There are a lot of high schoolers and college aged guys who love wrestling and spend the money to go to matches and buy the merchandise etc.

lol, I couldn't imagine being some enhancement talent guy looking to get a job in assani's fed. At least Mick isn't anywhere near as stiff as Vader and Brody, but he's more crazy

disagree, there's a whole lot of talent out there, but if one only really knows WWF stuff, then they may have problems

you weren't the only one, deezy and I were trying hard to move back up to get him. I was making a strong push for him instead of mysterio


The bambam pick is interesting. I always thought he got misused a lot as he wasn't fully understood

I think BB is a great pick tbh. His work rate slowed down with injuries and drug problems, but that is a guy who could really put together a great match in his day, knew how to get heat and cut a promo

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

btw, I like it. DDP was great in his prime, esp. with Kimberly and his other talent.

Can't wait to watch DDP and HBK have a match fully centered them countering each other in a endless finisher loop.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Yea, sometimes the cutter finish would look way scripted and come off weak, but when he pulled it off good it was gold.

Seriously, that one on Eddie is so awesome

Yeah I always liked DDP, the Diamond Cutter was one of my favorite finishers, he was definetly over huge for a while with the WCW crowd

Yeah, I think DDP's a great fit with your fed. Pretty fair value at this point of the draft too.

DDP was pretty huge value here, was a legit #1 face in a fed for prob 2-3 years and has other stuff to offer outside of working.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

DDP is a very good pick this deep. The Diamond Cutter/RKO is one of my favorite moves.

(Kobashi did a version of the cutter from a vertical suplex position. That would absolutely be my finisher.)

I was under the impression that people in the know didn't think much of DDP. I always thought he was great.

Well, he wasn't a great in-ring worker relative to his popularity and his ability to pop a crowd, but for the total package, I think he's definitely Top 50 or so which is the point we've gotten to in this draft.

Watching all these videos is making me realize DDP actually fell a little too far.
