    Awww... knew Austin was never getting to me but one can only dream. Rocky was on my list too.

    Kind of happy a few of the people who went before me were taken, could have so easily picked a few of them but I think the Roman Reigns experiment will keep me busier than any of those ever could

    Yeah, another on my list... not my first choice, mind.

    2 before me... (waits for heart to be broken by one)

    When I saw the stip my two ideas were Reigns and one other.

    Then when I saw the draft order I thought okay, this is my chance to pick someone I never had. So Brock, HBK, now picked Stone Cold and of course the Rock.

    Because of when he was active and because in theory he could still be active I had to go Rock.

    I'm surprised to see Reigns go this early! I actually had him down as somebody that would more than likely be available for me at #18

    As I said picking him, this is the 11th incarnation of the BWA i've had most of the big main eventers in the past and need something a bit different and as much as we might not have wanted it The Big Dog has headline the last 3 mania's running and will soon make it 4, Believe that!

    Delighted to get Stone Cold. He was the one guy I had in mind as the centrepiece of my show since the idea started forming in my head. Nice run of picks there in the last hour or so.

    Yeah, I'm sure beaker and FR will be along shortly. I'm here all night (working night shift :().

    I knew Austin was never getting to me, and I'm kinda glad he's gone tbh. If he had reached me I would have HAD to pick him....

    I am and I'm not. In terms of current bonified superstars he's certainly top of the heap. Like BH said he has headlined the last three WMs. A truly emotive character (to all fans) that will be whopper to write. BH will kill it.

    I know naming names is frowned upon. But somebody mentioned Enzo jokingly. He has serious Xpac hate and everybody hates him. IMO that also ups his value re: wrestlers you would want to write.

    Thanks for PM, Furious... Now... decision time.

    Pick made and PM sent. Torn between two in the end but went with Batista... he was my number one pick since the stip went up and delighted to get him.

    Picking Rollins is genius. He didn't even register on my radar. That's some good drafting right there.

    We're making great progress tonight. I'm happy with two solid picks planned. Hopefully MNG picks one saving me a coin-flip decision.

    I have a list with 20 names still available that I could use but there is one I am hoping to nab. Still plenty of HUGE names available

    I didn't receive a PM in my inbox. Maybe my PM was sent to a similarly named user? Anyway it's cool as I'm raring to go. I will be continuing my usual trend of my first pick being someone I've never used before. Will have it posted shortly.

    Knew Rollins was gone when furious said he needed to pm to clarify something. Hopefully 2nd choice falls

    Rollins was the other, with Reigns when I saw the stip.
