Ohtani/Benoit was such an awesome match:

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

How can we view the current makeup of all the teams? I don't see how to do it with the spreadsheet on page 1.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

It's been 12 hours since the Doink/Dink picks. Cruizn did you PM Iggy?

Regardless, he's skipped so mwj and I are up...

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

mjw and I are taking The Nasty Boys



I have no idea how they fell this far. They really aren't any less valuable than teams like Demolition that were snap-picked the second we hit the double rounds. If we ran this draft again, I'm not even sure these guys don't go in the sixth/seventh round. It's a huge steal considering some of the no-name jobbers that have been taken recently.

Nasty Boys were probably going to be my pick. Nice job.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Yeah, didn't get a PM or realize it was my pick. I'll go now though. I'm actually kinda stuck though as there are 3 people I really, really want.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

OK, the first pick's too much value to pass up. I wasn't planning on him earlier or I would have taken him in the 9th over Justin Credible, but his value to my federation is going to be immense.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

So our final roster, barring changes is:

Sting
Jerry Lawler
Jeff Hardy
Scott Steiner
Ultimo Dragon
Gorilla Monsoon
Tito Santana
Rikishi
Marc Mero
Kamala
Nikolai Volkoff
Koko B. Ware
Brian Adams
Brian Knobbs
Jerry Saggs

I think it's a great mix of everything. Tons of longevity. Sting/Lawler is a good face/heel feud to headline. Monsoon and Lawler give us a great booth. Rikishi/Kamala could be a great feud. Ultimo Dragon, Jeff Hardy, and Koko give us a high-flying division. And we have a lot of guys that can tag team against the Nasty Boys. Steiner/Hardy vs. Nasty Boys seems like a good possibility. Steiner, Hardy, Tito, Volkoff, and Brian Adams all have major tag team experience. All in all, we're both pretty thrilled with how our federation turned out.

Damn, I could take Elizabeth too. That would be sick. God I wish I had two more picks right now.

I don't think anyone has a roster as established as this one. You guys might be able to put on slightly better matches, but everyone of our guys can handle themselves in the ring and they're all complete pros. I feel very confident that if we presented this thread to a guy like Vince McMahon or Jim Cornette, that they'd both really love this stable.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

It feels dirty taking another woman over Elizabeth, especially one that was nowhere remotely in her stratosphere popularity-wise, but she's a way better fit with my fed than Elizabeth. I don't know who I could pair any kind of pure valet with, let alone one that just plays the innocent princess type character from the 80s. I guess I'll just go with my other choice and forget about the women altogether:

Thanks for the heads up. I will take Elizabeth instead of Godfather.



Does anyone mind if I drop One Man Gang and take someone else? He was kind of a package deal with Godfather.

I think my roster could have been better I started going one way and ended another because I didnt understand the dynamics of the draft

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

You really think Beer Money is bigger than America's Most Wanted? How? They've never been at the top of the card and the didn't have anywhere near as long with the tag titles or as many intense feuds. Really, outside of a couple hyped matches with the Dudleys, they haven't done much. I mean, not that I don't like the tag team, but it seems like Storm still has to be way more connected with AMW than with Beer Money.

i agree with all of the above.

i just like the combination of storm and UNDRAFTED over storm and harris.

harris' recent very brief WWE run soured me on him.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Do we still want to have this judged? Are there people lurking that want to judge? I figure, if people want to, there's no harm in doing it. It'd be interesting to get one of these things evaluated fully. I'd be interested in hearing a lot of opinions on different rosters.
