Honestly, I see nothing wrong picking wrestlers from the WrestleMania Era to present. This includes WCW(NWA-WCW), ECW and TNA wrestlers.

I think anything from the Territory Era and before is way out of the mainstream. So no NWA(pre-WCW affiliation) or AWA stuff.

I watched plenty of wCw, TNA, and WWE, but i've found that a lot of WWE viewers have no clue about what happen in wCw/ECW or what's TNA's history (let alone their present).

WWF/E alone has a lot of history filled with good enough characters to choose from.

Oddly enough, i never want it too. I respect Sting more for never having been in WWE. They have a bad habit of making outside promotion legends look a lot less legendary. DDP is a legend yet you'd never know it from his short WWE run.

I'll admit, I know nothing about TNA's core wrestlers like AJ Styles, Samoa Joe. I was already losing a lot of interest as a wrestling fan by the time TNA become a house-hold name.

I've seen enough ECW and WCW as a kid, and read enough about it to know.

DDP was past him prime when he joined in late 2001 for the Invasion angle.

DDP primed out from 97-99.

So enoughsaid can act as a judge for all match-ups. That'll actually be really useful.

He was also dealing with injuries from what I read.

Goldberg, Benoit and Booker T were the only former WCW World champs got main event status. Booker T was more of an upper mid-card/low-card main eventer in the WWE.

They did push a lot of former WCW/ECW mid-carders though. Austin, Rey, RVD, Jericho, Guerrero, etc.

But yeah, they don't have a good tract record of giving former world chapms from other promotions the proper run.

Will it be just one user's team vs. another user's team?

DDP was still very good by the time wCw died and the Invasion started. His whole yoga for regular guys thing has kept him in great shape even up to today. WWE simply "depowered" all of wCw's power players. The only people who really got a push were Rey Mysterio and Sean O'Haire.
