How to use the new fighting styles to clamber to the top...

Hardcore
Obviously this is the best attribute to use if you’re getting into a Hardcore match, but it’s also surprisingly handy if you’re going into a ladder, TLC or I Quit match, because you’re more likely to bleed and incur limb damage in these. The only match type to avoid is First Blood, where you won’t be able to use your biggest asset - juicing.
Pair it with: Dirty - you can use the ref shove to take the official down, then use weapons to dish out the punishment.

Submission
Not many wrestlers have this, but it’s very useful in I Quit matches - as well as Triple Threats or Fatal Fourways where you can win with a sub as well as a pin. It’s also a very useful skill to use against online opponents who love isolating a limb and wearing you down until you die of boredom.
Pair it with: Technical. You’ll be able to counter subs, strikes and grapples, making you trickier to catch than a buttered gazelle.

Technical
This one’s handy if you’re quick on the counter button and good at building momentum. You’re best triggering your fighting style when your opponent’s got you hurt, giving you the chance to reverse several moves quickly and get things going your way once again.
Pair it with: High-flyer. Your combination of quickness and reversibility makes you almost impossible to catch.

Dirty
Ah, the fun skill. Easily your best ability is pushing the ref into your opponent - he’ll almost home in, giving you an easy breather. The super dirty move’s also pretty handy, but be careful when you’re arguing with the ref after a pin - chances are you’ll get clattered.
Pair it with: Showman. There’s nothing better than throwing the ref into your opponent, doing their own taunt and then smashing them in the plums to infuriate them even further.
