Hey all. This is the thread for the GTZ/JPN fantasy wrestling group. If you're interested in joining, we're looking for people who will be active, fun, and social so if that's you, let me know and I'll add you next time there's an opening. Right now we're in the off-season too so it might be possible now. Here's a quick overview of how it works. Like fantasy football, there's a bunch of people in a league, we do a draft where you pick wrestlers from an available pool comprised of both rosters to be on your team, and throughout the season on televised shows like raw, sd, and ppvs, your guys get points for doing good (winning matches, attacking people, doing interviews, winning or defending titles, putting people through tables, etc). I can send you the complete list of what you get points for later if you're joining. Teams are ranked based on how many points your guys have gotten you. Guys who aren't currently on anyone's team are in the free agent pool and you can drop your guys every week to pick up free agents, trades between you and other owners also possible through the commisioner. If you have any questions, let me know. I hope some of you give it a try and get into it as it adds a lot to watching raw and SD every week in my opinion.
noooooooooo!! is it serious?
"WWE has confirmed the report. Ringside physician Dr. Chris Amann said, "during his match, [Samoa Joe] felt a pop at the bottom of his [right] foot. We took a look and believe he has a plantar fascia rupture, which is a thick tissue rupture under the foot. We will get an MRI to confirm. Treatment includes a period of immobilization in a boot with crutches and platelet rich plasma injections."
Internet estimates for recovery from the injury range from six weeks to four months, but a period of at least a couple weeks keeping the foot immobilized and non-weight bearing is typically mandated."
I know how this feels, but if it's not too bad, it's possible he can work at Mania. But if it's as bad as they're making it seem, with the whole 6 weeks-4 month estimated time table, I imagine he'll be sitting out Mania. Fudging laaame.
> Since Joe's injured and Elias sucks, I switched them out for Gallows and Anderson.
Definitely not a bad decision.
> Yeah, wish my team would've worked as is but oh well.
The booking with Joe is very inconsistent & Elias is still green. It's real possible getting the Club as they're entering a program with Balor right around Mania might work out even better for you.
1st place after week 2 baby!
no thanks to 0 point cena. so far not working out as a 2nd round draft pick.
3rd place for me. Would be awesome if Bobby Roode ever did anything.
Almost feel like he'll win the Rumble with just how underutilized he is right now haha
No Lesnar and no Wyatt (that I recall) on Raw. Balor loses to Rollins. Real bad week for me on Raw. Let's home Nak does SOMEthing on SD, and that Roode wins that US title deal going on over there.
How was Balor Vs. Rollins?
Disappointing. I think those two should have a great match in them but not sure if and when it'll come. Still very excited about an eventual aj vs rollins match though and hope it lives up to my expectations

It was a good match, but I agree at being disappointed due to 1) TV time and 2) storylines being furthered. You know this Raw match was just to push the Rollins/Jordan team/issue/situation.
I thought their inaugural Universal Title match was great despite the injury. Give these guys a Mania mach & you will get a MATCH haha
Oh man, jey got a dui? Us-noooooo! (apologies for the terrible pun)
And what happened to owens?

Owens was pulled from house shows for injury, but sources say the office don't consider them "serious injuries" so hopefully that means he'll still be fine for Mania. Think him being pulled was just a precautionary measure.
Getting closer, I feel real bad for Ambrose. He's seemed to have pulled the short straw for just about any Mania he's been a part of.
That's good then, sounds like the right move. I'm very interested to see where they're going with the db/shane/owens story so he doesn't need to be wrestling right now, just let him go on tv and do his thing outside the ring while sami wrestles.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm driving to texas to console naomi..... see you guys in a few days.

