How old was the hot chick Dev voted for in 2007? Which Stallone character did Solly vote for in 2008? How horrid was Moose's lineup in the Punapalooza competition? Those answers and more can be found here!
I selfishly want to plug two wrestling related things I’m involved with. But I hope you check them out and enjoy them and become active participants.
I’m part of the Universal Wrestling Alliance (UWA) long term fantasy booking fed at madstepdad.proboards.com. We’re currently on an active recruitment drive. You draft real wrestlers from any time period and book them into cards, writing matches and promos with as much or as little detail as you wish. It’s pretty free form. Reach out to Slade if interested.
I also co-host a wrestling podcast/webcast with Chad Webb called the Nitty Gritty Pro Wrestling Show. We do some fantasy wrestling topics like rebooking bad shows, creating original shows with a random name generator and our Unstable Stable series where we draft members of different wrestling stables and then book them into cards. We also do match and show reviews, spotlights on obscure wrestlers and more. Check it out on YouTube at www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLXidRWe-PP1R8Dz8RfJOUmon3w3mM7bou
Direct shill for something I’m involved in that I thought may be of interest to some others here. The Universal Wrestling Association is a long term fantasy drafting and booking league. You build a roster from anyone throughout wrestling history, who isn’t on other rosters, create cards and write shows with as much or as little detail as you wish. We’re always on the lookout for new territory owners. Check it out and feel free to ask me any questions. Here’s the link to the rules thread to explain more: madstepdad.proboards.com/thread/3289/join-muw-universe
Taking this thread and the Next Showdown thread into account, I'm giving the win to Zoo. I'll back-pocket the Travel ideas for the future.
I'll get the Zoo stuff going shortly. Be advised: I do have a lot of life things going on at the moment, so no promises on how quickly/efficiently I'm able to take this one from start to finish. There's usually some downtime at work, so hopefully it's a nonissue.
I wanted to share something I’ve been doing since July that might be of interest to those of you into fantasy wrestling. It’s called Mash Up Wrestling and it’s an online community located here: madstepdad.proboards.com.
It’s a combination of a fantasy draft and fantasy writing. You would select a roster from available wrestlers, pretty much anybody ever, and then write shows based on that featuring matches, promos and whatever you want. It’s very freeform and the style of feds vary as we have one right now that is Japanese focused and another that is all women. It’s not competitive, but we give feedback to each and share ideas.
As someone who did fantasy drafts, but wanted more time and freedom in creating shows, this has been really fun for me. If interested check it out and read some of the shows and threads to get a better feel for how it goes. You can also ask me any questions.
Slade has opened signups for an auction-style wrestling draft with wrestler expenses and salary caps. Several of us have already thrown our names into the hat to play, but I'm posting this here in case any non-frequenters might be interested.
