I debated that. Looking at the talent available and NOT available, I don't think it's possble for us to build the best all-around roster at this point. I'm reasonably confident we can build a very solid roster though (we have a plan for that), but we're going to need some help getting it to another level. I think Ross can push it to another level with his skills.

I happen to think most wrestling fans completely underestimate the impact great announcing can have on a company. But I don't expect everyone to agree or like the pick.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Actually, a bunch of the guys taken have announcing history now that I think about it. Macho did it for a while, Foley was pretty good when he was on SD for a year or so, and Dusty...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwOIavellt4

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I always liked this intro:

The music is meh, but those surprise intros where you know who it is within 0.5 seconds are cool.

I'm pretty sure I agree more with antidan than with Dynasty here.

Everyone forgetting the original RAW play-by-play announcer? We got him, imo.

I expect we're done with picks for the night. So, everybody might as well make a 1-21 ranking of the first two rounds.

My view was that your first two picks is essentially your best main event.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I thought Ross was a 3rd or 4th round pick. I also had him #2 in the non-male wrestler category after Vince. Hopefully the Jim Ross gimmick will show up in this thread, he was hilarious.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

5 duos I like so far, in no particular order:

Owen + the Rock - Real chance to reform the Nation
Punk + Steamboat - Feud over who does less drugs
Sting + Lawler - Sting/Flair redux
Jericho + Piper - All interview segments, all the time
Hitman + Edge - #1 in Canada

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I thought JR was fine here. He really is the voice of WWE and one of the greatest wrestling annoucers out there. I mean, buiness is about to pick up! I'm cooking some food right now but I'd love to hear why some people don't like it. We actually have a pretty good sleeper lineup/idea going and our first 4 picks will completely contridict that. That being said, we felt that the Orton/Benoit/JR brings to the table, the others can't. However, the others can bring stuff that we like although the mic skills isn't there.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

We're lacking on mic skills and drawing power. Mic skills I think we can fix. Drawing power ... not so much but that wasn't going to change at this point anyway. I know we'll have a fun organization to watch when we're done though.

BTW I am starting on my duo rankings ... a little taste of what I'll drop tomorrow:

Austin/Lesnar
DRAWING POWER: Austin 10, Lesnar 8
IN-RING WORK: Austin 7, Lesnar 8
MIC SKILLS: Austin 8, Lesnar 4
CHARISMA: Austin 10, Lesnar 7
LONGEVITY: Austin 7, Lesnar 2
TOTAL POINTS: 70

Yep, doing it for everyone (Except for McMahon because I can't judge that the same way).

I just tried ranking them and it was too hard. I'm really glad antidan found this thread.

Did you seriously just rank Lesnar as a better worker than Austin?

Yes. Barely. Once Austin lost his knees he wasn't great. Then again all I've watched of Lesnar were his best matches, I had stopped watching regularly at that point, so the bad ones I didn't see I suppose.
