Created wrestlers in AEW: Fight Forever will debut with weak stats

I hope you're ready to grind through Road To Elite

Yesterday, Chris Danger shared an in-game screenshot from his time previewing AEW: Fight Forever. The post suggests that players won’t be able to set their own attributes for created wrestlers.

The screenshot Danger shared displays a pop-up that appears within the game’s Create a Wrestler menu. Alongside the ability to create brand new custom wrestlers, the pop-up also explains you can modify the entrances and attire of AEW wrestlers that are already in the game. However, the text also provides a warning that seems to state that players won’t be able to modify attributes for their custom wrestlers without completing the game’s story mode.

One piece of advice: newly created wrestlers won’t be strong enough to compete with established talent. You’ll want to train them first in Rode To Elite.

Most wrestling games offer players the ability to fully customize characters to their liking, all the way down to their statistics. Although there are some players who choose to set all their created wrestlers to the highest overall, others prefer to create real-life wrestlers with realistic attributes to deepen the game’s roster. However, in AEW: Fight Forever, it looks like you’ll need to grind out the story mode for all your created wrestlers.

AEW: Fight Forever powerslams into your home on June 29

On May 22, 2023, All Elite Wrestling revealed its debut game AEW: Fight Forever will hit the mat on June 29.

After years of anticipation and uncertainty, the team behind the game now feel confident for it to hit the shelves. In the new trailer, AEW EVP and former World Champion Kenny Omega discusses how developer Yuke’s is finally ready to release the game. You can watch the official announcement below.

The trailer also shows off additional gameplay featuring Omega as he takes on the likes of Jon Moxley, “Hangman” Adam Page and Adam Cole. The footage also highlights the title’s arcade alternative approach to WWE’s simulation style gameplay. With over-the-top character models and animations, AEW: Fight Forever looks to take wrestling games to their arcade-style roots.

We wanted to develop an arcade experience that was fun, easy to pick up and play, but difficult to master.

AEW: Fight Forever is developed by Yuke’s and published by THQ Nordic. The game will release worldwide on June 29 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.

You can also pre-order the game on the official website. Pre-ordering the game will unlock Matt Hardy as a playable wrestler. In addition, you’ll also receive his “Broken” variant as well.

What do you think about the way AEW: Fight Forever is handling created wrestlers? Do you like the incentives to replay the story mode? Or would a long grind be too tedious for every custom superstar you make? As always, let us know what you think in the comments!
