Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I really like Dreamer and Umaga. Umaga is very underrated in the ring imo.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Solid worker and for all any average WWE fan knows, he's horribly misused.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Dreamer was the guy I would have taken with our last pick over Hurricane, but I knew Wrane wanted Hurricane so I went with it.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Saying MJ has had a "10-year career" is a massive stretch imo. Her "prime" would not really be until she debuted in WWE.

Been enjoying lurking this whole thread. I just have to add that Hurricane/Helms original finisher was amazing and I wish he was allowed to do it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tREl...om=PL&index=40

ROH and TNA don't count? And she debuted in the WWE into a feud with Trish Stratus, that's huge for a female wrestler.

the vertebreaker/cop killa to me is one of the best finishing moves in wrestling. I remember the first time seeing the vertebreaker done by shane helms, and needless to say, I popped huge. I really think that Vince has let a lay up go astray in not letting Shane/Gerg Helms do it as Bischoff had it great with Helms at teh death of WCW. I remember the big entrance that he had and it was probably one of the most over moves in wrestling when at the time

Not really. Like I said, when she debuted it was pretty much the start of her prime, so I'd give her 4 years, 5 if you want to be generous with the ~1 year of TNA work.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

No joke, I was seriously picking London and Kendrick and expecting them to be on nobody's radar.

Time to regroup I guess, will try to get something up soon.
