Wwwaaasssssuuuupppp!!!! | |____________________________| Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, children of all ages, the sWo proudly presents to you a work by CheatMan , The Full WWF Smackdown! Just Bring It FAQ/Move List! This work is 100% written and edited by me,CheatMan.

The Old, The New and The Ugly | |__________________________________| Ok, this is the first real part of every good FAQ, the review, once you read this all your doubts about buying the game should be out of your head and you will be moving to a store near you to get your copy of the game and then proceed to the rest of the faq. The game will be out on November 19, 2001. By the time you read this it might be out already, all this info is based on an almost finished demo released a couple of days ago so it's pretty accurate, I will update some wrong(if there are any) stuff once I get my copy, for the time enjoy. First of all, how do you know when you have just done a great video game series?? Easy, when the sequel(or in this case the 3rd part of the trilogy) has all the good old things, some good new things and less ugly things than before. On this, the third version of the Smackdown! Series, you can note a huge difference from the other two games, specially from the first one, I'll post each important point here so if you have played any of the other 2 SD!'s you can see the difference and if you haven't, well you will still want the game. - General New Gameplay Stuff: Well lotta new stuff here, like fully interactive 3D ref(you can distract him, you can kick him, you can Rock Bottom him, but if you hit him to much he'll DQ your ass) fully interactive 3D announcers(Tazz and Michael Cole, have fun) who actually give color commentary(finally) also a cool 9 guys on the screen at once, a new 60 fps animation, new animation for old moves(there are 3 different ones just for the People's Elbow, one with both elbow pads, one with one elbow pad and one with out elbow pads, check it out), 2 finisher's per guy, better graphics, new grappling system(see the Old School Stuff to see it), more fighting modes(see the Commissioner's Manual), improved CAW, wrestlers that slow down as they're getting damage, on crowd wrestling and wow, lots and lots of cool new stuff, keep reading to see. - New Career Mode: this time THQ utilizes a new version of their old career mode, you're no longer able to play it between lots of people, you still have cool storylines, you keep making friends and foes during the game and unlock stuff like wrestlers, attires and moves, all this form the old stuff. The new? Roaming Mode, what? Roaming Mode, what?(Austin makes it funnier) ok I'll explain, now you get to roam around the building before matches, talk to other stars, go see a fight and maybe help someone out and even go to WWF NY to get some drinks(no drinking, sorry) all of this before your match on a 2 minutes time limit and on a very cool first person view(like Shoot-em-alls, you know like 007, Quake and those stuff). Sometimes you do this for fun and sometimes to complete storylines like finding yourself a tag team partner. The ugly? You can't play forever, yeah it's pretty short now, you play like 3 or 4 matches, win the belt and the end, new game, but hey, noone's perfect, luckily on SD!4(if there is one) this problem will be fixed. They actually removed all the crappy stuff from old SD!'s careers like the crappy cut scenes where you see Taka arriving at the arena and the fact of having to simulate every single match on the event, now the career is only focused on you, only you, and that's the only thing you'll see. That's pretty much it, it's not a little though, read and you'll know, the game is not a redone from scratch simply 'cause it wasn't necessary it corrected all(well most of) the old mistakes that made the game not that good, and besides this is the first one for ps2 wait for the possible sequel( hell there's got to be one) and you might be looking at something unbelievable. Oh, and btw we still have no blood, but it is because of some European law that forbids blood on videogames, and since this game is gonna be released on Europe(around Nov. 16) they had to take out the blood(I think the law is from Germany or something...) but hell if you wanna see blood buy like Bloody Roar 3, this is a pro wrestling game, not a gory fighting game. This is what I think about the game: Graphics: 9 Beautiful looking, period. Cool wrestler models, cool stages, the only down point is that the crowd is still cardboard-like, but hey, who really cares! Animation: 9 The moves, the wrestlers, everything moves so freaking real! The only down point are the small mistakes on hit detection like rubbing your butt after a neck breaker. Gameplay: 10 Simply perfect. The best Gameplay ever: fast, fun, easy to learn if you have played it you know what I mean and with the new stuff's it is even better. Sound: 10 Repetitive music, and sometimes the commentaries can get a little annoying, but it is not that bad, they actually recorded real life sounds for the hitting the mat, running, and weapon hitting stuff. Replay Value: 10 One word: eternal. Lots of gimmick matches to play in, sure the career mode is not unlimited, but you can always play KOTR and stuff like that, and a pretty good CAW so you won't get tired of seeing same ol' faces, I still play SD!2 and I stopped playing SD!1 