Road to WrestleMania - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ============ A. JOHN CENA ============ -WEEK 1- The first wrestler you control is John Cena. Exit the dressing room, following the crew member. A short scene will play in which The Big Show attacks Jack Swagger. Then John will continue following the crew member, all the way to the gorilla position. ========== B. SHEAMUS ========== --------------------------- BA. ROAD TO BRAGGING RIGHTS --------------------------- -WEEK 1- Oh, but what a twist! No, you're not playing as John Cena--you're playing as The Celtic Warrior, Sheamus! A heel! Indeed. Sheamus will attack Cena before his match with The Undertaker can even take place, after which, you have control of him. Throw Cena to the top of the stage using Irish Whips, or the B button. At the top of the stage, beat the hell out of Cena until a "Y" button prompt appears above his head. NOTE: If you're playing the PS3 version, "B" would be O and "Y" would be triangle. At any rate, by pressing Y, Sheamus will High Cross Cena off the stage and through a table. Then later in the night, Sheamus is scheduled to fight Daniel Bryan in a one-on-one singles match. VS. Daniel Bryan -This is a standard wrestling match. You just have to beat Daniel Bryan in order to advance. It's not going to happen in 18 seconds, so just attack him until you've built up your signature move. Then perform one of Sheamus's signature moves, and then one of his finishing moves. All of this is done using the Y button, by the way. Pin Daniel Bryan with the B button. -WEEK 2- Sheamus will cut a promo, but he is interrupted by Jack Swagger, The Miz, and Wade Barrett. After a short war of words, Sheamus will charge the ramp in a rage. Beat up Wade Barrett and then press Y when prompted, just like you did last week with John Cena. with Drew McIntyre and William Regal VS. Team SmackDown -You will first be William Regal as the legal man, with the objective to "weaken Miz in the ring". This is done basically by just beating him up and using signture/finisher attacks. When this is done, Miz will tag out to Jack Swagger. -The second part of the match has a new objective to defeat Jack Swagger in the ring. By the way, if you are tired of using William Regal, you can tag out using LB and pointing in the direction of the person that you want to tag. To end this match, hit Jack Swagger with a finishing move. This will then cause Jack to tag out to Miz, and then Wade will attack both of his partners, and Miz will be pinned. -WEEK 3- VS. Cody Rhodes -Another standard wrestling match. Simply pin Cody or make him submit in order to advance. -WEEK 4- with Drew McIntyre and William Regal VS. Albert Del Rio, Edge, and Mark Henry -Simply defeat the other team. When you go for a pin, the other members of the other team will not interfere to break up the pin like in previous games, so treat this as a regular match. -BRAGGING RIGHTS- Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown -This match is kind of weird. Only three members of each team are on the apron at any given time. When one member of the other team is eliminated, then someone comes out to replace them. It doesn't matter who you eliminate first, but when they're eliminated, Big Show will rush to the ring to replace them for Team SmackDown. -Big Show will eliminate Mark Henry and then William Regal on your team. Those two will be replaced by Alberto Del Rio and Triple H. Your new objective is to defeat The Big Show. You have to be Alberto Del Rio, and you can't beat Big Show by pinfall. You have to deal a ton of damage to him to the point where you are able to build up two finishers and apply the Cross Armbreaker twice. The second time, Big Show will counter and then eliminate Del Rio. -Now you will be in control of Sheamus, with the same objective of defeating The Big Show. Use the same strategy as before: beat him up to the point that a Y button prompt appears above his head. Then press Y to initiate a cut-scene that shows Sheamus, Triple H, and Drew McIntyre (who replaced Del Rio) teaming up against Show to eliminate him. -The next objective is a bit more lax. You can either "defeat" Miz or "defeat" Randy Orton. You play as Triple H, and all you have to do is, yet again, beat either Miz or Orton to the point that the "Y" button prompt appears above their head. Then press the button to initiate a cut-scene that sees Orton disqualified, HHH eliminated by