    Authority figures are so done. Have a faceless governing body who make the decisions and managers of factions who do the talking. I feel making the concept of a Pro Wrestling Promotion different to what 'the norm' is, is paramount to creating a successful market so anything they can throw at it that is so far away from WWE can only be a good thing. You aren't going to get very far just doing the same thing. Tony Khan as heel GM etc. WWE is just far too oiled and stable now that having another show that is similar will just die on it's arse. But maybe people just want the same but just not under the WWE umbrella?

    Win loss records are a great idea but it's how you implement it which would be tricky. If they aren't going to be a touring circus act doing 300 live events a year like WWE it might work. If your only seeing your world champions wrestle 12 times a year those results will matter.

    Yeah. Say you do 5 or 6 big PPVs a year in Vegas with a presser and weigh ins it would give a big time feel. Get on the blower to Michael Buffer and get him in. Class.

    Agreed I would also base fueds on faction conflict. Say you have the bullet club. That faction will have a manager/spokesperson who deals with the governing body to put matches together kinda like a Bob Arum or Eddie Hearn. Win and loss records would be a decent idea to explore too although I'm not sure how you could implement that with how pro wrestling is presented. Maybe allow talent to work elsewhere and kayfabe call them the amateurs or summat.

    If the lucha is that good it doesn't matter surely. Like Manny Pacquiao beating Antonio Margarito at Light Middleweight when he was half the size. If your good enough or over enough in wrestling terms you go up.

    Interesting. Just because it's a work doesn't mean you can't create some sort of pseudo legitimacy. Hell, the fact that it is a work would mean although there were limitations with having the weight classes you could create a lucha goes through the weight classes and gets his chance against the big monsters story. Your basically saying because it's fake just cabaret act it by which I mean make it hokey cos that's all people know. Although NJPW has some sort of pseudo sport legitimacy and that seems to work doesn't it.

    To be different. To not do what has gone before. To also not be lazy and stick with a concept and have the discipline to see it through which would hopefully over time educate the fan base into realising that they were watching a different style of pro wrestling. I'd go as far as having time limits for matches and have a judges scorecard should the match to the distance. Think of the storylines that would create. Surely having big fuckers like Ryback, Batista and Goldberg as your heavyweight torch bearers and then underneath a middleweight division with Your omegas etc and then under that a lightweight or welterweight division helps create a real difference when watching a card. Then say if your middleweight champion has cleaned out the division he then goes up and then has a whole new group of fresh matches but against clearly bigger and tougher opponents. We've been accustomed and normalised seeing David up against goliath that going in the opposite direction would be an interesting change imo of couse. Ultimately AEW aren't going in that direction and it will be interesting how long they last when they realise going up against the wwe and a product that caters to everyone won't work.

    Which is why they should have been all about been completely different from the very start. *Weight classes *Weigh ins *use of studio analysis presentation *fueds based on factions/promotional groups.

    Yup. Agree 100% With regards to weight classes it's about having a discipline to see it through. The one big issue if you went pseudo sport would be a lack of gimmick matches and how fans would take to just not having any.

    Like you say, With weigh ins you can smoke and mirrors it and for the weekly shows you can just put the weight in the wrestlers graphic. It's about making it different to the competition. Look at the first cruiserweight tournament. There was a different feel and that's why it was a success. It wasn't that they were all doing flips and flops. Same thing with the press conferences. One a month before the big MGM event would be special.
