Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Glad to see the TNA guys getting some love. AJ is one of my favorites! Would be easier to judge the pick if you listed your previous selections though

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Is NozeCandy's Round 4 pick real or is it a joke?

Daniels is a smark pick through and through. I think for those of us who have watched him over the past 10-14 years absolutely love the pick as we've seen him in ECWA and all sorts of other indy promotions, along with him being Curry Man. So, for some of us, its almost that we share in his success as we've really followed him over the years and have wondered why his talent has gone unnoticed. Just dig deeper into his great catalog of matches, and one thing that you will also see is that the guy is a great in-ring psychologist.

Honestly, if he was about 5' taller and 40 lbs heavier, he'd be soooo massive that it wouldn't be funny. He has tons more in-ring psychology then many guys in the biz, and lord knows more then guys that Vince is pushing right now. But, because he is a Jr HW, he gets slept on and doesn't get the respect he deserves and hasn't been pushed in the way he deserves

I will say that he is an absolutely great dude overall. I remember emailing him a bit back in 99-02 and he'd always email back when asking question or just shooting the **** every now and then. I was probably one of many people that did that, but he always made sure to email my friends and I back. While I think him being picked is a bit early, I am tickled in one way that people are recognizing the talent that he posseses and I always want to get people into him as he just deserves to be a massive star based on a whole lot of different factors

Good work with the spreadsheet Assani. I was hoping someone would do that.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

AJ styles IMO is a massive pick right here. The guy is really on the verge of blowing up and can do it. He can work great with Jrs and he can work with HWs, IMO he just needs more time to fully work himself out and We'll be seeing the real future of professional wrestling. great pick

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Hey, if anyone's interested in trading down, there's someone still on the board who I think would be a really good fit in my fed that I'd be willing to trade up for.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

............and lance storm is such an under rated pick that its not funny. What he was doing in teh WCW at the end of their life was just awesome. There's really no other way to put it, he was a straight up heel that had the crowd in the palm of his hand that it was a pure delight to watch. The guy is a great technical wrestler, and proved in WCW that he could carry the stick and get over in a role that was different then what he did in ECW

That was a sham. Poor Storm was so misused in WWE.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Austin/Brock/AJ/Storm is definitely a ridiculous core to this point but I don't really love the Storm pick. Always thought he was a little overrated in the ring by the smark contingent and he's kinda one-dimensional. Would be better as a later-round pick to go with someone with an upper-midcard full of really good technical guys he could work with rather than in a fed full of elite wrestlers in the main event since I can't really see him as a main event guy.

Storm in dying WCW was awesome. The title collecting angle was sweet. Stone Cold buried him so hard though, jeez.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I'm officially to the point where I'm looking for the reset button. In round 4.

(Not that I thought AJ would fall to us. I didn't. At least there's still two guys I really want.)

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Can somebody post all the trades on the spreadsheet in a simple readable form. For example, starting on cell A115, you could state:

"Team A traded picks #1 and #9 to Team B in exchange for picks #4 and #5."

Vince just didn't get it with Storm. Storm was great at doing what Bret was doing in 97, but to a better degree in WCW. If Vince had let Storm run with that, along with having Christian and Edge as his stable mates for a long run, yea, it would've been heelrific and it would've drawn a good amount. Storm was just a guy who Vince didn't understand like Vader and it hurt him in one sense as it drew him to retirement, and the wrestling world is less for it IMO

And if those two guys go, Wrane, I may just turn you loose on your original idea and supersize it, LOL.

If they go, we trade our entire roster for upcoming picks. And we run with it.
