This guide has the purpose to help people who loves creating wrestlers (like myself), I will explain how to raise the attributes and get the special
abilities for you CAS.

First of all, of course, you must create your superstar in the Create Mode, then C-A-S, you can try and create it all by yourself, or you can also
watch this page: http://caws.ws/svr2009/ in this page, you'll find the best created superstars and the steps to build them, there are also
Entrance, Moveset, and Finisher creation help. Right now there aren't a lot of good CAS except for Koslov, Goldust and Hogan (and those
wonderful Marvel creations by DeZmonD).

Now that you've created your superstar, in order to get special abilities and attributes you MUST play career mode (In Game Modes menu).
NOTE: There'll be a patch (IGN said January) to fix this, so that you can raise quickly your CAS attributes, you can wait or raise them by yourself.

Once in Career Mode you have championship paths options you can take, it's better to have WWE and WHC paths unlocked (but it takes some
time), cause when you play in U.S., IC, ECW, etc paths the difficulty is very low, the matches will be squash matches.

How to raise Attributes in your matches:
1.- Strength: Do strikes, a lot of them, strong grapples, and a lot of finishers and signature moves
2.- Durability: Win the match, bleed (get busted open), kick-out of finishers, and specially take damage. It's easier to make this in WWE/WHC
paths cause the difficulty is higher, and they'll counter more and inflict more damage.
3. Speed: It's better to raise this one in 'squash matches', do a running grapple/strike to your opponent, then run around the ring a lot, when he
gets up, attack him again with a running strike/grapple and keep running. Also execute a lot of top rope attacks and quick grapples.
4. Stamina: You can extend your submission holds, kick-out a lot or turn on your stamina system option in the game options.
5. Technical: Do a lot of reversals, this one is very slow to make in 'squash matches', so raise this one on WHC/WWE matches.
6. Submission: Well this one is preety obvious, just make a lot of submission holds, and if you have a submission signature/finisher, use it to win.
Also use a lot of ground grapples and attack all opponent's limbs.
7. Charisma: Taunt a lot, use air moves, use fan favorite ability. I would recommend to give your caw the 'Stone Cold middle finger' taunt, it's very
quick and you can use it a lot of times (it takes 1-2 seconds).
8. Hardcore: My favorite :D Easy: make No DQ matches, fight out of the ring and use a LOT of weapons, strike and grapples.

Now that you know how to raise your attributes, I'll tell you how to get special abilities, some are very annoying and hard to get, and others really
simple to get. Here's the list and tips:
NOTE: Once the 6 abilities have been selected you can't change them!

Submission Specialist: Superstars with this ability are able to submit opponent using non-finisher/signature submission moves
How to get:.Attempt 7 Struggle Submissions in one match and then win
Tips: Self-explanatory

K.O: Performa a finisher on a critically injured opponent to knock them out (KO On in the match options)
How to get: Earn 5 star ratings in every Match (no title match) on a single title path.
Tips: This one is very easy, take your time to make 5 star matches, use a lot of holds, weapons, it's easy at the beginning of the career cause your superstar is low and will take much more time to finish the time, so you'll get more easily 5 stars

Lock Pick: When victim of a submission hold, press Y to power out of it (costs small amount of momentum)
How to get: Face Y2J in a singles match and escape the Walls of Jericho
Tips: I'm not sure in which path you face Y2J, help would be very appreciated :D , just don't tap out, let him built his momentum early in the match let him take you down so that he can aply The Walls(or you can modify his moves in CAM so that he has standing WoJericho too)

Resiliency: Superstars with this ability are very tough to defeat by pinfall as they are able to absorb and endure an inordinate amount of pain.
How to get: Kick out of a pin at 2 while having 2 parts of red body damage.
Tips: Press all of your buttons while you're at the pin, also using kip-up on the two count is easier.
Here is a great mini-guide to get the resilency attribute by mighty1, thanks for the help http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=109645

Durability: When prompted, hold Y to regenerate small amount of limb damage.
How to get: Beat a superstar rated 20 points higher overall while both having orange damage
Tips: All of the superstars are 20 points higher than you at the beginning, let him hurt you, and use a submission hold to make him tap out while in orange.

Evasive Dodge: Hold LT or RT and the left stick in any direction to ecade adversaries with this quick maneuver.
How to get:: Win a Special Match against 2 opponents ( between Rey and/or Jeff Hardy And/or Jimmy Wang Yang)
Tips: Defeat those superstars Jimmy's cruiserweight, Jeff is on World Tag path and Rey is on the WWE Tag path just defeat them in a special match (recommend Extreme rules or Tables)

Hammer Throw: Hold B to perform a more powerful Irish whip
How to get: Earn an ability within your first 10 career matches, then get the Sit in the Corner award.
Tips: The Sit in the Corner award is: Irish Whip Your Opponent into the Corner 10 Times in One Match

Kip-up: When prompted, press Y to perform a last minute comeback while in the throes of defeat, it can only be used on the ground, once per
match.
How to get: Win 6 championships
Tips: Self-explanatory, just be careful avoiding the other abilities

Outside Dives: Able to eprform running dives to the outside of the ring, run or stand toward and enemy outside of the ring and press X moving the
left stick towards the opponent
How to get: Complete 25 Dives in career.
Tips: Use top turnbuckle dives(it's quicker in cage matches, you climb faster), and outside the ring dives.

