I was browsing through the SVR09 information and came across this:
“In Road to Wrestlemania players can choose from five superstars to play as in single-player storylines: Triple H, CM Punk, The Undertaker, John Cena, or Chris Jericho. The storylines featured in the mode are tailor made to fit the chosen wrestler’s character. A co-operative storyline will also be included in the mode, in which the players will take the parts of Batista and Rey Mysterio respectively.”
Cory Ledesma made mention of another unnamed mode which will “be able to support a bunch more options for the players that like to have the free rein, the multiple decisions to use created elements in that mode”. In a later interview, Ledesma furthered on the mode mentioning it as a replacement of the General Manager (GM) mode seen in the previous three games. The new mode will offer some of the same features found in the GM mode.
Returning to the series is the backstage brawl, where players can battle in either the locker room or the backstage “gorilla position” with a variety of weapons at their disposal. The match will replace the parking lot brawl match featured in the last game.
