This Year's Inductee Achievement Help

Click 24/7 Mode
Play as WWE General Manager
Pick Raw (Cause they get first pick) Well sometimes.
Draft new rosters
Pick Shawn Michaels & Rey Mysterio.
No on this part you may find that another show will take one of these. I did it with these guys so I just back out untill I have signed up both wrestlers (I done year contract) seriously money will not be an issue here!
Once you have both stars hit continue
(Are you sure you want to leave the draft?) pick YES
Clean/Dirty Turn - Shawn Michales change to Dirty
Set Champions - one as wwe Champion, and one as intercontinental
Accept! Yes proceed!
So first part is done. Now this part is simple. Yet there have been some miss comunications so follow closely,
Skip the cinem..

Into the crowd.

When playing in an ECW Extreme rules match and your are playing as a high flying superstar, go outside the ring, and do a roll, with a taunt immediately after.
(Roll toward barricade).
If you do it correctly, when you do the crowd taunt, you'll end up in the crowd. It may take a few attempts.

Parking lot glitch!

First, you need to be a brawler. Then go out and save your brawler special. Activate it and go on top of the firetruck. Then press X and you will fall through the truck and be able to run around through cars and the limo and ya

easy money

To get easy money go to the superstar mode. SElect and superstar and once you get to the calendar simulate to wresltemania. You should Have easily more than 100000 dollars

How to choose anybody you want in GM mode

First you start the GM mode, but before you go to draft superstar go to edit avaliable roster and turn everybody you wan't off, you can only pick 25.. After you pick them go back and draft a roster you don't have to pick a very big roster I only picked 2 people... Then go to the magazine thing, go to edit current roster and turn everybod you picked on, start the week and do your show with the 2 or how ever many people you have simulate the rest of the week and the next week you go to the magazeine on your desk at the menu screen go to free agency and everybod you picked will be there for your choosing!!!

Online play

When playing with CAWs (Created superstars) have your created wrestlers moveset all targeting the same body part.
Doing this will get your opponent red much, much quicker.
I recomend targetting the head, as there are many powerful moves that damage it, and it takes less damage points, than the torso can.
Hope the gets you a few fair wins.

play dirty

When you know you are going to lose go over to the ref a take him down when he is out cold for a while go get the ring bell and ring your opponents bell
A few times but stop when the ref is coming up
ps you can onely do this about 2 time without getting DQ by the ref

Take your time! (online)

If your opponet is in the ring, and your outside, your going to get nailed when you come in. So don't come in! If they start yelling at you to hurry up, turn your mic off, do not let them rush you, just wait for them to do something stupid like taunt or go out of the ring. If your on the inside and they are out, do the same thing, just be pacient, wait for them to do something stupid and hit them hard without mercy.

GM Mode: Easy victory.

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.

Only these two superstars will be needed this time around, so click on continue, and the other 2 brands will select their rosters. You also must make sure that one superstar is a clean, and one is a dirty superstar. This is to make su..

Weapon glitch (chairs mostley)

When getting a chair,(only works if hardcore is one of the fighti ng styles of the superstar) you can do a Con-Chair-To,set chair on the neck and stomp,or set chair on the leg and stomp,you will not get DQ'd and you will get an easy victory.

How to make 24/7 Mode (Superstar) so much easier

(You need multiple controllers for this.)
Before your matches, there is almost always the option on which superstar you want to control. Have yourself control your 24/7 superstar, and have the other controller(s) "control" the opponent(s). At the match, your opponent(s) will be doing absolutely nothing. Just knock them down, pin them. You will always get the 3-count, and 24/7 making money will be so much easier.

Cheev tip.

When going for the 15 chairs and 10 tables destroyed achievement, you must destroy the chairs by striking them, and no grapples, otherwise it will not count, and you'll get annoyed, etc etc .

Why is it that...

THQ keep hiring writers for Svr games that have the same English Language level of a 1st grader?

If you look closely at the WWE Magazine article after your first match in the Roddy Piper storyline, the mag bills him from Glasrow not Glasgow, GlasROW.
And Steph Mcmahon is one of the only names to be used in UPPER CASE on the game,
Just as it was for NITRO MELINA VISCERA and several other in 2007.

Couple of Codes you Might Like

I was playing WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2008, and while playing I found a couple of codes that was intresting to me to use, when using D-Generation X, and too just see what kind of costumes Kelly Kelly would have to make her look even better.
For the attire of D-Generation X's Triple H and Shawn Michaels, go to the Cheat Code menu accessed in Options, type in DXCostume69K2 and press Start or go to done.
For the attire of Kelly Kelly, enter into the cheat screen like above, going into Options and select Cheat Code, type in KellyKG12R and press Start or go to done.
I hope you found these useful and continue to use Cheats, Hints and more submitted by me. I also help out in answers too, don't be afriad to ask.

unlock all the ppv stages

Go to the hall of fame and complete the challenges like every 3 challenges completed you will unlock a new stage

Ladder Match instant win (any difficulty)

This is a way to win a ladder match and you only will have to hit your opponet once. First, get oyut of the ring, bring a ladder in, then leave the ring, let your opponet climb the ladder and grab the belt, then go up the ladder with him, and do nothing, wait until he has the belt meter down to almost nothing, then hit him, and use the analong stick to push him, grab the title , and it will be yours befor he gets up. I really hope they fix this for 2009, the AI MUST be smarter now a days I mean...come on that was WAY too easy right? Payce gamer tag - Devo77
