Default 3rd & 4th Horsemen

I was having Booker T trying to join them (as he helped the team beat a nWo team at Starrcade after Benoit was sent to rehab) ... but they were going to pick someone else and Booker was going to join the nWo and make his big singles push as a heel.

But now I need to figure out what to do with Steiner. He was going to chase the tag titles (as in Story the Outsiders "injured" Rick and took the belts from him) ... do I need to almost write the horsemen angle off and send Scott on vacation to heal or let him wrestle poorly or replace him.....

in the story, I'm pushing Flair back to chasing the World title ... so he can make that chase without the Horsemen, and DDP is fine by himself
You could just go with Booker T and Stevie Ray, Sting and Luger?, Rick Steiner and Malenko? I think I'd go with some sort of established tag team as the 3rd and 4th members(or at least two workers with great chemistry to make into a tag team).

LONG POST WARNING

And new! Just two months after beating Owen for the most prestigious title in the world, Undertaker lost it to WWF figurehead Steve Austin - who can know call himself world champion for the first time. Austinís first task proved a relatively simple one, as he beat Ahmed Johnson who was owed a title shot after Owen put him on the shelf for a month. But who will the Rattlesnake have to square off against next?

I have messed with the WWF title scene a bit too much recently and the prestige has dropped. In hindsight, Undertaker didnít need the title and never should have had it, thus his reign ended far too quickly - further damaging the prestige. Austin will hold the title now until Mania, at least, giving him six months to raise the prestige and stake his claim as the biggest wrestler in the world.

My Austin plans for Judgement Day is to have Vince announce a very special title main event, before being interrupted by Austin who will start the ball rolling on the Vince hates Austin thing. Vince will announce a six man elimination match for Austinís title at Judgement Day, which of course Austin will win.

Rock has achieved a lot of the last 12 months, including the no easy feat of remaining unbeaten. On top of this, he has actually become the most over wrestler in the world. However, he is still yet to win a title - something William Regal and Jim Cornette have taken great delight in telling him. After overcoming the wily veteran at SummerSlam, Rock hoped to move on to bigger things, but Regal had other ideas and continued taunting him. This would lead to a No DQ match at Breakdown, which Rock eventually won, but not before he got his hands on Cornette!

I decided to extend the Rock and Regal feud for one reason, I didnít have anything else for the Rock to do that didnít involve him squaring for against one of the top stars. My plan all along has been to bring Rock along slowly, beating midcarders and winning short feuds. I certainly didnít expect him to overtake Austin et al in popularity so quickly. My long term plan is a Austin showdown at Mania, but for now he will keep going the way he has been.

I had a debuting Big Boss Man attack Rock after a match a while back, so thatís who Rock will be setting his sights on next.

As for Regal, he has failed three tests for hard drugs but I havenít been able to send him to rehab because each time he has been busy in feuds. Iím going to ease off giving him anything else until he proves more reliable.

Since their inception last year, The Ministry has run roughshod over the whole WWF, but recently the first signs on cracks has formed. Sultan, desperate to prove himself, challenged and lost matches for both the IC and Euro belts. But the damage wasnít confined to just himself as he accidentally cost Undertaker his WWF title. Luckily for Sultan, Taker believes he is bigger than titles and has forgiven him for his indiscretions - but not before punishing him 1-1 in the ring.

One group looking to further widen any cracks is the recently expanded DX. With the New Age Outlaws joining forces with HHH, HBK, X-Pac and Chyna, DX is looking as strong as they ever have. Both HHH and the New Age Outlaws have had their problems with the Ministry previously and both have come out on the losing end. But will the group be able to band together and rid the WWF of the dark forces once and for all?


With Survivor Series right around the corner, the logical matchup was Ministry v DX. Although most of the guys in the groups have feuded a lot recently, the addition of HBK and Sultan should freshen it up slightly. Not sure if I should introduce a Lightweight to the Ministry ranks so it can be 5v5 or have it be 4v4 and find something else for X-Pac.

Unsure who wins this or how. Ministry have had the upper hand a lot over the NAO and HHH recently and HBK wonít take kindly to losing at a PPV. Then thereís the issue of what the groups do afterwards because they canít keep feuding.

DX have only recently formed so they arenít going to be breaking up yet and Ministry need to stay together until at least Mania season. I might play around with having DX antagonise Vince so Vince makes things difficult for them for a few months. This keeps them out the title pictures (world and tag) and gives them new feuds.

As for Ministry, it comes down to what I do at Mania. My plan was to have DX challenge Kane and Mankind for the titles, as they are owed a shot, and have Taker face off with Sid. However, Sid informed me that he will be sitting out his contract so Iíve released him. Iíll now have to find a new matchup for Taker at Mania and Kane is an obvious choice.

Iíve signed Jake Roberts to a nine month contract so I considered having him influence Kane behind the scenes before revealing himself and managing him in the build up to Taker v Kane. But this means Kane and Mankind will need to lose their titles soon and I donít want that really.

