Staff are the people responsible for the backstage operations of a promotion. Without
them, the product would be nothing. There are eight types of staff in EWR:
Owners: These are the people who finance the promotions. A promotion that does
not have a specific owner is run by a board of directors. Owners cannot be hired or
fired by you, and so do not show up in any of the in-game rosters. They can however
by hired of fired by promotions. They have specific styles, so certain owners may
prefer to hire only brawlers, whereas another may be high on technical wrestlers.
Wrestlers can retire to become owners.
Announcers: These are the people who call the matches. Announcerís quality affects
TV ratings and pay-per-view buy rates.
Road Agents: These are the guys who keep control in the back. If you have too few
(or too few talented) road agents, anarchy is likely to reign, and you will have more
fights and incidents on your hands.
Referees: These are the guys who officiate the matches. Poor referees will spoil
matches and drag quality down.
Medics: Medics look after your injured workers. Too few (or too few talented) medics
means that injuries will take longer to heal.
Trainers: These are the guys who run your training camps. A good trainer will be
able to teach students to be good wrestlers, poor trainers may harm their
Writers: These are the people who write the angles. Without them, you cannot use
angles at all. The quality of the writing team effects the reaction angles get.
Production: These are the people who deal with setting up the arena, doing the
pyrotechnics for entrances, keep the big screen working, make promotional material,
edit the broadcast, work the cameras, deal with security...etc! Your rating will suffer
if you donít have good production staff.
By talking to your staff, you will find out whether you need to hire more people for
certain roles (for example, as you hire more wrestlers you may need more road
agents to handle them).
Staff hiring and firing is the same as it is with wrestlers.
