Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

btw, can we be a little more flexible on the time limit on weekends? I am often away from my computer for long periods from Friday - Sunday.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

It seems I got lucky on the Superstar Billy Graham pick. A few people passed on him above me.

When my third round pick came up, my top heel was Graham. My top face was David Von Erich. I thought my roster was better served getting another top face to main event with Kurt Angle (my #1 pick).



I've misread the draft twice. At first, I thought the draft would be modern-heavy. But, the early second round picks seemed to ruin that. So, I then thought it would be fairly balanced. However, the late third and early fourth round picks have realigned to what I originally thought.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I'm way behind in the thread, but I agree that Styles in a lot of cases should have gone before Daniels. The reason I took Daniels is because Styles can really only work as a face and I already had The Rock. I think Daniels is more of a WWE type guy with his better mic work and character.

My top three picks were pretty awesome imo, even with a terrible pick like Malenko I like where my promotion is.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Was looking at Graham but the wiki article made it sound like he had no in ring ability whatsoever.

I think at Graham's peak he was better than Hogan at his peak. (and Hogan was good in the ring, not great, when allowed or needed like in Japan).

He was certainly over because of his personality and look, though.

his in ring ability wasn't very good, but, he knew how to work around his deficiencies and was a massive heat magnet. His 11 month run as the WWF champ did a lot of business and Bruno had discussed with Graham about double crossing Vince Sr to keep the belt on Graham and extend his and Bruno's program

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

OK, sorry about the wait guys, I just got out of class...... Raven getting selected put a dent into my plans, but I feel I can still take my fed in the direction I was going for, pick/write-up will be up in 10-15 mins.

Well, looks like we weren't getting Raven at all this round. Nice pick.

Bockwinkel and SBG are A+.

As soon as his pick is up I'll quickly make mine... I apologize for not being able to do write ups today but I have a term paper due tomorrow and that has to take my attention.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Not sure what I think of Kane. Pretty much how I felt about him when I watched wrasslin'. I want to say there's better big man left, but I haven't thought about it too much.
