AJPW

All Together 3: Fantasy Draft

Published

on

Thanks to the quarantine, Mathew MacMillan and Robert McCauley have gone stir-crazy. There’s very little current wrestling to consume so we’ve decided to take a page out of Eastern Lariat’s playbook by drafting out our own All Together cards.

Leaders from more than half a dozen Japanese wrestling companies came together last week in an effort to work out some sort of compensation agreement with the Japanese government. This has led to rumors of these promotions putting together a collaborative card in order to show unity within the scene.

Nothing has been set in stone yet but that won’t stop us from fantasy booking our ideal cards as if this were to become a reality. We’ll be following the same format as heard on the aforementioned Eastern Lariat podcast.

Rules:
We each draft 40 wrestlers
Available to draft are wrestlers from the following promotions: AJPW, DDT, Diana, NJPW, NOAH, Stardom & TJPW.
No limit on amount of wrestlers allowed to draft from one specific promotion.
An option to draft up to 4 wrestlers outside of the promotions listed above.

After the draft, we will be tasked with putting together a card with its own set of rules. This will be done in a separate article which is where those rules will be laid out.

Most games declare the youngest goes first but since Mathew is newer to scene, we’ve decided he should receive the first pick. Let’s get started!