With Austin preoccupied with his WWF title shot against Taker later in the night, number one contender for the Intercontinental title, Ken Shamrock, took advantage by making Austin submit to the feared ankle lock at SummerSlam, claiming the gold in the process. The following night his celebration was cut short by the rampaging Bam Bam Bigalow, fresh off of his best of seven feud with Faarooq. Will Bam be able to use his momentum to claim the coveted IC belt or will Shamrocks ankle lock prove too much?

An easy short feud between two brawlers with momentum on their side. Bam spent a couple weeks threatening Shamrock before attacking him. Shamrock isnít losing the title here, in fact he might hold the title for quite a while, but itís a good short feud to keep a couple guys near the top occupied.

In building up the ankle lock to be some monster submission as I think that can go a couple ways in the future. Once Bam is dispatched, I donít know where Shamrock will turn his attention. I might introduce Dan Severn and have an MMA style feud for a couple months - further cementing the effectiveness of he ankle lock.

As for Bam, I might pair him with recently defeated Faarooq and have them go after Kane and Mankind for a bit. Should make for some hard hitting matchups.

After a period of absence from the WWF, Big Boss Man returned in an impactful way - by attacking Rock. He would spend the next month randomly attacking various wrestlers, with no indication as to why. Could it be linked to the sudden introduction of Shane ďson of the bossĒ McMahon?

I was a big Boss Man fan in real life so when his contract came up for renewal with WCW, I wasnít going to let him be wasted over there. I introduced him as someone who was seemingly attacking people at will, but I think Iím going to pair him up with a debuting Shane McMahon. Shane will try and convince Vince that he needs protection - an enforcer - and someone who can handle Vinces dirty work. This gives him a big role to play in a Vince v DX feud and means I can use someone like Steve Williams to bolster the enforcement.

But first, Rock will get a chance to avenge him for the attack a month previously. Obviously, Rock wonít be losing to Boss Man so I need a way to make him look strong in losing.

After winning the European title and dedicating it to Stu Hart, Bulldog proved himself to be a fighting champion by dispatching Sultan. But the soon to be father Goldust wants to make Marlene proud by claiming some gold before she leaves. Will this newly motivated Goldust prove too strong for the Bulldog?

When I got note that Marlene was pregnant, I decided to include this in a storyline. Goldust and Bulldog have been very congratulatory of one another during the build up and partnered successfully several times. During the title match, however, Bulldog pushed Goldust into Marlene before hitting a Powerbomb for the pin. Goldust, concerned for Marlene and his unborn child, carried Marlene to the back. My plan is to have Goldust return with vengeance, armed with a new mean streak, to take revenge on Bulldog for putting his woman at risk.

I will probably give Bulldog another successful month long feud and let Goldust have a month off before revisiting this. Again, itís probably too soon to pass the belt off to Goldust so I need to make him look strong in defeat.

Promising tag team The Hardy Boyz have been impressing a lot of people recently, but Kane and Mankind arenít impressed. After winning a shock number one contender match, The Hardy Boyz were laid out by the tag champions who preceded to torment them for weeks. Eventually, The Hardy Boyz managed to gain the upper hand one week before their big opportunity. But will they be able to surprise everyone and claim an historic victory?

Matt and Jeff have been putting in some solid performances and havenít had a feud just yet, so why not throw them in at the deep end? Obviously, I wasnít going to have the Hardys go over Kane and Mankind this early into their run, but I figured we could get a good underdog story going.

Kane and Mankind win before moving on to their Survivor Series matchup against DX. I donít have anything planned for the Hardys for now, so they will go back to winning midcard matches. Iím not planning on pushing them too much just yet, as they wonít sign an exclusive contract due to OMEGA commitments. Maybe Iíll pair them up with a woman and have them feud with another midcard team over her.

The Mastodon Vader is sick of being taken lightly, so what better way to prove you still have it than by destroying a former WWF champion in Owen Hart. Can Owen use his brilliant wrestling brain to overcome the threat of the monster?

After a short Owen feud with Johnson over Owen costing him his title shot, I wanted to include Owen in a big time feud so I matched him off with main eventer Vader. I had Vader attack Owen after matches and squash jobbers along the way. During their PPV match, Vader resorted to a rage DQ after Owen started getting the upper hand. This allows me to stretch the feud out for another month - maybe with a stipulation based blow off match.

Going forward, I have a plan involving a debuting Kurt Angle becoming a protege of Owen Hart. This can either end in a Mania 1v1 (but I think itís too early to have Angle go over), a Mania tag team title shot against DX or Kane/Mankind or Owen win the IC and Angle win the Euro at Mania.

Vader is showing on the time decline list but heís still got a lot to offer. Maybe a passing of the torch feud with another monster, but I donít have anyone lined up yet.

A returning X-Pac certainly made some noise by defeating Lightweight champion Jushin Liger to claim the belt. Will anyone be able to take the title off the DX member or will he reign for a long time?

X-Pac has given me a problem as heís far better than all my other lightweight wrestlers and there isnít anyone he can believably feud with. With Ministry and DX feuding, I am considering introducing a lightweight to Ministry which will allow X-Pac to take part in the Survivor Series matchup, but I donít know if thereís any lightweights available that fit the bill and have the talent to keep up.

