yea, switching the CruiserWeight title to the 100KG and under title was just subtlety brilliant, and got sooooooooooo much heat. The guy was a heat magnet in dying WCW and if they had survived, he would've done some really good things there

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Storm/Styles Writeup:

I drafted both guys with the same idea in mind: Athletic mid carders that could contend for the heavyweight strap down the road but be a strong mainstay just below the marquee talent. Both Storm and Styles have immense in-ring talent and I would go as far to say that Storm is on par with both Owen and Bret on the technical aspect. As I said before, Storm was horribly misused in WWE, but that was Vince's fault for ****ing up the Invasion story line from moment 1. Styles, while being used correctly in TNA, has also put together some fantastic 5 star matches with Joe and Daniels, while contending with the big boys like Angle and Jarrett. I really believe a promotion should be balanced and what these guys bring to the table (5 star match potential) is hard to find, especially from a scientific aspect.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I never liked Storm. I recognized he was good in the ring, but he just came off like such a dick. He wasn't a good heel. He made me dislike him not in a way that I wanted to see him wrestle and lose, but that I didn't want to see him at all.

You can PM people your top two picks. That way you'll be guaranteed to make a selection.

I'll be shocked if the draft actaully gets to me tonight. (probably too man East Coasters, though)

Based on his past picks, I'd be very surprised if Rat took my guy. I'll be up for like a half hour more I guess.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Storm and DDP are both guys that fell a ton thanks to their misuse in the WWE.

Terrible WWE DDP Promo

This period was just painful to watch. It didn't get him over as a heel, those who didn't know who he was were just wondering who is this freak.

Better WWE DDP Promo

Probably a reach but I'm super tired and he seems to fit my stable well enough.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

i love malenko, but yea, he's very early, especially when there are some major 70s and early 80s guys left out there


to me malenko would be the focal point of a great jr HW division, but not picked this early. I feel that right now we are still picking guys who should be top guys, or at least we hope to be top guys, and Malenko never really proved that. Of course, you're garunteed that he'll put on really good to great matches. Everyone should get the complete dean vs eddie tape that the douchebag rob feinstein has made(really, probably one of the few times that I'd advocate anyone giving that ****er any money)

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

You read some interesting stuff when you start researching random guys. I just read about Hogan insisting he lose to a guy who was never very big in this guy's home country. This was in the late 90s. Hard to picture it.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

When I was like 10 I put my friend in a Texas Cloverleaf. He cried and told his mom on me and I got in trouble. I was always a big fan of that move.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Yeah there's probably better old guys left, but I just don't think they're very good in this. Wrestling has evolved so much. And I definitely don't feel remotely comfortable evaluating anyone from that time, so meh.

Didn't think there was anyone left with a really good all around skills package. Malenko's character doesn't need to do The Rock style promos to be effective.

I always thought Malenko was somewhat overrated. I can't believe he was No. 1 in the PWI 500 one year.

Arite, gimme 3 minutes to finish this. I guess it's not a homer pick, but it's still someone I love who probably "sucks" in the eyes of most

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

sarcastic rat, i just PM'd you my thought and yea, there is one guy that is one of the sicker wrestlers that I've seen that hasn't been picked. He may be an older guy, but I think today he could work as he had a great amateur pedigree, and has a "real" aura to him that can work with MMA getting more and more into the wider culture

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Yeah I'm not that ecstatic about the pick but he'll be a good contributor. This is like the hardest part of the draft for me, where we need to find solid guys who weren't really main eventers and have various flaws but can't start busting out crazy sleepers quite yet.

EDIT: Also researching this one is a pain in the ass, since it's impossible to tell if a bunch of older guys were really athletic/good workers or not based on a wikipedia article and other random stuff.
