Rules
-We each take turns drafting a roster of 30 rounds, with three double rounds, giving a total of 33 competitors.
-You have 24 hours to make your draft pick. If you miss a draft pick, the first time you can make it up the next round. Any more misses after the first, you have to wait until the end of all thirty rounds to make up your picks.
-Round 10, 20 and 30 will be double pick rounds.
-We use the snake style draft so when the order is drawn, it goes first to last, then last to first, in alternating order.
-You can draft anyone, alive or dead, in whatever gimmick they used at any point.
-Once a person has been drafted, they and any of their alter egos are off limits to other drafters.
-Once the rosters are drafted, every drafter makes a PPV card with their drafted rosters.
-PPV cards must include NO MORE than three gimmick matches. A gimmick match is anything that isn't a standard singles or multi-person tag team/singles match. Triple threats, fatal 4 ways and six-man tags are not gimmick matches. No Disqualification, Ladder and Sumo matches are.
-PPV cards are pitted against each other until we have one card left, the 4w Draft Winner!

The Snake! Cup
The Snake! Cup is a bonus award, chosen by 4w admin Snake!, for the best ROSTER. This winner will be announced BEFORE the draft cards are revealed. If we are left with an odd number of final competitors, the Snake! Cup winner will get a bye to the finals.

Dude I'm so sorry. You have no signature so I accidentally glazed over your post without realising. Absolutely, you're in. I'll put you before me since it was my mistake, and I'm last anyway.

Does anybody else think it would be cool to do like a trade system after the draft?

Say you are allowed to accept and solicit trades for x amount of days after the rosters have been drafted, done via PM. If a trade agreement is reached, one party announces it and both post their respective updated rosters. I dunno, I've ever done any fantasy booking (those who thought I did that on the old site might have me mistaken for another "Taker"), so just throwing it out there.

We used to do a post draft trade and I’m happy to continue that tradition. After all drafts are made you can trade with anyone for say 3 days.

"What? Already!?"
You see me shuffling a bunch of papers on a desk, in a panicked motion, Picking up a picture of CM Punk and HBK and throwing them away.
"Ummm... yes! Just one minute...."
A phone on my desk starts ringing...
"Yes? Oh! A recently release WWE star? Decorated Champion? Has toured the whole world? Royal Rumble Winner? We need him! Fax over his headshot!"
You hear the sound of a dial up modem playing, and a fax machine printing.

Presenting to you the next member of O NO Wrestling is....

Ninjak you’re up and can make two picks, for your first missed pick and second round. However if you miss this round also, you have to wait until the end of the draft.

Perhaps we should draft someone for them as punishment? I see The Brooklyn Brawler is still available....

So I guess we have three choices:
- Draft some decent picks for Ninjak
- Make him wait til the end
- Or, as RD suggested, we can draft him guys like Brooklyn Brawler and Bastion Booger. Ideally terrible, alliterative gimmicks.

"Oh gosh... They took Kevin Owens, and they're already drafting NJPW wrestlers what will I do!? What will I do?"

The lights start to flicker, and everything slowly turns black...

"What! Who's there!?"

the door to the room opens, and mist starts to flow in, a red glow accompanying it...

"Oh... It's you... Straight from the bayou... Please if I give you a contract will you spare me!?"

This... creature... grabs ahold of the contract, and stamps a bloody thumbprint on the signature label.

And now! The newest addition to O No Wrestling...

"The Fiend" Bray Wyatt
