly likely as we get older) for any 3 of us to disappear or get busy at any given time.
2) Like Lanky said, delay this specific show until Will gets back (he can get dibs to run the next one) and choose another 3 people to run the next show. Do a "roll call" first to make sure that everyone on the current list for running shows is able to do that right now.
This project is still new and the momentum from the first show isn't done because it was so good. But since there are people around to participate in the next show, don't wait to start setting up a new team to run one. The fact this project was set-up with multiple people able to run it is a huge strength that should be utilized now.
