Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

These PWI 500s are amazing. Once I get past the top 50, I start alternating between "Who's that?" and "ZOMG NAILZ WOWOWOWOWOWOW!!!"

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

While I appreciate the effort, I think doing the rankings by breaking down individual categories just doesn't work unless you have a category that accounts for how well they work together. That was a huge reason for putting Sting and Lawler together. They both have super longevity, Lawler made up for Sting's lack of elite mic skills but Sting makes up for it in what he does in the ring and how likable he is. Lawler evokes tons of negative emotion in people, plus he has GREAT value as an announcer. I just don't see how that combination is a lower half duo in this draft.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I actually agree mjw. There's definitely a couple lower-half duos who instinctively I would rate higher than the scores. It was still fun to do.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I really have no idea if this is a good pick or not. My gut tells me no, but his overall resume is pretty impressive I would say.

So with the 44th pick...

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

At this point I think it's a very solid pick actually. I'm not a Jarrett fan at all, but I mean, it's round 3, Jarrett in round 3 is fine.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

J-E double F J-A double R-E double T

Used to love that... I think he's solid, can you post your entire team? That matters a lot when determining whether something is a good pick at this point.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

JJ was amazing when wrestling in TN w/Lawler. He went to WWF and they completely trashed him with the country gimmick.

IMO he was a very solid worker in the south, then had to and 'pay his dues' with the big boys and that ruined him.

Not a huge fan of Jarrett, and I think you missed someone that would have fit a lot better with your roster.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I think Jarrett's a good pick given your roster, he fits some needs

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

JJ is a solid pick, if unspectacular. I sometimes wonder if he would've gone further in the WWF with his second run if he hadn't pissed Austin off so badly when he came in.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Luger I do not like, especially on a roster with Nash already there.

Totally forgot about JJ, but laughed pretty hard when I saw the picture. That dude was absurd.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I hate Luger so much I don't even have him on my close-to-200-guys board. (I know he's a top-200 all-time guy but I wasn't going near him with a 10-foot pole.)

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

And I really don't think a lot of the more "casual" fans like Luger much, either.
