We're drafting careers, not primes. Do I only get Finlay for 10 of his 30 since only 10 of them were in the US?

For lengevity - they're both coming up around a decade of in-ring time right about now and are young enough that I figure I can just assume 20 yrs
kendrick is wrestling for dgusa, and london is trying acting. so dont count on those 20 years.

i am a huge fan of these guys.

Vince has made plenty of dumbass mistakes with guys who should've been sure fire stars if his own ego didn't get in the way. And Vince has pushed plenty of guys who weren't good and gave them ******ed gimmicks. There is a world of wrestling outside of what Vince has done, it'd be well worth checking it out

Your roster isn't all that good, and its quite hard to turn chicken **** into chicken salad

^this. My only problem with how homicide has done the cop killa is that it is miles more dangerous then how Shane/Greg Helms did the vertebreaker

All wrestlers will be entering the beginning of their prime, no matter what era they were from. If they were popular in 1972, it is assumed that they will be just as popular now. The same goes with strength and ability.
You don't get Mickie James as she is now (or even when she debuted) being the same as Mickie James when she was wrestling in Podunk Nowhere behind the Steak n Shake.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Write up time for my 7th rounders




I'm not sure what you guys opinions were of Konnan/K-Dogg in WCW, but mine fluctuated between loving him when he was a member of the Wolfpack, and then slowly beginning to hate him as he came out every night and did the same promos over and over, and them showing his horrible rap videos every week on Nitro for several months. It always seemed like he got pretty solid pops though. However, he was absolute $$$$$ in TNA as the leader/mouthpiece of LAX imo, and with my previous selections of Homicide and Hernandez, drafting Konnan to lead my bad-ass LAX stable was an easy decision for me. Interesting tidbit about Konnan taken from Wikipedia: In his autobiography, Bret "The Hitman" Hart gave credit to Konnan for teaching him how to use his move, the Sharpshooter.

1 time WCW United States Champion
2 time WCW tag team champion
1 time WCW TV champion
2 time TNA Tag champion




Me and my friends always liked D-Lo Brown in the WWF, even though it seemed like he never was as popular with the fans as I would have thought he should of been (though at his peak he got some pretty nice pops IIRC) The sky-high was a pretty sick finishing move, and his head wagging celebration was always cool to me. I have some plans for him depending on how the rest of the draft shakes out, but right now, this is basically just a homer pick, and I'm not really sure which direction I want to take him just yet.

4 time WWf European Champion
1 time WWF Tag team Champion


My current roster:

HHH
Razor Ramon/Scott Hall
Christian Cage
Kane
Paul Heyman
LAX (Homicide, Hernandez, Konnan)
D-Lo Brown

Care to give examples about which guys on my roster have a ******ed gimmick and don't draw money?

Foley wrote in his book that 2 Cold is a "genitalactic freak of nature" so that has to count for something ...

My draft board is getting ridiculously thin. I may not have enough names for the last 3-4 picks.

Love Joey Styles, I hated how Vince turned him into a pathetic shadow of his former self when he was doing the new "ECW"
