Hello and welcome to (Trumpet plays) my first guide, the Smack Down VS Raw 2006
FAQ/Walkthrough. After using Gamefaqs for over three years I have finally
decided to give back to the website I love so much. In this guide, I have
included help for all aspects of the game (Most of Story, and GM not included.)
My name is Matt my E-mail is bobeta5@gmail.com and I am more than happy to take
and answer any questions you have. And with that, on with the guide.

Basics (HBK2)

This is basically some of the stuff that has been added or changed form the
last game:
/Stamina\ (HBK2.1) A huge addition to the game. The stamina bar adds a ton of
strategy to your matches (I hated it and turned it off immediately). In a
nutshell, your stamina bar goes down whenever you do a move, or run, or do most
anything. The bar will recharge Its self automatically as long as you aren’t
doing anything, you can also recharge it manually by holding the select button.
If you run out of stamina, you will find it much harder to do moves, and will
have a slowdown after any amount of physical activity. 
/Finishers\ (HBK2.2) The finisher system has been changed from last years to
make it more realistic. The finisher meter is still there and raises and falls
depending on the damage you give and take. When the meter is filled, it will
begin flashing meaning a finisher is available. Here you can either land a
finisher or store it away. Although a stored finisher is left powerful, it
lasts longer so It’s a tossup. Likewise, once you store a finisher you can
raise your meter once again and have two finishers. You can not store this
finisher, so you must use it quickly. If you have two finishers, then you can
do several moves such as low blows, and Stolen Finishers. 
/Pre Match Mini-Games\ (HBK2.3) Before some matches, the option to play a pre
match game is offered. None of these are particularly useful if you win. But
they are a fun way to start a match. The matches are...

Test of Strength: A first to press type match. One of the four main buttons
will appear on screen, the first person to correctly press that button will
kick there opponent. If they win the second as well, they will knock them to
the mat. If not a third and final round will happen deciding the victor

Stare Down: A Duel type mini game. A button will appear on the screen and the
first to press X wins the game.

Lock Up: My favorite game: Both of you have a flashy bar that goes up and down.
The point is to stop the meter, when it is as close to full as possible. The
person who stops it when the bar is higher wins it.

None: Nothing happens, and no mini game happens...sissy.

Advanced moves (HBK3)
These are the moves that are a bit more advanced then just a grapple.
/Possum Pin\ (HBK3.1) This is a fun little feature that has won me quite a few
close matches against my friends. Start by gaining and storing a finisher right
away. Now hold down the circle button. Allow your opponent to do his worst to
you before sending you to the mat. Remember to not let go of Circle at any
time. Now here’s the tricky part. You must wait until your opponent attempts to
either strike or grapple you, and successfully counter the attack by pressing
L2 if it is a strike, and R2 if it a grapple. If you are successful, a cut
scene should play of you striking upwards, and roll your opponent into a very
difficult to escape, roll up pin. If you are not successful, your stored
finisher will be removed, and you will have to store another one and try again.
Patience is key here as you only need to land the move one time to complete the
/Reversing Finishers\ (HBK3.2) 
I don’t know about you, but this seems a lot harder then last years. Either way
this challenge is very doable and shouldn’t be too difficult. To reverse a
finisher you must press R2 + L2 when your opponent uses his finisher, but
before contact is made. The window of escape is very small so several attempts
may be necessary. If you really find yourself having trouble, use someone with
a high Technical skill like Benoit or Kurt Angle against an opponent that has a
finisher that can only be done when you are groggy and standing. (Triple H’s
Pedigree for example) When Trips or whoever has a finisher allow him to grapple
you without resistance and when you become dazed, quickly know what to do and
make the reverse.

Exhibition (ROFL)

For those looking for a quick match against friends, or CPU. This is also the
place to be for challenges.

Basic Matches (ROFL1)

For those looking to jump right into the action. Offers you all the matches to
play with one or two players. Subcategorized by match type.
/Single\ (ROFL1.1) The most basic match type. Win by pinfall, submission, count
out, or DQ. Has three match types.

No Manager: Like I said, your basic one on one no thrills match.

No Manager Vs. W/ Manager: same rules as regular match, but one person has
someone on their side helping them out. The manager can be told to distract the
ref, or to get a chair. 

W/ Manager Vs. W/ Manager: Basic match, but now both wrestlers have someone in
their corner.
/Tag Team\ (ROFL1.2) A 2 V 2, or 3 v 3 match. I really don’t like playing these
much but there important to get good at, there are thirteen match types

Normal Tag: Just like the kinds on RAW or Smack down (In every main event for
the last year) to tag your opponent, have your character close to your partner
and press the Square button while pressing the D-Pad to where he is. To get
yourself tagged back in hold square. Your man should hold his hand out, and
your partner will tag you back in. Winning is the same as regular matches so a
pin or submission is necessary.

Tornado Tag: Much more fun then regular tag. In this match, both men from both
teams are in the ring at the same time. First one to pin a member from the
other team wins if for their team.

Tag Vs Tag W/ Manager: What it sounds like, regular tag with one team having a
manager. All other rules apply

Tag W/ Manager Vs. Tag W/ Manager: Just like the one above, only both teams
have a manager

6-Man Tag: Same rules at 2 V 2, but an extra man on each side.

Tornado 6-Man Tag: Great match here. All six men in the ring at one time, first
team to get a pin wins it.

Elimination Tag: Same rules as regular tag. But once someone is eliminated. The
match turns to a 2-1 handicap tag match.

Elimination Tornado Tag: Starts as a regular Tornado Tag Match, but once a team
mate is pinned the match turn into a 2 on 1 handicap match.

Captains Fall Tornado 6-Man Tag: In this match, a wrestler on each team is
considered the team captain. While the captain gains nothing from being the
captain, if he is pinned, the other team wins the match. If someone else is
pinned. He is eliminated and the match becomes a 3 on 2 and so on until either
captain is pinned.

Elimination 6-Man Tag: Normal 3 V 3 tag match with elimination rules. Match
goes from 3 V 3 to 3 V 2 and so on.

Tornado 6-Man Elimination Tag: This is (you guessed it) Like a regular 3 V 3
tag match, only once someone is pinned, the match becomes a 3 V 2 and so forth.

Table Tornado Tag: Instead of pinning your opponent, the way you win this match
is by putting your opponent(s) through a table. Because it is Elimination, once
someone is put through a table, the match becomes a 2 on 1.

Table Tornado 6-Man Tag: Same as above, but three on three instead. One of my
favorite matches.
/Triple Threat\ (ROFL1.3) There is only one match here, so no sub category is
needed. In this match, the first person to pin someone, or make them submit is
the winner. Because there are three people in this match and not two, you don’t
actually have be pinned or made submit, in order to lose the match. Because of
this it is important to always be on your toes.
/Fatal 4-Way\ (ROFL1.4) Same rules as Triple Threat, but with four men instead
of three. First man to score a pinfall or submission is the winner. The other
three are losers. Due to its tendency to make one man look strong, but the
other three week, WWE tends not to do these much. 
/Handicap\ (ROFL1.5) A match where the odds are stacked against one person or
team, while giving a handicap to the other

One on Two: Simple a two on one match. The extra man gives a huge advantage to
the user making this match very hard to won as the single player.

One on Tag: Much easier to win then the One on Two Match. Basically same rules
as a regular match. Only you don’t have a tag partner. Because I rarely tag in
during tag matches in the first place, this really wasn’t that hard for me.

One on Three: Also known as a Fatal 4-Way in Day Of Reckoning 2, this just what
you think it is. Three men against you in tornado style. Even against three
super weak Divas. This is incredibly difficult to beat. The only way to win it
seems is by submission.

One on Trio: Like a one on Three, except a tag match. Amazingly not that hard
as they can’t beat you up all at once.

Tag on Trio: A two on three tag match. This Really isn’t that hard to do. 
/Royal Rumble\ (ROFL1.6) A WWE yearly stable is the Royal Rumble in January.
The basics of this match are as follows. Two men start in the ring. After 10
seconds, another man enters. This continues until there are six men in the ring
in which the PS2 can’t take any more till someone is eliminated. Instead of
eliminating someone by pinfall or submission like a normal match, you eliminate
them by using the rehashed and poorly made ring out meter. To use this, first
strong Irish whip your opponent against and over the ropes onto the apron. Once
that happens, run up to him and press Circle to start the meter. Once this
happens, button mash your controller in order to deplete their bar. Likewise,
if it is you on the apron jam buttons to avoid having yourself thrown off. Be
the last man standing to win. Although the Rumble is 30 men by default. Options
of 10, 15, 20, and 25, men can be chosen.

Main Events: (ROFL2) Eighteen main events are available in this game; most of
them are very fun. Because most of them have sub categories as well, I will
address all of them as main categories. 
/3 Stages Of Hell\ (ROFL2.1) This isn’t really a match, but instead a 2-3 falls
with you choosing which three matches to play. This match is 1 V 1 only,
therefore the available matches are Single, First Blood, Hardcore, Hell in a
Cell, Ladder, Last Man Standing, Steel Cage, Submission, Table, and TLC. First
to win two matches wins.
/Backstage Brawls\ (ROFL2.2) Brought back from HCTP but not even half as fun.
These matches all take place in one of three backstage areas, none of which are
particularly cool.

Backstage Brawl: Takes place in large concrete area. Lots of weapons and props
line the arena for you to use line the area. To use many of the props, strong
Irish whip your opponent into them.

Bar Brawl: Take place in what I can only assume is the bar that Tim White
killed himself at Armageddon. Like the Backstage, this is a hardcore match with
a bunch of stuff to throw your opponent into. Much smaller then the Backstage.

Parking Lot Brawl: Takes place in a circle, surrounded by cars. Each can be
used as a different weapon if you throw there opponents into them.
/Battle Royal\ (ROFL2.3) Multi men free for all matches where you eliminate
someone by pinfall or submission.

4/5/6-Man Battle Royal: As I stated, multi man elimination mask. When someone
is pinned or made submit, they go to the outside to grab people’s legs and
stuff. The last person remaining wins.
4/5/6-Man Battle Royal over the Top Rope. This is almost identical to the Royal
Rumble, only with six starting people. The Ring-Out meter is in use here. Be
the only remaining player to win.
/Buried Alive Match\ (ROFL2.4) This is the biggest additional Match Type and
one of my favorites. The match starts inside the ring, but is likely to quickly
drift into burial area to the back of the stage. In the area is a coffin, in
which you must place your opponent to win. To do so, strong Irish whip your
opponent directly into the coffin until he falls down, leaning on the coffin.
Now run up to him and press Circle to start the first of two mini games. The
first is a straight up button mashing contest. Where if the red bar reaches the
top of the meter in five seconds or so, the second mini game will begin. If not
the character will just hop up. In the second game a blue bar will be at the
bottom of a tube, with a ball on the top. When the first player presses the
right control stick the ball will drop down the tube. It is the second player’s
job to press the R2 or L2 button when the blue ball is inside the blue line. If
successful, your character will throw his hand out, therefore escaping the
cage. If not, player one closes the door and wins the match.
/Elimination Chamber\ (ROFL2.5) This is a six man Elimination Match with some
very special rules. The match starts with two wresters in the ring. Surrounding
the ring is a very large chain link chamber. There are also four glass
chambers, all of them holding the other superstars. Every minute, a chamber
will be open at random, adding another wrestler to the mix. Likewise, the cage
and chambers can be used as excellent weapons, doing almost a full body’s worth
of damage if you strong Irish whip them into it. Last man unpinned or submitted

6-Man Tag Elimination Chamber: This match starts out normal, but soon becomes a
handicap match when the first chamber is opened. It then becomes a 2 V 2, and
then a 3 V 2, and finally becomes an even 3 V 3. From here it is a standard
elimination match. Last team with any remaining members wins it for their team.
/First Blood\ (ROFL2.6) The famous botched match that resulted in Kane getting
the Title for a day. In this match, the goal is to *shocker* be the first to
make your opponent bleed from the head. This can be done by getting your
opponent’s head into red, and then landing head injuring moves like the DDT, or
you can just go grab a chair and go to town. Either way, making your opponent
bleed instantly ends the match.
/Fulfill Your Fantasy\ (ROFL2.7) Grab a pillow, beat them up, down plus Circle
to disrobe them. To win the match have your fantasy bar reach the top...there
you go. 
/Hardcore\ (ROFL2.8) Very similar to a regular match, only no DQ or count out.

Single: As I said, nothing much different from any other match, except that you
are free to grab a chair or table to beat your opponent with.

