Never had this happen before. I've had a different move set glitch though. I had an RVD CAW I downloaded and I didn't like the move set so I just chose the default RVD move set. In a match, when RVD had his finisher, it said I could do my finisher to a standing opponent. It's odd because both of RVD's finishers were the 5 Star Frog Splash. I tried doing the standing finisher and it was the float over ddt. I edited the move set but same problem.
Off Topic: Does anyone else have problems connecting with the 5 Star Frog Splash? It always goes beside the opponent for me.
I was going to make a thread about everything I mentioned but I figured it'd fit here lol.
1) Check the "Alternate Finisher" (Table Finisher) that RVD has. It is most likely a Float Over DDT. You see, if the only standing finisher you have is in the Alternate Finisher spot, it will allow you to have a total of 3 different finishers..
2) Yes. The 5 Star Frog Splash does have problems connecting. You have to have the person set in just the right place to execute it correctly. If it were me, I'd just switch it for another Frog Splash. Less hassle.
Same thing happened to me, the set acted like it saved but it didn't. I think it even happened on an in-game wrestler like Chris Jericho.
If you want to attempt to find the issue, here is what I would suggest; Put all of your WWE13 files onto a flash drive, and start a new save on the hard drive. Create a default CAW and edit its moveset. Save, do a match, and see if it did indeed save. If it did, try this a few more times to make sure. If it fails to save on any of the tries, restart WWE13 and choose to play the save from your flash drive (don't move it to the hard drive to play it). Edit a moveset as you normally would, save, do a match, and repeat.
This should help in possibly finding if it is a hard drive problem or a save problem.
