[b]Stat Raising(A01)[/b][u][/u]
During your career mode you will upgrade your stats this is a list of ways to raise certain stats

*It should be noted that any superstar to my knowlage can reach 99 in every stat and career mode is endless*

I have spent some time now testing all the ways to raise states this is what i cam up with

*Dont expect your stats to just sky rocket honestly it takes time to get your stats up after you hit 70 overall*

[b]Durability (A02)[/b] - Winning the Match, receiving Damage, Being Busted open , Finisher Kick outs, Strong Grapples.

(to up it easily turn count out off run up the ramp and let your opponent beat on you until your red then go into the ring and have your match. Kickouts when close to red or red seem to boost it more then not)

[b]Strength (A03)[/b] - Strikes add the most followed by the ultimate punches and then strong grapples/UCM

(to up it easily make your 3 punch combo something you can spam then just beat them to death with it)

[b]Speed (A04)[/b] - Running Moves, Climbing the turnbuckle, Dives, Quick Grapples, Running around in circles

(to up it easy make a habbit of running at your opponent whenever you try to pick him up or go for any kind of move)

[b]Submission (A05)[/b] - Submissions, working limbs, Ground Grapples, Getting out of submissions

(easiest way iv found to raise this other then getting a submission finisher is finding someone who has a lot of submissions but no submission ability and battle them and just let them beat on you (preferably in a ladder match so you wont lose))

[b]Technical (A06)[/b] - Reversals, and Technical/Ground Moves, UCM, Fast grapples, chaining moves together, Finisher counters seem to help alot

(for this just string a ton of grapples together (things like kick to gut that dont knock them down work well)

[b]Stamina (A07)[/b] - Kick outs, Bleeding, winning with little damage, Running, UCM, SS Submissions

(easiest way to do this is simply run around alot and let your Wrestler run out of energy doing UCM or SS submissions)

[b]Charisma (A08)[/b] - taunting, aeiral moves, Fan Favourite Taunt

(best thing i have found is just taunt the enemy after you knock him down)

[b]Hardcore (A09)[/b] - Weapon Strikes, Weapon Grapples and Out of ring moves

(pretty easy take a weapon and beat the crap out of someone lol)

[b]Abilities (B00)[/b][u][/u]

[b]Roster Edit (D01)[/b][u][/u]
In order to do this you start a new career and when giving the option of current or customize roster choose to costomize. You can then move superstars over into the extra tab of superstars that wont comete.
Its a very easy way to avoid certain abilities is to edit the roster so that there are less superstars on the roster.
For example say you want KO and Kip up but not Move theft you would bring the roster down to 17 superstars 6 raw 6 smackdown 5 ecw

Another useful thing to note is that you can create superstars and put them in so if you say dont want abilities that require superstars you could fill the roster with squishy CaWs. (Works for divas as well)

[b]Special Matches (E01)[/b][u][/u]

[u]Royal Rumble (E02): [/u]At the royal rumble PPV you can compete in the royal rumble you will get a random number and will start the match just before you come out. (if you get say 28 then the first 27 will have come and gone and you wont watch any of it).

Reward: You get 5 stars toward any title you are going for (you also get a stat in your stats menu telling you how many ppl you eliminated how long you were in and how many times you have won

[u]Wrestlemania (E03)[/u] : At wrestlemania you get the option to compete in a money in the bank ladder match which your opponents are chosen at random

Reward: You get to challange for the championship you are after at any time you wish (also adds a stat in the stats menu saying how many money in the banks you have won)

In order to get a 5 Star match without making it a back and forth battle or a long fight.

The simplist method i have found is use all your sig/finisher 4 times
you will get 5 stars Match.

The Reason for adding this is When i play the game and try to win i just crush the opponent and get a 3-4 star match (I need to hold back alot or else its a squash match)

I put in a request for this to be pinned but I also suggested maybe combining John Thomas' Awards guide with it too since he posted that first and had an extensive list yet his topic wasn't pinned.

Maybe a colour code for different sections of the Award guide too like red for tag team awards, blue for taunts etc?

Thank you for the good feedback i really hope this gets a sticky because i have put alot of time into it

(i like the color suggestion the only problem is that 1. im color blind (slight issue) and 2. many people have trouble reading text in diffrent colors and some get massive headaches)

I did have a question though, you mention editing the diva roster. How do you do this? The divas don't even appear on my roster screen. (ps3)

I have the durabillity. Im trying to get Realsilance. You said that it's good to heel. Do I heel after the kickout or do i stay on orange and let him pin me? and button mash. Thanks

will it work if the ref gets knocked down and i still kick out? thanks also reply to the top post. thanks

When i said its easier to heal i mean like say your head gets red but none of your other body parts then constantly heal your head until your other body part is hurt then heal 1 body part to orange and another to just before it turns orange again then let him hit a head move (that way you have the least amount of damage to the head and to the second body part when he tries to pin
