    There is a new name being etched onto this here belt right as we speak

    and that name is...

    beakerjoe!
    Transformers_-_Shockwave.gif?v=1

    here are the final standings:
    2016 Boards.ie Draft Winner:
    1. Beakerjoe = 102pts

    Tied in 2nd / 3rd place: MNG = 93pts & Bounty Hunter: 93pts

    4th: Necrominus: 41pts
    5th: LeeJM: 36pts
    6th: Uncle Walt: 35pts
    7th: Shagnasti: 30pts
    8th: ABMG: 25pts
    9th: Pauli: 13pts
    10th: LTSC: 11pts
    11th: Slickric: 9pts
    12th: DM7: 8pts
    13th: Cheese Wagstaff: 7pts
    14th: TheBostonCrab: 6pts
    15th: JP Liz: 4pts

    shows how much of an impact some of the latter rosters / shows had as many of them got multiple votes despite not getting many write ups done. Speaking of write ups that was one of the categories voted upon that helped decide how many points people got above so lets see how people did in that category when isolated.
    MNG: 3 x no.1 (15pts) 7 x no.2 (28pts) 1 x no.1* (3pts) = 46pts
    BeakerJoe: 5 x no.1 (25pts) 1 x no.2 (4pts) 4 x no.3 (12pts) =41pts
    BH: 3 x no.1 (15pts) 2 x no.2 (8pts) 4 x no.3 (12pts) 1 x no.4 (2pts) = 37pts
    Necrominus: 1 x no.2 (4pts) 1 x no.3 (3pts) 3 x no.4 (6pts) 2 x no.5 (2pts) = 15pts
    LeeJM: 1 x no.3 (3pts) 2 x no.4 (4pts) 1 x no.5 (1pt) = 8pts
    Paulie: 1 x no.3 (3pts) 1 x no.5 (1pt) 1 x no.1* (3pts) = 7pts
    ABMG: 2 x no.4 (4pts) 3 x no.5 (3pts) = 7pts
    Cheese: 1 x no.4 (2pts) 3 x no.5 (3pts) = 5pts
    LTSC: 1 x no.4 (2pts) 1 x no.5 (1pt) = 3pts

    * This vote was a single vote with no no.2/3/4/5 so only counts as 3 point

    So former 3 time Draft champ won the write up category but what about the Best Roster vote
    Best Roster:
    Walt: 6 x no.1 (30pts) 1 x no.3 (3pts) 1 x no.4 (2pts) total = 35pts
    Shag: 1 x no.1 (5pts) 4 x no.2 (16pts) 2 x no.4 (4pts) 1 x no1* (3pts) = 28pts
    BH: 2 x no. 2 (8pts) 1 x no. 3 (3pts) 4 x no.4 (8pts) 1 x no.5 (1pt) = 20pts
    Beakerjoe: 1 x no.1 (5pts) 1 x no.2 (4pts) 3 x no.3 (9) 2 x no.5 (2pts) = 20pts
    LeeJM: 2 x no.2 (8pts) 2 x no.4 (4pts) 1 x no.5 (1pt) = 13pts
    Necrominus: 1 x no.1 (5pts) 1 x no.2 (4pts) 1 x no.5 (1pt) = 10 pts
    Slickric: 1 x no.1 (5pts) 1 x no.2 (4pts) = 9pts
    MNG: 2 x no.3 (6pts) 1 x no.4 (2pts) = 8pts
    DM 7: 1 x no.1 (5pts) 1 x no.3 (3pts) = 8pts
    ABMG: 1 x no.4 (2pts) 2 x no.5 (2pts), 1 x no.1* (3pts) = 7pts
    TBC: 2 x no.3 (6pts)= 6pts
    LTSC: 1 x no.2 (4pts) 1 x no.5 (1pt) = 5pts
    JP Liz: 1 x no.3 (3pts) 1 x no.5 (1pt) = 4pts
    Paulie21: 1 x no.5 (1pt)

    * This vote was a single vote with no no.2/3/4/5 so only counts as 3 point

    It was the Walt's WECWF that was voted as having the best roster this year so obviously the 3rd category which could affect the overall vote obviously did just that this year.
    Beakerjoe: 6 x no.1 (30pts) 2 x no.2 (4pts) 2 x no.3 (6pts) 1 x no.5 (1pt) = 41pts
    MNG: 3 x no.1 (15) 4 x no.2 (16) 2 x no.3 (6pts) 1 x no.4 (2pts) = 39pts
    Bounty Hunter: 2 x no.1 (10pts) 3 x no.2 (12pts) 4 x no.3 (12pts) 1 x no.4 (2pts) = 36pts
    Necro: 2 x no.2 (8pts ) 1 x no.3 (3pts) 2 x no.4 (4pts) 1 x no.5 (1pt) = 16pts
    LeeJM: 1 x no.2 (4pts) 1 x no.3 (3pts) 3 x no.4 (6pts) 3 x no.5 (3pts) = 16pts
    ABMG: 1 x no.3 (3pts) 3 x no.4 (6pts) 2 x no.5 (2pts) = 11pts
    Pauli: 2 x no.5 (2pts) 1 x no.1* (3pts) = 5pts
    LTSC: 1 x no.1* (3pts)
    Cheese: 2 x no.5 (2pts)
    Shag: 1 x no.4 (2pts)

    * This vote was a single vote with no no.2/3/4/5 so only counts as 3 point

    Yep There is Beyond Chaos Wrestling's beakerjoe at the top where to be honest he belinged this year after a stellar performance.


