Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Interesting how the draft has evolved into taking the guys with the best careers to just taking guys you personally like regardless of career.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Just got up. I see I'm on the clock and am looking through my "board".

I'm also trying to make breakfast.

well, we are getting into the 200's now, although the fact that a certain tag team is still undrafted is... remarkable.

There is a heavyweight I can't believe is still on the board.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft




Dynasty Wrestling Federation roster:

1st: Kurt Angle
2nd: Dusty Rhodes
3rd: David Von Erich
4th: Superstar Billy Graham
5th: Terry Gordy
6th: Iron Sheik
6th: Bobby Eaton
7th: Kevin Von Erich
7th: Mil Mascaras
8th: Tiger Mask (Satoru Sayama)
8th: Verne Gagne


Another 80s guy and then a 50s/60s/70s guy. My roster is very old school.

I've now got a 6:5 face:heel ratio and none of my faces are natural choices for heel turns. I don't think. Kevin Von Erich, Mil Mascaras, Tiger Mask, or Verne Gagne ever worked as a heel.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

The face of the AWA is a steal at this point. I simply didn't have an interesting guy to put against him (Bockwinkel vs Gagne is wayyy overdone) so went elsewhere.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

CM Punk went 12th
Warrior went 36th
Verne Gagne went 207th.

As Daniel Negreanu famously once said... REBUY!

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Yeah we had Gagne at the top of our list for a long time, just never felt real comfortable taking him.

yea, he had some big matches against Undrafted at MSG for Vince Sr. They were also revolutionary for the fact that they were placed higher on the card then most jrs had been for New York

I think if this was an overall world draft, Satoru Sayama/Tiger Mask would've been picked much higher. He's probably one of the most influential wrestlers of the past 30 years and has had a massive influence on the world of MMA too in pioneering the work-shoot style and MMA itself

haha. I had considered Gagne, but I already had Brisco, and I can't really see either of them as a heel

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Jack and Jerry Brisco had a great heel run as a tag team shortly before selling their shares of GCW to McMahon.

Gagne went about 170 picks too late.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I have a theoretical question: Who exactly is watching our promotion (live, ppv, television, etc.)? Is it the fans of today or of some other decade?

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft





I choose Eric Young and Ron Killings. Will do a more detailed write-up later as I'm not at my crib right now, but these guys strike me as workers who could be pretty damn good under Paul Heyman's writing/booking
