Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

https://youtu.be/cIMvlrvnxAk

The goal of this draft would be to build the best wrestling company for 2017. Wrestlers who may have gotten over in the past, may have a tough time getting over in 2017, so this distinction will make certain wrestlers go much or earlier or much later than they have in previous drafts. Society has changed so much, so the challenge is drafting wrestlers with the right gimmick to be over in 2017. You have to draft a specific period or gimmick of a wrestler, and others can draft the same wrestler for a different period or gimmick as long as it's different enough from the previous incarnation. An example that would be okay is for someone to draft Raper Cena, and someone else to draft Baby Face Super Cena. It would not be okay for someone to draft The Rock in 2000, and then someone else draft 2001 Rock, because there isn't a big enough difference between the characters. If you're going to draft a wrestler who's already been drafted, make sure you're able to argue how the character is different. I would like to have 10-15 people enter this but I'm open to more if there's a lot of interest, and because it's so deep I think a normal snake draft is fine.

In so far:

I think since we're drafting specific gimmicks of wrestlers, as long as they are an established team, it's okay to draft them as a team.

Only if they were specifically tag team wrestlers. Freebirds and New Day would be okay to draft as a team, Evolution, Shield, and NWO would not.

Raper Cena sounds a little too edgy for the PG era.

(think I'll just rail this one)

This puts us at 10. I'll wait until the start of SmackDown tomorrow to see if anyone else wants to join, then I'll randomize the order and get this draft started!

Cool, sounds good. And if anyone wants to co-run this with me that'd be great. I should be around for the most part, but from time to time I'll be out.

Dylan,
I'm getting the feeling that your location isn't going to pan out.