Single V Single W/ Manager: Actually a big advantage here, as the manager can
now grab a chair and help in whaling on the opponent

Single W/ Manager V Single W/ Manager: Not much to say here. You both get a
manager, HURRAY!

Tornado Tag: This one is a lot of fun. Like a regular tornado tag match, only
with weapons. Using said weapons is highly recommended to win the match.

Tornado 6-Man Tag:  See above, add a member to each team.

Triple Threat Tornado Tag: Note that this is 2 V 2 V 2. This is also a lot of
fun, if not a bit over crowded. Similar rules apply to other hardcore matches.

Triple Threat: It’s a Triple Threat...With Weapons! Look at the madness!

Fatal 4-Way: Another thrown in match because Yukes wanted to have 100 matches.
I honestly doubt more then 10% of people reading this guide know this match
exists, I didn’t.
/Hell in a Cell\ (ROFL2.9) The ultimate feud breaker. The Hell in the Cell
Match is a favorite of almost everyone.

Single: HIAC in short, is a giant cage (with roof) that surrounds the ring,
with about three feet of give on each side. The cage can be used as a weapon,
however it isn’t very effective. The main damage dealer comes from escaping the
cage. To do this, press Triangle a couple times while facing the door. You
should quickly escape. Press Triangle again while pressing against the cage to
climb it. Whether you’re playing a human or a CPU, they should quickly follow
you to the top. By throwing your opponent off or through the cage, you can deal
a massive amount of damage to your opponent, often enough to get the pin.
Throwing them off the cage is easier, but it doesn’t look cool so through the
cage is the way to go. To do this, land a power move on top of the middle cage
area which looks differently. Do two power moves on the cage and your opponent
should fall through, you hopping down safely. This is generally an awesome 

Tornado Tag: Like you guessed, this is a normal HIAC, with teams! I still
recommend heading to the top of the cage, while your partner holds the other
guy off.

Triple Threat: There isn’t a whole lot for me to say. A three man HIAC. Just
keep yourself in the action because you don’t have to be pinned to lose the 

Fatal 4-Way: See above, add one guy.

Armageddon HIAC: A seriously awesome match, and probably one of the most played
by myself and many others. In this match, six superstars duke it out in the
cell. Now if only it was elimination...
/Iron Man\ (ROFL2.10) A time limit match, which counts total pinfalls and

Single: An Iron Man Match in a nut shell is a timed match, in which you do not
win by scoring a pinfall or a submission. Instead, each time you pin or make
your opponent submit your player scores a point. Once the time runs out, the
person with the most points wins. This used to be (with the cage) the feud
ender, but is now not used as much. While the default time is at 15 minutes,
times of 10, 20, 30, and 60 are also available. But come on, the only real
man’s time is the full hour.

Single V Single W/ Manager: Not much to say here. Like every other Manager Match

Single W/Manager V Single W/ Manager: No different here.
/Ladder\ (ROFL2.11) A belt is hung above the ring, well...you gunna go get it?

Single: Yukes really Botched this match. They could have just kept last years,
but instead decided to remove a bunch of stuff, and add an extra unnecessary
ladder, blech. Either way, the goal of this match is to climb a ladder, planted
under the belt, and grabbing the belt hanging below. To do this grab a ladder,
and press Square only to plant it under the belt. Then press any direction plus
Square to begin climbing. When you reach the top, press Circle to make a grab
for the belt, you will hang from the belt, and after a few seconds fall to the
ground and a winner is you. 

Single V Single W/ Manager: Completely obsolete, we all know no one will ever
play this, moving on.

Single W/ Manager V Single W/ Manager: Moving along.

Tornado Tag: Fun stuff here. A two V two ladder match. Not much I can about
this that you don’t already know. This is my favorite match to play with me
friend If that means anything to you.

Triple Threat Tornado Tag: A 2 V 2 V 2 Ladder match. This is really fun, but so
wild and crazy, that it becomes difficult to play. Still, if a few people leave
the ring, this is really fun and exiting.

Triple Threat: Surprisingly easy to win. For some reason, computers seem to
love duking it out on the outside of the ring, giving you plenty of time to set
up and climb the ladder. If in the match you want to play fair then dual
finishers may be needed to win the match.

Fatal 4-Way: Always an intense match. Very difficult to get the sneak win, as
someone always seems to find a way to knock you down, or pick you off. This is
tons of fun to play, if you can somehow get more then four controllers to go. 
/Last Man Standing\ (ROFL2.12) This is a super fun match, as long as you’re not
on expert.

Single: To win this match, you must beat your opponent crapless until they
can’t answer a ten count. This is actually really easy while playing on easy,
normal, or even hard for the most part. Beating this match on Legend is near
impossible however. The only way I found I could do it was to have them
entirely in red. And then land a Power Bomb finisher, when they had almost no
stamina, and an empty finisher bar. He was still getting up as 10 were counted.

Single V Single W/ Manager: Uh...ya. Same match. One person has a manager.

Single W/ Manager V Single W/ Manager: See above for my very highly detailed
write up
/Slobber Knocker\ (ROFL2.13) A gauntlet type match with weakened opponents.

No Limit: Raise your hand if you actually are a fan of this match. No one?
Didn’t think so. As the match goes, your character starts in the ring with full
health. Another character will join you with I believe a 1 in every stat bar.
Because of this, after only a few moves, you should be able to pin him. A
pinfall or submission scores you a point. These points continue to total, until
you are pinned in which the match ends.

Rankings: Where you can see the current high scores for the Slobber Knocker
Match. The default number one is Eddie Guerrero with 30.
/Special Referee\ (ROFL2.14) Normal rules with a wrestler referee.

Single: Everything is the same as a regular singles match, except with the
wrestler ref. The ref uses the square button to count the pin falls, and count
outs. And that’s about it.

Normal Tag: Same as above, only a tag match

Iron Man: Same as above, only an Iron Man match

Hell in a Cell: Same as above: Only a HIAC match

Last Man Standing: The ref is a huge factor in this match as he basically
decides how fast the ten count will be. As far as I’ve seen, all human refs
always count fast, making for much faster matches.
/Steel Cage\ (ROFL2.15) Formerly the ultimate feud ender, now rarely the main
event of Raw.

Single: As you may have guessed, this match takes place in a steel cage. While
the Match can be won by pinfall or submission, escaping the cages by either the
door, or by going over the top wins you the match. To escape by door, Irish
whip (not strong, regular) your opponent into the bottom left turnbuckle. Next
go up to your opponent and press circle plus any direction. A superplex should
result, and a cut scene should play starting the cage escape mini game. In this
game, you want to stop the bar, when it is at its peak. If successful in this,
you should reach the door and win the match. As far as escaping the cage goes,
first, don’t expect to escape the cage unless your opponent is very weak
already. Land your finisher and press square while next to the cage. You man
should begin to climb. Press square again to begin the mini game. Like the cage
door mini game, the point is to press x when the flashy bar is at its peak. If
your opponent is knocked out, this should be easy. If not, you may need to get
lucky in that your opponent will often miss in knocking you off.

Tornado Tag: A much more practical cage match, as you can actually win through
strategy, and not just landing a finisher. As you guessed this is a 2 V 2 Cage
match, only one person has to get the pin or escape the cage to win it for
their team.

Triple Threat: Your best bet here is to wait for the other two to get into a
fight, and then make a quick run for the cage. Your opponents will probably
knock you off. But sometimes you might get lucky and escape. And dat, das cool.

Fatal 4-Way: What I believe to be the most difficult match in the game besides
the handicaps. In this match, escaping the cage is seemingly impossible, and
getting the pin is just as hard. I found the only way to win was to let some
one land a finisher, and then deal two more to get all three down. Then get a
pin or try to gun it out of the cage.

Single Pin & Give Up: Basically a cage match, where you have to win by pinfall
or submission. I personally would have preferred an escape only cage but that’s
just me.

Triple Threat Pin & Give Up: Same as above, only a triple threat.

Fatal 4-Way Pin & Give Up: Every bit as hard as the original 4 way. Only you
know, you have to get a pin or submission.
/Submission\ (ROFL2.16) A normal match, where you can’t pin people or leave the

Single: As stated, rules in this match are the same as a normal match. The
difference is that the only way to win your match is to make your opponent
submit, or pass out.

Ultimate Submission: Like an Iron Man match only with submission only rules.
The default time is set at 15 minutes, but times of 10, 20, 30, and 60 minutes
are available.
/Table\ (ROFL2.17) A match where you win by putting your opponent through a 

Single: This is a normal no DQ match with a twist on how you must win it. All
around the ring you should find several tables. The point of the match is to
set up one of the tables, and put your opponent through it however necessary.
This can be done by doing a power move while you both are standing on the
table, or by doing an ariel move when your opponent is lying on the table.

Tornado Tag: The only difference between this and the Tornado Tag is that the
one above is elimination. Therefore that one is more fun to play. But you can
still play non elimination if you want.

Triple Threat: This match has a weird way of ending in about 50 seconds. Still,
it’s a triple threat Table Match and kind of fun.

Fatal 4-Way: see above, make 50 seconds 30 seconds. Add one person.

Tornado 6-Man Tag: This is a pretty wild match, but just isn’t as exiting as
the elimination version, you should probably play that.

Triple Threat Tornado Tag: Pretty similar as the once above. Decently fun match.
/TLC\ (ROFL2.18) A hardcore match, where weapon use is highly encouraged.

Single: The match has the same rules as any no DQ match. You win by pinfall or
submission. The only difference is that several chairs and other weapons line
the ring for your use. Using these weapons is highly recommended as they will
give you a huge upper hand in this match. 

Tornado Tag: A tag team match with weapons. God writing these match types has
been a pain.

Triple Threat: Lots of fun, if you like Triple Threat TLC matches.

Fatal 4-Way: And the final Match type. This is actually one of my favorite
matches to play. Using the weapons is a must to get the win here.
/Title Match\ (ROFL2.19) Not an actual match, but instead an option to put a
championship belt on the line in a match. The belts (and defaults holders are)

World Heavyweight Championship: Batista
WWE Championship: John Cena
WWE Tag Team Championship: Muhammad Hassan and Daivari (Because MNM isn’t in
the game)
World Tag Team Championship: William Regal, and Robert Conway
Intercontinental Championship: Carlito
United States Championship: Christ Benoit
Cruiserweight Championship: Paul London
Women’s Championship: Trish Stratus
The Million Dollar Championship: Ted DiBiase
The Hardcore Title: Mankind

When you choose any of the titles, you will go to a list of available titles
for the belt. Choose one and your players. (The current champion is pre
selected. Besides that there are no differences to the matches.

Created Championship: Same rules as above, only with your own created Title,
with your own created rules.

Season Mode: (F4W)

Season Mode can be summed like this. There are ten different storylines. Four
are exclusive to Raw, and four to Smackdown. The other two challenges, Legends
tour, and The Royal Rumble, happen in both seasons. I will do week by week run
down of each storyline. Note that this should become much more in depth with a
coming update. (Spoiler warning)

SmackDown! Season: (F4W1)
Takes place during a hit by a car Teddy Long Rein

Prologue: (Note, this always starts the Smack Down Season, despite the
storylines you get: The cut scene starts with Torrie Wilson walking in the
parking lot. The Smack Down GM teddy long calls out to her, and says there is
something he needs to tell her. Torrie explains that she has to make a flight
leaving soon. Teddy tells her that he will talk to her later. As Torrie is
walking away a car is heard from off stage. The mystery car floors it, and hit
Teddy Long. Torrie hears the accident and runs to Teddy crying for help.

/Torrie’s Contract\ (F4W1.1) 
(Don’t use JBL, Orlando Jordan, RVD, John Cena, or the Bashams

Week One: This storyline begins with John Cena and Torrie Wilson talking in the
locker room. You quickly enter the room as well and begin questioning Torrie on
what she saw at the incident. John quickly comes to her defense, this causing
you to suspect him instead. This argument is broken up when Rob Van Damn enters
the locker room as well. RVD says he was running some errands (a cookie for
whoever gets the reference) while Teddy was being hit. He gives no witness
however making his alibi seem weak. You are then presented with two choices.
You can either choose and therefore call out Cena, or RVD. Your choice here
will effect who you face in the following Match.

Match: You Vs. John Cena or RVD
Single No Manager

Just an average singles match here. RVD is much easier to be due to his weaker
skills and lack of finishing move. If you’ve been playing this game for a while
this should be no sweat
Week Two: 

This cut scene has you walking down the hall way where you quickly bump into
whoever you chose not to fight last week. They thank you for not accusing them,
and instead accusing the other person. You then tell them that you do not think
they are innocent; this leads them to get angry with you and challenge you to a
match tonight. While your opponent leaves Cole and Taz note that although your
opponent is usually calm, tonight they are particularly defensive.

