Fictional characters wrestling draft

http://natecorbitt.proboards.com/thread/12328/fictional-character-wrestling-feedback-thread

Over at Pun board in the showdown central section. Fictional character wrestling draft. Similar to the regular wrestling drafts, but using only fictional characters. Take a look and sign up if interested.

I like it. Now if only I can figure out how to login to puns after many years.

ETA: Yup, the login process seems to have changed. We'll see if I make it in.

One question regarding this rule, ''No real people living or dead can be drafted or representations of any real person in popular media''.

I figure Dracula would be an obvious exception, since there's the historical figure and then the vampire but would the big D be the only one? Characters like Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter,King George Washington from Assassin's Creed, the fuck ton fictional versions of Blackbeard are all a no-go?


...I think I just figured out why you have that rule.

It's fictional characters, not real people. The rule goes onto state that loosely based on a real person is okay, not direct representations. So Dracula only loosely based on Vlad the Impaler and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, only loosely based on the real Abe Lincoln would be okay. Various Blackbeard's would need to be reviewed. Not familiar with how King George is used in Assassin's Creed. Seriously, it's loose and anyone who could make a good case for a pick I would probably allow if the reasoning was solid. I just wanted to make a clear line between real people and fictional characters. Now I'm thinking the next experiment should be an anything goes draft of whoever or whatever.
