I don't get it. He was never a star, and only lasted 3 years in the WWE, before injuries derailed him. He's almost certainly the worst pick in this draft.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Would love the Nowinski pick on whoever's roster that had JBL, they could be a great team together. Dnky's roster certainly has a lot of guys good on the mic, so that's a plus.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Are we going to have any official universal format for judging or can I just go ahead and do it however the hell I want as long as I end up with the teams ranked 1-21? I'd like to start on it soon just because it's going to take awhile!

im pretty sure that he is currently doing his work in the study of brain injuries. so that is a bit longer than 3 years.

also, it was my last pick. it was 1,000% better than dink. thanks for playing.

haters gonna hate my first and my last pick.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

If you're going to pick someone for medical reasons, wouldn't Dr. James Andrews be a better pick?

(Or the Doctor who gave steroids to the WWE, if you want to be cynical).

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

There's this new fad called the Internet, it's pretty useful when researching things like the evolution of brain injury research. Picking someone who happens to know about that sort of stuff is a waste of a pick, really.

People in the NBA drafts always jokingly talked about drafting the Phoenix Suns training staff. This is the equivalent of actually doing it.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I wasn't watching during that timeframe but according to his Wiki page, Nowinski was in the WWE for 1 year and retired due to concussion symptoms. So you get him for 1 year.

Still better than Dink though.

But you could have gotten someone who legitimately was a headliner, like Ray "The Crippler" Stevens (to pick a name pseudo-randomly).

You guys should make a separate thread where each of you gets 3 posts to make your case. Then the judges (i said i can be one) can vote or decide