Miz, and then Miz defeated by Drew McIntyre. -As Drew, you need to now defeat the next entrant for Team SmackDown, Rey Mysterio. Same strategy as before, wait for the "Y" button prompt, and then press it. Unfortunately, it will result in Drew being eliminted by Rey-Rey instead. -This will cause Sheamus to come into the ring, and you will once again control him. Defeat Rey Mysterio as though this was a standard wrestling match, by eliminating him via pinfall or submission. -Sheamus and Barrett will then suddenly turn on their remaining partners, Edge and Jack Swagger respectively, and William Regal and Drew McIntyre will come out to join them! --------------------------- BB. ROAD TO SURVIVOR SERIES --------------------------- -WEEK 5- Edge confronts Sheamus in the backstage area, and then reveals that Sheamus will be involved in a multi-man tag team match at Survivor Series that will determine the contenders for the titles. This then results in a backstage brawl between the two. Beat Edge up, then while you are near the boxes that are to the immediate right of the vending machine, press Y. This will set Edge up against the boxes. Press A to initiate a cut-scene. Alberto Del Rio and Jack Swagger will then impose in the brawl as well. Take the two of them out in the exact manner that you took out Edge. Edge will then finish the brawling by Spearing Sheamus into a crate. -WEEK 6- VS. Alberto Del Rio -Standard wrestling match. Beat Del Rio to advance. -WEEK 7- with Wade Barrett VS. Jack Swagger and The Big Show -This is a tag match...but it has an objective that it really doesn't let you know about for some reason. Basically, you will begin the match as Wade Barrett and you will be facing off against Big Show. It doesn't matter how much that you tag in and out, but once you wear Big Show down enough, he will tag out to Jack Swagger. -When Swagger is in, you just need to wear him down enough until the Y appears above his head. Then press Y. Unfortunately, Wade and Sheamus will still wind up defeated at the hands of The Big Show. -WEEK 8- It is determined by William Regal that Big Show is the biggest threat to the new foreign super group. Wade and Sheamus confront Big Show in the parking garage. Beat on him with Wade until a "Y" appears above his head, press it, and then Big Show will get the upperhand, eliminating Wade from the brawl. By yourself, resume the beating on Big Show until you are able to press Y again as it appears above his head. This time the brawl will result with Sheamus slamming a car door on Big Show's head. -SURVIVOR SERIES- Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match -At the start of the match, you need to eliminate either Swagger or Del Rio. They will tag each other in and out, but they will almost never tag in Edge. Beat them up to the point where they can be pinned and eliminated. -When they're both eliminated, The Big Show will rush down to the ring and take out Drew McIntyre. Your new goal is to once again beat Show up to the point that you can press the Y button as it flashes above his head. Do this and Show will be eliminated, leaving only Edge on the opposing team left. -Repeat the process with Edge to win the match. --------------- BC. ROAD TO TLC --------------- -WEEK 9- VS. Kofi Kingston - United States Championship -U.S. title is on the line in this match, per the stips at Survivor Series. Beat Kofi in this match to proceed. -WEEK 10- with Drew McIntyre VS. John Cena and Rey Mysterio -Tornado tag team rules. No pinning or submissions. Just beat up on them until the Y button appears and yet again, use it to end the match. -WEEK 10 (SD)- With Wade, jump The Undertaker. Beat up on Undertaker in this little hallway until the Y button prompt appears press it to get jumped by Kane! with Wade Barrett VS. The Brothers of Destruction -Beat up on Undertaker or Kane, whoever is legal, until the prompt appears. Press it. The result is a DQ loss and escaping Kane and Undertaker. -WEEK 11- Layla and The United Kingdom VS. Christian, Ezekiel Jackson, and Natalya -You don't even play as Sheamus in this match! This is a standard wrestling match, but the women HAVE to wrestle the women. If Natalya tags out to either Christian or Zeke, you will be DQ'd if you fail to tag out to one of the male partners on your own team, be that Drew McIntyre or Regal. -TLC- John Cena vs. Sheamus - Tables, Ladders, and Chairs WHC Match -Don't bother climbing the ladder to pull