I am considering dealing my #1 and/or 2 for future picks package.
May look at selling the farm even and rebuilding. Inquire within.

I know I am not the most active user here but after some thoughts and reviewing I wanted to propose a change that could increase the number of ADD/Drops - Last season we had less than 1 per week, and id wager most seasons would hold that.

Basically what I believe this will do is force the deeper rosters to cut talent during the season for the weaker teams to possibly still compete.

Roster Format suggestion
Current - 6 Starters, 2 bench, 1 prospect (100 pt rule)

Proposal - 5 Starters, 1 bench, Up to 3 "Farm Team"

Each wrestler starts the season with "Farm team" eligibility, they lose that eligibility when they are started for more than 1 week, hold a title, compete in a title match or Main Event. End of season "Farm Team" can be kept if they maintained their eligibility throughout the season. Any FARM TEAM Keepers will take up your latest draft picks similar to the prospect pick.

potential thought - If a wrestler is dropped they can have Farm-team status for any team that has not previously owned them the current season

Potential thought 2 - I am not married to the name Farm team - just went with the baseball term.

I am waiting to hear back from a manager on potential deal we had in place. If don’t hear back in the next couple hours I will post my pick.

I do think the starting lineup can be reviewed. Although i feel there are a number of scorers not even rostered so not sure if i want to add more to that pile. MORE starters might help lesser teams win with depth vs. a couple big stars. Although i have no clue how to adjust the excel chart to accomplish changing it anyway. I already have an issue with some missing scores off my free agent list that i cant figure out.

I am not against adding more prospect or farm team type slots. But it sounds like it would increase the complexity in tracking everything. Its already pretty hard to watch for that one prospect hitting thresholds as it is. We tried to make it as simple as possible with the initial introduction of the prospect slot.

I pretty much like it as is. It’s already quite a bit to keep track of for the admins like you said GO.

Wow this may be the fastest moving draft we’ve had or at least since I started playing. We’re already nearly done ✅.

Great..Jeff Hardy is shelved. Just my luck. AM I allowed to bench him and call up Mustafa to my roster?

Yes, your bench and starting lineup can be changed around every week.

Its only your prospect that is a one time callup and you have to drop someone.

So in Roster thread just simply write..
Start Ali, Bench Hardy

Lars Sullivan news rumors speculation

According to this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, contrary reports have been confirmed. Dave Meltzer writes that the injury is more severe than originally believed, and Sullivan looks to be out for the next 6 - 9 months. If this update is accurate, we won’t see Lars again until early 2020. We should get a confirmation from WWE about the injury, as they typically release official updates when a talent is sidelined for a considerable amount of time.

There goes GO's super one sided trade attempt!! Jk

Lars is sitting at 126 this season so ineligible for prospect spot in season 41, but after that.... could be a good stash. Early 2020 return is prime for a mania push if they still love him.

Ill put money on him not returning until after mania however.

Not being content to find himself out of the limelight the best in the world Shane McMahon is open to being acquired by a playoff contender for a playoff run so he can use his amazing McMahon genetic jackhammer powers and undeserved push to lead you to a championship.

That being said if there are any interest in acquiring Shane's services ahead of Sunday's trade deadline please forward any inquiries to the email address on file for the stable formerly known as Chaos and now under New Management as the Dark Carnival

Zyre I think you broke the thread.

I dont have a huge kayfabe story but I will say Miz, Xavier, Bliss up for trades before the buzzer.

Yeah I agree with GO, they're basically hyping up house shows to sell the network

We should set criteria for next season since they're listing this right along side of PPV's Maybe number of "non-dark" matches?

ex. the shields last chapter had 7 matches, but 4 were never aired. Meanwhile super show down had 10 matches - zero dark (1 preshow)


"aired" live - TV, network or internet LIVE - not taped.

Run at least 2 hours

Have at LEAST 5 official matches

things like 205 live, NXT, Main Event dont meet these criteria... and sadly some recent raws might not either.

Anyway just some thoughts, always good to grow with the digital expansion.

Seems like a good starting point for criteria. Think it also needs to be announced more that a month or so in advance. Or even by the time the see season starts.

I like that idea R-Money especially the air live part but I would probably air on the side of four matches just because they can be pathetic with filler at time. And on a completely different subject why do I get the impression that if the season was just starting now I might end up being in the thick of it with I'm not going to lose the match for a long time it looks like Aleister Black and in line for a big ass push Bray Wyatt aka the fiend plus my Viking Raiders are good for 25 points each every time they show up on television. At least Shane is a lock to protect both Black and Bray for me as Shane has to be close to being a top five score overall at this point much to all of our chagrin.

Looks like they've updated the card and they've doubled their mats total no one or both of these extra matches could be dark

Thanks. I think i won. R$ was working the final numbers with Price Waterhouse Cooper... it did come down to Seth actually winning the belt as best i can tell... which is exactly why we reworked the calendar to end on these big shows (and live).
