dynamite vs morrison. very nice
The match I'd really want to see is Benoit/Dynamite, since Benoit is as close to a Dynamite clone (and grew up wanting to be like him) as it gets. I'd stick Morrison against Orton right now.

Disagree. Unlike most sports awards, these awards would often time go to the same person for many years in a row. For example, Foley won "best brawler" every year from 1991 to 2000. Imo that shows that they're truly trying to give it to the most deserving person and not just the underrated guy who hasn't yet gotten his due.

Never heard of guy #2 so hopefully the write-up is enlightening.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Did Sasaki wrestle enough in North America? He's another guy, like Kobashi, I would have taken a long time ago if I thought he had.

On and off in WCW for five years, according to wiki. Wow, I don't remember him there at all. ... Well, not my call to make.

I'll do a write up tommorrow or tuesday when i have the chance. There's a method to the madness in our last three picks

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

i doubled checked with wiki before conferring with Deezy to put in the pick. When I was tape tradiing, I remember having some nitros with him and seeing him on a decent amount of shows in the 92-98ish years

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I'm pretty certain holding a major championship in a major fed makes him eligible. He was def a us champ he either beat konnan or one man gang for the belt doing this off memory. He was also part of the japanese invasion angle with sonny onoo

Are you allowed to do this? I assumed you only got the U.S. versions of Sasaki.

WON gave Hogan plenty of positive awards. People trying to discredit Meltzer are LOL.

I would think so too, otherwise Muta would've gone bottom 1st rd, maybe higher.
