The weak/strong grapple system from the past games has been removed. Characters now perform different moves based on their opponent’s current physical state. Players now have a window of opportunity to attack while still in a downed state and can also interrupt moves and Royal Rumble eliminations with attacks. Similarly, the pinning meter from the past games has been reworked to make it more difficult to kick out as a wrestler takes more damage. The game’s artificial intelligence has also been adjusted to prevent players from overusing the same move. In addition, the ability to store finishing moves has returned. A new feature called “Dynamic Comebacks” will give players on the verge of losing the opportunity to successfully hit a combination of moves to gain two finishing moves.
