Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Kane gets a lot more value if he doesn't get unmasked in your promotion. I think he can be a lot better than WWE lets him be, especially if there aren't a bunch of other huge guys overshadowing him in your promotion (he seriously doesn't even look that big in WWE now). Also don't give him idiotic storylines involving necrophilia.

there's maybe one big man that I can think of that I would possibly take over Kane, but I think its kinda 50/50 with them. I think if someone wants a big man here, then Kane is a very solid choice

There might be better big men in-ring workers then Kane still available, but I feel that none bring the intimidation factor that Kane does. He truly was a ****ing beast his first year and a half in the WWF, as evidenced by the fact that even guys like The Rock and HHH (and of course Undertaker) wanted no part of seeing Kane come out when the lights dimmed and the flames erupted. Obviously I won't be unmasking him,as that was just plain stupid, and his storylines won't be sideshow material like they ended up being starting in late 1999/2000.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Also, one of many reasons why I wanted Raven: the guy delivered some of the coolest, most interesting promos of any wrestler I have ever seen. Check out this video and try telling me it's not awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Peay2cxjrss

I wonder if whoever had the Undertaker (NozeCandy) isn't regretting the Regal pick right now...

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Also, if anyone early in the 5th round is interested in trading down and stockpiling later round back to back picks, let me know.....provided my guy is still available

I wanted Snuka, but I knew he never drop to me since I don't pick for quite a while. Think he would've been a great fit for me.

Nope. Everyone obviously knows who Kane is and what he and the Undertaker did, I passed on it for now. If I want another huge dude I preferred another anyway. Pairing Taker and Kane in this is almost boring.

Kane being unmasked and allowed to speak is one of the stupider things the WWE has ever done with a successful character

Honestly, I'm surprised Show lasted this long. Been in the main event picture pretty much since 1996.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

I hate the Big Show, the most boring thing ever is being at a live event and having to sit through a match with The Big Show, it almost doesn't even matter who you pair him with....that said, he is one humongous individual

Edit: Though I guess you could say somethig similar about Kane's ring work, I just like the character of Kane more

Just three picks in the last eight hours. That's a bit dissapointing after what seemed like a pick-heavy day yesterday.

I think Kane fell too far. I'm not sure why you guys were so down on him. I considered him in the third.

Re: Professional Wrestling Promotion Draft

Outside of Honky, I love the tweener fed.

I mean that in the sense that Honky isn't a tweener. I like HTM.
