Give your characters their own unique histories, backgrounds, etc. There are one of two ways you can go about starting a promotion with fictional characters - either all of 'em are unknown wrestlers or they're well known within your fictional world (which could also be OUR world). You could also have a bit of both.
You also have to describe your wrestlers too. Perhaps not down to the last detail, but you'd have to describe well enough so that the reader has a mental picture in their head of what your wrestlers look like. Even a few reference pics would work too.
I'd read one, just to answer your last question.
