    Fantasy Booking - Indy Tourney 2020 - Who you inviting?

    Been reminiscing on the old TPI shows and how they used to be a highlight of the wrestling calendar. A tourney inviting some of the very talent from the indy scene and running a bunch of unique and top tier matches where guys match up or contrast stylistically. Same deal as the BOLA.

    So armchair booking time - you're running an indy invitational tourney in 2020 - Who you inviting? What matches you running?

    The caveat of course being you can't bring in anyone signed to a contract, so no WWE, AEW, Impact or ROH talent.

    GOOOOO!


    EDIT - Are Impact guys contracted? They work a lot of indy shows so I guess they are allowed to with permission

    The indie scene these days is so awful I couldn't imagine this not being a shitshow since there'd probably be 3 comedy guys, Nick Gage, Joey Ryan, and an intergender wrestler who sucks or a bunch of WWE rejects like Hawkins. I'm gonna sleep on this and see what happens in my brain with this fantasy world we're in. My gut is telling me there's a few guys I want like Makabe who is a top tier worker but other than that it could be interesting to cobble something together. I guess the indies kinda have a similar concept with SCI now but it's not really the same as like the TPI or Super 8 days.

    Here's a 16 man tournament off the top of my head in 5 minutes without even using MLW or Impact talent that would be available to the indies.

    Drew Gulak Vs Daniel Makabe
    David Starr Vs Fred Yehi
    Eddie Kingston Vs Chris Dickinson
    Chris Hero Vs Kyle Fletcher
    Scotty Davis Vs Lio Rush
    ACH Vs Michael Oku
    AR Fox Vs Tony Deppan
    Ricky Night Jr Vs JD Drake

    I'd enjoy all 8 of those matches and not a meme/comedy wrestler in sight.

    I'm thinking no one is going to include him, but David Arquette seems like a great name to include. Add a few more eyes to the tournament with the available talent pool being thinner than it would have been a couple of years go.

    Yeah but who's he facing Jim?


    Drew Gulak vs Lio Rush - grappler vs flier

    Chris Hero vs Daniel Makabe - Hero vs Quack 2.0

    Eddie Kingston vs 1 Called Manders - your brawlers match

    Kevin Ku vs Fred Yehi - 2 sawed off ass-kickers

    David Starr vs Kongo Kong - Starr tries to survive the 400lb monster

    Dominic Garrini vs Anthony Carelli (aka Santino Marella) - your quasi-BattlARTS match

    Low Ki vs Chris Dickinson - stiff kicks galore

    Zack Sabre Jr vs Alex Zayne - another technical vs flier match with a different flavour

    It's such a stupid idea, but have it be a wrestler dressed up as Ghostface. Then after Ghostface wins, they can unmask and be some appealing recently released WWE talent to continue the tournament as himself. You get the mindless fun of seeing Scream in a wrestling ring and then the pop of a big surprise in the unmasking.

    Or have it be Nick Gage under the mask back for Round 2.

    A la CP Munk & Colt Cabunny

    Or Ghostface jobs, gets unmasked and it's Heath Slater, who can't beat any wrestling legends even if it's only David Arquette.
