Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Me and Lurchy were discussing the Russo pick, and came to the conclusion he's a bad pick by himself. Without Vince, he had no one to filter his ideas, thus we got an awful WCW under his reign.

i suppose the easiest way to score is 21 pts for 1st, 20 pts for 2nd, down to 1 pt for 21st (although this can be altered to weight higher rankings higher, something like 30-27-25-23-21-19-17-15-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1), and most points wins... an internet?

I'm not even sure that this kind of point scoring is neccessary. I think the judges should more give general observations about feds like worst pick, best pick, overall feel for the feds etc and if the feds make sense. Everyone is going for a different style, so I'm not even sure there is an outright winner

Uh ... I remember Adams being a babyface down south and sorta a poor man's Shawn Michaels. If he won a heel of the year honor, even better!

Oh OK, he was a big-time face later than that, like in the late 80s/early 90s.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

If you don't mind an unknown lurker giving his opinions on this draft, I'll gladly share my thoughts and give out grades/points/etc. I've followed it from the start and have had several agreements/disagreements with decisions made, though decided not to voice them since I'm unknown around here and I didn't think I could present a good argument without mentioning undrafted guys. I know at least one person who posted in this thread (though he's not in the draft) through another site and he could vouch for my wrestling knowledge.

I can proudly say I've recognized every single pick made, and I've been watching wrestling since I was a little kid, mostly WWF/E, WCW, ECW, and TNA, though I've watched notable matches/clips from NWA, ROH, Mexico, Japan, pre-WWF regional feds, and Indy feds, so I think I could give some good writeups, although they will be very brutally honest opinions.

Sounds good. Have any general thoughts on the draft?

Chris Adams entered World Class Championship Wrestling as a face. He teamed up with the Von Erichs regularly. He quickly entreed a feud with Jimmy Garvin and won WCCW's top singles championship.

When the top heels of WCCW left (Garvin and Freebirds), Adams did a heel turn and had a long-running feud with Kevin Von Erich. During this time, he teamed with Gino Hernandez.

This was the big finale to that feud- a hair vs. hair.

Chris Adams and Gino Hernandez (the Dynamic Duo) vs. Kerry and Kevin Von Erich, Part 1

It has a great ending, including an early appearance of Chris Von Erich.

Generally a few people were waaaaay too undervalued and I'll be sure to note that in my reviews. There was a guy taken in the 2nd round who I would almost certainly peg as a top 5 pick, for instance. Overall it was surprising to see some lifetime mid-carders taken before people who had main evented occasionally, and there's even a few undrafteds that I think should have been taken if only because they were main eventers for awhile. Also tag team wrestlers/women/announcers/managers/promoters were almost always reaches in this draft, though there were some good timing picks. You can tell looking at some of the rosters that people were going in a certain direction, though I'm not sure if that direction was best for making a "successful" promotion with longevity. I'll expand on all this of course, but there were generally a lot of reaches.

I'm fine with you being specific. We could use a little sparked discussion at this point. I don't think anyone's going to be offended by your opinions, people still have to do their final write-ups which should affect everyone's judgment. I'll give my worst/best values in the next day or two.

It is the punchline of the thread so far... although a couple of these rosters...

I'll wait until the end though.
