5 Clever Ways To Become The Next Superstar Employee

Wrestlers talk about, “knowing their place on the card.” This means that since they’re not the “headliner” or in the main event, they understand that they are a supporting act for the overall benefit of the show.

They still have a job to do and must perform well. They must get the audience riled up and engaged in the action. They’ve learned from the veterans. Watched hours of match videos. And tried to be a good “student.” Now they’re ready for their time in the spotlight.

Don’t Try to Compete with the Superstar Employee

They won’t worry about what the “main eventers” will do in their match because, in their mind, they intend to “steal the show.” They want their match the one that’s talked about when the show is finished.
