Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Honestly have no clue in how Crow Sting would go over these days. Not saying he wouldn't go over saying I legit have no idea how he would fair. Think he's one of the most interesting cases in the draft when it comes to this and don't see any super strong arguments either way as far as would/wouldn't get over.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Well that was Iso's pick. I'm going to PM him and see if he has another pick, but more than likely he won't be back on 2+2 until tomorrow.

I absolutely think that Crow Sting would work today if starting up as a fresh new gimmick.

I agree, but I think that's literally the only downside. And that problem can be solved by even semi-competent booking.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

I guess I don't know what longevity rules are here, but I think that's a bigger deal than you make it out to be. Hard to keep a guy fresh for a prolonged period of time while never turning him.

Though I suppose that the rules don't require you to constantly run live shows that cause the overexposure issues that WWE has.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Well if anyone has been paying attention to me here, you know two things about me.

1) I love tag team wrestling

2) I loved NWA/JCP wrestling from the mid 80's

Knowing both of those, I think the obvious pick here is:

The Road Warriors

I don't know what time frame you want to use for this, but I want the Warriors from around '85

Team:

2002 Babyface Rock
1985 Road Warriors

Yeah that's a good pairing. I always think McMahon goes a bit too early since I always hated him actually getting in the ring but there's no denying that he + Austin were great TV

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

I'd say they're kind of essential, McMahon was just the perfect foil for SCSA

I always feel like the people who take mr McMahon early handicap themselves

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Meh this draft is hilariously deep. McMahon has a redicilously high Wins Over Replacement Authority Figure and that's absolutely essential in a SCSA promotion.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Yeah trios are okay, but they have to be a team like the Freebirds, they can't be a stable like the NWO. Don't worry about it if you can't edit, just pick someone else.
