The questions I have are: In an Efed setting where ideally we would like everyone to be happy with a match outcome, or at least not upset. Is it better to write up 'controversial' endings to matches than clean endings? Do we as writers (Not me anymore but I used to do this) have a responsibility to our rosters to make sure that in a following weeks promo a character has an excuse/reason for losing that he/she can call upon so as not to get cornered by another character?
When I was writing, I always struggled with how to end my matches. Because one way or another, someone was potentially going to be disappointed (hopefully not as it's just an efed) with losing. I always felt that adding controversy was the ideal way of solving this, as the losing party could always say 'Yeah I lost, but only because blah blah blah. I guess i'd just like to know other peoples opinions, whether they disagree with me and think that clean wins gives more validation to a result?
So is it for the best that writers are diplomatic and sit on the fence for the sake of story lines? I think so, what do you think?
