ROADMAP


Step 1: Creation Trophies
You will want to create a custom superstar first before attempting the creations trophies. From the main menu, go to WWE Creations. After you created a CAW, head over to create a story. Create a match and a scene where one of the participants is your newly created CAW. This will get you Unique Original Story. Next, create a custom logo or simply download one from Community Creations. Proceed to create an arena and include the custom logo in it to receive Custom Logo Wizard and Arena Designer. Next, from WWE Creations, select Entrance. From the menu, select 'Custom Entrance Video' and create one for any superstar/CAW. Save and return to the main menu and play a match. You will want to ensure that 'Entrance' is set to on and change the arena to a custom arena that you had previously created. Proceed on with the match to watch the entrance. After it's completed, you will get Look! Look at my Titantron! and The WWE Arrives At A New Arena. Finally, create a custom front, top rope and corner finishing move for Creative with the Moves.

The trophies that you will get at the end of this step are:

  • Arena Designer
  • Look! Look at my Titantron!
  • Unique Original Story
  • Custom Logo Wizard
  • Creative with the Moves
  • The WWE Arrives At A New Arena


Step 2: Online Mode
The online trophies are fairly simple and straightforward. Start by heading over to community creations and download any 5 items, after which post a review for each item. You will get the Critic trophy after this. From Step 1, you would already have a handful of custom creations, so upload one for A Creator Is Born. It is suggested you use this creation to boost for You've Got Fans trophy as the latest patch, 1.02, rendered the 'second account' method useless. Finally, you would want to play an online match. You will get Start Online NXT regardless of the outcome of the match so long you play till the end.

Step 3: WWE Universe Mode
The bulk of the trophies will be earned while playing through this mode. Before playing any match, ensure that your difficulty setting is set to ‘Hard or Legend’ as we aim to get the 50 hard wins trophy along the way. Change the AI slider to make it easier for you if you need it. You will want to play a majority of the matches with your created superstar to climb up the No. 1 contender ranking.

Below are the list of trophies you want to pay attention to while playing through this mode:

  • Submission Specialist
  • Wildman of the Ring
  • Berserker
  • Challenger
  • Professional Material
  • Legend Status Accomplishments
  • Start as a Pro
  • Rolling Now!
  • I Ain't Losing to Anyone!
  • I'm Gonna be Champion
  • First Step of a Glorious Career
  • I Like Titles
  • Grand Slam Champion
  • The Birth of a Historic Tag Team
  • Mr. Money in the Bank
  • A Successful Cash In
  • WrestleMania's My Destiny!
  • My target at WrestleMania is...!
  • A Man Destined to Be a Champion
  • Superstar Contender
  • Declaration of War
  • Pandemonium
  • Holla!
  • Worked the Limb
  • Destroyer
  • The Art of Submission
  • Well Scouted
  • Merciless Attack

Note:

  • Booking yourself into a title match and winning it does not count for the trophy.
  • Trophies that said it has to be 'done in a session' can actually be spread across multiple days/sittings.
  • Always manually save by going to Options > Save Manager, whenever you want to quit the game.


Step 4: Road To WrestleMania
RTWM has 3 stories to be played (Villain/Outsider/Hero), after going through all of them, you will unlock the respective silver trophy. There are no specific trophies to take note of so just play through and enjoy the story. It is recommended you play the stories in the order it shows on the menu as the stories are somewhat linked.

Step 5: Exhibition Match Clean Up
Any trophies that you didn't obtain throughout the roadmap steps, play an exhibition match to obtain. The trophies you would most likely have left would be beating Undertaker on Legend, Master of the Brawl and/or win 37 times with Edge.

[PS3T Would Like to Thank aaronpooh for this Roadmap]



Platinum
Obtain all other Trophies. (26) 
Arena Designer
Create one arena in Create-An-Arena.  

From the main menu, head over to WWE Creations > Create an Arena. Just create any design and save it to obtain the trophy. It is recommended you do this after you created a custom logo so that you can place it in your arena to get the Custom Logo Wizard trophy at the same time.

Look! Look at my Titantron!
Use a movie created in Custom Entrance Video in an entrance scene (Single Player) (8) 

From the main menu, go to WWE Creations > Entrance. Select Custom Entrance Movie and create one for any superstar/CAW. Save it and then play a match with that superstar and turn the entrance on. Watch the entrance and you will get the trophy. It's important to note that the option to create a Custom Entrance Movie appears to be grayed out unless you have a CAW.

Unique Original Story
Create a story that includes a Custom Superstar or Custom Arena (3) 

From the main menu, go to WWE Creations > Story. You would need to create a scene and a match that either includes a custom superstar or a custom arena as the venue. You will get the trophy upon saving it.

Custom Logo Wizard
Apply a Custom Logo to a Custom Superstar, Video, or Arena  

From the main menu, go to WWE Creations > Logo. Create any logo design and then save it. Proceed on to either create a superstar/video/arena and affix this logo onto the respective ones that you chose to do. It is recommended you do this together with Arena Designer.

