Wrestlemania 21 Rematch

Match: Single without manager

Superstars: Kurt vs Shawn

Arena: Wrestlemania 21

Beat Shawn in the match. This is hard, but is is
easy enough once he is weakened down. Use your submission

move, but work on the legs and back.

This match is easy given Hogan's stats. Make sure you
reverse anything you are given and it should finish quickly
He should get weakened after a while, but use the running
Sweet Chin Music and Forearm when needed.



ECW Rematch

Match: Single without manager

Superstars: Benoit vs Guerrero

Arena: ECW One Night Stand

Defeat Guerrero

Easy enough given how durable Benoit is. Lock the
crossface in as soon as you get it. He will counter a lot
though so use lots of reversals, then get some quick
grapples in.


3.6)Rest in Peace

Match: Buried Alive

Kane down, then bury him in the casket. Also, I suggest
that you use Power Grapple, then the Chokeslam to weaken
Kane down.



Future Wrestlemania Match

Match: Single without manager

Arena: Wrestlemania 21

Beat Batista at the event

Batista is a lot stronger than Cena. I recommend that you
do a lot of striking moves, and do the FU as soon as

Match: 6 Man Battle Royal

Superstars: RVD vs Eddie, Benoit, Tajiri, Mysterio and
Chris Jericho

Arena: ECW One Night stand

Defeat all these guys in the Royal

This is going to be your toughest challenge yet.

and capitalise where possible. RVD has a lot of powerful
kicks so use those as well.



Evolution Rematch

Match: Fatal Four Way Hell in The Cell

Superstars: Triple H vs Flair vs Orton vs Batista

This is quite hard but possible. HHH is perhaps the best
guy in the match. Use the spinebuster on everyone to
weaken them down, then capitalise with a pedigree. And, as
with any other match with everyone against everyone, wait
until the others do a finisher, then try to steal the win.



Cruiserweight Challenge

Match: 1 on 2 Handicap match

This is easy. These guys, while fighting together, are
easy to get off. Use the strong strikes, then power
grapples to weaken the guys down, then Showstopper them.



Vengeance rematch

Arena: Vengeance

he should be easy pickings. Just use the chokeslam when
ready to pin.

This is hard as Cena is a lot better than Carlito. Since
there are weapons scattered around backstage, use them a
lot to get the win. Use whatever you can. It will be hard
but it can be done




Match: Tag match

Superstars: Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair vs John Cena, Randy Orton

Beat the young guys. Hard as the old guys are not as

win the match in time.



E vs C in TLC

1_2_3 and the challenge.



Survivor Series Rematch

Match: 6 man Elimination Chamber

Superstars: HBK vs HHH, Booker T, Kane, RVD and Jericho

Beat these guys

I have now found out that it does not matter where you start off in the match
but the strategy is the same. Pick a high number, when you come out, if
others are still around, hide while the others
fight, and keep on taunting to get a special. Then, come in
and do the Sweet chin Music

do Stunner, and if needed, another stunner.



Wrestlemania 3 Rematch

Match: Single

Superstars: 1980's Hogan vs Andre

Arena: Wrestlemania IX

This one will really annoy you. Use a second player if you cannot win. Use
the Big Boot and strikes to the max as Hogan cannot lift Andre. If you have
a special and he is on the ground, do the Leg Drop



Wrestlemania 18 Rematch

Match: Single

Superstars: Rock vs Hollywood Hogan

Arena: Wrestlemania 21

Beat Hogan

Superstars: Angle and 80's Hogan against Hassan and Daivari

Beat Hassan and Daivari

to win.



Goliath vs Goliath

Match: Single

Superstars: Show vs Andre

Beat Andre The Giant

While Andre has slightly better stats than Show, it does not mean that he
cannot be beat. Use your Big Boot (Down and X), and power grapples a lot.
When ready, do The Showstopper for the 1 2 3


The Great Britain

Make Bulldog Bleed

This one will take up some time. Just use weapons is what I
recommend. As soon as he is cut open, you win the



Old Dog, New Tricks

Match: Ironman

Superstars: Eugene vs Junkyard Dog

Beat JYD

Eugene has a far better moveset than JYD and has stronger
moves so use them. JYD grapples a lot so counter a lot.
If you get a pin, avoid JYD. This way, he cannot pin you.

This one is fun and realistic. I recommend that you do the

then another German, then escape the cage
