WWE Capitol Punishment

WWE's next PPV is, Capitol Punishment.  It takes place on Sunday, June 19th, in Washington DC.  This will be a rather important PPV as some roster changes may be occurring for 2 of the MOFW teams.

Team Destiny will be eligible to replace KHARMA after the Capitol Punishment PPV and corresponding POST Raw/Smackdown events.  Speculative rumors on the net all say that she is pregnant and that she'll be out roughly 9 months.  KHARMA was originally drafted in the 6th round.  With this round having NO stipulations, Team Destiny is eligible to replace KHARMA with ANY available WWE Superstar.   How will being in last place, with only 30 points, affect this upcoming replacement?

Layla officially announced that she suffered a torn ACL and MCL last week.  She had surgery this past Thursday and is reported to be out for at least 6 months.  Bastion's Boogers will also have the option to replace Layla after the coming PPV's post Raw/Smackdown.  Unlike KHARMA, Layla was an 8th round, Diva draft.  Bastion's Boogers must replace Layla with another diva.  Luckily, the Diva's Champion, Brie Bella, is still available.  If Brie can make it past Capitol Punishment with the Diva's Championship in hand, will she be at the top of Bastion's Boogers list?

The official, WWE  Capitol Punishment poster has sparked some controversy.  In addition to it featuring Rey Mysterio and John Cena we see President Obama in a referee's shirt (see below).  Could President Obama be making a historic WWE appearance?!  One thing we know for sure is that this poster earns Bastion's Boogers and Tweez Family an additional 5 points each.

MOFW’s Wrestling Through the Decades: Part 1

All members of the Mid-Ohio Fantasy Wrestling league are products of the 80’s. Our love for wrestling was established when legends like Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Ric Flair, Sting, The Ultimate Warrior and many, many more were in their prime. It was a good time for the wrestling industry and the wrestling fans alike. We’ve decided to put together a list of the Superstars from the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s. We’ve slimmed down our rules accordingly and finished researching the PPVs of wrestling’s past. Even though it was not a PPV, we’ve decided to start with the pinnacle of wrestling events, the LEGENDARY, WrestleMania I.
Part 1: The 80’s

10 - Rick Rude
Rude won the WWF Intercontinental Championship belt at WrestleMania V, by defeating the Ultimate Warrior. With Bobby the Brain Heenan as his manager, Rude had a very successful run in the WWE, earning him a spot at number 10.

9 - Ultimate Warrior
The 1980’s saw the Ultimate Warrior win the WWF Intercontinental Championship twice. He held the IC belt through the end of `89. Warrior would steamroll his opponents through the 80’s with only one PPV defeat. With his high-energy entrance, brightly colored attire and dominating in-ring performance, the Ultimate Warrior quickly captured the hearts of fans around the world.

8 - Brutus the Barber Beefcake
Brutus was a one-time WWF Tag Team champ. A face turn in the 80’s turned him into a fan favorite. This change rolled into a lot of wins. Brutus was in the main event at the 1989 SummerSlam PPV.

7 - Tito Santana
Tito held the WWF Intercontinental Championship and was one half of the WWF Tag Team Champs. He competed in ever PPV and was victorious in the majority of his matches.

6 - Ted Dibiase
Dibiase competed in 8 PPVs, but had 10 matches. Although The Million Dollar Man never captured the WWF World Heavy Weight Championship, he was a main stay in many PPV main events.

5 and 4 - Ax & Smash, DEMOLITION
Demolition had a great run as a WWF Tag Team Champs in the 80’s. Holding the tag belts for a record 478 days. This record stands today. With two Tag Team title reigns reaching 554 days, Demolition dominated the WWE tag team division in the 80’s.

3 - Andre the Giant
Andre was featured on a lot of PPV posters in the 80’s. He competed in about half of the PPV main event. Although he captured the WWF World Heavy Weight Title in 1988, it was as a not PPV event. Most of Andre’s matches were NON title matches.

2 - Macho Man Randy Savage
Savage competed at 11 PPVs but fought in 15 matches. He held the WWF Intercontinental Championship from 1986-1987 when he dropped the title to Rick Steamboat at WrestleMania III. Savage captured the WWF World Heavy Weight Championship for the first time in 1988 at WrestleMania IV. He held the title until 1989 when he was defeated by Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania V. With Miss Elizabeth at his side, Savage has a HUGE fan favorite through the 80’s.

