    • Male Wrestler – male superstar regularly wrestling on weekly shows as part of the WWE roster
    • Female Wrestler – female superstar regularly wrestling on weekly shows as part of the WWE roster
    • Part-Timer – superstar with limited show appearances and having distinct periods not featured in WWE’s shows
    • Non-Wrestler – superstar usually not wrestling and portraying a manager or an authority role in WWE storylines.

    * Superstar’s role remains the same during the season.

    Roster requirements

    To join the game you must select your roster consisting of 8 superstars. Each roster should meet the following requirements:

    • Maximum 5 superstars from a brand
    • At least 2 superstars with role different than Male Wrestler

    * Your roster can have more than 5 superstars from one brand in case some superstar's brand changes. In this situation you will have to pick a superstar from a different brand when making draft changes.

    Budget

    The initial value of your roster must not exceed $60.

  • Main eventers and Midcard

    From your 8 superstars roster each gameweek you must assign 3 superstars for Main Eventers. The remaining 5 superstars are marked as Midcard. The score for your Main Eventers for the gameweek will be multiplied by 1.5.

    Automatic changes

    Besides top 3 superstars being Main Eventers, rest of your roster is ordered hierarchically. If one of your Main Eventers has 0 points earned for the gameweek assigned, the superstar under the #4 spot takes his/her place (and has his/her gameweek score multiplied by 1.5) and so on.

  • Draft Picks

    After your initial roster selection you can change your superstars from the Draft menu. You have unlimited draft picks before the start of the first gameweek, after you joined the game.

    After that you receive 1 free draft pick each gameweek.
    Each additional draft pick you make in the same gameweek will cost you points from your roster score for the next gameweek as follows:

    • 5 points deducted per additional draft pick in case there is no PPV in the next gameweek
    • 10 points deducted per additional draft pick if there is a PPV scheduled for the next gameweek

    If you don’t use your free draft pick, you can have it saved for the following gameweeks. You can’t have more than 1 saved draft pick or 2 free draft picks total for a single gameweek.

    While drafting superstars, you can pick superstars with price not exceeding the price of the superstars being sold. All remaining budget after the changes will be saved for following draft picks.

    Wildcard

    For information on wildcard please check the Boosters section listed below in the rules.

    Price Changes

    During the season superstar prices can increase or decrease, based on their popularity in the draft transfers market. Superstar’s price can change by $0.1 on daily basis and by maximum $0.3 for one gameweek.

    When selling a superstar, with current price above the price you have purchased him/her for, the selling price will be lesser than his/her current price. That superstar selling price will be his/her current price, reduced by 50% of the money difference between his/her current price and the purchase price (rounded up to the nearest £0.1m).

    E.g.: If you buy a superstar for $7.0 and when you sell him his price is $7.7, his selling price will be $7.3.

  • Boosters

The Wildcard can be played when making draft changes that cost points and can't be cancelled once played.

    • Raw
    • SmackDown
    • 205 Live

    Show Segments

    Each show or PPV is divided in separate segments providing points for any of the participating superstars. Each segment is specified as either a match or an angle.

    Match is considered any wrestling match during the show with distinct participants and outcome.

    Angle is considered any coherent and logically distinct part of the show. For example angle can be some superstar giving an interview or some superstars brawling. Sometimes events perceiving a match or the aftermath of a match can be defined as separate angle.

    Only unique events, part of the show's storylines are specified as segments.
    Replays from preceding events or other shows doesn't count.
    Video footage for debuting superstars or upcoming matches are also not specified as separate segments.
    Unsignificant events with little to none action or dialogue(like someone just walking backstage) are usually also not considered segments.

    * The classification of segments in a given show is sometimes a question of subjective judgment and Fantasy Wrestling Rumble's team decision is final.
