only potentially missing 2 or 3 spots is NOT getting punished nearly enough for delaying this for a whole day

all the more reason why giving cruzin a few minutes to get his pick in would have been acceptable.

you have to remember that even though they can pick whenever they like, the longer they wait, the more names leave the board.

so now, when they make the 78th overall pick, it'll be not after 77 names are gone, but after 83-90 names are gone.

this is still a punishment.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Douglass never really did too well when he didn't have Heyman booking for him, but was a guy that I generally liked


I'm surprised and not surprised that Valentine went here. I had a feeling that he may get overlooked and deezy and I would be able to snap him up in the 5th or 6th round. Quality wrestler that would work really good and stiff matches. IMO he's the perfect heel to have to help a young, up and coming Face break through to that next level

Lyger, well, I'm a massive mark for lyger so, yea, I ruv him a rot. More to it, everyone owes it to themselves to watch his matches from the 94 and 95 Super J Cups. There are some familiar faces in those J Cup matches and Lyger busted out some great stuff. One thing that should also be noted with him, he was the highest % vote getter for the WON HoF until Kobashi was eligible. Lyger got 96% of the vote and Kobashi got 98%, so yea, that shows you how respected Lyger is across teh world


I like Morrison a lot here, and I was thinking about him as he's the kind of guy that you could build up for a few years before giving him that big ME push, and since we're looking at a generally long arc, he can add a lot of value as he improves

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

OK, I'm here now. Just woke up after sleeping for 11 hours or so. I'm just checking to see who picked after me and then I'll be in with a pick. Looks like all the people I really wanted went before me and not after me though so I guess missing my 8 hour window wasn't too bad.

The hilarious thing is that I'm 99% sure Curt was the heel in this feud. Apparently, the geniuses at WCW thought that wrestling fans in the South would hate a wrestler who loves country music and NASCAR and hates rap.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I'm very torn about deciding on the eligibility of the guy Russ wants to draft. I think I'm going to leave it up to a vote.

Russ, post the pick.

I'd probably vote ineligible, but if you guys who know more about him than me disagree, I'll allow it.
