Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

I can't do much of a write up right now, but to keep it moving I'll make my picks.

First I'll take Hulk Hogan vs The Dungeon of Doom. Jesus Christ, Zodiac was a thing.

Second I'll take the phantom fast count at Starrcade 97.

If my second one doesn't qualify I'll pick another

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

It was a plot point, and you're picking the plot point rather than the match really. It seems fine. Also a good choice IMO.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Also I was going to take (at some point, probably not immediately) a variation on the Hogan/DoD thing by taking the whole "Alliance to End Hulkamania" angle that would culminate in that Tower of Doom match, which included the Dungeon of Doom.

It also included them bringing in a wrestler and calling him "the Final Solution" until someone brought it to their attention that that was a Hitler term for exterminating the Jews, leading them to change it to "Ultimate Solution" (not to be confused with "Ultimate Surprise," the Renegade).

Anyway, I figure the Hogan/DoD feud eats up the Alliance to End Hulkamania stuff, so that's why I'm posting about a tangential undrafted; seems to me that it's off the table because of that pick.

It's back on True North/DWetzel whenever, by the way.

FWIW Halpert, True North picking means that you'll be back up, so you can pick a second time once he goes.

Yeah, sorry to kill the mood, guys.

I have literally never heard of that match, but the gif is 100% gold.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

You could probably make a credible full draft from "dumb **** New Jack did", at the risk of giving potential undrafteds away

Yea that pick may only be the 2nd or 3rd most famous time New Jack tried to kill someone during a match.

Wow, I'd never heard of that match before. Amazing that that isn't brought up on the Starrcade 2000 TLF episode considering they go week-by-week on memorably awful moments. I watched Hogan's promo and I just can't get over him being back in yellow and red. Just gtfo, Hogan. That promo also makes me realize how weird wrestling is sometimes.

The "Yeah but you can still kick out" call sums up WCW 2000 perfectly. Such an amazing call.

Question regarding the San Francisco match. I wrote about that being the result of the entire Russo as champ fiasco. I don't know if that means DWetzel can still have that or not. I just wanted to make that known

Meh I'm not inclined to invalidate the pick. (It also wasn't DWetzel who picked it FWIW.)

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Looks like that's eight hours since the last pick. Eyebooger is skipped; I'm going to go ahead.

With my eighth pick, I select…

To make things worse (or better), it's really Yavapai, and Hogan botched the pronunciation from the get-go.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Sorry, didn't realize how many were skipped and that it could possibly be my turn.

No big write-up, but I'll take Piggie James.

Apparently LayCool thought that this was the picture of obesity or something:


Terrible angle that none of the performers seemed comfortable with.
