I would but I would have to have like a 100 million pounds to start with because starting anything like this your gonna make a loss for years before you do break even or turn profit name for the company only got something lame like Ulitmate Wrestling Entertainment because i agree with wwe that you cant be boxed in on just wrestling you wont make major money and if you dont make major money you cant get bigger names or talent or increase the pay of your talent I would call them wrestlers wouldnt go into films though.

I would have 2 on a occasions 3 tv shows bare in mind im in the UK so Wednesday,Tuesday and Monday nights Wouldnt have name for the shows like UFC just have company name abreviated and 1,2,3 etc I wouldnt try to compete with WWE just it would be a different league like in football/soccer you the english league,spainish league,italian league etc and they transfere between them maybe try and work WWE and loan talent that they arent using or doing anything with like zack rhyder by offering to pay his basic rate of pay so wwe dont lose money PPVs every 6 weeks

Talent Not big on Indie women wrestlers but heres the 20 guys Id want

CM Punk(if the rumors are that his contract expires soon and wants time off it could be possible if i was doing it now)

The UK KID(trained by shawn michaels no less calls his superkick the british lovetap a great heel he came out to the ring in an event i went to and everyone was chanting UK Kid he cut this promo and by the time he handed the mic back to the announcer every chanted UK Pussy,deserves the big time i think)

If i had the money to start my own company, i would hire my own original talent, but then also hire a load of ex WWE talent and put them over my originals.

Oh wait...

Well in retrospect this needs more details such as Network (if any) or rather said form of broadcast (mostly if its TV or the Internet), Headquarters or main broadcast location (like TNA/IW does in Florida) or if they will travel the country (a la WWE) and other quirks like that.

So if I had the money to start my own wrestling company I'd build it in Canada show it across TNT or a monthly charged website with cheap prices of course, dont wanna scare people away by having them pay over $50 a month at first >=) I'd travel outside of Canada for PPV's or special events across alliances I would form with companies around the world AAA and ROH just to set an example.

I would call it The Elite Wrestling Empire and have 2 shows on Tuesdays and Fridays called Mayhem and Frenzy respectively, have real people as a booking team no former wrestlers or overhyped people like Hogan, Bischoff or Heyman (sorry to those who like him but I feel its true), have former wrestlers act as scouts, trainers or considerably on a producer's role, etc.

Promote like a moth'f'r via TV, radio, posters, local sports events, etc. around Canada and the places where the PPV's would be held. Have great entertainment like maybe a house band for intermissions, contest for backstage passes or merchandise like shirts, masks, etc. and so on and so on.

Make sure all or most of the talents are signed for at least 3 years with the options to participate in other non televised promotions if they are not used on TV (much like Eric Young has in TNA) under regular pay of $500-1,000 per show and maybe $2-4,000 if they are champion over a schedule of 30+ weeks or something so they can rest and spend time with family and whatnot a year thats an average of about $15-30,000 as a regular employee to a raise of $60-120,000 a year if youre a champ a year for 3 years is $45-90,000 to $180-360,000 for the duration of the contracts via 30 wrestlings contracts you do the math.....phew!!! but I understand those prices are a bit low so yeah again do the math with even more money.......yeah I know!!!!

Now the key aspect the talent:

20 wrestlers across 3 major separations which are Main Eventers, Midcarders and Tag Teams

6 Main Event stars: C.M. Punk, A.J. Styles, Bryan Danielson, Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe

6 Midcarders: Petey Williams, Nick Nemeth aka Dolph Ziggler to most of you, Erick Stevens, MVP, from recently enjoying one of his videos I'll say PAC and Jay Lethal

4 Tag Teams (8 wrestlers): Beer Money, The Briscoes, The Kings of Wrestling and MCMG

My ten women who I'd call Vixens would be:

Mickie James, The Canadian Ninjas, Daffney, Chistina Von Eerie, Lizzy Valentine, Lita, Jazz, Serena Deeb and MsChif

Other talents I'd hire over time: Ken Doane, Teddy Hart, Young Bucks, WGTT, LAX, etc...

Titles: EWE World Championship, EWE Tag Team Championships, EWE Vixen's Championship and the EWE Intercontinental Championship

Rest of Staff:

Commentators: William Regal and JBL
Backstage Interviewer: Torrie Wilson
Ring Announcer: Lillian Garcia

That about covers everything one would need to start his/her own wrestling company.

Sorry, couldn't keep it at 20 lol. I've spent a lot of time thinking about this.

Name: Rather not say.

Titles: Florida/North American/World Heavyweight Championship
Florida/N.A./World Light Heavyweight Championship (Wrestlers 215 lbs or lower).
Florida/N.A./World Tag-Team Championship
Florida/N.A./World Television Championship (15 minute Rule, defended weekly. If the champion succesfully defends the
title 10 times in a row, he gets a Heavyweight, Light Heavyweight, or Tag-team title shot.)
Florida/N.A./World Women's Championship

In my company there will be more of an emphasis on weight limits. Matches outside your natural weight class will be considered exhibition matches (obviously unless it's for the TV title). Also each title, except for the Television title is equal to the other. Just because you're the Heavyweight champion doesn't mean you're the top dog. Who's in the main event is up to the fans.

I wouldn't hire any wrestlers I'd have teams build human-size robots and have them destroy each other under a bullet-proof dome.


Robot wins when it rips out/destroys the "heart" of it's opponent.

Supreme ProWrestling Would be the name (or until i can think of a better name).... as The president of the Company (on Air heel Role) would go to William Regal... He be in charge of over seein all operations and putting togther matches and decieding who gets what title shot.

Championships would inculde
SPW World Heavy Weight Championship
SPW International World Championship
No Tag or Tv Title, i only got a 20 man Roster that be over kill.

Annouce Team would be.
Josh Matthews and Paul Heyman (JR is retired)

as for TV deal. I would Go For a Deal With HBO to do a weekly show... with HBO i can be alot more risky and use a little harsher launge.... Maybe Even Do a Once a month Clash of the Champions deal with HBO who knows..... HBO has ondemand service which would constantly promote DVDS and PPVs.... also HBO well distrbute the DVDS and advertise them... also they be at more retail stores if i strike a deal with HBO.... and being with HBO i be able to appeal to the audince that WWE neglects 14 to 30... cause i cant compete with a already established WWE.

Crown a new champion would be a huge 3 day tourniment.... The winner would be crowned the World Champion and the other man will be crowned International Champion.

Wrestlers in the Federation would be
CM Punk
Daniel Bryan
Chris Jericho
Davey Richards
Jack Swagger
Dolph Ziggler
John Morrison
Wade Barrett
Samoa Joe
Claudio Castignoli
Chris Hero
Mason Ryan
Batista (make him and Mason Ryan do something)
Brent Albright
Zack Ryder
Curt Hawkins
Richie Steamboat
Seth Rollins

There be no womens divison, it be a waste of time, so ill hire mostly for Valets and adding to the match
Khama (as a body guard, sort of like Chyna was, she might even compete with the men)
Nikki and brie bella
Vicki Guerreo
Lacey (probably be the center piece of a faction)
Madison Rayne
