question was simple: if you were placed in charge of
a new wrestling promotion, and you were allowed to
draft any five wrestlers in the world to headline
your promotion, who would they be? Many factors
would go into your decision. Drawing power, workrate.
charisma, interviews, selling ability, attitude,
age, injuries; these were the main factors involved
in choosing your five franchise wrestlers. Wade
Keller of the Pro Wrestling Torch conducts this poll
annually, and he deserves credit for the concept.
Below the winners are listed in order; the point
system is as follows: #1 draft pick receives five
points, #2 draft pick receives 4 points, etc. In our
next issue I will list my own choices, and will
evalute the choices of our readers.

up through the ring, followed by a body. A man
dressed in all black, with a hat come up. He turns
Saturn around and gives him a inverted-russian leg
sweep. He takes off his hat and clothes to reveal

my booking plan for Shawn Michaels. At the next Pay
Per View he will go back into DX. He will be
scheduled to fight Triple H but Triple H will let
Michaels win by disqualification so Triple H could
keep the belt but Michaels gets the win. He will
then be scheduled to fight Kane. He will come out
victorious because DX distracted Kane giving Michael
enough time to deliver a Piledriver which could get
Kane down for the 3 count. By this time, Undertaker
will have beaten Stone Cold for the belt and
Michaels will face him. Michaels will win it and
then the Champion now will be Shawn Michaels. About
a month later, The Rattlesnake will be the number #1
contender and will face Michaels. He will beat him
up for a while and then deliver the stunner for the
1-2-3 count. Stonecold will end up with the belt
