it's weird that his biggest popularity came when he wasn't saying anything and wasn't having any matches.

One of the best at making you want to order a PPV and then leaving you glad that you did.

I'm not even in the draft dude, I'm just pointing out the flaw in your thinking.

CM Punk may very well be the best "wrestler" available, but it's totally a moot point because nobody else was going to pick him before you picked again. So you could have taken another relatively high value guy in the first round, and combined him with your super badass sleeper pick in the second(CM Punk) and you'd be owning this draft. Instead, you took your badass sleeper pick super early, everyone thinks you suck, and your roster is probably going to be really hard to justify in the end. You may not care, and that's fine, but if you just wanted to create a roster of sleeper dudes nobody else would want, then claim how smart you are, you probably could have done that without entering the draft at all and saved yourself tons of time.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I'm not saying CM Punk isn't going to be a great asset, mostly because I have no idea who he is, but it's a bad pick no matter what because he could have gotten him way later.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I don't know what is so hard to understand about this. There's a couple gimmick guys I'd like to pick up late. Let's say, for argument's sake, I really want the Repo Man on my team. That doesn't make him a good pick in the first round when I can get him in the later rounds.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

God I'm pissed I didn't get in on this. There's just sick hidden value all over this draft.

Also somebody really need to figure out how to tie EWR into this.

I don't see how this could be anything else but a good thing. There is going to be no WWE here, except for maybe Lurchy's team. Everyone else that relied on Vince can only be weakened by not having him and Sting will be able to do what he's been doing for decades.

LOVEEE Sting. Huge reason why I watched WCW was because of him.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Really, it's pretty amazing that Sting became such a huge star without ever being in WWE.
