Best Turns of All Time - Draft Interest Thread

A great face or heel turn is one of the most satisfying experiences in wrestling. We've done drafts about most things in wrestling, but it seems like face and heel turns provide for a deep enough field to enable a draft if we still have enough active, interested participants to draft anymore.

My tentative criteria for a great turn would be:
1. How well the actual turn was specifically executed;
2. How well the turn got over in the long run; and
3. If applicable, how good the post-turn segment was.

The "if applicable" idea with #3 is that some turns occur over several segments without any specific "oh he's a heel now" moment, and thus really aren't given a post-turn segment to explain them.

This is not commissioner dicta yet, but my idea for criteria purposes is that face turns should be considered to innately have 1.5x value compared to the even-money value of heel turns. To me there can be little question that heel turns tend to be more popular among smarky fans like those on this board, so a multiplier on face turns could even things up a bit and cause face turns to show up a little more. I welcome thoughts on this.

Interested. This is a great idea for a draft.

Re: Best Turns of All Time - Draft Interest Thread

Seems like we could do this with eight (which is the number I was looking for when I started the thread, though a higher number would have served as a pleasant surprise). If everyone expressing an interest so far can be treated as a firm "in," we're halfway there.

Still in, but if this starts relatively soon I may need a replacement. Just got home from a great vacation with the family at Disney World to a flooded den. Will probably not be available for a couple days.

I'd take a co-owner too if more wanted to participate. Ideally someone more familiar with WCW than I am.

Re: Best Turns of All Time - Draft Interest Thread

Would prefer to get at least one more in, possibly two if Poncha is unavailable right now.

Threads like this are really supposed to lure moorobot back out of retirement.

I didn’t think I would be able to enter because of work, but I’m home sick with the flu all weekend, so I’m in.

Yeah I'm in. I saw earlier eyebooger wouldn't mind a co owner so if you happen to get one more interested between now and the start, I can team up with him. Either way I should be good to go

Re: Best Turns of All Time - Draft Interest Thread

Probably won’t get around to firing this up until tomorrow. Since this did fill slowly: if anyone on the list is unavailable, preferably say so before I have the chance to rand.