down the belt. It won't work. You just need to beat up Cena to the point that the button prompt appears, press it and then Cena will be defeated and the championship will be yours. ------------------------ BD. ROAD TO ROYAL RUMBLE ------------------------ -WEEK 12- VS. John Cena - World Heavyweight Championship Match -Beat Cena up to the point that the Y button prompt appears above his head. Then press it and watch the scene. -WEEK 13- The United Kingdom VS. Daniel Bryan and Kofi Kingston - WWE Tag Title Match -Once again, you're not playing as Sheamus. Instead you are playing as the WWE Tag Team Champions, Drew McIntyre and William Regal. Your first objective is to wear down Daniel Bryan to the point that he has to make the tag to Kofi. I recommend playing as Drew for this part, since you are forced to play as Regal for the next segment -When Bryan tags out to Kofi, continue to beat him up with Drew. Then when Drew starts to get fatigued, tag out to Regal. As Regal, continue the assault until the Y button prompt appears above his head, press it, and then watch the subsequent events unfold. -WEEK 14- Edge hosts a segment of the Cutting Edge, with Arn Anderson as his guest. However, it's a set-up, as Edge feeds Anderson to Sheamus and Barrett! As Sheamus, beat up Anderson, press the Y button, and end the brawl. However, Sheamus and Barrett then turn on Edge. Now you have to brawl with him, and repeat the process. -WEEK 15- with Drew McIntyre and Wade Barrett VS. Arn Anderson, Edge, and John Cena -This match is separated out into three parts. The first part involves you against Arn Anderson. Beat Arn up to the point that he has to make the tag. He will tag out to John Cena. -Continue the assault on Cena. Eventually Cena will be forced to tag out to Edge. -Weaken Edge to the point that the prompt appears above his head and then press it. Due to shenanigans, Edge will actually pick up the win with a Spear. -ROYAL RUMBLE- After Triple H wins the Rumble, Sheamus rushes out to attack him. This then results in the typical brawl, where you beat up on him until you are prompted to finish the segment with a press of the Y button. VS. John Cena - World Heavyweight Championship Match -Arn Anderson is the Special Enforcer for this match. Anderson will hop on the apron occasionally, but besides that, he does nothing of note. You can throw Cena into Anderson to send him flying off the apron if you want, and if Anderson goes to give Cena advice, then that leaves an opening to attack Cena from behind. -Don't bother going for pinfalls or submissions. Just weaken Cena until you can press Y. Then watch as the shocking events unfold! ------------------------------- BE. ROAD TO ELIMINATION CHAMBER ------------------------------- -WEEK 16- Just a cut-scene. -WEEK 17- William Regal VS. Mark Henry - EC Qualifier -Yet again, you don't play as Sheamus, but Sheamus is at ringside as the manager of Regal. If Regal wins this match, he qualifies to enter the Elimination Chamber that Wade Barrett is in to help him retain that title at the show. -At any rate, this is a standard wrestling match. As Regal, simply defeat Mark Henry by pinfall or submission to win the match. Sheamus will help you out by attacking Henry throughout the match. -WEEK 18- Drew McIntyre vs. The Miz - EC Qualifier -You can't win this match by pinfall or submission. You have to weaken him to the point that you can press the Y button prompt. -WEEK 19- Backstage brawl with Alberto Del Rio, but you have William Regal and Wade Barrett to help you out. Just beat the crap out of Alberto, then press Y when prompted. This will set him up against the crates in this hall. Then press A to grapple him against the crates, which will finish the fight. -ELIMINATION CHAMBER- Elimination Chamber Match -The first two entrants in the match will be Sheamus and John Cena. Beat up Cena for a while. You can't eliminate him, so just wear him down until the next pod opens. -The next entrant will be The Miz. You have to beat Miz up to the point that the Y button prompt appears above his head BEFORE the next pod opens. Focus all your attention on Miz and don't let up until this happens. Cena will nail Miz with the Attitude Adjustment, but Sheamus will steal the pin and the glory. -Continue to fight Cena until the next pod opens up, revealing Daniel Bryan. You have to defeat Bryan on the outside of the ring, on the steel. So throw him through the ropes and then fight him