Held the tag titles with UNNAMED in the WWF when Flair was still in Georgia, so he had legitimate success without the Horseman gimmick. One of my favorite wrestlers ever.

+1 to all that. WTF number 12 overall for this boring chump? Fail fail and fail.

I think the crowd is falling asleep.

he can, that's why he should've been the 12th pick in the 4th rd, not the 1st.

But, he has a vision, as fun as it is to judge now, we have to let it all play out.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I'm starting to think outside the box again with the fifth pick. Given how well it worked with the third pick, Wrane may want to put me on ignore or send Guido to my house.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

His strategy is to draft the people with the largest difference between wrestling ability and drawing power

he was the guy I had at the top of my board 1.5 rounds ago. Great wrestler when he was younger, very versatile.

It's a good idea to assume I'm being sarcastic when I end a sentence with an ellipsis.

I think my promotion has enough great mic guys that Malenko's weaknesses won't be an issue, obviously.

EDIT: Woah wtf, how am I up again already. Will pick soon.

I didn't have a (big) problem with you taking Malenko where you did. If he had gone 12th ... well, you see? :-D

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I was looking at Malenko as well but, like a lot of guys, I thought he'd drop further.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Alright, everyone is going to hate this pick but I don't pick again in forever and want him really badly. It's a definite homer/mark pick.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Eh, I don't hate it but I think there are better all-around guys still out. Then again, I know what it is to be a mark for someone (Morrison) and if you love a guy that much, I get it.
