-During Swiss play these belts gain the text stating they do not take up a slot in your ring area or backlash deck
-During Title matches these belts are treated as backstage cards, but count as being in the ring area for other card's effects

The Best Thing Going Today


Deck overview: with the option to pack face and heel, fan favorite, cheater as well as being a legend, a stable and a tag team a lot of cards are open to you and while there are some obvious choices: Sloppy, Manager, Handicap, both Teamworks, Jimmy Hart, All These Years, In My Day and Cowboy; there are a lot of difficult decisions when it comes to paring it down to 60 cards
That's Value is much more versatile with the ability to pack any card on it, so the 10 cards are there to thin the deck out (along with the tech kicks to search themselves) so that you have a good reversal base and always have something to play. The 3 Minutes take advantage of Let's Get it On.
The Figure Four is mainly only played when it can't be reversed, a Dirty Low Blow might be added for this purpose.
With the card pool being so wide, there's no room for Carlito or Great to be Back; but a lot of these cases are handled by Old School Brawl and the Unique reversals. the capacity of the deck also led to going with 2 Once is Enough, and 3 GTFO, chosen this way because of GTFO's versatility.
The kidney punches are only in the arsenal to remove Wrestlemania, which works with the value modification in the backstage and prematch (Sig, Appearance, Endorsements)

The 2 cards in the deck that didn't see any use were Wrecking Crew, which was played every match but the effect never used, and Best Thing Going which wasn't played, but is still worth packing.