on the steel until the Y button prompt appears to get rid of him. -Fight John Cena until R-Truth exits the pod. Then beat R-Truth inside the ring in the same manner that you did Miz and Bryan to eliminate him as well. -Now you have to eliminate Cena before the final pod opens. You don't have a lot of time, so nail him with a few powerful grapple attacks quickly. This should be enough to make the "Y" button prompt appear. Press it, and this match is done. ------------------------------ BF. ROAD TO WRESTLEMANIA XXVII ------------------------------ -WEEK 20- Backstage brawl with Wade Barrett. You need to be in the area to the right of the vending machine to end this. Beat him up. Press Y. You know the drill by now. -WEEK 21- Exit Sheamus's locker room and then walk through the hallway. Walk by Rey Mysterio, and walk by R-Truth. Between R-Truth and Edge/Christian, there will be an open doorway that leads down a hall with more locker rooms. Go down the hall, and then open the first door on the right to talk to William Regal. Drew McIntyre and Wade Barrett will intercept the two of you as you exit the room. The result is ANOTHER backstage brawl. You need to end this match to the magical area to the right of the vending machine. Throw your opponents over there and run there yourself. Then beat up on them until you can throw them against the boxes. Then grapple them as they are on the boxes to defeat them one by one. -WEEK 22- with William Regal vs. Drew McIntyre and Wade Barrett -Standard tag team wrestling match. Win by either pinfall, submission, count-out, whatever. Just win the match! It doesn't matter who you win, there's no fancy button pressing, just a good, old-fashioned wrestling match! -WRESTLEMANIA XXVII- VS. Drew McIntyre VS. Wade Barrett VS. William Regal -There are no DQs in this match and it's Falls Count Anywhere! So don't be afraid about using weapons. In fact, I highly recommend just beating the hell out of William Regal with a chair or something to make this go faster. He has to be defeated in the ring, though, so get that done with to eliminate Regal from the match using the button prompt. -Drew and Wade will retreat to the backstage area. Chase Drew down the halls until he is cornered in the parking garage. Then beat the crap out of him here until you can use the button to defeat him. -Wade will try a sneak attack following Drew's elimination. Chase Wade down the hall, and remember, you can just push on the left analog stick to sprint, no need to hold down the left trigger like you usually do in the ring. Run towards the vending machine and the boxes that you usually use to defeat people in this place. -Beat up on Wade until the Y button prompt yet again appears. You need to be by the double doors in order to have the opportunity to press it. After this, you have completed the first Act of the game! =========== C. TRIPLE H =========== -WRESTLEMANIA XXVII- VS. Sheamus - WWE Championship -HHH attacks Sheamus from behind at the start of this match, and Sheamus begins crawling down the ramp. Simply push the left analog stick forward to chase after Sheamus as he crawls towards the ring. -In the ring, beat up on Sheamus to make the Y button prompt appear. The easy way to do this is to just pick up the WWE Championship belt and hit Sheamus a couple of times with it. ------------------------- CA. ROAD TO EXTREME RULES ------------------------- -WEEK 23- VS. Zack Ryder - King of the Ring Round 1 Match -Standard wrestling match. Beat Zack Ryder to advance. -WEEK 24- VS. Dolph Ziggler - No DQ King of the Ring Round 2 Match -Standard NO DQ Match. You can use weapons, so don't be shy about going out to the ring and grabbing a chair or something to wail on Dolph with. Then beat him by pinfall or submission in the ring to end the match. -WEEK 25- VS. Jack Swagger - Tables King of the Ring Round 3 Match -To win this match, you have to put Swagger through a table. There's not much else to it. -WEEK 26- VS. The Miz - Steel Cage King of the Ring Round 4 Match -Inside the cage, beat Miz up to the point that the Y button prompt appears and then press it. --->11 MONTHS LATER<--- -WEEK 27- Triple H is injured in the steel cage at the hands of Miz, and then returns 11 months later, attacking Miz at WrestleMania. He is then traded to the SmackDown brand. When you arrive at the arena, walk down the hallway, past the soda machine. Triple H will then automatically go to his locker room, get attacked