JDark: Man I was really into this the build was cool af had a horror movie vibe to it and then Billie Eilish hit and totally killed that vibe, and I found myself like wtf while some lyrics apply I guess I wasn't aware he was seducing our fathers 2020 man lol. While I respect the choice to go with a rock remix Billie and Taker just don't mesh in my opinion also the transition between songs was a little jarring other than that the editing was solid.
Cheeze: Dude you when you edit certain people it just comes out so much nicer your Asuka edits remind me of the Bryan ones so in depth and you're understanding of the wrestler shines. The cc was great your use of color isolation looked beautiful with Asuka's gear/hair and the general vibe of the song you chose and I love the overlaying clip effect you had going on as well as the slight digital looking thing you had going in the slower parts with the black & white, and you did a great job portraying her transformation from the humble wrestler that she was starting in NXT to the arrogant champion especially with that little bit of the song going on about strong narcissistic tendencies with the clips of her giving off that better than you vibe after beating Ember.

Jdark: A Taker MV ayyy! I really enjoyed the flow of this in the first song, went very smooth and had nothing really to mention, I thought the presentation of Taker was done in the way it should be, song was fitting, and just such smooth and at the same time, quite creepy vibe vibe, I loved that! Also, I thought you made a great decision of using black bars to hide watermark, the video really benefitted from that. The song transition, IMO, was the biggest con of the video, as it killed the pace and overall vibe this video had, but I totally get it! You went on a character change and you wanted to use Billie's song to edit the American Badass gimmick, I mean it's totally fine what you did and I found myself enjoying this a lot by the end ! Some minor issues with speed ups but nothing too noticeable, you delivered a great video in the end that did justice for The Deadman! Really enjoyed this work.
Cheeze: You just are on another level with Asuka, like you totally know how and what to add in order to make me enjoy this so much everytime you edit Asuka, it's incredible. I thought this was one hell of a way to continue your Asuka saga, your Nightmares video is still probably the best video I've seen from your channel but this like one little notch from that and here you actually added so much to this edit especially with the CC at 1:47, I popped for that because it was brilliant, not that I would personally enjoy a green and red CC in the borders but like here it looked like it belonged and it added so much since it reminds me of Asuka's hair. As for the edit I thought everything went very smooth and I thought the way you made the intro was badass, with Regal introducing Asuka and while he said "the hottest free agent" you showed her indy work, that was pretty neat. I was a fan of the flow as well, I thought 2:03 drumming it looked so badass and I popped for the spinning kick transition after that. Also, that ghosting fx you used as the song kicked was cool. Fantasic work!
JDark: When there’s been so many Undertaker tributes and such in the past it takes quite a unique and creative angle to make something that’s going to stand out. Going with the epic movie trailer-like song was definitely a bold choice but I think it was a great fit to the Undertaker character. The Billie Eilish song took me out of the transition to the American badass character right from the get go, I really wished you could’ve gotten a better song there. Editing overall was very solid I just think you had two separate MV’s here with two songs on different spectrums and took away a bit from the video as a whole.
CheeZe: I feel like every second video I watch from this competition is a CheeZe video, man when do you sleep? Another really solid video here man, you know how good you are. I will say I wasn’t the biggest fan of the song choice at the start but I mean it definitely fits the vibe of the video and the Asuka character so can’t fault you there. Another fantastic job!
Jdark: ooo this was scary. Those first 2 minutes were horrifying and brought back not so good memories of when I used to be scared of this man hehe. This was a very fun tribute to the two gimmicks Undertaker did! Big fan of the lovely clips you choose to put on your videos! These clips make the videos look like a trailer for an upcoming blockbuster film lol. And even the instrumental made it feel super dramatic. It really went perfect for the Deadman gimmick. And great transition to the last half of the video. I honestly didn't know what to expect when I realized that there was still a minute left, so once I heard "Bad Guy" and saw Undertaker in his biker gimmick I knew I was in for a pleasant surprise! I honestly think the song went really well for this gimmick. It has a super upbeat flow that's perfect to showcase his bad ass moments. Good work on making this video not super long. I think if it were me editing this, I would have edited to the whole "Bad Guy" song which would have dragged; so good job on keeping the last half short and sweet! The whole video was cool and I honestly see myself watching this many times in the future! Keep up the awesome work Jdark!