Match: You Vs. John Cena or RVD
Single No Manager

Just like that last match. I had Cena here and is still wasn’t much trouble at
all. Just stay on the offensive as much as you can and this should be pretty 
Week Three: John Cena starts this scene in the ring, bad mouthing RVD in a Rap
and accusing him of running down Teddy Long. RVD then appears microphone if
hand. He enters the ring and confronts Cena. He calls Cena Vanilla ice and
challenges Cena to a match. Cena accepts and says to go right now. At this
Torrie Wilson makes her way to the ring. She asks the two to shake hands and
call it off. They both deny this claim. Cena says he would beat RVD right now
is Torrie wasn’t there. RVD says that he will be the one giving the beating, so
ends the scene with Torrie standing in the ring alone.

Torrie is later confronted by JBL who jokingly accuses her of hitting Teddy.
JBL asks Torrie is before he was hit, Teddy asked her about any contracts. You
show up and JBL runs off. Torrie asks you to help her out in the match between
John and RVD. You recommend letting the two go at it, but she asks you to be
the special referee in the match as a favor to her. You head off to change
ending the scene.

Match: John Cena Vs. RVD With you as special Referee
Special Referee Single

Impossible to win or lose this match, and it seemingly doesn’t matter who you
let win or lose. Just fast count for whoever you like. The problem with Special
Referee matches is that there terrible with only one player.

After the match, all three of you continue to argue in the ring. Torrie comes
out yet again and yells at all of you to stop it. She says she doesn’t like it
that they are all fighting just to impress her. She says she knows there is one
way to get them to stop fighting. She says that at Judgment Day there will be a
Triple Threat match for her contract. The winner will acquire her services for
a year, and if either of the two losers don’t act like gentlemen to her, she
will never talk to them again. Taz notes that because there is no GM, anyone is
able to make matches.
Week Four (Judgment Day): Cole opens the match by saying that there are no
titles on the line, but Torrie Wilson’s contract is more then enough. Taz says
that he is heavily considering strapping his boots back on and making this a
fatal four-way. 

Match: You Vs. RVD Vs. John Cena
Triple Threat

Cena and RVD are both formidable foes in this match, so know that you will have
to take it seriously to get the win. The only real advice I can give you is
that after you land a finisher and know you can get a pin to work, strong Irish
whip your other opponent over the ropes onto the concrete outside. This allows
you to get the pin without it being broken up.

After the match JBL comes out. He says that it is unfortunate that the three of
them were fighting over something that was already his. He says that before
Teddy Long was hit by the car, he signed an agreement with him that gave him
Torrie Wilson’s valet services. He thanks the three of them for the show, as
you, RVD, and Cena look angry.
Week Five: JBL enters with Orlando to begin the scene followed by a reluctant
Torrie. JBL thanks the booing crowd. JBL says he is a millionaire, the greatest
champion ever, and very humble. But he says of all his achievement, acquiring
Torrie is his proudest. You enter and tell JBL that despite all his money, he
couldn’t get women without buying her. JBL defends himself by saying he is a
WRESTLING GAWD! You challenge JBL to a match tonight for Torrie’s contract. JBL
laughs you off and says you aren’t in his league. He does tell you to get one
of your boyfriends backstage and challenge his cabinet instead.

You are now given a choice of who to team up with, either RVD or Cena.

Match: You and RVD, or Cena Vs. Orlando Jordan, and the Basham Brothers
Tag on Trio Handicap Match

A pretty difficult match that I usually skip because I hate Tag and Handicap
matches. Still both of your players should be higher then any member of the
cabinet making this easier. Try to keep one of the Bashams from getting the
tag, and then land a submission move to get the win.

After the match, the Bashams sneak in the ring and beat you and your partner
with chairs. They then set up a table as well. Your partner gets thrown up, And
is hit with a snapshot through the table.
Week Six: The scene starts with Torrie visiting you and RVD/Cena (whoever you
didn’t choose last scene) in a locker room. Torrie says that JBL has agreed to
put his contract on the line in an Iron Man Match. She says that whoever wins
the contract will have it for life, meaning that if JBL wins, he will have it
forever. Torrie also says that whoever wants the contract shot must defeat
Orlando Jordan in a match tonight. This causes the two of you to begin a fight
over who gets the right to take on Orlando Jordan. RVD/Cena says that the two
of you will settle this like he used to back in the day, in a hardcore match.
Cole notes that it’s crazy for there to be a match, to decide who gets a match,
to be in a match.

Match: You Vs RVD/Cena Hardcore Match
Hardcore Single

Hardcore matches are still pathetically easy. Just use and abuse the weapons
available and the win should come easily.

Match 2: You Vs Orlando Jordan W/ JBL
Single Vs Single W/ Manager

Due to the fatigue of the Hardcore match, you start this match in all yellow
making it much more difficult. Even more so, Orlando seems to be on some
serious steroids in this match as he is much harder then any other normal
opponent I have ever faced. This is one of the very rare branching paths in the
story line, I will address if you win first.
Week Seven (Win against Orlando):

On the way to the ring, Cole and Taz address that JBL must be surprised that
Orlando could not handle you last week. Cole also note to the fans (you) that
this match is not for the title, and only for Torrie’s contract. Taz says that
he would prefer Torrie over the title anyway.

Match: You Vs JBL
Iron Man Match

The most important part of this match is always staying on the offensive. The
more Color JBL is in then you the better. A good idea is to work on one part of
the JBL’s body and then continuously lock in submission B types as much as you
can. This is pretty cheap but it makes this match much easier.

After the match you celebrate with Torrie and her contract is yours!
Week seven (lose against Orlando) 

Match: You Vs Renee Dupree

Surprise! Your on Velocity! This match is about as hard as you would think it
would be because your facing Renee Dupree. Renee should probably have no stats
higher then you so just go to town on him. I was personally offended however
that my CAW Bobeta, who has been World Champion in every Smackdown, DOR, No
Mercy, and every other game ever made, is now a lowly jobber on Velocity. Who
am I Benoit? And that’s it. Kind of a weak way to end the story line huh?
/Urning you Spot:\ (F4W1.2)
(Don’t Use Undertaker, Kurt Angle, Booker T, or Eddie Guerrero)

Week One: The scene starts with you confronting Booker T in the locker room
about Theodore long. Booker becomes very defensive and says you are wrongfully
accusing him of running Teddy Down. Booker says you don’t have the right to
play detective, and that he isn’t answering any question from someone like you.
He says that if you really want him to answer your questions, to beat him in
the ring tonight.

Match: You Vs Booker T

Just a little thing that made me chuckle, the first match of the night was
Undertaker and Charlie Haas Vs Eddie Guerrero and Orlando Jordan. I just
thought it was funny considering the storyline. Anyway, Booker T is pretty
tough in this match, but shouldn’t be anything you can’t handle. Just keep him
on the mat and the win should be yours.

After the match, you attempt to confront Booker T when suddenly The
Undertaker’s music hits and blue fog fills the ring. Taker gives a choke slam
to Booker that looks like it was Hogan taking it. Cole comments that he has
never seen Taker so focused on destroying someone as the scene ends.
Week Two: You start the scene, stretching in the hall. Kurt Angle addresses you
on convincing Taker to attack Booker. You tell Angle you didn’t do anything,
and the two of you begin to feud. Kurt says it’s odd that you are accusing
everyone of taking down Teddy, but when it is you on trial for taking someone
out, you have nothing to say. You say you don’t need Taker, or anyone else to
help yourself, and challenge Kurt to a match. Kurt says he can’t believe you
are challenging him, an Olympic gold medalist to a match. He says that it will
be a submission only match, and that if Taker shows up, he will put both of you
six feet under. Cole notes that Kurt is out tonight to get revenge for your
actions last week. Taz adds that Kurt is mentally prepared to take care of the
Undertaker if he happens to show up.

Match: You Vs Kurt Angle
Submission Match

First, if your character has an eight or so submission stat or less, understand
that you will have to beat Kurt by submission B. He will be too tough to out
button mash. Otherwise treat this like any other match, go to work on a certain
body part of Kurt’s and make it red. Then slap on a submission. (B type
recommended.) If he escapes, slap the same move on again and repeat.

After the match you stare at Angle as Taker’s gong hits and smoke fills the
arena. Again Taker appears in the ring and stares down Angle as you watch on.
Angle tries to attack Taker but nothing seems to affect him. Taker hits Angle
with a bunch of punches and lands a really weak looking Last ride on Angle.
Taker death pins Kurt as his music sounds. Taz notes that you are getting off
damage free yet again.
Week Three: The scene starts with Kurt and Booker in the ring. Kurt says he fed
up with what is going on. He says that Booker and he have little in common but
they have come together. Booker says he doesn’t like him much either, but they
have both been punked out by Taker and his friend. They both call out Taker and
his little buddy (you). Instead, Eddie Guerrero’s theme music is heard as he
walks to the ring. Eddie tells Angle to hold on and that the two of them have a
match tonight. Eddie says that Angle is just using this as an excuse to getting
out of fighting him. Angle says this Eddie knows this isn’t true, and that
Eddie just needs to wait his turn. Eddie then says that instead it will be him
and you Vs Booker and Angle. Booker and Angle agree as the scene ends.

Match: You and Eddie Guerrero Vs Kurt Angle and Booker T
Normal Tag

What else can I say? It’s a tag match. Let Eddie deal the major damage and then
go in and get the pin or submission. I just skipped it because, well I hate tag

Eddie is seen on the locker room afterwards talking to an urn. You address
Eddie and tell him that Taker didn’t appear in the match. You see Eddie is
hiding something and tell him to show you. Eddie shows you an empty hand, and
you demand to see the other one, he swaps the item and shows you another empty
hand. You tell Eddie to show you what he has or you’ll make him. Eddie shows
you the urn of the Undertaker and says he found it a couple weeks ago. He says
that because there is no GM it is survival of the fittest. He says that you can
join him as well to make the unstoppable force of you, him, and Taker. He tells
you to make a choice of if you are with him or against him. And you must decide
before next Sunday’s PPV No Mercy.

You are then given two choices, to be with, or against Eddie. I highly
recommend with as it make the following match quite a bit easier. I will assume
you picked with as I’m pretty sure only the match is different and not any
Week Four: (No Mercy)

Booker and Angle are in the ring again. Booker says that Eddie stole the urn,
and is now starting a posse. Booker says that it isn’t gunna happen. Angle
calls both of you out for a no DQ rematch. Angle says that if you and Eddie
have any respect at all, you will do the match without the urn, Taker, or
cheating. Eddie reminds Angle that the PPV is called No Mercy and that is what
will be given. He agrees to the match but says the match will not be what Angle
wants and Taker will be there.

Match: You and Taker (With Eddie) Vs Kurt and Booker
Tag W/ Manager Vs Tag

Note that DQ is turned off in this match, instantly making it ten times easier,
and ten times more fun. Use the no DQ here to your full advantage by grabbing a
weapon, and going to town with it. Work on Booker T as he will be easier to
make submit.

After the match you are seen celebrating with Taker in the ring. Taz notes that
as long as Eddie has the urn, he is calling all the shots.
Week Five: You and Eddie are seen backstage. You tell Eddie that you and Booker
have a hardcore rematch tonight, and for Taker to help him out. You say you are
tired of Booker, and want to take him out of the picture, permanently. Eddie
says he can’t give you Taker because he lost the urn even though he is holding
it in plain view. You confront him on the urn and Eddie says that he has a big
match against Kurt Angle and that he needs Taker for himself. Eddie says that
you don’t need Taker to beat Booker T. You become very angry at this and tell
Eddie that this wasn’t part of the deal and that he isn’t keeping his end of
the bargain. You then tell Eddie that you don’t need his or Taker’s help. You
storm off as Eddie looks on. Cole says that even Booker T must be relaxed that
Taker will not be showing up in your match.

You Vs Booker T
Single Hardcore

Weapons = easy. The Bookman will have no chance when you go to town on him with
chair shots. Just stay on the offense and never let Booker get a shot on you
with a weapon. Keep your cool and pick up the win.

You are shown in the Eddies locker after wards. You break into Eddie’s locker
to find Taker’s Urn. You grab it and walk away quickly with it.
Week Six: 

Match: You Vs Eddie Guerrero

No more or less hard then any other match you have ever played. Eddie is pretty
strong but nothing you shouldn’t be able to handle. And with no Taker helping
out this is even easier.

