Matte – I like Breeze vs. Dream on paper, but maybe not as a main event. Ali vs. Daniels could be surprisingly good. Ray vs. Jake is probably my favorite match because that’s just how my tastes go and I like the stipulation. Strong final card.

Slade - Interesting mix of talent. Pillman vs. Gargano looks good on paper. Rhodes vs. Piper not so much, but I see the storyline being worked very well and a very good story being told by those two in the bout. Great women’s match. I don’t like multi-team tag matches, but that being under old school ECW rules helps, because it will just be a chaotic brawl.

Eric – The women’s match feels too messy, too many people for a falls count anywhere match. Maybe a gauntlet match works better for that. You pin someone in the hallway and then the next woman comes and fights the winner and you go that way. And I probably wouldn’t do that match and the multi-man ladder match same show. Too cluttered. Both tag matches are great.

Niles – Kong vs. Cage I could just see being a bunch of power spots and I don’t know if I like that. Like ‘look at Cage is doing to a woman,’ ‘look at what a woman is doing to Cage,’ that type of match. Opener doesn’t do anything for me. Tag match is okay. The top two matches are fantastic and sell the rest for me.

Fifth – Haas vs. Jordan is a good opener. I don’t know if Malenko and Sabre would mesh well as a team. EC3 and Liger don’t seem like a good fit. Owen Hart vs. Davey Boy has happened, but the stakes are greater here. I’m not a big Chamber fan.

Mayhem – Aries vs. Kingston is solid. Taz vs. Tully has me interested even thought that doesn’t look good on paper. Tag match feels like a clash of styles. Triple threat opening is good.

Dalem – Fenix vs. Dragon and Benjamin vs. Ospreay I like. Tag title match has me intrigued. I know I have said I haven’t liked your cards much, this is probably my favorite of the lot.

Slade: Gargano/Pillman should be good. Cody/Piper seems like more story than match. Good women's match, ok tag match, and good opener if I could get past my imbalanced feelings on Mundo.

Eric: Decent main event. I'm kind of with Leo on the women's match, but I'd still want to watch it. I had Kendrick and PJ as a team on my early cards as Flying Lotus, so I can't knock that pairing. Great ladder match and obviously the opening match is dream match material.

Niles: I can dig your main event, and Razor/Dunne would be a lot of fun. The tag title match is decent, and then the two opening matches lose me a little.

Fifth: Not my favorite group of names in the chamber match, but I'd still watch. The opener is good; otherwise, the matches are ok with guys I like a lot and guys I think are just ok.

Mayhem: Kofi/Aries was my first card main event, so I can't hate that one. Angelico/TAKA would be fun and the opener is decent. The other two matches are ok.

Dalem: Powerful roster. Great main event, Fenix/Dragon would be fun, tag title match is good, and the opener is solid. KENTA/Coffey is fine. Again, my favorite card of the round and my pick to win.

Leo: I like Petey/Pentagon. Dynamite/Chavo could be interesting. The rest loses me a bit, but the main event could deliver.

Matte: You have a strong card. I think Mustafa Ali vs. Christopher Daniels is the highlight, but the women's triple threat and Bully Ray vs. Jake Roberts are also excellent. I like all the guys in the tag match, but it doesn't appeal to me (although I can't quite say why). The main event is a match I'd like to see, but it doesn't feel like a main event. Small quibbles aside, I like this card a lot.

Eric: Lethal vs. KUSHIDA is a great singles match. The Tag Team Championship match is a lot better than the dream match. The ladder match ought to be good, even if half of the competitors aren't favourites of mine. I like a lot of the women in the Falls Count Anywhere match, but I don't like the booking. It feels overbooked. It's hard to keep track of that many opponents all over the arena.

Niles: All the singles match are excellent. Dunne vs. Ramon is fantastic. Unlike others who may not like Kong vs. Cage, I'll give you big props for that match. That's the kind of intergender match I want to see. Throw in a pair of good tag matches and you've got the best card of round five.

Fifth: Hart vs. Smith is great, but it has happened. However, I'd like to see it with that stipulation. The Elimination Chamber should be fun. Haas vs. Jordan is okay. My favourite match would be Malenko & Sabre vs. Cole & Page without the Texas Tornado stipulation. This is the odd time when a stipulation makes a match less appealing to me.

Mayhem: I like the main event quite a bit. It's weird because Matte already booked it, so I want to take points away for that. On the other hand, I find it more appealing and want to give it more points than I did at the time he booked it. I guess Kofi's 'Mania performance made me feel higher on it. I guess those things cancel out. The other singles matches and the show opening triple threat look really good to me. This is definitely your best card of this draft.

Dalem: Again, you bring another strong card to the table. Rey Fénix vs. Ultimo Dragon is the best match anyone has booked this round. Ibushi vs. WALTER and KENTA vs. Joe Coffey are also very appealing. Benjamin vs. Ospreay is also great. The tag match would be a top match on most of these cards, yet its the weakest here. This is a wonderful card.

Leo: Dynamite Kid vs. Chavo and Petey Williams vs. Pentagon DARK are both really good. Prince Puma vs. Steve Corino doesn't knock me out, but it might surprise me. The other matches are okay, but don't interest me much. On the whole though, I commend you for running with your theme through all five rounds. It couldn't have been easy.

A fun concept. Thanks for running it niles.

I thought I had a chance at my first wrestling draft victory. So close! Still no shame in losing to some excellent cards put together by Matte and Slade.

This was a fun twist on the draft concept. Props to Niles.

Wow, did not expect that comeback from being in fourth place after the previous round. I'm usually pretty confident with my first 2-3 cards, and then anything after the third round has me struggling a bit to put the pieces together.

Good cards all around (I still think Dalem had the most consistently good cards) and a fun new draft experience.

Glad all of you had fun with this. I'll probably try to run this again next year - ideally with a fully fleshed out and polished trade system in place to create that "Call up to the main roster" dynamic. I'd like to get this version of the draft working so that it's similar to running an indie fed.

It has me wondering what other style theme drafts could be done...Main Event only, where they have to have won a world title (or headlined a PPV maybe?) Or Tag Team (though the criteria on that would seem to be very subjective...do they have to have had a name..or just won a title..both..one or the other)

Cruiserweights?
Wrestlers who have wrestled in a Wrestlemania match?
Wrestlers who aren't in the WWE Hall of Fame?
Mismatched tag teams?

Wrestlers who have wrestled at Wrestlemania would definently be interesting. Tht women's and cruiserweight divisions would be tougher to fill out than usual. It'd basically be like trying to book a stereotypical mid00's WWE show, star power-filled main events with token matches for the other divisions in the midcard.
