    Im still not sure what to do with "The Man" yet, a few ideas for opponents in my head.

    Pick up, PM sent to Ric.

    Delighted with Sheamus, thought he might be nabbed at the last minute on me, had eyes on drafting him every year since I started playing.

    I always forget that Kane was born in Spain.

    Solid pick.

    :eek:

    You always learn something new in the draft

    Sheamus is a great wrestler, much underappreciated by the fans I feel.


  • Registered Users Posts: 36,171 ✭✭✭✭SlickRic


    Pick made. PM sent.

    Couldn't resist the now classic pick of Misawa and Kobashi. They fit the feel I think I'm going for.

    Was actually trying to not pick them again this year... too many times. With you up again now and no doubt adding another main eventer, I’m already liking the look of your roster this year.

    More luck than skill this year so far!

    I wouldn't have picked Misawa/Kobashi, but there is a feel to my roster that I want to aim for that they fit with.

    Will have pick up shortly just have a bit of work at the moment


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,214 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    So when I put up the draw and had a think about my options for this round it went:

    Austin
    Punk
    Rock

    In that order. Didn't mind which one. Delighted to get him on board.

    Those 3 on my list with 2 others, and I pick 6th in this round...

    Pick made and hopefully pm sent! (Not used to using boards with phone)


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,672 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    If I hadn't had SCSA and / or Punk before I might have gone in those directions but (I could be wrong I have before given how many years i've done this) like HBK I don't think I've ever booked The Rock before so I'm looking forward to it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 679 ✭✭✭daithi1989


    And after that pick.. I now have 1 on my list, with 1 pick left ahead of me! Depending who Liz picks will determine how long it will take me to draft!

    Liz does not always take the obvious next choice, more so her personal favs so you may be in luck.

    Hogan can be great fun to write for and if I didn't get HBK I might have gone his way for my main event feud. Obviously he was a massive face but he is just a natural heel to write for in modern times imo.


  • Registered Users Posts: 36,171 ✭✭✭✭SlickRic


    Rollins/Guerrero, Rollins/Owen or Owen/Guerrero would all be dream matches to be honest.


  • Registered Users Posts: 679 ✭✭✭daithi1989


    5 for 5!! Gonna have to go back to the drawing board! Will have the pick up later this afternoon.

    Eddie was initially my back up for Sheamus actually, then I realised he was born in the US so wasn't eligible!

    Rollins v Eddie would be a feud that could work a few ways too. Face vs Face, Heel vs Face, Face vs Heel. It would be a match up I would have fun bringing to life. Well played Liz

    This game will wreck your head if you set plans in stone.

    I have a loos eplan, with inter-changable characters. Some fit my roles better than others. Had I not got Becky, Rhonda would fit the bill...... had they both gone, another female would have taken their spot.

    Becky is just the best suited.

    Ive a few people I can choose this round in my head, one would be ideal but its not the end of the world for me if I dont get them.

    Happy to get Aliester Black in. I feel he can be a modern day Undertaker like persona in the WWE if given a chance.

    A fantastic wrestler to boot too.

    on my own picks, I just think it would have been stupid not to try and book Lesnar/Austin. i can't remember it being done before (though it probably was), and it's something to have a lot of fun with, particularly because of how the Lesnar character has recently evolved.

    Yep, I learned the hard way my first game when I subbed in. Had a specific plan in mind and not really planning for back ups. When my wanted picks went then I was scrambling like mad to try and change things.

    Loose and interchangeable is the way to go to avoid head melting!

    Austin walked out before their TV match was due to happen.

    Yeah I looked at your roster and saw BH take Rock - immediately said to myself - 'Ric is going for Austin, it's what I'd do with Lesnar there'

    Makes sense.

    i meant in PW Draft history!


  • Registered Users Posts: 679 ✭✭✭daithi1989


    Went back to an old reliable. Not sure what I'm going to do with him just yet, but he was easy to write for 2 yrs ago!

    PM sent to paulie for next round also.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,859 ✭✭✭✭paulie21


    Have pick in will add pic later. Could someone PM the next person please


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,672 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    Ric Flair simply had to snapped up this round, still a good few names I would say the same about still knocking about though. Don't think Brock has faced SCSA in the draft. I had Brock Bryan in the BWA a few years before the WWE did.

    oh and pm sent to Guappa
