    Probably easy to guess the top three :D


    But coming in a very respectable THIRD PLACE, with 77 points in total:


    BEAKERJOE!!!


    Congratulations to Joe on magnificent polling.


    But that brings us down to TWO...

    Which means, it is between the reigning champ Mr.Nice Guy and Bounty Hunter, also a former champion.

    Who will be the champ?

    Will it be the five time, five time, FIVE TIME CHAMP of PW Boards Drafting fame, Mr. Nice Guy?

    OR....


    Will it be the former champ BH, another veteran of the PW Boards Draft, and already holder of the Best Roster Award for 2020....

    It's also only fair to state that in SECOND PLACE:


    Mr.Nice Guy - 78 POINTS!!


    And thus concludes the 2020 PW Boards Draft. I hope you all enjoyed partaking as much as I did in running in it.

    Till next year though, say hello to your new Champion...

    Almost didn't take part in the draft this year for the first time as I didn't think I'd have the time!

    Cheers Necro and thanks to anyone who voted for the BWA. Great standard all round this year imo

    Congratulations Winners and Thanks Necro

    Firstly congrats to BH. He got top spot for me in each of the 3 big categories. For my money he deserved the top prize. Is this your second or third win?

    Delighted with best write ups. Its the one prize I always want to win so thank you. The cherry on top is that Flair got best bady guy and Adam Cole won Superstar of the year. I had a blast writing the feud, with my other half providing great input on how to book certain parts ( it was her idea to book the Baker heel turn and provided the oral examination line).

    Congrats to all the winners, esp BH, a deserving Le Champione.

    Thanks Necro, loved this game. Wouldnt be against a game in September if we are still on lockdown.

    We shall see. Depends on if the Fantasy Wrestling league makes a reappearance this year (hint hint MNG ) :D

    Well done to one and all. I've really enjoyed 'hanging out' with ye all the last while, a bunch of good eggs.

    Fairest of f*cks Bounty Hunter, worthy winner (got my number 1 vote in each of the main categories). Gallant efforts MNG and Beaker pushing a stellar roster like Bounty's so close.

    And thanks to our very own Vinny Mc for running a great show, I've thoroughly enjoyed the last couple of months.

    2nd and given I've been involved every year thats not exactly unbelievable but I'm delighted with it

    No lie but as soon as I read your build up show and the Flair/Cole write up I thought I was playing for 2nd place this year.

    I think most of my top 3 votes this year went for you, MNG and TBC but I could be mistaken given how many times I changed my mind before finally sending them in

    I just relaised BH won while having a newborn.

    I was in the same position for my first win. Its some feat. Inhuman stuff writing so well while caring for your other half and new puddin. Im even more impressed.

    Cheers man, the draft has kept me sane (cheers again Necro) as it gave me a much needed distraction the past few months (lil man is now 3mths). The great thing with the draft was how it was running for so long while never needing a massive amount at any one time, spread the work out, doing a small bit each time I got a chance.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,198 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Here's a question actually. Has Boards ever had an E-Fed or is the Draft the closest that we come to it?

    I see some forums have huge buy-in to E-Feds, though it is a lot of work that being said. But something to ponder as there is some serious quality of writers here, very very creative.


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


    Is their a list of former winners handy anywhere?

    Yeah I recall something like that a few years back, I think some people signed up to book RAW one after the other but I don't remember if it lasted too long.

    I really enjoyed this year's Draft, thanks for running it Necro. It was great to see so many still involved with write-ups & voting. I'd be tempted to create a Boards Draft mod for TEW, fill the rosters with some undrafted names & sim everything for a year to see how the computer books us.

    I think BH had BWA Raw and SD a few years back, I remember reading it

    There were other incarnations of it and this probably aged badly but...

    Boards Wrestling Entertainment

    think the original run was in 2009 and if you check the hot links thread you will at least find the link to the original discussion thread for the folks booking it. iirc you had to book within the limits of the WWE's current roster, for example if someone got injured in real life you had to write them out of the shows etc so as to show we could in fact book it better than the current product


    Ha looking at that list of former champs, looks like I am the guy you call to dethrone MNG when he's on a run


  • Registered Users Posts: 679 ✭✭✭daithi1989


    (Heel Turn coming)

    How dare ye not vote for DPW to win!! 3D of the top of a ladder.. Gargano goes through the roof of Hell in a Cell.. And DPW goes home empty handed?!


    Only kidding - having read all the other entries, I knew I wasn’t going to challenge! Congrats to all the winners!


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,552 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Congrats, BH. A well deserved win.

    While a second three-peat would have been nice, you deserve the title. Great roster amassed and very thoughtful, well-written shows.

    I'm delighted to make it on to the podium. Thanks to those who voted.

    And hats off to Necro on how he ran the game. Very impressive level of participation with the votes received, especially with Boards moving at the pace of Hans Moleman the last few days.

    Funny how we nearly didn't have it this year and yet it went on to be imo one of the best ones yet.

    The writing was indeed great. There was one or two rosters that I didn't care for on paper but the way they were booked warmed me to them.
