I think there is enough validly as a knock on him that his best work was in Japan. When you factor in that his big entrance to the WWF was basically a fail, it certainly says that he doesn't have star power. It obviously doesn't say anything about in working, but that isn't everything.

this would honestly count as one of teh worst ideas that vince has ever had. Dr Death had a torn hamstring going into the stupid fight against Bart Gunn IIRC. All that did was kill a push before it even started

Yeah I just watched a really good interview of Cornette really ripping McMahon and Russo for this idea. He said Dr. Death was going to get a title push if he won and instead ruined his career. He said it cost them millions in potential ppv sales.

Yep, I remember that well. It was set up for Dr. Death to win that tourney and then Bart Gunn ruined it then got killed by Butterbean.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

can someone just give me a quick explanation how a winner is decided....will you have a panel vote on who has the best federation? Seems like you guys are talking about pairing people together for matches and i thought i saw this is extrapolated to 30 years. Just a quick cliff please kthnx.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I believe at the end of the draft we'll round up some judges to rank each roster. Some people started to do this about 2 rounds ago but it was kinda pointless at the time.

My idea is we vote, but split the rosters into group of 2/3/4 and make it a tourney.

Also I could listen to Jim Cornette shoot interviews all day long. And I probably will today. God the BFA was sooooo bad.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I like the system we had for the NCAA basketball draft. Tournament style. Voting takes place then we use the percentages to pick each winner. So if someone gets 75% of the vote, you generate a random number and if it's between 1-75 (out of 100), that person wins. Keeps the voting relevant but decreases potential bias.

Great pick with Barry Windham. It was either him or Simmons for me

I could have sworn Windham got picked. Oops.

Surprised the Sensational Sherri pick got such a tepid reaction. I thought that pick was pretty genius tbh.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Windham IMO was CLEARLY the BPA at that spot. In fact, had Wrane and I gotten Windham he would have been our No. 3 wrestler (IMO). Kinda upset I didn't suggest taking him sooner.

This is very solid, though no super big face is a bit meh.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I mean, here's the list of guys Flair featured in his DVD a handful of years ago:

Race
Dusty
Windham
Steamboat
Funk
Sting

(The other main segment was the 1992 Rumble.)

I mean, damn.

Windham was a pretty good babyface much of his career.

That was before my time. I actually don't really know much about him. I briefly remember him as the widowmaker.

jack brisco would be the main face. We'll be packaging him as the "All-American". Kingston would be the one down the road, and Windham was a top level face from about 84-92ish