Creative With The Moves
Create a front, top rope and corner finishing move in Custom Finisher Move (2) 

From the main menu, head over to WWE Creations > Finisher. There are three choices of finisher to create. Create one of each of: a front, top rope and corner finishing move to get the trophy.

COMEBACK!!!
Use COMEBACK ability to increase momentum to MAX (Single Player) (9) 

Allow your AI opponent to beat you up at the start. Don’t mount any offense and without any momentum, a button prompt will appear prompting you to click to activate the comeback ability. Proceed to press again to launch a QTE. Successfully complete it to obtain the trophy. Do note that your superstar must have the comeback ability. It is recommended to include this ability to your custom superstar.

The WWE Arrives at a New Arena!
Hold an Exhibition at a Custom Arena (Single Player)  

After you have created a new arena, head over to play now and create any match type. Before starting the match, change the arena. In the selection screen, press to choose a custom arena. It will unlock during the loading screen.

Submission Specialist
Win 20 times with submissions in one session (Single Player) (15) 

You should always aim for submission victory while going for the 50 wins on hard. Alternatively, you can play an exhibition match against an easy AI difficulty and a weaker opponent. Focus on hitting the head and once he bleeds, proceed on to hold for a breaking point submission.

Wildman of the Ring
Break 20 tables, ladders, or chairs in one session (Single Player) (1) 

See Berserker

Berserker
Break 50 tables, ladders, or chairs in one session (Single Player)  

Unlike the trophy description, it can be done across many days if you want. It is recommended that you go for it in WWE Universe mode and book yourself into a TLC/Extreme Rules match on regular TV. Just play the match as you would breaking chairs/ladders/tables. You will get the trophy after destroying the 50th one.

Challenger
Win at least once on Hard difficulty or higher (Single Player)  

See Legend Status Accomplishments

Professional Material
Win 20 times on Hard difficulty or higher in one session (Single Player) (3) 

See Legend Status Accomplishments

Legend Status Accomplishments
Win 50 times on Hard difficulty or higher in one session (Single Player) (11) 

Ensure that your difficulty setting is set to hard or higher. Do this in WWE Universe mode and it will come naturally as you build up your superstar for championship contention. It can be done across multiple days if needed. If needed, you can always head over to play a match and win it. After the match has concluded, hit rematch and continue to do so until you get the trophy. Turn the AI slider down to make them weak to help you win easily.

Start as a Pro
Win using a Custom Superstar in WWE UNIVERSE (Single Player)  

Play and win your first match in WWE Universe mode using a created superstar to obtain it.

Rolling Now!
Build momentum up to 75% in WWE UNIVERSE using a Custom Superstar (Single Player) (2) 

See I Ain't Losing to Anyone!

I Ain't Losing to Anyone!
Build momentum up to 100% in WWE UNIVERSE using a Custom Superstar (Single Player)  

Keep on winning matches to build up your momentum. Your current momentum status can be found in the ‘Edit Superstar’ option in WWE Universe mode. You should have no trouble getting this way before you even win a Grand Slam of titles.

I'm Gonna be Champion
Become #1 Contender for a Championship in WWE UNIVERSE using a Custom Superstar (Single Player)  

Continue to win matches in WWE Universe mode to ascend the titles rankings. A No. 1 contender match for a specific title would usually be held a week before the PPV event. You would know it’s a contender match by looking at the match card. Play and win it to unlock the trophy.

First Step of a Glorious Career
Win one Championship title in WWE UNIVERSE using a Custom Superstar (Single Player)  

See Grand Slam Champion

I Like Titles
Win 3 championship titles in WWE UNIVERSE using a Custom Superstar (Single Player) (9) 

See Grand Slam Champion

Grand Slam Champion
Win 5 championship titles in WWE UNIVERSE using a Custom Superstar (Single Player) (33) 

The computer has to book you into a title match for it to count towards the trophy. You will not get a shot of other titles so long as your holding a major title. Upon winning a major title, drop it by going to ‘Edit Superstar’ and select any superstar to give them the title. This will free you up to fight for other titles. If you find yourself way below the ranking order and it doesn't seem to be climbing up, you can always go to ‘Edit Superstar’ and change the superstars above you in the ranking to something else, this would help move you up the rank.

The Birth of a Historic Tag Team
Win or defend one Tag Team Championship in WWE UNIVERSE using a Custom Superstar (Single Player) (6) 

Go to ‘Edit Team’ and create a Tag Team with any partner of your choosing so long as one of the ‘Tag Partner’ is a custom superstar. Once again if you’re not climbing up the title ranking, you can always head to ‘Edit Team’ and delete the teams above you, this would move you up the ranking order.

