(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.)
Correct. When Eric K. signed Bull Pain, he also got the Texas Hangmen because Pain owns the gimmick. Three for one, can't beat that!
it could actually work out as a four for one deal!
after doing a little wiki searching of the Texas Hangmens past, Bull Pain/Psycho had 2 different Hangmen partners! Seems most of us remember the Texas Hangmen Killer & Psycho from AWA and they were also big in WWC in Puerto Rico. Killer was a guy named Mike Moran. There was another guy named Tom Benninghaus who wrestled teamed with Psycho in USWA & WWC, he was known as Texas Hangman Strangler. This guy was also Tough Tom from WCW's Disorderly Conduct who teamed with Mean Mike (aka Mike Moran aka Hangman Killer). So all 3 of the guys have a history of teaming together.
so we could get: Bull Pain Texas Hangman Psycho Texas Hangman Killer Texas Hangman Strangler
Not really J. Bull Pain signed for the use of the Texas Hangmen name. I'm looking for the stats to be the AWA version of the team, whichever two it was. Not necessarily cards for all the guys who worked as the Texas Hangmen. As suggested on the other board someone thought it would be possible to get just one card that represents both members of the Texas Hangmen because there was little to no difference between them.
Daivari, CW Anderson, and Jim Powers. I was actually too young to remember Jim Powers with the Young Stallions (and didn't make enough of an impression on me from my grandfather's old wrestling tapes like Jim Brunzell did), but he was my favorite jobber on WWF Superstars as he, like Brunzell, was one of the jobbers who I really thought had a chance to beat the big name heel.
Daivari is all kinds of awesome and could be used well as a manager too.

RE: The Texas Hangmen
If they get a spot in the set, they will take up two spots. This is a 4 wrestler PDF, so if they're the top or second place vote getters, they will each have a card. The hazards of putting a tag team in a voting poll, I guess.
I know people mentioned having them on one card, but I think we'll do them separately. I don't like that as an option, unless it was a jobber tag team, like the Executioners or maybe the Thunderfoots.
The "three for one" comment referred to Bull Pain signing for Bull Pain and Hangmen Killer & Psycho since he owned the gimmicks.