when the sequel appeared, so, you have tons and tons of years here Overall: 9.5 Not an average, just what I think, and I think it's pretty good, go buy it now and then continue reading. ============================================================================= _____________________ | | | 4. Old School Stuff | |_____________________| This part is dedicated to the basics(get it, old school, basic wrestling knowledge?) here you'll know how to, well play, after you learn this, the rest is just practice, lets begin now shall we? Basic Controls: _______________________ | | On the menus, follow on screen |Key: | instructions don't be lazy. |Triangle button: /\ | |Square Button:  | For the fights this is what you should |Circle Button: () | Know: |X button: >< | |D-pad: Directional Pad | |R# & L#: R & L buttons | - ><: This is your average action button |_______________________| it is the button you will use to pull out any kind of hits and it is the accept button for the menus. Each time you want to punch or kick someone, this is your button for using weapons and also for jumping from top ropes and that kind of stuff, think of this if you wanna hit someone, any where, on any position, press X. - : Block and Reverse button. The most important button on the game?? Maybe, after all if you can't escape a move you'll loose. Use it to get covered from your typical attack, some attacks can't be covered though, like top rope ones, also grappling moves, to escape this ones get ready to press the button at the exact time the opponent move begins, must of the moves on the game can be reversed, but some of them not(weapons and top ropes) it is pretty hard at the beginning just mash it for defense, but after a lot of practice you might be invincible(If you have played No Mercy it will be easier). - (): The most important button on the whole game! This is your grappling button, all the moves, all the grapples, from a simple DDT to a Superplex, are done with this button and a direction, for further explanation on the grappling system check Grappling Move section below. You also need this button for some special use with weapons like doing a piledriver over tables and using the mic. on the I Quit Match. - /\: Not really important, this is your running button, use to guess what? run! Either you want to get away or run for a running grapple you will need this button, you can also use it to climb turnbuckles or get into the ring, not really a big deal with this one. - L1 button: Finisher button! That's right, if you have already played a SD! You should be familiar with this, you just need to have the guy on the right position and press the button(of course you need to have at least one special, I'll get to this later), usually a Smack! sign appears below your name indicating that you are on the right position. - L2 button: Taunt, yeah that's right, taunt, nothing that big, there are a couple of useful taunts though(like the All On Fours, you can use it to do a human springboard on a double team-Hardy Boyz anyone?-). - R1 button: Lets call it interaction button. Yeah that's right, this is the button you use to pick stuff from the floor, or get to the turnbuckle, or in and out of the ring and that stuff, not really a button for the fight but it would be a good idea to be able to pick up the weapons on a hardcore match. - R2 button: Change focus, this is switch between targets. Very important during a fight with lots of enemies. You are always looking to an enemy well use this button to toggle between the enemy you want to attack, be quick though, because sometimes(must of the times?) your opponents won't give you a chance to look at them(specially on tag team matches) - D-pad: Pretty obvious right? yeah this is the button you use to move around, but also is the button you use to select the moves and strikes(see Moves section) All of this concerning the basic uses of the buttons on your controller. Now to some real gameplay basics, the thing any wrestler should know: - Striking System: same old, same old. You just press the >< button with or without a direction, each direction is a different hit. This works on every position, except when you are using a weapon, the different hits with weapons depend on the position of the enemy and stuff like that. As I said it is for every single position: running, both standing, opp. on the ground, on top rope, opp. on corner, etc. If both of you are standing you can pull out combos. This combo varies from wrestler to wrestler(like Rock's combo is 2 normal Rocky punches and one Punch Spitting on the hand stuff and Austin's combo is simply 3 Austin punches). To pull out this combo simply press >< alone three times, no directions, just the button, if done correctly once the first hit connects the other two will too and the last hit will knock the opponent down. - Grappling System: Well old SD! Fans we have a tiny variation here. SD!JBI's Grappling System is not based on the old SD! Grappling system. What? yes it is based on WWF Royal Rumble(for the DC). What? ok, the new grappling system works like this: you have now 3 levels of front grapples-Normal, Groggy and Tied Up. How to pull them off? easy, Normal grapples(the weakest ones), which are normally like hitting moves more than anything, are pulled out as usual, both man standing just press () and any direction and you get your typical little