  1. Only three things I really care about and there all in Universe . First off having Road Dogg and Billy Gunn in New Age Outlaws and DX at the same time,  just one of many examples. Next fix the rankings system to where I can have one wrestler vie for two major titles and it actually works right. Lastly instead of a major and a singles per show allow me to have two major titles if I so please and don't make me have a female title on every show. Oh and implement the damn managers the way they should be! Thank you.
