Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Eh, singles >>> tag teams imo.

+ I feel like people weren't loving the Bushwhackers when I took the first guy. And, as someone pointed out to me, you actually only get the comedy jobber Bushwhackers with those two, cause the crazy violent hardcore Sheepherders were with a third guy.

I guess the best deal would have been to take Gibson and ship him the whacker for Morton, but whatever. I feel like I get some interesting matchups out this, can do a new v. old rockers feud and let someone else get to the top of the card for awhile with HBK occupied. That and Hammer + Muraco would be a SICK heel team if I stuck them together.

I feel like you can always stick a couple singles guys together and get a sick team (Angle+Benoit, RocknSock, Two Man Power Trip, JeriShow, hell even the Acolytes) if you want to get a tag feud going, and that having top card singles draws is more important overall.
Also just imagine the team of Janetty + Disco. Blows my mind

now this is why this is a great draft.

I completely see all those points. I didn't see the value in Marty and Greg that you saw, I pretty much just saw Cruizin' getting bailed out of some weird decisions. Nice work sir.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I gotta be honest, I always hated the Flair flop.

Although the one at the end is great (that whole promo after winning the IC title is great).

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Don't feel like researching at this point so I'll round out my roster with a couple people I randomly like.

Pick 312

Vickie Guerrero

Vickie kind of treads the line between heel heat and X-Pac heat, but I personally think she's great at pissing off the crowd. She'll be a good on screen GM character for my promotion, and likely the target of many Rock one liners and insults.

Pick 313

Muhammad Hassan

Fans hated the **** out of this guy during his short stint with WWE. Ended up quitting the biz after WWE ran a terrorist angle the same day as the London bombings and he became the target of tons of media scrutiny. I'll probably avoid doing that in my promotion, and hopefully get a few more years out of him.

I'm happy to get two heat magnets right at the end of the draft imo.

Final Promotion:
The Rock
Owen Hart
Christopher Daniels
Dean Malenko
Shelton Benjamin
"Dr. Death" Steve Williams
"Sensational" Sherri Martel
Petey Williams
2 Cold Scorpio
Super Crazy
Charlie Haas
Gorgeous George
Art Barr
Vickie Guerrero
Muhammad Hassan

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I think your promotion is seriously lacking a credible threat to The Rock. Lots of great wrestlers, but no one on his level.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Yeah, I'm not sure if anyone that caliber was really there at the end of round two. I think I'll be able to build guys up pretty well though, people like Daniels and Shelton definitely have the ability.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Great job with the draft, this went real fast


I do have to say, how did Pat Patterson and Ray Stevens not get picked?

yes, I blame myself partly, but deezy and I wanted more balance with face/heels and more cruiserweight guys.

These two guys drew great in various territories and in big money federations for a good amount of time. Patterson was huge in the W/WWF too for a while before retiring from the ring

Very surprised that this major-title holder did not get picked:
