    Great pick aswell dude the heavy hitters are really starting to disappear fast now

    I fecking love following the draft! Could never partake though due to time constraints and head would be fit to explode trying to write shows etc.

    PS. Would everyone be alright with it if I did a review sort write up after Yer first shows and again after the ppvs? It'll probably go un-noticed but I'd almost feel like I'd taken part then!

    Lebowskilite drafted my pick and I've to go to work now so just a heads up that I likely won't have my pick up til after 5.

    I'd love to see this. I constantly wish there was a way to get people not participating involved in the draft as well, so would be thrilled to see someone posting reviews, etc :D

    I'm sorry to hear that ABMG, though Jericho is being a dick about it:

    Ah the worst part of the draft...THE WAITING!.

    Spent the day assessing last years picks in work and seeing who is most likely going to be picked and who I can get and Ive got the foundations and structure of my fed in place. Fairly happy with HBK and should be able to get who I want to feud with him. Have a great idea for this feud and where it could go as well as ideas for who to get for my upper mid card feud, though Im not confident of getting my first choices in that yet.

    Bold move by TBC and im looking forward to what hes going to do but can easily say I wouldnt be taking a risk like he has. He who dares wins I suppose. Good luck


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,441 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    I know who I want. I know who I desperately want because I know I would have so, so much fun writing a feud for them with The Rock. And its someone who might stick round for a while yet, or could go next pick. I just don't know :(

    I've already got my storyline mapped out, but if the draft doesn't go my way, well then a hasty rewrite shall be in order.

    Last year I just had a loose structure being my first year and it served me well. Its not always about the wrestler or his character but how well you write for him.

    I honestly have no idea who I'm gonna pick next! I have a rough idea of who I'd like to get next but the Draft was just so damn unpredictable last year, and I've a feeling this year will be the same!

    Its already unpredictable. No way did I see Seth Rollins being picked first or Trish and Lita start off in the first round or anywhere close to it.

    No pick is guaranteed. While I think my picks should, in a perfect world, make it to me, its anyones guess who gets picked.

    Seeing as this is my 1st time participating in the PW Draft, how exactly does it work after everyone has drafted their roster of 20?

    First Round Pick FTW :D

    The basic aim is to create a PPV showcasing your roster. We are normally allowed 5 tv shows and a PPV write up. TV shows are usually used to build up feuds that are gonna be in your PPV. Doing 5 tv shows is not mandatory but showing us how you built up your matches that are on your PPV helps us decide who we vote on at the end.

    Beware being too rigid in your storylines. You can guarantee that if you need a particular wrestler for a particular storyline he will be taken before you get a chance. A lot of flexibility is needed where if your first choice goes then you can slot in your second third or even your fourth choice

    Well after everyone has their roster assembled we're then each asked to submit a PPV card detailing who's facing who etc and who wins each match. You book your show basically.

    As a further option, usually around Round 10, the Evaluation thread is launched and people can if they wish post some shows and build up their PPV. It's a way to make your eventual PPV seem that bit more special and most people choose to use this option but it's your call if you want to do so. I'd recommend it though.

    Pick is up, sorry for the delay. I legit spent the last half hour in work trying to decide between 2.

    Pish, that's the International Heavyweight Championship you see before you. I can't help it if we all use the same belt maker :p
