WBM All-time Match Draft

Between this and the greatest matches tournament, I'm the OP of a very disproportionate number of threads on the front of this forum.

Welcome everyone to the WBM All-time Match Draft. Signups and entries were done in this thread and are now closed. This thread will contain the actual proceedings.

Here is the link to track the draft:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...nFUZFJBTHNIWmc

Rules:

1. You can draft from any pro wrestling match ever, provided that you can supply us with a verifiable length of time that the match went on.

2. There isn't a set number of matches; there is a time limit that you must fill out. That maximum time limit is 2 hours, 0 minutes, and 0 seconds. You cannot go over that. Your card must fill at least 1 hour, 45 minutes. Once you hit the 1:45 mark, you can declare your card finished at any point before you hit 2 hours. You will be lifted out of the draft at that point and the remaining people will continue drafting until everyone is done. There is no minimum or maximum length of any individual match on your card. Want to throw in a Royal Rumble? Go ahead. Want to have 20 5-minute matches? That's your call.

3. Time is calculated bell-to-bell. If you, for instance, want to draft a match from WrestleMania IX, then you might be stupid. But in any case follow that Wikipedia link, scroll down a bit, and you can see match times for each match. If you're pulling one off of a TV broadcast, then you'll probably have to manually get the information for it from a YouTube link and just count the time elapsed from bell-to-bell. Again, if you can't come up with a length for the match, you simply can't pick it.

4. Entrances and post-match stuff don't count against your time. A match with an awesome pre-match or post-match promo, or beatdown, or heel turn, or whatever...that just enhances that match's value, compared to some great matches that won't get any kind of rub from something like that.

5. A worker cannot pull double (or triple or more) duty on your card unless he did so on that night in real life...and even then, the double duty has to be both of those same matches. I say "worker" instead of "wrestler" just to be clear that you can't trot out the same dude in different gimmicks for different matches. If Stunning Steve Austin is on your card, then Stone Cold Steve Austin is not. Slight exception to this rule: you can have a worker pull double duty in a battle royale (including the Royal Rumble) and another match, as long as their total in-ring time between the two does not exceed 75 minutes.

6. The same title cannot be defended twice on your card, unless again you're taking both specific matches in which the title was defended that night.
To be clear...
WWF Title = WWE Title = Undisputed Title
WCW World Title, NWA World Title, and WWE World Heavyweight Title are all different from each other despite all utilizing the big gold belt.
Obviously you can branch out and take other world titles, but you may only have two world title matches at a maximum on your card. There are no other title match limitations as long as the titles are unique from each other.
The WWE US Title, WCW US Title, NWA US Title...that's all the same title. The history is unbroken. If in doubt about whether a title counts as the same or not, ask me.

7. Once the draft officially begins (not until at least Wednesday), drafters will get a six hour window in which to pick. Midnight EST through 8 a.m. EST will be a dead zone in which the clock won't run on whoever is up. If the clock runs out on you, you'll be skipped and will furthermore be in auto-skip mode until you return and catch up on your picks. If you have a partner, please confer with them in advance about what you might take so that you can act in a timely fashion. If you won't be around for your pick, please PM someone who can post your pick for you when the time comes.

Here is the preferred format to draft in:

With the 13th pick, I select...



Spoiler:


Please do YouTube links instead of embedding into the thread. It really messes with the loading time of a page if too many embeds slip in. Link + pic is way better.

Re: WBM All-time Match Draft

I actually am really happy with the last pick, it should work perfect with the card I'm trying to build.

Re: WBM All-time Match Draft

Yeah no complaints from me about #13 either. I wouldn't even know what the hell to do with the first pick, to be honest.

Did you want in? You never posted in the sign-up thread. I bet somebody would take you on as a teammate.

Re: WBM All-time Match Draft

It's a bitch to build a draft board for something this expansive, that's for damn sure. Another reason I'm glad to be at #13.

Re: WBM All-time Match Draft

You didn't answer my question from the other thread. Is it matches only or could someone pick undrafted hatching from an egg and dancing for twenty minutes if they want?

Also we should probably wait until the other draft is over, but whatever.

One more thing... not that anyone will pick one, but is WWECW classed as a world title?

Ehhh...

Yeah a person can draft a segment if they want to if it isn't directly related to another match. Otherwise that segment is just tied in with a match.

I would hope that it should be over within a few days, in time for the start of this one, but people have slowed down considerably during the weekend. And by people I mean EMc. But tomorrow being a Monday should bring everyone into the forum and I'm hoping the remainder of that draft might suddenly zip on through. I've been trying to set it up so that we wait on that one, that's why I keep saying "at least Wednesday," but we'll see how things go.

Yeah, that's an unbroken chain back to the days that it was the ECW World Title, so that's all the same title. Anyone who isn't doing a joke card will only possibly go get the older stuff that was actually part of the real ECW though.

Re: WBM All-time Match Draft

Ok cool. I'm not gonna troll btw, I just used the Gooker segment as an example since obviously no one is gonna pick it. Some segments may be worth drafting though.

Also shouldn't we kill the WBM acronym now that B and M have been future endeavored?

Re: WBM All-time Match Draft

With the lowered timelimit I almost regret not being in. But it will be fun to see what everyone else likes.

If you got 2 matches that relies on homecrowd reaction in different cities, you assume both matches will have the same reaction on you draft card?

If a worker did two matches in one day, ie not the same ppv, are both pickable?

That 6 hour time limit makes it likely I'll be skipped a few times due to time zones. I'll be sleeping from about 6pm est. Given we got nearly 100 drafts in the other in a week it seems unnecessarily short to me, but whatever, I can live with being skipped due to huge match pool to draw from.

I mean if the forum got a new nickname then I'll happily sign off on it, but I thought WBM was catchy. BP no longer stands for British Petroleum; it isn't an abbreviation of anything at all. Same concept.

(In other words I just really find the concept of a short set of initials to be catchy.)