suplex. Groggy moves are pulled out after you hit the enemy with hit and he is like stunned for some secs. then you must execute the grapple, this is how you do almost every special move on the game. And finally the Tied Up grapples, new to the version, this will be the most powerful moves on your repertoire, this is done by picking the opponent up from the ground(just press the () button when opponent on the ground with out a direction-if you press a direction you'll do a submission-) and you will pick the opponent and immediately get into a typical Tied Up wrestling position for a couple of seconds then press the button. This are the most useful moves on the game, but you also have grapples from behind, the ground, turnbuckle and more, only follow the same procedure press a direction and the () button at the same time(you can actually hold the direction and press () while holding it), it works on every position(of course not on top turnbuckle since here you can only strike-yes both a missile dropkick and a moonsault are considered strikes-). To do Irish Whips press the button first and use the D-pad to aim(use the head). For some extra info you might want to check out the move list. Oh one more thing when you run toward your opponent, you won't really do a grapple you will either do a running Irish Whip(without directions) or a sort of hammer lock(with a direction), this hammer lock can be very useful because it will let you execute a finish move from the back(if you have one), this is if you run towards the front of him, if you run towards his back you'll do a bulldog-kind of attack. To do the real running attacks(like UT's running DDT) the other wrestler must be also running toward you. - Special Moves System: On WWF SD!JBI each wrestler(or at least the most of them) are able to perform 2 different special moves the way to execute them is the same just press the L1 button at the correct position when the opponent is stunned. About the positions, well you can either try to think on how the moves are done on TV or check either the Move List or the Quick Finisher Guide. For a simple example, to pull out The Rock's Rockbottom you only have to like hit the guy from the front and when he's groggy and you have a number(over 0 of course) next to the bar with your wrestler's name(you should see a small Smack! sign somewhere) then press the button and Rockbottom! And if you want to pull his second special, the People's Elbow, just press the button over the opponent's head when he's knocked down on the floor. Some wrestlers might have 2 specials move from the same position, to pick between the two press L1 either alone(one special) or with the D-pad(the other special). Oh I almost forgot, you'll notice a black bar next to your wrestler's name on the screen when you fight, can you see it?, well this is your "Special" bar, this bar will fill up while you input some damage to your opponent(you'll see a blue line inside of it) and when the bar is filled up a number appears, you normally begin with a 0 and each time you fill the bar up you go up one number, this are the amount of specials you can execute. You can set how many specials you wanna begin with and the maximum of stocked specials on a match. - Team Moves: This game has a very cool feature for team matches it is the Team Moves. Unlike other games you can pull out not only Double, but Triple Team moves! If you have played SD!2 or any THQ game for the N64 you must be familiar with this moves. The first SD! with team moves was SD!2KYR you had lots of moves but you could only pull them on one kind of match because of the way they were done(go find a SD!2 faq if you want details), now you can pull them out as long as two or three wrestlers are focused on the same wrestler and from the front like any normal move. About how to pull them out, this is how it's done: you get 8 double team moves(about 50 to choose from) and only one triple team move(there's only one of this on the game) for a total of 17 different moves per team(cool!). 4 of the double and the triple move are pulled out in the same way they were on SD!2, take the opponent to your corner and then press any direction and (). The other 4 are done like this: do a strong grapple(see above) and while on the Tied-Up position have the other wrestler to execute a move to the opponent(any direction and ()) - Reversal System: On WWF SD!JBI almost every single move can be countered, some counters can even be re-countered(specially punches) it is basically a matter of good timing and practice, just press the  button at the right time, I began mashing it, works pretty well, but after some practice you can learn how to do it anytime you want and it will make you a pretty good contender. Well I believe this is the most important things that you should know, once you know this you can feel comfortable to play the game since the rest is basically practice, I could even finish this faq here and you would still be able to play the game without almost any trouble, but I'll do a move list so you can find out the moves of your favorite wrestler and to have an idea of which moves can be used for the CAW mode. Enough for this part now, lets move along ok? ============================================================================= ______________________________ | | | 5. The Commissioner's Manual | |______________________________| This