    News has just broken that MWA officials filled in their round 2 draft pick incorrectly!! After much anger at MWA HQ they have finally rectified that mistake and signed the proper Randy... Randy Orton!!

    Back again I come to see y'all with another round in the draft :)

    This time, as it's round 5 we'll be basing the order on average pick position

    Some of us need a leg up after a couple of bad rounds, and this is the way we try to level the playing field...

    Round Order Players Average pick position
    1 daithi1989 11.75
    2 brianregan09 11.25
    3 Mr. Nice Guy 10.75
    4 ShagNastii 10.50
    5 Bounty Hunter 10.25
    6 NITRO95 10.00
    7 PTH2009 9.50
    8 Lord TSC 9.00
    9 Necro 8.50
    10 Furious Red 7.50
    11 JP Liz V1 7.00
    12 Madeleine Salty Tour 6.75
    13 A Brad Maddox Guy 6.50
    14 Hammer of the Clods 6.25
    15 beakerjoe 5.25
    16 thebostoncrab 5.25

    Where the averages were level (only one instance of this), I randed between the players and whoever topped the pile got to go ahead of the other.


    Given we've had three out of the first four rounds as stip rounds too, I'm gonna give ye a round off.

    No stipulation here - draft who you like... within the usual rules of course :D

    Edit: Round order updated after I rechecked spreadsheet, apologies:o

    After realizing I am too tired and forgot there was a stip in place I quickly asked a more experienced head who I should go for.

    That was of course my 2nd round draft pick Vince McMahon

    Turns out my tiredness struck again as I mistook who he told me not to go for (and started cussing out) as the person he was suggesting and seeing as he mentioned his brother while I was zoning out I give you my 4th and 5th draft...

    Thought I was going to go a different way last round until I realized there was a stip in play, thought I would go that same direction this round when the option was somehow still available to me but my last pick kind of changed things and now those 4th and 5th draft picks just won't stop going on about someone who they cannot believe the draft gives them the opportunity to be reunited with... I am of course talking about my 6th draftee

    Players 5 - 8 can only draft a roster member who has had a match in New Japan Pro Wrestling
    Players 9 - 12 can only draft a roster member who has had a match in Original ECW (Not WWECW - no sirree that does not count here)
    Players 13 - 16 can only draft a roster member who has had a match in TNA.


    Got it? Let's go then!!

    Fusion Pro Wrestling is proud to announce a match for our upcoming PPV. We asked Kurt Angle to give us a list of dream opponents, from across the globe. We told him to pick someone that he wanted to test, that he believes could bring out the best in him, and someone that the fans would love to see go one on one with Angle.

    Kurt only gave us one name. And it was someone he already went toe to toe with when this guy was younger. Now that he has travelled the world and has been called the best technical wrestler today, Kurt wants to prove himself once more.

    Zack Sabre Jnr










    Oh, he isn't coming here alone. He is bringing with him a legend in the business, a man who is one of the toughest bastards in the history of wrestling. A man who when he heard that Kevin Owens wants a fight, he simply said: "I fight".

    As we move into the 6th round I found myself once again scrambling to make a draft selection and so decided to once again turn to the experts, the people already on my roster who have put together rosters before, be that WWE or AEW. Surprisingly both Vince & Cody Rhodes agreed for once as they replied saying they wanted more diversity.

    It was only later that I found out what they meant by this, Cody hoping I might recruit his wife to help start a woman's division and Vince looking for some buxom blondes for umm similar reasons.

    Don't know if they will be happy with my idea of diversity...






    I've got John Cena on my Roster... and now I've got he guy I've often heard described as The John Cena of New Japan, except then people would usually get annoyed and correct that person pointing out he is a far better wrestler.
