Re: TNA Wrestling: Rebirth
Well you seem new to this so I'm going to give you some feedback.
Your back story should be longer. It doesn't need to be a book but a somewhat detailed story on how the Jarrett's convinced the Carters to sell, why Jerry Jarrett returned to wrestling after 9 years of being out of it and seemingly showing no interest in coming back an explanation on how you convinced a lot of these guys to return to TNA after being burned by them should be in the back story as well.
Roster wise you have a lot of unrealistic guys there:
Christian Cage is in WWE, CM Punk is retired and it'd probably take millions to get him out of retirement, Kurt Angle is almost 100% returning to WWE, Matt Morgan is retired, Nigel McGuiness is loyal to ROH, Orlando Jordan I think lives in Australia now and has a life here, Ron Killings is with WWE and Sting is with WWE.
To add to those Amazing Red recently retired, Jay Lethal is under ROH contract, Petey Williams is also retired. Paul London has said he'd never go to TNA and Knockouts wise Kong has said she'd never go back to TNA, Daffney can never wrestle again to my knowledge.
Generally when you pick a roster to start with you want to research the guys and make them realistic options because if you have a bunch of retired wrestlers on your roster it's very hard for a reader to get into the story. It's also better to introduce all your new talent during shows rather than just putting them in the opening post because then it shows thought process and intelligence behind booking it.
Ultimately I wouldn't end this but these are just tips for the future if you ever do something again. You want to make things as realistic as possible (Like a book or a film) to really hook a reader and have them interested in what you're doing.
Good luck, I'm looking forward to your first show.