is the part where you can find all the info about the different types of matches on the game, it rules and stuff like that. Since there are like 70+ different types of matches(well not really, you'll see now) it's easy to get lost, so this is something important, specially if you're not a good fan of wrestling As soon as you start your game and you pass the Main Screen a menu will appear this is where this part takes action, I'll explain everything on each part specially rules and stuff like that, just read ok? Just one more thing to add before I begin, it's about the run-ins, they are automatic and random, some people doesn't have one(like The Rock), it depends on who are your wrestler's friends/foes, you can't control the player, unless some special stuff happens on Story Mode(never on single). And one more thing if the KO rule is on, any match(except cage, table, ladder and TLC title) can end with a KO(this happens when you perform a Finish move on a really weakened opponent) - STORY MODE: as you should imagine this is the 1-player mode of this game. Here you choose a wrestler and start following the story toward the title you want to go for and just sit back fight and enjoy. As said before there has been lots of improvements on this mode since the prequel now with the roaming mode. Here you are tied to storylines, the idea of this mode is to take a part on a WWF storyline and do your best to compete for your title, you get to decide lots of stuff here, like what to say who to convince into being your friend and more, you can even enter here form a stable and have lots of fun, nothing to say here really, think of it as the similar of a Story mode on games like Bloody Roar and that stuff, the only bad thing is that now is an 1-player only mode and that it's too damn short - EXHIBITION: basically the typical VS mode of any videogame, you against another player or the PC, you can fight for titles here and that stuff, if you have played at least one wrestlinggame you should know what this is. This are the options inside of this: - Singles: simple match between two guys, supposed to be a hand-to-hand match, it can be played with or without managers, this managers can be either CPU or human controlled and they can be select at the beginning of each match, they job is to help you win, at any cost. The rules of this match are pretty straightforward, you must defeat your opponent by either a pin, submission or by a DQ. The first 2 are very well known, the DQ only happens on some special occasions like if you beat the ref to much. - Tag: two-on-two matches. There are two ways of fighting this: Normal Tag or Tornado Tag, but can be with or without managers, but the rules are kinda different for the two kinds. Normal Tag matches are two-on-two matches with only two wrestlers inside the ring at once and their partners waiting on the apron for a tag to enter. You can get in the ring sometimes when the ref is distracted to try to help your partner out, to Tag your teammate, simply walk toward your corner and when next to him press toward him and R1, or you can also try a double team move of the corner since this move begin with a tag. Tornado Tag is usually used for hardcore stuff but it can also be used here with plain rules. In this match all four wrestlers are on the ring at once and no Tagging is needed. The winner team is the first team to score a fall, by either pin, submission or DQ on one of the other team members. On Tornado it can be any of them, but on Normal the legal wrestlers must be the ones who execute the fall(this is the ones with the tag) - Six-Man Tag: same stuff as a normal Tag match, even the modes(Tornado and Normal)only with teams of 3 members each. See above for more information. - Handicap: suicidal kind of match. This is the match that you create to make someone pay for his/her acts or to fulfill your deathwish. It is one player against two or three. The only semi-fair one is the One on Tag mode, since here the lonely wrestler faces a Tag Team butt only one wrestler can kick his butt at the time. On the One on Two and One on Three modes the 2/3 wrestlers can be kicking his a$$ at the same time. The winner?, the first one to score a fall by pin, submission or DQ - Royal Rumble: noone can call himself a wrestling fan if he/she doesn't knows what this is. The main event of the January PPV, the winner of this event gets a title shot a Wretlemania. This is on real life of course. The idea of this match is to eliminate your opponents by throwing them off the ring(yes, no pin, no DQ, no submission, nothing) and be the last man on the ring once all the other 29 athletes had been eliminated. The match begins with 4 guys on the ring at once, but every 60 seconds another wrestler runs into the ring, 9 wrestlers can be at the ring at once! Be careful not to fall down or you'll lose. - King Of The Ring: tournament of matches to see who's the best wrestler, the King of the Ring. The winner also gets a title shot around July's PPV or something. You can play the KOTR on normal or special. On normal all the matches are simple single matches. On Special all the matches are gimmick matches(like ladder, table, etc.) and the rules vary with the kind of match, only one thing is important: the winner should be the best. - Hardcore: two bad RVD is not in the game..., but every Cactus Jack fan should love this