I love how in the picture of Petey Williams from that programme, it has the “TNA Wrestling Superstar” tooltip. Was that screen-shotted from a web page or something?

It's not a screenshot as the resolution wouldn't be high enough for print, but it is spectacularly poor editing, like how all of the images have completely different levels of brightness/contrast on the cover

I flagged all of this and none of it was done.... I was so pissed. Bunch of donkeys - it irritates me to this day.

You wouldn’t believe how many times I’ve had to explain that when I’ve been sent 200x200 pixel images for say, an A3 poster. “Just use this, mate.” “I can’t. It’ll look like arse and pixelated to buggery.”

 

But the Petey Williams image, it’s definitely been capped from something, otherwise it wouldn’t have the lovely Windows XP-esque tooltip.

Wasn't there a Q&A/fan fest type of thing with CM Punk and other workers from the event filmed that was released on DVD with the event? I dont know if Herbie had it on his youtube channel or someone else, but it was on Youtube a few years back. Cant seem to find it, though.

Love that dvd! And some absolute scrote opened the questioning with "What's your favourite alcoholic drink?" or something to that effect.

I was standing near enough to that chap, with a bad hangover, and I wanted to knee him in the back.

If I recall correctly there was supposed to be interviews with others (Samoa Joe, AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels defo did Q&As that day) too but someone had some device that jammed the cameras or something and the footage was destroyed. Maybe Herbie can expand on that.

 

The best question that day was someone asking AJ Styles if he'd ever been out on the piss with Scott Hall. There was also some guy who creepily told Foley he was watching the 'Cane Dewey' promo and getting excited the night before....to then ask 'Pepsi or coke?'

Yep, and Punk fired back by calling him a douchebag and ripping the piss out of him for wearing one black fingerless leather glove.  I figured maybe it was a weightlifting glove, for those occasions in everyday life when you need ONE HAND'S worth of extra grip.

Ha, that was me! Was good to meet Herbie and Branquey that day.

I believe we were going to watch Wales vs Ireland in the Grand Slam decided together than afternoon, but I pulled a Nolan.

I still have all those interviews - they were just never edited. We only put Foley & CM Punk on the DVD due to space, and were going to release the rest at a later date - never got around to it.

 

Some knob brought a Sony camera remote and stopped our wide camera from recording for a minute. But our on-stage camera guy noticed it, and just put blutac over the infrareds. There was no "blocker", whatever that is.

I've still got my copy of the programme around somewhere. The cropping on the picture of Scorpio is spectacularly poor

 

Bagga has got better at the cropping of images, judging by a recent poster:

Design and attention to detail skills seem to be lacking still, though (the random 'D' at the bottom of the telephone number, for example)
