To me those rosters just show that WWE no longer has enough wrestlers on it's books to work 3 different brands. Taking the RAW roster for example i just can't see where the future fueds are. Just realised that Mr Kennedy has gone to RAW which i think is great however there are stories that he is really struggling to recover from his injury.

Edit. I just realised that they have split Finley and Hornswoggle up :lol:

Well we've know seen our first action in GRAPL. Only 5 points were up for grabs so far. No one got the full five and no one failed to score. Let's see the changes made in the draft.....
Image

Pretty poor to be honest. With these being the first scores I'll just put the leaderboard for you all to see your own performances. Will we have a breakaway at the top? Have AJ Styles and Zellery kept up tradition and stayed at the top of the pack yet again?

Image

And there it is. First blood. We have 3 ahead at the top only coming one point short. Included in there is newcomer KKLEIN, impressing with his first outing. As for the rest, a lot of you put faith in Shelton Benjamin and Cena to move which proved to cost a lot of points. If Morrison hadn't have moved late on we would've seen a lot of people scoring dismally.

So we've got a slightly staggered pack heading into the first PPV of this season. Backlash is in 11 days but I'll see you 8 days with the scorecard.

Off to a blinding start. :mrgreen:

Just read the comments about Hogan murdering his wife. Now that would be front page news.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Nice work, Rog. Impressive font. Ooh, shadow effects on the avatars. GRAPL must have an improved budget this season.

I'm happy with my start, although I wish I had listened to the dirt sheets about MVP and Candice now.

EDIT - Why are there two pics of Ezekiel Jackson on there?

There shouldn't be two pictures of Ezekiel Jackson. Chalk that down to me not caring who most of those are. Half of the names got a massive :| from me.

I was being quite sincere, Mr. Rogmahon. Those avatar shadows have blown me away.

My money is on Jesse. Without Festus he's going to need a new gimmick/repackage or he's screwed.

There are shadows on everything. It's one of the few things I know how to do in Photoshop so it needs to be flogged to the hills. That and stroke.

They always seem to axe half of the supplemental draft. :fp:

Anyone ever thought about this:

http://www.xwawrestling.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=184&Itemid=42

Wrestling training, in Morecambe! Or Ipswich. I'd be totally up for it, except for the fact that I've never finished anything in my life before, and the fact that, y'know, it's wrestling training. Imagine telling your mates your off to Morecambe to train as a pro wrestler? :lol:

They need to cut a lot of Divas. You only need a few as eye candy because lets face it they don't give them a chance to wrestle. Halving the amount of Divas wouldn't be noticable and they'd save thousands of $ while enhancing the ones they keep.

Looks great again Rog, you truly are the man. I've made a similar start to my last GRAPL outing, and we all know how that one ended. 8-)
