SvR Meets B/R: The Draft: 8 New Superstars, 2 Brands Divided
SvR Meets B/R has provided the Bleacher Report universe thus far with six superstars created in the likeness of our very own B/R writers, myself included. We've seen one champion crowned, and have waited for the roster split before opening up the regular series of SvR Meets B/R. Today marks that day, eigh new superstars have been created, more than doubling the total to 14 superstars/writers. With that said, the brands were selected by random draft, meaning each superstar was assigned a random number 1-14, and those numbers were drawn at random to match whichever brand's pick it was at the time. With that being said, I present you, the B/R Draft.
Pick 1: Raw Selects: IF YA SMELLLLLL
All jokes aside about the draft/matches being fixed, everything is completely random. I even randomized the order at which SD and Raw alternated picks, and with the first pick in the draft, Raw selects the lone champion thus far, the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, CB. How will CB fare being on top of the mountain that is Raw?
Pick 2: Smackdown selects: *Glass shatters*
With the second pick in the draft, Smackdown picks the master of nicknames himself, Gilligan Henry Dorpfeld, decked out as Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Pick 3: Smackdown Selects: *Cue Gong*
With the third pick in the draft, Smackdown selects B/R's resident phenom, JLB. How will JLB fare on SD after his recent loss at the WCW Championship?
Pick 4: Raw Selects: The Charasmatic Enigma
With the fourth pick in the draft, Raw selects Ross. What tension will stir up on Raw now that he shares a brand with the man who handed him his most recent defeat, CB?
Pick 5: Raw Selects: M...V....RJ?
With the fifth pick in the draft, Raw selects Ron Johnson, decked out as M...V...P. Will RJ be able to restore his name on virtual B/R and bring the gold home?
Pick 6: Raw Selects: On this day, he sees clearly...
Raw selects Ste Eccles as Edge with the sixth pick in the draft.
Pick 7: Smackdown Selects: Ain't No Stoppin' Him...No
With the seventh pick in the draft, Smackdown selects the Gold Standard, AkD. Can AkD end his recent losing streak and truly bring the gold back to his name?
Pick 8: Smackdown Selects: He's Comin To Get Ya?
The man himself, M, makes his virtual debut, decked out as The Boogeyman. (*As a side note, the white paint was added because it more accurately depicted his profile pic. I tried it without the paint and it didn't look the same.)
Pick 9: Raw Selects: Viva La Staehle?
Raw selects Adrian Staehle as Eddie Guerrero with the ninth pick.
Pick 10: Raw Selects: He Spits In The Face...
Raw selects Carson decked out as Carlito with the 10th pick in the draft. With six superstars selected, who will be the last superstar selected to Raw?
Pick 11: Smackdown Selects: On This Day He Sees Clearly.....Again?
With the 11th pick in the draft, Smackdown selects Krut, also decked out as Edge. Both Krut and Ste selected to be Edge, and originally I planned to create them both in opposite colors and have them duel for the ownership of Edge. After the draft results, both are on opposite brands. Which Rater-R Superstar will reign supreme, Smackdown's or Raw's?
Pick 12: Smackdown Selects: The Shaman of Sexy
Will Howard gets drafted to Smackdown with the 12th pick in the draft. Will he fare better on an individual brand?
Pick 13: Smackdown's Final Pick: B/R's Resident
With the 13th pick in the draft, Smackdown selects with their final pick, Joe Burgett, as Randy Orton.
Pick 14: Raw's Final Pick: BOOP BOOP
Raw selects Shane Howard with the 14th pick in the draft. How will he fare on Raw, on the same brand as his recent rival, CB? Will he bring the Gold back with his winning streak? Or will a powerful new team be formed?
The Brands, for now, are set as:
Tag teams can now be formed to decide who faces off for which tag titles. Individual title contenders will be decided by matches, and success against other contenders, much like how it is in SvR 09.
