You know? It's a shame Randy Savage was taken so early... I would have liked to have had Heather Swanson vs Chyna for the RWF transgender championship.

It seems the 11th round so far has been all about steals. Bayley, Sting, Samoa Joe, and Kairi can all be called great grabs for the 11th round. 

Good to see my girl Kairi taken. Thumbs Up Put her in a good match, Rico. Smile

I also note that while Rico's RWF lost out on Bayley here (assuming he was eventually going after her); I also lost out on Bayley in my last all women's card. So this is one more time she's not on the same roster as the other Horsewomen.

The funny thing is - I'd picked Kairi and then edited my pick to Bayley - simply because I dont think Io v Bayley has happened but Io Kairi has multiple times 

Great pick Rico

I had plans for two different matches I couldn't make up my mind about since I didn't have room for both. Bayley was in one of them, so when #Heel took Bayley, I was actually relieved, because she wasn't Kairi or the woman I have planned as her opponent, nor one of the two from the other singles match I really want, nor is she in one of my planned tag teams, like Io was. 

I had planned on Io & Mio Shirai as one of my tag teams. I ended up scrapping my other tag team as a result of Io being drafted as well. Now I am going in a completely different direction.

For the record, the best match for Io is vs Asuka, as while they've faced each other in tag competition, and Kana has faced Mio Shirai many times, I can find no record that Io and Kana have ever had a singles match. WWE would be stupid to squander this opportunity. They have to book that match and give it a big build and plenty of time at a PPV. Preferably after the Kabuki Warriors break up and feud. Asuka can Challenge for whichever women's title Io wins in the meantime.

Correction, I was actually on plan D for my tag match. Once the Revival went early on in the draft, I had plans to do The Colossal Connection vs Team Hell No and almost took D Bry in the 5th. I was actually in the process of looking for pictures of Daniel Bryan to post for my pick (usually a sign to myself that my mind is made up) and then decided to go with Seth Rollins instead. Both Bryan and Kane later went in the 6th, taken by #Heel and shizzel respectively. 

Plus of course I initially had plans to team Hennig & Hall before Russ Bus took The Bad Guy. I thank Russ for his courtesy trade offer until I decided to go in another direction. 

Now I finally secured my tag match by a hair, or more precisely by the blade of a chainsaw. 

I agree with Rico that WWE better be careful about the eventual Io vs Asuka match.

Oh this happened to me at least four times so far this season. I had plans for a few that were taken on me; but that's of course the nature of the game. I missed Keith Lee by two picks. I adjusted my plans and postponed others. 

I think we are at a good pace with the picking; we are actually averaging a round a day. Now that everyone knows we are up and running and where they pick we are just rolling. 

As said this Ticket Wars has seen the most drastic shift in who is selected and who is selected early. That in turn pushes other talent that usually go in the early rounds to the later rounds. But with us being at about 3/4 through the draft, I realize that there are many classic picks that traditionally would be taken early and be placed in prominent matches on people's cards might not be taken at all. Many talented performers will be left undrafted this time around. 

For me, I am intentionally leaving certain guys on the table and making matches I want. I think it may be the same for other players. Each Ticket Wars season I am in the mood for something different so many times even though I may like such and such a performer I go for what is on my mind or what I feel like seeing this season. 

I also find myself being torn between making matches that I feel might get my card more tickets when the nights of war begin versus making matches I myself would like to see and thus want to make. I more often than not err on the side of making matches I myself want to see. Maybe, maybe other people will see the same thing I do in them. 

But missed picks aside, I am happy with my roster so far. I have a mix of new and old school, which I feel is what an ideal roster should be.
