That's weird. Where those number one contender matches that the computer made for you? I usually just edit most of my matches so maybe the freezing could be attributed to pre-set matches? Or maybe, and more than likely, it's just something to do with your game because I'm not really hearing many freezing complaints from others.
Yes, the number one contender matches were computer made. If the freezing continues then it's either my console or the game but hopefully it's not anything serious.
I haven't had any freezing issues with Universe mode (knock on wood). I've only had my game freeze up once when I was downloading some CAWs on CC. I didn't really experience much freezing offline on last years title either.
Exactly my game last year got so annoying with that happening. Only reason I kept orton there is he was feuding with miz and I want him to win something without him getting involved with Wwe title feud on smackdown
You can also make people ineligible to compete for midcard titles. I turned the IC/US titles off for Cena, Rock, Taker, Trips, Show, Orton, Punk, Sheamus etc. Boosts their ranking for the main title and makes it way more realistic.
Justin Gabriel just went over John Cena in a fifteen minute iron man match. Me playing as Gabriel just messing around most of the time. It ended up with me having four wins and Cena having two. Both of our faces a bloody mess, it was a fun match nonetheless. R-Truth and Dolph Ziggler also fought in the main event. Ended up with me as Ziggler hitting the Zig-Zag and getting the pin. The show ended up with Ziggler & Truth celebrating in the ring together. Either thinking Truth is going to turn heel soon or Ziggler is in line for a face turn.