Possum Pin: Press RT to reverse a pin attempt and esnare you opponent with a possum pin (use it while on the ground)
How to get: Beat 3 people who have the possum pin.
Tips: Santino Marella, Rey Mysterio, Wang Yang, Shelton Benjamin, Kofi Kingston, Candice, Kendrick, London have this ability

Thanks to Gory Starscream for this GREAT tip: If you make your CAW a cruiserwieght he will automatically start on the Cruiserwieght path and not the Intercontinental, therefore you only have to defeat a few superstars to get the Springboard ability, also you will get the Possum Pin ability on the Cruiserweight path without fail because all the superstars on that path have that ability

Spring board dives: Move Left stick toward the ropes + X . You can also perform this attack off the turnbuckle, walk/run toward the trunbuckle and
press X
How to get: Win Cruiserweight Title.
Tips:This path is unlocked after you've won two or three championships or look above

Ladder Match Specialist: Your superstar is able to remove the suspended belt/briefcase faster than others.
How to get:: Get a 5 star rated ladder match against one of the Hardys
Tips:Use grapples, strikes and weapons against one of the Hardys to have the 5 stars

Object Specialist: You can perform weapon graples and other actions (like conchairto), using the right stick.
How to get:: Complete 50 object attacks in career
Tips: Put DQ off, or extreme rules match, destroy your opponent

Fan Favourite: Press D-pad in any direction when momenutm bar is full, your opponent'll suffer loss of momentum as a result.
How to get: Successfully taunt 10 times in a match (must not have steal taunt)

Dirty Pin: Perform a pin near the ropes to use them in your favor
How to get: 5 star rating against 3 different people who have the ability
Tips: John Morrison, Beth Phoenix, Shelton Benjamin, Marella, Chavo Guerrero have this ability

Table Match Specialist: Superstars with this can double stack tables (approach a set table and press A while holding another table)
How to get: Break 40 tables in career (announce tables count)
Tips: You unlock Tables matches after you fight for the #1 contendership for Harcore title but it's quicker to use announcer tables (irish whip opponent towards tables and use a strong grapple/finisher/signature while on top of it)

Referee Shield: Press and hold A when near the referee to hold him as a shield, to throw him, release A
How to get: Get 5 DQ losses, then win a championship match against a clean superstar
Tips: Be sure you're the #1 Contender, Grab a chair hit your opponent 5 weeks straight (DQ ON), defeat the champion (must be clean)

Move Theft: Hold RB+Y to steal opponent/s finisher or signature
How to get: Beat 20 different superstars

Steal Taunt: Hold RB+D-pad to steal opponent's taunt, if performed without interrumption, opponent'll lose momentum
How to get: Foil opponents attempt to steal your taunt (can't have fan fave ability)
Tips: Difficult, raise the bar of the IA's Steal taunt in the game options(gameplay settings), Best done in higher difficulties (WWE, WHeavy paths)

Bloodshed/Hardcore resurrection: Superstar regenarates small amount of damage after self-inflcited bleeding (press Y holding a chair). If
bloodied by your opponent you win full momentum (only use once per match)
How to get: Make opponents bleed 10 times and bleed yourself 10 times (rewarded on win with blood)
Tips: It's easy to make 10 opponents bleed, but it's very difficult for them to bleed you lol, so this can only be done on WWE/WHC path.

Steel Cage Match Specialist: Escape the cage quicker than others
How to get: Win cage match in under a minute by escaping
Tips: This must be done in one of your early matches, use a lot of strong grapples to one specific limb of your opponent, it's tough, but after some
grapples try to escape, and hope you opponent doesn't get up
I recommend giving your CAS a running DDT attack (hurts a lot) and then use legdrops, use a head-focused finisher. so that he stays down :p

These are the matches you unlock by playing through each championship path
Intercontinental Path: Steel Cage match United States Path:
ECW Path: ECW Extreme Rules match Hardcore Path: Tables match**
Cruiserweight Path: Ladder match WWE Tag:
World Tag Path: Hell in a Cell Tag match WWE Championship path: TLC
World Heavyweight path: Hell in a Cell match

**I recommend you play in tables matches if you're too annoyed and bored, cause it's the quickest way to win, just fill momentum and hit your table finisher

Hope this help you to create a great CAS, Good luck :woop:

I personally think this should be made into a sticky. I searched for a bit for a detailed guide on creating, and then giving him the right abilities and strengths/weaknesses. Thanks.

yeah, THQ are true asses, but wait until the end of March, there has been said DLC wil be released someday on 25-30, and if it really comes out, then the patch should also come, if by April there's no match, then if you like trade the game

Thanks for this guide mate, I was getting confused on the 6 abilities achievement because I didnt know how you unlocked "these" abilities. But all I have to do its what's required and I have that ability unlocked.

One question though, say if I want the Dirty Pin ability will I face enough opponants with this ability before the end of career mode?

Cool, thanks for the reply, my friend is having a problem, probably the wrong thread but when you get the invite for the hall of fame and then you save and exit and start a new career will it remember how many have been invited or will it overwrite it?

Sorry for the late reply, yes after the game says you've become a hall of famer, save, and now you can start a new career, if you go to the Roster in Game options, your CAW should be there with a Hall of Fame logo next to it

This guide is a great, it helped me make me CAS Christian using his proper moveset. Thanks for all the information. The thing that sucks though I unlocked 6 abilities by playing the first tier of matches which sucked. They weren't the ones I was going for but it still works out fine for him.
