Welcome! I'm Bando. Indeed you have found a solid wrestling forum. We're small, but pretty damn active.

If you're planning on sticking around, check this out: viewtopic.php?f=40&t=1776 . It's our fantasy wrestling league, we have one spot remaining, and I'm putting up the draft thread today. If you're unfamiliar with fantasy, it's a long read but great fun, as most of the forum will tell you.

Edit: viewtopic.php?p=18628#p18628 this may prove just how insanely nerdy we are.

Finally, if I may ask, how did you find us?

More Brits, they're taking over the internet one by one.

Regardless, welcome :) I'm your resident fight nerd, I know shit that doesn't matter in the real world but makes me sound smart on the internet.

I would like to join in, but to be honest I'm not very familiar with fantasy wrestling, and reading thru that write up fried my brain!

Don't worry about it- its tons simpler than its made out to be. That's the 'official' version, where I try and cut out all the loopholes. It was first introduced about five months ago and those who played it got a pretty good grasp of it. This season has about a half-dozen new players.

Here's the very quick version: you draft wrestlers, they score points based on how they perform (as given at the top). No wrestler can be owned more than once, though. You have a roster of 7, but only six score each week.. the seventh spot is for an injured wrestler or an alternate. You can add or drop unowned wrestlers each week, and you can trade with others. I keep track of all the points and post a few tables that look something like this:

The week of bragging rights: http://i708.photobucket.com/albums/ww84 ... week18.png

And then I sum them all up and put them here:
http://i708.photobucket.com/albums/ww84 ... week18.png

Anyway, it's one of those things that if you jump right into, you'll understand as you go.

You Americans have a strange conception of England... You'd think the fact that I've never been for a beer with Rich0 shows that we don't all hang out together. :rolleyes:

That's easily explained though. You are in France and he is in England.

Besides, I was just asking on the LONGSHOT that he might know him on the net.