by Kevin Nash, and then exit to find Dolph Ziggler staring him in the face. Fight Dolph in the hallway and beat him to the point that the Y button appears. Then press Y to throw him against the boxes and then grapple him to knock him out. -WEEK 28- Triple H interrupts a match between Chavo Guerrero and Ezekiel Jackson. Run into the ring and beat them both up until you are able to take both of them out with Pedigrees. -WEEK 29- Exit the locker room to start a conversation with Randy Orton in the hallway. VS. John Morrison -Standard wrestling match. Defeat Morrison to advance. -WEEK 30- VS. Dolph Ziggler -Standard wrestling match. Defeat Ziggler to advance. -WEEK 31- You have to take out Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes, and Zack Ryder on the outside of the ring. And the last person you take out has to be on the side of the ring that is facing the ramp. They don't put up much of a fight, so just keep hitting all three of them with Pedigrees as they come. -EXTREME RULES- VS. Randy Orton VS. The Miz - Extreme Rules WWE Championship Match -Focus most of your attention on Orton. There is no DQ in this match, so grab weapons from under the ring to wear Orton down quicker. Then when the prompt appears, press Y to end this match. -------------------------- CB. ROAD TO OVER THE LIMIT -------------------------- -WEEK 32- Just a cut-scene. -WEEK 33- VS. Edge - #1 Contender's Match -Beat Edge up until the prompt appears. -WEEK 34- Edge is attacked by the Mizfits, aka Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, Zack Ryder, and Cody Rhodes. Run out to the ring and then attack all four of the Mizfits until the Y button prompts appears. Edge can also do his special to them and it will count, but once each member has been hit with a finisher, you advance to the next week. -WEEK 35- with Edge VS. R-Truth and Randy Orton -Beat R-Truth up enough to the point that he wants to tag in Randy Orton. You can use Edge or HHH in this match, it doesn't matter. -When Truth tags out to Orton, beat Orton up to the point that the button prompt appears as Triple H. Backstage, you will now be involved in a brawl with Cody Rhodes. Beat up Cody and win in the backstage area by KO using the traditional "smash your knee into his head and into a box" method. -OVER THE LIMIT- VS. Randy Orton - WWE Championship Match -Beat up Randy. Press the button when told. ----------------------- CC. ROAD TO FATAL-4-WAY ----------------------- -WEEK 36- VS. Cody Rhodes VS. R-Truth - Fatal-4-Way Qualifier -This match can be kind of difficult. A good strategy is to hit one opponent with your signature, then the other with your finisher, and try to pin them. So, when you get your signature move, hit Truth with a Spinebuster, and then Cody with a Pedigree, for example. Another good way to do this is to incapacitate one of the opponents with a running grapple attack, or throw them to the outside with a strong Irish Whip. -WEEK 37- Backstage brawl with Kane. Beat him up until the Y button appears and then press it to advance. -WEEK 38- Backstage brawl with Cody Rhodes, Dolph Ziggler, and Jack Swagger. You need to eliminate them one by one by throwing them into the boxes. -WEEK 39- VS. Edge VS. Randy Orton -Beat up on either Edge or Orton until the "Y" appears, then press it to end this match. Then you have a backstage brawl with Dolph Ziggler backstage. Defeat him against the boxes to end this little segment. R-Truth will approach you. Follow him to the dressing room area to find Kane and Jack Swagger. Next you will brawl with Kane and Swagger in the hallway. Beat them up. Hit Y, and then grapple them against the wall. Trips will either slam their head in a door or smash the back of their head against the wall depending on their positioning. -FATAL-4-WAY- VS. Edge VS. Kane VS. Randy Orton - Steel Cage WWE Championship -The trick to this match is to NOT let your opponents climb out of the cage. I recommend sprinting to each opponent, one at a time, and nailing them with a running + grapple combination attack. If they start climbing, grapple the side of the cage and hold A to rip them off the cage wall. -To beat this match, one of the opponents, doesn't matter who, needs to be hurt enough for the button prompt to appear. When it happens, tap Y, and enjoy the cut-scene. ----------------------------- CD. ROAD TO MONEY IN THE BANK ----------------------------- -WEEK 40- VS. Kane and R-Truth -Standard Handicap