The ever expanding franchise Creation Suite now supports Stage Customization for Create-An-Arena and features the new Championship Editor. Of course, you will still be able to also develop and customize Superstars, Moves, Entrances, Storylines, Logos, Highlight Reels and more, as well as share and download creations with others from around the world.


In addition to creating rings, players will now be able to customize their own stage sets, even going so far as altering designs past and present.

There are now 20 stages to choose from instead of just the one, including RAW 2002-2005, RAW 2005-2008, SmackDown! Fist, SmackDown! Oval Tron, Survivor Series 1998, WrestleMania XV, Sunday Night Heat, Survivor Series 1997, Over The Edge 1998, Judgment Day 2004, SummerSlam 2004, Royal Rumble 1998, Cyber Sunday, two Custom Stages and more.

Your stage, ring apron/mat, and additional ringside areas all get 15 layers each, giving you 45 layers of creative freedom.  As for the Stage itself, you can apply logos (custom or pre-existing) to specific parts of the stage, change stage elements such as lighting fixtures, titantrons, and the scaffolds with preset options, and turn on or off titantrons and/or minitrons.  Each template has presets you’ll be able to work with and around.

You can also choose the size of the arena between Regular, Independent, Large, Tribute to the Troops (outdoor arena), and WrestleMania IX (outdoor arena). The crowd can be picked as well between a Current Era or an Attitude Era type, determining what type of shirts you want to see in the crowd, as well as signs. 

It's possible to change the color of the ramp and to add designs to it, but there's no option to remove it. The lighting for the arena can be changed as well, selecting between 10 different colors.

You will be able to utilize nameplates and match-card graphics of an in-game arena if you want, without being forced to use original ones.

These arenas can also be used Online and in Universe mode.


The Championship Editor allows you to change parts of the in-game belts similar to how you can change the color of an attire in Superstar Threads. In addition, there are also 3 custom designed belts that can be selected and customized. However, as opposed to Superstar Threads, saving Edited Championships will result in a completely seperate and different title, with the option to set:

- A custom Championship Name and "Short Name"
- An announcer name for the Championship, with up to 6 words to string together choosing from 88 different call names
- The gender of the Title between Superstars and Divas
- The type of the Title between Single, Tag Team and Cruiserweight Only


  • The color wheel for skin tones in CAW Mode finally makes its return in the series after being removed 2 years ago, as well as the Transparency option.
  • In addiiton, a "History" option will remember the previous 10 colors that we had chosen and allows us to select them instantly, so that setting things to a specific color time and time again won’t be necessary.
  • A "kickpads" section has been added to the Feet Area.
  • There's now the possibility to add Designs and Logos to both legs/arms at the same time in one step.
  • Also, PlayStation 3 users will finally be able to benefit of 64 layers for their created superstars, as opposed to up until now with it being a Xbox 360 exclusive due to technical limitations.


  • Over 300 new scenes will be available for the Story Designer Mode, which also allows for branching paths and decision-making by the player.
  • The Create A Finisher mode now changes name in Special Moves. The created moves can infact now can be assigned as Signature Moves as well, other than as Finishers. However, one character can have up to 2 Custom Moves in total, regardless of them being assigned as Signatures or Finishers.
  • The ability to customize Leverage Pin Moves and Limb Targeting Moves has been added to Create A Moveset.
  • Create An Entrance features new Championship Entrances: Steve Austin, Alberto Del Rio, Cody Rhodes, The Miz, Daniel Bryan and Kelly Kelly.
