Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I'm not a huge fan of Sting or Lawler, to be honest. Although I admit my tastes may not be the majority's tastes. Sting = great face, Lawler = very very good heel so it's certainly not bad.

Hart/Edge is capable of great things IMO

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Agreed. I'm calling it a night, hoping to pick tomorrow morning. If both my guys are off the board at that time, I'm putting my fist through the school's monitor.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft



I'm pretty sure if nothing else I have the two best entrances hahaha: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN5CiElINSs

Honestly, how can you not love Scott Hall? To me he was the most likeable heel of all time, surpassing even Corporate Rock. His swagger, bravado, and machismo were really something to behold, and his Cuban accent smack talk was truly awesome. Add onto this his amazingly awesome trademark toothpick flick, the fact that he was capable of putting on tremendous matches (HBK/Razor Wrestlemania Ladder Match is still my favorite match of all-time), and a ****ing sweet finisher in the Razor's Edge, and to me the guy is the total package, alcoholism be damned. Hell, I even loved him as a member of the nWo, his "survey says....one more for the good guys" promos never failed to crack me up. I saw someone mention that HHH and Hall being together could be a problem, but I assure you when they see the amazing booking I have put together they will have no desire to influence storylines.

As you might be able to tell, as a wrestling fan I have always much preferred the heels to the faces, as they have always seemed much more interesting to me. In the Tiburon Wrestling Association, I plan to utilize both HHH and Ramon as heels, and as my two headliners, I will let the crowd decide who they want to cheer for. I am really satisfied with my first two picks, and I think some great storylines could be generated out of their all-around talents.


My first 2 selections:

HHH
Razor Ramon

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Well that just made me like our top-of-the-third-round decision a lot more. GREAT pick. Now the guy I want better not go.

Don't see how you can take him with V^2 still on the board.

I spent at least 30 min debating between him and Race. Great selection.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I figured there's like a 1/20 chance my other guy slips cause there's definitely people who think he sucks, but there was 0 chance Rude was getting by.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Sidenote: WWEClassics.com is leeeeeeeegit. $3.95 a month is killer for all the stuff they have. All 1993 and 1994 RAWs with more 1995s coming up.

Tons of other old stuff. A+++++++

I know a guy who went as Val Venis for Halloween this year out in the East Village. It lasted about 5 minutes before he was buck naked.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

So glad that our shortlist is accurate.

When we decided on Goldberg, the list contained: Edge, Goldberg, Race and Rude. Ridiculous how close that was.

If cruizin had gotten Rude to go with Jericho/Piper ... that'd have been sick.
