Re: EWR Version 4.0
Writers doesnt matter, go on the meeting section, ask sophie what skill lvl of staff you can get (e.g. Mine is 75) then hire whoever is closest to that on the staff section.
Wrestlers - I realise im gonna sound like a TNA mark here but Christopher Daniels and AJ Styles are great choices. Try signing both Jimmy Rave and Tiger Mask IV to written contracts and having them fued (Keep them on Dark matches for a few weeks). They have always got 3/5 ratings in their matches and they're really cheap ^^. Also Low Ki is a fairly good guy to have on your roster, Tajiri and either of the Hardyz can be useful as well. It really depends on what lvl you are as im only cult.
You can always go on meeting, then ask the scouting dep to tell you whose free and talented. Ideally go for younger guys though.
Always go for written contracts if possible. This protects them from being snatched by other feds, plus if you use them more then once a month its guaranteed to be cheaper.