    Congratulations Joe and fair play to everyone who took part the standard was really high this year and there were some great reads.


    In one of my next posts in this thread I will announce who will be running the Draft in 2017 (less than 8 months away folks :pac: ) and then probably tomorrow I will post the winners of the PW Draft slammies in 2016 which will cover categories such as Best feud, Best match, Best Face, Heel and Diva Woman among others but first...

    *removes draft championship he won last year from around his waist and hands it over to Joe in a passing of the torch moment and shakes his hand...teases the stunner but no... The champ is here*

    Congrats to Joe well deserved

    Also whoever gave me number 1s without voting for anyone else your cheque is in the post


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,562 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    Yep Joe def deserved it. Really stepped up from last year (when he was really good too) and was just a level above. His Horsemen storyline not only made Cesaro a bonafide Megastar but for me won him the draft. Of course there was no real weak area on his card when you think about how he had Ronda Rousey vs Sasha banks and Tyler Breeze w/Zoolander on the undercard...


    Funny how both the last two previous champs (myself and MNG) both finished level behind him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,146 ✭✭✭Kankan14


    Just like Axel never got eliminated from the royal rumble I am undefeated in this draft (zero from zero).

    Joe I'm coming for you in 8 short months boy!!
















    Excellent draft everyone. Brilliant reading as always.

    Congrats Beakerjoe. Deserved winner.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,469 ✭✭✭LeeJM


    Congrats Joe. Well deserved. Standard was crazy high this year but Joe is definitely a deserved winner


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,527 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Congratulations Joe on a well deserved win. It was such a polished card from top to bottom and I had a feeling this was going to be his year.

    Thanks to those who voted for me and I'm very pleased to finish that highly and alongside BH who I thought had a tremendous showing with a whopper of a main event in Lesnar/Bryan. (P.S. Good for our rivalry that we finished level, eh BH? ;))

    It was great fun to be involved and here's hoping for another fun year in 2017 for what will be the Draft's tenth birthday.

    You bring up two interesting points MNG :D

    The first brings me to the announcement of the first Slammy award of 2016 which is a repeat of the draft winning announcement and fits your narrative for the MNG / BWA rivalry
    Best Feud
    Ric Flair vs Cesaro & the Horsemen Reborn 16pts

    Joint 2nd & 3rd: Brock Lesnar VS Daniel Bryan (BWA) 11pts Finn Balor vs Edge 11pts (MNG)

    4th: John Cena v Jeff Hardy 7pts (necrominus)
    Money INC VS Bockwinkel/Stevens 4pts (MNG)
    Ronda Rousey vs Sasha Banks 1pt (beakerjoe)
    Seth Rollins vs Ricky Steamboat 1pt (Cheese)

    and the second brings me to next years draft and much like this year when after I had won the title from you MNG I became the draft commissioner (for want of a better term) our man in charge next year will be.... The reigning champion beakerjoe!


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,527 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    He's a great choice to take on the mantle. I know he will do a super job.

    And, from a storyline point of view, there's so much to play off and reference that now I can't wait until the next one!

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,469 ✭✭✭LeeJM


    BH the Rollins/Steamboat feud wasnt mine.


  • Registered Users Posts: 677 ✭✭✭Cheese Wagstaff


    Well done Joe. Very deserving champion.

    My bad meant Cheese...you get a name check in the next slammy though
    Best Match
    Daniel Bryan VS Brock Lesnar 13pts (BH)

    2nd: Ric Flair VS Cesaro Iron Man Match 12pts (joe)

    3rd: Vader vs Tomohiro Ishii 6pts (MNG)

    4th: AJ Styles vs Taz 4pts (LeeJM)

    5th & 6th tied: Edge vs Finn Balor TLC 3pts (MNG) John Cena v Jeff Hardy 3pts (Necrominus)

    7th/11th:Sasha Banks VS Ronda Rousey 2pts (joe)
    The Rock, Rocky Johnson and High Chief Peter Maivia vs The Usos and Rikishi (paulie21) 2pts
    American Alpha vs The Brainbusters 2pts (BH)
    Jeff Hardy vs Andre 2pts (Necro)
    Shinsuke Nakamura vs Ethan Carter III 2pts (joe)

    12/14th:Seth Rollins vs Ricky Steamboat 1pt (Cheese Wagstaff)
    Elimination Chamber BCW Show One 1pt (joe)
    Gorgeous George vs Pat Patterson 1pt (BH)

    Almost another win for joe but my boys just about take this one while MNG once again rounds out the top 3 but don't worry MNG Once again you were involved in a tie! This time with your and Necro's PPV main events.

