All Scott's later days show is that he has an ability to be both a singles star who focuses more on promo stuff and an in-ring specialist. That sure is a huge burden for a promoter to have to deal with.
reromo stuff

Please do me a favor and go watch his late 80s and early 90s stuff and stop embarrassing yourself.

At the same time, Scott Steiner was being groomed as a singles performer.

Steiner was the first announced to run the gauntlet with his first opponent being Ric Flair. By way of backfiring interference by the Four Horsemen, Steiner beat Flair by pinfall. He would then get a title match against Flair at Clash of the Champions XIV: Dixie Dynamite on January 30, 1991, which ended in a time limit draw. Steiner would go on to win the WCW World Television Championship on September 29, 1992, and began teasing a heel turn, which was aborted upon the Steiner Brothers leaving WCW for the World Wrestling Federation after being lowballed on their contract renewal by then-WCW head Bill Watts.[3][4]

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

i agree, his tag stuff was very good. i remember watching a survivor series in like 93 when i was 8, and enjoying the hell out of it.

but ever since he joined the nWo, he was exposed to be the underperforming wrestler he is.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Or maybe he just played a different role in his later years. I'm sure his complete change in body size doesn't have anything to do with his dramatically different role. The guy played two completely different roles and was popular/prominent in both. I fail to see how that isn't a great piece in this draft.

I'm not sure if I should post this video for fear of 'OMG UNDRAFTEDS', but here goes.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Kinda surprised there wasn't more talk about Liger. Figured a bunch of people would hate on it.

Anyway, everyone needs to watch his match with the Great Sasuke from the 94 J Cup. Probably my favorite match of all time. Botched spot at the end makes it even better because Liger ****ing rules.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

This thread has inspired me to watch wrestling for the first time in 10 years. CM Punk is on right now, and he's really annoying. What kind of gimmick is this straight edge BS?

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Liger's a hell of a wrestler who isn't going to give you much else (promos, star power, etc.). I still think it's a solid pick, though.

Liger does ****ing rule. In Liger vs UNDRAFTED, Liger going crazy when he got his mask ripped off was awesome.

but really, how often does anyone pay attention to cruiser/junior heavyweight promos. They mostly want guys who will go out and entertain in the ring, and if a Cruiser/Junior has the extra charisma, then they will go up the card like they normally do. Lyger can get over in the ring and has an extra level of charisma, but yes, a manager would help in that area

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

if anyone from that #95-102 is looking to move up, let me know. im looking to move up in the 6th.

basically looking for a swap of 5th, 6th, and 9th round picks.

Awesome pick.

EDIT: I'm salivating over that roster.

Very good pick at this point. Mjw was pushing us to take him earlier. I understand why he's a good pick but I just really dislike him and was never a fan. He just seems so incredibly boring.

Does he have to hold up four fingers in every picture he's in? Move on imo.

To be fair, I think a lot of wrestling back in the early 80's and 90's was pretty boring. Arn and the rest of the horsemen were overshadowed by Flair's greatness imo.

Arn Anderson is a steal at this point. Good in the ring, awesome on the mic.

I was just thinking at work about guys I was interested in seeing picked, and this was close to the top of my list. Very nice.
