    Wrestling On Earth Fantasy Draft: Round Three

    Brad’s pick: CHRISTIAN

    Brad:

    Christian is a seasoned pro wrestler who has been involved in the pro wrestling business for over 10 years, during which time he’s been a top guy in both TNA and WWE. Christian has one of the most entertaining styles, that can go well with pretty much anyone he faces – I like to say he could give a broomstick a great match.

    He is a multiple time world champion, has competed with the best in the business and is also a very good talker. In recent years, I feel he has never really been given the opportunity to shine in the long-term and I feel that Christian is the perfect guy to work with Daniel Bryan as top faces of the company.

    Wrestling On Earth Fantasy Draft: Round Two

    Brad’s pick: GEDO (non-wrestler)

    Brad:

    While not as well kown as Paul Heyman or Vince McMahon, since 2011 Gedo (whose real name is Keiji Takayama) has been involved in the best booking in pro wrestling, making stars out of people such as Kazuchicka Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi & Prince Devitt to name just a few. He understands that the focus of pro wrestling should be about having strong polar opposites on the baby face and heel side.

    In the body of matches he’s put together, it has not just been the top match being great, but every match down the card that is great as well. He has an ability to make you want things for stars, such as Okada winning the belt back and Devitt going for the title. Daniel Bryan and my other picks as the top stars in the company lead well to the booking style of Takayama. Continue reading

    Wrestling On Earth Fantasy Draft: Introduction and Round One

    Everyone thinks they could run their own wrestling company, but we’re determined to prove it, with the Wrestling On Earth Fantasy Draft!

    Making their picks in the following order will be:

    Here’s the scenario that was presented to them:

    “With a financial backer, you will be starting a brand new promotion with a small TV deal (similar to TNA’s), with your goal being to be a profitable company that stays in business as long as possible.

    You will each draft a total of 12 performers (including one female wrestler and one non-wrestler) over the course of 12 rounds (in the spirit of John Cena movies, obviously).”

    The rules are as follows:

    • Only active wrestlers are allowed.
    • Wrestlers from anywhere in the world or any promotion are allowed.
    • You can only pick as many as THREE male WWE wrestlers and THREE male TNA wrestlers. After that, you must pick wrestlers outside of WWE and TNA.
    • Similar to the NFL fantasy having kicker and defense, at least one of the twelve picks MUST be a female wrestler and at least one MUST be a non-wrestler (i.e. an announcer/booker/agent/whatever you want). Neither the female wrestler or the non-wrestler will count as one of your three WWE picks or three TNA picks (so you can have three WWE male wrestlers and three TNA male wrestlers, and still choose a female wrestler or non-wrestler from WWE and TNA).
    • Tag teams will count as one pick, but the tag team must be current and you must intend to use them as a tag team (i.e. you couldn’t pick The Shield with the intention of using Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns as singles wrestlers).

    So now we’ve got that out the way, let’s see who the first round picks are! Continue reading