After the match you knock Eddie off the apron and you begin celebrate, suddenly
the lights dim and Taker appears in the ring. You grab the urn but is doesn’t
do anything. Taker knocks the urn out of your hand and delivers a choke slam to
you. Taker looks at you as Eddie grabs a mic and enters the ring smiling. Eddie
tells you that next time to leave stealing to the expert. Eddie says that you
stole a fake urn from his locker, while he kept the real one. Eddie says that
you look like you are in a lot of pain, but that your pain will come to end
soon. Eddie says that at Survivor Series you will have a buried alive match
with Taker. Taker taunts as the scene ends.
Week Seven: (Survivor Series)

Match: You Vs Undertaker
Buried Alive Match

Taker is surprisingly not too terribly hard in this match. However you will
have a hell of a time winning the real way. Instead I highly recommend winning
with a casket finisher, to do that have a stored and flashing finisher. Then
Strong Irish whip Taker to the coffin, and press L1 to win the match. For more
help check out the challenges section for tons of Buried Alive flavored 

Eddie comes to the coffin area any is visibly angry. He opens the casket and
begins to yell at Taker. Taker grabs Eddie by the throat and choke slams him
into the coffin then closes the door. You are seen with an urn which is
seemingly the real one. You give Taker back his urn thus ending the story line.

/Uneasy Allies\ (F4W2.1)

(Don’t use Triple H, Ric Flair, or Shelton Benjamin)

The Raw season starts and...Someone has stolen the Championship belt! Just
kidding, the match instead starts with a match with the current champion Triple
H. After the Match, Trips and Flair beat you all over and until Shelton
Benjamin helps you out. The feud between you and Triple H continues until The
Big Show and John Cena invade from Smack Down. This causes you and Triple H to
team up in taking down the team of Cena and TBS.

/A Very Special Story\ (F4W2.2)

(Don’t use Eugene, William Regal, Christian, or Edge) 

This match involves you going for Edge and Christian’s tag team title with the
partner of Eugene, because William Regal is injured. The plot is made much more
complex when Heel Trish tricks Eugene into missing the big match. This ends
with a final match against E & C for the belts. However is and when you win,
evil Bichoff decides to take your titles as you were defending Regal’s titles,
which I guess you can’t do.

/Wrestlemania SCSA version\ (F4W2.3)

(Don’t use Stone Cold, Batista, JBL, Chris Benoit, Kane, or Randy Orton)

This match involves JBL attempting to buy the WWE from under Vince’s nose,
something that I don’t think is at all possible in real life. He is able to do
this do to a Mole on the Raw roster. This story involves you trying to find out
the culprit and bring him to justice. Your final opponent you fight at
Wrestlemania, who he is depends on a choice you must make.

/Wrestlemania Jimmy Hart version\ Coming soon!

(Don’t use Triple H, JBL, The Hurricane, Ric Flair, Chris Jericho, 

Multi season Story lines: (F4W3) While the Rumble is guaranteed, the legends
tour happens randomly, depending on the character you pick.
/Time to Rumble\ (F4W3.1)

This story line only lasts a few weeks. It starts with you entering Vince’
office and him offering you two choices. The first is an Iron Man match, where
for every point you end with higher the your opponent, your spot will move up
one spot. The other option is a triple threat, where winning it will make you
the last entrant, but losing will make you the first. This leads into the Royal
Rumble. If you win, you get the Royal Rumble trophy. If you lose, a scene plays
and you are entered into a six man Battle Royal. If you win this the story
continues, if not GAME OVER MAN!
/Legends Tour\ (F4W3.2) This storyline is meant to be a RAW storyline, however
Smack Down has it too. You get this storyline if you use a character when they
would normally be in a storyline. For example, the urning your spot storyline
is the default second storyline for SD. However, if you choose Taker, Eddie,
Angle, or Booker T you will receive the Legends storyline instead

In the storyline RAW decides to host a WWE Legends tour. In this tour, all the
WWE legends have matches and as you are a future legend, you are invited as
well. Several different matches are included against WWE legends such as a
submission match with Bret Hart, a Bar Brawl with Mankind, and a huge 6-Man
Legends Battle Royal. 

GM Mode: (TNA)

In this mode, you take the role of the GM of either RAW or Smack Down, 
and compete against the other brand to become the number one show. You will do
this by making your own feuds, matches, and PPV cards. At the end of the year
the brand with the highest number of fans wins the coveted GM of the year award
and a GM mode trophy as well. Note that this can be played, and the trophy
gotten with two players,

Before You Start (TNA1)
/Brand Choosing\ (TNA1.1) To begin select whichever brand you like more. Please
note that if you choose default rosters then Smackdown will have a slightly
superior roster. Also note that either way Raw receives the Elimination Chamber
at the New Years Revolution PPV. Finally please note that Smackdown is the B
show and you should pick RAW as it is superior in every way. Next you’re given
the option of default rosters or to pick your own through a draft. If you
choose default, feel free to skip the next section, if you choose Draft please
read the next section 
/Draft\ (TNA1.2) As the Tips menu says, the draft is a single pick alternate.
If your first, pick either Taker or Trips. If your second, pick who wasn’t
picked between Taker and Trips. For the rest of your pics use your best
judgment for who you think is good. To make it easier highlight the popularity
colum and press the Circle Button. This will sort everyone into popularity.
This by far the most important stat. In fact I don’t even think skill matters.
(Cough Hogan Cough). For contract deals give a year to your first three guys, a
six month to your fourth guy, and then three monthers and weekers depending who
you pick. At the end you should somewhere between 500k and a million left over.
A important note for Raw is to not bother picking up divas like Trish when you
normally would, but instead at the very end. Smackdown has no women’s division;
therefore they will never take them. If you are on Smackdown however, cruisers
like Rey Mysterio will be swept up just the same so you must get them on time.
Also a great tip for Smackdown is to take Trish Stratus and Stacy Kiebler.
Despite not having a title, Trish and Stacy will bring a constant three star
match for you in an under card spot. Once their feud gets thumbs down, simply
don’t have them fight for a week and put them in another match the next week,
it’s like real wrestling! Once you have sixteen or so people drafted, end it
and begin GM mode. You will now have the choice to either assign your titles,
or keep them vacant, I will assume (and recommend) you keep them empty.

Options (TNA2)
/Schedule\ The big option, this is where you will go to your current match
card, and set up any matches and fueds that will happen this week. 
/E-Mail\ Where you will hear from Tazz and Doctor James Andrews about the
current ongoing for your brand. All minor and major injuries will be documented
here, so you check it often.
/Roster\ Where you can check all things related to your super stars, six sub

View Roster: Where you can check the current Morale, popularity, Fatigue,
contract status, and current injury status for any of your wrestler. If a
morale is anything but happy click on the wrestler and move right once to see
what the problem is. He will most likely be upset about his loosing streak, if
so play as him and win a match. If he wants a title shot give him one. And if
he wants a new deal, click on his contract and add five weeks to it. If the
Fatigue meter is high, rest the wrestler with only single or tag matches until
it goes down

Current Champions: Where you can see who holds the current belts. Is a champion
is injured for more then five weeks, you can vacate the title here as well.

Rivalry: Where you can view your current ongoing rivalry. To start a rivalry,
make a singles match between the two. To keep the rivalry going you must keep
them both in the same match every week. The number of thumbs is how good the
Rivalry is. 1 is good, 2 is great, and 3 is excellent and should be ended with
a big pay off match. Thumbs down means the feud is boring and should be ended.

Propose Trade. Here you can trade your superstars with the other brands. The
CPU will never offer trades and won’t except yours unless it favors them so you
may not want to bother with this.

Free Agency: Almost always useless, but vocationally your opponent will drop
someone usefull and you will be able to swipe them from here. This is also
where you can enter both legends and your CAW by pressing start and turning
them on. They will be there, ready to draft next week.

Customize Attributes: Where you can add stats to your CAW. No idea why it’s 
/Reports\ Where you can see ratings (in stars) of all the previous shows and
PPV five sub categories

PPV Results: Shows ratings for all the matches on the last PPV card.

Smackdown Results: Shows ratings for all the matches on the last SD card.

Raw Results: A Giant donkey dances on the sc...I mean shows ratings for all the
matches on the lst RAW card.

Fan support: A graph that shows the ratings each week for each show. Raw is

(Coming Soon!)

Week by Week: For those looking for a week by week guide to follow, I will
write it out, for at least the first ten weeks or so.

If this is your first week, you should spend it making all of your fueds. Put
your two most popular wrestlers in a singles match in the main event. Likewise
put your third and fourth stars in a singles match in match 5 but in this one,
press right while there match is highlighted to make it for the
Intercontinental championship. Continue doing this down the line, making one of
the matches for the cruiser weight or women’s championship. If you have extra
people, feel free to turn match three or so into a battle royal and throw them
all in. Now play, watch, or sim whatever you like and go to week two.
Week Two: You should have four or five feuds going and that’s great. Keep the
matches coming; don’t be afraid to mix it up. Feel free to make tag and every
other kind of match, as long as the two stars are in the same match. Even if
there on the same team it doesn’t matter. Keep all the fueds going like this
and maybe start another if you like. 
Week Three: You should be noticing about now that the Computer is whipping you,
get used to it. Out of the 52 week rotation, I lost 47 of them. Just do you
best to keep the losses under 100,000 and you should be fine. “But Bobeta” you
say, “How will I ever win then?” Well the answer is in your many PPV. For some
reason the other brand loves to put there crappy 25 popularity guys in their
PPV making the even much worse. You should not do that however thus getting
huge returns upwards of over a million per PPV. Like the last weeks keep the
feuds going
(Coming Soon!

Challenges (BCB)

While Challenges are not considered a main feature of the game, there are
several perks to doing so. They are a great way to obtain WWE buck as tons of
money is awarded for completing them. Also, with every set completed come
several new features. These include things like the Legends cage, and the Junk
Yard Dog. But in the end, these challenges are simply a great way to get ten
more hours out of the games, and gain a lot of experience from doing so. That
should be your main reason for doing them. 
/Amateur challenges\ (BCB1)
These challenges are worth $1000 each and supposedly have an easy difficulty,
most of them are pretty dull, but some may spark your interest.
Challenge 1. Reverse 10 strikes
Any match
Any Arena

An easy challenge for you to start with that I recommend be completed in the
same match as you complete challenge 2. To reverse a strike, press the L2
button when the enemy attempts to punch you, but before contact is made. It
successful, you character should grab the enemies’ fist, leaving them stunned
and open to attack. If you’re having a rough time, try punching as they seem to
follow your strikes with their own more often then not. Likewise, using a
technical expert like Angle makes this challenge much easier. Reverse ten, and
then finish the match to complete the challenge.
Challenge 2. Reverse 10 grapples 
Any match 
Any Arena

While still easy, reversing ten grapples is a bit more difficult to do then
challenge one as the CPU seems to use grapple moves less then he uses striking
moves, making them harder to catch. Still, like the above, wait for your
opponent to make a grapple attempt, and before he can connect press R2. If
successful, your character should do any number of reversal moves and put your
opponent in a daze. Learning to reverse moves is very important for first time
players. Once Superstar and Legend challenges are reached, knowing how to
reverse moves is essential for victory.
Challenge 3. Complete three double team moves in a match. 
Any tag match (Normal tag recommended, no tornado tag)
Any Arena

At first this may seem a bit difficult but it is actually quite simple. To do a
double team move first strong Irish whip your opponent into the turn buckle
where your tag partner waits. (Hold Triangle + Circle + direction you want them
to go) Keep doing this until your opponent hits the turn buckle dead on and
sticks to it. When this happens, Quickly move to near where your partner is and
press any of the four directions + Circle to deliver a (not so much)
devastating attack which will have you and your partner performing a different
tag move depending on the direction pressed.  Since your partner is very
unlikely to do a tag move, hold Square to get yourself tagged back in, rinse
and repeat two more times to finish the challenge. 
(Note) rising star challenge 1 (five tags in one match) should also be
completed in this match.
Challenge 4. Perform three finishers.
Any match 
Any Arena

Really a lot easier then expected. Simply pick someone you are confident with,
has a high charisma bar, and who’s finisher hits often, (basically don’t use
Rob Van Damn) To fill your finisher meter use high impact moves followed by
taunting and do your best to keep the CPU from getting too many attacks in as
you need to last long enough to land three finishers. By the third finisher
your opponent should be in a perfect pinning predicament. Pin him and complete
this challenge.
Challenge 5. Steal a Taunt
Any Match
Any Arena

