Seems like there's way too much overlap there.

If you add in "Making Funny Faces" Orton+JR shoots to the top

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I think the JR pick is pretty bad based on a certain undrafted. I'll quote this post when he goes.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Screw me, I'm going to stay up doing this and do my 12 x 400-meter repeats workout on four hours' sleep. There should be a surgeon general's warning on this thread or something.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I can't tell you how much it kills me that I didn't think to suggest Piper when we picked back-to-back rounds 1/2. Argh.

Please post all 21 in the same post ranked in order (try to do McMahon even if you have a different criteria for ?/50).

Waiting to post them all at once will also allow you to go back and revise.

Hopefully, a thorough list like this will give us a great jumping off point for discussion.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

ohjtwyrtrwtuhortrtuhno........Really wanted Rude, what a great pick, him Dibiase and Mr. Perfect were so much alike imo and to get him this late when the other 2 went alot early (rightfully so) is tremendous value. Wish he woulda dropped to us.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I'll just slot McMahon/whoever it is (I haven't gone and looked yet) where I think they should go. Part of the difficulty of it all is I'm not sure at all how I feel about the McMahon pick. Part of me actually thinks having him makes the rest of the draft moot.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I don't like Rude being paired with HBK though as they had a similar persona.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

If they're against each other I think HBK has to be used as the babyface.

OK, I'll just say it right now: My rankings are surprising the hell out of me. Completely.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

rough ranking, then i pass out.
1-flyingrat/jroth-bret hart & edge(so much potential. all around best thus far)
2-sarcasticrat- rock & owen(owen was very underrated, and the rock is the rock. very solid)
3-dnkyhunter31-cm punk & ricky steamboat(both are average to great both on the mic and in the ring. would be an amazing match if it were to happen.)
4-mronizuka-hbk and rick rude(leader of dx vs former dx bodyguard, and bad ass himself. defently like)

5-15 are all very very close

5-dynasty-kurt angle and dusty rhodes(kurt is amazing, wasent too much a fan of dusty, but he is better than alot of guys.)
6-russm and vickrey-andre and bruno samartino(andre was a monster, and bruno was the man for ever. i can see the arguement why the should be higher, but this is as high as i can place them)
7-cruzin and b123-jericho and piper(jericho is #1 in wwe right now on mic. piper is very good on the mic. both are/were very talented in the ring)
8-iggymcfly-rvd and cena(only this low because of the way cena is booked. 5 moves does not impress me. rvd is fun to watch, but quite sloppy.)
9-thedeezy and kdawg-eddy and funk(r.i.p eddy. eddy was very good, but even when he won the big belt, it seemed like he never broke thru to me. funk was all about the hardcore. im not too sure how these two would mesh)
10-littlekeed-flair and harley race(flair was the #1 to step in the ring imo, but since 1999 hasent really done much. hurt his legasy. and dont know enough about harley to say anything here.)
11-scarytiger and mikey-ted dibase and lou thesz(i always felt that ted was a better manager than wrestler. probally because i havent seen him wrestle very often. dident see lou thez wrestle, dont know here.)
12-sharktank-hhh and scott hall(hhh could carry the entire roster, but hall is very unreliable. when he is on, he is very good, but when he is off, someone could get hurt, if he shows up.)
13-detlefschremf-austin and brock(austin is great, but brock wasent around long at all, and he is dangerous in the ring.)
14-golden rhino-randy savage and jake the snake(savage was good, but just not my personal taste. jake was never what i very good, and the drinking and drugs dident help)
15-untouchable and mjw-sting and lawler(sting was ok, not my personal taste, and lawler is better as a announcer imo.)

16-assani fisher-foley and vader(both were acceptable, but someone will get seriously hurt, again, between these two.)
17-wrane and antidan-orton and benoit(huge orton fan, but cant look at benoit the same way since that weekend)
18-wesrwood-nash and hennig(hennig was... perfect, but nash is defenetly not. hurt all the time, trouble backstage.)
19-lurchy/ajohnson- vince and goldberg(not sure what vince is gonna be used for, and goldberg was a flash in the pan.)
20-nozecandy-taker and warrior(the world quickest ring entrence vs the worlds longest ring enterence. match would have to be very quick. not what i would want with my headliners)
21-jack bando-hogan and batista(neither are better than average in the ring, batista is bad on the mic.)

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Yeah, most of the best posters in the whole website are SE regs IMO

Damn, there's one UNDRAFTED who I really want to take round 3, but I think there is better value elsewhere....if I can get him in round 4 it will be a pure steal I think