match, you've got NO DQ, and the winner is the first one to pin or submit the opponent on any part of the... WORLD! Yeah, you can even go and try to win on top of a table on WWF New York. You can use weapons, break stuff like glass windows, just be sadistic and have fun. It can be played on either one of this modes: Single, Tornado Tag, Tornado 6-man Tag, Tornado Tag vs. Tag vs. Tag, One on Two, One on Three, Triple Threat, Fatal 4 Way. For more info check on each section. Tag vs. Tag vs. Tag is a Triple Threat Tag Team Match, this is, 3 Tag Teams face each other and the first team to score a fall wins. - Falls Count Anywhere: pretty much the same as Hardcore, just that with not as many weapons and usually the match begins outside the ring. - Survival: To be the man, woo! Match with lots of wrestler against each other, it can get pretty crazy sometimes believe me. Matches here include: Triple Threat matches: three guys on the ring the first one to score a fall wins, Fatal 4 Way: same as Triple Threat match but with 4 wrestlers, and Battle Royal: 4, 6 or 8 wrestlers against each other on a elimination match wins the last man who scores a fall, each wrestler pined, submitted or DQed must go back to the lockers(but they actually stay down to try to interfere with the match) - Slobberknocker: kind of a Royal Rumble, but it works like this, you get a time limit to eliminate as much wrestler as you can(the limit is 10 minutes I think) you can eliminate them by any method you know: pin, submission or over the top rope. You can - Special: Not a kind of match, but a type of matches. Yeah here you can find the most cruel matches ever created on wrestling like: + Iron-Man: in wrestling history only 4 man had been capable of finishing this match, Shawn Michaels vs. Brett "The Hitman" Hart, and HHH vs. The Rock. Why is it so hard? Because you must wrestle through an entire hour(yep 60 minutes) without stopping and at the end, the man with the most falls awarded by either pin, submission or DQ is the winner. On the game you can get to choose the time, from a simple 5 minutes match(not enough for one fall...) to a real time 60 minutes match!. + Three Stages of Hell: : those of us familiar with Mexican and Japanese wrestling know of a rule called 3 fall match. This is a match that makes you score 2 out of 3 falls to your opponent, each fall by either pin, submission or DQ(exept on special occasions of course) to win the match, well this match is kinda like that. What's the difference then? The matches, all three matches must be gimmick matches, from hardcore to even Iron-Man! The creator of this was Triple-H when he fought against Austin on a match he created, it involved a No DQ match, then the second fall was a Street Fight and the third was Hell in a Cell!, you can choose the three matches in any order you want. + Lumberjack: single match with the ring surrounded of wrestlers to "help you" go back up as soon as you exit the ring. The idea is a match in which a wrestler can't go running outside the ring seeking for more air. If any of them is unlucky enough to fall down all the 6 wrestlers downstairs will have fun with you until they get tired and end putting you back on the ring where a blood thirsty enemy is waiting for you. + Cage: possibly the older gimmick match on the wrestling anywhere! Any number from 2 to 4 wrestlers in a roofless cage. The first one to escape wins the match, easy right? use the up arrow on your D-pad plus R1 to get on the wall of the cage and start rotating the D-pad to climb up. Hit the cage with >< or try to grab it with () to make your opponent loose their foot and fall down. Also a Tornado Tag can be played in here + Hell In A Cell: this is the match that has made so much people famous, specially with the Undertaker or Mick Foley involved on it(Mankind falling over a table, cool!) you and other wrestler/s are locked on a huge cage just for fun and see what happens. You aren't supposed to exit the cage, but there are parts of the walls that can be broken. The pin or submission must be executed inside the cage. If you exit the cage, you can wrestle outside the ring but you can't go backstage. You can go crowd wrestling if you want and you can climb the cage to fight on top of it, you can recreate great moments like Mankind falling of the top of the cage through a table(not gonna happen, but he will fall down and get hurt) or Mick Foley falling through the roof towards the ring(the center of the ring can be broken with a powerful move like a piledriver or a chokeslam. This match can be played between 2 to 6(Armaggedon) wrestlers and the first one to score a fall wins, also can be in Tornado Tag. + I Quit: total humiliation match. You must hit your opponent merciless until he cries on a microphone the magic words I Quit! It is in every single aspect a Hardcore match, except for the fact that you can only win by making the opponent say I Quit. You can go backstage and everything. To win look for the mic when you find it pick it up and stand next to a downed opponent's head and press (), a cool animation of your wrestler talking on the mic and putting it next to your opponent's face will occur, and if you have beaten the crap out of him hard enough he might say I Quit and you will win. This can only be a single match. + Special Referee: simple match with either one or two guest referees and guess what? yes