My question is, is there a magic number for backstage segments/interviews? I'm writing a BTB and I just can't get a grasp for the right amount, I don't want too many, but I also don't want too few.
Feuds, debuts, injuries and hypes are the main source of segments. You know you have too many when you have 8 interviews for 7 matches and 4/7th or more of the interviews were from nobodies. Feuds only need to be mentioned once or twice and the lower feuds don't need to be on tv as much. It depends on feuds and matches really. If nearly everyone is at their wits end and people are fighting and brawling and conspiracies are being thrown left and right, then I can see 9 or 10 (11 is way too much for 6 matches in my opinion). In sports entertainment, there is usually more segments then matches, unless the owner specifically wants to move out of that then there is longer matches which leaves less time for segments.

In a nutshell, in my opinion,
if you have many fueds then you should have many segments,
if you are focusing more on in ring work then you should have less,
if you want to stick to WWE focus more on the in ring work except for the major matches,
and lastly if you are leaving the WWE-style, take considerably less time on minor segments and push out more, longer matches.

I use TEW 2013 for my BTB so it's easy for me.

A 2 hour show for me will usually consist of 20+ segments in the show which will usually be 6-7 matches (That go for around 6-10 minutes) and 14-15 segments. TEW allows this to be easy though.

If you think about the wrestling we watch weekly though you're probably looking at around 20-25 segments so maybe try that.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Would it be ok to do an ECW return storyline?

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I agree although I do like realism so if you were to have ECW return it should probably be under the WWE umbrella.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Would it be a good idea to make AJ Styles WWE champion in my thread just after his debut?

Only after you have him win the Royal Rumble with no build.

It'd be a GREAT idea.
