I don't see why people think picks are slimming. I just got Titus at a criminally late point. He's my secret weapon. Always has been.

They're slimming on Raw was the problem and with Bryan ending up as my first pick and not Big Show like I expected, I had to pick a second Raw person ASAP.

If you desperately wanted Ryback so much (and I don't blame you for aiming for that pick), why on earth are you not picking the U.S. Champion, Jericho, or Ziggler first...? Is Bryan THAT much of a step-up in value on all of those guys?

A. Who knows how much longer Santino's push is gonna stay
B. No one knows Jericho's schedule and whether he'll even still be in the WWE in a month.
C. Ziggler was a crapshoot. I don't know if he's getting pushed either.

Bryan could be WWE Champion after Sunday, I didn't think I should skip him.

Yeah, I mean- it's super hard to skip on D-Bry in that spot. He could turn Raw mid-season. He could turn Raw on Monday.

I have three Raw guys, if you're interested in handing over Ryback or Bryan before Bryan loses on Sunday.

ILMH has traded his boy, John Cena and his 5th round pick to LKR for Randy Orton and R Truth!

You really traded John Cena for Randy Orton?


Interesting.

John Cena is always stable points, and a good stalwart to have. BUT Randy Orton is coming back from an extended leave. With SD as thin as it is and him coming back, I expect him to be really big points, especially if they heel turn him.

I also was able to get R Truth out of the deal, a decent promo guy and a tag team champion.

All and all, I believe the trade will benefit me in the long run as my team now has no real filler, aside from Titus. And even then Titus is going to have a good year if him and Young keep on the roll they've been on.

I actually like the deal for ILMH, mostly because Orton's likely to show up on both shows and Cena's only ever appearing on Raw.

Also, because Truth is a much better own than Cesaro. I would have liked it considerably less if he'd had pick 33 or 34 instead of 35.

Woah, isn't Slater Raw? You had him listed as Raw when I picked him. I know because I purposely drafted a Raw and a Smackdown both times I drafted.

EDIT: Also, since Clay's Raw ban has been lifted shouldn't he be considered a Raw superstar again?

Unless someone else has edited my post, I'm pretty positive I posted him as blue. He's blue on the wwe.com roster, and in the SD space in the first post- and I haven't moved anyone, just grayed them out.

Also, Brodus is on the SD roster on the wwe.com site.

To be honest, I'm already second guessing myself on the trade. Had I gotten Cara or Kidd (or both) I'd have been much happier, but that's not really ILMH's fault. I do think hindsight being 20/20, that I should have just said "Cena for Orton, straight up" instead of the actual trade. Too late now though.

I think he'd have rejected that, or else he'd have taken Orton at #3 when he had the chance to choose between them...

I had originally thought of Cena for Orton, but then thought of roster regulations and needed another Raw guy after in case. I think the right choice was made, although I feel bad because I really thought LKR would have gotten Cara or Kidd.

I would have bet money he was red. I know for a fact when I chose both times I took a red and a blue. Also, can you give me a direct link to where you're getting this info from? Because when I check the WWE Roster site there is NO separate roster for Raw or Smackdown. It's all one giant roster with nothing indicating what brand each person is on. I mean, Brodus was on Smackdown what, once? Now he's back to Raw every week.

I'm not really trying to make a deal out of this it's just if Heath was blue I wouldn't have taken both him AND Layla. I had a plan and instead of having two open spots for my last pick I'm now forced to take a Raw.

Meh I guess it doesn't matter anyways. :oops:

Picking Khali makes me realize the talent depth of WWE isn't as bad as it is made out to be sometimes. Does anyone remember when SD! had so little talent that they put the belt on Khali? I mean, that was truly a bad time for WWE.

What ILMH said - there are links by the roster list in the draft thread, and also, you can go to the full roster listing and rollover the dropdown where it says "current" or something in the bottom left, and click on "RAW" or "SMACKDOWN".

Sorry about that - if I could check the edit history of the post, I would... I'm not sure I can. Looking in the Mod CP now..

Edit: Yeah, it sees me editing as a member, not a mod, because I made the OP.

If I picked Khali instead of Ambrose, would either of you had taken Dean Ambrose?

Maybe, but there is a lot of people in this league so I doubt it. I know it is heavily rumored he is debuting soon, but with so many people it just seems like the smarter idea to go for people who are at least active right now, or soon will be for sure.

I wouldn't have just because who knows when he might actually debut. Same reason I didn't draft someone else.

The season starts on Monday right? I'm a bit worried we won't finish the draft on time. I know, we only have 4 picks left, but the last pick (made by me) was over 32 hours ago....

Yes, and I'm very aware of that. I'm giving Shot until ILMH is done with work tonight, then picking for him... at which point ILMH and I will pick. That'll leave one pick and plenty of time for Tman to make it.

Why don't you just skip Longshot and say "He can pick when he comes back" instead of picking for him?
