I doubt you'll get many answers on this because it's the most asked question in FG board history, LOL, and many players have answered it many times. However, I'll bite...
I divide my fed into 6 "sections". Each section consists of 5 cards, so 30 cards per game year. Every time a section gets completed, I add up all the wrestlers (singles and tag teams are separate) points. Here's how I do the points...
A. REGULAR MATCHES Win by pin or submission: 5 points Win by DQ or Countout: 2 points Win by forfeit: 0 points ANY Loss: 0 points Draw: 3 points to each wrestler/team Double DQ: 0 points No Contest: 0 points Double Countout: 0 points
B. TITLE SITUATIONS Win the Heavyweight/Tag Team Title: 10 points Beating the champion by pin/submission in a non-title match: 7 points Beating the champion by DQ/Countout in a title/non-title match: 4 points Defending the title successfully by pin/submission: 7 points Defending the title successfully by DQ/Countout: 4 points *If a champion defends his title successfully in any of the special matches below, Add 2 more points to his reward.
C. At PPVs, all point values get doubled, as it means more to win at a PPV (bigger audience).
After the points are tabulated, the rankings are made. If there is a tie, whoever wrestled more matches in the section gets ranked higher. If they wrestled the same amount of matches then they stay tied.
I'd be more than happy to send you my complete list of house rules. Most of my house rules were taken from other players and I just use/tweak which ones I think work best for me. To each their own!

That looks like an awesome system, and pretty simple, too!!
I'd love a copy of your house rules. I think you also mentioned on another thread that you have an injury/feud chart that you wouldn't mind sharing. I'd love that too, if you don't mind. I PM'd you my email address.
I was cleaning up some files on my computer and found this system. Not sure if it was what you were looking for. Very simple. Not sure where I got it to provide credit for the author.
The 16 Man Tournaments First choose the sixteen wrestlers to compete (we have included 16 singles competition wrestlers and 8 tag teams for a total of 32 wrestlers). Write the names of the wrestlers on each side of the sheet in the brackets below rank 4. Each of these wrestlers compete with the losers staying behind and being ranked fourth (write their names on the ranking sheet under rank 4) while the winners move on to rank 3. These wrestlers then compete. The losers stay rank 3 (place their names on the ranking sheet) and the winners move up to rank 2. These four wrestlers compete, losers stay rank 2, winners advance to rank 1, and these two wrestle over whom will be champion. Any wrestler who doesn’t compete is automatically ranked 5, the lowest rank possible. Remember disqualification counts as a loss.
Tag Team Tournaments The tag tournament plays the same as the singles tournament only with fewer ranks.
Creating a Wrestling Show After the tournament is completed you will want to accept challenges and create matches. The rules for keeping the ranking system in check are simple. A Wrestler may only face an opponent who is either one rank higher than he is or one rank lower. If a wrestler defeats an opponent who is ranked higher than he those two exchange positions on the ranking chart. If a wrestler defeats an opponent who is ranked lower than he is he has successfully defended his spot and may challenge for a higher ranking next time. Remember after a win you challenge a higher ranking and after a loss you challenge a lower ranking. At rank 5 you challenge another rank 5 wrestler. The Champion only has to face the number one contender. Although he can accept any challenge he wishes.
Accepting a Challenge If a wrestler wishes to accept a challenge from a wrestler who is far below his ranking that is up to him. If the higher ranked wrestler loses however, he switches ranks with the challenger.
Example The number one ranked Brian Blaze has elected to accept a challenge from number 5 ranked Phoenix Kidd. Somehow, against, all odds Phoenix wins the match and becomes the number one contender and Brian Blaze is ranked 5. (Poor Brian his arrogance got the better of him again.
