Then, in this case, NJPW officially signs Satoshi Kojima

Does anyone else buy Negro Casas: UWFi worker. Cuz...you know...maybe? I could see that working. He's one of the few luchadores that I could see working that style. Kinda.

 

For the love of god someone pick up Negro Casas so I don't have to throw out the 8months of cards I've put together and rethink everything :)

As I'm putting fantasy cards together. I'm coming to realize that more doesn't necessarily equal better. Apparently, it really is possible to have too much of a good thing. If Liger the and Ultimo Dragon both got dropped tomorrow... of course I'd add them... but it would mean more wrestlers doing jobs when I'd prefer to put them over, more guys stuck in the mid-card when I'd rather be moving them up the ladder. My opinion (and of course you may not agree) is that we both need more young guys and cannon fodder... if we need anything at all. More top-line workers might just create log jams.

Oh I agree. That's why I drafted guys like Tatsuo Nakano, Miyato, Osamu Kido, Yatsu instead of picking up Kohsaka & Yamamoto who are younger, could immediately be put in a drawing position against certain opponents and are great wrestlers.

 

I mean, I have guys like Regal & Finlay and in 2016 we say "Oh shit, Regal & Finlay." But really, Regal & Finlay didn't mean jack shit in Japan in 1995.

 

Casas is sort of a guy like that. He doesn't have much/if any value as a "draw" but is a veteran superworker so he can help younger guys along and can lose because he's not really a guy being counted on to draw. Unless someone was trying to turn him into a star of course. Casas is valuable precisely because he's not really a guy you could ever build a promotion around in the mid 90s in Japan or the United States so he doesn't have to be protected. His value is that he has good matches and there is always a place for good matches on a wrestling card. :)

 

I also am running once a monthish won't have everyone work every card. And other than my light heavyweight tournament, the smallest building I'm running over the next 8 months is Sumo Hall. So while I agree I think it is possible to have too much of a good thing for sure, I'd rather have THAT problem than a not enough talent problem. :)

 

Just wait till UWFi raids All Japan and steals Kawada. The perfect loser to put over everyone :)

Good points. 

 

I also agree that Kawada's at his very best when he's putting other people over. Then again, that's probably true of the vast majority of great pro wrestlers.

Think about Casas is he is in college, so he's only available for occasional shows.

Danny Spivey's in ring career is over in October but All Japan can get some use out of him until then... unless we want to act like he never got injured by Diesel...

I'm wondering if the following could be added to the list (sorry if they're on the list or were in the draft and I overlooked them when I was cross referencing shows:

1. Dick Murdoch had his last match 5/96 against Fujiwara (and should probably team with Terry Funk in FMW going for the Brass Knucks tag titles)

2. James Stone (Little Guido) had been in UWFi and working US indies. Could be a good fit for anyone obviously.

3. Halloween/Ciclope - Did he ever work WAR or wherever Damian 666 worked to get on the list? Those two were like the poor man's version of Rey/Psic in that they went everywhere together. There could be a sweet lucha invasion of FMW :)

4. VIctor Zangiev

5. Salman Hashimikov

 

Last 2 are big russians who worked the first ever Tokyo Dome show (Zangiev had that classic match with Hashimoto) and went on to be frequently used gaijin by UWfi.

Would it be possible for me to sign Ricky Steamboat as a non-wrestler? That's what I'd like to do.

Would count towards the total roster amount and remember he can NOT wrestle until what 2007?

Perfectly fine by me. I'll sign him, then.

Debuting guys will be through draft of C-D tier promotions. Debuting guys... maybe draft through A-B promotions, maybe C as well. That needs to be hashed out.

I know he was punted on during the draft, but is RVD available to sign?

I think that's the fairest way to do it

It depends. If a bunch of people want him, we'll make him in a draft with other returners/debuters...

 

if only you want him, then free agent.

 

My mistake for leaving him out of the draft.
