Drebin Posted June 27, 2016 Share Posted June 27, 2016 I appreciate its hard to build a card without any criteria as such (ie company, stories etc), but on a basic premise, id like to ask the following questions: Opening If I go with a match to start the show, what sort of time should I be aiming for? I always end up with say a 2hr show, that has like 7 matches, but is still way short of time required... so should I go with something long lasting to set things up? After that, this is where things go stale for me... I struggle to fill cards with things that make sense. Of course there are a couple of stories and I try to end each show with one or 2 major storylines advancing... but the middle of my card I fill up almost for the sake of it... ie a tag matchup, sometimes a mid ranked title match.. .but again, timings, I think these are not important matches so maybe 8-10 mins, but should I be going longer for them? Also is it fine to do back to back matches? If I have a show that expects say 50/50 angles/matches... should I go match, angle, match, angle etc Add in to that, if I want an angle for a match that night, how many segments ahead should it be? If its a main event angle, do I want that in the early part of the show? Is it wise to have angle then match of the same wrestlers? I just need some basic booking tips to make the most of my shows, I sort of have the odd good angle, maybe get lucky with a matchup in the middle, but in the main rely on the main event to flourish to make things OK for the night.
