You can draft any wrestler that wrestled for a major organization within the United States. This will be a very loose rule and hopefully you guys just stay within the spirit of the draft while making a selection.
wtf? How is a guy that's primarily worked in the US not eligible? Sigh. How is ROH out wtf? I'm glad Aries did some work in TNA as that wasn't at all my basis for drafting him. He did sign and appear on RAW FWIW. I'd much rather have Claudio, than my replacement pick, this guy:

Replacement pick is:

He was, they released him, he'll probably be back in the next few years.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

railbird opinion: if Danielson is allowed based on his current wwe signing and one velocity appearance, then Claudio should be allowed based on his prior wwe contract and one time raw appearance

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Kevin Sullivan is a good pick this late, he also did a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff.

There's a couple guys in my head I'm surprised have not gone yet.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I would be allowing all North American indy guys (ROH or not) in this, but, I'm not the boss.

I am a MASSIVE Lita mark. She's just a notch below Trish IMO.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I thought for sure Assani would take Sullivan since he is perfect for his roster

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I would have allowed the Claudio pick since idc at this point, but I figured it wouldn't have been fair to dnkyhunter who would have been picking guys we've never heard of from the ROH for the past seven rounds if he could have .

North American? Holy smokes, the debates that would ensue with classic luchadores like El Santo and Blue Demon in regards to popularity... Heck, under these rules you can make a case for El Santo as a first round pick.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

OK, maybe just American indy guys.

Hell, as it is, I had to drop my co-GM status because I can't think of 20 more guys (I would want to draft), let alone 50.

I have to be honest that my only experience with Sullivan is with the Dungeon of Doom... but god do I think he sucks.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Sullivan and Benoit had one hell of a brawl in 1996 or so ... after Benoit legit "stole" Sullivan's wife.