you can be one of the refs, hell you and a friend can be the 2 refs of the match and control everything and do pretty much what you want since you are the authority. Use R2 for every single ref function: counts, submission checks, and even to start yelling to some intruder. The match can be either Single, Tag, Falls Count Anywhere, Iron-Man or Hell in the Cell. + Ladder: 2 Xtreme man! Hail to the Hardy Boyz for this one! A match created years ago(some say that it was Razor Ramon who created this). The idea of this match is to get the belt hanging from the ceiling with the help of a ladder. You use Up on the D-pad plus R1 to climb the ladder and () to try to grab the belt. Use R1 to pick the ladder up and place it on the spot you like, also use >< or () to knock it down. The rest? Imagination, once you are on top of the ladder you can use it the same way you use a turnbuckle. The ladder also works as a weapon and it is said that you can do some moves with it, but I don't know how. It can be played on Single, Tornado Tag, Triple Threat or Fatal 4 Way + Table: the best match ever!. Introduced by the Dudley Boys, the winner is the one or the team who breaks a table using their opponent's bodies. Pick up the table with R1, use it as a weapon or stand it somewhere or even stock them one on top of the other. Whip your opponent toward it and he'll lay down over it. Jump from the top rope toward a opponent laying on a table or press () and any direction and see how it breaks! It can be either a Single, Triple Threat, Fatal 4 Way or a Tornado Tag match. + TLC: Table, Ladder and chairs. Either a Single, a Triple Threat, a Fatal 4 Way or a Tornado Tag match, the point of this match varies with one rule: if it is for a title. When the match is not for a title(just for fun) the winner is the first man or team to score a fall. You can use Table, Ladders and Chairs to punish your opponent, but the fall must be on the ring. If it is for a title, it becomes kind of a ladder match, but with also Tables and Chairs for you to have fun. + Last Man Standing(S): single match without DQ, pins or submission. How the heck do you win? By knocking your opponent down until the ref can count to 10, you know, like a KO on boxing. Use everything you can think off to make this happen, it's a pretty tough one. + Street Fight(S): FOLEY IS GOD!! Single match without ANY KIND OF RULE! Yes, everything goes! From fighting clean to using a shotgun!(you won't be using one, but you get the point) it is like a hardcore match, only that the arena is full of weapons(even twice as a hardcore match) and if my memory doesn't fails the count must be done on the ring(not sure really) + Ultimate Submission(S): personally, my kind of match. It is just like an Iron-Man match, but you can only score falls by submissions. Really a hard match, specially if you can't use good submission moves(where the hell is Ken Shamrock?) - CREATE MODE: used to create stuff, either Wrestlers, Taunts or Stables. I won't loose any time in here, if you want info on this refer to a CAW guide, use your imagination and follow simple on-screen instruction. You use the  to preview some stuff like moves, so have fun, it all depends on your mind. - THEATER MODE: dunno, it has some secret stuff on it, I guess it is to see some videos you unlock on career or something. - OPTIONS: typical option menu of any videogame. If you've played one before then you should be able to know what is in here, just follow on-screen instructions ============================================================================= __________________ | | | 6. The Move List | |__________________| OK this part is kinda self explanatory, but I don't have it ready anyway, I need to play this game so hard and for such a long time to be able to write this up man!(no, not really, but I at least need to have the game first right?) I have the official roster now, including the secret guys, but I still don't have the moves so... *Note: Wrestler marked with an (S) are the secret wrestlers, this can be unlocked by playing the career mode. ====== Albert ====== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ======== Big Show ======== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ========== Billy Gunn ========== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ======== Bradshaw ======== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ================== Buh Buh Ray Dudley ================== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============ Chris Benoit ============ ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============= Chris Jericho ============= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ========= Christian ========= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** =========== Crash Holly =========== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** =========== Dvon Dudley =========== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============== Eddie Guerrero ============== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ==== Edge ==== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ======= Faarooq ======= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============= Fred Durst(S) ============= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============== Hardcore Holly ============== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ======== Ivory ======== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ========== Jeff Hardy ========== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============= Jerry Lynn(S) ============= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ================== Justin Credible(S) ================== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ==== Kane ==== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ========== Kurt Angle ========== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ==== Lita ==== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ========== Matt Hardy ========== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============= Mick Foley(S) ============= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** =========== Molly Holly =========== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============ Perry Saturn ============ ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ===== Raven ===== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ======== Rhyno(S) ======== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ======= Rikishi ======= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============= Shane McMahon ============= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** =============== Spike Dudley(S) =============== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ========================== Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley ========================== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============== Steve Blackman ============== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** =============== Steven Richards =============== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ======================= Stone Cold Steve Austin ======================= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ========= Tajiri(S) ========= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ==== Tazz ==== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ==== Test ==== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ======== The Rock ======== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ======== Triple H ======== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============= Trish Stratus ============= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ========== Undertaker ========== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============= Vince McMahon ============= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============= William Regal ============= ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ==== Xpac(S) ==== ******UNDER CONSTRUCTION****** ============================================================================= _______________________________ | | | 7. Every Hardcore Fan's Dream | |_______________________________| This part is dedicated to the game's weapons and their uses. I don't have the actual weapon list or what you can do with them yet, but this is what I know, oh btw I've heard that you will now have at least a chair on every match, not sure yet, but it would be cool, now lets go on: - Ladders: it is said that you have them of different sizes, used for Ladder and TLC matches(not sure if you can use them on any other match). You can jump from them, hit opponents with them, do some moves with them(not sure how, just heard you can) and both opponents can be on a ladder at the same time(even on the same side) so super-ladder-plexes might be possible(I do have seen a video with the Walls of Jericho over a Table) and more, just cool. - Tables: available on almost every single match with NO DQ on the game: Tables, TLC, Hardcore, Fall Counts Anywhere, I Quit, Street Fight... just count it, if you can't find one around the ring, you can use either the announcer's tables or head backstage to try to find one. You can hit them with them(kinda funny), break them, stock them, jump from them, hell they are my favorite. - Chairs, bells, metal stop signs, trash cans, etc: your typical weapons, you don't have to much to do with them(unless the con-chair-to is here), you can hit opponents with them or do moves onto them for more damage(it is said that the fire extinguisher can be used to fire that foam it shoots, but it's not confirmed). - Mic.: Not really a weapon, you can cause some damage with it, but it's use is to win on the I Quit Match That's pretty much it, I mean for now, I will add everything I can find about weapons and if you find something feel free to mail me, you'll be rightly credited. One thing I do know about weapons is that they now make your "Special" meter grow, yes they have some use(finally). ============================================================================= __________________________ | | | 8.

Quick Finish Moves and Trademark Guides | |____________________________________________| This is to find out how to pull out the finishers for the wrestlers and some very important moves from them(their trademarks) here you have the list of the wrestlers, I can only give you the specials for the normal characters, the secret character's moves will be posted as soon as I found them. Now I will only list the positions to pull them out, you should already know that they are pulled out with the L1 button, and when you see two specials on the same position that means that one of them is done with the D-pad and L1(dunno which one, give it a try to see).
