Ok, the WWF will split the rosters on Monday, and everybody is trying to make guesses on who would go where. The WWF really hasn't said much, beyond that HHH and Jazz are floaters. I would like to see how people would choose a crew if they were given the chance to decide. Because I think having two floaters is stupid, because if there was a true split nobody would interact with both sides, there won't be floaters when choosing your crew. Other than that here are the basics for picking your crew:


(A) Only Wrestlers under WWF contract can be picked.
(B) You will get a Primary and Secondary Title.
(C) For those two Titles, you get 10 wrestlers.
(D) You can have either the Tag and Women's Division or the Cruiser weight division.
(E) Tag and Women, you get 5 tag teams and the entire women's division.
(F) Cruiserweights, you get 10 wrestlers.


So as a bare minimum, you will have 20 Heavyweight Division guys, and whatever you pick as to fill the rest of the roster. To start things off, I'll choose my crew. Oh, and where I put them in numbering doesn't mean where I'd put them on the card. With that said...

Heavyweight Division
1) Chris Benoit
2) Steve Austin
3) Chris Jericho
4) Kurt Angle
5) Booker T
6) Steven Regal
7) Test
8) Edge
9) RVD
10) DDP
11) Al Snow
12) Curt Hennig
13) Tazz
14) Rhyno
15) D-Lo Brown
16) Mark Henry
17) Rico Constantino
18) Brock Lesnar
19) John Cena
20) Leviathan

Cruiserweight Division
1) Tajiri
2) "Hurricane" Helms
3) Shannon Moore
4) Jaime Knoble
5) X-Pac
6) RC Haas
7) EZ Money
8) Dean Malenko
9) Taka Michinoku
10) Funaki

What are are criteria? are we doing

a) characters we like and think can kick ass
b) characters we think can put on good matches with each other and have a range of styles, etc.
c) characters we think will draw the most money?
d) a totally kayfabe draft?

I don't know about the last one. I mean, even Flair and Vince aren't doing a totally kayfabe draft. They are picking the entertainers who they can build a business on, not the guys who are the best wrestlers.

I went with b and c, but c is what you have to take into consideration most because you want to make money not just short term but long term as well.

Dean Malenko's retired, RC Haas is injured (and may be too heavy to be a cruiserweight), I wasn't aware EZ Money (Jason Jett) was working for the WWF now...if he is I can't envision him being called up ahead of other, less green workers

who's John Cena?

All you need is Kurt Angle and The Big Show, and the rest will fall into place nicely.
