1. 	Introduction
----------------------------------------------------------------

Since I bought my xbox in 2002, i have been waiting patiently for
a successful wrestling game to be as good as WWF No Mercy on the
Nintendo 64. While Wrestlemania 21 is not this game, it is better
than the two previous WWE games released. So this is why i am making 
this FAQ.

This is my first FAQ ever, so obviously it will not be as great as 
others, but lets see how we go.

For those who have enjoyed other wrestling games like "Day of Reckoning" 
on the Gamecube, this game will be no disappointment. It follows the same
idea. A new wrestling jobber comes to the WWE in search of fame. You take 
control of him (him being your created wrestler) and fight through a linear
story mode. While some will not like the un-interactive story, once you start 
playing it will have the same feel as a normal fighting game.

In this game there are four Prestige levels that a person has to go through
to be able to open up the more high-quality unlockable materials in the game.
This FAQ will go through all the levels, and all of the tasks you need to 
complete to advance the ranks on superstar superiority. 

----------------------------------------------------------------
2. 	FAQs
----------------------------------------------------------------

	Q1. How do you beat the Defeat A Legend task for the legend tasks?

		A. Answer is below... I has some problems with this to. All you need
		to do is set the Difficulty in options to Legend, and defeat the 
		computer then.

	Q2. How do i Defend/Challenge a Title?

		A. Once you learn what to do its kinda easy, First
		you need to make a title, (Duh), Then all you have to do is 
		(while in your profile) do a one on one match(or a tag match 
		depending on the title). It HAS to be in the Single match menu. 
		You have to vs the computer or a person with another
		profile. Then after selecting all wrestler it will ask, 
		"Do you want aChampionship Match" select yes, pick your title and it 
		will be on the line

	Q3. When i am playing story mode i dont get money for alot of matches. 
	    Also I did a cage match and it didnt count to the task. Is there 
	    something wrong with my game?

		A. It sounds like you did not get your profile selcted as your 
		active profile when you were doing story mode and your cage match.
		It has happend to me alot of times. Even though you need your 
		profile to create a wrestler, it doesnt mean that your profile 
		is selcted whenever you use that wrestler.

		Everytime you start the game, open your profile up, you should get 
		the money and complete tasks every time.

		And aside from the normal glitches, no i dont think there is
		anything wrong with your game

	Q4. How do i use Superstars entrance themes?

		To put it blunt the entrance themes in the games are only for 
		the respective wrestler. The only way to do it is to have the 
		song on a cd, download it to your xbox and selecting it for 
		your wrestler. Many people do not have a song on an official cd,
		so i will let you guys in on a secret that many people do not 
		know.

		Everyone knows that if you put a burnt audio CD into an xbox
		it will not be read as a cd. However if you turn a CD-RW 
		(CD re-writeable) into an audio cd the xbox is tricked into
		believeing it is actually a real cd. Therefore you can rip the 
		tracks onto your xbox without having the cd... 

		It works 100% percent of the time for me.... give it a try... 


More to come once asked....

----------------------------------------------------------------
3. 	Game Profiles
----------------------------------------------------------------

This is the first thing any person needs to do when they play the game.
The profiles enable many things. Firstly you need a profile to be able 
to create superstar for career mode, but it also to create a championship 
title to defend on your xbox (Or on live).

Not only does it allow this, but it also lets a person to purchase everything
you need from WWEShop, from additional attributes for your created superstar
to WWE Legends such as Mankind, The Rock, Andre the Giant and Bret Hart.
(If you have a high enough Prestige ranking)

The profiles also do a few other things. It lets you see your overall win\lose 
record, as well as a rundown on your last 20 matches. It lets you see your 
currentamount of cash so you know how long it will be to your next purchase. 
And it also shows your current number of attribute points, and held created 
titles.

----------------------------------------------------------------
4. 	Prestige
----------------------------------------------------------------

There are in total four prestige levels in this game. Amateur 
(Open from the Beginning), Rising Star, Superstar and Legend. Each of these are
important because they allow you to buy more in WWEShop. From the start any
Amateur ranked items are open to buy when you have the money. But the others you
have to work for.

Each Prestige level has an amount of tasks that you need to pass to go on to the
next. This Faq will explain hows to complete such a task.

----------------------------------------------------------------

	    of the wrestlers out of the match. made it one on one and really 
	    easy.

----------------------------------------------------------------
7.6	Win TLC Match
----------------------------------------------------------------

Just like all the other tasks where you have to win a match only this time
it's a TLC match. Its kinda easy, you would have already done at least one of 
these matches for fun.

What I did: Play the same way i did for the rest of these. Went up against a
	    non playing person

----------------------------------------------------------------
7.7	Win Battle Royal Match
----------------------------------------------------------------

Getting to the Harder Matches. You have to eliminate 4 people in this match
by throwing them over the top rope. Sounds easy but its not. Get the win 
and this task is completed.

What I Did: I played with 3 people for this, they never played it so i won 
	    easily.

----------------------------------------------------------------
7.8	Win Royal Rumble Match
----------------------------------------------------------------

Defiantly the hardest of all tasks. You starts of at position number one and
if you know how the rumble works, only 2 people have won it from there. Keep
the difficultylow, and pick your favourite, your going to be playing for 
about 30 mins. Look out for Submissions, its all the computer does to wear 
you down. be that last man standing to complete this hard task.

What i did: I played normally with Christian, his my fav. It took me 6 goes 
	    but i did it and got
	    $7,000+  for it, well worth the work.

----------------------------------------------------------------
7.9	Win Hell in a Cell Match
----------------------------------------------------------------

Easier then the Rumble, but still hard. Beat down your opponent in the most
gruelling match in WWE history. It works like a normal match, get the pin, 
you don't have to exit the ring, it will work like a normal single match if 
you don't, but if you leave the cell, don't get thrown off the 
top and this match will be easy.

What i did: I played in the ring the whole time, never left, beat the guy 
	    easily the first time

	    Then had fun beating the hell out of him in a second match after 
	    i passed the task. 

----------------------------------------------------------------
7.10	Defeat a Legend
----------------------------------------------------------------

Many people ask me on forums how to do this match. Its really simple. Most 
people try to wrestle a Legend the they have opened along the lines, its sound 
like what you should do. But its actually telling you to defeat a wrestler on 
the games Hardest difficulty. Not easy at all if you have only been going 
against easy. Beat the computer on Legend in ANY match, and you will complete 
all the tasks in this game

What i Did: I had fun with this. I put Nidia into a Last Man Standing match and 
just beat the hell out of her. Her low stats, and Triple H's High stats made the
match very easy. I used weapon and everything, it took about 15 mins to do. She 
kept getting up. Get her head into the red, and then hit her over the 
head with ANY object, it will knock her out cold for the 10.

Thanks to Ralph Baggs for the Folowing information
---------------------------------------------------------------- 
Also, once you get one profile to Legend status, if
you beat that profile on any difficulty, that will
count as well.

----------------------------------------------------------------
7.11	Rewards
----------------------------------------------------------------

For finishing the Final tasks a reward of $500,000 is yours, this
will help you open up anything you need later on in the game.

Also from now on you purchase ANYTHING that has ANY Prestige
Rating level in the WWEShop. including Andre who is to expensive and I haven't 
gotten yet.
