    Congratulations to our newcomers, it was close between White Wolf and wrestlemaniac, only 7 points seperating them..


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,964 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Next up we move to

    The What A Rush Award (Tag Team of the Year)

    HioMomA.gif

    Hotly contested award this year which is evident in the votes....


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,964 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    In Joint 3rd Place with 5 points EACH


    Briscoes (Necro)/Can-Am Express (Mr. Guappa)/New Samoans(wrestlemaniac)/Fabulous Freebirds(Mr. Guappa)/

    Two teams for Mr G here, my own Briscoes and a newly formed team of wrestlemaniacs all garnered top spot by various voters.



    In 2nd Place with 7 Points



    Road Warriors (Mr.Nice Guy)


    tumblr_n64mk52f3c1r89qoso1_500.gif


    Somewhat fittingly The Road Warriors who coined the catchphrase of this award get some love as well, well done MNG!



    AND IN JOINT 1ST place with 11 points EACH


    New Age Outlaws (Bounty Hunter)


    tumblr_pgie07vQGo1xpp27no1_400.gifv




    AND



    The World’s Greatest Tag Team (Mr.Nice Guy)


    tenor.gif?itemid=16573745


    Two of our draft veterans share top spot with two brilliant teams. Billy Gunn retains his top spot after winning it with Chuck last year. Great use of both teams, well done to BH and MNG on their first slammy of the year.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,964 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Let's move onto one of our new awards this year, shall we?

    The Isaac Yankem, DDS Award (Best Repackaged Superstar of the Year)

    31ad1aedbe1ccd50aef7274f884fe08586060c92.gifv


    Some notable mentions that also garnered votes…


    Heath Slater (beakerjoe)
    Hollywood John Cena (beakerjoe)
    Cabinet Corbin (Necro)



    beaker with some nice repackaging of Heath Slater and John Cena garnering him some love. I also gain a few votes for Baron Corbin's reimagining as a member of the new Cabinet. Cheers for the votes :)

    Glad I havent missed this, wasnt expecting it so early.

    Well done White Wolf. Great work.

    Happy to see WGTT get the win. They got my vote and had an excellent story arc with Von Erichs and played a part in the finale. Well done MNG


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,964 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    In 3rd place with 5 points

    ‘Big Greggy’ Valentine (Necro)


    R-Truth's tag team partner gave me a few votes to earn a podium spot, thanks again :D


    In 2nd place with 7 points

    Ricky Steamboat (Mr.Nice Guy)

    Ricky Steamboat's heel turn counts as a repackage in my eyes anyways, wasn't he a face most of his career? Anyways others agreed and earns MNG another podium position here.


    And in 1st place, our overwhelming winner of this inaugural award…

    With 17 points in total


    Fake News Barrett (wrestlemaniac)


    240m657.gif

    Well done BH, Dana v Vince was the spine of your show and you did a good job of making Dana sympathetic.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,964 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Next Up we honour those picks who we might not value at the time of drafting but it all begins to make sense once the write-ups are posted....

    Sherri Martel (The White Wolf)



    aYuFjpZ.gif?noredirect




    In Second Place with 8 points

    The Ultimate Warrior (Uncle Walt)



    source.gif


    Probably not so much for how he was used these votes but in picking up Warrior in *checks notes* ROUND 7 of the Draft, a fabulous pick at that late stage by Walt




    And in FIRST Place with 10 points



    Stu Hart (Mr. Guappa)


    tumblr_n8rvzj88Zr1sj4xr4o1_500.gifv


    A first slammy for Mr Guappa and a very well earned one with his Hart Family being a key component for GWA this year. Congrats!


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,611 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    If I didn’t get Dana or Dan white as he was called in the list of picks in the OP I wouldn’t have gone in even nearly the same direction with my roster.

    Stu was a well deserved winner, played a pivotal role despite being someone that isn’t always drafted.


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


    Well done Mr G. Stu Hart was so well presented and it was hard not to see the ruthless bastard I read about in Brets book. Great job and such a late pick too.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,964 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Moving on to the factions throughout the write-ups, some great efforts indeed...
