This small guide will be covering the best options for your created wrestler, such as wrestler attributes, move-set and everything that makes a difference for speedrunning:
Be sure to create a wrestler with the Super Heavyweight class, you can change this option anytime at the Roster Application Screen (the one that you change his name, hometown, etc). While in Super Heavyweight class, it allows you to maximize all offensive attributes up to 100, which makes very trivial for 1v1 matches.
The following abilities are the only ones that really matters for a speedrun, you may include others just for optional purposes:
Dirty Pin - The most important ability of them all, most matches you will be winning via Pinfall, the Dirty Pin ability comes to play since you can use it to avoid any kind of Rope Break in case your opponent lands on a bad spot.
Hammer Throw - At some matches you will be facing really strong opponents that take a lot of time to win via Pinfall, regardless the difficulty you are playing on. This is a pretty useful ability if you need your opponent out of the ring to get a Count Out win or anything related to out-ring stuff.
Ring Escape - Comes in handy for triple threat matches or any harsh situation where you get taken down and need to get up fast. However, note that this ability consumes momentum bar, which is the most important factor for 90% of matches, so ONLY use it when you know what you are doing.
Most of your wrestler move-set can stay as default, the only relevant moves to be changed are the following:
Standard Actions - Ring In / Out
In - Slide Ring In 1
Out - Quick Ring Out
Standard Actions - Taunts
Be sure to have 2 fast taunts and 2 long taunts.
For me i use Longhorn, Goldust 3, Raise Arm 3 and Hold Up 2.
Standing - Strong Strikes
Use Haymaker for both.
I use Haymaker 2 and 3.
Standing - Strike Strikes
Change all directional attacks to Gut Kick 1
Ground - Strike Attacks
Wrestling Hero Stomp for both.
Running - Running Strikes
Jumping Knee 2
Running - Grapple
Neckbreaker 5 or Pushing (if you have unlocked) for both
Running - Grapple From Behind
Throwback for both
Signatures - Boxing Dash Punch (both).
Finishers - Wheel Kick and High Impact Uppercut.
That's it for the basics, later on i will be updating this post with a video showing how it's done on 1v1 matches.