Match. Just work over either Kane or R-Truth to the point that you can pin or submit them. Try to make sure they don't tag in or out, otherwise it will take a little bit more time to finish this match-up. -WEEK 41- Brawl with Dolph Ziggler, Zack Ryder, and Cody Rhodes on the ramp and the top of the stage. Beat up on each one of them until the "Y" button prompt appears to Pedigree each one and get rid of them. -WEEK 42- VS. Randy Orton - Money in the Bank Qualifier -Standard singles match. Beat Randy Orton via pinfall or submission to advance. -MONEY IN THE BANK- Money in the Bank Ladder Match -Everyone in the match will constantly attack you and try to help Kane climb the ladder. It's a pain in the ass. To counter this, just constantly try to climb the ladder yourself. The first time you try to pull down the briefcase, done by pushing up on the right analog stick to grab it, then pulling down on the right analog stick to yank, a cut-scene will play. -Dolph Ziggler will get injured and taken out of the match. Your new goal is to hit every opponent left with a finishing move. The game will constantly build you up to a signature move, so just hit each opponent with your signature move, and then your finisher. Once you've connected with a Pedigree on every opponent at least once, the match will end. ---------------------- CE. ROAD TO SUMMERSLAM ---------------------- -WEEK 43- With the sledgehammer, hit all the opponents on the ramp with the sledgehammer, and after you've hit them all, a scene will play. -WEEK 44- with Randy Orton VS. Edge and The Miz -You have to be Triple H for the match. Beat up on either Edge or Miz, doesn't matter which, to the point that the "Y" button prompt appears. Then press it to end the match. -WEEK 55- VS. Randy Orton -Fight Orton until the Y button prompt appears and press it. Next, you have to brawl with the Mizfits with Orton. Keep an eye on Orton as you brawl because if a Y button appears above an opponent that Orton is brawling with, you can tap Y and make Orton RKO that guy, making the job go much easier and faster. The last opponent that you've beaten down needs to be taken out on the outside of the ring, the one next to the ramp. -WEEK 56- Chase Miz through the backstage hallways until you reach the parking garage. Then brawl with him until the Y button prompt appears and take him out. -SUMMERSLAM- VS. Edge VS. Randy Orton VS. The Miz - WWE Championship -The first order of business is to damage Orton enough that you can press Y when prompted. This is kind of annoying because Edge and Miz will attack you and Orton all the time and ignore each other. -The next objective is a little confusing. It says to just perform a finisher on Edge on the stage, but you really you have to damage him to the point that you can press Y and eliminate him from the match. Just run to the stage and Edge will follow. Miz will probably stay in the ring and taunt, but if he has his finisher, he will come onto the stage as well. To get rid of Miz, just Irish Whip him down the ramp, and then when he gets thrown back into the ring, he will likely just stay there. -Beat Miz up on the stage and press Y. -Then The Mizfits will come out. R-Truth, Jack Swagger, Dolph Ziggler, and Kane. Just attack all of them until you are able to hit Y and nail each one with a Pedigree at a time until they have all been defeated. Just grapple attacks on them will cause them to stay on the ground for a long time, so you don't really need to worry about being overwhelmed by their numbers. ============= D. JACOB CASS ============= Austin Aries! Yeah, the indy darling/current TNA superstar lends his voice for Jacob Cass in this game. At any rate, the first order of business is to create Cass. You can edit his appearance for as long as you'd like, including his entrance and entrance attire. When you're done editing Cass, press RB to the farthest tab on the right and then confirm that you have finished editing Cass. --------------------------- DA. ROAD TO SURVIVOR SERIES --------------------------- -WEEK 57- Jacob Cass wins NXT off-screen. Exit the dressing room and then you will be attacked by Husky Harris in the backstage area. Move to the area to the right of the pop machine. Beat him up, press Y, and then watch the cinematic that plays. -WEEK 58- VS. Daniel Bryan -Standard wrestling match. Defeat Daniel Bryan to advance. -WEEK 59- with Daniel Bryan VS. Husky Harris and Justin Gabriel -Standard wrestling