I'm sure I'm gonna be told he couldn't get over today but I'm not having it. Dude had tons of charisma and intensity and a great gimmick. I actually think monster face gimmicks like this are part of what's missing today, instead we get all the faces telling lame jokes. He's faced Hollywood Hogan before and it didn't go so well but he was past his prime and the booking was terrible. I believe that his lack of longevity, bad attitude and the fact that he kept walking out don't apply here.

Give me the Ultimate Warrior.

...although maybe I shouldn't talk, because my next pick will probably be a facemelter for many of you.

Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Warrior wasn't a guy I was thinking about at all but I agree he could still get over today and think the format helps him quite a bit. Good pick.

If mflip hurries, I'm around for ~10 minutes. Will be gone for about 1.5 hours after that.

I must admit it's pretty hilarious that in a 'build the best company for 2017' draft my first two picks are Hogan and Warrior.

Done, thanks.

If someone could PM the next person in line too, that would be great.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

With my 2nd pick I'm taking someone who has gotten over the same way Daniel Bryan did in this current wrestling world. By being...

Spoiler:


The reason I asked for clarification is that this gimmick runs across two companies. The AJ leader of the Bullet Club is the same gimmick he's using today. So I'm picking AJ's 2014-Present run.

With this pick I get a leader of the most popular faction in the world who is going to put on phenomenal matches with my first round pick.

Current roster
Daniel Bryan
A.J. Styles

Son of a *****. I was drafting BC AJ. Time to reevaluate.

That’s not a problem with this guy.

A dependable worker and a spectacular heat magnet. Also, he’s awesome.

I’m taking The Miz (2010-present).



Yeah, really.

Hate it if you want. IDGAF.

A man after my own heart.

Your Warrior pick seems okay to me. As I think about it, it feels a little early, but I wouldn't have really thought twice about it if you had just boldly put the pick over with some obnoxious GOATBERG-style gloating.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

That Miz video is still one of the all-time greats. Not sure I've seen it since it first aired.

I don't hate the pick, though it seems to lack the versatility of being able to turn face without losing all value.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Miz pick is fineish. He's an actual heel that will actually do what heels are supposed to. Those will be hard to come by.

Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

Yeah Miz has been fantastic in his recent title run but he's been a big meh to me outside that since I started semi-watching again (which was after The Shoot and after his debut which from what I understand is great so I'm probably undervaluing him a bit). Seems like a late 3rd-early 5th rounder to me without thinking about it too much.

Re: Build the Best Wrestling Company for 2017 Draft

I don't think picking 2017s best heel is a bad idea in a draft to create the best promotion for 2017

I have iso's pick and obviously mine, so we can go on a little pick run once riddle777 makes his.
