Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

A TON of people did not like Hogan even during his peak. He was never my favorite but he was booked perfectly for what Vince wanted.

That being said he should be taken over HBK and probably over Rock although SCSA going #1 is totally fine by me as I will forever be a massive SCSA mark.

The HBK promo with the fake Bret entrance and his Summerfest match vs Hogan are two of my all-time favorite HBK moments.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Hogan was a very bad wrestler and not very slick on the mic. I guess the only thing he's got going for him is longevity.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I don't care what you think for the purposes of this draft, there's a million different ways to go about building. But, a lot of people are just expressing hate for Hogan which is mind-boggling to me.

I so agree. I was never into it, got into it at said timeframe and then went on to lose it.

Hogan is the most popular wrestler of all time... tough to feel bad about having him.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I think the fact that at least half of the drafters are saying a easy Hogan #1 and outsiders are coming in going like "WHAT?" shows that Hogan should be number one. Regardless of what happened in Hogan Knows Best and how terrible that show is, most people think fake-wrestling. Hulkster.

That being said too though, nothing has been a spew except for the fact that he hasn't gone it. All three picks still have been great picks anyways. Considering I had

1. Hogan
2. xxx
3. Stone Cold
4. The Rock
5. xxx
6. HBK

and I'm pretty sure 1+2 will go very soon.

And no picks overnight? Buzzkill.

Alternatively If the commish wants a reserve for anyone who dissapears I'd be happy to do that as well.


Edit: I have 3 undrafteds I'd definitely put above Hogan and about 4 more I would see no problem with them going ahead of him.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Just saw this in the OP, why is this a 30-year league? Most wrestlers only been around for ~10years if not less.

I dont see what happens in 15 years.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I wouldn't really focus on the 30 year thing so much. As long as people realize it's a career draft.

He was almost never willing to lose. "Willingness to lose" is a really valuable trait in pro wrestling.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Also, the 1997-2003 sentiment makes me sad. Wrestling was awesome in the early 90s, just for different reasons. I probably prefer it, which might be a little bit of nostalgia, but I love that period.

Yeah I go back a little earlier than 1997. That's when it was really fun though. The Monday Night Wars were the best.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

The Monday Night Wars were definitely fun. I preferred WWF, but I went to a WCW event at the Palace when Sting was coming from the rafters. Sadly, I think that event was less rigged than some Pistons games I've seen there.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Can't believe I missed this. I agree with Austin/Rock as 1/2 (may have reversed the order though.) HBK is a little too high. Even though he was my favorite wrestler, he quite simply, never made as much money as others available in this draft.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Ask a random dude on the street to name the best pro wrestler of all time and Hogan is clearly the most frequent answer.