You must be a clean or good guy wrestler to complete this challenge which is
why I couldn’t get it for the longest time using my Heel CAW. The
actual challenge is really quite easy. To start, gain and store a single
finisher. To actually steal the taunt, hold L1 and move the right control stick
this is usually used for your own taunts. If you did it correctly, You not do
your own taunt, but instead the taunt of your opponent. Because the taunts can
take a little
while and they must finish before the challenge is complete, make sure your
opponent is really down for a while before taunting.
Challenge 6. Steal a finisher
Any match
Any Arena

Yet another mostly simple challenge, like challenge 5 you must be a clean
wrestler and gain and store a finisher. You then must fill your bar again so
you have a stored finisher and a blinking finisher bar. To steal a finish, hold
down L2 and then press L1 whenever you would do a finisher normally. Something
to remember when picking your opponent for this match is that you must be in
certain situations (like both of you against the turnbuckle) to land the
finisher. To make things easier chooses a character that you know has a ground
or grapple finisher that can be easily applied. (Basically, don’t use Rob Van 
Challenge 7. Perform five diving attacks to the outside
Any match
Any Arena

Easier then expected. This challenge is made easier by the fact that you don’t
have to land attacks while your opponent is lying on the ground. Even if your
opponent stands up once you jump, and you only manage to clip his leg, it is
still counted, any way, it is beneficial to use someone who can land top robe
moves and get back to the turnbuckle to deliver another before your opponent
can get back up. (Basically, Use Rob Van Dam) This match can and probably
should be done with other challenges as it really isn’t that big or difficult.
Challenge 8. Destroy the Commentators
Any Match 
Any Arena

While I write all of challenges assuming that you are using the single no
manager match type, certain challenges like this are highly recommended to be
done in a hardcore, or TLC match. In this case, the lack of a very annoying ten
count makes the match quite a bit easier. To complete this small challenge pick
the smack down arena as Its announce tables are very close. In the challenge,
you must put your opponent not on but through both of the black tables to the
right side of the ring. Start by either Irish whipping your opponent onto the
tables yourself, or if there is no counting out climb the table by pressing
Triangle + the direction of the table to climb upon it. Then taunt until your
opponent follows. With both of you standing on the table, quickly strong
grapple them and do some sort of bomb like maneuver. If the table does not
brake, try different moves until one works. Proceed to break the other table
and I just wrote a really long write up for a very simple challenge.
Challenge 9. Perform a possum pin
Any match
Any Arena

This is a fun little feature that has won me quite a few close matches against
my friends. Start by gaining and storing a finisher right away. Now hold down
the circle button. Allow your opponent to do his worst to you before sending
you to the mat. Remember to not let go of Circle at any time. Now here’s the
tricky part. You must wait until your opponent attempts to either strike or
grapple you, and successfully counter the attack by pressing L2 if it is a
strike, and R2 if it a grapple. If you are successful, a cut scene should play
of you striking upwards, and roll your opponent into a very difficult to
escape, roll up pin. If you are not successful, your stored finisher will be
removed, and you will have to store another one and try again. Patience is key
here as you only need to land the move one time to complete the challenge.
Challenge 10. Reverse a Finisher
Any Match
Any Arena

I don’t know about you, but this seems a lot harder then last years. Either way
this challenge is very doable and shouldn’t be too difficult. To reverse a
finisher you must press R2 + L2 when your opponent uses his finisher, but
before contact is made. The window of escape is very small so several attempts
may be necessary. If you really find yourself having trouble, use someone with
a high Technical skill like Benoit or Kurt Angle against an opponent that has a
finisher that can only be done when you are groggy and standing. (Triple H’s
Pedigree for example) When Trips or whoever has a finisher allow him to grapple
you without resistance and when you become dazed, quickly know what to do and
make the reverse.
Challenge 11. Perform a Super Dirty Move
Any Match
Any Arena

Ahh super dirty moves. A true fan favorite in SD 04, worthless gimmick attack
in 05. Either way selected a dirty or heel character for this match as they are
the only ones who can do said move. Like all special tactics begin by storing a
finisher and getting your bad flashing so you have two finishers. Daze your
opponent and Hold L2 before pressing L1 like a normal finisher. If
successful...well you’ll know it when you see it. If not, try, try again. 
 Challenge 12. Kick out of a possum pin
Any Match
Any Arena

O.K. This match is really annoying in the fact that you must rely on the
Computer performing a possum pin (see challenge 9) on you. Considering this
move is an advanced move and the computer is any idiot, feel free to use two
players to make this challenge MUCH easier. When using two controllers simply
let player two gain a stored finisher and execute a possum pin on player one.
While player two does not press any buttons, player one presses them madly and
escapes the pin, easily winning the challenge. But if you really want to get
them all the hard way there are a few things you can do. First, and foremost,
let your opponent get a stored finisher. No stored finisher means no chance of
your opponent getting a possum pin. Second, use many power moves that leave
your opponent on the mat for a while. Walk away from the opponent. If he rises,
hit him with another power move. If after ten second he is still go ahead and
try to strike him. One of three things will happen. He may just miss and lose
his finisher. (This sucks.) He may succeed with the possum pin and actually get
the three count meaning no challenge victory (This also sucks) or you may beat
the odds and beat the hardest challenge in the game thus far.
Challenge 13. Interrupt a stolen taunt
Any Match
Any Arena

Welcome to the new hardest challenge in the game so far. If you used a second
controller to do the last challenge then don’t bother taking it out as you will
be using it again in this challenge as well. Make player two a face character
and have him store a finisher. Have player two perform a stolen taunt (see
challenge five), quickly, as player one, punch player two before he can finish
his taunt and complete the challenge. Now, if you are hardcore, and I mean
REALLY hardcore then this challenge can be done against the computer I suppose.
I personally have never seen the computer do this in over thirty hours of
matches but I know a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy who said he
completed this challenge. The only advice I can give you is to (of course) let
your opponent stores his finisher so the taunt can be done. Besides
that...seriously, just cheat and pretend you didn’t.
(Note) I have heard on the boards that by taunting outside the ring with your
opponent inside will result in him doing said Stolen Taunt. I have not tested
this, but I suppose it is more then worth a shot.
Challenge 14. Throw 10 opponents from the Royal Rumble.
30 man Royal Rumble
Royal Rumble Arena

An important note about this challenge is that your opponents must be thrown
over the top rope, as apposed to knock off using the Rumble meter (which is
terrible by the way). I very highly recommend The Big Show. In fact, without
him or another super heavy weight this challenge is near impossible. To
complete this easy challenge more easily, substitute the heavyweights like
Batista or John Cena, as Show can’t throw them. Instead replace them with
cruisers or wimpy CAW. Selected you to be the #1 entrant and begin the match.
Unlike in SD 04 you no longer have to big boot an opponent to make them dazed
long enough to carry. Instead by doing a high power grapple, the circle to put
your opponent on his feet while still dazed. Quickly followed by Circle + up
will have Big Show pick up the unfortunate fool and hold him above his head.
Next simply walk to the nearest ropes and toss the poor sucker. Do so ten
times, win the rumble or not. And move on the last amateur challenge.
(Note) There seems to be a glitch where the game won’t register this challenge
being completed. This happened to me, but after resetting and doing the
challenge again it was there. It’s a moderately easy challenge anyway so no big
Challenge 15. Break four weapons
Any Match
Any Arena

Just do this in a TLC or Hardcore match. Grab a chair from the ring; smash your
opponent silly four times. Get a new one and smack some more. This is a fun
little challenge and therefore gets a fun little write-up.

Completion of all fifteen challenges wins you the Wrestlemania-21 Arena and a
sexy new trophy for your case.
/Rising Star Challenge\ (BCB2)

These Challenges are worth $1500 each and are supposedly
normal in difficulty. These are a lot more fun to play the Amateur challenges
and besides that damned spank challenge are seemingly easier the amateur
challenges. Also note the challenges will be numbered up to 60 instead of 15
for easier reference to both you and me.
Challenge 16. Make 5 tags in one match
Any tag match (no tornado tag)
Any Arena

Should already be completed after doing challenge 3 (strange they put this one
afterwards isn’t it?) Any way if you haven’t completed this for any reason Make
a tag, make five tags, and then win the match. There, that was easy.
Challenge 17. Win a FYF (Fulfill your Fantasy) Match with your clothes intact.
Fulfill your Fantasy Match
Summer Slam Arena

This is a very simple challenge that no one will ever use an FAQ for, yet I
have to make a write up for it in order to be complete. Besides that there
really aren’t many tips to this except to play the match a couple times until
you really have the mode down, and then go for the kill. Use the pillow for the
cheap win, or disrobe your opponent which is a bit more difficult.
Challenge 18. Receive two finishers, and still win the match.
Any Match
Any Arena

This match is exactly as hard as you want it to be. If you want to take the
easy way out (besides using a second controller of course) making the match
type a buried alive match makes the challenge much easier because you can take
two finishers in the ring, and then proceed to destroy your opponent with the
shovel. Likewise, using a super strong character like The Big Show, against
Cruisers or anyone with low strength should have you being able to kick out
despite both finishers. But if you’re looking to do it the real way, playing
against Kurt Angle is your best bet. While Kurt has high stats all around, his
only finisher is the submission maneuver The Ankle Lock (Why in gods name won’t
they give him the Angle Slam?) Despite the fact that it is a submission and
therefore not a real finisher in the purest sense, it is still counted allowing
you to pick up the victory without too much trouble on your part.
Challenge 19. Win without any of your own body parts in yellow or worse
Any Match
Any Arena

If by some miracle chance you have done all the challenges in order and you
still have this challenge available then don’t sweat because this challenge
isn’t hard at all. Just pick a character you dominate with, against whoever you
want and dominate the match the best you can. If have completed all challenges
up to this point then this should be no problem.
Challenge 20. Complete three successful spanks in a row in a FYF Divas Match
FYF Divas Match
Summer Slam Match

Yukes fails miserably at making in-game mini games and we all pay the price
because of this. This match isn’t difficult in that you have to be very good 
at the game to beat it. It is difficult in that the spank system is so
infuriatingly stupid, that it seems that luck is much more important in this
then anything. First of all use a second controller. There’s no need for pride
here, this challenge sucks and the quicker the quicker it is finished the
better. To start, Irish whip (regular, not strong) your opponent into the bed
until they are stunned by it. Press Circle + Down next to them to start the
spank mini-game. The point of this game is to use the right control stick to
raise the spank bar into the top colored part and then bring it back down to
spank, while this sounds simple on paper, this system is incredibly difficult
to use, especially on the second and third spanks. If you choose to be noble
and face the computer then the screen will shaking during this time making it
even more frustrating. Seriously, cheat this one last time and I’ll never
mention it again, promise.
Challenge 21. Win an Iron Man Match by Five or more points
Iron Man Match
Any Arena

I assume any time period will work here so choose whatever you feel like. As
for my broken record advice use a character that (you guessed it) are familiar
with and someone who I highly recommend can successfully use a submission move
as it is an excellent way to rack up points. Likewise while you don’t have to
pick a wuss to face if don’t want, however I can’t really recommend facing Bret
Hart or Chris Benoit unless you really want a challenge (but by the fact your
reading an FAQ, I assume you don’t.) Otherwise treat this like any other match.
Get your opponent into red then start locking on submissions and finishing
moves and watch the points fly in. If you fall too far behind, just reset.
Nothing sucks more then losing it at the last second...except that spank
challenge of course
Challenge 22. Win a match without using any finishing moves
Any Match
Any Arena

If this challenge isn’t completed yet, then I have to ask why in the world you
decide to start your challenge hunt on number 22. Either way this isn’t tough
at all. Just use a strong character and use a bunch of power moves to get the
win. But you’ve already beaten this so it doesn’t matter.
Challenge 23. Win a match without storing a finisher
Any Match
Any Arena

You have to wonder why these challenges are here and doing tag team moves and
eliminating ten in the Royal Rumble are in Amateur but that’s not important.
You should probably get this along with challenge 22 (or in about 5 other
challenges) so worry about it even less then you did. (Note) You can use a
finisher and get this; you just have to use the finisher when it is flashing
Challenge 24. Land a casket finisher in a Buried Alive Match
Buried Alive Match
Survivor Series Match

