Conclusion: be aware that this game takes up lots of memory and will not even load if you do not have enough memory left on your hdd i have cleared loads of space on mine and can still not get it to work very annoying!!!!!!
Summary: It seems like I encountered a little bug that prevents me from finishing the Storymode early on. In the Royal Rumble match in the CAW Storyline my PS 3 froze three times in a row at the exact same point. I stopped trying after three because I don't think that these resets are all that great for my console. Keep in mind there's a chance that it's only my copy but all I know is that I can't keep playing because the system crashes at a certain point.
