MONEY IN THE BANK (NEW)
In it, six different WWE superstars battle it out for a shot at the title from their particular brand (SmackDown or Raw).
Similar to a traditional ladder match, this contest places a briefcase with a championship contract suspended high above the ring.
The first wrestler to successfully navigate his way to the top of a taller ladder and grab the briefcase wins the match. Being successful guarantees that superstar the right to a title shot any time they want. Sadly, the exact way in which this works during the career mode is still unknown. But at least we know that it's in there.
Incidentally, the first two people to win the "Money in the Bank" match (Edge and Rob Van Dam) went on to win the WWE Championship later in the year. By coincidence or not, John Cena was the man who lost the belt on both occasions.

THQ says it will bring a more realistic fighting experience with a new analog control grappling system, enabling the player to throw their opponent anywhere they want, in contrast to previous preset animations. In the new system, grappling moves will also be affected by analog control, in contrast to the button-based system from preceding games. One can also move around the ring by analog control instead of using the D-pad.
An option to switch to the previous control layout is also possible. The chain reversal system has also been improved and now involves grapples as well as strikes.Move sets have been improved as well and now feature restrictions on specific moves for particular wrestler classes. Moves such as hurricanranas cannot be done by taller, heavier wrestlers and more power based moves cannot be performed by cruiserweights or divas. A lot more interactivity in the arenas will also be present such as fighting within the crowd.
Signs and objects from the crowd can be used to beat down the opponent. One major feature included is the inclusion of environmental "hotspots" such as the ring ropes, steel steps and scaffolding which players can interact with crowd.The PS2 version however has a restriction on crowd fighting and interaction for specific match types. Voice chat will be in the game to communicate with other players in the online modes. This was a feature that was supposed to be included in the previous two SmackDown! Vs. RAW games but was not included due to time constraints.
The graphics have also improved with each superstar consisting of 20,000 polygons for the Xbox 360 compared to the total of 500 from the PS2 version of the previous game. Sweat from the wrestlers has now been included in the Xbox 360 version of the game. Cory Ledesma, creative manager of WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2007, announced in a video interview that the Season mode will be similar to the one featured in WWE SmackDown! Here Comes The Pain, featuring champion, challenger and generic storyline paths and more choices for the user. The season mode has been confirmed to last for ten years. It has been confirmed that season mode will have several new features, such as the inclusion of a replica WWE.com, where the player can purchase costumes, belts and legends, as well as read wrestler biographies and articles on developments in the season mode. Also included is WWE Magazine, where one can read about the current storyline, and the ability for wrestlers to switch brands throughout the season.
There will be improvements to the General Manager mode with more detailed information for the player's roster and more user-friendly interface including roster search filters. The General Manager mode will now also include the Power 25, a weekly ranking system of the top 25 WWE Superstars based on their achievements that week, as well as the ability to hire writers for their show. The player is also able to book matches for the televised HEAT and Velocity shows, but will not affect the ratings for their respective RAW and SmackDown! Shows. Ledesma confirmed that the game will have no new match types. However, there will be improvements in existing match types.
The Money in the Bank variant to the ladder match will be added and all ladder matches will feature more flexibility in placing the ladders. The Tables match is also undergoing a complete overhaul, requiring players to build up momentum and store a finisher before being able to put an opponent through a table. An improved Hell in a Cell match has also been confirmed.
