    Think it was about 2 years ago I added the IWGP title in due to popular demand.

    Kenny is a pick Id love. Had no plans to draft him but had he lasted hed have been snapped up.

    I knew given the stip this round Bret wouldn't last for my pick, some great interesting picks


  • Registered Users Posts: 679 ✭✭✭daithi1989


    Have my pick waiting and ready to go - lets stand back and watch Guappa steal them on me!


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,713 ✭✭✭Mr. Guappa

    Christ, some amount of picks last night - absolutely mowing through Round 2.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,199 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Round 3 order up.

    No stipulations this next round.

    Sweet ! also damn knew I should have waited (only a few hours in the end) to see the draw order, could have put more thought into my last pick. That said mostly schweeet :D

    :P I might have held off then (probably wouldn't).

    I think generally after the 10th person has picked is a fair time to update the round order each time (assuming I'm available of course :pac: ).

    honestly, i feel guilty having such a good number for Round 3.

    If you feel so guilty, I will help ya with that burden

    Joys of randomisation I guess folks :/

    On the other hand, I feel there's a plethora of massive stars still available for everyone in round 3, which can only be a good thing I suppose.

    I'm nervous about this next pick, had a list of 5 drawn up, all still available. But one I really, really want.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,670 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    Apart from Team DIY (might have taken them round 1 if i'd known about the rd2 stip) I think I am now going to pass up the only other pick I had a angle thought up for in the next round of picks because of my early number. Changing plans is the fun of the draft though and with 15 instead of 20 this year there is some great talent available for everyone in rd3 this year especially after the stips.

  • Registered Users Posts: 20,753 ✭✭✭✭beakerjoe

    Stip free and with 10 more picks still on the board compared to other years it's like rd1 again.

    Very happy with my DIY pick to see so many had them in mind.

    I wanted to pick them a few years back but they did not meet the tag requirements at that stage.

    They have gone up in value each year. Johnny Gargano ended up standing tall as World Champ in my promotion last year.

    He, is my favourite current wrestler. His recent turn was fantastic, not only because it was done so well by all involved, but he has had the diverse range to pull it off.

    There's actually a few teams drafted even last year that probably don't qualify under the new addition to the tag rule this year. Not sure if that's good or bad, but I guess we can review after this year concludes.

    Has a change been made? I think I missed it if so.

    Aye. I removed the eligible promotions rule so anyone (as long as they have had a match somewhere and it can be proven) can be drafted, but to compensate I added this to the tag rule:



    Must have tagged together for at least 3 months in WWE, TNA, ROH,
    NJPW or anything historically going under the NWA banner.

    Basically so if someone wants to draft Fred the Red, the amazing daredevil from Manchester you can't just take Gunnersaurus alongside him unless they were a team in the above promotions.

    What defines 3 months under this rule?

    Is tagging 3 times in a three month period enough to make you a team? ie once in May, then once in June and once in July?

    Does a WWE feeder fed like NXT or FCW count as an eligible promotion?

    NXT counts, correct. Your above interpretation would be acceptable as long as they were straight tag team matches (not 6 man tags, mixed gender matches etc).

    As for other feds, bring me the evidence and I'll consider it case by case :)

    Haha gutted about round 3. I know there's gonna be loads of names left but almost definitely not the one I want most. It'll be at least 6 if not 7 o'clock before I can make my pick so feel free to take your time Al!


  • Registered Users Posts: 36,145 ✭✭✭✭SlickRic


    I always forget that Kane was born in Spain.

    Solid pick.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,199 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    :( Noooooo Alfred there goes my demon VS demon plans!

    Ah well. It was one of the plots I was throwing around in my head but he wasn't 'the' person I want.

    Apologies man, logical fit with Taker which was too good to turn down :pac:

    I still dont know who I want this round. A few names that come to mind would be good picks.
