PW Boards Draft 2022 - Picks Thread

    Welcome to the 2022 Boards PW Draft!!

    There will be 15 rounds of drafting. Those signed up will be randomly assigned a position from 1 - 12 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:

    Rules:


    Draft Order

    The order people make their picks is decided at random, via a completely unbiased List Randomizer website (random.org). 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 (all versions), World Heavyweight Title/WCW, TNA*, NWA**, IWGP world championship - and for the first time ever - the AEW 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 TNA Title, only TNA title reigns up until they unified the Impact World Championship with the GFW Global Championship in 2017 count.


    (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


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



    Trades:

    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.


    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.

    Our official player roster for the 2022 PW Draft is below:

    1. Mr. Nice Guy
    2. Bounty Hunter
    3. beakerjoe
    4. Necro
    5. Hello 2D Person Below

    ROUND ONE - ROUND OF HONOR

    Thought this would be an appropriate tribute to one of the promotions that suffered because of the pandemic, but played a HUGE part in developing the careers of some of the absolute best talent out there presently, and indeed in the past:

    NB: Only those who have made an appearance in ROH can be drafted for Round 1....

    So without further adieu, the player list... who's gonna get that coveted numero uno for 2022....

    1. Bounty Hunter
    2. The White Wolf
    3. wrestlemaniac
    4. daithi1989
    5. Mr. Nice Guy
    6. beakerjoe
    7. JP Liz V1
    8. Necro
    9. NITRO95
    10. Hello 2D Person Below
    11. Mr Guappa
    12. Furious Red
    13. brianregan09

    Those at the bottom of the list should not feel too bad though... Round 2 is going to be reverse order (and may indeed have another stip attached, to be revealed later)

    I will now PM Bounty Hunter to inform him he is first up and then once he makes his pick he will PM next in the list, etc etc...

    That's right! I Was half considering making an OSW boys stable type roster or going with a fun theme when picking and not taking this as seriously this year but no.1 in the draft order and only 12 combatants which means everyone should have a top notch roster really.

    So if I am going to take this serious I need to a top draft pick who will give me options later on. I need someone people could argue as the GOAT but that I have not booked a million times already and of course someone who appeared at an ROH event.

    So umm Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!


    Here he is in ROH

    and the pic below that is incase people need a reminder of the physical specimen he was in his prime when he was still The Stylin’, profilin’, limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin’ n’ dealin’ son of a gun!




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


    Well I was debating when I'd have to pull the trigger on this one, but given he's my reigning Heavyweight Champion in All Star Bruisers, I must pick first the one and only "Hangman" Adam Page. There'll be no shirking of drinking responsibilities in my company Cowboy.




  • Registered Users Posts: 1,060 ✭✭✭wrestlemaniac


    I'll draft CM Punk



  • Registered Users Posts: 679 ✭✭✭daithi1989

    After a tight negotiation, All Star Bruisers have signed someone who has arguably been lost in the discussion for greatest living and actively performing wrestler. While NJPW has experienced a tough couple of years due to the pandemic, ASB will provide the perfect platform for this man to make a statement. Our second pick is the [B]Switchblade Jay White[/B].

    The last time this man was on Monday Night Grappling he stole our World Title and left the company, but he did at least contribute to our first ever Draft win. After difficult negotiations, an agreement has been reached and all is forgiven. Please welcome back after a ten year absence...


    ...Shawn Michaels.

    Mr. Michaels has assured us that he is a changed man. That he has found religion. He has promised us no trouble this time. No trouble at all...
