The smaller current roster on the game can only help universe mode.
I found that on WWE 12, if you follow these three steps a superstar will NEVER show up.
1) Make them a free agent
2) Remove all allies/rivals from that superstar
3) Remove the superstar from any tag teams/stables
If you do all those things, that superstar will never show up in your Universe Mode. It worked for me and played a few years of Universe Mode. Some people think they just needed to put Road Warrior Animal (for example) as a free agent to remove him, but you have to break up his tag team too and alliance with Hawk to make sure he would never show up.
