C. Challenges [CHL]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Challenges can be done in any order. The Hall of Fame mode is accessible under
Game Modes then Hall of Fame.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++
- January 22, 1995 [CHL-1]
++++++++++++++++++++++++++

> Arena: Royal Rumble
> Date: January 22, 1995
> Goal: Using any superstar in Exhibition: 30-Man Royal Rumble mode, arrive 1st
in the ring and then win on Legend Difficulty.

> Introduction: In 1995, Shawn Michaels made sports entertainment history by
entering the Royal Rumble match as the 1st participant, and outlasting 29 other
Superstars to stand victorious in the end. The Showstopper was the first
first Superstar to ever achieve this feat, and in doing so, gave a new
definition to the term intestinal fortitude. Now its your turn to follow his
footsteps.

Strategy: I suggest using any Super Heavyweight superstar to ease out this
challenge. After picking that Super Heavyweight Superstar, select all the Light
Heavyweight superstars from the Royal Rumble superstar selection screen. Pick
Rey Mysterio, as he is the only Cruiserweight superstar in the game. After all
Light Heavyweight Superstars are all selected, go with the Heavyweights.

In the match, try to let other superstars beat each other up before eliminating
them. Outlasting 29 other superstars is hard so stay in the corner as much as
possible so you could take a break. Eliminate the last superstar to win.

++++++++++++++++++++++++
- March 31, 1996 [CHL-2]
++++++++++++++++++++++++

> Arena: WrestleMania
> Date: March 31, 1996
> Goal: Using Shawn Michaels in Direct Challenge Mode, defeat Bret Hart in a
One on One 30-Minute Iron Man Match on Legend Difficulty.

> Introduction: In WrestleMania XII, The Heartbreak Kid and The Excellence of
Execution delivered what would come to be known as the greatest WrestleMania
match in history. Test your Endurance and recreate this legendary battle by
fighting your way through to the very end.

Strategy: For me, this is the first challenge I took. This is simple. The Match
Rules that you set in the Options Menu will affect this challenge so I suggest
you use weapons. I usually forgot to set the DQ off so I have to fight Bret
Hart without the use of weapons. The strategy here is to punch him when Bret
Hart is about to grapple you. Make good use of Shawn Michaels' speed, as he's
one of the fastest wrestlers in the game.

++++++++++++++++++++++++
- March 23, 1997 [CHL-3]
++++++++++++++++++++++++

> Arena: WrestleMania
> Date: March 23, 1997
> Goal: Using Bret Hart in Direct Challenge Mode, defeat Stone Cold in a
Submission match on Legend Difficulty.

> Introduction: At WrestleMania 13, Bret Hitman Hart and Stone Cold Steve
Austin squared off in a brutal submission match that helped user in the
Attitude era of World Wrestling Entertainment. Experience this confrontation
again as somebody is going to tap... will it be you?

Strategy: This one is also easy because Bret Hart is a Submission superstar so
you can't get off the ring just like there in SvR 2007. Stone Cold won't be a
nuisance superstar so try your best to beat him. Use diving moves as much as
possible. Target his legs so that he could easily tap out to your Sharpshooter.

++++++++++++++++++++++++
- April 13, 1997 [CHL-4]
++++++++++++++++++++++++

> Arena: ECW
> Date: April 13, 1997
> Goal: Using any Superstar, defeat Tommy Dreamer, Sabu and Sandman in ECW
Extreme Rules match of Fatal 4-Way at ECW arena on Legend Difficulty.

> Introduction: On April 13, 1997, ECW kicked the door open and burst onto the
national wrestling scene by putting on their 1st PPV event. Now it's time for
you to step into the ring with three ECW Originals and enter the House Of
Extreme!

Strategy: This is maybe a bit hard because all of the superstars that you will
be facing are all Hardcore experts! Pick out any superstar that has high
overall like John Cena (has the highest overall in the game). I picked Edge
here and put the title on the line because he is a hardcore expert too. Use
Edge's Hardcore Resurrection to heal part of your limbs whenever necessary.

+++++++++++++++++++++++
- June 28, 1998 [CHL-5]
+++++++++++++++++++++++

> Arena: Vengeance
> Date: June 28, 1998
> Goal: Using Undertaker in Direct Challenge Mode, defeat Mick Foley in a Hell
in a Cell match on Legend Difficulty.

> Introduction: There is no introduction needed for one of the most famous
matches in WWE History. Dare to climb into the sadistic Hell in a Cell
structure and experience this legendary bout for yourself, but be forewarned...
you may not walk out the same man.

Strategy: At the start of the match, get out quickly of the ring. Push the door
so that you will be outside the cell. Quickly go up and wait for Mick Foley to
go up also. When you're both there, quickly put him down the cell by doing any
slam or some lift up attacks on the middle of the cell. There are two of them
so after the first cell is done, you should arrive at the ring because you fell
down. Now you can do your Rampage and do it to Mick Foley. The Rampage lets you
endure the attacks without falling to the ground. Use it when you get the
chance and win.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++
- August 28, 2000 [CHL-6]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++

> Arena: SummerSlam
> Date: August 28, 2000
> Goal: Using any two Superstars, defeat The Hardys in a Two on Two TLC Match
in SummerSlam on Legend Difficulty.

