The Awesomeness has an Awesome Idea.
For many other sports, like baseball and football, there are numerous fantasy leagues across the internet. I think it would be fun for the Bleacher Report community to come together and compete in the WWE Fantasy League!
I want to do it like they do on NFL.com, they start with a live draft and give points for various things, which in this case would be like 3 points for a match win, 5 points for a title win, 6 for a successful title defense ect ect..
If you want to join in this fantasy league, personal message me, since that is easier to count. Then leave a comment in the comment boards about when a good time for the live draft would be. I know that everybody won't be able to make the draft when we decide on it, so if you can't make it, just personal message me your rankings on who you would like and i'll give you your highest available person when your turn comes.
There is no limit on how many people who can join, but you must sign up by this Friday when Smackdown starts in order to participate. I will not accept late entries.
There are some rules i wanna go over.
The league will start with Monday Night Raw the day after SummerSlam. (August 16th). The draft will happen before that.
You are not able to draft the following superstars: John Cena, Triple H, Undertaker or Randy Orton.
You are only allowed 1 diva on your team
You may not draft anyone from NXT Season 2, but you may draft someone from the Nexus.
You may not draft anyone from TNA.
You may not draft a whole tag team (i.e Hart Dynasty) You can only draft one superstar.
Superstars not drafted will become free agents, they will be available to pick up by personal messaging me the person you want to add, and the person you want to drop.
Trades must be personal messaged to me and i will execute the trade, the trade will take place on the next Monday before Raw.
The limit on how many superstars you can have on your team will be determined when i realize how many people will be joining this.
Now for the point Values:
Match Win: 3 points
Title Win: 5 points
Successful title defense: 5 points
Tag Team Win: 3 points
Pay-Per-View Win: 4 Points
Hit Finishing Move: 2 Points each
#1 Contenders Match Win: 4 Points
Where in a handicapped match, the superstar is outnumbered and wins: 7 points
Triple Threat Match Win: 6 points
Fatal Four Way Win: 7 points
Special Match Win (i.e Ladder match, Steel cage match): 7 points
Main Event Win (will be added to match win points): 4 points
Beat Champion (Non-Title Match): 1 point added to match win.
Submission Win: 1 Point added to Match win
Count Out Win: 2 Points
DQ Win: 1 point.
Now i know that WWE doesn't have a season, so we can't have a season ending playoff tournament to determine the champion, so i have determined a system to acknowledge the people who are really good at this. The person in first place is given the WWE Fantasy Championship.
The person in Second Place is given the WWE Intercontinental Fantasy Championship.
The person in Third is given the WWE United States Fantasy Championship.
The person with the highest earning Diva is given the WWE Women's Fantasy Championship.
So that's all, any questions you can leave in the comment boards. I hope you guys join and here's to a good time!
Also don't forget to put a good time for our live draft, which will be done in the form of a live blog. I will personal message the people who have signed up with a confirmation of them signing up, their draft number, and the date and time of the draft. Thanks for reading.
~The Awesomeness has Spoken.
ATTENTION ATTENTION: RULE CHANGE, DUE TO OVERWHELMING POPULARITY AND PARTICIPATION I HAVE DECIDED TO CHANGE SOME OF THE RULES REGARDING HOW MANY SUPERSTARS YOU CAN HAVE. EVERYONE WILL HAVE A TEAM OF 5 SUPERSTARS AND 1 DIVA, YOU MAY HAVE SOME SAME SUPERSTARS AS SOMEONE ELSE. WHEN I GET THE FINAL TALLY FOR THE TOTAL NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS, I WILL PERSONAL MESSAGE YOU ABOUT THE RULES AND OTHER THINGS. THEN YOU WILL PERSONAL MESSAGE ME YOUR 5 SUPERSTARS AND 1 DIVA. YOU MAY CHANGE YOUR SUPERSTAR LINEUP BUT YOU MUST EMAIL IT TO ME BEFORE RAW EACH WEEK.
