Hello, everyone. Always thank you for spending a few with me today.
Well my friends, Draft day is upon us. I will keep things short and brief for everyone. I have listed below the Raw, Smackdown and ECW rosters.
There has been one small change. Due to Ben dropping out, that leaves us one person shy. I will step in for his place in the draft.
I have also received many complaints about the five-minute limits for the picks. So in order to make things go faster, it will go from five to three minutes.
I will be drafting last and if by chance, I win. The prizes will be awarded to the second-, third-, and fourth-place finishers. I have been asked a few times what the prizes are. They are wrestling memorabilia prizes.
That is all I will say, I wouldn’t want to ruin the surprises.
The draft is 11 a.m. Eastern time in the U.S. I have reposted the rules again; please review before drafting.

On the day of the draft, each person has three minutes to make his or her pick. If that time passes you will move to the bottom of the list for that round.
- If you miss your turn, the second time that you are up we will move on to the next round. You will be able to make that pick that you missed from the left-overs. You will only have three minutes on your second turn to choose someone.
- After every round we will take a little breather. That way I can eliminate who was drafted from the list for the next round.
- You can pick anyone you like of the Raw, Smackdown, or ECW line-ups. It can be a wrestler, commentator, or ring announcer. Just about everyone will be up for grabs in the draft.
After this next upcoming Pay Per View the fun will start.
Here is how the scoring will work:
- If your pick wins by pin or submission, you will get 50 points.
- If your pick wins by DQ or count-out you get 25 points.
- If you pick a non-wrestler, all they have to do is appear on TV and you will get 15 points.
- If your wrestler makes a Pay Per View card, or your non-wrestler is shown on the Pay Per View, you will get 25 points no matter what. If your wrestler wins they will get double the points depending how the match is won.
I will be posting the scores on every Saturday. You will get points if your picks win on Raw, Smackdown, Superstars, Ecw, or a Pay Per View.
If you would like to trade a wrestler with another member, you must do so on an open forum when I post the scores, that way everyone will see it.
If your guy gets hurt, you will have the option to send him into the pool of left-overs from the draft and take someone new. This also must be done when I post the scores.
If someone decides to drop out, his or her wrestlers will be up for grabs in the pool on a first-come-first-served basis. Please PM me if you decide to drop out of the contest. When I post the new wrestlers available, then, and only then, can you put dibs on them.
If that does happen, a person must sacrifice one of his picks to get the new guy. The pick they sacrifice will then go into the pool. All this must also be done on an open forum when the scores are posted.
After three months I will announce the winner. The top three will get a small prize. The top 10 finishers will have the option to automatically be in the next fantasy draft.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
There are only a few rules to follow. All trades and transactions must be done on an open forum.
The second rule is something that shouldn’t be a problem, but I am putting it in just in case. You must be respectful to your fellow competitors. A little trash talking is fine, but you should know when the line is being crossed.
I will now address some questions that were asked.
Q) If I pick a non-wrestler and he or she appears on TV more than once, do I get points every time?
A) No you don’t. One of the pluses of picking someone like JR would be that you are almost always guaranteed points. The draw-back is that they don’t get as much and can only get points once.
Q) If my wrestler is a heel and he cheats, will I get as much points as everyone else?
A) Yes you will. As long as they win via pin or submission the points will always be the same.
Q) If my guy is in a tag match but he doesn’t make the pin, will I get the points?
A) Yes, because he would be on a team. If his partner made the pin you would receive full credit for it.
Q) Why must trades be done on an open forum?
A) It must be done so there is an equal playing field amongst all players.
If you have anymore questions please feel free to PM me. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Well that’s all for now, see you on the 24th.
As always, have a great day and God bless.
