What channel is the main show on? The channel makes a big difference as well.

Booking the Royal Rumble match is a pain. I know the biggest problem is your booking different wrestlers with different styles against each other but I once booked a small version of one and put nothing but solid wrestlers (Jericho, HBK, Bryan Danielson, etc.) and they still barely put out a 74%.

On a different note, anybody get a 100% match rating? Got one last night with Bryan Danielson vs. William Regal. The fans weren't into it, so the overall suffered but hey 100% is 5 star rating.

You're not going to be able to compete with the 7's and 6's of Smackdown or RAW or TNA's 4's, but for HDnet you're not doing that badly I would assume considering it's probably the best you can get.

Until you gather prestige/momentum and grow you're not going to be able to grab a major TV deal. Relish the shows you have, keep growing with them and promote the hell out of your matches. Show videos of the fued (vid 1v1 type things) and have backstage segments and such. I know it's not the ROH way, but I'm not talking about overdoing it I'm saying do it so that you hype it up that people really want to see it. Like the recent PPV for ROH, their biggest one, they hyped the hell out of the main event and was almost willing to plop down the money to see it (long story why I couldn't) That's how you'll grow man, because you're INDY and it takes time.

Congratulations on getting two shows though that's very impressive.

Royal Rumble is SO difficult to book I'm with ya man. The only way to really book it is for the actual royal rumble (WWE) that's the only time I've ever done well with it. It's just not a high appeal match, it always feels thrown together and a lazy booking that the WWE exploits (like the lumberjack matches) I dunno I wouldn't rely on it, it never works out great.

The best I ever did was in my 2006 TNA game with Samoa Joe vs Kurt Angle. I did the angle for Bound for Glory and Samoa Joe was actually a heel in a faction. So Kurt comes into the fed and has to battle through all of Joe's lackey's before he finally reaches Kurt. When he did, I edited in the headbutting segment and hype the hell out of that match. Then I had Kurt have a friend (AJ) in a 2v2 the ppv before BFG which resulted in AJ turning on Kurt and helping out Joe because of the money. Then Kurt finally got the match on IMPACT after attacking the authority figure and causing havoc all over the place. Moral of the story I guess? He won it at BFG I got a MAJOR rating and TNA soared up and actually beat WWE that night.
(-Sorry if that was too much it was just one of my favorites I also did one in my WCW 2000 game which was crazy but that's for another time-)

Anyway good luck man! Oh and I owe you one over at EPW!
