-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A. Where to hold Title Matches [WHR]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Title matches is where the defending champion puts his title on the line and
is defended on a wrestling match. Title matches can be held in Exhibition and
Tournament Modes.

+++++++++++++++++++++++
- Exhibition Mode [EXM]
+++++++++++++++++++++++
- Allowable matches
        > One on One
        > Triple Threat
        > Fatal 4-Way

Pick the number of participants then pick your match. Pick the superstar(s)
who will be competing in the match, including the champion. As the champion, 
put your champion's title on the line. If he has multiple championships, you
have to select from the list of championships he currently holds (only 1). 
After selecting your participants for the title match, you have will be sent to
the match screen with 3 options:

        PLAY > start the match with the desired match rules and arena.
        MATCH RULES > change the rules for this match.
        SELECT ARENA > select the arena where the match will be held.

-----
NOTE: If your match is a ECW Extreme Rules match (any type), your arena will 
always be in ECW and you can select the weapons that you will use during the
match.
-----

+++++++++++++++++++++++
- Tournament Mode [TRN]
+++++++++++++++++++++++
- Allowable matches
        > Beat the Clock Sprint
	> King of the Ring
        > Money in the Bank
        > SmackDown vs RAW
	> Custom Tournament

You will only select your superstar who will compete in the tournament. Your 
opponents will be selected by the game automatically. If you choose "Create 
Tournament", you can select your own rules. Select the title to be defended in 
the first option or you can practice by selecting any of the "Non-Title-" match

Choose what tournament you will take from the list above. Then select how many 
superstars will participate. You can also toggle whether Ironman Match is on or
off.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B. Important note for General Manager Mode [IGM]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- There are a couple of things to consider when taking title matches in the 
game's GM Mode.

++++++++++++++++
- Special titles
++++++++++++++++
Titles like the Cruiserweight Championship and Women's Championship are very 
unique titles. Cruiserweight Championship can only be fought by Cruiserweight-
weight class superstars. Women's Championship can only be fought by divas or 
featherweight superstars.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
- Two champions, similar titles
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Titles like the World Tag Team Championship and WWE Tag Team Championship have 
two champions respectively. These titles can only be defended in "Two on Two" 
matches (except Normal w/Manager vs w/manager Match). These titles cannot also 
be defended through Hardcore Triple Threat Tornado Tag matches. This applies in
24/7 General Manager Mode.

++++++++++++++++++
- Popularity boost
++++++++++++++++++
World titles such as the World Heavyweight Championship, ECW Championship and 
WWE Championship gives the superstar a +5 popularity instead of +3. Titles not 
mentioned only gives out +3 to popularity.

+++++++++++++++++
- Obsolete titles
+++++++++++++++++
Legend Titles cannot be defended nor be in General Manager Mode because these 
titles are bought from the WWE Shop. But they can be defended in Exhibition or 
Tournament Modes as explained in the previous section.
