Boards PW Draft 2020 - Official Picks & Write up thread

    Welcome to the Official Picks Thread for the 2020 Boards PW Draft!!!


    There will be 15 rounds of drafting. Those signed up will be randomly assigned a position from 1 - 16 for round 1.

    While the rules are all listed below, I'd like to remind people that most rounds will be random, though some will see picks organized based on particular factors.

    A quick synopsis of the rules again for easy access for the players:

    The Rules:

    Draft Order
    The order people make their picks is decided at random, via a completely unbiased List Randomizer website ( There will be a number of rounds in which the drawing order will not be random. These will be made clear at the start of these rounds.

    Tag Teams:

    Tag Teams come as a package so for example if you want the Authors of Pain then you don't have to pick Rezar one round and then Akam the next. The rules for tag teams are as follows:

    - Cannot have a world champion in them ie no DX or Hart Foundation
    - Must have tagged together for at least 3 months in WWE, TNA, ROH, NJPW or anything historically going under the NWA banner.
    - Intergender tag teams not allowed
    - Members of factions, ie Wade Barrett and Rusev, are not deemed valid picks as they are not classed as legit tag teams under the criteria for the game.
    - 5 tag teams is the maximum amount of teams for each roster.

    World Titles:

    World titles are considered as the following:
    WWE, World Heavyweight Title/WCW, TNA, NWA and IWGP world championship

    (Note: For the benefit of the game as a whole and to reflect the realistic loss in prestige of the NWA Title, only holders of the NWA Title up until the WCW World Championship came into use will be regarded as World Champions for the purposes of the game. )

    Eligible Promotions:
    Any - it has all changed since last year. If you want to draft Bandylegs McGillicuddy from Ireland - as long as you can categorically prove he has had a pro wrestling match - he is yours!
    The only exception to this rule is in relation to tag teams - please see above.

    Time Frame:
    None. The old pre 1970’s rule remains abolished.
    There will also be a celeb round where celebs who have appeared on wrestling TV are eligible for picks.

    - people who would be considered Celebs more so than wrestlers are only eligible to be drafted in the special celeb round and not in any other round, unless otherwise specified.

    - Managers, commentators and female wrestlers are eligible if people wish to pick them. Once they are drafted - they’re yours!

    Trades are allowed from Round 5 onwards but you are limited to 5 trades each. When a trade occurs it is superstars you are trading, not a pick in the draft, so you must be able to make the draft pick before they are eligible to be drafted, i.e all normal rules such as 5 tag team picks limit are still in effect.

    Trades may be vetoed by those running the game in order to ensure a fair balance is maintained. However, this is extremely unlikely to occur for the vast majority of trades, and will only be discussed in situations where there is suspicion of other matters influencing the game.

    Stip rounds:

    There are a number of stipulation rounds lined up. Make sure to read each carefully, and if you're unsure what you're meant to do, ask in the discussion thread and verify your pick with an organiser.

    Missed Picks

    The draft runs under a 24 Hour rule. In other words, you have 24 hours to make your pick from the moment the person prior to you has made theirs. This will be enforced so as not to slow down the game. If you think you are going to miss your window, PM someone a list of who you'd like and they can make your pick for you. Should you miss your window, your pick will be pushed back to the end of that round.

    Write Up Rules

    Once the picks are made and rosters are assembled, the write ups commence. In the past, it has usually been a rule of 4/5 shows (weekly shows with a PPV at the end) is the maximum amount of shows a player could post. However, to reflect the dwindling efforts of the players to commit to a huge body of work/time in reading others work, it was changed to a maximum of 4 posts.

    Now comes another change, and let's see how it goes.

    Players are limited to a maximum of 2 posts.

    One is for your company statement, to outline your roster - the major players, feuds etc. This is not mandatory.

    The second post is your match card. Your ultimate fantasy match ups as drafted by you.

    Due to posting limitations re: images, if you wish to extend your PPV across your two posts this is permitted.

    Note - Rules may be amended during the contest to help run the game smoother if it's felt this is necessary but we will aim to ensure everyone is kept up to date if this has to happen.