CheeZe: Damn, this was just as scary as Jdark's video, although not as terrifying as the first part of this Asuka saga. This has more of a badass/monster vibe to it, while the first part felt sinister and creepy. First off, loved that color transition at 0:18. Everything before that was all colorized with a whole happy vibe greeting Asuka to NXT or the WWE universe, but once that transition hit it was almost like a symbol of her true colors showing as she looks back at the wrestlers in the ring with a horrifying smile. Which leads to a quick recap of the destruction she caused quickly in her few months at NXT, and winning the NXT title as soon as she got there, assuring her dominance in the women's division! And the whole recap of her destroying everyone as she's champ really proves why she's forever the queen of NXT. How dare she push the Goat Eva Marie like that at 2:14 tho, smh. Love the effects throughout the video. The blur/flickers/overlay or whatever was around the sides of the video really made the whole thing feel chaotic and crazy. Though, my favorite effect is probably the little glitches that occur. It goes so well with the voice over recording from the song where there's people talking about some sort of experiment. Speaking of voice overs, like always excellent job on picking the perfect voice overs for your subject. They always do an excellent job at providing more to your video. Even the voice overs where Asuka is talking in Japanese were perfect. Even though a non speaking Japanese person might not understand, the way she delivers what she's saying (which was her screaming) lets the viewers know that she means serious business! It's so crazy how this feels entirely different from the first part. You've done an incredible job at recapping Asuka's career so far. And I'm certain that the third part will be just as amazing as the first two parts have been. I'm highly anticipating for it!
I really liked this match. I'm hoping to see a rematch sometime in the future.

Jdark: I absolutely loved the build up! It was eerie and just very creepy, definitely fitting of the Undertaker. Clip choices were spot on and slow build up definitely worked. I can't believe that I am saying this but Billie Eilish song worked really well with The Undertaker? Just the way you portrayed it worked and clip choices were perfect! Ending made me chuckle and honestly I was so confused but absolutely loved this. Kudos for cretivity and trying this really unique and brave try! Really enjoyable video!
Cheeze: Man just the depth that you went for here is mindblowing! I love that Asuka was presented as someone charismatic and cute but also as someone who should be feared while in the ring, that's exactly how she is you did it perfectly! Song choice was perfect because it makes you kinda uncomfortable and when mixed with that CC it just is a really scary mix! I love clip choices and how so seamlessly you were transitioning through her "phases" let's say. Asuka really deserves to be presented as something more than just a "dancing woman who smiles and yells in Japanese" and you absolutely killed it! Ending felt like it was ripped straight out of a horror movie and I can't wait for part 3!
Jdark Man, that intro and first two minutes were great! It was creepy, incredibly well edited, clip selection was beautiful and was setting up for something wonderful. And look im actually a big Billie Ellish fan, she gets a stupid amount of hate for no reason imo and has some incredible music. Her album is a work of art. But the transition between songs was incredibly jarring, and you used a bad rock remix of the song as well. The editing during that part is actually incredibly well done still, however unfortunately after that part it kinda kills the momentum of the video imo.
CheeZe Holy shit how many videos did you make for this competition?! Another really fucking great video man. The editing on this one insane, you went and did your thing on this. Those CCs and effects were incredible. You really have a knack at capturing Asuka perfectly in all the videos you have made for her, its like WWE should watch your videos and take some notes and see how to properly book and write Auskas character. Shes a badass and you made her come across that so well in 3 minutes. Fantastic job and thanks for all the hard work on this competition. You made 5 videos this competition?! And all are equally incredible. Great stuff.
Jdark: This was well edited. I thought the CC on your footage looked nice and crisp. I think some voiceovers in the instrumental section would have maybe helped some. The Billie Eilish part caught me off guard. It was also well editing and picked up the video a bit, but something doesn’t sit right with me watching the Undertaker wrestling to “might seduce your dad type”...there’s a bit of a disconnect there.
CheeZe: you’re a machine with the volume of videos you release, while keeping such a high quality. I usually hate the selective color effect, but you really made it work perfectly here. All of the editing basics are flawlessly executed of course. I don’t have much to comment on - it’s a really solid video. I think it’s lesser than your other videos in this competition, but that still makes it better than most everyone’s videos.
jdark - this was really cool. Really enjoyed the song choices, especially the first one. Started out with a nice horror vibe, took your time to set the scene and introduce the character before jumping right into the action. Great clip selection, very cinematic vibe. The transition between the two songs was pretty jarring, but actually works well because Taker's transition between the two gimmicks was pretty jarring and nonsensical as well. Second song worked surprisingly well too, wouldn't have expected it to if i had just listened to it and somebody told me "Biker Taker". Really enjoyed it!