After seeing ROH Driven 2008, it's so wild to think about where these dudes started compared to where they are. Kevin Owens is pretty much just the WWE Kevin Steen, in that he's still the outspoken gimmick he was in ROH, just to WWE standards.
But watching El Generico and watching Sami Zayn is like watching two different dudes. Not wrestling moves/style-wise, but holy crap, he was SO MUCH MORE animated in ROH as Generico than he is in WWE, even with the "skanking ska music" gimmick. El Generico was straight up a cartoon character brought to life, and he was so over it was ridiculous. One of the top dudes who should have been ROH champion but never was. Since going to WWE, he's still a great worker, but boy, is his personality boring. That may be WWE booking, but Zayn is no Generico, and the charisma just doesn't seem to be there anymore.
> Maybe its time for jimmy to be single star?
Who's Jimmy? haha
lol oh der.
I imagine if the DUI is a big deal, WWE will treat both Uso's like the one Uso. Classic WWE.
BOBBY ROODE BAAYYBEEEEEEE

SD guys will likely be on Raw this week.
bam zoom @DarkLink all the way from 9 to 4.
Well atleast I'm still in 2nd....wait....3rd? Et tu jaw?!
Bobby Roode sprang me into 1st baaayybeee. Let's hope for a long, prosperous title reign for the glorious one.
Enzo. Bye bye bye.
> Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. Made it from 8 to 5 tonight!
I am 9th now after 205 i guess back to 5th? That's my spot sir
Thank you Miz for making my team just a little Awesome!
Back at 1 baby!
Rumble is gonna be huge for the league
Oof...my team isn't looking so hot. Figures the week I pick up Goldust, he does nothing after getting a bunch of wins. But we can blame Enzo for that, since apparently he was supposed to have a segment with Goldust before everything went down.
I picked up Ziggler -
Hoping he comes in and wins the Rumble :)
Yeah, my team isn't looking too hot, oh well.
LETS GO JJ FOR THE RUMBLE

Guess he screwed goldust as bad as he screwed... nevermind!
> LETS GO JJ FOR THE RUMBLE
Jimmy Jacobs surprise return confirmed!!
...Actually I'd love that
Lol I thought you guys were talking Double J
There's too many Double J's in wrestling haha
Member the Roman?
Do pre-show matches count for DTB leagues? Cause Bobby Roode has a pre-show US title defense and I'd love those points.
Otherwise I'm banking solely on Brock Lesnar to defend that belt again. I can't imagine Strowman or Kane would take the belt this close to Mania. WWE probably wants to make it a Mania-to-Mania reign for Lesnar (though I'm hoping they swerve us and have Lesnar win at Mania too).
If Lesnar doesn't get me those points, it all comes down to the Rumble. Wyatt, Balor and Nak are prob just gonna be Rumble entrants.
BUT Nak is #1 as far as oddmakers go, so I might have a reeeaaal good Rumble.
they do! no ppv star points but the match itself counts
Ziggler for the win!!!! haha
also why cant I pick up my surprise entrance??!?!?!
"Ladies and Gentlemen - . . ."
Well for 1, Roman was in the Universal Title match last Rumble and we know how that went.
> Well for 1, Roman was in the Universal Title match last Rumble and we know how that
Oh yeah thanks if Kane don't win belt so he can enter rumble i want him to up his elmination numbers
> Ziggler for the win!!!! haha

> . . . - EC 3
Well damn. Hoping he was going to be in the rumble. But glad to see him over.
Please don't ruin him
EC3 is weeeaak
> EC3 is weeeaak
You are in -
Trouble trouble trouble trouble!!!!!
Would still love to see EC3 in the rumble. Really curious who's gonna win the men's rumble. Nakamura? Reigns? Ziggler? Cena? And is anyone buying that rousey won't be involved?
Come on Ziggler!! I picked you up for a reason!
Roode with a US title defense, nasty NAK WITH THE RUMBLE WIN
Do the Final 4 get points? If so, Balor also raked some in. But I don't imagine those are points they award.
Just need a Lesnar title defense to really top the night off.
And I think you're gonna get it. Talk about a HUGE night. Goodbye #1 spot!
Alright sheamus, rousey, it's up to you guys now to get me back in first