    The First Round Order will be up at around 7pm. Stay tuned, and get ready!!

    Finalised Rosters:

    Welcome to the most must-see PW Draft of all time... for 2020 at least :D

    Without further adieu, allow me to present the first round order....

    Tears of joy and despair will be shed as people learn their fate... and perhaps I have a little stipulation for y'all too...

    Round 1 Drafting Order:
    1. Madeleine Salty Tour
    2. daithi1989
    3. Lord TSC
    4. brianregan09
    5. Furious Red
    6. Mr. Nice Guy
    7. JP Liz V1
    8. ShagNastii
    9. Hammer of the Clods
    10. NITRO95
    11. Bounty Hunter
    12. A Brad Maddox Guy
    13. PTH2009
    14. thebostoncrab
    15. beakerjoe
    16. Necro

    And now... the stipulation

    It's all about the gold in this round.



    Only those who have won a Tag Team Title in WWE are eligible to be drafted. Developmental does not count, it must have been on one of the main brands - Raw, Smackdown... or NXT.

    But that's not all - the following round will be reverse order, in keeping with draft tradition. So fear not if you got a low number in this round - you will have a high one in Round 2.

    I will now PM Hello 2D and inform him of his pick, if others could perform the same courtesy to whoever is next in the list we can ensure smooth and mainly seamless picks :)

    Throughout the years we have seen many classic scenes in wrestling involving the law, arrests and assaults.

    This round's stipulation is simple:

    Superstars eligible for drafting MUST have had trouble with the law on screen.... OR off.

    So if your guy or gal got banged up in kayfabe or in real damn life - they can be picked.

    Have fun :D

    The BWA is proud the welcome a truly global name in pro wrestling. If I was to ask my class of 10 year old kids I teach in Taiwan to name a wrestler they would only be able to name this one person... and then they would also go "doo doo doo doo" after saying his name, Of course I mean...

    We go to the offices of Fusion Pro Wrestling CEO as he is interviewing wrestlers looking for that all important first draft pick:

    “....and that’s why, Mr. Crab, I believe I can be the new face of Fusion Pro Wrestling and the man to bring back the glory of the company, especially as a former tag team champion!”


    “......get the hell out of my office Disco Inferno.

    God damnit, why are so many time wasters coming to my office? I know things haven’t been great lately for Fusion Pro Wrestling, but we were a company that dominated for 3 years. We were once the second highest rated company, and the third the year we went with an all women’s show! Surely there is someone out there that sees our potential, who sees the vision, and wants to be given the ball to lead the company into 2020?

    God damnit, someone grab me something to drink.”

    “Excuse me, I heard you are looking for something to make you the number one wrestling company? I believe I have what it takes, and I can take care of that drink.... with a little bit of the bubbly”

    I consulted my first round draft pick about who I should pick next:

    Me: John I've got the safe option, a big name I could pit against you for a big money main event... or I have someone I am tempted by, who although he is a former ECW & WWE world champion and even appeared on WCW TV I dunno if you'd want me to keep going and choose him


    Me: *Shurgs* ok John, You might regret this but I'll chance leaving your opponent untill a later round and take...

    Rules Update:

    Folks apologies I missed this when posting the rules but I've had a query and will update the world title rule:
    World titles are considered as the following:
    WWE, World Heavyweight Title/WCW, TNA, NWA, IWGP world championship and all incarnations of the WWE Women's Championship

    (Note: For the benefit of the game as a whole and to reflect the realistic loss in prestige of the NWA Title, only holders of the NWA Title up until the WCW World Championship came into use will be regarded as World Champions for the purposes of the game. )

    Apologies this is not a change, just an omission on my part :o

    Monday Night Grappling welcomes to our roster someone we have never had before. A figure that polarises opinions, but what can't be denied is that he's one of the biggest stars of the modern era and a damn good in-ring performer.



    ...Roman Reigns!

    He was arrested in 2010 for a drink-related incident.


    Excited to have him on board my roster and it affords me the chance to do a match-up that I don't think has been done before in the draft.


    Monday Night Grappling roster (thus far):

    1. Hulk Hogan
    2. Roman Reigns
