I hope I'm using this term right since I've seen it used but have no idea what it means.

I clicked the youtube with my eyes closed and marked out big time.

Even if you can't trade him, I'm pretty sure there are a ton of guys who can do well teaming up with Hawk.

Posturing on both sides, imo.


Seriously, I'm annoyed I missed my guy in this round. I had Hawk targeted for my 5th round pick since early in the draft.

That's actually funny because I was more than willing to pass... just didn't see the PM till it was too late.

Hawk was the one who yelled "What a Rush", which is important imo. He was also ranked higher on the PWI "Top 500 of the PWI era". I might take him btw.

Eh, that's not in the same class as Shawn overselling Hulk's big boot.

Anyway, I really had to rush the writeup on Sandman since i was afraid that someone else could pick him ahead of me if I did a full one so I'm going to do a little better one on this pick. I think it's a huge face-melter and one that I actually probably like better than Sandman if it wasn't for the fact that I felt like I really needed another main eventer in the 4th round just to make the feud possibilities work out at the top.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Trish is certainly the best female pick, she's fine value.

WRT to other picks
John Morrison is a great pick, awesome on the mic as a heel or face, great body, great in ring ability he should be one of the top guys pretty soon.

Shelton Benjamin is also fine, he's been horribly misused and is certainly one of the best in ring worker in the WWE right now. If Vince pushed him he could be great.

Big Show is incredible value, almost the steal of the draft. Smarks might not like him, but you really underestimate the drawing power of someone that big. He has been a top guy for over 10 years and has had almost no problems outside of the ring. He is frequently on major news networks representing the WWE, because he's well spoken and makes the company look good to the general public. He wasn't just picked to fight Mayweather at wrestlemania because he's big, he was picked because that match would get the most media attention and Vince trusted him to handle it well. Hating on that pick is crazy.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Have to say I actually really like the Trish pick here. Initially I thought this draft didn't have sufficent rounds to consider the women until very late on, but I've changed my mind. I think you nailed it in the writeup about her ability to work it both in and out of the ring. She's been involved in some of the best womens feuds of all time, if not THE best with UNDRAFTED, is a more than competent wrestler, has had some very memorable diva moments, is massively over with the fans and will sell a ton of merchandise.

Trish made womens wrestling watchable and is the clear #1 imo.
