Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Very basic spreadsheet. If someone wants to create a more detailed one that'd be great, but for now I'm just going to use this.

+1 to this. Write-ups are important, but if you're on your phone or something and can't post a detailed one, at least write your pick's name in bold.

Even though I'm in the middle, +1 to the sentiment.

How many rounds is this going to be?

I'm not sure. I'll make a post at the end of each round with who's been picked.

There's no set amount. People can go as long as they want.

I'll take The Rock. You can just see by the reactions he gets today that he would draw all of the dimes.

Cool Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Passing up a couple guys that I actually want for having someone that smarks and marks love.

He is Gold. He is Berg. He is Goldberg.

Obviously having account issues. I am .iso and can't pm who's next. Haha, who's next. Get it? Har har

Not hating on the pick since it seems fine, but the reasoning is totally wrong. People give "you've still got it" chants to <undrafted, sorry> for successfully punching someone a few times. I assume for purposes of this draft that the person actually has to get over from scratch and doesn't just get the built-in nostalgia to start off.

I think I'm misunderstanding this draft. How is Stone Cold not the clear #1?

Also are 2002-04 Bork and 2012-present Bork not separate picks? I know it's the same gimmick but I assumed enough time has passed to distinguish them?

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

I mean maybe I'm wrong but I'd say late 90s wrestling was awesome because of Stone Cold (and others) not vice versa. It's not like wrestling was just cool and he was a beneficiary of that; he made it cool. Obviously booking played a part too but I take it we don't have to use the 2017 WWE booking team.

Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

I'm going with Mr. Wrestlemania himself.

Shawn Michaels.

One of the greatest in ring workers of all time who can wrestle anyone, in any match and make it a classic. He has enough edge and spunk to get over in 2017 and could play a great baby face or heel.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Who could get over in 2017?

How about someone that still gets chants in 2017 despite never appearing in the company since the 2014 Royal Rumble?



On the microphone, in the ring, even on commentary. No one can touch him.

CM Punk

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

teejayC- Brock in his first run is still available, it's a different enough gimmick.

TimmayB will take over for disko.

Ok cool. And he's already over when you get him right because of his previous run and UFC career? Like they still existed? Sorry for all the questions, I think that's it.
