Awesome game. Just a few of suggestions

This is a very fun and addicting game. I enjoy the format and interface. The parody in this game is very entertaining. I’m only 2 game-years into my promotion, but I already have a few suggestions on experience improvements...

I would like to see all wrestlers represented in the World Title rankings. Cruiser-weights are not listed in world title rankings, even if one beats a non-cruiser in the top 5. They only show up in TV, Cruiser, and Tag rankings. Right now, Moon Trooper and Caesar Sleaze, who are openers, tend to show up in my top 5 consistently due to most of my roster being cruiser-weights. Sometimes they makes it to number one without wrestling matches. Their records are dismal while others have great records and consistently defeat the likes of Trooper and Sleaze.

I would like to see ties/draws in W/L rankings.

I think it would be interesting to see feuds play out as well. For example, if wrestler A attacks and injures wrestler B backstage, then wrestler B automatically gets a revenge match sometime after returning from injury. Much like how a title match is already booked by the game if someone wins a contenders match at a prior show.

This may be too much, but I think it would great if the game could track heel/face turns and reflect as much on the cards. Dr. B has needed to turn babyface for a while now!

Anyway, I love the game!

Love this game + some suggestions

This game is awesome. Very simple and enjoyable. I love the numerous references to 80s and 90s culture. Also loving the additions of the triple threat matches and tag team feuds. I’ve been playing this game since the original version and it’s still so fun to me. I just have a few suggestions though. 1. Could the timer for the shop be lowered from 12 to 8 or 6? I’d like to see more card options in one day without using a coin. 2. Can the ladies be used more often then once or twice a month? I’d like to use them in matches weekly. 3. Raise the selling price for merchandise? I think it’s just a bit too low.

Best there is

Excellent game; highly recommend for any wrestling fan.
Great gimmicks, great gameplay and really holds your interest.
It is the ONLY game I have ever considered buying game money on.
My only suggestion/comment is - if I purchase a random main eventer or legendary, it only they are guaranteed to be active in the current year. However, they could be active for only another month or year. If I had a guarantee purchased cards would be active for several years then I would spend real money on the game. Also daily cards are often already inactive so it doesn’t pay to buy them.