Cheeze - Cool to see an Asuka sequel, and seems like you left the door open to turn it into a trilogy. This is more of a straightforward MV compared to part 1 I'd say, and it does a great job highlighting her NXT career. Also shows off your versatility as an editor, making two such different videos on the same wrestler Seems like "NXT run MV" is its own genre at this point with some typical elements like the Regal introduction, chasing and then winning the belt, and then another voice-over at the end to put over the dominance of the featured wrestler. Not gonna complain, as that structure obviously works super well, and I'm not sure I've seen too many videos pull it off better than this one. Editing of course is very polished, great looking color effects. Great job.
jdark: Billie Eilish and The Undertaker? Holy shit.. At least it was with a rock/metal instrumental lmao. The intro had an amazing vibe, made the video a lot more interesting imo. The editing was good, kinda gave me the oldschool vibes. Clip choices were on point and the way you ended the video was lovely. Amazing work!
CheeZe: This was wonderful! I absolutely loved the CC, it fits Asuka perfectly imo. The effects were insane, voiceovers were awesome, I don't even know what to say at this point. Incredible stuff. Can't wait to see Part 3!
Jdark - Lot of no's from me on this one. I know you were always big on the trailer music when editing wrestling videos, but this one was super boring after only a short time. Your overall editing was fine, as I would hope, but once that remix came in....nope. Billie Eilish can actually work great with taker--a normal song of hers, though. She has some seriously melancholy and depressing tones in a lot of her songs, and that would work quite well with Mark--his deadman gimmick, of course. This particular song really doesn't do any thing for the "American Badass/Big Evil" character--lyrically. The way it kicked in was a little sudden, as well. It really felt like two separate videos put together--each portraying two of his gimmicks.
Cheeze - I really enjoyed this one. Very smooth through out the entire thing. The effects you had were super attractive--though, I wasn't the biggest fan of the red and green gradient you had in there for a moment, but it wasn't overly powerful and was short lived. Very crisp editing, nothing overly done. Great showcase of her time in NXT. Nothing but good things here, man. Great work.
Jdark: I think there was a bit of a disconnect here with me. I think Pick and I kinda have the some opinions and taste when it comes to videos because I too didn't like the trailer music, I usually can't get interested in a video with that type of music unless theres some type of voice overs making it a bit more compelling in which I think this video really needed. The first half I don't think anything was all that wrong with the editing I just think your style seems a bit dated. Once the Billie section started it got better but, the sped up clips dont work for me, there's much better ways of keeping up with a pace of a song than speeding clips up. idk you've been doing this as long as me, I just feel like I shouldn't really have to talk about basics at this point.
Cheeze: Idk why but every Askuka video blends together for me so I already felt like I've seen this lmao. Pretty sick video tho, the effects were a big highlight here for me. Your transitions through feuds and matches were super smooth! The video was close to 3min but it felt short (a good thing) so really great job on that!
Jdark I enjoyed this to an extent. I applaud the way you approached this character video. The first section was super interesting. The creepy music vibes coinciding with the creepiness of the Undertaker. You definitely built him up as this big boss of the underworld that puts fears into everyones heart. And I want to say similar compliments to the second part, but man, Billie really put a damper on my enjoyment you had established. I wish you used an instrumental of that version because the music kicked ass. But hearing Billie talking about "the seduce your dad type" is an extremely distracting and oft-putting line to connect to Undertaker. I know not all lyrics will always relate to your video topic, but that part is so out there that it brought down my enjoyment a bit. Cool structure, great clip selection, pacing was spot on, and the CC looked nice. But yeah, an example of where a song can bring a video down.
CheeZe Why didn't you tell me you wanted another match?! I could've just split my last video in half! This is a great successor to your Kana mv and a great follow-up in the Asuka series by you. Dude, I've made several attempts at the single color effect but I can never get them to look as smooth as clean as you. I hearby crown you the HSL King, because you are the master of that effect. Asuka's NXT run feels like ages ago, so this was a nice reminder of that whole time. Like the Kana video, you once-again showcased her "evolution" so well, starting off as some sort of silent assassin and slowly showing her transition into a cockier, larger-than-life champion. You already know I can't wait for part 3! Though you should do a part 1.5 video covering her gravu... nevermind.
JDark - Possibly swerve of the year here haha. I dug the intro, it captured Taker and his character, but the song choice could've been a lot better. I know some people are mixed on it, but I think the song was out of place. Talking about fucking someone's dad isn't what I envision for a Taker MV lol. The editing itself was very nice, but with a different song I think it would've helped your chances a lot.
YES! I loved Part 1, and Part 2 is so great. Asuka looks like an absolute beast in this, and the song gave me goosebumps just seeing the action match it. The ghostly black and white effect was awesome, and I have nothing but positive thoughts on this. I'm stoked for the next part. I didn't think the first part could be matched, but at this rate, it just keeps getting better and better.
