For any Road to WrestleMania storyline, your character will start at level 1 in the following four categories: Grapple Strike Damage, Strike Attack Damage, Momentum Gain Speed and Resistance To Damage. You will gain 225 skill points for every weekly match you win (unless stated otherwise) and an extra 50 points for every 1-on-1 Backstage brawl match you start. To do this, when you see different wrestlers walking around the backstage area before you head off to your week's events, push them. Once you get into a fighting stance, the backstage brawl match begins. You must K.O. your opponent to score the win and gain the extra points. Then, go to the training room to redeem your skill points. Also, if there is a Backstage Brawl Challenge match, once you win that challenge, you can initiate another brawl with him to gain an extra 50 points.