Mr. Money in the Bank
Win the Money In The Bank match in WWE UNIVERSE using a Custom Superstar (Single Player) (1) 

Play the match on easy AI difficulty with a CAW for an easier time. What you could do is to put one ladder on the stage so that only one is in play making the ring less messy. You will want to climb up the ladder and pull the briefcase at any given opportunity. You may also want to let the AI do part of the work for you by not interfering when one superstar is pulling the briefcase as it takes about 4-5 pulls to retrive it. Pull the AI down once a couple of pulls have been achieved and it would give you an easier time as you would only need a couple pulls.

Nesta had kindly pointed out that you can book yourself into the match but there's no confirmation whether the title you win by cashing in counts for the Grand Slam Champion. You will however get both MITB related trophies.

Souledge94 has kindly pointed out that with the latest patch:

1) You can still edit the match and put your own superstar in and win it and the trophy will unlock;
2) But by doing so, you can't cash in the briefcase to unlock A Successful Cash In trophy.
A Successful Cash In
Cash in Money In The Bank in WWE UNIVERSE and win using a Custom Superstar (Single Player) (15) 

Upon winning the briefcase, you can cash in on any single titles you choose. Click on a title match and a confirmation screen will appear asking whether you want to cash it in. Win the match to unlock the trophy. It's advisable to ensure your difficulty settings is set to easy to prevent any freak occurrence.

MrJamie88 has a new information to share with regards to this trophy:

I was looking to get the trophy for cashing in money in the bank. And I couldn't get into the MITB match. So I simulated a year and one of my custom superstars won the title and Cody Rhodes won MITB, so when the option came up to cash in I did; but I controlled the custom superstar who was the champion and won the match and the trophy popped!!

WrestleMania's My Destiny!
Win a Royal Rumble match at Royal Rumble PPV in WWE UNIVERSE (Single Player)  

You can win the Royal Rumble match as any superstar, not necessarily your custom superstar. Though it’s recommended you start as entrant #1 so as to clear the participants quickly. To eliminate a superstar, push them to the ropes or the turn buckle and a QTE will appear, successfully hit the majority of it to eliminate them. Alternatively, if you have a finisher icon, pressing will automatically eliminate them. It is advisable to always have a stored finisher available to rescue yourself should you get pushed to the ropes. Every elimination will gain you some momentum so you will have plenty of stored finisher. Always keep the number of superstars in the ring below 3 so it won’t be messy.

My target at WrestleMania is...!
As WWE UNIVERSE Royal Rumble winner, participate in the Royal Rumble Winner's Event (5) 

The Royal Rumble winner event will take place in the Raw after Elimination Chamber. Click or on the match to load into the match. You would then see a cutscene showing the RR winner. Once you get control of the superstar, enter the ring and attack any one of the champions. The person that you attacked would be the one that you face at WrestleMania.

Interfere in an AI vs AI WWE UNIVERSE fight and beat one opponent (Single Player) (5) 

In WWE Universe mode, select any match and there would be an option to press to interfere. Beat up any one of the opponents and call the referee to wake up for the pin, you will get the trophy after that.

Hit one of your taunt buttons ( ) and wait for the AI to wake-up, press to hit your finisher & to pin for the victory. It will also work if you attempt to steal your opponent's finisher (to steal, press & ). Just follow up with the pin after you stole the finisher.

Against the Odds

You have to win by submission by targeting a body part that is red. If you do not have a submission finisher, hold on a body part that is red to engage the breaking point submission, press all the face button to make the AI tap out.

Well Scouted
Reverse an opponent's finishing move (Single Player) (2) 

Start a match & allow the AI to beat you so that he could gain a finisher. You'll have to hit before the finisher is executed to reverse it. Spamming has little effect as to whether you can reverse it, instead focus on looking for the graphic to appear before hitting it. After a few tries, you should have no problem anticipating a move and pressing the reversal button.

For Whom the Bell Tolls

This is not difficult at all. Proceed to change the AI slider to make them weak, increase the damage of foreign objects and finisher and ensure that the difficulty is set to legend.

Once again you do not have to do it in one sitting, it can be done across multiple days.

Merciless Attack
Injure an opponent in WWE UNIVERSE (Single Player) (7) 

Play a no DQ match so that you can use weapons. It is not a guarantee you will injure someone by making all his body parts red as I have gotten someone injured before by hitting him with 2 chairs, a signature and a finisher; he didn’t even bleed. You know you have injured someone when a cut scene appear after the match where a medical personal comes down to the ring.

Reach the Ropes!
Crawl to the ropes during a submission (Single Player) (6) 

You should attempt this trophy in a 1-1 match with win condition set to submission only. DO NOT play a submission match as the rope break is set to off.

Do remember to also hit , , , so that you won't tap out during the process. Once a rope break is called, you will get your trophy.

Master of the Brawl

Note: It seems like the finishers you do during the RTWM story backstage brawls doesn't count to the trophy progression.
