Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

I like Jericho a lot but as a 1st round pick I don't know if Jericho can carry a company

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

LOL at thinking that Jericho at pick #11 is unreasonable.

I had Y2J ranked 13th, so taking him at 11 is fine imo.

Jericho wasn't really on my radar but he's fine here obv. I'm up from my nap so can get a run going if burdz is around.

Think it should be a rule that you can't have two of the same guy on your roster

Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Okay know one of my pics am waiting for amount of gimmicks on another guy clarification from Dylan for second (I will just ask itt if he doesn't respond by time write up is done since I'm assuming some iteration of this guy has to go soon). Writeup incoming. Might melt faces and be lol me but I'm getting my 1 overall given the rules here.

Wait so SCSA can't get over in 2017 but you have no problem saying an undead wizard from the Wild West would?

Yeah Austin not being able to get over in 2017 is one of the weirder collective takes I've seen on here.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Allright since we're allowed to use part timers however we want and the goal here is to build the best wrestling company (which I'm assuming includes revenue, ratings, and popularity) - pretty sure this guy is my clear 1.

Spoiler:


I'll just get it out of the way up front and admit for almost all things wrestling related these days Yabba Dabba Rock pretty much sucks and is a shell of his former self in pretty much every way. If we have to use part timers as part timers he's nowhere near my radar and I don't even consider drafting him until way late.

However, given I already get both his mega-over WWE run (which he accomplished by being completely awesome) and a guy who (according to Forbes) was the HIGHEST GROSSING ACTOR IN THE WORLD last year I think he's pretty clearly massively valuable in this. I'm getting a guy who already has an established wrestling legacy, left and absolutely crushed Hollywood, now coming back full-time on my programming for two shows a week and every PPV.

Like what he is now or not, casuals and (a lot) of smarks will never get tired of Rock appearances imo. We definitely don't plan on using him in the ring every show but he will be on every show in some capacity (whether it be cutting what are usually mediocre promos by his standards, helping build feuds/angles, or something as little as being on commentary to help put over younger guys or whatever) and he simply sells/draw a crowd.

Being the wrap here and being able to get another guy who is actually good on mic/in ring to pair with what will be by far the biggest megastar/draw of this draft helps me if a lot of people think I'm out of my mind reaching/spewing here but I think given our rule set he is the guy I woulda took at 1 overall. Second write-up incoming.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Isn't Hollywood Rock the heel version that beat Austin at WM 19? I believe you're referring to Yabba Dabba Rock. I guess I can't argue with the pick though.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Hahaha like I said I don't watch near as much as I used to so you may be correct. I'm taking the latest version of The Rock possible.

Updated to YABBA DABBA Rock since I like the way it sounds anyway.
