Ever wondered when you should pull the trigger on a MITB cash-in? Or when to push a fledgling youngster? This is the place for you. Post all queries on general booking here to get a wide variety of answers. Every so often a member will write about something on booking that is so helpful and impressive that it will get archived here.

What is the best way to go, to get the most out of a match.

Battle Royal; written in full.

or

A Tournament; written in "Closing Moments."

Im my point of view it completely depends on your own writing style. If you are good at keeping a reader's attention go with the battle royal. If that isn't one of your strong suits run with the tourney. Either way, you should end up with multiple storylines coming out of this.

What Bret said is true, all too often tournaments or royals are wasted because the spotlight is put purely on the winner. I'd only run a tournament or royal if I was stuck for storylines or feuds as it is an easy thing to take from them. A big name knocked out in the first round/early in the match -- redemption. The runner up -- revenge. Easy things to book.

If the prize is huge like a World Championship match, I'd lean towards a tournament. It takes skill to win three matches in a tournament but it can easily be viewed as luck to win a one-off match where you don't have to do a lot of the work.

Continuing with what Adam said, no matter what match it is, if there are multiple people in it, whether it's a battle royal, four way, Rumble, MITB, Chamber, or whatever else, don't make the winner look like the winner from start to finish. Make everybody look equally good and bad at points throughout the match and make it come down to an unpredictable finish. Even if your match result is predictable, make the finish look unpredictable.

Some recent ECCW examples of this:

- The Royal Crumble: It came down to five able superstars. Even further, the top three all looked like they had something that could lead to a victory. Daniel Evans had a heel push going for him on Terror, Harry Jones had lasted since the first entry and had plenty of momentum, and John Leopold had just made his big return. Any of the above could have stole the win.

- The Elimination Chambers: Nobody could be sure Angel or Dustin Shore would retain their titles going into the PPV. And with the final two in the respective matches being Angel vs. Casey Anomaly and Dustin Shore vs. Jarrett Calloway, there were lots of times where it looked like the challenger was going to get it.

I, personally, would do Tournaments. Because Battle Royals, I do like order of elimination. For Tournaments, I do closing moments. And the Tournaments, whether in one night or one month, will get more rivalries sturring and attract my audiences better. But that's just my opinion.

I just noticed this but there seems to be alot of WWE bookers around run by guys like RED, Nova Jigsaw and others. Why not make it into a league of sorts and see who can write better shows and other shit.

Just a random thought I had.

Well that's what they're doing as it is surely? The right to be recognized as the best booker of current day WWE? Reviews will prove as a gauge to everyone who is the best but we also have the BTB of the Month coming into play this month. I'm sure they'll shoot for it!!!

What's preferred? YouTube Titantrons or lyrics to the themes?

Personally I prefer reading a show with Lyrics, it's easier on the eyes and I HATE sifting through a load of youtube videos. One at the start for the intro is cool and maybe for the main event or PPV's.

Lyrics or Names of entrance themes are better. Youtube videos make everything more disjointed.

Youtube videos everywhere are the worst. Don't do it, I know it turns me off from reading shows.

If I use a youtube video, I'll use it to hype a return of a wrestler, or hype up an upcoming PPV. but when I do use them, there is only at the max 2 if necessary in my shows.

Used like that it isn't an issue, but when it's used for every singles entrance it drives me, and I know a lot of other people as well, insane! I'm glad you don't do it Razz
