D) Tips
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. If you are drafting, plan your rivalries right there and then....might 
help to know write to it down and determine who will be clean and 
who will be dirty.

2. This year's installment is all about planning.

3. If drafting try drafting just 12 superstars and 3 or 4 divas, this will 
leave some money for storyline writers.

4. Check your rivalries often to ensure they are still going.

5. SAVE WEEKLY!

6. Options: "MatchMaking: Re-Run" is your friend.

7. Turning off the "Title" and/or "Superstar Morale" option will make 
those title contenders less annoying.

8. Try to get a legend or two on your roster, their exclusive storylines 
are 5 stars.