Before you do anything, go ahead and play this match a couple times normally
until you are comfortable with it, and more importantly can knock your opponent
into the casket by strong Irish Whipping him into the middle part, or until he
falls down. This game has some seriously lousy hit detection, making this
harder then it has to be. A hint to do this is to drag your opponent, (hold
Circle + where you want to go) until you are right in front of the coffin. Once
you are ready, start a match against however you like, and head strait out to
the burial area. Quickly grab the shovel as it is going to be your new best
friend. Use the shovel to gain a finisher and then store. Get a second finisher
flashing and then go for the Irish whip into the casket. If you miss two or
more times your special will likely disappear. Simply grab the shovel and get
it flashing again. If you do manage to get him against the coffin, and have
both finishers in tact, run at him and quickly press L1. Then sit back and
enjoy one of the more badass moments in the game.
Challenge 25. Throw someone off the Cell, and then win the match.
Hell in a Cell Match
Any Arena

Man I love these matches. This is a mostly easy challenge to enjoy. To start,
pick a wrestler who has a move set you are confident and has a bomb or slam
type move that can be applied easily. Start the match. Break down the door
(Didn’t Yukes they say they were going to fix this?) Climb to the top of the
cage and move to the middle. When your opponent follows, grapple and execute a
slam move on top of one of the two middle panels. If the panel cracks from the
impact, just do the same move on the same panel, and it should give way
completing the challenge. If not, try getting closer to the middle of the
panels or try a different move.  Also note that you must also win the match to
complete the challenge. But considering a ride through the cage deals a ton of
damage, this shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
Challenge 26. Beat the number one score (30) in a Slobber Knocker Match
Slobber Knocker Match
Any Arena

Seriously, who plays ever plays this match except to do this challenge? For
some reason the timer is no longer here, and it is simply thirty points through
Pinfall, submission, or KO before you are pinned to get the win. Unfortunately,
the new finisher system makes this match very difficult as you can no longer
exploit it to get twenty second knock out as before. But that doesn’t mean you
can’t be cheap! Using Triple H I managed to rack up thirty pin falls in under
ten abusing his spine buster move. (Circle + left the Circle + right) Using
this move I pinned my opponent 25 times out of 30. If he escapes just land the
move again and he will surely be down. If cheating is less your thing then pick
a strong and durable character your familiar with and do your best to avoid any
possible damage. Save your Finishers for guys like Batista or HHH who can
really do a lot of damage. In the end however, patience is key as sometimes you
just need to play until none of the last 10 guys are able to land their
finisher and pin you. This is one of the hardest challenges up to now so don’t
be frustrated if it takes a few tries.
Challenge 27. Complete a match without you or your opponent getting a rope 
Any Match (Must be a match with rope breaks)

Hooray for Challenges you’ve already beaten! If not, play the match like any
other match, but before going for any pin drag your opponent so they can’t, you
know get a rope break. Seriously though if you’re starting challenge mode on
this challenge in particular then there may be something very wrong with you.
Challenge 28. Win a match without leaving the ring
Any Match (Ring out must be on)

Do you know there isn’t a single Last man standing challenge in the entire
game? Yukes could have easily put that challenge here but no. They got lazy and
in result we get yet another already done challenge. Either way wins a match as
you will with (shocker) leaving the ring. This also applies to using the top
rope so don’t do that either. (Basically don’t use Rob Van Dam)
Challenge 29. Win a 10 man Royal Rumble as the #1 entrant
10 man Royal Rumble
Royal Rumble Arena

Now why can’t all the challenges be interesting like this one? Obviously you
can take the noble route and use a character you are comfortable with and stay
near the middle of the ring so as not to be tossed over yourself while going in
for the kill whenever you get an opportunity. But why do that when there are
game flaws to exploit?! By simply climbing any of the turn buckles, you will
become impossible to be tossed out as your opponents don’t seem to know how to
knock you off in this mode. After a minute or so you may fall off the turn
buckle, simply climb it again before anyone can catch you. Wait on the
turnbuckle until there is only one challenger left and then hop on in and
finish him off. Naturally using Show or Andre and exploiting there throw out
Moves are also an option if you wish to pursue that Route. 
Challenge 30. Reverse the casket door from closing
Buried Alive Match
Survivor Series Arena

For this challenge pick a character with a high technical skill, and likewise
an opponent with low technical skill (How I miss using Divas in all these
challenges.) Immediately head out to the coffin are and let your opponent toss
you into the coffin, likewise give no resistance to the first button mashing
video game. If you some how escape any way, let the CPU beat you up some more
and then get thrown in. Once you loose the first mini game the real part of the
challenge begins. Much like the sleeper hold mini game that you’ve only seen
like twice and have no idea hop to escape which is fine because you can’t
anyway You will see a bar with a blue line at the bottom, Your job is to press
either R2 or L2 when the blue ball moves inside the blue line. If successful
you should block the coffin with your hand in typical WWE style. The simply
throw your opponent into the coffin and win the match. If you’re not
successful, well the rematch option is right there.  

Congratulation on reaching the half way point for challenge mode, for all your
hard work you are rewarded with the ECW One Night Stand Arena, a new trophy,
and best of all Superstar Challenges are now unlocked.
/Super Star Challenges\ (BCB3)
Welcome to the third set of challenges and my personal favorite set. No longer
will you be doing things like reversing grapples, and breaking taunts, but
instead rewriting history in some of WWE’s greatest matches. Before you start,
set your match difficulty to hard as it is necessary now. These matches are
worth $2,000 each. Huge note. With these challenges comes the quick start
feature. Simply press start while highlighting the challenge you want to have
all the option predetermined for you. Isn’t that nice?
Challenge 31. (With Stacy Kiebler) Defeat Trish Stratus in a FYF match.
Fulfill Your Fantasy match
Summer Slam Arena

God FYF matches are stupid. Because spanking is impossible, the two ways to go
at this are to fill your win bar by smacking Trish with the pillows, or
disrobing her by pressing Circle + Down whenever your opponent is down or
dazed. Winning by pillow is easier so I recommend that. Complete the match and
be happy that you never have to play another FYF match again as long as you
live. Also note the extreme jump in difficulty in this match. Welcome to hard
mode where your moves are reversed all. The dam. Time.
Challenge 32. (As Kurt Angle) Defeat Shawn Michaels in a match
Single No manager
WM 21 Arena

Note that you must be in the WM 21 arena to complete this challenge. This match
will likely be one of the toughest you have faced thus far. Michaels is very
strong in this game, and you may find it quite difficult to get the pin. A much
smarter idea is to exploit Shawn’s low submission stat by continually locking
on leg hurting moves. When Shawn is in red, lock on the Ankle lock and go for
the win. (Note) To make Shawn tap much easier, wait till the Angle Lock is
first applied and then press start and go to the options. Then change the
controller type from type A to type B. Now instead of jamming the buttons to
make Shawn tap. Rotate both joy pads as fast as you can wand watch as Shawn’s
hand slaps the mat for the win. 
Challenge 33. (As Chris Benoit) defeat HHH and Shawn Michaels
Triple Threat Match
WM 21

 Michaels is just getting screwed in these challenges isn’t he? Manually make
this match and make all three of you Face. At the ten minute mark a heel Triple
H will get himself DQ’d costing you the match that sucks. I highly recommend
playing a couple practice rounds with Benoit on an easier difficulty before
trying this match. Benoit is one of the more advanced characters to use so a
little practice is always good. In the match, don’t think that you have to be
the one to lock on the heavy damage. Instead, hang out either outside the ring,
or simply away from the action. More so proceed to taunt while HHH and Michaels
fight so you can get a finisher stored. When one character gets his body/head
in red go for the kill, eliminate the non red character by any means necessary
(I highly recommend a strong Irish Whip over the ropes) and then slap on the
cross face to your opponent. Switch the controller type to B again and rotate
as fast as your hands will go. Make him tap and you win the challenge...AFTER
Challenge 34. (As current day Hulk Hogan) Defeat Shawn Michaels (again)
Single no Manager
Summer Slam arena

Ok Brother this is how this challenge is gunna go brother. Well brother the
most important thing brother is to use and exploit Hogan’s seriously
overpowered Hulk up move brother. This move does tons of damage brother and
leaves your opponent stunned for another brother. Likewise brother Hulk Hogan’
Leg Drop of Doom is a great finisher brother. Get your opponent in red brother,
then land the drop brother, and say goodnight brother. This challenge is
actually really easy brother, which is why I didn’t really take this write up
seriously brother.
Challenge 35. (As Chris Benoit) defeat Eddie Guerrero 
Single no Manager
ECW Arena

Benoit has superior stats to Eddie especially when it comes to submission, so
us that to your advantage. Work down Eddie’s body and head with Germans and
other suplexes. When he is weakened, slap on the cross face and win the match.
Challenge 36. (As The Undertaker) defeat Kane in a buried alive Match
Buried Alive Match
Survivor Series arena 

Now this is what challenges should be. Clever matches that you want to play.
Start by wither working down Kane in the ring, or just heading strait out to
the burial site. Once there, grab the shovel and proceed to beat Kane sill with
it, because it is so hard to get the damn thing closed manually, you will want
to with the match through a coffin finisher. For advice in coffin finisher see
challenge 24. Simply substitute opponent for Kane and your character for
Taker and there you go.
Challenge 37. (As Cena) Defeat Batista 
Single no Manger
WM 21 Arena

Just a quick note that this match would SUCK as a WM main event. Neither man is
talented enough to keep the match going and it would quickly turn into boring
brawl match. But you probably already knew that. As far as this match goes,
know that Batista is very strong and can get you in the red much faster then
you can get him. Because of this do your best to avoid any and all grapple from
him, and instead deliver your own grapples and top rope moves (Make Cena Face)
until you can land an FU, Which in this game is slightly more powerful, then a
Burning Hammer, or Vertebraker. This is another not so hard challenge that if
you’re any good with the game, should come moderately easily.
Challenge 38. (As Rob Van Dam), defeat Chris Jericho, Tajiri, Benoit, Eddie
Guerrero, and Rey Mysterio in a six man Battle Royal
Six Man Battle Royal
ECW One Night Stand Arena

Dear lord this challenge is a pain! First of all, RVD pretty much has no
finisher, so don’t expect to get any help from that. The best advice I can give
is to stay away from all action going on as best you can. If being cheap is
your thing, climb to the top rope and stay there until you fall down, or the
CPU pulls you (very rare.) By doing this I was in full health to destroy
Jericho at the end. However that tactic is super cheap, and this is a fun
challenge so I recommend beating it like a man. To do this first understand
that Taking advantage of RVD’s high agility is a must in this match. Use it to
strike a foe with a quick move, and then get the heck out of there before
anyone can grapple you. By doing this, you should begin to see all of our
opponents become injured quickly, while you stay fresh. Perhaps the most
important part of the match is when there are only you and two others left. You
must get yourself out of any red you are in before it is down to the final two.
A good way to do this is hide in the corner resting, but break up any pins that
happen before your in orange. Once it comes down to you and only one opponent,
the CPU seems to kick into super awesome mode, and always seems to manage to
roll you up in the school boy for the win. If you’re in red, you’re done. If
you’re in orange, you can kick out and win the match. Although this match is
really hard, it’s a great bit of fun, and one that you shouldn’t get too upset
if you have to replay a couple times...which you probably will.
Challenge 39.
(As Triple H) Defeat Ric Flair, Randy Orton, and Batista in a Four man Hell In
a Cell Match
Hell In a Cell Match
Any Arena

Considering I use Triple H as one my normal every day characters this was
pretty easy. I simply broke through the door. Then I Led Orton up to the top
while Flair and Batista dooked it our below. I Beat him up a bunch and landed
my finisher through the cage. While things may go slightly differently for you,
this is how I recommend doing this challenge. But Matt! You day, Isn’t that
kina, sorta cheap? In my book no. Using the Cell to your advantage is hardly
cheating in my opinion. Besides, it’s not like I’m telling you to down grapple
punch your opponents head until it bleeds, and then landing your finisher. Now
THATS cheap! 

Challenge 40. (As Big Show) Defeat Paul London, and Rey Mysterio in a Handicap
One on two Handicap match
Any Arena

Hey! Paul London’s in a challenge!...and he’s jobbing, of course. This
challenge is actually a lot easier then I expected it to be. While Paul’s, and
Rey’s moves seem to not even harm you. Your high powered moves will seemingly
put them in the red after only a handful of moves. Because of this your special
meter should rise quickly. Save it, and wait for one of the two’s bodies to be
in red. Then Strong Irish Whip the other out of the ring, and land Shows big
choke slam on the poor sap. The move may very well KO your opponent right
there, but if not, pin him for the almost certain victory. If not, Rinse,
Lather, and Repeat.