1 - Hulk Hogan
He was the biggest name in the 1980’s. Everyone knew the name Hulk Hogan. In his classic yellow tights and unforgettable catch phrases, Hogan became a pop culture icon. Hulk Hogan held the WWF World Heavy Weight Championship from 1984-1988 until he was defeated by Andre the Giant. He recaptured the title in 1989 by defeating Macho Man Randy Savage at WrestleMania V. He held the title through the end of `89 until he “passed the torch” to the Ultimate Warrior in 1990. Hogan was on all the PPV promotional posters and competed in 85% of the PPV main events.

I find myself looking forward to Tough Enough every Monday almost more than watching Raw. I watched a bit of the original TE on MTV years ago. This new season is incredible. I have to say I have a new appreciation for Stone Cold Steve Austin. He brings an amazing compassion to the ring as well as plenty of laughs.

We will conduct a Supplemental Draft on OCT. 24th. Some of these contestants show that they may have a bright future in the WWE. We'll see if any of them are picked up on OCT 14th.

I looked the video below up on youtube. This was filmed the night after WrestleManiaXXVII. This was our first real look at the TE contestants. I find it intersting to to see how they handle being out in the ring compared to their performance on the TE show. If you have not seen the show I highly suggest that you check it out: WWE Tough Enough

The WWE's Over the Limit PPV Card so far...

We are all SUPER excited for this weekends PPV.  It'll be interesting to see how things play out.  This is the current card.  As always, "card subject to change."

Wednesday, May 18, 2011


By the end of the 2011-2012 season, one team will walk away with the ultimate prize, the Mid-Ohio Fantasy Wrestling Trophy.  This trophy represents one very important thing...
Bragging Rights
With this Friday's Smackdown main event spoilers on the web we know where each team ranks before the first PPV of the season, WWE's Over the Limit.  Is this a sign of how the points will add up in the end?  
Will Hustle, Loyalty, Respect and a bit of AWESOME be enough to keep Tweez Family on top? 
Will Team Destiny and Alberto Del Rio capture Gold this season?
Was Y2J a risky pick for Bastion's Boogers (pun intended)?
Will Team Minor Threat live up to its name? 

SURVEY TIME: Who would you draft first?

It is important to point out that the MOFW draft took place on April 27th, 2011.  Just a 1 day after the completed WWE Draft and roughly 4 days before the WWE Extreme Rules PPV.  At the time, The MIZ was on a 160 day reign as WWE Champion.

There was a lot of surprise over The MIZ being picked 6th in our draft.  Was it a smart move to overlook, at that time, the WWE Champ?  Only time will tell.

MOFW wants to know who you would draft first.  We placed a convienient survey to the right of our page.  You can pick from the 8 Superstars drafted in the first two rounds.  We want to hear your opinions.

Voting ends on Juue 15th, @ midnight. SO VOTE TODAY!!!

“Why Fantasy Wrestling,” you ask? Well…Why Not!?

Over the years, I've participated in several Fantasy sport events; baseball, basketball and football. I have done well in all, especially football. I’m a lifelong wrestling fan. Some of my fondest memories of growing up with my little brother are of the countless hours we spent watching old WWF video tapes. I was even fortunate enough to witness the LEGENDARY ECW match between Bam Bam and Taz where they crashed through the ramp. ECW Heatwave 1998, in Dayton, Ohio… good times.

I’ve always wondered what a fantasy wrestling league would be like. A few months ago, I was entertained and inspired by Pro Wrestling Report’s fantasy draft, PWRDRAFT. The PWRDRAFT started after Wrestlemaina 27. I was instantly hooked. For three weeks straight it was all I talked. Eventually I started campaigning to convince my friends and fellow wrestling fans to start our own Fantasy Wrestling League. After much planning, debating, arguing and compromising we all came to an agreement. We set the rules, our draft stipulations and the draft date.

The only wildcard in my drafting strategy was where I would be picking. The day of the draft we picked numbers out of a hat to dictate the order. I was initially pretty disappointed by having to pick 3rd. I really wanted Cena on my team and I just knew he would not be available by the 3rd pick. I had to wait while Danny (Team Destiny) and Derek (Bation’s Boogers) picked before me. I figured that picking third, I was going to get Alberto Del Rio. Not a bad pick, after all he did win the Royal Rumble. History dictates that he will wear the WWE or World Heavyweight Title at some point.

