    LIVE draft results from the 2018 Lords of Pain fantasy draft

    Here are the LIVE results of the 2018 Wrestlemania Era Fantasy Draft. I'll try to keep this current as I can. If you want to find it on twitter, give me a follow @LOPType as results are posted there as well. I'll edit this as picks are made.

    RULES

    - 13 competitors comprised of Column Forums writers, main page writers, and members of the comments section of LOP.

    - 20 rounds total

    - Anyone who competed in at least one Wrestlemania is eligible

    - Anyone eligible for the draft can be evaluated on their entire career, not just their WWE run. (This obviously boosts guys like Flair, DDP, Lex Luger, Sting, and others who had success elsewhere)

    - Male singles competitors only (you may draft someone from a tag team, but they will be weighted on individual merits)

    - Note that those eligible must have competed at Wrestlemania, not just appeared. Also, they are judged only on their merits as a wrestler/entertainer. (If they were a manager and wrestled, you couldn't draft them on the merits of managerial work, only wrestling).

    - After the draft, there will be a FREE AGENCY PERIOD that goes in the reverse draft order. Everyone will have an opportunity to pick up someone who went undrafted but must drop someone they did draft to do so. Also, after everyone has made 1 add/drop (if they choose to, this is not mandatory) then there will be another chance to grab a guy off of waivers, which will then go back to the original draft order.

    - There will be two separate categories for winners
    1.) Players Choice: All 13 of us vote for our top 5 (can't vote for yourself)
    2.) People's Choice: The comments section of the LOP main page and the comments section in the CF will vote (I will make a separate post with everyone's team so people know to vote. Please DO NOT vote in this one if you are competing)

    NON REGULAR WRESTLERS
    These guys wrestled a match and are therefore eligible for the taking. Understand that on your roster they would be viewed in the same manner in which they appeared at Wrestlemania, as more a special non-wrestler type of attraction

    Lawrence Taylor (Fought Bam Bam Bigelow WM X)
    Butterbean (Boxed against Bart Gunn)
    Akebono (Vs. Big Show)
    Shaquille O'Neil (Andre the Giant memorial Battle Royal @ WM 33)

    TAG TEAMS (CANNOT BE DRAFTED TOGETHER)

    These individuals are all part of tag teams, but can only be drafted as singles competitors. If you happen to draft a team in different rounds, you may use them as part of your Wrestlemania card as a team. Don't be afraid to employ a little strategy here and draft one half of a team to force a trade. All fair game!

    The only criteria was to look good on paper, and that can mean anything, so I am gonna trend more towards guys I like. I'll balance that with guys who are also big names, especially early on, but most of all I want to build a card that I can be proud of personally, rather than something that will draw big but make me hate my life. I'm not even saying Hogan on top makes me hate my life or anything, but given the choice between him and guys like Flair and Savage, well, it's an easy choice for me!

    Yea and that's perfectly fine and honestly, that is the template I think most people will be using. If Hogan is there in the second round or something, I'd be hard pressed to pass on him. Striking a good balance would be key for me. Guys that drew, good workers, good mid card guys. I pre-ranked 400 people and I can assure you with 280 picks made that the pool will thin out and people will have to choose guys that aren't top guys ..looking for those hidden gems. That is another reason why I LOVE having 14 people and a big draft pool. The draft will be won by those who get value in rounds 15-20.

    I will say, there's basically no chance that I won't draft Heath Slater in the last round.

    We still got Ultimate Warrior, Bruno Sammartino, Andre the Giant available and then we gotta start thinking about guys like Lesnar, Batista, Edge, Jericho who hit their stride with the company either attitude or Ruthless aggression era. Don't forget about guys like Jake roberts and Mr Perfect who were masterful in the ring and characters we'll never forget. I would be more than happy to draft the latter 2 guys mentioned in round 2.

    I will be happy to reveal what is now my THIRD strategy (screw being last!!) once the ball is rolling a little more. Though anyone who has followed my work should by rights soon recognise the formula I want to pursue. History is the best teacher there is...

    Is the strategy to cry because Bret and Rollins both got picked already?

    Well now the strategy is going to be to spitefully pick every WCW golden boy going....