Challenge 41. (As Kane) Defeat Edge (With Lita) 
Single Vs. Single W/ Manager
Vengeance Arena

What kind of crappy challenge is this? If my memory serves me correctly this
match was only slightly above average, and wasn’t even as good as the following
stretcher, or Cage matches. But Trips and Batista seem to already be busy in
the Cell so I’ll bite. There isn’t a whole lot to say here that hasn’t already
been said. Kane is actually a lot of fun to use in this game thanks to his
large arsenal or high power moves, so get you best out of them. Do your best to
stay in control until you can land you choke slam and that’s that. Oh...and
watch out for Matt Hardy near the end.
Challenge 42. (As Carlito) defeat John Cena in a Bar Room Brawl
Bar Room Brawl

Hey...Where’s Jesus? They must really be running short on feuds to have you
play a not very good one from over a year ago. Despite that, this match is very
difficult, and unfortunately not in a hard but satisfying way. It seems the
match will be completely going your way, until Cena gets you with a weapon or
something. Then hits you, then again, and again, and again. He does this until
he gains and hits you with a scorpion Death Lock esq. FU, and picks up the win.
To avoid this be cheap your self. Go to town on Cena with all the weapons you
can find, and whatever you do don’t let him get on the offensive. Just keep
smacking him around and soon enough you should be able to land your crappy
Carlito finisher (Change it to Rolling the Dice, seriously) for the win.

Challenge 43. (As Hulk Hogan, and Ric Flair) Defeat John Cena, and Randy Orton.
Normal Tag
Any Arena

Have I mentioned yet how much I hate tag matches? In both this game, and in the
real WWE. They always seem to suck when it comes to psychology or excitement.
And there just plain slow...but that’s not important, is it? As I hate Hulk
Hogan, I used Ric Flair for this match. I let Hogan go in for the first ten
minutes to soften Cena and Orton up, while I waited on the out side, Wooing it
up to raise my Finisher Meter. Once I had one I stored it and patiently for
Hogan to be completely annihilated before calling for the tag. Once in I Worked
on Cena’s Legs and back getting them both in red. Then I landed a power move on
Cena, and ran attack Orton off the Apron, before locking the Figure Four on
Cena to get the win. Your results shouldn’t be too different from mine...It’s a
tag match. What other advice can I give?

Challenge 44. (As Christian) Defeat Edge in a TLC Match
Tables Ladders and Chairs (Oh My!) Match
Any Arena

Oh Christian. We hardly knew you. TLC Matches are luckily every bit as easy as
they were in the last game. Just start the match by rolling out of the ring and
grabbing your self a weapon. Make sure to make you Heel and Edge Face so only
you profit from weapon attacks. And profit you should. Once a weapon breaks, go
back and get another one. Edge seems to go down pretty easy from weapon
attacks, so this shouldn’t be too bad. Once you get Edge in red, land your
super awesome unprettier move and win the match.

Challenge 45. (As Shawn Michaels) Defeat Triple H, Booker T, Kane, RVD, and
Chris Jericho in an Elimination Chamber Match,
Elimination Chamber Match
NYR Arena

This isn’t quite as hard as one would assume it would be. Obviously, place
yourself as either the number one, or number six entrants to give you the best
chance of winning. As Number one, do your best to get the pin on your opponent
as soon as possible, hopefully before a third opponent is released. To do this
abuse the glass chamber doors and steel arena to your full advantage by Strong
Irish Whipping your opponent into them as often as possible. If a third is
released, do your best to stay with your opponent. But know to retreat if you
are overwhelmed. Likewise, if entering as the sixth entrant. Use your freshness
to your advantage by doing everything in your power not to get hurt. The CPU in
this game is unlike DOR’s in that free for all actually are such, as apposed
to handicapped matches, where your opponent can pin each other on accident.
Because of this, unless you make yourself obvious, the Computer will likely not
choose you as a target or at least until there are only two or three left. When
there are only one or two opponents left in the ring. Go ahead and unleash on
them to pick up the last Star challenge win.

With that...YOUR 75% WINNAR! Not to mention your will recieve the legends cage
and the WM 9 Arena (Didn’t WM 9 kind of really suck?) You will also recieve Ted
/Legends Challenges\ (BCB4)
Like the Super star Challenges, these matches will have you repeating famous
WWE match, in arenas that they did not actually take place. The difficulty for
these matches must be set to Legend difficulty, making all of these a huge pain
to do. However, if you can do all of them without cracking and cheating, you
will be a better gamer because of it.
Challenge 46. (As Shawn Michaels) Defeat Bret Hart in an Iron Man Match
Iron Man Match
WM 9 Arena

The first thing you should notice here is how freaking cheap Legend mode is.
Seemingly everything you throw will be reversed...get used to it. Because
making Bret submit is almost impossible, you will have to rely on your finisher
to win this match. Self make this Match, and put you face, and Bret Heel. In
the match, launch many top rope moves to quickly raise your special meter. When
you get a finisher, unleash it and repeat. You should eventually find Bret
getting red, along with your self. Be careful here, and do your best to land
moves for pins, without getting yourself caught instead. This match should test
everything you have learned so far, and some luck could never hurt.
Challenge 47. (As SCSA) Defeat the Rock in a No DQ match
Normal (No DQ)
WM 17 Arena

No DQ makes me a happy boy. Instead of what would be a truly hard fought match
between you and the Rock. All you have to do is head outside of the ring and
grab a weapon. Then proceed to go rattle snake all over the Rock. Of course, if
you don’t want use weapons. Keep Rock on the mat so he can’t build up his
special meter. Austin has some pretty sweet stats in this game so you should
win moderately easily either way. 
Challenge 48. (As 80’s Hulk Hogan) Defeat Andre the Giant
Single No Manager
WM 9 Arena

Hmm, I didn’t know this match happened in 1993! Seriously, how hard would it
have been to put in a WM 3 Arena or something? Most of these matches just don’t
have the impact they should, fighting in a toga arena. But that has nothing to
do with this challenge. Anyway, all time lapses aside know that what Hogan
lacks in size on Andre. He has highly superior stats which should make this not
too bad. As Hogan, make it a note to either keep Andre on the mat, or find a
grapple move that is effective, and doesn’t involve picking Andre up. Abuse
this one move to bring the big man down. Land the Leg drop of Doom (sucks) and
win the match.
Challenge 49. (As the Rock) Defeat Current day Hogan
Single No Manager
WM 21 Arena

How does Rock keep getting into these games? He never shows up. His voice isn’t
in the game, and I just don’t think too many people would notice or care if he
just wasn’t in it. Despite that, this match is pretty much like all the other
singles challenge that are in this game. Just know at least a few moves with
Rocky, and destroy Hogan with your mostly superior stats. And please tell me
which you think is a stupider finisher, the Rock Bottom or the Leg Drop.
Challenge 50. (As Bret Hart) Defeat SCSA in a Submission Match
Submission Match
WM 9 Arena

Good thing Austin passed out eight years ago, or this challenge would be quite
a bit more difficult. Luckily, you get to use Bret Hart with a massively
superior submission stat. Go to work on any part of Austin’s body (I recommend
his legs). Keeping beating on Austin, then slap in the submission. But you
already knew all of this didn’t you?
Challenge 51. (As Ted Dibiase) defeat 80’s Hogan with manager Jimmy Hart
Single Vs Single w/ Manager
WM 9 Arena

Hey! They got a time period right! Because you have very likely never used Ted
Before this match, you may end up plating this match a couple times. Slowing
you should be able to keep Hogan down and keep your specials coming. Lock in
the Million Dollar Dream Defeat 80’s Hogan and party like its 1993 which it
actually is.
Challenge 52. (As The Undertaker) Defeat Mankind in a HIAC Match
Hell in a Cell Match
Any Arena

Like any other hardcore based specialty match in this game, this one is pretty
easy. Lead Mankind up to the top of the Cell. Then somehow throw him off it.
(100 Bonus points if he hits the table) Let him get back up and put him through
it. By this time Foley should be pretty weak and you should be unharmed. Work
him down until It’s tombstone time. Then you auto pin him so I don’t have to
tell you to win the match.
Challenge 53. (As Current Day Hulk Hogan) Defeat Hollywood Hogan
Single No DQ
Any Arena 

Just a quick note. I don’t think I would ever call any Hogan good. He was
always pretty much evil in my book. First, despite that, thanks to that lovely
No DQ stipulation, It’s Weapon time! Grab a chair and go to work on evil
Hogan. Beat him silly till he is in red. Then go back in the ring and launch
off a couple Arial moves. Get that finisher. Drop the Leg Drop. And once again
know that good always triumphs over evil
Challenge 54. (As JBL) Defeat Ted DiBiase in a ladder Match
Ladder Match
Any Arena

This is a really fun match. Both men have equal speeds so it is unlikely you
will get screwed out of the belt. The best advice and can give is to get Ted
knocked out side the ring. The best way to do this seems to be to knock Ted
senseless till he is in red. Then get and store a finisher. Set up the ladder
where it needs to be and then head out side the ring. Land the Power Bomb on
Ted on the ramp and then run back to the ladder. Get that belt and hope you
made it in time. Because there are a lot of random factors in the game, this
may take one time. Or it may take ten. Don’t get too frustrated.
Challenge 55. (As Angle and 80’s Hulk Hogan) Defeat Muhammad Hassan and Daivri
Tag team match
Any Arena

Both of your guys have massively superior stats, so this shouldn’t be so hard.
Choose Angle, because Hogan sucks to play as. Let Hogan go in there first to do
some damage. And then when he is in the red, put your hand out for a tag. Do
your best to keep Divari in the ring while you work on his legs the best you
can. Get them into red and lock in the Ankle Lock. For some reason, the CPU
doesn’t really seem to break up submissions in tag matches, and this is good
news for you. Angle has almost double the submission stat of Daivari, so an
Angle Lock in red should equal a win quite quickly.
Challenege 56. (As The Big Show) defeat Andre the Giant
Any Arena

Considering last year had you as Rey Mysterio in this match. This years version
is quite a bit easier. TBS and Andre are similar in almost every way, so this
match isn’t much different then any other singles match you have played. Work
the power moves, and keep Andre to the mat. Because both of you are so strong,
it will only take a few moves to get one another in Red. Once Andre’s chest or
Head is flashing red, land the Choke slam and win the match.
Challenege 57. (As William Regal) defeat British Bulldog in a First Blood Match
First Blood Match
Any Arena

As a huge Regal mark, I loved this match. Like all other First Blood Matches,
head out of the ring and grab your self a chair. Go crazy on Bulldogs head
while doing your best to avoid his attacks. These matches are never that hard
so there isn’t a whole lot more I can say about it. Just note that Regal seems
to be broken open really easy in this match, so really try not to get hit with
a chair.
Challenge 58. (As Eugene) Defeat Junkyard Dog in an Iron Man Match
Iron Man Match
Any Arena

What kind of weird challenge is this? I think they just wanted to put Junkyard
and Eugene in a match, so they put them together. Meanwhile, my main man
Shelton Benjamin gets screwed for the second year in a row. Luckily you get
Eugene in this match who has vastly superior stats and some pretty powerful
moves. In broken record style keep JYD on defense while keeping you fresh. When
you can land the Eugene Stunner, do so. You should quickly find yourself
racking up pin falls. In a fifteen minute match I won 12-4 so this isn’t too 
Challenge 59. (As Christ Benoit) Defeat Bret Hard in a Cage Match
Cage Match
Any Arena

A seriously awesome match if you play it correctly. You can simply escape out
the door and win within twenty seconds but that would be lame. Instead you
should certainly win the match by pinning your opponent, or escaping the cage.
Winning by Cross face is also possible but I’ve never been able to do it.
Instead, use and abuse Benoits many suplexes and slams that do a ton of damage
and keep Hart on the mat. When Benoit is weak, land a bridge pin (Circle + up
then Circle + down) If Bret is in red, this should finish him off. If not, keep
trying or land a high impact suplex then make a run for a cage. It’s very
likely that you won’t escape the cage, but occasionally Bret will miss when
trying to knock you down and you will be able to escape. Overall one of my
favorite challenges and should have been number 60 as apposed to...
Challenge 60. (As John Cena) Defeat The Rock in a TLC Match
TLC Match
Any Arena

I don’t like Cena, and I don’t like Rock. You can imagine how I was less then
thrilled while playing this match. Still, the TLC stipulation is one of my
favorites so that saved this match quite a bit. Like all hardcore matches, head
on out of the ring and grab your favorite weapon of choice. Proceed to bash Mr.
Rock with it until he is in red. Do the wavy hand thing and land the taking a
shot gun blast straight to the head Esq. FU. And win this terribly anti
climactic final match.
And just like that. You will receive your Final Challenge trophy and an
alternate outfit for SCSA. You also acquire the Million Dollar, and Hardcore
belts. Time to get the rest of those trophies

Trophies (WII)

Like challenges, trophies are not very important in completing the game.
However having them does make you seem like a better player, and they look
cool. Likewise, each trophy unlocks things like loading screens, and items for
your club house, so there is some reward. Unlike challenges, most of these
trophies are not unlocked by doing a certain match with certain rules. Instead,
certain objectives must be completed to gain them. Because of this, trophies
are much harder to get then most challenges.
/Match based trophies\ (WII1) These trophies can be gained by playing one, or
Exhibition matches. Only one of these required true skills, the others rely on
Perseverance more then anything.
Trophy 1. Win 100 matches in all modes put together.