> Introduction: Matt & Jeff Hardy made a name for themselves by constantly
putting their bodies on the line, paving the way for a new daredevil style of
in-ring performance. Do you have what it takes to go up against Team Extreme in
one of their trademark TLC matches?

Strategy: I don't have a good strategy here. Pick on Matt Hardy because his
overall is lower than his brother Jeff. Basically, diving moves works better on
Jeff as well but be forewarned, he will counter almost every diving move you
make. Use weapons at your advantage to deal massive damage to the brothers.

++++++++++++++++++++++++
- March 26, 2001 [CHL-7]
++++++++++++++++++++++++

> Arena: None
> Date: March 26, 2001
> Goal: Play in GM of WWE 24/7 Mode and obtain GM of the Year award.

> Introduction: On March 26, 2001, Vincent Kennedy McMahon shocked the sports
entertainment world by purchasing World Championship Wrestling and ending the
Monday Night Wars. Make Mr. McMahon proud by demonstrating once again that he
who laughs last, truly laughs best.

Strategy: Achievable in GM Mode. You can put your second player controller to
either RAW or SmackDown!. The first controller should choose either the three
brands before the second controller does or Vice-versa. The Match Card will
only be filled with 5 slots this time unlike there in SvR 2007, which has a
total of 6 slots. Now just go up until you reach WrestleMania and get that
championship belt or defend it to that same brand Superstar to complete this
challenge.

+++++++++++++++++++++++
- April 1, 2001 [CHL-8]
+++++++++++++++++++++++

> Arena: WrestleMania
> Date: April 1, 2001
> Goal: Using Stone Cold in Direct Challenge Mode, defeat The Rock on Legend
Difficulty.

> Introduction: The Texas Rattlesnake and The Great One added another chapter
to their long running feud, this time in front of 67,925 fans. Relive this epic
encounter from WrestleMania 17.

Strategy: This is a bit of a challenge. The Rock will always counter the
attacks your attacking him with. Stone Cold has a lesser Overall than The Rock
so just pick him up with submissions or weapons. It doesn't matter. The Rock
will always do his The People's Elbow when your down.

+++++++++++++++++++++++
- April 3, 2005 [CHL-9]
+++++++++++++++++++++++

> Arena: WrestleMania
> Date: April 3, 2005
> Goal: On Legend Difficulty, create a Money in the Bank match with Mr.
Kennedy, Edge, Matt Hardy, Finlay, Jeff Hardy and defeat them with any
remaining Superstar.

> Introduction: WrestleMania 21 showcased the first ever Money in the Bank
Ladder Match, that quickly became a staple at the The Granddaddy of Them All.
Now, battle it out with all three past winners and grab that briefcase!

Strategy: It's a tough battle so I suggest leaving this for awhile. Pick out
any superstar who has an excellent Overall and use him to brawl one superstar
at a time. I picked Undertaker and tried to pick Jeff Hardy out. He is easy to
defeat. So I picked Finlay as second, then Matt Hardy, Edge and Mr. Kennedy as
the last. Usually, it doesn't have to be in this order though. When in doubt,
take a rest outside the ring and let the opponents brawl each other. It took me
only 20 minutes to finish up this hard challenge.

++++++++++++++++++++++++
- April 3, 2005 [CHL-10]
++++++++++++++++++++++++

> Arena: None
> Date: April 3, 2005
> Goal: Create a WWE Championship title and raise its prestige to the highest
possible value.

> Introduction: When John Cena won the WWE Championship title at WrestleMania
21, he wasted no time putting his own spin on sports entertainment's richest
prize by creating his very own custom Championship title. Now its up to you to
do the same.

Strategy: This challenge is pretty simple. Earn at least $50,000 cash or more
then go to Create a WWE Championship belt under Create Mode. Just purchase the
most expensive items you can afford on. Then go back to Hall of Fame to get a
message "April 3, 2005 was cleared".

+++++++++++++++++++++++
- May 25, 2006 [CHL-11]
+++++++++++++++++++++++

> Arena: None
> Date: May 25, 2006
> Goal: Using any Superstar, win the King of the Ring Tournament of Tournament
Mode on Legend Difficulty.

> Introduction: The King of the Ring Tournament has launched the careers of WWE
greats Bret Hart, Steve Austin, Triple H and Edge. The contest returned in 2006
where Booker T was victorious. Can you become The King of the World?

Strategy: Any Superstar will do here. Just win the match. I used King Booker.
Pick out Light Heavyweights first so that when you face them, you can just win
the match quickly.

++++++++++++++++++++++++
- June 12, 2006 [CHL-12]
++++++++++++++++++++++++

> Arena: RAW
> Date: June 12, 2006
> Goal: Create a Stable and max-out its Teamwork Attributes. Then use this
Stable to defeat D-Generation X in a Two on Two Tag Team Match on Legend
Difficulty.

> Introduction: The June 12, 2006 edition of Monday Night RAW featured the
return of arguably the most popular stable of all-time, D-Generation X. Now,
build up a Tag Team Stable of your own and show Triple H and Shawn Michaels
that D-Generation X is a thing of the past.

Strategy: You can just spam them both with some weapons and put one of them in
the announcers table to damage all of the limbs. Toe Kick usually works here
because it damages all of the enemy's limbs. Pick weapons and bash them with
it. Win the match by pinfall or submission.
