Guys, I am wanting to start a promotion, not to put on here "At the start." Could you give me some ideas on how big to make it, and so on. I like to use LOW, and ROH and Chikara and Evolve wrestlers. I am disabled to I have a very lot of time during days to pull this off. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you

40 wrestlers is a good number to start with. It's easy to get overwhelmed. Make sure you pick wrestlers of varying skill levels. You don't want a top-heavy fed that has 10+ main eventers. 6-8 matches per show, one show per game week, longer PPV shows as often as you want to schedule them. I figure out what big matches I want to do and work backward from there but there are all kinds of ways to book your fed.
It seems like we just had a thread similar to this one in the last couple weeks. Can someone point larry to it?
I would suggest you check out some of the excellent feds on the board to see how other people play out their feds.
I would suggest a spread sheet as a quick way of tracking your results.
Posting detailed results on the board can be both fun and a challenge at times.
You will need to decide a system for introducing new talent. There are plenty of promoter made charts out there for this purpose. You may want to check out the David Marquez card. Personally I don't have a set timeline for bringing in fresh competitors but I do have order of sets I will draw from. That way I have an idea who will be next and I can book the storylines as necessary.

A lot of the time, I think of a fun concept to center it around. I do the Crockett Cup(it's alive, just hasn't been posted) which is a team based league with only one title to win at the end so it doesn't matter what happens, everybody wants the one title. A Texas based one that's a celebration of Texas wrestling and a new take on territories, and now I'm gonna do something on the side that riffs off those All-Star Tours that basically spend tons of cash to get names that have been on TV. Think that Hogan vs Flair tour of Australia a few years ago. Sometimes, the roster size doesn't matter. Throw stuff at the wall. If you have a big concept or a big idea for it, do it. The lead in and build doesn't have to be the best, but as long as that moment is just as cool as you imagined, it's worth it.
