Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I'm starting to think Perfect would have been worth a second round pick, he was so money

^ this was from the start of 3rd round

the two guys i was referring to were joe/styles. first guy still on the board and is really a lot of value at this point

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I can't really believe that AJ wasn't the first to be picked of the Styles/Joe/Daniels threesome. In fact I thought Daniels would fall a lot further than the other 2.

AJ was also the facemelter I was insinuating in a post i made made ~start of round 2 that someone asked me to take down.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I'm already going over potential storylines for my federation...if the rest of the draft goes at least somewhat to plan for me, you guys are going to be treated to some true booking genius....or at the very least a few laughs hahaha

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

It would be lol if all the owners could summarise their 5 year plan or something at the end of this. I don't know how feasible it is for everyone to do that but it would be great to see.

Blue Blazer vs. Mr. Perfect

Owen was so ahead of his time.

The suplex at 3:30 looks really cool and I haven't really seen done ever.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Yeah, I expected Styles to go first too, but I thought Daniels going first was the correct move. He's a little less reliant on doing the same spots over and over again in the ring, and is a little more consistent on the mic. I mean, I don't even want to say that he's better on the mic because when Styles has something really good to work with (like when he was paired with Christian in that stable or when he was feuding with Angle), he absolutely knocks it out of the park to a level that almost no one else can, but in terms of getting over the average storyline/feud with a good promo, I think Daniels is definitely superior.

Man Nitro was awesome. Actually usually it'd be like 2.5 hrs of crap and then a few really awesome moments. Love people throwing trash in the ring, definitely one the best aspects of that era.
the best part of all those old WCW videos is how much The Brain would always rip NWO Hogan even though he was a heel announcer ...

the best one is here:

"what havei been saying all these years" lol

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Whats sick is that given where Joe/Daniels/Styles went someone almost had the opportunity to take 2 of them. Were any of you considering that if AJ had it made it back to you?

I'm not sure exactly what the story is in that video, so I can't comment on what Piper was doing on TNA and whether this was staged or not....as to why Russo's a douche there are a good amount of reasons, first and foremost he is a pretty terrible booker. I'm going to bed now, but I'm sure Anti-Dan/DNKY/4thStreetPete could make a post regarding why Russo sucks...if nobody makes a post regarding Russo by the time I get out of class in the morning then I will make a post filling you in

I could see it, I misheard Piper the other night dropping an F Bomb but it sounds like he's saying "what the ****" to me. Hard to tell considering how easy it is to understand Mach.

That's the other problem with having all these guys supposedly for their entire careers simultaneously. You're kinda missing that natural progression where young guys move up from the mid-card into the main event and then eventually put over the new young guys on the way back down. I can see booking a show or even a year or so with guys all at their peak, but you can't really lay out a long-term plan when everyone's the same age.

Yeah this is a good point. But it would be nice to see some kind of writeup at the end of it all. If it has to be restricted to just one show for above reasons then so be it.

Although booking one show vs career will over/undervalue some wrestlers and doesnt fit with the criteria people are using to draft. So this couldnt be the only means used to judge the best promotion
