PWO 1988 - 1992 Draft Discussion

Recommended Posts

Should we have a time limit for picks? I'm thinking something generous, like 24 hours...

24 hours is good with an immediate pick upon return. Maybe when we get to the 20th round we'll go to 12 to finish up.

 

I was also thinking of a database thread to house everyone's rosters.

What's the start date we're aiming for? I'm going to be without communication from Nov. 13 to 18.

November 6th. I can always proxy for you if need be at that point.

 

That works, if the draft is still going on at that point I'll set up a proxy. Now back to figuring out who the heck to pick first.

It's a blessing and a curse. You'll set the pace for the draft with that pick for sure.

 

It's quite the challenge, not only who to pick first but in trying to set up a potential plan since my second pick is at the end of Round 2. But them's the breaks, just have to figure out how I want to play it.

I think the best part about this is the range... A 1989 Hogan is a lot different than. 1992 Hogan. Hell even a 1988 Barry Windham is way different than a 1992 Windham. A lot of scenarios to think about in regards to drafting a year.

Put together an initial draft board to work from... I have over 200 names on there.

 

Some teams I was thinking that may be troublesome for picks are like a Power and Glory. Yeah they had hype as a tag team but Hercules had a superior singles career before that tag team so they'd need to be separate. How about Tanaka and Kato? Are they a team or is it Tanaka and Diamond?

 

All interesting little things to consider.

In Tanaka and Diamond's case, I guess it depends...do you want the Orient Express or Badd Company. Unless you decide to go with Tanaka & Saito as the Orient Express rather than with Kato/Diamond.

Thank you to whomever created that tool.

 

Draft orders have been done... double check if you think I have made a mistake. Everything looked good to me but I am tired.

 

Draft started Monday morning @ 8am.

 

Keep up the fun conversation here if you'd like... I am sure everyone is keeping their cards close...

 

I will go on record and say 1992 is a WEIRD year for lot of guys... some great youngsters starting while older guard fading... lots of fun people to look into and pick from.

See, with Power & Glory, I feel like you should be able to draft a 1990 or 1991 version of them. Same with 1988 or 1989 version of The Twin Towers. If a team was together for over a year, that seems like a legit pick.

 

If that makes everything too muddled, that's fine, but that feels like a different situation than The Megapowers, Megabucks, Mega Maniacs, Jim Duggan & Nikolai Volkoff, The Enforcers, etc...

I agree to an extent.. Savage and Hogan are so much more than a tag team plus their tag encounters can be counted on one hand... perhaps that the is the equation behind it. If the team had more than 20 matches... that makes them a team?

I think a distinct number of matches is the answer for sure. But a little higher, maybe 50?

 

That solidifies Power & Glory, Twin Towers, Enforcers, etc... gets rid of any makeshift teams I believe.
