Boards PW Draft 2021 - Official Picks Thread

    Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,988 Mod ✭✭✭✭

    Welcome to the Official Picks Thread for the 2021 Boards PW Draft!!!


    There will be 15 rounds of drafting. Those signed up will be randomly assigned a position from 1 - 20 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 *may* see picks organized based on particular factors.

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


    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, AEW, 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
    All incarnations of the WWE Women's Championship are also considered as World Titles

    (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. Not including AEW World Championship just yet - it would only affect three stars all of whom have held world titles in other promotions)

    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

    - 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.

    A Werewolf themed PW Draft needs to kick off in style, with some power roles to boost your village.

    Tears of joy and despair await as the 20 players wait to find out their fate in the first round of the most must see PW Draft of 2021.

    Without further adieu, the Draft Round Order:
    1. The White Wolf
    2. JP Liz V1
    3. Necro
    4. Bounty Hunter
    5. connemara man
    6. Mr. Nice Guy
    7. Hello 2D Person Below
    8. SlickRic
    9. daithi1989
    10. thebostoncrab
    11. Mr. Guappa
    12. beakerjoe
    13. ShagNastii
    14. paulie21
    15. bennyl10
    16. wrestlemaniac
    17. A Brad Maddox Guy
    18. brianregan09
    19. Uncle Walt
    20. NITRO95

    And now to the stipulation. As I said, we want only power roles here, so therefore your Draft Pick(s) in this round must have displayed power and panache at the very top of their craft... which means....

    Draft Picks in this round must have Main-Evented Wrestlemania

    Run-Ins or appearances as managers don't count, nope no sirree. They have to have competed in a match in the Main Event of one of 36 editions of the Grandest Stage of Them All. And that goes for tag teams too - both must have appeared in a Wrestlemania main event - whilst being eligible as per the other rules of the game as well.

    This ensures that every single person will have a bonafide, money making MACHINE for their first draft pick.

    I will now PM The White Wolf as they are up first, and they then have 24 hours to make their pick, before PMing the next person on the list.

    Good luck everyone - and let the games begin!!

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,123 ✭✭✭The White Wolf

    Picked first....never happens. :pac: Genuinely tough one but I'll have to go with Stone Cold Steve Austin as my first pick.

  • Registered Users Posts: 84,842 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1

    I will take The Rock

  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,988 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro

    For our first pick NCW will pick a legend we have never had before.

    But will it be the red and yellow that shows up in NCW....

    OR - The Black and White?



  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,627 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter

    Honestly don't have a picks list this year but based off the stip (even though really 90% of the usual rd1 picks probably apply) I could not stop thinking about one potential pick...

    That's right my 1st round draft pick this year is Mr Wrestlemania himself, The showstopper, The Heartbreak Kid....

    Shawn Michaels


    11 different years HBK was awarded the PWI match of the year, dude is definitely one of the first names in the discussion for best of all time and now he is in the BWA 2021 roster

    Legit, in my opinion, the most talented to ever do it.

    Could kick your ass, could make you laugh, could be the goof and could talk you into the building for a PPV.

    And as crisp and real in the ring as anyone ever.

    Your American hero, and mine, Kurt Angle.

    Over halfway through Round 1 and it's time for another draw reveal :D

    Left to pick in Round 1:
    A Brad Maddox Guy
    Uncle Walt

    In the game of Werewolf it's always handy to have a partner to bounce your thoughts and ideas off. They're known as Masons and generally share a private room elsewhere so they can discuss things free of judgement on the game thread.

    Kind of like Tag Teams really. And Tag Team Champions are the ultimate Masons


    It's all about that Tag Team Gold in this round... as

    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.

    And of course, it's sort of a double stipulation - because the round order will be REVERSED for this coming round, in typical PW Draft tradition.

    So the order will be:
    1. NITRO95
    2. Uncle Walt
    3. brianregan09
    4. A Brad Maddox Guy
    5. wrestlemaniac
    6. bennyl10
    7. paulie21
    8. ShagNastii
    9. Mr. Guappa
    10. beakerjoe
    11. thebostoncrab
    12. daithi1989
    13. SlickRic
    14. Hello 2D Person Below
    15. Mr. Nice Guy
    16. connemara man
    17. Bounty Hunter
    18. Necro
    19. JP Liz V1
    20. The White Wolf