    I've realised that there are a whopping 26 picks between my second and third. That's crazy!

    Plan if you grabbed Hogan/Sting (I doubt that's your plan) you may have arguably the faces of two companies. That'd be solid in my book

    I'm changing the deadline to 24 hours for making a pick. Honestly, most people have been prompt about getting theirs in. The only hold up is when I replaced people. Now that we have a solidified group, i'll make that deadline 24 hours instead of 48. Given the amount of interest there's been from the competitors (thank you by the way!), it seems like the right move. This should move things along swiftly. I'm hoping we can get 2 rounds in per week.. that quickens the pace to make it fun and of course every 4 rounds i'll post to the main page so that will break it up nicely. Thanks everyone who's been interested in this. It means a lot.

    Waiting on sir Benjamin Button, who does not have facebook or twitter to bother. LOL. After his pick, everything should move quickly again.

    I will provide a full breakdown of my picks later on because much like my first pick I have a grander plan in mind that could be spoiled if I was to reveal things now. Was hoping I could pick up Daniel Bryan on my second way through, I nearly took him in my first pick and was holding out hope he would still be undrafted on my second.

    Rich, want to take over the RELIVED series now you have Bryan?

    Kidding though it could be fun to get some other contributors to it to liven things up.

    So we have an interesting list of people left and Im dying to know how people will prioritize

    WCW/NWA main eventers: Sting, Dusty Rhodes, Luger
    Hulkamania Era guys: Hogan, Warrior, Perfect, Savage, Piper, Andre, Rude
    Ruthless aggression: Edge, Batista, Orton
    WCW prime: Booker T, DDP
    Attitude Era: Mic Foley, Chris Jericho, Big Show
    Current crop: AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns

    obviously there's overlap in eras but that was essentially the eras in which their primes were hit.

    The reason I LOVE this kind of draft is that there is really no wrong selection. Nobody you can point to and say, "well that was a terrible pick." Different eras all mean different things to everyone.

    Sam, if Rich hadn't picked Bryan I was going to, so there was no way you were going to get him! Haha.

    Picks are posted live on Twitter as they come in. I try to reveal them that way and i'll come over here and post after the fact so people can see the board. I'm swamped at work though so i'll post Latta's pick soon!

    Update.. spoke with Benjamin Button who was understandably not happy about losing picks. I did market this as something people can do even if they have busy lives, which he definitely does. I have not heard back from him, but am giving him every opportunity to stay in this because I like him and him wrong. If he is out, there seems to be a ton of interest and a replacement will be no issue. If he's in, he'll have picks 16 and 17 after Latta. My goal is to knock out 2 rounds per week ,making the draft about 2 1/2 months which is fair. Also keep in mind i'll post to the main page every 4 rounds and that should keep things fresh for debate and all that good stuff. Hang in there, guys! This should move faster once everything is set!

    Ultimate juxtaposition of who the fans want as their champion vs. who the fans do NOT want as their champion. I like the strategy. Will the voters?

    So I'm going to throw out this idea... would you rather have a panel of impartial judges (people from MP or CF) who vote on the winner or just let the comments section as well as all the competitors voting for someone else (honor system)?

    Maybe a People's choice and an 'experts' choice where we can give a top 3. Obviously we can't vote for ourselves. You could then combine them for the Grand Winner somehow.

    I use that term expert loosely.

    Great, idea Sam. That's why they pay you the big bucks! The trophy can then say "people's choice winner- 2018 fantasy Wrestlemania era draft" As long as people used the honor system and didn't try to skew votes for someone who is well received. I think we're all adults. I'd have no problem acknowledging someone's greatness.

    I have a lot of problems acknowledging someone else's greatness, if they picked Seth Rollins first.

    Damn Australian, stealing my name, stealing my wrestler...

    My wheels are already spinning as to next summer's draft. I think next summer will be "Type's All time Tag Team classic" ANY Tag team, ANY promotion is eligible, overlapping is fair game (ie- Brothers of Destruction can be drafted as well as Team hell no), anyone that was ever a tag team is fair game. That should open up the field to do another 20 rounds and 14 people.

    Though I'd totally need help with some of the indy promotion tag teams- that's not my bag. I will hire someone to do data entry!