Much to my surprise, Danny picked Del Rio first. Next was Derek, who is a HUGE Cena Hater. When the “Cena Sucks” chants start at our local, Nationwide Arena, he’s one of the guys chanting. Orton was his best pick to not compromise his wrestling fan morals by picking Cena. As luck would have it, I got Cena with the 3rd pick. I was so excited! I knew he was going to be the top guy this year with the most points.

Robbie finished out the first round with the 4th pick. He made a somewhat surprising choice by going with CM Punk. At that point, I started thinking about who I could get in the 2nd round. It would all depend on Robbie's 2nd round pick. It’s important to note that we did our draft order in a 1-4, 4-1 rotating order.  Considering the MIZ was still available, I was hoping for Wade Barrett. To the amazement of everyone, Robbie picked Christian as his 2nd round pick. Thanks again to Lady Luck, I got the Miz. He was the WWE champ at the time. This guaranteed me at least one PPV main event with the MIZ either defending his title or attempting to regain it in a rematch.

At that point, I was pretty happy. In Fantasy Football Drafts I’ve always tried to get a WR and QB from the same team. You can double up on points with a touchdown pass if you have both guys. I tried to do the same thing in the MOFW draft. It worked out as I was able to pick up Big Show and Kane, the current WWE Tag Team Champs, with my 3rd and 4th draft picks

We are now just a few days away from WWE’s Over the Limit PPV. I have never been more excited for a fantasy league. I have always loved WWE and now I find myself loving it even more. My buddies,  who are like most wrestling fans, are quick to criticize the WWE.  They have been devoted to WWE televised events over past few weeks.  I have to agree with Danny’s previous post, we started MOFW with the intent of it being larger than just the four founding fathers.

If you love WWE/Wrestling I’d suggest starting your own Fantasy Wrestling Draft, especially if you enjoy fantasy sports. Shoot us an email for more details on how we got things started. Pull the rules off our site to revise and start your own league. Send us your thoughts and comments.

Once again, special thanks to the best wrestling Radio show, TV show and Wrestling Website... Pro Wrestling Report. Thanks for the inspiration.

What is Mid-Ohio Fantasy Wrestling?

Over the past few days we've received several questions about MOFW. Maybe I can answer a few.

"What is Mid-Ohio Fantasy Wrestling?"

MOFW is just as its name implies, a fantasy wrestling league. It was started in Mid-April of 2011 by four life-long wrestling fans, Josh Mustacchio, Derek Watson, Danny Cooper and Robert Reeder. Well, Josh is more of a Sports Entertainment kinda guy. All credit goes to him for the concept.  Well, in all fairness all credit should go to the PWR Wrestling Show, as their fantasy draft was the inspiration behind MOFW.  Josh is an avid fan of PWR.  He is even planning on joining them down in Miami next year for WrestleMania 28.  He never misses a podcast.  A few months ago two of the hosts decided to do a fantasy draft (which I recommend checking out on their website: PWR Wrestling Show).  They had an even mix of WWE Superstars and TNA Impact Wrestlers. After pitching the idea to us several times, we all agreed that it sounded like fun.

After much, "deliberation," we set our rules. The 2011 MOFW season started several days after the WWE Raw/Smackdown draft. It was also decided that we would stick with WWE talent for this year's draft.

"Is it too late to join in this season?"

Unfortunately, yes it is. However, that doesn't mean you can't start your own Fantasy Wrestling draft. Our goal is to make MOFW something that is larger than the four of us. The rules that we have established are meant to be an outline that inspires others to start their own Fantasy Wrestling drafts. Very much like the PWR Wrestling Show's fantasy draft that inspired us.

This draft has been a lot more fun than I anticipated. I've caught myself hoping that Superstars I despise will pin one of my favorite Superstars.  This draft has been insanely rejuvenating.  If you have a love for wrestling I highly recommend you and your friends give a fantasy draft a shot. If you are interested in more info of how we set things up, shoot us an email at:

If you are reading this, I hope that you find these blogs entertaining and hopefully inspiring. If you have any ideas or subjects that you may find interesting, please send us an email.