match. Defeat Harris and Gabriel with either Cass or Daniel Bryan in the ring to advance. -WEEK 60- VS. Justin Gabriel -Beat up on Justin until the button prompt appears. -SURVIVOR SERIES- Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match -You will start the match as Daniel Bryan against Husky Harris. Beat up on Harris until you can hit Y and then do so to complete the first section of the match. -Repeat the process as Rey Mysterio against Justin Gabriel. -Then it will just be Cass, Barrett, and Husky left in the match. Eliminate them one at a time. When they've both been eliminated, the match will be over. ---------------------------------- DB. ROAD TO CLASH OF THE CHAMPIONS ---------------------------------- -WEEK 61- VS. Alberto Del Rio -Standard wrestling match against Del Rio. Defeat him in any manner to advance. -WEEK 62- with Husky Harris VS. Ted DiBiase and Tyson Kidd -Husky won't get on the apron, so you can't tag him in. This is essentially a handicap match because of that fact. At any rate, beat up on Kidd until the Y button prompt appears. Vader and Animal will run to the ring and attack. Try to focus your attacks on Vadeer. If you knock down Animal, he will stay down for a long period of time, leaving Vader open to a series of attacks uninterrupted. When the Y button prompt appears, press it. -WEEK 63- Rey Mysterio VS. Eddie Guerrero -This is a replay of a match between Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio that happened on WCW Monday Nitro. So no Jacob Cass this week, evidently. You play as Eddie. Defeat Rey to advance to the next week. -WEEK 64- VS. Husky Harris -Standard match against Harris. Defeat him in any manner to end the match. -CLASH OF THE CHAMPIONS- VS. Booker T -Standard wrestling match against Booker T. Defeat him in the match to finish up your performance at the pay-per-view. Later, Cass will be involved in a big brawl between a bunch of old WCW guys with John Cena. Just fight off the WCW guys, which consists of Arn Anderson, Vader, Booker T, and Animal. When enough time has passed, you will advance to the next week. ------------------------ DC. ROAD TO ROYAL RUMBLE ------------------------ -WEEK 65- A backstage brawl with Vader. End it by throwing smashing his head into one of the boxes near the entrance to the ring. Or the big grey double doors. -WEEK 66- VS. Kofi Kingston - Royal Rumble Qualifier -Standard wrestling match against Kofi. Defeat Kofi to advance. -WEEK 67- Exit the dressing room. You will be attacked by Booker T and Vader. Take the two of them out by throwing them into the boxes backstage as you do during every backstage brawl. -WEEK 68- VS. Animal -Defeat Animal in a standard wrestling match to advance. -ROYAL RUMBLE- Royal Rumble Match -Jacob Cass enters at #36. Eliminate everyone, but ignore The Big Show and then Cody Rhodes once he enters. You can't eliminate either of them, but everyone else can be eliminated, and it doesn't matterwhat order. ------------------------------- DD. ROAD TO ELIMINATION CHAMBER ------------------------------- -WEEK 69- As Randy Orton, your goal is to take out Arn Anderson, The Big Show, and Vader. Head to the announce table and fight them all off in that area. Hit Y whenever you get the chance until all three men have been taken out with an RKO near the announce table. -WEEK 70- with Rey Mysterio VS. Cody Rhodes and The Big Show -Standard tag team match. You can defeat Cody and Big Show by defeating either of them as either Cass or Mysterio. -WEEK 71- VS. Vader - Steel Cage Match -Defeat Vader either by pinfall, submission, or escaping the cage to end the match. -WEEK 72- VS. Booker T, Cody Rhodes, and Vader -The first person in the ring will be Vader. Fight him until he tags out to Cody. Then fight Cody until he tags out to Booker. Then wear Booker down until the Y button appears above his head to end the match. -ELIMINATION CHAMBER- Elimination Chamber Match -It will be just you and Booker T at first. Fight Booker T until Sheamus enters the match. Then continue to beat on Booker until the "Y" button appears. The resulting cut-scene will see both Booker and Sheamus eliminated. -Kevin Nash will be the next entrant in the match. Fight him until Edge is entered into the match. Then press Y to see Edge eliminated and for the match to end. ------------------------ DE. ROAD TO WRESTLEMANIA ------------------------ -WEEK 73- Brawl with Big Show on the stage until the "Y" button prompt