First of all, to see how many current wins you possess, to do this you should
check your computer in your club house. My best advice is to forget about this
for at least until you have done most if not all of the challenges and
trophies. The challenges alone should give you forty or so wins, and the
seasons are worth fifteen wins each. Still, to round things out you can simple
play some exhibition matches you enjoy and can win quickly. Or you can have a
go at GM. And play all the main events. Either way, this challenge isn’t much
of a problem so don’t worry about it. 
Note: I’ve heard a glitch about reaching 100 wins, and not getting the trophy.
If this happens fear not. Just win ten or twenty more matches and it should
show up eventually. (Gaining this trophy unlocks a couple of figurines to buy
for your crib)
Trophy 2. Win an Elimination Chamber Match on Legends difficulty against 5
other people and pin them all yourself.

Remember to set the difficulty level to Legend before attempting this. I beat
it on hard once, and I’ll just say I was less then thrilled to not get my
trophy. There are two ways to do this and I’ll break down each.
The manly way: Well, you’re going to want to be someone who you’re very good
as, and have excellent stats. A great suggestion is making your own 99 CAW with
10 Strength, endurance, and submission if you plan to make them tap. Likewise,
you’re free to choose your opponents but seriously, you’re not going to want to
pick HHH or Taker. Remember, your going to have to pin all these men, don’t let
your pride blind your judgment. Make yourself first and start the match. In
this match, your concern should be avoiding damage above all else. Start the
match by carefully working down your opponent and if you feel like risking it,
strong Irish whipping him into the glass or chain fence. Once the next man is
released. Run far, far away and let them duke it out while you taunt to raise
your special meter. From now on, it should be your point to break up any pin or
submission attempts. Likewise whenever someone falls into red, you should do
anything necessary to get to them, land a finisher and or Strong Irish whip
them into the glass cell, and get the win. Please not that I have written this
as if it is easy to do. Trust me when I say it isn’t. I attempted this a
counted twelve times on hard, and seven on Legend before I got the win on a
mostly fluke. I say if you try and fail this match more then ten times, feel
free to try the attempt below.

The not manly way: Trust me when I say I am going all out cheap here. First
stop is the CAW mode. Make any CAW look you want, but make him a diva weight.
Next go to his stats. Leave them all at three. Save him and make five copies.
(I think you know where I’m going with this.) Next have a 99 CAW and make sure
he has a 10 Submission stat. and 10 Strength stat. Make the match against (You
guessed it) those five CAW. Make your self number one and lead your first
opponent outside the ring. Strong Irish whip him into the cage and that may
very well be enough. If not, pick him up and do it again. He shouldn’t last
long. Do your best to get a pin before the next man is released, but if you 
can’t just change your pin to a submission and you should still pick up the win
as CPU’s never break up submissions. Even so, you may still lose this match
once or twice showing how damn hard this challenge really is. And so ends me
completely stepping up my A game for the trophies. (Gaining this trophy unlocks
several new roster loading screens that you can turn on in your locker room at
your T.V. Area.)
Trophy 3. Play a match in every match category in exhibition mode.

O.K. don’t even bother with this until you finish all of the challenges. Doing
so will have you competing in a majority of the required matches automatically.
Either way, It’s important to note that you only have to do one match from
every category, and all of the main events. To make things easier, I will post
a little check list that has what I believe to be the easiest/most enjoyable
match from each category

Single no Manager
Table Tornado Tag
Triple Threat
Fatal Four Way
One on Three Handicap (you as one of the three)
10 Man Royal Rumble
3 Stages of Hell (Whichever matches you like)
Parking Lot Brawl
4 Man over the Top Battle Royal
Buried Alive Match
Tornado 6 Man Tag Elimination Chamber (Why not?)
First Blood
Fulfill Your Fantasy
Hardcore Single
Single Hell in a Cell
10 Min Iron man
Triple Threat Tornado Tag Ladder (It’s easier then single)
Single Last Man Standing
Slobber Knocker
Hell in a Cell Special Referee
Single, pin and give up
Single submission
Single Table
Fatal Four Way TLC

Do those and the trophy should be yours.
(Acquiring this trophy wins you two new exercise machines... Woohoo.
Trophy 4. Win 10 Matches with a CAW

You know how to do this, just use a CAW and go through Season mode, or just win
ten exhibition matches, trophy won (Acquiring this trophy allows you to buy The
mouth of the south Jimmy Hart for 28k.)

Trophies 5-8 complete all the challenges.

Please look above to find advice on all 60 challenges in the game. As far as
miscellaneous advice goes, patience is key. If you keep trying something and it
won’t work, try going at it another way. Besides that practice and luck is the
ultimate key to success.
(Completing of the challenges unlock a bunch of stuff which is written above as
Trophy 9. Win GM mode.
I am a huge fan of GM mode, and may very well add a moderately detailed guide
for it eventually, but for now, there is already a quite good guide available
so I recommend using that. Also note that you can win this by playing with two
players. And if you manage to beat your friend fairly then I don’t think there
is any shame in getting it that way. 
(There is now)
/Season mode trophies\ (WII2)
All of these trophies are acquired by completing certain
storylines and matches in Season Mode. I decided the best way to do this would
be to give a list of the Superstar who I used to get the trophy, and a write up
if the match you will need to win to get the trophy.
Trophy 10. Win the Bar Room Brawl Match in the Legends tour Storyline
Either Brand Story Line
I used JBL

The Legends Tour storyline was the first storyline I was shown in the Smack
down storyline, before I even knew about the trophies. So imagine my surprise
when I decide to challenge Austin to the First Blood, and look for Foley before
the show (What you should do) I was then entered into a match which Mick Foley
in a Barroom Brawl. This match is 10 times easier then the challenge mode match
against John Cena. JBL has an excellent hardcore stat, and you should use that
to your full advantage. Get your uses out of the cue stick before strong Irish
whipping Foley into the Basketball game which does some seriously heavy damage.
Get the finisher ready and land the Powerbomb. Good fight, good night.
(Acquiring this trophy wins you the Jukebox, in which you can listen to stuff
in your Club House.)
Trophy 11. Win both Trish Status’ and Torrie Wilson’s contract in season mode
Contract one Trish on Raw
I used a CAW

I will split this up as it takes place in two separate storylines. First up is
Trish Stratus’ contract, as far as I know, you will receive this match as long
as you use any Raw wrestler besides Eugene, Regal, Edge, or Christian. (If I’m
wrong, E-mail me) as a CAW this was the second story line I received and
involved me tagging with Eugene against Edge and Christian. The story line
ended with me and Eugene, against Edge and Christian with Trish’s contract on
the line. As far as tag matches go, this wasn’t much harder then I expected it
to be. Eugene has some seriously juiced stats in this game, therefore making
this pretty easy. I let Eugene get Edge into red, then tagged in and slapped on
my CAW’s Figure Four to win it. Now finish the season up and on to Smack down.
Trophy 11 cont’
Contract two, Torrie on Smack Down
Now is it just me, or are Torries breast almost robotic looking in this game?
They almost look too perfect and kind of creepy. But that’s really off topic. I
received this as my first story line with my CAW, Mick Foley, and Kurt Angle.
The story line should start with you coming between RVD and Cena, with the
storyline cultivating in a triple threat for Torrie’s services. In this match
you will want to do your best to let the two men fight amongst themselves.
Meanwhile, you should do everything you can to raise your special meter and
stay fresh. When one guy is in red, land your finisher and strong Irish whip
the other guy out of the ring and go for the pin. If you get the pin, Torrie’s
robo-boobs and a nice new trophy are yours.
(Acquiring this trophy unlocks several diva loading screens which can be turned
on in your club house.)
Trophy 12. Win the Legends Battle Royal in the Legends tour storyline
Raw or Smack down season
I used JBL

A random match that pops up in the Legend’s tour storyline is the legends
Battle Royal between you and The Rock, Mankind, Bret Hart, SCSA, and Hulk
Hogan(Thanks to liampd for that). Strangely, this match isn’t half as difficult
as the ECW match. Likely because this is on normal which is way easier. Like 
All multi men matches, spend most of your time on the top rope hiding, or just
avoiding getting hurt. When it’s down to two, head on in and finish the job.
Then watch a hilarious cut scene where the audio is like 20 seconds behind the
video. (Acquiring this trophy wins you all of the legends loading screens.)
Trophy 13. Complete the Raw season trophy with anyone

I may, and by may I mean it is very unlikely I will make some sort of Raw and
Smack Down guide, but don’t count on it.
(Acquiring this trophy gets you 80’s Hogan and the World Heavyweight Title)

(<.< >.> I made it)
Trophy 14. Complete the Smack Down season trophy with anyone 
Pretty much the same thing I wrote for the Raw trophy.
(Acquiring this trophy gets you Hollywood Hogan and the WWE Championship)
Trophy 15. Win the Royal Rumble in Season mode
Anyone on either brand

Between the second and final storyline always comes the Royal Rumble. Before
the match, take the option for the triple threat and win it so you get the
number 30 entry. Start the match; now go eat dinner or something because you
won’t be in there for 45 minutes or so. Once you finally enter, make it a point
not to lose because if you do, you’ll need to wait another 45 minutes. When you
enter head strait up to the ring post and Road Dog it out (A cookie if you get
the reference). When it’s down to two, head on down and clean some house.
(Acquiring this trophy wins you a couple outfits, and some new collectables.)
Trophy 16. Defeat the Undertaker in a Buried Alive Match
Smack down storyline

I used JBL, after all this, It’s nice that this is the last you thing you do.
And what a thing you have to do it is. I used JBL in the Smack Down
storyline and got this storyline second. When I got the choices from Eddie
Guerrero, I chose the one against him, but I assume both will get you the story
line. After a very lengthy feud between me and Eddie it ended against Taker in
a Buried Alive match. Taker is damn near impossible to finish in this match
without using a casket finisher so that is how I recommend you do this. You
will be a face in this match so use top ropes moves inside the ring to get a
stored finisher, then work out up your second bar and go in for the kill.
Strong Irish whip him into that casket and finish him and get your last trophy.

Any thing with correct spelling. I’m not asking you to make it perfect. But
please have respect for me by typing in a way I won’t have to squint to read
and understand.

Constructive Criticism, This is my first guide, and therefore I don’t really
know what people really want to see. If there is anything you dislike or would
like see change PLEASE tell me. And don’t just flat out insult the guide.
Please tell me why you dislike it.

Compliments. I’ll admit it. This guide has taken over fifteen or twenty hours
to make and I really want people to like it. If you enjoyed the guide and want
to thank me. Just send me an E-Mail saying thanks. I know It’s cheesy but I
really will appreciate it more then you think.

Any questions you have. Seriously, if there’s something I don’t talk about, or
leave to vague in the FAQ tell me. I’ll make sure to answer your question
directly, and then update my guide with some more info as to answer your
question here as well. I’ll also add a real FAQ section soon enough, if I get
enough similar questions.

Pretty much anything you want. As long as what you have to say in any way
involves the guide, and hell even if it dosn’t Feel free to send me a note. 
/Thank Yous\ (END2)
You, the reader. Without you reading this, then this whole thing is a failure.

twenty times to raise my hits...Or E-mail me at bobeta5@gmail.com

My friend Doug for keeping me company with some Arena 
The SD VS Raw Board for getting a lot of good advice
Board 8, because Board 8 is awesome.
http://members.optusnet.com.au/astroblue/writing_guide.txt for helping me out
acidfreeze30 and his SD VS Raw guide. Not to say I copied it, but I did use it
for the last game and therefore remembered quite a few tactics that I may have
used in this guide. Just filling in a gray line by thanking him.
Yukes for making a darn fine video game
PWB for a couple jokes and fads in the guide.
