You may have heard that the first ever PWCS Draft is taking place ahead of this season! Greg Jovi is set to kick it off NEXT SATURDAY NIGHT in Granite City, IL with his announcement of the first overall pick,

But what exactly is the draft? How will it affect the league going forward! It’s time to finally spill the beans!

The PWCS Draft will, indeed, be an every off-season event! The league has put the draft in place for many reasons. Among them, it will set roster limits to prevent teams buying up as many mercenaries as possible. It will also allow teams to have a “bench” if you will, preventing last minute scrambling among other reasons.

Teams will now be required to keep their rosters at 6 wrestlers each. The PWCS Draft will be a supplemental draft, meaning teams will only pick until they have filled all 6 spots.

At the end of every season, if teams do not come to an agreement to re-sign their wrestlers or if the wrestler chooses to opt out of their team, they will enter the PWCS Draft Pool (EX: Jake Dirden being unable to come to terms with The Resurgence this season). Currently, the four team’s rosters are constructed as follows….

Submission Squad: Gary Jay, Pierre Abernathy, Evan Gellistico
Ego Busters: KC Karrington, Danny Adams, Adam Caster
Resurgence: Steven Kennedy, Mat Fitchett, Davey Vega
Blacklist: Makaze, JoJo Bravo, Jake Parnell, Alex Rudolph, Outtkast, and Mike Outlaw

As you can see, The Blacklist already have 6 wrestlers. They have mutually decided to part ways with Nate Redwing, as he explores options outside of PWCS. Makaze was quoted, “We are a band of brothers in the Blacklist. And I will not cut guys just to see if there are greener pastures out there. We stick together, its what has gotten us this far.”

So with the Blacklist filled up, that means the Ego Busters, Submission Squad, and Resurgence till need to round out their 2016 Rosters. The draft order will go in reverse of the 2015 Standings and will be as follows.

Pick #1: Ego Busters
Pick #2: Submission Squad
Pick #3: The Resurgence

The order will be repeated until all four teams have six wrestlers. And don’t worry, these “bench” wrestlers will not be sitting waiting for their time to shine. The league is already working on creative ways to make sure these guys stay fresh and get plenty of ring time.

Its an exciting time in PWCS! Be there NEXT SATURDAY! Tickets available at PWCSWrestling.com