    Mad I seem to have chosen the one time joe isn't on here to post this :)

    Wow, cheers guys.... really thought MNG deserved it myself this year, but I'm seriously humbled to see the result. Thank you guys so much.

    After 2 years of coming 3rd I guess 3rd time is the charm. It feels weird to actually win the thing. I feel honoured. Some damn fine write ups this year (as always) and yes MNG (as mentioned above), and BH as usual gave it everything and both rightly up there. The new drafties were awesome too.

    Really shocked that Cheese got very little love, I felt he did a great job this year and he was in my top 5.

    Also I feel like its the Eurovision with me winning and hosting the next year. I look forward to my defence already.

    Thanks again for running it BH and now I'm off to celebrate by changing my daughters nappy.

    I thought my roster picks could have been better. I feel I went awry in this area, especially in the mid-point of the game. You on the other hand were excellent in both the roster picks and the writing so I think you definitely deserve it. I'm sure you will produce one hell of a strong title defence.

  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,562 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    what a modest fellah... speaking of Cheese he did get a mention in the last Slammy I'll post today (have to count up the other ones still)
    Best Newcomer

    1st: Necrominus
    2nd: LeeJM
    3rd: Cheese Wagstaff
    4th: Paulie

    only a top 4 as not everyone voted on that slammy (was not included in the pm sent around as it hadn't been used last year but was brought up in the discussion thread and some voted on it)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,096 ✭✭✭✭the groutch


    I was saying Booo-eakerjoe.

    I felt I had too many ladies for peoples liking and I had a lot of your roster from last year (Breeze, The VE brothers, Bischoff, Bayley)

    I guess Nakamura AND Ronda helped BH last year, and they are the new draft lucky charms.

    Well done Necro, great showing by all the new drafties so this was a toughie to call.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,773 ✭✭✭ShagNastii


    Thank to all who took part and a specials thanks to BH for running it so smoothly. The new blood really reenvigored the draft and will be certainly built on next year.

    Top three guys produced five star stuff. I was on the Beakerjoe train and was unsurprised he won. That Flair/Cesaro fued was brilliant.

    Was gutted I didn't get around to putting up my last two show. Feel I could have been there or there abouts. Gonna shoot for names next year. Invested early in Val/Santino to develop the pornstar in training but didn't have a monkeys how to write it funny.

    Edit: just seeing my votes came from best roster. Outside of the trio of Sting/Hogan/Vince is wasn't anything to write room about.

    Every year he is a do-zy of a pick.

    Credible, the first of his kind and works in so many eras.

    True, BH pushed him well 2 years ago and MNG did him justice


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,773 ✭✭✭ShagNastii


    Just seeing BH and MNG finished JOINT second. That's gas.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,804 ✭✭✭A Brad Maddox Guy


    Well deserved win and congratulations to Beakerjoe on achieving what you've been close to every time. I felt there was very little to choose from between the top 3 and none would have surprised me.

    Thanks BH for running a very enjoyable draft and I'm looking forward to what beaker brings to the table next year.


  • Registered Users Posts: 303 ✭✭Uncle Walt


    Congrats to Joe, very well deserved.. 10th Year of the Draft next year is an incredible achievement well done to everyone who took part over the years and made it the bittersweet, joyous, heartbreaking event it is every single year..


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,553 ✭✭✭✭paulie21


    Has anyone played every year in draft and who has the most wins?

    Here's a list of past winners in total, with the new champ now added.

    2008 - RebelRockChick
    2009 - flahavaj
    2010 - Gerard.C
    2011 - flahavaj
    2012 - Mr.Nice Guy
    2013 - Mr.Nice Guy
    2014 - Mr.Nice Guy
    2015 - Bounty Hunter
    2016 - beakerjoe

    If I'm not mistaken I think myself and Bounty Hunter may be the only players to have been involved in it every year.

    It wasn't always like it is now. In the first year for example there were no weekly shows and we just picked our roster and posted a PPV card.

    Also in the early years we held it in summer. It was gimmick that moved it to the now familiar time which was a great idea because if you think we had people struggle to finish in recent times, imagine the way it used to be in the summer with people going on holidays, doing exams etc. :pac:

    Jaysus, 4th! I'm absolutely delighted with that! Thanks to all who voted for me, makes it all worth it!

    Well done beakerjoe, totally deserved win. Brilliant write ups and feuds as well as a kick ass roster. Looking forward to see you come back, defend your crown while running the draft at the same time.

    Kudos again to BH for a terrific last few months, excellently run draft this year and enjoyed every minute of it. I intend to be back for 2017. Reminder on the phone set now for sign-up thread and all!