I did have X-Pac have a month long feud with Marty Jannetty where Jannetty accused him of being disrespectful, so Iíve already used that storyline.

To further add to the problem, X-Pac just failed a drug test but I couldnít rehab him due to having the title.

So, any suggestions about where I can go with the above storylines? Iíll include a couple points below that I need advice on
  • My locker room morale has really taken a hit recently. HHH and HBK have been turning everyone against Vader, Owen and Bulldog. Excluding releasing any of the above wrestlers, is there anything major I can do to improve it?
  • WCW has started using dirty tricks on me. Is there a right time and situation to use the various tricks back?
  • Shall I keep Ministry going or break them up towards Mania?
  • Any ideas for how to use Jake Roberts?
  • I tend to host my shows in different parts of USA each week, but should I be focusing on a certain area? One where Iím already most popular?

You can keep Steiner in the Horsemen, just don't have him wrestle much, and when he does, have it be in 6 or 8 man tags. He can be involved in angles, and run-ins and stuff, and still feel like a contributing member of the faction while still minimizing his in-ring time. Heck, you can make an angle of it and have him go around in a neck brace for sympathy, then the nWo can get mad heat for taking it off when they beat him down.

I think something like that would work. I hadn't thought of making the angle out of the neckbrace. that could work. But yeah, otherwise, his stuff was going to be very limited. Luckily I was strictly planning for tag stuff, so if those matches tank a little, I'll be okay over all.

I could even just move the tag belt out of the story entirely... Horsemen vs nWo doesn't really need them.

Right. After all, the belts are ultimately meant to represent the strongest, most worthy champions at that moment. The very best of the best. And even if they are greater overall talents or more popular than the current champs, it could make perfect story sense that neither the Horsemen or n.W.o tag teamers are currently that championship caliber team. That because they are too hung up on each other they are incapable of fulfilling their true title potential while the champs you have are. However unlikely that might otherwise be.

yeah, definitely. I'm going to have to get creative to get the belts from the Outsiders, but this definitely opens the story up.

I don't want to get too carried away with triple threats to move titles, but something ridiculous like a tag team rumble might work. hahaha.

What do you do when two workers aren't very good sellers? Make it a three way match? Overbook the match?

I run a promotion based on a lot of yearly tournaments. I have the obvious ones, a female tournament, a tag tourney, a 32 man single elimination tournament, a round-robin tournament (G1) and a junior 16 man single elimination tournament.

Now... I have AAA's Rey de Reyes tournament in my grasp and I have no idea how to make it different or unique... I was thinking of having it be 2 out of 3 falls because of the heritage being from Mexico but I'm not sure if that makes it "unique" enough. Any ideas?

In the spring of 1999 with WCW I'm looking to start a Money in the Bank type match but I'm not sure what I'm going to do with is yet.

Any ideas for a new name? How about a conceptual difference?

The Case To Win The Race? Starr in the Making (Starr spelled like that because of Starrcade)
You could make it a battle royal instead, or even go for a war games ladder match if thatís a thing

This sounds like it could be a spot for my Buried Treasure match that I mentioned in the thread about personal gimmick matches. The base version would be like TNA's Feast or Fired or a Texas death match. Except the undercarriage of the ring was divided into quadrants and after you scored a fall you got to choose a ring quadrant and could use whatever if anything was under that section of ring. In your scenario, you could make it a gauntlet match. Winner of the fall gets to pick a quadrant. If they don't find the title shot, next opponent comes out and the match continues. If the title shot is found, match over. Even if there are competitors in the field who've yet to compete. Let the title shot be found early and you have ready made bookings for the next show or two for the contenders who didn't get to compete.

I dont need booking help but I need some help figuring out wtf I wanna do.


Im booking as TCW in the year 2018. My roster is stacked as stacked can get. I have 2 brands that are bloated. I have a fully separate womens division and a cruiserweight division. The CW and Women share a 1.5 hour show on Monday before my Monday A show.


My CW division is honestly nothing special at all. Bunch of guys who would otherwise be jobbers for me and are not very good compared to my midcard. So I need to figure out which direction I should go. I have 4 TV shows ATM. My A shows for my 2 brands. My B show for my women/CWs, and a standard B show which allows me me mix all the men on my roster CWs vs non CWs in random matches for my lower carders.


I was thinking about ending my CW division and splitting my Men into 3 main Brands, removing my standard B show and having 3 A shows all evently balanced as I have guys at Upper midcard who would Main Event any other company. I have Midcard guys who could also be in the Main Event of most companies Cult-under and Upper in any other National+ company.

It would allow me to split my roster and let everyone have a chance to shine on TV. My goal would be to have 1 top face on each show which is easy as I have Rocky Golden, Champagne Lover, and Gino Montero who has developed into a STUD. All 3 who are possibly 3 of the top 5 best in the world overall. Rocky is my Figurehead while CL and GM could easily be my figurehead if Rocky died .

I would in turn make my Women/CW show purely for the women and give them the entire show to themselves. But if I create a 3rd brand I would lose the "minor" brand which holds my women and CWs so that would complicate my Womens brand as TEW isnt built like that allowing 4 brands
