To pick up an easy victory, in just over a year (A month or two after WrestleMania) follow this section, thoroughly, and you shall pick up your GM of the Year Trophy, and your 350 GamerScore, without doubt.

Start of a fresh GM Mode, so we�re on the same page. Choose to be RAW, as you get to select you superstars last, and will know whether you have to restart, or not. Select New Draft, so you can select your own �Roster�.

Pick two, high profile superstars, taking Shawn Michaels, and Rey Mysterio for example, and give them each a one year contract.

24/7 GM mode easy win

When you start a new season as a GM and you have picked your brand (I chose RAW) before selecting to do a draft go to "Edit available superstars" (I think that's what it is) and turn off as much people from the other brands as you can. Now click on "Use current rosters" (I think that's what it says) and then you have loads of superstars and the other 2 brands have only 3 or 4 superstars. When you are doing this make sure that the people that you switch off are from the brands that you did not choose

New inclusions

The new features in the game are the even dirtier tactics that dirty superstars have e.g. Randyrton can hide behind the referee andthrow him into the opponent or he can perform ca-chair-dos on his opponent. Powerhouse superstars can kick out of pins powerfully throwing some people across the ring.


To regain your stamina in a match, hold select. Simple as that.

Super table finisher.

On the Extreme rules match, or a table match get both the tables, and put them in the ring. Then set a table up right in front of a turnbuckle. Next, grab the other table, and stack it up on top of the other one. Then when you get a special, throw the opponents into the tables, and press triangle. You should be superplexing an opponent through two tables.

It's cool to do.

How to win general manager mode

An easy way to win general manager mode is get superstars you like (not based on popularity say you like Snitsky but he has low popularity pick him anyway) you then turn fatigue off then (this does not work with females) do the trophy date option when you are free and not doing shows keep doing this to every superstar is 100 popularity and then even though you might be losing at the start you will win and say you want Undertaker and Triple H who you unfortinantly didn't get use the likes of william regal who is a hundred and do a two for one deal then make them 100 by the way even a plain old single match for no title will be 4 star and easy to get five star matches and ppv

Quick Cash in WWE 24/7 mode

This is easy WWE cash in WWE 24/7 Mode. Once you start your Character, weather it be a WWE superstar, or Created wrestler, go into the calander for your events. Play your first fight, then on Raw and ECW events, press X, and it will give you a menu. The menu will give you these choices.: Training Exercises, Skill Improvement, Events & Activities, Invade Today's Show. Go to Events & Activities. Find the option that says "Movie Event" and press X. Each time you do this, it will give you $2,000-$4,000, yet it will also cause 20% fatigue. Do this in a 24/7 mode you are not serious about beating, or becoming a legend in, and you will make good cash quick.

Now you will be able to unlock the availible items, in the WWE Shop. You can restart your 24/7 mode and still have your cash. So..

Direct Challenge Mode

To activate direct challenge mode, simply go to the challenge you want to compete in a press x.

NOTE: only a few of the challenges can be direct challenge. The ones that are not direct challenge are :

The Hardys

Easy royal rumble

To win the royal rumble easily, irish whip your opponent over the top rope then strike him at least 4 times then grapple him and he should easily be eliminated. Do quik strikes it's faster. It works better when your 1 or 2 because when you eliminate 1 or 2, you could just wait for 3 to come out, then eliminate him and so on and so on

Easy Money In The Bank

Ok,these usually range from 20-60 minutes tops,but you MUST get either a Hardcore or a hIgh-Flyer superstar,and when the match starts,use the ladder the whole time,you will get full momentum and you can do your finisher,or store it for Hardcore Rejuvenation.But wait to the case is at about 3/4 low,then go for it (you should have knocked everyone out exept the guy on the ladder) punch the guy and knock him off,then go for the briefcase,you should be able to get it easily now,if someone comes up,just get off,wait for someone else to get on the ladder,then knock them off.Then go back up again and get it!You should be able to win by now.Easy MITB win

A Deformed Wrestler

When you go to create a wrestler, put the leg morphing height to -100. Go to fight in a Falls Count Anywhere match and do the finisher on the announce table. Watch your wrestler's arms on the ropes while your other part of your wrestler be on the turnbuckle. It looks like a deformed human

Game error.

People, just know that nothing is wrong with your game when you make an entrance with fireworks, and they don't show up. If you go to to 24/7 mode, they won't show up. In some matches in exhibition mode, they also won't show up.

Also, in 24/7 mode, after JBL/cole, or J.R./king get done talking your music MIGHT not come on. Another error.

They obviously didn't care, or they were rushed.

Easy Mone In The Bank Win

Grb the ladder that's outside the ring then keep hitting evryone with it til they all get red (do finishers if you want)than put the ladder in the middle of the ring climb it than move and hold the two analog up an keep on doing the same thing until you win (after they are red just hit all of the other superstars until they are all on the mat and repeat he steps above and you will win

Hope this works!!!!!!!

Also please rate me!!!!!!!

More errors.

After you've played enough in 24/7 mode to buy all the extra move sets, go to create-a move set. Something like that. Go to finishers, and find sweet chin music 2, press square to see a preview. Instead of showing the sweet chin music, it'll show the opponent get off the ground, and stumble over to the right, while your person runs forward, and kicks the air. The opponent will still fall.

Kinda funny to see.

Also notice how the opponent was standing between the ropes.

Go look at clothesline 2. It'll show the opponent barely get hit like he should, but he'll still fall, even though he didn't get hit with your person's arm.

A few more errors to submit.

More mess-ups.

In 24/7 mode, get to the storyline where Shane and Stephanie want you to send a message to some superstars who are snooping around. Now keep playing till you get to the match where you have to fight king booker, and HHH in a handicap match. Click on the calendar and bring up the matches for your brand. It should show your guy vs. Triple H, and King Booker. Now notice It says one on tag. Now, what should it say?

It should say one on two tag handicap. Big mess up. Even if you press start during the match, and bring up the match rules, It'll say One on tag. Another big mess up is in 24/7 mode. When I was in RAW, out of the blue tommy dreamer contacted me, and told me that since I didn't have any respect for ECW, an extremist would come, and beat it into me. Anyway, a month later ..

Table on fire.

In an Extreme rules match here's how you light a table on fire. Keep fighting until you get your momentum bar filled, and blinking rapidly. Then go over to the table, that's in the ring, and press triangle to do your special. The person should throw something on the table, and it will light up. You can also do the same thing to the 2 x 4 with barbwire wrapped around it.

Hope this helps.

Not in General Manager Mode

If some of you are wondering, JBL isn't included on the General Manager Mode. He is a commentator on the game. But you can still play him on Exhibition.

Update for non forum users.

There will be a new, 24/7 mode, seemingly taking place of GM Mode and Career Mode.

The aim of 24/7 mode, will be to wrestle your way to becoming a WWE Legend. This will take more than the old version of winning as WrestleMania, as you have different set objectives to complete throughout your career to achieve the Legendary status.

There will be more to do, as a created superstar, Rookie just starting, it will take you longer to become legend, than it would you being established superstar.
