Well yeah, I mean, that said, I wouldn't have drafted Punk there or maybe at all, but I'll be interested to see who he takes in the subsequent rounds to build around him.

I'm going to bed. Scary_Tiger has our pick(s) and will PM a list to someone if he can't pick tonight.

Bret refused to lose a pretty famous match one time.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Brett was my favorite wrestler for many years. Then I got older and thought DX was awesome because they were telling people to suck it. Now I kinda feel bad that I just totally turned on him for no reason.

Also,

BRETT SCREWED BRETT

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I don't know that Bret totally screwed Bret ... there's probably some truth on all sides of that mess ... but his belief that Shawn and Hunter have "destroyed the business" and that Shawn "couldn't change" despite becoming a born-again Christian ... dude needs to let it go.

EDIT: If anything Bret's only confirmed Shawn's statements that Bret is his own biggest mark.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I just posted the Bret Screwed Bret thing as a joke because I think it became a pretty popular sign at events. I'ved watched that documentary like three times and it's very fascinating. Him punching Vince's lights out is so great. Hunter and Michaels seemed to feel genuinely surprised and upset about it afterward.

I really like these rankings and I would even if you didn't have Vince at #1. Looks pretty similar to how I would rank things thus far.

Can you explain why? Looking for reasons why people don't like the Vince pick.

I don't know where to begin to rank Vince. I love it and hate it for different reasons.

He has claimed it had nothing to do with being in Canada. It's in his DVD.

EDIT: I think Bret's side of it had everything to do with Shawn, Shawn's actions and what Bret thought of them. Bret gives a pretty detailed account of it all from his side in his book. I can't remember everything.

Without a doubt Bret loved him some Bret. I just sort of feel bad for him because Vince decided that Bret wasn't going to fit into his future plans, so he convinced him to join WCW in a passive aggressive way (told Bret that his future involved lots of losses to Michaels before winning the title back... just to lose it to Austin at Wrestlemania XIV). As Bret was a complete company man up to that point, that treatment (inc. Montreal) is totally disgusting.

This is of course assuming that Bret really only wanted a dignified exit from the WWF. If there was any incentive whatsoever from Bischoff to bring the belt on WCW I cannot really blame McMahon.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Who really knows the full story? McMahon may be the only one, and he may never tell it.

I just wish Bret could bury the damn hatchet, show up on Raw (or Smackdown or whatever) and shake Shawn's hand. They're two of the greatest ever. I hate that Bret's holding onto all this animosity and bitterness.

The other part that bugs me is, if you read Bret's book, it sure seems a lot of his dislike of Shawn stems from homophobia. That's just really disappointing.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

OK, can't just select on trade value. I'd be too pissed if I didn't end up with someone I really wanted at the top of the draft. With the 15th overall pick of the draft, I select:

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I love RVD and he's what got me (slightly) into ECW back in the day. I didn't watch wrestling much/at all from 2003-2008 but RVD is a guy who should have been the face of the company IMO.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I like the RVD pick although you could have gotten him later. Criminally misused by WWE imo.

Punk pick is bad but not as bad as people think. He's pretty clearly on a path to being the top guy in the industry.

I still don't get the love for the Vince pick. It's established that he isn't doing the "owner" type stuff, so we're putting him as #1 overall as a character and average booker/announcer?

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Thoughts on RVD: Very, very good worker who I will stop just short of calling great, but his character I just never fell in love with, and I'm not sold he actually could carry a company. He'd be a guy I'd love landing as my second or third piece, but not quite this high. I may be in the minority here.
