    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

    Had no hope of Flair, but had he lasted to me Id probably just select him. Had a ball writing for him as a face the first year I won it and he is simply to fun to write for to pass by at round 3 (though to be fair to Flair (Hi Bobby) he wasnt eligible for the first 2 rounds)

    i meant in PW Draft history!

    Sorry, I meant while it never happened in the draft, it never happened in real life too. It almost did but the fact it doidnt makes it a fantasy match up that cant be passed up.

    Depending on the speed of the rest of this round, I hope to have Round 4's order up this eve or tomorrow before I go to work.

    Will there be a stip... I wonders....

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Is it weird I always look forward to stip rounds more? Makes the picking more fun.

    Can't, I've my spreadsheet on the laptop :(

    Really pleased to add Randy Savage to my roster. Leaves me a lot of flexibility when choosing an opponent for him, and I'm thinking he could be cool to write for.


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


    That was a hard choice.

    A few picks I wanted, then some I had no intention of drafting despite the big names but were almost too good to turn down.

    I wanted Cody though, as a chaarcter hes flexible and hes doing fantasticly well outside of WWE.

    His Brothers a nice bonus though.

    God damn it :(

    Hadnt set it in stone, but I was leaning towards a Hunter/Cody/Omega feud :(

    Great bang for your buck pick there. Two super talents. Goldie is an underrated one for sure. It always pick him.

    It’s interesting to see a wrestlers stock grow and fall within the draft year. Cody was a much wanted transfer last year but he is even more a big deal this year with AEW n all that.

    AJ is great value at this stage. Couldnt believe he was still available.

    Went with who I originally wanted but cant help thinking I let AJ slip.

    MNGs roster is seriously stacked


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


    Yeah I was amazed he wasn't grabbed in the first round in all honesty. Huge pick this deep in round 3.


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


    Round 4 up, stip up.

    Stipulation: Only superstars who have competed for ECW OR WWECW are eligible in this round.

    Round 5 will be an average order round folks, so if you've had a bad run then round 5 is the one for you I guess. Myself and Ric seem attached at the hip!

    And yeah, I cheated a little to get Deadpool in :P


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,177 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7


    The second round stip stopped me picking DIY and AJ.

    Could have selected AJ and Okada but they have enough real history.

    I have excel sheets of rosters for most of the years I've taken part, currently using last year's to help figure out potential picks. Thought it was interesting the jump certain picks have made especially considering reduced participation. For starters females; 3 women have gone in the 1st two rounds this year, it was Rd 4 before one was taken last year and it wasn't until Rd 6 that another was picked (three went in that round & surprisingly none of them were Trish Stratus).

    Also due to the stip Sheamus & Tyson Kidd have had a huge jump from Rd 6 to Rd 2


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,824 ✭✭✭ShagNastii


    Excuse the delays guys. I’m just going to Pat Shortt in the Olympia. Will get my pick up on the way home. 9/10

    Sorry.

    I think I'm skewing the women's stats! I've taken two of the three picked so far this year, and last year it was me who picked the one in Rd 4 (Becky) and one of the ones in Rd 6 (Asuka).

    Ah no, its crystal clear to be honest. I just spotted a few gems and wanted to be sure where I stood.

    Folks, apologies, slight amendment to the wording of the stip (was pointed out to me via PM, thank you kind mysterious soul).

    Updated above and on the Picks Thread.

    What was wrong with original wording?

    It might have been a little misleading for some. Apologies if so.

    So they didn't have to participate in a match, just make an appearance?
