    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)

    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...

    HBK-AMANIA, IS RUNNIN WILD !

    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.

    rules:
    NO EMPS
    NO EXPLODING WEAPONS
    NO CORRODING WEAPONS

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