I don't think I'm going to ever change it. Over the years it's become more and more ridiculous, that now it's too funny to change.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft


I have sent AlfPacino a PM letting him know he is up first. It will help the draft go quicker if you message the person who goes after you when you're done making your pick. I'm going to try it without a clock, but I'll use my judgment if someone is taking too long. I'll send them a message and post in this thread letting them know they have 2 hours before they'll be skipped. Remember a big part of what makes these drafts fun is the writeup, so don't just post the name of who you picked. If someone could make a spreadsheet so we can keep track of who's been picked that would be great!

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Could you clarify the rules please? How much of a factor is longevity?

None. You get to pick a specific gimmick or period for a wrestler and project it for an entire career.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

So gimmick a that lasted 3 months is = to gimmick b that lasted 30 years ? It's up to us to project it?

Also what about guys who clearly ripped off other gimmicks ?

Yes. It's up to you to make the argument that it would be successful in the present day. If I pick a wrestler, and you pick a wrestler who ripped off my wresterl's gimmick than it is up to you to make the argument off how it would or wouldn't affect him.

The object of the draft is to build the best wrestling company for 2017. You do this by drafting a specific period or gimmick for a wrestler. In you're writeup you should explain why that wrestler would do well today.

I'm assuming you want Owen's with his current gimmick? Or do you want Kevin Owens when he was in NXT? Also you can draft any wrestler in history, it doesn't just have to be wrestlers who are wrestling today.

We could probably do with an arbitrator to deal with any close calls (LKJ obv).

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Stone Cold during his run was obviously great, but there's actually someone else who I feel would be a bigger draw today.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Just for thread readability purposes, if people could at least put their picks in bold or something with a little mini write-up it would help with any confusion
