What the Patch Includes

Patch 1.01 is primarily intended as a patch to fix the “uninterruptable moves” glitch. The moves can now be interrupted. The patch also addresses the issue in which reversed Finishers were still counted for scoring during Finisher Matches. The patch fixes issues where interrupting certain moves could cause the interrupted Superstar to appear to float. In addition to fixing the warping issue that occurred when performing ladder driving moves on wedged or leaning ladder, the patch also addresses floating issue that occurred when reversing an OMG! move on the announce table. The patch also includes new damage indicator that provides players more information on the damages caused to the wrestlers and the opponents. Also, players will now get to take on a Player vs Undertaker storyline.
