Screwjob-a match with a controversial or unsatisfying finish, often involving cheating or outside interference. A worked screwjob, is part of the storyline and the match is intended to end controversially. A shoot screwjob is extremely rare and occurs when a change is made without one of the participants knowing, creating an outcome that is contrary to what was supposedly planned for the storyline by the participants. The most famous example of a screwjob of this type is the Montreal Screwjob.































Booker-The person in charge of setting up matches and writing angles is the booker.It is the wrestling equivalent to a screenwriter. Booking is also the term a wrestler uses to describe a scheduled match or appearance on a wrestling show.

Screwjob- A finish that isn?t clean, such as a wrestler being hit with a chair behind the referee?s back and then pinned. Or when another wrestler or group of wrestlers runs in and causes a Disqualification. A joking term for a screwjob finish is a Dusty finish, named after Dusty Rhodes, who was very fond of using these types of finishes when booking for the NWA. Screw jobs are usually done to save the losing wrestler's credibility, or to show -- yet at the same time save for a later date -- a big-name match (e.g. having a match on Raw that is also going to happen at a Pay-Per-View).































Booker- The person who is in charge of creating storylines, deciding which wrestlers to push, writing TV shows, etc. The booker is basically in charge of putting together a product that the fans will find entertaining. His position is one of great power and extreme importance. In the case of large promotions like the WWF and WCW, there are usually several bookers. The booker can be anybody from the promoter himself to an active wrestler on the roster (e.g. at one time, Kevin Nash in WCW). In the past, members of the WWF booking committee have included Vince McMahon , Jim Ross, Jim Cornette, Bruce Pritchard and Vince Russo.
