I just had the image of Vader Powerbombing someone through a craps table and had to go with the MGM Grand.

I don't think OOG's showing up anytime soon and I'm not going to be on before 8 AM, so I'm going to PM my picks to both mellow and foleyfan since he's after me and can do them both at once if it comes to that.

It's better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.

I'll put you on the waiting list for the next one. It starts to wear thing after twenty guys. I've already got a few people lined up for the summer draft, including TI, HTQ and J-Hawk, though I am going to favor those who haven't been in one of these yet. You got a spot waiting for you this summer, if you're interested.

Some unique choices so far, which means there's a chance I might get somebody better than 12th pick would deserve.

I was originally going to take a completely different arena, but fate smiled on me and I got the guy I would have taken at # 1 AND a massive arena in his home state. Without any further delay I will be selecting, the site of WrestleMania X-Seven, The Reliant Astrodome in Houston, TX.



And I will headline my large event with one of the biggest names in the history of the industry, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin.

'Stone Cold' Steve Austin's got a message fer all of you bastards who didn't pick him!

Very solid choices here.

The only bad part of drafting so late is that I'm not sure which location/top wrestlers will be available.

Judging from last years draft.. even the very last pick in round one can have a promotion built around him or her.

As long as your picks fit into a larger plan, you will be safe. That's one of the reasons why I thought the trades last year was a bad idea.

Fantastic. My two top picks, and their respective arenas, get taken. Well, I guess I should've expected it to happen earlier anyways. Now I have to make a decision. Hmm..

I'll have my pick up shortly.

Hell, I'm willing to bet there will be picks in the second and third round that can have promotions built around them. Last year, I drafted Buddy Rogers in the tenth round and most would agree that you could build a promotion around him.

Well, of my top 3 remaining choices, I think this guy would bring in the most money. With the 7th pick in the draft, I choose

(IMG:http://artfiles.art.com/images/-/Shawn-Michaels-170-Photograph-C11813092.jpeg)

"The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels

My location is

Can't argue with that, he was the top heel in my promotion last year.

Come onnnn, stick me on the bottom of the list.

Why not have 25 of us and like, 35 rounds instead of 40? Who needs a roster of 40 wrestlers, you jobbers.

Edit random fact:

With 35 people on your roster you can have a card with;

2 announcers, 5 managers, 10 singles matches, and a 4 team tag match!



It just makes more sense than the rest of us waiting like half a year and then most people who were involved in this draft not be interested anymore and us ending up with not enough people to even have another one.

Why not have 30? Why not have 50?

Gotta have a cut-off point somewhere. Suck it up. Most of us had to. (IMG:http://forums.thesmartmarks.com/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Because there aren't 30 or 50 people waiting to play from what I understand.

If there was another 20 people who wanted to play I'd just start a consecutive draft. But there's only like 3-5 more of us.

Alright, so after thinking about it for a bit I decided on the obvious choice. I started to project who might be available in the 2nd round in order to match up with this pick and realized that you won't get a bigger match than the one you'd have with this guy. He's the biggest face in wrestling history. He was also a great heel, and can get the crowd riled up either way. My pick is probably the greatest of all time....

(IMG:http://neilbeynon.files.wordpress.com/2007/11/hulk-hogan-photo.jpg)

Hulk Hogan.

I'd like an arena that brings it.

Vader was a late first rounder last go `round. I picked up a MAIN EVENT babyface in the 4th round and a World Champion in the 8th or 9th. Sometimes people just slide for whatever reason.

Also, Stevie if you steal my second choice I'm going to stab you in the fucking face.

All right, my choice was between Hogan and this guy, and honestly, I was hoping Hogan would be taken. My pick is a proven draw, a guy who can bring it both in the ring and on the mic, and versatile enough to be an extremely effective face or heel. There's not a single person I can think of that couldn't have great main-event level matches with him. And, in an added bonus, he happens to be my favourite wrestler of all time. The centrepiece of my promotion:

(IMG:http://www.geocities.com/blasto1979/savchamp.jpg)

"Macho Man" Randy Savage

My promotion will be based out of Detroit, using Ford Field as the base for big events, and Joe Louis Arena for smaller ones.

Funny. I was choosing between Hogan and Savage, and actually had Detroit lined up as the arena before a last minute switch. Good pick.

Well, after being finally talked into taking Savage, you take him away from me.

Back to the drawing board.