appears and then press it to end this segment. -WEEK 74- with Triple H VS. Animal and Cody Rhodes -Standard tag team wrestling match. You can be either Jacob Cass or Triple H and you can pin/submit/whatever either Animal or Cody Rhodes. No fancy button prompts to worry about. -WEEK 75- VS. The Big Show -This is not a standard wrestling match. You just have to keep fighting Big Show until the "Y" button prompt appears. At that point, press the button to end the match. -WEEK 76- Exit the dressing room. Then you have a brawl with Vader and Animal. Using the crates to the right of the vending machine, defeat both of them to end this brawl. -WRESTLEMANIA- with Triple H VS. Kevin Nash and Rey Mysterio -Tag out to Triple H to end the first section of the match. -The second section will be between Cass and Rey Mysterio. Beat up on Rey until the "Y" button prompt appears. At some point during the match, a QTE will occur but it doesn't matter if you complete it successfully or not. The only possible outcomes are you win and you do extra damage to Rey, or you lose and Rey does extra damage to you. --------------------- DF. ROAD TO STARRCADE --------------------- -WEEK 77- VS. Edge and The Miz -Beat up on Miz until he tags out to Edge. Then beat up on Edge until the "Y" button prompt appears. -WEEK 78- Backstage brawl with Vader and Animal. Defeat them to the right of the vending machine in the typical fashion. Then you have to chase Cody Rhodes down the hallways and to the parking garage. In the garage, you have to fight off Booker T and Cody Rhodes in the same way that you fought off vader and Animal before. This time you KO them by throwing them into the cars around the garage after they have been weakened enough. -STARRCADE- Hell in a Cell Match -The match will start with Cass and Vader. It's kind of like a War Games Match from the old WCW, but with elimination rules. The next entrant will be Booker T, and then after that, John Cena for your side. Following Cena is Big Show. The key to this is to just survive. Keep the attack on your opponents, and wait out the time until the next entrant. The next entrant, by the way, is Sheamus, and his appearance will trigger a cut-scene that results in his quick elimination. -Triple H will enter the match next. At this point, focus your attention on Booker T. When enough damage has been done to him, you will be able to press Y and then subsequently eliminate him from the match-up. -The next person that needs to be worn down is Vader. Beat up on him and focus your efforts until the "Y" button prompt appears above Vader's head as well. -Now it will be you, HHH, and Cena all against Show, giving Team WWE the very important man-advantage. Keep beating up on Show until Animal enters the ring. Animal's entrance will result in the elimination of John Cena, evening out the teams again. -Next focus all of your efforts on Animal, wearing him down. Mr. McMahon will eventually join the match for Team WWE, once again putting Team WWE at an advantage. Once McMahon enters, Animal can be worn down to the point that the "Y" button prompt appears, and he can then be eliminated from the match. -You'd think the next person to worry about would be Rey Mysterio, but in all actuality, it's time to focus on eliminating Big Show. Rey Mysterio will enter the match at some point, and at that time, you are able to eliminate Big Show if you have worn him down sufficiently. -Keep fighting Rey until Kevin Nash enters the match. Nash will then eliminate Triple H. -Fight off Nash and Mysterio utnil The Undertaker enters the ring. When he does, then that means you are now able to eliminate Mysterio. Beat up on Rey until the "Y" button prompt appears above his head. During the following scene, Undertaker will also be eliminated from the match. -Along with Mr. McMahon, focus your attention on Kevin Nash. When enough damage has been done, you can press Y. Unfortunately, the subsequent cut-scene depicts the elimination of Mr. McMahon, leaving only you and Nash left in the match. -Beat up on Nash until the Y button prompt appears. Press it to kickstart a cut-scene, which will conclude with Nash and Cass fighting up to the top of the Hell in a Cell. -Resume beating up on Nash on the top of the Cell until once again, the Y button appears. Press it to send Cass and Nash crashing through the top of the Cell, falling through the ring mat. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 5.
