I'm pretty pumped that the Texas Hangmen are signed. I'm a sucker for fun undercard tag teams and they were a bright spot in the dying AWA.
(Bull Pain WAS one of the Texas Hangmen, wasn't he? I don't think both members of the AWA Hangmen were the same as the Hangmen who were in WCW who also worked as Disorderly Conduct.)
Went with PN News and CW Anderson as the other two, and not because of a fetish for initials. CW's a good undercard-type heel (and hell, he'd finally be someone JJ Dillon could conceivably manage so we can get that card out already) and PN...well, the gimmick was absurd but not really any worse than Men on a Mission and he's a guy who'd actually be some fun in game form moreso than in real life. Actually, his work as American Avalanche/Cannonball Grizzly in Europe is said to be pretty good.
Good to see Blue Meanie finally getting his card released!
I voted for Shawn Daivari. I signed Daivari 2 years ago down in Phoenix at the Ring of Honor show me and Knapik attended before I went to Wrestlemania 26 the next day. Whenever Daivari gets his card released, in my fed I plan to use him at first in a similar role for the Iron Sheik that Daivari played in the WWE for Muhammad Hassan.
My other two votes went to Jim Powers and CW Anderson.
CW Anderson was a must for me. I always liked him and I currently have an Extreme Horsemen faction that he would be perfect for.
My next vote went to Johnnie Stewart. Being from Minnesota I have to give the AWA guys love.
Lastly, I went with PN News to add some WCW flair to that list.
I would be happy with any of them. The Texas Hangmen would be another fun tag team to add to the tag ranks. I could see some good matches in LOW for them already.
Shawn Daivari is someone I enjoy and is another local MN guy. I believe he is billed as being from Iran which would make him an obvious team-up for the Iron Sheik.
No matter what, I am looking forward to seeing this set.

Jim Powers- has been signed since 2009 and only now gets nominated for a pdf release? IMO this is a questionable choice at best given some of the cards that have been released over the last three years. His card should have been out years ago, no question about it in my mind.
It's hard to go against the Hangmen, but those are my three picks.
